Blades of Kun

29 ABY (final time)

The Blades of Kun were one of two battleteams in House Exar Kun of Clan Plagueis. The Blades originated as a gaming-based team but their function would expand over time as it was repeatedly closed and reopened in response to membership levels. Like its rivals in Battleteam Exar's Shadow, the Blades played pivotal roles in The Crimson War, protecting clan and house. Ultimately, the team was dissolved forever when Clan Plagueis evolved into a house and created a new lore with new teams.
The Blades of Kun originated as a secret group of Imperial assassins serving under the Emperor. The group was highly trained and picked for their potential affluence in the Force. After the collapse of the Empire, the Blades fled to Byss. Knowing their loyalty to the deceased Darth Sidious, the Imperial Remnant sought to hunt them down, forcing the Blades to remain mobile as their numbers dwindled to only seven.
They would eventually be approached by a mysterious figure representing the interests of a recruitment party. The deal led them to the Antei System where the seven Blades were initiated into the Dark Jedi Brotherhood and shipped to the Shadow Academy. Upon graduation the tight knit group was transferred to Clan Exar Kun where they served loyally as trained warriors.
After the Dictum of Two Skies, the Blades of Kun became one of two battle teams within the newly formed House Exar Kun. They served with honor in the Seventh Great Jedi War but were weakened by the Assault on Diadem Fortress back home. Over the years, the Blades of Kun would be closed and reopened as membership levels dictated but no guiding figures emerged. The Blades developed an intense rivalry with Exar's Shadow particularly while fighting in The Crimson War and the chase of Alonzo Bodelle.
The Blades were diminished after both the Invasion of the as well as the Crimson Tide and would be disbanded until 27 ABY when Tiberious di Cloud was called upon to reinvent the Blades in the wake of Exar's Shadow's downfall. Tiberious and the new Blades set up headquarters on Shintera and forged a new and stronger team than before. Again, the Blades served with honor, but when House Exar's Kun was closed the new House Plagueis Summit thought it best to create a new lore through new teams. The Blades of Kun were closed for the final time, their history and artifacts stored within the Plagueis Vault.
