Fate of the Fallen

Star Wars
- A Force & Destiny Adventure -

Fate of the FallenBBY 19 - Toward the end of the Clone War

The Jedi Council has learned that Darth Sidious plans on abducting several young force sensitives for reasons that are as of yet unknown.

With nearly all of the Jedi making a final push against Separatist forces on Geonosis and across the galaxy, the Jedi Council dispatched a team of four clones in a GX1 Short Hauler to secure and return them safely to Coruscant, in an effort to save the younglings from their dark fate.

Little did they know that a Sith agent had already been dispatched to seize the children as well. Although he was unable to reach them first, the agent did manage to catch them as they were preparing to jump to hyperspace. The two ships battled and ultimately both were damage sufficiently that they crashed back onto the planet Eriadu, at the center of the Seswenna sector in the Outer Rim.


The GameThis is a Star Wars RPG following the Fantasy Flight Games ruleset found in Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, and Force & Destiny. Although our campaign begins using a Force & Destiny module (A slightly modified Lessons from the Past), my plan is for it to settle into an Age of Rebellion campaign.

Although we are starting with a Force & Destiny module, I will only be selecting 2-3 characters with a F&D career. The remainder will be chosen from Age of Rebellion or Edge of the Empire Careers.

Any official material published by FFG can be used during character creation.

      • You may select Clone as your species. For our purposes here, they will be the same as standard humans, save your singular focus and motivation: to serve and protect the Republic, and the changes found
        • Wound Threshold: LI + Brawn
        • Strain Threshold: 11 + Willpower
        • Starting Experience: I00 XP

        here

AZCH-777: "Azure Chrysalis" Application
right-aligned image
Name: AZCH-777: Azure "Zee" Chrysalis

Description: A Flat Amethyst-colored protocol droid that has seen better days. His colors have faded, with bare metal and discolored replacement parts showing in many places.

Background: AZCH-777 was bought by the Hutts on Tatooine directly from Industrial Automaton as a protocol droid for one of the bosses.

Obligation: Dutybound

Species: LOM Protocol Droid

Career &Specialization: Smuggler/Scoundrel

History: The head of one of the crime syndicates in Anchorhead was a Twilek named 'Princess'. "Zee" was ordered by and spec'ed out by her, all the way down to his odd coloring. AZCH-77 was with her as assistant, sometime bodyguard, and data bank. Few knew that Princess had a son whom she named K'rasu and was known to be Force Sensitive. One of Zee's last jobs for her was to secretly get the boy to the Jedi serving the Republic. However, the Hutts didn't take kindly to that kind of subterfuge and Princess was 'demoted' within the organization.

The droid insured that the child was picked up by the clones as they traveled from one system to another. Being the paranoid type, Zee secretly followed the group in his ship as they traveled. As they were approaching Eriadu, he saw the crash on his monitor and went down to the planet to investigate. He searched the crash site for clues as nothing from orbit told him what could have caused the disaster. After finding that the boy had been killed, Zee took care of K'rasu's body and some of the other young ones. After hearing their stories, he decided to stay with the group to both protect and to find those responsible. Zee didn't want to return to Tatooine empty handed so, to honor his commitment to the boy's mother, the Droid starting looking for allies.

Zee's programming and AI were now dedicated to finding those responsibility and delivering 'Hutt justice'. The Jedi and the Republic's laws be damned, people were going to die for this.

Roleplay Sample: The dump of a Cantina in the slums of Anchorhead was dark and seemingly empty. The proprietor was a foolish balding human with an excessive paunch who thought he could hide his little operation from the Hutts. Not the first and certainly won't be the last. Nevertheless, Zee entered the place looking for clues as to where the dead man was hiding his stash. He would be dead, as soon as the money was paid and then the Cantina would go to some 'more loyal' servant of the crime lords. Zee didn't like it. It was too quiet for a place called the 'Wild Life'. If Zee had human emotions, he may have chuckled at the lewd animal posters or the even more lewd names of drinks.

"Zee" heard a noise off to his left, then dodged the expedient missile (empty bottle) which shattered against the wall behind him. He had his blaster out and had ducked behind the bar before the second assailant reached him. He left the second assailant with a burning hole in his forehead as he went in search of the one that had tried to distract him the bottle. The Droid let that one live long enough to let everyone know you don't cross the Hutts and to rat out his boss, who apparently spent the rest of his miserable life feeding the Sarlacc.

