    As promised, General Sunrider and Master Shan, you will find the co-ordinates have already been uploaded by my agents onto the nava computer of the Ebon Hawk. Before you make the jump to hyperspace, however, you might want a word with the jedi Master that my agents inform me just entered into orbit in the upper atmosphere.

    IC: Juhani
    Meeting place, Tython

    Looking at the way the groups had split she was surprised, especially by Carth whom last time they were together seemed to be driven by two things revenge and helping the Republic. Juhani turned to the madalorian after he said that there was a jedi Master in the atmosphere, which explained why the force seemed to be getting more concentrated on this small planet. ?Did your agents happen to know which jedi Master has come here?? Juhani couldn't help to shake the feeling that something bad was about to happen, passably from the master but perhaps from somewhere else.

    "HK, surely you can convince your inferior 'siblings' to be nice to us?"
    ?Clarification: Oh I doubt they will be violent. Not initially anyway. I simply find the very fact of their existence demeaning. They give a bad name to assassin droids in general and me specifically. Were it not for some annoyingly particular sub-routines in my programming they would have been wiped out long ago.?
    ?Not to worry HK; it?s hardly going to be a reunion as the number of them which you shall soon dismantle will only be limited by the extent of your superiority. And considering that there?s only one sentient being on the entire planet, I doubt that even the most pious among the Jedi standing here could object to you raining down destruction to your heart?s content.?
    ?Correction: I think you underestimate the piousness of the Jedi present,? HK replied, looking rather pointedly at Bastila. He then turned to Loriana, ?with your permission master, I will take my leave and visit my ?dear? clones.?

    His master had returned to the ship with a greatly expanded crew, though T3 had actually encountered all of her new companions in the past. He took notice that his counterpart, HK-47, was no longer with the Master. He had been impartial to other droid?s presence in the past mostly, though HK?s translation capabilities were a convenience he?d miss. Now he would be forced to communicate through the ship?s display screens.

    The Master instructed him to plug into the ship and scan for nearby vessels. She explained that she was alerted to the presence of a nearby Jedi by a Mandalorian on the planet below, though he would not the identity of said Jedi.

    T3 performed the scan, finding not one, but two nearby vessels. Not sure as to which belonged to the Jedi Master, he searched the galactic database for both ships, and found that both were registered to Jedi. Apparently, the Mandalorian wasn?t as well informed as he would like to think.

    T3 relayed the information to his master through the ship?s display screen. ?Jedi Masters Atris and Nomi Sunrider are both aboard nearby vessels. Opening up communications now.?

    The HK-50 approached the Jedi Knight. He was the only meatbag on the entire planet, but he was the master, not just for this particular unit, but for every HK on M4-78. And that meant he would need to be informed of the intrusion.

    ?Statement: An A-type Nubian cruiser has dropped out of hyperspace in the outer reaches of this star system, Master. It appears to be a diplomatic vessel of some kind.

    The mysterious Jedi looked up from meditation. ?I know. I have felt a tremor in the Force; one I have not felt since?.? The Jedi trailed off in though.

    ?Warning: Any system with a sufficiently large fleet would likely attempt to halt our operations if they were to uncover the nature of this facility.

    ?Suggestion: We should destroy the ship as soon as it comes within range of our Ion canon, Master.?

    ?No!? snapped the Jedi. ?Put security on high alert, and once they enter the atmosphere escort them to a docking platform, but do not harm them. Not until we know what they want at least.?

    IC: General Loriana Sunrider, The Exile
    Tython


    It seemed as though the situation truly was out of her hands, and this pleased Loriana not at all. There were many other reasons she wanted HK with her, not the least of which was the fact that she knew exactly how capable he was. And somehow she knew, just knew that he would prove useful in the long run were she able to get him to come with her. But finding out exactly what he was needed for... well that sealed things on that end. Canderous and Mical might be competent, but even they would likely need HK's services while going into that mess.

