    Prologue: Prophecy of the Rough Beast


    The Prophecy of the Rough One

    There shall come a time in the galaxy

    When the imbalance in the force

    Shall become far too great

    And the Rough Beast shall awake

    From beyond the Hyperspace Barrier

    The Beast shall come, sailing the Ship of the Dead

    The force shall scream his coming

    But none shall hear it

    Light too dogmatic, blind to there own faults, and the dark focused upon there plots

    War shall rage between flesh and metal

    Light and dark once more clashing

    And the hearts and stars growing cold

    The Rough Beast shall be immune to light and dark

    And shall slaughter all in his path

    His hatred of the Force unmatched

    For three years the war will rage

    And from its end shall come

    An empire of true darkness

    And the galaxy will burn

    The Rough Beast will watch the dark empire

    And watches as it will fall

    Even when the puppetmaster

    Is given his rightful death

    The fire will continue to rage

    And as planets and systems die

    The Rough Beast shall laugh

    For he had never need lift a finger

    To see the galaxy die

    Common version of the Rough Beast Prophecy


    Author notes

    this is my first star wars fic, and my first post on this site. it was born from a misunderstanding of the lore that spiraled into an epic story (in my own mind at least). i live off of reviews, but please be kind.

    next chapter, the rough beast lands smack dab in the trade federation blockade of Naboo. And the people who wrote the prophecy, well, they didn't trust the species the Rough Beast came from.

    I could be way off here, because I don't know as much minutiae of stuff as some people on here, but it seems like the "Rough Beast"referred to in this poem could be the Vong.

    Actually no. It's an original race of my own creation. But the vong do play heavily into the backstory of the character who is known as the rough beast.

    He will be named next chapter. But he is an Archen (Ark-en) and he is the last of his kind. They gave there lives to destroy the ving, who in this story invaded before the seventh battle of Ruusan. The jedi didn't notice because of the thought bomb, which masked the utter destruction of the two races. And the only reason he survived is because of the will of the force.