Chaki Setto
right-aligned image
Name: Chaki Setto

Description: A skinny strip of a girl, Chaki looks every bit the scared street-child, with smudges on the pale skin of her face and tangles in her long black hair completing the effect. From a distance, therefore, most people would dismiss Chaki as a nobody, it is only when seeing the unwavering purpose in her emerald eyes that an observer may consider that there is a little more to her than meets the eye.

She has no real friends outside of their little group of refugees, a fact that she resents deeply. She watches normal kids laughing and flirting with a kind of jealous superiority, telling herself that they’re vapid, naïve, that they have no clue about how the world really works. But she keeps watching them from the shadows, hooking on to one or two when she arrives in a new place and living vicariously through their tribulations. There’s always drama, and it’s better than any holo because it’s real, and watching it doesn’t help to fill the credsticks of big-shot studio executives somewhere.

Background: Laborer - Chaki is still young and has only just started to get a real idea of how the galaxy works, but she has already started to think about ways to improve the lives of her fellow laborers; with new techniques to prevent accidents, or designs for new labor-saving devices spinning around in her head.

The Force: Pragmatic Power - Chaki practices her Force techniques diligently because they’re her most effective method for achieving her goals. She only pays lip-service to the spiritual aspects of the Force, which makes it somewhat more challenging to learn the deeper techniques.

Morality:
WonderAlienation
In a city, every day provides a new adventure. This keeps the character connected, always learning, and alive. The city teaches the character to remain open to new experiences as it surprises daily.With too many people and too many problems, the character gets overwhelmed and withdraws. The city continues on, ignoring any one person. Why not let time take care of the problem?
Wonder/Alienation

Motivation: Ambition; Discovery - Chaki is always on the lookout for the new. Whether it's new places, experiences, technology, friends, or even something as simple as food she hasn't tried before, she feels drawn to the novel.

Species: Human

Career & Specialization: Sentinel (Artisan)

History: Born to a starship designer and a repulsor engineer on Kuat. Considering her family connections and her own prodigious talent, Chaki’s future should have been secure, but when both of her parents died in an industrial accident when she was ten, Chaki was taken to Balmorra under the care of her Aunt. Gya, who had borne a bitter rivalry with her sister for many years, was initially delighted to get the chance to shape Ferra’s daughter in her own image, but when it turned out that Chaki had her own ideas about that, things turned sour.

For her part, Chaki hated Balmorra from the start and constantly dreamed about returning to the relatively unspoiled Kuat one day, and getting work in the shipyards, perhaps even following in her father’s footsteps and designing starships. Unfortunately Gya’s resentment turned to cruelty and Chaki found herself the target of increasing abuse.

Even as a child Chaki had been ever on the lookout for solutions to problems, but the solution to living peacefully with her aunt eluded her, so she left and smuggled herself onto a freighter heading off-world. Chaki was more fortunate than most kids who end up alone on the hyperlanes; she had a natural affinity with technology and so was able to convince disgruntled captains not to throw her out of the airlock by helping them with the sort of annoying maintenance tasks which tend to get left to last.

She moved from system to system, rarely seeing anything of a planet beyond its spaceport. Gradually she built up a reputation and managed to get paying gigs rather than just room and board. Things looked bright, until the day that an engineer, a Duros by the name of Jerrum Skalwar, saw her drop her hydrospanner, shrug, and just get on with the work by reaching into the coolant system and tweaking it directly. Apparently he told his boss about it, who reported it to spaceport security, who passed it onto the local law enforcement, and before she knew what was happening everybody was coming to take a look.

Jerrum, the engineer whose gossiping had got her into this mess, heard how far things had gone and tipped Chaki off just in time, and she sneaked onto the next ship heading anywhere. As it turned out, it was heading to Sullust, and Chaki would find that people were waiting for her there; clones.

Roleplay SampleThe engines hummed, with an irregular ripple running through them which was driving Chaki mad. The ship had now been in hyperspace for three days and the little parcel of food that she had grabbed when she smuggled herslef on board was long-since finished. The cargo hold smelled of whatever oxidiser they had used to degrease the cargo dolly and it was giving her a headache. But worst of all, she had nothing to do. She had assumed that there would be bits and pieces lying around that she could tinker with, but the captain of this tub ran a very tight ship and nothing was out of place. She had to entertain herself by making up little rhymes about the components in various devices, a pastime she was indulging in when the internal bulkhead door suddenly swished open!

Chaki stopped talking immediately and held her breath. She could hear somebody coming in. Had they heard her? They were certainly moving in her direction, towards the stack of crates which she had set up a little bed between. Her mouth went dry and she very deliberately kept her hand away from the little blaster she carried for her own protection.

