"You're a Skywalker, Cade! Act like one!"
Kol Skywalker[src]

Darth Cade born Cade Skywalker was a Human male bounty hunter, smuggler, and pirate, who in his youth was once the Jedi Padawan of Wolf Sazen. The son of Jedi Master Kol Skywalker and Nyna Calixte (also known as Morrigan Corde), Cade was also a direct descendant of Luke and Anakin Skywalker.[6] Cade was also the nephew of Nat Skywalker (also known as 'Bantha' Rawk) and his wife Droo Rawk, half-brother of Gunn Yage (though neither knew of the other's existence), and stepcousin of Annah, Skeeto, and Micah Rawk.

Raised as a Jedi by his father on Ossus, Cade turned his back on his heritage after being traumatized by watching his father's death at the hands of the One Sith. He eventually became a pirate and bounty hunter. After his existence and unique Force powers were discovered by Sith Lord Darth Krayt, Cade was unwillingly pulled into galactic affairs. Caught up in the power struggle between the Sith and the exiled Emperor Fel, Cade became willing to do whatever it took to ensure he was left alone.Cade Skywalker was captured by the Sith and taken to Kessel.

After being briefly captured by the Sith, Cade escaped and was reunited with his childhood sweetheart, Imperial Knight Azlyn Rae. Together, they participated in a successful mission that saw the death of Darth Krayt. However, Krayt's traitorous advisor conspired to keep this fact a secret and appointed himself Regent over Krayt's Empire. After saving Azlyn's life, against her wishes, Cade and Azlyn's relationship fell apart. Angered by the destruction his actions continually caused, Cade left for Tatooine, where he began raiding Black Sun shipments. These events drew the attention of both his mother and his half-sister Gunn Yage.

After leaving Tatooine, Cade and his crew accepted a recovery mission on Wayland, site of the failed Ossus Project. There Cade encountered Darth Maladi, who was seeking to perfect a new Sith bioweapon. Cade attempted to heal Blue, who been implanted with the weapon, but to no avail. Wolf Sazen tracked Cade to Wayland and convinced him to use the light-side of the Force to heal Blue, which was successful. As a result of these events, Cade finally rejected the dark-side but resolved to not rejoin the Jedi Order, believing the Force shaped him for a different destiny, to destroy the One Sith which eventually caused his fall to the dark side when he vengfully killed Krayt in front of the Sith Lords followers. In striking down the Dark Lord down in a typical Sith fashion he became the Dark Lord himself and forced all Sith to follow him but even a change in leadership did not effect the outcome of the war because a few days later an Empire in Exile and Galactic Alliance Remnant strike force pushed the Sith led Empire to the core worlds were a great battle occured over Coruscant. Meanwhile an Imperial Knight and Jedi taskforce led by Master Wolf Sazen landed on the surface to destroy the last of the sith little did they know the sith changed leadership and when they reached The Temple of the Sith they faced the new Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Cade. After failing to return Cade to the light side they attacked him but were unable to defeat him and eventually all but one were left Master Sazen himself after a lengthly Dual Sazen realised he could not hope to defeat Cade and fled. After the dual ended Sazen contacted Emperor Fel and told him what happened Fel then said the only way to destroy the sith was by base delta zero but before the order was carried out The Mynock piloted by Deliah Blue arrived and rescued Cade. After attempting to leave orbit they received a transmission from Gar Stazi ordering The Mynock to give Darth Cade up but and they refused then Gar Stazi apoligized saying that if they did not surrender then he must open fire but before he could The Mynock docked with The Star Destroyer War Hammer and fled the system. Deliah wanted to stay by Cade's side but The Sith Lord refused saying that he did not want to get her involved and said he would return one day and then she could be by his side as Empress of the galaxy shortly after she departed a fleet of Star Destoyer's loyal to Fel came out of hyperspace and opened fire on the War Hammer and Darth Cade's other remaining ships but in the cross fire hit The Mynock once Darth Cade realised he used the force to to project a wormhole that destroyed all the Fel loyal ship's in his anger. After the battle Cade ordered all Star Destroyer's to make a blind jump to hyperspace and hoping to escape Fel Imperial forces after months of runing and hiding the remaining ships came across a planet that was mostly abandoned and very strong in the Dark Side of the Force the planet was called Dromund Kaas Darth Cade decided it was the perfect place to rebuild just like Sith Empire of old did.


[hide]*1 Biography


Pre-birth (before 130 ABY)[2]EditEdit

"Is this—is this happening now, or in the future?"

[3]Cade Skywalker appears in a vision.Added by RedemptionThousands of years before Cade Skywalker's birth, he appeared in a vision to the Jedi Master Q'Anilia, along with his ancestors Anakin Skywalker (as Darth Vader) and Luke Skywalker, as well as Zayne Carrick; all four of these individuals would later be affected by the Muur Talisman. The vision also showed Karness Muur, hundreds of Rakghouls, and a burning city.

Early days[4]EditEdit

"Listen to the Force, Cade. A Jedi's first concern is to preserve life."
―Kol Skywalker[src]

Cade Skywalker was the son of Kol Skywalker,[2] a powerful member of the Jedi High Council,[7] and Morrigan Corde,[4] an Imperial agent. However, his mother left when he was just a baby, as she didn't want to become close to him.[4] From an early age, Cade was trained as a Jedi by various teachers, including the Whiphid K'Kruhk.[5] Eventually Cade was apprenticed to his father's former apprentice, Wolf Sazen.[3]

He spent at least some of his childhood at the New Jedi Temple on Coruscant, where he explored the secrets of its foundations and the outer city with the young Shado Vao. Cade believed that his father was unaware of this, despite the fact that he and Shado fell asleep at the midday meal.[8] On Ossus, Cade became close to another Padawan, Azlyn Rae. One time, Cade kissed her on the cheek.

During his time as a Padawan, Cade, Wolf, his father and Shado visited Wayland, one of the planets for Kol's Ossus Project. But unfortunately, the project had been sabotaged and Wayland became covered in Vong-like life. The natives tried to attack the Yuuzhan-Vong that accompanied the Jedi, but the group managed to escape and were picked up by an Imperial star destroyer under the command of Moff Nyna Calixte (secretly Cade's mother).

