#1918333 Rebirth

Posted by Valad Yar on 25 February 2019 - 09:49 PM

Valad Yar was silent as the ships began to arrive to his small island on Bestine IV, each one carrying the newest members of the Reborn Brotherhood of the Sith. Others were allies and comrades Valad Yar had encountered, and hoped they would become good comrades in the days to come. There weren't many of them, at least not yet. A few Valad Yar had sent word to personally, while others were coming over their own volition. Whether they came knowing what they were to become part of, Valad Yar was certain that today would be the beginning of a glorious new age. 

 

Behind him, the large metallic structure that was a small branch of the Exarite Corporation rose from the beach, the sudden change irregular and stark. Within, numerous rooms had been prepared for the gathering, as well as halls for food, entertainment, and learning. Knowledge was always a driving focus of the Reborn Brotherhood of the Sith, and all members would have equal access to the knowledge that Valad Yar had spent the past decade carefully gathering. 

 

Stepping off the porch of his small wooden hut in front of the metallic structure, Valad Yar walked to meet his new comrades.

"If you have no business with Sith, then perhaps you will do business with an archaeologist. I want what is in that temple to benefit not only myself, but everyone. The knowledge stored there could help cure an ailment, provide understanding of the nature of the universe in a brand new way. Look beyond your preconceptions of Light and Dark, Jedi and Sith and think of the good we could do if we uncover all that is within that temple." To an extent, Valad Yar was being honest. The knowledge that could be found in the temple could benefit more people than just himself, though whether or not he would actually spend the extra effort to do it would be another story. Still, he could cross that bridge if they eventually got there. 

 

The first step would involve surviving the next few minutes.

"Well, given your preconception of Sith, would you have honestly allowed me to come to this world if I had asked? And as for this temple, the knowledge held within could prove to be greatly beneficial, both for you, and for myself." He paused for a brief moment as the wall of flame erupted before him. It was an impressive feet of Force ability, though it wasn't directed at him as a weapon. It was a show of strength, and warning that she would not be taken lightly or by surprise. Valad Yar let a smile cross his face as she let the fire fall, beginning to approach him now. Coming to a halt, he folded his hands behind his back, looking up at the Queen. 

 

"I come with this offer, without desire to fight."

Valad Yar smiled as Stardust Solus Skirae confronted him, barely paying attention to her daughter as she rushed inside the small house. Valad Yar extended his hands out in front of him, and with a simple use of the Force he tossed his own lightsaber across the ground, out of arms reach. Effectively disarmed, Valad Yar began to slowly walk forward, keeping his hands out and visible. It would not be much of an issue for him to call his lightsaber back to him, but he hoped the thought would count here. He would defend himself if necessary, but combat was not his goal here today. 

 

"Your Majesty, I have no interest to quarrel with you, I have come merely to speak with you. I seek a temple that ancient texts tell me is located on this world. With your permission, and hopefully your company, I wish to seek it out. You will be welcome to anything I find there as well."




#1917980 Journey to the Darkest Heart

Posted by Valad Yar on 24 February 2019 - 04:49 PM

Valad Yar walked down the ramp of the ship, wrapping the cloth around his face once. He felt the difference immediately, the change in the air, the coldness at the edge of his mind despite the heat of the world. The presence of those long since dead was overwhelming. He felt...powerful. The fact that most of those spirits here would consider him a false Sith, a failure to the so called "superior" teachings of their kind bothered him little. He would do what he wanted, how he wanted, and when he wanted. He had the knowledge, the power, and the understanding of how and when to use both. Whether the spirits liked it or not, Valad Yar was a true Sith, and he was going to prove it. To them, and to the rest of this bloody galaxy. All it would take is time. 

 

Looking around at the complex of ruins and tombs spread out around them, Valad Yar pulled a small device from his belt, flipping it open. After several seconds of peeping a holographic display appeared above the device. It showed a full three hundred and sixty degree layout of the terrain around them, including the vast caverns deep beneath the surface of where they stood. The device was an old archaeologists tool he had kept and improved since that time in his life. He was certain the device would come in exceptional use now. Turning to Orex Mauda and Ronak, he glanced up at them briefly before returning his eyes to the device. 

