    STAR WARS: Jedi Academy II

    A Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far, Far, Away....


    STAR
    WARS


    Jedi Academy II

    It is a time of peace in the galaxy. Twenty-Five years have passed since the REBEL ALLIANCE destroyed the first DEATH STAR at the Battle of Yavin. Since that time, the Alliance has replaced the EMPIRE as the galaxy's governing body and renamed itself the NEW REPUBLIC. The NEW REPUBLIC has made great progress, even making a peace agreement with the IMPERIAL REMNANT, and the galaxy finally seems ready to maintain its time of peace. Luke Skywalker is now a Jedi Master, along with his wife Mara Jade Skywalker. Fulfilling his Master Yoda's request of passing on what he has learned, Luke has opened the doors of the Jedi Academy and set up base on the former alliance base on Yavin IV in the hopes of re-establishing the Jedi Order.

    Luke's efforts have allowed the Jedi ranks to swell to just over one hundred Knights and Masters and over twenty Jedi Trainees. Of these ranks are such esteemed Jedi as Jedi Master Gavriel Derragon and his one-time apprentice, now Jedi Knight herself Kali Tal'Set. After helping to infiltrate the Crimson Nova chapter of the Bounty Hunter's Guild, Gavriel and Kali have wed and moved to the Outer Rim planet of Sernpidal. Jedi Master Kyp Durron has founded an X-Wing squadron titled Kyp's Dozen-and-Two Avengers. Kyp and his squadron are currently policing the Outer Rim Territories from pirate and smuggling activites.

    While the NEW REPUBLIC under Fey'lya's administration has shown reluctance to accept the Jedi Order, many within the Order have shown just as much reluctance to endorse the government they have sworn to protect. However a new threat has arisen within the Wild Regions of space, construction has recently been completed on an Eclipse Star Destroyer created for the Hutt Crimelord Torba the Hutt. In choosing this region of space, Torba has been able to keep this superweapon's construction unknown. Jedi Knight Kyle Landoran has foreseen the threat this ship poses and has sent word back to the Academy. A galaxy-wide search has been conducted with minimal assistance from the NEW REPUBLIC and IMPERIAL REMNANT. Little do they all know these are only the precursors to a much more savage threat slowly manipulating events from just outside the galaxy . . .

    "I'd like to welcome all of our new students to the Jedi Academy. Here you will learn how to use the Force, various lightsaber techniques, history, and diplomacy. I have brought you here to study and to learn, but I myself am still learning. Every living thing must continue to learn until it dies. Those who cease to learn, die that much sooner.

    Perhaps it was misleading when I called this an "Academy" for Jedi. Though I will teach you everything I know, I don't want you merely to listen to me lecture. Your training will be a landscape of self-discovery. Learn new things and share what you have learned with others. I will call this place a praxeum. This word, made up of ancient roots, was first used by the Jedi Scholar Karena, distill the concepts of learning combined with action. A Jedi is aware, but he does not waste time in mindless contemplation. When action is required, a Jedi acts."


    There is no emotion, there is Peace.
    There is no ignorance, there is Knowledge.
    There is no passion, there is Serenity.
    There is no death, there is only the Force.

    "Study the Jedi Code, and apply it. May The Force Be With You." - Jedi Master Luke Skywalker

    Those familiar with the rules from Jedi Academy need not worry, same rules apply. For those who were not involved, here they are again. A few tweaks added, but same general principles. . .

    1. Players are allowed 2 Characters to control in SW: Jedi Academy II. I must ask that characters created are custom Jedi only. Meaning A Character you created. Mainstream characters such as Lando, Borsk Fey'lya, Han, Leia, Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo are NOT the focus of this story. This takes place 25 Years after the Battle of Yavin and will go into events covered in the New Jedi Order books, BUT WILL NOT BE A COPY of them - We're telling the tales of Jedi not seen much in those books. Main characters like Luke Skywalker, Mara Jade Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Leia Organa Solo (as well as a few others) may make guest appearances from time to time, but the story will NOT focus on them. Kyp Durron however we will see and for those hoping - I'm sorry but the part is filled. If you know of a Jedi sparsely covered in the NJO and you wish to expand on him or her, ask via PM and I'll get back to you ASAP.

    2. No Sith! With the destruction of Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader, the Sith are extinct. However, Dark Jedi are allowed since it's possible that a Student of the Academy dropped out, fell to the Dark Side, etc. To actually earn the title of a Sith, you would have to journey to their homeworld of Korriban and look up ancient texts and Sith Holocrons (Sith Teaching Devices and yes, there are Jedi Holocrons as well.) and train in the Dark Side of the Force. Since Sith are not allowed, no need to worry. Remember, Sith aren't allowed, but there will be a very Dark time for the galaxy in this thread - so dark that some Jedi may fall to that Side. . .

    3. You are also permitted to use Starcraft in this thread. However, if you don't know an X-Wing from a Star Destroyer or need help with official craft terms, PM me! I have the New Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels and Technology of Star Wars. Got a question? Give me a shout and I can guarantee an answer.

    4. Character sheets will be used since this is a place where all the Jedi are familiar on some level with each other, this will help others interact with you. Character sheets should look like...

    Name:

    Secondary Character (This is for those people I allow to have a secondary, Mainstream character such as Luke, Mara, Kyp, Jacen, Jaina, etc. If you do not have one, then you do not have to include this area.

    Age:

    Lightsaber Technique: (Choose from Single Lightsaber or Dual Lightsabers. Darth Maul's nifty Double Edged Lightsaber was specifically a Sith Training Lightsaber he happened to excel in using. and this time I will allow double-edged Lightsabers to be used! However I will make sure not everyone has one! If I feel there are too many, I will send out messages asking people to switch. After all, not every Jedi needs to use one.

    Lightsaber Color: (Choose from Green, Blue, Violet (Mace Windu exclusively has a Purple blade. Alternative is Violet so just say Violet.), Orange, Yellow, Gold, or Silver. Multi-colored blades aren't accepted unless the core is white with a colored hue. The full Red Lightsaber is reserved for Dark Jedi who create their own crystal for use in a lightsaber.

    Starcraft: (Once again, I can help get you some different starcraft since not everyone pilots or should pilot a Corellian YT-1300 (Like the Millenium Falcon). If you want to pilot a simple starfighter like an A-Wing or X-Wing or whathaveyou, that's acceptable. Starcraft should also have a name.) Keep in mind most Jedi use X-Wings as starcraft, a few exceptions will be made.

    Appearance: (Self-Explanatory. You can be any alien or humanoid from the Star Wars Universe, or choose to be human. Please note Gender in this area as well.)

    Bio: (Give your character a history. Note how they came to know of their Force ability.)

    Misc: Personality quirks, traits, likes and dislikes should be stated. This Field is Optional.

    Okay, I really didn't get to work him into the last one, hence I abondoned him, but I'm gonna use my charecter from the other thread who I did nothing with. This is not a continuing story, but a restart.

    Name: Zerron'ex

    Age: 35 (apx. equivalent to 13 in human years)

    Lightsaber Technique: Two Lightsabers

    Lightsaber Color: One saber is yellow (left hand) the other is silver.

    Starcraft: Z-95 Headhunter, however he merely owns it, he has no piloting skills of his own as of yet.

    Appearance: A male Falleen, he naturally conveys an air of confidence and superiority as all the members of his species do. He is unusually tall and thin for his species, even though he is not yet fully grown. As is usual for Falleen he has scales instead normal skin, it is normally gray-green however he has the ability to change his skin color; he doesn't have complete control over this ability yet. His only hair is a ponytail coming from the top of his head.

    Bio: The Bastard son of a great Falleen lord, he never knew his father's identity, much less knew him personally. However his father did pay dearly for his mother's silence about the affair. He lived conformably for most of his life, however this all changed when an antique caught his eye in a shop. The artifacts seemed to calling him, and they were very inexpensive, probably due to the fact that the merchant did not know what it was. Upon returning home he figured how to activate the mysterious item and then realized it was a lightsaber. Upon further question of the merchant and those who were knowledgeable in Jedi Lore he came to the conclusion that force powers were required to activate it, otherwise the merchant would've discovered how to use it long ago. He tried the saber out and it felt somehow right to use it, and he continued his practices in this ancient weapon. In the meantime however, he discovered information on the Jedi Academy and applied for admittance. He was accepted, however a little while before he left he realized that his saber would not be accept since it was double bladed, so his last actions before leaving Falleen were building two new sabers (an endeavor he failed several times before getting it right) and arranging for the care of his Z-95 Headhunter, the Slayer, since he had not begun his pilot training. Since he arrived at the academy he has taken a very proactive stance against the Vong, and has often shown support for Kyp's forces because they took the fight to the Vong instead of lazing about as Zerron'ex felt the other Jedi were doing.

