of the Lastname, Mal'veah, has been unknown. Investigations would lead to a Jedi Master during the Clone Wars with the Name Rundo Valeah. As a Sentinel Shadow he was sent to Haruun Kal and eventually survived the Great Jedi Purge. What is known is that the Jedi Master has married a Korun of the Ghôsh Mal. Yet it had two different Tribes, the Othari, Warriors of the Ghôsh Mal and the Faroth, Hunters of the Ghôsh Mal, with the diplomatic skills of Valeah, eventually a third tribe was founded which later became the tribe Veah within the Ghôsh. Also known is that Ghôsh Mal today is presented by the tribes of Mal'veah, Mal'othari and Mal'faroth, which is symbolized in the Crest of the Ghôsh Mal as 3 erratic rhombuses, whilst the other symbol eventually indicates the strength of each tribe in Numbers. Members of the Ghôsh, refer to each other by calling the Tribe Name, which in case Aurelia Mal'veah would be Aurelia Veah, or as Aurelia Mal to show unity during official gatherings of the Ghôsh.
Born in 208 ABY on Haruun Kal, her parents emigrated to Coruscant as soon they were able to and prospered at the manufacturing industry. In later years Aurelia's mother told her Daughter they left her homeworld, because of a warning from a Force Ghost during a vision. As all Korunnai were Force-sensitive and used their Force powers to bind Akk dogs and Grassers to themselves.
"I need to talk to you about your daughter. She is strong with the force and with guidance, patience and work, she'll become a strong force for the Light"
— Aneuryn Bey to the Parents of Aurelia
In 212 ABY a Jedi crossed the paths of the young girl. Aurelia was strong with the force and held two villains in check with the help of it. Aneuryn Bey, the Jedi Knight who found her, spent days with Aurelia and her parents and finally convinced them to allow her to bring her to the Jedi Council as they would decide if the young girl will become a Jedi. Aneuryn Bey was considered to be among the oldest and dearest friends of Aurelia, as she felt a large amount of gratitude to her for discovering her Force sensitivity and ensuring that she would be given a home at the Jedi Temple.
"She is limiting herself, deviant to people who try to teach her and to top that, she has no doubts that the teachers are holding her back. She can't become your Padawan, Master Bey"
— an unknown Master about Aurelia, to Master Bey
ral days of testing, the young girl became an Initiate as a Youngling. Masters refered to her as being powerful with the force, but limiting herself. Her lazyness and impatience were slowing the progress of her training down and made it more and more risky. When Aurelia turned 10 Aneuryn Bey offered the Council to take the Youngling as her Padawan, but they weren't sure if the paths of Aurelia would be one of a Jedi, and both of them would be emotionally too much attached to each other anyways, due to Bey has found the Girl and brought her to the Temple. By courtesey of Aneuryn Bey's negotiating skills, Bey was able to convince the Council, that they shouldn't send a potentially strong Jedi to the Service Corps, but instead having a closer eye on her during the time as an Apprentice would allow her to become Part of the Order. It's unknown, but eventually Bey acquainted the Council to train Aurelia anyways, if they agree or not.
Padawan - Chapter I
" I've chosen you to become my Padawan for two Reasons. The first is because i trust in you and lost one of my former Padawans. The second is, that the Council doubt your abilities to become a Jedi. My dear, I want you to remind them, that they are not free from mistakes! "
— Master Bey to Aurelia
As the council gave permission to take the Youngling as her Padawan, Bey and Aurelia spent much time with meditating to strengthen the connection of Aurelia with the force and to make her reflect her own flaws. The progress still was slow even the older Padawan of Bey, Rika Sy'rin Th'ek tingled the young humans curiosity and got her from beeing lazy to interested.
" For a moment i thought, i would have lost both of you, then Aurelia has shown us, that she wears her heart on the right place. An important thing for a Jedi, Rike, we both can learn from it. "
— Master Bey to her Padawans Aurelia and Rike
As the time went by Aurelia was talented but not where she could have been and Rika Sy'rin Th'ek felt herself slowed down in her progress by the young human, especially since Bey have given much of her attention to the young human, so the Twi'lek became emotional during a training fight and used her emotions to strike, but Aurelia intuitive acting, could stop her friend. Even though Aneuryn Bey talked to them later about her fear that she has lost both her Padawans, Aurelia stayed and helped her friend back to the light side.
