Located in a far uncharted region of the galaxy, the native inhabitants of Korriban known today as Sith Pure Bloods were unknown to the rest of the galaxy. While not the first to discover the planet, when Karness Muur and the other exiled dark jedi landed on Korriban they were seen as gods and goddesses. Under the dark jedi leadership and the unusually Force sensitive red skined inhabitants, a new super power in the galaxy was born. As years passed the Sith race expanded their empire to nearby star systems and erected huge palaces and burial complexes to honor their fallen Dark Lords.

Under the leadership Naga Sadow the Sith Empire challenged the Republic during the Great Hyperspace war. The outcome of the war left Korriban in ruin and the Sith nearly extinct. Fleeing to uncharted space and under the new leadership of the Sith Emperor, Dromund Kaas was rediscovered. There the Sith Empire was able to rebuild. After a millennia the sith returned to Korriban to retake their home world at the begining of the Great Galactic War.

With the vast knowledge stored in the Sith Academy and undiscovered secrets buried in the Valley of the Dark Lords, Korriban is always a target for a Republic invasion. One such raid was successful very recently. Known as the Korriban Incursion, The Republic only held the world a short while before being retaken by the Sith Empire.

Today anyone in the sith empire found to be force sensitive are required to train at Korriban. They either succeed and become sith, or die.
