"I am the Eye of the Nihil, and I see the battle you're fighting. I see the Republic, trying to take away your freedom, trying to take your hard-won credits, trying to take away your way of life…they want you dead. Just for living. Just for being. Just for walking a path they don't own."
―Ro, to Milliko's Tempest[1]

A conflict occurred in the Outer Rim Territories between Galactic Republic and the anarchistic pirates Nihil during the High Republic Era, beginning after the Great Hyperspace Disaster, a terrorist attack instigated by the Eye of the Nihil Marchion Ro.

The conflict[]

"Very well. But if we stay, we stay and fight. We don't sit on our hands and hope someone gives us cause to strike back. We don't engage in the same folly that's had us on our heels all year, barely ready for each new wave of attacks, lashing out reactively instead of taking the initiative."
Jedi Master Cohmac Vitus reflects on how the Jedi have handled the Nihil conflict[6]

The Galactic Republic, aided by the Jedi, fought back against the Nihil at the Battle of Kur, and believed them to be defeated,[1] but however the Nihil would reveal themselves to not be destroyed when they attacked and destroyed the Valo Republic Fair.[3] In the aftermath of this attack, the Republic and the Jedi together formed Operation: Counterstrike, which was a series of coordinated counterstrikes that caused the Nihil to scatter.[5]

Following the destruction of Starlight Beacon, Marchion Ro sent out a broadcast from his flagship, the Gaze Electric, where he revealed himself to the galaxy and Republic, and asserted himself as the chief controller of the galaxy.[7]

Legacy[]

Sometime Between Ro's broadcast and the rule of the Galactic Empire, the Nihil became obsolete.[10]

Around 82 BBY,[11] towards the end of the High Republic Era,[12] the Jedi Padawan Sean recalled the Nihil as an illicit organization that once invaded the Galactic Republic.[13]