    Misc: He is very dedicated to justice, partially due to his youthful idealism, this coupled with his Falleen coldness (which leads him to not consider the personal aspects of a situation, as well as leads him towards vigilante justice), and this is his single greatest failing. His force abilities are limited in their ability to affect objects outside himself, while he can effect himself very well with abilities like jump and speed, everything outside himself is almost impossible for him to learn (probably due to the Falleen emphasis on control of self). He doesn't really like other species, but he is able to tolerate them.

    Name: Zarx’Debarn

    Age: 134

    Species: Falleen

    Lightsabre technique: two short lightsabers

    Lightsabre colours: Both of Zarx’s blades are violet

    Description: Zarven’s scales constantly change colour but most of the time they stay in subtle shades of green and grey which is the usual colour for a Falleen. His face is smooth with a light pattering of scales framing his face. His eyes are two pitch-black opals with reptilian yellow pupils. His hair is pitch black and tied in a ponytail as is Falleen fashion and what would a Falleen be without fashion? His face is completely symmetrical and is very alluring but that could be the pheromones he gives off. He stands at about 1.8 meters in height and weighs . Zarven wears a very tight fitting jump-suit which shows off nearly every curve his body has including the bony obtrusions which make up Zarven’s spine. A short cape has been sewn into the back and to his arms making him look like he has got wings.

    Starcraft: Zarx owns a small-customised space yacht called the Manta. The ship’s interior mirrors it’s exterior and is very comfortable with the small luxuries like a small bar and repulsar chairs that only the rich can afford. The ship is armed with five anti fighter turrets and two ion cannons. The ship is a dark black with two elongated crescents crossed on the fuselage

    Bio: Zarx was born into a high noble family renowned for their off planet companies which always seemed to flourish no matter what happened. Zarx was the elder son of his father Zavin’Debarn and had to take the pilgrimage which all high ranking Falleen nobles had to take to show them the superiority of the Falleen. Before Zarx left he bought the Manta an experimental Manta space yacht designed to have both the fire power to repel pirates and the comfort of a home from home.
    Zarx left his homeworld while the Empire was still in power but before the chemical testing begun so Zarx was left with little choice but to earn a living outside of his homeworld. Zarx begun to transport high ranking officials and refugees on the Manta, to specific destinations and proved very gifted at avoiding Imperial war lords. This became evident during the Thrawn campaigns when Zarx managed to escape from a small planet called Andorin, which had fallen under the Grand Admiral’s control. Zarx was eventually spotted by the Academy and tested revealing him to have the force capabilities required to become a Jedi. He was rebuffed at first but was soon accepted and trained. He was 131 when he reached the rank of Jedi Knight and still hasn’t grown used to the title or the multitude of species that he has to come into contact with.

    Personality: Zarx is less xenophobic than most of his species and is calm and pityingly when he talks to them. He has very little control of his emotions compared to most Felleen. He has very few relationships with other Jedi and prefers to be the silent one of the company. He is quite smart and quick to understand certain aspects of plans.

    Name: Daniel Hope

    Age: 17

    Species: Human

    Sex: male

    Lightsaber Technique: Single Lightsaber

    Lightsaber Color: Orange

    Starcraft: A vintage B-wing that his father got him for his birthday, all flash, no substance

    Appearance

    The boy's body is tall (6'2") and reasonably well built for a young man of his age but his face makes him look too young. The baby fat never left it you see, he still has the round moon face and big eyes of a boy, the fact that they're blue only makes it worse, so does his childish blonde hair with the four braided pony tails at the back. He's a handsome lad but the fact that he still looks to be eleven years old at seventeen makes his life a misery.

    Bio

    Daniel Hope of the Roslo Hopes was born to one of the oppulant bougieousy families of said Planet. Roslo, as it has been for centuries, is a Planet of clear contrast, you're either filthy rich or poor and filthy and Daniel was one of the lucky ones. The boy had talents from day one, tipping over his plate just by looking at it and throwing a handful of food at his nanny without even touching it. The Force within him and his playful mind developed like a child itself, his power never went beyond that unfortunatly and as he grew older he never showed the respect his talents deserved, his parents didn't help

    'Go on Danny, show Lorra your little trick for mummy'

    Mollicodling was a big part of his life and even though his father sent him on several survival courses, the boy is practicly helpless on his own, his mind just doesn't click when it needs to...Wasted potential in my opinion...he would have made a poor Warrior had his parent's not spent so lavishly on fencing lessons.

    Roslo with it's rich slave like industry was a great contributor to the Republic and did much to corrupt it with it's own brand of beaurocracy, this made the richly resourced, poorly defended world a perfect target for the Dark Emperor Palpatine. The noble houses were driven underground and from there thought it wise to invest in the rebellion, the rebels owe a lot to the funds of the Roslo houses. The Imperials were eventually driven out and the Roslo Nobles returned to holding a rightful grip on their World.

    Roslo continues to invest into the Republic and the Jedi Acedemy and quite arrogantly sent it's young generation to said Acedemy, none of them had the force within them and were duly dumped into the New Republic Army, all except one.

    He looked more like a playboy than a Jedi

    and more like a boy than a man

    But within his naive and innocent soul

    There's the power of the Force

    Misc

    Daniel Hope has a very straightforward idea about good and evil, you're either one or the other and there's no in between.

    To him the Jedi are a group of errant Knights protecting the Galaxy from evil, he has little grasp of the complex philosophy behind the Force.

    He is spoiled, naive and soft

    That said his innocence, happy go lucky attitude and friendly round face makes him hard to hate or say no to.

    Name: Kohrag Yun

    Secondary Character: Garik 'Face' Loran

    Age: 49

    Species: Yuuzhan Vong

    Sex: Male

    Lightsaber technique: N/A

    Lightsaber Color:N/A

    Weapons: His amphistaff which he will often times use as a whip or a staff. He will also use the spikes that grow out of his wrist.

    Starcraft: A coralskipper (Yorik-Et in the Yuuzhan Vong language). He also uses a Miid Ro'ik which he has named Bringer of Agony which is a Yuuzhan Vong warship. They serve as command ships, blockade vessels, and assault starships. The Miid Ro'ik can also use the organic material from a dying coralskipper, kor chokk, and Worldship as fuel for its dovin basals that move the ship. Some material is transformed into secretions that ooze into the hull and become glossy black armored plates that can handle most blasterfire and collisions. They also have 60 molten rock projectors and its dovin basals can make a unified gravity well that stops enemies from making hyperspace jumps. However the Miid Ro'ik's deadliest weapon is a serpentine appendage with rough skin covered with black flecks. The opening at the end can suck up people and small starships using a powerful vacuum. It can also be used to transport troops to another starship or onto a planets surface. The Miid Ro'ik can carry up to 3,000 troops and other vehicles. It also is a carrier that can move hundreds of coralskippers using several long coral arms.

    Appearance: Kohrag Yun is taller than most humans with a muscular build to him. His face is covered with tatoos and scars. His tatoos have two styles. Coming from his temples down to his chin on both sides of his face are black tatooed lines that curve. On his both his cheeks he has a sunburst designed tatoo. At his forehead he has a black triangle tatoo. He has scars above both eyes and scars under both eyes with several smaller ones all over his face. Kohrag Yun's lips are frayed. His nose looks like it has been broken numerous times. Growing out of his left wrist are sharp spikes that can be used as a weapon. Kohrag Yun's eyes are a feral yellow and have a cat's eye pupil. When in battle he wears blood red Vonduun crab armor and when he isn't in battle he has been known to wear a flowing robe skin split down the middle to reveal his muscled chest, which has tatoos of the same design as his face. He has a large scar that goes down his chest diagonally. His head is completely bald and his skin is a grayish color. He has four long fingers ending in black talon like claws. Coming out of his ankles are two hooks that can do some damage but not enough to kill.

    Bio: Kohrag Yun comes from Domain Yun which is well known for producing some of the best warriors known to his people. His grandfather was one, his father was one, his brother was one, even his sister was one. From a young age he was taught on how to use the amphistaff and in about two months he mastered it. His first fight gave him the scar on his chest. He was fighting a Chazrach (Chazrachs are a reptilian type of creature that are used as slave soldiers by the Yuuzhan Vong) soldier who used a coufee knife and it managed to get past his amphistaff and slashed at his chest. The blow didn't kill him but left with a wound that would turn into a scar the warrior could wear proudly. After the Chazrach got that blow in he had his neck broken when Kohrag Yun wrapped his whip-like amphistaff around his neck and gaved a mighty tug on it. He is now looking forward to purging the galaxy of the infidels.

