When a group of shuttles arrived on Dathomir under the command of Sith LordViun Gaalan, Khai ordered for the Nightsisters to convene in a meadow. Approximately 24 Nightsisters arrived with at least 18 rancors to await the Sith's arrival. When Gaalan landed and revealed his presence, however, the Nightsisters felt betrayed—in their culture, women were superior to men, and the idea of being in league with a man disgusted them. Their leader, Dresdema called for them to attack, but they were outflanked by 7 more Sith. Their powers proved to be no match for the Sith, who quickly killed the rancors and incapacitated the Nightsisters, loading them into a shuttle and taking them to meet up with the larger Sith fleet in orbit over Dathomir. Although many of the Nightsisters still resisted, the Sith planned to break their will and turn them into Sith.
