Star Wars: Labyrinth of Shadows
IC- viewtopic.php?f=31&t=366184
Welcome everyone at my latest Star Wars RP! This is a very fast reboot of an RP I recently tried to launch with a puppet of mine. With the release of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the previous release of Star Wars: Battlefront, and of course, the fact that its Star Wars for gods sake, I decided to create this, a brand new RP, with a twist. We are going to explore the Star Wars universe in a way that it has not been explored before. This RP is going to take place 200 years after the Battle of Yavin, or in another perspective, some 170 years after the events of the Force Awakens. This time frame will allow the RP to branch out to become anything we want it to be, and be set in the Universe we all love. So please, come on down, and apply, and May the Force be with you, always.

Background

Three Hundred Years after the Battle of Yavin, the reverberations of the Galactic Civil War are still being felt. While the Forces of the Galaxy fought and the many different powers rose and fell, there has finally been a cessation of War and conflict in the Galaxy. The First Order, the hardline heirs to the Empire, were able to enter a detente with the more moderate Imperial Remnant. Together, they waged a war on the crippled New Republic that devastated much of the Galaxy. Still recovering from the disaster in the Hosnian system that cost them much of their power, the New Republic was easily defeated in the following war, and the Galaxy was partitioned between the Republic, and the united Remnant and First Order, the Imperial Coalition.

The "First Great War" occurred 40 years ABY, and while the tensions between the two halves of the Galaxy were often high, they did not break out into open warfare. In this time, the New Republic was reorganized into the more decisively lead Ga;actic Federation, and both the Jedi and Sith orders prospered. The Jedi had recovered almost fully from the Great Jedi Purge perpetrated by Palpatine in 19 BBY, while the Sith controlled the Imperial Coalition, if not openly, then through influence and other forms of manipulation.

This veneer of peace came crashing down when Sith agents began a campaign of terrorist attacks against Jedi targets in the Federation. This prompted the Federation to retaliate and launched "The Last Great War." For almost 5 years, the Federation and Coalition fought each other to a stalemate. Billions died, and as resentment towards the War grew, so too did resentment against the Jedi and Sith, who were viewed as having started the conflict. Eventually however, the leaders of the Federation and Coalition bowed to increasing public pressure and signed an armistice. One of the requirements for peace that was agreed to was the declaration that both the Sith and Jedi Orders would be declared illegal, and their members hunted down and killed. Federation soldiers, accompanied by angry mobs, stormed the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and the Imperial Government initiated a series of violent purges to rid themselves of the Sith once and for all. That was 15 years ago, and since then, the Galaxy has enjoyed a watchful, tense, peace.

Now, as tensions once more rise between the Federation and the Coalition, and with the Jedi and Sith in hiding or destroyed, the time is ripe for someone, or something, to shift the balance of power, and unite the Galaxy once more, for better, or for worse

State of the Galaxy
Split down the middle, the Galaxy is held by two great Nations.

The Galactic Federation, a coalition of Planets, based on Coruscant, who trace their political beginnings back to the days of the Old Republic. They claim to be the heir's to both the Republic and Rebel Alliance, and hold democracy and civil freedoms dear. They are headed by the Senate and the Premier of the Federation. Their military is advanced, professional, and well armed.

The Imperial Coalition is a vast Empire, spanning the other half of the Galaxy and based on a massive Space Station, at the centre of the Maw Black Hole Cluster, called the Crucible. A descendant of the Empire and Imperial remnant, the Coalition values order and strength, along with devotion to the State. They are lead by the Imperial Consul, a position often chosen from the top brass of the Imperial Military. Their military is huge, and is the chief employer in the Coalition.

As always, in the often lawless Outer Rim, the crime lords and Hutts still hold planets and systems as if they were private fiefdoms.

As for the two competing Force Sensitive Orders, the Sith and the Jedi, both are in complete disarray. During the last Great War between the Federation and the Coalition, the Jedi and Sith took the sides of their respective powers, and suffered almost complete annihilation by the end of the conflict. Many citizens around the Galaxy blamed the two Orders for the suffering of the War, and both governments outlawed the Organizations, sending them into hiding and eventual dissolution. While a small number of Jedi have banded together to try and keep their Order alive in hiding, there appears to be almost no trace of any Sith activity whatsoever.


The RP
Alrighty, sounds exciting eh?

