When the Sith ship Omen
crash-landed on Kesh two thousand years ago, the crew
encountered native barbarism and superstition. Now a
violent millennium has reduced the Lost Tribe of the
Sith to a similar state. While Sith teachings are
remembered, honored, and violently practiced, knowledge
of the Lost Tribe's true origins has all but vanished.
With a dark age imperiling the Sith, the future rests in
the hands of the unlikeliest of people: Caretaker Hilts,
the official keeper of lore. Mild-mannered by Sith
standards, the aged Hilts hopes to use the wisdom of the
ancients to reunite his people. But the truth he
uncovers becomes anything but the Tribe's salvation.
Rather, he may have set loose forces leading to its
destruction and his own.
