Ziost was a world made up entirely of an ancient dark forest. Not only was it a focal point of the dark side, but it was homeworld of the Sith species.
In 6,900 BBY, Dark Jedi fleeing the Battle of Corbos came to Ziost and subjugated the Sith species. Ziost became the capital of the ancient Sith Empire before the failures of Naga Sadow during the Great Hyperspace War. The Republic and Jedi cleansed the world in an act of genocide against the Sith species.
Ziost's existence was largely forgotten after the Battle of Ruusan, due to the secrecy of the Darth Bane's Sith Order. Many ancient and evil secrets remained on this place of great dark power.
In 1 ABY, after being roused on Yavin 4 by the Alliance, the mutated Massassi Kalgrath came to Ziost hoping to find his people. He was disappointed. He found only a frozen waste.
In 4 ABY, Lumiya created her lightwhip using technology she found on Ziost. Following the Battle of Endor, she apparently trained her apprentices--first Flint and then Carnor Jax--on Ziost (or possibly nearby Korriban).
In 13 ABY, the Jedi scholar Tionne set out to find Kalgrath. She traced his trail as far as Ziost, but there it disappeared.
The last known individual to visit Ziost was then-bounty hunter Zekk, whom ran into Ailyn Vel (alias "Boba Fett") on the planet while the rival bounty hunters were searching for Bornan Thul.