A few days after Aurelias 17th birthday, her Master and her got a mission on Tattooine. Rike had to stay on Coruscant for her Trials of Knowledge. As the two approached at Tattoine they found a whole village burning and every civilian dead. To find the source of this event both, the Master and the Padawan split apart. Aurelia, as she became strong in tracking echoes through the force, found those who were responsible for the crime in a Cave. Seeing them celebrating the victory and bragging about how they were killing the people, nearly overwhelmed the young woman, but she was able to calm down again to finish her task. Guiding her Master to the place where she found the villains, both had to witness that Dark Jedi were among them. A heated fight inflamed after short negotiations but the Villains were too many. Bey got wounded in her stomach by a Blaster bolt and both had to escape. To cover the retreat, Aurelia destroid the ceiling of the Cave and eventually killed some of the Villains
"I wish Rike would be here, now I fear that you will have to comfort her. You need to leave now, I'll cover your retreat and I don't accept a discussion about it. When you don't leave I'll stab myself! But you have to know that I am proud of what you have achieved my dear. Don't stop learning... Promise me that Aurelia.
There was a third reason to take you as my Padawan, I have never told you about. Once in your future I have seen that you will become a light of hope! May the force always be with you, Aurelia Mal'veah, my Sister through the Force! "
— Master Bey's last words directed to Aren
Sent away to get help, Aren didn't want to leave her Master. Aneuryn Bey insisted. Taking what she would need to order reinforcements, Aurelia left her Master with a bad feeling. With a long distance communication the Padawan contacted the Council and informed them about the events on Tattooine, but the request for reinforcements stayed unanswered. Aurelia decided to get back to her Master and rescue her, but came too late. Aneuryn Bey had been passed away and became one with the force. Emotional agitated, the Padawan made her leave to Coruscant and faced the council with blames about the death of her Master. Finding the Council is acting apathetic and for the first time finding lies in their duties as Guardians of the Peace. Instead Aurelia got rebuked for her harsh words towards the Council, but nonetheless, they saw it as her final trial through the force. To answer this, the Council decided to Knight the Padawan, for facing Dark Jedi. Aurelia became sick of all of this and felt betrayed. She should celebrate her own promotion in the Moment of death of her former Master? Nothing she could tolerate.
Back on Tattooine she tracked down the Villians. Taking them out one by one and arrested them if possible. Just two of them survived, a Dark Jedi and a Head-hunter from Coruscant, where, ironically, she brought them to.
" Is sitting on your chairs and discuss about the peace, all this Council is able to do? If this is what you call Guardian of the Peace, i'd rather stop to be one of you. Look at those and do at least what you can do best, holding trial about what to do with them! "
— Aurelia confronts the Council, to tell them about her leaving
At the Council Chamber,
Aurelia threw the tied up Villains in its middle, followed by hard words about the failure of the Order. As she finished, the Padawan left the room, right after making sure they'd know about her leaving the Order. Back into her chamber to get out all of her stuff, Rike appeared, telling her that the Council has sent her to convince Aurelia to stay, but also to calm her down. Rike showed gratitude for her friend's assistance when she lost her temper, but in return Aurelia blamed her to be just a puppet of the Order. Aurelia felt bitterness, but she just wanted to make sure that Rike won't follow her, when she was accusing her following a corrupt and apathetic order without questioning. As Bey, Rike and Aurelia had been on Nar Shaddaa before and Aurelia felt how the Echoes of the planet were able to hide her bond to the force to others, she went there to hide herself.
Leaving the Order
On Nar Shaddaa, the former Padawan took a new identity for herself. Now known as Ereen Sesslyn, most people started calling her simply "Aren", as she pronounced herself like it. She started studies in Technology and found herself very talented. She stopped her training and cut herself from her lightsabers to leave everything of her past behind. It has been a tough time, she had to go through as most parts of the Area she lived in, were held in the terrorizing grip of Crime Lords. Not able to start proper business, Aurelia decided to repair things for people and would just ask for food as loan. She learned to live with simple things and found an old and left warehouse, in which smaller back rooms, she made herself a home. Horting technological waste and stuff to repair she got very good in her new role, respected by the Denizens. It was also the time where Aurelia has built her first remote, which just did not work properly and efficient.
