Dark Jedi, also known as Fallen Jedi, was a term that was applied to Force-sensitive people who chose to deny the Light Side of the Force and would learn the ways of the Dark Side of the Force. Dark Jedi were simply dark-side users that had no alliance with certain dark side organizations, and did not follow the teachings of the Sith or Nightsisters.

Originally, the term "Dark Jedi" also referred to a Jedi who had fallen to the dark side, it could also refer to uninitiated Force-sensitives who received no training but began their careers under another Dark Jedi. In some cases, Dark Jedi also included "artificial" Force-sensitives who served the dark side, such as the Reborn and the Shadowtroopers. The first Dark Jedi was believed to be Xendor, who was the first member of the Jedi Order to fall. Other forerunners included Ajunta Pall and others who, after the Hundred-Year Darkness, were exiled from Galactic Republic space and became the ancient progenitors of the Sith Lords. Ultimately, the title became something of a blanket term for darksiders who could not be classified as belonging to any specific dark side organization.

Dark Jedi also became a term of note during the First and Second Sith War, where fallen Jedi served under the banners of Exar Kun and the duo of Darth Revan and Darth Malak respectively. Thousands of years later, Sith Lords such as Darth Sidious would resurrect the term, with agents serving under him bearing the title. Those whom the Miraluka Jerec controlled came to be known as the Seven Dark Jedi.


While Jedi were capable of falling to the dark side, it was told that many Dark Jedi, including those who became Sith, were brought back to the light side.
