Internal flap Edit A storm is coming, and there is no escape. Revan : hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians — and returned a disciple of the dark side , bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but the price of redemption was high. His memories have been erased. What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Somehow he stumbled across a terrible secret that threatens the very existence of the Republic.
On the planet Dromund Kaas and unbeknownst to the Republic, the Sith Empire has rebuilt itself after being driven away by the Republic thousands of years ago. A Sith Warrior named Scourge is caught up in a rivalry between members of the Sith's Dark Council and is eventually employed by Darth Nyriss to root out traitors and threats to her safety.
Scourge carries out his duties, despite growing concerns that Nyriss is trying to have him killed. After earning Nyriss's trust, the Sith Master confides in Scourge her plan to overthrow the Emperor as she believes he is insane and will bring ruin to the Sith Empire.
She takes Scourge to the Emperor's homeworld of Nathema , which he finds completely devoid of the Force. Nyriss explains that a thousand years ago, a Sith Lord impregnated a farmer's wife who gave birth to the Emperor. Known then as Lord Vitiate, he eventually killed his parents once the truth of his parentage was revealed and through violence and terror eventually drove out the ruling Sith Lord.
After the Sith Empire lost their war against the Republic it was Lord Vitiate who picked up the pieces and held the Empire together. Scheming to obtain immortality , he and other Sith performed a ritual that killed every living thing on the planet the other Sith included and transferred their life energy to Vitiate.
Nyriss fears that the Emperor plans to invade the Republic and risk the stability of the Empire as well as the well being of the remaining Sith species, who were mercilessly hunted down by the Jedi.
After locating Mandalore's mask, Revan learns of Nathema from a recording he left behind that told him that Mandalore the Ultimate was approached by Sith to attack the Republic. Revan's droid, T3-M4 , manages to eventually repair the ship and head back towards Republic space. The book then jumps forward four years , right after the events of the Dark Wars.
Although jealous of the relationship Meetra and Revan had, she is relieved to hear that Meetra is set on retracing Revan's path and finding him.
She arrives on Nathema and after searching through a municipal building learns of Dromund Kaas and sets out for the planet. Arriving on Dromund Kaas, she passes herself off as a mercenary and eventually makes contact with Scourge who, after seeing Nathema and talking with Revan, has agreed that the Emperor is a danger to the Sith and must be stopped.
Did Revan really need to be praised through the roof even more? What annoys me even more about this is the fact he built up the Revan character just so he can make the Sith Emperor seem even more powerful than Revan and hence make him out to be the Sidious of TOR. But it gets better, Drew's reasoning for killing off Surik in the most 'Hey Avellone, take your game and character and shove it up your ' way was that she was a sacrifice needed because Scourge had a vision of another Jedi the Jedi Knight class killing the Emperor and yay the galaxy gets saved!
Drew, you butchered a character, butchered an entire game, and all just so you could make the Emperor of this game, your new baby, seem even more OP and ridiculous than your first baby, Revan.
I am glad you have retired from writing for BioWare and hopefully Star Wars, because you pulled a Traviss and made my favourite character nothing, just so you could wear your Revanite costume again, and then overshadow another game with your baby.
If you had actually learned the history of the Exile, and who she was, instead of reading the very first part of her Wookieepedia page and spent more time on writing the novel, this could have been well done. Now I will move on to why I think you butchered your own character as well.
Now I like the Revan character, I really do, just not this over-hyped and over-rated character you attempted to make him into. Revan's droid, T3-M4 manages to eventually repair the ship and head back towards Republic space.
The book then jumps forward three years, right after the events of The Sith Lords. Although jealous of the relationship Meetra and Revan had, she is relieved to hear that Meetra is set on retracing Revan's path and finding him.
She arrives on Nathema and after searching through a municipal building learns of Dromund Kaas and sets out for the planet. Arriving on Dromund Kaas, she passes herself off as a mercenary and eventually makes contact with Scourge who after seeing Nathema and talking with Revan has agreed that the Emperor is a danger to the Sith and must be stopped. After leaking information to the Emperor that Nyriss was a traitor, the Emperor decides to purge the entire Dark Council and sets his personal army upon them.
During the chaos Scourge and Meetra manage to free Revan from his cell. Meetra gives Revan the mask that he wore during the Mandalorian Wars; upon wearing the mask all of Revan's memories return to him.
After the end of the Mandalorian Wars, Revan and his friend Malak went out in search of the Sith Empire, but due to their corruption during the war, they were made susceptible to the Emperor's will and were converted to the Dark Side and sent back to weaken the Republic so the Sith Empire could return and take over, sparking the events of Knights of the Old Republic and The Sith Lords.
Meetra and Scourge are attacked by Nyriss, but before she can kill them Revan approaches them and effortlessly kills the Sith Lord by directing her force lightning back into her.
After resting and watching a message from Bastila and his son Vaner, the three set out to eliminate the Emperor. Scourge, however, is troubled by visions he cannot explain, of a Jedi Knight and the Emperor. The three fight their way to the Emperor's throne room and Revan engages the Emperor in combat. Meanwhile, Meetra and Scourge fights the guards.