Massacre at Ossus[5]EditEdit

"I will not let you go, Master!"
―Cade reviving Wolf Sazen [src]

[6]Cade shortly after his father's death.Added by RedemptionAs a fourteen year-old[source?] Padawan in 130 ABY, Cade was involved in the battle to defend the Jedi Praxeum on Ossus from the Sith. His master, Wolf Sazen, ordered Cade and Shado Vao to evacuate the planet in a Jedi Shuttle full of younglings. However, Cade desperately wanted to stay and fight with his father, Kol. He argued the point, but eventually obeyed his father and went to the shuttle.[3]

Just after boarding the shuttle, Cade sensed that his master had been struck down, and that his father was now fighting the Sith alone. Much to Shado's dismay, Cade left the shuttle to fight by his father's side.[3]

As soon as Cade joined Kol however, he was ordered to take Wolf back to the shuttle. Cade was devastated, but did as he was told. Aboard the shuttle which was now leaving Ossus, Wolf died in the arms of Cade. Cade could not accept that however, and focused his anger to the point where he used a power to successfully revive his master.[3] [7]Cade Skywalker in 137 ABY.Added by RedemptionAt that point, Cade felt the death of his father. Overwhelmed with anger, Cade promised revenge on Darth Nihl, the Sith that had murdered Kol. Cade left the shuttle one final time in a X-83 TwinTail starfighter, to kill the Sith. He cleared a path for the shuttle, in an effort to allow its escape into hyperspace. Cade's fighter was shot down by a Predator-class fighter,[3] though he managed to survive by sealing his flight suit and jettisoning just as his ship exploded. Withdrawing from the Force so the Sith wouldn't sense him, he fell into deep meditation in order to conserve oxygen. He awoke three days later floating over Ossus, where he was picked up by Rav and his crew.[9]

Sith attention[8]EditEdit

"Cade used to be the best hunter around, but he's lost his edge."
"Not Cade's fault, Syn. Something in him is just… broken."
Jariah Syn and Deliah Blue[src]

When Cade revived his master with an unknown Force power, Darth Krayt sensed a dark murmur in the Force, and recognized that it came from a Jedi, not a Sith. Krayt vowed to find this Jedi and lure him completely to the dark side, calling him a "dark light in the Force".[3] Three days after the massacre, the pirate Rav found Cade floating in the debris around the planet. It was his future crewman Jariah Syn who convinced Rav to rescue Cade. Soon after, he apprenticed himself to Rav and joined his crew.[9]

Exile from the Order[9]EditEdit

"Why do you use those deathsticks?"
"They keep you away."
Luke Skywalker's Force ghost and Cade[src]

Some years passed after the Massacre at Ossus, and Cade had freed himself from Rav's debt. Cade had become captain of a light freighter called Mynock whose crew included Deliah Blue, the ship's mechanic, and co-pilot Jariah Syn. He hid both his last name and his Jedi ability from everyone who knew him, especially his crew mates[2]. One of Cade and his crew's favorite haunts during this time was Rik's Cantina on Coruscant. [10]Cade is visited by the Force ghost of his ancestor, Luke Skywalker.Added by RedemptionAround 137 ABY the crew of Mynock was contracted by Rav to locate bond-skipper Naxy Screeger on the planet Lok. After locating him, the group also came across a Jedi healer named Hosk Trey'lis. Cade prevented Syn from killing the Jedi, his reasoning that Jedi were worth more alive than dead. The group left Lok with both Screeger and Trey'lis in tow. After turning in their bounties on Socorro, Rav paid them in death sticks, which, though pleasing Cade, enraged the rest of the crew.[10]

Around this time Cade was being haunted by the Force ghost of his ancestor Luke Skywalker, who was pleading for Cade to return to his Jedi legacy. However, Cade was growing increasingly agitated with these visitations, using death sticks to block them out, and even going so far as threatening to end his own life.[11]

As the Mynock's crew prepared for liftoff from Socorro, they were approached by Princess Marasiah Fel and her companion Astraal Vao. The Princess was demanding passage to Vendaxa, and the two were being pursued by the Sith Darth Talon. She tried using a mind trick on him but Cade, being a Jedi, was resistant to it until he saw the Sith. He initiated emergency take-off procedures, and headed toward Vendaxa, intent on delivering the Princess to her father, so that he could get paid, and then sell the both of them to the Empire, earning enough credits to be out of Rav's debt.[11]

Reunion on Vendaxa[11]EditEdit

[12]Cade uses the Force to hurl Darth Talon away.Added by Redemption:"Ah, shut up and kill something!"

―Cade Skywalker to Jariah Syn while being attacked by Darth Talon[src]

Astraal Vao, having pre-arranged a rendezvous with her brother Shado if ever they were in trouble,[11] guided the crew of Mynock and Princess Fel to the crash site where Shado and Astraal's parents died.[12] There, they came under attack from an acklay, and only the timely arrival of Shado and Wolf Sazen saved Astraal from being impaled upon the acklay's fore-claw. With the immediate danger over, Princess Marasiah set about arranging safe passage with the two Jedi, revealing that she knew of Mynock crew's intention to turn her in for the bounty on her head.[12]

Not wanting to be recognized by his former Master, Cade stayed in the shadows and did not argue with the Princess. However, Jariah called him on his wanting to cut his losses, using his name as he did so which attracted the attention of the two Jedi. Turning to face the Jedi, Cade calmly stared down his former Master and admitted his name was Cade. If Wolf recognized his former pupil after their years apart, he gave no sign; instead choosing to turn to direct Princess Fel to where he and Shado had secreted their own ship. A sudden explosion signaled that ship's destruction, however and was quickly followed by an attack by Darth Talon, who used the dark side to provoke a number of native fauna into attacking alongside her.[12]

Talon singled out Wolf Sazen and brought him down with Force lightning, intending to kill him, but Marasiah intervened, hoping for revenge for the death of her Master, Elke Vetter. Sia was no match for the Sith, however and Talon swatted her away with the Force. Wrapped in Force lightning, Wolf was still able to ask Cade to take the Princess to safety, but the captain of Mynock only stood by numbly, his mind flashing back through the years to a similar situation on Ossus.[12]

Snapping back to the present with an expletive, Cade unloaded both barrels of his Rawk chopped special at the Sith, and after a moment both Blue and Syn joined him, with Blue declaring they'd all gone insane. Syn then told her that it was a "good" insane. Darth Talon however, easily deflected their blasts and disarmed them with a wave of her hand then advanced upon them, her lightsaber at the ready.[12]

With an angry cry, Cade used the Force to lift some nearby wreckage and hurled it and Talon into the nearby forest. Retrieving his blaster, Cade calmly directed the stunned onlookers to head for Mynock. However, they were soon to discover that Talon had sabotaged Mynock, forcing them to remain on Vendaxa until repairs could be made. Meanwhile, Darth Talon remained hidden in the shadows nearby.[12]

After the battle, Cade had a conversation with his former master, telling him that he wasted years looking for a man that didn't exist. That was followed by an argument with his friends, with Syn pulling a blaster on him. Marasiah Fel approached him, saying she knew he was a Skywalker. She then went on saying how she could disappear from her destiny. But she also told him that she would not run away from her responsibilities.[12]

Imperial Knights arrived, but they were shot down by the Sith. They survived the crash, and the battle with the Sith had begun. Cade rushed to battle with his blaster telling Syn and Blue to lift off. When Cade entered the battlefield, he was flooded with the memories of the Massacre at Ossus. He was so dazed that he did not see a Sith approaching from behind.[13] It was Princess Marasiah that saw the Sith and charged at him, cutting down the Sith and saving Cade's life, but not without injury. When Cade, holding her injured form in his arms, asked her why she did it, she said:

"Told you… had to make it right… even if it's only… one… life…"
Marasiah Fel[src]

She then fell silent. Cade called her lightsaber to him using the Force. Ignoring his oath never to pick up a lightsaber again, he proclaimed after igniting it, "I have had enough".[13]

"No one dies for me! Never again!"
―Cade Skywalker[src]

