Prophets of the Dark Side

Sourcebook/Guide Quotes


One of these secrets concerns a small group of dark side devotees called the Prophets of the Dark Side. Led by the Supreme Prophet Kadann, these darksiders use their powers and abilities to explore the dark side of the Force and make predictions on the outcomes of plans, strategies and upcoming events.

- Taken from Rebellion Era Sourcebook


They explore the dark side, making predictions on plans and upcoming events.



Eventually, Darth Sidious discovered the secret order, and bent these Prophets of the Dark Side to his will. When the Prophets were obliquely reintegrated into Darth Bane's line of the Sith, Palpatine secretly gave them the duty of providing early training for some of his dark siders. Occasionally, Palpatine asked the Prophets to train a devotee to the exalted levels of Emperor's Hand, Emperor's Eyes, or Emperor's Reach.

- Taken from Evil Never Dies: The Sith Dynasties


They were given the duty of providing the early training of Palpatine's Dark Force Users, even training his Hands, Eyes and Reach.

Lesser Prophets know how to affect minds, enhance their senses, defend from Force Attacks, Force Stealth, TK and See Force. They also have a dark side talisman which bolsters their abilities.


Created by the same dark alchemy used to create Sith amulets, Sith talismans provide the wearer with defense against blaster bolts, lightsaber blades, and even the Force itself.

"I have met these reclusive cretins and listened to their singsong prophecies. They do posses the gift of futuresight, which proved useful to my forces at the Battle of Dromund Kass. But the Prophets themselves admit they have hunted down heretics and imitations."

―Asajj Ventress.

- Taken from Book of Sith


Ventress has encountered them, noting their power of futuresight being useful and how they have hunted down heretics and imitations.

An actual Prophet is able to make Force Storms, Futuresight, TK, Mind Trick, proficient in lightsabers.


The planet remains a well-kept secret exclusive to the prophets until its discovery by Darth Sidious. It then becomes an early training ground for Palpatine's Force-sensitive minions. In the Old Republic era, heroes may have heard rumors about this dark side religion and seek Dromund Kaas to either destroy or practice the malevolent faith. During the Emperor's reign, adventurers on the planet would have to be darksiders working for Palpatine or Prophets-in-training.

Whether serving the light or darkness, heroes visiting Dromund Kaas will find themselves undergoing grave challenges. Swamp wampas,* dianogas, vornskrs, Guardian Spirits, and Noghri abominations** all infest the dark side bog world.

- Taken from the Dark Forces Saga


One of the worlds where the Prophets are located is Dromund Kaas at the Dark Force Temple, Palpatine's Force Sensitives train their and undergo grave challenges from what is on the world.




He gathers these Force sensitive fortunetellers, some of them former Jedi, and gives them a new mission. They are to use their gifts to protect the Empire from unknown threats and to help Lord Vader hunt down the remaining Jedi.

The Prophets of the Dark Side seek out others like themselves. Those who cannot be molded into Prophets are trained to become other dark side servants. If they resist the wiles of the Prophets, they are eliminated. In fact, their gift of prophecy snuffs out quite a few bright lights in an otherwise dark time.

- Jedi Academy Training Manual

Some Prophets are former Jedi, they also help Vader hunt down Jedi and see others out, if they resist they are destroyed. Their powers so great that they actually kill some bright lights within the galaxy. Meaning those who could perhaps make a difference in opposing the Empire.

Sourcebook/Guide Quotes

- Taken from Polyhedron 103


She is able to control Wookiees and Force Wraiths to fight for her, also being a Nightsister of Dathomir, impressing Supreme Prophet Kadann.

Cronal spent many years with them on Dromund Kaas, perfecting his aptitude for Darksight and passing it on to the raven-haired Nightsister and prophetess Merili, whom he considered his greatest pupil. Inculcated by Cronal with such mania, Merili amalgamated this skill with learnings in Aing-Tii flow-walking, Dathomirian Heartshadow and her own dark side deconstructions of spacetime — superseding her guru’s own proficiency notwithstanding her being driven supertemporally insane.

