    Star Wars: Episode V: Twilight of the Force II: A Father's Fate

    Vice-Chancellor Amedda?

    Chancellor Palpatine has been killed by Masters Windu and Skywalker. Execute Order 66.

    Yes, my Lord.


    [​IMG]

    That was thirty three years ago.

    The Era

    It was when Darth Tyranus was freshly dead, and the Republic was poised to be ascendant in the Outer Rim Sieges against the Confederacy of Independent Systems, that Darth Sidious, Chancellor of the Republic for thirteen years, put into place his ultimate plan to corrupt Anakin Skywalker, arrange the death of General Grievous and the consolidation the majority of the Separatist Council on Mustafar for one final decapitating blow.

    Everything was in place. The cadre of officers that espoused and formed a military bedrock to the next regime; the millions of clones loyal to the chain of command; the atmosphere of fear which had the galaxy begging for someone to restore order and peace.

    All that Sidious needed was an apprentice and he would turn the key.

    He failed.

    Amedda turned it for him.

    [​IMG]

    In a whirlwind of events, Sidious was killed, the Jedi Rebellion was defeated, and the Senate, freshly terrorised by the tragedy of the Clone Wars and the treachery of the Jedi, declared Acting Chancellor Mas Amedda the first Galactic Emperor.

    The Jedi Order, massacred across the galaxy by the clones they had once trusted, fled Imperial space, buoyed by the intervention of Master’s Windu and Skywalker in the attack on the Jedi Temple, who managed to stage a fighting retreat into the Coruscant under-city before the surviving Jedi managed to sneak off world with the help of Senators Amidala and Organa.

    The Jedi retreated to Naboo, where a heavily pregnant Amidala declared the Alliance to Restore the Republic, otherwise known as the Republic, triggering the formation of a small new government including Corellia, Caamas, Mon Calamari, Kashyyyk and Alderaan, and precipitating the withdrawal of the Empire from the Outer Rim to protect - or perhaps to hold hostage - world’s such as Coruscant, Kuat, Fondor, Eriadu, Kamino, Rothana, Bilbringi, Yaga Minor.

    The nascent Empire, the reborn Republic, the bloodied Confederacy; they found not a common enemy but a divide that could not be crossed with words or fought with war.

    A stalemate.

    The Confederacy was given a moment to lick its wounds, to rebuild its devastated homeworlds and purse world’s.

    The Republic and Jedi were given the chance to build their small but powerful government anew, to rid themselves of the rot cultivated by Palpatine, to find lost Jedi and save them, to hold a line against the darkness.

    The Empire had the opportunity to consolidate a regime of fear, settling with control of half the known galaxy, building a large military just as tied down keeping the peace as it was building for the next conflict.

    The Hutts, the Commonality, the Mandalorians, the Centrality, the Senex Lords, the Nouane, the Bothans - they declared their independence, a dozen political alignments large and small.

    The Galactic Cold War began.

    Anakin Skywalker, to the soft sadness of Yoda, to the grim censure of Mace, to the quiet disappointment of Obi-Wan, left the Jedi Order.

    [​IMG]

    He settled down with Padme and their young twins, the children kept safe, spending as much time with ‘uncle Bail’ on Alderaan as they did Anakin’s stepbrother and wife, Owen and Beru, on Tatooine. The Jedi Council, strained by the example set by the Chosen One, moved its academy to Ossus, but left representatives on Naboo to protect the Chancellor.

    The Senate remained a powerful entity within Mas Amedda’s Empire - who, even though he was able to secure the loyalty of the first Inquisitors and few Hands, was more reliant upon democracy to keep the peace, and thus Senators within the Republic were able to represent their systems in absentia, via hologram, though they numbered so few that Emperor Amedda’s veto could not be overridden - but the Senate as a whole could, and so power jockeys daily, and the Senate is more than capable of destroying a Moff’s career or enacting legislation - publicly, and loudly - which undermines the Empire.

    [​IMG]

    In the last few years, the line between the Republic and Empire has hardened, and as violent suppression’s occur on Ghorman, Mimban, and other Imperial worlds, the Jedi become more inclined to intervene, and the Confederacy is reported to finally have recovered its lost strength, more and more indications are suggesting that the status quo cannot last...

    The balance of power, held in the hands of amoral Senators.

    The Jedi, crippled, but rebuilding.

    The Force, not yet balanced, but holding its breath.

    The Emperor...

    ... with time on his side.

    Episode IV: Twilight of the Force: A Fathers Choice

    https://boards.theforce.net/threads...-a-father’s-legacy-game-is-now-over.50050594/

    To describe these events and do them justice would be impossible.

    So much has happened.

    So much has been lost.

    So much has been saved.

    The conflict between the Dark Man, Mas Amedda, Darth Wyyrlok - the secret apprentice of Darth’s Tenebrous, Plagueis and Sidious - and the rest of the galaxy destroyed Alderaan, devastated Coruscant, Mimban, Takodona, Kashyyyk, Chandrila, Naboo, and Mandalore, and brought to an end the Empire, Separatists and Mandalorian Death Watch.

    Many personalities died in the week-long conflict; the Galactic Civil War.

    Leia and Padme Skywalker; Bail and Breha Organa; Bel Iblis; Obi-Wan Kenobi; Lando Calrissian, Wedge Antilles and Maz Kanata; Ahsoka Tano; Yoda, Quinlan Vos, Depa Billaba, K'Kruhk; Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus; Shira Brie, many Dark Jedi, the reborn General Grievous, Galen Erso, Lyz and Arek Graul, Tarkin, Daala... even the slither of the ancient Sith God Typhojem held in the Mimban Kaiburr Crystal was lain low.

    So much was lost.

    It was a truly devastating war.

    Still the galaxy persisted in fighting back, at great personal cost to Feyna Organa and to Anakin and Luke Skywalker, and indeed saw Aryan Graul, Pascale Rouser and Darth Ananke - born Qir'a - branded as war criminals, though many of the few remaining neutral worlds choose not to enforce these edicts. Mandalore stood anew, reunified by Madelyn Linnett and Ka'rta, while the Jedi light was extinguished, leaving Mace Windu missing, confronted with the knowledge that he should have died at Palpatine's hands - knowledge bequeathed to him by a strange black-hooded man...

    But while many fell, Luke fell the most - becoming the Dark Lord of the Sith and slaying Mas Amedda even as the others defeated Director Krennic, who was in the midst of his attempt to seize control of the Empire and the galaxy itself. That attempt ended with the collapse of the Empire and Separatists, ushering in a wave of reconciliation and indeed, within days, a peaceful declaration of a New Republic.