    Misc: Like all Yuuzhan Vong Kohrag Yun hates all machines that means droids, and spaceships. He refers the Jedi as Jeedai like all Yuuzhan Vong and the people of this galaxy as infidels for their usage of machines. His people only use living technology. Personality wise Kohrag Yun is cold, intelligent, ruthless, and he is an efficient killer.

    Name: Renn Torvec

    Age: 18

    Species: Human

    Lightsaber technique: Has some training in using the Dual Lightsaber style but is better with the single style.

    Lightsaber Color: Since he has been known to wield dual lightsabers Renn has one silver, and one gold bladed lightsaber.

    Star Craft: An XJ X-wing that he has dubbed Silver Warrior because of its silver paint job.

    Appearance: Renn is tall with a somewhat muscular frame to him. He has long brown hair slicked back and has a well kept brown beard. He has green eyes and his skin is pale. He often times will wear a brown tunic with a brown cloak over it but has been known to wear brighter colors. He is also very handsome.

    Bio: Hails from CoroNet, Corellia. His father was a politician with some connections to Chelch Dravvad of Corellia and his mother was scientist working for the New Republic. When Renn was just eight years old a group of Jedi told the young man that he was Force sensitive and when his parents found out they decided to send him off to be trained. While at the Academy he was trained by the Ithorian Jedi Master, Vero. however Vero died when he turned fifteen leaving Renn without a Master for the rest of his years. Renn is one of the Jedi that believes they should be defenders.

    Misc: Renn is arrogant, stubborn, sarcastic, and thinks he is a ladies man. His major dislike is Ganner Rhysode, they don't get along too well. He is also your typical Corellian in that he hates hearing about odds, the odds of him beating someone in a lightsaber duel so on and so forth.

    Name: Aaron Valtioc

    Race: Human

    Age: 33

    Lightsaber Technique: Single

    Lightsaber Colour: Blue. The hilt is heavily modified and covered in decorative inscriptions and patterns, a single sentence written down its side in Aaron’s unique family tongue. A particularly well-read scholar may be able to read it as; “Grace Eternal”. The weapon has been passed down through his family for generations.

    Starcraft: An XJ Class X-Wing, christened Ebon Serpent. The trusty ship has been modified to provide greater speed than its counterparts, but at the expense of durability. Black symbols and twisting patterns similar to those on Aaron’s back cover it’s entire form.

    Appearance: Aaron is a physically well-built man, standing at just under six foot. His form is muscular, but more lithe than sturdy, shaped much in the same way as a panther. Unless wishing to disguise himself Aaron never wears clothing upon his torso, having perfected his self-control by putting himself through numerous trials from walking the frozen wastes of Hoth to traversing the scorched sands of Tattooine. Hs back and arms are covered in intricate tattoos, a sign of his heritage. Upon his lower body Aaron wears a simple pair of baggy black trousers suited to his style. His hair is not particularly long and falls to the middle of his neck.

    Bio: The Valtioc line is a family of proud, nomadic people known for their powerful link to the Force. Each generation holds one potential Jedi to be trained in the ways of the force and granted the family lightsabre, Grace Eternal. During the empire’s stranglehold in the galaxy they were forced to hide on Coruscant with another family. Aaron is the latest of the Valtioc line, bearing their high expectations on his shoulders. He fought an underground war against the Empire in its final stages, training with his antique lightsabre in secret. When the Emperor’s reign was finally ended by the sorrowful hands of Darth Vader, Aaron was gifted with a place at Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy. Now thirty-three, Aaron is a Jedi Knight, although he has yet to take on a Jedi Apprentice.

    Misc: Aaron is a firm believer in self-control and discipline, putting himself through rigorous trials to sharpen his body and mind. He strives to attain a perfect balance of both Dark and Light sides of the Force, attempting to gain what he calls ‘True Harmony’. Aaron often chooses to wield his lightsabre in an unorthodox style, baring the weapon in a single hand and using the fluid movements and speed of his body to overwhelm his opponent.

    Name: Gabriel Kren

    Age: 22

    Lightsaber Technique: Dual Lightsabers

    Lightsaber Color: Blue

    Starcraft: B-Wing with Ebony coloured linings, calls it the 'Kren's Pride'

    Appearance: Roughtly 6' 2". Althletic build, black hair that comes to his neck. Wears an arrowhead earpiece on the lower part of his right ear, hsi casual attire consists of a white shirt, a sienna jacket, black trousers & boots, his Jedi atire is what was worn by traditional Jedi, a brown Robe, cream white wollen tunic & trousers with brown boots.

    Bio: Despite being a new generation Jedi, Gabriel has always sought refuge with the Jedi beliefes of over 4000 years past, during the days of the Mandalorian War, Revan, Malek & the sort. Most of his time, he has tried to incorperate both styles of the Jedi ways, both old & new.

    He first discovered his force abilities whilst his family were on a expadition to the dead Sith homeworld of Korriban, the build up of dark energies sent his own force sensativity into uncharted territory, as if the planet was calling him. The minute he was taken away from Korriban, he could finally understand what his parents were looking for on the graveyard worlds of the Sith. After the experience, he went with his family wherever they went on expaditions until he finally decided to syphon his force abilites at the academy & hopfully learn more of the Jedi of the past.

    During his time at the academy, his parents have sent him what they discovered on their digs across the galaxy to unearth more about the mysteries the Sith created & left when they suddenly disappeared from the Galaxy. He has also attempted to discover the same reason from his end in the academy archives.

    Misc: Often refers to events & legendary figures of over 4000 years before the fall of the old republic when in conversation

    Enter Kyle Landoran. Part 1

    Name: Kyle Landoran

    Age: 41

    Species: Human

    Sex: Male

    Lightsaber Technique: Single lightsaber

    Lightsaber Color: Orange

    Starcraft: XJ Class X-Wing, chistened as Starlight Wizard and modified by his uncles for slightly better maneuverability and speed. The lower pair of laser cannons were tweaked to fire slightly faster but weaker blasts for a more varied rate of fire between the X-Wing's laser cannons to get more shots in at a time. Painted light charcoal gray with blue stripes.

    Appearance: Kyle stood at 5'9" tall and weighed at 169 lbs, his body was slim but lean which was a typical built of a pilot. Like Luke Skywalker, Kyle maintained his shorter dark red hair. One look in his brown eyes shows the amount of determination to get something done. Kyle's skin color is of pale complexion, but slightly darker than a bit before since he spent more time on Yavin IV than inside the cockpit of a starfighter. He is often seen dressed in his dark blue Jedi robe, cream tunic and pants. Sometimes, when flying his X-Wing, Kyle would wear the same flight suit as he had wore back in his days with Rogue Squadron.

    Bio: Kyle was born on Alderaan with his twin sister, Katrina, during the later part of the Clone Wars. He was the grandson of an Old Republic hero in the Clone Wars, General Jake Landoran, who was also an ace pilot of Naboo's Bravo Flight before the Clone Wars had began. As a result of General Landoran's heroism and sacrifies in the Clone Wars, Kyle's family were at first renowned in the Empire. That was until the day the Landoran family was branded traitors when General Landoran defected to the Rebel Alliance as he was disgusted by the Empire which was transformed out of the Old Republic he had once fought for. He and his sister were both born Force-sensitive, and the first sign of that showed when they were only two years old. On one particular night, Kyle and Katrina both had a nightmare as they saw General Grievous torturing their own grandfather. As it turned out, later on the holonet news announced the Republic's defeat on Obroa-Skai, as General Landoran's forces were decimated by the Separatist droid army led by General Grievous himself. That was when his parents realized what was going on, but they never spoke of it for fear that Kyle and his sister would be taken away to be Jedi. Later on, as the Empire was hunting down the Jedi, Kyle's parents took great lengths to hide the uniqueness of the Landoran Twins. They even scolded Kyle and his sister for speaking of what they saw in their dreams!

