Casting Call: Star Wars: The Sith Resurrection Part IX: The Eleventh Hour

In the year since the Seizing of Coruscant, the galaxy has fallen completely apart. With the effective dissolution of the Third Galactic Republic, the Undying Sith Empire has quickly managed to take most of the Republic's territory. Recognising the threat that the Sith Empire poses, the remnants of the New Empire and the Republic have put aside their differences, and amalgamated to form the Galactic Resistance. While the Resistance's efforts have not gone unnoticed, they would seem inconsequential to the Sith's true plans...

As always, here are links to the previous RP's, and a timeline of events in the series:
Part I: The Sith Resurrection
Part II: Rise of the Jedi
Part III: Last Stand of the Republic
Part IV: Alliances Divided
Part V: The Threefold War
Part VI: Death to the Sith
Part VII: A Glimmer of Hope
Part VIII: Wrath of the Empire

Show spoiler

Character Sheet
Sexual Orientation: (Since Part IV was the first LGBT-related RP in the series, it seemed necessary to add this. Unless you state otherwise, it will be assumed that your character is open about their sexuality)
Description: (This is only necessary for characters of mixed species, which are fairly common in this series)

Name: Komad Kaltas
Species: Half-Human, Half-Twi'lek
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
Homeworld: Coruscant
Affiliation: Galactic Resistance, Jedi Order
Title: Jedi Master
Weapon: Twin linking lightsabers (blue)
DOB: 67 ABY (age 46)

Backstory: Skilled in both lightsaber combat and diplomacy, Komad has bested numerous Sith Lords in battle, but has not personally killed any. When given the chance to kill Darth Virul at Bastion, he decided not to, knowing that Virul was more dangerous dead than alive. However, the decision was taken out of his hands, and Virul escaped anyway. A year after the loss of his wife, Komad became romantically involved with Iyav Dourden, a former smuggler working as a security trainee at Huntau station. He then travelled to Setna and aided in freeing Andorra Evenstar from the clutches of Darth Virul. Following Iyav's joining Republic Intelligence, they acquired a stock freighter named the Silver Eagle, and started working together, and were recently sent by Supreme Commander Leana Belina to investigate the disappearance of the Republic Star Destroyer Cygnus.

Name: Kalla Kaltas
Species: One quarter-Human, one quarter-Twi'lek, half-Rodian
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
Homeworld: Coruscant
Affiliation: Galactic Resistance, Jedi Order
Title: Jedi Knight
Weapon: Single-bladed lightsaber (gold)
DOB: 91 ABY (age 22)
Description: Like this:

Instead of wearing a traditional Jedi Tunic, Kalla wears a black sleeveless tunic, which also shows some cleavage, and a short skirt instead of typical pants.
Backstory: Kalla was born at the end of the Resurrection War to Komad and Greea Bodonawieedo Kaltas. In her Jedi training, she focused on the Niman lightsaber form, which eventually allowed her to defeat Andirrul in lightsaber combat. A year ago, she met and fell in love with Andorra Evenstar, princess of the Avalon system, after her mother, the governor, was kidnapped by Darth Virul, but lost her after Andorra, in a fit of rage, killed Virul and became his new host. Two months ago, she entered into a relationship with Andorra's cousin Tonatius Iazoki. At Setna, she tricked Virul into thinking she would offer herself in Andorra's place, and destroyed his spirit when he tried to take it. After Andorra was freed, they did not resume their relationship, and Kalla remained with Tonatius. Following her ordeal on Setna, the Jedi Council deemed her ready to granted the title of Jedi Knight. After the destruction of the RSS Cygnus, the Jedi Council sent her to lead an investigation of the abandoned New Imperial base on Geonosis. There, she discovered Darth Pestilus, the new Dark Lord of the Sith, and the Republic's first information about the Undying Sith Empire. She lost an arm during a fight with the Dark Lord, but thanks to Doctor Pradhes, she was able to regain full use of her original arm. Her actions were greatly influential in the events leading up to the Seizing of Coruscant.

