The Spheres of Rule are the twelve domains of politics and power in the rising Sith Empire. Each of the twelve, are headed by a small ministry, which in turn is lead by a Warden (a member of the Dark Council,) and between them they encompass the entire Sith Empire. Through the Spheres, the Dark Council controls and oversees the day-to-day operations of the Empire, and every individual and organization within the Empire ultimately answers to at least one of the Councilors through the hierarchy of the Spheres.









twelves spheres condensed into four ministries, managed by a member of the dark council known as Wardens.

Ministry of War

The Machine of the Sith


Leader: The Warden of Battle, 

Affiliation: Imperial High Command, Imperial Army, Imperial Navy,


The Ministry of War was one of four pillars in the Kingdom of the Sith Empire. The Ministry of War was charged with operating almost all elements of the Imperial Military and was led by the Warden of Battle. Under the Ministry were moffs who ensured that military order was maintained. Though the Lord of War answered to all members of the Dark Council, the Ministry worked particularly close with the spheres of Diplomacy/Expansion, Military Offense, and Military Strategy. The Imperial Navy was one of the ministry's chief concerns. The Ministry is also responsible for the Imperial Army, the Empire's ground forces. Other areas of the Ministry's responsibilities were foreign expansion, soldier deployments, combat tactics, special forces, black ops missions and the general strategy of the war. The Ministry ensured all Spheres of Influence were appropriately garrisoned with military forces as one of their chief responsibilities. The Ministry's mercenary recruitment division appropriately employed talented freelance professionals for Imperial service. 


Diplomacy and Expansion, Military Offense, Military Strategy

Sith within the Domain of The Machine may be focused on interactions with hostile or potentially hostile presences in the galaxy. They are warriors, diplomats, strategists and more.




Ministry of Intelligence

The Scales of the Sith Empire


Leader: The Warden of Judgment (High Inquisitor), 


Affiliation: Sith-Imperial Intelligence, Sith-Imperial News Network, Outreach Bureau, Intelligence Asset Recovery, Red Knights of Truth


The Ministry of Intelligence was one of four main divisions of the rising Sith Empire. The Ministry of Intelligence governed the Sphere of Imperial Intelligence, the Defense of the Empire and the Laws and Justice of Imperial Society. Headed by Warden of Judgment (more commonly known as the High Inquisitor), the Ministry was responsible for providing information and sowing disinformation as necessary, the external and internal defense of the Galactic Kingdom and the execution of law and order within Imperial Society. The largest organ of the Ministry is the Sith-Imperial Intelligence. It serves the Sith Empire as the primary covert intelligence and counter intelligence service. Its day-to-day operations were headed by members within the directorate, generally referred to as the Keepers.  A second apparatus of the Ministry of Intelligence was the Outreach Bureau. The Bureau's purpose was to inform citizens of the daily news of the galaxy. More often than not, the Bureau reported facts as suited the Empire and produced copious amounts of propaganda praising the Empire and casting the Galactic Alliance or allies thereof as deceptively evil, which was endorsed by uncharacteristic attacks similar to those on Onderon.


Defense of the Empire  Sith Intelligence, Laws and Justice

Sith within the Domain of The Scales may be focused on interactions with neutral, friendly, or enemy presences in the galaxy. They are protectors, gatherers of information, judges and more.



Ministry of Logistics

The Hive of the Sith Empire


Leader: The Warden of Coin,


Affiliation: Imperial Citizenship Bureau, Imperial Treasury Department


The Ministry of Logistics was a division of the Sith Empire, one that held dominion over the Sphere of Production and Logistics, Technology, and Biotic Sciences. The ministry was controlled by the Warden of Coin who answered to the Dark Council though he or she would also at times report to other councilors evenly, such as the one who oversaw the Sphere of Defense of the Empire if it referred to a military issue. Though seen by some as the lowest of the Ministries, it was also the most vital. The ministry provided calculations to fend off enemy troops, logistical necessities of fleets and ground forces, and financial concerns of a war. between many industries that are nationalized, the Ministry also manages the factories that produce the weapons for the Empire's war machine. Along with this, are agricultural worlds that are used for the food supplies of the Sith-Imperial military. The Ministry also supervises the Empire's slave labor and makes adjustments where necessary to complete building projects. Added to this, the ministry runs the Empire's civilian transportation and trade network ensuring the transit of goods in the Empire, locally and between worlds.


Biotic Sciences, Technology, Production and Logistics

Sith within the Domain of The Hive may be focused on the sciences and technologies that build and strengthen the Empire. They are alchemists, artificers, economists, engineers, and more.




Ministry of the Arcane

The Spirit of the Sith Empire


Leader: The Warden of Souls,


Affiliation: Imperial Reclamation Service


The Ministry of the Arcane was the Spirit of the Sith Empire, one that held dominion over the Sphere of Ancient Knowledge, Mysteries of the Force, and most importantly, Sith Philosophy. The ministry was controlled by the Warden of Souls who answered to the Dark Council and explicitly, the Dark King of the Sith. Within the reach of this ministry, they harbored and hunted for lost artifacts and weaponry of ancient Sith, they vaulted a great many secrets that held value far beyond the comprehension of common folk, even experimenting with the darkest implications of the Force. Above all, they heralded the sacred tenets of Sith Philosophy, zealously imprinting the core beliefs of their system, to the worlds that fell beneath Sith-Imperial Rule.


