Opening CrawlEdit

The Trials of a Jedi
''On the isolated, frozen world of Rhen Var, young Vima Sunrider enters the ice fortress in search of [[Ulic Qel-Droma]]. She calls out, hoping to find him, hoping he will teach her to become a Jedi. But when she finds the bitter, guilt-ridden man, he sees a vision of his beloved Nomi Sunrider. He refuses to train her, insists he is no longer a Jedi Knight, and turns her out into the snow. Vima wonders forlorn through a blizzard, unaware of her danger, until Ulic rescues her. The two take shelter from the storm...and Ulic gradually warms to the company, and tells Vima about his tragic days as a Jedi.''

''Hoggon, the down-on-his-luck scavanger, has left Vima on the frozen world with Ulic, astonished by his brush with fame. Then Hoggon realized that something unusual is going on. He rushes to Exis Station to tell Nomi where her daughter has gone. But the distraught woman refuses to hear him, and he is taken away.''

''Meanwhile, the Twi'lek Jedi Tott Doneeta travels with a bitter and angry Sylvar to her Cathar homeworld, where she is received as a returning hero. She seeks out her old mentor, who tries to help her vanquish the ghosts in her mind. Sylvar decides to go on a blood hunt, a Cathar ritual to hunt down dangerous prey and purge the inner violence and fury. Sylvar and Tott head off to a nest of destructive insectoid creatures, the Kiltik.  Slipping inside they attack the creatures - but Sylvar is utterly filled with violence and fury. She becomes a whirlwind of teeth, claws, and lightsaber. Appalled by the magnitude of her unleashed violence, Tott leaves alone, telling Sylvar that she must find her own release, her own serenity. By herself, Sylvar seeks to calm the storm in her heart...''

Plot summaryEdit

On Rhen Var, the powerless, exiled Jedi Ulic Qel-Droma continues to train Vima. Sylvar, the ferocious Cathar Jedi, has gone into isolation herself, directing all her anger and energy toward thoughts of revenge aimed at Ulic. But when a messenger comes to her campfire, informing her that Vima Sunrider has vanished, she rushes to offer Nomi any help she can give.
