Traitor, also known as Invitation, is a status effect in Final Fantasy Tactics. A Traitor leaves their party and joins the opposing party. The easiest way to achieve this is with the Orator's Entice or Tame. Other ways involve getting dragons and hydras into the party using the Dragonkin's Dragon Charm.

When inflicted, the target's portrait will either display Guest if the target joins the player's party, and Enemy is they defect to the enemy's side. Guest targets can be recruited into the party permanently.

Publisher's summary

From the depths of catastrophe, a glimmer of hope.

After the capture of Coruscant, the mighty heart of the New Republic, a stunned galaxy fears that nothing can stop the Yuuzhan Vong. Still, that crushing defeat produces one small miracle: Jacen Solo is alive. Yet he can scarcely imagine himself in stranger circumstances.

The young Jedi Knight is in the care of Vergere, a fascinating creature of mystery and power, her intentions hard to fathom, her cruelties rarely concealed. But this master of inscrutable arts has much to teach the young Jedi… for she holds the key to a new way to experience the Force, to take it to another level—dangerous, dazzling, perhaps deadly.

In the wrong hands, the tremendous energies of the Force can be devastating. And there are others watching Jacen's process closely, waiting patiently for the moment when he will be ready for their own dire purposes. Now, all is in shadows. Yet whatever happens, whether Jacen's newfound mastery unleashes light or darkness, he will never be the same Jedi again…

Plot summary

The story opens with Jacen Solo being tortured aboard a Yuuzhan Vong ship. He receives frequent visits from Vergere, who betrayed him to the Yuuzhan Vong after he killed the voxyn queen. Vergere begins showing Jacen that there is no dark side in the Force and that the "dark side" is rather the full power of the Force. During this time, Vergere helps the Vong shape Jacen into one of their own. This process is observed by Executor Nom Anor.

Eventually, Jacen is sent to a Yuuzhan Vong seedship, the seedship being for the purpose of forming a new planet for the Vong to have as a home. Jacen is given the task of tending to the non-Yuuzhan Vong workers developing the ship into a planet, and he begins to have a belief that the cruel non-Vong workers need to die after the death of a Devaronian who was assisting Jacen in an assignment. At the beginning of his stay on the seedship, Jacen is implanted with a slave seed in his chest by Vergere to connect him with one of the dhuryam of the seedship. During the course of this bond, the dhuryam realizes Jacen cannot be broken and forced into doing work, so the dhuryam resorts to a mutual partnership with Jacen.

Soon more Yuuzhan Vong forces arrive at the seedship in order to select one of the dhuryam for a World Brain. The dhuryam would then be able to have complete independence in controlling a Yuuzhan Vong-formed planet, in a ceremonial ritual. But Jacen refuses to join the ceremony. The dhuryam then allows him to take control of the immature amphistaffs and wear them as armor as he goes through the seedship and causing a massive amount of damage to the Yuuzhan Vong, and further, he makes all the other slaves attack the Vong with immature weapons, which turns out to be as much a danger to them as it is to the Yuuzhan Vong. Jacen reaches the dhuryam and kills all of them save one, for when he is about to kill the last one, which happens to be the one he was partnered with, Jacen believes he sees Anakin telling him not kill the dhuryam because of their partnership (all appearances of Anakin Solo here are ambiguous as to whether or not they are real or illusion). Vergere convinces Jacen not to kill the last dhuryam, and he falls unconscious.

When Jacen wakes up, he finds he is on the Yuuzhan Vong homeworld of Yuuzhan'tar, and thanks to Vergere, who aids him on his trek to the city capital, he realizes it was once Coruscant, now captured by the Yuuzhan Vong. Jacen learns that he can sense the Yuuzhan Vong in the Force, a result of the slave seed Vergere had implanted in him on the seedship to make him obey the Yuuzhan Vong. He used this "Vongsense" to escape Yuuzhan Vong forces on Coruscant. After a confrontation with the Yuuzhan Vong, Jacen and Vergere travel underground on Yuuzhan'tar to get underneath what was once the old Jedi Temple that was destroyed after the fall of the Old Republic and the rise of the Empire. Vergere questions Jacen further as to who he is, while blinding him in the dark of the underground. Jacen states proudly that he is a Jedi, and Vergere tells him that it was all a game and that Jacen has lost. She reveals he is surrounded by Yuuzhan Vong with Nom Anor. Jacen slips into unconsciousness and unleashes the dark side of the Force upon Vergere and the Yuuzhan Vong. When confronted by Vergere about it, she argues that there is no difference between the light and the dark sides of the Force: they are both the same.