Well, with the general storyline fleshed out, here is the general gist of the RP itself.
This will be a very free flowing, character based (Generally) RP. You're expected to interact with your fellow RP'ers and to create stories alogn with them. I will not be pushing forward a single story arc during the RP, so it will be almost 100% up to the players to decide what happens, within the realm of reason of course. That said, if you find that your character has nothing to do, and is not able to get involved by themselves, I will create an opening for your story to progress.
As always, there is several rules.

1) No god modding, meta gaming, etc etc etc.
2) Be a good sport, characters do die, and battles are lost. Deal.
3) The OP, and Co-Ops are Gods. What we say goes.
4) Posts should be substantial, and well written.
5) Be pleasant
6) Stay true to the Star Wars Universe, exceptions will be made on a case by case basis.
6a) Examples such as a custom ship design or species
7) Expand your own stories and make this RP your own.
8) HAVE FUN. That's the point of the RP.

Yes yes yes
The name's James. James Usari. Well, my name is not actually James Usari, so don't bother actually looking it up, but it'll do for now.

Name: Commodore Vandis Vahn, ‘Darth Indespectus’
Age: 55
Gender: Male
Species: Human
Appearance:
Image

Personality: A combination. There are multiple ways the Dark Side can get to a person. They can let themselves be overtaken by ideology and desires. They can crave the power of the Force itself. Or, as with Vandis Vahn, you can use the Force as a pathway to other powers, slowly letting it corrupt you as you go along. Vahn is a cold fellow, someone in control of his emotions yet choosing to use them when the time is right. He is not really fallen, he could heed the light side if he wanted to. He just doesn’t want to. However, emotions still brew within him, and although he is nothing like Kylo Ren in his fits of rage, he can let his anger overtake him sometimes. Frustration often lead him to anger, and frustration is the one emotion he does not control. He also detests appearing weak, that is another weakness of his.

Bio: The history of Vandis Vahn is shrouded in mystery, much is unknown even by those close around him. They never ask him questions about his past, though, undoubtedly having something to do with the constant Force manipulation their brains are being subjected to. Many people just know he was a politician once, that he serves the Imperial Navy now, and that he is a professional hunter of Force sensitives. For this bio, however, I will delve into the rich history that is Vandis Vahn’s childhood and life.

Vandis Imovert Vahn was born on Haariden, a harsh, volcanic world in the Mid Rim territories. It could have been an outer rim territory, for all the people in the galaxy concerned. It was an outpost, a mining facility for one of the components of bacta. While extremely important, the planet was too caught up in internal strife and warlordism to really make any substantial money from mining, most was spent on the frequent civil wars fought in the absence of Republic or Imperial oversight. Amidst this struggle, a boy was born who would come to fly high despite his humble origins.

It isn’t known how the Sith Order got to Vahn in the first place. Perhaps they felt his ripple in the Force, even on distant Korriban, or perhaps they were just lucky. Perhaps, destiny helped them a little. Whatever the cause, one day, a strange visitor came to the home town of Vandis. He posed as a hermit, a kind man, just seeking a new home amidst the stars. Hermits often came to Haariden, it wasn’t known by many, so plenty of veterans of distant wars came there to seek reconciliation with their lost souls. Many committed suicide by jumping into lava pools, too. Some problems are too big to run from. People could feel a troubled mind behind this strange hermit, who introduced himself as ‘Scala’. People had seen Twi’Leks before, so they were not supposed to be worried, but still… There was something strange about him.

Scala took up residence right next to the house of Vandis, and the two became buddies. The young lad, barely in his teens, seemed of considerable interest to Scala. People just assumed he saw something of himself in the lad, and everyone just let it be. The two could often be seen talking, but about what, no-one could ever discern. His parents tried getting to him, but they didn’t dig too deep. Nothing of concern ever happened on the lava planet. What the people of the village didn’t know was that this ‘Scala’ was actually Darth Adustio, one of the Sith Masters of the New Sith order. The Twi’Lek was teaching and training the teen in the ways of the Force, the ways of the Dark side. Most of all, Darth Adustio learned Vahn all he knew about manipulation, about letting others do one’s bidding. Darth Adustio learned Vahn about Sith history, how the Sith tried to enslave all directly. However, Adustio found that there was a bigger art in seduction and manipulation. He had much more respect for Sidious before he declared himself emperor.

Slowly but surely, the mind of the young Force Sensitive was corrupted. He too desired greater power, if only it was just to survive. His village was poor, working in the mines dangerous. He wanted to save his parents, to get away from it all. Adustio used this to his advantage, and used all that ambition to fuel anger and frustration. Before long, the two were practising actual Force skills in the forest, playing tricks with manipulation on the minds of unsuspecting passers-by. By the time Vahn reached his twenties, he was an adept swordsman, and a semi-powerful Force wielder.

