Despite his success, many in the Sith Empire thought he was mad due to his obsession with meditation.

Near the end of the Jedi Civil War, Darth Glovoc had a powerful vision. 

In this vision, he saw a distant planet covered in dark clouds and lightning. 

Believing this vision was a message from the dark side of the Force, Glovoc became determined to find this mysterious world. 

He left his duties and set off on a journey to discover the planet from his vision, convinced it held the key to the Sith’s ultimate victory.

Glovoc’s search led him to the planet Nyriaan

This planet matched the one in his vision, with thick, dark clouds and frequent lightning storms. As he and his crew arrived, they were attacked by Republic forces.

A fierce battle ensued, and Glovoc’s ship, the Dying Sun, was severely damaged. The ship crash-landed on Nyriaan, and Glovoc and his followers were stranded.

On Nyriaan, Glovoc and his followers struggled to survive.

The harsh environment and constant storms made life difficult. 

Glovoc took on the role of a harsh but effective leader, guiding his followers through the challenges they faced. 

Over time, his dark influence twisted his followers both physically and mentally. 

In order to prolong his life, Darth Glovoc used an ancient Sith technique to enter stasis inside an oubliette

He would awaken every hundred years to check on his followers, who began to worship him as a god. 

His presence became legendary among his people, who called themselves the Children of the Tempest. They believed he was the “Dying Sun,” a god who would one day lead them to greatness.

In 132 ABY, under the rule of Galactic Emperor Darth Krayt, agents of his One Sith discovered rumors about the final destination of the Dying Sun. Eager to find Sith artifacts, especially those from the era of Darth Revan, Krayt sent Darth Vurik to investigate Nyriaan. Using his master’s intel, Vurik found a Sith settlement populated by the inbred descendants of Glovoc’s followers. These settlers defended Glovoc’s resting place with their lives.

Vurik, despite eliminating several of Glovoc’s protectors, was thwarted by fugitive Jedi on Nyriaan. In the resulting skirmish, Vurik managed to wound several Jedi and kill one, but was forced to retreat. The settlers quickly moved Glovoc’s oubliette to a new location. Ashamed of his failure, Vurik decided to withhold his report from his master, hoping that bounty hunters could help him eliminate the Jedi and finally locate Glovoc.