    But in the shadows, Luke’s One Sith grow.

    And the edges of the galaxy, his father, shamed by his failures, went into exile, abandoning the galaxy to whatever will follow.

    Now

    Fourteen years have passed since the Heroes of the Galaxy, be they dark or light, saved the galaxy from the Dark Man and the Death Star. Time has been kind to some, and unkind to others. The New Republic has flourished, and has successfully negotiated clear borders and relationships with the Hutts, Imperial Remnant, Nouane and the Mandalorians. Much of the galaxy is now at peace, and indeed the New Republic has finally reached the very boundaries of the Unknown Regions in its pursuit of members.

    The peace has been underlined by the knowledge that permeates the galaxy.

    That Luke Skywalker fell to the dark side and is a wound, festering in the dark corners of the galaxy, intending to eventually return. Some, it is said, worship the possibility of his return; at the Beyond itself.

    That the War Criminals have not been found. Some, it is said, hide within the neutral worlds, behind their quiet refusal to enforce New Republic law.

    That Anakin Skywalker is still missing. Some, it is said, are looking for him, but none have found him.

    A small light has been lit anew by the Jedi Order, and the New Republic has gone from strength to strength, but as the Senate welcomes the controversial world of Bakura into its borders, a system which was the former Separatist capital and has been known to absorb unrepentant Imperials...

    The fate of the father will finally be questioned.

    The Beyond.

    The Veil.

    Otherspace.

    The Anti-Force.

    These are the words that fill our hearts with life; life that we have borrowed from the End of Time. The Son, the Final Dark Man, he waits, Beyond the Shadows.

    He allows us to live in the light, and for that, we should be grateful; for the curse of life can be ended by the True Dark Lord at any time He wishes. He is the Master of Masters; the Father of Shadow; the One and pure Truth.

    We labour to be worthy of his mercy; we pray for our demise to be quick; we Embrace that He will come and they will rise to stop him.

    The Heroes of the Galaxy are mere Protectors of His realm; their guardianship shall end when He returns; and He will return when we prove ourself worthy.

    When we have taken it all.

    All - for Him.

    - Extract from Volume One of the Black Holocron, a book discovered during a Security Force raid, interruoting a gathering of Acolytes of the Beyond, discovered in the underlevels of Coruscant.

    Character Sheet

    Name: Ka'rta

    Appearance: Short black hair with grey eyes, fair skin and facial features one could describe as pretty if they ever saw them, she usually wears her buy'ce (helmet), around 1.74 meters tall, though a slightly stockier build than most.

    Age: 34

    Homeworld: None born in space

    Personal equipment: Standard beskar'gam (Mandalorian armor) with a main color of dark red accented in gold, her family crest is on the right shoulder, three stars above a beskad (Mandalorian sword) with the family motto "Dar Solus" (No longer alone) written in the blade, has a white stripe that runs down the center of her chest. She has an assortment of weapons on her person, wrist mounted rocket launcher that can be fitted with different warheads, Jetpack with a concussion missile launcher in it, two Mandalorian style blaster pistols, one vibroblade in a sheath attached horizontally at the small of her back.

    Personal ship: Her ship is a TL-1800 called the “Hettyc Osik” (I’ll let you look that up)

    Faction: Independant (Mandalorian)

    The Force: No

    Bio: Ka'tra was born to two proud Mandalorian Warriors and bounty hunters, Kot and Ka’ra. they were declared dar'manda (Not Mandalorian) shortly after their verd'goten (Mandalorian right of passage). Cast out and abandoned, they found comfort with each other, forming their own nameless clan. When Ka’rta was born it was the happiest day in their life, their little clan had grown by one.

    She was raised as any Mando’ad would be, taught how to fight, and how to hunt. Even after her verd’goten Ka’tra stayed with her parents. One day they let her go on a mission alone, that’s when she killed her first being. When she commed her parents to pick her up, there was no answer, lost and alone on a foreign planet She did her best to survive, running into two former Republic Special Forces operators, that had become mercenaries. After a fight that ended in a draw they offered to help her search for her parents. After about a week they found their ship, empty, blood all over the deck. The scanners picked up several different DNA signatures, including her parents’. There was so much that the two mercenaries, Owen and Jerrod, said that her parents were dead. While not completely satisfied with that explanation, Ka’rta knew she couldn’t devote her whole life to the search, she needed money.

    For the next few years she worked with Owen and Jerrod as a small merc company, until she decided to go her own way. She still looks for her parents but, has found it takes second place to her work as a freelance merc.

    She took what she thought would be a routine mission on Mimban just open a way for the smugglers to get weapons to the natives fighting against the empire. That mission snowballed on her until she was facing an old god of the Sith. It made an offer to her, one of fantastic wealth if she stepped aside and let it possess a young woman whose only crime was being in the wrong place at the wrong time. She was injured, tired and angry so she lashed out at the creature, letting off bolt after bolt until is was pushed back.

    The young woman she'd saved suffered with amnesia and Ka'rta should have just let her go on her way and never think about her again. However she couldn't leave her, something in her heart was aching again, something she kept buried deep down.

    Their adventures led them, against Ka'rta's very loud objections, to Mandalore, to the place that had cast her out. She was battered, hurt and angry looking at the ruins of the Capitol. She snapped let all of her anger out on the idealistic woman that had dragged her out here, to the place she would most surely die, where they both would die.

    Somehow, someway, the survived, rallied the remaining Mandalorians and crushed the Seperatist Army, a short lived victory as the Empire came down to try and overtake and steal away the hard fought victory. That was ended at the point of a blaster.

    Peace, well peace by Mandalorian standards reigned under the new Manda'lor the same woman Ka'rta saved in that temple. Now the Mercenary is her right hand, the one that keeps the peace they both fought for. She feels less alone now. In the battlefield she found someone, someone to share her life with, someone to come home to. They never expected to survive, never expected to be together after the stress and fear of combat subsided.

    Yet they are still together, and are starting their own family. Something they never expected either.

    The woman that once had nothing, but a blaster and credits, now has everything. And she will fight just as hard if not harder to keep it. The time has not dulled her, or made her soft. She has fought for everything and will continue to struggle to keep it.

    Tor, their daughter is on the cusp of her own verd'goten, and it would be as a mandalorian recognized by the Manda'lor herself. Her daughter would not suffer the same fate as her.

