According to legend, the Sith are always two: a master
and an apprentice. It was not always this way. A
thousand years ago the Sith were many, and they battled
endlessly with the Jedi Army of Light. Lord Kaan ruled
the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness and sought the
destruction of Lord Hoth and his Jedi followers.
Recruited into the war by a scout, three friends venture
onto the battleground and march into destinies far
greater and different than any of them could have ever
As the war between the Jedi Army of Light and the Sith
Brotherhood of Darkness rages, Tomcat, Bug, and Rain:
three cousins drawn to the battle in search of
adventure; find that they are in for more than they
expected. Far more. Brought to the planet Ruusan by a
scout gathering troops for the war, the family
desperately tries to stay together in the midst of an
epic war between good and evil. But individual desires
may prove greater than family ties as the three seek
their fates among the battlefields of Ruusan and head
toward a destiny controlled by the Sith Lord Darth Bane!
War rages on the battle torn planet of Ruusan. Tomcat
and his cousin Bug finally reach the Jedi camp only to
find that things aren't quite as they expected. The
glorious Jedi Knights from the folktales Tomcat used to
listen to weren't so common, so... human. And to make
matters worse Tomcat's other cousin, Rain, is still lost
in the wilds of Ruusan. As hopes flicker in the Jedi
camp, there is conflict in the ranks of the Sith
Brotherhood of Darkness. Lord Kaan and Darth Bane clash
over how to conduct the Sith campaign: indicating signs
of greater trouble to come!
The war between Jedi and Sith continues to rage on the
planet of Ruusan, consuming all in its path. The battle
between good and evil has claimed soldiers on both sides
and now the rage boils over and starts to consume the
planet itself. Ruusan's forests and countryside become
victims of the war along with innocent bystanders and
the native creatures called Bouncers which occupy the
sky above the planet. In the midst of the firestorm,
cousins Tomcat and Bug find it difficult to reach any
common ground and continue to grow further apart.
Meanwhile, their missing cousin Rain's Force powers grow
as she struggles to find her way back to her family.
The devastated planet of Ruusan has endured much during
the war between the Jedi Army of Light and the Sith
Brotherhood of Darkness. Its forests have been decimated
and its inhabitants mercilessly slaughtered. The war is
not over yet and many more will suffer before it ends.
Of three young cousins sent to Ruusan, one will
willfully join with the dark, one will seek out the
light, and one will fulfill a destiny that none could
have possibly foreseen.
The war on Ruusan between the Jedi Army of Light and the
Sith Brotherhood of Darkness all comes down to one
event... An event that sends shockwaves across the
galaxy and will forever change the relationship between
good and evil. A devastating weapon of mass destruction
will have a deadly effect on the planet, leaving those
left living wishing they had perished with their
comrades. Who shall live to see another day, and who
will vanish into history?
