Lumiya.

10. Lumiya

  • Species: Human
  • Height: 6’
  • Hair Color: Reddish-Grey
  • Eye Color: Green

Background

Lumiya (originally known as “Shira Elan Colla Brie”) was a Force Sensitive human that became “Dark Lady of the Sith” after several years as an agent for the Galactic Empire. Born during the height of Emperor Palpatine’s power on Coruscant, the young Brie was wholly dedicated to the doctrines of the Galactic Empire, immersing herself wholeheartedly into its policies before finally joining the Intelligence Academy of Carida.

After garnering the respect and admiration of Darth Vader (due to her ruthlessness and ability to take orders without question), she was later promoted to the rank of major and was tasked with carrying out highly-classified operations against the Rebel Alliance. After nearly being killed in an operation against Luke Skywalker, however, Vader took it upon himself to rehabilitate Brie with cybernetic implants and to personally train her in the Dark Side of the Force. Under her new identity, Lumiya, the powerful assassin would go on to become an extremely powerful Force user, assuming the mantle of “Dark Lady of the Sith” in the years that followed the death of Vader and Palpatine aboard the Death Star.

Personality and Appearance

After giving into the Dark Side, Lumiya attempted to discard all of her previous attachments and connections associated with her former identity. As such, she was renowned for her incredibly cold and icy demeanor, as well as her merciless attitude toward those who attempted to argue against her commands. She was also extremely exploitative of others, and readily used the weak-minded to do her will through use of Force persuasion. Combined with her agility, intelligence, and aggressiveness, Lumiya was an incredibly deadly opponent to nearly any adversary on the battlefield.

In regard to Lumiya’s appearance, she was considered to be extremely attractive amongst those around her. Even with a number of cybernetic implants and modifications, her basic physical qualities remained largely untouched, including: high cheekbones, full lips, a relatively thin nose, and almond-shaped green eyes that gave her intense physical beauty. With a large bust and form-fitting attire that left little to the imagination, Lumiya was easily one of the sexiest Sith to have appeared in the Star Wars universe.

Darth Nyriss.

Darth Nyriss.

9. Darth Nyriss

  • Species: Sith
  • Height: Unknown
  • Hair Color: Black
  • Eye Color: Reddish-Yellow

Background

Darth Nyriss was a pureblood Sith who served as a member of the Dark Council on the planet, Dromund Kaas. First appearing in The Old Republic: Revan, Nyriss was part of a secretive alliance who planned to overthrow (and assassinate) Emperor Vitiate. After orchestrating a number of attacks on herself (to divert attention away from her plot), Nyriss used Lord Scourge and a number of her subordinates to put her alliance’s scheme into place. Before her plan could reach fruition, however, Nyriss was thwarted by the intervention of Revan, who succeeded in convincing Scourge to join his own cause.

Fighting valiantly against her newfound opponents, Nyriss met a relatively swift defeat at the hands of Revan, who redirected the Dark Side energy released by Nyriss against her, reducing the powerful Sith into a pile of ash.

Personality and Appearance

As with most of the Sith appearing on this list, Darth Nyriss was an incredibly evil being who saturated herself with the Dark Side of the Force in order to garner greater power and control. Best-described as intelligent, cunning, and extremely strategic in her overall thinking, Nyriss went to great lengths to achieve her goals, no matter the cost. She was also a master-manipulator, a talented liar, and ambitious sort. Combined with her impressive speed, lightsaber skills, and control over the Force, Darth Nyriss was an incredibly dangerous opponent to even the strongest of Jedi.

In regard to appearance, Nyriss was always considered by her subordinates and those around her to be one of the most beautiful women in the galaxy. This is particularly true during her youth, when the Dark Side had not fully corrupted her mind and body. Nyriss possessed a number of sexy traits, including: high-cheek bones, a slim physique, moderate sized bust, as well as seductive reddish-yellow eyes, and light red skin. Although these physical traits diminished significantly in her final years (due to the damaging effects of the Dark Side on her body), Nyriss continued to be one of the sexiest Sith characters in recent memory.

Darth Malora.

Darth Malora.

