Template Type: Jedi Padawan (Battle Master Type)
Character Name: Cal Jeth
Sex: M Age: 15 Height: 1.8m Weight: 95.2 Kg
Physical Description: Cal is a broad-shouldered, muscular young man with shoulder-length light
brown hair and deep blue eyes. Hes big for his age, an attribute that often makes others guess him to be much older than he
really is. Cal almost always wears black. He usually has an intense look on his face, and most of the time is quite serious;
those few who get to know him can occasionally get a glimpse of the good humor reminiscent of his life before going into exile.
Background: Cal is the descendant of a powerful Jedi Master who was also a superb swordsman. Cal
is the first in many generations to actually be Force-sensitive, and as such has inherited a collection of knowledge gathered
by his ancestor, Arca Jeth. Cal has also inherited Arca's natural ability with the lightsaber and has been fascinated by the
stories passed down among his family about Arca's abilities to turn a desperate situation to victory through his skills.
Cal is living a double-life. Cals Force potential was originally discovered during the Clone Wars by a Jedi Master who was
stationed on his homeworld in the Outer Rim Territories. Master Kinadra immediately took Cal as his Padawan, as he currently
had none. There was no Clone Army presence there, and little chance for Cal to otherwise make the trip to Coruscant to begin
training at the Jedi Temple, due to a volatile local political environment which Master Kinadra was on-station to help mediate.
Cals family was originally thrilled at the prospect of having Cal trained as a Jedi AND kept close to home, and wasted no
time in passing on Arca Jeths store of knowledge to the first family member in generations to have been blessed with Force
That blessing seemed to be short-lived. After several years of training, Master Kinadra was faced with a tough decision; he
received an urgent message from Coruscant ordering all Jedi back to the Temple immediately. Knowing he had to respond, but
being in the middle of a delicate local situation, he did the only thing he could think ofhe left Cal to keep the peace while
he journeyed to Coruscant. He planned to update the Jedi Archives to show that Arca Jeths lineage had bred true, adding another
name to the rolls of the Jedi Order.
Several days after Master Kinadra left, Cal began having nightmares involving his Masters death. Without Kinadra to consult
about this, he consulted the Jedi Holocron hed inherited from his ancestor. He learned about Force visions, and received many
warnings about them: that the future wasnt certain, that sometimes the visions werent trustworthy, and that when you were
at peace, you could sometimes cause yourself to see far-away friends. Taking these lessons to heart, Cal began his meditations
to calm himself. As he reached that state of peace, he was suddenly assailed by a barrage of pain, grief, rage, and confusion.
At once, he saw the ethereal form of Master Kinadra standing before him. The Master told him that great evil had befallen
the galaxy; the clone army commissioned by Chancellor Palpatine had suddenly turned, cutting down any Jedi they encountered
in a hailstorm of blaster fire. Kinadra had been attacked by a whole platoon of clones at the Jedi Temple- but not before
he beheld the bodies of youngling Padawans strewn about the entire structure. He managed to hold off the troopers for a while,
deflecting bolts and evading his attackers. In the end, however, sheer numbers had prevailed, and the Jedi Master was slain.
Now Cal had a new and final mandate from his fallen Master: Survive. Blend in. Make yourself invisible, and do not draw attention
to yourself. Study the materials left to you by your ancestor, and now by me as well, but guard well your secret. One day
there may come a time when you can again openly wear the robes of the Jedi; until then, do not reveal your true self.
Taking this to heart, Cal immediately gathered up his belongings, which now included training materials from Master Kinadra
as well as his store inherited from Arca Jeth. Not knowing if his Master had added his name to the Jedi Archives, and too
frightened to even warn his family of what had transpired, Cal gathered all the credits he could find and simply disappeared.
Hes been on the run from the Empire ever since, learning skills by which he could earn his keep and practicing his Jedi skills
only in secret.
Personality: Not Available
Objectives: First and foremost, Cal wants to survive. Hes heard stories- especially from members
of Garm Bel Iblis resistance group- about Jedi survivors of Order 66 whod thought they were safe, only to be tracked down
by Darth Vader and his Jedi Hunters. Cals second goal is to eradicate the Empire, completely and utterly. Anyone who could
order (let alone carry out) the extermination of practically the entire Jedi Order needs to be taken out as soon as possible,
and his hold over the galaxy broken. Lastly, Cal wants to keep building his skills- both Force-related and non-Force related-
so he will one day be able to wear the Jedi robes freely.