    Name:
    Feyna Organa
    Photo: https://goo.gl/images/jf62Po (ignore pointy ears). Also has a thin, faded scar across her forehead.
    Age: 32
    Homeworld: Alderaan, now primarily lives on Coruscant.
    Personal equipment: Blaster and vibroblade (for self-defense only), datapad, personal comlink, formal wardrobe. Feyna almost always wears a chalcedony pin in the shape of the Alderaanian Royal Crest.
    Personal ship: CR70 Corellian Corvette Chalcedony Star

    https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/f/f3/CR70.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20060929071532
    Faction: New Republic—Senate; Current Chancellor
    The Force: No
    Bio: Feyna was born in Crevasse City on Alderaan in 18 BTA, and is the adopted daughter of the late Bail and Breha Organa.

    Feyna has no memory of her birth parents. According to the file at the orphanage, her mother was a teacher and her father worked in construction. Her mother contracted a terminal illness late in her pregnancy with Feyna, and died a few weeks after giving birth. Feyna’s father was killed in a work site accident less than a year later. With no other family, the child was taken into the local orphanage.

    As luck would have it, Bail and Breha Organa were making one of their regular tours of Crevasse City just a few months later, and the royal couple stopped at the orphanage to visit with the children there. Feyna, normally a shy child, climbed into Bail’s lap and fell asleep. They brought her home to the palace in Aldera a month later.

    With role models like her adoptive parents, Padme Amidala, and Mon Mothma, Feyna grew up knowing expectations were high. Nearly two decades into the Galactic Cold War, Feyna was being groomed to replace her father in the Galactic Senate, to allow Bail more time for his covert work with the growing Rebellion against Mas Amedda’s Empire.

    During Feyna’s first session as acting Senator, Mas Amedda surprised the galaxy by proposing a treaty between the Empire and Republic, to be negotiated at a peace summit on Alderaan. One hundred Imperial Senators were slated to attend, balancing out the one hundred Republic representatives, and even though many suspected the summit to be a trap, Feyna accepted Amedda’s proposal, and the Republic committed to the talks.

    Unbeknownst to the Republic, and most of the Empire, Amedda had been secretly overseeing the completion of the Death Star superweapon (as well as its Separatist counterpart, the Ultimate Weapon), and the proposed summit was a lure to draw the Republic leadership and any potential Imperial allies into one place, to eliminate them. Amedda destroyed Alderaan, but not before faking his own death and setting up Imperial Senator Aryan Graul to take the fall for the atrocity. Bail, Breha, Padme, Leia Skywalker, Mon Mothma, and billions more were killed instantly.

    Feyna herself barely survived the annihilation of her homeworld, having been on board the Republic flagship Home One at the moment of the attack, and only escaped death due to the intervention of Graul’s son, Arek. The only other Republic Senator to survive was Garm Bel Iblis of Corellia, who never arrived at the summit, but he was later killed when the Empire attacked Chandrila, and Feyna, by default, became acting Chancellor of the Republic.

    Alderaan’s destruction shattered the tense quiet of the Cold War, and plunged the galaxy into what became known as the Galactic Civil War, as the Empire, Rebellion, and Separatists fought against each other, and their respective leaders fought amongst themselves. Feyna clashed with Anakin Skywalker and Han Solo shortly before the Battle of Mandalore, and considering that both men subsequently disappeared, the argument remains one of her greater regrets.

    Against tremendous odds, the Republic won, and Feyna was soon properly elected Chancellor of the New Republic by the re-convened Senate, but with Zorn still loose somewhere in the galaxy, and with no Jedi to stand against him, Feyna feared it would only be a matter of time before the outbreak of another galactic conflict.

    In the mean time, she did what she could to ensure a lasting peace, as the New Republic continued to grow and flourish through the years, and the Jedi Order slowly rose out of the ashes. Feyna served two consecutive terms as Chancellor, but in 8 ATA, she declined the nomination to a third, and spent the next few years focusing on New Alderaan, in the Ash Worlds of the Outer Rim, where other survivors from her homeworld had begun to rebuild their lives.

    Feyna makes an annual journey to the asteroid field that used to be Alderaan, now called the Graveyard, and though the loss is…less painful, now, she is prone to occasional bouts of depression.

    In 12 ATA, after being encouraged by her friends and allies in the Senate to run again, she was re-elected Chancellor, and in 13 ATA, the Senate moved back to Coruscant, which, while still under reconstruction after the Galactic Civil War, is once again fit for habitation.

    She has been in a long-term relationship with Prince Isolder of Hapes. He became something of a fixture in her life in the early days of the New Republic, and at first Feyna found his constant presence a bit of an annoyance, but he grew on her over time. She managed to hold him off for much of her Chancellorship, claiming to be too busy for a relationship, and hoping to spare them both from gossip and any political pressure that would arise from such a relationship, but finally gave in not long after leaving office, and in 9 ATA, their courtship became public knowledge. Feyna loves Isolder, but the notorious hostilities within the Hapan nobility—which can literally extend to the point of killing each other—have led to a lot of hestitation on Feyna’s part, and the two remain unmarried.

    Name: Pascale Rouser

    Photo: [​IMG]

    Age: 56

    Homeworld: Commenor

    Personal equipment: Small hold out blaster, thermal detonators, vibroblades

    Personal ship: Firenze, Baudo class star yacht (previous yacht Fortuna destroyed)

    Faction: Independent (archeologist/mercenary, former Underlord of Black Sun)

    The Force: An Echo

    Bio: Born to a wealthy brandy making family in Chasin City, the largest city of Commenor, Pascale grew up admiring the galaxy’s most famous archaeologists and aspired to be one of the greatest in the galaxy himself and so he enrolled in the University of Commenor where he began his studies.

    During a work experience archeological dig, Pascale discovered he had a taste for capturing artefacts but also decided he wanted to make some money for himself. So he decided to sell these priceless artifacts off, damaging the reputation of one of the archaeologists on the dig. Thus began his descent into the underworld of smuggling as he made some contacts with black market dealers. Returning to the University, he plagiarized an essay from one of his fellow students, but unable to prove he did steal it, he was awarded the Archeological Prize.

    His family name and wealth got him a job at a prestigious museum where he became assistant curator. However his job didn't last long as he became a suspect in the funding of a grave robbing expedition which caused the deaths of several of his fellow employees and a Coruscanti archaeologist. With his dreams in tatters and fired, Pascale decided to become a mercenary and smuggler for hire for whomever could afford him.

    His skills in acquiring artefacts and treasures for several criminal gangs and underlords made him a household name in smuggling and mercenary work and made him several enemies and rivalries which he relished with a passion. He has been hired by Black Sun who have been impressed with his work and have offered him the most amount of money to undertake contracts.

