The Righteous was a Venator-class Star Destroyer used by the Galactic Republic. Prior to the Battle of Christophsis in 22 BBY during the Clone Wars, The Righteous was destroyed by the Separatist Admiral Trench. After Jedi General Anakin Skywalker's task force retreated from combat above the planet, Republic Admiral Wullf Yularen researched on the tactics of Admiral Trench, who at the time, was not known to have participated in the battle by the Republic. During his research, Admiral Yularen came across The Righteous and the Republic frigate Swift Return, both having been destroyed and both showing Trench's insignia, which Yularen recognized, allowing him to discover that they had fought against his old adversary.
