  1. Inception

    "So was it you, Kai Tsintah, who turned off the lights in this area?" Surprised by the question, Kai shook her head in confusion. Was this stranger mocking her? Was it a test of some sort? Finally, what reason would she have to do such a thing? Dual-colored eyes widened as she lifted her head, curious to get a better look at him. Maybe his body language would leave some telltale clues to help guide her response. In the meantime, her mind swirled with a myriad of questions that seemed to run in panicked circles. Why would I--and how? I don’t even know where the light switch panel is. She was about to answer when a sudden commotion could be heard and then the lights came back on. Now Kai could see a pair of boys ‘dangling’ in the air as they slowly levitated over to the Zabrak. Wait. Was it really a Zabrak? Kai tilted her head as if the gesture would somehow adjust her sight so she could see better. Nope. No change. He was still lavender with black tattoos. The man appeared to be well settled into his middle age, although Kai was still too awestruck by the dusky violet appearance of his skin, to take notice. The Zabrak took a moment to admonish the two teenage troublemakers but as he turned to approach her, Kai once again lowered her gaze to the floor. Just then, another presence materialized beside her and took a knee next to the Korun. Sneaking a quick glance over to her left, Kai realized it was the scout that had led her to this place. "Kai Tsintah. If you seek knowledge, then you've come to the right place. If however, you seek to destroy my potted plants, we will have to have another discussion." “No, sensei - I would not raise a finger to your plants,” Kai answered in earnest. “On my world, they are so scarce that if one manages to survive in the high altitudes of the mountain slopes, we do all we can to protect it and help it strive.” Thankfully, Darth Verrin did not seem to think she was a vandal. Instead, his attention turned to the two young hellions apparently unaware that their actions could earn them some truly unpleasant punishment. Or, that the same or worse discipline could be applied to her, as the Zabrak indicated. What to do? What to say to all this?! Realizing that her neck was beginning to develop a cramp, Kai’s head lifted slowly. Dual-hued eyes of blue and brown met with the startling gold of a stranger who had just introduced himself prior to asking her judgment as to what should be done regarding all that had just transpired between her and the two mischief-makers. Scratching her head, Kai thought for a moment before answering in a firm, resolute manner. “Have the boys bring in two new plants to decorate the foyer so sensei’s displeasure burns less bright and the quality of air in the foyer is restored. Have Kai take the broken plant and find it good soil outside so she may make amends for not catching it earlier as she should have. One should not let base instinct control one’s foresight,” she admitted, still in the kneeling position. “As for my presence in this place, it can be confirmed by the scout who brought me here.” Kai paused for a moment, hesitating. “Sensei Darth Verrin.”

    "Be-waaaAAAARRREEEEE!!!" Pause. "Who invades my sacred tomb?!" Nope. Definitely alone no longer. Kai stilled a shudder, feeling goosebumps rise. What on earth was this place and why was she led here only to be terrorized out by menacing sounds slightly warped by strange voices. The only comforting bit about the whole ordeal was that they spoke Basic, a language she could easily understand. Yet in as much as the voice did its best to sound its ominous warning, Kai resolved to stand her ground until whoever spoke revealed himself. Clutching her bo-like staff in thirds, she lifted it off the ground with her left arm extending downward as the right hand came up just above her head, to wield the stick at a forty-five degree angle. If anyone or anything came at her now, at least she was capable of defending herself, Kai thought. Unfortunately, her reach would only expand by one or two feet with the power of each strike lessened by the lack of momentum she could have generated - if able to swing the weapon fully. Still, something had to be said for quick use of both sides of the staff in rapid succession and rhythm. Kai was quite willing to sacrifice power in return for agility and flexibility her stance now offered. With her feet shoulder width apart and knees slightly bent, she was ready for the ‘voice’ to attack. It seemed to do just that, sending something that resembled ...a POTTED PLANT, straight at her head. Kai ducked out of the way just in time, unfazed by the clash of clay against a wall of solid rock. She was growing angry now, realizing someone was having copious amounts of fun at her expense. Snickers, huh? Ghosts do not snicker?! I’ll show you… “Show yourself you, you little coward!” Unfortunately, Kai’s challenge was cut short by a sudden flash of light illuminating a silhouette of a rather imposing figure, accompanied by a chilly draft and a rather imperious bellow. "WHAT is going on HERE?!" Silence. Attempting to make out the features of the approaching figure, Kai quickly lowered her weapon. A figure of authority, no doubt. The pranksters certainly thought so and now, so did she. Unsure of how to greet the man, the young woman took a knee and lay the bo staff on the ground, head bowed. “I am Kai Tsintah. I was brought here by a scout who promised I could learn great knowledge here. If you are one of the sensei of this place, then I submit to your guidance and wisdom.”