    Deciding not to say another word until everything was sorted out, Loriana took stock of her new "crew". Bastila, a woman who she had never, and likely never would, been able to get along with for any significant length of time was now jammed into her ship. A decidedly tiny space for the two of them to be stuck together. This was not going to be a terribly pleasant trip, but at least she could potentially mend some bridges there. Or rather, pretend to.

    As she thought about that she also thought about Bastila's "plan", such as it was. It was a vast over-simplification of the situation. yes they needed ships, and yes they needed those ships to be at the rift... but they needed the RIGHT ships more than they need as many ships as they could get. But it wouldn't do to point that out at this point. No not in the least. Besides, Mical and Canderous were vastly better equiped to deal with the strategic side of matters on that front, so she needn't worry about it so much. It was after taking those things into account that she noticed that Bastila had moved off to the side.

    Moving to join her, Loriana stood there silently for a moment to get her thoughts in order. Softly she said, "You are right about what needs to be done, but from a military perspective there is so much more to it than that. I agree, we should try to put aside our differences for the sake of Revan, wherever he may be." Closing her eyes for a second, and Bastila would know how difficult this was for her, "I apologize for the way I left. It was un-Jedi of me." With that she turned away and stood some six or seven feet apart from everyone to simply listen to what was going on, and observe.

    Juhani was rather silent for the most part, but had also joined the journey into the rift. Carth Onasi, hero of the Republic and most recently an admiral (so far as she remembered or had heard) was also joining them. This likely meant she had lost her job as a pilot, not that it bothered her that much. Supposedly he was better at it anyway.

    Looking over the other direction, there was Atton. Sighing softly, she realized exactly how much she had wronged him in the past. And how likely it was she was going to have to do it again.

    Closing her eyes she just listened to the rest... until HK addressed her specifically. He was asking her permission to leave, not that she had much choice in the matter. Softly, oh so softly, "Go HK. Maybe we'll meet again." With that she turned away and walked back to her ship. But she did hear about the coordinates and the fact that both Atris and Nomi Sunrider, her relative, were present. Their presence was rather obvious when she knew to look for it, and honestly at this point they were both among the last people she wanted to see again.

    Muttering to herself as she boarded the ship she told T3 to setup some sort of communications so that she, and likely Bastila, could talk to them. Then she headed to the kitchen area to get some water, her throat was parched.

    As the others entered the ship she caught Carth after he stepped aboard and had looked around for a few moments. "Go and get the ship ready to go, get the coordinates set and then we'll come and talk about what's going on with the other Jedi. You won't be left out of the loop." She knew she would have hated to be so given the situation.

    "Bastila, we have people to speak with." And with that she headed to the communications lounge just before the cockpit at the end of

    Taking heavy steps, Atton entered the Ebon Hawk. He then walked over to one corridor and quietly sat alone in the dark room. He was thinking about the last time he was on this ship. that last time he ever trusted Sunrider. Thinking about this brought up so much anger. it took everything he had to calm himself. he thought about what could happen if he lost his cool, worst of all if he took his eyes off the others. Like Carth, Atton has become incapable of trusting others easily, especially other jedi. He trusted Ergeron more then some of the others. if any of the reasons why he was here, it was to ensure to himself that the mission goes according to plan.

    OoC: Now that the two parties have split up, each is going to be operating on its own time scale for a while. The reason for this will become clear to the members of the Ebon Hawk crew shortly. The below post concerns the Starbird crew after the Ebon Hawk departed Tython and while it is (presumably) en route to the Tear.

    IC: Ergeron
    Tython, GenoHaradan Base


    Ergeron had been trying furiously to open a line of communications with the Starbird for several minutes without success. On the on hand, it was imperative that he brief them on the details of their mission before they landed of the droid planet. On the other, he had been forced to wait until the Ebon Hawk had made the jump into hyperspace. He would not risk General Sunrider and Master Shan learning of his true agenda. They were going where he knew they needed to be, yet he was certain that they would have rejected their destiny beyond the Tear had he not been carefully selective of the information he had given to them.