A group of people, whom kept fighting against the Crime Lords in the underground, took notice of her abilities and asked for help with equipment. Later they also asked the Padawan to join them at their Operations. First resisting, the need to help grew inside of Aren and she became a huge part of the success of the resistance, due to her Jedi Training. Unfortunately it caught attention to either the group and the mysterious Lady, whom have taken care that the Crime Lords lost fear as a weapon and helped the Denizens to become rebellious against their demands. Over two years she has strengthened her surroundings with courage and deeds. During that time 'Aren' was on the top list of bounties and often enough hunted down by Bounty Hunters of the Crime Lords. During one of this events, eventually the Bounty Hunters became more reckless and cruel towards the former Jedi and burned down a whole building complex as a last warning to her. It hasn't failed it's impact on 'Aren' and she stepped back and retired from any actions against the Crime Lords.
Eventually the Crime Lords have captured dozens of families, which brought Aren back into the resistant Group. Aren infiltrated a Base of a Crime Lord, where rumours got spread, the families would be held captured. Just accompanied by a young Twi'lek who became a close friend of Aren, they advance into a well guarded Warehouse and prepared to rescue the families. The abduction was just meant as a trap to finally get the chance to lay hands on the Force User, by a dozen of Bounty Hunters. Leaving her no choice but to surrender, Aren got knocked flat and both, her friend and her got captured.
It is unknown what happened during the next year. Rumors were spread that a Twi'lek was held captured but alive to ensure the Services of a Force User. Also that a human female was seen with an energetic collar, which she couldn't get rid of in one of the back rooms of a Nightclub. During that time on Nar Shaddaa, the former Jedi saw herself confronted with the temptations of the dark side and her tendencies to the Lightside got out of balance. Nearly she fell, during her escape, as she struck down every living being related with the Crime Lords and the Crime Lords themselves. At least, before she embraced the darkness, Aren decided to not allow herself to get corrupted any further and maybe become a threat for others herself. Eventually the young woman has found the key against the Dark Side, by discovering that one would have to decide to embrace darkness on one's own will, otherwise one would not fall.
Dantooine Jedi Order
((Based on real events in SWRP))
Back to studies
After several days of wandering around on the surface of Dantooine, and between the Jedi and other denizens, the young woman decided to take responsibility for her being gifted with the knowledge and abilities to listen to the Force and she applied to become Student of the Enclave. During her time as Student, Aren made the acquaintance of Ulesche, a Togruta, once related to the Dark Side. The two became close friends and trained a lot with each other. Aurelia also met several Masters, Knights and Padawans, whom all had their part in making the young woman feel home and respected.
A Mission to Yavin IV with Lady Adrianne Romanov, became more dangerous than expected, as several Representatives of the Dark Jedi appeared, after the Student and the Knight have met with Members of the Kalway Order of the Jedi. Fortunately this meeting had not become aggressive, as the Representatives were seeking for help against "Death Watch" and not to mess around with the Jedi Orders of Yavin IV and Dantooine at the same time. After this Mission, the young Knight and the Student felt that it was the will of the Force to bring them together to Yavin IV, and a Friendship had begun to start
Padawan - Chapter II
" I once had felt it as well, i mean that maybe the darkside would be my path. I walked on a thin line, but decided not to become a threat. I believe that mostly the Dark Side can corrupt you only then, when you decide to allow it "
— Aren to her Master Adrianne
Adrianne Romanov took the Student with her to the Jedi Temple of Coruscant, where both of them were looking into
the future and the Jedi Knight offered Aren, to become her Mentor. The Student didn't know what to say, as she found herself deeply connected with Adrianne but also got offers of other Knights. After the return to Dantooine and a few days of consideration, the Student accepted the offer and became Lady Adrianne's first Padawan learner.
