Phobos was a Sith Lord who was considered ancient[1] by the year 35 ABY.[2] The Sith Eternal, a Sith cult operating at that time, adopted the tradition of naming its Sith trooper units after ancient Sith.[1]

Following that practice, the 39th Legion was named after Phobos. Since the history of the Sith largely remained a secret to the rest of the galaxy, only members of the Sith Eternal were aware of the significance of the unit's name.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Phobos was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary,[1] a reference book for the eponymous film published on December 20, 2019.[3] A Theelin Sith Lord named Darth Phobos had previously appeared in the Star Wars Legends continuity. In Legends, she was originally created as an exclusive character for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable and Wii versions of the 2008 video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, developed by Krome Studios and published by LucasArts.[4]
