The Spires of Victory was a monument located in the Sith Empire's capital of Kaas City on the planet Dromund Kaas. The Spires were commissioned by Darth Gorgos, a member of the Empire's ruling Dark Council, after the battle known as the Sacking of Coruscant that ended the Great Galactic War with the Galactic Republic in 3653 BBY. Designed by the Empire's best engineers and constructed by three hundred slaves, the Spires were symbolic—the cascading prisms represented the ascendancy of the Sith and the downfall of their enemies, and the centerpiece signified the Sith Emperor. While Gorgos was murdered by her apprentice before the Spires's completion, her apprentice oversaw the monument's completion before 3643 BBY.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Spires of Victory first appeared in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare in 2011, and its history is expanded on in a Codex entry. The Spires appear in a vision of a ruined Kaas City to Imperial players in the 2015 Digital Expansion Knights of the Fallen Empire.