    Kyle was the only one within the family that still held a bit of loyalty to the Empire, and for a good reason too. His grandmother was killed by a Separatist bomb which was intended to assassinate his grandfather during the Clone Wars. Deep inside, Kyle feared the Empire, but foolishly thought that if he could get into the Imperial Academy and join the Imperial Navy under a fake name, then it would only be a matter of time before he would restore the Landoran family's standing in the Empire. At the age of 18, Kyle left his family on Alderaan to go to the Imperial Academy. His father's last words to Kyle was "I hope you know what you're doing", little was known just how much they were going to come back to haunt Kyle. Kyle went in to the Imperial Navy under the fake name of Jak Korgin, and he excelled himself as a TIE Fighter pilot. In retrospect, if fate had things differently, then Kyle would had been part of Baron Soontir Fel's 181st TIE Interceptor Squadron. That was how skilled Kyle was with a TIE back then. But fate had different designs for Kyle, as the Imperials had discovered him on the day which Alderaan was destroyed by the Death Star. Kyle managed to escape with a contact which his sister told of him, just in case if he regrets his decisions as she had so bluntly put. Kyle managed to escape into Corellia, where he met up with members of the Rebel Alliance who told him the truth of what happened to Alderaan. It was at this moment that Kyle had snapped from the regrets and guilts of his naive mistake. He realized just how naive he was thinking that he could fix his family's image in the Empire by joining the Imperial Navy. Now they had exterminated his immediately family, although he never knew that his sister was actually captured by the Imperials and taken to Kessel just the day before Alderaan's destruction. He went to Yavin IV, where he had met up with Wedge Antilles and Rogue Squadron just in time for the Battle of Yavin. During the Battle of Yavin, Kyle had never got too close to the Death Star itself, but in his anger and vengeance he had shot down many TIE Fighters that got in his way.

    Since then, Kyle had fought valiantly against the Empire as he lived side-by-side with anger and vengeance against those who had taken his family from him. During the Empire's counterstrike against the Rebellion following the destruction of the Death Star, Kyle lost his cousin Tack but found something else deep within him. He had discovered his Force-sensitivity when Leia had saved his life by taking down TIE Fighters which were coming at him. He owed her his life since then. He managed to avenge Tack by taking down Earnorth, the TIE Interceptor pilot who took down Kyle's cousin. Kyle had also had a close call with Darth Vader himself, but he was fortunate to survive. Kyle took part in the Battle of Endor, and contributed to a major Rebel victory as he held off the TIEs with the others while Wedge, Lando and Tycho went inside the Second Death Star to destroy its reactor core. The war wasn't over yet, as Kyle still had other battles to fight alongside Rogue Squadron. During the Battle of Brentaal IV, Kyle and Rogue Squadron took on Kasan Moor's 128th TIE Interceptor Squadron and Baron Fel's 181st TIE Interceptor Squadron. Kyle fought Kasan in a one-on-one duel in which they nearly took each other down. Kyle did managed to take down TIE Interceptor pilot Rosk Raynor, who survived the crash. During the Battle of Gerrard V, Kyle once again took on Kasan. The duel ended as they lost each other in the chaos, it seemed that neither of them could bring themselves to shoot each other down. It didn't matter, as her TIE Interceptor was disabled by a Y-Wing anyway.

    Kyle kept up his valiant will in fighting the Empire, saw further action during the Thrawn Crisis. With the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn and the ending of the Thrawn Crisis, Rogue Squadron was disbanded and Kyle must think of another place to consider home as he had nothing to go back to. He founded Tack Squadron, a New Republic squadron named after his deceased cousin. Kyle had became a squadron leader, which he didn't expected to be. His Force-sensitivity was also increasing, and he felt that during the battle against the Reborn Emperor Palpatine. Kyle had led Tack Squadron with great distinction during the Battle of Mon Calamari, and helped took down some of the World Devastators used against the Mon Cal homeworld. After the Empire had signed a truce with the New Republic, Kyle heard that Luke had started the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. After inheriting Tack Squadron to his nephew Pip Horan, Kyle went there without hesistation, seeing that this was a golden opportunity for him to rebuild himself. Luke had taught him to let go of vengeful thoughts and anger, the ways of the Force and a Jedi. Kyle learned as hard as he could as he strived to become a Jedi, and he was happy in the Jedi Academy as he got to know friends like Jacen and Jaina Solo, Corran Horn and Gavriel Derragon. One day, Kyp Durron had approached him, asking Kyle to be part of Kyp's Dozen-and-Two Avengers as Kyp had recognized Kyle's exploits in Rogue Squadron. Naturally, Kyle accepted the offer.

    Kyle's first major action as a Jedi was to track down two disgruntled Jedi Trainees who fell slowly towards the Dark Side. It was during this chase that Kyle had met up with Kasan once again. After he and the other Jedi had managed to defeat them both, Kyle and Kasan knew that their love for each other wasn't something which could be held back. He decided to get Kasan to join Kyp's Avengers, with a bit of persuading to do, of course. Meanwhile, rumors of a Force-sensitive pirate had bothered Kyle for quite a bit. It bothered him even more during his first encounter against a pirate group known as Cleo's Raiders, led by Cleo Essa who was a Force-sensitive pirate. There was something about Cleo that bothered him and at the same time he also saw through the Force that something terrible would happen to Kasan. That happened during the final battle against Cleo's Raiders, while Kyle, Kasan and Kyp engaged against Cleo, Rosk and the rest of the pirates, the Imperial fleet under Grand Admiral Pelleon's command appeared. Kyle had persuaded Cleo to stand down many times before, but she never listened. Cleo attacked the Imperials, and Kyle had no other choice but to engage the Imperials with the rest of the Avengers. Before the overwhelming Imperial might, Cleo's Raiders allied themselves with Kyp's Dozen-and-Two Avengers. That was when Vice Admiral Talbot, with great grudge against Kasan, had personally ordered the 54th TIE Avenger Squadron to take her down. When Kyle saw Kasan being shot down, he felt pain, saddness, and the Dark Side slowly looming over him as he followed Kasan's doomed TIE Interceptor down to the planet of Kegan while the TIEs behind him opened fire. Kyp had finally persuaded Kyle enough for him to calm down a bit, but Kyle decided to stay and cover the Avengers' retreat as a vent of personal vengeance against the Imperials. Ironically, it was then Kyle had went up to another level in using the Force.

    Enter Kyle Landoran. Part 2.

    Bio (Continued): Kyle left the Avengers shortly after his return, thinking that he was a coward. Upon his return to the Academy, Kyle had spoken with Luke and Mara about what happened at Kegan. Soon afterwards, Kyle was made Jedi Knight officially. He, Gavriel and Kali were then assigned to track down yet another Jedi who walked the dark path. After some encouragement from both Gav and Kali, Kyle was spiritually reenergized as he set off with Gav and Kali to Kegan as a first stop. Upon arriving, Kyle realized that Kasan had made it out. As Gav and Kali left Kyle to continue their mission, he questioned the nearby village for the whereabouts of Kasan. He learned that Kasan was taken by a Hutt, and so he went to Nal Hutta to find her. It was then Kyle saw a vision of Cleo being attacked by Boba Fett while he was in hyperspace. It didn't take too long for Kyle to realized that his vision came true as he felt a loved one of his was in danger on Nar Shaddaa. When Kyle realized that it wasn't Kasan, he soon came to a shocking conclusion: Cleo Essa was actually his long lost sister, Katrina Landoran.

    Kyle then went down to Nar Shaddaa to save his sister from Boba Fett, which ended up putting himself in the line of fire as Fett decided to take out Kyle first. Kyle led Boba Fett into a destructive chase around the duracrete canyons of Nar Shaddaa. The chase ended at the industrial section of the Smuggler's Moon when he flew into a hole of a tanker while a proton torpedo was hot in pursuit after Boba Fett had his X-Wing locked on. Kyle managed to use the Force to cheat death and Boba Fett by having the torpedo destroying the tanker, escaping from the explosion and powered down his X-Wing down at a hangar below. After fixing his X-Wing as well as his R7 astromech droid, Jake, Kyle took off for Naboo for further repairs of his X-Wing. On Naboo, Kyle had spoken with Sabe' Yuutir, Padme Amidala's best friend and decoy, as well as Kasan's grandmother. They met under the momument of General Jake Landoran, as Kyle told her of Kasan's fate then reassured her that her granddaughter was still alive and that Kyle would do what it takes to find her. After parting from Sabe', Kyle encountered two bounty hunters who were chasing down another Jedi and defeated them. Soon enough, Kyle left Naboo in his newly modified X-Wing, chistened as Starlight Wizard.

