Although the Knights of the Old Republic series is still active via the current MMO, all material from the series has been labeled Legends material and is no longer considered part of the canon. Because of this, the Old Republic era has been left largely unexplored. However, we have been receiving bits of information on an occasional basis. As such, I figured it would be very useful if we created a single list of information of everything we know about this era thus far. This could be a useful place to visit (a general hub of information) when writing or editing canon articles set in this era, especially with rumours regarding an Old Republic television series currently circulating.

Darth Bane is canon, though his physical appearance has been largely redesigned for the new canon. He was the sole survivor of the destruction of the Sith at the hands of the Jedi. Believing that the Sith in-fighting was the cause of their destruction, he created the Rule of Two. He died approximately 1,000 years before the Clone Wars, presumably around the time of the end of the Old Republic. His corpse rested on Moraband. It is unknown who his apprentice was.
Malachor V is now Malachor. On Malachor was an ancient superweapon that could be activated by a Sith holocron. A massive Sith temple was built on Malachor. The temple was the location of battle known as the Great Scourge of Malachor. In said battle, the Jedi assaulted the temple, but the superweapon was activated, killing everyone present (Jedi and Sith alike). The temple was built by an ancient and very powerful unidentified female Sith Lord, whom Dave Filoni has written a short history about. It was her voice in Ezra Bridger's Sith holocron.
The Amaxine warriors were allegedly a warrior people that refused to make peace with the Old Republic (or possibly an earlier Galactic Republic). They traded weapons for goods and services. Since they were unable to defeat the Old Republic, they left the known galaxy in search of a new opponent. By the time of Leia Organa's childhood, they became the subject of legend (literal legend, not Legends). During the time period between Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a group claiming to be the Amaxine warriors surfaced but were seemingly destroyed.
Hi DarkKnight2149, thank you very much for taking the time and effort to collate all this information on the Old Republic for the new Disney Canon. I just added references in order to enhance the quality of this article. Some people might not be so familiar with the sources. As more information on the Old Republic comes out in the new Canon, we could update this article. Hopefully, Revan, Darth Malak, Bastila Shan, Meetra Surik, and other elements from this period filter their way back into Canon. Thank you for this effort. May the Force be with you.

Agreed: thank you, Darkknight, for all your work. However, we need to be careful with statements such as in your second bullet above, both in transcribing them carefully and in what we read into them. Specifically, Obi-Wan mentions only the Old Republic, nothing about the Galactic Republic, giving the impression the Old Republic stood continuously for a thousand generations (reasonably at least 15,000 years) until the Empire replaced it. But we also have only Obi-Wan's word for this, and — as he demonstrates in his next couple sentences to Luke — he's willing to play fast and loose with the facts when it suits his purposes.

I appreciate the help and input. Asithol, when Obi Wan mentioned "before the Empire", I think we was including the Galactic Republic in that statement. I understand the point you are making, with him playing with the facts but, to my knowledge, I think it was common knowledge in the galaxy that the Empire rose from the Galactic Republic. Regardless, maintaining caution when making direct statements is almost always a good idea, so I will keep that in mind. DarkKnight2149 04:22, November 25, 2016 (UTC)
There's another reference to the Old Republic that you might find useful. In Citadel Rescue, there's a throwaway line by I think Saesee Tiin (maybe Plo Koon) about how the eponymous rescue mission to Citadel Station reminded him of the ancient battles in the days of the Old Republic (I would need to rewatch to see if there was additional context, like whether these were battles against the Sith). It's not much, but you're trying to be comprehensive so I thought it might be useful. Taral, Dark Lord of the Sith-Just shy, not antisocial: You can talk to me!- 15:13, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
This may indeed be useful information. I haven't seen the episode though, so more context would probably be needed for me to add it. DarkKnight2149 21:06, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
