Jedi Academy - A Star Wars Force & Destiny RPG

Attacking The Empire

The instrument panel before her lit up in a series of red flashing lights. The X-Wing’s sensors detected another barrage of fire from the squadron of TIE fighters behind her. Sam jammed the stick forward to try to send the starship in a downward trajectory to move out of position. A loud panicked series of beeps came from the astromech docked in the back of the vessel. The on-board computer translated this to text.

CONTROL SYSTEMS SEVERELY DAMAGED!

This was a realization that came to her nanoseconds before reading them. The last barrage of fire had not only dropped her shields but also rendered the starfighter nearly entirely immobile. She quickly glanced toward Dasvee through the transparasteel cockpit and noticed it didn’t look like things were going any better for her.

“This was it.” she thought to herself. For a brief instant she regretted the bandstanding she had done before the group had traveled to the droid plant on Mygeeto. Her fears of her friends being harmed had been amplified by the dark entity that had controlled her but still she was adamant about accompanying her classmates as they went into combat.

“What good had it all done?” she mentally chastised herself. She was the least capable in her class in regards to combat and now her situation was reminding her in possibly the worst possible way.

Another barrage of laser fire strikes her starship a second after she instinctively pulls on her breathing ring and hits the cockpit ejection lever.

Sam rockets out of the X-Wing a moment before it explodes into a burst of fire and debris. She quickly scans the horizon looking for Das. She sees the Togruta’s ship is about to meet the same fate. The X-Wing begins turning into two approaching TIEs. The three ships collide into an massive fireball. Floating through space, TIE fighters swooping around her, Sam slows her breathing.

“This is how I die?” she thinks as she closes her eyes.

She is sitting at that small cafe with Elam. He offers her the fork to share the disgusting dessert she tricked him into getting. She walks over beside him and playfully smears a small amount on his face. He looks up at her causing her to giggle. Elam gets ready to say something as she moves her finger to his mouth. She wipes the food from his lips and slowly leans her face down to his.

A shrill beeping erupts in her ear. She knows it’s meaning…she’s been waiting for it for the last minute…her oxygen supply is running out. She opens her eyes and confirms this on her heads up display. Her eyes focus on her surroundings now. She sees weird shapes twisting in the blackness and then her eyes fill with a white light.

Cyrene last journal entry, maybe

Cyrene has managed to get herself into even a worse fate then last time and might cost her the order and possible prison. Cyrene in no small terms has manage to land herself in a maximum-security cell quite an achievement for a nine-year-old. If that was not enough of a display out of control rage she has pretty much got herself stuck in almost a coma like state.

Cyrene emotions in these few hours have been all over the place from utter hatred to apathy. Cyrene has shown the group just how violent she can without any weapon besides hers fist and her force abilities. Cyrene might have told the grand master she would stay on the ship as the others went to the planet. However, once Cyrene realized that her owner was close she had a brief internal struggle on what to do but her hatred won out.

This proceed to lead to a very violent event, though Durak or her old slave owner has been an evil man what she did is pretty messed up regardless her motivations. Cyrene in her mood managed to broad the nearly by ship and then proceeded to sneak into a very heavy secure area of the ship where she was not allowed. Though her emotions at the time was simple she was driven by her rage and not even her training was going to hold it back.

Cyrene then managed to steal a guard key so that she could get to the room were her old owner was. Once again, she was mainly focused on her rage but also was surprised she could manage it as well. The real icing on the cake in this case was when she got into his room and her raw fury took complete control. Cyrene enter the room with fist blazing and struck her old owner and smash him so hard that his eyes rolled in the back of his head from the punch. Cyrene feelings at that moment were a mixture or rage and pleasure as she was returning his pain that he had put on her all her life, but she wanted him to suffer.

As Cyrene was attacking Durak and he reeled from the punch she checked with the force to see if he was dead or not she sensed a pulse. Cyrene tried at that moment to see if she could regain control but once more rage was in charge and she still could not let the memory go he needed to die. The next punch instead of landing on him smashed her classmate Booh in the face. Cyrene felt at this moment even more rage and sadness she only wanted to kill Durak, but she could not stop herself. Cyrene then felt a shock through her side as the guards in this place where now reacting to what she was doing and slammed a shock prod onto her. Booh when out like a light but Cyrene almost did not feel them from her current frenzy state. Cyrene once more fought for control but lost to rage again and she figured to achieve her revenge she need to attack the guards.

