The Empire has fallen and a New Republic is born out of the conflict. But in the ashes of civil war, yet another life stirs...
Kueller was one of the very first pupils of Luke Skywalker at the newly formed Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4. However, part way though his training, the ruling government of his home world committed a mass-genocide against it's citizens and thousands, including Kueller's parents, were slaughtered. It was at this point that one of Skywalker's first students, also became one of the first Dark Jedi of the new era.
Using his knowledge of the Force, lightsaber combat, and his profound hatred for those who killed his people, Kueller set out for his homeworld to exact revenge. His growing power made him an unstoppable force and his revenge came swiftly and without mercy.
However, Kueller's twisted mind began to blame the New Republic for not sending aid to his people when their government turned on them. His lust for revenge was now directed at Skywalker himself and the New Republic as a whole. To meet this end, he began to train other misguided Jedi apprentices in the ways of the dark side, seducing them away from Skywalker and into his own wicked faction. One such pupil was Brakiss, who would found the Shadow Academy, an Imperial school for dark Jedi acolytes.
