Acolytes of the Beyond
"Vader lives. And so do you. Tell everyone the Acolytes are coming, doll."

A group of Dark Side devotees who first appear shortly after the Battle of Endor. They venerate the Sith and focus on collecting Sith artifacts.

    In General 
  • Cool Mask: Many members wear masks, though they must be earned.
  • Laser Blade: Though they initially destroyed the Sith lightsabers they found to "return" them to their dead owners, the most esteemed members began keeping for themselves.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: They are initially nonviolent, peacefully purchasing Sith artifacts. However, they soon become violent and start stealing them.
  • Religion of Evil: They worship the Dark Side of the Force though none of them are Force-sensitive themselves. They mostly seem to be worshipping Vader and spout out that "Vader lives."

Species: Pantoran

Homeworld: Corellia

Appearances: Life Debt | Empire's End

"This is a revolution. This is the revenge of the darkness. This is oblivion."

A Pantoran from Coronet City on Corellia who joins the Acolytes.

  • Ax-Crazy: After being given Viceroy Exim's mask, Kiza goes more than a little crazy, including blacking out before the assault and coming to in the middle of it as she is killing New Republic soldiers.
  • Cool Mask: She's given a mask made of Thunderbolt Iron that once belonged to Viceroy Exim Panshard.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Blue-skinned, since she's a Pantoran.
  • Reluctant Warrior: She's initially unsure of herself and reluctant to go into battle. The mask removes all her doubts.
  • Street Urchin: Her background. Her resentment towards upper-class Corellians fueled her anger and made her a prime candidate for the Acolytes.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: She has the mask and a lightsaber but barely knows how to use them.



Species: Human

Homeworld: Corellia

Appearances: Life Debt | Empire's End

A male Corellian and an Acolyte of the Beyond.

  • Friends with Benefits: He and Kiza are far from being friends, but they are sometimes lovers.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He objects when Yupe Tashu gives Kiza a sacred mask rather than him. As punishment for questioning his decision, Tashu takes Remi's lightsaber and gives it to Kiza. He attacks her during a raid on a New Republic outpost on Devaron and is killed.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: An alias given to him by the Acolytes is "Oblivion". When Detective Erno asks Remi for his name, he says it is Oblivion, then he later cuts off one of Erno's arms.

Church of the Force

An underground church formed during the Age of the Empire. They are not Force-sensitive but worship the Force and seek to uphold Jedi ideals. Thirty years after the battle of Endor, a enclave of the Church of the Force lives in a village on Jakku.

    In General 
  • Hero-Worshipper: The Church of the Force venerates the Jedi.
  • Sacred Scripture: They revere the Journal of the Whills.
  • War for Fun and Profit: One of the Church's big concerns. Members of the Church of the Force prefer to build their own weapons rather than let weapons manufacturers profit off violence.

    Christophsis Pilgrimage 

Christophsis Pilgrimage

Appearances: Empire's End

A group of Church members who travel to Christophsis to return kyber crystals that were stolen by the Empire. They include MA-B0 "Mabo", a cargo lifter droid; Addar, a human; Jumon, an Ikkaru; Madrammagath, an Elomin; and Uggorda, a Duros.

  • Actual Pacifist: Jumon refuses to kill the Kyaddaks that hunt his group as they are creatures of the Force as well. He is also displeased to learn that Addar brought a blaster into a sacred place.
  • Easy Evangelism: When Addar expresses doubts about the usefulness of their mission, Jumon plays him a holovid of preacher Brin Izisca (which Addar has already seen) thinking it will make things clear. It doesn't.
  • Kill 'Em All: All the pilgrims are killed by Kyaddaks or by accident by the end of their short story.
  • The Skeptic: Addar's mother helped found the Church but he does not believe in it himself and doubts the usefulness of their mission.
  • Religious Robot: Mabo is a full-fledged member of the Church.
  • Super Strength: Mabo is a cargo lifter droid, so he carries the crate of kyber crystals.
  • Vision Quest: The pilgrims embark on their mission because of a vision that Jumon received. However, he admits he was drunk at the time.

B'omarr Order

    In General 

B'omarr Order

Appearances: Return of the Jedi

An order of monks who believe in cutting themselves off from all physical sensation to enhance their minds. The most enlightened monks have their still-living brains removed from their bodies and placed in jars.

  • And I Must Scream: Sometimes brains are removed from bodies before they are truly enlightened, causing them to psychically scream.
  • Brain in a Jar: What happens to the most enlightened monks.
  • Spider Tank: When the enlightened monks need to move around, their brain jars are attached to spider-like droids.
  • The Thing That Would Not Leave: Jabba's Palace was originally their monastery. Jabba moved in and took over but allowed the monks to stay as he enjoyed their gruesome appearance.
