On Arkania, Jedi Master Arca Jeth tells the history of Onderon to his apprentices Ulic Qel-Droma, his brother Cay, and Tott Doneeta; eons ago, the atmospheres of Onderon and its moon Dxun were briefly connected, allowing the flying beasts of Dxun to fly to Onderon. Then, as the great city of Iziz was built, the criminals were cast out into the wildlands, where they eventually learned to tame the Dxun beasts, using them to attack Iziz.
Master Arca explains that he has been chosen as the Jedi watchman of the Onderon system, and sends Ulic, Cay and Tott to Iziz to settle this 300-year conflict known as the Beast Wars. Soon after arriving in Queen Amanoa's throne room in Iziz, several Beast Riders burst through the window and kidnap Princess Galia. Amanoa sends the Jedi out into the wildlands to save her, but their ship is shot down by the defending Beast Riders...
