Cyrene now while she was looking down at her classmates on the river bank. She remembers a little exercise she and her classmates had a week back or so. They tired to hide from there Instructor though they failed but Katarn words of if you cannot physically do it try looking to the force. Cyrene then notice the grandmaster was also out here and called her first out of her classmates.
Cyrene did not know where they were going but she ended up on one of the temple. There she saw bunch of large rocks and such, the grandmaster ordered her to do a handstand and reach out with the force. Cyrene did as she was ordered without issue, then was ordered to use one hand and to reach out with the force to move a few larger rocks which she did as she could draw on more the force then normal, but she let a fierce groan as she used the light side which now tired her from its use. Cyrene then was order too move a larger pillar, but it was too much for her, but she did manage to move it a bit.
Cyrene remembers the grand master looking at her sternly but saying in time you will get. Cyrene take away from this is she getting better at this and to take pride in what she can do which kept her from being disappointed. Cyrene then when back to her classmates as they each did the same activity as she did with a myriad of results.
The class was then taken back to the temple where we went to the lab to make for are selves lightsaber hilts. Cyrene at first was thinking of all the designs she had read about and designed to make a different one then the standard. Cyrene originally wanted to make a double-bladed hilt but after a day of no success gave up on that idea. Cyrene then decided on a lightsaber pike hilt as it was something different it took her some time, but she was finally able to make one.
The class then could go off make are self’s some armor that we could personalize to a degree. Cyrene ended up going off into the area to find material to make herself some armor. Cyrene was successful and ended making armor that was a mixture a dark green colored robe with a padded chest and shoulder plates though it was not the strongest armor she could have made it was a mixture of form and function. Cyrene then notice her other classmates armor they each were different in one form or another. Though at first, she wondered were Sam was then heard plates move and saw her full Jedi battle armor.
The class then made training emitters for a lightsaber. Which Cyrene was happy that it was not hard. The class was then escorted to the landing pad where there were several training droids. Cyrene had seen this before as she had some practice with these training drones. The practice was not too hard, but Elam manage to redirect a blaster shot into Sam on accident. Then came the saber too saber practice which was not lethal but did manage to disarm Elam once in the sparing match which was nice as he was one the better lightsaber wielders in the class. Cyrene pride was a bit hurt in the fight that proceeded as Vrar easily disarmed her.
After the match the grandmaster and Kyle came out and called for us all to gather. Then when over the process to make synthetic lightsaber crystal as actual crystal were very hard to find in the galaxy current state. So, the class when to the lab to make are crystal and thankfully Elam found the instructions so that saved some pain for Cyrene anyway. Cyrene then remembered that the final thing was to use the force to make her lightsaber.
Cyrene closed her eyes and reached out with the force to carefully assemble her lightsaber. Cyrene felt the light side respond to her call which was calming but with her current nature was tiring for her to use. Cyrene then saw before herself a fully complete lightsaber pike and she activated the blade and a dark green color of plasma erupted from the blade with a snap hiss noise. Cyrene was happy of the color that her blade shown and it kind of matched her new armor.
Cyrene was then looking over all that she had made in these past few weeks. It did not seem like much time had passed but it had but now, Cyrene felt like she was becoming something different as her armor and weapon both made by her own hands. Cyrene felt a sense of accomplishment and pride with her works as she inspected her lightsaber with the hand holds she made with some spare leather she found and has used them as well to attach her padded armor to the robe she made.
Cyrene then was called to gather with her classmates all with their unique lightsabers. The grandmaster and Kyle told them that they had a mission to go. The class would be going to Naboo to gather some relics for the temple. Cyrene was then surprised that they would not have anybody else with them save a droid to pilot the craft and that Booh was in charge as this was her home world.
Cyrene was a bit nervous about leaving Yavin but with her classmates she did not show it. Though Cyrene was eager too see if she could find any other Twi’lek on the mission as it had been awhile since she talked with another of her kind. Cyrene hoped that this would be a positive experience and not like the situation with Dal.
