Sadow, known as Naga Sadow in the Qel-Droma Epics, was an ancient Sith Lord who at one point, according to the Epics, led the Sith Empire during the Great Hyperspace War against Empress Teta and the Jedi Order. Naga Sadow also triggered the Cron Supernova, decimating the rumored Jedi retreat world of Ossus and leaving it barren and scarred.

Sadow's likeness was chiseled into the rock walls on the hidden Sith world of Exegol, and his voice was among several unintelligible whispers of Sith Lords that were heard by Supreme Leader of the First Order and master of the Knights of Ren Kylo Ren when he confronted Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious in 35 ABY.

BiographyEdit

Great Hyperspace WarEdit

Sadow was an ancient Sith Lord[2] who, according to the Qel-Droma Epics series of poems, was known as Naga Sadow and was active thousands of years before the time of Jedi Knight Ulic Qel-Droma. At this time, the Sith Empire conducted an invasion, which began the Great Hyperspace War. Empress Teta allied itself with the Jedi Order and defeated Sadow's forces, scattering them across the galaxy. The Qel-Droma Epics also claimed that the planet Ossus was a Jedi retreat that was annihilated when Naga Sadow triggered stars in the Cron Cluster nearby, becoming the Cron Supernova. The supernova left Ossus barren and scarred.[3]

LegacyEdit

Sadow's likeness was chiseled into the rock walls of the Sith Citadel on the hidden Sith planet of Exegol, located in the Unknown Regions,[2] by 35 ABY.[4] When Supreme Leader of the First Order and master of the Knights of Ren Kylo Ren arrived on Exegol to confront Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious, he maneuvered through the Sith Citadel and recognized a number of statues of Sith Lords from his studies that were etched into the walls.[2]

Of those he recognized were the Sith Lords Locphet, Mindran, Sissiri, Felkor, and Sadow. While there, Ren also heard their unintelligible whispers, along with the familiar voice of Sidious, which he had been hearing since childhood.[2] Sadow's name was shared with the Sadow escarpment, an ancient Sith redoubt on Exegol.[5]
