Anakin Skywalker, Jedi Knight and hero of the Republic, is challenged by a fledgling hero of the Confederacy! The Confederacy is being provided with newer and more advanced ships from Valahari - a world that has claimed neutrality in the Clone Wars. Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi are dispatched to negotiate with the planet's rulers, but as events unfold and Anakin is framed for a dishonorable act, diplomacy gives way to war! There are heroes on both sides of the Clone Wars, even if some of those heroes have been manipulated by the Sith. This tragic tale of heroism and sacrifice first appeared in issues #10-12 of the comic-book series The Clone Wars.
