Born to Shmi Skywalker he was a slave on Tatooine until his ninth year. But Anakin Skywalker went a long way. Freed from slavery by the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn Anakin trained under Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi after Jinn's death at the hands of Darth Maul, and became a Jedi Knight just at the eve of the Clone Wars. Ever since he had met her as a nine-year-old it was Anakin's firm belief that he was destined to marry the former Queen of Naboo, Padmé Naberrie, and he was overjoyed when she answered his feelings when they met again ten years later. Their marriage though was overshadowed by Anakin's paranoia. The young Jedi Knight rightfully suspected Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, fomerly Senator of Naboo, of planning a coup. In a foolish gamble Anakin Skywalker challenged the Chancellor and took a deep fall into darkness. Now known as Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, Skywalker was caught in a tight net that obscured his vision. Dark times fell over the galaxy. Only two decades later, by sheer chance, did the light manage to reach him once more. But in that long struggle he managed to redeem everything he had lost, including his father's name. Now Anakin Skywalker, son of Shmi Skywalker and Alamys Jorka, has assumed the role of guardian, as Cor'dan, and serves the Sith Empress Yana Dar and everyone else who may catch his attention.

One of the brightest of Naboo Padmé Naberrie was elected administrator of Naboo's capital Theed at the tender age of twelve. Two years later she became Queen Amidala, ruler of the Naboo citizens. Her young career was challenged very soon by the Trade Federation's occupation of her planet. But her diplomatic and strategic skills, along with adept allies, helped her to master that crisis with bravado. A decade later, in a time of relative peace, Padmé Naberrie had reliquished her seat to Queen Jamillia and served her people in the Galactic Senate. And found that a dear friend had grown up and turned into more than a friend. Although five years his senior Padmé patiently educated her husband, Anakin Skywalker, in the ways of politics, and unknowingly unleashed a destructive storm that would devour almost the entire Jedi Order. Two decades later, after years of hiding and always on the run, Padmé found her family again and she is now head of the Council of Naboo.

Luke Skywalker

Homeworld: Tatooine

Species: Human

Gender: Male

Weapon: Lightsaber, Good Faith

Vehicle: Morning Glory

Affiliation: Council of Naboo

Reference: The Art of War, The Storm

Raised by Anakin's step-brother, Owen Lars, and his wife, Beru, on Tatooine, Luke inherited his father's love for mechanics and his piloting skills. Grown into a kind and caring young man he lost his step-parents to the Empire and swore revenge on the perpetrators. Under the careful, but alas very brief, guidance of Obi-Wan Kenobi he made his first lessons in serving the Force. Shortly after the battle of Yavin 4 Luke started training under the Jedi Master Yoda on Dagobah, where he also met his father, although at that time he did not know him to be just that. A short while later the young Jedi, still fueled by vengeful thoughts, challenged Darth Vader to a fateful duel, in whose wake he learned the truth about his parentage. Since then he has grown into a more mature personality, and a true Jedi. Having faced his trials he has found peace and love for himself, and come to a greater understanding of the Force. Like his mother, he serves the Council of Naboo.

Nuron Sarin

Homeworld: Myrrk

Species: Zabrak

Gender: Female

Height: 1.71 meters

Weapon: Lightsaber

Vehicle: Morning Glory

Affiliation: Sith Empire

Reference: The Art of War, The Storm

The niece of Khameir Sarin always was a bit wild. Orphaned on the planet Myrk she had to fend for herself very early in her life. It was here that she met the Dark Lord of the Sith at the tender age of ten standard years. Darth Vader, as well as Chi'in, were impressed by the little Zabrak girl's resolve, and the Sith decided to take her with them to Korriban. Since Chi'n was burdened with other duties the Dark Lord declared Nuron to be his own apprentice. Yet lack of time on his part resulted in lack of training on hers. Bereft of a mentor Nuron tried to teach herself, in watching the others and taking advice from the eldest of the Council. A combination that almost proved fatal. Luckily she had a guardian spirit in the shape of Chi'in. Now she has found her true love in Luke Skywalker, and they live together on either Byss or Naboo, depending on each other's respective assignments, since Nuron has retained her ties to the Sith, whereas Luke has chosen to assume a more neutral position.

