Backed by the criminal underworld, the Sith and Death Watch launch an attack on Mandalore.
Pre Vizsla launches his triumphant return to Mandalore, arriving as savior to his beleaguered home planet that has been set upon by a rash of violent criminals. But what of his plan to betray Maul once the planet is secure?
Insulated from the worst of the Clone Wars fighting, Mandalore has remained neutral in the conflict. When it comes under attack by criminal gangs, it has few allies to turn to, and its pacifist ruler, Duchess Satine, appears powerless.
Duchess Satine implores her people not to give into fear and to stand united in the face of these new dangers. But her high-minded rhetoric means little to the marauding criminals, and it grows evident that only the well-armed defense of Death Watch can protect Mandalore.
After aimless exile on frontier worlds, Death Watch strikes back with a bold return to Mandalore to rid the planet of a criminal invasion. Pre Vizsla carefully carries out the "liberation" mission that paints the armored warriors as heroes.
