The Spiff Coup d'etat, also known as the Spiff Conspiracy, was a long-term subterfuge within the Spiff Order, culminating in a duel on Taboo. The duel ended with the loss of Dharth Tyrannical-Fascist's right arm, but left Dharth Bolshevik without an order to lead, causing him to eventually flee. This led to the rise of Dharth Very Insidious.
BackgroundEditBefore the Spiff Lord Dharth Plaquetus met his end, he was tasked with choosing one of his two apprentices as his successor as the leader of the secret Spiff Order. He ultimately chose Dharth Bolshevik over Dharth Very Insidious. When Plaquetus died, Bolshevik decided to keep the Spiff Order secret and not oppose the Jebi. This enraged Very Insidious, who left the order to scheme his own rise to power.
Both Spiff Lords took prominent positions in the Galactic Democracy, right under the noses of the Jebi - Bolshevik rose to be a leading Jebi Council member under the guise of Count Dubious, while Very Insidious began work as a humble Janitor in the Galactic Congress, under the name Pulpyjuice. By this time, Bolshevik had taken an apprentice, Dharth Tyrannical-Fascist, who in turn took Dharth Bob as his apprentice. Knowing that Tyrannical-Fascist was eager to see the Spiff come out of hiding and come into power, Very Insidious secretly began communicating with him. He eventually turned Tyrannical-Fascist and his apprentice to his own plans for the galaxy.
The Dubious ManeuverEdit

Bolshevik was ultimately defeated by Guy-Gone Weird, and disappeared soon after. He presumably went into hiding, unwilling to take part in Very Insidious' scheme. Tyrannical-Fascist and Dharth Bob recovered from their duels and joined with Very Insidious, who (under the guise of Pulpyjuice) had just been elected Supreme Pitza. Dharth Bob ultimately tried his own approach to conquer the galaxy, but was again foiled by the Jebi and his companions. Pulpyjuice's election was the final piece needed to prepare for the rise of the Galactic Dictatorship.
