BC turned to hou jo.

 

You are becoming very aggressive. My absence or not we are still Jedi and we stand together. We will discuss your misdeeds in time, for now you will act as a Council member should!

 

 

Looking towards Kirlocca.

 

 

Kirlocca you may present your idea before the Council.

IC: Hou-Jo got irritated with what BLCKCLONE said, but he decided to ignore him. He didn't know what he meant by him acting agressive, or his 'misdeeds', but he decided that he would talk to BLCKCLONE about it later.

 

Hou-Jo put his hood over his head and sat down. He didn't feel right. He looked up at Kirlocca to hear what he was going to tell the Council.

*Kirlocca stood tall and prepared to speak.*

 

"After the events of Hoth, I had found myself in a spot where I had a bounty on my head, after many events, I found the bounty was a fake, just in order to get me brought to him. Ob, is his name. He wants to become an ally to the jedi, and offer Bespin as a safe heaven for us, which could help out with the other half of the news I have."

 

*Kirlocca walked over to the council doors, and shut them, so that none other then what council memebers were persent, could hear what he was about to say.*

 

"I have already told Hou jo, that I know the location of the sith temple. I feel that now is the time to strike them, and make it quick. With the rebels help, I have done some studies on Gravity wells, And I think that I can reverse the process. Instead of seal other in, we could seal them in, leaving it a war against sith, vs jedi and Rebel forces. And with Ob offering his loyalty, we could use Bespin as an outpost against them. But, the only information I have is the location of the temple, not what defense it has or other stuff like that."

 

*Kirlocca stood and waited to get a reply for one of the two jedi who were now before him.*

Ara smiled.

 

"I'm glad you like the gift--and I'm even happier it fits you. I had to guess on the size, obviously." She finished eating and stood up. "I'm gonna head to the chambers now. Finish up and get changed, if you like, then try to follow my Force signature to the chambers." Ara winked. "Think of it as a little more training. I'll see you then."

 

She walked briskly to the council chambers, finding her way easily. She entered, bowed to her fellow council members, and found a seat.

 

"Sorry, I had to take care of a few things. What has happened?"

Tares smiled, "It was no problem at all. I'm sure you could have held your own, I just figured two heads are better than one. Speaking of your untrained state, I'd like to talk with you alittle later abou that. For right now, I have a council meeting to attend."

 

With a nodd to the two hopefuls, Tares stepped off. Into the hall, a technician came to him, handing over a square device found on the new transport brought in.

 

Making his way into the chambers, Wookie Jedi was already in the process of presenting his ideas, "And with Ob offering his loyalty, we could use Bespin as an outpost against them. But, the only information I have is the location of the temple, not what defense it has or other stuff like that." He stated.

 

Taking the time to let the jedi finish, Tares went into the discussion, "I would be questionable about Ob's loyalty." He said, setting down the tracking device found on the new transport, "Our sensor jammers caught the device before it was able to relay our location."

 

He took his seat and continued, "My question for you Master Jedi is where does this plan arise? A feeling of revenge?"

"An other issue; Ob is obviously an associate of the Hutts. This would be the second time the Hutt's have offered their alliance to us. The Hutt's have been our enemy for a long time. The last time they offered us help, at Hoth, they betrayed us. I feel that they are hoping to dupe you as they fooled the Jedi at Hoth to letting them land. Have you taken this into consideration?"

Staring at the closed doors, Mathis feels something start to smolder inside of him. It wasn't anger, but it was resentment. This was not the first time he had been ignored, and he was not liking it.

 

Clamping down on the emotions rising in him, he turns on his heel and stalks away. Using the Force, he quickly locates Nom and sends him a message. Having delivered it, he heads for the hangar bays.

As Nom sits at the table and shoves even more food into his mouth(probably to the disgust of Spock), he feels something through the force. Almost like someone was trying to feed a letter into his mind.

 

It seems Mathis wanted him to head to the hanger.

 

It looks like were leaving

 

Nom turned back to Spock.

