Tales of the Jedi - The Sith War 1 is the first issue of the Star Wars Legends comic book miniseries Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi — The Sith War. It was written by Kevin J. Anderson, illustrated by Dario Carrasco, Jr., and first published on August 15, 1995 by Dark Horse Comics.
The issue is set six months after the events of Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith 6: Jedi Assault, and it features the story "Edge of the Whirlwind," in which Mandalore the Indomitable challenges the fallen Jedi Ulic Qel-Droma to a duel.
This issue kicks off the thrill-a-minute follow-up to the best-selling Dark Lords of the Sith saga. Picking up six months after our story left off, Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma are implementing their insidious plan for revitalizing the Golden Age of the Sith. While insinuating his darkside teachings to Jedi students on the planet Ossus, it becomes clear that Kun is only concerned with securing a powerful Sith Holocron from its sealed repository in the great library of Ossus. Ulic has devoted himself to developing the darkside military strategy -- the key to which may just be winning the loyalty of the ferocious warrior race led by a masked mysteryman named Mandalore.
Duel on KuarEdit
The Mandalorians, led by Mandalore the Indomitable, wage war on the Empress Teta system. Mandalore challenges Ulic Qel-Droma to a duel, which Ulic accepts on the terms that if he wins, he shall receive control of the Mandalorian warriors. Ulic wins, and recruits Mandalore and his army to fight for the Sith. They begin to plan an attack on Coruscant.
In Tales of the Jedi - The Sith War 1, Zona Luka says that Jedi Master Arca Jeth died on Onderon, and Oss Wilum explains that it happened by an avatar of Freedon Nadd. The previously published Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith 3: Descent to the Dark Side establishes that he died in the Conclave at Deneba by a Krath war droid.