Jacen leaves Vergere to discover who he is and chases after what he believes to be the spirit of his brother Anakin Solo. However this is a hallucination and Jacen unwittingly enters a cave beast. Inside the belly of the gargantuan animal, he hears a voice, crying for help. He tries to shut it out, believing it to be another hallucination. Then, to his horror, he realizes that it has a presence in the Force. He tries to rescue a girl crying for help, but to no avail. But when he unleashes the hate inside himself he uses the Dark side to rescue the child. This confuses him and draws his mind back to Vergere's teachings; that the Dark side was simply the Force's unleashed potential. He discovers more survivors, refugees of the conquest of Coruscant. He assumes that they too, were drawn in by illusions and false hopes. Through his confusion though he also finds anger and rage. The refugees have a rule: whoever arrives last in the beast would be sent to feed its ravenous hunger. The girl arrived last, and she was undergoing an execution. The survivors and, most enraging to Jacen, the girl accuse him of being the last and then try to send him on his way to the stomach. Enraged, he draws on the anger he feels and uses the Force to make the animal believe that Humans are poisonous, triggering it to forcibly eject all of them. Bereft of their shelter, the survivors would most likely die from Coruscant's many dangers. Lost and confused, he leaves them and goes on.

Jacen then arrives at the Solo's now ruined apartment and is saddened by how much things have changed, his home and his life now a perversion of its former self. Shortly after his arrival he is visited by what he thought to be (and may have been) Anakin's spirit. This also challenges his thoughts on the Force. The apparition of Anakin engages in the playful banter they had once shared, and Jacen tells him of the things he has done, and also his confusion. Jacen also asks Anakin whether he is real or an illusion. Anakin counters, asking Jacen if there is a difference, saying that life, like the Force, is all one and that there is no difference, akin to Vergere's earlier teachings. Jacen then thinks that Anakin really is an illusion and tries to shut him out, falling into a deep depression. Vergere arrives and wakes him, once again challenging Jacen's beliefs. They are soon joined by Nom Anor and his entourage of warriors, who confront Jacen, saying that they believe him to be an avatar of Yun-Yammka, offering him Anakin's lightsaber if he would convert to the Yuuzhan Vong religion. Jacen agrees, although Nom Anor is unaware at this time that he is lying.

The rest of the story reveals that Ganner Rhysode has been searching for Jacen due to rumors of him being alive. On a New Republic camp ship that keeps refugees from the Yuuzhan Vong war, Ganner finally confronts Jacen and the Yuuzhan Vong forces and is captured. After Ganner's capture, he is sent to Yuuzhan'tar, and Jacen reveals he has not really converted to the Yuuzhan Vong ways and that he is simply acting. The Yuuzhan Vong do not know whether or not they can trust Jacen to be an avatar, and Nom Anor now knows that Jacen is acting. However, they still bring Jacen and Ganner to the Well of the World Brain where the Galactic Senate once met. Jacen and Ganner lock themselves in, their plan being that Jacen would destroy the World Brain that used to be the dhuryam he was partnered with at the seedship (after Jacen killed all the rest of the dhuryams, his partner was selected to be the World Brain on Yuuzhan'tar) while Ganner would then escape. However, Ganner tells Jacen he will sacrifice himself so that Jacen will be able to kill the World Brain in time. Ganner confronts all the Yuuzhan Vong warriors who come his way and kills nearly all of them, but he dies himself from the wounds inflicted upon him. Meanwhile, Jacen does not kill the World Brain, but convinces it not to make things perfect for the Yuuzhan Vong. Vergere, in the meantime, manipulates Nom Anor into revealing the location of his coralskipper that would let him escape in case trouble came to Yuuzhan'tar. Vergere betrays Nom Anor and lets biological lifeforms trap him while she and Jacen escape to become a third party of themselves in the Yuuzhan Vong War.

Behind the scenes

Jacen Solo's torture and Ganner Rhysode's Battle of the World-Well were included in Star Wars Insider's 20 Most Memorable Moments of the Expanded Universe.

Due to the death of Rhysode, the graphic torture scenes, and the introduction of Vergere's views of the Force, Traitor is one of the most controversial EU books among fans.

Traitor was the first novel not to feature any character from any of the Star Wars films.

It has been suggested by some fans that the book alludes to Dante's Inferno in many respects, such as Vergere's name's similarity to that of Virgil, and how she described herself as Jacen Solo's guide through the land of the dead. In addition, when Jacen allows himself to be taken under the slime to the mouth of the World Brain it is very similar to the Devil in the ninth circle of hell who chews eternally on three traitors. While Vergere and Nom Anor—both traitors in their own rights—are not present within the mouth, they are still very nearby, just beneath the slime pool. Matthew Stover has confirmed that parallels exist between Traitor and Dante's Inferno.

