Personality & Traits:
Secret - Ella is secretive. She knows when to divulge secrets (or information), and when not to.
Intelligent - She rates higher than the average level of IQ.
Trained Jedi Knight - Ella was a member of the Jedi Order, passing her trials to become a Jedi Knight. She still retains the training, knowledge and skills that the Jedi taught her over the span of two decades from an early age.
Sith Master - Ella Nova is secretly a Dark Lord of the Sith called Darth Ayra, who took over her body through an ancient Sith ritual known as Transfer Essence. As a Sith Lord, Ella possesses in depth knowledge on the dark side of the Force, which she keeps hidden from her enemies in the Jedi Order.
Secrets of Darth Revan - Having studied the Sith Holocron of Darth Revan, Ella retains all the information, knowledge and techniques taught by the Holocrons gatekeeper.
Secrets of Darth Andeddu - Possessing the Holocron of Heresies, Ella retains most of the information, knowledge and techniques taught by the Holocrons gatekeeper, except ironically the ritual of Transfer Essence, which was locked away by a former owner.
Arrogant - Ella is arrogant to other peoples sensibilities, beliefs and powers. She considers most, if not all underneath her from both a strength and philosophical perspective. She always considers herself the strongest in any room, and if that isn't the case, then the smartest and most cunning.
Secret - Ella is a Sith Lord called Darth Ayra, who took over the Jedi Knight's mind with an ancient Sith ritual just before her apparent death. Wearing the face of the Jedi Knight whilst her enemies and former allies think she is dead, Lord Ayra is determined that this secret is never learned.
Ella Nova is a small woman, possessing mousy short dark brown hair and found wearing the robes of the Jedi Knight. A Lightsaber hangs from her left hip which shines dark blue, with several other equipment adorning her utility belt. Her eyes are brown as well, although there appears to be bags under her eyes, like she has trouble sleeping. This Jedi Knight walks with an air of authority and purpose, and speaks like it too.
Ella Nova was a Human female Jedi Knight who served the Galactic Republic during the One Sith Wars. The Jedi Padawan to Sochi Ru, Ella passed her trials to become a Jedi Knight two weeks before the One Sith revealed themselves on Coruscant. Participating in the defence of the Jedi Temple, Ella was critically injured whilst trying to save several Jedi Initiates and Padawans, who were being evacuated from the temple as Sith Lords slayed every Jedi they saw. Whilst the war between the One Sith and the Galactic Republic waged on, Ella was befriended by an astromech droid called Arsix.
By the time that Ella had recovered from the injuries sustained during the Sacking of Coruscant, the Jedi Order had suffered several schisms that had severely weakened it's ability to serve the Galactic Republic during it's war with the One Sith. Signing up to serve with the Republic military in several campaigns, each resulting in defeat, Ella left the Order to venture deep into Sith space to find the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vornskr, defeat him and apprehend him so that he could be served justice by Republic courts for his crimes, as part of her plans to resurrect the Republic war effort with a major victory. However, during her duel with Darth Vornskr, Ella was soundly beaten in the duel and was subsequently captured by the Sith Lord, who imprisoned her upon her homeworld of Coruscant, inside the Black Prison.
For three months Ella was tortured at the hands of Vornskr and his interrogation droids, during which a Sith Knight called Vaulkhar attempted to free in exchange for her sparing his life earlier in the war. However, Ella refused Vaulkhar's assistance, knowing that his betrayal would only bring upon him the wrath of Darth Vornskr. However, Ella would eventually be broken out of the Black Prison by a sect of Sun Guards from the distant moon of Sojourn upon the order of Darth Ayra. Infected by parasites who had latched onto her body during her excavation of Freedon Nadd's tomb on Dxun, Ayra sought to free the Jedi Knight and use her to steal the secrets of the Jedi Order's healing arts in an effort to free her of the parasites. Although weakened and defeated at the hands of Darth Vornskr, Ella still managed to seize the strength to defy Ayra and refuse to help her. Finally succumbing to the rage and pain brought on by the parasites on her body, Darth Ayra used the ancient Sith ritual of Transfer Essence upon the Jedi Knight as a last resort to save her life. Although her physical body was destroyed during the process, Darth Ayra seized control of the Jedi Knight's mind and body, effectively becoming her.
Completing the ancient Sith ritual of Transfer Essence, Darth Ayra consolidated her former affects and took the Ayrix to the First Order. Joining the Order of Ren as Avedia Lacroix, Ayra joined the Knights of Ren on Yalara during their expedition of the Temple of Ragnos, guarding the entrance to the ruined temple whilst the others searched for the supposed Holocron of Tavion Axmis. Above Dosuun, Avedia begun to meet with the individual members of the Knights of Ren, with the goal of gaining their allegiance for an upcoming attack on three holders of rare Sith Holocrons that she know of from her seminal life.
Avedia begun to meet with Avreet, the Mon Calamari man who had led the Knights on Yalara during their expedition of the Temple of Ragnos. After revealing the existence of Darth Revan's Sith Holocron, Avedia bartered with Avreet, explaining that she would only confer the knowledge held within the fist sized pyramid in exchange for his assistance in the murder of a Mandalorian Warlord and two Jedi. Explaining that these individuals were Gatekeepers of rare Sith Holocrons, Avedia and Avreet reached an agreement. In exchange for access to her Holocron, Avreet would help her murder the Gatekeepers and take the Holocrons that they were hiding. After returning to her quarters, where Avreet had been left to study the Holocron, the pair learned of each others true identities and allegiances. In a test of each others strength, a duel between the two ensued, as both Sith Lords vied for supremacy over the other.
Following her duel with Darth Veles (Avreet's real identity), Avedia discovered the location of the Holocron of Heresies. Together, Veles and Ayra (who was deceived into thinking her Sith name was actually Vupua) ventured to Tatooine and broke into the homestead of Jedi Grandmaster Corvus Raaf, who was presumed dead during the One Sith Wars. Discovering the Sith Holocron inside the late Grandmaster's home, Avedia took ownership of the Sith Holocron and returned to Dosuun to steady it's secrets. Later, Avedia Lacroix would leave the First Order and host an excavation on Tund, seizing control of a library of ancient tomes and books belonging to the Sorcerers of Tund.
Entering a period of seclusion on Ambria, Darth Ayra planned her return to the galaxy in the guise of Jedi Knight Ella Nova.
