Born in an Unknown area of space, Kael was delivered to the Jedi Temple on Tython during the war with the Sith and the Empire. As a Child, Ithor was not the greatest force student. His attunement was.. Lacking. It was not until later in his Years when a Master discovered him up later than normal curfue, practising with his training saber the movements he was taught the earlier day. The Master Noticed that although he was doing the proper swings he seemed to have a quick flicker of movement which would slam into the training dummy harder than his proper hits. The Jedi seemed to think he was simply making a sloppy mistake in his movements, but upon closer inspection, he discovered that the forms were executed to perfection after many long drills earlier in the day. Yet, the master noticed the flicker of movement was so fast he had to strain his eyes to see it clearly. He was making a lightning fast arc after an overhead which slammed into the training dummy harder than before. Soon enough, the Master approched him, wanting him to continue the movements he was doing. Thinking he was in trouble he did so, this time without the flicker of movement. The Jedi told him to do it like he did before and as expected, that flicker of movement slammed into the dummy once more, this time a diagonal upward strike. Seeing the Potential in the Child, Greyback, The Wookiee Jedi took the young Kael Ithor as his padawan the following day, beginning his hard and rigorous training for unbeknownst to Ithor at the time, he was executing movements of a Knight level, a feat that the Master believed to mean that Ithor was gifted not in the force, But in the art of the Sword.
Years of Rigorous and exhausting training had made the young teenage Ithor into a greater swordsman than his master had predicted. Among his skills with a blade, Greyback discovered that Ithor had a knack for thinking on his feet, usually using the environment against his master when they sparred. During one of their spar's, Ithor had used the dust on the ground to attack his Master's eyes, making him rely on his senses, this trick allowed him to defeat his master in the spar.
Greyback was a stern and hard teacher, often pushing Ithor to the limit's of his stamina. He was frequently told to duel with weights, and often had to climb the nearby cliff faces for a 'warm-up'. All this hard work excelled Ithor's stamina and discipline to even greater levels. He often fought his master for hours before one of them became too tired or both. Despite the Harshness of the training he undertook, Ithor and Greyback were great friends and companions, often sharing the same ideals as each other. At the age of seventeen Ithor began his first mission with Greyback where they were asked to investigate the murders at an illegal fight club on Malastare. This mission had Ithor and his master fighting dozens of thugs and hitmen as they finally made their way towards the kingpin who they brought to justice. They were ever vigilant that they might be sucked into the War that was occurring, so Greyback often chose close to home missions.
The War Escalates[color=lightblue]
Several Missions passed, Ithor was now an Adult at nineteen years of age. He himself had become an accomplished duelist and second only to his Master as the Jedi's greatest swordsman on Tython. Eventually the duo were called to war as the Jedi began to fully involve themselves into the War. Called upon many fronts, Greyback and Ithor together fought against the enemy, attempting to drive the Sith and the Empire back from the mid-rim. Despite their victories, the Empire was gaining an upper hand. Soon enough, Ithor and Greyback were called to lead a republic defence on Jabiim with a few
Battalions left. The republic, not worried about an imperial assault continued onwards to other battles occurring. When the Sith landed, they bombed the new encampments of the republic and landed in a force of a few dozen Battalions. Despite this. The republic's troops valiantly fought on, under the Leadership of Greyback. The bloody Battle that ensued would later be named to The Last Stand on Jabiim.
Day one of the invasion, the Republic forces, wanting to gain the upper hand, set up camps along the cliff faces and swamps southwest of the imperial main. These set-up's were ambushed by the waiting enemy battalions which cut the republic's forces down, losing a third of the forces remaining. Through a surprise attack, Greyback and Ithor with a small band of bombers, destroyed the Imperial advance, securing the republic's survival. Day two involved the enemy using coordinated fast mobile attacks on the far bases, involving minor losses. The Republic set up two more basecamps to the enemies four. Out of nowhere, a slow mobile force of assault tanks and a battalion attacked the rear of the republic force, forcing them to abandon the bases and return to the secondary defence. Greyback boldy told his men that they were going to go around the slow mobile forces and cut them down with fast units. They attacked the rear of the enemy force ensuing in another bloody skirmish, further losses to the republic continued to mount as well as many Jedi being slain.
Day three Involved the republic forces attacking the secondary defence of the enemy before being cut down swiftly by the sheer numbers of the enemy. Greyback drew his men back to the Final Base line, the Republic troops entrenched themselves there. The enemies army moved towards the base in full force as the full force of the republic held the line. Day four. Thousands dead by traps and attacks from all sides, yet the Republic troopers under Greybacks command continue to hold the line. Day five. the republic troopers were relieved to see the enemy pulling back to mount up. During this time, Greyback, with his padawan beside him invigorated the brave defenders with a speech of full power and fury:
'My brothers. Long have we fought on this Mud-ball of a planet! Long have we lost brethren to the Enemy left and right. Long have we had to cope with a open field, enemy snipers picking us off! and yet, Here we are. We are still here. And I swear to you, No matter the force. No matter the power that the enemy holds. No matter how many men they have! We will fight on! Until there is not one of us Left breathing! Noble Soldiers of the republic, The Sith have pushed and pushed, trying to break into our republic, trying to destroy all that we have achieved. and though they have the numbers, this day, This day, and the next, We fight! Not for glory, not for power or conquest, But for Freedom! May the Enemy fear us, because this day and the next, We will fight like Wolverines, and we will hold this line Until not one of us is left standing, FOR THE REPUBLIC!'
