During the time of the Republic, the Jedi Council guided the Jedi Knights as they upheld their values of peace and justice throughout the galaxy -- and the Sith waited in hiding for the right time to reveal their existence and take revenge . . . Collected here are tales of that time, shortly before The Phantom Menace: early missions of Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi; missions full of foreshadowing and increasing danger for noble members of the Jedi Council Mace Windu and Ki-Adi-Mundi; the Anzati-linked origin of Jedi-assassination specialist and bounty hunter Aurra Sing; and, last, Sith apprentice Darth Maul's own mission to clear the criminal system of any adversaries who could potentially hamper the rise and return of the Sith!
