Padawan Leenah Ziulara stretched out on her bed. Her Jedi master, Teslor-Tran was out on a mission that he deemed too dangerous for her. Her twin sister, Melena, was with her as well. Their Jedi masters were close friends, which was convenient for both girls, who loved spending time together.
Looking at Leenah and Melena, it would be difficult to tell that they were sisters, let alone twins. Leenah had dark brown hair that went down to her rib cage when she wasn't wearing her padawan braid. She was tall, with defined features and piercing dark eyes. Melena had short, straw-colored hair, and she was much shorter, with very petite features. Even their personalities were different. Melena was happy to take orders. Studious and dedicated, she believed in what the Jedi order stood for wholeheartedly, and sought to serve the Force.
Leenah, on the other hand, seeked purpose and knowledge. She refused to accept her orders without questioning them and scrutinizing whether they were worth following, which her Jedi master found to be her biggest flaw. She would rather disobey a direct order that she found pointless than to obey without question. Melena had no such disrespect for authority.
It had not always been that way. The sisters used to be almost one and the same. When they were both six years old, they lived with their mother and father on the Acatal system. They looked almost identical, with dirty blonde hair and tiny eyes. They were both similar: bubbly and full of joy. The Jedi had come to Acatal to recruit for their order. The girls' family was shopping for a new droid when they encountered some Jedi who noticed the sisters. They were noticeably strong in the Force. With the permission of their parents, both girls were taken to Onderon for training.
Over time, they became quite different, but they were still as close as ever.
"I hope our masters return soon." said Leenah to her sister.
"They should. They've been gone long enough." Melena replied.
"I swear, Master Tran is too cautious. I can handle myself!" Leenah complained.
"Come on. They're fighting the Sith. You don't want to get yourself killed just because you don't accompany him on enough missions!" argued Melena.
"I guess so." Leenah admitted. In her head, she had already prepared a plethora of arguments as to why she should be there, fighting with Master Tran, but she kept them to herself.
"He will be back soon." Melena assured her. "I say we practice lightsaber forms until they return."
Leenah got up and grumbled, "Fine."
