{{Quote|Its next round of rediscovery came by someone who rejected the Rule of Two, who thought that there was more than enough of the dark side to go around. He founded a religion that would become known as the Dark Force. There's an ancient temple there still. It was serviced for centuries by the Dark Prophets. It's so steeped in the dark side that it formed its own nexus-one so powerful it interferes with all weaponry and technology except for lightsabers.|[[Luke Skywalker/Legends|Luke Skywalker]], about Dromund Kaas and Darth Millennial|Fate of the Jedi: Ascension}}

At the [[Time/Legends|time]], the reigning [[Dark Lord of the Sith/Legends|Dark Lord of the Sith]] were [[Darth Cognus]] and her [[Sith apprentice/Legends|disciple]], the three-[[Eye/Legends|eyed]] mutant [[Darth Millennial]]. As members of the [[Order of the Sith Lords|Banite Sith]], they followed the [[Rule of Two/Legends|Rule of Two]], which decreed that only two Sith could exist at any given time: the [[Sith Master/Legends|master]] and his or her apprentice. Millennial, however, came to find that doctrine too restrictive. While he had often been at odds with his master, Millennial rebelled against the teachings of Cognus once too many. Barely escaping the confrontation with Cognus, Millennial took refuge on [[Dromund Kaas]], a [[Planet/Legends|planet]] that had long history with the Sith. In his new haven, Millennial kept meditating on the teachings of the Sith while also studying the works of [[Plaristes]] and [[Dak Ramis]], two controversial philosophers who had lived [[25,053 BBY|over 25,000 years]] earlier.<ref name="END">{{Hyperspace|url=hyperspace/member/insideronline/88/indexp2.html|text=Evil Never Dies: The Sith Dynasties|int=Evil Never Dies: The Sith Dynasties}}</ref>

Millennial came to regard himself as a prophet chosen by the will of the Force itself. He founded a new sect he called the Dark Force, anointing himself the [[Supreme Prophet of the Dark Side]]. His philosophy, which drew on Millennial's Sith roots as well as on Plaristes' and Ramis' writings, started to attract many followers. While some of the new cultists were intellectually brilliant, many of them were much more naïve. At any rate, those who called into question the Dark Force tenets were condemned to [[Death/Legends|death]] for heresy.<ref name="END" />