The seconds ticked by but to Chaki it seemed like an eternity. Surely if they had heard her they would have said something by now? She suddenly realised that she was still holding her breath and let it out as slowly and gently as she could.

"Are you comin' out or are ya gonna make me come in?"

The voice was deep and gritty, with a strange mixture of boredom and amusement. Chaki imagined it belonged to an old, jaded togruta.

She took a deep breath and started to edge her way out of her hiding place. She was not stranger to this kind of situation, of course, she had stowed away on dozens of ships and sooner or later they tended to catch on. The secret to success was to be polite, friendly and, above all, useful.

She clambered out into the cargo bay proper and wasn't surprised when the stranger did indeed turn out to be a togruta. She was good at that kind of thing.

"Um, hi," she said, keeping her head down and avoiding too much eye contact, "your 'drive coils need recalibrated, yer getting' a nasty resonance."

She paused to see if he was aware of it already. He just looked at her.

"Um, I could do it for ya, when we drop back to realspace. It'd save you payin' for it at the spaceport."

This looks great! I'll have to work up a concept.

She's going to be an Age of Rebellion character. So, If I understand this right, then she should be a clone.

My Application

Name: Agmena Baj (XA-461)

Description: The man responsible for the construction of Agmena Baj and her sisters developed them with their beauty foremost in his mind, so she was bred as much for looks as for her other abilities. Agmena (or Mena) is tall, well-built, and pretty. Personally, she prides herself on her luxurious hair, as that's the only thing about her that's truly her own choice (and not strictly regulation). It's a bit of individuality in an otherwise cookie-cutter existence. Her clothing, gear, and appearance are otherwise exactly what the regulations state that they should be - in line with military standards.

Background: True-believer. Part of her training as a clone soldier was imbuing her with an innate belief that the Republic is good and right - the light holding back the darkness. Until she sees otherwise, this is what she believes and what guides her actions.

Motivation: to serve and protect the Republic

Duty: Support. As a leader, Agmena wants to see the team succeed and the mission accomplished. That means that each team member needs to be able to function at their best and receive whatever support that she can provide them. This often requires flexibility and a willingness to listen and learn. She knows that she doesn't know everything; that's why she's teamed up with specialists who have abilities and training that she doesn't.

Species: Clone (Human)
Career & Specialization: Commander (Tactician)

History - The Nightingale Project: While the cloners on Kamino were developing the main body of the Republic army, a secondary project was started under the direction of a man named Fraeten Maric. The concept behind the project was to develop troopers designed for spying and infiltration instead of being shock troopers bred for combat. Early in the process, Fraeten began to propose new ideas for how his troops could be utilized - as a medical corps, secret police, and more. He finally decided that they could do all of these things and redesignated the clones for multi-purpose operations. To accommodate these new specifications, the cloners knew that they had to allow for more variation in the finished product. They warned Fraeten that this could reduce the viability of the clones but he ignored their reports. To make matters worse, he changed the donor specimen to a female at the last minute. This donor source was subjected to a much less rigorous screening process, as funding and time ran low. The official reasoning for changing the clones to women was to make them obviously distinct from the main army troopers. In truth the real reason was much more personal reasons.

The first wave of Nightingale clones produced by the Nightingale Project turned out to have a high rate of irregularities. Many didn't survive. Many others started to develop cognitive or issues with mental stability. Seizures and strokes were common, and in the end nearly 70% of the clones had to be discarded. The second wave was abandoned altogether and further attempts were canceled. Fraeten considered the result a resounding success when he saw his army of nearly 2,000 beautiful women. A month later, when the news of the utter disaster the project turned out to be reached the ears of his superiors, Fraeten was removed from the project for gross incompetence in managing it. The clones that survived continued to be raised and trained, and eventually put to service in whatever role they were best suited for.

For her part, Agmena continued her duties to the Republic as a low-ranking officer in a special forces on Eriadu.

Hey girlplay. Love the idea of you going with a clone. Picking a female clone is interesting, but it also means that you will need to explain why you exist. An experiment by the kaminoans, an expensive request from a senator, etc.

Silent Rain I can see we have similar tastes! I think I’ll have to dust off my FFG books and give this a go.

Sure, I have an idea in mind that I'll write up and run past you. For now, I'll call it The Nightingale Project but it really deserves a better, more original name.

