The Main Villain For The Upcoming “Shadow Of The Sith” Is Revealed


With Lucasfilm attempting to salvage what they can from the Disney Sequel trilogy, a brand new book called Star Wars: Shadow of the Sith will dive into the details of the “Mission” mentioned in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

To try and drum up hype for the book, Lucasfilm revealed a Barns & Noble exclusive cover variant, and on the cover showed the main villain of the book. The villain appears to be none other than Kiza.

Kiza was a Sith Acolyte from the Star Wars: Aftermath trilogy released between 2015 – 2017 set shortly after Return of the Jedi. It appears that they have returned to face Luke once more.

In The Rise of Skywalker Lando Calrissian spoke of a secret mission that he and Luke Skywalker embarked on shortly before the events of The Force Awakens. This book will fill us in on what events took place.

The official Outline for the story says:

The Empire is dead. Nearly two decades after the Battle of Endor, the tattered remnants of Palpatine’s forces have fled to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. But for the heroes of the New Republic, danger and loss are ever-present companions, even in this newly forged era of peace.

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker is haunted by visions of the dark side, foretelling an ominous secret growing somewhere in the depths of space, on a dead world called Exegol. The disturbance in the Force is undeniable, and Luke’s worst fears are confirmed when his old friend Lando Calrissian comes to him with reports of a new Sith menace.

After Lando’s daughter was stolen from his arms, he searched the stars for any trace of his lost child. But every new rumor leads only to dead ends and fading hopes—until he crosses paths with Ochi of Bestoon, a Sith assassin tasked with kidnapping a young girl.

Ochi’s true motives remain shrouded to Luke and Lando. For on a junkyard moon, a mysterious envoy of the Sith Eternal has bequeathed a sacred blade to the assassin, promising that it will answer the questions that have haunted him since the Empire fell. In exchange, he must complete a final mission: Return to Exegol with the key to the Sith’s glorious rebirth, Rey, the granddaughter of Darth Sidious himself.

As Ochi hunts Rey and her parents to the edge of the galaxy, Luke and Lando race into the mystery of the Sith’s lingering shadow and aid a young family running for their lives.

Star Wars: Shadow of the Sith releases this June.