The first lessons about the force and being a Jedi, were strange for the young Knight, as on one hand she accepted her new path, but on the other had lived willingly without the dogmas for several years, but as her training went on, Aren familiarized with her role and accepted more and more, what of her past she has left behind and as result, she was able to finish the first section, when the Padawan created a lightsaber.
Now the training has started in it's full extent. Combat training, lessons of knowledge, meditation became a daily basis of her life. When Adrianne thought, Aren would be prepared enough, they went on Missions together.Once they were inverstigating the disappear of Ulesche, the friend of both of them and they found him on Ord Mantel where he engaged a fight with both of them. The Padawan was shocked but found suspicious, that he called himself like an old Sith Lord, not by his own Name.
Aurelia should never find out what has happened, because Ulesche came back to the Enclave a few days later and seem that he forgot about the Happenings, so the young Padawan decided to keep it like that. But anyways, before it was possible to spend more time with him, he stabbed a fellow Padawan and she died. Ulesche has become once again a fallen Jedi, something she hardly was able to accept.
Her Master, Adrianne, decided to keep her Padawan busy from that day on, so she couldn't think too much about the betrayal and they headed from Mission to Mission and advanced trainings took place.
As the time went by, Aren found her Master in a fight with a Dark Jedi Cyborg on Dantooine. Before she was able to reach them, the Cyborg was able to defeat Adrianne, wounded her, in sight range of the Padawan. He left a Datapad on the Jedi Knights Chest, before he was able to retreat. Aren was tempted to follow, but her Master was in need of medical treatment, so she stopped right at her and checked for the Injuries taken. After taking Adrianne to the Medical Center to care for the wounds and proceeded, what she and the Medical Droids were able to do to help her Master until she became out of danger, Aren followed the orders on the Datapad, which lead her into the Crystal caves of Dantooine. There she found another Datapad which called her to Korriban and after manipulating the Medical Droids and leaving a Message in the Medical Report of Adrianne, the Padawan departed.
- Aren: "Take that communicator and place it on the Box on your left and then.. we will talk."
- Jesse Tresaiser: "You are not in a position to bargain, padawan."
- Aren: "My Cards on the table are not weaker than yours."
- ― Aren negotiats with a Sith Cyborg
Arrived on Korriban, the disguised Padawan met the Sith in one of the Tombs. The Dark Side was strong at that there, where a long and aggressive negotiation took place. Making it end without drawing her weapon, she gave him what he demanded, and in return he did what she demanded. But the Cyborg was tricky and sent her to another Mission for him. Not feeling like becoming a playball to a Sith, but wanting to find out the hidden agenda, the Padawan followed this Order and went to Dagobah to get the Cyborg what he was demanding. On her way back to Rhelg, she gave instruction to her friend and fellow Padawan Norma, to watch for her Master but also that she is moving to Rhelg and if she wouldn't notify her in a certain time, she should send a Rescue team to get her out.
When Aren arrived at Rhelg she noticed what the Sith was interested in, so she brought him what he demanded and which got revealed as Mission to buy him some time to study a Starmap. Finally after short negotiations, she got the device and could, after she was back on Dantooine, disable the Bombs, placed around the Enclave.
Aren had to prepare herself for the last Trials in her time as Adrianne's Padawan and spent most of her time in the enclave again. Sitting in the Library and listening to lectures and lessons, Aren passed all her trials with honor.
In weal and woe
In a short period of time, in just 2 years, Aren has made it from Student to become ready for her final Trials. The last days of her Padawanship, her Master and the Padawan spent with Meditation and especially the day before her time as Padawanship found its end, Aren spent deeply connected with the force and looked into her future, presence and past.
"My dear Aren, I met you a few days after I got knighted, I told myself I wasn't going to take a padawan yet, that I wanted to wait for someone I felt a connection with. When I took you to the student trip in Yavin I noticed something in you, I was unsure if take a student to train so soon after I got knighted, but I FELT like i needed to train you, so I did it, and even after you got other amazing offers from Knights and Masters, you said yes to me, and I'm so thankful you took a chance on me, I can't begin to explain how proud I am of you, how much I've seen you grown since you were a student."