    At last he succeeded; the Starbird must have just dropped out of hyperspace.

    ?Gentlemen, a war is coming, the likes of which has not been seen since the formation of the Republic. It is to be a war for the reunification of this galaxy. Your actions on M4-78 and the other planets to which you shall soon venture will determine its success. But before I explain to you your mission, it is necessary that you first know what you are fighting for.

    ?Even as we speak, the Ebon Hawk is about to pass through the Tear. And while their mission there is of the utmost importance itself, it was also necessary for another reason: regardless of whether they succeed or fail to find Revan, I do not anticipate that any of them will ever return. And while individual knights remain, without General Sunrider and Master Shan, the Order as it once was can never return.

    ?Indeed, it must not return. The Jedi were the adhesive which bound the Republic together. They were both its greatest strength, and its greatest weakness. For when the bonds of the Jedi faltered, beginning with Exar Kun and culminating with the schism between Loriana and Bastila, the unity of the Republic also weakened.

    ?Not only that, but the Jedi claimed to be guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy, though in truth they were little more than the enforcers and defenders of a government which itself fostered injustice and preyed upon its citizens. And I?m referring not only to the corruption exhibited by so many of its politicians. Even among those who truly sought to serve with honesty, nearly all supported short-sighted policies which perpetuated poverty, punished prosperity, infringed upon natural liberties, propped up bureaucracy, allowed legalities and loopholes to trample true justice, and above all submitted to the mob rule of popularity instead of walking the way of righteousness. The crooked, the honest, even the fickle masses, gave life to a malevolent democracy, a tyranny of the many, and in doing so were the agents of their own oppression.

    ?What we raise from the ashes must be altogether different: neither a Republic nor an Empire; not ruled by many or a few or by one, but ruled by Natural Law itself. And preserving this new, reunited society must be a newly untied force authorized by such a government to maintain justice and individual liberties, comprised of Force-sensitives, Guild members, Mandalorians, and others, all working together as one.

    ?That is where you come in, Mical and Canderous. It is up to you to lead your respective factions to this common goal. It is also the reason I have sent you here. On M4-78 is only one living being, a Jedi with whom you all have served: Bao-Dur.

    One Month before . . .

    Among the trees were small villages, everywhere. It would have been impossible to find anybody there by sensors or asking, but a Jedi did not need to such trivial tools. If he was meant to find someone, Nomi knew, they found them. Like Master Thon had found her and Master Bastila had been found by her once. Nodding to the people on the street she passed through them. She had never worn robes, never been ceremonial with her status. But she was wearing her lightsaber theses days. And an aura of nobleness that identified her as what she was. A Jedi. The galaxy would need to know she was still there. Still protecting it, whenever she could.

    Entering the small tea house Nomi saw immediately who she had been looking for. The younger woman she had tracked down for a few weeks was having tea. Something bitter and broken was in her. But still some light. Redemption. Nomi had failed once to offer it to a man and he had saved her daughter. She wouldn´t make that mistake again.

    Slowly, without haste she approached the other woman. Aged, but not her age by far. A mild smile came to her mouth. "Hello. Atris. I assume you still remember me? May I sit?"

    Tython . . .

    The ancient homeworld of the Jedi and the place where things were set in motion. In the force she could feel the power of change. Trembles foreshadowing things to come.

    Flying her fighter towards Tython and seeing Atris next to her doing the same, she smiled as she felt the presence of Bastila Shan. And her grand-daughter. Lorianna Sunrider. The Exile. Still proud and not understanding. While Bastila knew, but could not show the galaxy, for she stood in her own way. Both woman incomplete in their ways, but now united by their love for Revan. Revan, himself incomplete in so many ways. Perhaps this was what it was about. Completeness.

