Star Wars Legacy #19: Updates and Review

Since my last Legacy post issues 19-21 have come out, but I'll focus for this post on Legacy issue 19, which concludes the "Claws of the Dragon" six part story arc. We last left Cade facing off against the dark lord of the Sith Himself, trapped in the Sith temple, let's see what happened in the explosive finale of the series.

Sith Updates

Darth Krayt

Darth Krayt battled Cade Skywalker, taunting the boy and knowing that he could easily beat him as and when he needed too. He did not anticipate however the rescue plan put together by Cade's mother and friends and just as he gained a decisive advantage over Cade, Morrigan Cored shot him in the back with a high powered blaster and Cade jumped out of the window to be rescued by his friends. Krayt is naturally furious and it looks like more bad news might be on the way for the Sith lord.

Darth Talon

A kill is still unconfirmed, but her injuries are definitely serious if not fatal.

Darth Nihl

Nihl battled Cade, but was beaten down when Cade severed his arm and slammed him into pillar. Krayt ordered Cade to kill his hand, but he refused simply because "you want me to" so Nihl still lives.

Jedi Updates

Cade is no longer in the Sith ranks, which would be an encouragement to his friends in the order, but their fate remains unknown, and Cade has expressed no direct interest in rejoining the order.

And once again I've effectively revealed all the story other than the bombshell at the end, which revealed that Morrigan Corde, Cade's mother is none other than Moff Nyna Calixte of the Galactic Empire!!!