Cade then attacked Darth Nihl. During the fight, Cade told Nihl he saw him kill his father at Ossus. Nihl said he killed many Jedi that day, and that his father might have been one. Cade shouted that his father was Kol Skywalker, and began to use his rage against Nihl, despite warnings from Master Sazen. Jariah Syn entered the fight and hit the Sith with a blaster bolt, but promptly got Force pushed away. Afterward, Cade kicked Nihl off a cliff, and got everyone on board the Mynock.[14]

While aboard the Mynock, Cade heard that Marasiah was dying. When Cade said he could help her, Antares Draco attacked him, blaming him for the condition Marasiah was in. Draco eventually stood down and let Cade help Marasiah. Cade healed her with the lightning technique he used to heal Wolf Sazen years earlier.[14]

Vendaxa aftermath and further Jedi training[13]EditEdit

"Kark this 'destiny' sludge. I make my own way!"
―Cade to Darth Vader's Force ghost[src]

[14]Cade Skywalker hallucinates a vision of Mara Jade Skywalker.Added by RedemptionAfter the group arrived on Bastion, Cade and Blue slept together. The following morning, he slipped away from Blue and Jariah Syn, leaving them on their own. He stated to Wolf Sazen that he could not trust Syn anymore. Cade then offered a ride to Sazen and Shado Vao, but told them to not get any ideas regarding him rejoining the Jedi Order.[14] He later found out that Fel placed five homing beacons on the Mynock, who was wary of Krayt finding him. Fel expected Skywalker to find one or two, but Cade disabled all of them.[15]

Later, Cade, Wolf, and Shado traveled to the Wheel.[15] Unknowingly, Cade was being pursued by numerous agents of Krayt's faction of the Galactic Empire, including his mother, Morrigan Corde, a deep cover Imperial agent who had been reactivated by Nyna Calixte.[15].The two Imperial agents suspected he was either going to Hapes, which was neutral during the Sith-Imperial War, or Ossus. But Morrigan decided to quit hunting her son, so when they landed on Ossus, she killed the Imperial agent accompanying her, Jor Torlin.[16]

Cade left Shado and Wolf on the Wheel, then proceeded to Ossus, where, after ingesting several death sticks, he had visions of Mara Jade and Anakin Skywalker, who then morphed into Darth Vader and warned him of the perils of falling to the dark side. He was then found by the Whiphid Jedi Master K'Kruhk, a one-time teacher of Cade, who healed his mental trauma. Sazen and Vao then arrived as well.[5] [15]Luke's Force ghost tells Cade to save Hosk Trey'lis.Added by RedemptionCade then asked Sazen to complete his training. Sazen accepted, and Cade began his training again under the tutelage of both Sazen and K'Kruhk. During a lightsaber practice session with Vao, they both fell into a repository of priceless Jedi artifacts, whereupon they were attacked by two Yuuzhan Vong, Liaan Lah and Choka Skell.[5]

Master Shaper Nei Rin ordered her two Vong bodyguards to cease their attack on the two Jedi. Rin, once a friend of Kol and the leader of the terraforming project on Ossus, revealed herself as the keeper of the Jedi artifacts left on Ossus after the massacre, and claimed that Cade should become their keeper.[9]

Cade refused, and after being confronted by Master Sazen about his fears, was once more visited by his ancestor, Luke Skywalker, who told him to fix his mistake of turning in fellow Jedi Hosk Trey'lis by rescuing him on Coruscant. As Cade prepared to leave for Coruscant, Rin gave him his father's lightsaber, and K'Kruhk gave him R2-D2, a loyal friend and companion to the Skywalkers for many years, to serve aboard his ship.[9]

Mission on Coruscant[16]EditEdit

"How do you like me now schutta?!"
―Cade to Darth Talon[src]

[17]A rematch between Cade and Darth Talon.Added by RedemptionCade's approach to Coruscant was detected by Imperial forces and by Darth Krayt himself, but Cade was able to elude Skull Squadron and hide in the depths of the Coruscant Underworld. Leaving R2-D2 in charge of the Mynock, but not before leaving a message for his friends Jariah Syn and Deliah Blue. Cade walked toward Rik's Cantina, blasting a would-be mugger and scaring off his confederates in the process.[8]

At the cantina, Cade encountered Chak and Kee, two old friends. But he had no clue where Syn and Blue had taken Chak's ship, the Grinning Liar. His impertinence offended the Wookiee, but amused Queen Jool, the Hutt owner of the establishment. He left the access codes to his ship with her in case he did not return, instructing her to turn them over to his former crew mates if they showed up.[8]

Cade entered the Temple of the Sith using secret routes he discovered when he lived there, and reaching with his Force senses, found Hosk manacled to a wall inside the structure. When he released the healer, the Bothan attempted to warn him that he had given in and betrayed his would-be rescuer, but Cade would have none of it, retorting "no one dies for me."[8]

As they made their way out, they were ambushed by Darth Talon, who waited for them by a long causeway. She subdued Hosk with a Force push, but enraged Cade by telling him he and his quarry were both wanted alive. Cade's eyes shifted, signifying his enthrallment by the dark side, and he overpowered the Twi'lek. His victory faded fast, as Darth Nihl, suddenly appeared and choked him into submission. Nihl went on to inform Krayt of his victory. Meanwhile on Ossus, Wolf, meditating on the Force, received a vision: Cade turned toward him, his face half in shadow with the dark side gleaming in his eyes.[8]

Trapped by the Sith[18]EditEdit

"What do you know about the Jedi—besides wanting them all exterminated?"
―Cade to Darth Krayt[src]

Following his capture, Cade was tortured by Darth Maladi using a lethal dose of ixetal cilona, though the poison had no effect due to Cade's past usage of death sticks and powerful Force abilities boosting his immunity to it. Darth Krayt acknowledged that this Skywalker had more power than he had ever seen in any Jedi. Krayt wanted Cade to join him, but Cade refused the offer from his father's true murderer.[17] [19]Cade as a Sith apprentice.Added by JMASKrayt had imprisoned Syn and Blue, and while they were in the Sith's hands, Maladi implanted Yuuzhan Vong Yorik-Kul coral seeds into them that mutated their bodies using the dark side. Cade had no option but to help both of his friends by using his anger to cure them at a great cost.[17]

Krayt invited Cade with Talon and his most loyal Sith adviser, Darth Wyyrlok, to his chambers. There, Krayt surprised Cade by showing him Kol Skywalker's lightsaber encased in transparisteel, giving Cade's father a place of honor. Cade was further surprised when Krayt revealed his knowledge about the Jedi and his true identity of A'Sharad Hett.[17]

Krayt then recited the story of his duel on Tatooine against Obi-Wan Kenobi, near the Lars homestead, and how he was cast out of both Tusken and Jedi society. After finishing his story, Krayt found Cade to be barely moved. Talon then attacked Cade after he mocked Krayt, and she was nearly killed when he used his powers to re-open her recently healed wounds.[4] [20]Cade on the Embrace of Pain.Added by RedemptionKrayt, however, prevented this and asked of Cade that he allow the Dark Lord to focus his anger into strength through the Sith teachings. Cade agreed, and was then ordered to heal Darth Talon, as she would become his Sith Master.[4] During his Sith training, Cade developed an intimate relationship as well as a deep bond with his master that was created when he healed her. They presumably slept together, however after Talon left the bed, she told Krayt that he was just pretending to be like them. Still, Krayt was sure that he would fall to their side permanently.[18]The next day, Krayt placed Cade in the Embrace of Pain while he continued to tell him about his own fall to the dark side. After the Embrace Cade finally decided to escape the Temple, but was caught by Talon. He was taken back to Lord Krayt. [19]

