The Lost Jedi is a duology of Star Wars Legends Gamebooks released in the UK in the early '90s. The player character, the Lost Jedi of the title, is Havet Storm, a Jedi, the hitherto unnamed Rebel who sent the Death Star plans to Princess Leia's ship, and the nemesis of Boba Fett. The series is notable as being the first expanded universe series to kill off a movie character (Han Solo), albeit in a non-canonical bad ending.


The Lost Jedi consists of:

  • Jedi Dawn (1993)
  • The Bounty Hunter (1994)
  • The Lost Jedi Adventure Game Book (a compilation, released 1995)

The Lost Jedi provides examples of:

  • Mad Scientist: One of the antagonists in the first book, the designer of the Death Star's superlaser.

  • Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: Subverted when she realises that you used her to get to the superlaser plans and tries to kill you.
  • No Export for You: The Lost Jedi, like many Gamebook adaptations of popular media franchises, didn't see release outside the UK.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Diamond disguises herself as Facet by wearing a wig. Vermillion/Scarlett/Crimson passes himself off as three seperate people by wearing a different item of red clothing for each persona. Hilariously, Havet can have close interactions with all five depending on the player's choices and not see the similarities.
  • Shout-Out: Your robot dog companion may look familiar - it's even described as a K9-series droid.
  • Unwinnable by Design: One path through The Bounty Hunter results in your character boarding an Imperial Star Destroyer - every choice made from this point on will eventually lead to death.
