  1. chapter 13: Jaina disables the cleaning droid and determines how it works. She just can’t figure out how Javis Tyrr got hold of such a sophisticated one. A little more research determines Moff Lecersen to be the source. She comms Jag and insists he come to the Temple right away. Jaina wishes she knew how much of their conversation in the limo had been passed along to Tyrr. Lowie would be able to help her with this, but then he would have to find out about the Mandalorian deal. Her parents come in, looking unhappy. They sit with her, not really interested in the news abou
  2. chapter 12: Ten minutes later, the Solos reach the Jedi Temple to find that Jaden Korr is the one guarding the entrance to the Council Chambers. Two apprentices normally do this which leads the Solos to believe that Master Hamner doesn’t want to be bothered by them in particular. He admits that he was told specifically not to let the Solos in. Han and Leia tell him that they have information that the Masters may want to consider before making their decision about Barv and Yaqeel. Korr reluctantly agrees to carry in the message for them. They are upset to find that Hamner is now
  3. chapter 11: The last of the Nexu cubs is named Anji. Her quills have been dulled, her claws clipped and she wears a dental implant that prevents her from biting hard enough to draw blood. The sight of her granddaughter with the cub makes Leia tear up as she remembers how good Jacen was with animals. She cannot help but think of her grown up on a throne, surrounded by people of all kinds. Allana confesses her fear that she might go crazy the way Barv and Yaqeel did and be put in carbonite. Han tells her that Anji would never let that happen to her. Leia reveals that they’ve as
  4. chapter 10: Moff Lecersen can’t help but admire intelligence and ambition completely devoid of morality in Javis Tyrr. He’s also quite irritated to see the footage of the Solos locking the GAS out of the Temple, hindering the same law they themselves always insist others follow. Lecersen himself would like to be in a position to make sure Han Solo can never hold a blaster on him again as he had on the Anakin Solo. Jagged Fel isn’t ruthless enough to head the Galactic Empire too much longer. When he inevitably makes a mistake, Lecersen and several others will be waiting to plunge
  5. chapter 9: Luke and Ben are standing inside the chamber, watching floating bodies drift around them, but they are certainly living bodies. As they break the seal, the odor of some decomposed bodies hits them, but it is largely drowned out by the overpowering scent of many that have remained unclean for a long time. A large energy source seems to be fixed above, reminding them a bit of Glowpoint at the former Centerpoint Station. Ben starts to lead the way in, then jumps back, telling his father that he thinks his old friend has found him. Luke senses a cold tentacle of long
  6. chapter 8: The Eternal Crusader floats through the colorful whirls, searching for Ship. Vestara Khai reaches out and finds his presence. The ship is basking in the Dark Side energy of a new entity, filled with hunger and longing. She realizes that this Dark Side presence commanded Ship. It will not return to her. Lady Rhea’s executive officer, Yuvar Xal, questions whether Vestara can really sense Ship. Vestara assures him it is Ship. There is a great deal of political maneuvering on this vessel, something that all the Tribe must become adept at as it is part of their society.
  7. chapter 7: Bazel Warv, though comatose, is having convulsions which have caused damage to many of the vehicles in the hangar. The two apprentices at the entrance have tried to help. Melari Ruxton apologizes for hitting Barv with a second tranquilizer dart when he kept trying to get up. Leia and Han assure her that she did the right thing. If she hadn’t, Barv could have recovered and run outside. The other apprentice, Reeqo, agrees that he’d rather be in a comfortable cell in the Temple than hanging somewhere in carbonite. Leia realizes the impact all this has had on young Jedi,
  8. chapter 6: On the way out, Jaina waves to Captain Atar from the inside of Jag’s speeder. She can tell he’s angry, especially since his men haven’t been able to get the gate open. Jag can’t believe Daala would be foolish enough to send an officer so easily manipulated by the Jedi Mind Trick. Jaina explains that it wasn’t the Force, it was a trick her father learned years ago. The speeder is now blocked by GAS forces. The driver offers to fly over them, but Jag doesn’t want them to think they are being threatened. Jaina admits that she probably shouldn’t have ticked off Atar by wa
  9. chapter 5: When Barv falls, however, he lands on Jag’s speeder, putting a sizable dent in it. Jag assures Han that the speeder is easily repaired. He’s just relieved Barv didn’t land on Jaina. Jaina assures him that she’s tough enough to handle it. Privately, Han muses on whether it’s a good idea for those two to be married. He knows the rigid duty-bound type enough to know that Jag’s responsibilities will always come first, even over Jaina. Jaina goes to grab Barv, asking her father to retrieve Yaqeel. Jag instructs his driver to keep his weapon down and stay quiet about this whole
  10. chapter 4: Jedi Knight Bazel Warv is having a great day, having spent the morning with Amelia Solo and the afternoon with his friend, Yaqeel Saav’etu, a Bothan Jedi. Yaqeel seems out of sorts today. He isn’t sure if she’s irritated with him or at being unable to complete her assignment of getting into Tahiri Veila’s apartment to determine why she wasn’t returning Jaina’s calls. It hadn’t helped that the Toydarian landlord didn’t succumb to the Jedi Mind Trick, became offended and has vowed to watch the place all day. He wonders if she’s just worried about the public trying to avoid
  11. chapter 3: As Ben struggles to deal with the station’s rotation in order to dock, Luke can sense the writhing, needy tentacle through the Force. This must be what Ben felt while at Shelter, but he can’t tell what it actually did to him. Upon landing, Ben concentrates on repair reports. Luke thinks repairs can wait; he asks if Ben is experiencing more memories. Ben assures him he’s not trying to avoid anything out there, but the ship needs to be ready to leave in a hurry if they encounter something bad. Luke wishes Ben were willing to face his demons head on. In any case, there
  12. chapter 2: In the Maw, Luke and Ben feel that something is watching them. Luke admits he’s actually eager to meet the Mind-Drinkers that the Aing-Tii warned them about. Ben can’t help but feel awe at how calm his father is, but he snaps when Luke asks if Ben felt this when he was at Shelter as a child. He had been a very little child. Something had frightened him, though, enough to keep him afraid of the Force for many years. He meditates on the Maw Installation, having no conscious memories of the place when he lived there, until he finds a long-buried instance of holding a stranger
  13. chapter 1: In the Jedi Temple, Han and Leia watch Seff Hellin and Natua Wan try unsuccessfully to breach their cells with their hands. Depriving them of access to the Force seems cruel, but it’s one of the few ways to keep them under control. It’s hard to see these young people suffer so much through no fault of their own; it’s too close of a reminder of their inability to save Jacen. Cilghal asks after “Amelia” and is concerned when told she is being watched by Bazel Warv, also known as Barv. He’s very gentle and good with the little girl, but Cilghal points out that the only con
  14. chapter 25: Above Kesh, Vestara marvels at how quickly they’ve produced a fleet of a dozen ships. In the Council Chambers that used to intimidate her, she listens as Lord Vol tells the assembled how Ship has revealed the existence of the Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. Lady Rhea continues by explaining how they can cut off the head of any opposition to them by eliminating Skywalker. They are able to track him through the Force. A single strike team will be sent to get rid of him. Ahri’s Master, Yuvar Xal, protests that Skywalker cannot possible be alone without back-up. Rhea a
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