The Bloody Battle on Jabiim[color=lightblue]
Enemy Forces close on the republic main base.
Followed by his frightening cry, the cry of thousands of able-bodied soldiers shouted as one so loud the enemy could hear them from their encampment. The chilling cries they made in blood-lust were enough to scare most men. When the enemy Finally attacked the final line of Defence, the brave and loyal soldiers of the republic took up the roar of their commander and fought like ten of the imperials. Although slowly they were cut down, they hammered so hard into the imperial forces, they were left with two Divisions. Day six. the Final day. The Imperials and Sith were closing around the brave defenders leaving no way of escape, but still, the great warriors fought on slaying hundreds of imperials until finally their last stand began. Soldiers were cut down left and right, but the Commander Greyback drew close to them, filling them with Passion and strength to fight on. Finally, the commander of the sith and empire forces drew close, his powerful aura radiated from him. Instantly, Greyback lept towards him and engaged him in a vicious one on one duel. Ithor continued to fight on, despite his men falling before him, he continued on until but a handful of imperials were left. He and the surviving soldiers continued on.
The Final Stand of the Republic Defenders
The Last Stand[color=lightblue]
The Fight lasted long. The sith was Powerful in the Darkside and Greyback was countered at every hit, every slash, ever parry. He found himself caught having to fight on despite being unable to defeat the powerful foe. Despite the Power the Darksider had, he was fatigued as well, Soon enough, all of the Republic forces were Cut down leaving only Ithor and His master. Ithor in turn left the Imperials with only their leader. The battle continued for hours, neither side giving up on the battle to the death. It was not until Ithor had finally finished the last Imperial that he turned to see the Darksider holding his master in a force grip, strangling him. His slow death however was quickly changed as a Crimson blade embedded itself into Master Greyback's chest. Ithor's Cry of anguish was met with his cold steel-like eyes as immediatly he lept like lightning towards the Sith attacking him with blinding speed. The Darksider found it near impossible to keep up with the flickers and jabs of a Natural like Ithor, and with his Training, he was now a Master at swordplay. He continued to hammer and probe the Darksider's defences before finally he broke the defence, backflipping over the sith his sword in a backhand stance as he threw his saber while whirling away from a blast of lightning, the Saber found it's mark, Stabbing the sith in the chest, ending his life. Despite this, Ithor had taken a hit from the sith's lightsaber, dismembering his right leg. Ithor, with exhaustion, fatigue and Agony, fell to his knee's among the dead.
The Aftermath of the Battle.
The republic, returning to the bloody battle discovered Ithor and transported him back to Tython where he rested for more than two days. when He awoke. He was told to report to the Jedi Council after he had his prosthetic emplaced. He did so, discovering a knighting ceremony for him. He felt sadness that his master was not with him, but he was knighted nonetheless. After the ceremony, He arrived at the medbay where his master's body had been recovered. He took Greybacks body to a funeral Pyre and gave his master the burial of a Warrior. 'goodbye, Master.' He said softly. Throughout his time as a Knight, Ithor entered many battles, including the frontline battles such as Corellia and Coruscant. A Decade later, a few years after his Promotion to Jedi Master, Kael Left the Jedi Order for reasons Unknown. He had been missing for exactly 30 Years.
Kael, having left the Jedi Order, travelled for many years, searching for the unknown. Asleep in his bed onboard his ship, 'Imperi', Kael awoke to a vision of a strange blue planet. He followed the course of his vision to the world of Sempi. An ancient Jedi World. When he landed on the surface, He was attacked by blade wielding force users. He Defended himself, taking down some of the blade wielders. After some time, the fighting stopped as both sides realised that the other was not an enemy. Kael learnt that these strange force wielders were known as the Sempikai, an ancient force user race transcending the founding of the Jedi. Kael discovered much history and Lore or the force, and of the Jedi, which had been accumulated by the Sempikai. In this time, he falls upon an Knowledge of an Ancient Sect of Jedi on Sempi, known as the Order of the Grey. Curious and wishing to know more, Kael discovered the remnants of a grey stone alter near a rocky crevice, cut out of the mountain. He discovered an entrance in this crevice, where he was greeted by a Member of the Grey, A ancient sect of Old Jedi Masters from across the Galaxy. These Masters were the most powerful and wise of the Jedi Order, Many of them presumed dead. The Sect welcomed him to their order, to which his training under these masters began, among other Jedi who had heard the call of the strange planet. Slowly, through decades of training, Kael rose to become a prominent member of the Order and was soon among the few who survived the challenges on the Planet. During his time there, Kael was summoned to the Leader of the Grey's Chambers. Having never seen the Leader before, Kael was cautious and wary, however, he soon let go of his cautiousness. He Discovered that the Grey was not a physical being, But an Entity of the Force, Born more than a Millenia Ago. He was told by the voice that he was chosen among his bretheren to return to the Jedi Temple to which he belonged and bring them urgent news of a Dark evil that is yet to manifest itself. Kael promised to get the information to them and set out towards the Jedi Temple, with news of a threat.
