Lost Tribe of the Sith answers that question. Spanning millennia, this series of short stories introduces the original unlikely castaways -- and shows how their society was shaped.
This edition contains all eight short stories plus a large new Lost Tribe novella, Pandemonium, bringing the package to more than 400 pages. Only available in this print and digital edition, Pandemonium follows the Tribe into a new era of deviousness and destruction!

Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #1: Precipice
Here come the Sith - A Sith ship (the Omen) crashes and the kindly sweet Sith emerge to teach the locals how to get along in peace and kindness. Actually, the Sith are nice at first.
This "Lost Tribe of the Sith" episode gives a nice view of how the Sith under Naga Sadow thought and acted. It is also interesting in that it details some of the interplay between the human and Sith races. Overall, this is the tale of arrival and setting up to take control of a new planet.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #2: Skyborn
Meet the Natives - The Sith arrived and set up camp in the previous episode (Precipice), now it's time to say hello to the neighbors.
A local woman introduces the Sith to the local powers that be who are, essentially, dragon riders and the top caste of Kesh society. It turns out they worship deities called the "Skyborne" (opportunity knocks). The Sith form social alliances with various locals to both protect themselves from the far larger local population and to gather some local power. The Sith are also busily trying to gather resources to fix their ship and get back to the war.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #3: Paragon
Meet the New Boss - In this episode, the Sith have take over Kesh and have mostly given up on ever leaving. It is the effort to fix the ship, however, that had them cooperating so well with each other. Now they are indulging their normal tendencies to fight one another and decide just who is the new boss of Kesh. As long as it isn't a Kesheri (Kesh native), of course.
It's nice that the eugenics program is making the Sith so easy to look at, and a lot less red.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #4: Savior
The Locals Strike Back - The Sith have taken over. Most of the Kesh locals now believe that the Sith actually are the "Skyborn" deities and should be prayed to. The Sith, meanwhile, have figured out they aren't going to be leaving anytime soon.
As this episode progresses, some locals recognize the Sith for what they are and try to undermine them. Interestingly, the local Kesh use Sith-style deceit to advance their cause. Maybe they've learned to well from their new masters? Good luck with deceiving the Sith.
Side note - the tension finally disappears between the human race and Sith race. It's all part of a eugenics program.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #5: Purgatory
Let the in-fighting continue - The earlier episodes of this series detailed the Sith taking over the planet. In this episode, they've ruled Kesh for a thousand years. Things are a bit different. For one thing, the original Sith shipwreck contained a bunch of relatively weak and untrained Sith. They were soldiers and sailors, not Lords. No one was even close to being a Sith lord.
Now things are different. The Sith don't seem all that stronger in the Force, but they've grown into their mantel of power. In other words, they are a bunch of scheming psychopaths but force choking isn't a big thing.
Into all that, an oddly serene dirt farmer catches a young Sith's attention
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #6: Sentinel
There are two sides to the force - This installment follows immediately from the fifth (Purgatory). It turns out that it's pretty hard to completely deceive a Sith who has risen to rule an entire continent. It's much easier to blow them up with a little republic ship.
Meanwhile, an ex-Jedi (not fallen, just separated) and a Sith hook up and tune out.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #7: Pantheon
Dust to Dust - The first few episodes of this series covered the rise of the ship wrecked Sith to rule Kesh. The next couple episodes cover events a thousand years later when the Sith run the place and are at the top of their game. With this seventh installment, another thousand years have passed. The original shipwreck crew have become mythical beings and the nearly complete lack of natural resources on Kesh has brought the Sith low as they no longer reach for the stars or understand their own birthright.
In other words, it's kind of like the dark ages in Europe with less opportunity for reprieve. Meanwhile, a scholar tries to tie things together, keep the peace, and preserve what heritage remains. It isn't an easy task with either barbarians or with Sith. Sith barbarians are even nastier to deal with.
Another chunk of interest is how wrecked everything is from lack of care.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #8: Secrets
Losing their religion - The Sith have completely lost faith in having any reason to cooperate. The last one standing is the winner. The Sith have pretty much decided to wreck the place and kill whoever is available for killing. That and maybe it's time to finish off the old abandoned temple.
Meanwhile, that scholar heads back to the Omen to discover some secret knowledge. What he finds is a map. A camera on the Omen had survived the crash and had also recorded images of Kesh as the Omen headed in.
The Sith decide to curb their murderous rampage return to that old school style of treachery and assassination.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #8: Pandemonium
Let's do it, do it, do it again - It turns out that the Omen had crashed into about the worst place on Kesh. It's a continent of pretty much dirt and Keshiri. No decent metals and there isn't even good enough wood to go sailing and looking for more stuff to take over. It left the Sith with little to do but breed and in-fight for a few millenia.
But... in the previous story "Secrets", they turned up a map showing a second and much nicer continent and decide to head on over for a little how-do-you-do (conquest). A Sith Lord (Sithepher Columbus?) and friends make their way to that bigger and more resource rich continent that is full of unconquered Kesheri. In the negative column, all those unconquered Kesheri know about the Sith, really hate them, and have been preparing. What's a Dark Lord to do? Infiltrate, of course. After all, love and hate are different sides of the same coin.
