So we know in Legends the old republic formed around 25,000 BBY or so. We also know there was this vague war or series of wars that preceded its formation called the unification wars. We know the Jedi participated in this war and there was an infamous warlord by the name of Zakrinand Minus. We also know interestingly enough the Bendu monks participated as well and the republic seemed to be formed immediately after this war. My question or rather opening point in what I hope will be a good discussion is what were these wars about? Who fought in them? How did they influence the formation of the republic and the politics of the core? How might this conflict have influenced notions of human supremacy? How did this conflict influence the Jedi and their relationship with the republic? Thoughts? Ideas?
