The Truth Unmasked Part 1
A pair of liquid silver eyes blinked slowly, taking in the scene before them with interest and otherworldly detachment.
The voice was soft, as it always was, despite the gruff sound it had. She felt her heart beat faster, her eyes unable to focus on a single thing, everything was moving so fast. There were so many lives counting on her, so many people who looked to her for guidance, and once more, she took the place as leader on the field of battle. She looked around at the faces looking up at her, Carth Onasi, Bastila Shan, Canderous Ordo, Mission Vao, Zaalbar, Juhani, Jolee Bindo, the faithful droids HK-47 and T3-M4.
And now, two new faces joined their circle. One belonging to a woman she had never expected to see again in her entire life. It was Breena, standing there, in the flesh, those silvery blue eyes gazing up at her with same loyalty they had held when she had decided to march them off to war. They were both different people entirely now, but she suspected Breena's

Korriban: ancient homeworld of the Sith, now their training ground. Many citizens of the Empire have come through this planet on their way to becoming ranking Lords of the SIth or simply ending up as food for the various animals that infest Korriban's surface. It's a planet of darkness, it's a planet of shadows, and it's a planet that Darth Revan, now Serea Apostolia, has visited many times in the past. The first time was during the Mandalorian Wars and was part of what started her journey towards falling to the dark side again. Now, she is here as a Sith but not as a darkside user. Instead she is one of the many loyal Sith of the Empire who use the lightside to push the Empire towards a greater good.
Part of this greater good involves why she's here. By command of the E

And he felt like he would explode.
At the moment of revelation, he had barely withheld a brutal punch to the smooth skin of her face as everything came flooding back, all the death, destruction, the stinging odor of burning buildings and the putrid stench of scorched flesh and blood. Looking at her and seeing someone else brought back the horrid, long-despised memories of the way the colony looked when he had arrived, the way his breath had whooshed from his lungs when he had seen his house, pummeled and reduced to little more than a heap of rubble. It brought back the bitterly sore woun

"Sir, one of our teams brought back a droid."
The young soldier hesitated and that caught Carth Onasi's attention. He was well liked by his men and preferred to think he was easily approachable, which he was. So it was that Admiral Onasi had learned to be alert when a soldier appeared nervous whilst bringing him news. Carth, hands clasped loosely behind, turned and regarded the youth.
The soldier realized his commanding was waiting for him to continue and he made a nervous squeak drawing in a breath. "Uh, excuse me, uh sir. The droid is asking for you Admiral. It says -"
"Where is it?" Carth asked with such sudden intensity the young man nearly leapt out of his own skin. With a great deal of restraint Carth kept from grabbing the soldier and shaking the information out of him. Something deep within Carth Onasi had stirred. His thoughts whispered a name and with that hope burned in his heart.
The soldier pointed a shaking finger in a vague direction towards the aft of the ve
Revan's Return 1 "Five years, Jolee. I can't believe it's been five years. Feels more like a thousand." Carth's voice was thick, weighted. He ran his thumb along the rim of his glass, popped it in, then tasted it. It didn't taste like rum; rather, it tasted of flesh and a small wound on his thumb from scratching it with the nail of his index finger. Old habits never fade. Such as his tendency to tilt his head when talking to an attractive woman.Revan's Return 14 years ago in Settings More Like This
Jolee sighed, and leaned back in his seat. "Are we back to that now?" When there was no response, he continued. "I know how you feel, Carth, really I do, and it's okay to hurt. But you can't be moping about it all the time." Carth's large, brown eyes met the old man's but he did not speak. "See, that's your trouble," Jolee reflected. "You tend to dwell on things, and it takes a huge miracle--say, an amnesiac Sith Lord's love--to help you get over it." He chuckled at his own joke, trying to

It was difficult to control his impatience. Carth focused on landing the Raptor in the Gargon port. The vessel slipped into her dock, touching down softly, and settling lightly on her landing pads. He punched a few buttons and the Raptor's engines went quiet. The sudden silence felt a stark contrast to what he was experiencing on the inside. For a moment the pilot sat and considered the situation.
Somewhere on the planet Revan and Dustil waited for him. But they could be anywhere in the bustling district with its forest of towering high rises and the thousands of people crowded into them. Carth hadn't been this close to his loved ones in years, yet without knowing where they were, he may well have still been in the Inner Core.
In the Raptor's common area his friends were waiting. Bastilla and Jolee were talking softly in a far corner. Canderous, armed to the teeth with a heavy repeating blaster at each hip, was propped aga

" I'm now a free man! Another round on me," Shouted Arrunet.
The cantina roared with cheers and laughter. I finally got the old man out of my hair, He thought as he smirked and looked over at his brother and sister across the table. "What's with you guys? We don't have a Darth hunting us down anymore. He was never really our father; I mean he was our biological, but he never loved us nor cared for us," he said as he finished his sixth shot of Corellian whiskey.
"I know why you are happy Arrunet," Surn paused and sipped on his gorksin ale,"but I don't think we should celebrate his death."
Alfirin brooded over her Ale, keeping a watchful eye over the rowdy cantina. "I'd like to celebrate with you, but I can't shake the feeling that something isn't right," she added, "Besides, even if he was a terrible person, he's still our father. Celebrating his death just doesn't sit well with me."
"You guys are no fun, I don't know why I bring you al

There was an elation growing within him he hadn't felt in years. Not since Revan had agreed to let him give her a future had there been this energy fueling him onward. In his mind Carth was already planning for what would come next. He had a fair number of questions to ask of both Dustil and Revan. Though the important thing was to get Revan to safety aboard the Raptor. After there would be all the time in the world for questions.
Dustil led the way with confidence through the streets and the others followed. Even at the late hour a fair number of citizens still were strolling about. The groups urgent pace attracted a number of stares from people. On more than one occasion someone would point at Dustil excitedly then wave or call to him. If this fame meant anything to the young man Dustil didn't show it. He ignored the fans and continued to run.
The attractive shopping centers and the brightly lit gambling houses and nightclubs faded a
