Tython is a planet located in the Coreward Worlds region of the galaxy. The world is recognized as the birthplace of the Force tradition that would eventually give rise to the Jedi Order. Following the destruction of the Jedi Temple at the end of the Great War, an act carried out by the Sith Empire to ensure the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, the Temple was relocated to Tython in order to train the next generation of Jedi.[1][2]

Background[]

In-Game Codex Entry

"The mysterious Deep Core world of Tython is the birthplace of the Jedi Order. Millennia ago, Tythonian warriors and scholars developed a unique mystic and martial philosophy while studying the Force. Today, their Jedi descendants excavate ancient Tythonian ruins and relearn what was lost. After the recent destruction of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, the Jedi made their new home on Tython. The mountainous planet remains mostly unexplored, and the violent natives pose a constant threat. The order remains committed to rebuilding here, however, and is now training a new generation of Padawans."

The planet Tython was the site that saw the beginning of what would eventually become the Jedi Order; scholars visited the world to study the mysteries of the Force, but eventually abandoned their work when their research uncovered dark secrets that killed many and threatened to destroy the planet. The survivors of this near-cataclysm fled off-world. Tython was forgotten, and over time these scholars became the first Jedi. The planet's location remained unknown until its eventual rediscovery in the early years of the Great War. Jedi returned to Tython and began to rediscover their forgotten heritage.[2]

When the Great War came to an end the Sith Empire destroyed the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. The Jedi Council made the decision to rebuild the Temple on Tython, and now the Order's next generation is trained among ruins that serve as a reminder of dark secrets that remain hidden to this day.[2]