Name: Iyav Dourden
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Gay
Homeworld: Ord Mantell
Affiliation: Galactic Resistance, Republic Intelligence
Title: Operative
Weapon: DL-62 Blaster Pistol
DOB: 77 ABY (age 36)

Backstory: After a somewhat unsuccessful smuggling career, Iyav decided to try his hand at security work, and got a job at Huntau Station, which proved to be less to his liking than he initially thought. Then he met Komad Kaltas, who inspired him to lead a resistance at Huntau against invading New Imperial forces. After being defeated, Iyav broke his fellow security guards out of the brig of Velerc's flagship, and sabotaged Khorzan Velerc's plans. After making his way to Setna in a stolen New Imperial shuttle, he aided in keeping Andorra Evenstar alive until they could get her to a proper hospital. After that ordeal, he left his job at Huntau Station, and started working for Republic Intelligence. During his stint as a smuggler, he married a Republic Guardsman named Jareth Krotan, but he soon saw his husband for what he really was: a brute, willing to sacrifice innocent lives for the sake of his mission, and just as cruel at home. Not long after an extremely unpleasant divorce, Iyav heard rumours that Jareth's brutality caught the interest of Echelon 5. Through his influence, the Director of Republic Intelligence was convinced to join the Galactic Resistance, and the organisation survived the Republic's collapse.

Name: Darth Pestilus
Species: Human or possibly a near-human species (noone is quite sure)
Gender: Male

Affiliation: Undying Sith Empire, Sith Order
Title: Dark Lord of the Sith, Emperor
Weapon: Single-bladed lightsaber (red), he also plays on fear to demoralise his foes
DOB: Unknown
Description: He hides behind a long black cloak obscuring most of his face in shadow, though his eyes appear to glow through it.

Backstory: How he eluded the Jedi and the Republic for so long remains a mystery, however, it is widely suspected that he had a hand in the bio-weapon used against the Republic Star Destroyer Cygnus. He is also known to use his enemy's fears and anxieties against them. While he lacks the intolerance and prejudice of his predecessor, he is still utterly without mercy or conscience, willing to gas an entire Star Destroy in order to kill one man, or bomb a planet into submission just to prove a point.

Name: Kol Skywalker
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Homeworld: Ossus
Affiliation: Galactic Resistance, Jedi Order
Title: Jedi Grand Master
Weapon: Single-bladed lightsaber (blue)

Shortly after his promotion to Knighthood he was dispatched to the planet Cathar to deal with a group of pirates who were terrorizing the local population. It was during this mission that he met his future wift(Jirila). The two of them began a relationship after the pirate threat was dealt with. Unfortunatly, Varith had to leave and return to Coruscant.

Three years after he left Cathar, he was sent back to Cathar a few years before the war began due to increased pirate activity in the sector. Upon arrival, his ship was shot down and crashed on Cathar. After escaping his wrecked ship, he ran to find that the home of Jirila had been destroyed and that his beloved was dead. After finding his beloved dead he went into a blind rage and attacked the pirates and he slaughtered them.

It was shortly after this that Varith turned his back on the jedi and instead of helping them, he began to hunt them. As of now he blames the Jedi for the death of his wife since they didn't allow him to return to Cathar sooner.

He is now serving as a sith Apprentice and has commited himself to learning as much as he can about killing jedi.

I only know the bare essentials of the series, but I swore to myself back when this was in Part IV that I would join in at some point. If this is, as Alkonium says, the final instalment, I'm definitely in. I'll have a character up as soon as I can come up with one... I have a vague sketch in mind, and will take maybe a day or two to flush it out properly.

Fair warning though: I'm working two jobs these days, and I may end up being a bit slow in posting sometimes. If that's okay with you guys, I'll hop on board ASAP. If it's going to be a problem though, let me know now and I'll stay away.

Here's what I've got for my character so far. Once I talk to Alkonium about a few details, I'll be able to finish the rest of it and get it posted.

Name: Nasrene Kaytlen.
Species: Human.
Gender: Female.
Age: Just under 24 standard years (born in 89ABY).
Sexual Orientation: Generally open, but prefers human or near-human females.
Appearance: ~Image Link
  • Height: 165.1cm (~5'5").
  • Weight: 52.8kg (~116.4lbs).
  • Skin Colour: Caucasian.
  • Hair Colour: Brunette.
  • Eye Colour: Blue.
  • Clothing: All the clothing Nasrene owns once belonged to her mother - all she has left of her, now. Her preferred outfit consists of a sleeveless, low-cut, floral print tunic and black leather pants. She also occasionally wears an old black leather jacket, almost too small for her.
Homeworld: None.
Affiliation: None.
Weapons: None.

Background: Nasrene was born in space, on a small freighter in the Mid Rim. Her mother had been young herself when she gave birth - only seventeen years old. She had been sent away from her small homeworld by her own parents, though Nasrene never knew why - her mother lived long enough to see her first steps, but little beyond that. For many years she knew nothing of her father beyond the fact that he was human, just as her mother was.

