Alema Rar-Legacy of The Force
Alem'arar, better known as Alema Rar, was a Rutian Twi'lek Jedi Knight whose hardships in life and inner darkness eventually resulted in a turn to the dark side of the Force. Born into poverty on Ryloth, Alema Rar and her sister were rescued from their bleak existence by Jedi Knight Daeshara'cor; they were then taken to be trained in the ways of the Force on Yavin 4. When the Yuuzhan Vong War broke out in 25 ABY, the Rar sisters soon rose to fame as the founding members of the resistance movement on the occupied planet of New Plympto. It was following the razing of New Plympto and the death of her sister that Rar began to sway close to the dark side. She fought through the rest of the war on the frontlines with distinction, first as a member of the Myrkr strike team, many of whom died on the Mission to Myrkr, and later as a starfighter pilot. Six years after the war had ended, however, Rar and the surviving members of the Myrkr team received a call through the Force from Raynar Thul, who had been abducted by Dark Jedi Lomi Plo and Welk during the mission and presumed dead. Travelling to the Unknown Regions, Alema Rar discovered Thul, now leader of the insectoid Killiks, engaged in a border dispute with the Chiss Ascendancy. The Killik hive mind, as it did so many, soon rendered Rar a Joiner.
However, unlike other Jedi who became Joiners, Alema Rar was made aware of the Dark Nest—overseen by Lomi Plo—which was secretly manipulating Thul. Plo, in fact a Sith Master, ensured that Alema Rar completed her fall to the dark side; the Twi'lek Jedi turned against her former allies, becoming the second Night Herald of the Gorog. By the time the resulting Dark Nest Crisis and Swarm War had concluded, Rar had grown mentally unstable. Mutilated through lightsaber duels with Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa Solo, Rar descended into insanity following the destruction of Plo and the Dark Nest.
The Twi'lek was thought to have been killed on Tenupe; she did, however, survive, returning to civilized space two years later. Her continued existence known only to Jagged Fel, Rar was eager to exact her own form of revenge upon Organa Solo and Skywalker. Once she had allied herself with the resurgent Dark Lady of the Sith Lumiya, Rar hunted her targets during the Confederation-Galactic Alliance War, engaging the Skywalkers and the Solos in a series of skirmishes. When Mara Jade Skywalker was killed, in fact by Lumiya's new Sith apprentice Jacen Solo, Alema was thought to be responsible.
A brief dalliance with the New Sith Order, the possession of an ancient Meditation Sphere, even the knowledge of several advanced Sith techniques—all were ultimately unable to protect Rar; the Dark Jedi was tracked down to the late Lumiya's retreat, and died there at the hands of Jagged Fel.