    Kyle decided that he would find Katrina first, as she was in mortal danger with Boba Fett still after her. He found her at the remains of Alderaan, and finally reunited with his sister after such a long time. Rosk was angry, however, knowing that he was being cheated. Kyle then went with Katrina to start training her a bit in using the Force, but another danger was coming as they both saw a vision of an Eclipse-class Super Star Destroyer. They set off to find this Eclipse-class Super Star Destroyer and stop it if they can. Seeing Kasan inside the ship in a vision, Kyle knew that he must find this Star Destroyer as soon as possible. This time, it's personal.

    Misc: Kyle is the kind of Jedi that wanted to get things done. Like his grandfather, General Jake Landoran, Kyle is a fighter and the kind to despise loose ends. As far as being a Jedi was concerned, Kyle leaned a bit towards Kyp Durron's view as he believed that a Jedi must act whenever there was injustice and evil and wherever they maybe in the galaxy. His experience as a combat pilot back in Rogue Squadron had taught him to concentrate on everything, but he managed to incorporate some of Luke's teachings to filter out distractions from actual threats. Interestingly, Kyle was a man of three backgrounds, a Naboo, an Alderaanian and a Corellian. His father and grandfather were Naboo, he himself was Alderaanian, and his mother was Corellian. Kyle's R7 astromech droid, Jake, was named after his grandfather. Everytime Kyle gets in and out of his X-Wing, the Starlight Wizard, he loved to levitate Jake using the Force in and out of its astromech pocket.

    (Note: The entire bio is based on the Star Wars threads I'd took part in)

    Name: Kasan Moor-Landoran

    Secondary Character(s) Mara and Jaina

    Age: 35

    Lightsaber Technique: N/A

    Lightsaber Color: n/a

    Starcraft: X-Wing- having recently recieved it, she's not quite thought of a name for it. She wants something personable, therefore is taking her time with it. It's just a standard XJ class, slightly modified to keep up with Kyle's.

    Appearance: Kasan stands at 5'7" and weighs about 125 lbs. She has a medium build, slightly curvy and ample, due to child birth. Her skin has developed a tan due to the humid, warm weather, and she's worked hard to get her body toned and healthy after she had her twins. Her eyes are deep brown, and her dark brown hair, she’d let grow so that now it hangs to her mid back. Kasan wears whatever she can find that’s comfortable and hasn’t been chewed on, spit up on or, worn the day before.

    Bio: Kasan was born on Alderaan, raised there and took to flying at a young age. She was taken into the Imperial Navy because of her ace skills. Gaining experience and knowledge, she soon was given control of the 128th. After her home was destroyed, she fought with herself whether she was going to defect or not. But, after a while, stuck behind Soontir Fel, out of pure loyalty to him. After years of that, she finally got tired of it and ran.

    Kasan Moor was on Brentaal IV with Soontir Fel when the Rebels came to establish a foothold in it's sector. However when Baron Fel was shot down, Kasan and the 128th Squadron fled to Gerrard V. There she flew against Rogue Squadron again, but was hit by a Y-Wing's Ion Cannons and for the better part of two minutes was being bullied by that same Y-Wing as it chased her crippled TIE Interceptor. She ended the chase by proposing she join the Rebellion.

    After she joined Rogue Squadron, she revealed locations of hidden Imperial Strongholds such as the Jade Moon, Kile II, and the Rebel defense of Chandrila - Homeworld to Rebel Alliance leader Mon Mothma and in the same system as Brentaal IV - making it so Kasan fought with both sides in the Bormea Sector where the planets are located.

    Kasan was also present for the Liberation of Thyferra from a surprise assault from Moff Kohl Seerdon and Imperial Intelligence Director and would-be Empress Ysanne Isard.

    After Thyferra, Kasan went on leave from Rogue Squadron and returned to Naboo.

    A couple years later, after she adjusted to her life on Naboo, she ran into someone she never thought she’d see again… Kyle Landoran… The two quickly kindled a small romance. Through major and minor mishaps, the two manage to grow close and married under the statue of Kyle’s grandfather. The two also have twin boys, Zev and Wes who are about 6 months of age.

    Misc: She considers Kali one of her best friend’s, if not her only one. She loves Kyle and their boys more then life and would gladly and willingly give all for any of them. She also has minor jedi powers, but nothing as major as the others. She can sense small things and lift little objects.

    Yay! I've been waiting to join the next Jedi Academy thread. I haven't done much with Star Wars for awhile and I don't know much past the movies and a few of the books.

    Let me know if anything doesn't make sense.

    Name: Mahtan Nólatári

    Race: Human

    Gender: Male

    Age: 31

    Lightsaber Technique: Single.

    Lightsaber Color: Orange.

    Starcraft: Black Corona An old V-19 Torrent starfighter with minor modifications, mainly updates. The color is a flat black with a dark orange crescent moon and horizontal stripe on both of the folding airfoils.
    Kinda like this:
    ----(----

    Appearance: A picture says a thousand words and that’s more than what I can say for any appearance. See below

    Biography: Mahtan grew up on the planet of Bakura with a mother and his uncle. His father left when Mahtan was at the age of three and was supposedly killed at a cantina while being drunk and picking a fight with a very annoyed, and also drunk, H'nemthe. So Mahtan’s uncle soon became a father-figure and he would watch him daily as he worked in his swoop bike shop he had started as a kid. It wasn’t long after that the battle of Bakura took place (Directly after Episode VI) that Mahtan first found the Force. He had felt a portion of the pain of the minds and souls of humans that Luke Skywalker had felt onboard one of the Ssi-ruuk ships. It frightened Mahtan and led him to seek out guidance of his new feelings.

    Name: Keyan Danorath

    Secondary: Corran Horn/Anakin Solo

    Age: 23

    Race: Human

    Lightsaber Technique: Dual lightsabers

    Lightsaber colors: One silver, the other green.

    Starcraft: Modified Imperial Customs Frigate. Because it was used as a customs vehicle, the ship is extremely fast for it's size. Keyan normally travels alone, and has a skeleton droid crew operating the turbolasers, navigation and engineering. He had the ship repainted from its original white to a matte black, with paintings of an X-Wing squadron in flight on either side. It is named the Far Runner.

    Appearance: Standing 6'0", Keyan is well built and toned from his constant lightsaber practice. He wears a midnight blue tunic, that complements his dirty blond mop of hair. From beneath his locks stare two intense orbs, an icy blue. He is not one to show emotion, but can still find humor in most situations.

    Bio:Born and raised on the former Imperial capital of Coruscant, Keyan grew up with an inborn hated of Imperials. Once the planet was liberated by Alliance forces, Keyan could not stand the thought of his most hated enemies switching sides and joining the New Republic. He inherently does not trust any Imperials, reformed or not. Because of the Emperor's hate for Force-sensitive people, Keyan and his family always had to hide their nature, and pretend to be something they weren't. He is proud of his heritage, and has always wanted to meet Luke Skywalker, his idol. Upon hearing that a Jedi Academy was being established on Yavin IV, a historical landmark, Keyan took his ship and set out to see if he could learn more about the Force. He is not big on Force powers, aside from leaping and running. Keyan favors the physical aspects, of lightsaber combat, and trains extensively in a special room he built on the Far Runner.

    Name: Gavriel Derragon

    Age: 24

    Secondary Character(s): Luke Skywalker mainly, will fill other roles as needed.

    Lightsaber Technique: Though proficient with two, Gavriel often chooses a single lightsaber. The techniques he has studied are: Shii-Cho, Makashi, Soresu, Ataro, Shien, Niman, Currently Gavriel is studying the 7th form of Juyo/Vaapad alongside Jedi Master Kyp Durron.

    Lightsaber Color: White.

    Starcraft: SoroSuub Personal Luxury Yacht 3000 co-owned with Kali Tal'Set Derragon christened Star's Shadow and a TIE Advanced x1 dubbed Justice

    Appearance: Human Male. Shoulder-length dark hair and blue eyes. Wears a tan colored Jedi Tunic with blue highlights. Black cloak over it.

