“It's not magic; it's the ability to force concepts to exist, once you know them. It's an issue of intelligence, knowledge, practice and, in the case of Emperor Exodus, inborn ability.” - Seer Vhar, his interpretation on witnessing The Voice.


Valzino Zudifas (God Killer), also plainly named “Force Voice” or monikered as the Voice, is a complex form of Sith Magic which manipulates the powerful tongue of an archaic, ancient and forgotten Sith Lexicon. Valzino Zudifas is an intricate system of energy manipulation, a devolved form of force power from the alter tree, blended profusely with Sith Magic. It requires extreme skill and knowledge, requiring a user to create a pantomiming link between linguistic vibrations, their raw force power output, and their invocation of Sith incantation. The same rule applies to objects transcribed with the language, creating a binding effect. By way of the force-saturated language, the practitioner is able to speak commands in and of the force, equivalent to a phonetic casting of spells, brimming with immense power.  Of the subjects studied within the temples of the Sith, this branch of invocation is one of the most capable of being described as a black art and requires complete erudition in the essence of a person, place or thing. It is how this dialect of power is accomplished, an academic discipline where one perceives the true essence of a person, place or thing, and through that understanding gains absolute control over the subject by means of the Force and the powerful language. This power can be used by the practitioner in a variety of ways. 

For example, natural forces like an unprotected and naked flame can be called upon to sheath the blade of the one who utters the language (physical augmentation), the speaker can convincingly burn the world around another or crumble it into dust (illusion), and the living as well as the dead can be commanded by the speakers’ will.

The Holocron of the Spider King would depict a matter’s true essence as being comprised of everything that has gone into its shaping since its creation, citing the numerous forces and materials that have shaped the matter over time. The amount of knowledge and information necessary to perceive and understand such things is overwhelming to the cognizant mind, and for this reason a matter can only be perceived by the submerged mind which is then spoken and framed in ancient speech to command through the force. Such an inconceivable wealth of knowledge cannot easily be processed by the mundane creatures of the universe, but an Anzati and their harvest of soup, coupled by their vast life expectancy allows this master-ship of force abilities and Sith Magic. The all-powerful tongue must be careful when they speak, for their voice can be the cause of great destruction.


“Your bones tremble when he speaks, not for fear of what he may or may not say, but because the sound of his words actually have a strange weight to them, the breath of them crawl beneath our skin, and threaten to break us into pieces.” - Imperial Officer of the Armada

         History

Sith, or the Sith language, was the native language of the people of Ziost and Korriban. It was adopted as the mystical language of the Sith Order after the Dark Jedi Exiles enslaved the Sith species. Sith was an agglutinative language, in which words or even phrases were made up of linears sequences of distinct meaningful units. Despite the preeminence of the Galactic Basic Standard, the Sith language remained in use up until the post-Imperial period. To the Lost Tribe of Sith, an order founded on the remote planet Kesh, the Sith language was known as the Old Tongue. 

Originally, this language was only spoken by the Sith, a species of red–skinned Humanoids from the Stygian Caldera. It was later expanded upon and evolved when the second generation of Dark Jedi split from the Jedi Order in 7000 BBY, just after the Battle of Corbos, and enslaved the natives of Korriban. The Sith language became a symbol of the newly created Sith Order, a powerful sect of dark side adepts. This was made easier through the creation of devices known as translation talismans. Such artifacts, initially designed and created by the Jedi Exiles who sought to learn of the Sith's secrets, allowed their wearer to read the Sith language as if it were their own mother tongue.  The Code of the Sith, originally penned in Basic by the Exile Sorzus Syn and inspired by the lifestyle of the Sith Purebloods, was also translated in Sith language as Qotsisajak.

Around 5000 BBY, the Sith Dreadnaught Omen was forced to crash land on the remote planet Kesh. The marooned Sith were never able to to return to space, so they settled amongst the native Keshiri and founded the Lost Tribe of Sith. This allowed the Sith language to expand far from its cradle. In this marginal Sith colony, the language became known as "the Old Tongue".

The Sith language was originally written in complex hieroglyphics. Over the centuries, Sith scribes wished to develop less complicated scripts. This resulted in the creation of two different scripts. The first one, known as "Common Sith" was used for mundane, everyday use, while the other, "High Sith" was for ecclesiastical use. A third writing system known as the Kittât was also used for incantation scrolls. The latter consisted of thirty-seven runes, and was suitable for both calligraphy and epigraphy. The Massassi warriors who followed the Sith Lord Naga Sadow in exile on the fourth moon of Yavin Prime also developed their own hieroglyphic system, a simplified version of High Sith. They carved many inscriptions using this new writing system on temple walls and obelisks.

Historically, tempered variations of the Sith Language evolved on their own accord, some harnessing a power beyond the merit of simply being words. The language was preserved in holocrons, temples, tomes and written all over ancient obelisks. However, outside of the dark side circles, very few scholars knew how to decipher this language, and even fewer could pronounce its complex word structures. It would not be long before the mysticism of a particular language of High Sith caught the interest of the Anzati King Exodus, habitually becoming familiar with the tongue of a most ancient Sith in secrecy, canvassing leather-bound volumes covered with blood-red ink just as Darth Bane once did.
