Publisher's summaryEdit

Everyone is searching for Bornan Thul. Not only is he father to one of Jacen's and Jaina's fellow students, he holds the key to a secret coalition gaining power in the New Republic.

The young Jedi Knights race across the galaxy to find him—but they may be too late. For their true enemy is about to show its treacherous face. And it will be shockingly familiar…

ContinuityEdit

"Again, there has to be a certain balance to a ret-con for a hardcore fan to buy it, including myself. I think the Ailyn Vel fix had a sufficient confluence of influences [] to score higher than average on the believability-meter."
―Abel G. Peña[src]

In 2005, the Star Wars Insider 80 article "The History of the Mandalorians," by Abel G. Peña, revealed that the character Ailyn Vel, daughter of Boba Fett, had been posing as her father, and that Fett himself does not actually appear in Star Wars: Young Jedi Knights.[2] Peña gave several reasons for the retcon: First, he felt that Fett's actions in Young Jedi Knights: Shards of Alderaan did not match his characterization from previous appearances, most notably the 1996 short story "The Last One Standing: The Tale of Boba Fett." Additionally, in Young Jedi Knights: Diversity Alliance, the character Nolaa Tarkona suggests that Fett could be female. These points, coupled with early fan speculation that Fett was female, led Peña to conceive the idea that Fett's previously unnamed child from the 2001 comic story "Outbid But Never Outgunned" was Vel, a daughter who at times masqueraded as her father.[3]