After her mother's death, Nasrene was left in an orphanage in the Halori sector. The administration of the orphanage was unstable at best, and before her tenth birthday the facility had been operated by three different people - and by her fifteenth, that number had climbed to eight. None of these administrators were abusive or unkind, but as Nasrene and those of her agegroup got older, there was less time for them as attention was regularly diverted to the younger residents.

Nasrene became quite popular as she entered adolescence and grew into both her features and her figure quite well. The unstable and diminishing care they received in their adolescence led to a great deal of unsupervised time, which in turn led to inordinate amounts of both self and group exploration. Nasrene came to have very few, if any, inhibitions as far as her physicality was concerned. She quickly found herself become very popular as a result.

In the years leading up to her nineteenth birthday, Nasrene learned as much from the orphanage as she could about her family. The freighter captain had given his own name when he dropped her off, and the name of his ship had been logged. After her nineteenth birthday, the orphanage was no longer able to care for her by the local planetary law. She was given a small amount of money before being sent away, which she used to buy passage offworld. She first sought information about her mother, but was unsure where to start and thus found nothing. She instead spent a month and a half in search of any information on the freighter on which she was born. She found that its usual route passed immediately through the Halori sector, and managed, just as her mother had before her, to buy passage with the last of her money.

From here she learned as much about her mother as the few crewmembers who had known her could remember. She learned that her name had been Jeska; she had come from a world called Ganyllyn in the remote Tanesh system; that she had been sent offworld by her own parents, though none of the crew had ever been told why; and that she had often dreamt of a man named Corwin, whose name she called out in her sleep. It can be assumed that this 'Corwin' is Nasrene's father, though no one ever knew his full name or where on Ganyllyn he might have once been. She also learned nothing of her grandparents beyond their surname.

Until, one day, she was captured by a man named Kavrik Zell, a mercenary and bounty hunter claiming to be on the payroll of a Mr. and Mrs. Corwin Castell Sr. He had been hired to take her with him back to Ganyllyn - and had evidently made no provisions in his contract for either her comfort or physical safety. Zell is currently holding her in the holdings cells of his vessel, en route back to Ganyllyn at full speed.

Here I am. Back again and playing my troupe of characters.

Name: Tavaryn Onashi (Full name: Tavaryn Onashi Kenobi)
Species: Human/Avalonian
Gender: Male
Age: Born during the purge after the Clone Wars
Sexual Orientation: Hetero
Homeworld: None he can truly call home but he visits family on Avalon
Affiliation: Shinigami/Republic Feet
Description: Black uniform with insignas regarding rank on the Ackbar; hazel eyes; dirt blonde hair; muscled and flexible due to Shinigami and some Jedi fighting skills; six feet high; shinigami outfit (in storage)
Weapons: katana blade; blue bladed lightsaber belonging to his father; shuriken; deadly with hands and feet; heavy assault rifle

Backstory: The youngest of the Starlighter children born in a secret location during the purge of the Jedi. He moved around with his mother learning nothing of Jedi techniques but of the sentou abilities. He eventually did master some Jedi abilities but preferred to live in the anonymity of non-Jedi. He became a member of the Shinigami, the secret organization that were said to be the protectors of the Jedi Order. How or why that, it is not certain but Tavaryn firmly believes in protecting the Jedi Order from any threat of subterfuge. After the battle at Setna, he stuck around mainly for the benefit of Alriana in helping her understand this new world she was in. On occasion he takes off on a mission leaving few details. Knowing the nature of the Shimigami, no one dares to ask. He prefers fighting with his sword and hands and feet but will not hesitate to use the lightsaber he has carried since he was a youngling.

After Setna, he partnered with Alriana Haltra, a Jedi from the days of the Clone Wars going on various missions. After an incident on Geonosis, they separated only to find out two years after that they both joined the Republic Fleet under Admiral Belina. Serving as a combat instructor, Tavaryn found himself as Alpha Leader of Alpha Team, the famous special ops team. In order to be able to fully utilize the state of the art battlesuits, all members had to undergo an implant surgery which enabled faster reaction times as well as improved visual acuity and accuracy.

Currently he is in a relationship with Alriana.

