SWTOR.com posted an interview with Alexander Freed, the writer for the upcoming comic The Old Republic: The Lost Suns (which will be released Wednesday June 8), that revealed a lot of information on what the new series will be about, including some info on the main character: Theron Shan.

Q: The new comic series is The Lost Suns. Can you give us a brief introduction to it?

The Lost Suns is the story of Theron Shan – a Republic spy sent on a mission to learn what the Sith Empire has been up to since it signed a peace treaty with the Republic and why the Empire made certain mysterious demands in that treaty. For Theron, this means getting through closed borders without starting a war, working alongside a Jedi Master who may not be in his right mind and skirting the murk of the criminal underworld.

I like to describe The Lost Suns as our “ninth story” – every class in The Old Republic tells its own Star Wars epic, and Theron’s tale intersects with the other eight and pushes the greater game story forward, just as they do.

You can read the full interview here. Alexander Freed also wrote The Old Republic: Blood of the Empire comic series, and with the preview looks at the inside art, The Lost Suns has some promise.
