'''Part XII: The Feeding of Malachor V'''<br />
'''Time frame: 3,955 - 3,953 B.B.Y.'''<br />
'''Period name: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords'''

It is a period of uncertainty across the galaxy. After a long and vicious battle in the deepest area of the STAR FORGE, Dark Lord of the Sith DARTH REVAN succeeds in destroying his ex-apprentice DARTH MALAK. After recovering from the duel, Revan seeks out the secret dark outposts he established during the Mandalorian War. Journeying to the Outer Rim in the EBON HAWK, Revan is focused with a single purpose: locating the source of the dark power on MALACHOR V. Those awaiting Revan's arrival, including members of the Sith and the Jedi, are shocked when he fails to return from this pilgrimage. It is unknown whether Revan destroyed or resurrected the primal Sith forces on this forbidden planetoid.<br />
[...]<br />
JEDI MASTER KREIA, Revan's old mentor, is still haunted by guilt, wondering whether it was her teaching that resulted in Revan's fall to the dark side, and begins to search for him. Sensing his last location, she travels to Malachor V, but is unable to shield her emotions, and is completely consumed by the dark side of the Force. She is lost to the Jedi, spending the next several years on Malachor V, learning its secrets, and eventually becoming The master of the Sith academy there. Guided by Kreia's influence, Sith assassins once again begin to emerge silently from Malachor V and strike at isolated Jedi across the Republic, capturing some Jedi to turn to the dark side, and slaying those that resist. Taken to the dark side world of Malachor V to be fed to the planet's dark energies, these Jedi husks create even more assassins and DARK JEDI, feeding the planet's hunger.

In the following months, the Jedi received numerous unsubstantiated reports that Revan and Malak had been spotted on various Republic worlds. Later, it would be revealed that they were completing a survey of planets that they had learned were once under the dominion of the mysterious Infinite Empire. Dantooine, Korriban, Manaan, Tatooine, and Kashyyyk were all visited in the hopes of finding clues to the location of the ancient Rakatan superweapon. Upon those remote worlds, Revan and Malak found the keys that would grant them access to enough power to topple the Republic—Star Maps that would lead them to the Star Forge.

[[File:Emporer_Palpatine_(new_face).jpg|thumb|right|125px|Darth Sidious, Vader's Master.]]

From the bridge of the Star Forge, hidden in the unmapped Rakata system, Revan founded a new Sith Empire. Suspecting that the Mandalorian Wars were but a staged prelude to an attack by remnants of the ancient Sith, Revan decided to strike first. Believing deeply in the Sith precept of empowerment through conflict, he would attempt to conquer the galaxy in order to safeguard it or, should he fail, strengthen it through his own defeat. Revan became 'Darth' Revan and christened himself Dark Lord of the Sith. He chose his old friend Malak as his apprentice and Malak reluctantly assumed the lesser role in a grudging acknowledgment of Revan’s strength. Later, some such as Kreia would postulate that Revan did not 'fall' to the dark side, but rather embraced it in the hope of saving the galaxy from the True Sith.
