  2. Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 ends with Darth Vader imprisoning Vaneé, and as shown in Star Wars Adventures: Shadow of Vader's Castle, he doesn't get released until after the end of the Galactic Civil War. As he appears in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places in 0 BBY, Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 must take place some time after 0 BBY. Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle takes place immediately before Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle, meaning that Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle 1 takes place after 0 BBY. As Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle features Darth Vader, who dies in 4 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, then this series must take place some time between 0 BBY and 4 ABY.
  3. Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle 1 takes place some time after A New Dawn, as Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla already know each other. Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide places A New Dawn six years prior to Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places in 5 BBY. Therefore A New Dawn takes place in 11 BBY, and Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle 1 takes place some time later. Furthermore, as Kanan Jarrus is not blind during the events of this comic, it must take place prior to "Twilight of the Apprentice". According to Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know, Updated and Expanded, Ahsoka Tano was 14 years old when she became Anakin Skywalker's Padawan and 32 years old when she fought him as Darth Vader in "Twilight of the Apprentice." Star Wars: Galactic Atlas established that Tano was apprenticed to Skywalker in 22 BBY, meaning "Twilight of the Apprentice" cannot be set any later than 3 BBY. Dawn of Rebellion states that Phoenix Cell established Chopper Base on Atollon three years before the Battle of Yavin or 3 BBY. Since "Twilight of the Apprentice" takes place after that event, it must be set in 3 BBY, and Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle 1 must take place some time prior.
