The Jedi intervene

The Republic begged the Jedi Council to enter the war; however, the Jedi were slow to act. The Council believed that the true threat had yet to reveal itself, and thus refused to assist the Republic and forbade its members to go to war. Two young Jedi Knights, Revan and Malak, decided to take action, calling for support from the ranks of Jedi who considered the Council to be making a mistake. Many Jedi Knights answered this call to follow the ingenious, charismatic Revan. Some of these Jedi were Xaset Tarep, Arren Kae, Nisotsa, Talvan Esan, Cariaga Si, and the famous Jedi Exile. The Republic eagerly accepted this support, and so the war 'truly' began. The Jedi members who joined Revan and Malak in the war became generals and led Republic armies to fight the Mandalorians with the help of Republic soldiers such as General Derred, Mon Halan and Admiral Saul Karath, who later betrayed the Republic, following Revan and Malak in their fall. Revan proved to be an excellent tactician, willing to make sacrifices to bring greater victories and was able to almost always outmaneuver the Mandalorians both on the ground and in space. Republic forces took incredible casualties throughout the war, in many cases losing as many as ten to twenty soldiers for every Mandalorian at the battle of Dxun, but the leadership of the Jedi managed to carry them through victory after victory, pushing the Mandalorians back to Yavin, across Korriban, out of Dxun and Onderon.

The war ended at Malachor V. The Jedi Exile led the Republic assault on the Mandalorian fleet in orbit over Malachor V, bringing an end to the war. Revan had sent a massive fleet of Republic soldiers and Jedi whose loyalty was in question. Unknown to the Mandalorians, and to a large extent most of the Republic soldiers, the Republic had hidden a weapon known as a "Mass Shadow Generator," designed by Zabrak engineer Bao-Dur on the planet. Overseeing its use was the Jedi Exile, one of the Jedi who followed Revan to war and became one the Republic's top Generals. The Exile gave the command to Bao-Dur to activate the weapon, and in doing so, watched as the Mandalorian and Republic fleets alike were destroyed, crashing into and nearly destroying the entire planet.

Aftermath

Few from either fleet survived this final battle. It marked Revan's final move before truly falling to the dark side. This terrible act of destruction resulted in Jedi Exile losing connection with the Force, thus causing a hole within the Force. The Exile was the only one of Revan's followers to turn from the dark side, returning to the Jedi Council on Coruscant. The Council exiled this Jedi for following Revan to war, but their true reasons were quite different. They feared the hole in the Force they felt in this person, and furthermore feared the failings in the Jedi teachings that this fallen Jedi represented. The Exile defiantly stabbed the lightsaber into the centerstone of the Jedi Council as the Council demanded this Jedi to relinquish it, as if the saber represented the failing of their teachings. The Exile then left for the outer rim. The Force is a binding, ubiquitous power that is the object of the Jedi and Sith monastic orders in the Star Wars universe. ...


On the surface of Malachor V, Revan found the ancient Trayus Academy, a former Sith stronghold deeply marked with the dark side. The Jedi was corrupted by the Sith teachings. Revan and Malak were hailed as heroes within the Republic. Revan left along with a third of the Republic fleet, reportedly to pursue the final remains of the Mandalorian fleet, but in truth searching for the ancient Star Forge.
