There’s a New Force Killer Weapon In Star Wars, And It’s Terrifying.
This mysterious new weapon, “The Leveler,” has not yet been fully revealed, but it is rapidly changing the nature of the current Star Wars: The High Republic storyline.
As a master plan unleashed by Marchion Ro, leader of the savage galactic pirates The Nihil, this Force-killer weapon made its first, teaser, debut in the pages of Cavan Scott’s second-wave High Republic novel, The Rising Storm.
However, we learn more about just how game-changing this weapon is in the latest issue of Scott’s The High Republic comic!
(WARNING: SPOILERS FOR STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC AHEAD!)
The Nihil stage a bloody raid on Valo’s “Republic Fair” event in The Rising Storm, which is intended to show the Outer Rim territories the new civilized world The Republic and The Jedi are building.
The Jedi and Republic regroup after the mass casualty event and decide to take the fight to the Nihil.
The Jedi infiltrate and raid a Nihil base in the “Battle of Grizal,” only to discover one of their own – Loden Greatstorm – being held captive.
Marchion Ro uses an artifact to control the Leveler beast he freed from the ice of a distant planet; the Leveler’s initial attack turns Loden Greatstorm to stone, and nearly breaks Bell Zettifar’s mind.
Jedi Knights Kreeve Trennis and bond-twin Terec have gone undercover in the Nihil to learn more about this mysterious weapon in the most recent arc of The High Republic comic series.
When a former Hutt associate exposes Kreeve and Terec, the Nihil punishes them severely.
One of the Nihil’s “Tempest Runners” who wrecked the most havoc on Valo (Lourna Dee) puts the Leveler to the test against the Jedi for the second time, and the results are just as bad!
The most information (and, more importantly, visuals) about what the Leveler does to a Force user like a Jedi can be found in Star Wars: The High Republic (hashtag)11.
Kreeve, like Bell, is nearly driven insane by the Leveler’s visions of pure terror; Terec, like Loden Greatstorm, is turned into stone.
