The '''Great Sith War''', also known as the '''Sith War''', the '''First Sith War''', the '''Exar Kun War''' and the '''Great Shadow Crusade''' to the [[Mandalorian/Legends|Mandalorians]], was a [[The galaxy/Legends|galaxy-wide]] conflict which took place in [[3996 BBY]]. One of the largest engagements of the [[Old Sith Wars]], the Great Sith War saw the rise of the [[Sith/Legends|Sith]], once again in opposition to the [[Jedi Order/Legends|Jedi Order]]. The roots of the conflict are traced back to the fall of [[Freedon Nadd]] from the Jedi way and his ascension to [[Dark Lord of the Sith/Legends|Dark Lord of the Sith]]. Eventually his dark influence was discovered on the [[Planet/Legends|planet]] [[Onderon/Legends|Onderon]] and the ensuing [[Battle of Iziz|battle]] saw the [[Jedi/Legends|Jedi]] temporarily break Nadd's hold on the remote planet. This fight against the resurgent power of the Sith was a warning to the Jedi that something ominous was brewing.

This fight against the resurgent power of the Sith was a warning to the Jedi that something ominous was brewing.
   
The influence of the Sith, however, again resurfaced during the [[Freedon Nadd Uprising]], which managed to establish the means for the [[Krath/Legends|Krath]] to grow in power and influence. Using Sith knowledge that they had gained from Nadd and his followers on Onderon, the Krath instituted a bloody coup in the [[Empress Teta system/Legends|Empress Teta system]] and began a series of campaigns aimed at [[Galactic Republic/Legends|Republic]] space. After several defeats at the hands of the Krath, [[Jedi Knight/Legends|Jedi Knight]] [[Ulic Qel-Droma]] advised the Jedi Order that he would infiltrate the Krath and destroy them from within. During his undercover mission, Ulic fell to the dark side and joined forces with another fallen Jedi-turned-Sith by the name of [[Exar Kun/Legends|Exar Kun]]. Eventually, Kun was anointed the new Dark Lord of the Sith with Qel-Droma his apprentice, and together they ushered [[The galaxy/Legends|the galaxy]] into a new Sith age.

With their allies, Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma launched a series of deadly campaigns against the Republic, eventually making their way to the heart of the galaxy&mdash;[[Coruscant/Legends|Coruscant]]. Following this [[Battle of Coruscant (Great Sith War)|battle]] Kun and Qel-Droma launched an assault on Ossus, in an attempt to raid the planet of its Jedi artifacts. However, the battle of Ossus saw the defeat of the Sith forces, the capture of Ulic Qel-Droma, and the retreat of Kun to his base on [[Yavin 4/Legends|Yavin 4]]. Broken and humbled, Qel-Droma agreed to lead the combined forces of the [[Republic Rim Fleet]] and the Jedi to Yavin 4, in an effort to defeat Exar Kun. Under the combined efforts of the Jedi, Kun was defeated and the Great Sith War brought to an end.

Explaining the threat of the Krath, and the dangers that the reemerging Sith posed, Ulic proposed a plan to deal with the Krath and destroy the threat of the Sith. While many of the Jedi gathered on Deneba wished to escalate the war and use the Republic's and the Jedis' full military might against the Krath, Ulic believed that he could infiltrate the Krath and destroy them from within. Ulic argued his plan&mdash;which he believed could save countless lives&mdash;to the gathered Jedi assembly. However, many Jedi, including Arca Jeth, [[Dace Diath]], and [[Shoaneb Culu]], spoke of the dangers posed by attempting to infiltrate the Dark Side. Master Jeth advised Ulic that it was not possible to destroy the Dark Side; the best one could hope was to contain it, as Master [[Thon]] had done on [[Ambria/Legends|Ambria]]. Nonetheless, Master Jeth argued that through the combined efforts of the Jedi they could create a wall of light to push back and control the reemerging Sith.<ref name="Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith 3: Descent to the Dark Side" />

While the Jedi were discussing which course of action to pursue, a [[Tetan Corsair]] had managed to disguise itself among the thousands of Jedi ships orbiting Deneba. At the order of Satal Keto, the Corsair launched a large amount of [[Krath war droid/Legends|Krath war droids]] which rained down upon the assembled Jedi on Mount Meru. Concurrent with the Krath war droid attack on the assembly, the Jedis' [[Service droid/Legends|servant droids]], which had been sabotaged by Krath spies, also attacked the Jedi. The ensuing fight was a vicious affair and saw the deaths of many Jedi&mdash;however, the Jedi put up a ferocious defense and managed to push back the Krath attack. During the defensive actions, Master Jeth demonstrated the talent of [[Ionize|droid disable]] which he had perfected during the [[Great Droid Revolution]] of [[4015 BBY]], using the Force to rip apart the droids' internal circuitry. Despite the efforts of the Jedi defenders, some of their numbers were killed by the overwhelming droid attack, including Jeth, who was fatally wounded from a shot to the back at the hands of a Krath War Droid. In the arms of Ulic Qel-Droma, he passed on and became [[Oneness|one with the Force]].

Meanwhile, far away from the conclave on Deneba, the young Jedi [[Exar Kun/Legends|Exar Kun]] had turned from the light and began to travel down the slippery path of the dark side. Kun believed that he could study the dark side and learn Sith knowledge without succumbing to its power&mdash;his ignorance, however, would have dire consequences for the entire galaxy.

Kun was a talented individual, and strong in the ways of the Force, who began his early Jedi training under Master [[Vodo-Siosk Baas]] on the planet of [[Dantooine/Legends|Dantooine]]. Despite his master's teaching, Kun was an overly ambitious and curious student who secretly studied any available knowledge pertaining to the [[Golden Age of the Sith]].

His descent to the dark side began with his curiosity of the Sith ways, and he eventually sought Sith knowledge on the ancient planets of Onderon, Korriban, and Yavin 4. From all of these planets he learned valuable Sith teachings, and apprenticed himself to the spirit of the long-dead Sith, Freedon Nadd. Learning what he could from the spirit of Freedon Nadd, Kun used his new Sith powers to destroy Nadd so he could rule the galaxy unopposed. After the destruction of Nadd's spirit, Kun traveled to the Empress Teta system to eliminate another threat to his rule&mdash;the fallen Jedi, Ulic Qel-Droma. Ulic, however, turned out to be a worthy adversary, and with the intervention of the spirit of Marka Ragnos, who anointed Kun the new Dark Lord of the Sith, and Ulic as Kun's Sith apprentice, the two became the new leaders of the Sith. With his new apprentice, Kun waged a brutal war against the Galactic Republic and Jedi Order, laying waste to the galaxy through several titanic battles. Eventually, Ulic turned away from the dark side and helped the Jedi defeat Kun at the Battle of Yavin 4. Kun, however, used his Sith powers to keep his spirit alive in a temple on the jungle moon's surface.<ref name="The Essential Chronology" />
