|During the final moments of Exar Kun's reign over the Massassi on Yavin 4, hundreds or even thousands of the natives fled into the temple to escape the Republic's bombardment. Many died, either by the bombs or by Exar Kun's ritual to preserve his soul after death. Some of those beings that died at that time returned to life through the dark side of the Force and were transformed into what have become known as Sith ghouls.
Sith ghouls look more or less like they did in life, although their faces tend to have permanent expressions of either extreme horror or utter hatred. They have gray, hairless flesh and empty eye sockets.
The Sith ghouls typically attack using merely physical attacks, either unarmed or with a crude weapon that they hastily obtain. However, they have been known to gain a sudden burst of strength and use it to slam an opponent with great force. In rare instances, ghouls that were Force-sensitive in life retain that connection through the Dark Side of the Force. Force-sensitive ghouls have been seen using powers such as dark rage, Force lightning, move object, and surge. Such ghouls are extremely dangerous and hold a seething hatred of living beings, especially Jedi.
Although Sith ghouls have been sighted almost exclusively within the ruins on Yavin 4, some are rumored to roam the surface and tombs of Korriban.
