Known apprentices

Darth Millennial[3]

Darth Cognus was an Iktotchi female who was a Dark Lord of the Sith and a member of Darth Bane's Sith Order.


At some point in Cognus' life, she took on an apprentice of her own, the three-eyed mutant[3] human[4] Darth Millennial. Cognus, however, was angered by the beliefs of her apprentice, which ran contradictory to Darth Bane's teachings, and drove him away. Millennial, who considered the Rule of Two far too restrictive, fled to the world of Dromund Kaas, where he established the Dark Force religion, while Cognus stayed on the path set forth by Bane and took on a new apprentice to continue her line.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Abel G. Peña, the creator of Darth Cognus, stated he personally considered her to be a female.[5] Cognus's gender was later canonized in the book Jedi vs. Sith: Essential Guide to the Force.[2] However, The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia mistakenly identified Cognus as male.[1]

Darth Cognus is set to appear in the third book in the Darth Bane trilogy, which has led to some fan speculation that she is Darth Zannah's apprentice.[6]
