Nar Shaddaa Sith kidnap a Jedi in Yavin 4

May 29, 2013

Reporters of the Galactic News Network meet a Jedi in Yavin 4.

Starwind in alert

Yavin 4: A Jedi was kidnapped in Yavin 4 and taken to Nar Shaddaa until she eventually escaped. Maia Celaeno, from the Kalway Order of the Jedi was captured by two Sith from the New Sith Order (NSO) in Yavin 4’s spaceport. They brought their captive to a detention area and tortured her using a Sith artefact, notably transplanting a hot shard in her back that never cooled. She reported the Sith Lady Keres wanted to give the Jedi a message. After a few days, she was offered to a Hutt of Nar Shaddaa and forced to serve. Fortunately, someone helped her to escape. She was hospitalised in the Jedi Enclave of Dantooine and had the torture chip removed.

This event might be related to the struggle between the Jedi of the Galactic Liberation Alliance (GLA) and the Dark Side adepts in Nar Shaddaa. Even if they share some relation, Yavin 4’s Jedi has apparently no direct link with the GLA. Some Jedi, such as Maia, promote a way similar to the GLA, though. Such an issue might pull the Academy of Yavin 4 in the conflict. A reaction to this case should currently be discussed by their Council, although its policy is often opaque.
