The Condemned were the individuals who were descendants of prisoners on the Republic prison planet Belsavis. By order of the Republic Strategic Information Service, prisoners' descendants were not allowed to leave Belsavis, and the group became strongly opposed to the Republic under the leadership of the Kaleesh Nyranos. They attacked the Prison Administration Center during the Sith Empire's assault on Belsavis and killed Warden Playt, though his successor Warden Graal was eventually convinced to strike a deal with Nyranos and form an alliance with them in return for improved living conditions and employment by the Republic.