    Pascale was sent to Mimban along with half of the galaxy’s underworld. The mission: to retrieve a kyber crystal from a temple on the planet and to get there first before anyone else. Rouser got into trouble thanks to a rude Imperial Captain but was thankfully saved by Han Solo and the Millenium Falcon. Han and the Falcon saved him again whilst flying towards the temple’s location, protecting him from some TIE Strikers that had come after himself and the Falcon.

    After arriving at the cave leading to the Temple he and Han were confronted by a Hssiss dragon. After defeating the beast Pascale arrived at the Temple itself. However, there were also two more competing parties for the crystal Ka’tra the Mandalorian and two Jedi including the Padawan Linnett. Entering the Temple Pascale was given three paths to choose in order to grab the crystal. He chose poorly.

    A dark entity consumed him and he proceeded to try and kill the others. Thanks to Halle, a Coway woman she used the crystals power to heal him, but the entity stayed with him, and it was an experience that Pascale was not likely to ever forget. Two MagnaGuards dispatched from General Grievous arrived to attack the group but the entity helped out by showing a glowing glyph that indicated an exit. However it came at a cost, the Padawan Linnett was stripped of the Force and became an amnesiac. Rouser was also anointed the shadow by the being known as the Father.

    Whilst trying to leave Mimban in order to bring the crystal to a safe place, the Ultimate Weapon arrived and the entity helped once again by providing a route the group they could use as an exit. However the Separatists came up with an offer that Pascale could not refuse: grab the crystal and become Underlord and Dark Prince of Black Sun. He accepted and made his way finally off Mimban and on to the next stop :Takodana.

    However at Takodana Pascale’s true allegiance to Black Sun was revealed, however nobody knew he was now the new Underlord. A plan was eventually formulated, whilst Ka’tra and Linnett headed to Mandalore on a mission, Pascale, Han, Maz Kanata, Lando Calrissian and others, including a group of Rebels would defend Maz’s castle when the Separatists and the Ultimate Weapon arrived. Eventually himself and Han would lead the Separatists on a merry chase around the galaxy eventually arriving on Mandalore, luring it into a trap.

    The Battle of Takodana began with the Separatists arriving but no Ultimate Weapon. Pascale directed the Separatists to where the crystal was, but he also had a plan in place to track it with Boba Fett the legendary bounty hunter now on the Black Sun payroll. Fett cornered Pascale, Lando and Han to try and grab the crystal which was in the possession of Solo, however complications arose when the Dark Lady Qi’ra arrived as well as Princess Feyna Organa and Aryan Graul’s son and a firefight ensued.

    Unfortunately Rouser’s yacht Fortuna was damaged by Qi’ra and he feared for his life when the Dark Lady tried to Force choke him. However the entity, after a short time away managed to save him from death. The beast saved him again when Wedge Antillies X wing crashed into the planet sending him flying and wrecking his yacht. Solo escaped on the Rebels ship with the crystal with Qi’ra giving chase. The Separatists dispatched a shuttle to pick him up with Pascale having an internal discussion with the beast as to their next moves.

    He was eventually brought to the Ultimate Weapon to meet the Dark Man, the person who had been orchestrating events in the galaxy. The beast was forcibly removed from Pascale and Rouser learned the truth: he had died at the Temple at Mimban and had been used by the beast as a host, his spirit still contained within. He was brought back to life and then the Dark Man revealed himself: Mas Amedda the former Chancellor but now he was a Sith, Darth Wyrrrlok.

    Pascale also found out that he had an Echo of the Force inside him, and he managed to unleash it against Amedda and escaped using a Baudo class yacht he had been given as a present from the Dark Lord. Christening the yacht Firenze he managed to escape into hyperspace, but unfortunately not escaping taking a hit which damaged the hyperdrive.

    After reading through some Sith artefacts the Dark Lord had left on board, Rouser drunk himself into a stupor and knew that he was possibly going to die. However a nudge from the Echo managed to bring Pascale out of his stupor and directed him to a planet in the unknown: Ach To.

    There he became involved in a showdown with an entity that was related to the beast that had used him as a host. With the help of Jedi Master Mace Windu they defeated the entity which had taken the body of former Jedi Ahsoka Tano. She was defeated by Windu who wielded the legendary Dagger of Mortis.

    After falling into a cave created by the Force trying to rip the planet apart he once again saw Qi'ra, but also greeted for the first time Aryan Graul, the former Emperor of the Galactic Empire. A cloaked figure then appeared, and explained that he had changed the timeline, that he had messed essentially with their lives but before he could explain more, Qi’ra and Aryan fought over the Dagger of Mortis transporting Pascale back to his ship. Boarding Firenze once again Pascale was giving a choice of destinations by the mysterious cloaked man, out of them all Pascale chose the library world of Nouane.

    No longer Underlord of Black Sun and designated a war criminal by the New Republic Pascale decided to lay low on Nouane but still took odd jobs for the underworld and other factions to keep himself in the game. He also decided to embrace his Echo and concentrate on his studies of the Force, but Pascale was not one to be trained by a Master, he became his own one. This would give him that much needed edge against his competitors and hopefully stop anyone from trying to outsmart him.

    The libraries and University in Nouane City became his home and it was there that he finally found the woman of his dreams, someone he could settle down with. This was paradise.

    But now after 14 years away, it is time for Pascale to step back into the galaxy once again.

    The next adventures of the intrepid archeologist are about to begin….

    Homeworld:

    Personal Equipment:
    A280-CFE rifle, holdout pistol, flash grenades, detonite charges, survival kit, binoculars, basic armor and military-style uniform

    Personal Ship:

    Faction:
    New Republic: Military (former)

    The Force:
    Sensitive. No training, but once dreamed of being a Jedi.

    Bio:
    Gil Fortis grew up among many brothers on Corellia, but left once he was old enough to join the military. For him, staying home was never an option, and he felt compelled to see what lied beyond the sky’s end. After hearing about the fighting and destruction caused by the Empire, he went straight to the nearest recruiter and joined the Republic.

    Growing up on Corellia had always put him close to and in nature, which was his way to get away from the shipyards and busy ports that made the planet famous. This affinity for wilder land made him a perfect candidate for the Republic’s scouting needs, and he soon found himself moving ahead of platoons with a rifle in hand to relay intel back to commanders. His ability to stay unseen aided him in staying alive throughout his tours, but he found that he preferred working alone or in small groups due to the danger that large parties could attract.

    Toward the end of the Civil War, Gil was caught in a firefight on Chandrila while in a security role. On one side, he and his squad, the other, an underworld gang sporting equipment seized from a lost munition shipment. During the firefight, Gil was struck by a bolt from a heavy blaster while attempting to flank entrenched combatants. His squad successfully pushed out the gang, his team took heavy losses, and he was forced to recover and remove himself from the front lines.

