"The conditions innocents live under cannot be imagined from the comfort of Coruscant. Threats rise against them from all quarters, every day, every breath is spent in dire jeopardy. The fashionable temptation is to blame the victims for not rising up against their tormentors—as if having the will alone to defeat forces beyond their reckoning. Sadly, it is not. They cannot free themselves—nor even always save themselves—from the flood of darkness."
―Vannar Treece, Those Who Drown[src]

Those Who Drown was a holotract that was written by Jedi Master Vannar Treece during the Republic Dark Age, on the subject of the living conditions of people who dwelled in regions of space that were controlled by the Sith.