— Adrianne Romanov
It was dawn when Aurelia Mal'veah became knighted, by the Masters of the Dantooine Jedi Enclave and in front of so many Friends and her Master Adrianne. When the Ceremony just was over, Sith of the Disciples of Ragnos appeared to threaten the Life of Adrianne Romanov's former Master Bala. As the whole gathered Jedi, including Aren, ignited their Lightsaber to stop this Threat, Aren's former Master Adrianne ignited her Lightsaber and stabbed it in a sudden motion in the Back of Council Master Sha'ira. Using the confusion of the new Knight and all of the gathered Jedi, the Sith, including Adrianne, escaped from Dantooine and Aren, whom was supposed to celebrate with her former Master, fell in a hole of Shadows once more.
" It seems that everyone in my closer range, fall to the temptations of the Darkside. But i sense good in her, confusion yes and i am not really sure why she did it, but i vow, that Adrianne will find redemption and if it takes my last breath! "
— Aurelia Mal'veah
A fallen Jedi
- Ereen Sesslyn: "She told me, that you would feel pain, when you watch it, but also that it can give you strength to overcome the Darkness, when you know that your former Padawan has not given you up"
- Lady Astra: "Stop it! You don't know who I am and why I am here, you have no right to send me this information, if Aren wants to tell me anything she will have to face me"
- ― Aren's alter ego Ereen Sesslyn faces her former Master with a Holocron Record of the Events during Aren's Knighting
The young Jedi Knight wasn't pleased with the Situation and made her researches to find her former Master across the Galaxy. After a few days, her Remote was successful and revealed the whereabout of Adrianne Romanov on Dagobah. Surrounded by Sith Acolyte's and Masters, Aurelia stayed hidden in the shadows of the Planet to observe the Situation and to find the right time to face her former Master alone. As the time arrived to corner her former Master, a disguised woman, wearing a Dark Robe and a Life Mask, stepped out of the Shadows, holding a Holocron in her hands and shows the Newborn Sith a record of the Knighting, where she stabbed Master Sha'ira and after a long and agressive chat, found out that Adrianne Romanov now became Lady Astra, but is still caring about her former Padawan's conditions.
Without revealing whom she is, Aren retreated from Dagobah to Dantooine, to meditate about what had happened and feeling guilty that she has not revealed herself to Adrianne. Becoming moody and agitated, the Knight started her trainings of the Sub-Path she has chosen. As much she wanted to become a Sentinel Shadow, the knowledge that she had to hunt down Adrianne and probably ultimately killing her, had influence in her choice, not to follow this path.
"Look around, Adrianne. Look at yourself. What are you becoming? You were raised up so you could stand on mountains, love, protect others and empower them to do the same. Today you walk along cells, where many fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers and sisters were killed by the Sith for dedicating their life to ensuring others can experience life in its beauty."
— Shiro Belfire to Lady Astra
When some day, Aurelia's friend Shiro Belfire, a fellow Knight of the Dantooine Jedi Enclave, was missed in action (MiA), she was observing her former Master on Dagobah again. The Knight has followed the advise of Master Bala to be careful on Dagobah, but as her stubborn mind has told her not to stay away, she prepared herself. Half disguised and with the needed Equipment, the Jedi left Dantooine in her Starfighter, direction Dagobah. The Flight was enough time for her to consider the words of Master Bala and the few stops to get new fuel, even more to work on her equipment. After the entrance into the Dagobah System, the Sentinel used the same route as she did a few weeks ago, when she was searching for her former Master to find out more about her fall.
The planet was in it's usual fog and darkness crouching over the ground as the Jedi Knight landed her ship on the same Position, where it had been before. An awesome place for a "fast" retreat, covered by a lot of tree roots with only a narrow corridor through them. Small enough that even Aren had some trouble to get through it, but good enough to cover any fast abortion of her Mission..
A few days in the swamp to acclimatize with the swamp, she stayed in a hideout, not far away from the Ship, but out of the range of the Sith Base, the Sentinel used to program her Remote to Adrianne and packed it in her backpack when she was done. Using it directly, the floating hum of the Remote could have revealed her position for too curious beings. When everything was prepared, Aren moved on, seeking for Lady Adrianne and hiding from every other breathing species or being on this Planet. The Force, even though the dark side was strong at this place, helped the Sentinel to find Lady Adrianne.
