From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.
The Battle of Basilisk was fought during the early days of the Great Sith War.
On the world of Basilisk, the Mandalorians began their holy crusade against the Basiliskans. Even with Republic reinforcements, the Basiliskans were outmatched and poisoned their own planet in a last ditch effort to drive away the invaders.
The Mandalorians abandoned the planet, but succeeded in capturing a large group of Basiliskans. These creatures would later become the Lagartoz War Dragons. The battle claimed the life of Jedi Master Sidrona Diath, Supreme Chancellor of the Republic.
Behind the scenes
The in-game encyclopedia entry for Basilisk in the PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly states that Sidrona Diath was killed by the Sith.
