Solo, Jacen

Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo's first son, Jacen was born five minutes after his sister, Jaina. The twins were born on Coruscant some five years after the Battle of Endor, in the midst of Grand Admiral Thrawn's attempt to take control of the galaxy. He was very strong with the Force, and had the special ability to communicate with animals. When he and his sister turned 14, they were allowed to attend Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4. While there, Jacen developed an extensive collection of the jungle moon's exotic fauna, many of which escaped the cages built for them by Jaina. When he finally constructed his own lightsaber, Jacen chose focusing stones which produced a glowing, emerald green blade. He later trained directly with Luke himself, as Luke began moving the new Jedi Knights back to the pre-Empire style of teaching. Luke also trained Jacen's brother, Anakin, although both brothers had different ideas on what the future of the Jedi should be. Jacen agreed with Luke, that the formation of a new Jedi Council would help bring the vigilantes under control. Jacen also believed more in the spiritual aspects of the Force, while Anakin held to the physical uses of the Force.They fought often, verbally and with lightsabers, both claiming their intense sessions were simply training. He traveled with his younger brother, Anakin, to Centerpoint Station, just before the Battle of Fondor, but urged Anakin not to use the Force to fire it. When Thrackan Sal-Solo fired it instead, and nearly destroyed the combined Republic and Hapan fleets, Jacen felt himself lost in his struggle to understand the Force. After having an intense vision of the galaxy, teetering on a single balance point that he alone controlled, Jacen tried to stop using the Force altogether. His family tried to bring him out of this mental state, but Jacen doggedly refused. However, when his mother was threated by the Yuuzhan Vong on Duro, Jacen realized that he had reached the balance point in his vision. Drawing on the Force, he managed to escape with his mother and get her to safety. During the escape, Jacen badly injured the Yuuzhan Vong Warmaster, Tsavong Lah, earning him a position of hatred among the alien invaders. When the Yuuzhan Vong learned that Jacen and Jaina were twins - an event which was rare in Yuuzhan Vong births, and indicated an omen from the gods - both siblings were targeted for capture and eventual sacrifice. Shortly afterward, Jacen and his siblings joined the Jedi strike team which was sent ot Myrkr to locate and destroy the voxyn queen. When Anakin was killed aboard the Baanu Rass, Jacen found that his sister blamed him for Anakin's death, despite the fact that Anakin gave specific orders to reach the queen. Eventually, the Jedi were able to defeat the voxyn queen, but Jacen was captured when Vergere betrayed him to the Yuuzhan Vong. Despite her changing allegiance, Vergere provided Jacen with several of her healing "tears," to help prepare him for the torture he was about to receive after his capture. The rest of the strike team fled, vowing to rescue Jacen at the soonest possible moment. However, once in the Hapes Cluster aboard the Trickster, Jaina and the others received a wave of anguish through the Force that seemed to indicate Jacen's death. Jacen, however, had been taken aboard a Yuuzhan Vong seedship and secured in a modified Embrace of Pain by Vergere, as part of something known as the Solo Project. Vergere and Nom Anor hoped to turn him to the Yuuzhan Vong's True Way, and he was held in the Embrace of Pain for many months. Vergere, in an effort to eliminate his reliance on the Force, took away his link to the Force and forced him to recognize other ways of tapping into its energy. This was the "death" Jaina and other Jedi felt. Jacen began to understand the pain could eventually be overcome and used to his advantage, and that the Force was not simply black and white. Vergere's lessons taught him that the Yuuzhan Vong existed in another facet of the Force's energy, and that there were more grey areas than Jacen had ever believed possible. Upon his release from the Embrace of Pain, Jacen discovered he was aboard a seedship, where he was bound as a slave to an immature dhuryam. Jacen developed a relationship with the future World Brain, and eventually discovered that he could tap resources within the Force that he never knew existed. When the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat occurred, Jacen chose his time to strike at his captors. Never truly turned to the True Way, Jacen tried to destroy the World Brains before one could be inserted into Coruscant's new environment. Vergere interferred, playing on his emotions to stop Jacen from killing the dhuryam which had become his "friend". Jacen awoke to find himself on Coruscant, now renamed Yuuzhan'tar in honor of the original Yuuzhan Vong homeworld, along with Vergere. They were hunted by the warriors assigned to Master Shaper Ch'Gang Hool, and forced to accept the Ture Way. He then put into motion his next plant, tocapture Ganner Rhysode. Ganner had been searching for Jacen, who lured him into the chamber of a camp ship and captured him. Once on Coruscant, Jacen subtly explained that he was worked with the Yuuzhan Vong in order to gain their confidence. Them he planned to use the World Brain to act as his agent