Reminding the promise Aren has given to Master Bala, she kept hidden to make sure, that noone would be around. As in the following minutes Lady Adrianne started to move, the young Jedi Knight followed through the swamps. It was hard for Aren to follow Adrianne, as the Knight had to stay out of the range of other Dark Jedi and also of her Master, but mainly to make no noises which could reveal her position was the hardest of all tasks. At one point Adrianne entered a secret tunnel, halway placed in the water, covered by Stones, whilst the rest was more or less plain, the Sentinel knew that this way would lead into the depths of Dagobah and as she didn't want to risk to end up in the hands of a bunch of Disciples, Aren got out her remote, turned it on and let it follow her program to seek Adrianne, whilst she would seek a hideout and watch what the remote is showing her over the implemented camera. Fast the young Knight put up a Visor and watched what the remote revealed.
As Adrianne was approaching a Cell with a Prisoner in it, the Remote got into stealth mode, not stealting itself, but hiding within environment, whilst recording what happened there. Adrianne was trying to interrogate a Prisoner, that from the beginning was sure, but with the interferences, Aren couldn't find out whom the Prisoner would be, just as the swamp got less noisy she was able to hear the voices and knew suddenly, that it was Shiro, whom tried to help Adrianne out of her confusion, but made her angry with trying so.
After a while, Aren decided to get back to her ship and get as soon as possible to Naboo, where she could use a long distance communication without the danger to either get spotted, blocked or the message gets heared by DoR, which would make them aware of the approach and even harder to get Shiro out of Prison. The travel to Naboo was not that long, but Aren felt like it would have taken years, as her friend in the Hands of the Sith won't be safe, but also because the thoughts of her former Master interrogating him. When the Ship landed on Naboo, the Sentinel directly send a Communication to the Enclave, asking for Aid on Dagobah and sending the location of the Prison and a save landing spot to them, not far away from hers, but less hidden.
After taking up some new fuel, Aren returned to Dagobah, she knew that she would be the first there again and had to prepare the landing spot. Placing decoys and traps around, to cover a retreat, she was finally able to welcome her aid. Lady Nev'la and her Quarton Serenity, and Lady Adriannes former Master Bala approached in the landing zone and got guided by the Sentinel to the Entrance of the Prison.
Suddenly after the Jedi arrived at the Entrance to the Prison Cells, a group of Dark Jedi stepped out of it and took notice of the Rescue Team. After a longer negotiation, between the Jedi and the Sith and confronted with the evidences the Remote has made of the Prisoner, finally it seems like the Sith would allow them, to take Shiro out of the Prison and Lady Adrianne guided Master Bala inside. The Jedi outside, but also the Sith have been left behind and patience was needed to fill the time until Adrianne and Bala just came back. As the Sentinel expected, without Shiro. The Jedi teamed up, claimed once and for all to release Shiro from his prison to keep in peace, but every negotiation was pintless at this very moment and inevitable, they had to fight for the Prisoner. It took high effort and good teamplay for the Jedi, but finally they managed to throw back the Sith and were able to set Shiro free. Under heavy fire, the group fell back to their ships and were able to retreat back to Dantooine.
" I sense good in you and you won't kill me, but if you want to leave, you have to. Now shut your Saber down, Adrianne."
— Aurelia Mal'veah to Lady Astra
A few weeks later, Lady Astra and some others of her kind got spotted on Dantooine and the Jedi Knight stood in her way to make sure, Astra won't be able to leave the Planet. As Astra got also cornered by different Knights, she took Aurelia hostage, holding a Lightsaber next to the Knights throat. Aurelia offered herself to sacrifice, sensing that her former Master won't be able to kill her as the poison of the Dark Side has not yet taken over her completely and was right, as the Sith shuts down the Lightsaber, turned Aurelia around and whispered something, just meant to be heard by the Jedi Knight. To escape, the Sith threw a Force Lightning against her former Apprentice, which Aurelia was able to deflect, whilst a second one, she tried to absorb, has nearly taken her unconscious and Astra was able to escape. On that day, the Knight decided to develop more training of Tutamanis before facing her former Master again.
