Correlia, two weeks after the events in The Legend of Harash Soru 6.
Ordan Minoh and Harash Soru are returning from separate missions and have met up on Correlia to complete the final stage of their journies home.
Ordan Minoh: "I'm so happy for you Hara. Nay is a wonderful woman."
Harash Soru: "I know, she means everything to me. I just don't know if its the right choice."
Ordan frowned. and turned to Hara.
Ordan Minoh: "What do you mean?"
Engrossed in their discussion, neither Jedi notices the robed figure pull a lightsaber from his belt.
Darth Levid: "So the Sith shall end the great Jedi."
Levid spun about, activating his blade and sending the crowd screaming in fear.
Darth Levid: "Die!!!!!"
But suddenly a second blade appears and blocks Levid's blade centimetres from Hara's neck.
Jedi: "Away with you scum!"
Recovering from the surprise Hara reaches out with the Force and blasts the Sith back into the wall behind him.
The Sith pushes himself slowly to his knees.
Harash Soru: "Who are you?"
Darth Levid: "My name is Darth Levid. And whilst I failed today I will be your death Jedi!"
Levid suddenly dashed forward and disappeared into the crowds of frightened people.
Jedi: "We must go after him!"
Harash Soru: "Patience my friend. We will never find him in these crowds."
Ordan Minoh: "Who are you?"
Jedi: "My name is Ben Dovallia, I am a Jedi Knight of the Republic."
Ordan Minoh: "The Republic? There is no more Republic Master Dovallia."
Ben Dovallia: "What?"
Harash Soru: "The Sith betrayed the Republic and have almost destroyed the Jedi Order. How do you not know this?"
Ben Dovallia: "I have been working deep in the Outer Rim. I came here looking for news of the war. What will happen to the Jedi?"
Harash Soru: "Those of us who are left have established a base on Stewjon. You are welcome to join us there."
Ben Dovallia: "I will come with you. I must see this for myself."
All of a sudden Hara's holopad began to beep. He hit the activation button and smiled as an image of Nayam appeared before him.
Harash Soru: "Nay."
Nayam Burl: "Hara, we've received a message from Master Wilsan. He says that the Empire has been driven from Rhen Var by unknown forces."
Harash Soru: "Hmm, I see. Gather the Jedi Nay. I'll speak to you all when we return."
Stewjon, the Jedi Cave, two days later.
Harash Soru: "Thank you all for coming. We're here to discuss this increasing threat that is surrounding the galaxy."
Harash Soru: "Months ago I encountered Darth Nihilus, reincarnated in his own tomb. Some time later, Master Minoh and I were attacked by Darth Sion. Now, only days ago a third Sith attacked us. Something is on the rise. A new threat that is meant both for us Jedi and the ruling Sith I believe.
We must stop it.
I am authorising missions of any kind that you believe will help us uncover these Sith Lords. I have no idea where to start, but we must try. May the Force be with you."
Jake Inman: "Be wary all of you. Do not engage the Sith unless absolutely necessary."
Astron Zonaca: "Understood Masters. We will do our best I'm sure."
Hara waited until the area of the cave had emptied then closed his eyes.
Michael Kringe: "You doubt your recent decisions Hara."
Harash Soru: "I do Master. I wonder if I was right to sanction relationships between Jedi, or if I was merely being selfish."
Michael Kringe: "I suspect it was both Hara. You allowed the relationships because keeping them in the dark was part of the reason why Anakin betrayed you. But at the same time you cannot let go of Nayam."
Harash Soru: "Then I should not allow them."
Michael Kringe: "Hara. This is your Order, you can decide how to run it for you are Grand Master. Your allies have not spoken out against the idea, most of them are overjoyed to see you so happy. We Jedi are very selfless, it is part of us. To be selfish is to be human, and never forget that though you are a Jedi Hara, at your core you are human. The Force be with you, my friend."
Far away on Tatooine, Master Wilsan walks home having relayed the news to the Council on Stewjon.
As he walks he is aware of a presence near by, as though he is being watched.
Micleus turns around on several occasions and scans the landscape to find no trace of his phantom stalker.
However, Levid is there. Hidden deep within the shadows. And when the time is right, he will choose to strike.
