Following the end of the Jedi Civil War and Darth Malak's death at the hands of the redeemed Revan, Glovoc abandoned the Sith to seek out the planet Nyriaan based on a vision he had experienced during his meditation. However, upon their arrival at the distant planet, Glovoc's forces were attacked by a Republic strike force. In the ensuing battle, Glovoc's flagship, the Dying Sun, was badly damaged and crash-landed on Nyriaan. Glovoc and several crewmembers survived but were stranded on the planet.
The Sith Lord placed himself in stasis inside an oubliette, and awakened roughly every hundred years to take stock of his people. Over the years the remaining Sith survivors eked out an existence on Nyriaan, and came to worship Glovoc's imprisoned form as their god. In 132 ABY, Galactic Emperor Darth Krayt heard rumors of the Dying Sun's final resting place and dispatched an agent to investigate Nyriaan; after the Sith descendants' encounter with him, they decided to move Glovoc's sleeping form to a more secluded location.
