Birth of a New Galaxy - Chapter 1 The usual blue-green glow from Neomisia’s rings lit up the kingdom underneath the dark early morning sky. Several human-like figures, silhouetted by the dimness, walked the streets and the markings on their hare shaped heads glowed in the dark. The Neom people always liked to get an early start on things and as a race they didn’t require much sleep. Just as the Neoms, the Jedi too were early risers, and this morning would be the start of much more than a new day, but also a new beginning. Today was the day for the Recruitment trials, and four new, young force-users will soon start their very own journey towards becoming a Jedi Master. On the west side of the kingdom, the recently built Jedi Temple stood beside many other temples and pyramid shaped structures. Inside, the potential Padawans were awoken and told to gather in one of the corridors outside the council room to begin their first trial. A cloaked Jedi apprentice led them there and removed her hood when they reached the corridor. Her face was snow white with a red mark down her bottom lip and the rest of her round head and neck appeared to be made of dark metal. She was an attractive girl with her overall appearance seeming quite edgy, and it was evident she had a feisty side. “Keep up newbs, the masters await you.” She told the potential Padawans with a teasing smirk as they followed her through the temple. They arrived in a line outside the council room and the girl that gathered them leaned against the door frame casually with her lightsaber swaying on her hip. She crossed her arms and looked to the line, “Go on, shuffle in." She said motioning her head to the entrance. Inside the council room, all four Jedi masters awaited the young aspiring Jedi. They each sat on tall thrown-like chairs and there presence felt quite intimidating with their combined skill and knowledge of the force all in one room. Grand Master Valeruc sat in the first chair and he waited patiently, folding his large greyish blue hands together in his lap. Master Valeda sat beside him with Brando coming next and then, lastly, the strikingly beautiful Master Alzora with her long crimson hair. They all awaited the potential Padawan with serious, thoughtful expressions. When the young ones entered, Valeruc was the first to have a word. "Good day to you all. Tell me your favorite line from the code of conduct, and explain to us how it relates to your desire to become a Jedi apprentice." Valeruc said with a wise, calming voice. The council expects for them to take turns with their explanations and in order down the line.