What happened next cannot be explained through one way. What exactly happened, even Vahn does not know. However, what is certain, is that one day, after returning from another training session, Vahn and Scala returned home. There they found not the cottages and shacks of old, only burning mounds of rubble and the bodies of hundreds of slaughtered. The baker, the butcher, the local repairmen… And the parents of Vandis Vahn. The local warlord had deemed the cost of the village greater than her worth, and made an example of them through mass extermination. There was nothing left. Vandis Vahn wept, cried, screamed for vengeance. Darth Adustio named it his final test, which makes us wonder of Adustio had any hand in the destruction. No matter now. After recovering from his worst grief, Vahn set about to destroy those who wronged him. That was the last time he cried.

The next years of his life, Vandis spent laying waste to his enemies. Not directly, of course. It was a test, he was to show refined precision. Both to hone his skills, and to keep himself under the Jedi radar. Vanis joined the warlord’s forces under another name, vowing to always fight for his lord and master. It took much concentration not to give in to his hateful emotions, but Vanis learned patience from his experience. Using the Force to manipulate those around him, the youngster climbed up the ranks of the organisation quickly. He always seemed to know what people were up to, what they were thinking, and he played the political game with much grace and comfort. Some people tended to… disappear, if they were too much trouble, but not all was perfect yet. Before long, Vanis Vahn served as a lieutenant to the Warlord that had done him so much wrong. He planted the seeds of distrust from the moment he got the office. The other lieutenants he worked up against the warlord, promising great rewards if they supported his claim to the position. The warlord, in the meantime, he informed about the traitorous scum in his own ranks. A third line of connection he held to the other warlords, informing them about the internal strife of the organisation.

When the whole powder keg exploded, Vandis Vahn wasn’t even there to see it. For one, he had changed his name to Darth Indespectus (for his own purposes), and he was on a transport ship to Korriban, Ancient Homeworld of the Sith. He relished in desire as he received countless messages from the warlord and from the lieutenants, asking him for commands and advice. The only reply he sent was ‘Lonfaderta’, one time to each of them, the name of his old village. The organisation ripped itself apart fist, before being exterminated from the outside. The civil war that followed lasted for twenty years. Darth Indespectus had fulfilled his test, and was on his way to becoming a grander Sith Lord.

On Korriban, Vandis trained even more. He read about the ancient Sith ways, about the power of the Dark side… There, among the tombs of so many Sith Lords, Indespectus could truly hone his skills. In the back of his mind, however, he kept the idea of the ultimate final test; bringing about the destruction of the Sith Order and the Jedi in one fell swoop, bringing the entire galaxy under his indirect control. Galactic domination, that was his quest. The ultimate test for any Sith of his calibre. He would not share that power with anyone. He would rule, as Sith alone.

To that end, he made up his mind. There was no future for him in the Sith order, they had learned him everything there was to learn. So, Vandis severed his last tie with the Order, Adustio, completing the circle of master and apprentice, before vanishing from the planet. Darth Indespectus disappeared from the radar, and suddenly, a young politician known as Vandis Vahn, a mining boy from Haariden, appeared in the Imperial Capital. Using his force manipulation, Darth Indespectus could hide his Force Sensitivity from those around him, even from those trying to sense it in him. People were willing to follow him, soldiers adored him, and politicians sensed in him a golden calf to be exploited. Especially the Sith thought him easily manipulated by their powers, although they didn’t know they were being manipulated themselves, Indespectus having shielded his mind.

And so, through hard work on the side of Vandis Vahn, now an officer in the Imperial Navy and a high-ranking politician, Sith agents began agitating the Jedi Order, calling them out to open conflict. Needless to say, in the Last Great War, the amount that Vandis Vahn actually fought was limited. However, the battles he did fight in (minor skirmishes all) were blown out of all proportion by the media, as he was praised by commanders on both sides for his ‘tactical brilliance’. He wasn’t actually that brilliant, enemies just tend to give up sooner if their minds are being invaded by the Dark Side. Also, force lighting (used in discretion) can convince many to give up their secrets. Fear, intimidation, manipulation, those were the weapons he used against his enemies.

