Star Wars Legacy: Fight Another Day
Some minor changes to how I'm going to be running these articles. First of all I'm taking away the "Updates and Review" from the title, as that is fairly self-explanatory, and instead I'm adding the story arc title. I'll cover the issues arc by arc, grouping two and four parters together and treating one-shots separately and give you the titles of the issues.
I'll start with some updates.
First Appearance: Legacy #32 (Fight Another Day, part 1)
Vul Isen is a fully fledged force-using member of the One Sith order under Darth Krayt. His talents, however, are not in combat or powerful force use, but in Science. He combined his knowledge of science with his use of the force to create new techniques and tools to serve the order. He had good relations with Darth Wyyrlok, and under his guidance created a water variation of a Sith Leviathan to destroy the Mon Calamari. He also had experimented with toxins and bio-weapons, but none were suitable for the task. Interestingly his field meant that he did not earn a "Darth" title and instead of the usual black gear he wore a standard Imperial military uniform in his work.
This issue returns to the planet Dac, where the Mon Calamari race have been enslaved and are being exterminated by the Sith forces on the planet. An Imperial underwater assault team find a colony of hiding Mon Calamri and begin to hunt them. But the Imperials are counter-attacked by the Mon Calamari ranger, a secret fighting force using their own weapons and ships. They drive off the Imperials with the aid of Treis Sinde, the Imperial Knight, who stayed behind to help the resistance.
Darth Azard meets up with Vul Isen and together they summon and command the Sea Leviathan and test it's power on a group of Mon Calamari captives. They then send it off in hunt of the resistance. A scout group encounters the monster and reports back to Treis and they formulate a plan.
The Leviathan tracks the rangers and a group of refugees to a crevasse and begins to attack them. But Treis uses the force to summon a number of Devilsquid, a monstrous native Mon Calamari beast, to attack the Leviathan and drag it down into the depths. They disable the Sith's underwater craft and escape to fight another day.
Another great story from the Legacy team, I want to do a few more posts covering the characters and setting of Legacy, but I've a few other things I want to catch up on too. Hope you enjoyed this.
