  1. Ready, aim, FIRE!

    "Well, well, it looks like there is a gathering going on," Char said with a smirk on his face. He had taken a walk in the fields to relax. 'Nothing like a good stroll!' he had thought as he walked out of the enclave. He had mostly been thinking about his last mission when he stumbled upon Magnus talking to a woman. He waited for a moment, hearing them talking, before making his presence known. "I don't believe we've met before," Char said to the woman, most likely a smuggler based on the way she was clothed. He put on a charming smile. Char made sure to exude an air of confidence; he was quite skilled at that, having gotten a nobleman's training on etiquette when he was still young back on Onderon and being naturally confident. He made a slight bow as a gesture of respect, all part of his theatrical. "Name is Char. What might be yours?" He paused for a brief moment. Char was interested in refining his blaster skills. He had used blaster before but he did not have much training in it. If he could watch Magnus and that woman and carefully observe and study them, he could catch up a thing or two, which could prove useful in the future. "I hope you don't mind me watching you training? I haven't handled a gun in quite a while..."
  2. Nurture

    Char was in his cabin. He had finished reading the datapad regarding Telos' history and was now reading his book on military strategies. He hoped that it would get him through the journey as he would be quite bored with nothing to do. "Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat," he read. That was the title of the first chapter. Not many Jedi initiates studied military texts; most of them would study more about the Force or lightsaber techniques. Yet Char saw the value in learning about strategic planning. Such knowledge could be practical in non-military situations too.
  3. Nurture

    Char greeted Padawan Aine with a slight bow and a smile on his face. "Greetings. I am pleased to meet you." Char then looked briefly around the ship and went to his cabin. He did not have any questions to ask nor he wanted to waste any time talking; his greeting was simply a formality. Instead, he decided to read a datapad he had brought with him. It was a text regarding the history of Telos written by a Jedi master. Char wanted to know more about the planet where they were going. Once he finished reading that datapad, he would read another one, a military strategy text known as 'The Ten Strategies'. Although the text concerned itself with how to successfully conduct a war, many of its lessons and strategies could be adapted to single combat. Char assumed that by the time he had finished reading those texts, they would have reached Telos. Otherwise he would simply relax and allow himself to rest.
  4. Nurture

    "Did you bring spare robes with you? These might get ruined since Telos is more or less... a swamp." "I did bring a spare robe," Char said. "I am not that worried about the robe though; I have more than enough money to buy another one if needed." Char remained silent while the rest talked. He knew that silence was wiser than talking without thinking. Char was pleased to hear about the darksider. If they really did have to face a darksider, Char could claim credit and get on the good side of the Council. He could also use this chance to test his skills and see how much he had improved.
  5. Nurture

    Char had been notified to meet Jun Lee, peacekeeper commander, for a mission to Telos for relief work. This was a disciplinary action of sorts. Char knew that he had to perform well in that mission if he was to regain the favor of the Council and prove himself. He was therefore determined to present himself as honorably as possible and act in the most virtuous manner. He had to hide his true feelings for the moment and put on the mask of the redeemed, virtuous Jedi. He had gotten his lesson about the negative consequences of speaking his mind and losing his temper. Char wasn't wearing his usual dark jedi robe. As he needed to make a good impression, he instead wore a newly bought long silk purple robe that was decorated with embroidery. Although it was somewhat extravagant and the Jedi greatly discouraged such displays of luxury, Char cared more about charming his superiors with such displays than following to the letter Jedi ethics. As soon as he arrived and saw the commander, he bowed slightly as a gesture of respect. When he was still a boy in Onderon, he was taught how to behave as a proper aristocrat. It was all part of the training of young noblemen. Although many years had passed since, he hadn't forgotten those lessons and he still retained both the air of confidence and the arrogance of a nobleman. "I respectfully greet you," he said. He smiled as charmingly as he could. "I have to say that I am especially pleased to have been assigned in this mission with you. I've heard a great deal about you, all good I assure you, thus I am truly honored to be under your command. I hope that I will prove myself to be useful." All this time, he was standing with his shoulders straight and with an air of confidence in him. Although he was trying to be respectful and charming, he didn't want this to be misinterpreted as slavish behavior. He was an aristocrat after all. Char was happy with himself; he had rehearsed those lines more than a few times and all the details of his greeting had been planned ahead so as to make the best impression. He had played the role of the gentleman-virtuous Jedi with success. 'If my performance is equally good during the duration of the mission, I shall regain the trust of the Council in no time,' he thought. 'After all, Jedi do love stories about redemption...'
  6. Char sighed. He knew that this would happen. "I did warn you that those caves are off limits for a reason. We should run and escape. We are no match for them. I have memorized the way through which we came, so we should have no trouble finding our way out of this place." Char held his training blade in his hands. While it wasn't much of a weapon, it still was something. He could use it to parry any attacks, although hopefully he would not have to actually use it. He could still remember the first time he had encountered the Kinrath. They poisoned him and he had been able to survive only thanks to Homra. Now, there was no true Jedi here to aid them so making a quick escape seemed to be the most sensible course of action for Char
  7. Carry On Wayward Son

