The Promotion of:
Jedi Master, Romi Jade.
At the head of the ceremonial hall of the home of the Silver Jedi upon Kashyyyk, Veiere Arenais stood proudly dressed in the garb of the Order, that was now his home. Today's Order of Jedi was not that of the former single body structure that Veiere had been raised in, but made up out of differing organizations of Jedi Students, Knights and Masters, all of whom put their various strengths and skills towards the common good of Galactic Society, as well as the pursuit of enlightenment and peace within the Force. The reason for Veiere's standing there, before the crowded room of senior members of the Silver Jedi Order, as well as friends and associates of their Organization, was the promotion of a younger Woman whom had held a pivotal place in his own life and his role as a Mentor.
Romi Jade had once been his Padawan, though would always be thought of as his Apprentice for that Veiere did not wish to lose the relationship that they had formed over the many years of his training the younger woman; Later, he would come to meet her own Padawan, the young Aten Ramses. He of whom sought Veiere out for his lessons in the practice of Force Light.
These recent years that Romi had been put through however, Veiere would never wish upon anyone. His brief fall to the Darkside following the foundation of the Jedi Order upon Deneba, and the actions that he had committed, she had taken especially hard, and only these passed weeks had Veiere learned that Taeli Raaf had managed to further influence the woman's instability to draw her over to the ways of the Sith. Together, with Coren Starchaser whom held deep personal ties with Romi Jade, fought tooth and nail to free her from this corruption.
To overcome the Dark Side of the Force, a great strength of will is required within those afflicted; Try as they did, the success of Romi Jade's return to the Jedi all depended on her strength of character and her refusal to let go of the life she had known before. To many others, Romi had been a great friend. A Mentor. Family under the Order of the Jedi. She had been a Woman of integrity and great faith in the Force. The perseverance that she had shown within her training, had returned to prove that even though she had fallen, Romi Jade would pick herself back up, with her head held high as the Jedi Knight that she was known for...Soon, to be given the rank of Jedi Master.
"Romi Jade, please step forward." Veiere spoke with an elevated voice, that all the room would hear him and the words that he had to offer his former Padawan. She would be at the front, positioned within the center of the room, only a couple steps below him and now invited to join him at the head of the great hall. It was Veiere's honor as her former Mentor, that he be given this privilege. It was one that he would do with the utmost pride and professionalism.
