[Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic]
A Guide to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic comic book series.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was a 55 issue comic book series written by John Jackson Miller and published by Dark Horse Comics. The story takes place some 3,963 years years before the Battle of Yavin, during The Mandalorian Wars of The Old Republic era. These wars erupted after two decades of relative peace following the Great Sith War and was set in motion by the ambitious Mandalore the Ultimate, who reconsolidated the Mandalorian clans under the Neo-Crusader banner. They were fought between Mandalorian forces hoping to expand their colonies beyond the Outer Rim Territories and the Galactic Republic, which feared further incursions.
Amid such uncertain times, radical new factions began to coalesce within the Jedi Order. An outspoken Jedi Knight, who would become known in the popular media as "The Revanchist," warned of the danger posed by the Mandalorian clans. He lobbied for the Jedi Order to take an active role in the Republic's war effort, but the Jedi High Council was hesitant to be drawn into another armed conflict. While the Revanchist concerned himself with the Mandalorians, the famed Jedi seer Krynda Draay focused her attention on the Sith. Draay was embittered by her failure to predict the reemergence of the Sith, and by the loss of her husband, sister, and former Jedi Master during the resulting Great Sith War. The war with the Sith had gravely depleted the Jedi ranks and there were few remaining Masters who were capable of training the next generation in the ways of the Force. But the Jedi managed to convince Krynda Draay to train a new class of seers for the Order, but she had greater ambitions. With the aid of Haazen, a failed Padawan who had served her husband, she quietly founded a Jedi splinter group known as the Covenant. In the following decades, she and her students developed the organization into a vast, clandestine operation dedicated to preventing the Sith from ever rising to power again.
Unfortunately, a vision by one of the Convenant has tragic consequences for a group of young Padawans on the eve of their knighthood into the Jedi Order. While another, Zayne Carrick, finds himself framed for a crime he did not commit and on the run from the Jedi Order. Discovering unexpected new allies, including amongst those considered to be enemies, he uncovers the truth behind the Covenant. But his attempts to prove his innocence and enlighten the Council to the existence of the Convenant result in a shocking and terrible event that threatens to change the Jedi Order forever...
