History

Emperor's Hand

Main article: Emperor's Hand

The Emperor's Hands were a group of assassins handpicked by Emperor Palpatine to carry out his will. Palpatine's Hands were disposable, and were usually unaware of the existence of any Hands other than themselves. Some of the Hands were able to hear the Emperor's voice from across the galaxy, and respond to him in kind. Mara was one of the few who could hear his commands. In Timothy Zahn's book Allegiance, Mara is the Emperor's Hand, working to expose the embezzlement of funds, tracking a pirate group in the Shelsha sector, and in conjunction with the rogue stormtrooper unit "Hand of Judgement", succeeds in preventing the rebellion and secession of Shellonokwa from the Empire. While a lethal and precise warrior, Mara's compassion and sense of justice are apparent; she is not dark like her master in either actions or allegiance. Mara Jade and Kogo Vess, two Emperors Hands The Emperors Hands, in the Extended Universe of the fictional Star Wars galaxy, were Emperor Palpatines secret, private Force-sensitive agents and assassins throughout his reign. ...

Early abduction and training

Jade was introduced in Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn. Emperor Palpatine took her from her parents when she was a small child. She has no memories of her previous life, except that she thinks that her parents didn't want her to go. He trained her to use her strength in the Force, and gave her the position of a Hand. When Palpatine began to worry about the threat Luke Skywalker posed to the Empire, he sent Mara to infiltrate Jabba the Hutt's Palace disguised as a dancer for Jabba to await and kill him. In the end, Jabba would not allow her to leave the palace to view the proposed execution of Luke by the Sarlaac, so her mission was a failure. Heir to the Empire is the first book in a trilogy of novels known as The Thrawn Trilogy, all written by Timothy Zahn. ... Timothy Zahn (born September 1, 1951) is a science fiction novelist. ... Palpatine is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. ... The Force is a binding, ubiquitous power that is the object of the Jedi and Sith monastic orders in the Star Wars universe. ...

Mara subsequently saw scenes from the Emperor's death through the Force. Vader and Skywalker were there, and it seemed that they both killed Palpatine together. While her hatred for Skywalker burned deep within her, Palpatine's last message to her was "you will kill Luke Skywalker". Meanwhile, her life was a shambles: the resources she had once had access to were all dependent on the Emperor, meaning her life of luxury, privilege and purpose was over. She made her way through the galaxy, doing odd jobs and manual labor to make ends meet. Even worse, her Force skills went into remission, only to return at inconvenient times, generally necessitating a change of employment. Fortune finally struck when she saved smuggler baron Talon Karrde from an ambush. Karrde was so impressed that he hired her on the spot; over the following six months, she rose within his organization at an astonishing rate. For other uses, see Star Wars Galaxy. ... Talon Karrde is a character in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. ...


Into this promising future crashed Luke Skywalker, the man she was compelled to kill. At Karrde's base on Myrkr, where Skywalker lacked his Force talents (inhibited by native ysalamiri), Mara was intent on following through; but a series of circumstances (and some unknown hesitation) resulted in her helping him escape instead. Karrde and his organization fled soon after, a massive Imperial bounty on their collective heads. Myrkr is a fictional planet in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. ...

Luke came to understand that it wasn't truly she who desired to kill him, but Palpatine, whose voice Mara could hear in her head anywhere in the galaxy, even after he was long dead. Furthermore, Mara came to understand that Palpatine didn't want Skywalker dead for his own sake, but rather as a final act of vengeance against Darth Vader, Luke's father. Luke, for his part, resolved to free her from this curse, regardless of the danger she posed to him. Mara was both confused and impressed that her hated enemy would do such a thing for her. The golden opportunity came when the two found themselves battling Luuke Skywalker, the original's clone. After a protracted battle, Mara killed the clone, silencing Palpatine's voice and any ill will towards the real Skywalker. This article is about minor villains in the fictional Star Wars universe. ...


A few years later, Palpatine, reborn in a clone body and in hiding on his Deep Core throneworld of Byss, labeled her a traitor and sent one of his loyal Hands, the former Prophet of the Dark Side "Blackhole," to dispose of her. Mara was kidnapped by Blackhole in the Senex Sector, but she was eventually rescued by maverick Jedi Kyle Katarn. When Palpatine died a final death on Onderon, Mara was released from his shadow at last, and allowed to begin her life anew. Curiously, during a mission to Nirauan with Luke, she said she didn't believe that the "reborn Emperor" was indeed a reincarnated Palpatine, though she did not elaborate the reason for her skepticism. Cloning is the process of creating an identical copy of something. ... Byss is a planet located deep in the Core of the fictional Star Wars galaxy. ...

Talon Karrde

According to Tales from the Empire, Mara Jade, aimless after Palpatine's death, met Talon Karrde on the planet Varonat. She soon met Karrde, who dropped in to look for business opportunities. But Karrde soon got in over his head when he realized that the safaris were killing intelligent entities. After finding this out, Gamgalon confronted Karrde and planned to kill him, but Mara saved him. She then asked for a job. Talon Karrde is a character in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. ...