 

"I'm really sorry man, but my master wants me to meet him in the hanger bay. It was nice meeting you."

 

Nom got up and headed towards where he first entered the ship, wondering what his master had in mind.

Xel, having already finished eating but figuring he could use the practice at sensing specific targets and being able to track them, waited a few minutes after Ara had left. Once he figured he would have a sufficiently hard time finding her, he set out, ducking into the first empty room he came across and changeing his pants.

 

Swell, now I'll look good for the council.

 

Moving back out into the hall with his bag of old clothes, he focused on the Force, trying to isolate Ara's signature. He did so relatively quickly, since hers is by far the one he was most familiar with. He headed in the direction of her presence, feelin' pretty good. New clothes, new home, new ability. His growing grin died though as he came to a dead end.

 

Son of a . . .

 

Turning around, he closed his eyes, seeing only through the Force. He saw the hallways, the rooms, the Jedi filling them. He followed a path mentally, seeing that it would indeed lead him to the council chamber.

 

Good.

 

He set off again, and soon found himself before the once again open doors of the council chamber. Hearing the last bits of the conversation as he slipped in and stood to the side and a little behind Ara's seat, he kept his face calm, though what he heard intrigued and confused him. He thought to himself.

 

Hutts? There were hutts involved in the attack? What were they doin' there?

BC listened to Kirlocca. As he spoke he leaned forward in his chair.

 

I do not trust the Hutts or their associates. Let us see what other avenues we can go across first. Ob Ordeena is a sly and dangerous man, trust him we cannot. However, a planned attack on the Sith would not be a bad idea at this point.

 

BC stroked his hairy chin and thought.

 

I agree with Hou jo on this. Ob is not the best ally to have.

Taking his seat, Tares thought for a second, "In order for any attack to work, we still need the location and allies." He went further.

 

"I know for a fact that is would have been impossible for you to have gotten the coordinates. From the little I have observed with the Sith, AP wouldn't take any chances of having an iffy apperentice know the location of the Sith base...."

Nom rounded one last corner and finally found his way back to the docking bay. He was relieved that he had made it, he kind of got a little lost on his way back.

 

He slowly made his way to Mathis, wondering what planet they were going to, if they were leaving at all.

 

"So, where to?"

Still aggravated, Mathis simply gives Nom a curt reply before walking onto the nearest ship.

 

"Anywhere but here."

 

With that, the ship powers up and leaves Manaan.

As Ish walks around the corrodors he sees other hopefuls and jedi with their masters. Jedi were still arriving and he could feel the presence of more and more force sensatives as their numbers grew. The architecture of the ship was stunning. Long graceful arches at every crossing over every intersection of hallways. The hallways seemed to flow into the rooms. There was a general white hue on everything as if it were glowing with appreciation now that the jedi had come there. Here and there blue flood lights would shine up at the ceiling which in turn reflected the light to give the innerworkings of the vessel a seaworthy calm blue color.

 

Before Ish knew it he had traversed from one side of the vessel to the other. He decided to head back the other way to see if he was missing anything. As he made his way about three fourths down the ship he glanced down the hall and saw Skye. She seemed to be glowing herself and looked quite beautiful. He would compliment her as a friend, but then again he knew there was something maybe up between her and Darex. As the two came nearer to eachother Skye spotted him as well. Ish smiled to see that she'd noticed him.

 

As the two came closer Ish asked "How are you doing".....cliche-of-a- greeting Ish thought, but it will do. Maybe this time she'd be ready to spare. He imagined she had honed her skills quite well in any case. Of course he didn't want to see pushy about it, so he did not ask her about it straight away.

Darsha went around looking for her new master and for the food center. She'd ripped off the ankle bandage a long time ago and she didn't think the sprain (or was it a dislocation?) was that serious after all.

 

Hmmm..... maybe he might be at the food center. So let's just kill two birds with one stone, shall we?

 

Hmph, you know I can't eat. Alderaan said.

 

So I'll torment you with a view of the food. Hmmm. that's three birds with one stone.

