On one of the pages (first few, non-story pages.), this story was said to be set before The Phantom Menance, and Obi-Wan is only thirteen.

These books seem to already have characters dealing with Dark Jedi. Dark Jedi, I believe, can be used interchangeably with Sith. Right? Desann should be a Sith since he can use Grip and Lightning, but that might simply be Dark Side Forces.

As mentioned, this book was set before The Phantom Menance. In TPM, the Masters of the Jedi Council seem surprised when Qui-Gon mentioned a Sith. One of the Masters said "Impossible. The Sith have not been around for a millenium!" The Jedi Apprentice books definitely were not set thousands of years before TPM, but already had Dark Jedis/Siths. Why, then, were they so surprised and filled with disbelief when Qui-Gon told them about Siths? Oh, in the book, Qui-Gon used to have a person called Xanatos as his Padawan, but he turned to the Dark Side. Even he himself had an ex-student on the Dark Side, and he, too, seem to have encountered Siths for the first time.

So, I say, EU media are not really reliable, official or not.

yeah, I know what you mean... that's what I've been wondering about for a long time, too. answere: Dark Jedis are NOT the same thing as Siths. Dark Jedi are only ppl, who can use the force, but use it to do evil things. Sith is a old race. Once, there had been many siths at one time, but since an internal conflict, the number has been reduced to two. that's why the jedi thought that

Impossible. The Sith have not been around for a millenium!

... but they didn't say nething about Dark Jedis, cuz that's not the same thing...

Sith basicly ARE the dark side, they live in it's energy almost. While dark jedi are mearly those who let their hate blindly control them and use the force for evil.

Ok. Maybe you're right.

But they've faced evil jedis before, so, why are they still so sure that Dark Side jedis don't exist? And why is Qui-Gon so sure that Maul was a Sith and not a Dark Jedi?

I'm still thinking that Siths are Dark Jedis, since they can so basically the same thing, and use Red lightsabres. Only Siths have Red Lightsabres (colored Red because of the way the sabres have been made, I guess.)

Sith have a lot of control over their evil energy, while dark jedis are controled by it. We can only asume that Qui-Gon was able to tell. And when did you last see Desann fight like Darth Maul? ;)

Ok, I've read in an FAQ, and it said Dark jedis are not Siths.

What I'm saying was that the Jedi Council seem to act in a way when Darth Maul was mentioned, as if they refuse to believe a jedi can go bad now, without anything influencing them. Sith or Dark Jedi, it doesn't matter. And, even thought one of the Masters said Siths died out, it also seem to mean that there is no such thing as Bad Jedis. And, why did Qui-Gon point out that he was a Sith so soon? Surely he knew as well that Siths are gone. Given from his 'past experiences', he might have seggested 'Dark Jedi' instead.

I don't think I've explained it very well here... I need to watch the movie again.

I don't quite get what you're trying to say here. Do you mean to say Desann is a Dark Jedi, but Maul is a Sith?

Actually, I believe Desann is a Sith. You see, Desann was called 'Lord' Desann by Fyyar, and 'Master' Desann by Tavion. I can't think of anywhere else where he could've gotten the title 'Lord'. Tavion might be his Apprentice.

I don't know...

Why is Desann, Jerec, Jan, etc not featured in the StarWars.com databank, whereas Kyle is? BTW, even the official site mentioned that Kyle has a green lightsabre. I'm sure the programmers forgotten all about it.
