Aedra, also known as Aedrath - (lit. Way of Perfection), is one of the two dozen pre-industrial religions practice by the ancient Sith. Aedra became one of the primary religions of the Ancient Sith Empire( circa year -28,000 )till all of the religions were replaced by the cult worship of King Adas, who united the Sith and was able to defeat Rakatan invaders. Following the ensuing power struggles after the Adas, the religion was forgotten in the minds of the Sith and temples that once held ancient teachings were lost in many civil wars that resulted from lesser king ambitions to power. When the exiled Dark Jedi, survivors of the Hundred-Year Darkness, arrived on Korriban, the last trace of Aedraitic teachings on that planet were extinguished.

Aedra is a polytheistic religion and a philosophical interpretation of the Force. It is primarily based on the worship of transcended ancient Sith philosopher Ashar, who became the embodiment of Force itself, and a group of Lesser Deities collectively known as Tar Shur-Te Devyn, or The Hallowed Nine (often simplified as Devyn). The historical origin of the religion is largely unknown, but it is widely believed that when the Ashar transcended, his only nine followers who followed the philosopher, later propagated the teachings to nearby ancient Sith clans and with their help built a a temple inside the cave where Ashar archived enlightenment. Many generations later Ashar manifested himself before his nine followers who were now old and dying, and helped them to ascend as their deeds were done in the mortal realm.

Those who had arrived before the Temple of Aedur engraved the Ashar teachings and commandments in twelve large sandstone obelisks that they labelled The Edicts, that would help give wisdom to the rest of people of Korriban. These engraved text were later recorded into a holy book dubbed the Wvazst First Edict, a brief description of Ashar, the Devyn, and the first Sith Kings who followed the teachings. During the Sith Golden Age, the Wvazst was expanded upon with less literal interpretation, while still retaining the mythos, thus it became the Wvazst Second Edict. The Wvazst Third Edict was written in year 10 by a Zabrak wanderer, who discovered the shrine dedicated to Ashar on planet Tatooine. A artifact was found within the shrine, a guide-stone that presumably was made by Ashar himself, to guide the followers to a new world where they could archive enlightenment.



Aedra teaches that conflict with one self is the only true test of one's ability, as the biggest enemy to preservation will be no other as self substantial nature, that is in its raw form an unguided struggle. Through this conflict, one could find the true self and shatter all doubt that lingers, only this way one would grow and evolve without the corruption and taint that would in the end lead to self destruction and deprivation. Once one has found himself, the will be need through conflict to elevate self, in order to grow and change so one could be reborn as something more enlightened and powerful.


  • By my faith, may the light of the Aedra spread to the farthest star.
  • By my duty, the galaxy will belong to the righteous.
  • By my actions, the fires of the Great Temple will never die.
  • By my sacrifice, I shall live eternally.
  • By these words, I embrace my destiny.

The One Who Weaves All, The Lord of Sunlight, and the Lord of Heart & Fire, Ashar spawned a collection of lesser deities called the Devyn (The Nine), delegating most of the affairs of guiding the Sith to them. The Devyn were formed when Ashar made himself manifest in the realm of the living, breaking the veil that separated the realm of Void and the living universe. Nine priests of the Kissai caste, became to inherit the Devyn, who represented facets of Ashar himself, though they are not explicitly stated to be of his own design.
