QUINLAN VOS... LIGHT OR DARK?
Doug Wangler, Quinlan Vos model, pays a visit to Book World in Danville, IL to pick up the latest issue of Star Wars Republic. He's shown holding issue's 76, 77, 82 and 83. Their appearance was to commemorate the last issue of the Star Wars: Republic comic. The final installment in a three-part series, “A Jedi’s fate” delivers quite a punch and well as answers all the questions you might have thought of during the course of issues 81 and 82, such as the fate of Master Vos, his love interest Khaleen, and their child. More importantly, we learn ultimately, what path our favorite EU Jedi master will follow; the Light or the Dark. Seriously wounded, stranded in the forests of Kashyyyk, with only the feelings of the deaths of the Jedi, far and away, Quinlan is forced to stay alive, all the while being hunted by the very clones he commanded.

The dilemma was a complex one: Draw from the dark energies of the Dark Side to heal himself and keep him alive, as well as using his anger to hunt those who hunt him and avenge his fallen Jedi brethren, or remain true to the Light Side so that he may once again find his new family in Khaleen and his yet unborn child. Ultimately, our hero chooses just that, to sacrifice himself to the Living Force and destroy his former Clone Commander, Commander Faie so as to end his bloodshed, hoping to protect the Wookiees who would surely be destroyed by this new Empire. In the end, aided by his friend and foe, Vilmar Grahrk, Quinlan was taken to heal inside of a Bacta tank. Eventually, Quinlan returned to his family, Khaleen and their son Korto Vos, who were searching for any remaining clues as to the fate of Vos on Kashyyyk.

Our story ends here, with a handful of Jedi left alive in the galaxy, to once again take up their lightsabers to defend a galaxy that would need their aid, thus ending the Star Wars: Republic saga. Our Covert Op Chip Childress TK 9965 was able to snap a few recon photos of the event. While the Expanded Universe has been set ablaze with Quin-mania, it is really exciting to see the adventures of Master Vos since he was left out of the filming of Revenge of the Sith.
