The Sith are a sect of force users who embrace the Dark Side of the force. They are malicious and evil and seek to destroy the Jedi at all costs. There are those who seek to become Sith but have not yet attained the appropriate power or malice, these force users are known as dark jedi.
Though there is a suggestion that Darth Creepius was the first of the Sith, this is incorrect, though Darth Creepius was an early Sith and gained a great deal of power and leadership among his peers he was not the first. A fallen jedi of unknown origin a century before the appearance of Darth Creepius began the Sith order.
Sith Philosophy is generaly broken down into one of two camps: The Rule of Two or the Sith Army. The Rule of Two suggests a Sith Lord have two apprentices who are forced into an adversarial relationship until one of them emerges as the stronger and kills the other. They are then either pitted against another apprentice or they kill their master and begin to take on apprentices of their own. The Sith Army on the other hard is a philosophy that suggests the creation of an army of Sith to sweep across the galaxy and destroy all those opposed to the Sith and their ways. The Sith Army is a philosophy primarily proported by Darth Creepius and those of his lineage.
