“The son of Skywalker must not become a Jedi!” When Luke Skywalker was most vulnerable, when Han Solo became a friend in desperate need and Darth Vader faced his greatest challenge…. When the Empire turned more and more to the forces of the underworld, Xizor, the leader of the underworld and a close confidant of Emperor Palpatine’s, moved in to crush the Empire and the Rebellion in a single stroke. After The Empire Strikes Back and before Return of the Jedi, there was a time when heroes and villains alike moved through the Shadows of the Empire.
