Darth Krayt, the ruthless and unwavering Sith Emperor, knows that to achieve order, sometimes one must first create chaos.
With the galaxy nearly in his grasp, Krayt tires of deposed Emperor Roan Fel's opposition of the Sith. He decrees that this alliance of Imperials loyal to Fel must be broken. Once scattered, Krayt has little doubt his weakened opponents will surrender to his ultimate command. To achieve this end, Krayt has devised a unique mission for a minion of atypical loyalty--Darth Kruhl--who is not only willing to kill, but ready to die.
