The Sith, 3808 BBY

In 3961 BBY, a talented Jedi military tactician and strategist, Revan directed the Galactic Republic to victory over the Mandalorians.

In 3960 BBY, Revan, his friend Malak, his loyal Jedi followers, and a third of the Republic fleet ventured into the Unknown Regions to pursue Mandalorian stragglers and ceased all communications with the known galaxy. On Dromund Kaas, Revan and Malak came face to face with the long hidden Sith Empire and its Emperor. Revan and Malak fell completely to the Sith.

In 3959 BBY, Darth Revan, “The Revanchist”, declared himself the Dark Lord of the Sith and led an invasion of the Galactic Republic to found his own Sith Empire.

In 3957 BBY, Darth Malak turned on Darth Revan, who was captured by Jedi, his mind broken.

In 3956 BBY, Sith forces bombarded the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine and the ruins were plundered by Darth Malak. A healed Revan defeated Darth Malak and left the known galaxy on a solitary quest against the true Sith Empire.

In 3954 BBY, the First Jedi Purge began as Sith begin hunting Jedi.

In 3952 BBY, a desperate Jedi Conclave on Katarr ended as all life on the planet was devoured by Sith Lord Darth Nihilus. Nearly all of the remaining hundred Jedi died. The Jedi Order was officially disbanded and the remaining Jedi Knights went into hiding.

In 3951 BBY, the last 3 Jedi Masters were slain in the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine by Sith Lord Darth Traya. A mysterious Jedi known as ‘the Exile’ defeats Traya, Sion, and Nihilus. Their forces are scattered after the Battle of Telos. The Jedi Exile boards the Ebon Hawk and leaves known space to search for Revan.

Nearly a century and a half has passed. Small groups of Dark Side cultists and bandits descended from Sith forces make trouble for system security but are disregarded by the Galactic Republic as mere nuisances. However, rumors of a Sith Empire are whispered in the dark places of the galaxy. Some sentients say they’ve met agents from the Unknown Regions…
