The Padawan Part 6

The attack group lifted off from Coruscant.  Three Republic Cruisers, the RSS Moenia, The Amenhep, and the Clover, sped to their jump positions.  led by General Aayla Secura and Commander Barriss Offee, the ships made their way to a final offensive on Felucia.

Conradin Hadranus, Duke of Achilleas and former Separatist commander, was on board as a consultant for the Jedi and Republic forces.  Yoda challenged him to think like a Jedi by assigning him a padawan, a young Twilek named Vallerie.

Conradin and Vallerie meditated together while the ships made their way to hyperspace.

Vallerie, having patiently felt a calm in her as they sat silently, opened her eyes and looked at her Master.

"Do you suppose we will meet a lot of resistance?"

Conradin opened his eyes and contemplated his answer.

"The death of Count Dooku has broken the Separatist movement.  There will be pockets of resistance, like on Felucuia, but I hardly think they will stand against us.  We're going after Shu Mai, and she is hardly a good tactician."  He almost smiled, but relief was mixed with bitterness.

The emotional turmoil was not lost on Vallerie, who was wise and observant beyond her youth.

"Are you feeling remorse?  We are so close to ending the war."

Conradin looked at the window, watching the bright haze of the hyperjump.

"I am grateful to be here, to have this chance to help bring peace.  This final campaign will help me atone for my mistakes.  It's not easy, knowing I was a part of this dreadful business."

"You were doing what you thought was right.  You tried to fight corruption, or at least what you thought was corruption in the Republic."

"Master Dooku certainly made it sound that way." He responded with a sigh.


The intercom sounded out, with Naval Commander Ramses' voice calling to him.

"Commander Hadranus, we are making our final approach to the Felucia system.  Your presence is requested on the bridge for tactical consultation."

Conradin stood up "Understood.  I'm on my way."

Vallerie smiled.  "Your part in this is almost over." She said with a positive energy.  "You will get us past the CIS fleet and Commander Secura will recover the planet.  Everything is coming together."

They exited the chamber.  Conradin's brow furled with uncertainty.  "Still, we should not underestimate the enemy.  Shu Mai is not above destroying an entire world just to mock any victory the Republic achieves.  She is completely amoral, and that makes me a little nervous."

Vallerie nodded, understanding.  "Then let us hope the assault will be swift."

They made their way to the lift.

Barriss was waiting by the lift with Lieutenant Galle, giving her Clone Commander final instructions.

"Go on, Galle.  We'll inspect the troops in the hanger after the briefing on the bridge." She bows.

Galle saluted.  "Yes, Commander." he marched away to rejoin his unit.

He walked close to Conradin and Vallerie fast, and stopped very briefly in front of Conradin, pointing a solid finger at the Jedi.

"Let's get one thing straight right now, Sep..." Galle was swift and to the point with a gruff business like tone.  "Your job is to clear the way for us, and you better deliver on your skills.  A lot of my men are counting on the support of the fleet and our air units.  Don't muck this up!"

Galle moved out of the way to continue, leaving Conradin and Vallerie stunned without time to reply.

"Oh yeah, one more thing..." Galle growled "You leave Commander Offee alone.  The Jedi have a big responsibility, and we don't need you distracting anyone from their duty.  Everyone knows about you, Seppy, and the way you look at her.  And I know personally that she has had feelings for you ever since the battle of Geidi Prime.  But we have a war on, a job to do.  Stay focused and keep and your head in the game, or I'll cut your heart out with a spoon!"

Galle marched away fast.  Vallerie turned to respond, but Conradin stopped her.

"He can't do that!  Who does he-"

"-Vallerie!  Let it go."  Conradin sighed.

Clones still viewed him with suspicion, a Separatist who rubbed elbows with Dooku, Grievous, and Ventress.  They didn't take too kindly to catering to a man who commanded droids and drank wine with wanted criminals.

"I can understand their feelings.  This is part of the atonement.  Facing their frustration and anger.  Hopefully, I can turn things around with this campaign."

"I just wish they could see in you what I see." Vallerie whispered as the got close to the lift.

Barriss was there, smiling.

"Welcome aboard, Duke Hadranus." she bowed as the doors closed and the lift moved to the bridge.

Conradin raised an eyebrow "Such formality, Barriss."

"We are going to have to maintain a formality while we are on the mission, commander."

Barriss' smile faded a little.  Barriss the friend was now hidden behind Commander Offee of the Jedi Order, and she could not afford to brook familiarity with the man who fraternized with the enemy.  Not here.

"I understand." Conradin replied.

Vallerie watched as both of them stiffened a little.  It was not awkward, just restrained.  She could still see some affection in their eyes.

But duty was everything now.  Conradin could not afford to screw up with this assault, and Barriss bottled up any emotional connection that would jeopardized the mission.

"With the war coming to an end, the Council may very well have a place for me eventually, should Anakin Skywalker decide to step away from his position.  I imagine Achilleas will need your guidance as well.  We must be mindful of the future."

"A future where...we might not see each other much...."

Barriss sighed a little, but remained stoic "The days of chaperoning you on diplomatic missions are long gone.  The days of youthful exuberance are past.  We must now accept the harsh reality of duty and bring this war to its end, Come what may."

The lift came to a halt and opened.  The bridge was buzzing with activity as the ship was preparing to exit hyperspace.

"Now is the time we need you most." Barriss looked at Conradin.

The three of them went to meet Aayla Secura, Commander Ramses and Captain Ozzel around the tactical table.

Conradin had nodded at Barriss without replying.  Words were not necessary, since they spoke much with just their eyes.

Vallerie could sense His feelings being bottled away.  She stayed quiet for his sake on the matter, but also for Barriss Offee, sensing the same bottled up reluctance behind the Commander's disciplined demeanor.
The Padawan Part 6
the adventure Continues with OC Conradin walking a path of redemption by helping the Republic end the war.  He also trains to be a Jedi by leading a padawan in a test of his character.  The road to redemption is a long one, since Conradin is viewed with suspicion by some Jedi and Clone troops.

A short confrontation with Lieutenant Galle and a reality check with Barriss Offee continue to test his emotional resolve, and his participation in the battle for Felucia might atone for his past association with Count Dooku.

Conradin Hadranus is my OC, and padawan Vallerie belongs to :iconlunarosedragon:

Thanks again to Jack for his time and talent :)

I liked it.  Having Yoda's voice in the episode was an interesting touch, but I liked this change of pace with the whole Master/Padawan experience at an ancient Jedi Temple.  It reminded me of the experiences of writing "There Were Ten", which was also about Padawans being tested.

It was a good Star Wars moment for me.
