Tython was a planet in the Deep Core that, according to some accounts, was the birth place of the Jedi Order. The Jedi operated a monastery on Tython during the Great Hutt Wars, and it served as the Order's central headquarters during the Great Galactic War.
Located in the Deep Core, Tython was surrounded by a number of astronomical anomalies, including a black hole and close clusters of star systems. The planet itself was a lush world with a number of villages. Tython had large green forests, which it became known for.
Due to the Jedi having been on the world for thousands of years, the planet did not have a dark side presence. Instead, the influence of the light side gave the planet a peaceful and serene aurora, which in turn influenced its inhabitants.
Although the Jedi Order was spawned from the Order of the Jedi Bendu after a schism on Coruscant, some historical accounts suggested that Tython was the birth place of the Jedi Order. Sometime prior to the Great Hutt Wars, the Jedi established a monastery on the planet. The astronomical anomalies in the Deep Core provided Tython a degree of protection from the Order's enemies.
By the time of the Great Hutt Wars, the Jedi had been a presence on Tython for thousands of years. These Jedi were made up of various different species. There were also a number of villages on the planet.
