STAR WARS: Abandoned Heroes
Treaty of Coruscant
“…the singular defining event of recent years—the unprecedented peace agreement between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic, the Treaty of Coruscant.”
―Jedi Master Gnost-Dural
What is it?
The Treaty of Coruscant is the peace agreement that will bring an end to the Great Galactic War in 3,653 BBY. The Galactic Republic has been strongarmed into the treaty following the twenty-eight year conflict with Sith Empire that saw the galactic government crumble under the pressures of war and economic struggles. The concept of a cessation of hostilities between the Republic and Empire was first proposed by the Sith Dark Council, under the leadership of the Sith Emperor, the details of which are still being finalized.
Although wary of possible ulterior motives, the Republic’s Galactic Senate will be forced to accept the offer out of desperation. The two governments have talked, and organized a summit to take place on the Core World of Alderaan, where delegations from both factions will meet to deliberate the terms of peace.
How will it do that?
The treaty would divide the galaxy in two, and demanded that all Republic forces and Jedi withdraw from open conflict with the Empire and that the Senate cede a number of outlying worlds to the Sith.
That dosen’t seem too forceful for a wartorn race who were exiled from the known Galaxy because of their religeon, surely there is more to it?
Undoubtedly. In fact the Dark Council expect such opposition to the treaty will led to the initiation of a new galactic cold war fought between the Republic and Empire both directly and by proxy. However now, the Sith will have solidified their ownership of sections of galaxy.
Give a Sith an inch, and they’ll take your universe.
Little did they know the treaty would be so significant that the Galactic Senate adopted the date of its signing as a new dating standard.
