As Shadow's group arrived in the hanger, he realized that they weren't being followed, and let out a sigh of relief, as did the other troops. The hanger was mostly empty because, well, who uses a hanger in hyperspace? There were a few personal, but none really.

"Alright. Since we've had our mourning run, let's head to the chow hall." Shadow said.

"Amen to that." said one of the clones. And they headed down to eat.

Cyphon emerged in the brig, hopping out of the ventilation system, he looked around the hallway filled with cyborgs, cleaning the area. He waved said hello, and left. He felt better after that little run, then he bumped into a rodian, "Hello, sorry, I'm looking for a Master Cyphon, have you seen him?" said the rodian.

"Yes, I'm master Cyphon!" he replied.

"Oh, good I have a proposition for you!" said the happy rodian.

They talked about the celebration for an hour, three hours later from there, they were setting up a stage in the hangar. And to keep it a surprise, all personel were not allowed into the hangar. Cyphon had gotten dressed, collected his sabers, got a release form from the med-bay, and headed for the mess hall, "hhmm, I missed breakfast! I'll have to fill the space in with lunch!" he said laughing to himself.


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."
"I would have killed the galaxy to preserve you...You are more precious than you know..."-now...it's verbatim!-A quote from Darth Traya (Kreia)

After eating breakfast, Shadow headed down to the Galactic map room to try and figure out where they were going. When he got there, he found that it was empty. He got the coordinates from the computer and started to look for it on the map. When he found it, he was confused.

"That's odd, I don't ever remember going to that area of the Unknown Regions." Shadow murmured to himself as he touched the point with his finger. It was was surrounded by stars, but it had been supossedly stated that the planets that orbited them were uninhabitable.

The map magnified and it showed a system with with a medium sized sun, and five systems, each one a gas giant. The one they were heading to was the smallest blue giant on the the edge of the system.

It looked familiar, but he quite couldn't place his finger on it, mentally of course. he was there for a long time looking at it and by the time he realized what time it was, it was already lunchtime.

So he decided to look at it a bit later and go get lunch.

It was lunchtime and Vader decided to go find Shadow to figure out how to locate themselves. He went to the lunchroom and spotted Shadow at a table and went up to him.

"So, figured out where we are now?" asked Vader. "You could use some of the astromech droids to calculate our coordinates, you know."

((sorry i took so long, guys))

"I don't know how far along we are yet, but I do know where we are going. It's an uninhabitable system in the Unknown Regions. We'll be coming out of hyperspace over a blue gas giant on the edge of the system. It wouldn't do much good to learn where we are anyways seeing as if we drop out, we could loose life support." Shadow said, having barely picked at his food.

Cyphon had been in the galley (cafateria) ever since Shadow came in. He walked up and heard what was said, and commented, "Blue gas giant...on the edge of a system....hhmm" Cyphon looked at the floor with a distant gaze.

"Shadow, could you do me a favor?" Cyphon asked, looking up, "and I need to talk to you Vader...if you have the time."


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."

"Excellent, I need you to scan in the deeper regions of the system, about a couple thousand lightyears out, towards the middle of the far regions! Use astromech droids like Vader said, if you have to...just transfer the file to me on what you find. I've got a pretty good idea where we are, and dont need any explanations on what the area looks like. Go to it when you have the time." Said Cyphon with a smile, while turning back towards Vader.

Shadow got up, his food untouched, got a droid from matinance, and went to the map room. People were starting to come and do their daily duties, greeting him with salutes and such. When he reached the room, the droid told him it would take about a half an hour to do the scan, and so he decided to take a nap.

Edit: ((I'll post soon but I dont have the time guys, sorry!))-This is no longer true!

Cyphon looked to Vader, "I need to tell you something..." he said, his voice trailing off.

After he had told him his dark thoughts on where they were headed, Cyphon went to the Dorms, to check on, and talk to the Diplomats. Cyphon had told Vader that where he thought they were going, should be kept a secret, until they had proof of where they were headed, exactly. He didnt want the men more nervous than they already were. And he had told Vader a few tidbits, and secrets of what the place was, or at least what he knew. He hoped Vader could help him in the deciding what they should do, when the time came, when they came out of hyperspace.