 

"Where would you suggest we begin?"

Valad Yar was quite as he walked up the hill, the planet official walking numbly by his side, the mans eyes glassy. As he crested the hill and spotted the simple house, Valad Yar waved the man back, his weakened mind following the simple commands with ease as he simply stopping moving, becoming a perfect statue. Valad Yar left him behind, his pure black shirt and pants catching the breeze on top of the hill as he approached, the open front of his shirt showing numerous tattoos, and the lightsaber at his hip shifting slightly with each step. As he drew closer, he could make out the two figures practicing before the house, and even from this distance Valad Yar could detect the individuals strength. This meeting was going to be much more interesting than he originally suspected. 

 

Coming to a halt several meters away from the two, Valad Yar extended his right hand out away from his body, twisting it as he slowly bowed his head to the Queen of Imahalyan. "Your Majesty, it is a pleasure to finally meet you..."

Valad Yar nodded his head, stepping to the side to allow Aren D'Shade to approach the Holocron. He spared one more glance at the droids with the young woman before turning and walking off the platform, approaching one of the scientists at the side. The man quickly bowed his head and stepped aside as Valad Yar walked forward, typing a few commands into the terminal there and bringing up readouts for the rest of the facility. Other projects were still underway across the site, many other scientists and workers dedicating their lives to the mighty growing Exarite Corporation. Each work would garner Valad Yar's attention at a later time, but for no he had to focus on the task at hand. 

 

Typing in a simple command, the cameras and security guards in this part of the facility were taken offline. Turning back to the woman he hoped would one day become the first of many in his grand designs, he watched her tinker and work on the Holocron. Feeling a trickle of sweat coming down his forehead, he quickly wiped it away. The moment he and Aren had entered the room, he had been exerting a constant cloak of Dark Side energy over the Holocron itself, keeping the spirit held within quite. If he let his focus slip for a moment, then all those within the room, including Aren would hear the words of the ancient follower of Exar Kun. 

 

He was not ready for her to hear those words just yet.

Valad Yar closed the first book he had been reading, bringing his hand up to his eyes and slowly rubbing them as he moved away. The knowledge held within the pages of these books were not simply held in the text. When the authors had been writing them, they had poured their control of the Dark Side into the very pages themselves. As he read the words, the Dark Side energy within the pages was pouring into his mind. The two sources of knowledge put together taught him far more than any normal book could, but the sheer process of learning from them was exhausting. He would have to take time in between reading the books for his mind and body to recover. Rising from where he sat in the hold of the ship, he departed and made his way towards the bridge. 

 

He stepped up into the cockpit and nodded to Ronak and Orex Mauda as he glanced out the viewport, his eyes taking in the desert that had once been the beginning of the ancient Sith Empires. Shaking his head he turned to his two companions, leaning against one of the walls as he began to speak. "Whatever it is we go to find here, we must be quick. It will not take long for the Sith here to put together our ships sudden departure and the death of that Acolyte. If we do not conclude our search quickly, it will not take the Academy long to locate us. Unless we wish to fight a running battle while searching for your relics, we best find the exact location as quickly and efficiently as possible." What Valad Yar kept to himself was the fact he would be taking the time to look for his own Holocron. If his two companions did not know of it, all the better. This one he sought would truly only be worthwhile to him.




#1917376 Uncovering the Past

Posted by Valad Yar on 23 February 2019 - 12:00 PM

Valad Yar was quick on the heels of Ronak as he sprinted after the bird, his own speed being augmented slightly by use of the Force to keep up with the wolf warrior. He would not fall behind, not now. As he continued on his path, he began to think again of the task at hand. If he could find the specific location of the Thought Bomb, and access the site, he could find what he wanted. The spirits of the long dead had been released, but so much concentrated Dark Side energy would not be dealt with so easily. The concentration of hundreds of Sith spirits at the location would have left marks behind, marks of power and knowledge that if accessed, could potentially benefit Valad Yar greatly. Perhaps there would even be the remnants of broken Sith spirits there. It had happened in the past, determined Sith that refused to pass into whatever laid beyond, even after pushed to do so remained. They would be weak, but if enough of them were still there...

