For Cyrene, this was another change to her life but a positive one she hoped. When she boarded the transport at the star port she was not the only one and noticed there was a Human Named Elam Wren , a Gungan named Booh , a Zeltron named Sam and a Zabrak name Vrar and a Togruta Named Dasvee. At first Cyrene really did not talk until the Zeltron name of Sam asked what their abilities where and she saw the human after a while of trying made a small object float. Cyrene then introduced herself and used her ability to run around the inside of transport at speed.
Cyrene then heard from the Dasvee seating in one of the seats that she should not have done that. Cyrene did not know how to take that but then decide to go talk to the pilot she asked the droid in the front of the Cabin if she could see the pilot. The droid said that she could and what did she want to do she answer to run around the droid said no.
The transport ended up jumping to new system and as they approached this planet of green the droid began to tell the passengers about the planet below. For Cyrene this was as boring as listening to paint drying and it took all her willpower to learn and retain what it was saying. Once the droid was done speaking the transport landed on this giant Pyramid it stuck out amongst the jungle.
The place was truly massive as we walked out of transport and on the landing deck of this place Booh and one of the other students ended up running out of the transport. It was there in the middle of the landing area was the grand master Luke Skywalker as we were told. He welcomed and the class and such he made a impression with everybody. When he was done speaking Cyrene asked a question that got everybody attention, she asked if they messed would they discipline with Neuro whips which caused a shock look from quite a few people. the grand master said no and if she need to talk with someone about in private.
They were also other students there that took are bags and such too are rooms if we wanted too. Cyrene then asked the question if these where real bed too another gasp from the students and was told yes. The class then when on a tour on the massive structure which took a few hours, Cyrene had not been in such a large single building before and it was something interesting seeing all the different levels and rooms. She also notices while on tour another alien and had a kid moment much to the annoyance of the other student. When she was in her group of students she asked if she had done something wrong on the transport since Dasvee had told she should not have done that.
When the tour was done she was in the great hall with all the students when of the other students came in and introduced himself. She did not catch his name but explained that she had tapped into the dark side when she used her ability and that it was not necessary a bad thing but she need to only use it when she had no choice she nodded kind of understanding. She then noticed all the food that they had here it was truly amazing form the rations she was used to. She ended besides eating her full looking around to see the other students see her fellows from the transport but there were no other of her Species.
When they were told it was bed time she when to her room. Cyrene was not used to being in a room with a real bed or just another person here. She was more use to sleeping outside in the cold or in a very cramp run with ten other people. As much as Cyrene wanted to sleep she could not old habit die hard and she was just waiting for a call in the middle of the to do something.
When she awoke next morning, she wandered outside to the obstacle course and saw the Human Elam wren out there already as well as instructor and grand master. Cyrene then Filed in behind Elam near the starting line as more students began to show up. Cyrene Noticed Dasvee out the group and she look surprised that she was not the first one here. When everybody showed the instructed told the class that they could start the course. When Cyrene heard this took off like a shot tapping into the force but once again she only felt the dark side answer her call and she used it. She notices the first challenge was a steep incline but she was easily able to do as was Elam and Booh. Cyrene noticed that Dasvee was having trouble and she ran back to help even though Dasvee really did not want Cyrene help.
The obstacle course was a challenge but for Cyrene with using her ability could do it. She was the first to complete it but was the second but the whole time every time she called to the force for help the dark side was the only thing that came to her and she used it. During the course both booh and the rest of the class save Elam did not seem to get through the course. When Cyrene was at the finish line one of the other classmates put his hand on her should. Cyrene first responded with I am going to be punished for using the dark side. The student said no but they would help her to work on this.
The next task that they gave them was to meditate which to Cyrene seemed strange. Unlike the rest of her classmate she could not quiet her mind to meditate. The instructor said it was fine and she would get it in time. Then it was meal time and Cyrene just wolfed down her food before asking what was she supposed to do but they said it was free time. Cyrene really did not understand the meaning of that so just milled around for a while but unsure what to do.
The next task the class did was to pair up with the older students and the older students had pict screens with them. They were told to use the force to be able to tell what was picture that the student had hidden from sight. Cyrene had trouble with this as she was trying to read the surface thoughts of the older student in front of her. In the practice, she got 3 out of 5 objects but once again she tapped into the dark side but also the light side which was different.
Cyrene at the time then when she came back from her group noticed Dashvee and asked her how she did and she said she got it all right. Cyrene responded with 3 out of 5 but at lease she was not hit for it. Dasvee said didn’t they say they don’t do that here Cyrene was not really listening. After this event, they when to the night meal and when that was through they when to bed.
