Broodica was a female Dark Lord of the Sith who lived after the Hundred-Year Darkness. Along with several exiled renegades of the Jedi Order, Broodica conquered the Sith civilization of the planet Korriban, establishing a new empire. Around this time, she developed an obsession with the ancient scrolls of the Sith, particularly the power they contained. While setting out to collect such scrolls and tablets, Broodica transferred her findings into a large personal grimoire. Keeping the contents of the grimoire secure, the Dark Lord sealed the book using a self-designed lock, similar to a holocron gatekeeper.
