Heir to the Empire
The Story So Far
Five years after the Empire’s defeat over Endor in Return of the Jedi (1983) on the ex-Imperial capital of Coruscant, Luke, Leia, and Han are struggling not only with their evolving identities, but also with the demands on their expertise as the militaristic Rebellion aspires to establish a legitimate and functioning government.
Meanwhile, the Empire has been continuously losing territory to the blossoming New Republic. However, tactical genius Grand Admiral Thrawn is uniting Imperial Remnants and piecing together his master plan to utterly destroy what he still views as "the Rebellion".
On the planet of Myrkr, We are introduced to the smuggler Talon Karrde and one of his newest employees, Mara Jade. Talon invites Jade to dinner under the pretence of surprising her with a promotion, but he is covertly attempting to glean more about her mysterious past.
During their dinner, the Chimaera arrives and sends a landing party to the surrounding forest. Karrde reaches out and is met with a stern Captain Pallaeon. Karrde deduces the Empire intends to collect ysalamiri, though he can only guess as to why.

Ysalamiri is such a cool name, but why would they pose a threat to Jedi specifically?
This chapter has cat and mouse all over it.
Jade's hot topic list: pre-Endor Empire, the Emperor, Vader's death, Skywalker
Empire is very concerned with money lately
Does Karrde actually want to promote Jade or is it all a ploy to uncover her past?
Jade "stiffens" as soon as she knows the Imperials are going into the forest; does she realise why before Karrde figures it out?
Toupee fallacy and Karrde on "what most people call luck is often little more than Raw talent combined with the ability to make the most of opportunities".
Karrde slipping Thrawn’s name is either a legitimate gaffe on his part, or a tactic to gain Imperial trust. What do you think?
What is Jade’s history before this?
So jade and luke are gonna kiss i can feel it
