- "The Vader from A New Hope was a terrifying, enigmatic black knight who spoke infrequently. Any good in him was buried much too deep to see. He represented the relentless strength of the Empire, and his thoughts, like his face, were hidden by his mask. When writing Star Wars: Purge—The Tyrant’s Fist, this was the Vader I embraced."
- ―Alexander Freed