    Bio: Gavriel's family was prominent with Palpatine's Empire on Coruscant. His father Zental Derragon built prototype shield generators that could be small and cheap enough to be incorporated with TIE Fighters. Though the designs never yielded an actual working model, the Derragon family prospered. Once the Empire fell from Coruscant, they relocated to a skyhook on the planet Commenor. Gavriel was 9 when pirates nearly killed his parents for Zental's shield generator designs, however a local Imperial garrison sent TIE Fighters to destroy the pirate's ship while Stormtroopers killed and/or captured the pirates themselves. Gavriel grew a fondness for the Empire both out of respect and admiration. When the New Republic came to power and peace was established with the Empire, Gavriel found he could make objects float whenever he focused his mind. His mother, Alcora identified it as a Force Ability yet didn't know how her son could be trained. When Luke opened the Jedi Academy, Gavriel joined it at age 18. Shortly thereafter, his family was murdered by a Gavriel's friend-turned failed Jedi student Orreck Sneptriss. Orreck nearly succeeded in turning Gavriel to the Dark Side of the Force, but Gavriel in the end refused to be destroyed by it. In the End, Gavriel had destroyed a rogue Imperial Admiral, bested Orreck in Lightsaber combat, and rescued a beautiful Twi'lek female named Alaay Fencura from her service as the Admiral's private dancer. For his efforts in the Elrood sector Gavriel achieved the rank of Jedi Knight. Months after that Gavriel had developed a close friendship with the Jedi Trainee Kali Tal'Set. Gavriel also found common ground with Jedi Master Kyp Durron and eventually joined, along with Kyle Landoran, Kyp's starfighter group Kyp's Dozen-and-Two Avengers. The run was brief and ended on the planet Bakura when Gavriel along with a team of Jedi defeated a resurrected Sith Lord Darth Nevrin who had possessed the body of a runaway Jedi Trainee Agaba and took on another Jedi runaway as his Dark Side Apprentice-Tabris Anobi. After the fight, Gavriel decided to return to the Jedi Praxeum on Yavin IV to fine-tune his Force Skills. Before his return Gavriel shared a kiss with Kali and the news that Luke had allowed him to take Kali on as his Jedi Apprentice.

    While back at the Academy, Gavriel and Kali were inseparable. Gavriel often took to teaching Kali with a proactive, hands-on approach. During the training, Luke recieved a distress call from a small planet on the very edge of known space - Nambia. Gavriel and Kali accompanied Luke and a team of Jedi along with two Mon Calamari cruisers to assist the peaceful Nambian people. Gavriel and Kali landed on Nambia and helped the Jedi Student Stephen Flambeaux help destroy a lost Dark Trooper Production Facility. They then followed a Cronitian vessel as it left the facility and soon found themselves on the Volcanic swampworld Cronus IV - The homeworld of the Cronitians and their Dark Side wielding Vulkarth Priests. The duo fought through one of the Vulkarth Temples and swarms of Cronitian henchmen. However when they finally got back to their ship, they were engaged by a group of Vulkarth Priests. Durning the fight, Gavriel lost most of his left hand and nearly surrendered to his anger seeing Kali struck down with Force Lightning. They fought their way off the world and Gavriel fell unconscious leaving Kali to fly the Star's Shadow herself back to a Mon Calamari Cruiser's infirmary.

    While on leave, Gav and Kali took a vacation on Spira where they met Lando Calrissian. Gavriel played Lando in a Sabacc game and won his TIE Advanced x1, which was part of several craft Lando was converting for use in his asteroid belt/obstacle course named Lando's Folly. Gavriel and Kali helped Kenth Hamner, Mekare Medjev, and Colonel Stephen Flambeaux help infiltrate the Crimson Fire Chapter of the defunct Bounty Hunter's Guild. Shortly after the mission was over, Gavriel revealed that the mission had been Kali's to see if she wa ready for Knighthood. The mission was a success and Kali was promoted to the rank of Jedi Knight yet they still accomanied each other on missions. Gavriel and Kali are now married. Their honeymoon was spent back on Spira, and they eventually moved to the temperate Outer-Rim world of Sernpidal. Yet they still maintain their room at the Jedi Academy as the base of operations. Gavriel formerly owned an XJ-Model X-Wing, The Outsider, but presented it as a gift to Kali. - Gavriel couldn't imagine anyone else piloting a craft he had modified to his own specs. And it would provide a unique opportunity for Kali to modify it to her own specs.

    Misc: Gavriel believes that there is no Dark Side to the Force other than the darkness inside the person who wields it. An unorthodox approach to the Force, but one Gavriel truely believes in. He owned an R2 Unit named "Screech" but recently gave her to Kali. Gavriel does own a silver labor droid GV-55 "Jeeves".

    (TO BE INTRODUCED LATER)
    Name: Supreme Commander Shang'vah Kree'gar

    Age: 29

    Species: Yuuzhan Vong

    Weapon of Choice: Coufee, Amphistaff, various other bioengineered weapons.

    StarCraft: Coralskipper (Yuuzhan Vong Starfighter), and an enlarged Uro-Ik V'alh (Yuuzhan Vong Battleship) named "Glorious Torment" It resembles a long, rocky slab composed of hardened slag. Located near the rear of the ship the craft is raised into something of a large mountain used for Ritual sacrifices to the Yuuzhan Vong slayer god Yun-Yammka his patron god. The raised portion is also used for controlling the vessel. Boasting more than 80 plasma projectors and designed specifically for direct battle against capital ships. The craft also carries up to 20 "arms" that carry up to 100 Coralskippers.

    Appearance: His fanatical devotion to his species gods has made Shang'vah almost death incarnate. The back of his skull has been ridged into a point, his lips ripped off constantly revealing his teeth, his canines of which have been extended. Purplish sacks hang under his eyes. The face has been heavily scarred and tattooed, an upside down heart-shaped hole serves as the nose that he gave up. His skin has taken on a bluish tone. His Vonduun-crab armor is rarely ever removed- for he is purely devoted to war and removes it only when in cleansing or sacrificing another body part. His left hand is replaced by the tri-claw of a predatory Skorr. Upon his shoulders are several legs of the crab armor, the smallest end legs bear his cape, the skin of a mighty Garalla Ray. Both feet have been amputated and replaced by the grasping talons from a vua'sa creature he slayed.

    Bio: Shang'vahs body has never rejected any implants of any kind and his brutaltiy and devotion have allowed him to scale the ranks to his current position of Supreme Commander, just under the rank of Warmaster, in a relatively small amount of time. Shang'vah has been granted a special invasion path when the invasion begins. His immediate subordinate, Commander Kohrag Yun is trusted, but only allowed a certain degree of closeness. Shang'vah harbors ruthlessness in his heart, his patron god Yun-Yammka the Slayer is said to bless Shang'vah with each cold-hearted act. The only other Yuuzhan Vong that gained any measure of affection from Shang'vah is his female attendant Keela.

    I'm here for the party...

    Name: Kali Tal'Set Derragon

    Age: 21

    Species: Human

    Sex: Female

    Lightsaber Technique: Single Lightsaber

    Lightsaber Color: Green, and has one that is violet.

    Starcraft: Star's Shadow, a cobalt blue SoroSuub Personal Luxury Yacht 3000, co-owned with Gavriel Derragon. And an XJ-Model X-Wing, renamed Derragon's Outsider.

    Appearance: Kali stands at a defiant 5'6" and weighs about 117 lbs. She has a medium build, not too curvey, but not all angles, either. Her skin has a light tan to it, and she's pretty toned and healthy from the constant Jedi training. Her eyes are dark green, a few freckles sprinkle across her nose, and her slightly oval shaped face is framed by unruly curly, deep red/brown hair that hangs to her waist. Kali usually wears anything comfortable. Slacks and a tank top, shorts and a vest, tunic and pants, whatever is clean that day.

    Bio: Kali is her parent's only daughter. She has three older brothers, a twin brother, and a younger brother. Her father's family owns a repair shop on Corellia that fixes and modifies anything from droids to holovids to personal spacecraft. And if you were a Tal'Set on Corellia, or related to one, you worked there. Kali was no exception. She grew up with a hydrospanner in her hand, taking in any piece of knowledge her father could give her, and then some.

    From an early age Kali was different than her brothers. She could sense when things were going to happen, read thoughts sometimes, little stuff like that. Her grandmother called it "The Sight." Really it was the early stages of the Force. Kali grew, the Empire fell, New Republic came into being, and somehow her grandfather found out about the Jedi Academy. Kali got in, packed her bags, and arrived, ready for training.

    The only Tal'Set to ever really leave Corellia, and do something other than work for her father, she had alot to live up to. She became a Jedi Apprentice to Jedi Master Gavriel Derragon after the Academy rescued and defeated two Jedi trainees who had turned to the Dark side on Bakura. Fate, and the Force brought them together. Back on Yavin IV, he taught her the ways of the Force and somehow, they fell in love.

    While on a mission to Nambia, they helped destroy a Dark Trooper production facility and defeated the Vulkrath priests. Not without a price though. Gav almost gave into the Dark Side when he saw Kali being hit, and lost his arm. They both recovered and survived, however, only growing stronger because of their trials.