    Kai did not remember how they got here. Idly, the Korun wondered whether she would be capable of making her way back to the settlement if the need arose. Her mind whirled, conflicting thoughts and emotions growing in scope and stature, as if somehow magnified by whatever surrounded her. Everything she felt here seemed stronger, Kai thought. The scout that guided her within said nothing throughout the entire journey to the Academy which suited her fine because Kai did not really feel like talking. Instead, she preferred to feed her senses with the aura emitted by her surroundings as the two travelers walked onward, keeping up an invariably brisk pace. The young woman’s stamina notwithstanding, she wondered how many kilometers they had covered. Distracted by a myriad of thoughts mingling with budding excitement, Kai forgot to count her steps and lost track of time, given the burgeoning, dense cloud cover that painted foreboding shadow against the thick canopy of verdant green. Overwhelmed by the mystery of all that had befallen her that day, the Korun's initial curiosity about the appearance and identity of her shadowy companion all but faded away. For his part, the scout simply stuck to his mission: leading Kai someplace she believed, would be a doorway to her new destiny. How much longer? This thought, pushing its way through a throng of many others, seemed to amplify the loudest. Just then, the rain forest enveloping the travelers seemed to thicken. Kai’s brows narrowed, her gaze sharpening as she clutched her walking staff ever tighter. And yet, her eyes were not deceiving her; the underbrush and forest engulfing them grew more dense with every passing step. Sensing danger at the last possible moment, Kai looked down, seeing a large flattened boulder just in front of her. And then another. And another. Stepping stones, she realized as her staff came down in front of her, hands twisting upon it. Her momentum ceased briefly, dual-colored gaze examining the obstacle in front of her. Man-carved steps. Ahead of Kai, the scout paused for a moment as if waiting for her to catch up. Odd. He did not turn. He simply. Just. Knew. Alright, then! Climbing the stairs, Kai ascended to the step just below her shadowy guide’s. The figure in front of her resumed forward momentum and the Korun simply followed with her gaze transfixed firmly ahead. Curiosity growing by leaps and bounds, Kai felt as if she were jumping out of her skin, eager to reach the top of their steep ascent. Her footsteps halted in tandem with the guide and she stood beside the shadowy figure who seemed intensely focused upon the wall of green that blocked further entry. Expecting to see some sort of a building upon arrival, Kai hid her confusion under a mask of indifference. Patient to the last, she now waited to see what would happen next. As the two of them paused, Kai could feel a distinct shiver of cold -- no, dread -- ripple up and down her spine. Was this some kind of test? Before she could voice the thought, Kai saw the vines and branches recede as if recognizing their visitors upon arrival. Whether through some magic, trickery or physical means, there was an entrance concealed beneath all the greenery and shadow, both of which had lifted away as if by some unheard command. Swallowing hard, Kai waited for the scout to step forward before she did. A current of cold air blasted through her as soon as she moved on, causing her to shiver uncontrollably. Somehow it had found a way through all the layers of clothing she wore, and Kai found the sensation quite unsettling. Distracting and unexpected, it made the Korun focus on it, rather than her new setting. Come to think of it, she did not even remember stepping through an entrance, or what it would have looked like. Kriff. Kriff. Kriff. Noting now that she could see nothing except walls of darkness surrounding her in a large foyer that was the largest she had ever laid eyes upon, Kai faltered in her steps and waited for her eyes to adjust to the absence of light within. Remembering the light-stick in her pack, Kai swung it off her shoulder and dug out the rod, turning it on. The portable device was not overly powerful, but it was capable of illuminating a meter or so, all around her. Obsidian stone below her feet, above her and all around her, and not a sign of another living being present. Her guide had disappeared, or was that another illusion to test her? Increasingly frustrated and confused, the Korun took a small step forward and then another, hearing the echo of her own footfalls being the lone sound in an otherwise barren chamber. “Hello? Is anyone out there?” Calling out into an empty twilight, Kai found herself shrinking inside in spite of wanting very much to ignore the feeling of uneasiness that sought out every inch of her body. For the time being, there was no response, save the echo of her own anxious voice. She was alone.
