Opening crawlEdit

4000 years before the time of Luke
Skywalker, the Jedi Knights were the most
powerful and respected force in the Galaxy. In
those days a Jedi Master named Arca of
Arkania sent three of his apprentices on a
mission of peace and justice.

The three young Jedi are Ulic Qel-Droma, his
brother Cay Qel-Droma, and the Twi’lek Tott
Doneeta. Aboard their ship, the Nebulon Ranger,
they cross the vastness of hyperspace to an untamed
world called Onderon.

As the three Jedi Knights meet with Queen Amanoa,
ruler of Iziz, the Beast Lords stage an unexpected attack
on the Royal Citadel, and the Queen’s daughter Galia is

Overriding the misgivings of his companions, Ulic Qel-Droma
decides to pursue the abductors. As the Nebulon Ranger takes
to the skies over Onderon’s wild forests, a seeker-torpedo, fired
from the ground, finds its target!

Plot summaryEdit

Ulic and Cay Qel-Droma and Tott Doneeta crash land in the Onderon wildlands, and, after taming some native Bomas, head to Beast Lord Modon Kira's citadel, where Galia is in the middle of being married to Modon's son, Oron. Ulic attempts to rescue her, but she claims she wants to be married to Oron.

Modon settles things down and schedules a wedding banquet to discuss things with the three Jedi. Oron explains that, 400 years ago, a Dark Jedi named Freedon Nadd became King of Onderon, beginning a long line of darkness in the Iziz royalty. The Jedi, Galia and Oron head back to Iziz to convince Queen Amanoa to end this war, but she sends them away using ancient Sith magic.

The peaceful solution having failed, Modon Kira gathers the Beast Lords from across Onderon to attack Iziz. Meanwhile, Cay Qel-Droma has his arm cut off by Amanoa's royal guard, and Amanoa herself heads deep below the palace to the tomb of Freedon Nadd. Ulic carries his brother into a dark corridor, where Cay detaches a droid's arm and takes it as his own.

High above Iziz, Jedi Master Arca Jeth uses his battle meditation to turn the tide of the battle, bringing victory to the Beast Riders. Ulic, Cay, Tott, Arca, Galia and Oron go down into the mausoleum of Freedon Nadd, where Amanoa is instantly killed by the light given off by Master Arca. Princess Galia soon marries Oron Kira, ending the Beast Wars of Onderon, as well as Iziz's 400-year reign of darkness.
