Persuasive Terror is the first Episode of Guardians of Peace and Justice by Darth Kikinou.
The Jedi Order dispatches Jedi Master Dooku and the Jedi Knight Sifo-Dyas to Dac after a series of coordinated suicide bombings by Quarren terrorists killed thousands of Mon Calamari civilians. After being briefed by the Mon Calamari queen, Sifo-Dyas was ordered to investigate the root of the bombings by the Jedi Council. After thwarting a new attack, Sifo-Dyas discovered that the mercenary Qymaen Jai Sheelal had been arming the Quarren terrorists. As Sifo-Dyas attempted to apprehend Jai Sheelal, he followed the mercenary to a Neimoidian ship where an apparent misunderstanding allowed Jai Sheelal to escape, depriving the Jedi from discovering that the Neimoidian villain Nute Gunray was actually Jai Sheelal's employer, and was taking advantage of the situation to gain the political momentum to create the Trade Federation, a military backed organization of which he was put in charge. Meanwhile, two professors studying the ancient order of the Sith discovered a lost artifact that may permit them to resurrect the order.
