We simply don't know.
Darn. Well, I guess I'll just maintain my spirit-only assumption then, unless/until new information comes out on the matter.
Given that Lesovikk has appeared in The Powers That Be, I'm now wondering whether Greg was planning to bring Nikila back into the story...
Woah, nice catch...and thinking about it, I would have loved to have seen that; I always thought Nikila was cool and I would have definitely enjoyed a little resolution plot between her and Lesovikk.
And judging by this old quote that I happened upon while sifting through the archives, it seems that we would, in fact, have learned how Jaller's resurrection correlated to the Red Star:
I will give you a scoop, which you can share (or not) as you choose -- a big part of the rest of this serial is going to take place inside the red star ... which is NOT altogether for what people think it is for ... and I will give you some things to keep in mind:
1) The beings in the red star
2) Jaller's death and rebirth in MOL, and exactly how and why it happened.
3) Why it was safe for Teridax to kill so many Makuta over the years