In the end, although the Sith didn’t realise this, Vandis Vahn became a moving force behind the persecution of both the Jedi and Sith orders. He could not have Force Sensitives in his way of total domination, now could he? No, that would not do. Like Sidious before him, he would have to eliminate both the Jedi and the Sith before setting his actual plans into motion. And that is where we find ourselves today. The Sith and Jedi are hunted down, not at least by Commodore Vandis Vahn, one of the officers hunting for Force Sensitives in the galaxy. Not the top guy, although there is no need to be the top guy when you’re Darth Indespectus. His secret agenda to control all life will soon leave her first stage, if he can just get the last remnants of the Jedi and Sith to vanish. Fortuna Favet Fortibus.

Name: Alar Tanis
Age: 44
Gender: Male
Species: Togrutan
Appearance:

Personality: Cooler and more aloof than most Jedi, Alar is a consummate Master, deeply connected to the Force. He is wise and very intelligent. He does however have a slight grudge against the Federation for the Extermination of the Jedi Order
Side of the Force: Light Side
Realized Midichlorian count: 10,000
Potential Midichlorian count: 11,500
Force User class: Guardian
Specialized Force Abilities: Excels at telepathy and telekenisis, and has a great knowledge of tutaminus
Weapons: 1 violet sabre staff
Light saber Form: Form VII Juyo
Bio: Born on the Planet of Shili in 256 ABY, Alar Tanis was immediately identified as Force sensative by the doctors of his homework. As with almost all Force sensative children, Tanis was selected by Jedi Recruiters and brought to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant as an infant. Growing up, it was clear that Tanis had a strong connection to the Force, and even from this early age, he was showing prowess with a Lightsaber.

At the age of 10, he was selected by Master Kalis Seeli, a female Zabrak Jedi and a renowned combat enthusiast. Master Seeli was intense and her lessons with Tanis would not only consist of the traditional techniques of the Order, and the missions assigned to them, but also dangerous travels to the darkest corners of the Galaxy. As a team, they were among the best in the Order, and the High Council began to rely on them not only for violent conflicts, but also more delicate, diplomatic matters.

As his time as a Padawan went on, Tanis also refined is Lightsaber technique. Taking advantage of his natural strength and speed, Tanis specialized in a personal version of Form VII: Juyo. Melding the intense blade work of Juyo with the fluidity and elegant acrobatics of Form IV: Ataru, Tanis grew into a fearsome warrior, and one of the most promising students of swordsmanship the Jedi had seen in a generation. A martial hurricane in combat, Tanis was renowned for his speed, and his environmental awareness.

As he progressed through the Jedi Trials, Tanis was taken on one final mission by Master Seeli. Entering the ruined caverns of Illum, Tanis sought out a proper crystal to power his blade. By the power of the force, he was able to find a pair of extremely rare Violet hued crystals. Using the stones in his blade, Tanis created a personalized saberstaff. With a crystal at each end, the staff could be separated at will, and made to use both, or one blade. This versatility allowed Tanis a variety of options in combat depending on the situation. When he exited the Caves, he had become a Jedi Knight, and his Master was granted a seat on the High Council.

As a Jedi Knight, Tanis grew from a prodigy into a legend. His skills were recognized by all, and Younglings dreamed of becoming his Padawan. He eventually trained three Jedi to Knighthood earning himself the title of Master. It was at this time that he was also given an opportunity. The High Council offered Tanis the post of Battlemaster for the Order, a position that oversaw the Lightsaber training and security of almost every Jedi. Tanis could not refuse, and soon became a familiar face around the Jedi Temple.

When the "Last Great War" broke out, Tanis was given the rank of General, and was placed as the second in command to his former Master, General Seeli. The two of them held responsiblility for the Home Fleet and the security of Coruscant, a posting that did not earn either much action in the early months of the War. However, when the Imperial Coalition launched the "Grand Offensive" into the Deep Core, it was Tanis and Seeli that held on during the months long Siege of Coruscant. For weeks, Coalition and Federation ships battled each other in the sky as Imperial troops attempted to seize the city. As Tanis and Seeli held off the Imperial troops, the Premier and Senate were evacuated to Corellia. In the dying days of the Siege, as Imperial attacks became more and more desperate, the Jedi were assured of Victory. However, a strike team of Sith infiltrators were sent to the Planet in one last attempt to sabotage the planetary shield. While the plan failed, the Sith Assassins were able to kill Master Seeli while she defended the Shield against them. Her death marked the end of the Siege and the beginning of the end of the War. To fill her seat on the Council, the Jedi asked Tanis to rise to her post. At first reluctant, Tanis accepted the invitation, as it became clear that the Federation needed his tactical mind to end the war. As a senior member of the Council, Tanis was one of the key planners for the war.