    Char did not take well Iman's speech. He viewed it as yet another insult. Not only was he to stay in the hangar, but he was also lectured about 'underestimating'. He had grown more and more angry with the way Iman constantly lectured him and Homra kept rejecting his suggestions, yet he tried to keep himself from expressing his frustration. He forced a smile but he could barely hide his annoyance. In his eyes, one could see his cold stare. "Very well, I shall remain here.", he calmly replied although he was boiling with anger on the inside. "I am an aristocrat and fetching cubes is beneath me. That is work fit for slaves. So I am glad you are offering to go instead." He then turned his back to Homra and Iman, making sure that they both knew that he viewed them as social inferiors. Char, being son of a most famous aristocrat, always was arrogant but he did try not to show it. Now however in his anger he revealed his true thoughts. As Homra and Iman made their way to fetching the cubes, Char waited with Mirran for Homra's signal. He was growing more impatient and angry by the moment. He was nervously walking up and down. 'At the very least', he thought, 'I might be able to steal some of the cubes when Homra brings them here.' He was also thinking about his place in the order. He always had doubts but now he was certain that he would not remain for long in the Order. All his instructors were treating him with suspicion back in the enclave and here they kept treating him as if he was a nobody. Char could remember clearly his life in Onderon, where as son of a nobleman he was respected by everyone. If his father had not sent him in the Order, he could still be enjoying that respect. He sighed.
  8. Will be posting replies in threads tomorrow. Had German exams, so in the past few days I was too busy to reply but now I have plenty of free time.

      Oooh German...no worries....

  9. "So, we shall be going down the right corridor?", Char asked. "I say that we get going. You first, of course." Char was cautious as ever. He knew pretty well that the path ahead could be dangerous, so he didn't want to be the one going first. But Char also smiled all this time. He had managed to get the crystals and so this trip could be classified as a success from his point of view. He was already thinking of how he was going to use the crystals. He could barely conceal his excitement. He hoped to construct two lightsabers.
  10. Carry On Wayward Son