Princess Leia Organa

Homeworld: Alderaan

Species: Human

Gender: Female

Height: 1.50 meters

Weapon: Blaster, Diplomacy

Vehicle: Millennium Falcon

Affiliation: New Republic

Reference: The Art of War, The Storm

The Princess was the only child of her foster-parents, Viceroy Bail Organa and Saché Organa, of Alderaan. Her diplomatic skills were acquired in a life-time of studying protocol and politics, and that training served her very well when she fell into enemy hands on a secluded planet. Faced with her greatest enemy, Darth Vader, she has learned that some things are not as bad as they seem, including the Dark Lord. She was the first to learn of Vader's grand scheme in bringing the Emperor down, and she took that challenge in a stride. Assisting the traitorous Imperial forces Leia learned the truth about Darth Vader and accepted it. As her relationship to her father deepened she grew into a very capable leader. But that is not all that life has in store for her. After the storm that has ravaged the Unknown Regions upon the Yuuzhan Vong's invasion, she his now married to Captain Han Solo and is the happy mother of twins. She continues to serve the New Republic as Minister of State.

Han Solo

Homeworld: Corellia

Species: Human

Gender: Male

Height: 1.80 meters

Weapon: Blaster

Vehicle: Millennium Falcon

Affiliation: New Republic

Reference: The Art of War, The Storm

Han started out as a mercenary for the Alliance, but someone realized that there is indeed a heart of gold underneath that scruffy exterior. He had never any trouble admitting to his love for Princess Leia, and when that love was challenged he fought for it as valiantly as he fought for the Alliance. Together with his friend and co-pilot, the Wookiee Chewbacca, Han Solo was one of the most valuable assets in Vader's scheme. After the war against the Empire, he has worked for the Dark Lord on some assignments, but his true loyalty was to the princess, whom he has married recently.

Alamys Jorka

Homeworl: Coruscant

Species: Human

Gender: Male

Height: 1.9 meters

Weapon: Lightsaber

Vehicle: Jedi Starfighter

Affiliation: Jedi Order

Reference: Backlash, The Storm

The Jedi Master Alamys Jorka was among the most powerful of his generation. He was reknowned for his strict interpretation of the Jedi Code and his devotion to the Jedi Order. A master swordsman and skilled tactician, he restlessly followed the Code's directive of acquiring knowledge. One of his last discoveries was the grave of Inyo Di'vitt, creator of the Motha Virus. This discovery sealed his fate. He was tracked down by Darth Nexus and his student Darth Sidious, and captured. After having been deliberately infected with the virus by the Sith, Alamys Jorka wandered the galaxy in search of a remedy. On Ylesia he met a young woman named Shmi Skywalker and left her brain-washed and pregnant with his son, Anakin. Alamys Jorka was captured and killed by Darth Sidious shortly after the Sith Lord's rise to Emperor.

Species: Human

Gender: Male

Height: 1.74 meters

Weapon: Blaster

Vehicle: Speeder bike

Affiliation: Sith Empire

Reference: The Art of War, The Storm

Formerly a combat trainer and Gunnery Sergeant this Corellian has an almost legendary reputation, which is actually extremely well founded. Making the impossible happen is his hallmark. Jixton, called Jix by his friends, lost his belief in the Empire early on and refused to assist in the massacre of innocents. He was imprisoned on Kessel, awaiting a court martial, but managed to escape. While hiding from his hunters on the planet Aridus he met up with the Dark Lord of the Sith, who had been caught in the backlash of a trap he had set for his son, Luke Skywalker. To protect the natives of Aridus Jix agreed to serve as the Dark Lord's agent, and over time he has grown quite fond of his employer, to Darth Vader's great annoyance. During the war against the Yuuzhan Vong he has found another victim to annoy, to Anakin Skywalker's relief. The Corellian is now official special ambassador to the Chiss Court on Csilla and a dear friend of the Chiss Emperor Ja'han'mandana, who enjoys the Corellian's wits as much as Anakin Skywalker ever did.

Mara Jade

Homeworld: Coruscant

Species: Human

Gender: Female

Height: 1.70 meters

Weapon: BlasTech

Vehicle: Whatever is available

Affiliation: Sith Empire

Reference: The Art of War, The Storm

Mara Jade was found at a very early age by the Emperor and raised to become his Hand. As the Emperor's agent Mara had a great insight into the Empire, but she did not realize that her master's caring for her was as false as the promises he had made to the people. When the Dark Lord of the Sith chose to betray the Emperor Mara was forced to choose her side of the struggle. In the end she learned more about herself and the galaxy than she had ever thought possible under Palpatine's tutelage, and her mentor in that learning process was no other than Grand Admiral Thrawn. And, admittedly, a very special Corellian.

