Throughout its history, the planet Kariek has been scarred by violence, as warring Eickarie tribes battle for dominance. From this morass arose a mysterious Warlord backed by a legion of alien mercenaries. For five decades he has ruled while the tribes fought to topple him.
Now, the tribes have finally put aside their most violent differences to forge a tenuous alliance. This group has captured a city, and cornered the Warlord and his minions in the fortress. Aiding this revolution is the Empire of the Hand, a post-Palpatine Imperial splinter group.
The story follows a crack team from the 501st, the Empire of the Hand's most elite stormtrooper legion. These troops are deployed to capture the despised warlord alive, while negotiating with the unpredictable passions of zealous Eickarie freedom fighters with their own agenda.

This story occurs approximately 20 years after the Battle of Yavin.