This time Cyrene could sleep which was good for tomorrow. When Cyrene woke up see she went to the obstacle course Elam was there before her. As the rest of the class arrived they gathered near the starting line. When the instructor told them to begin Cyrene took off like a shot and started running the course at good speed. This time she felt both the light and the dark and was first one done this time. This time she was also able to meditate which was good from the other day.
When they broke for meal this time she once again wolfed down her food. However, during meal time heard a squabble between one of the more advanced students and a couple of the masters and Cyrene and Elam wonder over to that direction. The master did not seem too happy about us coming closer and listening too there conservation. Once again Cyrene condition did not do her any favors as she asked if they want her to fight storm troopers. The master said no and she just walked back to her table.
After the meal, she once again just milled around unsure what to do with her “Free Time.” As we walked over to the training areas we say an area with a bunch of rocks but where also near the duel rings and we heard a few of the more advance student sparing so we head over to the ring. There we saw these advance students going at it and Elam named of the fighting style they were doing. This seem to draw the rest of the attention of the group and somehow, he ended up in the ring with a more advanced student.
Elam managed to hold his own and beta the other students this got most of the crowd in the ring excited. However, it drew the attention of the student from morning meal. Now Elam was in a duel with Dal Konur another advanced student. The fight at this point had many people chanting and excited from the spectacle. Though as the fight dragged on Cyrene figure she would be called up next though she really did not want to. The fight though drew out the worst as Elam nearly hit the student with a blow normally reserved for battle but stopped just short from delivering it. This met the ire of the master. Dal on the other snapped and with the force threw Elam against the wall in a fit of rage. Cyrene responded by jumping into the ring and punching Dal in the stomach. Dal realized what he just did and took off in a burst of speed out of the area.
Cyrene and the rest of the students jumped in the ring to make sure he was alright. When Elam came too, Cyrene asked him if he still alive he respond to it. He was taken to get some medical treatment from inside the temple. When Cyrene was sure Elam was fine she joined in the search for Kal. Cyrene did not have much success and instead was attack but an angler, it managed to snag her for a bit and do some damage before she remembers from the brief they only go after things close to the water and was able to run away from it. she did not give trying to find him but even with her will could not find him but one of the other students found her and patched her up.
Cyrene was not exactly happy on how it turned out but she when back to the temple. There at evening meal the mood had change with the student not being found and it was a somber event. Cyrene proclaimed when they found Kal she was going to punch him which got a few of the student annoyed with her outburst.
The student that when by the name of Kyp Durron told her that she needed to release her anger as it was not going to help. She said that be better to just sit on the anger at hand but Kyp said no if you keep storing your anger you will eventually go and it will not be good. After the meal Kyp worked with Cyrene to help her release her anger and frustration. Kyp could not believe for as young she was the amount of swore words she knew but was able to mostly defuse that anger.
Afterwards Cyrene when to bed and awake the next morning to her morning routine. The temple still had that somber feeling to it as nobody had been able to find Kal. Cyrene was still annoyed she had tried to find him and had only been rewarded by being attack by the local creatures. As she did the obstacle course she still had this tad bit of anger left and drew on both light and dark side again but finished the course. She could meditate but that anger was still there.
This time they also when to ring where they had been before but instead when to where the stone where piled and told to use to force to pick these small rocks. The first time Cyrene tired still with that little spark of anger she called to the rock and it came to her but in the way, she wanted and instead it cut her a bit. Cyrene heard a few of the students crack a laugh and it took all her willpower to not go over there. This time she focused herself on the rock and managed to not only move one but several rocks and stack them.
This time for the meal she still wolfed down her food but this time when looking for Kyp. When she found him, she said she still had some anger and could not get rid of it Kyp, had an idea. Kyp and Cyrene when down to the sparing ring were Kyp, told Cyrene to fight and not hold anything back and use the force in the fight. Cyrene at first felt joy from the fight as way to expanded her anger and frustration. At the end of their sparing match Cyrene felt at peace and the anger was gone. Kyp told her if she ever need help again just ask, she thanked him.
This time they when into the training arena and their staffs from which we could pick to train with. Cyrene noticed Elam got a very specific one where she just grabbed one of the wrack. master Katarn pared up the class with each other in what would be a fair fight. This was practice of simple lightsaber combat to get the class use to swing and parrying. Cyrene was paried against Dasvee, Elam against Vrar, and Booh against Sam. Cyrene and Dasvee could spare perfectly together with the staffs same could not be said for Elam. Elam was too good and knocked out Vrar on accident. Mater Katarn then told Elam to switch partners and got Sam instead. He also bested her and smacked her in the face she when down once again not like he was trying to hurt his classmates. Then Booh when up against him and he knocked her out.
Master Katarn told the class they could stop and that he had underestimated Elam. For Cyrene, it was fun time she had with Dasvee. Master Katarn said that next time he would get a more advanced student to spare with Elam since it was his bad on the parring’s.