During the novel, when Jacen unleashes his dark side power against the Yuuzhan Vong following his attack on Vergere beneath where the old Jedi Temple was, he finds that his lightning cannot touch the Yuuzhan Vong because since his dark side lightning bolts come from the Force, they do not affect the Vong. This has been contradicted by Star by Star when Jaina resorted to using the dark side and lashed out with lightning bolts against a Vong who threatened to cut up Anakin Solo's body to pieces. It is unknown why, but a most likely reason to this continuity error is that in reality, Vergere was using her own Force energies to direct Jacen's power away from harming the Vong.

Ironically, this isn't about Starscream.

Could Mirage have betrayed the Autobots?

Japanese title: "Ligier's Betrayal"

Detailed synopsis

Megatron got The Touch

At the Experimental Energy Research Laboratories, two scientists are working on the new electro-cells that will hopefully solve Earth's energy problems. Unfortunately, the cells won't be viable until they've been stabilized, which could result in a massive explosion. At that moment, Starscream and Skywarp tear through the roof and take the cells. Megatron arrives to remove the cells carefully, as an explosion could be quite destructive, and the Seekers are not known for being gentle. Having taken the cells, Megatron transforms and has Starscream fire away, destroying the lab to prevent any more from being created.

Meanwhile, Cliffjumper is tearing toward the Autobot base. Heading into the control room, he informs Optimus Prime that he's found where the Decepticons have placed the electro-cells—in the same place Mirage patrolled yesterday. Mirage is shocked that he didn't get a reading on them, and Cliffjumper says that maybe Mirage did. Before any formal accusations are made, Optimus Prime politely tells Cliffjumper to shut up. The Autobot leader then leads a team to recover the cells.

At a canyon, the Decepticons have hooked up a buffer device to the cells. Starscream uses it as a chance to call Megatron a coward for not turning on the cells and filling Energon cubes, then he activates it. The cells fill the cubes rather quickly, but just as quickly drain the cubes and explode. Megatron walks over to show Screamer the business end of his fusion cannon.

Seriously, who wouldn't this guy beat up?

As he does so, the Autobots arrive, but are spotted by Laserbeak, who tells Soundwave. Megatron orders Soundwave to call in the Insecticons, with the promise of a special reward. A battle ensues, during which Mirage is injured by Skywarp, though he manages to tear off the Decepticon's insignia. The Insecticons then arrive, turning the tide of battle, but a stray shot by Shrapnel hits the buffer, risking an explosion. The Autobots take the Decepticons' distraction as a chance to retreat.

Mirage's attempts to mimick Animated's promotional material were less than sucessful.

At the base, Mirage is repaired, while Cliffjumper continues his accusations of treason. Mirage defends himself, and Optimus orders Cliffjumper on recon, with instructions to inform them if Megatron tries to move the cells. Ratchet tells Mirage to rest, but Mirage doesn't need rest. Leaving the base, he heads to the Insecticons' hideout, where they are discussing their "special reward" - two energon cubes. Going invisible and sneaking into the base, Mirage swipes the cubes while the Insecticons aren't looking, leaving the Decepticon insignia in their place, then drives to the valley. However, Cliffjumper spots him.

Naturally assuming that Mirage is a Decepticon, Cliffjumper prepares to fire, only for the Insecticons to arrive. As Mirage slips away, Starscream discovers Cliffjumper, but the little guy is able to escape. Megatron comes to investigate, and they spot Mirage. They fire, but it appears that the Decepticons are firing on the Insecticons. The Bugs and the Cons throw down, but Mirage is caught in the crossfire. Bombshell implants a cerebro-shell into Mirage and has him fire on the Decepticons as well. Megatron sees Mirage, puts two and two together, and convinces the Insecticons to stop fighting the Decepticons. Megatron also plans to use Mirage for a little trap of his own.

Should have done those shoelaces up Megatron.

Heading back to the base, Cliffjumper tells Prime what he saw. Optimus, Ratchet, and Cliffjumper head to the valley, where Mirage greets them and explains his original plan, saying that the Insecticons fled from the battle and the Decepticons chased after them. Despite Cliffjumper's warnings, the Autobots head to retrieve the cells, only for the Decepticons to ambush them, with Mirage joining in on the fire. Cliffjumper attacks Mirage, throwing him some distance, which apparently deactivates him.

O dark poison of my spark...