Duel in the Temple of the Sith[21]EditEdit

"If I die here then I die as who I am Controlled by nobody. You? Without me you will die and it won't even be as Darth Krayt or even A'Shard Hett! You'll die as some mindless Vong growth!"
―Cade Skywalker enraging Darth Krayt[src]

Krayt grabbed Cade by the throat and told Cade that his pretense at being a Sith was over and that he must now become Sith. Krayt ordered Cade to kill Hosk Trey'lis or die, but Cade refused to kill the Jedi. Krayt then killed Trey'lis himself, evoking Cade's anger. But Cade then received a vision of his father, telling him "That which can heal, can also break." Using his power, Cade shattered the transparisteel case containing his father's lightsaber and stabbed Talon through the stomach as she tried to attack him and he engaged Nihl in a lightsaber duel. Drawing on his anger, Cade's eyes changed to the sulfuric red they had been once before.[19]

Cade bested Nihl by severing his arm and throwing him against the wall, finally defeating the Nagai Sith Lord. Krayt ordered Cade to kill his Hand in an effort to tip Cade over to the dark side permanently. To Krayt's surprise, Cade refused because that was what Krayt wanted him to do, and turned his blade on the Dark Lord himself. During their duel, as Krayt continued to try to persuade Cade to give into the dark side, Cade said he saw through the Force just how sick Krayt really was and questioned whether the rest of the Sith would be willing to follow him if they knew his true condition. He taunted Krayt, saying that even if he died, he would die as himself, but if Krayt killed him, then he'd condemn himself to death as a mindless Yuuzhan Vong growth.[20]

Just as their duel was reaching its climax, Morrigan Corde blasted open the window behind them, shooting Krayt in the back. Cade then jumped out and was rescued by Jariah Syn aboard the Mynock, who pulled him inside. The Mynock then escaped the planet and jumped to hyperspace, but not before Corde revealed herself to Cade over a comlink. Corde revealed herself to be his mother, but when Cade demanded some answers, she replied that he wouldn't be getting any. Unbeknownst to him, Krayt was planning on breaking him, using his power to heal himself and then kill him.[20]

Taking a break[22]EditEdit

"Figure it's time to get ourselves lost in the galaxy for a while."
―Cade to Jariah Syn[src]

Cade worked with Chak, Kee and Syn, in an attempt to recover the Grinning Liar from Rav. After a brief fight, Rav handed the ship over and was forced to swear the Bloody Bones oath to the Jedi. Cade however had no idea that Rav was reporting to Maladi. After placing Naxy in the cargo hold, Cade set course for Rawk's Nest, on the planet Iego. He apologized to Blue for what happened with the Sith and she gave him a kiss on the cheek. They assisted "Bantha" Rawk in defending his home against some Black Sun mercenaries.[21]

While the others enjoyed a pool party, Cade had a talk with Uncle Bantha, who he knew as Nat Skywalker. Cade revealed he ran into his mother. Nat then told him about the history between his parents, and that his mother had abandoned them. When Cade saw the massacre of New Coral City, he also saw an arrest warrant for him stating that he was a terrorist and was wanted for the attack on the Sith Temple. Cade then confirmed his last name to his cousins. Bantha yelled at him for not thinking and they punched each other.[22]

During the night Cade "acted like he had seen a ghost." He sneaked off to the Mynock,and the spirits of Luke and Kol Skywalker tried to counsel him. Luke told him to use meditation to clear his head but Cade thought of using his Sith abilities. His father warned him of the dark side and that the technique he showed him in the Temple of the Sith was for defense. The ghosts warned him of events that he must be ready for. When their spirits departed, Cade used his death stick to get relief for one night. Shortly thereafter he walked out, stoned, and was attacked by a masked figure who followed him from Socorro. He was saved by the timely intervention of his uncle. But the figure was Azlyn Rae, an old friend of his and fellow Padawan before the Sith attacked Ossus.[22]

A scouting party of Imperials showed up looking for Cade, having heard from Black Sun. Cade was determined to leave, but Bantha told him to hide. Rae sent the Imperials off with a mind trick. Afterward, Bantha told him to change his name, looks, ship and friends and to not ever to use the Force again. But Cade determined that there was only one way to end the threat of the Sith: kill Darth Krayt. Again, Bantha berated him for trying to do something stupid. But Cade had a point—the New Sith Order was having internal conflicts and with Krayt dead, they'd collapse on each other and everyone would leave him alone. But he needed allies; he didn't trust either Roan Fel or Gar Stazi and he believed that there were no Jedi to find until Bantha revealed the existence of the Hidden Temple.[22]

The Hidden Temple[23]EditEdit

"Nice temple you got here, Master Saa. Hope you're planning to take out the trash soon, though. The stink of crimson armor always makes me gag."
―Cade referring to the Imperial Knights[src]

[24]Cade meets the new Jedi Council.Added by RedemptionGuided by Bantha, Cade along with the Mynock's crew and Azlyn Rae went to the newly revealed Hidden Jedi Temple (Which was founded by Bantha during his Jedi career as a refuge for the Order during a worst case scenario) on the planet of Taivas.

When the Mynock landed, Cade and his crew discovered that not only were Wolf Sazen and Shado Vao in the temple, but also that they were followed by Imperial Knights Marasiah Fel, Antares Draco, and Ganner Krieg, who were guided there by Azlyn. After a brief confrontation between the Jedi and the Imperial Knights, both parties put away their weapons and began to talk at Wolf's request. Cade immediately realized it was Azlyn who "betrayed" them and after he demanded to know why, he was told by Princess Fel that Azlyn was in fact an Imperial Knight. When the Imperial Knights explained that they were on a mission of peace, Wolf informed them that the Jedi Council would receive them. This new Jedi Council was formed by Jedi Masters K'Kruhk, Tili Qua and T'ra Saa, two of whom had fought in the Clone Wars.