Ancient Knowledge, Mysteries, Sith Philosophy

Sith within the domain of The Force may be focused on discovering and either sharing or safeguarding knowledge, both historical and arcane. They are archaeologists, occultists, enigmas, teachers and more.









a breakdown of each governing body, and what their rule consists of.



▲ ■ ▲ ■ ▲ ■ ▲ ■



Sphere of Ancient Knowledge

The Sphere of Ancient Knowledge was charged with the protection and expansion of Sith knowledge. First introduced in the times of the resurgent Sith Empire of old, this field oversaw the Imperial Reclamation Service and ensured that Sith artifacts and archaeological discoveries were handled correctly and benefited the Sith Order.


Pyramid of Biotic Science

The Sphere of Biotic Science was charged with the command of all aspects of the Empire that dealt with the organic body. The Imperial Medical Corps, cybernetic augmentation, disease control, Sith alchemy, and genetic manipulations and experiments all fell within the Sphere's control.


Pyramid of Defense of the Empire

The Sphere of Defense of the Empire was concerned with the direction of the Imperial Military in order to preserve the Empire and its people from external and internal threats. As a result, the Sphere shared joint control of the Ministry of War and the Imperial Military with the heads of the Spheres of Military Offense and Military Strategy, and it often coordinated its efforts with the Sphere of Imperial Intelligence. The measure of influence here would ultimately protect the Sith Empire from self-destructive policies and infighting like that which plagued the Sith Order in years past.


Pyramid of Expansion and Diplomacy

The Sphere of Expansion and Diplomacy oversaw the expansion of the Empire's borders and directed the Imperial Diplomatic Corps in its efforts to secure new allies and maintain their allegiances. While the Sphere controlled both diplomacy and expansion, the Sphere's leader determined which of the two the Empire favored during the Councilor's tenure. It was common that operators in the past preferred military expansion and conquests over diplomacy, but the justifications would need to appeal to the council, and furthermore the Dark Lord himself.


Pyramid of Imperial Intelligence

The Sphere of Imperial Intelligence oversaw the Ministry of Intelligence, with the Minister of Intelligence reporting directly to the head of the Sphere. All of Intelligence's many divisions, including Imperial Intelligence—the primary Intelligence gathering arm of the Ministry—and the propaganda-generating Outreach Bureau fell under the control of the Sphere's leader. Lord Exodus involved himself here particularly and directly in all things concerning, regardless of the acting Director.


Pyramid of Laws and Justice

The Sphere of Laws and Justice directed the law enforcement and justice branches of the Sith Empire, and under the Sphere's control the rigid order and efficiency of Imperial society would harden and remain intact, and Imperial justice could now be maintained across the Empire. The head of this Sphere would ensure that the Empire remained true to its values and traditions, while understanding that relying too much on the traditions of the past could compromise the future.


Pyramid of Military Offense

The Sphere of Military Offense directed the Imperial Military and the Ministry of War in all offensive military operations, commanding the military's firepower and resources in order to destroy the Empire's enemies and ensure their territorial and military supremacy.


Pyramid of Military Strategy

The Sphere of Military Strategy controlled the battle plans, strategies, and other military procedures in addition to the Imperial Conquest Consolidation Corps, and the Sphere worked directly with the Spheres of Defense and Military Offense to command the Ministry of War. Lord Exodus and the head of the Sphere orchestrated the invasion and complete takeover of Onderon during the threat of a reignited war with the Jedi Order, resulting in a near-perfect occupation that was only sullied by the full retreat of the enemy forces.


Pyramid of Mysteries

The Sphere of Mysteries, also known as the Keeper of Mysteries sphere, was the Sphere that was the most secretive of the twelve. The rest of the Empire knew almost nothing about the Sphere's inner workings or purpose, and they only understood that the mysteries which the Sphere protected were important to the Empire. The director of this sphere operated in close tandem with the Dark Lord of the Sith, and their union was likely struck decades prior to the formation of this powerful Sith Empire.


Pyramid of Production and Logistics

The Sphere of Production and Logistics was charged with overseeing the Ministry of Logistics, with the Minister of Logistics reporting directly to the Dark Councilor in charge of the Sphere. Through the Ministry, the Sphere oversaw the Empire's trade routes, resources, economy, military supply lines, transportation systems, nationalized industries, slave populations, and other assets and programs essential to the continued functions of the Empire.


Pyramid of Sith Philosophy

The Sphere of Sith Philosophy was tasked with the protection of the Code of the Sith, ensuring that the acolytes and apprentices of the Sith Order remained loyal to the tenets of their Order, spreading anti-Jedi teachings and propaganda, and also ensuring that the Empire remained free of those who believed in the powers or advantages of the light side of the Force.


Pyramid of Technology

The Sphere of Technology oversaw the creation of powerful new cybernetics, super-weapons, military technology and other revolutionary machines for the good of the Empire.
