Characters

Jedi Sects

Riado School

Though seldom seen the 2000 year old founder Master Riado is still alive and supposed met Luke shortly after the destruction of the 2nd Death Star.
Base of operation: The Monastery on the isolate outer rim Planet Riado
Order of the Dragon
A group of Force wielding warriors focus on connection to the force in all life around them and the direct elimination of dark-side influence
Founded by a pair of force sensitive refugees from Alderaan looking to help restore the Sith polluted planet that would come to be known as new Alderaan
Base of Operation: The Garrison on New Alderaan
New Republic Guard
The NRG are tightly tied to the bicameral senate of the New Republic
The NRG believes it was the arrogance and separation of the Jedi that led to the fall of the Old Republic.
The NRG act under senate approval, and advise the senate in all matters Force related
The NRG also allows non-force sensitives to join their ranks in service to the New Republic. These members are expected to fully participate in all Jedi mental and spiritual rituals and will usually have an at least ceremonial light saber.
Base of Operation: Coruscant
Hand of Peace
The most enigmatic sect of Jedi. Hand of Peace Jedi are powerful, yet seldom seen. The lone oldest member of their order is the only one who attends grand counsel meetings. He always says nothing there only listening
No other Hand of peace is known. It is said that the others hide among the people of the galaxy or even other Jedi Sects, often posing as wandering Jedi. However the worst of the citizens of the galaxy fear drawing the attention of the Hands. As it is said they will eliminate them atom by atom until the last. When you see the symbol of the hand you know your time is short.
Base of Operation: Unknown
Wandering Jedi
A diverse group of Jedi who largely pass their training on Master to Padawan one on one.
Most believe the failings of the Old Republic Jedi came from their reliance on Mass indoctrination and isolation from the common people of the galaxy.
They believe that Jedi training should be a personal affair between the Master and Padawan. The Master always mindful of the humanity of the padawan. The padawan always mindful of the experience of the Master. Each responsible for the safety Physical and Spiritual of the other. If a Wadering Jedi does fall to the Dark side, their Master or most senior Padawan will usually take it as their duty to bring them back to the light or eliminate them.
Base of Operation: None, though many would cite the new Jedi temple on Coruscant

When they get there they find in is a collection of relics from Exagol. The Force sensitives sense a dark presence in the exhibit.

Master Satechi, perhaps over zealously, grabs the focus of the breaking and their investigation an amulet. On picking it up the amulet spews forth a giant dark side lightning elemental that immediately incinerates Satechi.

As we're leaving the docks, a shadowy figure approaches us. He grabs Torei and pulls a knife. "You'd be wise to forget anything you saw in that dock. This is a friendly warning." Torei bluffs and says "We didn't find anything." Rowan holds up the flip flop and says "I've found your secrets!" in such an intimidating manner that the guy withdraws.

Attacked by four of his friends. Take down three, intimidate the last to surrender. He says "Your deaths are inevitable, you will not stop the rise." Then bites down on a drug tooth and dies. Hess tries to track down the initial guy. Can't find a trail.

Kit hacks a computer terminal and searches the cameras. Finds info that he was at a nearby pizza place. Hess tracks him down and we start following him. He left a bloody hand print on the door to an auditorium where there's a presentation on The Negative Effects of VibroBlades in Our Society.

We enter. Kit climbs up to the rafters and dims the lights. Hess searches and finds the guy. Torei sneaks up, puts a gun in his back and gets him to surrender. He says "I'll tell you everything, just promise not to kill me."

Who do you work for? I was hired by a human male and zabrak female to keep an eye on that spaceport and scare off anyone who came poking around.

What else can you tell us about them? They gave me a comm code to tell them if anyone came poking around.

We tell him to give us the code. Planet code was issued on Scipio.

Get the code.
