Splendid Ap's History

Splendid Ap was one of the four Bedlam Spirits that inhabited the region near the Bedlam Pulsar. During the Galactic Civil War, they learned to take on physical forms and encountered Princess Leia Organa on the planet Bedlam, where she had been forced to land by Imperial forces. The spirits called Tilotny and Horliss-Horliss decided to play with Organa and her stormtrooper pursuers, eventually killing them all. After they tired of playing, Tilotny let Splendid Ap clean up the mess; he revived Organa and the stormtroopers but accidentally transported the latter 8,000 years into the past.

An omnipotent, transdimensional being, Splendid Ap was one of the Bedlam Spirits who existed in the stark whiteness that digested hyperspace near the Bedlam Pulsar. The spirits were generally non-corporeal beings but when they experimented with time, matter, and space the spirit known as Tilotny discovered how to take on a shape. Splendid Ap and his fellow spirits, Horliss-Horliss and Cold Danda Sine, copied Tilotny's newfound ability and materialized on the planet Bedlam at some point during the Galactic Civil War.

As the group discussed their new forms and surroundings, they met Princess Leia Organa, a member of the Alliance to Restore the Republic who had been forced to land on the planet and was being pursued by three Imperial stormtroopers. Tilotny, who believed herself to have created the world around them, claimed to have created Organa and her pursuers too and she and Horliss-Horliss began to play with the lifeforms. Before long, all four of the mortals were dead; Organa's heart was turned to diamond by Horliss-Horliss, while Tilotny crystallized one stormtrooper and merged the other two into a single mass of limbs. Soon tiring of their game, Tilotny, Cold Danda Sine and Horliss-Horliss decided to leave, with Tilotny instructing Splendid Ap to clean up the mess they had made. Splendid Ap restored the beings to life and their original forms but, failing to fully understand time and space, unwittingly sent the stormtroopers 8,000 years into the past.
