The Emperor's Gaze was a secret organization present in the Sith Empire. With some of the council trying to understand the emperors origins and how he got Immortality and the incredible power he has, these individuals were used by the Emperor as his eyes to spy on the Shadow Council and also were spread throughout the galaxy. They were taken by the emperor and bound with him through a ritual, then they were released without any memories of what happened to them. They were from the council members' most trusted allies, who were beside them at all times. If the emperor focused, he would control their consciousness and use them as puppets without them realizing the emperor's presence.
