A Long Time Ago, In A Galaxy Far Far Away....

The year is 3,950 BBY, six years after the defeat of Revan's former apprentice, Darth Malak, and the resurfacing of the feared Dark Lord, Darth Revan. By defeating his apprentice, Darth Revan has reclaimed the title of Dark Lord of the Sith. The Republic forces that were sent by the Republic to destroy the Star Forge, were defeated over Lehon. While Darth Revan reclaimed his empire from Darth Malak, Bastila Shan aided the Sith forces through use of Battle Meditation, turning the battle into a massacre. With the Republic weak and tattered, what remained of the Republic's navy retreated back to Republic controlled Space.

With the Republic forces in tatters, relationships between the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order begin to falter. Having already had one of their own betray them and the Republic for a second time, the Jedi Order, fearing repercussions from the Republic Senate, abandon their Temple on Coruscant and flee to Ossus and Dantooine. However, not all the Jedi on Coruscant flee the planet, there are quite a few who stay in hopes of aiding the Republic in the war.

Supreme Chancellor Cressa, who over the years had been a staunch supporter of the Jedi Order, began to lose faith in the order after the defeat at Lehon, and after news of Darth Revan's betrayal. Just a few months into his tenure, he became gripped with paranoia over the extent of the power and influence of the Jedi Order, and ordered the Jedi who remained on Coruscant to be apprehended for "Treason and Crimes against the Republic". Across the galaxy, Jedi were rounded up by Republic soldiers and brought before the Republic Senate on Coruscant for trial. The Senate, under the guidance and close watchings of Supreme Chancellor Cressa, embarked on a month long trial of the Jedi Order, which ended with 10 Jedi being executed for Crimes against the Republic.

However, many in the Senate were angered over the arrest and execution of the Jedi, and began to conspire the overthrow of Supreme Chancellor Cressa. After many scrapped plans, they finally found their way to remove him from power, via a Mandalorian Mercenary named Bevik Skirata. Exactly one week after the highly-publicized "Jedi Trials" were over, the Senate Blue Guard and Republic troops still loyal to the Jedi Order, vacated their posts and allowed Bevik Skirata to infiltrate Supreme Chancellor Tavker's chambers and assassinate him.

With the corruption within the senate, Peace does not seem to last long for the Republic as one of the Republic's most feared enemies, the Mandalorians, under the leadership of Canderous Ordo, attacks Onderon. Aggressions between the Republic Forces and the Mandalorians begin to grow and rumors of a "second mandalorian war" are spoken across the republic. It isn't long however before the Mandalorians strike once more, declaring war on the republic, by simultaneously attacking three planet's that surround their territory.

When the Galaxy seems to be at its darkest point, and it seems that things couldn't get any worse for the Republic, Darth Revan begins his assault on the Republic. Many planets, emboldened by the return of Darth Revan swear allegiance to the Dark Lord and withdrew their Senators from the Republic Senate. Within a matter of only three years, the Dark Lord's army had conquered nearly all that remained of the Republic, destroying any traces of the Republic. With the Galaxy in the control of the Sith, A "Great Jedi Purge" is unleashed on the galaxy, as Sith Assassin's began to hunt down and kill any Jedi who were unlucky enough to cross their paths.

However, not all hope is lost for the Republic, as Cells of Rebellion remain, refusing to go quietly. The Jedi Order remains, but are still in hiding....rebuilding the order after near annihilation.
