The Dark Council, sometimes referred to as the Sith Ruling Council, was a semi-political body that was made up of the Sith Masters and oversaw matters in both the New Sith Order, and during its existence, the Confederate-American Empire. The Dark Council was tasked with being the governing body in the absence of the Dark Lord of the New Sith or in his or her incapacitation. In such an event, they would elect a new Dark Lord of the Sith, who was worthy of leading the order, to fill the vacancy.
