As part of his plan, Sadow and his warriors kill a number of Massassi guards, as well as the Sith Lord Simus.Planting an acquired Republic blaster at the scene of Simus's murder, Sadow effectively sows the seeds needed so that the other Sith Lords would believe that the Republic is responsible for the both the Daragons' escape and the various murders that had taken place.The remaining two story arcs, The Golden Age of the Sith and The Fall of the Sith Empire, occur in the year 5000 BBY and revolve around Sith Lord Naga Sadow and his schemes to invade Republic space through his manipulation of the Daragon siblings, Gav and Jori.
Following their "escape" from the Ziost prison, Gav and Jori are sent to Sadow's personal stronghold on the moon of Khar Shian.
Meanwhile, Sadow, along with all other Sith Lords, is summoned to Ziost for an emergency meeting to discuss the missing prisoners, and the murders that had occurred.
After a long debate between those present, it is decided that the potential threat that Gav and Jori represent is too great, and that they are to be executed to prevent them from letting the Republic learn of the Sith.
However, believing that Gav and Jori Daragon possess the key he needs to expand the Sith Empire, Naga Sadow sends one of his Massassi warriors to retrieve the prisoners' weapons from the Starbreaker 12, developing a plan through which he would gain control using lies and deception.
Stealing the impounded Starbreaker 12 from its berth at Aarrba's Repair Dock, they plot a completely random set of hyperspace coordinates to escape the authorities, jumping to parts unknown.
Eventually, the Daragon siblings' random jump lands them in orbit around the planet of Korriban, where a funeral procession is being held for Marka Ragnos, Dark Lord of the Sith.
It's so far back in the past, that there is no reason to fear that any story we tell could interfere with core continuity." Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, abbreviated as Tot J, is a comic book series covering eight story arcs, all published by Dark Horse Comics.
Set during the Old Republic era, six of the eight Tales of the Jedi story arcs take place during the time surrounding the events known collectively as the Great Sith War, a conflict instigated by Sith forces aimed at galactic domination.
These six story arcs nominally focus on the Jedi Knight-turned-Sith Lord Ulic Qel-Droma; his love interest, Nomi Sunrider; and a cast of supporting characters, including Ulic's own brother, Cay Qel-Droma.
