Near the end of the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire, the native Flesh Raiders of the planet Tython began to wage war against the Jedi Order and the Pilgrims of Kalikori Village. Under the command of the Nautolan Dark Jedi Bengel Morr, the Flesh Raiders became more bold in their attacks against the Jedi, who had returned to their Order's ancestral homeworld in the aftermath of the Sacking of Coruscant and the end of the Great Galactic War. Morr, who had been driven insane by the devastation during the fall of the Jedi Temple, blamed the Jedi Order for the defeat and turned to the dark side, taking on the Human Callef as his apprentice and plotting the destruction of the Order.
In 3643 BBY, Morr set his plans in motion by sending Callef and a Flesh Raider invasion force against the Jedi outpost in the Tythonian Gnarls region. However, Callef was defeated and killed by a young Jedi initiate, who was then taken on as an apprentice by the Human Jedi Master Orgus Din, Morr's former teacher. Together with Din and the astromech droid T7-O1, the apprentice learned of Morr's survival and vendetta against the Order during the course of several missions for both the Jedi and the Twi'lek settlers of Kalikori. Upon discovering that Morr had organized the natives into an army and was training some of them as Force Adepts, the Jedi moved to eliminate the Flesh Raider command base and several other camps in an attempt to put a stop to Morr's planned assault on the Order.
However, Din and his apprentice were betrayed by the villagers when Morr made a deal with the Twi'leks, trading protection from the Flesh Raiders in exchange for the life of his former Master and Din's new Padawan. While Morr took his unconscious mentor to the ancient machine known as the Forge
, the villagers attempted to kill Din's apprentice and T7-O1 as part of an altered deal, but the Padawan managed to escape without bloodshed
and pursued Morr through the Tythan wilderness. Fighting through the Flesh Raider army occupying the ruins of an ancient city
, the Padawan and T7-O1 found Morr waiting before the Forge. In a fierce duel
, the young apprentice defeated the deranged Morr and rescued Din from his former student. For the Padawan's bravery and actions, Din ordered his apprentice to construct a lightsaber
and return to the Jedi Temple
, where Morr was healed of his insanity and the apprentice elevated to the rank of Jedi Knight
. Along with T7-O1, the Knight's first assignment soon spiraled into war as the Sith Lord Darth Angral
launched a campaign
against the Republic, and the young Jedi played a pivotal role in the conflict by ultimately defeating the Sith
in a battle
above Tython. (Read more…)