8. Darth Malora

  • Species: Human
  • Height: Unknown
  • Hair Color: Reddish-Black
  • Eye Color: Greenish-Blue

Background

Darth Malora was a Dark Lord of the Sith who made her first appearance in the hit game, Star Wars: The Old Republic. Growing up on the planet Korriban under the tutelage of Lord Renning, Malora quickly came to despise her master as she felt that his experiments and actions were incredibly useless to the advancement of Sith knowledge. After failing to kill her master in a sabotage attempt, Malora was tortured relentlessly by Renning in the days and weeks that followed. Despite this, Malora eventually outlived her master who perished during the Korriban Incursion. His removal allowed for her advancement to “Dark Lord of the Sith” in the years that followed, where she eventually joined the Empire’s Dark Councill and headed their Scientific Advancement division.

Very little is known about Darth Malora’s eventual fate during the Cold War between Sith and Republic forces. After taking command of an Imperial invasion of Ossus, however, it is known that she was unexpectedly replaced by Darth Malgus, who removed her from the Dark Council after she attempted to assassinate him. Her whereabouts in the months that followed remain a mystery.

Personality and Appearance

Malora’s personality is multifaceted. She is quite impatient (as seen with her disgust of Lord Renning), and incredibly impulsive. And while she possesses an extremely bright mind with the capacity to understand complex equations and quandaries, her lack of patience makes her wholly incapable of leading troops into battle, as she is unable to anticipate or respond to subtle changes in combat. Nevertheless, due to her incredible talent and resilience, she is a remarkably gifted warrior capable of holding her own in most situations.

In regard to appearance, Darth Malora is an incredibly sexy figure within the Star Wars universe. With reddish-black hair and bluish-green eyes (later yellow), her appearance was both unique and aesthetically pleasing. Combined with her sharp facial features, high-cheek bones, moderate bust, and semi-snug attire that leaves little to the imagination, Darth Malora is an exceptionally hot character in the Star Wars realm, and certainly worthy of mention on our current list.

Darth Gean.

Darth Gean.

7. Darth Gean

  • Species: Twi’lek
  • Height: Unknown
  • Hair Color: N/A
  • Eye Color: Yellow

Background

Darth Gean was a Twi’lek Sith that lived nearly 500 years before the rise of Palpatine and the Galactic Empire. Apprenticed under the tutelage of Darth Gravid, who was renowned for his desire to blend both Jedi and Sith teachings, Gean would later play a vital role in maintaining the “Rule of Two” instituted by Darth Bane in years prior. Seeing that Gravid’s attempts to harmonize the Force were detrimental to the Sith teachings (and its overall survival), Gean openly confronted her master, penetrating his heavily shielded fortress before facing him in a duel. Although gravely wounded in the battle that ensued (suffering dismemberment to a number of her appendages), the young Twi’lek managed to land a killing stroke against Gravid, ending his rule. With her assumption of power, Gean would later take on an apprentice of her own, allowing the Rule of Two to survive alongside the “Grand Plan” to topple the Jedi Order.

First appearing in the book, Darth Plagueis, Darth Gean’s story was recounted by Plagueis to his apprentice, Darth Sidious, as he hoped that the story would help to inspire the young Sith to be courageous and bold in his future actions. As of 2022, the story continues to hold the only reference to Darth Gean.

Personality and Appearance

In spite of our limited information, Darth Gean is a remarkable character. She is best-described as bold, extremely courageous, as well as devoted to her ideals (having overcome numerous obstacles to preserve the ancient Sith teachings that her master wished destroyed). She is also quite intelligent with a ferocious sense of anger and aggression that she uses to her advantage.

In regard to appearance, Darth Gean is exceptionally beautiful and sexy. With her reddish skin, black tattoos, and bright yellow eyes, her appearance is often equated with that of Darth Talon (a Twi’lek with similar characteristics). Combined with her moderate bust, skin-tight apparel, and curvaceous figure, Darth Gean is a beautiful (but extremely deadly) addition to our current list.

Darth Zash.

Darth Zash.