The day went by uneventful, the stage, and decorations were set up in the main hangarbay, and the men went off to sleeping. Cyphon sat talking to the rodian for hours, till finally, close to mourning he went to his room, the next day slipping in.

Shadow had long ago sent the results to Cyphon and gone to sleep.

Now he was dreaming that he was a child again, on a ship with a lot of people, all happy and smiling. Then there was an alarm and people shouting. There was the sudden shake as the ship entered hyperspace, but there were other people on the ship now. They had blasters and were shooting everyone in sight. Shadow was picked up by someone, though he couldn't get a good look at her, and taken into a hold. He remembered that hours later the door began to turn red and was blown open, the shards killing many of the people in the hold and killing the woman holding him, her corpse saving him.

They started to file in and Shadow hid in a container. The people shot anyone they found and began to looking in the containers. The ship dropped out of hyperspace just before they were about to find Shadow and they left. About an hour later, there was an explosion and some screaming. Shadow heard a screech/roar and he dared to peek outside the container to look. What he saw would give him nightmares. It was a mutilated creature, skin decaying with a yellowish color and had tentacles sprouting out of its left hand standing just outside the room in the hallway. The thing that made it worse was, even though it was mutilated and decaying, it looked like a person, with the head dangling by a piece of flesh. Unfortunately, he couldn't control his stomach and threw up. The creature noticed him. The creature leaped and Shadow got out of the container, barely avoiding getting hit by the creature who crashed into the container. Shadow scrambled out into the corridor to find the both ways of it were infested with the things. He turned around to find the one behind him closing in also. Suddenly a bunch of yellow rings formed materialized out of nowhere and when they dissipated, a lot of floating machines were in their places. And then the opened fire with their yellow lasers, followed by the gagging smell of burning flesh. He felt something hit his head hard and he passed out into darkness.


Shadow woke up breathing hard. A few clones were looking at him and one of them asked "Are you alright, Sir? You were moving a lot in your sleep and hit a few of us hard."

"I'm fine. It was just a dream. And I apologize for hitting a few of you. Now go to sleep. We're going to be halfway through our journey tomorrow." Shadow replied, not entirely sure about the fine part himself.

"Yes, Sir." the clone said and they all went to sleep.

Shadow stayed up for a moment and whispered to himself "That is over now Shadow. Forget." He then went back to sleep, peaceful, for now.

Jynn leaned back in the pilot's seat of the Ion Storm. As she watched the stars streak past her window, her thoughts drifted into the past.

In the beginning, everything had seemed so clear. It was her destiny to be trained by Kai Lin, to meet Kante Rhun, to tangle with Xendek. And the war had seemed just as clear. The Republic had been fighting the Separatists for good reasons. Even the corruption growing in the Senate was easy to see.

But something changed. The balance of power shifted. The Separatists had become stronger than anyone could have imagined. Then came the massive attack on the Jedi. Almost no one had seen it coming. Kante Rhun was dead - just like Kai Lin - just like the younglings thought to be safe in the Temple.

The things that should have lasted forever were gone.

Nothing was clear anymore.

Cyphon awoke, getting out of his bed, he headed to the galley. Men were either waking up, or eating, so he got his food. It was a special treat, a buffet of cullanary food from one of the stars, who was a famous cook. After eating he headed to his room to get dressed, but was stopped by the twi'lek from earlier.

"Hello, um, can you point me to the cafateria? I'm lost..." she asked Cyphon.

"Head down the hall, the door I came out of a ways back is the galley" he said pointing the way.

"Thank you!" she said while walking away. Cyphon stared at her as she walked away, an expression of wonder, and concentration on his face. "Ah, I see..." he mumbled to himself as he walked to his room.

Around an hour after lunch a female voice came over the comm system, "all personel, everyone, please come to the main hangar, that is all!" The voice said excitedly. Cyphon smiled to himself as soldiers, and other personel, went jogging, running, or walking to the hangar. Cyphon followed, and watched as, in surprise, the men saw, and heard the show stage. So another day went by, with the men feeling happy, and free spirited, which hadn't been for a long time. Cyphon watched, as they enjoyed the day, and watched as it continued into the night. After awhile, the show was done, and the men went to the dorms, and the final day of their journey in hyperspace, came crashing in.