Cade revealed to the council that Darth Krayt was none other than fellow Clone Wars veteran and former Jedi Knight A'Sharad Hett and how ill he was. He also proposed to the council his plan to assassinate Krayt, arguing that the former Jedi Knight had no heir as Dark Lord of the Sith, and that it was his will alone that kept his followers from turning on each other. However, the council refused, saying that assassination was not the Jedi way and as Jedi, they respected all life - even the Sith to which Cade retorted that Krayt had already killed countless innocents trying achieve his "vision". He further argued that maybe it was the will of the Force that Krayt be destroyed and maybe assassination should become the Jedi way before Krayt tracks him down and forces him to use his healing powers.[23]

While the Council was deliberating Cade went with Shado for a ride. Shado believed that Cade's Sith training had made him dangerous to the Jedi as well as himself, and confronted Cade to prove that he could no longer choose between Light and Dark. Cade defeated his friend and began to use the Dark side against him, however he stopped before killing him to prove that he was still under control. When the two returned to the Temple, Wolf revealed that he had sensed the confrontation. He implored Cade not to use his Dark Side techniques again, but Cade refused saying that both sides of the Force were just tools for him. Wolf began to fear even more for his troubled old apprentice.[24]

The Council ultimately decided not to go through with the assassination plan, for if Krayt wound up dead, someone else might take his place or it might splinter the Sith and make them more dangerous. They preferred to let the Sith undermine each other. Despite this, Cade decided to do it with the help of his crew. Draco, Krieg, and Rae joined him under orders from Fel, and Shado also decided to come with them, hoping that Cade would not become Krayt.[24]

An ancient threat[25]EditEdit

"I don't care Morne. I'm just looking to get clear of Krayt—and that means I have to kill him. If you or your Sithy bauble can help do that, fine. Meanwhile—leave my crew alone. Remember what I said about the black hole."
―Cade, to Celeste Morne[src]

[26]Cade infected by the Rakghoul plague.Added by RedemptionCade and his allies headed for the Deep Core. While journeying there, Azlyn tried to talk to him, but he wouldn't listen to her. While meditating, Cade received a vision of a Jedi. After this, the Mynock was pulled out of hyperspace and into a Pellaeon-class Star Destroyer: the Iron Sun. Once inside, Cade and his allies split up to explore the ship.

Cade and his party eventually came across a group of Rakghouls. During a brief skirmish with them, Cade was bitten and Azlyn was scratched. The skirmish ended when a Jedi named Celeste Morne (who was the Jedi Cade had envisioned) regained control of the rakghouls. Celeste saw that Cade and Azlyn had been infected by the Rakghoul plague and imprisoned them. Celeste explained her past: her meeting with Jedi Padawan Zayne Carrick, the Muur Talisman attaching itself to her, and her confrontations with Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker.

When the plague began to transform him and Azlyn, Cade asked if the plague was a disease or the work of the Force. Celeste said it was an affliction, and Cade realized he could cure it. He used his healing power to rid himself and Azlyn of the plague, impressing both Celeste and the spirit of Karness Muur. Celeste agreed to join Cade and his allies in their quest to assassinate Krayt.

The party journeyed to Had Abbadon, where they attacked the local Imperial base. After taking the base, Celeste allowed one Sith to escape to tell Krayt about the attack. The party then settled in to wait for Krayt.

During this time, Azlyn tried to kill Celeste and destroy the Muur Talisman since she believed Morne was evil. Cade prevented her from doing so. However, during an argument, Cade and Azlyn both realized that their old feelings for each other had resurfaced. They spent the night together, until the voice of Karness Muur interrupted them. Cade went to confront Morne. He told her that if Muur continued to mess with him and his friends, he would shove her and the talisman into a rocket and send it into a black hole.

Later, Celeste sent Krayt a message while using Muur's voice (whether she was under Muur's influence or faking it is unknown). Celeste showed Krayt that Cade was her prisoner and that Muur had the power to help him. Krayt took the bait, and traveled to Had Abbadon with Darths Maladi, Talon, Stryfe, and Wyyrlok. Once there, Cade and his allies sprang the trap. Celeste set her rakghouls on Krayt while Cade dueled with Talon. Talon told him that the bond he created was driving him closer to the dark side. Unfortunately, Muur declared his usefulness over and had the rakghouls turn on his companions. [27]Cade uses the Force to destroy the Muur Talisman.Added by RedemptionAfter once again defeating Talon, Cade dueled Darth Stryfe, and quickly defeated him with some help from Syn's explosives. Soon after this, Muur blasted both Darth Krayt and Azlyn Rae with Force lightning. Celeste then regained control and Force pushed Krayt off a cliff. Cade was enraged that Azlyn had been hurt.

Celeste told Cade that she had never met anyone like him: no matter how close he walked to the dark side, he wasn't at all tempted by the Muur Talisman. Celeste asked Cade to kill her, and he complied, igniting his lightsaber through her chest. The Talisman attached itself to him, and Muur said he was finally free. But Cade proved to truly be above Muur's influence, and used the Force to obliterate the Talisman, destroying Karness Muur forever.

Cade rushed to Azlyn and used his healing powers, but she was too heavily wounded for them to completely work. Shado advised Cade to let her go, but he refused, saying he would keep trying until he could find a medical facility. Blue suggested taking Rae to his aunt Droo, and Cade agreed. As they tried to leave, Krieg and Draco tried to come with them. Cade refused to allow them to since they tried to secure the Talisman for Fel, and Shado Force pushed them away when Krieg tried to prevent them from taking Azlyn. Cade then boarded the ship with his friends and set a course for Kiffex.

Little did Cade know that Darth Krayt had survived the fall, only to be betrayed shortly afterwards by his most trusted advisor, Darth Wyyrlok III, who finally killed the Dark Lord by blasting him with Force lightning.

A desperate plan[28]EditEdit

"Bantha! You have to promise to save her. No matter how. Promise!"
―Cade, to "Bantha" Rawk[src]

[29]Azlyn Rae "thanks" Cade Skywalker for her new armor.Added by RedemptionCade continued to use his healing powers to keep Azlyn alive until they reached Kiffex. At one point, Azlyn regained consciousness, and told Cade to allow her to die. Cade refused, saying he couldn't lose her again. After being forced down by a storm, Nat and Droo came to get them. Droo put Azlyn in a healing pod and Nat promised Cade they would save her. Cade then collapsed from exhaustion.

Cade dreamed about the night he and Azlyn spent together on Had Abbadon, which quickly turned into a nightmare of her being wounded. When he woke up, he went to help Nat and Droo. But Nat refused to allow him to help since his healing powers were pushing him to the dark side. With nothing else to do, Cade and Jariah decided to go to a local town to relax. He also told Shado, who was returning to the Hidden Temple, to tell the Jedi Council that Krayt was dead.

Meanwhile, Droo and Nat couldn't heal Azlyn because she was pushing their attempts away. Droo was ready to give up, but Nat refused, saying Cade had seen too many broken promises. He decided on a desperate plan: create a life saving suit for Azlyn, similar to the one worn by Darth Vader.[25]

Cade and Jariah ended up starting a fight in town. When the Kiffu Guardians showed up, Ahnah among them, showed up, Cade wouldn't stop fighting, even turning his weapon on Ahnah. Only Jariah standing between them got him to calm down.

When Cade returned, Azlyn confronted him. She had been placed in a life-preserving suit that was constantly pumping bacta through her system. Azlyn was furious that Cade hadn't let her go, and condemned her to live in a suit of armor. Also, Nat and Droo said Cade had lied to them, and Droo said he couldn't come back for a long time. Cade, Jariah and Deliah left Kiffex in the Mynock.[26]

On the Skywalkers' home planet[30]EditEdit

"You've proclaimed who you are. But the Galaxy is not going to leave you alone. Ever. You're stuck where you were seven years ago, Cade--Alone, adrift among the stars, high above the open grave of Ossus. Waiting for Death. Continue as you are and this is your future. Even when you think you have lost everything, there is always more to lose. Is this what you want?"
―Luke Skywalker trying to guide Cade away from the Dark Side[src]

[31]Cade's mother, Morrigan Corde, means business.Added by MauserCade, Jariah, and Deliah decided to raid Black Sun shipments on Tatooine, and sell them to Muun fence Muz under Cade's alias of his late ancestor: Luke Skywalker. However, the Mynock lacked a trivalve for takeoff, stranding the trio. Deliah impersonated Imperial Mission member Astraal Vao to obtain it.

