Padawan Massacres of Taris!? -- *SPOILERS*

What the... !?

Has anyone read the KotOR comic book? If so, could you please shed some light on the situation seen here?

http://starwars.wikicities.com/wiki/...acres_of_Taris

Quoted from Star Wars-Wiki:
Quote:
Little is known of the Padawan Massacres of Taris, except that five Jedi Masters of Taris, including Lucien Draay and Q'anilia, was implicated in the deaths of four padawans on the day of their commencement to the rank of Jedi Knight, each his or her own. Draay's own padawan, Zayne Carrick was able to escape the massacre because of his tardiness.

Sounds like some people started a new comic series with Dark Horse based on the game. Cool idea.

To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, Dark Horse is completely relaunching its Star Wars publishing line. This series is the first of many new titles to come.

A new ongoing monthly series written by John Jackson Miller (Iron Man) and illustrated by Brian Ching (Star Wars Obsession), set four thousand years before the rise of the Empire and the fall of Anakin Skywalker (and eight years prior to the events in the Knights of the Old Republic video game).

Yes. But my question is this... why in the hell would they do such a thing?

I mean; here you have four padawans (not including Zayne) who think they are about to be Knighted. But, instead, they get a lightsaber through their guts, and by their very on master nonetheless!

What the heck kind of Jedi Masters are these? That's one of the most disturbing things I think I have ever seen. Even above the Order 66 scenes in Ep.III, because even that wasn't too unexpected...Palpatine was a Sith Lord. But these are Jedi Master slaughtering their own padawans. Though I wouldn't put much of the same thing past Vrook; that would be no suprise, really.

My only guess is that these masters are in league with the Sith, and will help them in taking over the planet. I don't know.

Though that little green master looks like the type of fishy character you couldn't trust. Or atleast that's the impression I got the first time I saw the interview article. And at first I thought Lucien Draay was Vrook until I read differently. Their looks, and attitude, resemble each other quite well.

We don't know. The first issue was published a couple of weeks ago, and pretty much ends with the panel displayed in your post above, Dakari. The second issue is, I think, out sometime this month. If you really must know the answer to your question, it seems that patience and a willingness to part with a few bucks every month for the next few months might be in order.

Motives are, at this particular point, completely unknown--could be that they're joining Revan's or Malak's Sith.

The Padawans were following Revan's ideals...

PRIME EDIT: You know better than that. This is a warning. More comments like that and you are gone.

What did the removed comment say? I didn't get a chance to see it. *

PS: The fact that they might have been following Revan's ideals gives them no authority to mutilate their own padawans - or any others' either.




* If the comment was deleted it's because it was something we don't want to see on the boards. There's no point in asking what it was and reposting it.... -D3

Yea, I forgot about it too. I'm definitly gonna pick this up.

Bah. This is why I could never get into comics. I hate cliffhangers. I might have to wait for a few issues to come out.

Very neat art-work too, by the way. Did you see the custom robes an all those jedi?

To bad it won't be in shops here until 2083

That's kind of why moderators aren't fun. They delete something, and it drives you crazy because you didn't get to see it!

Anyone else find it kinda lame that the Padwans are still...intact? And that several Masters look like recolored versions of other Jedi Masters like Shaak Ti and Kit Fisto?

No matter if we are fun or not, when someone is warned for something of this nature you all are not entitled to know why, for it is an issue between the Staff and the Individual concerned. I don't personally know what was said, and I don't really care either. Let it go people. -RH


My sig is stupid.

@ Clone:
There's a logical explaination for that. In more then one story, cut-wounds by lightsabers are closed directly. No bleeding on Anakin in Episode 3, remember?
Also, when Darth Maul tumbled down, it took a few meters for his body to finally rip in 2.
In the Heir of the Empire-books, Admiral Thrawn orders hos doctors to search for microscopic burnwounds on the corpses of stormtroopers, because he suspects Luke is there.

And well...some species just look ver similar. I don't remember Kit Fisto to be this muscled though

Hey, I'm coming to England in May for 10 days. I'll be singing with my university choir at York Minster Abbey. It's gonna be awesom!

Back on topic, though: If you'll notice, not very many "death-by-lightsaber" victims in the movies are diced to shreds. They either get new holes added, or a grievous slice across the chest. It's nothing new to still be intact once a Jedi or Sith finishes with you. Also, according to the movie, Palpatine just impaled and sliced the other masters Windu was accompanied with. It's not as lame or unusual as you somehow think.

Also, the female Master, who you said is a recolored knock-off of Shaak Ti, is not. Almost all people of the Togruta species look very similar to one another. Remember the youngling, Ashla, from Episode II?

ALso, the blue master is not a knock-off of Kit Fisto, because is a Nautolan. And that species has green skin with large, lidless black eyes. He looks more along the species of the Jedi Brutes, like Jastus Farr, but they do not have head tentacles as the master in the comic does. So its only speculation at this point.
