1st level characters (I'm assuming you're using Saga) will probably start with the Jedi class at first and will have already fallen to the Dark Side (maxing out their Dark Side Score). There are Sith Prestige Classes that you can pick up later on (Sith Apprentice becomes available at level 8, and Sith Lord at level 13), but in the meantime, they will probably just make do with the Dark Side talent tree (in the "Force" chapter) and some of the Dark Side Force powers. They don't even have to go that route as you can be a Dark Jedi just fine by using and abusing the regular powers and talents. At the early levels, it's just all about choosing what kinds of skills you want your Sith-ling to have.
