Sith diary 1
The tool of the sith, it can bring down people, leaders, even entire planets.
Fear will destroy all but the sith.
I started the day with a screaming Sith pure blood in my face. Although he was sith in race, he was not a Sith in power, not until he beat us all in the trails, which he swore he could.
"By the force, you cannot believe you have a chance at beating me in the trails. I am Sith! You are... Alien!!!"
"Zabrak. I am a zabrak..." I replied. Being a Zabrak, I was considered 'alien' to the sith empire. My bright orange skin was rare, especially combined with the blue hair weaved in plaits between my crown of tribal horns. My species also knew how to be very independent, and while the fellow trainees would be either cowering in fear or begging for forgiveness by now, I was still making idiotic comments in his ugly slimy face.
"Beg for forgiveness, alien slave." He ignited his red lightsabre "Before you lose an arm!"
"Have you not forgotten that I have not been a slave for almost 3 years." I reached for my own lightsabres, "Anyway. Forgiveness is not the way of the sith"
I ignited the yellow sabres and lunged at the Slime. He evaded. He threw in his own strike, which took off one of my horns.
"You moron!!!" I screamed.
"Learn your place weakling, or you won't make it to the trails, at least you might die with some honour there."
I sighed, I really needed to improve my sabre skills if I was going to beat him in the trails. I hoped I would have to fight him, he would make a damn good kill. I would take his life or die trying. If I did that I had a good chance of becoming a Darth, and I could leave my Alien name behind.
My birth name is Kham, but I am known to all but one as Alien. The one person who calls me by my name is a Twi'lek named Eluna. She is possibly the closest thing I have to a friend, and if we must fight in the trails, it would be a shame. As soon as slime left (I never called him by his first name, which was Ka'bish) Eluna ran up to me. As well as being a skilled fighter, Eluna had a talent of healing. Even though was a Jedi skill, she still studied and improved her healing in spare time.
"Kham! Are you okay? If he had been 2 inches closer to your head, you could be dead!" She said, so quickly I could barely make out what she was saying. Eluna was a very good sith, but she had a caring heart; I feared this could mean her end in the Trails in a days time.
"I'm fine," I mumbled, "but I feel quite humiliated, horns are of huge importance to a zabrak's honour..." Oh well, I thought, at least I could use this as rage if I fought Ka'bish, which could give me some power against him.
I spent the rest of the day sparring with training droids, improving my strength and tactics was essential.
At last it was time for our daily meal. I was starved, but I ignored the weakness. As I entered the hall, I saw Eluna on the floor. Her lower legs were completely gone, the cauterised wound still giving off smoke. Her eyes flashed over to me.
"Kham! Look out, Ka'bish and his thugs are knocking out the other contestants! They WILL kill you, you're the strongest opposition to them... Be... Carefu-" she fainted, her pale blue lekku had stopped moving, but I could sense that she was living.
Suddenly, the Slime appeared behind me. He brought his sabre to my waist, but I blocked the fatal strike with ease.
We had been fighting back and forth for over ten minutes before Darth Zani came into the room.
"Cease your fighting at once!!!" She yelled, "you must not fight until the trails!"
The slime opened his mouth "I am sorry Lord Zani, but I was trying to defend the poor Twi'lek after this savage alien took her legs. I did the best I could, but I fear it may be to late..." I started to feel the rage tower up inside me.
"STOP IT. YOU ARE LYING!!!" I ran up to the Sith blood; Ka'bish was no more.
I looked at Lord Zani, and then to Eluna. Then Darth Zani did something I didn't expect. She started to clap.
"You have used your rage, and that made you powerful. Alien, I grant you rank of Sith apprentice, MY apprentice." She removed her hood, and to my surprise, a crown of ten perfectly shaped horns, and her tattoos covered her face in darkness. I would no longer be an alien alone; I would be an alien with my master.
"Yes," I bowed low to the floor, "my master."
"Rise, Darth... Ira, and become my new apprentice. Together, we will show what us 'Aliens' can do!" She let out a dark cackle, and walked towards the door "Now, lets help your friend get home!"