Name: Poz Nasan
Description: A tall young boy with Mirialan tattoos on his face and short dark hair. He is rather muscular but still growing into his body as he is just beginning to reach adulthood. He has a shy demeanor about him and is kind to those he meets.
Motivation: Faith: Goodness in People: Poz believes in the inherent goodness in people. He believes that together , the majority of different beings in the galaxy can interact to create an all encompassing civilization that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Morality: (start at 71) Compassion/Hatred & Pride/Arrogance
Species: Mirialan
Career & Specialization: Warrior Star Pilot Ace
History::
There isn’t much Poz can remember about his parents. He was just a boy when they took him, but the memories he had with them were pleasant ones and never seemed to mesh well with everything since then. Poz new his home planet was Mirialan and that it wasn’t very hospitable, they were hungry a lot and depended on the Trade Federation to sell them supplies. Some point before his fifth birthday the Trade Federation realized that they had the Mirialan’s by the tail and started gauging them. The only option that his people had was to either pay the prices the Trade Federation asked or to go to smugglers. His people had chosen the latter. At first it seemed to be working, food and supplies were coming in and he remembered his family being happy, but then one bad year left them short on credits and when the smugglers came to collect they were unable to pay.

Regretfully these smugglers worked for the Black Sun and soon a group of mercenaries were at their doorstep. The memories are still foggy for Poz but he new they had grabbed a bunch of women and children asking for whatever payment they had before they started killing innocents. Of course his people had nothing and when the town elder tried to explain that to the mercenaries he was quickly shot on the spot.

Eventually a strange looking man in black robes showed up and looked over the children. Taking interest in a few of them he collected them into the ship and told the town their debt was forgiven. Poz was one of the children taken. His parents gave him a hug and sent him on his way wishing him a good fate. That was something he remembered most about his brief childhood, Fate. His people felt a strong connection to it and insisted it would lead them in times of trouble, just like when he was trapped on the Black Sun ship. So when the opportunity presented itself Poz slipped into an escape pod and hit the eject button, right before the ship made a hyperspace jump. By the time they realized he was gone he had already drifted to the planet below.

Life after that wasn’t easy, the planet he had landed on was Eriadu, and it was anything but friendly. Most of the people there didn’t even believe in fate. He had to find a way to get buy and he quickly found an affinity to pod racing. He managed to somehow scavenge enough parts to build himself an acceptable pod and after being sponsored by a local parts dealer he managed to win himself a few races after only nearly dying a couple of times. Regretfully it couldn’t last forever and he eventually grew to big to race the pods. The sponsor had taken most of his money but he had managed to put enough away to get a speeder. No one suspected the old pod racer was one of the runners in the under city, but it was a job and it got him food. Poz constantly lived in fear that one day the man in the black robes would come back for him, but he trusted in Fate and waited for what was next.

Name: RC-3482, “Deuce”
Species: Clone
Career: Soldier
Specialization: Commando
Motivation: Survive the Clone Wars, desert and retreat with Rav Bralor and Kal Skirata before things go south, serve the Republic.
Duty: Combat Victory

History: RC-3482 was part of the first generation of clone commandos, bred and grown in vats on Kamino and trained by the Cuy’val Dar. While many of the Cuy’val Dar participated in his training, as each had their own specializations, Deuce was primarily trained by Rav Bralor, a hard woman who nevertheless had a special fondness for the men of her squads. While some of the Mando trainers, such as Walon Vau, brutalized their squads to make them tough, others, like Bralor and Kal Skirata, treated their squads like their own children – Mando children, true, but children nonetheless. From the time he began training, Deuce’s greatest pleasure was Bralor’s smile at a job well done.

His training was not easy; no clone commando’s training was. It is never easy to turn five-year-old boys into soldiers. But of all the beings in the galaxy, Mandalorians were best suited for that task, and they excelled at it. By the time he was six (biologically twelve), Deuce was on par with most organized militaries in the galaxy. By the time he was ten (biologically twenty), he excelled. But it was not without tragedy.

They began live-fire exercises at seven. Fully encased in the armor that would become his life over the next few years, he watched through his HUD as Skirata gunned down one of his brothers. It had been an accident; Skirata had been firing wide, and Toes had panicked, dodging right into the line of fire. But it hurt nonetheless. That night, for the first time in years, Deuce had wept. Bralor had held him and his squad members that night, and he loved her for it.

Life and training continued, though, and by the time they were ready for combat, Toes had been replaced. And then came Geonosis.

It was a bloodbath for the commandos. His squad lost half their members as Jedi who had been ill-prepared for command sent them forward with the rest of the infantry. Other squads fared worse, but watching Rock and Six die like that due to Jedi incompetence colored his view from then forward. He loved the Republic, and he would die for it, but he had no love for the Jedi.

