Jedi Ru-Ru and Arkoff assist and the group ultimately defeat a pair of the dangerous Drengir.
Following the Drengir attack, the Jedi come to believe that the Nihil will soon attack the settlement. As the Jedi bolster the defenses, Tionn is charged with overseeing training of the young Initiates at the Temple.
