- "Also known as the Second Sith War and the War of the Star Forge, the Jedi Civil War is one of the darkest eras in galactic history. Three centuries ago, a pair of idealistic young Jedi named Revan and Malak led thousands of followers into the Outer Rim to do battle with an invading Mandalorian army. The Mandalorians were defeated–and Revan and Malak returned to the Republic not as heroes, but as conquerors. Declaring themselves Dark Lords of the Sith, Darth Revan and Darth Malak began the ruthless subjugation of Republic worlds in the Outer Rim. The Jedi Council, which had been loath to take action against the Mandalorians, assembled an army to bring the traitors to justice. Darth Revan was captured during an attack by the Jedi Knight Bastila Shan and eventually turned back to the light side. Together Revan and Bastila defeated Malak, ending the threat."

The Jedi Civil War, also known as the Second Sith War, the Old Republic Insurrection, the Malak War and the War of the Star Forge, was a war between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic that lasted from 3959 BBY to 3956 BBY. Whilst the final battle achieved a decisive victory for the Republic, it came at such a great cost that the Republic struggled to rebuild. This allowed the remnants of the Sith to obtain an overall psychological victory by causing the complete extermination of the Jedi Order.