((Sorry, but I'm trying to speed things up to the moment we come out of hyperspace. Dont need this thread to get boring! ))

The Force called to her again, stronger than it ever had before. Jynn shrugged her shoulders in resignation and decided to listen for once. Closing her eyes, she drifted off into meditation. A while later, she blinked, looked around, and began studying her star charts.

"Not so very far away," Jynn murmured. She punched a series of coordinates into her nav computer.

The Ion Storm leapt into hyperspace.

It was around mid-day of the third, and final day in hyperspace. Cyphon had been in his room all day, meditating, and reaching deep in to space, trying to feel the area in which they would come out. But something drew his attention away, it was a concentrated escence of the force, though faint, it was there. This made him worried, so he delved deeper, trying to draw on this small blip of the force, that was so far away. He prodded it, testing it, trying to draw it just a little closer, so he could tell what it was. Then it jumped, it leapt from his field of sense, he was surprised, he started to expand his thoughts out in all directions to find it. He felt it, but could not pinpoint it, it felt closer, and getting closer as he thought, but before he could find it, he found something else. He concentrated on the new entity, it was out there, yet it was not through the force he felt it, almost, a pure absense of the force, something he hadn't felt since the Exile, from so long ago. Then, he felt what he was looking for in the first place, the forboding thing that had so prominently plagued his thoughts.

He came out of his meditation, with a look of worry on his face, he decided not to jump to conclusions. He looked over at his message system on his datapad, there was a message, several hours old. It was the report that he asked Shadow to send to him, about the deep space scans. He looked them over, his face turning from a face of worry, to a face of anxiety, and fear. There, right where he thought it to be, was the deeper system, with it's third planet, the only inhabitable one in that sytem of nine planets. Gaia, or Terraferma, as what it's technical name was, was the last thing he wanted to see. He only hoped that they came out near the edge of the outer systems in that area, and he hoped that they didn't run into what he feared the most!

Opening his door he trudged down the hall, passing all in his path, knocking any over that got in his way. He trudged up to the head engineer, a top graduate of one of the best engineering schools in the galaxy.

"Tell me! When exactly are we coming out of hyperspace?" asked Cyphon hastily.

"Um...at around 04:00...PM time sir" said the engineer looking up, a little confused. Cyphon looked around impatiently, "oh, one more thing sir! I was able to pinpoint our exit vector to the tee!" said the engineer excitedly.

"How?" asked Cyphon. "Since we're so close to our exit, I was able to use some old techniques to find our exact exit point" said the head engineer in response.

"Go on" said Cyphon. "We'll be coming out on the far side of a gas giant, it's got a strange satellite, or moon of some sort that orbits it. My statisics could even detect other more reasonably shaped moons orbit it as well, along with, what looks to be an asteroid that orits the gas giant, right next to the strange satellite moon." Cyphon looked even more worried an anxious than before. He looked down at the engineer and said, "contact all high ranking people, and all sector heads in the area, call a meeting basically!" The head engineer got up, saluted and trotted off to do his bidding. Cyphon headed to the meeting room that Shadow had talked to the diplomats in.

Shadow now did not look like a General or Jedi, but like a Drill Sergeant. He was wearing camo cloths and a green cap, barking out orders and drilling troops hard. Some were cursing to themselves and some were just trying to finsih the impossible time limits that Shadow set for them. Shadow had woken them up at three in the morning chronometer time and was drilling them along with some other sergeants. Anyone who wasn't a drill sergeant or a general and was seen by the sergenants was being drilled, some diplomats included.

When a messenger came and told him about the meeting, he turned around and said to all of those in the hanger "Half Hour Break!" Quite a few of them sighed in relief and then Shadow left to the meeting.

When he got there he found that a few where already there, including Cyphon, and he asked "What's this meeting about? I still have two more hours to drill them."

"Drilling will have to wait, this meeting is for everyone with high enough rank or importance, once Vader gets here, along with a few others, then we'll start!" said Cyphon in response to Shadow's comment.

