Meanwhile on Coruscant, Darth Vader completes his torture of Jedi Dama Montalvo by killing him, his reason being that Dama refused to give up the location of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Afterwards, a trooper informs Lord Vader that Imperial spies have information of a Jedi gathering on Kessel.
The person who has called this gathering is Shadday Potkin. Bultar and Tsui arrive, bringing the total amount of Jedi in attendance to eight. The Jedi began to debate what should be done about the Empire and the purge of their order, and Koffi Arana proposes going to the dark side to stop Vader. As the Jedi ponder this, a dark presence is sensed arriving. It is none other than Lord Vader. Secretly, Shadday has "invited", by spreading rumors Obi-Wan would be here, in hopes of the Jedi group being able to trap and overwhelm him. To help her do this, she also employs the use of a cortosis-weaved blade.
Vader quickly dispatches one of the Jedi, Sia-Lan Wezz, and while fighting the other Jedi, promptly disposes of another, Ma'kis'shaalas. Shadday is able to corner Vader and dispose of his lightsaber blade with the cortosis weapon, but then Vader uses the Force to grab Shadday and steal her weapon, then snaps her neck. Using the cortosis blade, Vader disables the lightsabers of Roblio Darté and Arana. The Jedi manage to sever Vader's hand and bring him to "surrender". Arana does not believe that Vader is sincere, and when Bultar protests and points out the Jedi do not take the lives of unarmed opponents, Arana takes Bultar's saber, kills her, and heads after Vader. He underestimates him however, and Vader sends the cortosis blade from his severed hand through Arana with a wave of the hand, and grabs a spare lightsaber dropped by one of the dead Jedi. The three remaining Jedi rally together, and use the Force to send debris hurling at Vader. Almost incapacitated, Tsui Choi prepares to finish Vader off, but then a contingent of Stormtroopers show up, and begin firing. Jastus Farr is fired upon and falls to his death, while Choi distracts the troopers for a chance for Darté to escape, but it is useless, and he succumbs to the barrage of blaster fire. Finally, Vader kills Choi. Vader returns to Coruscant, where his purge of the Jedi conclave has now turned into a legendary rumor that states Vader tracked down a nest of fifty Jedi and destroyed them all.