As the conflict settled once more into a stalemate and the populace began go turn against the continued war effort, the Jedi were caught up in events. Tanis was on Coruscant when the Federation Premier issued an edict that declared the Jedi Order illegal, and as the highest ranking Jedi in the Temple when it was stormed by angry mobs and Federation troops, it fell to him to defend the ancient ediface. Rallying his comrades, Tanis fought a hopeless battle, that saw huge losses on both sides. Eventually, he had to bow to the inevitable, and after a protracted fight, escaped Coruscant with as many Jedi as possible.

With only a handful of Master and Padawans in tow, Tanis and the remaining Council Masters agreed to take the Order into hiding on the planet of Ossus, in the deep core. Hiding in plain sight, the exiled Jedi Order once more took up residence in the ruins of their former library and academy, restoring them to their former glory. Under the thick, disruptive atmosphere of Ossus, the Jedi Order has attempted to rebuild, hidden from Galactic view. Tanis was among the most respected of the Orders surviving Masters after the fall of the Temple, and was chosen without contest to become the new Jedi grand Master.

Character

Name: Myles Berilen
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Species: Human, Tatooine Native, Mandalorian
Appearance:
Image

Personality:Can be described as a mercenary, as he's only in anything for the money. He, of course, has his limits. He doesn't do assassinations, unless it's some Di'kut slaver or big criminal. Fights with honor, having learned what he knows about Mandalorian culture not from his father, but from the Smuggler that practically raised him.
Side of the Force: Neutral, Grey
Realized Midichlorian count: 0? (He doesn't know he's force sensitive)
Potential Midichlorian count: 11,000
Specialized Force Abilities: Force Persuasion/mind trick, Force Listening. He does these unintentionally, believing that he's just real charming and also good at picking up new languages.
Weapons: DL-33 Heavy Blaster Pistol
Image


Vibroblade

Image


Light saber Form: None
Bio: Myles was born to a small time Mandalorain bounty hunter in the service of Rotta the Hutt, a vile gangster that took over Jabba the Hutt's crime empire. Over time, Myles became used to the ways in Rotta's Palace. It was rough, especially for a child, to grow up in such an evil and debased place. He had many siblings, and he was definitely not the most favored of his father's children. Myles was, however, highly favored by Rotta himself, who doted on the young human.

Myles' father died when Myles was 14, leaving him and his siblings as orphans in Rotta's service. Myles and his 13 year old sister, Ravenna, were sent to work with one of Rotta's smugglers while the rest worked as servants and cleaners in the Palace. The Smuggler was far kinder than Myles' father, and taught him just about everything he knew about the art of smuggling. More years passed and the smuggler died, leaving his ship, and his small fortune, to Myles and Ravenna. Myles used most of the money to buy his and his family's freedom from Rotta, Some left Rotta and became merchants, moisture farmers and the like, but some stayed in Rotta's service as free men.

Myles now flies among the blackness of the void, along with his sister and a few others he picked up along the way.

Looks good, just thinking for the bio though, Tyber Zann would have been dead for a couple hundred years by this point in time, maybe you could have taken the Consortium over from his other associates?

Ahh, well what if we said it was his great grandson or something?

I presume Urai Fen is a would still be around, since he can recall the jedi in the game, I guess he would be around?

For sure, distant relative would be perfectly fine.

As for Urai, he would probably be pretty old by now, but since he is quite a long lived species anyways, I'm willing to let him still be out and about. Just dont expect him to be at his peak fighting condition any more, especially agains Sith or Jedi

My Sith App all nicely done and finished

Name: Darth Sadis ( Born Romedda Sallari
Age: 33
Gender: Female
Species:Dathomiri
Appearance:
Image

Personality: Cruel, and extremely cunning, Sadis uses manipulation and pain to get her way. She is seductive and has no scruples when using her beauty to get what she wants.
Side of the Force: Dark Side
Realized Midichlorian count: 7,500
Potential Midichlorian count: 10,000
Force User class: Sith Sorceress
Specialized Force Abilities: Force Lightning, Sith Sorcery, Force Visions
Weapons: 2 Red light-sabers
Light saber Form: Form VI Niman, Jar-Kai variant
Bio: Born nightwitch of Dathomir, Romedda Salarri was reared from her earliest memories to survive. Enslaved by trandoshans from a very early age, Romedda was sold to a distant master on Ryloth. Every day was a fight to get food, to avoid their masters wrath. As soon as possible, Romedda was taken as her Master's latest trophy bed slave, and was a rising star in his harem. While she lived at his Villa on Ryloth, Romedda was taught the politics of seduction and manipulation by her peers, and soon has blood on her hands, orchestrating the ends of many rival concubines. However, at the age of 14, Romedda was assaulted by her Master's son, who beat her violently before using her as his father did. This humiliation was a step too far for Romedda, and she lashed out. This surge of emotion unlocked her force sensitivity for the first time, blasting her attacker back with a powerful surge of force energy. The resulting impact with the wall killed her Master's son, and as a punishment, the Slave owner sentenced her entire family to be executed, and her as well.

