Jaq In His Box is a short story written by fan fiction author and Star Wars Fanon Wiki administrator Sean “Goodwood” Nash. Published to the wiki on July 15, 2011, it is a one-shot story that takes place during the closing weeks of the Jedi Civil War. It is Nash's first completed work that is not a part of or related to his signature Tales from the Corps series.
In the closing weeks of the Jedi Civil War, a captured Jedi is brought to a hidden Sith facility. Once there, she is to be converted to the dark side by any means necessary, by a torturer who heartily enjoys his work. Despite his confidence, he ends up facing more than he ever thought possible.

Behind the scenes
The story for Jaq In His Box was inspired by a conversation which takes place between Atton Rand and the Jedi Exile, in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords after the Exile learns that there is more to him than meets the eye. The work's author, Sean "Goodwood" Nash, first came up with the idea early on July 14, completing the first draft by early evening, figuring that, to him, the story practically wrote itself.
Part of the impetus for writing the story came from Nash's desire for three things: to flesh out a main canonical character from the Knights of the Old Republic era, to explore the darker side of the Jedi Civil War and the Force itself, and to try his hand at writing something that was not related to his work within his Tales from the Corps series of novels, novellas, and short stories. The work's title is a play on words, comparing Atton's nickname with a jack-in-the-box.
