The Battle of Ahto: A Memoir
this history of the Imperial occupation of the planet Manaan and the effects it had on the Selkath was written by Fewash Welko. The book chronicled the Selkath plans for rebellion, as well as the sudden appearance of a mysterious stranger who knew as much about the Order of Shasa as the Selkath. After the Battle of Endor, the book was translated from the Selkath language into Basic, for reading and investigation by the rest of the galaxy. It was then that people realized the Selkath had been visited by Darth Vader, not a saving Jedi as many had suspected. The memoirs told of the swift way in which the Selkath infiltrated the Imperial base and eliminated any opposition. Their attack was so fast that the base Commander could only order a retreat in the face of it, leaving the tourists who had traveled to Manaan behind. However, the Selkath didn't stop at killing the Imperials. They found themselves possessed by a bloodlust that consumed them, and they slaughtered the innocent tourists as well. Jedi scholars came to believe that Vader had tricked them into the attacks, in an effort to force the Selkath down a path toward the Dark Side of the Force, where they might have become a powerful weapon for Emperor Palpatine.