After her families execution, Romedda grew more and more angry, desiring only to wreak revenge on her oppressors. She desperately groped for the power she had had during her rape, but could only get the smallest of results. While in Prison, the young Dathomiri befriended an old man, who helped her survive the rough and tumble world of the Ryloth's penitentiaries. When Romedda was 16, the old Man revealed himself to be a Sith Lord, Darth Tactican, who had been imprisoned by the Federation for spying on its mining operations. Hatching a daring escape plan, Tactican and Romedda were able to blast their way through the Prison, and find refuge on a shuttle heading towards Coalition space. It was on this shuttle, that Tactican and Romedda became master and apprentice, the teenage Dathomiri taking the name of Sadis.

Returned to the Sith Headquarters held within "The Crucible," Sadis endured daily training, mentally, physically, and illusory, for almost 10 straight years. Under the careful instruction of her Master, and the Circle of Sorcerers, Sadis' affinity for Sith Magic was uncovered, and her immense skill connection to the Force fully exploited. She viewed the Force as a tool, and she desired to wield it as she saw fit, taking in everything the Sorcerers could teach her. She was also revealed to be a prodigious seer, and her prophescies and visions were more accurate, than not. Graduating the Sith Academy, Sadis was arguably one of the most capable students that the Sith had ever produced. Her talent as a Sorceress and force wielder became well known around the Empire, so much so that she was brought before the Imperial Consul himself as one of his advisers.

When the "Last Great War" broke out, Sadis remained behind at Korriban as the Consul's adviser and bodyguard, but after the sacking of the capture of Tython by the Imperials half way through the conflict, she was compelled to journey to the occupied world, and learn from its archives and powers. Present in the ruins of the old Jedi Temple on Tython when the Republic Counter attacked, Sadis was he highest ranking Sith on the world, and took command of the Planets defenses. During the weeks long battle for control of the World, Saids became well regarded, and respected by her troops for her efficiency, cunning, and cold hearted logic. Her cruelty towards captured republic soldiers, and especially Jedi earned her a wicked reputation as one of the Sith's most terrifying weapons, as tales of her sorcery and mental powers became common place.

Despite her effective defense of Tython, the Sith were forced to withdraw from the planet when the Imperials launched the attack on Coruscant. Present during the early days of the Battle, Sadis watched with grudging respect at the tenacity of her Federation and Jedi enemies. She was the one who formulated the strike force to take down the Planetary shield, and took part in the action, dueling and killing Jedi Master Khalis Seeli herself. As the War grew more desperate for the Imperials and the Siege of Coruscant ended, Sadis was assigned to delve into the Dark arts in an attempt to find a power that might take the Sith to victory once more.

She was present in the the Crucible when the Consul abolished the Sith Order, and had to fight her way out of the massive space station. Driving hundreds to the point of insanity with her telepathic powers, and disintegrating man more with blasts of her Sith Sorcery, Sadis was able to commandeer a scout ship, and flee to the Outer Rim, to await and plot her revenge.

Sorry you feel that way, the use of Midichlorians is, however, a very important gauge of power for a Force user, and allows us to put power at least on some sort of scale, giving the RP much more balance.

To be fair, a force user is not really governed by their midichlorian count. Consider that Windu and many incredibly strong force using Sith had midichlorian counts 10-12k and yet their were very powerful. Windu's ability to channel the force to include dark side energy made his use of Vaapad very strong. Sith Lords around the 10k range could create untold destruction with force powers. It all has to do with the mastery over the force and the ability of the individual to channel their power. Palpatine was "more powerful" than Yoda, yet Yoda's level of mastery allowed him to absorb or deflect Palpatine's force lightening.

Personality: Arrogant, charming, vain, reckless, impatient, honorable
Side of the Force: Dark Side
Realized Midichlorian count: 9000
Potential Midichlorian count: 10,500
Force User Class: Sith Warrior
Specialized Force Abilities:
Force Invincible
-While Descran is not actually rendered invincible the result may seem that way. This power when used in combat allows him to shrug off force and other attacks. It works as a sort of shield as well as using his rage in combination with the dark side to fight through the damage he sustains giving him incredible resilience. This forces opponents to engage him in melee, his preferred form of combat.