- Taken from The Imperial Warlords Despoilers of the Empire


Was trained by Cronal in the use of Darksight, combining it with Flow Walking.


Her power doesn't match Kadann's or Jedgar's, but many believe her to be the most dangerous of the Prophets for one reason- she's totally insane. One moment she's calm, her voice measured, the next she's shrieking, animated, and wild.

As a youth studying at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, he was troubled by dark dreams that had a frightening habit of coming to pass. He had nightmares of the Clone Wars and the Jedi Purge years before either event occurred. Though filled with a talent for seeing the future, Jedgar frightened the other students and could find no Jedi Knight to accept him as an apprentice.

Supreme Prophet Kadann


Spoiler:


Prophets of the Dark Side respect thread(Legends) 5368548-7104969188-latest


Sourcebook/Guide Quotes



The true Supreme Prophet of the Dark Side, Kadann was a black-bearded dwarf who wore dark robes tha appeared to be cut from the fabric of space itself, with stars gleaming in its inky depths. During the time of the Republic, Kadann was a Jedi Knight. More of a thinker and philosopher than a man of action, Kadann strove to understand the ancient prophecies that concerned the balance of the Force.

To these ends, Kadann struggled to reconcile balance with adhering to only the light side of the Force. He came to believe that dark and light in equal measures were needed to truly master and understand the Force.

- Taken from the Dark Side Sourcebook


Former Jedi Knight, striving to understand the balance of the Force, coming to believe both sides were needed mastery to truly understand it.



In time, he turned away from the Jedi Code and started to experiment with dark side powers. While his intentions may have been good, Kadann still managed to stray onto the path of corruption. He traveled the galaxy, exploring his theories and meditating on the dark side.

- Taken from the Dark Side Sourcebook


Was eventually corrupted, traveling the galaxy, exploring theories and meditating on the dark side.



When Kadann looked deep into the dark side prior to the Battle of Endor, he saw a myriad of possibilities. One of the strongest was the return of balance to the Force and the end of the Empire.

- Taken from the Dark Side Sourcebook


He saw the end of the Empire being the strongest of possibilities at the Battle of Endor.

- Taken from Polyhedron 103


Jedgar is the most ambitious, he wants power and doesn't want to wait, but he's too afraid to oppose Kadann who is much more powerful than he is.






Kadann isn't a villain to be fought, but rather outmaneuvered. He rarely even puts on a display of power and never stoops to using Force Lighting the way the Emperor did. He could destroy those who oppose him in an instant, but usually simply leaves if violence is used against him.

- Taken from Polyhedron 103


He isn't one to be fought, can also use Force Lighting and could destroy those who oppose him in an instant, but usually just leaves if there's violence against him.



The mysterious darksider called Azrakel was an experiment born in the mind of the Emperor and given life by the High Prophet Kadann. In secret and with the raw power of the dark side, Kadann recreated Azrakel. He trained the young man as he had been taught, providing him with the mentoring necessary to harness his power and strengthen his abilities. As Azrakel, the young man grew strong in body and in the Force. He became Kadann's secret weapon, his tool for performing covert acts that increased his own power and prestige.

- Taken from the Dark Side Sourcebok


He trained Azrakel, a mysterious darksider, training him to harness his power and strengthen his abilites, becoming a secret weapon.

@Zenwolf Which issues of Polyhedron are canon and which are not?

"I do want to clarify that the old Polyhedrons, to my knowledge are unofficial. There were a few Star Wars articles in Dungeon/Polyedron magazine that were published after April 2003 that are official." - Leland Chee

If this statement from Chee is real, it would mean anything before April 2003 is non-canon. Its veracity is supported by this sw.com article which states Polyhedron "will now" - meaning after March 19th, 2003 - printing articles for the roleplaying game.

I have a hard time believing any Wookiee quote with no actual source linked to it. That and the site can be unreliable. 
 
As far as the other site. Not sure why that would invalidate the others before. Still if you can find that quote as being legitimate then I will rectify. It’s Lee’s call. Though even that quote seems unsure as he supposed said “to my knowledge.”
