  1. chapter 24: Luke and Ben emerge from the caverns to an anxious Tadar’Ro. Luke tells him they are finished, but will only speak to the Aing-Tii as a group. Tadar’Ro quickly leads them back to the Jade Shadow where dozens are already waiting. Luke thanks them for helping him in his question to learn more about Jacen’s journeys, as well as for the insights they’ve gleaned into the life of Jorj Car’das and about the Aing-Tii philosophy itself. He tells them that he and Ben have handled every object and have found nothing that has given them any idea that there is something the Aing-Ti
  2. chapter 23: After several hours, Luke and Ben haven’t accomplished much. Some of the relics are bits of technology; some look like they could be important; some don’t. If they could analyze these at the Temple, there’s so much they could learn about other cultures. Luke tries to be open-minded about the beliefs of others, but it’s hard to look past the notion that keeping all of this stuff sitting in a cave somewhere is wasteful. There are powerful items here; none of them jump out as if to tell them what do have the Aing-Tii do. Luke suggests they keep searching. Such a relic m
  3. chapter 22: Luke regrets that the distance between he and Ben has been renewed over this flow-walking issue. It doesn’t surprise him that dreams of being attacked invade his sleep until he realizes he’s not dreaming. An Aing-Tii has gotten into his room and quickly tries to deflect Luke’s blow using a metal stick. He disappears almost as soon as he arrived. Ben emerges, wondering who that was and why they were attacked. Luke can’t get a specific sense of who that being was. Being Force-users, it’s not surprising they would be able to get past locks even though they rarely use th
  4. chapter 21: Hamner assures Daala that he knew nothing about this. Leia explains that she and some of the others did. She believes that it’s in the best interests of everyone to have the Jedi suffering from this disease to be conscious so they can be examined by other Jedi. Daala interrupts to point out that this is exactly what she discussed with Master Skywalker. The Jedi think they should be able to make decisions for everyone else. In the meantime, several Jedi have caused mayhem, destruction, injuries and even deaths while battling this disease. Jaina assures her she c
  5. chapter 20: On Coruscant, Daala, Dorvan and Desha are horrified to watch Javis Tyrr’s reporting of Natua Wan’s insane rampage at the Exhibition. Once again, Tyrr sensationalizes the story and adds secret footage from inside the Temple showing the renegade Seff Hellin being held in a private apartment. Tyrr rages at the Jedi for doing this in violation of the law and for Chief of State Daala for, knowingly or unknowingly, allowing them to do it. A furious Daala wants a security team prepped and an open comm to Kenth Hamner at once. The Jedi Council holds an emergency meeting, some
  6. chapter 19: In the serenity of this place, Ben and Luke learn from Tadar’Ro who seems to like them and they are growing to like him, too. Before them, he’d only met Jacen and Jorj Car’das. Jacen was the first Jedi to come to him. He notes that Jacen didn’t find learning about the Aing-Tii a delight; it was just a task he had to accomplish, to master before he went on to something else. This was early in Jacen’s journey, but Ben recognizes he was already set on his dark path even then. They’d learned from Car’das’s journals that the Aing-Tii don’t believe in the light or dark si
  7. chapter 18: In the control room, Natua is careful not to kill anyone, but she had knocked the guards out. She runs out to find a way to cause a distraction that will allow her to escape. The crowd inside is starting to stampede. Leia is hoping Jaina is making better progress with her door than Radd is. She herself has to jump into a boarwolf pen to save a small child who’s fallen in. Han hauls out out of the pen, Allana wrapped in his other arm. She has to deal with the nexu now. An Ithorian with his leg caught in its jaws is pulled out after Leia kills it. Radd gets t
  8. chapter 17: Jaina thinks the Exhibition stinks. Natua Wan and Radd Minker are escorting the Solo family on this day. Allana looks around at all the animals, while Jaina and Leia catch up on family business. Leia can sense Luke most of the time, Cilghal is keeping in touch, Jaina and Jag are doing well, save Javis Tyrr’s attempts to disrupt their dates. Radd points out that he’s here now. Jaina suggest they try to lose him inside the hall. Leia spots a small Kybuck which originated on Kashyyyk and can be easily ridden. She thinks she can arrange for Allana to see it befor
