Unknown to much of the galaxy this planet remained in isolation. Jedi had however discovered the planet, and placed a temple here when they realized that much of the planets inhabitants had strong connections to the force. This of course not only brought the jedi...but the Sith as well. One night it happened, like a sudden storm a figure landed on the planet and began systematically destroying one settlement after another. While the people tried to fight back this being was like a monster. It changed it's shape constantly, ripping apart those that got in its way. It also wielded the same power as the Jedi, this frightened the inhabitants even more.
What Jedi were there tried their hand at stopping this monster. Within weeks the Jedis numbers were cut in half. Two months had past since the dark beings arrival, and all attempts at sending any sort of distress signal failed. Both the Jedi and the people were cut off and trapped with a nightmare. What was left of the population and Jedi, several thousand in number took refuge in the last remaining stronghold...the Jedi temple. While the Jedi did this in an attempt to protect what was left of the people, all they did was make the dark beings reason for being here even easier. He fell upon the temple laying waste to the remaining Jedi. Once the last Master fell he enacted his plan. Reaching deep within his knowledge of the force and the dark arts the being chanted in the ancient sith tongue. His words flowed forth, dripping with power and filling the air with a darkness that blocked out all light. Tendrils of energy shot forth from the planets very surface and surged through the temple. One by one every remaining being was struck, their life essence and energy being drained. Around the dark figure a circle glowed, his body enveloped in a glowing black aura he continued to chant.
The true intent for this being coming to the planet was simple. Like the infamous Darth Nihilus this Sith Master too had become cursed with the hunger. More and more his body craved the force, the life essence of other living beings, however unlike Nihilus this Sith did not simply sit back and resign himself to his fate. Instead he spent years digging for knowledge, information, anything to help him. And he finally found it. A ritual that would help rid him of this hunger. It require a lot of power......and sacrifice. This planet and its people proved the perfect staging ground. All around the being the planet itself started to die, its own life force being drained. A rumbling shook the ground beneath shortly following a large crack formed ripping the ground open revealing a dark abyss. Eyes surging a bright crimson peered into the abyss. With all his might the being cast the power gathering around him into the abyss, ripping from his very own being the hunger that plagued him. His body fell to the ground, the surge of energy coalescing in the abyss below, it roared in anger. Having gathered so much energy, so much life force the darkness took on a life of its own, and it was pissed at being sealed away in a planets core. A great bellow came from the dark beast that shook the very planet, yet it was all it could do before the chasm closed back up sealing the creature hopefully for good. Much of the planet was dead, its entire civilization wiped away, only ruins left behind to tell their story. This is what the dark being left in his wake, and now that he was free of his curse.....nowhere in the galaxy was safe.
Above the uninhabited planet a massive space station loomed. From it transport ships of all sizes came and went, dropping off both supplies and workers. About 5 years ago a very aggressive project to repopulate and restore this planet went underway. Several rich business owners had discovered the planet and, upon a few previous expeditionary trips discovered the ruins...including a Jedi temple. While they also found possible resource deposits the true reason for coming here was known to them and them alone. Aboard the space station thousands moved about, beings of countless races all working towards the same goal...or so they thought. One among them was here for a far different reason.....one not of creation but of destruction. Waling among the masses as a mere normal human he quietly observed what was going on.
The dark being had returned.....but why was also a mystery. For now he kept his presence hidden. Blending in with the rest, biding his time for the right moment.
