Star Wars Confirms New Sith Villain to Hunt Luke Skywalker


- Advertisment -

“I am your father.” Forty years later, those words remain one of cinema’s greatest twists. Even if you’ve seen The Empire Strikes Back hundreds of times, you can’t help but get a shiver down your spine when Luke’s greatest enemy reveals his identity, showing that good and evil remain inextricably linked.

While author Adam Christopher isn’t promising a twist quite so monumental, he does have plans for a similarly shocking reveal for his upcoming novel Shadow of the Sith. Set after Return of the JediShadow of the Sith pairs Luke Skywalker with his ally Lando Calrissian when a Sith kidnaps the latter’s daughter. In addition to Sith assassin Ochi of Bestoon, who was first introduced in The Rise of Skywalker, Luke and Lando must also deal with a mysterious new Sith warrior, a woman known to the heroes.

Along with a new excerpt from Shadow of the Sithio9 also offers a glimpse of this new villain via a poster included in Barnes & Noble exclusive editions of the book. The poster shows a female figure cloaked in darkness, tendrils of dark hair waving from her hood. By the glow of the Sith’s red lightsaber, we can see black claws protruding from thin blue fingers, topping arms wrapped in bandages. The Sith’s face is obscured by a skull-shaped mask, not unlike those worn by Jason Voorhees, Casey Jones of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, or Marvel baddie the Taskmaster.

The novel excerpt takes readers inside the mind of this new villain, where she’s overcome by “a relic… [a] presence from an older time, a malignancy that somehow survived, somehow found a way.” A “terrible” voice, one “as familiar as her own” echoes inside her head, repeating the word “Soon.” Waking from nightmares, the Sith answers a call from her master, a “figure, cloaked in darkness, the hood barely concealing a face that is wrapped tightly in heavy black bandages, in the manner all cultists of the Sith Eternal hide their features.” As she begins to hear her master’s bidding, the woman wonders if, one day, the Sith “will ask too much.”
