Name the Next Sith Lord

LucasFilm and Del Rey publishing are hosting a contest to name the latest Star Wars Sith Lord.

What’s in a name? A great deal, indeed, for those who choose to take that final, fateful step and join the dark side. Each Dark Lord of the Sith must leave behind their old identity — and old name — in order to assume a moniker befitting their fearsome new status. As it was for Darth Bane, Darth Sidious, Darth Maul, Darth Vader, and a long line of dark disciples before them…so it is now, for Jacen Solo. But what name shall he take to seal his allegiance to the dark side? How shall he be hailed by those who honor, respect, and fear him? Now, YOU have a chance to be part of Star Wars history. Because this time, this privilege of naming the newest Sith Lord…is YOURS.

One Grand Prize winner will have his or her Sith name featured as the official character name in Star Wars: Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice by Karen Traviss. The Grand Prize Winner will be recognized on the acknowledgement page of the aforementioned book.

I call dibbs on Darth Surly, Darth Testy, Darth Cantankerous, Darth Passive-Aggressive, Darth Unethical, Darth Highly-Strung, Darth Malnourished, Darth ReallyBadHeadache and Most Evil Darth Evah.
