At long last, Garos IV is almost within the reach of the New Republic – and vice versa. For Alex Winger, the moment of truth – when she must reveal her true loyalties to her father – is at hand. But she has bigger problems, for it seems the Empire has put a Dark Jedi named Jaalib Brandl in charge of the evacuation of Garos – possibly the man who led the attack that destroyed her former life as Alex Turhaya, and probably the “dark man” she is seen torturing her in her nightmares. After an acting performance, Governor Winger introduces Alex to Jaalib. Brandl draws Alex and Winger to a safehouse when the hangout Chado’s Pub is blown up by what he claims were Rebels or underground members – but Alex senses was really him.
In the safehouse, Alex puts down her father’s curses against the resistance for the bombing – and finally reveals herself to be one of them. She leaves him to consider her words, only to be lured out of the safehouse by Brandl. He reveals to her that he blew up the pub as a message to the Empire; that he no longer wants any part of them or this war. In addition, the way he will set that separation in stone is to kill Alex and her father. He cuts her arm deeply with his lightsaber, then laughs as the nearby safehouse explodes – Governor Winger is dead, he says, but he now has other plans for the Jedi wannabe. She staggers back to the destroyed safehouse, to find her father still alive but horribly wounded. She can not help him, and Brandl will not help him. Given no other choice, Alex gives herself over to the Dark Side to heal her foster father. With that horrible act, Brandl leaves her and Governor Winger on Garos as the New Republic finally arrives…

This story occurs approximately 11 years after the Battle of Yavin.