Chi'in clan Rim'kai

Homeworld: Honoghr

Species: Noghri

Gender: Male

Height: 1.40 meters

Weapon: The Force, Combat Skills

Vehicle: Ardana Ver

Affiliation: Sith Empire, Noghri

Reference: The Art of War, The Storm

When Darth Vader was initiated as the Dark Lord of the Sith the Noghri warrior Chi'in became his apprentice. Gradually they formed a deep friendship, and that friendship saved the Dark Lord's life on several occasions. Over time Chi'in grew into a most adept Force-user, and when Darth Vader was forced to concentrate all of his strength on battling the growing rebellion, the Noghri, now a full Sith Lord, took over training the next generation of warriors. His first student was a male Falleen named Cronn, his second the human Naas Deron, the third the Twi'lek female Puket, and his last the Chiss warrior Al'than'erudo. Only Naas Deron and Al'than'erudo survived the war, though. Chi'in always looked beyond his own tasks, and took up the challenge when the Head of the Council on Korriban, Roj Kell, threatened the Dark Lord's legacy. His insight and calm competence serve Chi'in well, and he will lead the Sith on their path into the future.

Grand Admiral Thrawn/Syndic Mith'raw'noruodo

Homeworld: Csilla

Species: Chiss

Gender: Male

Height: 1.80 meters

Weapon: Blaster

Vehicle: SD Hanor Val

Affiliation: Chiss Empire

Reference: The Art of War, The Storm

His real name forgotten by Imperial anti-alien protocol Mith'raw'noruodo entered service to the Emperor with the ultimate goal of protecting his own people, the Chiss, with the help of the Empire. A highly intelligent military genius Grand Admiral Thrawn was the honored adversary in Darth Vader's battle against the Empire, and ultimately the winner of the game. His obsession with information is one of his few vices, and also one of his greatest strengths. A strength he shares with Roj Kell whom he has met in a contest of wills and intellect. It is not clear which of them emerged victorious from that battle, but it seems clear that both have learned from that encounter. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion the Grand Admiral again had a chance to prove his brilliance, and he has been restored to his rank as Syndic officially, acting as special ambassador and fleet commander of the Chiss Navy.

Excelling at the Imperial Academy early on Tomas was destined for a great military career. His superior skills gained him many promotions and recommendations, but the greatest reward for ten years of excellent service in the Imperial Navy was to be his becoming captain of Darth Vader's brand-new flagship, the Super-class Star Destroyer Executor. Unfortunately circumstances changed and Piett was assigned to Grand Admiral Thrawn. Coordinating the Navy's efforts in defeating the Rebel Alliance from there the admiral demanded absolute loyalty to the Empire, something Tomas was loath to give. Although he admired the Grand Admiral, Tomas reserved his loyalty for the Dark Lord of the Sith. That, combined with his discontentment with the way the Empire was handling the war and something more personal, led him to join the Alliance in the end. For a short time he served as Chief Military Advisor of the New Republic, but certain events made him choose another career, that of a politician. Tomas Piett is now elected president of the Confederate Zone, whose founding was his own achievement. He is married to the artist Raisa Tobyn.

Lorth Needa

Height: 1.75 meters

Weapon: Blaster

Vehicle: SD Starhammer

Affiliation: New Republic

Reference: The Art of War, The Storm

As close friend of Tomas Piett the former captain of the Star Destroyer Avenger never brought attention on himself through his brilliance. Yet his quiet competence and leadership qualities did not remain hidden to Darth Vader. As commander of the Dark Lord's first flagship, Avenger, Needa was fiercely loyal to the Sith Lord, and he deserted the Empire on Darth Vader's orders to assist the Alliance in bringing the Dark Lord's plan to success. He turned into a valued counselor to the Alliance Command and especially Princess Leia. On a diplomatic assignment Needa sacrificed his mission to save Padmé Naberrie from falling into the Empire's hands. His loyalty to the Dark Lord is unfaltering even in the face of death. In the war against the Yuuzhan Vong he had a chance to work tightly together with Grand Admiral Thrawn and handled his task with creativity and insight. Today Lorth Needa is one of the New Republic Navy's most prominent and adept commanders and leads High Command.

