JEDI: FALLEN ORDER
Five years after Order 66, former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis is in hiding on the planet Bracca, where he works in a junkyard, scrapping ships from the Clone Wars. Cal is forced to use his Force powers to save his friend Prauf during an accident, revealing Cal's Jedi identity. The Empire dispatches the Second Sister and the Ninth Sister, two deadly Inquisitors; they kill Prauf and pursue Cal. Former Jedi Cere Junda and four-armed pilot Greez Dritus save Cal, and they leave in Greez's ship, the Stinger Mantis.
Cere takes Cal to the planet Bogano, where an ancient vault is located. On the way to the vault, Cal befriends a small droid named BD-1, who shows him a message from former Jedi Master Eno Cordova. The message reveals that the vault was built by an ancient civilization called the Zeffo, and that Cordova hid a Jedi holocron containing a list of Force-sensitive children inside; Cere believes the list could help rebuild the Jedi. However, the only way to access the vault is to follow Cordova's path and pass his tests. Cal heads to the Zeffo homeworld and finds a clue pointing to Cordova's friend, the Wookiee chieftain Tarfful, on Kashyyyk.
On Kashyyyk, Cal teams up with Saw Gerrera and his Partisans to fight Imperial forces enslaving the native Wookiees. Unable to find Tarfful, Cal returns to Zeffo and encounters the Second Sister, who reveals that she was Cere's Padawan, Trilla Suduri. Trilla was captured by the Empire when a tortured Cere betrayed her; she warns that Cere will do the same to Cal.
Cal learns that he needs to find a Zeffo Astrium to unlock the vault, but he is captured by a bounty hunter and forced to fight in a gladiatorial arena. He is rescued by Cere and Greez and soon receives communication that Tarfful is willing to meet. Back on Kashyyyk, Tarfful instructs Cal to seek answers at the top of the Origin Tree. There, he finds a recording of Cordova telling him that an Astrium can be found on Dathomir. The Ninth Sister attacks, but Cal defeats her.
On Dathomir, Cal's progress is immediately impeded by Nightsister Merrin, who blames the Jedi for the massacre of her people, and attempts to keep him away. Cal experiences a flashback in which he remembers his master, Jaro Tapal, sacrificing himself to protect him during the Purge; he is attacked by Jaro's spirit, and his lightsaber's kyber crystal is destroyed. Cal then encounters former Jedi Taron Malicos, who sought to learn the magick of the Nightsisters. Malicos offers to teach Cal how to handle that dark power; Cal refuses and flees as Merrin attacks. Cere admits that when she learned Trilla became an Inquisitor, she briefly fell to the dark side, which is why she cut herself off from the Force. They travel to Ilum to rebuild Cal's lightsaber. Returning to Dathomir, Cal overcomes his guilt at Jaro's death. Malicos again attempts to tempt Cal to the dark side; Merrin helps Cal defeat Malicos and decides to join the Mantis crew at Cal's invitation.
The crew returns to Bogano. Cal uses the Astrium to unlock the vault and reveal the holocron, but Trilla steals it and escapes. Cere reassumes her position as a Jedi Master and grants Cal the rank of Jedi Knight. They assault the Inquisitor headquarters on Nur, and Cal is able to defeat Trilla and recover the holocron. Cere attempts to make amends with Trilla, but Darth Vader appears and kills Trilla for her failure. Cal and Cere barely escape with help from BD-1 and Merrin. Back on the Mantis, the crew wonders what to do with the holocron. Cal, having realized that gathering the children would make it easier for the Empire to target them, destroys the holocron and asks where they should go next.
