EDIT: I guess my question is about Malcore, when was that Sith temple constructed there? Just like with Dromund Kass I know the Old Sith Empire had a habit of collapsing in on it self a few times and fringe colonies being left to rot and forgotten about.
I'll give this one a go. The Trayus Academy was probably constructed by the ancient Sith Empire, being the Empire who challenged the Republic during the Great Hyperspace War, and abandoned after the war ended. After that is was probably rediscovered during Vitiate's exodus in search of Dromund Kaas and became a part of the new Sith Empire. Between that point and the Mandalorian Wars it was abandoned for a unknown reason.

Many Sith were strong in The Force. Adas weeded out the weak so only the strong ruled.

The Sith'Ari is the Dark version of The Chosen One. A Sith that would destroy the Sith and recreate them stronger than before. Adas was the original Sith'Ari, the chosen being. He was considered perfect (a prerequisite for the Sith'Ari), but this was before the prophecy of the Sith'Ari. After Adas died the priests prophesised of a new Sith'Ari that would destroy the Sith and recreate them stronger than before. Darth Bane was that Sith. Bane was the true Sith'Ari, Adas was a prototype so to speak.

PS. Does anyone know what Sith'Ari means in the Sith language?
IIRC Bane didn't consider himself the Sith'ari. He simply decided to make himself the Sith'ari.

I think what we see here is simply a change of meaning of the word. Sith'ari originally meant something different in King Adas time than it did later. Just like the word messiah originally simply referred to a king (who was made king by being anointed). Was Adas the first Sith'ari or could it be that there have been others before him?

I've read somewhere that, translated literally, Sith'ari means "perfect being".

P.S. Darth Ikoral can trace his line back to King Adas. Given the amount of time, though, it is not unlikely that almost every Sith Pureblood is somehow related to King Adas.

It has been confirmed that Darth Bane was the prophesised Sith'Ari, but I forget who confirmed it. Either way, he did fulfill the prophesy. He destroyed the Sith and made them anew, stronger than before.

Back at Adas' time, Sith'Ari simply meant 'perfect being', 'Overlord', or just 'Lord'. Adas was the first Sith'Ari in that he was the perfect being and King of the Sith. It wasn't until after his death that Sith priests foresaw a new Sith'Ari. Ironically, that prophesy led to several civil wars that would scatter the remnants of Adas' Sith Empire.

I would say that quite a few Sith could trace their ancestory back to Adas. However, that line has been tainted by the Exiles and other Sith Empire's. Very few Sith in Vitiate's Empire are fully pureblooded. Though I woudn't be surprised that Vitiate could trace his ancestory back to Adas.

Edit: Bane being the Sith'Ari of prophecy was confirmed in the Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia. Darth Revan was also a chosen candidate for the title, as well as Sidious and Vader. But Bane is the true Sith'Ari.

Ah well that would explain its design then, which looks more like an older version of the design styles we have seen in this new Empire, than it does like a newer version of the old sith designs styles. And somehow Revan and Malak found it then during the mandalorian wars.
