The spiritual home of the Sith, Korriban is the home of the Sith Academy and the tombs of the Ancient Sith Lords within the Valley of the Dark Lords. A nexus of the Dark Side itself, it is considered one of the most influential planets of the entire Sith Empire.
The Academy is a towering pyramidal structure established at the back wall of the Valley of the Dark Lords, though the exact date of the Academy's founding is lost to history. The Sith Academy is a facility dedicated to training Force Sensitives in the ways and traditions of the Sith.
Home to some of the oldest Sith Monuments, the Valley of the Dark Lords is a burial ground for the most powerful Sith Lords in history. Steeped heavily in the Dark Side, the Valley was known for the intoxicating effect that it had on visitors, along with its many large Tombs still being found and excavated for historical, and powerful Sith artifacts.
Its unofficial capital, Dreshdae is one of the only habitable settlements on Korriban, other than the Sith Academy. A haven of illegal and criminal activities, trade, transport docking, smuggling runs, erotic entertainment, hangouts for bounty hunters, mercenaries, assassins, and Sith trainees from the Sith Academy nearby.