Afterward, at a cantina called Gusha's Luck, Cade met his half-sister, Gunn "Gunner" Yage (though neither knew of the relation), a pilot of Skull Squadron. Yage had been sent by her mother, Moff Nyna Calixte, to track the smuggler. Yage flirted with Cade, then spiked his drink, causing Skywalker to fall unconscious. Yage held Cade captive in stun cuffs, which would shock him if he struggled, as she began to transport him to Moff Nieve Gromia, the Empire's custodian for the Outer Rim. Unknown to Yage, Gromia had sent three Black Sun assassins to hunt down and eliminate both Yage and Skywalker: a Blood Carver named Ku Vrat, and an Anzati married couple named Sint and Nakia Yoru.

Deciding to show Gunn a little trick, Cade used the Force to choke her. Despite this, she attempted to shoot him, which allowed the three assassins to topple Yage's landspeeder and attack the pair. The pair took cover behind the downed vehicle. Noticing that a sandstorm was approaching, the two enemies found they had no choice but to rely on each other. The pair found shelter in the old abandoned Lars homestead and decided to rest until the storm died. During the sandstorm the assassins lost track of them. [32]Cade's potential "future" with the Sith.Added by RedemptionDuring their time in the homestead, Gunn mentioned she was Rulf Yage's daughter. When Cade heard this, he went ballistic at her, calling her father a butcher for what he had done to the Jedi on Ossus. Yage defended her father by saying the Sith had ordered the attack and that her father was never the same after he had carried out their order. Eventually, the two fell asleep. When the sandstorm ended, Cade was awoken by the spirit of Luke Skywalker. After several visions of Luke's old family, Cade attacked his ancestor, but calmed down after Luke refused to fight. Luke then showed Cade a vision of himself as a Sith with the corpses of everyone he cared about at his feet. Luke asked Cade if that was what he wanted, because it would happen if he continued on his current path. Cade said he didn't want that, and Luke's spirit left.===Unlikely family reunion[33]Edit===

"Only difference between us then, Pateesa... Is skill."
―Cade to Sint Yoru as he kills him[src]

[34]Cade Skywalker with his mother, Nyna Calixte, and his half-sister, Gunn Yage.Added by RedemptionCade awoke to find Nakia and Sint trying to feed on him and Gunn. Cade slagged Nakia, causing Sint to cry out to his wife. This woke Gunn, who immediately helped Cade fight the assassins. Around this time, Jariah and Morrigan Corde arrived at the shelter and killed the Blood Carver. Sint pulled a lightsaber on Cade, but Cade had skill on his side, and cut Sint down. Nakia tried to seduce Cade into submission, but Gunn stunned her. They then carried the Anzati outside to find Syn and Corde. They took the assassins' ship and headed for the Black Sun boss who hired them while Gunn set out after Moff Gromia to arrest her for her part in the attempted assassination.

Cade talked with Corde during the trip. Corde admitted that she had left him and Kol because she felt her loyalties lay with the Empire above all else, though she claimed that if she had known the Sith would attack Ossus, she would not have kept silent. She said after Ossus, she thought he had died with his father, and she felt that nothing else mattered in her life. Cade left the room before she said that she always loved him and his father.

Cade arrived at the Black Sun base and threatened the Black Sun boss into a deal. But Corde killed the boss, knowing he would never keep his word. Cade lashed out at her with Force lightning, but Syn reminded him about how he got on Kiffex, and Cade calmed down, remembering that he didn't want to turn out like that. He told Corde to find her own ride off the station, and left the station in the assassin shuttle. He and Syn returned to Tatooine to find Blue had repaired their ship and they left Tatooine.

Gunn, meanwhile, heard from Gromia that Corde and Calixte were the same person and that she was Cade's half-sister, something she refused to believe.

Choosing a path[35]EditEdit

"Trust the bonds you once felt within the Force when you were my apprentice. The bonds you shared with your father, who walked firmly in the Light. They are still strong in you! The Force has brought me here to this place, light years from where I was, to be with you at this moment... How can you not trust in the power of the Light side above the Dark? How can you not trust in the power of the Force?"
―Wolf to Cade Skywalker on Wayland.[src]

After their narrow escape from Tatooine, Cade and his crew weren't looking for another endeavor. Trying to stay out of the spotlight, they traveled to Zeltros where they could relax for awhile in Jool's new cantina. However, their rest was short-lived, when Rav arrived and presented to them with an very tempting offer. With a reward of a million credits, the job was deemed too good for them to refuse.[27] The job involved Cade and company traveling to Wayland, one of the sites of Kol Skywalker and the Yuuzhan Vong's use of the Ossus Project, a project that went horribly wrong. The trio arrived to find something different, and Cade would be forced to revisit his father's 'sins'[28]. Cade soon found himself separated from Jariah and Deliah who had been captured as they were about to discover the source of the Vongspawn[29]. [36]Cade and Blue kiss after saving her.Added by Cato NeimoidiaCade made his way to a secret lab on Wayland, where he was captured by Darth Maladi and the Yuuzhan Vong who helped her sabotage the Ossus Project. Maladi was developing a new weapon to increase her power in the Sith, and needed Cade to use his healing powers to see that they were invincible. Therefore, Maladi had infected Deliah Blue with her weapon and told Cade to use his dark side healing powers to try to heal her. Cade tried, and was unable, while continually dancing on the edge of the dark side. As Maladi continued to taunt him, Cade eventually snapped and used his powers to force the Sith mistress to see her worst fears. Terrified, Maladi fled and activated her lab's self-destruct sequence.

Cade continued to try to use his healing powers on Blue after Syn and his friends showed up, Wolf Sazen among them. While Cade insisted that the dark side was stronger, Sazen told him to tap into the light side to save Blue. Cade told everyone else to leave before the base blew up while he continued to heal Blue. Cade tapped into the light side and his love for Blue, which caused Maladi's weapon to die, freeing her. Cade carried Blue out of the destroyed lab, and told Sazen that he had been right.

Despite this, Cade decided not to return to the Jedi. Saying that the Force had made him what he was, he decided to be neither Jedi nor Sith, but the latter's worst enemy.

Hunting Vul Isen[37]EditEdit

[38]Cade Skywalker, scourge of the One SithAdded by JMAS:"Where is he? Where's Vul Isen? The Butcher of Dac! Where is he?!"

―Cade to a group of Sith on Daluuj.[src]

After learning of the poisoning of Dac by the Sith scientist Vul Isen, Cade, alongside Wolf Sazen, Deliah and Jariah, made his way to Daluuj to hunt down the so-called "Butcher of Dac" and deal a crippling blow to the Sith. Cade and his companions confronted a number of stormtroopers as well as several Sith. After defeating them, Cade interrogated the surviving Sith as to Isen's whereabouts. The Sith said Isen had left a long time ago with all his poisons. Cade left the wounded Sith in the lab and had Jariah set the lab to blow. The party then left Daluuj.