Over the years, Mara and Luke continued to work together in many important situations in the aftermath of the Galactic Civil War that followed the Battle of Endor. Initially, Mara declined to attend the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV because of her concerns about Luke and the way he structured the school. On their mission to investigate the Hand of Thrawn, they developed a close Force bond, prompting Luke to make an unexpected marriage proposal, which she accepted. They married on Coruscant, soon after the signing of the peace treaty with the Empire. Mara would later continue her training and become a Jedi Master.

In the New Jedi Order series, Mara and Luke fought together against a new threat, the extragalactic Yuuzhan Vong, who infected Mara with a deadly disease.

During the Force Heretic novels, she played a major role in finding the planet Zonama Sekot in the Unknown Regions, along with a small team of Jedi and an Imperial escort. Despite a trap set up by the Yuuzhan Vong, they succeeded in finding the planet. After this, the planet's guiding consciousness Sekot made the discovery that the reason the Yuuzhan Vong were "invisible" in the Force was because it had been stripped from them because of their bloodlust. Harrar, the Yuuzan Vong priest, was present and instrumental in enabling Sekot to make this discovery. Mara fought in the battle to retake Coruscant (or Yuuzhan'tar, as the Vong called it) as part of the Jedi strike team composed of Luke, herself, Jacen and Jaina Solo, Tahiri Veila, and Kenth Hamner. She went with Tahiri and Kenth to aid the Shamed Ones in their fight, but broke off from her partners to chase Nom Anor through the overgrown maze of Coruscant. She captured him after defeating him in hand-to-hand combat, but restrained from killing him. She brought him back to Kenth and Tahiri at the site of the victorious Shamed Ones just in time to see Supreme Overlord Onimi's escape ship prepping. She, Tahiri, Kenth and Anor raced up the secret passageway into the citadel. She arrived moments after Luke killed Shimmra and Jacen and Jaina had dashed after Onimi. Despite the feat of killing the supposed Supreme Overlord, Luke had been stabbed with Shimmra's huge amphistaph. The three Jedi carried Luke back to the square, meeting the Solos, and got Luke onboard the Millennium Falcon. Jacen healed Luke with the aid of the tears Mara wept over her dying husband, as well as his own. The Skywalkers were reunited with their son on Zonama Sekot.

During The Swarm War trilogy by Troy Denning, Mara fought in the huge battle against the Dark Nest. While she succeeded in killing countless Dark Killiks, she was wounded by Lomi Plo's apprentice with a huge gaping hole in her abdomen. During this time, Alema Rar turned into the Night Herald and goaded Luke into distrust of Mara with the tantalizing suggestion that his mother had been one of her targets. However, this was proved to be false when deeply encoded holograms R2-D2 had taken of Anakin and Padme were shown. Her son, Ben, also partially joined the hive-mind of the Dark Nest, and she fought with the Gorog that had stowed away on her ship and befriended her son. She relegated Ben to a loose apprenticeship with Jacen Solo, who was the only person Ben felt comfortable using his Force powers around. She failed, however, to see the darkness in Jacen, and believed his lies regarding their whereabouts. She supported Luke when he declared himself the Grand Jedi Master, seeing it as the only way to unite the fractured Jedi. Jacen Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. ...


During the Second Correllian Insurrection, Mara continued to support Jacen Solo among the Jedi due to what she perceived as a positive influence he was having on Ben. However, after Jacen sent Ben on several missions of a questionable ethical nature, she began to doubt her previous viewpoints. After Ben returned from an assassination mission against Prime Minister Gejjin, he caught up with his mother to relate to her what happened, as well as the fact that Jacen was cooperating with the Sith Lumiya. Mara thereby decided to kill Jacen for his fall to the Sith. Mara confronted Jacen on the world of Kavan in the Hapes Cluster. Knowing she couldn't defeat him in open combat, she lured Jacen into a system of tunnels before collapsing them on his head. Despite that, Jacen managed to free himself before finally casting an illusion on Mara so that she saw Ben in Jacen's place. This caused her to hesitate long enough for Jacen to stab her with a poison dart, and she collapsed to the ground. Just before she died, Mara spoke to Jacen one last time.

You think...you've won, but Luke will crush you...and I refuse...to let you...destroy the future...for my Ben.[1]

Having said this, Mara then died. Her death was felt by many Jedi throughout the Force in various ways. She also chose to leave her body behind after death rather than having it disappear into the Force as evidence for her son Ben Skywalker to discover.


Mara's ships

Prior to gaining her own ship, Mara used a personal Z-95 Headhunter when circumstances required her to go off on her own. During her first days as a Jedi, she used Shrike, loaned by Talon Karrde. Mara lost her first space ship, a craft known as the Jade's Fire, when she remotely steered it into a Chiss fortress on Nirauan. She later owned other ships: the Hunter's Luck, the Jade Sabre, and the Jade Shadow. The following is a list of fictional Star Wars starfighters. ...
