** And of course, since it's an interquel, a lot of references to the sixth film are made. For instance, we're shown how Luke built his new lightsaber, how the Rebels got the plans of the Death Star (and that indeed, many Bothans died for this information) or how Leai got Boushh's clothes among other things.

* AffablyEvil: While he's FauxAffablyEvil with his enemies, Xizor is more AffablyEvil when dealing with the everyday parts of his job of ruling a criminal empire, as he generally prefers to use the carrot rather than the stick when he deals with his subordinates. Barring the traitors of course.



* BreakTheHaughty: Dash becomes a lot less arrogant after he fails to destroy a missile aimed at some of his allies, resulting in the deaths of several Bothans. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that this missile was indestructible, meaning that he ''did'' hit it, but it was no use.]]



* ContinuityNod: The radio drama for ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' makes an offhand mention of these events, namely the trip to Coruscant and allowing the droids to fly the ''Falcon''.

to:

* FauxAffablyEvil: Xizor, Xizor is this towards his enemies, especially around Leia.Vader (and Leia after she resists him): plotting their downfall or death while being unfailingly polite.

Barring the traitors of course.



* IdiotBall: Xizor, which ultimately led to his undoing. He wanted to curry favor with the Emperor by delivering Luke Skywalker alive, but only succeeded in bringing down the ''combined'' wrath of Rogue Squadron ''[[EnemyMine and]]'' Darth Vader upon him.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Not the main point of Xizor's EvilPlan, [[XanatosGambit but definitely a side benefit]] along with BatheHerAndBringHerToMe.

* ItsAllMyFault: Luke blames himself for the twelve Bothans are killed by a missile and is convinced he's a lousy commander since he always loses men when he's in charge. He has a brief HeroicBSOD, but it quickly turns into anger, causing him to unleash MoreDakka on the ship they're trying to capture to disable it. The narrative outright states he was too angry to bother using the Force, light or dark side.

* ContinuitySnarl: In the video game, Dash arrives in the Echo Base hanger just in time to see the ''Millennium Falcon'' take off. In the movie, Vader and a whole platoon of stormtroopers were right there to see it take off, but he's absent from the video games depiction of the scene.

* BodyHorror: The novel shows Vader meditating in his chamber without his helmet, where he thinks about the horrific injuries he got long ago in his duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi, such as his burned skin and destroyed lungs. He attempts to use ThePowerOfHate to heal himself and breath again without his mask, but has only limited success.

* Foreshadowing: At one point in the novel, Darth Vader attempts to locate Luke with the Force only to sense his presence in ''two'' different locations. Since most readers are likely familair of the big reveal in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', it is pretty obvious Vader is now sensing Leia.