Cyrene was gearing herself to tackle one of the guards, but she felt the force being used against her she tried to resist but it was the grand-master, so she lost the fight and was knocked out. Cyrene came to in heavy restraints and an energy box she was not going anywhere. The grand-master came in and he seem disappointed and they a short chat but once he mentions that she was to be judged by the masters on Yavin it got even worse for her. What she was feeling after waking up from her assault she was completely apathetic towards what he was saying but once she heard she might end like Dal panic set in.

What proceed once the grand-master had left was her in a panic of her trying to break free which she could not do. She tried hard to break her restrains but could not and made enough of a noise the guard came in and injected a heavy stim into her, but it did nothing. Cyrene mind was a blaze with what little she could do if she was kicked none of these were pleasant. Cyrene concluded that to avoid the fate she had made for herself was to die and she convinced the guard to give her a very heavy dosage of the stim, but she did not die instead she is stuck in a state of being aware and unable to do anything. Cyrene now feels like she is coming apart and the words of K’kruhk seem almost prophetic at this point.

Even now she can feel the rage it is barely below the surface of her being. Cyrene does not want to admit that she barely is in control or that her rage is controlling her. The only thing she can think to do now is somehow talk or confront her own rage she will try to go into a deep meditation and see if she can regain herself or lose herself to rage that is now threating to consume her.

A Disturbing Dream
A Shared Force Vision

The students are en route to meet Grandmaster Skywalker to aide negotiations for the New Republic with the Muunilist Banking Clan. Their last week of sleep has been plagued by unrest. The last night before arriving outside of the Mygeeto system is the most disturbing of all.

The group seems to have a similarly dark and foreboding dream where the face of an unknown Humanoid is twisted and contorted in pain with a blur of glowing plasma, durasteel walls, and heavy machinery in the background.

Cyrene journal part 10

Well the adventure to Iluim was more action packed then Cyrene was looking forward too. The ship that she and the student had called home for the past few months was shot out of the sky and had crashed to the frozen surface. Cyrene and friends were able to leave the burning wreck and managed to find a cave to hide in. Cyrene however ended up getting herself injured as she could hear the cries of people outside the cave being torn to pieces, so she starts to venture out of the cave to see what was doing this. Cyrene ended finding a large creature as it enters the cave and she got clawed for her trouble.

Cyrene was hurt by the creature and after that close encounter she was not keen to be in a fight after that she was treated by her comrades and mainly stay backed. Cyrene was beginning to realize she really did not have a place as she did not have her saber and the rifle could not fill that void. Cyrene thought to herself that she must be careful here as this place was crawling with remnant, but she also did not want to kill anyone either. As the group found where the signal for the other Jedi was coming from Cyrene without her saber took point as look out and noticed a group of heavily armed storm troopers.

Cyrene hoped that maybe this fight could be talk out, but no Elam started the fight and without her saber Cyrene ran away as her rifle was not good in this fight. Cyrene ended up just climbing up the nearby com tower as there was nothing else for her too do. Cyrene ended up wandering towards the nearby landing pad and looking around and she spied a transport, Cyrene felt that this could help the group and when over to it and got inside unfortunately a patrol of ties noticed her and they started strafing the pad. While this was going she heard from the group that they had found the Jedi and a few others as well.

Cyrene felt uneasy as the tie keep coming back and hit the pad and the com tower, so she ended getting the gun system on the transport, but she hoped she could scare them off and managed to damage several ties but nope. Cyrene ended getting grief from the other as Elam notice she was not destroying the flying ties. There was a bit of argument on the coms from others about what she was doing, Cyrene was stern on not wanting to kill any of these fighter till she did as it was bound to happen.

Cyrene felt disgusted at doing that and ended walking off the transport and a nearby star destroyer came into low orbit to bring its guns to bear. Cyrene ended running back to where the group was as she knew what was going to happen and figured that she must help get the folks out. Cyrene seemed to be unbothered as she picked up the folks from the boxes and hauled them off. This ended being a life or death run from the death from above, if Cyrene had any emotions on this she did not show them more then need to help these folks was present than anything else.

