"We may take some small guidance from the past lords of the Dark Jedi, but we do not heed all their words. A perfect balance between Dark and Light...with a little more Light than Dark, for if Darkness is given equal footing with Light it will always strive to swallow its bright neighbor. Always keep the Light in dominion over the Dark, but do not ignore the Dark entirely. That is our code. That is what makes us more powerful than Jedi and Sith. Knowledge, however, young one, is greater than power. Remember that." -An Iridonian Exile to a younger Twi'lek, shortly before the Battle of Christophsis.

The Jedi Exiles were a splinter group of Jedi who left the stricter, orthodox New Jedi Order and settled the Enclave on Dantooine.

The following civil war between the Jedi and the Exiles resulted in a Shadow in the Force and the beginning of the Remnant Era in 296 ABY.
