Disclaimer: Star Wars is owned by G.L. and the mouse. Bird dreams and more 1. Baby After saving a Jedi padawan firefighter Ivano Arvedai was admitted to the healers’ ward of the Jedi temple. He had been unaware that he was injured and had fought the healers who were trying to help him. But resistance was futile and he came to appreciate the care. Now that he was out of the long sedation and sleeping more or less normally Ivano Arvedai had dreams. Jedi healer Kaagi Adin – forming a bond because his patient was on a ventilator and unable to speak – sensed those dreams and was awed when Ivano saved a little baby and his family. 2. Child That had been 300 years ago when Ivano was a young firefighter in Noranan fire house number two. Kaagi got tears in his eyes when he sensed more. ‘I was two when I left Moniron.’ Ivano met the child he had rescued again when he was showing a group the fire-equipment. The two year old toddler was very interested in the engine. Kaagi had been two when his parents were murdered and he had escaped – put by his father on the back of a husan – to be found later hiding in a bush by two Jedi knights on a visit. 3. Teenager A third dream was about the same child now being a teenager and still interested in everything the fire fighters did. The teenager joined the junior future firefighters club. And Kaagi remembered his own childhood. As a child he was found more in the apartment of the Master – padawan team that had rescued him than in the crèche. Master Glinis Ra-Ond and padawan Aaqu Maerhin became his new family. The work that they did in the healers’ ward was very interesting for the child. He wanted to become a healer too. Teenager Kaagi became the new padawan of Master Ra-Ond. 4. Adult Kaagi grinned when he sensed more from the dreaming Ivano. The teenager had as soon as he was considered an adult gone to the school to become a firefighter, had advanced through the ranks and had retired years ago after being a fire investigator and chief. Ivano had been a young adult when he saw Chief Koski retire. Ivano was now an adult in his prime. And Kaagi was a young adult and had seen many babies, children and adults coming to the healers’ ward for treatment in the 85 years since his knighting when he was 22 years old. 5. Elderly Kaagi had sensed that Ivano was of his race or closely related when he was putting him under after that remarkable resistance and fear that the Jedi would draft him into their service. After the first guidance out of the sedation he knew that Ivano wanted to keep his ancestry and real age a secret for his colleagues at the fire station. For Chief Calistro the number one of his team was just one of the elderly firefighters a few years from his retirement. Ivano wanted to keep it that way because he had plans to go back to Moniron.
