The Great War had ended in 3653, leaving in its wake countless lost lives and irreparable damage on numerous planets. Though the scars of war remain, the Treaty of Coruscant between the Sith Empire and the Republic had been signed.
It has been eleven long years of a high-tension standoff between the Empire and the Republic. Border skirmishes as well as proxy wars have been fought on many fronts, but for the most part peace has remained.
