I'm new to this forum, this is in fact my first post, so I'm sorry if this is off topic, but I posted my theory on the true sith a while ago on another forum, saying that they are not part of the sith, and therefore, no human/ non "true sith" could be part of them, here is my theory, beware, it's very long:
"The jedi knights use the force not for their own needs, but to preserve peace and justice within the galaxy.
The sith, however, aspire to aspire to manipulate and control the force for their own will.
It is tought throughout the galaxy that are mysterious thought controls the very galaxy, and whatever we do, whatever are our actions, they will all eventually lead down the same path guided by the force.
What if these "true sith" were "true sith" because they truley controlled the force, not to hurl enemies in the air, not to even control minds, no they went far beyond that, they controlled the very fate of the galaxy, through the force, they controlled everything.
Kreia realised this, and she realised the danger of the universe, so she aimed to destroy it. She tought her appreintice everything she knew, she sought for Revan to destroy it.
The mandalorian wars were brewing and the jedi did nothing, Revan recognised this as an act of the force, and realised it was controlling the jedi, so he left for war, wished to be free of the control of the force Somewhere along the lines, he began to look at the teachings of the sith, thinking that through their teachers, he would be able to control the force, and it would not have control over him.
The true sith were eagerly awaiting a reaction from the jedi, but they didn't get one, they feared that they had lost their power, so they sent a scout ship in search in order to determine what was happening.
The ship was soon found however, and fled, but by then, Revan had joined the war.
But he soon realised that an act of war was realy the will of the force after all, and so he set up Malachor V, weeded out the troops he did not need, and took all of his loyal army, those closest to him, into the depths of space, but it was too late to realise that he could not defeat them with an army, and in searching for them, he instead went down the lesser path of controlling the force, he fell to the dark side, and he thought he truely had control, but he was wrong.
Krea was distrought, having lost her apprietace, she went into hiding, looking for clues to his dissapearance, she visted Malachor V.
It was there she probably learnt about the Rakata, left behind by Revan, in the achadmey.
The Rakata infinite empire had control over many speacies, including the Sith'airi, and and learnt much, they even rivaled the truth sith, they had managed to infuse their technology with the force, such examples are the Star Forge.
Soon, they too would have control over the force, and would be able to face the true sith.
However, the true sith realised this, and stripped the Rakatar of their connection to the force, their empire, reliant, completly dependant on the force, crumbled, impacting the entire galaxy.
If true sith fled even further into the depths of the galaxy.
Kreia realised that you could not defeat them with an army, and decided instead to find a wound in the force, and rip it apart, destroying it, and it's control over everything, severing the true sith's power, and like the Rackatar, destroying them.
Since she knew how the true sith had defeated armies, should knew the weakness in one that did not see inverviduals, who saw beyond that, she used darth nilius as an opportunity, knowing that he could be defeated if she wished it, darth sion was also blind, but in this case, by desire, by passion, by lust for control that he could not have, but she underestimated him, and could not defeat him when she wished it, merely escape him, her pupil however could.
Revan, regaining memories of his previous self left to find the true sith, knowing no armies could defeat it, they saw on such a great scale that they could not see one indervidual, so he left alone, he suspected they were probably a small group, as it would destroy it'self with it's own size., so he would need no army.
Upon learning on the fate of her apprentace, Kreia sought to follow him, but knew herself as to weak, and instead trained the exile. When she knew she could not destroy the force, she instead used the hollowness of the exile, and told her to seek Revan, as the exile would not be effected, and was the ultamite weapon against the true sith, she was the lack of control, only she could destroy them.
So the exile left, knowing that she could take no one with her, perhaps merely being in the achadmey had rubbed off on her, and she had a sence of where to head.
But who are these true sith realy? Having said what I said, I would say the Whilis, they are seperated from the galaxy, watch over it, and yet are strangly attached, as if they are influencing it.
It is claimed that they were replaced by the force by Lucas, but what if they ARE the force.
Also, there is another theory that the Whilis are Yoda's speacies, futher upon my own theory, maybe some escaped, like Vandar, but lost their power, maybe Yoda joined the jedi order to make up for their speacies past.
Maybe the Whilis don't mean harm, yet the very fact that they are controlling everything is what pulls everyone against us, would be a nice discion to destroy them in the end or not.
Would be a realy interesting twist if your character wishes to take control of the force himself, best ending, evaaaa.
Also, I think Yoda's speaices as bad guys would be awesome, not in a pwnage kind of way, but because that even these noble creatures could not resist the ways of the sith, of control over the force.
The medi clorians however do not control the destiny of all, just the manipulation of life and matter, that is the true sith, or through the midi-clorians, the true sith control the galaxy.
It has been suggested that darth Plagius could create life, and influence midi-clorians, creating anakin, if he could do this, the true sith could control the medi clorians, and through them, everything.
However, it is suggested that the midi-clorians are sperate from the mystical side of the force, the side the true sith controls, in that case, they do not matter, since the true sith control a toatally different side of the force, unrelated to the midi-clorians.
The prohecy could have also been set by the true sith, maybe that was the only message they left to the rest of the galaxy.
But yes that is my theory, sorry it is a bit long, but I did think quite a bit over this, and am amazed that I could link so many things together."
Also, to add to my theory, Kriea specifically hates Atton, that is because as she states "the force looks out for one such as him", not only does she suggest that the force is intelligent, but it also that the true sith use fools such as atton, who people do not suspect of danger, in order to be a threat to the jedi, as he was, as well as in their own ways, because the jedi cannot read or predict them, or it is very difficult, she fears that Atton is a danger to the exile, and will too easily be controlled by the true sith, without them knowing.
To move my debate more along with the lines of the arguement here, because they are alien, and such a threat, and unlike anything we have ever seen before, no one we have encountered before in the KOTOR series could possibly be a true sith.
Also, because of the definitions of the true sith, or my interpretations of them, and that sith realy means control of the force, then the true sith aren't realy like the sith we know at all, if anything, they are like the original Sitharai, therefore, they do not have to necceraily be evil, therefore, it is very possible for the Whilis to be the true sith.
But even though they aren't evil, they are definally a threat, as I have said above.
