An [[:Wikipedia:Amnesia|amnesiac]] Revan&mdash;his memory of his time as a Sith Lord after falling to the dark side removed by the [[Jedi Council/Legends|Jedi Council]]&mdash;later found a vial of the curative serum on the body of a dead Sith [[Trooper/Legends|trooper]] while on Taris, and used it to heal several Outcasts infected with the rakghoul plague before finally giving it to the [[Upper City]] [[Doctor/Legends|doctor]], [[Zelka Forn]]. Forn was able to use this sample to synthesize a mass-produced serum that he shipped to the Outcasts and sold at a low price to all Tarisians. Shortly afterwards, Taris was subjected to a devastating orbital bombardment by Darth Malak's [[Sith armada (Lost Tribe of the Sith)|Sith armada]], killing an untold number of beings on the planet, including a significant number of rakghouls.<ref name="KotOR" />