  9. chapter 16: On Kesh, in the past, Vestara flies Tikk to the Temple where she will live. Besides a few necessary items sent from home, she will have everything provided for there. Apprentices live simple lives as the Sith want to know that their Sabers can live without luxuries. Lady Rhea greets her, taking the reins of the uvak. Vestara can’t help but wonder if Tikk will be hers again. Rhea notices this and tells her that she is used to a life without want. She needs to learn how not to have things. An apprentice raises his lightsaber above Tikk’s head. Vestara’s mind cr
  10. chapter 15: Tadar’Ro has transmitted coordinates to them. The jumps are easy and quick and take them to another moon. There are cities here and dwellings, moisture farming equipment and the presence of many beings. Tadar’Ro waits for them with several beings. He holds out a type of microphone. A human voice comes from it. The device was created after a human taught them his language. They communicate through pheromones which are analyzed and translated into corresponding words in Basic. Luke and Ben follow him to a long line of Aing-tii. Tadar’Ro explains that they wil
  11. chapter 14: Ben wonders if they are walking into a trap. Luke thinks the Aing-Tii have had opportunities to kill them earlier. They land on a moon. Luke tells Ben to leave his lightsaber on board. They are approached by Aing-Tii who do not seem to understand Basic. Luke believes that his challenge is to learn how to communicate with them. It appears that they creatures speak with green tendrils flickering out of their mouths. Luke sits down, cross-legged, Ben with him, and connects to the Force. Suddenly, Ben understands that the being’s name is Tadar’Ro. It’s a very i
  12. chapter 13: At the Kathol Rift, the Jade Shadow jumps out of hyperspace. Luke sends a message to Cilghal, telling her where they are. They’ve narrowed their search. Jacen had not mentioned needing any special equipment to find the place. Neither had Jorj Car’das. Luke utilizes the hassat-durr technique to protect the ship from the electrical discharges out here. They will have to assess what damage has already been done. During an argument about whether or not Ben should learn flow-walking, the hallucinations start. Hundreds of tiny arachnids crawl around. They calm th
  13. chapter 12: Jaina almost misses Dab Hantaq who at least tried to be courteous when doing his job. The reporters, by contrast, are pushy Jaina contacts Jag for another stealth mission and walks out the Jedi Temple, past the reporters, letting them see her in a formal gown and high heels. Dodging questions ranging from slavery on Vinsoth to vegetarian Jedi, she jumps into a speeder driven by Winter. Javis Tyrr follows the speeder with his holocam droid beside him, hoping to eavesdrop on the conversation at dinner. He has aired many responsible stories about the Jedi, includi
  14. chapter 11: Wynn Dorvan heads to his office, bare for the most part since he has no family. There is a bouquet of flowers waiting for him that does surprise him. His chitlick, Pocket, stirs from her place inside his pocket. The card is in Daala’s handwriting. It tells him, “Sorry. A favor”. He doesn’t know what she means until a perky young Twi’lek greets him. She’s Desha Lor, his new assistant. It turns out she’s the daughter of a diplomat who is well known and respected and, apparently, a friend to Daala. The girl doesn’t have a criminal record, is a good student and
  15. chapter 10: Two years earlier, on Kesh, Vestara wakes up in her beautiful room, attended by her Keshiri servant, Muura. Today, she’s going to meet the Circle of Lords, having been summoned by a Sith Master himself. Her father is Gavar Khai, a Sith Saber. Her mother, Lahka, is not Force-sensitive, so stays out of Sith business. Gavar Khai was surprised and concerned, questioning her gently as to what she has said or done that may have upset someone. She assured him she’d done nothing, but doesn’t mention the conversation with Ship. Security had cleared the area around it an
  16. chapter 9: In the detention center of the Jedi Temple, Leia and Han go to visit Seff Hellin who is in comfortable surroundings, but limited by ysalamiri. They confirm that he’s the same one they saw a few months ago. Leia thinks his aura has gotten darker and more stronger. Leia believes they should go visit the Horns. Jaina admits it’s been hard on them, losing both children and Chief Daala implying that their family could be the reason. At least, Daala is willing to see the Solos. Jaina warns them that the heat’s not off yet. The observers are gone, but the journa
  17. chapter 8: Kenth Hamner arrives first in the High Council chambers to think. He’d been selected for this job because of his deftness with politics. Yet, everything he does only gets the Order into deeper trouble. He’d initially thought Daala a good choice for Chief of State, but now she just confuses him. She seemed rational and, after all, Jagged Fel is the Imperial Head of State. Those differences don’t seem so important after all this time. He’d gone along with everything the Chief has asked for, yet she still presses down on them. He’s asked for a meeting that she’s
