Star Wars: Mara Jade

    (Dark Horse, 1998-1999)
™ and ©1998 Lucasfilm Ltd.

Mara Jade, who is introduced with this series, was one of the Emperor’s “hands”: special agents commanded telepathically by the Emperor and dedicated to doing his bidding. She had been sent undercover to penetrate Jabba the Hutt’s lair and to kill Luke Skywalker. When that opportunity was lost to her, she was given a new mission: to kill the head of an insurrectionist organization called the Black Nebula. Using her cunning, fighting skills, and abilities with the Force, it seemed that she was able to accomplish her mission admirably. But it turned out that the being she killed was an imposter. What’s more, her failure to waylay Skywalker led to the death of the Emperor himself (in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi). Still reeling from the psychic shock of the Emperor’s death, she was branded a traitor to the Empire and cast into prison. From there, Mara would need to escape—and find a new life for herself now that the Emperor she served was no more.
