Sek'nos Rath is a major character in Dawn of the Jedi. Sek'nos was featured on the cover of Dawn of the Jedi: Force Storm #3. Remember that? That issue hit the stands in the April to May 2012 period. Is it time to remember Sek'nos Rath and his role in the three story arcs of Dawn of the Jedi? Spoiler: Force Storm #3 Cover Image Sek'nos came from a family of force healers. The matriarch of the Sek clan, Temple Master Miarta Sek, his grandmother, raised Sek'nos and taught him the healing arts of the force. Sek'nos's grandfather Thok Rath is also a Je'Daii master and helped raise Sek'nos. Young Sek'nos yearns for adventure, to be like the storied Je'Daii, past and present. Miarta and the Sek clan came from a family of pureblood Sith, castaways, galactic representatives of their home planets, brought over to Tython in the Deep Core on board the Tho Yor in approximately 36,453 BBY. Sith Purebloods from Book of Sith As Temple Master of QiGong Kesh, Miarta Sek teaches the Je'daii to hone their abilities in mental and sensory uses of the force. Students come to Temple QiGong Kesh to hone their force skills through mental, physical, and sensory challenges. Like all other temple masters, she guides students in the force towards becoming Je'Daii. Force Storm Issue #2 shows the Temple QiGong Kesh is built from a natural rock cavern in the silent desert. The sand in the silent desert is one of the great mysteries of Tython by having the property of nullifying all sound. Spoiler: Temple Master of QiGong Kesh, Miarta Sek In Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void, brother and sister Je'Daii students Lanoree and Dalien Brock journeyed to QiGong Kesh and traversed the silent desert. At Temple QiGong Kesh, Lanoree Brock expanded her abilities in the force. She trained under Je'Daii instructor Ter'Cay, a human male. Spoiler: Lanoree Brock as a Je'Daii Ranger We are introduced to Sek'nos Rath as he conducts a force experiment in Force Storm Issue #2. He suffers some minor burns as a result. As he is conducting the experiment, a certain someone seems to show up out of nowhere. Will the Je'Daii on Tython ever be the same? Sek'nos's grandparents, Miarta and Thok, step in with a brief cameo and give him a reprimand. Spoiler: Force Storm #2, Sek'Nos Rath at QiGong Kesh Temple Sek'nos continues to recite the Je'daii philosophies of balance throughout the three story arcs. Faced with the necessity of dispensing with the Rakata menace up to Force War Issue #5, Sek'nos is put into the situation of having to walk a tough line against Force Hound Trill. As he comes to the realization that Tython has been turned into a staging ground for the Rakata, Sek'nos continues to fight for the Je'Daii and expose the galactic-reaching plot of the Rakata. In the events of the Dawn of the Jedi, Sek'nos Rath is at the Je'Daii rank of Journeyer. I hope this thread can be a place to discuss Sek'nos Rath and his role in Dawn of the Jedi. Also, that the Sek clan are Sith purebloods who are descendants from Sith brought over on the Tho Yor is worthy of discussion.