    After setting it down she approached both woman, Bastila and Lorianna, waiting for Atris to catch up. "Hello Grandchild. I haven´t seen you on Dantooine recently. It is a shame." Nomi said and then turned to Bastila. Nodding. "Master Shan?" she smiled, treating the younger woman with respect. It was important to show the Jedi were still united. Actually, they were . . .

    One month earlier...

    The Jedi Master that had almost become a Sith Lord sat down, musing over the white crockery. It was cracked, and worn, the blue pattern displaying a star dragon rolling around from the handle to the front, where it met the face of another dragon, itself running from the other side of the handle. She wondered if it was supposed to be a reflection of her.

    Patrons occasionally tossed furtive glances at Atris, and she supposed that it was no surprise. Her hair was still pinned back, held up above her head, and it naturally gave her an aura of sophistication. The scowl on her lips were almost glued there, as if it had been carved on her face. Atris found she was touching her cheek, to what had been carved there - a soft lightsaber graze, the tip of a blade nicking her cheek.

    Atris' head twitched at the memory, and she acknowledged that was more than likely what they were looking at; the elderly patrons on the other side of her face paid her little heed. Closing her eyes, Atris tried to calm herself, reaching for the porcelain cup and wondering where to go next.

    She is here.

    Atris jerked at the old womans voice, but managed to get her hand under control, and not make a scene. There was no 'her' here. Not at all. She had gone to the Unknown Regions - to find him. Him, the most dangerous man in the known galaxy. And, paradoxically, its only hope. She couldn't understand that, couldn't decipher the rhyme nor reason behind the -

    "Hello. Atris. I assume you still remember me? May I sit?"

    Atris' arm spasmed, and the porcelain dropped from her hand, hitting the table and cracking, spilling the hot tea upon the table. Pieces spun off, Atris catching several soaked pieces in her hands, grimacing at the heat of the fluid. Other patrons looked up, but Atris simply focused on the person before her.

    Her jaw gaped.

    I told you...

    "I thought... I had thought you were at..."

    At Katarr...

    IC: Atris
    Tython

    Between her and her visions... or perhaps she should call them intuitions? - it hadn't been long before Atris arrived at Tython, searching for answers, and for friends. And enemies. Something... something was coming. She knew it. And so did she. The two ships decanted from hyperspace, and Atris looked through her larger freighter viewport at Sunrider, who was flying her fighter craft. Atris, for her part, felt many presences.

    Including that of Lorianna Sunrider.

    The grand-daughter that she had tried fervently to kill a decade earlier. Atris squeezed her eyes shut, wondering when she would ever stop becoming so conflicted! She missed her old determination, and sense that everything she did was right. Would it ever return, she wondered?

    Never, I imagine.

    The two ships landed, and Atris trailed behind as Sunrider strode off - Atris still thought of Lorianna as 'the Exile'. It was hard not to. But then, that fact made her remember the horrors she had perpetuated, and the scar on her face... which sent Atris twirling back towards her lessor half.

    Towards Darth Traya.

    The Exile spat first. She always had struck quickly. "What do you want Atris?"

    Atris was surprised she hadn't been called 'Darth Traya' by her - considering how much damage she personally had done. Atris shrunk away, and then Sunrider spoke. "Hello Grandchild. I haven´t seen you on Dantooine recently. It is a shame." Nomi's kindness was replete - immense - and it stirred pride in Atris.

    The old pride. Atris raised a hand to forestall Nomi from continuing. "I can defend myself, Nomi. Thank you." Atris turned to face the Exile. "We can get this over and done with now, if you want, Lorianna, or we can harbor grudges until they get here. Which would you prefer?"

    Mical sat reclining in the co-pilot's couch with his boot-clad feet resting on the nearest empty spot of console, gazing at a small reddish point of light in the distance against the galaxy's typically dense backdrop of stars, their target, M4-78. Having been out of hyperspace for only a few minutes, the Disciple was taking some time to relax and center himself within the Force, preparing for the mission ahead. Casually eying the scanning displays, he noticed a spike in delta rays that were washing over the craft. Such detections usually only meant one thing. Boosting the Starbird's own scanning power to see just what the source of the rays were, he smiled.