Once, Cyrene was aboard the shuttle that picked them up she was able to breath and think normal as this was not as bad as the run from earlier. Once the group was brought aboard the republic cruiser and there was a sense of normalcy, Cyrene began to think on what she had done, and she felt a mix of things as she lived through the encounter but felt bad about the tie she destroyed. Cyrene felt that the others would not understand as she did not feel comfortable about explaining why she did not have her saber and the mere thought of K’kruhk made her feel her anger pick up at the thought of him.

Cyrene ended just burying her anger as this was not the time for it. The cruiser that she was now in had lost a wing of fighters protecting them as they left the planet. On top of it seemed the order was not doing to well and that her and group and the grandmaster seemed to be the only ones of the order active right now considering all that was going on

I Hope This Communication Reaches You
A Message to Elam Wren

The holovid message, dated one week ago, was recorded in the communications room of the Yavin IV Jedi Praxeum. C4-JA presses a few buttons then steps aside to reveal a well dressed, middle-aged, dark haired woman.

“There you go, ma’am. It is recording and broadcasting for you.”

“Su cuy’gar. Wooba soosa Neassa Wren and this message is for my ad, Elam. We have been attempting to contact you for months now. After speaking with your droid and reviewing the communication records here, it is my suspicion that these messages were intercepted by an outside group.”

The look on the woman’s face is stern and full of worry and stress. This is reflected in her voice as she continues to speak.

“Cuun yaim on Krownest was attacked by a clan of honorless Mandalorian mercenaries. We were able to hold them at bay…”

Her brief pause feels like a lifetime.

“A single one of these Hu’tuun came under werda and took kaysh. Your clan needs you. The request is simple. Bring your verdas… find and bring back my mesh’la ad… Jurk’adir and kyr’amur those fools. Return with the hu’tuun’s tal on gar beskargam. Re’turcye mhi.”

The transmission ends.

Declaration From Empress Teta
An Announcement Of Jedi Treachery

The holovid reads “Nobility Of Core World Detains Jedi Saboteurs”. Pictured is a well dressed woman in front of a capital building.

“We will not tolerate this type of action from the so-called emissaries of the New Republic. Twice in the last few months, we have captured these individuals on our planet without proper diplomatic credentials attempting to infiltrate one of our government buildings. They have attacked government personnel, destroyed government property and will be held here to stand trial for these actions, as the terrorists that they are!”, the woman states.

The holovid switches to images of three individuals in police custody. A male and female human and a large white furred Whiphid.

Cyrene journal part 9
The trip for Illum was a longer trip then the one to Brentaal. So, Cyrene decide to mess around with the equipment that she had bought for herself while on planet side beside her rifle since she did not want a ricochet to doing damage to the ship with a metal slug. The first piece of equipment she started messing with was her thermal cloak and found it was comfy to wear or use as a blanket.

As the journey went on Cyrene had messed with all her equipment baring the air rifle as that would either take out her eye or something in the ship. Cyrene also during this time did her normal meditation but was in her tent while she did as it other a sense of isolation from the cargo bay and the ship. Though the tent did not have its own bed Cyrene ended sleeping in it for the rest of the trip as she felt it was nice way to distant herself from her other friends.

Cyrene may have been still pissed about what K’kruhk had told her, but she did figure that she needed to be away as a safeguard. Cyrene did think on what K’kruhk but she did not believe she could be capable of what he had said as she was not strong in the force. Cyrene ended up shelving these thoughts as they did not help her or how she felt about him either which was bad too.

As they neared their destination Cyrene felt a mixture of relieve and uneasiness. Cyrene would be happy to get off the ship, but this was not a paradise it was an ice planet with a strong remnant presence. Cyrene hope that maybe this would not have to end in violence, but she knew that would not be true. Cyrene knew that they would run into other living beings and even with her new choice of armament it could kill even if it did not have the power of a lightsaber.

Cyrene was hoping she did not have to take a life even though she hated both K’kruhk and her former owner. Hated might have been a strong word for how she felt about K’kruhk but the same could not be said about how she felt about her owner. While she thought on the issue she wondered what she was going to do now considering K’krukh comments made her wary of other Jedi outside of her friends. Cyrene ended up shelving these thought as well to be able to sleep as they were near the planet and she knew that she needed her sleep.

Cyrene journal part 8

The trip from Ossus to Brentaal has not been a fun one for Cyrene. Too begin with Cyrene still had guilty from when she attacked Booh. Cyrene at first just try to stay in a more peaceful state but when she would think about it and she thought about her owner there when that idea.

