to bombard the moon from orbit and end the threat cleanly, but the Dread Masters used their dark powers to project images into the minds of the Republic forces to spread fear, and resulted in the destruction of the task force. Supreme Chancellor Leontyne Saresh

to travel to Oricon and link up with the survivors.
Not long afterwards, the Empire also discovered the location of the Dread Masters and the fate of the Republic task force, while sending their own force under the direction of Lord Hargrev. However, much as the Republic had, the Empire lost contact with the task force - their ships destroyed by the powers of the Dread Masters. Darth Marr called on the elite operatives

Acknowledging a common enemy that both factions had failed to defeat individually, Republic and Imperial forces secured a temporary truce to fight the Dread Masters. Both sides did what they could to cripple the Dread Guard

, and her creations. The strike team encountered many of Brontes' creations and servants, including Nefra, Qor'thest, Draxus, Grob'thok, and Corruptor Zero. When the strike team successfully defeated all of these opponents Brontes faced them by herself. Like Styrak before her, she failed and was killed as a result.
After Brontes's death, the team found a portal leading to the Dread Palace, the true base of the Dread Masters, and the location of hiding for the last four. Each Master attempted to kill the strike team individually, and failed. Eventually the strike team reached the Dread Masters' throne room, where the Masters taunted the team and told them that they would die. However, they were surprised at the strength of the team, and chose to recuperate their strength. They summoned the spirits of deceased Dread Masters Styrak and Brontes to aid them in their fight. The strike team took them down easily. Realizing that they might actually die, the living Masters chose to sacrifice some of their life force in a last-ditch attempt to destroy the strike team. The strike team was taken a back, but proceeded to strike down each Dread Master one by one.
The rogue actions and horrifying plans of the Dread Masters finally ended. The galaxy's biggest threat to stability had been stopped.
The Republic strike camp received an unexpected visitor: Dread Master Calphayus

. Calphayus had survived his death for unknown reasons, even to himself. He explained that he remembered what it was like to no longer be afraid and that upon his near-death, saw light. He explained that he was no longer bound to the other Masters, as he had been previously. The Republic strike team showed mercy and spared his life, and Calphayus was taken away to be treated by the Jedi.
