The Je’daii realize that the only way to light Xesh’s Forcesaber is to become angry and use the Dark Side. Some fear doing that because they don’t like how it makes them feel. Others say it is necessary to give into it sometimes in order to better understand the Force.
Trill is tracking Xesh through the Force. They used to be broodmates. They used to have an alliance. Then they were put into competition as the Force Hounds of different Predors.
Master Ters Sendon shows Tasha a holocron that he has been unable to open. It responds to Tasha’s touch. The holocron is of a person named A’Nang, last of the Tython Kwa.
When a security droid on Bogan reports that Xesh is missing, Hawk, Shae, Sek’nos, Master Jake Fenn, Rori Fenn, and Bel Zana are sent to investigate. They discover that Xesh and Daegen escaped in an overlooked spaceship. Hawk then admits that he also had the vision of a dark army carrying Forcesabers when he and Daegen entered the Chasm. He figures Daegen is going to find crystals to make more Forcesabers, and plans to chase him.
Xesh and Daegen Lok crash land on Krev Coeur, where the crystals are located.