((One of you guys could post! I wanna get us out of hyperspace! I'm just trying to explain where we're going! Are you alive Rexraptor2000, RC_1162? Are you planning on posting again? Anyone? Dark_Lady? Hello?))

((I'm alive and here. I'm just waiting to get out of hyperspace, not much I can do until then. And I'm supposed to get out of hyperspace after you guys, right? Can't you just say that "the meeting started after Vader arrived" or something? Vader doesn't actually have to do anything right now, does he? Please let me out of hyperspace!!! Please!!!))

((Well RC-1162 is Vader, but I guess I'll have to use my TM prowess to get us out of hyperspace!))

Cyphon looked at Vader as he entered the room, Cyphon nodded at him, and he took a seat. "O.K., everyone is here, so lets get started. For one, we're coming out in an unknown system, near a gas giant, and an unknown satellite moon. I know from ages past, when I was very young, and not considered 'dead', which technically what I should be." he said laughing lightly. "That this 'moon', is not what it seems, now I'm not going to say what it is, but when we get there, we can only stop for a short time, but only to get supplies then. Does everyone understand? Good, meeting ajourned." Everyone got up and started leaving, talking to eachother as they went.

Many hours later, the ship's engines could be heard gurgling, and straining, as they finally came to rest after three days of sustained hyperspace. Then they hummed loudly to a nice halt, and were quiet, all except for the sound of steam rising as the engines cooled. Cyphon was on the bridge, which had been nicely set back up, and a small crew of people were at the various stations throughout the ship. Cyphon sighed as he looked out at the enormous gas giant, luckily the 'moon' wasn't in view. Then the sensors officer called out, "hyperspace exit detected." Cyphon said, "it must be Felix and the Matukai" said Cyphon with look of question.

"No sir, from what we can tell, they came out of hyperspace a day before we did, it's also too small to be one of ours" said the crewman in response. Cyphon stared out across the vast expanse of space, trying to see what this mystery 'ship' was.

Jynn studied the planet carefully. It was a large gas giant, obviously uninhabitable to most, if not all, life forms.

Well, she thought in exasperation, this was a huge waste of time and fuel.

She started inputting coordinates into the ship's nav computer, preparing to make another hyperspace jump, when a few sensors lit up and words began flashing on the screen.

HYPERSPACE EXIT DETECTED

Jynn canceled her current heading and checked her radar. A Trade Federation Droid Control Ship had just dropped out of hyperspace.

"Lovely," she muttered. She felt something - no, somebody, bending his attention on her, somebody who was very strong in the Force. "Oh..." she said. "It was you."

Well, she thought, if he's strong in the Force, I should be able to communicate with him. She concentrated, trying her best to send a message to him.

"And who exactly are you?"

((Actually, now it's just one Trade Federation Droid Control ship. We captured it, so, yeah.))

Cyphon felt small blips in the force hit him, he could easily tell it was coming from the ship that they had just seen off the stern of the ship.

"And who exactly are you?" came the message.

"I am Cyphon Destan, or Master Cyphon, the first grey jedi...who may you be?" he sent in reply, easily using the force to comunicate.

"Sir, we've finally activated regular engines, we're closing in on the ship. What should we do sir? We dont have many guns on this ship, they were all mostly shot off" said the low ranking officer that was controlling the menuvering and space movments console.

"Stop at around 100 ft. from the ship, that may be close, but at least if this person is an ally, enemy, or otherwise, we can use fear tactics to keep them at bay" said Cyphon in response.


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."
"I would have killed the galaxy to preserve you...You are more precious than you know..."-now...it's verbatim!-A quote from Darth Traya (Kreia)

"I am Jynn," she sent in reply, "one of the last of the Jedi Order." She watched as the Droid Control Ship approached steadily. "Incidentally," she said, "You might want to back off a little. You might have the best pilots in the world flying that thing, but a hundred feet is nothing one way or the other for a ship that size, and I would prefer to avoid a collision."

"Also," she said, with growing suspicion, "how exactly does a Jedi of any kind come to align himself with the Rebel Confederacy?"

"Pull back two hundred feet" said Cyphon to the maneuverings officers.

