Star Wars: Darth Vader #17
It is a time of rebuilding for the Empire. After the Death Star’s destruction, Darth Vader, the Emperor’s chief enforcer, struggled to keep his place after he was seemingly pitted against the operatives of the cyborg specialist, Cylo.
To regain allegiance from the planet Shu-torun, Vader assassinated the royal family and placed its youngest daughter, Trios, on the throne. Nevertheless, talk of rebellion persisted. Tasked to intervene, Vader brought further destruction to the ore-rich planet and promised more if submission was not given.
Meanwhile, Vader’s secret ally, Dr. Aphra, remains in the hands of the rebels, and the Dark Lord has issued a bounty for her recovery.
