Tales of the Jedi 3: The Saga of Nomi Sunrider, Part 1 is the third issue in the Tales of the Jedi: Knights of the Old Republic series of comics. It was published on December 20, 1993 by Dark Horse Comics.
Jedi Knight Andur Sunrider, his wife Nomi, their daughter Vima and their droid A-3DO depart from H'ratth to meet Master Thon in the Stenness system, delivering Adegan crystals. They stop at a hyperspace port, where Bogga the Hutt hears word of the Adegan crystals Andur's carrying. Bogga sends three of his thugs; Gudb, Quanto and Rek; to kill him and retrieve the crystals. Gudb sicks his small Gorm-worm Skritch on Andur, biting him in the neck and killing him.
Nomi cries out in terror, but is contacted by her husband's spirit, telling her to take his lightsaber and defend herself with it. She quickly strikes down Quanto and Rek, but Gudb is able to escape. Nomi, Vima and A-3D0 travel to Ambria to continue the delivery at Andur's request. Nomi leaves Threedee behind to watch the Lightside Explorer, traveling to a lone house in the desolate wasteland of Ambria. There she is met by Oss Wilum riding, unbeknownst to Nomi, Master Thon.
Meanwhile, at the order of Bogga the Hutt, Gudb and several other gangsters have tracked down and entered the Lightside Explorer, shooting down 3D0 in the process, in an attempt to obtain the Adegan crystals. Bogga and his lackeys head outside Oss Wilum's home and begin stealing Oss' herd of beasts. Oss, Thon and Nomi head outside, but the thieves soon take advantage, Gudb holding a gun to the head of the downed Oss Wilum. But Thon interjects, trampling several of the criminals and forcing Bogga to retreat. Oss reveals to Nomi that the beast is Master Thon, and so begins the young Force-sensitive's journey to Jedi Knighthood.