Force Enhance
-Although all force users tend to enhance their physical abilities with the force, Descran does so on a far greater level. Everything from his strength, speed, endurance, stamina, reflexes and agility.
Weapons: Red Single Blade Lightsaber
Light saber Form: Djem So/Shien
Bio:

Darth Descran was too young to revel in the days when Sith numbered so many and their order was respected. Showing great potential for the force, Darth Hideon whisked him away to be his apprentice when the laws came forth that would outlaw the Sith. The two ran to Nar Shaddaa where Descran was to complete his training. During their time here Hideon beset Descran upon the various gangs that inhabited the smuggler's moon as an exercise. It was on Nar Shaddaa where he developed his ruthless survival of the fittest mentality that is a cornerstone of Sith philosophy. Although he showed great aptitude for the force, it was mastery in lightsaber combat that Descran pursued the most. He tailored his training in the force to augment his skills with a blade. For example, while Descran is capable of using force lighting his power in the ability is marginal compared to other Sith Lords and any well trained Sith or Jedi would find a blast of force lightning from him to be easy to defend against. He also knows little of Sith Sorcery. Though he had trained endlessly in various forms getting a good knowledge for all he became a master at Djem So/Shien to exploit his natural strength to its fullest potential. Descran also preferred the straightforwardness and aggression of the style. Today Darth Descran is second to none as a lightsaber duelist and combatant.

For a time Descran was sent on various missions by his master collecting Sith holocrons and artifacts throughout the galaxy. Tasks that Descran was displeased by finding it pointless and beneath him. As a Sith he embodied the warrior in all respects. Unlike Hideon, Descran found no interest in subtle machinations and instead, relied on his martial prowess to achieve his ends. When the confrontation finally came to be Master rather than apprentice, there was no sly betrayal. Descran challenged Hideon openly and faced off against him in the Nar Shaddaa Undercity. Although no one was there to witness it, the two engaged in a legendary duel. Descran had trained specifically for Hideon's powerful force attacks using the dark side to deflect or absorb his Master's onslaught. His excellency in defensive force techniques left Hideon unable to penetrate Descran's shielding. Master and Apprentice locked blades illuminating the dark undercity with the flurry of their precision strikes, block and parries. Although Hideon was a master lightsaber duelist as well, Descran was his superior and in the end decapitated his master. It was there that Descran gained an addiction to besting another in a great duel. The glory and exhilaration was something he would come to crave.

As a Sith, Descran has no desire to revive the Sith Order, gain political power or take on apprentices. After defeating Hideon he took his Master's ship which was used to flee Korriban 15 years ago in a quest of pure vanity to scour the galaxy for its greatest fighters whether they be Sith, Jedi or otherwise. Descran seeks to best them in battle for glory and to prove that he is indeed the greatest warrior in the galaxy so that he may become a legend for the ages.

Notes: To sum it up, as a force sensitive Descran is geared towards defensive force powers, force powers that enhance his physical capabilities, and a highly aggressive lightsaber combat.

The ship design is quite old but I'm going to say it was built more recently.

Bio:

Rebekah was born in the streets of Coruscant, a young babe whose parents were barely more than skin and bones, yet cared for her greatly. In terms of education and speaking, they taught her what they could, while working odd jobs to raise her into a proper woman.

When she was five, her parents were murdered by smugglers to take her flesh. With her blonde-silver hair and fair skin, she would have fetched a high price in the pleasure districts has it not been for a vigilante group who ambushed the criminals and rescued her and several other children. Bringing them to their hideout, the vigilantes were revealed to be a splinter group of the Resistance, a group whose exploits were lost in the times of chaos. Each of the children had their blood sample taken, and Rebekah's proved to have a stunningly high midichlorian count.

Knowing that they have stumbled upon something extraordinary, the vigilantes were about to send her to a faraway planet when a crime lord launched a raid against them, killing most of the vigilantes and the children. Rebekah managed to escape with a pouch of credits which the vigilantes entrusted to her handler, the girl began to live a life of solitude among the streets, using her physical charms to seduce the random person into the streets, where she could knock him out without being scene, and liberate him of his belongings. With enough funds, Rebekah managed to gain access to education, furthering her own knowledge of the world in order to survive. Student by day, thief by night, Rebekah accepted her first assassination mission when she was seventeen, the killing of a deposed crime lord rumored to be gathering forces to take back his consortium.

