"The Aionomica, the Rammahgon, a dozen other mystic-sounding made-up names—the foundation of the ancient faith."
―Luke Skywalker[src]

The Rammahgon was a well-known and influential work, one of the sacred Jedi texts, written in the Coremaic language with at least one chapter authored by a Jedi known as Kli the Elder, that compiled many origin stories of the Jedi. The original Rammahgon was believed to have been destroyed for over 5,000 years, until it was discovered by Luke Skywalker in the subterranean ruins on Ossus, and was later stored by Luke in the tree library on Temple Island on the planet Ahch-To.

Overview[]

The Rammahgon was a well-known and influential work,[3] one of the sacred Jedi texts,[6] written in the ancient, lost[7] Coremaic language and protobesh cartouches, that contained four different and conflicting origin stories for the cosmos and the Force, and precepts derived from them. The Fourth Precept was a poem describing gods battling in the primeval universe, and is referenced by an omniscient "eye" on the cover. The book also contained information on Sith wayfinders and several diagrams of them, with one of them being at least 4,000 years old. It mentioned Exegol several times and even listed hyperspatial waypoints to the Sith stronghold, with annotations added by Luke Skywalker, connecting it to Ahch-To. Other pages described deep space dangers and the Galactic Barrier.[3]

At least one chapter was authored by a Jedi known as Kli the Elder:[2]

The Prime is One, but the Jedi are Many. The Sith were Many but often emerge Ruled by Two. The Seeds of the Jedi have been Sown throughout the Galaxy, on Ossus, Jedha, Xenxiar, and Others. The Sith have no Seeds, since what they Bury does not Grow. They are the Despoilers of Worlds, and have Laid to Waste once Fertile Habitats such as Korriban, Ziost, Ixigul, Asog, and Others.

Description[]

Early history[]

The Rammahgon was written sometime before 4965 BBY,[4] with at least one chapter authored by a Jedi known as Kli the Elder.[2]

Sometime before or during 3965 BBY,[8] a detailed illustration of Sith wayfinder was added to the book.[3]

New Republic era[]

"I'm gonna pick up Luke's search for Exegol."
―Rey[src]

During the rise of the New Republic, in his travels across the galaxy, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker explored the subterranean ruins of Ossus and discovered the original Rammahgon text, which was thought to have been destroyed over five thousand years beforehand. He later collected the book, along with seven other bound books,[3] in the tree library on Temple Island on the planet Ahch-To.[6] Skywalker added his knowledge of the Sith wayfinder to the book along with additions to the book's route to Exegol.[3]

In 34 ABY,[9] Rey discovered the tree library and Luke Skywalker explained to her what it was. In doing so, he told her the names of the books Aionomica and Rammahgon. Rey took the sacred Jedi texts, including the Rammahgon, onto the Millennium Falcon when she left Ahch-To.[6]

One year later,[10] Rey studied the Rammahgon with the help of the historian Beaumont Kin to begin to find the way to Exegol, spelled "Ixigul" in the book, where her grandfather, Darth Sidious, Dark Lord of the Sith and the leader of the Sith Eternal, awaited.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The Rammahgon first appeared in the 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi,[5] and was identified as such in its novelization.[6] In Star Wars Legends, Luke Skywalker found ancient Jedi book in the Hall of Knowledge of the Great Jedi Library ruins on the planet Ossus.[11]
