Plot summary[]

As Aurra Sing stares down the Jedi sent to capture her, she is suddenly sent crashing by a huge boulder flung by Master Adi Gallia. Master Gallia goes in search of Sing, while Ki-Adi-Mundi searches for their fallen comrade, the Dark Woman. Meanwhile, Padawan A'Sharad Hett is left behind to guard the Quarren Senator. Adi Gallia realizes, only too late, who Sing's true quarry is, Senator Tikkes himself. Back at the ship, Sing attacks the small Quarren detachment, defended by the young Hett. Hett successfully repulses and incapacitates the Jedi hunter, but in doing so, gives into his hate. Ashamed, A'Sharad asks Ki to return him to the deserts of Tatooine. However, the Dark Woman asks to take him under her own teachings, convinced she can quell the darkness in his heart. Forced to beat a hasty retreat, the Jedi find that Aurra Sing has somehow escaped.


In 2007, Dark Horse and Hasbro released a Comic Packs reprint of Star Wars 31 with two action figures, Dark Woman and A'Sharad Hett.


Star Wars 31 is set in the Rise of the Empire era, and the comic dates itself to "30 years prior to Star Wars: A New Hope," or 30 BBY.