6. Darth Zash

  • Species: Human
  • Height: Unknown
  • Hair Color: Blonde
  • Eye Color: Brownish-Yellow

Background

Darth Zash (sometimes referred to simply as “Zash”) was a Sith sorcerer who lived during the Great Galactic War and ensuing Cold War between the Sith Empire and Republic. Trained in the tradition of Sith Inquisitors, Zash quickly advanced through the ranks due to her extensive study (and connection) to the Dark Side of the Force. After attaining the rank of Sith Lord, her tremendous knowledge of Sith magic and rituals eventually landed her a supervisory role in the Sith Academy, where she instructed acolytes on the planet of Korriban. Although incredibly beautiful in her youth, Zash’s constant usage of the Dark Side eventually resulted in the decay of her body, leading her to look elsewhere for a new (and younger) host body to maintain her spirit.

Personality and Appearance

Darth Zash was an incredibly multifaceted individual with a number of personality traits and quirks. Renowned for her genius intellect, Zash always showcased a thirst for knowledge and the advancement of herself. She was also quite secretive and cunning with her actions, and never felt any qualms about betraying those around her. Despite her origins as a Sith, however, Zash was one of the few Dark Side users known for her kind demeanor towards those she liked, as well as her extreme patience and willingness to help students that demonstrated promise.

In regard to appearance, it is important to note that Darth Zash made our current list due to her looks as a young woman (as her latter figure is disfigured beyond recognition due to her intense devotion to the Dark Side and its many secrets). During her youth, Zash possessed beautiful brownish-yellow eyes that were accentuated by shoulder-length blonde hair, a thin nose, full lips, and sharp facial features. Combined with her medium-sized bust and curvaceous figure, Darth Zash was an incredibly sexy Sith Lord, and one of the most beautiful women to have appeared in the Star Wars universe.

Alema Rar.

Alema Rar.

5. Alema Rar

  • Species: Twi’lek
  • Height: 5’3”
  • Hair Color: N/A
  • Eye Color: Green

Background

The beautiful Alema Rar was a Rutian Twi’lek who joined the New Jedi Order at a young age. Born into extreme poverty (as well as slavery), Rar was later freed by a Jedi Knight known as Daeshara’cor, who took the young Twi’lek to Yavin 4 once her Force-sensitive nature had became apparent. Undergoing intense training by Luke Skywalker in the art of lightsaber combat and Force control, Rar would eventually become a key player in the New Republic’s war effort, as she participated in countless battles and conflicts with a great deal of success.

Unfortunately for Rar, her time as a Jedi Knight was short-lived as she was later seduced to the Dark Side by Lumiya (the resurgent Dark Lady of the Sith) who used Rar’s uncontrolled anger and eventual insanity as an opportunity to get inside the Twi’lek’s young mind. When news of her betrayal was discovered, a Jedi strike team was quickly organized to hunt Alema Rar down. After being tracked to Lumiya’s hideout, a battle ensued between Rar and the strike team, resulting in her death at the hands of Jagged Fel.

Personality and Appearance

As with many of the Sith appearing on this list, Alema Rar was an extremely complex character with a personality that reflected her tumultuous life. Although she was considered by her fellow Jedi to be incredibly bold and courageous, she was also prone to extreme bouts of anger, aggression, and emotional outbursts (HobbyLark.com). Feelings such as this eventually led to narcissistic thoughts and streaks of selfishness. This, in turn, made Rar an easy target for her enemies, who used (and preyed upon) these weaknesses in order to seduce her to the Dark Side.

In spite of her character flaws (which ultimately led to her early demise), Alema Rar was an incredibly attractive Twi’lek with a great deal of sex appeal. Characterized as both athletically fit and curvaceous in her appearance, Rar always maintained a high-degree of physical fitness. With her bluish skin and green eyes that changed colors according to her emotional state, Rar was nearly unparalleled in her physical beauty. Combined with her large bust, skintight attire, and sensual/seductive side, Alema Rar was an easy choice for this list as she was an incredibly sexy Sith.

Vestara Khai.

Vestara Khai.

4. Vestara Khai

  • Species: Human
  • Height: Unknown
  • Hair Color: Light Brown
  • Eye Color: Dark Brown

Background

Vestara Khai was a Force sensitive human who was born to Gavar Khai and Lahka approximately 27 years after the Battle of Yavin. Born on the planet of Kesh, Vestara quickly assumed a leadership role in her planet’s Sith tribe by the age of 10 before being apprenticed to Lady Olaris Rhea. After years of grueling training and instruction in the Dark Side of the Force by her master, Vestara was eventually handpicked for a strike team tasked with killing Luke Skywalker. Khai and her team underestimated the Jedi, however, as both he and his son defeated the strike team with only Vestara surviving. Khai would later go into hiding, but would continue to play a vital role in galactic events that unfolded in subsequent years (including a romance with Luke’s son, Ben Skywalker).

