''Star Wars: Knight Errant'' is an American comic book series set in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse. Written by John Jackson Miller and drawn by Federico Dallocchio it will be published by Dark Horse Comics starting in October of 2010. A tie-in novel, also called ''Knight Errant'' and also written by Miller, was published in January 2011.
Set 1,000 years before Episode 1, the series stars Jedi Kerra Holt, who ends up stranded deep behind enemy lines during the New Sith Wars. Cut off from the Jedi Order and the Republic, Kerra is faced with the question of just what one lone Jedi can do against a galaxy that's falling apart.
Now has a [[Characters/StarWarsKnightErrant character sheet]] that NeedsWikiMagicLove.
The stories contain the following tropes:
* AGodAmI: Daiman thinks he's the only being in the universe that's real and that everyone else was created by his own mind.
* ActionGirl: Kerra Holt.
* AffablyEvil: Arkadia tries to be this, she fails. Vilia succeeds far more.
* AxCrazy: Both Daiman and Odion, though it manifests differently (Daiman thinks everyone else is a figment of his imagination and he can do whatever he wants to them as a result; Odion knows other people are real and just wants them all dead). Brothers after all. Malakite, their cousin, is pretty much like this as well.
* BaldOfEvil: Odion.
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Vilia]]. From the perspective of the galaxy at large, who are unaware of [[spoiler: her]] existence, it appears to be a BigBadEnsemble with Daiman, Odion, and Arkadia as the most visible players.
* BloodKnight: Odion.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Daiman is essentially a very malignant CloudCuckooLander; since every indication is that he legitimately belives himself the only realy being in the whole universe, he has literally no recognizable framework for morality or relating to other lifeforms.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Odion on the Massacre of Aquilaris, where Kerra's family was killed.
* CainAndAbel: Odion and Daiman, big time. This sibling rivalry launched an entire war engulfing numerous systems in Sith space. [[spoiler: Then we find out in the novel that over a dozen Sith Lord siblings and cousins are warring with each other in order to win their Sith grandmother's vast inheritance.]] Averted with the twins Quillan and Dromika, who rely on each other and their Force bond perhaps too much.
* TheCaligula: Daiman.
* CardCarryingVillain: Daiman and ''especially'' Odion.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Narsk.
* CrapsackWorld: Just about every darksider out there is calling themselves a Sith Lord and running around killing people and causing chaos, the Republic has thrown up its hands and cut off the hyperspace routes and communication to large sectors of space leaving thousands of worlds to their own devices and the Jedi can do almost nothing to stop any of it.
* CreepyChild: Dromika and Quillan.
* DarkLord: All the wannabe Sith fancy themselves this.
* DoomedByCanon: Kerra Holt can't overthrow Sith Space, it lasts for another thirty years until the events of the DarthBane trilogy.
* DuringTheWar: The series is set during the New Sith Wars.
* EarthShatteringKaboom: Kerra Holt narrowly manages to avert one in the first issue.
* [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas Even Sith Lords Obey Their Grandmas]]: And how!
** Vilia Calimondra gives perhaps one of the best lines when questioned if her motives for testing her grandkids are some sort of Sith thing. "The Sith are ancient. But there were grandmothers long before that."
* EvilChancellor: Saaj Calician. [[spoiler: subverted. Saaj is actually a slave who doesn't even possess anything resembling free will. The moment he returns to his own consciousness, he's executed as a traitor by the Sith.]]
* EvilMatriarch: [[spoiler: Vilia.]]
* EvilVersusEvil: Sith vs. Sith
* FauxAffablyEvil: Daiman, if he's in the mood.
* TheFettered: Gorlan exhibits some traits.
** Kerra as well. She's the ONLY Jedi Knight in Sith Space.
* GoodVersusEvil: Kerra represents the Republic and the Jedi in of their clearest representations as the good guys. Just because they're good, however, doesn't mean they have the answers however.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: this is how [[spoiler: one can describe Odion's death.]]
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: Zodoh is executed by Daiman with one of his own stormdrivers. Odion's death also counts for how Kerra and Yulan turn the joy of the children he had captive on him, incinerating him.]]
* NietzscheWannabe: Odion.
** ''All of the Sith'' are NietzscheWannabe.
* SergeantRock: Master Dackett, Brigadier Rusher's senior enlisted man.
* TheBrigadier: Brigadier Jarrow Rusher, commander of the mercenary artillery unit Rusher's Brigade, and Kerra's main ally during the novel.
* TheObiWan: Vannar Treece trained Kerra.
* OmnicidalManiac: Played somewhat straight with Odion, subverted with Daiman, though who knows what the hell he actually seeks.
* LaResistance: Kerra tries to convince Gorlan to become this.
* TheRemnant: Vannar Treece calls "Chagrasi Remnant" a territory that resists being conquered by the warring Sith.
* RoyallyScrewedUp: [[spoiler: the revelation behind the reason all of the Sith Lords in the region are so nuts - they're a family of nobility set against each other by their grandmother]].
* ShoutOut: The cover of the third issue of the series is based off a piece of concept art by Ralph McQuarrie.
* SiblingRivalry: Odion and Daiman act like they're CainAndAbel but it turns out to be this.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Gorlan and Kerra discuss open resistance that could get the enslaved people killed.
** The series seems to be a heavy contrast of Idealism embodied by Kerra and the near-total despair of the people in Sith Space.
* TitleDrop: In the novel, Daiman muses over the "errant Knight" that is Kerra to a prisoner that has seen the Jedi.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: in the novel Kerra discovers not one, but several bystanders changing their occupations during her brief stay at Arkadia's base of operations. She eventually find out that inhabitants are constantly rotated between absolutely different positions on a completely random basis: it serves the Sith purpose in a pretty twisted way.
* WordOfGod: John Jackson Miller has said on his Facebook that Kerra could kick the butt of Zayne Carrick, star of Miller's previous Star Wars series Knights of the Old Republic.
