Monolith

Given enough intellect, knowledge, fortitude and power, Sith alchemy can be used to achieve the seemingly impossible, such as transforming flesh and bone to form vicious Sithspawn such as the imposing Massassi and the unstoppable Terentatek. But Monoliths are something beyond Sithspawn: they are everlasting monstrosities built not on a foundation of living tissue but of dark side energy itself. Enduring and merciless and quite possibly unkillable, Monoliths plainly illustrate the immeasurable power of their creator and are best avoided at all costs.

The Sixth Line

"There is no contemplation, there is only duty."

It is a declaration more in line with a rank-and-file soldier than a Jedi, and yet it is a guiding principle of the squad known as the Sixth Line. Their commander, Master Surro, is said to have made the phrase her personal mantra as she waged war against the Empire on the front lines of Balmorra, where her unwavering resolve to accomplish whatever her commanding officers asked of her set her apart from other Jedi.

Details of the formation of the Sixth Line and how they came to work with SIS Agent Theron Shan are sparse. Scattered reports in recent years do suggest that a group of "Jedi commandos" have been involved in raids and strikes not officially sanctioned by the Republic, though the validity of such reportage is typically seen as unreliable.

Galactic History 94: The Sacking of Coruscant

The rise of the Sith Empire seemed unstoppable. The Republic had suffered vast losses; many worlds were even rebelling to save themselves. So when the Sith Empire suddenly offered to discuss a peace treaty, the Galactic Senate was suspicious--but the Supreme Chancellor could not ignore a chance to end the war.

Delegations from both sides travelled to Alderaan, but in a daring strike, the Empire attacked Coruscant and held the planet hostage. The Supreme Chancellor was forced to sign the Treaty of Coruscant dictated by the Empire, ending hostilities and handing over several apparently insignificant planets.

Many Sith, including Darth Malgus, were furious. They had believed the treaty was a cunning ruse; it made no sense to actually agree to peace. Many in the Republic, too, believed the treaty was only a delaying tactic before the killing blow. The Treaty of Coruscant had been signed; whether the peace would be kept was a different matter.

Galactic History 95: A Cold War Begins

With the Treaty of Coruscant signed, the war was officially over. But recalling vast armies took time. Meanwhile, many individuals on both sides either didn't believe the treaty was real, or refused to accept it. Skirmishes continued for months, including a bombing attack on the Senate tower.

The Republic had earned a reprieve. Although the war had crippled its military, the Republic quietly poured resources into training small but elite Special Forces squads. Blamed in part for not preventing the Sacking of Coruscant, the Jedi Order left for its ancient homeworld, Tython. There, in secret, the order could rebuild.

With its resources no longer stretched by galactic conquest, the Sith Empire began to secure its new holdings, its citizens jubilant at their victory. However, questions still lingered about why the Empire had not destroyed the Republic when it had the chance. The galaxy settled into an uncertain peace, with both sides watching for any betrayal.

Death of a World

Global cataclysms are not unheard of. Whole worlds teeming with life have been rendered lifeless by meteorites, broken apart by instability in the planet's own core--even atomized by the destructive force of a supernova. But the eerie calm of a world stripped of life yet left otherwise intact is another matter altogether. Whispered rumors have persisted of planets snuffed out through intricate Sith rituals or by way of deadly, arcane machines--such as the device Revan sought to employ on Yavin 4--but Ziost represents a clear display of the corrosive power of the dark side of the Force taken to its extreme.

In her address to the Galactic Republic, Supreme Chancellor Leontyne Saresh mourned the loss of life, vowing to "stop the mad Sith Emperor at any cost." Similarly, word has filtered through the Sith Empire that the Dark Council is actively hunting their former Emperor while also working with renowned Sith alchemists on a plan to destroy the one they call Vitiate for good.

Revolt on Ziost

No society is devoid of the potential for raucous dissent from its people, and tightly controlled populations are the most prone to opposition being expressed through horrific acts of violence. Through the centuries, Ziost has been the focus of many attempts at bloody revolution. Though no uprising has been successful to date, their cost in lives, property and stability have taken a toll on the one-time Sith capital.

