Added DiffLines:

* TreacheryCoverUp: The Jedi realize how damaging the truth of Haazan's manipulations and actions would be if the Republic found out. Keeping the whole thing a secret from the galaxy, and blaming the bombardment of the Jedi temple by the Republic fleet on the Mandalorians.

* {{Badass}}:
** Zayne Carrick, who doesn't even have to kill a single person in forty issues to show it.
** Played straight with Cassus Fett: whenever he shows up (he's normally only present through fearful/awed mentions of his name), it's to make an amazingly badass statement or speech.

* Irony: An remarkably bitter example. Zayne discovers that the Padawan Massacre occurred early enough for him to miss it (and survive) only because one of his best friends realized he was too incompetent for the Masters' claim that he was being knighted along with the rest of them to be truthful. He does not take this realization well.

* GoodParents: The Carricks. Zayne's mum is seen in a flashback expressing worry over her son's future and safety in the Order. When Zayne runs into his father later, there's no explanation needed--none of the family believed the charges against him for a second.

* ContinuityPorn: For the games. At one point, Zayne is hanging out with the Hidden Beks in Taris' lower city, which includes Gadon Thek before he went blind, Brejik before he made his FaceHeelTurn, and Mission as a young kid.

* LaResistance: After the Mandalorians invade Taris, their senator and the swoop gangs take up arms against them.



* MadScientist: Demagol. His name actually means "flesh carver" in Mandalorian.

to:

* MadScientist: LoveTriangle: A low-level one between Jarael, Alek, and Zayne. Zayne doesn't make any non-platonic feeling clear for a long time, and Jarael pushes Alek away for largely unrelated reasons, but it's there.

** Arkanians [[PlanetOfHats as a whole]] have a reputation for doing really dangerous and unethical things with science.
* MysticalPlague: The rakghoul disease is really the continuing spell from an ancient Sith sorcerer who used it to create an army of slaves who could function as skilled warriors and pilots, but were otherwise mindless. It's still around because it's spread by bite.

Added DiffLines:

* TournamentArc: The issues where Zayne jumps into the swoop-duel arena and ends up exposing a massive slaving operation, which leads into the complete version of Jarael's backstory.
