DATABANK: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER //
The fabled founding texts of the Jedi Order were sheltered from Ahch-To’s weather by the huge trunk of a once-mighty uneti tree. This collection of ancient tomes was painstakingly assembled by Luke Skywalker, but became a burden and a torment to him. Luke vowed to burn down the library, but repeatedly found himself unable to do so – until Yoda’s spirit called down lightning to do it for him. Luke didn’t know the library was empty: Rey had already spirited the Jedi texts to safety aboard the Millennium Falcon. She then studied them as part of her own training, learning of techniques such as Force healing and the existence of secret worlds such as Exegol.
The Alazmec of Winsit are adherents of the dark side, and particularly devoted pilgrims journey to Darth Vader’s wrecked castle on Mustafar to venerate his memory. These Sith devotees are the guardians of Mustafar’s Corvax Fen, where they have planted irontrees in its scanty soil. They defend its secrets against seekers they consider unworthy – including First Order Supreme Leader Kylo Ren.
The New Republic’s rise reduced the once-mighty Empire to a rump state hemmed in by strict disarmament treaties and punishing reparations. But in the galaxy’s Unknown Regions, former Imperial officers, nobles and technologists plotted a return to power, building fleets and armies in secret. This movement became the First Order, ruled by Supreme Leader Snoke, and is now ready to reclaim the Imperial legacy.
