The region was hard to navigate, making Roon somewhat inaccessible; only two hyperspace routes were known to reach the planet. One, the Manda-Roon Merchant Route discovered by Mungo Baobab, was a challenge for seasoned astrogators and was demarcated by a series of "lightstation" nav beacons. The more secret Death Wind Corridor was a "back door" through the Cloak used by Twi'lek smugglers.
During the New Sith Wars, it was the core of the New Sith Empire ruled by the Brotherhood of Darkness. Following the final death of Palpatine, it was rumored that the Sith continued to exist and rebuild within the Cloak.
A female Force-sensitive Yuuzhan Vong operated within the Cloak of the Sith.
