In this moment, we become their destruction. -Cardinal Vi'dreya
There were few who served the Knight's Obsidian long enough to claim the title, Master. It was an honor that came with years of experience and wisdom, something not usually afforded to the hard chargers of The Confederacy. From the moment they are sworn in a Knight of the order dedicates themselves to the Intelligence, Security, and Innovation of The Confederacy. It had been well over a year since Cardinal had taken the title of Dominus Prime and in this time he had promoted only two soldiers to the rank of Master. Some had often been given the honor posthumously but it was a rare event indeed to see a living Knight promoted to Master.
This promotion was so sacred, so rare, that it was not undertaken in the halls of the Knightly order. Instead it was before the Vicelord, Darth Metus that a Knight obtained the rank of Master. That was what brought the leading members of the Knight's Obsidian to the halls of the Viceroyalty on Geonosis. The main hall had been cleared of it's usual occupants and now only key members of The Confederacy stood in witness to this occasion. The lights were dim but still the banners of The Knight's Obsidian could be seen flowing from the highest levels of the room.
All together at least fifty members of the Knight's Obsidian had been assembled. They wore the traditional armor of their station, Strike Armor with several different hue's and shades to represent their respective squads and affiliations.
Cardinal stood before them, his blood red armor almost seeming to drown out all the others as the lights above danced over him.
Once it seemed everyone was in place, Cardinal began to speak. "Brothers and Sisters of The Knight's Obsidian, guides of The Confederacy, my lord." He spoke addressing the entire room, his near crimson eyes seemingly falling on every single person before finally they rested on Darth Metus. He raised a hand in the air, curling it into a tight fist. "It is through the valiant service of our Knight's that The Confederacy enjoys such prosperity and security. Today we come together to honor one of our more seasoned Knight's. Kurenai Yumi."
"Today Knight Yumi will take her final oath for The Confederacy, and rise to the rank of Master in our order." His deep voice thundered over the hall as he spoke.