  4. Name: Kai Tsintah Rank: Sith Hopeful
  5. Kai Tsintah

    Name: Kai Tsintah Gender: Female Species: Korun Rank: Sith Initiate Date of Birth: 3610 BBY Appearance: Standing at about 1.75 meters, Kai has brown skin and brown-blue eyes, and black hair. She has a lean build and weighs around 65 kilos. Her hair is long, flowing past her shoulders and worn loose in casual surroundings (otherwise kept pinned up into a ponytail). She has no visible scars or tattoos on her body and has no implants or cybernetics. Her one distinctive feature is heterochromia iridum, or having two differently colored eyes (one is blue, the other brown). Possessions: Typically wears double layered, close-fitting robes and long sleeved shirts in earth tones or just plain black. In addition to hiking boots and a warm hooded cloak, she also adorns her waist with a utility belt that features a heavy blaster pistol on one hip, and a vibroblade on the other. In her backpack, you can find typical survival gear such as thermal blanket, binoculars, compass, weekly field rations, a handful of kolto packs, and a glowrod. Her transport off-world consists of an XS Freighter which she inherited upon her father's passing. She sometimes wields a pike or a quarterstaff in combat. Her ship is co-piloted by a T7-01 series astromech droid. Personality: Cautious to a fault, she picks her friends most carefully due to being slow to trust others. Though she may appear remote and self-possessed, Kai is a brave and passionate in both thought and action. Although mostly respectful of others, she is known for having a sharp tongue and offering occasional sarcastic remarks to those who test her patience. Overall, she is direct, confident, and able to notice inefficiencies upon first glance. Enjoys expanding her knowledge and sharing it with others, specifically those who had inspired or earned her trust. Alas, she can also be far too argumentative. She rarely takes other people's feelings into account, often including her own. Her assertiveness can and will often come across as too aggressive or arrogant, while appearing too defensive causes others to view her as contemptible and inspires them to steer clear of her company. Skills, Abilities and Talents: Following in her family's tradition, she is great at gambling (her father won their ship in a Sabacc game). A fair pilot as she is a markswoman, she can hold her own in a firefight. She enjoys space travel and seems to be addicted to motion, never staying in one place for too long. She has some skill with the blade and has been taught basic two-handed melee weapon skills (by her father who considered self-defense a priority for his only daughter). Her father has also taught her sleight of hand, and now to smooth talk and charm her way out of tough situations, if needed. Her 'natural' charm and persuasion abilities may actually be attributed to her latent Force talents, although that is yet to be confirmed by someone who knows how. Biography: Kai was an only child. Her mother died when she was very young, having fallen prey to a herd of hungry vine cats while attempting to find her way back to the family settlement with some game meat (and family akk dog, Gru). Kai was raised by her father who did not want to stay on their home world of Haruun Kal after his wife's demise. Everything there reminded him of her, so he took his child and booked passage on a smuggler ship heading for the Outer Rim. Having come to the large ecumenopolis known as Nar Shaddaa or 'Smugglers Moon', Kai's father decided to start his life all over again. He seemed to be quite decent at gambling, specifically card games. Soon enough, he was able to win enough to get a small apartment in the unsavory section known as the Undercity. Kai grew up among displaced Evocii, petty thieves and other unsavory criminal element. To that end, her father would teach her the basics of survival, which included both basic self-defense and self-preservation techniques. As she progressed into her teenage years, Kai noticed she could sometimes 'read' or guess her father's thoughts without him saying a word. Later on, she would simply think of herself as being extra insightful. As she matured into a young adult, she would start to demonstrate the ability to overpower her father with the sheer will of her suggestion, persuading him to raise her monthly allowance or allow her to visit a seedy part of town, alone. The old man would simply chalk it up to being a part of her charm, but Kai began to think otherwise. She would work this 'charm' and use it to her full advantage, wherever and whenever possible. As she got older, too, she grew to be more and more disciplined. She could focus on a task for hours, working on it until she saw it reach the desired stage. She would not be deterred or disrupted. Some innate, latent talent or entity seemed to want to crawl its way out, or all over her. Kai did not care, as it helped her achiever her goals in a timely and efficient manner. When Kai was sixteen, her father won a ship in a lucky game of Sabacc which he also taught her, among others. They celebrated the win in the most 'posh' club in the Undercity, but Rial (her father) had too much to drink. Insulting one of the Rodian patrons led to a knife