7,000 – 6,900 BBY
*So, this short little nugget is found in Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force, which we’ve talked about a bit already. Part One of the book is called History and Holocrons and it spends a little time talking about various holocrons and then works through the timeline of the major battles between the Jedi and the Sith.
*So, this one is about one double-columned page in length. The author of this brief note on the Hundred-Year Darkness is Vodo-Siosk Baas.
*Anyway, as you might note, this is about 8,000 years on from our last work, Xim at Vontor. At approximately this point, we get the Second Great Jedi Schism. A group of Dark Jedi break away from the Jedi Order and spend their time using the Dark Side to create huge monsters that they call Leviathans.
*The Jedi Order goes to war against these Dark Jedi and the war lasts for more than a century. Ultimately, the Dark Jedi and their Leviathans make a final stand on Corbos. The Jedi are triumphant.
*The surviving Dark Jedi . . . ah, this is significant! The surviving Dark Jedi are exiled from the Republic. Leaving the Republic, these Dark Jedi run across an uncharted world far in the wilds of space . . . a world called Korriban!
*Obviously, we all remember Tales of the Jedi and all that. The Dark Jedi conquer the indigenous people of Korriban, a red-skinned, devilish race called the Sith. They spend the next two thousand years building an Empire. But then . . . after two thousand years, the piper comes calling and the exiled Dark Jedi return to the Republic. As we know.
*Then there’s an addendum by Tionne where she mentions that a Dark Jedi named Ajunta Pall was the founder of the Sith Empire on Korriban. She also mentions that some surviving Leviathans have been found on Corbos. I guess that was probably in that comic book called Leviathan, which I haven’t read.
*Hmm, okay . . . well, not much to say about this one.
** out of **** stars.
