Ellora, such a tumultuous planet. Nestled in the depths of the unknown regions of sector space, a world that throughout the annuls of time had once been a seat of an Ancient Jedi Temple, later laid waste to, by the Sith. A sequence of events that seemed to repeat itself over the centuries and millennia as if it were as nothing more than waves crashing into the shore and then retreating over and over again. Much like the constant crashing of the waves, the original light of the Ancient Jedi world had been ravaged by time, eroded away by countless centuries of the consuming corruption of the Darkside seeping further into the world's essence with each passing swelling of the tide.
The planet had long since reverted back to its dark, desolate state, ridden with continuous lighting storms, that would blacken the skies with its thick clouds, the only light to touch the planet's surface, being the bright flashes of arching electricity that thunderously cascaded along the cloud line. The Air was thick with the corruption of the Darkside, the local fauna and flora twisted into predatory and poisonous states. However despite how far reaching the influence of the Darkside can be on a planet, there was always the risk that the Jedi and their irritating knack to 'redeem and heal' worlds - may one day occur on this world, Something that the Sith Lord intended on preventing by ensuring that should the Jedi were ever to return to this world, they would suffer for their trespass.
The Sith Order was now widely out in the open and gradually increasing its sphere of influence in the worlds surrounding Moraband, Sullust and Eriadu, resulting from the driving campaigns lead by her fellow Darths. Darth Ceryx however had set her sights to worlds beyond the sight of the rest of the Galaxy, having already established her control over Bakura, a remote and backwater world that stood as the gateway between the Outer Rim and the Unknown Regions. The Sith lord saw only to expand the planetary influence of Bakura and its neighbouring planets, establishing a loose alliance of planets that in the public eye would look little more than sectorial partnerships between worlds supporting each other - under the guise of her capacity as a Politician, however as the shadowed persona of the Sith Lord, Ceryx would seek to restore the Sith's reach and foothold within the Unknown regions once again.
Making use of the Order's assets available to her, the Sith Lord had taken control of a small expeditionary Force to venture out into the Unknown regions, headed towards Ellora. As a matter of respect and curtesy, Ceryx had informed the Dark Council Member @Darth Malicia of her intentions as well as extending an open invitation to her fellow Lords, providing them with a message with the coordinates, her plans and an invite to help her claim this world and bend it to their will. Those who would choose to make the journey, was however unknown. Though the word was out and even if none of the other Sith Lords had the capacity to join her, any and all Sith were welcome to follow her to help claim a foothold in the unknown regions.
Stepping down the loading ramp, the Sith lord made her way towards where the ranks of Legionary soldiers were massing, along with the few handfuls of Acolytes and Marauders she had taken into her command, as well as any others of the Sith ranks that wished to join on this venture. Her mind opening into the Force and allowing for the raw potent strength of the dark side to run through her, savouring for a moment the violent power that resonated across the world with each lightning strike that ripped across the skies above. Her eyes, narrowing as they phased into a milky white hue set upon the distant flickering lights of what from the scans had indicated to be one of the few remaining settlements on this world ahead of them.
Lowering her hand to her side Ceryx wrapped her fingers around the hilt of her lightsaber. "Lay the settlements to waste. If they bend the knee cease your attack. If they choose to resist, then they are of no use to us. Slaughter them until they finally choose to yield" The Sith lord instructed, as she turned her gaze over the amassed ranks around her. Before stepping forwards and leading the way towards the settlement.
