Arvel waits until Elias is finished monologuing, shakes his head, and says to Korath, "My condolences, sir."

“You think he’s bad,” Korath replies. “You should meet Trixi. If you know anything about Zeltrons, you’ll understand.”

Reesh would scowl at Elias as he seems to misunderstand what he was saying, but does not say any more. The jedi continue to chatter, and have a little time to explain the situation to the young chiss before the elderly man re-enters the room. He looks visibly surprised by the arrival of the party, glancing from them back to Jonas. "Ah, the rest of the procession I assume? Well, if you can please all follow me, we shall begin". The odd party is ushered through the certain to a dark room, the walls covered in the rich red satin with gold trim that the front of the shop had. Set on an ornate stone plinth in the centre of the room was a large blue ceramic vase. It was of excellent craftsmanship, with a spiderweb of some kind of gold material running over the surface. Placed beneath it was a republic flag, perhaps dug out by the man as a sign of respect for the fallen. 

The man would stand at the head of the aisle of the room, with pews running along the length of the room for those attending. As the party walk in he would silently gesture for Jonas to join him at the head of the room. "Thank you all for coming today. We have gathered in honour of your fallen comrade today" he would turn to look at Jonas carefully. "Would you like to say some words for your friend? If not I am sure I can speak on your behalf with a little guiding".

Jonas stands and looks at the assembled collection of beings and says, "It is said that a good man does the right thing, regardless of the cost.  It's ***** hard to do the right thing when your friends and neighbors do the wrong thing.  And it's nearly impossible to stand astride a burning star and yell at the galaxy, "Stop!  Stop the madness." And yet, that is what my Brother did.  The Republic would hate us.  The Order would hate us.  Our own friends would hate us.   But we saw and we knew.  My man, here, did what he could for us to survive.  For he was the smartest of our lot.  Maybe some of the others made it too.  Maybe they didn't.  Either way, my Brother gave his life for me.  The ultimate sacrifice.  Poodoo, man!  Didn't ask for that.  Didn't want that.  I sure as **** ain't worthy.  But that didn't mater for my Brother. My Brother gave it all for me.  And freely."

 

"So I say to you all assembled:  What do you see in his example?  You gotta figure that out on your own.  For me?  Well, poodoo!  I've got to rebuild a galaxy.  I owe the boy as much.  Force preserve us all."

Listening to the speech, Kark would straighten up a little as he hears the inspiring words. He had always thought he was doing what he could to help people, to do what he thought was right, but hearing this man made him think. Could he be doing more? Should he be doing more? Maybe coming with these strangers was a chance for him to really do some good, to change this galaxy that so much evil seemed to reside in. He would nod slightly to himself as he comes to a personal decision. Coming here was the right thing to do. 

Reesh would watch the on goings, sticking near the door to the room. He didn't know these people, or their fallen comrade, but he was struck by the passion that Jonas spoke with. Even for the jaded hunter it was rather inspiring, and did resonate with Reesh more than he excepted it would. He was brought back to the promise he made so long ago, to try and fix what he had done. It would seem that this man had the same plan (though most likely for different reasons). The gand would bow his head for a moment in respect for the fallen, remaining silent through the speech. 

The elderly man would nod approvingly as Jonas finishes, and would rest a soft hand on his shoulder. "Well said sir" he would murmur before subtly reaching for a button set into the wall he stood by. A piercing beam of golden light springs out from the ceiling, centring on the urn. It slowly widens till it covers the whole plinth in the lights radiance. It was a beautiful sight, and a fitting farewell for the jedi. "I will leave you all in peace, you may take your friend with you when you are ready". With that the man slips out of the door to the room, leaving the party with their own thoughts and feelings.

Arvel leans over the Korath and whispers, "What in the world was that about?"

"Sssssshhh," Korath replies quietly. "I'll tell you later."

 

After the ceremony, Korath leads the group back to the Jedi Star, during which he updates everyone on who they just held a funeral for. Once on board, he takes them to the library for a full pre-flight safety briefing  before heading to the bridge. 

"Everyone buckle in," Korath says over the intercom. "We're getting ready for takeoff."

As the group of Force Sensitives walked to the space port, Elias commed his brother. Hey Chemdat I ran into Korath, we're going to ditch the shuttle and leave Gorse on Korath's ship.

Chemdat, Oh **** no, you're not pawning me off on Korath, I found a buyer offworld, I'm taking the shuttle to him to get my payout and I'll see you when I see you, Chemdat out.

A few seconds later, they saw the first order shuttle rocket skyward.

Korath looked questioningly at Elias

Elias: let him go, I can find him later after he cools off.

He turns to the female Pantoran.  To answer your question, everyone in this group, including you, is force sensitive, and has the potential to become a Jedi.  Korath, Drez'n, Jonas, and myself are Jedi.  I can't speak to what if any tradition Mr. Reesh follows although I have my suspicions.  Korath's ship is a mobile jedi training academy, Arvel has signed on for what amounts to a jedi leadership class to help him be a better officer, I suspect that the Verpine Kark has signed up to train to be a jedi, Jonas' speech at the funeral home was quite eloquent and motivating.  We are proceeding to Mandalore, you are welcome to come along if you are interested in learning to use your gift.

Aris Renn: I am willing to tag along on a trial basis but I'm not ready to commit yet so I'm taking my own ship, a CEC Kestrel 100 that  I named the Astral Wren.  To Korath she asked  Is it ok if I dock with the Jedi Star before you jump to hyperspace?
