Background: Moraband, known in antiquity as Korriban, was an Outer Rim planet that was home to the ancient Sith. The desolate and mountainous world was abandoned after many ancient wars. The Valley of the Dark Lords on the planet’s surface was the final resting place of Darth Bane, the Sith Lord who created the Rule of Two. During the Clone Wars, Yoda ventured to the abandoned world as part of his journey to discover the secrets of eternal consciousness.

Moraband once had a fertile habitat, much like Exegol, Ziost, and Asog, though the worlds fell to the dominion of the Sith and Moraband was left an abandoned wasteland after their many wars. Despite this, its existence was never forgotten by the Sith. Darth Bane, who created the Rule of Two a millennium before the rise of the Galactic Empire, was the last Sith Lord to be buried at Moraband’s Valley of the Dark Lords.

During the Clone Wars, Yoda was sent to Moraband by the Force Priestesses as part of his journey to discover the secrets of eternal consciousness. Once there, he encountered a number of Sith spirits, including that of Darth Bane himself. As he ventured further into the Valley of the Dark Lords, he encountered visions created by Darth Sidious, the reigning Dark Lord of the Sith who attempted to corrupt Yoda to help win the Clone Wars. The plan failed, and Yoda left Moraband behind. During one of his first visits to Moraband, Sidious discovered and stole a huge Sith holocron, which he later stored in his secret lair in the Grand Republic Medical Facility.

Some time after the end of the Galactic Civil War, Luke Skywalker traveled to Moraband to investigate about the Force.
