"A tree grows in the close wastes, drinking deeply from this planet's corruption. Its roots cradle memories of our ancient enemy. Place the dark ones in the Cave-Under-Tree's embrace. Soon their energy will fuel our escape."
―Heart Rend[src]

Cave-Under-Tree was the name given by the Esh-kha species to a subterranean facility built by the Rakata underneath a massive zedalus tree in the Tomb, an ancient prison on the planet Belsavis. When the Esh-kha were released from their imprisonment during the invasion of Belsavis, they captured the powerful Sith Lords known as the Dread Masters, and they moved the Sith to the Cave-Under-Tree. There, the Esh-kha Heart Rend and his savants sought to harness the Dread Masters' power, but were defeated by Imperial forces that freed the Dread Masters.

Behind the scenesEdit

Cave-Under-Tree appears as a location on Belsavis in the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, and is the site of the Imperial mission "Terror in the Flesh."[1]
