"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 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.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Sith Wars were first mentioned in the 2016 reference book Nexus of Power.[3]

In Star Wars Legends, the Chiss Ascendancy allied itself with the reconstituted Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War, the Cold War, and the Galactic War,[5] all of which took place from 3681 BBY onwards.[6] In addition, there were two Sith Wars in the Legends continuity: the Old Sith Wars, which lasted from 4000 BBY[7] to 3951 BBY,[8] and the New Sith Wars, which lasted from 2000 BBY to 1000 BBY.[7]
