A group inhabited the planet Gap Nine centuries before the reign of the Galactic Empire. The group established a number of temples throughout Gap Nine, of which were dedicated to the worship of some reputably malevolent force. These exploits were thwarted, however, due to the intervention of the Jedi Order, who defeated the group and converted their temples into storehouses of knowledge.