"One of the last of the Jedi Order? Strangely enough, that's not true. You see there are over 100 surviving jedi, though most are knights, saddly, very few masters, and padawans survived, while there ranks are bolstered even more, due to force adepts we've picked up. Vader, will be the father of the New Jedi Order, as I have ordained him" he said explaining the situation with the jedi to her through the normal force manner.

"As for us being on a Rebel Confederacy vessel, that's because we were in a battle three days ago, and we took boarding actions against this ship, and thus captured it" he said this through the comm this time to her ship, so as to make things easier on the both of them. "If you dont mind, we're going to tractor you in. It's a ways out from the known galaxy, and I doubt even you know what's in the dark vastnesses of space beyond the known galaxy" he said to her.


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."

"There are over one hundred Jedi remaining, right," Jynn responded over the comm. "Unfortunately, that's a lot less than there used to be. If we were a separate species, we would certainly be listed as highly endangered." She sighed.

"I don't mind if you tractor me in, although I usually prefer landing under my own power. And, by the way, who exactly is this 'Vader' character you mentioned?"

"Vader, is Anakin Skywalker" Cyphon said to the stranger. "If you wish to land on your own power, then fine. Just dont try any funny business, or we will be forced to ram your ship" he said to her. "Corpral, inform me if you see anything, funny outside the ship" he said to the low ranking officer standing a short distance from him.

"Yes sir, I'll do that sir" said the Corpral. (I know Corprals aren't really officers, but by George I'm making this one an officer!) Cyphon turned and walked off the bridge, and headed for the hangar bay, passing by Shadow he said, "follow me, we have visitors to welcome." Soon they arrived at their destination.

Anakin Skywalker? she thought. Interesting choice for "father" of the Jedi Order.

Jynn executed a perfect precision landing in the hangar bay, checked her lightsaber, just in case, and stepped out of the ship. Two men stood waiting.

Well, she thought, I don't sense any imminent danger from them.

"Computer, initiate lockdown procedure," she said into her com-link. The door of her ship closed behind her and locked.

"Greetings," she said to Cyphon, extending her hand.

Cyphon saw the young lady come out of the vessel, someone he really wasn't expecting to see. But showed no surprise either way.

"Greetings," she said to Cyphon, extending her hand.

He looked down on this strong but small figure of a woman, he lifted his hand, and grasped hers. He almost felt he would envelop her hand in his, he gripped firm, but kindly, and then let go. "I am Master Cyphon Destan, the first grey jedi, and this is my cohort, Master Shadow Gravemind, former jedi knight" he said introducing Shadow and himself. "Welcome aboard, we hope your allegiance is with us, and that you enjoy your stay" he said smiling. "Now tell me, what brings you to this forsaken place?" he asked her.

"You brought me here... at least, I think it was you," Jynn said. "I felt something drawing me to this place a while ago. As for my allegiance, we'll see. I don't just fly around the galaxy pledging myself to other people's causes."

She looked around the hangar for a moment. "Nice to meet you, Shadow," she said politely, then, turning back to Cyphon, "I sense a great number of Jedi. Who exactly do you have here?"

"We have about twenty-five Jedi aboard, not counting us or the force adapts Cyphon has trained." Shadow said answering her question. Shadow was a bit curious about the force drawn subject, but he didn't press it. If anything, this area of space felt devoid of the force. Shadow was a bit on edge at the feeling since they had dropped out of hyperspace. Not because of the empty feeling itself, but because it felt familiar.

"Well, that's quite a few Jedi," Jynn said. Shadow looked slightly tense, probably for the same reason she was. "Doesn't it feel a little strange around here?"

Cyphon turned to Shadow, "you feel it too, its very familiar to me as well" he said, sensing Shadows more inner workings. Cyphon turned back to Jynn, "yes, I drew you...I felt you, from a long distance away....you are strong....very strong....I wanted to see, and know who you were. So I reached out...you are like someone I know...you are like me..." he said this auspiciously. "You walk the path I once did...and still do...you are very untamed in your skills though....I know this is an on the spot question, considering I just met you. But I think it's time I took up another grey apprentice...the grey jedi order has been gone too long...would you be willing to have me train you...teach you the ways of the grey jedi?" He asked her stern faced, and serious. "You dont have to answer that now...just think on it...I would greatly appreciate it" he said smiling. "Now, come, let us show you around" he said motioning for them to get moving.