fight which left Kai's father bleeding on the club's floor. She was now an orphan with no family and no future. All she had, was a ship and an empty apartment with few necessities inside. As inhospitable as her homeworld had been, this one had proven even worse. It seemed the more people a planet had, the more dangerous it was. Even worse, Kai felt very guilty for not being able to save her father (she was in the refresher, feeling ill from the after effects of alcohol, when the fight broke out). Nar Shaddaa may have held promise for them before, but it was only a grave site to her now. Packing up her things, Kai headed to an established pawn shop in the Undercity and traded some of her father's tools and other 'junk' he had accumulated over the years (that she would find of no use for herself), for a Pilot Droid (approval pending). Once she head cleared out of the apartment and her father's remains had been cremated, the young woman would head out to the hangar bay where the XS Freighter was kept, and boarded the vessel with the pilot droid in tow. She would not leave the planet that night, or the next, taking some time to contemplate her next move and making sure that the ship was in working order. She was old, this freighter, but she seemed to be in a decent shape, at least according to the droid. After some deliberation, Kai decided to stay in the Outer Rim. There was no purpose in her returning home, but neither did she want to stick around on a planet overran by scum and villainy. There had to be a place somewhere away from Hutt Space, where there were far less unsavory people to deal with. At the very least, she would want to hone her fighting skills somewhere, so she could offer payback to those who took her father's life or those like them. Her heart overflowed with anger and regret, and a secret need that yearned to be sated. Three days later, her mind was finally made up. She would go somewhere remote, somewhere where she could gather her thoughts and contemplate her future. It was impossible for her to gather her thoughts on Nar Shaddaa, where she felt only rage and anguish. Somewhere neutral is where she needed to be. As the freighter left both the starport and the Smugglers Moon behind, Kai set course for the obscure Dathomir system in the Quelli sector. As she had learned in the past, there were far worse places to be, and Dathomir could not be any worse than Nar Shadda. At least now all she had to lose was herself and her ship. Droids were a dime a dozen and common enough. From that point on, she would embark on a new path in life and hopefully, a new future. Landing on Dathomir was uneventful but the next several weeks certainly turned out to be nothing but. Having narrowly escaped becoming rancor dinner, she would eventually find a secluded spot in the highlands, where it was still bearable enough to build a house on solid ground. It would be a crude hut, made of wood and stone. There she would stay for the time being, exploring her surroundings and hunting unwary trespassers with guile and zeal. As for her feelings, Kai let her feelings run free and unchecked on Dathomir. She seemed alone here and saw no need to hide her true emotions. Amplified by the dark side of the Force that engulfed the planet, they would ripple and intensify, not allowing her any rest. Not even in her sleep. Dreams of retribution haunted her as she thought of that moment where she would return to Nar Shaddaa to exact her revenge. Until then, she would hone her skills as much as she could, and whatever this eerie feeling was, that permeated this whole planet? She would give herself up to it, entirely. It would make her faster, stronger, more agile, more perceptive. Kai could feel that now, with every life she took, every intricate kill she had devised, every square foot of territory she would get to know intimately. As her confidence grew, her hatred blossomed. Blossomed in the dark side of the Force. Seen to the eyes she could not see. Perceived by those whose presence the Korun had been blind to, all this time. One evening, while tracking what she thought was a trail marked by a herd of a very rare rage rancors, she was suddenly overwhelmed by an uneasy aura of dread and foreboding. It was far darker and more intense than what she had ever felt on this planet before and it caused her to fall back, looking for a way to hide or escape whatever was coming. But it seemed that evasion was pointless, as the presence would follow her wherever she went. Deciding to stand her ground, Kai called upon the dark power of Dathomir, demanding to face whatever was out there so it would come to face her instead of hiding in the shadows. Unknown to her, she was being scouted by recruiters of a Sith Academy, located somewhere on this very planet. Apprehensive and suspicious, Kai would only be swayed by the temptation of acquiring greater knowledge and by doing so, power. All of this was contingent upon her successful passing of numerous tests and trials, which only peaked her curiosity. Once challenged, she never backed down. Offering the recruiter her (reluctant) agreement, she would take this chance and make the best of it, whatever the cost. As such, a new, uncertain chapter of her life was about to begin.

