Born as a mysterious cult of grave robbers, the Bando Gora had become a skilled group of assassins and were known to be very ruthless. They ruled through fear, overtaking the Outer Rim and uncivilized worlds in the galaxy. As they spread throughout the galaxy, they gave people the option of convert or die. The power this brought to the organization gained them a growing influence in the criminal underbelly of the galaxy.
Around a decade before the beginning of the Clone Wars, the Bando Gora became too much of a threat to be ignored. The powers that be put pieces into place in hopes of destroying the Bando Gora once and for all. The leaders of the Bando Gora were struck down and the remaining members of the cult scattered. It was decades later that their name and history would be acknowledged again as a member of a Force group that focused on finding and protecting artifacts and knowledge came across a datacron that had been long forgotten.
That individual was the Force sensitive, Darin Byrch. Born in the sector that the death cult had once held under their thumb, the name "Bando Gora" was one told to young Chagrians to keep them inline. Taking the knowledge he now had of the Bando Gora, and adding the influences of the teachings he had experienced over the years, the Bando Gora was reborn with its eyes set on the galaxy.
On Day 329 of Year 20, the Bando Gora cult revealed themselves to be a Sith cult.