((OOC: Has anyone seen Jake (a.k.a. deafhuman) lately?))

 

Ben'a sighed at the limp, smiling form of his padawan as he lifted him into his arms and carried him off to the medical bay. Though he did not use the Force to aid his lifting, Aryian's comatose body was surprisingly light. Once he had set him carefully into a bed in sickbay, Ben'a tasked the medical droid to keep an eye on the young apprentice, with a nutrient feed and nanocleaners. Meanwhile, he had his own needs to take care of, and then the needs of several other things.

 

Ten minutes later, Ben'a strode confidently into the mess hall, where several of the hopefuls that had been at Hoth were sitting, eating, and talking amongst themselves. The Knight could feel the Force radiating from them; he smiled to himself as he thought of how they would eventually attain Knighthood themselves. "The order is in good hands," he thought to himself as he piled food high onto a plate and procured a glass of butterbeer. He sat at a bench opposite a chatting group of hopefuls (Skye Organa, Ish Ka Bibl and Darex Trevelian), and suddenly ravenous, began to stuff food into his mouth, quite forgetting his air of would-be regalness upon entering.

Skye greeted Ish with a smile and the three of them headed back to the mess hall, Darex to eat while the other two kept him company. Skye was sipping at her caffa when another sits down opposite them.

Spock gave Nom a small smile and a nod as Nom excused him self. As he continued to eat he looked about the room at the other Jedi.

*Kirlocca kept his calm in the middle of a controled choas. He looked at Tares, since he was the one jedi council memeber throwing questions at him, which he was ready in advance to answer.*

 

"I do not wish to strike at the sith from revenge, I found that most of the jedi are feeling bad. They do not think we have any strength left, but this attack would show them that."

 

*Kirlocca then turned towards Gantoris to answer another qeustion.*

 

"I have thought about weather or not Ob is someone to place trust in. He may not be the best ally we have, but then again...we don't really have anyone else to trust in, and we cannot do this attack by ourslefs."

 

*Kirlocca turned back around to look at Tares. He made sure his eyes locked with his, and then he spoke.*

 

"I know you do not trust anything AP would have told me, I barley believed any of it either, but I did check it out. Mimban, is the name of the world he told me. I looked, he have no records of it, yet at the same time, the Blacksun headquaters did have it's location. And thier came right from Imperial palace itself. My feelings tell me that it is a real place, and that the sith now rest there."

 

*Kirlocca still had more info for them, but untill they were done talking about what info he gave them already, he would wait to give it to them.*

The food provided by the ship was excellent -- better then any that Ben'a could recall tasting. The Jedi continued to eat, seemingly ignoring hte inquiries of Skye from across the table. But he touched her for the briefest of moments through the Force, telling her quite plainly that he needed to eat first. Though he was trying his best to avoid looking like a complete slob, there was still an urgency to his eating, a need to fill his stomach with as much as he could possibly pack away. Finally, with a long pull from the glass of butterbeer he had brought with him, he apologized, then regarded Skye's concerns about his apprentice.

 

"First of all, I have not eaten in quite some time, so I apologize for my haste. And in regards to my padawan, he is...asleep...that is all I can say to explain it. Thankfully, he should be well cared for by the medical droids, so I need not worry about him for the time being." Ben'a drained his glass, then continued. "My other apprentice is, I fear, lost...but not dead. He is out there, somewhere, but before I can look for him, I have matters to attend to."

 

Ben'a paused for a long moment, though, as he regarded the three young hopefuls before him. Something seemed to flow between the three, that much Ben'a could see through the Force, but what it was needed further investigation on his part. Sitting up in his seat to regard the trio, Ben'a felt into their minds, probing their thoughts with a benevolant air. Almost immediately, he felt the attention that Ish and Derex paid to Skye; it was something that resembled attraction, but it wasn't quite there, it wasn't quite fully formed. It seemed to the Knight that the two didn't quite know what or how they felt about the young woman between them, and to Ben'a, that was a danger sign. Though they had done nothing wrong -- yet -- they needed to acknowledge their feelings first. But Skye, too, was not immune to turmoil, Ben'a could see.