Oh, they tried. They learned. But none of them were his brothers.

There were a few exceptions. Etain Tur-Mukan. Bardan Jusik. Anakin Skywalker. They weren’t above their troops, not mightier-than-you types. Some others weren’t completely irredeemable – Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, a few others. But others saw clones as no more than droids, to be used up and discarded. It was these that drove Deuce to begin questioning the Jedi leadership in earnest.

That questioning led him back to Rav Bralor and Kal Skirata. Two years into the war, he ran into Bralor on Coruscant, and he asked her about the Jedi leadership. She referred him to one of Skirata’s boys, as he called them, a clone called Mereel, one of the Null ARCs, who listened carefully and then told him not to worry about it. If something needed to be done, they’d contact him.

With that answer, Deuce returned to his unit and continued the fight. Then, on a mission on Gaftikur, the rest of his squad was wiped out. He along survived, completing his brothers’ mission just before extraction. Recalled to Coruscant, he met with Mereel, who told him the time to run was close. Nevertheless, he was assigned one more mission by General Arligan Zey. Assigned to a new squad, he was to track down and rescue some young Force-sensitives. Loyal as always, Deuce suited up. The mission was a partial success. After locating the Jedi, their ship was ambushed by a Sith agent, and they crash-landed on Eriadu in the Seswana sector.

Description: RC-3482 is a clone. As such, he is defined less by his features, which look the same as all 1.2 million of his brothers – dark hair cropped short, hard features, and the swarthy complexion of Jango Fett – as by his personality. He presents a hard exterior and a callousness towards death that would surprise most civilians, but underneath the hard shell exists a softness that is difficult to reconcile with his profession. He attributes the softness to Bralor’s training; while the Kaminoans and most of the Cuy’val Dar trained him to be a soldier, she trained him to be human.

He considers himself Mando’ade, of the Bralor clan, and his first loyalty is to his brothers. He has adopted much of the Mandalorian culture and is disappointed when another clone, particularly a commando, does not share his knowledge or love, for if they are not Mando’ade, then what are they?

Beyond that, he has little use for Jedi unless they too embrace Mandalorian values. He values their combat use, but he has little patience for their moralizing or their incompetence. In truth, he cares for little outside his brothers, his clan, and the Republic as an institution.

Roleplay Sample: Deuce found himself flipping through the air, the sound of the explosion ringing in his ears even over the sound-dampening features of his buy’ce. He landed hard, tumbling a few times, only the solid nature of his Katarn armor preventing broken bones. Growling, he scrambled to his feet and brought up his Deecee as he ran for cover. Dropping behind a small pile of rocks, he caught his breath, then scanned the nearby area.

“Deuce?” came a voice over his helmet comm. “Ner vod? You OK?”

“Yeah,” he replied, still a bit out of breath. “Tahla'ada tracyaat just about flattened me, but I’m good. Just glad they aren’t using EMPs.”

“Pricks is pinned down just north of you,” came the response. “Comms out, but he seems to be moving. About forty meters or so.”

“Understood,” Deuce replied. He took a deep breath, then popped up, fired a few times, and took off in a zig-zag dash towards Pricks’ position.

The Seppies weren’t particularly interested in giving up their prize, though. Droids, supported by two spider droids, opened fire as he moved, and he returned it best he could, but his primary objective was to reunite with Pricks. RC-1131, the official designation read, but Pricks to his brothers – he had a way of constantly sticking himself with his own knife. Deuce slid in behind Pricks’ cover. The commando lifted a thumb, indicating he was OK, and Deuce began firing rapidly at the approaching enemy. Droid after droid dropped.

After a few moments, Deuce dropped back behind cover. “Got to get you out of here,” he said to Pricks. “Can you run?”

At then answering nod, Deuce nodded. As Pricks scrambled to a crouch, Deuce fired a few more rounds. “On me, then,” he said, and started counting down. When he reached one, he popped up and laid down covering fire while Pricks took off. Deuce followed after a few seconds, firing blindly as he ran. Niner and Twix began firing from their position as well, giving them enough of a gap to dart through.

Then, just before they reached shelter, Pricks dropped. Deuce saw the bolt that did it; a well-aimed, high powered laser rifle caught the commando in a small gap in his armor, just under the helmet. Deuce screamed, but the scream was lost in the explosion that took out Niner and Twix’s position. Diving low, Deuce crawled into another pile of rocks, getting out of sight just as another blast from the laser rifle scored the ground where he’d stood.

