No, Darth Ruin's name was not in the novel, it only said about some unnamed Jedi and later the EU set his name as Darth Ruin, also that's Maul's own thoughts.

Yes. The first sith lord appeared 2000 years before the movies. Thats all there is to know about the History of the SIth in the movies.

Again that's just Darth Sidious' own thoughts of their order, and the Sith before them got no direct relation with Bane's order. Even in the The Visual Dictionary of the RotS movie said about that stuff is Great Hyperspace War.

"The character of Darth Ruin was created by George Lucas as part of the backstory for the prequel trilogy. In Lucas's notes, Ruin is an unnamed Jedi Knight who fell to the dark side with fifty followers 2,000 years prior to the film saga, founding the Sith."

From LUCAS himself stating the first sith lord:

In this video he said the Sith were created by a unnamed knight, not saying he was Ruin or his time was 2000 years ago. That does not conflict with Ajunta Pall's background.

Nice, you can only call people fanboys now.

All we have is Sidious' own thoughts of his order in EP I, but that was only his own thoughts and it was like 1999, the only pre PT EU is TotJ.

And

Quote:
This time, however, he was able to communicate directly with George Lucas, who Veitch said "loved the idea," and who gave Veitch free rein to write and explore the Star Wars universe 4,000 years before A New Hope. Lucas's one condition was that Veitch had to get final approval from him on the comic's storyline.
GL permitted the writing of TotJ by himself.

George also permitted the return of Sidious and the cloning along with the entire Post-ROTJ EU. Which he later said NEVER happens. whats your point?

The return of Sidious was not permitted by him, it was his idea, just later he didn't like it, but he still permits all the EU and even wrote a few stuff for them.

Also he never said nothing happened before The New Sith War, so your argument of no Sith before Ruin(even that is a name given by EU) is not vaild.

Oh I forgot to mention, the door of the escape pod was sealed by Theron when Karrid tried to escape, so unless something special happens, she is dead.
