Stewjon, A day after the events in A Deadly Response 3.
Harash Soru: "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. As Jedi we understand that death is merely another part of life, a time to join the Force in the never ending journey. But this does not mean we feel sorrow at the passing of our friends. Umdar Quan and Darl Shogar were fine Padawan and would have made fine Jedi Knights. We brought them here to train them, but the Force had a different destiny for them."
Harash Soru: "And so we will mourn their passing, we will remember them along with the other Jedi of our order who have fallen, Master Sheppard, Padawan Sel-Quia, and others. We will remeber them."
Ben Dovallia: "I cannot stand by any longer! They could have been saved!"
Shaak Ti: "Master Dovallia please!"
Ben Dovallia: "No Master Ti! This must be said! You sit here Master Soru and preach to us the importance of trusting each other, holding true to the ideas of our Order. Yet you stand here, with both a lover and knowledge of the power of the Dark Side! You are a hypocrite!"
Ben Dovallia: "All my life I have walked the fringes of the Galaxy, seeing terrible things happening to good people. And I cannot do anything to help because I do not have the power! Master Soru has power, but he refuses to share his knowledge with us! Like all members of the so called council he sits and does nothing, letting good people die!"
Voolvif Monn: "Master Dovallia you go to far!"
Ben Dovallia: "No Master Monn, you do not go far enough! Look around, how many of you agree with me?"
Gath Prime: "Master Dovallia is right! We deserve this power to!"
Rade Danar: "I feel as though something is kept secret from us."
Astron Zonaca: "I apologise Master Soru, but I to feel something about this is wrong."
Jordan Bordo: "As do I."
Harash Soru: "Your apologies aren't necessary my friends. I realise my situation is difficult to understand. But if you will allow me I think I can explain..."
Ilum, a day later.
Jordan Bordo: "Why have we come here Master Soru?"
Harash Soru: "Ilum is a place strong in the Force. It is here that I can show you why I can do this."
Harash Soru: "Come everyone, let us meditate together. Close your minds off to all sound, to the cold, hear my voice and focus on my mind."
Harash Soru: "My family has always had a strong tie to the Jedi Order. And I am not the only one to have come to face Darth Nihilus. The famous 'Jedi Exile' is my ancestor."
Harash Soru: "When she killed Darth Nihilus the Sith Lord's power was broken. In order to survive it latched itself onto the closest and most powerful object, the Exile herself. This power, or the spirit of it at least has been passed down through every Force sensitive in my family. It is only now that I have learnt of it."
Harash Soru: "The power is the Sith that lives within me. We say that there is a Sith hidden within everyone, only it is hard to distinguish. The Sith that lives within me however, is like a black spot on a sheet of white. Easy to see and easy to control. That is why I hold this power, because whatever happens, the Jedi inside of me will always outshine the Sith."
Gath Prime: "But surely we could all learn this power given proper training?"
Ben Dovallia: "No Gath, we cannot. I see now that I was wrong to doubt you Master Soru. Your power is something that none of us could hope to gain mastery of. I am sorry."
Harash Soru: "To doubt is to learn, Ben Dovallia. I doubt myself all the time, but when I look at our order and what we have acheived in such a short time, I feel reassured that we are doing something right."
Ben Dovallia: "I understand. May the Force be with you Master Soru."