As the illegitimate daughter of Darth Sidious, Yana has had an interesting childhood, first on Naboo, then Coruscant, before she left to spend some years on her own in the Corporate Sector. To avoid her father she founded her own small enterprise as information broker, a group that soon rivalled that of Talon Karrde. Unknown to her, though, her father had included her in his own scheme, and she was captured by Grand Admiral Tious Markhan later on, to serve as a puppet-Empress. The actions of two Imperial Special Agents deployed by her father, and the interference of Roj Kell, spared her that unworthy fate, though, and she was declared Empress shortly thereafter. She defended that claim against both Imperial dissenters and the Yuuzhan Vong and has now extended her realm to found the new Sith Empire. Though courted by such illustre men as Emperor Ja'han'mandana, Yana has chosen to marry someone who might not match her royal lineage, but her heart and committment.

Born a true Sith Roj Kell experienced the conquest of his people by the Dark Jedi first hand, when he met the fallen Jedi Exar Kun on Yavin 4. Intrigued by the man's power the young Sith magician agreed to become Kun's apprentice. But after having fought side by side with his master in the war against the Jedi Roj Kell abandoned Exar Kun to seek his own future. Without rank or title he had a hard time standing against the Sith Order, but he made up for that with his exceptional understanding of the Force and Life. Over the course of three thousand years Roj Kell observed the rise and fall of the Jedi and Sith, never content, always moving on. He was as ruthless as he was perceptive, and an enigma to anyone who ever met him. As teacher to Darth Sidious he finally met his match, but Roj Kell harbored a deep resentment against being controlled by others. He cherished his freedom as much as he cherished life, and in a last lesson he showed his former student the true meaning of mastery, before he found his own peace.

A reknowned Jedi Master of her time Belana Jen followed a vision to Dantooine. The vision had shown her the key to defeat the Sith, and that key was a lone Sith, Roj Kell, who the Jedi hunters managed to capture on said planet. He was brought to Coruscant for questioning, but refused to reveal anything. Although a fierce warrior Belana did not condone torture of any kind, not even in breaking the prisoner. But when he began playing a cruel game with the Jedi she was given no choice. Accepting the challenge Belana resolved to use the man's wits against himself, and to do that she had to get to know him better. But Belana felt herself falling in love with Roj Kell, and although she was aware of the danger her eventual success in breaking his mind put her at ease. As it would turn out though, she had merely played into his hands. When sentenced to death Kell managed to convince Belana to grant him one last wish, an opportunity he used to escape, taking the Jedi Master as his hostage. Belana Jen became Roj Kell's lover and served as his apprentice for six years. Her subsequent death at Kell's own hands would lead to the ancient Sith Lord's defeat some two thousand years later.

Of indeterminable, but certainly long-lived, species Yoda soon became one of the most important figures of Jedi history since the end of the Sith. A Jedi Master already at the relatively young age of fifty Yoda distinguished himself through his insight and wisdom and soon took what seemed his predestined position as teacher. A hundred years after attaining the title of Jedi Master Yoda was challenged to an ethical riddle by the ancient Sith Lord Roj Kell. Intrigued by the man's philosophy and history Yoda spared his life. A mistake that would haunt him seven hundred years later. But Master Yoda prevailed and managed to overcome the ancient Sith's power in a last duel on Korriban.

Born and raised on Naboo Palpatine started studying the Sith Lore and History at the age of fourteen. Although a brilliant youth he did not manage to enter the elite schools of the planet, and his resentment for that rebuke grew very deep. He was first apprenticed to the Whiphid Darth Nexus, Zekk Xyron, who was 'killed' by Jedi Master Alamys Jorka. With a lot of patience and careful manipulation, Sidious was able to carve himself a political career that would eventually lead him to glory. In his quest he enlisted the help of the ancient Sith Lord Roj Kell, who was intrigued by the young man's skills. Later Kell became the focus of Palpatine's resentment, but in this case the young Sith loaded more on his plate than he could handle.

Irek was indeed a combination of the two men, yet this only led to internal conflicts that mirrored the real-life conflicts fought out between Sidious and Kell. This was also the reason for Irek's growing madness and his plunge into darkness. Feeling torn, the boy found hismself unable to cope with reality.