on Coruscant. Ganner gave his life to keep Jacen alive long enough to gain access to the World Brain, which had been the dhuyram he befriended. Jacen asked the World Brain to help him monitor the situation on Coruscant, then he fled the planet with Vergere. Jacen later returned to Master Skywalker, who accepted his return and allowed him to return to work with the Jedi Knights. He tried to listen to Vergere's words and advice on the nature of his destiny within the Force, but when his sister Jaina was in danger during the Battle of Ebaq, Jacen blindly raced to her rescue. He was trapped by Yuuzhan Vong in the mines of Ebaq 9, and only Vergere's sacrifice allowed him to survive. He eventually reached Jaina, where they were attacked by Tsavong Lah. Jaina managed to defeat the Warmaster in combat, and the twins were rescued by New Republic forces. Jacen then commited himself to reconciling the Yuuzhan Vong with his definition of the Force, and vowed to honor Vergere's memory by working to fulfill his destiny. As part of this personal mission, Jacen agreed to accompany his Uncle Luke and Aunt Mara on a mission into the Unknown Regions, in a search for the planet Zonama Sekot. He had learned of the planet from Vergere, and hoped that his connection to her would help their cause. Upon finding the planet in the Klasse Ephemora System, Sekot initially refused to help them. In a series of devious tests, the living part of the planet separated Jacen from Luke and tried to learn their true motives for coming to Zonama Sekot. Eventually, both Luke and Jacen convinced the planet they were seeking a peaceful end to the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong. Sekot then agreed to accompany them back to the galaxy, in an effort to find a way to end the war. Upon reverting to realspace near Coruscant, Jacen found himself once again in the company of his family. Han, Leia, and Jaina had been dispatched to meet them, and the family was briefly reunited before returning to the war. Jacen and his sister accompanied their uncle Luke to the surface of Coruscant, in an effort to gain access to the Citadel and bring Supreme Overlord Shimrra to justice. Jacen was able to reach the mind of the World Brain which was controlling the planet, and was able to calm it down and put a stop to the destruction it was causing on the surface. Upon entering Shimrra's throneroom, they were beset by a group of fifteen Slayers, and only Jacen's link to the World Brain allowed them any measure of success. When Jaina set out to capture Onimi, Jacen found himself facing the remaining Slayers, who had abandoned Luke so that Shimrra himself could destroy the Jedi Master. After Shimrra's defeat, Jacen left Luke in Mara's capable hands and set out to locate his sister, only to be assailed by Onimi. Jacen suddenly realized that Onimi was perhaps the most powerful of all Yuuzhan Vong, since he had managed to tap into the Force in a way that no other individual could. His own Shaping had somehow reconnected him to the Force, and gave him powerful abilities as a Shaper and as a fighter. Jacen was forced to fend off all manner of projectiles, then had to find a way to neutralize the poisons that Onimi created to kill him. Drawing on the power of the Force, Jacen understood that only a complete surrender to its energy would save. In this state, Jacen was able to fight off whatever Onimi threw at him, realizing that he had finally found the truth about the Force and the way in which a Jedi should connect to it. He became simply a living conduit for the power of the Force, embracing neither good nor evil but simply existing within it. In this manner, Jacen was able to eradicate the evil and greed within Onimi, killing the Shamed One in the process. With the Yuuzhan Vong surrender at Coruscant, the war was ended and the Galactic Alliance set out to restore as much of it as possible. Jacen decided to set out in search of other Force users - such as the Jensaarai, the Sunesi, and the Fallanassi - to deepen his already vast knowledge of the Unifying Force. This exploration allowed him to acknowledge the call of UnuThul but resist becoming a Joiner, when the Colony began its expansion in the Unknown Regions. He remained neutral in the growing conflict, hoping that the Force would guide him to a resolution. However, he experienced a terrible vision of the galaxy in flames, which left him without any clear path. Added to his confusion was the revelation that an evening spent with Tenel Ka at the start of the Qoribu Crisis had produced a daughter, which Jacen discovered about a year later. While trying to piece all of this together, Jacen realized that the Force was calling on him to save his daughter - and the rest of the galaxy - from destruction at the hands of the Killiks. He then turned his efforts to eradicating the Dark Nest before it could launch the war he had seen in his vision. He agreed to accompany Jaina on a mission to disable Supply Depot Thrago, in an effort to provoke the Chiss into attacking the Colony, knowing that the Chiss had built up enough military power to defeat the Killiks. All the Chiss needed was an excuse to launch their attack. Jaina and Jacen were able to gather several Jedi together to launch the mission, but Jaina recoiled when she discovered that Jacen was also planning to exterminate the Colony to avoid seeing his vision come true.
