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.
