    ~~~Star Wars: Betrayal Across the Stars~~~


    The following is taken from Star Wars: The New Essential Chronology (page 7), in order to set the scene for those unfamiliar with the ancient Jedi Knights:

    "The Next Great Schism between the light and dark sides occurred approximately 7000 B.B.Y. By this time lightsabers had become more robust, although each required the use of a plug-in power pack attached to the user's belt. Among the Jedi Order, a cadre of darksiders made a significant discovery - Force of sufficient intensity could bend life itself. They pioneered the twisted science of dark side mutations, and the century-long war that followed is known as the Hundred-Year Darkness.

    The exiled Jedi raised an animalistic army - some of their soldiers monstrous, others merely pitiful. During the war's later years, their science birthed Leviathans, living superweapons that shambled across battlefields and drew life-essences into the blister-traps that speckled their broad backs."


    This is where the RP shall pick up, around 90 years into the war. Despite what anyone may find in the New Chronology about the war's outcome, this game will be open-ended and anything may happen. Historically, the darksiders are defeated and flee into unknown space where they find the Sith species. Whether or not this actually comes close to occurring will be the players' decision.


    It is a time of great uncertainty in the Old Republic. A bitter conflict, which will come to be known as the Second Great Schism, has engulfed the Jedi Order. Wielders of the dark side, abhorrent to the Jedi teachings, have turned against their fellow Knights in epic battles across the length and breadth of the galaxy.

    The leader of the opposition to the Republic and the Jedi is the charismatic former Knight Ajunta Pall. His savage armies stalk scores of war-torn worlds, longing patiently for their opportunity to destroy their adversaries.

    The Republic however, with a Senate presided over by the human Supreme Chancellor Kelcus Veltescha, is in disarray, and two factions are present in the Senate. The majority party, the Perovign, are strongly opposed to the war which has gone on for so long. Almost to be considered radicals, the decades of strife have, in their eyes, blurred the line between the opposing sides of the Force, and they see it all as a mere holy war between differing religions. Those who support the war make up the rest of the whole, and are in a minority. The Kekk'Domin are the militarists who can still see the underlying currents which drew the Jedi into conflict in the beginning. The Senate is filled with debate and drama as the two sides battle for complete control in the Republic's decision-making.

    The Factions:

    The Dark Jedi:
    Flaring strong still after 90 years of battle, the Dark Jedi, along with their conscript and mutant armies are drawing ever-nearer to the Republic's key worlds. Their drive toward victory is insatiable. Their thirst for the discovery and free-use of the potential powers of the darkness of the Force has driven them through the decades. They know only war and do not tire of it. Their fortified capital world and the site of their horrific mutation work is the planet Corbos.

    The Republic:
    The ruling force in the galaxy, the Republic has existed for 18000 years. Their reign has been at times tenuous, but they have always managed to persevere thanks in no small part to the Jedi Order. In more recent times, namely since the beginning of the still-furious Great Schism's conflict, the Republic and many of its citizens have lost faith in the Jedi, as this is the longest war the Republic has ever fought. The true patriots from the war's early decades have since passed on due to old age and dying in battle, and the Jedi are now viewed by many as the instigators of the enti/>/>

Earning himself the enmity of some of the most powerful dark jedi and their supporters in the senate.

    Biography

    ---Personal History: Miles was born on the city world of Trantor within a powerful family. His father taught him hard discipline as a child, and enrolled him into the military early, at the age of 13. From there, he became tough and stronger, deciding that only strength would prevail; the weak would perish. His will to fight on and become stronger, and including his pride (or ego, as some would call it), made him tough and very difficult to break. A few times he was punished for turning the tables on his instructors, but the torture only made him more powerful. He loved power and domination. He was known as Miles Dominus, but he legally changed his name to Miles Victor Dominus, representing "Soldier" and "Conqueror" in his first two names. He loved it. He graduated with high militaristic honors, and was known well throughout the entire Trantor academy. He officially began to fight as a soldier for the Republic in the war at the age of 20, fighting hard, enjoying the rush of war and domination over the weaker enemies of the Republic. Even though some viewed him as evil or heartless, he was still a well respected patriot. He moved his ways up in the ranks, until he reached the rank of General. He still fought on, but he eventually retired at the age of 55. He decided to command the armies of the Republic without having to exhaust himself. He ran for senator of Trantor a year after retirement, and won the election. He now is still the Senator of the planet. Some even have come to call him a military dictator. He also is the head of the Kekk'Domin.
    ---Military History: Was a Soldier of the Republic, for his homeplanet Trantor. Now he is retired and was elected to represent his planet.
