"The history of the Ascendancy is in these rooms, some of the pieces dating back to Chiss participation in the wars between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire."
Thrawn, to Ziara[src]

The Sith Wars were a series of conflicts fought for control of the galaxy[4] between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. The Chiss Ascendancy also participated in the conflicts, and encountered a number of aliens before retreating to their borders.[1] Cervil the Uncanny, a Jedi who fought in the conflict, left behind testimonies about members of the Jedi Order using lightwhips in order to defend against Forbidden Forms used by the Sith.[5] The Forbidden District, located on the planet Exegol, housed derelict shipyard forges that dated back to the Sith Wars.[4]