Personality and Appearance

Vestara Khai can be best-described as an emotionally-driven individual who used her emotions as weapons against her adversaries. Extremely driven and ambitious in her desires, Vestara Khai was also incredibly intelligent and strategic in her thinking, employing whatever she could to advance in life. Despite these flaws, however, she was also unique for a Sith as she seemed to care deeply about others and even managed to feel bouts of compassion towards those who were close with her. This was particularly true with regard to her love interest, Ben Skywalker, whom she cared for deeply.

In regard to her overall appearance, Vestara Khai was a beautiful Sith character renowned for her light brown hair, almond-shaped brown eyes, and black tattoos that adorned parts of her face. Although members of her tribe considered the miniscule scar above her lip as a deformity and mark of shame, others (including Ben Skywalker) found this “flaw” to be merely a beauty mark, as they were completely entranced by her overall attractiveness. Combined with her slim/athletic figure, large bust, full set of lips, and form-fitting attire, it is not difficult to see why Vestara Khai is considered by fans to be one of the sexiest figures in the Star Wars universe.

Tahiri Veila.

Tahiri Veila.

3. Tahiri Veila

  • Species: Human
  • Height: Unknown
  • Hair Color: Blonde
  • Eye Color: Green

Background

Tahiri Veila was a Force sensitive human who was born on Tatooine approximately 13 years after the Battle of Yavin. Born to moisture farmers (Tryst and Cassa Veila), Tahiri was eventually orphaned at a young age and was “adopted” by a local Tusken Raider tribe who taught the girl both their customs and mannerisms. A few years later, Tahiri was eventually discovered by Jedi Master Tionne Solusar, who brought her to Yavin 4 for training. There she met Anakin Solo for the first time, developing close feelings for him in the years that followed.

After Anakin’s unexpected death during the Yuuzhan Vong War, the tragedy caused great emotional pain for Veila, leading her to eventually leave the Jedi Order and to join Darth Caedus (Anakin Solo’s older brother who had turned to the Dark Side). Caedus was able to convince Veila that she could reconnect with Solo through a process known as “Flow-Walking.” Such promises never came to fruition, however, as Caedus was killed a year later, leaving Veila to lead the life of an outcast in the years that followed. Although she would eventually return to the ranks of the Jedi Order, Veila’s life continued to be one of personal tragedy, failure, and disappointment for the remainder of her life.

Personality and Appearance

From an early age, Tahiri Veila was generally quite optimistic and free-spirited with a high-degree of intelligence. She possessed a near photographic memory and was able to recall specific details due to her tremendous awareness of the world around her. Her happy-go-lucky youth, however, was quickly demolished by personal tragedies into her adulthood, as the death of Anakin Solo brought the young Jedi grief and emotional despair. By the end of her life, Veila had sunk into deep depression, resulting in a withdrawn and sullen (yet pragmatic) outlook on life.

Despite her character flaws, Tahiri Veila was an exceptionally beautiful woman renowned for her shoulder-length blonde hair and lovely green eyes. Veila also possessed a number of facial features that added to her overall beauty, including a thin nose, small ears, and a full set of lips. Combined with her slim/athletic body, moderate bust, and hourglass shape, Tahiri Veila was an extremely attractive Sith, and a clear favorite amongst many Star Wars fans.

Darth Zannah.

Darth Zannah.

2. Darth Zannah

  • Species: Human
  • Height: Unknown
  • Hair Color: Blonde
  • Eye Color: Bluish-Yellow

Background

Darth Zannah (sometimes referred to as “Rain”) was a Force-sensitive human born on the planet Somov Rit approximately 1,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. Recruited at a young age to fight alongside the Jedi’s “Army of the Light” (in the Ruusan campaign of the New Sith Wars), her participation in the conflict was short-lived as she was quickly separated from the main group following a Sith attack. In a tragic sequence of events that followed, Rain was rescued by a native known as Laa, who was later killed by a pair of Jedi scouts who thought Laa was an enemy. Struck by extreme anger and grief over her friend and rescuer’s death, Rain’s tremendous rage led her to murder the Jedi scouts. The fight attracted the attention of Darth Bane who could feel her sudden pull to the Dark Side. Recognizing her potential, Bane seduced Rain to the Dark Side, taking her as his new apprentice and giving her the name, Darth Zannah.

