    I'll remain optimistic and say that they might be a surprise, so they are keeping them secret and we'll see them in action in the movie, and not just in a flashback!

    He does seem sincere about it. Makes me excited for all the possible stuff that will come after the trilogy ends!

    I think it more likely they have been dropped (not officially) rather then becoming these Praetorians. After all in other material it has been made clear that the KoR operate outside the FO hierarchy while I would humbly suggest that the Praetorians operate very much inside it.

    As to why the KoR have been ignored? hard to say, maybe they struggled to come up with a cool enough back story for them and hope that people will forget about the concept/potential.

    Or, if they have been very naughty and somebody needs revenge, something like Kill Bill.

    This is an egregious attempt to troll the good people at FakingStarWars.net. I can assure you Mike Zeroh has nothing to do us. Or my name isn't William "Willybobo" Bobo.

    Oooohhh great thread happy some brought it back up.

    I quoted a lot of folks because they brought a number of things that I the last book in the Aftermath books.

    In a couple of the Interludes we see the AOB transition from "not violet yet" to engaging in terror attacks. In one scene the AOB arrange a complex attack against a police station. The station was positioned over a stockpile of relics. One character in that interlude was a receptionist who is part of the AOB. She turns up in another interlude she is part of a AOB cell that riots in the same city they blew up the Police Station. Yupe Tashu is there and he has taken a leadership position in the AOB he gives out relics to some of the AOB; masks, a light sabre and so on. The receptionist ended up with a mask and after a jealous fight with her boyfriend she had a lightsabre as well. She felt the evil of the mask.

    Interesting things as it pertain to the AOB relevant to KOR;
    1- Wore lots of red and black.
    2- Used all kinds of weapons because they had not found lots of sabres yet. But the painted the weapons with red so the were inspired by red sabre's. Note all the Red highlights on the KOR weapons.
    3- They liked wearing masks!

    Also interesting is that before being pushed into the planet's core by Galius Rax Yupe Tashu was wearing a mask. It was an ancient Sith mask that Yupe considered powerful. When he was thrown into the core they implied that there was a release of energy started the instability in the core.