 

She was at once beautiful in her physicality, and in her presence in the Force; she had a sense of determination, of resourcefulness that could prove a blessing for some, or a curse for others. Ben'a could feel his own slight attraction to her, but he had other priorities, and so this mattered little other then the need to nurture her connection, for she, like her companions, was unsure where she belonged. At once, Ben'a knew why -- the lack of Masters available to train them to full Knighthood, to show them the way of the Force, and the dangers of using its darker powers. And as he felt into the unsure minds of these hopefuls, he realized what his father meant about having much to learn; and to learn that, Ben'a knew that he must go out on his own -- into the galaxy at large -- to find something useful to do, and from doing it, to gain understanding. But first things first...

 

After what seemed like an hour to Ben'a, he disengaged his mind-probe from the trio of students. He smiled warmly at all three of them as they stared at him; and then he spoke to them, his voice that of compassionate admonition.

 

"The three of you, Ish, Skye, and Derex, share a bond, though it is ill-defined at the moment. I feel that, through continuous training between you with the guidence of a Master possessed of great wisdom, you will be a great force within the Order. However, I am not anywhere near that, and so I fear you will have to wait until someone long in service to the Jedi comes along." Again, Ben'a paused to regard the three.

 

"The best course of action for now, I feel, is for you three to sort out the feelings you have for eachother. Passion, emotions, and chaos that serves no useful purpose must be purged from yourselves if you wish to avoid corruption from the dark side. Though I suspect you may grow sick of being lectured on this, it is nonetheless true; unrestrained emotions lead to unfettered passions, that result in chaotic actions that disrupt and destroy. But I have faith in the Force and in you three, that you can work it out, and that you will acquit yourselves exceptionally well in the trials that lie ahead. But in the meantime, I must leave you. May the Force be with you..."

 

Nodding to all three as he did so, Ben'a rose from his seat, strode over to the recycling unit, and placed his dishes and assorted post-meal debris in it. With one last turn to regard the others gathered in the dining area, the Knight turned and left, striding gracefully towards the Council chambers, letting the Force-presence of the assembled Masters guide him thusly.

Darex ate, listening intently to what Ben'a was saying. He knew it was true and sound advice. When the master left the table, he finished up quickly and turned to Ish and Skye.

 

"Well, I think we should take his advice," he said slowly. "We should talk. I don't want to fall to the Dark Side, and if talking out our feelings will help, I'm ready."

 

He got up and found a small room, decorated in a watery theme similar to the planet itself. He sat down and turned to his companions.

"Mimban? Sounds somewhat familiar. Wherever the Sith are, there choice for being there is because the planet must offer a natural defense. The Sith have the capacity to think like us. Dagobah, Hoth, even here, offers a natural resistence to attack. Mimban must also have this too. We cannot launch an attack until this natural defense has been discovered, the planet undoubtedly has one."

Tares shook his head, "The sith have been known to take their training to other planets as well. It is this way that they can prepare their apperentice's for other terrians when it comes to combat. Just because AP mentioned the planet was called Mimban doesn't mean the base is on there."

 

He stood up, "We have just came from an other attack on our own temple. We still have a few Jedi still out there in this dangerous galaxy, while the rest is recovering. Until we gather ourselves, we are in no position to go out on a limb to a planet that we know hardly anything about, on a guess that the sith base is there. Even if the Jedi were at full strength, the idea of going into the unknown where the danger is that of the sith, is careless at best...."

Ben'a arrived at the entrance to the Council chambers of the Eternal Vigilance. By the way the entrance was currently closed, the Knight could tell that a meeting was taking place, and by the feelings he was able to gleem from the Councilmembers, this meeting in particular was an important one. But there remained the need for the Knight to address the Council, and to ask of them what they needed of him in the meantime. And as he broadcast his feelings for them to hear, he sat at the entrance, waiting to be summoned inside.

 

Even as he dwelled on his questions, he felt that things would be different in the future; and this meeting very well might signal that change.
