History

Pre-Republic

The Force Wars of Tython

It was on this world that the brightest and best philosophers, priests, scientists and warriors came together in 32,800 BTC 1 to discuss their discoveries involving the enigmatic, mystical Ashla. Dissidents who used the Bogan eventually arose around 22,140 BTC 1, sparking the Force Wars of Tython. From the ashes of these wars arose the early Jedi, whose Jedi Forge initiation ceremony led to the invention of lightsabers after they faced threats from beyond Tython.

Initially, the Jedi believed their power was limited to Tython only, though this was later proven otherwise when a proactive group left Tython to liberate other worlds, becoming the Jedi Knights around 22,130 BTC 1. Jedi from Tython founded a philosophy school on Ossus, defining the light side and dark side of the Force (equivalent, respectively, to the ancient Ashla and Bogan), and the Living Force and Unifying Force. Some legends claimed that Tython’s explorers traveled to Caamas to learn proper moral judgment.

Old Republic

Tython was cleansed of terentateks by the Great Hunt in 341 BTC 1.

The Jedi Temple on Tython. It was rebuilt after the Treaty of Coruscant

Sometime prior to the Great Galactic War, Tython’s location was lost. Shortly after the Sacking of Coruscant in 0 ATC 2, it was rediscovered by the Jedi Satele Shan. The Jedi Order subsequently relocated to Tython. There, they attempted to rebuild their order, despite trouble with a local Twi’lek pilgrim colony and a mysterious influence emanating from the world itself. Around this time, a group of marauders, known as the Flesh Raiders, began attacking the population of Tython. The planet’s native inhabitants asked the Jedi for help in combating the Raiders, but the Order refused, as it wanted to keep out of local affairs on Tython.