Pricks gone. Niner and Twix, gone. All in a matter of seconds. It was almost overwhelming. But they had a mission. Deuce took a deep breath, committing their souls to the Manda and their names to memory. He’d collect their armor tallies later. Now, he had a job to do.

Name: Inaya Shadal

Description: Inaya is a young woman but many who first see her assume she is much older due to her stark white hair which she has had since birth. She has a lithe build covered by the robes she typically can be found wearing. Her hair is long and flowing, sometimes op in a single pony tail to keep it from her face. Her eyes are a deep ice blue in color that seem to lure the beholder in.

Background: Inaya was born to a simple woman, who worked as a server in the local cantina. She never knew her father, a man who had passed through and stayed a short while with her mother before moving on. Her mother never spoke of her father, but had her own assumptions. Ever since she was small Inaya had a strong connection to the force. Growing up Inaya learned to cultivate her connection understanding it and working to improve her connection.

When she was only 7 years old she felt a pull to a dark area of the forest on her homeworld, moving inside she followed the lure and came upon an entrance in the ground leading into a carved tunnel following it she found a small home of sorts. Inside she found a small table chair and makeshift bed. Upon the table was a red pyramid of sorts. She felt the lure coming from the device and moving forward lifted it into her hands. The device as it turned out was a holocron, imparting her with information from the man who had once owned it. She did not know at the time that the man in question was actually her father. Amongst the belongings in the small cavern she also found a lightsaber the weapon of the Jedi.

Knowing her mother would not approve she kept the holocron and lightsaber in the cavern and over the next seven years she trained and developed her skill in manipulating the force as well as using the lightsaber. Shortly after turning 15 Inaya was forced to use her connection to the force and her personal training with her fathers lightsbaer to protect her mother. A group of scum who had come into the cantina looking for trouble grabbing her mother and assaulting her. Her mother begged them to leave her be, but the men refused when Inaya heard the scuffle she made her way into the cantina.

The men seeing her began to laugh, seeing the small young girl in her white and silver robes approaching. One of the men stood and went to grab Inaya when he did she made a swift motion sending the man flying into the wall. Seeing the girl as a threat suddenly the other two men drew their blasters, her mother desperate to protect her daughter stepped in front on Inaya taking the blast from the mans blaster. Inaya seeing what had happened drew her ligthsaber and deftly cut the mans hand from his wrist with a quick motion of her wrist. The other rose his weapon to attack only to find the end of the blue silver lightsaber stop just below his chin.

Several men grabbed the remaining man and dragging him off. Inaya rushed to her mother's side only to find her dying on the floor of the cantina. Her mother died there in Inaya's arms leaving Inaya alone. Knowing that she had revealed herself she fled the cantina and made her way to the cavern she had come to call her own. Inaya began to live and spend all of her time to train using the holocron her father had left behind along with the lightsaber. Just before the arrival of the clones she had been training when a man came out of nowhere, she had felt something but it was weak. The agent having been better trained having masked his presence. When she did see the man she could feel the darkness radiating off of him in waves of force energy. The man told her that he was sent to retrieve her and bring her to his master. Inaya knew there was a difference in the light and dark sides of the force, and refused when she did the man leaped to attack.

HE was better trained in lightsaber combat then she was having an training partners Inaya did her best but in the end he severed her lightsaber in half, and reaching out with the force had pulled the holocron from her robes without her even knowing. That was when the clones arrived firing at the man, knowing he was outnumbered he fled. The trooper explained that they were sent to bring her to Coruscant to complete her Jedi training. She knew of Coruscant and the Jedi from the holocron and readily agreed moving to grab her meager belongings. It was not until they were back on the ship she realized the holocron was gone having been taken by the man. It was her only link to her father other than the lightsaber that was now in two pieces. She knew one day she woudl find the man and retrieve what was hers, for now though she needed to be trained so she could face him.

It was only when the Clones found her on Arbiflux that she left her home world setting out on her own for the first time.

@Cendar Welcome! Another clone (who doesn't have a soft spot for them).

The clones that were sent to retrieve the force sensitives was a squad of four commandos. As such, I would be fine with a player taking one of those spots as a rookie clone commando. There is also a clone base in Phelar (the city where you will start) that your character could have been stationed at. Just some ideas, nothing that anyone has to jump on.

Oh, and for anyone picking a clone, it might be a good idea to think about what your character is going to do about their inhibitor chip. Just a suggestion...
