Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Threats of the Galaxy
The Reborn is the achievement of the dream of artificially imbuing the ability to perceive and manipulate The Force into beings that didn't have it before. Working as Dark Jedi warriors, the Reborn serve as the foot soldiers of the faction known as the Empire Reborn, dedicated to returning the ideals of Emperor Palpatine back to the galaxy at large.
The Reborn originated with Desann, one of Luke Skywalker's former students at the Jedi Praxeum who fell to The Dark Side, and Hethrir, a former apprentice to Darth Vader and servant of the Emperor. By deceiving Kyle Karan into giving away the location of the Valley of the Jedi and the Force Nexus located there, Hethrir increased his powers fourfold by absorbing energy from ancient Jedi and Sith spirits. After gaining that power, the two Dark Jedi were able to imbue others with the power of The Force and use them as warriors to threaten The New Republic and Skywalker's New Jedi Order.
Dispatched by Desann and the Empire Reborn, The Reborn worked in conjunction with units of the Imperial Army to perform various missions across the galaxy. Desann used these missions not only to further the cause of the Empire Reborn but also to help train The Reborn for Desann's ultimate goal: the death of Skywalker and the destruction of his Jedi. They were stopped by Kyle Katarn and Rogue Squadron.
A short time later, those Reborn who survived the assault assembled under the leadership of Tavion Axmis, Desann's apprentice. With the assistance of the Imperial Remnant, Tavion created a Sith cult called the Disciples of Ragnos and named it the New Reborn. Striving to continue Desann's work, the cultists eventually made their way to Korriban, where they were defeated within the ancient Sith tombs in the Valley of the Dark Lords by Jaden Korr and a band of Jedi from Skywalker's academy.
The Reborn are easily recognized by their orange cloaks and simple, red-bladed Lightsabers. Even though they have been granted the ability to use The Force, their aptitude to wield it is not very strong, but their ability with the Lightsaber compensates for this shortcoming.