    When Homra mentioned the Flesh Raiders, Char had to force himself not to smile. They provided an excellent opportunity for him and could be used to his advantage. While Homra was telling the group about the raiders, Char exuded a sense of calmness and confidence. 'It seems that the Force is on my side...', he thought. "We need a distraction, but not something that'd have the whole tribe storming in and eating us. I could sneak off on my own and get there, but I can't really bring all the data cubes and crystals from the second floor to outside. If anyone has ideas though, now would be a good time to share them." "I say that we split.", Char said. "Me and you can try to sneak and bring the data cubes while the rest try to distract the Flesh Raiders. That way, we can bring the data cubes without alerting the raiders or having to fight them. While the raiders may notice if a whole group of people try to sneak into the map room, I doubt they would notice just the two of us. Mirran's idea seems to be a good way for the rest of the group to distract them while we two sneak into the map room." Char paused for a moment. "As for why it should be me coming with you to the map room.... well, due to her Force sight, I believe that Mirran is best suited with observing the raiders and trying to find a way to implement her plan. Iman would be easily noticed, so she too shouldn't be the one to sneak with you. Yusan should remain here in case the plan does not work and the raiders are alerted to Mirran's and Iman's presence; it would be unwise to leave behind only a padawan and initiates in a dangerous place. You also cannot get all the data cubes on your own, as you've already said. So, the natural choice would be for me to accompany you to the room." Of course, the reason Char wanted to sneak alone with Homra to the map room was because he wanted to obtain data cubes for himself. If there was only one other person in the room, and they were in a hurry, then that person would not notice that Char was keeping some of the data cubes for himself. Char hoped that Homra would accept his plan; he had tried to use all his rhetorical skills in trying to persuading him. If Homra rejected his plan though, he would have to find a way to alert the Flesh Raiders in order to cause a distraction that would allow him to steal the data cubes. Either way, Char wasn't going to give up on his quest, even if it meant alerting a dangerous and bloodthirsty tribe of their whereabouts. He hadn't come all this way to return empty handed.
  11. Char could tell that Mirran was annoyed at him. He took a deep breath and calmed down. He then said, "I am sorry. It wasn't my intention to make this trip unpleasant." He then smiled. He hoped that this would make the atmosphere less tense and would change the mood. Soon, they found themselves looking at two paths. Char thought for a while. Both paths entailed risk. If they made the wrong choice, they could be in serious danger. "I say that we follow the first path. Or we could always split. What do you say?"
  12. Char sighed. He had hoped that Mirran would understand his actions. Silent, he followed her and Magnus towards the waterfall. His face was devoid of any emotions but he was angry that his plan did not go as planned; now both Magnus and Mirran knew that he had the crystals and could talk about it to the Masters. He hoped that they would not do so. For a moment he considered the possibility of attacking them right now to make sure that they would not talk, but he quickly dismissed this idea; Magnus was better Force user than him and he considered Mirran to be a friend. Still, Char wanted to make sure that neither of them would speak about this trip. "You know", he said, breaking his silence, "I am pretty sure that the Masters aren't going to be pleased that we undertook this trip. So it would be a good idea not to talk about it. There is no need to stir trouble for no reason, is there? If no one asks any questions, there is no need to tell anyone about our trip to this cave."
  13. Char smiled. "Thanks.", he said as he took in his hands the crystal handed to him by Mirran. "Those two crystals should be enough, I guess. I do not think I will need any more crystals, for now at least." Char paused for a moment. "I have to be honest, I did not expect you to be so understanding. Thank you." Char placed the crystal to his backpack, alongside the other one, and then said, "Now, shall we get going to your waterfall?". Char wasn't very interested in the waterfall; personally, now that he had the crystals, he would prefer to leave before any Kinrath or some other dangerous creature would cause them trouble. But since the others wanted to go to the waterfall, he decided to agree to their request. He did not want to cause more friction between them.
  14. Char sighed. He wasn't going to give up on the crystals though. "Well, if you wish to remain with me, fine. However, please stay out of my way. Most importantly; do not interfere with my business." Char was going to proceed to finding the crystals; he did not care about some rumored waterfall. Char allowed himself to feel his surroundings and sense the crystals. He walked ahead, following the same route he and Homra had taken when he had first come to these caves. He had memorized that route in case he needed to come back. While his mastery of the Force was only average, his memory was pretty good. Char did not care if Mirran and Magnus were following him or not. Even if they did, he wasn't going to give up on his plans. He was pretty sure that neither of them would want the Masters to know about this expedition, so neither would report him. He soon reached the place where Homra had brought him for his meditation. Crystals were dotting at the walls and ceilings. They emitted a bright glow. Char could feel the powers of the crystals as he approached them. This time, Char was better able to hide his emotions so that they did not affect most of the crystals but one of them did start to bleed, just like the last time he had been here. "Well, here we are. The crystals! Now, if you will all excuse me, I have work to do. It will not take long. And, please, do not cause any trouble. We do not need any infighting in a cave filled with Kinrath, do we?" He approached a crystal; a green one. He then reached to his backpack and grabbed a small hammer he had brought with him. Char then tried slowly but steadily to remove the crystal, making sure that it was not damaged. Once he did, he placed it on his backpack. "Two more and we can then go search for your waterfall.", he remarked with a smile on his face.
  15. Char wasn't pleased with Mirran and Magnus. He needed to be alone if he was going to snatch some crystals. He couldn't have the others bother him or, worse, notify any Jedi Master about his activities. "You can go ahead.", Char said. "I will follow you shortly. No need to worry about me; I can handle myself. It is not the first time I have been in these caves and, quite frankly, I do not believe that if Kinrath do appear you will be of any help. Also, Mirran, you are not responsible for me. I am responsible for my actions. Need I remind you that I am older than you? I am older than Magnus too. As the oldest one here, I know how to handle myself." Char paused for a moment. "After all, I will be here for only a few minutes. I will join you shortly. I insist strongly about it." Char made sure that he left no room for misinterpretations. "Now, please, go ahead. In a moment or two, I will be with you. Hopefully you will have found the waterfall by the time I join you." Char softened his expression a bit. "Be careful though. If you do see a Kinrath, do not try to be heroes. Fleeing is the best option."
