Kesh was a remote planet located in Wild Space. It was the homeworld of the Near-Human Keshiri species. The planet was mountainous and covered mostly in sand, with at least one major ocean. The surface of the planet was composed of three continents: Keshtah, on which the Lost Tribe of Sith laid the groundwork for its planetary domination, Alanciar, which was the largest land mass of the planet and Eshkrene, which was at the South Pole.
In 5,000 BBY a Sith starship, the Omen, crashed onto the planet, and the stranded survivors formed the Lost Tribe of Sith. The Keshiri believed that the Sith were their gods, the Skyborn, and gave themselves over to lives of service to the Tribe.
Kesh was a remote planet located in Wild Space. It was a mountainous planet, holding at least one major range, the Takara Mountains—originally called the Cetajan Mountains. This range of mountains bordered a large ocean. The ocean lay next to a beach of lavander colored sand.
At some point after the Hundred-Year Darkness, Sith Lord Remulus Dreypa led a invasion force to seek revenge on the Jedi and the Republic which defeated them previously. After they left the Stygian Caldera, they came across a Jedi force on patrol to protect the Republic from the Exiles should they return. After a chase across the galaxy, the two forces crash landed on Kesh, where the Jedi and their former brethren and their legions clashed, wreaking enormous damage on the world, to the point that the Jedi and Sith eventually declared a truce and imprisoned Dreypa. The former Sith and Jedi then settled in Eshkrene and became the secret organization known as The Doomed, watching over both Kesh and the imprisoned Dreypa.
In 5,000 BBY, during the Great Hyperspace War, Omen, a Sith starship carrying Lignan crystals crashed on this mountainous planet. Though it was not technologically advanced, the survivors of the crash established a community known as the Lost Tribe of Sith, and over millennia they grew into an order of substantial number.
In 41.5 ABY, the inhabitants of Kesh regained space travel for the first time in over five thousand years, when a Sith Meditation Sphere known as Ship arrived on Kesh. The tribe spent the next two years capturing ships and creating a Sith armada.
Two years later, the fleet contained several dozen ships, including the rebuilt Omen. After sensing the presence of exiled Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker through the force, a strike team was put together to hunt down and kill Skywalker. It was also at this time that Ship left Kesh.
The Takara Mountains were a non-volcanic mountain range that bordered one of Kesh's oceans. Inside the mountains was a Sith Temple, built by the Lost Tribe of Sith. The mountains were very steep, and the Temple was accessible only by air or a hazardous climb up the slopes.
The Sith Temple was the Temple of the Lost Tribe of Sith, built over the crash site of the Omen. The temple's architecture consisted of simple black spires and towers. Several statues were located on balconies and in the Temple courtyard.
Tahv was the capital city of Kesh. Built around 5,000 BBY by the Keshiri, Tahv's original purpose was to keep the Keshiri safe from dangerous creatures. After the Lost Tribe of Sith helped the Keshiri either drive away or domesticate Kesh's native beasts, Tahv became a decorative city, focusing mainly on workings of art, often created by Sith artists using the Force.
