    And now you've compared His Imperial Majesty to peanut butter. It's almost like you enjoy being hurtful. :(

    And Emperor Paul Atradies has better art style

    Vitiate is different... That's all. He just doesn't hold a torch to Sidious or Krayt.

    Personally, I'd like to see the Sith Emperor heavily altered.

    First, I'd change the Emperor's real Gender to Female. We've had plenty of male sith already.

    Secondly, I'd revise the birth. Darth Dramath attempts a ritual to claim a Sith's Sorcerers Spirit . But, it appears to fail. Dramath sleeps with a woman and the spirit goes from Dramath to the baby due to not wishing to enter a battle of wills with Dramath. Mother dies in child birth and the spirit dominates the strongly force sensitive child and takes over the planet. After the defeat in the second battle of korriban the Sith Spirit plans a ritual with the other Sith to launch a series of force storms at the Republic from Medriaas. During the middle of the ritual the child breaks the spirit's control and the ritual fails causing massive destruction killing virtually all life on the planet and pouring all of the rituals participants spirit's into a teenager. A century later, a Sith Sorcerer comes to visit the site and finds a decrepit old woman that spent the last hundred years using the dark side to stay alive with thousands of voices in her head and the raw power of all the voices combined. The Sorcerer attempts to abuse her as she has spent the last century fighting for her mind her first defense is attacking his and she dominates his mind and forces him to serve her and return to populated space. On Dromand Kaas she is also mistreated and lashes out and eventually assumes the illusion of the Sith Emperor.

    Third, I'd revise her strength in the force Her actual personal strength ought to be slightly below revan/ skywalker ect. Her knowledge of techniques ought to be higher due to dealing with the thousands of Sith in her head and living 1000 years. Due to the thousands of Sith in her head she can draw on incredible amounts of raw power but, it also reduces her ability to shield her mind from them. As a result the actual displayed power will fluctuate based on need.

    Fourth, I'd revise her motivation. She wants to live, to be free, and to be in control. The problems are the source of most of her power is also what reduces her freedom and she's old and probably a bit mad.

    This leaves us with a ridiculously powerful character but with actual flaws and limitations. Rather than the warped mess that is the current Emperor.

    To translate: Esg is unamused and has raised his eyebrow to the suggestion that Krayt was better than Vitiate.

    Yes, I understood Esg.

    No, don't tag me every time he does something anime-related.

    Eh, I'll stick with Nihilus. He was always more interesting to me. The worst thing you can do to a mystery is explain it. Unless you have a hell of a reveal to pull off, all that suspense is just going to lead to disappointment when everything unravels.

    In short: Eldritch abomination Sith Lord > Talkative Sith Lord who happens to have copied former's power set.

    I have a friend who thought that Vitiate should have turned out to be some Big Brother/Oz figure who didn't actually exist and was a myth propagated by the Ruling Council.

    I would have somewhat liked that idea, but I find it hard to imagine the Council being able to work together without the threat of someone more powerful than them to hold them in check.

    I don't think I've ever seen an anime, I know nothing about them, but I was about 80% sure it had the same meaning as this:

    I quite like the Keeper, as far as voice acting goes. I can imagine Armand speaking to Cross in the same sort of exasperated yet highly cultivated tone.