Cyrene for most of the trip was mainly to herself either meditating or trying to read up on some lore. Cyrene for the time she was alone tired to think of the good times she had wither with friends or family. Though no matter how much she tired to not think about she would always find herself thinking on her attack on Booh and what she nearly did.

Cyrene then figured that she might as well talk to the Jedi master they picked surely, he could help her. This didn’t end well, instead of the help she sought from him she lost her saber and her pride was injured quiet badly. K’kruhk made it clear that she should never have been trained and she would not get her saber back until she acted like a true Jedi.

Cyrene was heart broken after her encounter with K’kruhk. After he had locked himself in the cockpit, Cyrene dusted herself off and walked off toward her bunk but not before doing a strange gesture with her Lekku’s she seem to make a stab motion with both of them. Cyrene then for what was left of the trip basically lived in her bunk. Cyrene for the second since joining the order found something else to hate not a good thing to develop a list like this. Though as the days when bye she seemed to calm down a little on the issue.

Though the real break for her came when they landed on the planet. Cyrene was happy that she could finely leave the small space of the ship and explore a bit. Cyrene had been informed that they had some spending money and Cyrene when about figuring out what she would get. Cyrene when back to the data pad on Illum and from there drew up a list of things she needed for that place.

Cyrene then went about asking the ship droid for direction to a few shops to know where to go as she had never been to this world before. The droid gave her the intel she needed so she headed off the ship but not before seeing K’kruhk. As she when bye Cyrene made the same gesture she had before with her Lekku’s and saying something in her native language as she when bye. Cyrene then walked off the ship and proceed to head out to directions given to her by the droid.

Though Cyrene first stop was not a critical one, as she when to a sweets shop and ate quite a bit made a bit of a scene too. Afterwards Cyrene casual strolled in a gun store and bought herself and air rifle too make sure she felt comfortable with it she went to the range in the back to test fire it. Though in that place you could not hear her rifle being fired she got quite a few stares in her from folks seeing a child by herself in a range. A few of the other customers approached her to see if she was lost or anything though she stayed calmed and explained that she was just out shopping, and her ship was not to far from here. As she was almost out of the door she bought some extra ammo just in case and asked for a sling to make it easy for her carry the rifle.

Cyrene then when over to a sport supply store to get a few more things. So, she went about getting a portable tent, a backpack in white and a thermal cloak in white as she knew her and cold weather not going to be easy. She then when to pay the rest of her supplies and then loaded them in her new backpack.

Cyrene then went back to the ship with her supplies and happily did not run into K’kruhk again. Cyrene then when to her bunk but was unable to sleep from the sugar rush she had from all those sweets she had eaten. Cyrene was up for most of the night and then was able to sleep in the small hours of the morning.

The second day for Cyrene was also nice as she left early in the morning to explore around. Cyrene had a reference point just in case she got lost the hanger where the ship was not to far from the gun shop. Cyrene after a few hours of wandering when to the sweets shop again and this time restrained herself but still ate quite a bit. Cyrene then ventured off to the to gun store again this time seeing the owner asked if she could use the range she payed a small fee and was once again shooting down range.

Cyrene found the experience as way to channel her anger and most recent loss and found for the time there she was calm. A few other the other customers notice her and saw how bad of a shot she was, so they showed her how to aim and fire with the weapon. Though they were strangers to her it made her happy to have others help her and almost forget about the incident with K’kruhk.

Cyrene then headed back to the ship but once she saw K’kruhk she really did not want to go back. She also noticed Tionne another student from the temple, but she really did not want to talk to her or be near K’kruhk. So, she turned around and began walking away from this, so she walked off. She walked for a way and found a nice restaurant and had a nice meal there. Cyrene then when back to the ship when it was late.

Message From Tionne

I have been informed that you have completed your mission on Ossus and are heading to Ilum to determine the whereabouts of Harlan and Madurrin. I urge you to take great care. If there is any truth to this Imperial project that is being conducted you may have your hands full.

I have been informed that I will be meeting you in order to pick up a passenger who will then accompany me to Empress Teta to help rescue Kam Solusar. From Yavin, it will take me 27.25 days to arrive. I will rendezvous with you at the main spaceport on Brentaal then. Safe travels and may The Force be with you.
