Revan


The Child was born, the spark of life,
Flaring bright in the Force... And the old Jedi,
Looked sadly upon the child and foretold a destiny;
As dark and black as night and
…As subtle and soft as the light…

"She is destined for great power, and life,
But ware' for she will fall many times
And only rise once… for this is hers to behold…"

And the fear that followed the
Prophecy was soon forgotten;
As they rejoiced in the child's birth.
…And all but one forget the child's
Dark destiny as the child grew…

She was strong in the Force; and her birth,
Was felt in the brilliant,
Flare of life, when she was born…
It spread through the Galaxy from
The Outer Rim to the Core Worlds…

Many a Jedi searched
For this flare in the Force,
The Sith destroyed colonies,
They ravaged families and worlds.
…And yet, nary answer
Or clue of the child was recovered…

But alas, the Two Orders failed…
For who would think to look for,
One so young yet talented… hidden…
…In the smallest place of them all?

After a time, the two Orders relented and
Surrendered to the impossibility of
Finding this Force talent…
The brilliance of untold power…

Shinning brightly in the Force…
Mocking them… Reminding them of
Their failure to find this child,
Who held the power within, to
Become a Master of all living things…

And she grew into a young woman,
Full of life and happiness; laughter and mischief...
Cocky, arrogant, proud and tender-hearted…
She was a pupil with very little to fail her.
Charmistic, persuasive, and powerful;
She led many in her path…

And, then she began to question her Masters…
…And their beliefs and morals
As the War began to rage
And more people died.

Finally the last link was cut,
And she grew cold and withdrawn
As she watched her family, die…
And she swore; she would avenge them all…

For every person who fell; whether child, or soldier
She would avenge them and avenge them she did.
She turned away from her Masters' teachings,
And sought those of the past, to learn her own knowledge.

She left with only a single friend;
Their love deeper than they knew,
…And the bond between them, strong as ever…
She taught and he learned from her
As her pupil and she was ruthless in her teachings;
Refusing to accept failure at any costs but one…

And she turned away from
The light and fell into darkness…
Some say, it was the will of the Force…
Others say it was the trick of fate…

But it didn't matter, for she fell…
And rose as the Dark Lord, as she watched as…
Her enemies tremble in fear, against her power.
For she had fallen to the Dark Side truly now…
