Deceit. The Sith are infamous for it. The Jedi Knew not to trust them fully, but not even they were prepared for just how far the Sith Empire would go. During peace talks the Republic Senate could not say no to, hard pressed as they were on so many fronts, the Sith struck at Coruscant, the Capital ecumenopolis of the Republic.
In a mere two days, more than a hundred thousand people died and the injured were beyond count. The wounds to infrastructure were massive. Rebuilding costs unimaginable. Though the peace treaty was signed, it left a bitter taste in the mouth of any servant of the republic. The terms, negotiated with the release and non-obliteration of Coruscant as a condition, were virtually dictated by the Sith.
Many citizens of the republic and members of the now-shrunken senate blamed the Jedi for these poor terms. How could they not have seen this coming? Why could they not stop this assault? Few of these cared that the Coruscanti Jedi Temple now lay in ruins, with hundreds of those who were within dead. They cared not that the Jedi on Coruscant were hit hardest of all.
Like so much else, this is known history. The story that has not been told however, is that of the Jedi who were within, but who were not part of the Temple Guards. Even picking through what was possible of the Temple ruins, it was clear to the Jedi that scores of bodies would never be recovered. Where the ruins were not filled in with rubble, they were disconnected or filled with molten slag. It would take months to dig through the debris. All the Jedi within the temple at the time of the Sacking were therefore declared deceased. They were wrong.
A significant number of these, both Padawans and younger knights, were not killed. Their fate was much worse. They were captured alive. Interred upon the Terminus-class Destroyer Hâsk, they are now the victims of Sith experiments. Only a few questions remain...
Will they remain true to the light side? or will they turn to the dark side? Which are you? Prisoner or Captor? Jedi or Sith?
