Star Wars Saga Timeline:
88.5 BBY - 22 BBY
The Jedi Temple is a place of secrets and trust. Inside its walls, a legacy is passed down from generation to generation of peace, justice, and strength. But that legacy can be broken. Sometimes the greatest enemies rise from within…
Lorian Nod is a promising Jedi apprentice. A Padawan named Dooku is his best friend. Under the watchful eye of Yoda, they are preparing to become Jedi Knights. Dooku knows their fate is intertwined… yet he is not prepared for a turn of events that reveals the dark side to him for the first time.
Years later, Dooku is a Jedi Master and Lorian Nod is a pirating outcast. With an unforeseen desire for revenge, Dooku works to thwart his former friend—even if it means crossing his own apprentice Qui-Gon Jinn…
When Qui-Gon himself becomes a Jedi Master, the specter of Lorian Nod still looms. As Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan Kenobi struggle to find their place as Master and Padawan, they must work together to prevent an interplanetary threat—and to outwit a very familiar enemy…
During the Clone Wars, Lorian Nod wants to play a pivotal role as the Republic battles to keep hold of a strategic planet. On one side, Obi-Wan and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, must decide whether they can trust such an infamous figure. On the other side, the now compromised Count Dooku has a score to settle against his old nemesis...
Lorian Nod is a promising Padawan and the best friend of Count Dooku. When Lorian decides to learn the ways of the Sith, Dooku must decide to side with the Jedi Council or his best friend.
Thirteen years later, Dooku has become a Jedi Master and taken Qui-Gon Jinn as his Padawan. Lorian has been exiled from the Jedi Order and become a roaming space-pirate. In a twist of fate, Dooku will once more face his old friend.
Thirty-two years later, Qui-Gon has lost his former apprentice Xanatos to the dark side and has after much thought decided to train Obi-Wan Kenobi. On one of their many missions, they must work together to fight Lorian Nod once again.
Twenty-three years later, the Clone Wars has engulfed the galaxy. Obi-Wan and his own apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, have received a message from Lorian Nod calling for a treaty between himself and the Republic. Obi-Wan and Anakin journey to the planet, even if it is a trap. But the final showdown will be between two former Jedi, Count Dooku and Lorian Nod. And Nod died. But he was redeemed by his heroic effort to stop Dooku.
