    Perhaps not, but the underlying meaning of the comment still stands. Jocasta's bold and outlandish claim is representative of the increasing arrogance of the Jedi Order at the time. No archive in the Galaxy is so complete that it contains records of every item that ever exists.

    I always assumed Jocasta was used to dealing with idiot younglings all day who expected the librarian to do everything before they even turned on the computer.

    "I'm looking for Book X by Master Soandsuch."
    "Master Soandsuch didn't write that book, but he did right this other one."
    "I don't want that one. I'm specifically looking for Book X by Master Soandsuch. Where can i find it?"
    "It... literally doesn't exist."
    "Someone told me it does. Where can I find Book X by Master..."

    Regarding the timeline of this first arc, can we conclude that it ends no later than 10 days after Order 66, i. e. covers the first 10 days of Vader in the suit?

    I consider her statement to be very ... unwise. Only an arrogant and short-sighted person would presume to know everything. It's supposed to suggest that the Jedi have lost their ways.

    I agree this may be less about Unlimited Powah! and more about Vader trying to outthink his opponent. Like literally the last arc had him versus Jedi Neo and lots of mass murder and gaining strength so now Vader has to use his brains. If she's hidden a secret inside the Dewey Decimal System, he's screwed.

    Nice issue.
    It would be cool if Jocasta actually gets captured by Vader and brought before Palpatine. Not sure if that'll happen though.

    Wow. So Rey is the offspring of Palpatine and Jocasta Nu. Who would've thought? :p

    That would be an interesting battle considering how powerful Vos has become.

    Seriously? I thought he was bloody awful. He makes it sound like a parody.

    You know, when you consider the mystery that shrouds Darth Vader within the Empire, you have to realize that this couldn't have been Palpatine's original plan. He was banking on having a whole, undamaged Anakin Skywalker as his Sith Apprentice.

    Darth Vader would have been the public face of the Empire. The young, handsome, dashing Hero with No Fear. The one Jedi Knight who was loyal to the Republic and saved the Chancellor from their treason. But after Mustafar and the catastrophic injuries that forever consigned Vader to a life within his fearsome black armour, Palpatine had to make the best of what he had.

    So Vader became the Emperor's shadowy enforcer. Going wherever the Emperor needed a mailed fist or a personal touch of terror.

    Yes, Palpatine had to settle. It was even said in the ROTS novelization