    The Jedi sat up straight and looked over to Canderous, who was seated nearby in the pilot's couch, "Looks like they've detected our Cronau burst. I'm reading long range scanning coming in from the planet. What do you think we should-"

    He was interrupted by the incessant beeping of the comms system, indicating an incoming message. Mical pressed the button to take the call after having examined its origin, and a small hologram of Ergeron materialized above the cockpit's center console.

    "This is Starbird Ergeron, go ahead."

    The Exile knew better. Actually Lorianna seemed to love the role. As she had more or less made herself an Exile of the order, again.

    As if she did not know the relevance of Allies or hadn´t fought in a war. A war far more terrible than the one Lorianna had served in.

    Yet, Bastila heard when Lorianna excused her behavior. No, actually she regretted it. Sighing Bastila nodded, swallowing her pride.

    "We all did things not very Jedi-like, did we?" Bastila whispered. Reminding herself of the rage and ambition, the pride and anger she had once felt. As Malak´s apprentice. As a Sith. "You will always be welcome." She replied with a bitter smile. "And for now, we will discuss things while fighting side-by-side. I am happy you are here, Lorianna." Bastila added. Then they turned to the arrivals. Nomi Sunrider. Bastila felt relief. The probably most powerful Jedi in existence was here. And with her was . . . Atris. The treacherous Jedi Master. Who had sacrificed her order on Katarr. Bastila´s features went grim, as Nomi greeted her. "Master Sunrider, my honor. As I see your absence from our academy had been brief but not without affect. You travel with her kind?" Bastila asked. Not accusing, but demanding. What did this mean?

    As the meatbag known as Ergeron wrapped up his briefing an all but forgotten sub-routine in HK-47s Heuristic Processor was activated. His blood red eyes flickered for a moment as the long dormant programming added new sets of variables to his decision making protocols.
    For now, nothing changed. He, Canderous and Mical still had a mission to complete, droids to disassemble and meatbags to fry. But once that was done, if neither Revan nor the Exile returned from beyond the tear, then his protocols would get a little fuzzy.
    But he would have plenty of time to reflect on that later, for now they needed to decide on a course of action for meeting Bao-Dur.

    "You would send them to certain death? You would send her-" Mical stopped himself, not willing to reveal his feelings so fully to the Mandalorian.

    "What kind of government are you seeking to establish? Confederacies are inherently weak. A galactic confederation would never stand against full and concentrated invasion; you're an idealist, perhaps even more so than myself."


    Once again, Ergeron found baseless accusations being hurled against him. He had practically been a grand master of Dejarik during his commission in the Mandalorian military, and had been manipulating events now as if he were playing the game on a galactic scale. But each time he thought he had his holomonsters positioned, they proved to have a will of their own. It was most frustrating.

    But if Dejarik had taught him strategy, the field of battle had taught him improvisation in the face of the unexpected.

    ?I never said that I was sending them to certain death, only that I did not expect them to return. Revan himself was unable to escape that mysterious dimension, and he was at least as powerful as their combined strength.? Perhaps his words had been hyperbole, perhaps not. Even had Ergeron traveled extensively with the former Dark Lord, there would have been no way in which a non-Force sensitive could ever truly gauge the power of such a legendary Jedi. But the point was valid. Still, Ergeron had found it odd that Mical would be so shocked: he had never promised any of those he contacted success, but only exhorted the attempt out of its great necessity.

    ?As for the type of government we shall bring forth, you once again assume wrongly. Just because it will not be a republic or empire does not mean that it will be a confederacy either. Nor shall it be weak, though it will be limited. In fact, this limitation shall be the source of its strength. All of its resources shall be devoted to its singular focus. No longer will matters such as trade, education, health, or any other act of futility distract government from its proper function: the protection of its people against all threats, from the wickedness and injustice of criminal activity within its borders to the threats of foreign invaders such as the Sith, and even from itself.

