The prequels to Star Wars actually said that Sith are always two, one master and one student. But what about Ren's inquisitors and knights? A new novel changes this rule a little.
It was a little strange that the sinister Sith apparently follow a rule where there is only one master and one student. But we see about Starwars: Rebel's Inquisitors. And aren't two Sith a little short to take on an entire order of Jedi?
But not a binding rule of the two
In a new novel about Star Wars, the "Sith Rule of Two" is abolished or softened. The youth book for Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Rise of Skywalker states: "The first is one, but the Jedi are many. The Sith were many, but often they appear under the" Rule of Two ". The seeds of Jedi have been sown throughout the galaxy on Ossus, Jedha, Xenxiar and others. The Sith have no seeds because what they bury does not grow. They are the devastators of the worlds and once had fertile habitats such as Korriban, Ziost, Ixigul, Asog and others destroyed. "
According to this book, the "rule of two" is not binding. Sith often only appear in pairs, but apparently not always. And the two, masters and disciples, are those who rule other dark side powers, such as the Inquisitors. According to the novel, the Jedi misinterpreted this and believed that there are always only two.
