Exar Kun was a powerful padawan in the days of the old Republic. His curiosity of the dark side of the Force eventually led him to the planet Korriban, homeworld of the ancient Sith. There, he submitted to the dark side of the Force.
After accepting the dark side of the Force, Exar Kun went to Yavin-4 where he discovered a tribe of Massassi creatures, direct descendants of the ancient Sith. The Massassi where brought there by Naga Sadow, a Sith outcast. He then found Naga Sadow's ship in an old temple and studied his teachings which were considered heretic by the ancient Sith.
With his new knowledge of the Force, Exar Kun seeked out Ulic Qel Droma with whom he tried to take over the Republic, sparking the events known as the Sith War. Their campaign failed and Exar Kun was left alone. To avoid trial or certain death, he hid himself within the walls of the Massassi temple on Yavin-4, using a dark side trick, and stayed there for thousands of years.
