The Green Jedi had always been an important part of the Corellian Identity. Through all of its bids for independence from whatever Republic or Alliance it was a part of, the Green Jedi always stood by the Corellian people and did them right. They were the Guardians of Light in the Corellian Sector and did so with distinction and honor. Quin's brother had been a Green Jedi and had long since perished at the Battle of Coruscant and so he felt like he had a special sort of connection with those Jedi who protected his homeworld. It had been many years since he'd been to Corellia, not since before the world had been merged with another through some perversion of the Force had he been back. To return to his homeworld and see it as active, healthy, and vibrant as he remembered it on this day...It nearly brought a tear to his eye.
The Emerald Promise's first flight.
He'd heard about it months earlier from one of the Green Jedi that had known his family since he was a child. She was also a Mirialan and had been his brother's padawan and they were about the same age.
"You have to come back! Its going to be grand!" Grand was one way to put it as he passed through the crowd of cheering Corellians at Freedom Park as he walked with his mother and father to the starport in a grand procession of Green Jedi, temple volunteers, and family of Green Jedi both past and present. They were headed to the Emerald Promise, the massive Jedi Praxeum ship fresh out of the shipyards and he couldn't be more proud.
Hundreds of select press, tourists, and Jedi from the Jedi Academy Networkwere arriving at the Starport or directly at the battlecruiser-sized vessel. There were plenty of things to do on the planet as well. Green Jedi padawans and learners were giving tours of the Floating Temple and down in the streets of Coronet there was a small celebration around the starport.
When he exited the ship and entered the hangar he felt his breath escape him as all around him volunteers, Jedi, astromechs and other aiddroids hurried around completing their tasks even on this momentous day. As a scholar of the Force he felt incredibly privileged to be there.
