The Legend of Harash Soru 01 : The Dark SIde . . Roughly one standard hour after the death of Senator Padme Amidalla surviving Jedi Harash Soru, Shaak Ti and Dana Kowls arrived on Polis Massa to meet with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Master Yoda. Now the remaining Council members are about to reveal an age old secret to Master Soru.
Harash Soru: "You wished to see me Masters?"
Yoda: "Yes, something you should know there is."
Shaak Ti: "You have always been strong in the Force Hara, and you have encountered the Dark Side many times."
Obi-Wan: "We would expect there to be some trace of it left upon you. But there is nothing. It is as if the Dark Side has no effect on you."
Harash Soru: "I'm not sure I understand."
Yoda: "But you do! Strong in the Force you are Hara, wise and powerful. Know as we now know that incorruptible you are!"
Shaak Ti: "We cannot deny it Hara, the Dark Side has become an incredibly powerful force one we would use for good if it did not corrupt."
Yoda: "Use the Dark Side you can."
Harash Soru: "You cannot surely be suggesting I go out and learn the ways of the Sith. I mean, what if I fail?"
Yoda: "Suggesting exactly that we are! Strong you are Hara, you must do this, become a warrior, make sure that survive the Order does!"
Harash Soru: "Even if that were true, how would i know where to start?"
Obi-Wan Kenobi: "A wise Jedi once said to me, "The Force has a destiny for us all. However it is up to us to find our own way there.""
Two weeks later, Master Soru stood on the Dark Side infested planet of Korriban, staring up at the doors of an ancient tomb. Though his mind held doubts he could not deny that the Force had led him here. He only hoped that it was for the right reasons.
As he stepped inside the deathly still tomb he could feel the darkness pressing down upon him, threatening to suffocate him.
He entered the main room and began to hear a voice crawling about within his skull.
Voice: "Who enters my domain?"
Harash Soru: "One who would learn your power!"
A deep booming laugh filled the tomb and suddenly from the crypt a shadow burst forth, and within the curls of black smoke Harash could make out the form of Darth Nihilus. Instantly his head felt as if it were about to explode and he collapsed to the floor.
Nihilus: "My power is my own, certainly not privy to the likes of a Jedi."
Harash Soru: "No, Lord Nihilus, you must understand. I have been betrayed, i see now that the path of the Jedi is weak. I seek a greater power to help me defeat my enemies."
Nihilus: "Hmm, I can sense the power within you, you have potential. But first you must be tested."
There was a flash and when Harash opened his eyes he was stood on a rocky floor, shrouded in mist.
He was about to speak when suddenly his friends began to appear.
Yoda: "Think you really that a Member of the Council we would have made you?"
Mace: "You really think I considered us to be equals?"
Ki-Adi-Mundi: "I never respected you, you were nothing but a fool to me!"
Shaak Ti: "Did you truly believe that I ever loved you?"
Obi-Wan: "People say we are the same, but you pale in comparison to me!"
Kit Fisto: "I never trusted you, everything I told you was a lie!"
Yaddle: "A terrible Padawan you were. Ashamed of you, I am."
Dana Kowls: "You have failed me Master."
Harash's friend slowly began to advance, their lightsabers drawn and words of hate spilling from their mouths.
Harash Soru: "No! No you dont mean this!"
He breathed deeply and tried to compose himself. He felt an aura of calm spill over him and he knew what had to be done.
Harash Soru: "No, you are not my friends."
He activated his lightsaber and sprang into the fight. As he cut his friends down their bodies vanished from where they stood.
However, when he struck Dana she did not vanish. Instead she collapsed into Harash's arms.
Dana Kowls: "I... I... Hate you."
Harash closed his eyes as the deep laughing returned.
Nihilus: "I will train you, my apprentice."
Harash Soru did not know how long he had spent traing with Nihilus. During that time though he had seen terrible thing and experienced great pain.
Today that all ended.
Nihilus: "You have grown strong my apprentice. I have taught you everything I know. Hmm, the Dark Side of the Force is strong within you. Henceforth you shall be known as Darth..."
Harash Soru stood.
Harash Soru: "I need no name Nihilus. I have decieved you, you have given me the strength to protect the Jedi Order and for that I thank you."
Nihilus: "What? How dare you! But you are a fool to think so! I can feel the anger raging like a storm with you!"
Harash Soru: "But can you not also feel the peace and the hope that quell the storm?"
Harash turned and left the dumbstruck Nihilus in his wake.
Nihilus: "The Dark Side lives within you. You will carry the memories of what you did here forever and you will know anger and hatred. For you are Sith!"
Harash Soru: "No Nihlus."
Harash Soru: "I am a Jedi!"