Bombshell commands Mirage to continue, but gives up. Ratchet then investigates and notices the cerebro-shell. Removing it allows Mirage to regain control, and he rejoins the fight—on the side of the Autobots. Prime makes a run for the cells, but Megatron concludes that if he can't have them, no one can. Firing randomly, he explodes the buffer device, sending the Decepticons everywhere possible as the Insecticons and Autobots retreat. Emerging from the wreckage, Megatron laments his hasty action.

As Prime informs the scientists of what happened, Ratchet works to repair Mirage, while Cliffjumper laughingly admits that he may need some repairs as well - for having doubted his friend. Awwww.

"I just love opening presents."

Skywarp as he breaks through the roof of a human research institute


"Where's the courage that your leadership demands, Megatron? To discover if something works, you must dare to... test it!"

Starscream activating the electro-cells, not noticing the irony when he mentioned 'courage'


"You fool! You'll destroy us all!"
"Destroy us all, oh brave Megatron? Perhaps the Decepticons should look elsewhere for direction. Someone prepared to make command decisions!"

Megatron and Starscream argue over who is a better leader. Again.


"This time, you have dared too much, Starscream. You must pay the price for your insolence!"

Megatron threatens to terminate Starscream. Again.

"There, Prime. In that valley, where Mirage found nothing."

Cliffjumper highlighting Mirage's failure to find the Decepticon base in a place he patrolled.


Cliffjumper: "Try and remember which side you're on, Mirage."
Optimus: "Keep your mind on the Decepticons, Cliffjumper."'

Optimus Prime reprimands Cliffjumper for his suspicions.


"An electro-cell! Come to papa!"
"Not so fast, papa."

Cliffjumper and Starscream with witty banter

(Mirage takes a swing at Skywarp, but misses. Skywarp then grabs his arms in a locking hold)
Skywarp: "Too fast for you, huh, Autobum?"

Skywarp fighting against Mirage.


"Release the electro-cells, Megatron. They don't belong to you."
"I possess them, therefore I own them! You've lost, Optimus Prime. Your destruction is at hand! Neither you nor your Autobot simpletons will prevent me from ruling the universe."

"Uh-oh. Sounds like I'm not alone."
"You're not! And this is one of those times when you really need a friend!"

Cliffjumper and Starscream's witty banter, part two!


"HAHAHAHAH! Time for me to disappear."

Mirage after tricking the Insecticons and the Decepticons into fighting one another.


"You missed again!"
"We both missed. Don't worry about the Autobots and worry about them!"

Megatron and Starscream cut short this round of the Blame Game to deal with attacking Insecticons.


"Those greedy little Insecticons are trying to steal my electro-cells. I will squash them like the bugs they are! Decepticons, attack!"

Megatron shows a preference for bombing bugs instead of using bug-bombs.


"You wouldn't cheat us. You need us to get rid of the Autobots. Maybe after that, you'll rob us blind. But not now!"

Bombshell after hearing Megatron's explanation of Mirage's trickery


"My... my electro-cells! They...they were meant for me! They were meann... argh!"

Megatron, damaged and in the ruins of the storage base which he destroyed

Notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right...
  • When Megatron is rushing to put out the fire on the electro-cells, there are two Starscreams beside him.
  • When the Decepticons accidentally fire on the Insecticons who believe Megatron has betrayed them, Shrapnel's voice is completely different.
  • The insignia that Mirage tears off Skywarp should surely be made of metal, but Mirage can be seen crushing it into a ball and opening it up again as if it were fabric on several occaisions.

Continuity errors

  • Megatron makes a case of how volatile the electro-cells are and immediately hands them over to Skywarp, one of the dumber Decepticons around.
  • Despite being a scientist, Starscream doesn't believe that any experimentation is needed with the cells. Then again, considering his delusions of grandeur, Starscream doesn't have a very good grip on reality.
  • Cliffjumper is very quick to accuse Mirage of treachery, despite never showing any signs of mistrusting him before—e.g., "More Than Meets the Eye, Part 2". Then again, Cliffjumper is a jerk.

Transformers references

  • Shrapnel makes use of his grenade launcher that fires spikes all around the target. It's nasty, as Mirage can attest.

Real-world references

  • References

Miscellaneous trivia

  • Poor Reflector. He (they?) appear(s?) just to be thrown back by the explosion of the electro-cells.
  • This episode ends with Cliffjumper jumping in Mirage's lap, and the two of them hugging and rolling over, while Ratchet laughs. This is the epitome of weird.
  • This is not the only time that a Mirage has been suspected of treachery.