    A few months, Gavriel and Kali helped Kenth Hamner, Mekare Medjev, and Colonel Stephen Flambeaux infiltrate the Crimson Fire Chapter of the defunct Bounty Hunter's Guild. They successfully defeated the guild, and after the mission, Kali was awarded the status of Jedi Knight. The two stayed together, fighting the evils and keeping the peace around the galaxy. A few months later, they got engaged, and after a year, were married. They now live on Sernpidal, along the Outer Rim, and also keep their rooms at the Jedi Academy.

    Name: Zeke Markees

    Age: 19

    Lightsaber Technique: Duel lightsabers

    Lightsaber Color: Orange and blue

    Starcraft:none

    Appearance: Male, Human. Zeke stands about 6,3 with a semi muscular build. He is a pretty good looking person, he about 190 lbs. His hair is a mixture of blonde and brown, but not a dirty blonde more like blonde on the top and brown on the bottom. His eye's are a blueish grey, that seem to change color to green sometimes. His skin is tanned not due to sun bathing but just to natural heretity. HeHe wears black boots, a longsleave shirt, pants and a padawan cloak over that.

    Bio: Being born of coruscant Zeke's life wasn't easy or hard. Lower middle class didn't make life all that fun, but it wasn't miserable. His Father being a local shop owner and his Mother being a Maid to some rich Families got them by. Zeke wasn't overly talented in school which crushed the families idea get put him through law school or an famous school that would no doubty take him far. But Zeke was good at Gambling and sports. When he played he was faster and quicker than the other kids. If someone was running away from him and they were a good distance away Zeke would catch up, if he really wanted to. When a ball seemed just a little to high to catch. Zeke just thought he could do it, and he did it. Gambling was another thing when he and his friends would play a card game, Zeke knew when others were lying or he almost knew what they had. So he won every game. Zeke was eventually taken in by Jedi when he was 13, it was only a matter of time said some people.

    Misc: Zeke is a person who everyone likes. He has strong emotions which some times incapacatates him from the force.

    Name: Devan Iscandar

    Secondary Character: None

    Age: 22

    Lightsaber Technique: Double bladed lightsaber. Tends to use just one side unless encountering multiple opponents.

    Lightsaber Color: (I must protest as there was also yellow used by the Jedi Sentinals) However, I'll stick with blue.

    Starcraft: X-Wing

    Appearance: Male and teh human. Devan stands at about 6'1". He is very innocent in appearance and is also very skinny due to lack of food. He has black hair that extends a bit down to his jaw and comes down to his blue eyes in the front.

    Bio: He was born into a poor family. He was fed stories of his ancestors being strong in the force. For much of his life he scoffed at the idea and lived life as normally as he could. He traveled often and eventually found himself amongst the scum on Tatooine. Suddenly he seemed to almost be able to predict exactly what cards came up in his opponent's hand. He was viewed as a cheater and he quickly fled. He returned home to find that his mother had passed away and could find no trace of his father. Angered he began to track his father down, but eventually the trail went cold. He found himself at a loss and decided he would not speak nor think of his past again. He would only move forward. Unfortunately, that path got him in trouble once more for 'cheating' at gambling. He was locked away for a period of time that seemed like forever and it made him take a solemn vow. Never again would he allow himself to be chained down. He escaped months later and began jumping around planets searching for a place to belong. A year later he found himself playing an old man. He bonded with him as he hadn't bonded with anyone in a long time. The man became a second father to him, and eventually told him of why he thought it was he seemed so gifted at his gambling trade. He encouraged Devan to go and meet with Luke Skywalker. Devan agreed with him and decided that he would either gain the answers he needed or Luke would tell him what he's always thought. The man handed him a book as he got on board the spaceship and he began to read it through. It held great stories of battle between the Jedi and the Sith. He fell in love with tales and as the transport ship made stops he began to gather things for his newest project. Most Jedi used a single lightsaber, but he had experience fighting with a staff and it seemed an old double bladed lightsaber called to him. He began contrustion at once. Unfortunately, he could not get it functional before arriving to meet with Skywalker.

    Misc: Devan has a definite problem with authority. While he shows respect the urge to rebel is always there. He fears situations where he feels he has no control. He is a generally kind person and thinks well on his feet. He is in hopes that Master Skywalker will help him overcome his past as he moves along the Jedi path. Devans main weakness in combat is that he tends to trust in his abilities to an extreme point.

    Let us hope my home life does not interfere this time eh? This character is based off my SWG character.

    Name: Navrae Re'en

    Age: 55

    Lightsaber Technique: Single saber.

    Lightsaber Color: Blue saber

    Starcraft: z95 Headhunter, upgraded with engines from former Imperial TIE interceptors and the shield harmonics have been balanced to near perfection. The inclusion of an R3 astromech droid increases the balance of his ship and gives an extra mind to help pilot. Thrusters are still the original fit, along with the boosters, but the weapon systems have been improved ten-fold, now including proton torpedo launchers and increased power in the laser cannons.

    Appearance: Navrae was born on Corellia, one of the population centres of the galaxy. The amount of races on his home planet has given rise to quite a varied look in himself. He himself is a Twi'lek, one of the races with long head tails known as 'lekku' growing from their heads. This prevents the wearing of most helmets, but otherwise is quite fortunate as lekku provide a kind of body language between other twi'leks that no other race can understand. His skin is a light earthy tone and patterns on his lekku are dirty white. He has twinkling bluie eyes and freckles mar his face, some may say making it even more handsome. He doesn't care for the traditional Jedi robes, wearing them only ceremonially, and usually wears a thick jacket and casual pants.

    Bio: Coming originally from the planet Corellia, Navrae was exposed to many people in his youth and learnt to be quite streetwise. But the world kept him down, he ran small jobs for a local gang, piloted them, dropped a few things around the planet, of course he never used registered transport.

    It was in his late teens that he got in major trouble, he had graduated to piloting ships for his gang, who now worked for some unseen benefactor. But he ran into a little...Imperial trouble. While running a small cargo through space, his freighter was attacked by Imperial militants, who believed it to be carrying Rebel spies. They dropped him on Tatooine, and that was all that was heard of him, until he joined the Rebellion.

    The Imperial behaviour incited Navrae to acts that many would deem terrorism. He struck down pirate camps, imperial bases and took down a part of the Tatooine space force of the Empire. The flame of freedom had spread to him and he was ready to give his life for the Rebel Alliance.

    It was not long after this that he came into contact with Luke Skywalker, he was not sure if Luke sensed the Force surging raw through him, but he felt the change in himself, and after the destruction of the Death Star 2, and the end of the Empire, Navrae was one of the few who had managed to train himself, via discovering Jedi who had hidden themselves from the Empire.

    It was a long time before he met with any New Republic officials, prefering solitude, and he has only recently come out of his solitude to embrace the new Galaxy...

    Name:Paul Sadu
    species: human
    Age:16 (looks like hes seen more battles than he has been alive for)
    Lightsaber Technique:two is preferred for him
    Lightsaber Color:Gold and Silver.
    Starcraft: an old jedi star fighter that he found on his planet and fixed up.
    Appearance:Male, ragged brown hair and dark brown eyes that glare like he has seen many battles that might give them nightmares, he wears a white trenchcoat opened up to reveal white boots and baggy white pants with a baggy white shirt to top that off, stands at 5'11".
    Bio:his planet was one of the planets that was hit hard by the clone wars so he was poor to begin with, (lucky he even found the jedi starfighter as well) he made his living by working for whoever could give the most money untill he was discovered to have jedi powers last year. now he is only a year into the jedi program and he already passed up most of the padawans (like anakin only less evil when he grows) and trained as best as he could in piloting ever since he found the starfighter.
    Misc: likes to eat a lot but isnt very communicative, dislikes anything that causes him to do more work.

    In the Beginning . . .Part 1

    ...:::The gas giant of Yavin hung suspended with the diminuitive blue ball of one of it's moons, Yavin IV, beside it. Both are almost oblivious to the battle raging in the space between them. The familiar sound of the Twin Ion Engines scream overhead, firing green blasts at the target X-Wing in front of it. However, the TIE craft is not typical to the hordes seen throughout the Empire, this TIE has distinct bent wings and a thicker body to house it's shield and hyperdrive systems. The X-Wing however is also not typical to the rest seen in the Alliance. For this X-Wing is being operated by a Jedi Knight. And, as if Fate has conspired to test the X-Wing pilot's will, the pilot of the TIE also has Force ability, though on a more powerful scale. The X-Wing shoots past with the TIE Advanced in hot pursuit. Carefully the TIE is manuevered until it lines up it's targetting reticle with the back of the X-Wing. The TIE pilot's voice carries determination as he speaks. "I have you now . . ." green beams fire from the TIE and streak towards their target. The X-Wing, aware of the TIE on it's tail, depressed the rudder and juked to the right at the last moment when the TIE took a pot shot at it. The pilot was half a second too late, though. The low-powered green blaster bolt splattered on the shields over the right S-foil. "Scoundrel...." The pilot muttered as she spiraled downwards and away from the TIE. Boosting power to the engines, the X-Wing looped around to come up under the TIE fighter.:::...