    Once the war ended, and peace settled in, Gil left the military and began serving as personal security for the State and others willing to pay for protection. While none of his clients have been particularly high-up, he has been content to make sure the people are kept safe.

    [​IMG]
    Age: 34
    Homeworld: Kashyyyk
    Personal equipment: Blue lightsaber, grey and white robes
    Personal ship: Rogue Shadow
    Faction: None (but certainly nothing that comes close to the Empire)
    The Force: Yes - Senior Master (more because of raw affinity than training)
    Bio:

    Galen's mother died in Order 66, but his father survived the attack of his clone trooper squad on Kashyyyk protecting his son.

    For reasons Galen never fully understood his father Kento did not return to the Jedi Order, but instead stayed on Kashyyyk. In secrecy he trained his son who was exceptionally gifted in the ways of the force and showed a tremendous gift for everything that included invoking the kinetic might of the force. Galen grew restless though as he grew and wanted to test his abilities in the galaxy of there. He wanted to fight the Empire that had killed his mother. He wanted to join the Jedi, who he knew only from the few flaws his father had shared.

    The attack on Kashyyyk changed all that. An army of Battle droids ascended on the planet and after it came a rain of fire and death. His father died that day, burned by the planetary bombardment. He left Galen alone. But he also left him with a purpose.

    Revenge for his father's death.

    He was denied that revenge, as the man responsible for the bombardment was slain by another. But he quickly learned of the existence of the Sith, a force of evil who ultimately were behind the death of both his parents.

    He swore to end these Sith, no matter what the cost. But even as the new Dark Lord of the Sith announced himself, he never appeared again and Galen began instead honing his skills by hunting the next best thing ... he relentlessly hunted down every last remnant of the Empire that had served the murderer of his father. In one of his many raids he acquired the Rogue Shadow, a personal transport he used ever since then. Eventually this grew tiresome though. Faceless goons of a long gone organisation did not satisfy his thirst for vengeance.

    He stayed away from the Jedi for all those years knowing they would not approve his purpose. Also he stayed clear of the New Republic mostly as he did not wanted his actions to be associated with a government struggling to create a better galaxy. Instead he remained and in the shadows and looked for any hint of the Sith and their Dark Lord Zorn. Jedi tried to locate him, but with over decade of experience and his training he has avoided them every time.

    For many years his attempts to find the Sith had been unfruitful. Some minor collectors of artifacts and backwater planet cultists. Until he finally encountered a young woman on a remote planet outpost. She was well trained in the ways of the force and searched for a man called Skywalker. Anakin Skywalker. The man the Dark Lord demanded to be handed over to him. Rumors had it this was his father. Galen faced this woman who indeed revealed herself to be a Sith. He defeated her, but she forced him to kill her and took the secret of her Master to the grave.

    Nevertheless he now understood the Sith were indeed out there and they were looking for something. Or someone. So he began looking for the same. Anakin Skywalker, a legendary Jedi Warrior. Because if he found Skywalker he found the Sith and would finally have a chance to kill their Dark Lord and end their reign of terror before it began.

    Since then he has found at least one more Sith, a powerful warrior he fought and killed on Vjun. Again the man left no clue to the whereabouts of his Master. Yet, Galen felt he was on the right track.

    He was hunting the hunters and finally he was getting close.

    Name: Darth Zorn, formerly known as Luke Skywalker
    Photo
    :
    [​IMG]
    Age: 32
    Homeworld: Naboo
    Personal equipment: Lightsaber (he created it himself - red blade)
    Personal Ship: Sith Intruder (Darth Maul's former ship)
    Faction: Sith
    The Force: Yes - Grandmaster
    Bio: Being the child of two living legends is a life not many have. Really not comparable to ... being a farmboy or something.

    Luke was raised and trained in both the force and politics by the founder of the Republic (his mother) and the Chosen One (his father). He excelled in both fields, much like his beloved twin sister Leia did.

    But it is a life undeniably in the shadow of your parents that he lived. That ended the day Alderaan exploded and two Dark Jedi attacked him on Naboo. He tasted fear, despair and power that day. Hatred was born. He killed. For the first time he killed. Enemies. Friends. Everything in his way.

    A vision was born this day. Luke Skywalker understood it was him who had the power to force change onto the Galaxy.

    Then Darth Maul found him, the lost Sith Lord and abandoned apprentice of Darth Sidious. The really last Sith to have a reasonable claim on the title and yet a broken man. Luke's training began. He was brought to Korriban. His trials began there, too. A path to understanding. A path to enlightenment. A path to ascendancy. A path of suffering and a string of violent encounters.

    He murdered Obi-Wan Kenobi, Krayt, Wyyrlock and his own master. He unearthed XoXaans ancient secrets and entered into the unholy embrace with the Dark Side. But all of this was only preparation. Because he knew he was meant to be more ... he was meant to be the Sith'ari. The Chosen One. The final Sith. The harbinger of an eternal peace.

    The path to ascension became clearer. Soon he began to see the patterns in the force. Krayt had been meant to create a new and pure Sith Order and by killing him Luke took this destiny. By killing Maul he truly became Darth Zorn, the Dark Lord of the Sith. By killing Obi-Wan Kenobi he overcame the weakness impersonated by his old self, Luke Skywalker. By killing Wyyrlock he became the champion of darkness. But the Chosen One he would only become by killing the Chosen One and steal his destiny. He had to destroy his father. Only then he would become more than a Sith. More than a man!

    Anakin Skywalker denied him this final step though. Before Darth Zorn was ready, he vanished. 14 years he has been hiding. 14 years he has not shown himself. 14 years Zorn has searched both the Galaxy and force for him.

    Darth Zorn has used those years to prepare though. He has grown powerful beyond any Sith before him. He studied the teachings of old and modern Sith, learned all knowledge his Holocron Master XoXaan had to offer, he hunted down rivals for sport and has created a new Order of the Sith, ruled by one. Him. The Rule of One. The One Sith. The true Dark Lord of the Sith and an order that is the extension of his will.

    The irony does not escape him that his powerful blood might have made him the most powerful Sith, yet he remains incomplete. Only the death of his father will allow him to truly rise above his failed predecessors.

    So he has prepared. He became aware of the need to lure his father out into the open. 14 years he has prepared to do so.

    Soon he would return. The Galaxy had long enough been slumbering. It was time it woke up and was bathed in fire. A fire so bright not even his father could ignore it.

