Opening crawlEdit

Jedi Holocaust
Ulic Qel-Droma’s impetuous raid on the capital world of Coruscant has ended in disaster. While Ulic’s general, Mandalore, leads troops through the city streets, Ulic’s lover and co-conspirator, Aleema, has secretly betrayed him, allowing Ulic to be taken prisoner. Aleema usurps command of the uprising and orders Mandalore to follow, leaving Ulic to his fate.

But Mandalore quietly uncovers proof of Aleema’s treachery and vows to rescue his master, whatever it may take. While Aleema and her Krath warriors develop plans for a major strike, Mandalore seeks the aid of another ally – Exar Kun, the Dark Lord of the Sith.

Meanwhile, Kun launches his own insidious strike at the heart of the Old Republic. He has dispatched his squad of Sith converts, power-hungry young Jedi who have been possessed by ancient Sith spirits, on a dark mission – to strike swiftly and unexpectedly to kill their own Jedi Masters!

On Coruscant, Ulic is brought to trial for his rampage against the Republic. Though Ulic’s Jedi friends speak on his behalf – including his brother Cay and Nomi Sunrider – the prospects look grim. Then the chamber doors burst open, and Kun enters, flanked by Mandalore and well-armed Massassi warriors. Using dark Sith powers, Kun takes over the proceedings, freeing Ulic and then manipulating the great speaker like an amusing puppet before killing him.

The entire trial has turned into a game for Ulic and Kun – until Master Vodo-Siosk Baas, Kun’s own teacher, comes forth bravely to challenge Kun. After a furious battle, Kun kills his former master on the Senate floor, to the horror of all spectators. Victorious, Kun and Ulic take their forces and depart for Kun’s secret Sith stronghold on the jungle moon of Yavin Four, proclaiming that their conquest has only just begun.

Plot summaryEdit

Ulic Qel-Droma, Exar Kun and Mandalore return to Yavin 4. Ulic learns from Mandalore that Aleema Keto plans to betray him. Knowing this, Ulic sends Aleema to Kemplex IX, to draw the Republic's forces away from Coruscant, which is Kun's true target. Aleema arrives near Kemplex IX, in a flagship once used by the ancient Sith Lord Naga Sadow. She succeeds in luring a small Republic fleet to Kemplex IX, but as Aleema uses her flagship's weapons, she triggers a chain reaction, causing Cron Cluster, a group of ten nearby stars, to unleash all of their inner power. This results in the destruction and death of Aleema.