  6. Welcome to Star Wars: Fates! How did you find us? Were you recommended? If so, by whom? I was browsing in dA, looking through a throng of pictures of Mandalorian art. One of the pictures led me to a user profile which had a link to the site in his bio, and so here I am. Tell us a little about yourself! Where are you from? How old are you? Do you have any prior experience with fanfiction or roleplaying in general? I am Canadian and old (33). I've role played in the past, on and off between 2008 and 2017. It's a long span but my interest kept changing from ST, to SW, to Firefly, etc. Have you ever been a part of a roleplaying community or guild in the past? If so, which ones? Yeah, Star Wars Chaos, and Outpost10F. In SWTOR, I was a member of Jen'Jidai (imperial side guild). What is the most important thing for you to get out of your experience here? Exciting stories with interesting characters? Good friends? A sense of belonging? Year 2018 is a year of writing more, at least that was one of my New Year's resolutions that I intend to keep. So interesting characters, definitely. If I manage to make good friends here on top of that, it's icing on the cake. Do you know what a Mary/Gary Stu is? Metagaming? God Modding? Provide a quick definition of each, because all of the aforementioned are against the rules, will you or you character have trouble conforming to this? A Mary Sue/Gary Stu is a character that has a wealth of awesome traits or special powers. They often demand to be the center of attention in whatever form it takes (action, appearances, personality screams 'look at me!') He or she is absurdly skilled in just about anything and everything while lacking plausible weaknesses or flaws. Metagaming is using real life information (knowledge) to affect the state of character's thoughts and deeds in role-play. God modding is role playing to overpower. It can be a character knowing something they shouldn't or a player taking control of another player's character (without their express permission). It can also be depicting a character that is in some way invincible and has no inherent weaknesses of any kind. How much time will you be willing to commit to the community? Do you forsee your schedule getting in the way of things? I work a late afternoon shift, so my prime free time is going to be noon to 3 PM, EST. Sunday and Monday I have off, so can be available throughout the day. Can you give us a quick run down of the biography and character you hope to RP on this site? A quick idea of a biography, type of character they are, and whether they might be aligned with the Sith Remnant, or the Unified Jedi Order. I am actually divided on this issue. I was either thinking of role playing a Force sensitive Mandalorian (if allowed on this site) or a SIth-aligned dark side Initiate. Do you have any lingering questions or concerns? A member of our staff will be happy to answer anything that comes to mind. I'm wondering if there are any races that are disallowed here? If it was mentioned somewhere I must have missed it. Would you like to provide any closing comments on your application? On behalf of the staff of Star Wars: Fates and the entire community, we wish you luck and may the Force Be With You! Thanks. Character Application Now we've gotten to know you, help us get to know your character! If you are already a member of this site, you can ignore the first half, and simply apply with this character information. Name: Kai Tsintah Gender: Female Species: Korun Rank: (Sith?)

All of this was contingent upon her successful passing of numerous tests and trials, which only peaked her curiosity. Once challenged, she never backed down. Offering the recruiter her (reluctant) agreement, she would take this chance and make the best of it, whatever the cost. As such, a new, uncertain chapter of her life was about to begin.

  7. Introductions

    Hi all, another newbie here. I have roleplayed Star Wars, Star Trek and Firefly before - they are my favorite sci-fi universes. Been looking for a star wars roleplaying site that is not related to the new movies. There seem to be plenty of those springing up all over the place but the timeline is of little interest to me until the story concludes, to be honest. I have played SWTOR for the first couple of years after its release so I am not familiar with the most recent developments in the game, but i have some idea about the Star Wars in the past. I am hoping to come up with a good character idea for this place although if there are any preferences for character types, i would be happy to consider them. Just a couple of questions that maybe someone can answer before I get started: are there minimum word counts observed here and are there any species not allowed to be made?