 

The prospect was both promising and worrying as Valad Yar came to be almost level with the gait of Ronak, his eyes staring directly ahead as the bird began to guide them ever closer to the Valley of the Jedi. Tightening his hands into fists, he began to prepare himself for what was to come. His quest would either be decided here, or it would become an abject failure. The sheer possibility of failure was worrying.

Valad Yar smiled at the simplicity, yet accuracy of the words Ronak spoke. "You are correct, it was a Sith creation, but the Jedi of that time were much different from what they are today. They were much less peace keepers and more warlords and planetary governors. Jedi Lords they called themselves. But a small detail, the Thought Bomb was a weapon created by the Force, that when released, consumed the life energy of all Force-Sensitive for many kilometers in any direction. The destruction it brought to Ruusan when deployed by the ancient Brotherhood of Darkness was extreme. Hundreds of Sith and Jedi were killed, and many thousands more others were lost. An added side effect was the spirits of those Sith and Jedi caught in the blast were trapped within the Thought Bomb, which as far as I know still exists, waiting." Valad Yar fell silent for several seconds as the pair continued to walk, shaking his head briefly. 

 

"I plan to find that device, in truth. The spirits of the ancient Sith held within interest me greatly, the knowledge and power they hold could be beneficial to me and the future of the galaxy. But it does pose risks..." He fell silent again as he continued along, his shoulders sagging slightly as he looked off into the distance. Perhaps he had spoken too much, but Valad Yar was putting faith in the fact that perhaps Ronak could be trusted with some of the inner workings of his plans. It would be a great boon to have him as an ally for those things yet to come.

Valad Yar barely paid the dock official any mind, glancing at him only briefly. The mans eyes went pure white as he stumbled backwards, his weak mind overwhelmed and broken with a mere thought from the agitated Sith. The dock official simply stood in place as Valad Yar ascended the ramp, heading back into the hold. He secured for himself a small spot in the vessel, unloading his bag on a crate and spreading the books out across them. With little time to waste he opened the first one and began to read, his mind devouring the information within the pages of the book as he closed himself off from the rest of the world around him, focusing all his effort on the task at hand. 

 

Each book he had taken was a script written by ancient followers of Exar Kun, the original Sith that created the Sith Academy on Korriban. They were largely ignored by the modern Sith, but to Valad Yar, they were priceless. They would go a long way to educating Valad Yar and those that he would gather in the future, and begin the process for which he would rebuild the ancient legacy of Exar Kun. Perhaps he could find more allies on this mission, perhaps not. But at the moment, he already had aquired something worth the trip alone. Halfway through one of the books though, something caught Valad Yar's mind. It spoke of an ancient holocron stored on Korriban, an ancient one that supposedly Exar Kun himself had created and passed along to his disciples. It had come to Korriban, and had been lost to time. Even better, the last known location was near the site the expedition was travelling to already. Valad Yar would find this holocron, he promised himself as he kept reading, hoping to find more secrets.

Valad Yar was surprised by the arrival of the student, and he began to reach out with the Force to dominate his mind when Oren Mauda acted, brutally finishing off the student and then hiding the body. It was an effective solution,though perhaps not the best given the circumstances. They could have dealt with the student much as the guard outside, buying them time and covering their tracks. Now with a dead body in the equation, they were on the clock. Eventually the body would be found, and then not only would they be barred from the Academy, they would be hunted across Korriban. This recovery mission had suddenly become a possible close combat operation as Valad Yar saw it. He was glad he had decided to bring his lightsaber with him. 

 

Moving to follow the others, he briefly glanced at Ronak, a prickling interest at the back of his mind drawing attention to the wolf warrior. Something was there...Valad Yar was certain of that. He did not have time to concentrate on it now, but he would deal with the matter later. First and foremost they had to escape this Academy before the the body was discovered, and they needed to be a long way outside the range of the cannons scattered through the valley before they were hunted. It was certainly going to be a very interesting trip.

 

Luckily he had already found what he had been looking for.