  18. chapter 7: Ben and Luke divide up the information that Cilghal sends them on the Kathol Rift and the Aing-Tii. While Ben studies the species themselves, Luke looks up information on the dangerous spatial phenomenon that makes up the Rift. It’s navigable, but quite difficult due to a huge cloud of unstable gases that is several parsecs wide. The Aing-Tii seem to be able to handle it well. This is due to currents in the Rift that wrap around the dangerous cloud of gas. Those corridors change position, though, sometimes many times per day. There must be some predictable pattern t
  19. chapter 6: A lot of work had gone into Jade Shadow, given by Tendra Calrissian, upgraded by Talon Karrde, modified by Han Solo, but it is still Mara’s ship. Ben can feel his mother all over the place. Cilghal comms Luke to tell him that Jysella Horn has fallen prey to the mysterious disease, too. It happened right before Cilghal’s eyes with with no warning. An attempt was made to detain her, but she escaped and was captured by the GA forces. Cilghal is certain that Jysella flow-walked for a moment. She seemed to know where she would be confronted and tried to avoid thos
  20. chapter 5: Two years earlier, on the world of Kesh, Vestara Khai faces her adversary, her good friend and native Keshiri, Ahri Raas. They spar with their lightsabers until she wins, then they relax. Neither of them have been chosen formerly as apprentices, but Vestara is 14 and knows that it’s likely that she will be chosen. The Tyro are often chosen at much younger ages and Vestara is strong in the Force. She does, however, have a scar on her face that the Tribe considers a flaw. It is on her mouth’s corner and cosmetic surgery had failed to correct it completely. Kes
  21. chapter 4: Admiral Daala, Chief of State, exits the vehicle where she gives a statement reminding the audience how Valin Horn caused property damage while on his rampage. His sister has now been proven to suffer from the same incapacitation. Since the Jedi have proven they cannot contain members of their order, Jysella Horn will be taken to the same facility and restrained in carbonite with her brother. She goes on to point out that Luke Skywalker has admitted his inability to control his Jedi has constituted reckless endangerment and is exiled until he can provide evidence that
  22. chapter 3: Yaqeel and Barv sit in a café and watch a stranger come in with a cam droid. Yaqeel is disgusted to see that it’s a journalist. Suddenly a pedestrian hurtles through the window. The two Jedi are stunned to see that it’s Jysella Horn. Realizing that she is behaving erratically, they try to stop her but she tinks they are fakes, too. Yaqeel uses the Force to push the cam droid at her friend who seems to almost know that it was going to happen. She cuts that droid up. When the GA security shows up, they grab her and restrain her. Cilghal arrives and tells the tw
  23. chapter 2: Jysella doesn’t know where she can go, wishing she had believed her brother. A Fake version of Natua Wan appears, trying to stop her. Jysella throws a bust of a long-dead Jedi at her and knocks her over. The Fake Jedi are everywhere. She whirls her lightsaber at Radd Minker and escapes through a door. Cilghal catches up here to find Minker cutting a hole in the door. She tells security that Jysella is on the other side. Reaching out, Cilghal senses the young woman, but finds that there’s something surrounding the fear that seems familiar. She can’t place it.
  24. chapter 1: Jysella Horn feels like part of her is frozen in carbonite like her brother. Always feeling like the tagalong little sister, the three-year difference between Valin and her haven’t made much of a difference lately as they’ve grown into friends. Her friend, Bazel Warv lays a hand on her shoulder on the way up the stairs of the Jedi Temple. Barv forgets how strong he is, but, at least, with little Amelia, the adopted daughter of Han and Leia, he’s very gentle. She rides on his shoulders sometimes, loving everyone in the small group of Jedi called “the Unit” that consist
  25. Prologue Two years ago, Dician sensed the planet Ziost even before she saw it from the bridge of Poison Moon. She looks for the meditation sphere and turns to her sensor officer, Ithila. After a short time, it arrives. Dician tries to urge it to come with her to Korriban to the One Sith. Ship refuses and turns back to Ziost. Dician, her original mission to track down Alema Rar, finished by shattering the base at the asteroid, ponders her next move. The Millennium Falcon was at the asteroid base, too. She’d tried to destroy it before Ship had shown up without Alema. She
