The planet Tython was the site that saw the beginning of what would eventually become the Jedi Order; scholars visited the world to study the mysteries of the Force, but eventually abandoned their work when their research uncovered dark secrets that killed many and threatened to destroy the planet. The survivors of this near-cataclysm fled off-world. Tython was forgotten, and over time these scholars became the first Jedi. The planet's location remained unknown until its eventual rediscovery in the early years of the Great War. Jedi returned to Tython and began to rediscover their forgotten heritage.
When the Great War came to an end the Sith Empire destroyed the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. The Jedi Council made the decision to rebuild the Temple on Tython, and now the Order's next generation is trained among ruins that serve as a reminder of dark secrets that remain hidden to this day.
