Tales of the Jedi: The Freedon Nadd Uprising 2: Initiates of the Sith is the second, and last, issue in the Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi — The Freedon Nadd Uprising series of comics. It was published on September 1, 1994 by Dark Horse Comics.

Opening crawlEdit

Determined to uproot Sith magic from Onderon, Jedi Master Arca orders the sarcophagi of Queen Amanoa and dark Jedi Freedon Nadd removed to the Dxun moon.

But the followers of Freedon Nadd launch and unexpected attack from beneath the miles-deep city of Iziz. During the assault, Master Arca is felled by a blow of dark Force – allowing the Naddists to succeed in capturing the royal sarcophagi.

As he recovers, Arca learns from Queen Galia that her father King Ommin is being kept alive in a secret life-support facility. Suspicious, Arca visits the dying old man with Galia and Jedi Knight Ulic Qel-Droma at his side. There, Arca’s suspicions are confirmed when the spirit-avatar of long dead Freedon Nadd appears – Ommin is his follower! The crippled old King lashes out at Arca with blistering bolts of dark side energy, subduing the Jedi Master!

Ulic Qel-Droma tries valiantly to stop King Ommin from capturing Arca when Warb Null, a dark Jedi warrior, intervenes. Ulic narrowly defeats Null in a deadly lightsaber duel, but not before Ommin escapes with Master Arca as his prisoner. Realizing that he and his fellow Jedi are outmatched by the Naddists, Ulic calls for assistance from the Galactic Republic and the coalition of Jedi Knights.

Plot summaryEdit

Satal and Aleema Keto arrive on Onderon to find a massive battle taking place. Their ship, the Krath Enchanter, crashes, but the young Ketos are able to escape with their lives. Meanwhile, the Jedi task force from Ossus, led by Nomi Sunrider, battles their way through Sith war droids and Naddists. Kith Kark is killed in the assault, as the rest of the Jedi infiltrate the royal palace, meeting up with Ulic and Cay Qel-Droma, Tott Doneeta and Oss Wilum.

Meanwhile, the Ketos are greeted by King Ommin, hoping to unlock the mysteries of their stolen Sith tome. Ommin gives Satal an amulet, with which he can read the book perfectly, as Arca Jeth is hung on the wall, suffering under deadly Sith magic. Out in the battlefield, Cay Qel-Droma has his prosthetic arm cut off by a war droid, which he quickly dispatches of with his organic arm.

The group of seven Jedi arrive at King Ommin's stronghold, and Ulic slices off the former King's armature, sending him tumbling to the ground limply. Victorious, the forces of Iziz soon transport the sarcophagi of Freedon Nadd, Queen Amanoa and now King Ommin to Dxun, to forever be laid to rest.
