this young man was Darca Nyl's son. Unfortunately for both men, Darca's wife Teril died in childbirth. Rather than causing problems, this event brought them closer together, and their relationship grew deep. Then, one day just after the Battle of Naboo, the starship of a Jedi Knight crashlanded on Darca's land. Darca went to investigate, and discovered the dying Jedi, who told Darca that he had been transferring a prisoner to Coruscant. The prisoner, a Dark Jedi named Lycan, had escaped after the crash. As Darca listened to the story, he heard gunfire from his home, and rushed to return to Neas' side. Unfortunately, the brave youth had tried to stand up to Lycan, shooting the Dark Jedi in the head before being killed for his actions. As Neas died in his arms, Darca vowed to bring Lycan to justice.