Name: Tonatius and Taryn Iazoki
Species: Avalonian
Gender: Male (twins)
Affiliation: Bushida warriors/Republic
Title: Tonatius recieved the distinction of Guardian, Taryn is known as the Shuǐ zhǔ
or Water Lord for his ability at bending water
Weapon: Both carry the traditional katana blade of Avalonians. Tonatius's blade is uniquely serrated near the tip and Taryn's guard has the decoration of water and the blade is engraved with the legendary water draigon.
Description: Identical twins but Tonatius wears the traditional warrior garb of Bushida warriors while his twin wears a tunic and pants in the cerulean colors of the waters of Atzlan emphasizing his role as a water lord. Tonatius has the promise mark on the underside of his right wrist indicating his devotion to Kalla. Loyalty and love give him the will to fight and he will not hesitate to act if it necessary. Taryn wears gaunlets on his wrists decorated with the signs of Aztlan nobility. Both twins have tattoos on their lower backs indicating their parentage and heritage.

Name: Andros Kaltas
Species: Twi'lek/Rodian
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Hetero
Affiliation: Jedi
Weapon: Yellow bladed lightsaber
Description: Looks very much like his father but has the green hues of his mother along with the antennae of the Rodian. Dark hair and dark brown eyes that absorb everything. He is still a padawan and follows his master around on missions. He dresses in the traditional padawan robes and trains with his master. He has an interest in security and computer systems, keeping the Ackbar's controls up to date and currently is with his master.

Name: Jun-la Starlighter
Species: Avalonian
Orientation: Hetero
DOB: (same age as Ben Skywalker would be)
Affiliation: Jedi
Description: She honors the face of her grandmother with dark brown hair and amber eyes. She does have blonde streaks in her hair as a result from her use of sentou combined with the Force. Wears a 3/4 sleeve top (white) the top stops at her midriff. Wears pants with knee high boots.
Backstory: Daughter of Andros Starlighter, she taught Greea and Komad's son to be a Jedi but left him at the temple when they left for Setna. Upon returning she continued training him until he was allowed tobecome a full Jedi Knight. She also returned in a relationship with the scoundrel Matton Rand. She now spends time training younglings and going out on assignments always at a state of readiness, as if expecting a battle any moment.

After two years, another addition was made to the Starlighter family. Knowing that it was difficult, Jun-la made the choice to raise her daughter outside the Jedi Temple while she trains her padawan. Currently she is with her padawan on the Ackbar.

I'm in too! Thanks again Alkonium for accepting this guy. Really didn't think you would :P

Everyone else: Please pay special attention to the note for Force-sensitives. You'll find it interesting at the very least

Name: Kavrik Zall
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Straight

Homeworld: Unknown
Affiliation: He claims to be neutral, but he refuses to have anything to do with the Sith or their allies. While he does not seem to be thrilled with the Jedi either, he will at least work with them.

Title: Mercenary
Weapon: A pair of heavy blaster pistols, both heavily modified and in spite of obvious care taken in preserving their functionality, they’re also clearly very old. In addition, he carries an assortment of throwing knives, one long knife, and a cortosis alloy sword.

He also carries two lightsabers; one is a single blade, pale blue in color; the other is half a lightsaber staff, which appears to have been chopped in half, but the other half is not in his possession. The broken staff's blade is burnt orange. He almost never touches either saber; they are clearly trophies from kills that meant a lot to him.

Date of Death: two months BBY
Date of Resurrection: 105 ABY

Description: Image: Kavrik Zall

History: If you look hard enough, there’s a partial record of someone named Kavrik Zall born a few years before the rise of Palpatine’s Empire. He grew up, became a bounty hunter, and under the encouragement of the Empire, he took to hunting Jedi. For reasons unknown early in his career, he proved highly adept at killing or capturing Force sensitive beings. What scattered records there are of this man suggest that he was killed not long before the Battle of Yavin. However, if you compare the only surviving image of that man with one of the mercenary Kavrik Zall alive and well today, you will find they are one and the same.

The story of his death is true; he was killed by a woman named Reibe Vailar, of whom even fewer records have survived. Of her, it is simply known that she was a Force-user, and that she was impossibly old. Her name continued to crop up in the years following his death, the end of Palpatine’s empire, and beyond. Then eight years ago, Kavrik Zall was brought back to life. Two standard weeks later, all mention of Reibe Vailar was lost. Following her death and complete disappearance, Kavrik Zall emerged, calling himself a mercenary and offering his services to anyone who could pay, except anyone allied with the Dark Side. Though it took time, his reputation began to grow. He is now regarded as a highly competent mercenary, adept at facing down any situation, but he thrives when pitted against Force sensitives.

