Big shakeup in the Star Wars Expanded Universe [SPOILERS of major proportions]
Those of you still keeping up on the current novel series know that in the Legacy of the Force series, Han and Leia's eldest (and only still living) son Jacen Solo has been dabbling in the dark side thanks to the Sith lady Lumiya, a character who first appeared in the Marvel Comics series back in the 80s. You'd also know that they recently had a contest to pick Jacen's Sith name, which in the newly-released novel Sacrifice was revealed to be Darth Caedus. What you might not have known is that he and popular EU character Mara Jade Skywalker, who's been a fan-favorite since her introduction during Timothy Zahn's first trilogy almost 15 years ago, had a knock-down, drag-out duel across the cosmos resulting in her death. Gee, I wonder how pissed Luke's going to be at his own nephew for whacking his wife and mother of his son.
