And this one reminds me of Dante when he strapped on all that armour before.

What do you all think? I think we should all use them(credited of course) for our Jedi selves. The picture of Les on his profile is from Check it out, you won't be disapointed!

Mood:Peace At Last

Tal sturred slightly as a hand shook him gently, "Wake up Tal. It's time to wake up."

He had heard this voice before, but this voice was one of the after life, when a being became one with the Force. Tal's eyes snapped open and he looked up to see his old Master. He smiled at him and stood up. He was standing infront of a large gate with large Jedi statues on either side stretching out in welcome. Tal looked and saw two cloaked figures standing on either side of the gates, guarding them hs supposed. Tal and his master walked up to the gate and the two figures put out their hands and haulted him.

"We are the judges of the Jedi Order. We who let you enter or deny you the honor of resting your soul with the great Master's and Knight's of the Force. You, Jedi Master Tal Mantalus, have lead a very brief but busy life. You have been trialed and watched; you have suffered, lost, but you have loved. You have done something in the Force that many have not been able to do. You have loved another, but not at the expense of your Jedi duties. Your faith in the Force is strong young Jedi Master and you love is equally as strong." Tal stood patiently listening as his master stood next to him waiting as well. The two turned to his master, "You are welcomed here. But you are the master of this young Jedi, are you not?"

His master looked at Tal then back at the two, "I was, but I am no more. I am his brother in arms and in peace."

The two guardians nodded, "Then you may enter."

His master looked at Tal and lookd at the two guardians, "And what of young Tal here? Will he enter the Great Halls as well?"

The two guardians stood silent as if silently conversing with each other and then turned to Tal, "He will be accepted into the Great Halls as Jedi Master of the Force. Welcome Master Mantalus."

Tal smiled and bowed to them graciously then looked to his master. They walked into the blinding light of the Great Halls, to forever live among their great brothers and sisters of the Force.

The Force is strong with my apprentice. He is taking his last trial as we speak, and I am apprehensive about it all. I am not sure as to what my or any of the future holds. For the first time in many years I am walking in the dark. Ever since the rise of the Empire I have had an eary feeling of shadows. I do not know what this feeling is and where it comes from, but I feel it is death lurking around the corner, licking at my heels. All I can do is smile and keep going, for my allie is the Force, and a strong allie it is. If I fall in battle and go to the Great Halls of the Jedi, my Padawan will hopefully have become a Jedi Knight. I only hope to see it happen...

The oncoming trip may prove more costly to me then I truely know. The infection from Tella has caused a permanent infection of my right arm. I hope to establish good relations with the locals of this unknown planet and who knows, maybe I'll be healthy by the time we reach the planet. I know that with Dante in charge, no one will harm these Jedi. I have all confidence in him. Tella will hopefully make a full recovery and perhaps Serenity will return while I am gone. It will be good to see my love again. I hope her mission goes well on Alderan.

I can not fail my family again. I will do or do not. There is not try. I wish I had the strength of some of the Jedi I see. I do not mean power. A Jedi does not crave such things. I mean inner strength and wisdom, like Master Obi-won. A Jedi should not be judged by the skills of his blade, but by the skills it takes not to use his blade. What other options is there besides killing? That is what seperates us from Jedi and Sith, from peace and anger.

Let the Force grant me safe passage to this unknown planet. Let it grant safe passage for all the are with me and if necessary, to take me instead of them. I would gladly let myself die, then see any of them suffer another second. May the Force be strong with me and my family. May it be strong with the Rebel Alliance and there cause. May it be strong with the peasant that can not defend him or herself, for the alien being oppresed for what it is. May the Force all things living and sustain us to our last breathe and beyond.

The peace that ensued him caused him to smile and warm his heart deeply. He thought of his old Master, the fun times they had, the serious times, the times of mortal danger. In that time he had never left his side. He had never once backed down to a threat or rudely commented on another beings lifestyle. He had only been what he was, a Jedi. The man that inspired Tal even to this day. He looked to his counciling every day of his life, knowing that the words he spoke, made a great deal of difference in his outcome in life.

