- "I would sooner see Alderaan blasted into space debris than given over to the Empire."
- ―Cedarik Killesa
Cedarik Killesa was a Human male who opposed the Sith Empire and its backing of House Thul, whom he viewed as a puppet. He sent his troops against House Thul on multiple fronts as a diversionary tactic, a ruse which Jorad Sindarus Thul fell for. While House Thul's forces were spread thin, Killesa led a sizeable force through the siege tunnel that connected the lands of House Thul and House Killesa, a remnant from a more peaceful time. With information gathered on the battlefield, an Imperial allied individual took a set of thermite charges to collapse the tunnel before it was too late.
When confronted, Killesa was furious at the Empire's involvement, which he saw as House Thul's weakness, as well as treason. Even so, he demanded that the individual engage him in an honorable duel instead of detonating the thermite. Following this, House Killesa immediately surrendered to House Thul.
