He stretched out farther into the Force, touching Tahiri again. She was in a dark place and he felt pain, or the fading of pain. He couldn’t tell where.
“Anakin”
That startled him. His name rang like a H’kig chime, nothing fuzzy about it.
“I’m coming Tahiri,” He whispered.
“Anakin”…but the sense of the words dissolved into emotion. Fear, grief, hope. Wordlessly he reached for her, to give her the equivalent of the squeeze on the hand, and found himself instead in a tight, desperate embrace.
“I’ll find you,” he projected to her. “Just hang on.”NJO-Edge of Victory I by Greg Keyes

Darth Caedus

A former Jedi and defender during the Yuuzhan Vong war, he worked to a position in the Galactic Alliance leadership during the civil war with Corellia. He was into accepting Sith Training by a woman known as Lumiya. Several Jedi died at his hand after he chose to use the Dark Side, and he also imitated the Empire’s earlier mass destruction by lighting Kashyyyk’s forests afire. He may have originally joined the dark side to protect his family but ultimately it lead to their betrayal.