    Name: Tor

    Description: Short dark brown hair with dark brown eyes. Is a little tall and gangly for her age, hasn't quite grown into her body yet. Her skin is tanned having spent some time out in the mandalorian sun. She has strength beyond her years, her mother's training being harsh and pulling no punches. Though she has a few small scars from some youthful misadventures.
    [​IMG]

    Age: 12 (nearly 13)

    Homeworld: Mandalore

    Personal equipment: Light armor, and a light blaster pistol and rifle, not full Beskar'gam, but would stand up to some hard hits. She had a knife that she keeps in a sheath in the small of her back, just like her mom.

    Personal ship: None

    Faction: Mandalorian

    The Force: No

    Bio: The daughter of a woman that never expected to survive, that never expected to have a family. Tor was loved, but also not coddled. Ka'rta raised her like a warrior, starting with small things, some light weapons training, a little blaster shooting, getting her fitted for some armor. Soon it became more and more, hand-to-hand combat, hunting tactics, and training with bounty hunting equipment. Some might have disagreed with how she raised her child but she knew how dangerous this galaxy was and that she would need to be ready for them. There was also the fact that she had inherited her mother's rage and anger. No better place to put that anger than into training and preparing for the Galaxy that would chew you up and spit you out was always good.

    As she grew up she found herself playing with Leia and Alfred, being a sort of big sister to them given that their mothers were so close. She took on the role of protector, and defender of them at times.

    She is now on the cusp of undertaking her verd'goten something her mother has been preparing her for years. She is excited for this ready to take the next step to become a Mandalorian.

    Upgraded Military Grade Shielding
    Experimental Stealth Unit
    Class 0.5 Hyperdrive (Class 2 Backup Hyperdrive)

    Faction: Independent
    The Force: Yes, Master level

    Personality:
    Often seen as cold and calculating. He is not a “people person”. He has a strict code and does not tolerate foolishness when he works. Once upon a time he could appreciate humor and could joke if necessary to blend in but preferred to stand alone. Since that day 33 years ago, he is a crazed, driven, almost force of destruction, wreaking decimation wherever he goes.

    Bio:
    Bernael was born on Anzat as all Anzati are. He was trained during his first two centuries, the youth of an Anzat, to be a hunter of any being by his sire. He respected both his sire and grandsire as he was raised on the stories of them associating with some of the greatest Sith, such as Exar Kun. His sire had trained in the double bladed Form of Jar Kai while in the company of Exar Kun.

    When Bernael left at a young age to travel the galaxy and hunt he chose his given name to blend in with other races. While out and hunting he began to realize that much of the truth or learning that had been passed of his species had either disappeared entirely from the galaxy or had been spun into myth and legend. In some ways this made it easier to survive as all Anzati do by draining life essence and “luck” or “soup”, also known as the mind and force essence. Because of his nature he quickly learned he had to move from planet to planet as once found out most societies would willingly scorch their own planet to destroy him.

    At one time, during a hunt he was discovered by a Sith assassin, named Darth Kwaad, while in the process of draining said assassin’s apprentice. He fought the Sith to a standstill before agreeing to become his new apprentice to learn his Sith arts. On a mission his master perished and he continued across the galaxy seeking out more Force users to drain. During his studies under the assassin he learned that the best meals were Force users and that doing so increased his own strength in the Force.

    For many of the following centuries he was an emissary, an agent if you will, of the balance, ensuring that neither Light nor Dark took prominence. In relatively recent history he had worked to ensure the rise of the Dark Side so that the balance returned, the Rule of Two had been a necessary evil when he’d worked to have it enacted but over the next thousand years he’d regretted being part of what caused such an imbalance.

    In the 200 years prior to the ascendancy of Palpatine, Bernael had been guided by the Presence to ensure the light did not falter as the Dark reemerged and grew in strength. He had to work subtly and discreetly, occasionally assisting the Dark but most often working with the Light to keep the balance. As time went by, however, he saw that those who were charged with guarding the Light had become too static, to drawn into their rituals and the mysticism of their order. The period of the Clone Wars and what occurred then truly unsettled the balance, too many of those in the Light began skirting the darkness and as such he retreated from the galaxy.

    And then Paplatine was assassinated and Order 66 enacted. The ascendancy of the Dark, without its guiding light was complete and almost all of the Light had gone out of the galaxy. All the centuries of work, the many years of solitude, the need to be such a being that was needed and disliked, kept at a distance by both sides crashed down on him. In a relative eye-blink everything he was, all he worked toward mutated as the Presence itself, the balance, went wild, completely turbulent. What emerged was no longer the balance seeking, mostly stoic Anzat but rather a true child of Cold Danda Sine. The balance itself had warped completely in the time of its initial madness and as it reconnected with Bernael the Dark Side flowed into him, claiming him as its own, changing him to become it’s living avatar.

    It has now been 33 years since that time, since he changed, since he disappeared. And now the New Republic has received word that the Farlax Sector, not just one world or a cluster, but the entire sector has gone dark. Coincidence?

    Name: Qwi Xux
    Photo:[​IMG]

    Age: 25
    Homeworld: Omwat
    Personal equipment: Plenty of books on science subjects, research papers, datapads, blaster pistol
    Personal ship: None ( does not have a ship of her own yet, if does travel will usually travel on Pascale's yacht)
    Faction: Independent (Science lecturer and graduate, Nouane City University, girlfriend to Pascale Rouser)
    The Force: No

    Bio: Being an Omwati, Qwi Xux was always destined for greatness.

    Omwati were known for their aptitude in science, engineering, art and music and with the proper training could retain data than most species. Qwi was born in a world where resources were used sparingly in order to enhance the Omwati's knowledge of their species. Qwi decided at a young age that she wanted to focus on the science and engineering aspects and even in a girl so young she excelled in physics, mathematics and engineering. But then the Empire arrived…

    At the age of ten Qwi and nine others were taken from their villages and brought onto a space station on the orders of one Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin. There she was subjected to rigorous education, mental testing and mental challenges. If any of them failed they would be executed and watch as their village was razed to the ground. This drove Qwi into making sure that she completed the tests to the highest standard and to drive her to complete problems. She greatly feared failure because she knew what would happen. Qwi was the only one to survive out of the ten who arrived.

    What she never knew was that her experiments and research would help in building the ultimate weapon for Tarkin: the Death Star and the research was also used to create the Separatists Ultimate Weapon. She always believed that it was all being used for innocent purposes and she would never be told the truth.

    After the torturous trials were over she returned home but she was always thirsty for more knowledge, more problems to be solved. She excelled in school and higher education and set her sights next on university. After all that happened on the space station orbiting her home world she craved success and perhaps one day to work with the Empire.

