Empire 14: The Savage Heart is the fourteenth issue in the Star Wars: Empire series of comics. It was published on December 10, 2003 by Dark Horse Comics.

Publisher's summary

Vader alone.

Vader the undefeated.

Vader the savage.

After the destruction of the Death Star, Darth Vader attempts to make it to an Imperial safe haven in his crippled TIE fighter, only to crash land in a savage wilderness. Forced to make his way on foot, attacked by ferocious native carnivores, Vader shucks off the restraints of Imperial order and Sith schemes and embraces his raw, wild power.

This is Vader as you never seen him before!

Plot summary

Escaping from the Battle of Yavin in his TIE/Advanced fighter, Darth Vader crash lands on the planet Vaal. The only Imperial presence on the planet is a small Imperial communications outpost, led by the lazy Sergeant Reybn and two other men. They prefer to relax and have fun, rather than doing actual work, reasoning that they're on one of the Empire's most distant outposts. Meanwhile, Vader encounters a pack of hyenax, vicious canine-like creatures that attempt to kill him. After slaying the pack leader, Vader is regarded as the new leader by the hounds. He helps them kill a large, horned mammal, then walks to the Imperial outpost, with the pack following him. The outpost crew is shocked over seeing Vader suddenly arrive, and are petrified as they watch him enter their Lambda-class shuttle. As Vader blasts off, the hounds kill the crew. Later, Vader arrives on Coruscant, and informs a commander that the communications outpost on Vaal will need a new crew. He then sends a small force to retrieve his ship, and tells them to treat it with their lives.
