Opening crawlEdit

THE FREEDON NADD UPRISING
These are the recondite histories of the ancient order of Jedi Knights, as recorded in the crystalline recesses of the Jedi Holocron.

The period four thousand years before the birth of Luke Skywalker marked a turning point in the history of the Galactic Republic. During that time, two young Jedi became respected throughout the galaxy for their heroic exploits in great battles with the dark side of the Force. Their names were Ulic Qel-Droma and Nomi Sunrider.

We take up an early chapter in their saga on the planet Onderon, a world long-divided into warring tribes. Following the death of Queen Amanoa of Iziz, her daughter Galia has ascended to the throne, sharing power with her husband, the Beast-Lord Oron Kira.

For a time it seemed that Jedi Master Arca and his three Jedi apprentices (Ulic, his brother Cay Qel-Droma, and Tott Doneeta) had succeeded in bringing peace to divided Onderon. But many Onderonians still worship the memory of Freedon Nadd, a dark Jedi who ruled the planet centuries earlier.

Joining with mutinous officers of Onderon’s royal military, the Naddists are staging violent protests inside the great walled city of Iziz. Queen Galia’s new government is already on the verge of collapse...

Plot summaryEdit

While attempting to move the sarcophagi of Freedon Nadd and Queen Amanoa to the moon of Dxun, Jedi Knights Arca Jeth, Ulic Qel-Droma, Cay Qel-Droma, Tott Doneeta and Oss Wilum are attacked by several hundred Naddists, led by Warb Null, invading Iziz from underground. While distracting the Iziz forces, a group of Naddists are able to snatch the sarcophagi and take it back with them underground.

Master Arca, Ulic and Queen Galia consult Galia's ailing father, King Ommin, for assistance. However, they are confronted by the spirit of Freedon Nadd, and Ommin betrays his seemingly immobile state by attacking Master Arca, knocking him unconscious. Warb Null comes in and attacks Ulic, but is soon bested and killed by the young Jedi. Unfortunately, this gives Ommin the time he needs to kidnap Master Arca.

Meanwhile, on Ossus, Nomi Sunrider, Dace Diath, Shoaneb Culu, Kith Kark and Qrrrl Toq are chosen to defend Iziz in the forthcoming Second Battle of Onderon.

On Coruscant, heirs to the Empress Teta system royalty and members of the Dark Side cult the Krath, Satal and Aleema Keto, enter the Galactic Museum and find a fascinating Sith book. Satal steals it while the curator isn't looking, and, after seeing a news report on the Sith practitioners still active in Iziz, the Ketos fly to Onderon to find said practitioners and discover the secrets of their new book.
