Lost Tribe of the Sith Spiral #2

The Doomed have revealed themselves, and they are not what anyone was expecting.  The planet Kesh has had a longer relationship with the Jedi and the Force than anyone realizes, and it is home to more than just the Sith and the Keshiri.

The Doomed are neither Jedi nor Sith, having a foot in both the light and the dark, seeing the Force as a curse that they must purge from themselves.  Someone once said with “Great power comes great responsibility.”  The Doomed have taken this to the point where they feel they must deny themselves the power because they did not have the ability to wield it responsibly.

Miller’s writing continues to unfold the mysteries of the planet Kesh.  Even after the Sith have dominated the Tribe for thousands of years, there is still more of the story to unfold.  The Sith do not know the whole truth of the planet, or even the Tribe that they now rule.  The truth behind the Keshiri legends that the Sith exploited when they first arrived, is revealed.

We see how The Doomed as a society have had millennia to make this harsh land work for them and with them.  While at the same time, it has been so long since they had any true outsider they are unprepared for the Sith and are quickly caught off guard.

This new world speaks to the spoiled Sith daughter Takara.  Spinner has other ideas though, including a plan to get back to the Tribe with something that could drastically alter the balance of power for everyone.
