The Dark Path was a Sith philosophy followed by the Sith Lord Vacuus and his followers. The adherents of the Dark Path waged war on the Sith Lord Pharshol within the Dark Temple on Dromund Kaas, killing many of the early colonists. Thousands of years after the deaths of Pharshol and Vacuus, the spirits of the Dark Path adherents possessed workers and soldiers within the Dark Temple and began living out their lives once again, attacking those who were possessed by Pharshol and his followers.
