This story takes place one month after the events of [link=[url]http://boards.theforce.net/beyond_the_saga/b10477/22242853/p1/][/url] The Age of Heroes[/link], approximately 32 ABY, known as the beginning of the "Raithian Wars." A period that has long been ignored. It tells the story of the rise of the Raithians, and the Jedi from the Skywalker bloodline who became "Darth Hâvok."

Instead, with the fierce energy crackling inside her, she used her free hand to bat the weapon aside, then raised her hand to her attacker and released the dark power inside. A fork of lightning crackled into existence a few centimeters beyond her glove tips, then blasted a hole through the Yuuzhan Vong's chest and hurled him onto the rubble pile smoking and motionless." — Jaina Solo in Star by Star. "I tell you this: though neither he nor they yet know it, he is the greatest of all the Jedi. Jacen Solo is the living Jedi dream. Even without the Force, he is more dangerous than you can possibly imagine."— Vergere, Traitor. "No. You make you angry. People die; you are angry because you could not save them...their deaths are inscribed on you. Death comes to call. You cannot hold water in your hands for long. It leaks away, goes where it is meant to go. To the soil and sky. To ions, and then to space, where stars are born." "That's poetic, Master Ikrit, but it's not an answer. My grandfather was Darth Vader, and he killed billions. But that was after decades of the dark side. I'm only sixteen, and look what I've done. Darth Vader would be proud." — Ikrit and Anakin Solo, The Edge of Victory: Conquest. Special thanks to jagsredlady for her betawork and guidance.
