Star Wars Legacy #17: Updates and Review

The latest issue of Legacy has arrived and so I will update my articles as necessary as well as giving an overview of the plotline. So updates on sith and active Jedi to follow then a basic story overview of what else is included in the issue.

Sith Updates

Darth Krayt

More of his story was revealed in this issue. After his defeat by Kenobi he became a bounty hunter, until he chased one prize to Korriban where he discovered the holocron of XoXaan one of the founders if the Sith order. He agreed to follow her teachings, but it was some time before he truly embraced the Sith ways. In present times he is following Cade's training, convinced that he will eventually fall to the dark side and heal him.

Darth Maladi and Nihl

These two continue to serve the dark lord, but grow suspicious of his plans for Skywalker and closer to each other. Nihl has been observing ancient Sith holocrons that differ from Krayt's teachings.

Darth Talon

She is now Cade's instructor and has taught him combat and Sith history. She taught him passion, and to strengthen his connection to her and the dark side she slept with him. However she remains totally loyal to Krayt, and has expressed suspicions of Cade's loyalty. She revealed that her master, Ruyn, willingly accepted death to help her connect to the dark side.

Cade Skywalker

Cade has been training with the Sith for around a month, he hasn't truly been converted to the teachings of the Sith, despite forming a close bond with Talon. But his feelings may not be as deeply hidden as he would like.

Jedi Updates

Cade's teachers remained in hiding on Ossus, escaping Sith patrols. But Darth Stryfe still suspects their presence and ordered the temple to be destroyed from orbit. Whether the Jedi and their Yuuzhan Vong allies survive.

Well that covers a good chunk of the action, but Cade's former crew and some unusual allies are plotting to rescue him and have already infiltrated the Sith temple to gain intel and are ready to make their move, whether Cade wants to be rescued or not.

That's it for now - another article coming soon