    ?And as for being an idealist, I do not deny it, but with the Jedi out of the way the time has come when it is finally possible to make those ideals a reality.?

    Main Behavioral Core, M4-78


    Bar-Dur reached out in the Force, merging his mind with the interfaces of the pilot droids about to intercept the Nubian vessel. Such was among the many new Force-abilities which he had developed in isolation. Unrestrained by the authority of any order, he was free to explore aspects of the Force considered taboo by the ancient Jedi, ever pushing the envelope in his knowledge. But unlike the Sith, there was nothing occult in his techniques. Yet neither was he like the Jedi, dwelling on the Living Force. He knew it to be an energy field; more versatile and sublime than any other type of energy, but it was ultimately nothing more.

    Telepathically he ordered the droids to jam the ship?s communications and instruct its passengers to follow escort to his personal hanger. As his connection to machines had grown, his connection to other living beings had diminished. He was not yet sure who among his old comrades had sought him out or for what purpose, but he vowed to himself to quickly uncover the purpose for their intrusion.

    Aditional info: He is the main protagonist of the new Kotor comics.
    --Personality (what is your personal interpretation of the character?):
    In his youth, Zayne Carrick wasn't anything special...actualy...let me rectify that; he was very special, he was the worst padawan ever seen or herd of. This was a sideefect of his "special" conexion to the force (wich coul easily be passed as total lack of talent...or marginal force sensitivity) wich made his powers and abilities true wild cards. An example is the fact that during the comics he constantly passes from one limit of proficiency to the other...he couldn't catch a lowly criminal but he could fight with some mesure of succes his own highly trained Jedi Guardian Master...
    On the other hand...this was not a permanent condition...it only ment his training in the force through usual means would be harder and would take longer time that in the case of any other padawan. Through extraordinary conditions, and seamingly outrageous blows of good and bad luck Zayne manages to become quite a powerfull Jedi, his grasp of the force continuing to strenghten.
    His personality constantly jumps from cinical towards his own fate to pesimistic thanks to his own experience. Nonetheless, he's never surendered to his apparent fate, managing to soldier on agains the odds. In his early days he had if no, certanly little self respect or belief in his powers, but after managing to clear his name, survive the Mandalorian Wars and evading the Sith Assasins his self respect should have reached at least a decent level.
    The code by wich he lives his life is quite similar to Master Qui-Gon-Jin's...namely "Live by the moment!". This aspect of his character is bouth a blessing and a curse, as he rarely thinks before acting.
    --Recent personal history (what have they done since their last appearance?):
    After leaving the jedi order he joined his companions...his true order...the ones who belived in him and who faught along side him even when he was branded as "padawan slayer". They had numerous adventures, mixing in the Mandalorian war...usualy taking up the profesion of pirates against the named invading force, always standing on the republic's side.
    Once Sion and his Sith bredren started hunting Jedi, Zayne left his friends to spare them the Sith hunt, thus protecting them.
    I need help with the means by wich he could join the party... But it should be easy as Zayne is known for te peculiar way the force guids him...usualy just making him fall in the wrong place, at the wrong time, in the wrong fashion; but, then again...it seams to work for him.
    After reading all the current issues of the comic I can say with no chance for error
    that just floating around in space in a shuttle would be quite normal for Zayne, as the force keeps puting him in the strangest of situations...
    Current citizenship
    --Name of Planet (canonical planets only): His home planet is Phaeda (canonical...it DOES exist...you can find it on wookiepedia, like)
    --Type of Government: ???
    --Relevant Policies: None really

    OoC: Hey Landros, I wasn't sure if you could receive Private Messages either, so I decided to reply as with a post as well. At the start of the game I announced in the rules that the maximum number of active players at any given time would be nine, and already I've bent that rule to allow for up to eleven. We have ten playing currently and I'm awaiting a character sheet from the first person on the waiting list. I'm going to add you to the waiting list as well, as it would be unfair to add you to the game when others have announced their intentions to join first, though I will reserve Zayne for you (I'd been hoping that someone would choose the character). Until then, keep following along with the story as it unfolds and I'll let you know when the time comes. I can tell you this much now, however: Zayne will join in as part of the reunification story-arch in the regular Galaxy (as opposed to him starting out within the Tear). He will probable encounter the Starbird crew sometime after their current mission on M4-78.