Jynn was slightly surprised by Cyphon's offer. How does he know about me? she mused. Oh well. Time enough to figure that out later.

She followed Cyphon and Shadow out of the hangar.

They went around the ship for awhile, showing her all the rooms and such, and eventually ended up on the bridge. "Well, that's the end of the tour...hope you enjoy your stay" said Cyphon smiling.

"Sir! You might want to see this!" said one of the men at their stations. Cyphon walked over to the station, his eyes widened, his pupils shrank, and his hair stood on end.

Cyphon trotted to the main viewport, "Oh...NO!" He said this, his words seeming to get caught in his throut.

(Mens chorus in the background--little humor for you Rex!) There, coming around the gas giant, was the thing Cyphon feared the most...an enormous ring-world, with a ship graveyard orbiting it, came slowly around the planet. Cyphon turned to Shadow, a look of fear, that almost seemed to be a look of pain was on his face.

"I feared this would happen..." Cyphon said, in an almost trance-like state.

((Wait a minute... is it... This should be interesting.))

"Oh... No!" Cyphon gasped. He turned slowly and looked at Shadow, a devestated look on his face. "I feared this would happen..." he said.

"You feared what would happen?" Jynn asked, cutting his thoughts off abruptly. "If you're afraid of this place, then why exactly did you come here when there are thousands of perfectly normal and safe (depending on your definition) places to travel in this galaxy alone?"

Spoiler Warning for those who have never read the books.

Shadow didn't notice Cyphon's and Jynn's comments as a wave of memories stone walled him at the site of the ring world. He remembered now- The Jedi had wiped his memory because... They were damaging his mind. The memories were to much for him mind to handle. They didn't want Shadow to get hurt, so they removed his knowledge of his past. Why though? Sure, it might've- Wait.

The memories of his last time here, as it turns out he was, began to pour through and he felt himself wrench at what he saw. The dreams he had been having he just assumed were nightmares and always told himself to forget them when they ended... they were real. These incidents seemed to be enough to damage someone's mind, but not quite enough to- Wait, what was he seeing now? The memories had ended at the end of his time here and now he was seeing things that couldn't be his own memories.

His heart felt heavy at what he saw next. He saw... children taken from their homes and made into the ultimate soldiers, an atrocity committed as he saw a defenseless planet's surface turned to glass and he knew that there were millions of people on its surface. It was the first of many. And it was at the hands of the ships that now hung dead in the massive ship graveyard in the thousands.

He saw dozens of planets suffer the same fate as their defenders could not hold against the invaders. He saw a campaign from the defenders to retake the first planet lost succeed, but they outnumbered the invader fleet three to one and they lost two thirds of their own fleet. It was a morale campaign of sorts and the losses were never disclosed.

Even the ultimate soldiers could not turn the tide of the war. They were only useful on the ground, not in space where the real fate determining battles were going on. Then he saw a battle in which they actually defended the planet, but the invaders weren't trying to take the planet. They were trying to get something off it, and they might have succeeded, depending on how you looked at it.

Then later, the biggest defender stronghold with 8 giant projectile cannons and 100 to 150 ships was attack by a fleet of invader ships with over 300 ships, with more coming. The defenders fought valiantly, and so did the ultimate soldiers on the ground, but they were ultimately wiped out, save for one ship that made a random jump to try and lead the invaders from the planet, so that another system with their homeworld nearby wouldn't be discovered. It carried the last ultimate soldier. And they came across another ringworld like the one Shadow was now staring at. Though it was a bit smaller than this one, it was about the size of Coruscant.

After being a set of objectives and missions, including being betrayed by the monitor of the ring and discovering its purpose, the ultimate soldier destroyed the ring. He returned to the homeworld and was awarded, while the invader in charge of keeping the ring safe was punished and given a chance to redeem himself.

After another turn of events, with the homeworld being invaded and an uprising within the invaders, they both ended up on the ringworld on which Shadow had been and was at again. Then he saw the death of an invader religious leader, the betrayal of the second chanced invader, the Gravemind speaking to the soldier and invader about the rings purpose, them both being sent to stop the ring from being used, and the prevention of the ring being activated by the invader along with the help of a defender.