After the mission, Luke's Force ghost appeared to Cade once again, this time saying that he needed to form his plans better if he was to succeed against the Sith. Around this time, Cade got a message from Jool's summoning him to Nal Hutta: the Sith, under Isen, had bombarded and poisoned the sacred Hutt world of Da Soocha in an attempt to punish the Hutts for providing a refuge for Mon Calamari. After hearing this, Cade and his crew set a course for Nal Hutta.

By coincidence, Cade and company ran into Screeger again, who had got himself hired as the gatekeeper for Jool's associate, Vedo Anjiliac Atirue. Screeger then pulled a trap against Cade, separating him from his friends by a literal wall. Cade was forced to defeat all the combat droids set against him, before he came face-to-face with Vedo and Jool, who had set up the entire fight to test his skills. Vedo then cut straight to the point: Isen had murdered his nephew Azzim and wanted the Sith scientist to pay. Therefore, to make it seemed like the Hutt clan was cowed by the destruction of Napdu and Da Soocha, he had leaked to the Sith that Gar Stazi was hiding on Utapau, which would entice Isen to go there to attempt to use his poisons, putting him in the perfect position to be eliminated. However, Stazi could not be warned, for then Isen would flee.

The crew of the Mynock then arrived on Utapau, under the pretense of selling Rawk chopped specials to the Alliance Remnant. Cade and Sazen departed the others' company to meet up with Vedo's agent, Pobos. But before the Bothan could tell him anything, he was shot by assassins. Cade and Sazen were able to defeat the assassins, before the former used the Force to keep Pobos alive long enough for him to disclose Isen's location. Sazen then quickly realized that Cade was willing to go along with the Hutts' plan. Though Cade said that he didn't care if Stazi lived or died, Sazen reprimanded him for such thinking, stating that Stazi and his forces had been fighting the Sith for seven years. He asked his former apprentice if he thought he could defeat the Sith all by himself. He demanded that Cade warned Stazi or he would. Cade complied, contacting Syn to guard Stazi, but to trust no one. [39]Cade kills Vul IsenAdded by Cato NeimoidiaIsen's assassin was killed by Syn and Blue managed to protect Stazi. Meanwhile, Cade and Sazen found Darth Azard and Isen. While Sazen dueled Azard, Cade went after Isen. Cade cornered Isen on a ledge, but then felt a horrible disturbance in the Force: Darth Krayt had returned from the dead. Isen used the opportunity to leap into the pit with a virus that would destroy all of Utapau. Cade leapt after him, sliced him in half in mid-air, and caught the virus's container before it could hit the water and shatter, saving the planet. But when Cade fell in the water, the Force gave him a vision of the future: he was fighting a reborn Darth Krayt, and there was nothing after it. Climbing out of the water, Cade realized that the Force had shaped him over his entire life for one destiny: to stop Darth Krayt.===The New Journey[40]Edit===

"I get it now, everything that's happened all my life... You shaped me to do this. Doesn't matter if I'm a Jedi or not.. Or if I'm a Skywalker or not. Everyone has a destiny. This one is mine. I can feel it in my gut. So, me and Krayt... One final round. Never expected to get old. Never figured to die in bed. I got a job to do -- Even if it's my last. "
―Cade after experiencing a vision of himself and Krayt.[src]

Cade informed Sazen about his vision, and Sazen told the Jedi Council that Krayt was alive. Later, Cade began having visions of himself killing Sazen and his uncle under Krayt's orders. Cade told Sazen about this, and Sazen said that despite rejecting the Sith, Cade was still drawn to the dark side. He also told him that the Jedi Council was only listening to him partly because Sazen was vouching for him, and partly because any possibility that Krayt is alive should be taken seriously. However, Cade believed that the Jedi weren't going to do anything and left with Jariah and Deliah. Cade, Jariah and Deliah talked about Cade's plans to stop Krayt. Although they did not understand the Force, Jariah and Deliah promised to help Cade in his plans.[30]


"Krayt. I'm coming for you. I'm going to kill you, Krayt. Whatever you do to the Galaxy doesn't matter. You're going to die. Once and for all. Guaranteed. "
―Cade in a message to Darth Krayt.[src]

Cade Skywalker and his companions then traveled to Falleen and attacked the Imperial cruiser Krayt had sent to bombard the planet. They were joined by Rogue Squadron, sent by Admiral Stazi of the Galactic Alliance Remnant in defense of the planet. After boarding the cruiser, Cade received a transmission from his mother telling him that they needed to meet on The Wheel in three days. After tossing explosives into the cruiser's reactor core, Cade sent a transmission to Krayt, promising to kill the Dark Lord once more and for good. With Falleen secured, Cade and his allies followed Rogue Squadron back to Stazi's fleet.[31]

Unknown to Cade, his journey to kill Krayt was actually playing right into the Sith's hands. Krayt wanted Cade to find him so he could undergo what he had endured at Wyyrlok's hands: 'death' and rebirth. Krayt believed that this would force Cade to serve him. Also unknown to Cade, his mother had been discovered as Fel's spy on the Moff Council. Morlish Veed attacked her and she fell into the lower levels of Coruscant, seemingly to her death.[31]

Personality and traits[42]EditEdit

[43]Cade Skywalker.Added by Redemption:"There are far bigger things at stake."
"Ah, c'mon! Honor? Duty? Tried those. They killed just about everyone I cared about."
"They may kill me. But some things are more important than the life of any one person--including mine."

Marasiah Fel and Cade Skywalker[src]

Cade was known for his independent nature and his utter adverseness to having others sacrifice themselves for him. Like his ancestor Anakin Skywalker before him, Cade was reckless, headstrong, and often led by his emotions. He walked a fragile line between the light and dark sides of the Force, frequently unnerving his friends and Jedi companions with displays of his dark side abilities, while also frustrating his former master, Darth Krayt, with his resilience against the lure of the dark side's power. This resilience, however, impressed Celeste Morne, who said she had never met someone who walked so close to the dark side and yet was so resistant to its lure.

Furthermore, Cade exhibited a lack of respect for others (especially toward those in positions of power) to the point where he would openly mock them in public. After becoming a bounty hunter, Cade developed an addiction for death sticks which his mentor Rav used to keep him in his debt.

Cade was also, again like Anakin Skywalker, unwilling to let those he cared about go. His constant use of his healing powers to keep people from dying was proof of this.

Once Cade began to embrace the light side he decided to bring war to the Sith. Later after experiencing a vision of him and Darth Krayt in one final duel he realized that it was his destiny to stop Krayt even if he died.

Powers and abilities[44]EditEdit

Force Powers[45]EditEdit

"You have power, Skywalker. Join me and I will teach you to use that power"
―Darth Krayt to Cade Skywalker[src]

Being a member of the Skywalker family, Cade was naturally immensely strong in the Force.