The most recent revolt came in the form of vicious attacks from the Ziost Liberation Front, a group of guerrilla fighters officially recognized by the Sith Empire as a terrorist organization. The ZLF did not discern between military and civilian targets in their desperate campaign to overthrow the Empire, making the group feared even by those they claimed to be fighting for. They were eventually snuffed out, but not before causing severe damage to New Adasta's infrastructure. As a result of the ZLF's actions, the Empire has taken considerable steps to ensure they can obstruct the acts of a hostile populace in New Adasta with ease and haste, should the need arise.

The Emperor's Eye

The following inscription can be found on the face of a simple yet elegant memorial on Ziost. It appears to have existed for quite some time.

Though you leave us
Your humble subjects on Ziost
We know it is not forever

Though you are away
Your eye gazes upon us
We know you see our doings

Though we are alone
Your lessons remain
We know our considerable duty

Though the distance must be great
Your return is a certainty
We know we will be united once more

As if you were never gone

The Invasion of Ziost

"It is a decision I do not take lightly. Any incursion into Imperial space is fraught with the gravest of danger for every brave soldier who fights in our name. But there is a humanitarian crisis of the highest order on Ziost that demands our attention. When Imperial troops indiscriminately fire upon indentured slaves and helpless civilians, we cannot stand idly by. Those who cannot defend themselves--who have done no wrong yet find themselves under the thumb of the oppressive Sith Empire--must not be left to suffer.

"Someone must fight for them."

--Excerpted from the HoloNet address of the Galactic Republic's Supreme Chancellor Leontyne Saresh

Agent Rane Kovach

Shared from Sith Intelligence Minister Lana Beniko's Asset Notes:

"I took it upon myself to see to a resurgent cell of the Ziost Liberation Front. The guerrilla fighters had been wreaking chaos and destruction in New Adasta, so instead of taking the time to develop assets within the organization, I opted for a more direct approach. However, I was surprised to find upon discovering the location of their headquarters that I wasn't the only one targeting the ZLF cell. Curious, I decided to see how matters would play out without me.

"Rane Kovach displayed determination and guile in his dismantling of the cell, though he did require my assistance in the end. Despite his strong distaste for the ZLF, he maintained a level of calm and rationality that I found appealing. After an extensive background check, as well as mandatory physical and cerebral stress tests, it was my judgment that Rane Kovach would make a valuable Sith Intelligence asset. He does have a tendency to value innocent life over all else to a fault, but I firmly believe he can be made to see that the needs of the Empire ultimately serve the needs of the galaxy as a whole."

SIS Asset Brief: Agent Rane Kovach

Asset Kovach first encountered in connection with Ziost Liberation Front [REF: ZO-1411]. Attempted to assume leadership position, dissuade ZLF from targeting civilians. Ultimately unsuccessful.

Approached by Agent Theron Shan [REF: ST-66] to infiltrate similar dissident groups, foment revolution while minimizing casualties. Assignments included Jurio, Drezzi. Reassigned upon discovery of possible IMPERIAL INTELLIGENCE reorganization on Ziost. Asset Kovach earned respect, trust of Sith Lord Lana Beniko [REF: BL-172]. Recruited into new SITH INTELLIGENCE headed under Beniko. Has since provided organizational schema, select asset details.

Potential for high-level installation promising. Short-term gains are to be deprioritized against the long term.

Vitiate

A past shrouded in secrets. A future clouded by uncertainty. It was believed that the once-and-former Sith Emperor sought to consume all life in the galaxy to grant him the dark power required to attain immortality... but is that still the case? Was it ever? Did he actually have another plan all along?

The man now called Vitiate by those who once served him was not strong enough to usurp all life on Yavin 4 after his reawakening. However, he did gain power enough to flee the jungle moon and survive. Now that he has found in Ziost a suitable target to replenish himself--now that he appears to grow more powerful by the hour--what now? When will his unforgiving depletion of Ziost end? And when it does end, what fate will befall the rest of the galaxy?

Ziost

Situated in the heart of Imperial Space, Ziost has long played a vital role in the intricate history of the Sith. For thousands of years, in fact, the craggy, arid world served as the ancient Sith Empire's capital until infighting splintered its leadership. Today, Ziost remains an important commercial, political and population center of the Empire--this in spite of its shift from a warm climate with dense forests to a bitterly cold tundra. Whether this environmental turnabout is due to geological reasons or eons of dark side influence remains a subject of scholarly consideration.
