    Well- there it is guys - the next Sith Lord ala Reality TV.

    So, for those of you not familiar with what's going on - those fine folks down at LA decided what better way to make a bad EU story-arc worse, than let the fans decide the name of the new Dark Lord of the Sith.

    So, we have five choices (all of course preceded by DARTH: (This bit stolen from another site)

    ACHERON
    The Acheron is located in the Epirus region of northwest Greece. Acheron translates as the "river of woe" and it was believed to be a branch of the underworld river Styx over which in ancient Greek mythology Charon ferried the newly dead souls across into Hades.

    CAEDUS
    Latin word meaning, or referring to: to fall, kill

    JUDICAR
    Latin word meaning or referring to: investigation, judgement, decision
    http://www.archives.nd.edu/cgi-bin/lookit.pl?latin=judicar

    PAXIS
    Paxis, possibly an alteration of the name PAXI:
    Paxi (Greek: Ðáîïß, pronounced Paksi though more commonly called "Paxos" in English ) is the smallest of the Ionian Islands (the Heptanese). In fact in Greek it is a plural form and it refers to a complex of islands, the largest of which are Paxi and Antipaxi (a smaller nearby island famous for its wine, which is unfortunately almost impossible to purchase in shops or tavernas, and two of the finest sandy beaches in the Ionian Sea). In Greek mythology Poseidon created the island by striking Corfu with his trident, so that he and wife Amphitrite could have some peace and quiet.

    Also contains the world AXIS:
    Referring to the 'central point' in mathematics, and/or to the Axis alliances of WWII

    TARAL
    The best anyone can come up with "LA RAT" backwards - which seems qutie apt.

    Anyways, if you got an sw.com account you can vote...i suggest only do so if you know what you're voting about...i'll add more spoilers into this if anyone wants me to i.e. just exactly who the new Dark Lord is...

    Krayt's A'Sharad Hett.

    As for these Sith names? All awful.

    Well, that's certainly a theory. I'd prefer it if it was K'Kruhk's hat come to life :p

    And yes, I could think of better Sith names.

    I'd have called him Darth Sithius the Mean!

    As for Hett:

    The tatoos and jawline are very similar. Plus, "Krayt" with the first instance of us seeing A'Sharrad was when he was saving Ki-Adi from the dragon? Could be a red herring, though!
