Important events

The year 3,957 before the Battle of Yavin (BBY) was a period of time during the Jedi Civil War. After having been Dark Lord of the Sith and overseeing the war effort against the Galactic Republic and Jedi Order for two years, Darth Revan's flagship was boarded by a Jedi strike team led by Bastila Shan. During the ensuing lightsaber standoff, where the Jedi intended to defeat Revan, Revan's apprentice, Darth Malak, used it as an opportunity to fire aboard his master's ship.[1]

Believing Revan dead, Malak usurped the mantle of Dark Lord and became the leader of the Second Sith Empire. Revan, meanwhile, survived the attack, but his memory was shattered. The Jedi team brought the critically injured Revan before the Jedi High Council, where they spared his life and erased his memories, creating a new identity for him free of the knowledge that he was once the Dark Lord. Revan would regain his memory one year later and, having chose the path of redemption, defeat Darth Malak and end the Jedi Civil War.[1]
