Rebel Captain – and Jedi wannabe – Fable Astin is sent with the Harrier infiltration team to Nysza III to destroy an Imperial communications bunker before it can be completed. The task is completed – but at the cost of technical officer Arecelis Acosta. Even worse, his killer was a Dark Jedi named Vialco who easily humiliated her. Disgusted with herself, she accepts an invitation by co-pilot Deke Holman to check out a stage play called “For the Want of an Empire.” She finds the lead actor in that play, Jaalib Brandl, strangely intriguing – and strong in the Force. She meets with him after the play. That night, she has a horrible nightmare that leaves her awake with a burned hand – the Dark Side is eating away at her. Terrified at what may happen to her – especially if Vialco finds her again – she seeks out Jaalib. She trails him to Trulalis, where she finds him rehearsing the play “Uhl Eharl Khoeng” with his father, former Imperial Inquisitor Adalric Brandl. Jaalib will not help her, but Adalric will. Tutoring her in the ways of the Jedi – both light and dark. Jaalib slowly warms up to her, and takes her on a hike in the Khoehng Mountains. As she is truly starting to progress, Vialco arrives. After a difficult duel, the Dark Jedi lies at her feet, ready for the deathblow. Adalric tricks her into delivering that deathblow, then declares her ready to join the Dark Jedi. She has no way out – her ship has been blown up. However, she does have one last chance at salvation – Jaalib. 
He leads her into the mountains, to where Deke’s ship is waiting for her. With a final kiss, he bundles her off in the ship. As it takes off, he turns to face his father, who almost kills him… then stomps off in disgust. Jaalib rasps out the infamous line from “Uhl Eharl Khoenhg” – “Long… live… the king!” 

This story occurs approximately 1 year after the Battle of Yavin.
