MORE on Slavak: Last Known Jedi of House Pelagia
INITIAL PLOT HOOK: Slavak was brought to the Hejaran will reading when he got wind that Hejaran had inside information about the Jedi Academy Slavak attended. He was also supposed to meet with the Ambassador, who agreed to accompany Slavak. They hired Starian and the “Freeman’s Demise” to take them to Pella.
NA’VE & SHELTERED TEEN JEDI: Slavak was born to a Jedi family and not long after his birth, his parents were persecuted as Jedi by the Empire. Before their death, Joseph’s parents entrusted his well-being to a trusted family who adopted him – the Noble Family of Slavak. The Slavaks, knowing that his parents would want him to train in the Jedi traditions, helped form the underground academy of Pelagia Jedi, a secret academy of Purge survivors located deep within ancient submarine ruins. For several years, Joseph spent his life in these cramped spaces, training daily.
Upon turning 18, Joseph convinced his adopted family to allow him to apprentice into the Pelagia Diplomat corp. His first assignment was talks with the Ambassador from Basilisk who oddly requested him by name.
ORACLE’S VISIONS: Slavak’s Jedi training developed his basic skills, but since his exposure to the -universe- awoke power of seeing. He continues to get visions of possible futures related to him and those close to him.
THE GORDA: Banigor Mor-Tan introduced the Cult to Slavak as a sanctuary for people like Slavak. This was quite appealing to him, since he felt the heat of the Imperial Inquisition on his neck daily, and felt lost in a universe that was out to destroy his order. It was clear that Mor’Tan had plans for Slavak. When he could, Mor’Tan trained Slavak in the Force and its power. He was sculpting Slavak for something. This “something” first became clear when Slavak had a vision of a great warrior uniting the cults. It was his face that he saw behind the armored helmet. He was later told of the prophecy of Gorda – about a great warrior doing what his vision told him and that he was the Tara’Nak’s version of that. There were a dozen or so cults contending they had the True Gorda. Mor’Tan told Slavak there was going to be a trial for the True Gorda. Once chosen, the Gorda would unite the cults under one doctrine. All the cults seemed to agree to this.
The only rival that concerned Slavak was a man named Zel Soldak. He proclaimed to be immortal and lead a cult that held him up high as their messiah. With what he had learned from Gretydrake and the secrets of Camille, he knew that Soldak could be from that mysterious world, suspected so. They would find out during the Hunt on the Dark World.
