According to legend, the Sith are always two: a master and an apprentice. It was not always this way. A thousand years ago the Sith were many, and they battled endlessly with the Jedi Army of Light. Lord Kaan ruled the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness and sought the destruction of Lord Hoth and his Jedi followers. Recruited into the war by a scout, three friends venture onto the battleground and march into destinies far greater and different than any of them could have ever imagined...
As the war between the Jedi Army of Light and the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness rages, Tomcat, Bug, and Rain: three cousins drawn to the battle in search of adventure; find that they are in for more than they expected. Far more. Brought to the planet Ruusan by a scout gathering troops for the war, the family desperately tries to stay together in the midst of an epic war between good and evil. But individual desires may prove greater than family ties as the three seek their fates among the battlefields of Ruusan and head toward a destiny controlled by the Sith Lord Darth Bane!
War rages on the battle torn planet of Ruusan. Tomcat and his cousin Bug finally reach the Jedi camp only to find that things aren't quite as they expected. The glorious Jedi Knights from the folktales Tomcat used to listen to weren't so common, so... human. And to make matters worse Tomcat's other cousin, Rain, is still lost in the wilds of Ruusan. As hopes flicker in the Jedi camp, there is conflict in the ranks of the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness. Lord Kaan and Darth Bane clash over how to conduct the Sith campaign: indicating signs of greater trouble to come!
The war between Jedi and Sith continues to rage on the planet of Ruusan, consuming all in its path. The battle between good and evil has claimed soldiers on both sides and now the rage boils over and starts to consume the planet itself. Ruusan's forests and countryside become victims of the war along with innocent bystanders and the native creatures called Bouncers which occupy the sky above the planet. In the midst of the firestorm, cousins Tomcat and Bug find it difficult to reach any common ground and continue to grow further apart. Meanwhile, their missing cousin Rain's Force powers grow as she struggles to find her way back to her family.
The devastated planet of Ruusan has endured much during the war between the Jedi Army of Light and the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness. Its forests have been decimated and its inhabitants mercilessly slaughtered. The war is not over yet and many more will suffer before it ends. Of three young cousins sent to Ruusan, one will willfully join with the dark, one will seek out the light, and one will fulfill a destiny that none could have possibly foreseen.
The war on Ruusan between the Jedi Army of Light and the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness all comes down to one event... An event that sends shockwaves across the galaxy and will forever change the relationship between good and evil. A devastating weapon of mass destruction will have a deadly effect on the planet, leaving those left living wishing they had perished with their comrades. Who shall live to see another day, and who will vanish into history?

This story occurs approximately 1,003 years before the Battle of Yavin.
