PLOT

For generations, the firstborn children of the rulers of the planet Rutan and the moon Senali have been exchanged at the age of seven. This was meant to promote peace and understanding between the societies. Now it has led them to the brink of war.

Leed, the heir to the Rutan throne, does not want to return to his home planet. His father will stop at nothing to get him back. Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi must prevent this rift from turning to bloodshed.

It is their hardest challenge yet.

SUMMARY

Two neighboring planets, Rutan and Senali, had a long history of war. Rutan was a feudal society that valued hunting and culture while Senali was a Polynesian-esque culture that emphasized nature and harmony. However, after a stunning victory by Senali, a truce was agreed upon. The rulers of each planet temporarily exchanged children when they reached the age of seven and raised them in an effort to get the future leaders to appreciate each other. However, the plan backfired after hundreds of years of success when the heir of Rutan decided he wanted to remain on Senali, forsaking his royal title and home planet. This infuriated his father, King Frane, who believed his son had been brainwashed by the Senali. He threatened to declare war on Senali.

Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon arrived to mediate the dispute. After meeting with King Frane, they went to the ocean world of Senali and attempted to convince Leed to return to Rutan, thus avoiding war. Unfortunately, nothing is as simple as the Jedi hoped.