Zannah would continue to serve by Darth Bane’s side for many years, carrying out numerous secret missions for her master. After growing in both power and strength, however, Zannah decided to eventually challenge Bane for his position. Although initially overwhelmed by his tremendous power, Zannah ultimately succeeded in killing Bane; thus, securing the position of master for herself. She later took on Darth Cognus as her new apprentice and would continue Bane’s legacy (and the “Rule of Two”) for the remainder of her life.

Personality and Appearance

Darth Zannah was an incredibly complex character with a number of personality traits that were seemingly in conflict with one another. Although Zannah was considered extremely shy and timid as a child, such feelings were quickly destroyed by her ultimate fall to the Dark Side, where she became merciless, extremely violent, and full of unbridled rage. Combined with her tremendous intellect and thirst for knowledge, such characteristics made Zannah an incredibly dangerous Sith who was prepared to do whatever was necessary to accomplish her goals and aspirations.

In regard to her appearance, Darth Zannah was an extremely attractive character with a high-degree of sex appeal. Fully aware of her tremendous beauty, Zannah often went to great lengths in order to hide her striking appearance from others (as she needed to be inconspicuous in order to hide her Sith identity from the Jedi). In spite of this, her beauty continued to show through her disguises, with her long and curly blonde hair and yellowish-blue eyes being among the most prominent features visible to others. Combined with her curvaceous figure, large bust, extremely athletic build, and long legs, Darth Zannah is easily one of the sexiest Sith to have ever appeared in Star Wars.

Darth Talon.

Darth Talon.

1. Darth Talon

  • Species: Twi’lek
  • Height: Unknown
  • Hair Color: N/A
  • Eye Color: Yellow

Background

The gorgeous Darth Talon was a Twi’lek that first appeared in the Legacy comic book series several years ago. Working as a Sith under the influence of Darth Krayt, Talon was both a beautiful and extremely deadly character renowned for her loyalty and fanatical devotion to the Dark Side of the Force. Characterized in the comics as a “third-generation Sith,” Darth Talon was raised at the Sith Academy on Korriban where she learned her basic combat skills and Force use under the tutelage of Darth Ruyn. After it became clear that Talon possessed powerful Force abilities and skills, however, she was quickly promoted through the ranks of the Academy and earned both the respect and admiration of the One Sith founder, Darth Krayt. Seeking to test her loyalty to the Sith, Krayt eventually tasked Talon with killing her former master, which she performed swiftly and flawlessly without question. As a reward, Talon was promoted to the high rank of “Hand,” making her one of Krayt’s most trusted assassins (starwars.fandom.com).

Personality and Appearance

In regard to Darth Talon’s personality, she is best-described as an individual that is both cold and ruthless in her overall demeanor. She is also quite loyal, showcasing a fanatical and unwavering devotion to the Sith Emperor. One of her key flaws, however, lies in her lack of leadership skills and intelligence. This is due, in part, to her early upbringing in the Sith Academy which relegated independent thinking as being “beneath” unwavering loyalty. Talon makes up for this deficiency though with an aggressive command over her lightsaber and tremendous control over the Force. Taken together, she is capable of unleashing a number of attacks on opponents, making her an incredibly deadly adversary in the combat realm.

In regard to her appearance, no other Star Wars character (Sith, Jedi, or everything in between) is capable of matching the extreme sex appeal and attractiveness of Darth Talon. Renowned for her lovely dark red body that is adorned with black tattoos, her tremendous bust, hourglass figure, and skimpy attire (that leaves little to the viewer’s imagination), few characters have been sexualized as much as Talon. Combined with her seductive nature, Darth Talon is clearly (and easily) the sexiest Sith character that currently exists in the Star Wars realm; a feat that will likely remain for the foreseeable future.
