YMMV / Dark Times

  • Complete Monster: Dezono Qua is probably one of the worst non-Sith characters to appear in the EU. He even has a Meaningful Name tipping off readers knowledgeable in Native-American myths about his nature. Qua is a minor human noble who dabbles in slavery, and is the purchaser of one hero's young daughter. When he's confronted, Qua reveals the reason he deals exclusively in child slaves: he eats them. When asked why he has children purchased solely to kill and cook them, Qua's response? Because I could. Even Jedi Master Dass Jennir was so appalled at his horrific crimes and callous attitude that he decided to just shoot him dead.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Dass Jennir realizes that the enemy have fully taken over the town. He proceeds to release the woman who tried to have him killed, defeat the master swordsman who tried to kill him, and single handedly liberate the town.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: On Arkinnea, on the run from the planetary militia, Master K'Kruhk and the Jedi younglings under his protection have their origins discovered by an Imperial officer. Said Imperial officer served with K'Kruhk during the Clone Wars and has great respect for him. He not only ends up keeping K'Kruhk's nature as a Jedi secret, but also sends them money that they can use to help survive. It's because of him that the group has the closest thing to a happy ending in the comic, having evolved into a thriving community and with all of the younglings having grown into fine young Jedi.
  • Moral Event Horizon: The militia of the planet Arkinnea go screaming over it when they drop refugees out of an ore carrier from hundred of feet in the air under the guise that they were going to be settled in new lands just because they refugees were from formerly Separatist worlds. It really says something about how bad the situation is that you actually cheer when the Empire has the men involved arrested to be put on trial.
