  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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."
  4. "You should go ahead and search for the waterfall.", Char said. He wanted Mirran and Magnus to leave him alone with the crystals. That way, he would have an easier time attaining them. "I will remain here for a while to rest. I will be joining you soon though." Char put up a smile as he talked and tried to look as sincere as possible.
  5. Char simply smiled. He had expressed a similar view on the Force himself, that Jedi should use their emotions when in danger to strengthen themselves, and he had gotten into a debate about it. Needless to say that this debate did not end well, especially after Char bragged about having read Sith philosophical texts. Nevertheless, Char found it to be intellectually stimulating; he loved rhetoric and philosophical debates. "Trust me, it is better to keep such views to yourself. Although I have to admit that arguing with Giran was fun."
  6. Carry On Wayward Son

    Char had made his way to the hangar. He had almost fallen but thankfully he had avoided a possibly dangerous fall. The hangar was empty. To Char's delight, there seemed to be no Flesh Raiders around. Char wasn't very thrilled with the prospect of fighting them. Yet he was thrilled with the prospect of taking one or more Jedi artifacts with him. Now was his chance to put his plan into action. He was going to be cautious; he did not allow himself to think about what he was going to do and his face had a bland expression. He had learned how to hide his emotions from others. Homra spoke and explained to them what they were going to do. He then asked them if they had any questions. "I do have a question.", Char said. "What exactly does the map room contain? Aside from maps that is..."
  7. Char followed Mirran and Magnus into the cave. He knew better than to be overexcited. The cave was off limits for initiates for a reason. Char knew only too well the danger of Kinrath. He was in the cave for the crystals, not to get killed. Magnus and Mirran did tease him for his cautiousness. "I am alive", he replied to Mirran, "and I would like to remain that way." Char was cautious of his surroundings. He was looking around and moving slowly, silently. His expression was serious. He was studying the place, memorizing it in case he needed to make a fast retreat or if he had to come back some other time. "Making lots of noise in a place filled with Kinrath is not the best way to proceed.", he said. "Alerting your enemy of your movements is the best way to end up injured or worse. This place is off limits for a reason. Caution is necessary in such a situation." As Char walked forward, he could feel the crystals. He didn't show it and his face was bland but he felt a sense of delight that he was so close to acquiring a few crystals. He would grab one or two for personal use and another crystal to be kept in case of an emergency. He knew that he could make a good price out of it; if he was ever in dire need of money, a crystal could save him. Last time he had visited the caves, he had allowed his emotions to show in the crystals and that had almost gotten him arrested. Now, he was far more cautious. As he walked deeper into the cave, and closer to where the crystals were, he began playing a game of Pazaak in his mind. After having used this trick more than a couple of times, Char was by now pretty good at hiding his thoughts and emotions.
  8. Char smiled a bit when he heard Mirran referring to crystals as puppies. For Char, crystals were tools to be used in the construction of a lightsaber. He wasn't really interested in a crystal calling to him; once inside the cave, he planned to take whichever crystals he liked. He would certainly take more than one. Char walked slowly forward. He had no desire to run. Nor did he have any interest in getting inside the cave first. He would prefer to go in last. This way, if there was any danger, he wouldn't be the one to face it and it would make a retreat easier, if one was needed. Magnus asked them to lead the way; Char did so. He followed the same path that he had followed when he had gone to the caves with Homra. He still remembered that day. He had almost been arrested by Homra. After some walking, they finally reached the entrance. "Here is the entrance", he said, pointing at it. "You should go first. I will be following closely behind."
  9. "I have always wanted to venture into the cave, so I am not backing out.", Char said. "And, as you know, I am not really fond of following the rules." Char wasn't interested in either the cave water nor in having fun. He was far more intrigued by the prospect of snatching a crystal. Magnus and Mirran wouldn't have to know, although even if they did find out what Char was planning, he was confident that they wouldn't rush to report it considering the fact that this whole trip was not approved by the Council. For now though, Char put up a smile and said "Shall we get going? We don't have all day, do we? So we should waste no time. The sooner we get to the cave, the more time we can spend there."
  10. Char walked to the training fields. He was carrying with him a backpack containing a bottle of water, rations, a light source and climbing gear. Although Mirran's message did not mention what they were going to do, Char had good reason to believe that they would head to the Crystal Cave. Char was of course more than curious about the secrets of the cave. As such, he had decided to accept Mirran's invitation. Hopefully, he could get a crystal. That would prove useful. "Hello.", Char said, seeing Mirran and Magnus waiting for him. "It's a lovely day. I hope you did not have to wait long for me to arrive. So, what exactly are we going to do? I assume that we will be heading to the Crystal Cave, right?".
  11. Initiates sparring match

    Char was faced with a multitude of attacks. He wasn't talented with the lightsaber and his defenses were somewhat slow. Char managed to parry many of the attacks but Magnus was striking from too many angles and positions. Char struggled to keep up. He tried to concentrate. He cleared his mind of all thoughts. He was now responding faster to attacks but not fast enough. He had to admit defeat. "I have to admit defeat.", he said. "Your skills with the saber are good." Char wasn't going to give up though. Now that Magnus had shown his swordplay and reactions, Char was going to study them. Next time, he would be prepared and would know his opponent's weaknesses.

    The computer problem has yet to be fixed, so I will not be able to make posts for at least three or four days. The mobile phone I use is not really suited for long posts.

  15. Initiates sparring match

    Char saw Magnus run towards him. He couldn't understand what exactly he was doing. Char had no time to think; he had to react instinctively. Most people seeing someone charging at them would either attempt to block the attack or would also attack and meet them head on. But Char took a more simple approach; he simply stepped out of Magnus' way. He used Force dash to move fast and took a quick step to his left, letting Magnus run besides him. Char had subconsciously remembered an old idiom; when a hurricane comes at you, you get out of its way. A simple advise; but the most useful advises were usually the ones that were the simplest. Char let out a sigh of relief. 'That was close...', he thought. Char could now tell that Magnus wasn't simply trying to run into him. He had tried to use the Force in some way, though Char couldn't tell exactly what Magnus had tried to do. Although Char had managed to dodge Magnus' attack, he could tell that this battle was turning in Magnus' favor. Magnus had a much better knowledge of the Force than he had. Char had good knowledge of Force persuasion, Force mend, Force camouflage, Force dash and Hydrokinesis. With the exception of Force dash, which could only be used for a short time and thus could not be of much help, none of those skills could be of much use against Magnus. So he was at a disadvantage. Yet, Magnus' reliance on the Force could also be his undoing. Char knew that Jedi who overused the Force would get tired eventually. If Char was to have any chance of defeating his opponent, he had to draw out the fight for as long as possible and tire Magnus. Once his overuse of the Force had left him exhausted, he would have a chance to defeat him. Char decided that a quick series of attacks and withdrawals would tire his opponent, especially if he tried to use the Force against them. Char would charge at Magnus and then quickly retreat. He would then charge again and again retreat. He would do this a couple of times. When Magnus would grow tired and would least expect it, then Char would make the real attack. Magnus would not be able to react fast enough, being exhausted, and would be expecting another withdrawal and not an attack. Char hoped that this stratagem would work. His ability in the Force could not compare with that of his opponent and his swordsmanship wasn't that good, so he had to rely on the one thing that he was good at; deception. His only weapon was his mind. He smiled. If Char was confident about one thing, it was about his mind.