    Nouane City University came highly recommended, it was a neutral world but the planet was known for its high education standards, and was considered one of the greatest knowledge hotspots in the galaxy. She was accepted and started her studies in her late teenage years.

    Qwi aced her studies and was always considered to be the most intelligent and hard working in the class. She graduated with honours and she set her sights on teaching bringing something back to the university that made her feel at home. And she never revealed her suspicions about her earlier research to anyone, but she wanted to atone for what she felt she had done in the past. During this time the Empire fell and was replaced by the New Republic. Qwi secretly had sympathised with the Empire because of her childhood, but she felt unsettled in a galaxy that was bouncing back from war.

    It was there that she met the man who would become her partner, Doctor Pascale Rouser, archeologist and war criminal. She had not been looking for love but that fateful day in the library she couldn't even dream of what would happen next. Eventually they started going out and instead of concentrating on planning on her lessons she was more interested in dates and romantic trysts.

    He listened to her talk science and engineering, she listened to his adventures. And she fell in love with this man who was nearly double her age, but was willing to listen, help out if he could and loved her like she was special. And she reciprocated his feelings feeling as safe as she could ever be.

    Eventually over time Qwi moved in with him, and she was happy and content. Pascale made sure that she did not worry after anything, money, books, anything she wanted. Through the years she continued teaching whilst Pascale took odd jobs in and around the Nouane system. She missed him greatly during these trips and she worried that one day he would end up getting himself hurt. But he always returned and it was always worth the wait.

    Her partner however was getting restless and wanting to return to the galaxy at large, she was quite happy and settled on the quiet world of Nouane but she knew if you wanted to get success you have to get yourself out there. And perhaps she could be employed by some of the greatests scientific minds in the galaxy.

    Pascale had been honest from the beginning and told her he had been branded a war criminal and what he had been through during the war. However she had not revealed her childhood and what had happened there. Nor had she told him her suspicion: that her research had helped build both superweapons and that Alderaan had been destroyed because of it.

    This secret was haunting her, but she would stay by her partners side until the end. Now she, like Pascale wants to head out into the wider galaxy, to take part in his adventures and perhaps make herself known on the galactic stage.

    However the secret she holds could end up with both of them in danger and could not only spell trouble for her relationship, but could doom the whole galaxy…

    Age: 59
    Homeworld: Tatooine
    Personal equipment: Lightsaber (blue), various equipment available including a personal ship, the Twin Sun
    Personal ship: Twin Sun, heavily modified courier ship
    Faction: None
    The Force: Yes - Grand Master
    Bio: Anakin Skywalker, the legend, the Chosen One, the Jedi Hero, left the Jedi Order in the days after the Clone Wars and settled down with Padme, his wife, and their two children on Naboo. The disappointment of his Masters was great, but Anakin had felt the Dark Side and he knew he carried more of it in his heart than any man of his power should. He never talked about it, but truly the revelation of the true nature of the man he had once called friend as a Sith Lord had shaken his infamous confidence to the core. The act of killing him had also broken his heart and equally damaged his believe in the Jedi way. He truly understood the prophecy and finally realized the price it would demand from the Galaxy. It was more than a defeat, it was an age old struggle for balance that demanded millions of lives.

    He wanted to be no more part of this. Quite the contrary, he retreated from all Jedi activity and supported the greatest believer in peace he knew ...his wife. A woman much wiser than he was. In his view the Jedi had failed to be the beacon of hope they should be. He personally had failed. It was Padme and her Republic that took up this torch and he was certain it was the will of the force for her to succeed.

    Their children Luke and Leia would help with it. Eventually he would have had them trained by his old friend Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    Then things turned out differently.

    Alderaan happened.

    A peace negotiation that became a genocide and the death of Leia and Padme. Only with the help of his friend Obi-Wan he himself was kept from falling to the dark side and take revenge. On Coruscant they dueled and Obi-Wan Kenobi managed to break through to him. But while he fought his own anger, his son lost his battle. He fell to the dark side. Guided by Lord Sidious final living apprentice he left the Rebellion and his father behind to become a Sith. Obi-Wan Kenobi followed him to save Luke, but was slain by the boy.

    Anakin felt lost. The Rebellion did not wanted to have him and Feyna Organa deeply mistrusted him, the weak Emperor Graul did not even talk to him and abandoned his son instead. He was not Emperor for much longer afterwards. The new Emperor Wyyrlock offered a deal of Anakin's exile for the denial of using his super-weapon. Anakin had decided to go to exile anyway and accepted, leaving the Rebellion to fight alone. He had met a man called Han Solo there who had almost become a friend in their short time together. He too left the Rebellion behind. Wyyrlock did not fulfill the pact for one day, before Luke did what Anakin had not. He ended the short reign of the Chagrian. Darkness had chosen it's champion. The one champion Anakin was not willing to fight.

    He withdrew, as promised ... leaving behind the Galaxy that had not wanted him ... and denied his son the one thing the boy wanted more than anything. The duel with his own father.

    For 14 years he has existed in absolute solitary and has barely touched the force in that time. The last message the spirit of his old Master gave him that the Rebellion had ... somehow accidentially ... won. Anakin had not been needed after all.

    He remained in hiding and hoped to eventually be forgotten. A legend and historical figure so detached from galactic business, nobody considered him real.

    Bio: Aryan was born on Nubia as the only child to Norin and Ashaiya Graul. His parents were the proprietors of a rather large mining corporation and shipping company, which included several bronzium processing plants in the capital region of Rordis. As the sole heir, Aryan would one day have a stake in the company for his namesake alone, but his dreams and aspirations remained elsewhere...among the stars.

    While he abided by his father’s wishes and enrolled at the University of Coruscant after completing secondary school, he was again tempted by his passions and joined the Republic Navy to become a pilot shortly after graduation.

    His military career was littered with excellence, and he eventually rose to the rank of Commander, becoming a hometown hero in the process. With each passing achievement, he became more and more convinced that a career as a fully commissioned officer was the way to go, but that all came to a crashing end when he was seriously wounded in a scuffle in the Mid Rim. His injuries were extensive enough that he ended up losing his left leg, and he was medically retired from the military at the age of 28.

    During his tenure in the Navy, he met his wife, Lyzia Eross; the two were married in 20 BTA, with their only son, Arek, being born three years later. It was Lyzia who served as Aryan’s lifeline and moral support during the intervening months following his injury. As a philanthropist, she actively traveled around to various worlds stricken by the war to offer assistance and provide for those people in need. She also held rallies on notable Republic worlds to garner support for her cause. Aryan often accompanied her, and it was soon discovered that he had a real knack for interacting with the public and charming a crowd. His speeches were often engaging, and he soon gained the attention of a prominent politician working within the Imperial Senate – Garrit Pilleu, a member of the Nubian Ruling Council and aide to the current Senator of Nubia.

