The Eternal Alliance has faced a devastating blow after the mission to Nathema which led to the destruction of both the Eternal Fleet and the Gravestone. Now with the threats removed, the galactic war between the Empire and Republic looms on the horizon with the Empire conducting an assault on the Jedi world of Ossus where most of the Jedi, including Jedi Master and Council member Gnost-Dural, fled to after Zakuul's Conquest of the galaxy.