Passing on his knowledge of the Force to Les was his resonsiblity, his duty now. And he had not done a very good job of that until recently. He had to take the responsibility that he had accepted when he said he would take Les as his apprentice. From this day forward, he swore that he would always be there for Les. He would always have him with him, to learn as the Jedi of old had taught. Of life, of peace, or happiness, of the Force.

Concentrating and relaxed, Tal sat in his ship away from the crowd meditating. He had locked the door so there would be no interuptions. He was levitating a few inches of his bed and was feeling completely one with the Force. He had been seeing small visions of the past. Things that were, people he knew, events that happened.

Then a voice broke through his concentration and he straned to keep his mind set. "I shall take your head as trophy, Tal Mantalus Jedi Knight!"

The voice that spoke was loud and menacing. It had a slight tining noise to it as if it were mechanical, but it definantly felt feeling. And what was more, it was Force sensitive.

Tal focused harder, "Who are you? What do you want?"

The voice laughed a cackling laugh of hatred and anger, "I shall take your head as a troph, Tal Mantalus Jedi Knight!"

Tal felt a strange pain in his right temple as if it were suddenly being peirced by an arrow. He clutched the side of his head and he strained to keep control. He fell on the bed and the pain became more intense.

Tal was walking into a dark forest that was littered with bodies. They were bodies of civilians. They were men, women, and children. There bodies thrown around and ripped to pieces. He took his lightsaber from his belt and put his thumb on the blades button. He was ready for whatever lye ahead, or was he. He walked carefully through these woods, being careful not to step on bodies as he placed his feet between corpse after corpse. He saw a hill that was pilled with bodies now, and he started to climb it up to the top. When he reached the top he froze with fear and disgust. Everywhere they eye could see there was carnage and death. Not just people, but animals, trees, plants, they were all dead. Nothing had survived.

Tal looked out in the distance and saw a creature, no a machine. It was something close to General Grievous but looked much more deadly. It spun around and to Tal's horror saw a boy in the machines jaws. The boy was bleeding everywhere and screaming in pain. The machine thrust its jaws together and killed the boy, blood spraying in every direction. The creature laughed out loud in the same menacing voice that he had just heard a moment ago and charged toward him. The machine was fast as it pulled out 4 lightsabers and ignited them. There colors were not red as if it were Sith, but blue and green. Tal ignited his lightsaber and charged toward the creature. They locked blades and starred at each other. It then pulled out 2 more arms and took up 2 more lightsabers from its side and ignited them. Tal paniced as the creature lifted the 2 lightsabers up-

The vision went foggy and was cut off. The shrowd of the Dark Side was thick now and what ever it was that he just saw, wanted Tal and only Tal. For whatever reason, Tal was now pray to not only the Empire, but to this...thing. And he did not feel very comfortable about it.

Mood:at ease

Tal walks out of the med lab and out to the field where he left Jedi to meditate. He was still there the sun beginning to fall as it lite him up with the gentle warmth of its rays. He looked so pieceful that Tal did not want to disturb him.

I think he's beginning to understand. Thought Tal. This made Tal smile so much it almost hurt his face.

It will be good to see the Jedi in piece. I know he has been longing for it for such a long time. I really hope he finds his piece.

Tal turned to walk away and leave the Jedi but he caught him before he left, "Tal, don't leave. I must talk with you."

Tal walks over to him and sits next to him, "Yes brother, what is on your mind? Actually I have wanted to ask you something. Have you given any thought to a name yet?"

Tension is high here at the Temple. I had a breakdown, then Kat wakes up asking for help, but when we offer it, she refuses and criticizes us. But we are trying. Jedi is very upset with her right now and I believe that they should not talk anymore. It just brings bad carma. I have done my best to calm Jedi but my brother has a short temper sometimes. I am trying though.

Also there is the subject of little Les Crafter wanting to be my apprentice. I am not sure how to interpret this. I do want him as one, but I am not sure if I am entirely ready for the responsibility yet. I had a vision that he was my apprentice and he was helping me fight some galaxy invaders called Yuzzhang Vong. I am thinking that I will take this boy as my apprentice. But if I do this, my course of action toward life will change forever. I do hope that Jedi will continue his quests with me. I am looking forward to getting back out as soon as everything is settled here at home.

