After spending most of his life in Canada, he finally grew tired of the long, cold winters and headed south in search of a climate more conducive to year-round golf. He now lives in Texas with his wife, Jennifer, and their cat. Storms were common here on Dromund Kaas; dark clouds perpetually blocked out the sun, rendering terms like day and night meaningless. The only natural illumination came from the frequent bursts of lightning arcing across the sky, but the glow from the spaceport and nearby Kaas City provided more than enough light to see where he was going.

But only death can stop him from trying. Plot summary Edit The novel begins two years after the events of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and begins with Revan living on Coruscant, now married to Bastila Shan , on the outs with the Jedi Order and experiencing horrible insomnia due to nightmare he believes are part of his forgotten past as the Sith Lord Darth Revan.
A meeting with his old friend Canderous Ordo provides Revan with another chance to regain his memories; a group of Mandalorians are searching for the mask of Mandalore , the traditional leader of the Mandalorian peoples. The mask was taken by Revan after defeating Mandalore and hidden away to prevent the Mandalorians from regrouping and to break their spirits.
On the planet Dromund Kaas and unbeknownst to the Republic, the Sith Empire has rebuilt itself after being driven away by the Republic thousands of years ago. Scourge carries out his duties, despite growing concerns that Nyriss is trying to have him killed. Known then as Lord Vitiate, he eventually killed his parents once the truth of his parentage was revealed and through violence and terror eventually drove out the ruling Sith Lord.
After the Sith Empire lost their war against the Republic it was Lord Vitiate who picked up the pieces and held the Empire together. Scheming to obtain immortality , he and other Sith performed a ritual that killed every living thing on the planet the other Sith included and transferred their life energy to Vitiate. Nyriss fears that the Emperor plans to invade the Republic and risk the stability of the Empire as well as the well being of the remaining Sith species, who were mercilessly hunted down by the Jedi.
The book then jumps forward four years , right after the events of the Dark Wars. She arrives on Nathema and after searching through a municipal building learns of Dromund Kaas and sets out for the planet. Arriving on Dromund Kaas, she passes herself off as a mercenary and eventually makes contact with Scourge who, after seeing Nathema and talking with Revan, has agreed that the Emperor is a danger to the Sith and must be stopped.
After leaking information to the Emperor that Nyriss was a traitor, the Emperor decides to purge the entire Dark Council and sets his personal army upon them. During the chaos Scourge and Meetra manage to free Revan from his cell.
Meetra and Scourge are attacked by Nyriss, but before she can kill them Revan approaches them and effortlessly kills the Sith Lord by directing her force lightning burst back to her.
After resting and watching a message from Bastila and his son Vaner , the three set out to eliminate the Emperor. Scourge however is troubled by visions he cannot explain, of a Jedi Knight and the Emperor. The Emperor is frighteningly powerful. Revan is then nearly electrocuted to death by the Emperor, and is only stopped when T3 sets the Emperor on fire with his flamethrower. The Emperor directs his lighting at T3, annihilating the small droid.
This is the moment that Meetra and Scourge intervene. At this moment Scourge understands his vision ; he is seeing the death of the Emperor at the hands of a Jedi Knight , but it is not Meetra nor Revan. Understanding what needs to be done, Scourge stabs Meetra in the back, killing her instantly. Scourge lies to the Emperor saying this was all a ruse to flush out every traitor in the Empire and Revan is placed in a suspension tank where he is constantly interrogated and tortured by the Emperor for information about the Republic; unknown to the Emperor is that Revan is able to slightly impose his will upon the Emperor and plans to slow down his planned invasion of the Republic as long as he can so Bastila and his son will never see war.
The book concludes many decades later with an elderly Bastila conversing with her son. They talk of Revan, and Vaner wonders if his father would have been disappointed that he never joined the Jedi Order but went into politics instead. Bastila then goes to sleep , dreaming of her lost husband.