    ...:::The pilot of the TIE Advanced however would have none of being taken so easily. Pressing the brake and turning the craft wing over wing to the left and away from the upstart pilot and her X-Wing. Kali Tal'Set had gotten better since overcoming her fear of spaceflight. Already she was an accomplished pilot in her own right, her latest manuever showed the TIE pilot, Gavriel Derragon, just how far she had come. "Excellent princess, now let's see how you deal with this . . ." Once the TIE had U-turned Gavriel pushed the accelerator hard then made another U-Turn only this time lurching the craft upwards and setting it right-side-up to keep the pursuit of the X-Wing. Already he could see the red thrust of all four of the X-Wing's engines. Gavriel then let loose a few more potshots to let her know he was right behind her yet again. The blaster bolts just skimmed the top of Kali's sheilds this time. As soon as Gav had showed on her radar behind her, she dropped her speed just slightly. Pulling up on the yoke, she flipped the X-Wing in a tight arc up and over the TIE fighter, putting her upside down in Gav's screen. She throttled up and sped away from the TIE.:::...

    ...:::Gav watched the X-Wing as far as he could until she left his viewport. "What?!" Was all Gavriel could say as she arced up and over then sped away. Gavriel leaned his TIE into a turn to the right as he tried to catch back up with Kali. She was nowhere on his radar until he saw the blue dot of her craft against the white grid on his radar screen. And she was right behind him moving swiftly to match his flight path! Red streaks then shot past his viewport narrowly missing the right wing solarpanel of his TIE. Gav thumbed the comline as he threw his craft into another spiraling turn away. "Your skills are complete. That was an advanced manuever Kali." Kali had looped around and back again to come up on Gav's tail. She switched her lasers over to dual fire and pressed the trigger. Smiling to herself when they barely missed, she watched Gav spiral away, turning to follow. Her voice filled his ears as she turned on her own comlink to respond, still hot on his tail, not missing a beat. "You're just getting slow, Gav. Either that or letting me win again..." Gavriel shook his head and was about to respond when a priority incoming message indicator lit up. No doubt Kali recieved it as well since it came from the Jedi Academy back on the Yavin moon.:::...


    ...:::Gavriel pressed the holotransciever and the blue holographic image of Luke Skywalker came into view. "This is Luke Skywalker reminding all Jedi that the meeting scheduled for 5:00 Yavin Standard Time is still in effect. It will be held in the Main Audience Chamber of the Great Temple. And remember, this meeting is mandatory, especially if your name is Kyp or Gavriel. That's all." Gavriel could just make out the smirk on Luke's face as he spoke Gav's name before the holo faded. "Joker. Must think he's funny." Kali's laughter came over the com next as she turned the X-Wing around to head back towards the Academy on Yavin IV. "Thats because he is. You two were late to the last meeting, remember? And last one back gets the refresher last..." Gavriel gave a smirk as he allowed Kali to take the lead, glancing as his chrono, Gavriel saw the time was 2:30 Yavin Standard. "Then you'll be waiting outside the door." Gavriel thought to himself. Allowing Kali's X-Wing to fly right into his targetting reticle, Gavriel then locked course with the X-Wing. Using the Force to measure the distance carefully, Gavriel fired 2 twin-shot blasts from his TIE just one meter over Screech, the R2 Unit in the X-Wing. As planned, Screech focused on the blast enough to lose the boost control and slowed. Slowed down enough to allow Gavriel to shoot past Kali racing towards Yavin IV.:::...

    In The Beginning . . . Part 2

    ...:::Kali didn't have time to counteract the assault Screech and Gav brought down on her. She watched Gavriel shoot past her screen. "Cheater!" She yelled into the comm. "You too, Screech... You're supposed to be on my team." She grumbled, but shook her head after a moment, smiling. Screech however replied in readable format on his small screen inside the X-Wing's cockpit. "I was unaware there were "teams" in this training exercise, and I was spooked by the shots. Do forgive me Mistress Kali." "You'll be cleaning spare parts for a week for that, Screech." She replied, but slowed the speed even more, watching Gav's TIE fighter disappear on the horizon. She aimed the craft to the right as they broke the atmosphere on Yavin IV. If he wanted to play dirty, let him. She was going to take her time then. She brought the X-Wing in low, just skimming above the tallest tree tops on her way back to the Academy.:::...

    ...:::Gavriel had landed his TIE Advanced inside the main hangar of the Great Temple. The top of the TIE's cockpit opened up with a released hiss of pressure and Gavriel stood up and climbed out of the cockpit. Hearing the released pressure from the opening of the cockpit was something Gavriel loved to hear. He had modified his TIE Advanced to hold air and create new oxygen constantly, therefore the suit used by Darth Vader and the similar ones used by TIE Pilots were no longer necessary. Once Gavriel had jumped down from the craft, he turned to look back up at it. A TIE Advanced x1, the same type of fighter used by Darth Vader himself. Once used to destroy Jedi, now flown by a Jedi. Gav had spent a long time modifying the TIE Advanced to his tastes and it was ready to fly like an extention of his body. Of course a few more tweaks would be needed. Gav only knew so much about machinery, it was Kali who was once a mechanic and had most of the knowhow in that area. Gavriel then turned as he heard the familiar roar of an XJ-Model X-Wing's four engines enter into the hangar bay. Once the engines idled, the repulsorlift came online with another familiar whine. The pushed air flew into Gavriel catching his black cloak as it rushed by.:::...

    ...:::A few moments later, the cover of the cockpit opened and Kali stood up, stepping out of the X-wing and onto its nose. She manuvered her way down a suitable distance, then jumped off, landing softly on her feet. She stood up and pulled off her piloting helmet, shaking out the long red curls kept hidden underneath. She then worked on pulling off her gloves and unzipping the front of the pilot's suit as she walked over to Gav. Gavriel smiled slyly and spoke. "Well since we're both here together in the hangar maybe the refresher race was a tie." She walks right up to him, stopping only just before their bodies touch, the gloves tucked into the helmet and the helmet held against her hip. "Well if its a tie, then how do you suggest we decide who gets to use the refresher first?" Gavriel lingers there, his eyes looking right into Kali's as if hinting at something. With his usual nonchalant manner, Gavriel turns and starts walking. "I guess the oldest gets to use it first. . ." Gavriel then stopped and glanced over his shoulder, a michevious grin playing at his lips despite his best efforts.:::...

    ...:::Kali rolled her eyes, then caught up with him, slipping her arm around his waist, smiling up at him. She knew what he had in mind. "That would definitely be you... I'll just find something else to do, maybe paint my nails or clean up the bedroom a bit...." Gavriel nodded as if they were all good ideas to be sure, but that a much better one was prevalent in his mind. The mindlink they both shared sent all the message they both needed. After all, the meeting was only a good 2 hours and 15 minutes away. Screech however whistled and tootled frantically still stuck inside the socket behind he X-Wing's cockpit. Gavriel turned and looked, then looked back at Kali. "Oh yeah, Screech hates it when he's left in the X-Wing like he's forgotten." Kali glanced over her shoulder and then frowned up at Gav. "Oh yeah, I forgot. Well it serves him right for conspiring against me with you. Don't think I didn't notice that little trick." Screech had popped himself out of the socket by this time. After a moment, Kali concentrated on him with the Force, and lifted the little guy easily down off of the X-wing, setting him softly on the hanger bay floor. The R2 unit then gives an indignant sound and follows after Gavriel Kali, already headed up to their room.:::...

    A Reminder, This takes place 1 week removed from Torba The Hutt's Death as seen in Jedi Academy I. Kasan Moor is still missing and the Jedi Academy is on High Alert from the Eclipse-Class Star Destroyer they found out the Hutt was building. However the Eclipse Star Destroyer has now been comandeered, but by who, the Jedi do not know . . . Once the storylines left over from Jedi Academy I have been completed, we will then jump one year ahead. When this happens, I will then post a message letting everyone know. A good idea for everyone to keep in mind is this is the chance to make some back some back story to their characters. So take advantage of this opportunity.
