I never knew how freeing it could be to stand shoulder to shoulder with brothers and sisters who were so united by their cause that they would die for it, and each other. That is where we are, what we are: the front line, the guardians, the soldiers, the knights of the republic. No matter what the cost, we will not let it fall. Many Jedi who I am close to do not share my views. I have not seen Mater Sunrider for some time now. Master Kavar is no longer the man he was; ten years ago, he was where we are now, but Vrook and the rest of the Council has sucked him in. My own master wanders far from known space. And Atris? well. She was furious. I think she rose too quickly to her high position on the council, and has become entangled and made cynical by Vrook and his naysayers, and now she parrots a party line abut serenity and non-involvement while millions die. Her rivalry with the Revanchist has not helped the situation either. It?s like a game to him, toying with her emotions, collapsing her oh-so-fine control of her temper. With all that he has to deal with, I?m glad he?s able to find humor somewhere. However, if he could choose someone else to pick on, it would make my life a lot easier. While I do not regret answering the Revanchist?s call, I fear that my decision could cost me my relationship with Atris. She?s been like a big sister to me, and I don?t want to lose that.
