    I believe both, to be honest.

    The Secrets of the Sith counts them as Sith apprentices I believe, including Savage Oppress...

    Okay so just started this one up and maybe It’s because I was riding high off reading the Ascendancy trilogy but I like this book less than I remember.

    Vos seems a bit OOC in his interactions with Kenobi.
    acting surprised he will have to flirt with Ventress. When Vos’s previous TCW appearance strikes me as someone who will flirt with anyone to get what he needs.

    anyway another funny error. It’s not really an error, but it’s weird. While in the 1313 bar Vos describes Boba Fett as no more than in his late teens. Maybe Vos sucks at telling someone’s age or maybe Golden forgot that Boba is supposed to be 13 in this novel. So the opposite of late teens.

    I honestly thought he was primarily teasing Obi-Wan in that encounter, but that's just my interpretation.

    You could definitely read it that way.

    Later in the novel however Vos explicitly states he is basically uncomfortable with flirting.

    I suppose it's an interesting line he walks, as a Jedi who spends a lot of his time undercover it makes sense, he'd be a bit more laid back, but he has to have lines he won't cross in the name of staying a Jedi. It's possible flirting is just one of them.

    Savage was always a Sith - Maul straight up says he was training him as an apprentice (as we later find out, this is in direct violation of the Rule of Two, and a certain someone is NOT happy about there being someone else running around telling people he's the "true lord of the Sith)."

    I still find the series unclear regarding Ventress. Unlike Maul, Tyranus seemed to be more careful about posing an open threat to Sidious (and for good reason). I never considered Ventress to be a true Sith, but had Dooku succeeded with his ambitions for overthrowing Sidious she obviously would have taken that step.