Infiltrating the hideout was easy enough, until her employers betrayed her by selling her to the one she was supposed to kill. Surrounded, Rebekah nearly destroyed the crime lord's entire gang until she was exhausted, her blaster overheated, and the crime lord himself prepared to take her flesh for himself. Just as she was about to be violated, Rebekah gathered an unknown source of energy, which shattered the insides of the crime lord, instantly killing him. Gasping for breath as she released herself from the corpse, Rebekah realised that what she did was not normal. Gathering her clothes and looting the building, Rebekah sought knowledge of her powers through different channels. However, before she embarked on a journey to realise her potential, she has a score to settle with a certain criminal gang.

Bio: Kainos Kerensky was born to a Republic family on an inner world, but would never know his parents. His parents were murdered by petty criminals and the infant was taken in by the Jedi Order to be raised as one of their own. Kainos Kerensky spent his entire youth training as a youngling and later a Padawan of the rebuilt Jedi Order. Through much skill and determination, Kerensky developed a special atunement to the force that allowed him to conceal himself from those around him. The Jedi Counsel took great interest in this rare ability, training the Padawan to develop his powers in the hopes of using Kerensky as a weapon in the shadows to fight the Sith. While the galaxy maintained an uneasy peace, the Jedi Counsel believed it was only a matter of time until the Sith would strike. Believing the Sith would use the peace to seek out artifacts and relics of power, the Jedi Order sent undercover Jedi Knights to interdict the Sith attempt to gain in power.

Three years prior to "The Last Great War" Kerensky was promoted to the rank of Jedi Knight having completed his training as a Sentinel and was sent with his master, fellow sentinel and Jedi Shadow, Master Reka Shaval to a Sith controlled research station beyond the outer rim. Their mission was to retrieve a holocron believed to be from the great hyperspace war that contained Sith secrets. The holocron had been reported as destroyed, however an informant within the Sith ranks reported to the Jedi that the holocron seemed functional and the Sith need only discover how to unlock it. Fearing any advantage the Sith could obtain from the unknown holocron, the Jedi Counsel dispatched the two Jedi to retrieve or destroy the holocron. The mission seemed so go smoothly like so many before it, until Kerensky and Master Shaval were ambushed by Sith assassins and a pair of Sith Inquisitors aboard the station. Despite dispatching the assassins and severely injuring the two inquisitors, Master Shaval was struck down in combat and Kerensky suffered a debilitating injury; losing his right arm as well as his right eye. The Sith contacted the Jedi in an attempt to ransom Kerensky, however the Counsel denied knowledge of the operation. Kerensky was condemned to death by the instantaneous denial of the Jedi Order. In a flurry of rage, Kerensky made a sudden and desperate assault on the two inquisitors, taking them by surprise, killing them, and escaping with his life.

Outcast and disenfranchised with the Jedi who had forsaken him, Kainos Kerensky turned to the worlds of the Outer Rim where he was eventually found and taken in by a secretive group of Grey Jedi who's order worked from the shadows to strike balance between the Light and Dark Side of the force. After his recovery which included many surgeries and attempts at bio-mechanical reconstruction, Kerensky's body finally accepted cybernetic replacements for his arm and eye. He spent nearly a year training with the Grey Jedi before finally trusting them to take up conducting missions with them. Kerensky went on to conduct black-op style missions on behest of the Grey Jedi to keep the balance of peace in the galaxy.

When the Last Great War began, it did not take long for the powers of the Sith to find even the Grey Jedi's enclave and various cells throughout the civilized worlds. While the Grey Order looked for balance between light and dark, the light ignored their plight, considering them outcasts, while the Sith included them in their wave of destruction as an entity that opposed their rule. The small Grey Order was all but destroyed and by the time the war ended, had little power and influence left. Kerensky, realizing that the purge of Jedi and Sith would ignorantly include those of the neutral path as well, once more more was forced to turn his back on an organization that was once his home. He left what remained of the Grey Order, determined to no longer serve the greater good, for it was the way of sentient life to be self serving and the struggle to maintain balance seemed futile.

Kerensky turned to a life of bounty hunting, taking on the odd security job for wealthy clients and seeking out individuals of interest at the behest of the highest bidder. His unique skills and training gave him a distinct advantage that served him well in obtaining lucrative jobs. His travels from the core worlds and deep into the outer rim landed him numerous well paying jobs that eventually paid for a customized stealth craft that he calls home, and his companion, a refurbished HK-47 model assassin droid. Kerensky and his HK-47 unit have become known as a pair in the protection and bounty hunter world by the aliases Phobos and Deimos.
