Nexus Name: Defiled Cathedral Ruins
Nexus Alignment: Dark
Location: Khar Shian (http://starwars.wiki...wiki/Khar_Shian)
Affiliation: The Sith Empire. (http://starwarsrp.ne...he-sith-empire/)
Accessibility: Located on a plateau under icy mountains, isolated and reachable, but as nothing but the taint of the Dark Side resides there, and the surface is only ruins, one can easily get there by foot or and there is plenty of space to land. No one but The Amalgam is aware of its exact location.
Description: A broken down fortress like structure in the shadow of Khar Shian's Icy Mountains, the remains of its perimeter are surrounded by stone and wrought iron barriers. The Insides are a hollow skeleton, smeared with dried blood streaks. But the underneath is where The Amalgam truly resides, in the catacombs.
Visitors who are light sided, will feel an overwhelming sense of dark pollution slowly but gradually eating away at their will. Their connection to the light may be moderately disrupted if they are not strong enough to resist. Dark Side Adepts who are not the Amalgam feel slightly invigorated, able to concentrate Dark Abilities slightly better. The Amalgam's strength in the Dark Side is significantly increased here, to the point she has the ability to naturally use Dark Healing, though its effects will vanish should she leave the ruins. As a result of the Dark Healing effect the Nexus enables, This is the only location the Amalgam's body will not decay, even if she has not used Life Draining in a while.
POINTS OF INTEREST
The Amalgam's true home in the ruins, with a pent house like set up. Contains An Armory, a Shower, a kitchen and Library. A luxurious, if gloomy, home.
These ancient, corrupted ruins served as the Amalgam's home for over three centuries. It is her private refuge on an icy and lifeless world, and the place where she was instructed in the ways of the Dark Side by a vicious and evil witch of the Dark Side. The nexus was accumulated over the centuries by a callous and particularly horrid cycle of apprentice succeeding Master that occured dozens, perhaps over a hundred times on those grounds: At the end, of apprenticeship, the Master would be violently overthrown, and would suffer a horrific torment by having all their knowledge, wisdom, and perception of the Dark Side violently torn out of their head by their successor, who would be so overwhelmed by the breadth of knowledge that they would quickly become just like their predecessors, developing a nigh-unshakeable devotion to the Dark Side, backed by considerable knowledge of its gifts, and bent on advancing its aims.
The ruins were abandoned for over two Decades before The Amalgam finally emerged from hibernation, having finally overpowered the False Persona that had dominated her body. She emerged from hibernation in her bedchambers, and quickly set about reconsecrating and reawakening the Nexus of the Cathedral Ruins to serve as her home once more, stalking and sacrificing an unlucky team of explorers who had found themselves here looking for Artifacts. The ruins are her one true refuge, capable of sustaining her in a way other locations simply cannot. Its destruction would be an incalculable loss to her.