Note for Force-sensitive characters: Reach out for a moment with your Jedi senses, if you will. Take a good look at the man standing before you. What do you sense? It may take you a moment to fully grasp it, so I’ll help you out. You sense nothing. No good, no evil, no thoughts, intentions, emotions, or desires. By all feeling in the Force, this man before you does not exist. There’s no echo of a man that once was; there’s simply nothing.

In his own words: "If you've done any digging through history, you may have come across the prophecy of the Chosen One. It's no secret - or it wasn't in my day - that this was Anakin Skywalker, and he fulfilled the prophecy by defeating his Sith master and saving his son. Touching story really. Now hearing this, you may think I'm set up in some prophecy too. Why would I mention this little tale otherwise, right?"

He'd laugh. "Well it's because I'm the other side of that coin. There were no prophecies concerning me. Couldn't be. I'm the one the Force overlooked. The one not chosen, not for anything, not by anyone. The Force can't see me. That's the reason you Force-users try to find me and get nothing. I'm not here. I can't be. I'm an impossibility and yet here I am. Wrap your superior senses around that."

If he's speaking to a Jedi/light-sider/Gray Force-user aligned lighter, he'd tack on, "Now aren't you glad I'm on your side?"

If he's speaking to a dark-sider, he'd grin menacingly and add, "Now doesn't that just terrify you to death?"

In short, the Force doesn't touch him. Force powers can't be used on him. But he has this sort of innate sense (perhaps born of being beyond the Force's reach) who the Force-users are and which side they lean toward using.

Mom tells me I need brain food... but if writing ain't that, I don't know what is!

My work in progress:
Hidden Histories: The Galaxy Hacker

Have a read, give a review, yah?

Gonna find a way to jump into the middle. Epic battle post for me! Thanks Alkonium, for accepting my character and giving me the idea of joining the RP.

Name: Valek Thegas
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Homeworld: Taris
Affiliation: Galactic Resistance
Title: First Lieutenant
Weapon: Blaster Rifle, Vibroknife, Vibrosword, Lightsaber
DOB: 81 ABY (age 32)
Appearance: Valek has a custom-made armor suit that looks somewhat bulky at first. It actually has a lightweight mesh that allows much more freedom of movement than other types of medium-to-heavy armor, and the plates of armor are made of thin durasteel. His armor colors are maroon and yellow, reflecting the colors of the Old Republic before the Ruusan Reformation. He wields a vibroknife, which is essentially a combat knife, and also a custom blaster rifle. Although it was originally a makeshift rifle, Valek upgraded it to have a scope for added precision, and an alternate firing mode, which allowed him to fire one blaster bolt at a time. The reason why he did this is that instead of spraying blaster bolts everywhere and loosing energy, this allows him to take precision shots and conserve energy. He also has a vibrosword for close quarters, and on rare occasions, his lightsaber. Having surrended his original saber to the Jedi Council due to his exile, he crafted a new one that replaced it. It was not the same, however, as he gave it a purple focusing crystal instead of viridian, and the hilt itself was more of a Juyo style hilt instead of Makashi. He carried three sniper rifle shells on both of his shoulders, a string of shotgun shells on his left wrist, and a string of grenades on his belt. The reason why these are on his armor are unknown, as weapons that produced shells instead of blaster bolts died out long ago. It is possible that they are on his armor for pure ceremonial reason, just for show, or to intimidate opponents.

Bio: Valek used to be a Jedi Knight, trained from birth. Unfortunately, he was exiled due to putting his fellow Jedi in danger during a mission, which led to himself and Izik Lahn - another Jedi - to be the only survivors of the massacre. Instead of fighting the Council, Valek chose to leave the Order, but had to surrender his lightsaber. During his exile, he recreated a new lightsaber and attempted to abandon his Makashi technique for another lightsaber form that he preferred - Juyo. Having learned it as well as Makashi and Jar'Kai, he tryed to improve his technique, but found himself unable to as he had no master to help him. Feeling that this was for naught, he deafened - not severed - his connection to the force. Less than a few months after his exile, he found solitude in the Republic Army, and served as a footsoldier for a few years. This is when he met a man named Khanis Hullki, who was an expert at crafting armor. At a price, of course, Valek payed him for an armor that provided great strength, yet flexibility. He received the armor and eventually saw himself promoted to First Lieutenant a few years later. After the Third Republic was wiped out on Coruscant, he joined the others in the Galactic Resistance, and he is now forced to reawaken himself to the Force.

The funniest thing about this sentence is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.
