Plot summary[edit | edit source]

PART 6 of 6
Cyborg Beilert Valance was once a loyal solider for the Empire. But he was abandoned
by the military after suffering grievous injuries in battle. When he finally returned to his
homeworld, Valance found the village had been decimated by raiders. The Empire had
abandoned his people as well.

Valance swore vengeance upon the raiders and the Imperials. When the mysterious Hidden
Hand organization hired him alongside a team of bounty hunters to kill Darth Vader, he
couldn't say no. But Vader, also on the hunt for the Hidden Hand, wiped out the team
and captured Valance. Despite gruesome torture at the hands of the dark lord, Valance
refused to give up any intel about the shadowy organization and escaped.

Vader had a proposition for Valance: help him destroy the Hidden Hand, and what remained
of Valance's people would be protected by the Empire.

Now Valance finally has a chance for revenge if he can survive the Hidden Hand
and Darth Vader....
