Characters[edit]

Protagonists[edit]

  • Shae Koda: A Human female from Dathomirian descent whose parents were killed in The Despot War. She has an incessant curiosity, which means she does not accept things on blind faith. She is young, brave, rash, and a bit reckless.[2]
  • Sek'nos Rath: A young Sith male (Sith refers to the species, not the Sith Order) whose parents are Je'daii (what the Jedi are called in this time period) diplomats who travel the system. He was raised by his maternal grandmother and paternal grandfather, who are both Je'daii masters. He is charming but also driven. He wants to do great things like Je'daii who came before him. He yearns for adventure and likes to push the envelope. He's bold, rowdy, and loves fun, weapons, and females of all types.[2]
  • Tasha Ryo: A female Twi'lek whose parents are Baron Volnos Ryo and Kora Ryo. She's often torn between her father and their clan and her mother and her Je'daii duties. She prefers not to use weapons, instead preferring Force techniques that use the Force as a weapon and a shield. She is very calm and emphatic. She looks before she leaps and tries to understand the repercussions of her actions.[2]
  • Xesh: A mysterious and powerful being, Rakatan slave called a Force Hound. His arrival on Tython sets the whole series in motion.[2]