Posted by Valad Yar on 18 February 2019 - 01:13 PM

The obvious place to look for the item Valad Yar sought would be in the Valley of the Jedi. It was a massive place, with numerous different cave entrances and locations to explore, but Valad Yar couldn't be entirely certain. He wanted to first ensure what he sought was not anywhere else before he entered that dark place. It could have been moved since then to another location for all he knew. The stories he had heard of what happened there...the destruction the device he sought had caused was something even he was nervous about. The mere name brought goosebumps to his flesh as he scanned the horizon, looking for some other place it might be as he and Ronak made their way down the river. As their journey continued, Valad Yar began to dread more and more, coming to be certain he knew where it would likely be...

 

Shaking the thoughts from his head, Valad Yar turned his gaze to the city in the distance, visible but not entirely so. The Silver Jedi Order would have the location heavily defended, no doubt. And it was likely he would not be able to get anywhere near it in his present state. However, should the mission at hand be successful, he just might be able to achieve a goal he had believed to be a mere fantasy, a goal he couldn't quite grasp. The thought of that event brought some warmth back to his body and he turned back to the search. 

 

Grimacing, Valad Yar turned to Ronak, his voice quite and withdrawn as he spoke to the warrior. "Tell me, have you heard of an object known as a Thought Bomb...?

Posted by Valad Yar on 18 February 2019 - 11:23 AM

Valad Yar was silent as he moved through the archives, his eyes taking in the vast amounts of information and knowledge that was kept here. The sheer amount of it was almost daunting, though he kept himself in check as he inspected a small collection of scrolls detailing one of the numerous Sith civil wars in the past. However, he put them down when he felt a pull at the back of his mind, a siren call to a shelf halfway across the room. Here, a small collection of ancient books were haphazardly stacked, as if discarded for countless years. Valad Yar picked up the first one, running his hand across the dusty surface of the book to reveal the title. The moment he read it, Valad Yar opened the book and began reading through the first few pages at a fast pace, consuming all the knowledge within. 

 

Looking back at the shelf, Valad Yar began to inspect all the books, stacking them neatly together as he looked around the room. He spotted a small bag laying on a table, likely left by a student after his studying session. Valad Yar extended his hand and the bag shot to him, and he began to put the books within the bag. He glanced around to ensure no one other than his companions were watching, before walking back towards the table, the full bag making a resounding thud as he placed it on the table. He then extended his right hand, placing two fingers on the top of the bag, while bringing his left hand underneath, forming a small diamond with his fingers. He spoke several words in the ancient language of the Sith, as well as other, harsher words. When he was done, a brief flash of purple flame shot from his fingers to seemingly consume the bag, burning it away to nothing. Finished, Valad Yar reached down and picked up where the bag was, tying it around himself. 

 

It was a simple spell he had learned a few years ago. The bag was hidden from the eyes of most, but if someone took the time to focus and reach out with the Force, they would be able to see it. Valad Yar just hoped no one would be that bothered. Moving back through the library, he began to look for anything else of value.

Posted by Valad Yar on 16 February 2019 - 02:28 PM

Valad Yar ignored both of them as he walked up the ramp of the Academy, his presence naturally forcing students and teachers alike to step out of his way as he approached the guard. The guard readied himself as Valad Yar approached, the hostility evident in his gate as he came to a stop just before him. The guard opened his mouth to speak, but no words came out as he made eye contact with Valad Yar. Those close enough could feel a sudden burst of Dark Side energy, going back and forth for several seconds before the guards eyes suddenly took on a glassy look. He reached into his own uniform and brought out a medallion that he extended to Valad Yar, briefly bowing his head to the Sith before stepping to the side and leaving the path open. 

 

Turning back to his companions, Valad Yar held up the medallion in the light. "Found one. Lets us move quickly, he will not remain like this for too long..." He slipped the medallion into his pocket as he waited for his companions to approach, before following them into the Academy itself. Valad Yar paused briefly as he looked around at the Academy, the place unknown to him, yet familiar all at once. He felt a connection to this place, much like he did on Yavin Four. The pure connection to the Dark Side of the Force was powerful and all encompassing here. Valad Yar felt refreshed, revitalized within the depths of the Academy. He untied the cloth around his mouth and nose, lowering it so he could breath easier as he looked around. 

 

He felt a tug towards one side of the Academy, a distant voice in the back of his mind calling him. In a moment Valad Yar realized what it was, and smiled. He found found what he had come to look for. Now, it was just a matter of getting to it.