    Ooc: Thanks! I will read on the role play with greath pleasure ;) Actualy...I've already red the hall thing so far... I'll be ready for when the time comes for Zayne to make his babbling presence felt... of cours, reaching the age of 30 or so probably cured that a bit.

    And another thing...as presented in the comic Zayne sounds more like a Potentium follower in stead of a Living force follower. What do you think? He doesn't see in the traditional white/black jedi colors, but his definition of right and wrong is as definite and corect as any Jedi Master's. This certanly sounds like Potentium to me...

    OoC: Mister_Master, who was playing Carth Onasi, has recently informed me that he will no longer be able to continue in the game. In addition to informing the next player on the waiting list that a spot has become available, I will be making Carth into a non-player character. This seems to fit the narrative flow of our game better than to simply kill the character off. I will be making an in-character post as Carth sometime tomorrow. As pilot of the Ebon Hawk, it is his decision as to when to depart for the Tear. Considering the slower nature of the game as of late, and also that is where the pace truly begins to pick up, I plan to move the plot there sooner rather than later.

    IC: Carth Onasi
    Ebon Hawk, Tython


    Carth couldn?t see the point of standing around talking when such conversation could just as easily take place aboard the Ebon Hawk as it makes its way through hyperspace towards their destination. Nor was there anything to be gained by detaining the uninvited Jedi at Tython. Even a non-Force sensitive such as himself could tell that their inclusion on the mission was inevitable, regardless of his distrust for them; how much more than could the Jedi present with him realize they would not be able to prevent Atris and Nomi from boarding the ship. Growing impatient, he pulled rank as captain of the ship and ordered everyone to board at once.

    After inputting the coordinates into the navacomputer and making the jump to hyperspace, Carth forwent making his way to the cabin, instead remaining alone in silence and thought for the long hours it took to travel from the deep core of the galaxy to its very edge. There was already enough tension between Bastila and General Sundrider confined to such close quarters, but the presence of Atris and Nomi made the situation exponentially worse. But while he was proud to serve alongside the Jedi, he was not one of them, nor were their affairs his interest or concern. So he let them be for now, hoping that in their collective wisdom the might come to a temporary peace and understanding with one another, at the very least for the sake of the mission.

    As he thought this, his mind turned to the object of their mission, the man who had earned their collective loyalty despite their many differences, who motivated all of them gladly to risk their own lives for his: Revan. Yet Carth could not help but wonder if their individual loyalties were to different ?Revans? altogether. Not only that they had formed different perceptions of who Revan was, but that Revan himself had operated under various names and personalities throughout his life, all of who Carth had known in some way or another. The first had been ?the Revanchist.? Carth had heard his real name used only a few times prior to his entrance into the Mandalorian Wars, and could not now remember what it had been. In a lot of ways, Carth considered this to be the true Revan. Part of him still had immeasurable respect for the man who turned the tide of the whole war and saved the Republic from being conquered. But then there was Darth Revan; after Saul Karath, no one had done more to undermine his trust in others than the self-proclaimed Sith Lord. Carth sometimes questioned whether it was even right to view him as being Revan at all. Was Darth Revan merely a perverted persona, a twisted, corrupt version of the real Revan who had sacrificed all, including his soul, to save the Republic? Or perhaps Carth had become increasingly unwilling to reconcile the good man he had served under and the great traitor as being on and the same.