Tal sits down on his bed and looks at this tatered robes. He has been through much and has forgoten to clean up. He takes off his Jedi robe and tosses it on the bed. It will have to be repaired later. Tal begins to undo his belt and stops. He had finally done it. He had done what he had failed at so many years ago. He was a Jedi Knight. The joy that filled him was unbearable. He had not felt this proud, happy, and peaceful ever in his entire life. He had made a very good friend as well. The nameless Jedi and he were to go on a mission to try and recover and discover certain artifacts that they had in there possesion. This could be a very dangerous task, if not properly done.

Tal finally took off his dirty robes and threw them aside. Putting on fresh new robes, he felt cleaner and somewhat stronger, for some odd reason. It was amazing what a change of clothes could really do to a person. They could change his/her very attitude to life and how they acted around people they knew. Tal kept this in mind and tried to make it a point to not be arrogant of his new title. It was infact a great honor, but at the same time a great burden.

Tal set his lightsaber on the desk next to his bed and relaxed. He was turned opposite the door, facing a window that overlooked a beautiful grassy plain. He was at such peace. He closed his eyes and let the Force take him. The low hum of lights and councils echoed in his head as he fell silent. Soon they were drowned out and all he could hear was his breathing. He stretched out with his feelings, seeing memories of old friends, new friends, his old master, his last task. Then suddenly a blur. The Force was trying to tell him something. What he was not sure, but something was struggling. He focused harder and tried to make out anything that he could recongnize.

He concentrated so hard that when he finally did see something it startled him. He looked deeper into his thoughts, trying to determine what the Force was trying to tell him. Then his eyes opened. He was not in his chambers, however. He was on a different planet, a planet similar to the one Tal had been on when his master had died. It was not Dantooine, but something closer to it. He looked around and felt as if he were actually walking the ground himself. He turned and saw a building. It had a symbol he had not seen in a very long time. It was the sign of Corellia. His home planet. This building was so happy, so chearful that he smiled at its sight. The grassy plains of Corellia were a specticle to see indeed. Long blades of green grass being gently blown by the wind. He heard as children laughed and turned to the building once more. A boy and a girl ran after one another, playing a game. Soon a woman walked out of the buidling smiling as a man came up behind her and embraced her. They looked so happy.

The man looked up in Tal's direction and said something that seemed to get the womans attention. He was worried. He called for the children and they ran to him and ran inside. He ran in after them and locked the door. Tal wondered what had startled them as he turned around. Three beings dressed entirly in black stood ontop of a hill overlooking the building. There were 2 men and woman. The woman stood in the middle of the 2 men and was covered in tattoos and scars. They all held lightsabers.

He turned to the building and looked back at the 3 humans but they were gone. He suddenly heard an explosion as he quickly turned back to the building only to see the door had been wrenched free and the 3 humans dragging the family out in the open. The man was trying to fight back but was quickly restrained by one of the men. The woman dragged the wife out by her hair and the other man dragged the 2 children out by there legs and threw them down next to the wife.

The man screamed at them all, "Leave them alone! Take me! Just leave them alone!"

The woman smurked and used Force Lightening to torture the mother and children. The father looked down with horror as his family was being taken from him. He screamed and pleaded and begged, but to no prevail. He watched as his family was burned alive.

Aftewards, the man sobbing, the woman turned back to the man. She said something that Tal could not hear and the man screamed and lunged for the woman hands out ready to rip her to pieces. He stopped in mid air and hoovered. She was clutching his throat with the Force as she began to strangle him. He fought tirelessly as he clawed at his throat. She finally smiled a devious smile and crushed his throat, killing him. Letting his dead body drop to the ground, they 3 humans threw thermal detonators into the building and walked away.

Tal suddenly came back from the vision and found himself covered in sweat. He was awe struck. What could he have done? Nothing. It was just a vision. Of the past, present, or future he did not know, but it was real. The oppresion of the Sith...had begun...

Jedi Code:

There is no emotion; there is peace.

There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.

There is no passion; there is serenity.

There is no death; there is the Force.
