Darth Zavakon was a Umbaran male Sith Lord who served as one of the first members of the True Sith Empire's ruling Dark Council. As head of the Sphere of Ancient Knowledge, Zavakon was responsible for the establishment of the Imperial Reclamation Service.
A male Darth Zavakon was a Sith Lord who lived in the early years of the reconstituted Sith Empire. In 4999 BBY, Zavakon departed the planet Korriban with the rest of the surviving Sith in order to escape the Galactic Republic after the Old Sith Empire's defeat in the Great Hyperspace War, and it was not until 4980 BBY that the Sith exodus came to an end at Dromund Kaas. There, Emperor Vitiate established a new Empire, and Zavakon was chosen as one of the twelve Dark Lords of the Sith who formed the Empire's ruling Dark Council. Taking on the recovery and study of ancient knowledge as his sphere of influence, Zavakon came to realize that the Empire was suffering because of his fellow Sith's unwillingness to share knowledge. As a result, he dispatched a team of archaeologists and military officers to investigate ruins that other Sith had already surveyed. The significant discoveries made by Zavakon's team led the Dark Council to authorize the formation of the Imperial Reclamation Service, a military organization devoted to preserving knowledge.