    Then, of course, there was Kotor Darklighter, the artificial identity the Jedi Council had given the brainwashed Revan. Yet, despite being utterly fake, it was certainly the Revan which Carth preferred. It was also the one Carth felt Revan was least likely to possess, should they succeed in finding him. It had begun to erode while they were still on Taris together, with aspects of both his true self and the Dark Lord seeping through in his actions, though Carth hadn?t realized it till after Saul had told him the truth. Even Revan himself seemed confused as to the nature of his present identity following the Battle of Rakata Prime. All this forced the question: if Revan is indeed alive, who is he now?

    OoC: I want to remind everyone playing that the rules require that posts be made within a timely manner. There has been a severe lack of in-character posts this last week.

    on board ebon hawk

    Juhani walked out of the sleeping quarters and silently headed past the heated discussions happening between Bastila and The Exile, already feeling that it was getting on her nerves, and headed into the bridge. Having been so quiet Carth seemed not to notice her so she looked at the navi computer to find out how much longer they had till they arrived at the rift.

    She looked at carth who seemed to be deep in thought so she left and searched the ship for this Atton, whom she didn't know at all and consequently trusted even less then the people whom she knew. While leaving the bridge she pulled the force around her making herself invisible, An easy way for her to not get drawn into an argument with Bastila and the exile as she walked past there conversation her eyes were drawn to the new Jedi woman, who was older then everyone here but had an air of knowledge, she then decided that she would seek out this woman when she wasn't busy and talk to her as well. After leaving the main room of the ebon hawk she stopped her pull on the force and started walking the halls looking for Atton.

    Bastila Shan
    Ebon Hawk

    After their reunion with Master Sunrider she had withdrawn. Meditating, clearing the confusion that Tython had brought and instead see the truth.

    Master Sunrider, Nomi Sunrider´s presence was comforting and alarming at the same time. Had Nomi really felt it necessary to accompany them? Had she felt something Bastial could not perceive? Technically Bastila was the Grandmaster of her order. But she was well aware, in reality Nomi Sunrider was way beyond her insight and power. The old woman was what held the Jedi Order together.

    Sighing, she reached out to her, instinctivly, as she tried to become deeper involved into the living energy.

    IC: Atton Rand


    While in a deep meditation in his quarters, Atton's concentration was broken. he sensed that someone was looking for him. he knew at had to be one of the others, he couldn't feel the same aura as the general, and Bastila doesn't seem like the type to seek him for counsel or any other conversation, they were polar opposites. so it was now left down to one of the other mysterious passengers. he also sensed distrust within this person, Atton didn't really blame them, if it is all the same the feeling was mutual. he wondered why a person would go looking for him of all people, why would they talk to him? possibly to try and pick his brain to understand his role and reason for being on this ship. well atton wouldn't mind the conversation, if anything it would fuel some excitement on this boring ship. well except for the soon to come back and fourth between Bastila and Lorianna.

    This person was getting closer, he could feel it; and for some reason the suspense was killing him. he wanted to speak to this person. he finally stood up, watching the door, he began pacing back and fourth within the room. Patience was not a virtue he shared with other jedi, but then again he was not like other jedi. he finally then decided to speak to the unknown.

    "Hey in here!"

    He waited a couple of moments, he then heard footsteps.

    "well you aren't you the curious type. why do come looking for me?"

    He waited a moment, then heard that the footsteps stopped right in front of the door, he still couldn't see who this mysterious stranger was.

    IC: Juhani
    On board ebon hawk

    Juhani stopped when she heard Atton's voice, stepping through the door she looked at him. "How did you know I was looking for you?" Juhani thought for half a second then moved further into the room "Really I was wanting to find out about you, who are you and why is it that you have been chosen to be brought into this mission?" She knelt on the floor and looked up at him.

    In her mind she was considering this man, his stance shows that he is distrustful and ready just in case a weapon is drawn however his wieght distribution suggests that he might not be overly confident in his abilities as a fighter.