As a Padawan, Cade showed incredible potential in the ways of the Force, and was able to hold his own against a large number of stormtroopers and Sith during the Massacre at Ossus even as a simple child still in training[3].

His powers did not appear to atrophy in the seven years he spent in Rav's crew, despite rarely drawing on his powers in that time and his use of deathsticks. During a confrontation with Darth Talon on Vendaxa, Cade used the Force to hurl a crashed starship at the Sith, once more tapping into his anger to fuel his abilities. He later admitted that he could sense the Sith nearby, showing that his Jedi senses were as attuned as ever[12]. When he attempted to rescue Hosk from the Temple of the Sith on Coruscant, he was able to sense the Jedi's presence from outside the mammoth structure[8].

He was proficient with telekinesis, capable of using a very powerful force push, on many occasions, like in the Sith temple on Coruscant against Darth Talon, where he threw the Sith Lady back with a powerful kinetic blast, injuring her .[18].

He could also use Force Choke, a dark side power associated with the Sith, which he used against Gunn Yage[32] [46]Cade brings Wolf Sazen back from death.Added by RedemptionWhen Cade went to reclaim the Grinning Liar, Rav ordered all of his henchmen to attack Cade and while greatly outnumbered Cade singlehandedly defeated all of them.[21]

When Darth Maladi set her base on Wayland to self destruct Cade was able to project a protection bubble over himself and Deliah Blue to protect them from the explosion and debris.[33]

Dark Transfer[47]EditEdit

"Healing me like you did was not something you were taught—you did that by instinct alone!"
Wolf Sazen to Cade Skywalker on Vendaxa[src]

[48]Cade using Dark TransferAdded by Bella'MiaPerhaps his most impressive and mysterious power was his apparently instinctive ability to use Dark Transfer, which allowed him to revive Wolf Sazen from death. To do so, Cade tapped into the power of the dark side, and both he and Sazen felt the effect as a Force power with a similar appearance to Force lightning coursed over their bodies. The power he exerted even caused Cade's eyes to glow with Force energy. Within moments, Sazen had been revived, and he was soon able to talk and walk of his own accord.[3] As Cade would later relate to Sazen some seven years later, the price for bringing his Master back from death was high: Cade admitted he "tapped into all the fear and rage" within him[12], and, as he told the Force ghost of Luke Skywalker, he was afraid that the hunger for power he felt that day was "not a good place for a Skywalker to be"[11]. Cade could also use this to purge other ailments from other beings bodies.Cade's use of the dark side was even felt by Darth Krayt, from the New Imperial Palace on Coruscant. Krayt believed that this power would enable him to cheat death, and began a search for what he called "a dark light in the Force"[3]. It should also be noted that Cade discovered the ability that his ancestor Anakin Skywalker had desired for so long—to keep people from dying.[34] Cade's ability to tap into the Force was so powerful that he was able to manifest and control Force Lightning to such a degree that he was able to prevent his ship from being torn apart by a large lightning storm ravaging the entire planet. Cade later learned to use Dark Transfer in coordination with the light side of the Force, which was apparently what was needed to overcome previous obstacles to its healing powers.

"I could heal that hurt. Pour the Force into the place where the red lines intersect. Or -- and here's a new idea -- maybe I could explode that point. Kill you. Interesting idea. Should we try?"
―Cade to Darth Talon[src]

In addition to being able to heal people with his power, it could be used to hurt others that suffered a previous injury in moments, by allowing Cade to focus it into a point where their wound was[4], similar to finding shatterpoints. However, it is unclear whether it was shatterpoints that Cade was finding. Either healing or injuring someone with his Force ability, he can completely manipulate someone's body; it is entirely possible that this power is midi-chlorian manipulation.

Lightsaber skills[49]EditEdit

"The only thing that saves thus far is the blood of Vader that runs through your veins."
―Darth Krayt on Cade's abilities[src]

[50]Cade slaying SithAdded by Cato NeimoidiaCade was very skilled in the art of lightsaber combat. During the Massacre at Ossus, Cade was able to defeat numerous Sith and Stormtroopers to escape. After abandoning the Order, Cade swore never to pick up a lightsaber again.[35].Seven years later, Cade, enraged that Princess Fel had been wounded trying to save him, took up her lightsaber and attacked Darth Nihl, one of Darth Krayt's Hands, and held him off long enough for them to escape.[36]

When Cade went to Coruscant to rescue Hosk Trey'lis he dueled Krayt's other Hand, Darth Talon, and managed to disarm her, only to be subdued by Nihl. After training as a Sith then attempting his escape, Cade defeated both Darth Talon and Nihl. He then dueled Darth Krayt, holding the Dark Lord off long enough for his mother to provide him with a way to escape.[37]

When Cade discovered that the Imperial Knights Antares Draco and Ganner Krieg had followed him to the secret Jedi Temple he briefly dueled Draco before Force Pushing him into Ganner.[38]

Cade would continue to display his skills with a lightsaber on Had Abbadon, where he once again defeated Darth Talon and Krayt's new hand, Darth Stryfe.[39]

When Cade was on Tatooine he fought the Anzat bounty hunter Sint Yoru. During the battle Sint brandished a lightsaber he claimed to obtain from a Jedi he hunted and killed. Cade told them the only difference between them was skill, and killed the Anzati with one strike.[40]

Cade along with Wolf Sazen fought and killed several Sith on the planet Daluuj, including an Unidentified Sith Lord who claimed to have already killed powerful Jedi.[41]

Cade dueled and killed Vul Isen the "Butcher of Dac".[42]

During the Bombing of Falleen Cade easily slayed stormtroopers as well as an attacking Sith.[43]

Other skills[51]EditEdit

In addition to his Force powers, Cade was a capable starfighter pilot, being able to ditch Skull Squadron, some of Darth Krayt's best pilots, when he was attempting to rescue Hosk. He was also proficient in both hand-to-hand combat and ranged combat with his weapon of choice, the Rawk chopped special.[2]


"Ah, shut up and kill something!"
―Cade Skywalker to Jariah Syn during Darth Talon's attack[src]

[53]Cade's blaster.Added by KwennAs a Jedi Padawan, he used a blue lightsaber[3]. During his self-exile, Cade used Marasiah Fel's lightsaber after she saved him from a Sith[13][14]. After he left Deliah Blue and Jariah Syn on Vendaxa, he went to Ossus, where he was armed with a green lightsaber when he battled a vision of Darth Vader.[5] After he met Nei Rin, Rin gave him his father's lightsaber, which he brought with him to Coruscant[9]. After his capture, it was seized by Darth Krayt[17]. It was later recovered by Cade after his father's Force ghost appeared to him. He used the Force to shatter the transparisteel his father's lightsaber was encased in, and used it to fight the Sith.[19][54]Cade Skywalker's lightsaber.Added by JMASIn his pirate years, Cade also had a collection of antique and modified blasters, his favorite being the Rawk chopped special, a custom piece built for him by a chief mechanic of the Selonian Shipyards, and his own uncle, Nat Skywalker, then going by the alias "Bantha" Rawk[2]. Because of a recognition code programmed in it, the blaster only worked for Cade and no one else. His armor chest piece was Mandalorian in origin. He also wore trousers that resemble those worn by Darth Vader.