    The bureaucrat was infatuated by the young man’s passion and took him under his wing to help him learn the ropes. With Pilleu’s help, Aryan’s influence over the people remained strong. When the time was right, it was the old man who ultimately pushed Graul to seek elected office in the Senate, where he felt he would have the most impact. Against all odds, and helped along by a sympathy vote due to his injury, Aryan won the election by a landslide and became the next Senator of Nubia in 9 BTA. He viewed the outcome as some kind of epiphany; he was their savior, and anything less than that was simply unacceptable. It was a dangerous thought that would slowly begin to consume his mind.

    In fact, it wasn’t long before he became a victim of his own machinations. While he adopted a public mask that kept him quite favorable to the people – he was considered a charismatic and attractive politician – he continued to obsess over the government and his quest to obtain the kind of influence he needed to become the savior he envisioned himself to be.

    Aryan spent the following 9 years building clout and networking among his peers and beyond to establish long-standing connections. He even gained several big-name proponents in the Republic Senate, which quickly pushed him into the limelight with his idea for a unified government. He had become the Senate’s newest ‘superstar,’ and he basked in the glory; he was one step closer to his goal – ultimate rule as the galaxy’s next leader.

    Despite his lofty aspirations, he remained completely oblivious to the fact that his pursuit of power was slowly corrupting him and turning him into a monster. This would certainly come to the forefront in 0 BTA when Emperor Amedda unexpectantly called for peace between the Republic and Imperial factions; he wanted to put an end to the decades-long Cold War and restore the galaxy to its former glory. The Senate approved this proposal and swiftly moved forward to conduct peace talks on Alderaan.

    Aryan, recognizing this moment as an opportunity to get ahead, took the initiative and led the delegation alongside Chancellor Mon Mothma, Senator Bail Organa, and Princess Feyna of Alderaan. As the chairman of the Peace Committee, it was his responsibility to organize everything from the Imperial side of the table, gaining plenty of traction in the process.

    But unfortunately, it would not be a smooth transition. After a Dark Jedi resistance cell launched an attack against the peace delegation by targeting its three main theaters on Alderaan, Naboo, and Coruscant, the galaxy lost its leader when Emperor Amedda was mortally wounded. This cleared a pathway for Aryan to rise to the top. In his last moments, the dying Emperor left behind a decree that named Senator Graul as the next Galactic Emperor. He had finally achieved his goal, but it would not be a prosperous reign. In fact, despite his best efforts, it would be relatively brief.

    The coming days revealed a cunning plot set in motion by Amedda himself – now very much alive and calling himself Darth Wyyrlok. He had deceived the Senate by luring them unknowingly into a trap on Alderaan through the peace talks. From here, he proceeded to demonstrate the full might of the Galactic Empire by destroying the planet with a monstrous superweapon called the Death Star, which would later have a twin nicknamed the Ultimate Weapon.

    Caught in the chaos that ensued in the wake of this atrocity, Aryan became the brunt of scrutiny when Amedda set him up to take the blame for Alderaan’s destruction. Public opinion turned against him and things soon turned disastrous – Darth Ananke forced him into a detrimental partnership with her underworld associates; his son, first believed to have perished at Alderaan, became the victim of kidnappers and disappeared; his wife betrayed him and issued orders on his behalf to invade unsuspecting systems throughout the Empire, including Chandrila, Naboo, and Mandalore; the Admiralty and regional governors became divided and refused to acknowledge him; the remnants of the Republic began applying pressure to end the war.

    However, things took a turn for the worst when Darth Wyyrlok addressed the galaxy via the HoloNet and openly accused Aryan of murdering his Chief of Staff. He did not attempt to deny the allegation and decided to flee into the Unknown Regions; all was lost.

    It was difficult to say what had transpired after he fled, or where he had gone; Aryan refused to talk about it. When he arrived on Bakura a few days later to take refuge after being labeled a war criminal, he was a changed man in more ways than one. He had lost his wife and son at the hands of Darth Ananke, but through a series of strange circumstances, he had gained something more – the ability to touch the Force. The ‘echo’ had always been there; it had only been a matter of time before he discovered this special gift. It was a terrible form of restitution in exchange for his family, but he remained determined to make the most of his new reality. This led him to An’ya Kuro, a former Jedi Knight who agreed to take him under her wing and train him in the ways of the Force.

    Aryan spent the next fourteen years on Bakura, studying, training, and strengthening his skills in the Force. He became quite adept with his new powers and rose to the rank of a Jedi Knight. But fate would once again come calling. When Bakura broke their traditional stance to remain independent and decided to join the fledgling New Republic, they needed a leader to represent them in the Galactic Senate. Aryan saw this as an opportunity to regain some of his former glory and immediately stepped up to the challenge.

    It was a long and tiring campaign, but Aryan ultimately secured the nomination and went on to win the election. He became Bakura’s new Senator, though the decision did not come without controversy. While this would mark the first time Aryan had appeared in the public eye since the Galactic Civil War, the past was not so easily forgotten. To many throughout the galaxy, he was still a war criminal responsible for untold crimes against the Republic itself. Some even believed that by electing such a divisive figure, the Bakurian government was making a statement about their true feelings about joining the New Republic.

    Either way, Aryan found himself fighting an uphill battle to prove himself. That did not weaken his resolve, however. He only wanted to re-establish himself on Coruscant and make amends for all of the sins he had committed. For Aryan Graul, this was a second chance.

    In 12 ATA, Aryan became acquainted with a fellow Bakurian bureaucrat – Gaeriel Captison. She was a member of an influential political family and held a lot of clout in the main government circles. It was only natural that the two would become close colleagues, though no one could anticipate that things would develop beyond that. They soon entered into a formal relationship and their love for each other flourished.

    They are still together 2 years later, and while their bond has remained strong, it hasn’t always been an easy journey. When their courtship became public knowledge just prior to the campaign, they fell under a lot of scrutiny and were the subject of gossip on all the major media outlets. For one, many criticized them for the staggering age gap between them and made judgments based on Aryan’s past indiscretions – they referred to Gaeriel as a ‘trophy girlfriend’ and questioned their motivations.

    Nevertheless, they persevered and grew stronger through their efforts. They now journey to Coruscant, along with Aryan’s retinue, to begin a new chapter together.
