    Fathers. Why someone would want to be one, I sure don't know. Ties them down and keeps them from spending time with the ladies. But I know a guy who knows a guy who said they had an 'in' with the Cizerak Pride Queen Mother. That's why I'm doing this for Ko -- Cyrus Haman.

    The room was also the academic place of study for his twin daughters. Where he taught them what little he knew of the force. They displayed great aptitude for the force and to Tear's pride, or jealousy, greater finesse then he had ever achieved. Often putting what little had to teach them to shame. They seemed to retain buried knowledge of their genetic legacy with a demanding control the Inquisitor could only marvel at. Together they were powerful and free from the affliction of rage that handicapped their father. But their inheritance was not without another curse.

    Proximity was the deficiency that had fallen onto the twins. Their connection to the force and their strength in controlling it was directly proportional to their distance from each other. He had always considered it a genetic flaw caused by the process in which they were created added to his own defects but perhaps their mother was to blame for it. The Inquisitor had never considered the source of the weakness to be the result of the 'other half'. Tear eyed Hera, her smile still broad and toothy, like a Nexu toying with its food. He sensed an anger in her he had never before tasted...there could be no mistaking its source.

    That's my girl. Tear has no idea what he's in for.

    His eyes watering now, Getar watched Caran, thinking of all the situations where he'd felt vindicated for his decision and actions back then. He couldn't have had a better son.

    One of his hands reached towards Lilaena's, but he stopped it not wishing to provoke her. "I don't know what to do. The last thing I want to do is take anyone's mother away from them, let alone my own son's."

    He smiled briefly at Lilaena. "He's a strong boy though. I think you'd be proud at how strong he is."

    Jason the Elder was made of pure steel. An old man wheelchair bound and chained to a portable oxygen tank - the physical image was a complete contradiction of the iron will of the indivdual within.

    To his mind, there couldn't have been a more fortunate moment for this news to come.

    So here he was. Starin' at the grave...Kazaar closed his eyes, his left hand brushing the water offa his face. It was a futile gesture, given the drenching rain, but a gesture none the less.

    Plus, it kept the tears from stinging his eyes.

When he received the news, he became a victim of his emotions; he believes his wife is not dead, and left for Geonosis against our wishes. Yesterday, in the early morning hours, I received a transmission from him announcing his decision to leave the order completely."

    “Chaos is a friend of mine.”

    Yet there was more to think about then just himself and Aria now. Soon they would be three instead of two. This made things even more complicated, Blade couldn't be a family man and a warrior. Last time around he had abandoned his child to those that could care for her rather than taking the responsibility. He was able to be a warrior and forget about the family. Fight and only worry about numeral Uno. He then spoke to the stars.

    "Tegan if you are out there in the chaos of stars which dead end do I take?"
