|“||Foward, Syn. Only way we can go. My father always said, "We take what is given." Felt like all the galaxy ever handed me was darkness and grief. Like Krayt, I took what was given--and gave into my anger...wrapped the anger around me so close, it blocked out the light. Suffocated myself in death and darkness until I forgot how to live. Tried to cut myself off from the Force so I didn't have to feel anything. Tried to make my heart a void... But nothing's a void--not even in space. I've seen the way all things connect. Energy flows through everything in the galaxy. Creating life. Healing it. As long as the galaxy exists, life will find a way. There is no death--There is only the Force.||„|
|~ Cade Skywalker from Legacy - War #6|
As a young student at the Jedi Praxeum, Cade Skywalker showed great potential. His life was torn apart when Darth Krayt assumed control of the Empire and saw to the elimination of the Jedi. Cade's father was killed in the resulting battle, and Cade himself withdrew from the Force and adopted a new life as a smuggler. Cade was constantly haunted by visions of Luke Skywalker and the knowledge of the Jedi he should be. Luckily, he had a steady supply of death sticks to block these visions out.
Cade found that he could only hide for so long, though. Darth Krayt knows of Cade's true power – the ability to use the Force to bring the dead and dying back to life. Krayt desperately needs Cade's power, and he's none too shy about seeking it out. The two have already traded blades once, and it seems a foregone conclusion that destiny will pit them against each other again.