This is why the Jedi had wiped his mind. It was too much for a child to handle, and the memories were put into his mind. He felt more, but they weren't ready to come yet. He could only say one word at the moment.

"Halo."

Jynn stood silently, looking through the viewport at the ring-planet, and waiting for Cyphon's reply. She could sense the turmoil in Shadow's mind as he stood behind her, and she wondered what could be causing him so much inner pain. Suddenly he spoke, just a single word, but a word that evidently held great meaning for him.

"Halo."

I wonder what that means, Jynn thought. She stared again through the viewport, trying to fathom the strange planet and the Jedi's even stranger reactions to it.

((Dont go rushing too far ahead of yourself Rexraptor2000, remember, this is an infinite universe, Halo's history isn't quite the same, its going to be a little...different, but only a little ))

"You feared what would happen?" Jynn asked, cutting his thoughts off abruptly. "If you're afraid of this place, then why exactly did you come here when there are thousands of perfectly normal and safe (depending on your definition) places to travel in this galaxy alone?"

"We couldn't help it! We were forced to jump, and couldn't come out for three days, our course led us here!" Said Cyphon, waving his hand toward the scene. "Do you think I wanted this? I didn't, and I never do!" Cyphon said, barely holding back his anger, which was alot considering he hadn't released his anger in a long, long time.

Cyphon calmed, he looked over at Jynn, "sorry, I haven't felt this way in a very long time" he said weakly. "I...we, fear this place because it holds secrets, dark secrets, but they are not secrets of the dark side. Oh no, this place, at least what dwells in this place, is absolutely devoid of the force, so devoid, it's almost an opposite version of the force..." Cyphon said staring into Jynn's eyes, his eyes filtering between colors.

"This place is...tainted...and should be, and should have been left to sit here...but...something tells me we were meant to come here..." Cyphon said, a look of curiosity, and concentration coming on to his face. "Yes...and I believe you are also a key to all this...I felt you for a reason...I brought you for my own curiosity...but maybe there are deeper forces behind your coming...and our coming to this place as well," said Cyphon staring hard into Jynn's face, almost seeming as if he were trying to find something in the depths of her mind, or concious being.

"Shadow, this place may be a place of horror for the both of us...but we must...explore this place, and with the help of Jynn, we can do that. Her ignorance of this place may be our salvation and redemption. It could also be a way for us to put bygones behind us...once...and for all" said Cyphon looking at Shadow. He walked up next to Shadow so only he could hear, "I feel your trouble with this place...I've felt something hidden in you for a long time...I only hope you can overcome whatever has ressurected, and help us do what we must do...I know what you're thinking, 'how does he know of my troubles with this place?' I've known something dark was hidden in your past since the moment I met you...the jedi aren't as good at hiding secrets, as they once were...I only hope your willing to face your past...for all our sakes," said Cyphon, his face emotionless.

Turning to an officer he said, "take us in orbit around the ship graveyard, we need to get a closer look at those ships before we land on the planet." "Halo...I thought I'd never have to lay eyes on such a place ever again," said Cyphon sadly as the grone of the ships engines could be heard taking them forward.


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."
"I would have killed the galaxy to preserve you...You are more precious than you know..."-now...it's verbatim!-A quote from Darth Traya (Kreia)

"If we have the time Cyphon, I would like to vist the remains of a Republic cargo ship in the graveyard and board it alone. I have something I need to see on there. It should have an emergancy transponder signal coming from it, rendering it easy to find." Shadow stated.

"No need to use the transponder" said Cyphon craning his neck and looking downward out of the viewport. "It's right there," pointed Cyphon at the Republic Cargo Ship floating at the edge of the Graveyard. The ship they were on coming to a halt at the edge of the Graveyard, the vastness was more fathomable, and all anyone could say was, it was huge! Thousands of ships lay in orbit around the giant ring.

"Do what you must Shadow, for now I will take some troops, and explore one of those ships," said Cyphon to Shadow. Turning to Jynn he asked, "would you like to come with me, as I said we need you for this, it would also keep you from boredom, please, aid us in this endevore."


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