Becoming a Mentor
- Aren: "You know, we have talked about it earlier and though i have offered myself to become your mentor a little blatantly, it was because i sensed your potential. I am sure you'll be a great Padawan to whichever mentor you choose and that is, why i will ask you again from my side, if you have had enough thoughts about it and would like to become my Padawan, knowing that you'd be the first one and that i'm still young as a Knight?"
- Noel Reynard: "I understand and I would be honoured to be your Padawan, Master."
- ― Noel accepted the request for becoming Arens Padawan
The young Knight has learned to know a young Amaran, whom was Student at the Enclave already, called Noel Reynard and immediately noticed his potential. After just a few days, the young woman felt that he could become a possible candidate for becoming her first Padawan. In the warm sun of Noon, they stood
together nearby the Jedi Statue on Dantooines fields, when Noel mentioned that he'd feel honored by her Request and after telling him that she still is young as a Knight, the young woman repeated her request to him, which he luckily accepted.
During their Training Aurelia and Noel visited many worlds, but also stayed on Dantooine for studies. As the young Jedi Knight felt a little overwhelmed with the responsibility she had, she seeked assistance from her friends and the older Members of the Order. Suddenly she started to be scared again, scared to fail her Padawan learner, but eventually she surpassed her fear through the progress her Padawan made. He was eager, talented, very curious and very shy, also towards his Master. Eventually Noel opened for the young Knight and both of them grew together through missions and studies and Aurelia grew as a teacher.
A Dangerous Game
- Noel Raynard: "I'll get to the bottom of this Master, you have my word.."
- Aren: "You are smart, eager and strong! I know you do your best. Be careful."
- ― Noel interogates his Master
When Aren entered the crystal cave of Dantooine, she found a Person she just had met a day ago, kneeling on the ground. When she closed in to talk to the young woman, she could feel a disturbance in the force and suddenly the young woman gasp for air and was holding her throat. As much as Aren did want to help the woman, the moment she stepped closer she could clearly hear how the neck of the woman was broken by force. Immediately searching the area after she was sure the woman was dead, she didn't find anybody but a Student closed in, finding the Knight leaning over the Murderedbody.
Interrogated by the approaching council Members Thot and Neren, the Jedi Knight wasn't able to say what happened, nor what was going on. Having the idea she got framed, she decided to put herself into a cell, so the investigations could happen without any supicious act of herself by the civilian authorities as the victim was a civilian herself. Getting stripped of her ranks and expelled of the order for judgement, her Padawan Noel started to investigate this case himself to prove his Master innocent.
Aurelia became impatient since she hadn't heard of anyone for a couple of days. One morning she woke up and her cell was opened, slowly she walked out but found none of the Guards around. Getting the suspicion of being framed again, she decided to join the investigations and contacted an old friend and Member of her Ghôsh. Instructing her that he'd notify her Padawan since she found a lead to Nar Shaddaa, she left off for it.
On Nar Shadda it wasn't too easy to find tracks of whom she was seeking out. But she had her sources still up and her target made mistakes, she wasn't hiding herself well, instead she was just openly moving around and the idea Aren already had became true, an older enemy of the Jedi Knight. Just when Aurelia was about to strike her Padawan appeared and forced his Master to react too son. Ryne Dwyer, the suspect, was not prepared for an attack, but used the situation to her advantage and took Aren unconscious. Helpless her life was in the hands of her Padawan who was finally able to solve the situation to get his Master out, sadly to the price of Ryne's freedom, but with enough proof of the innocence of his Master.
A new Jedi Master
"Master Aren, you're not like most Jedi. From the first day I became your Padawan, a lot has changed about you. Your demeanor, skill, and experience among these. Yet it is not these changes that I will remember, but rather the path we took to get there. From the moment at the statue, till this very day and moment. It is your attitude of encouragement and positivity that will see everyone through their dark times."
— Noel to his former Master during her Ceremony of Masterhood

Personality and traits
"You gave me confidence that i am not that worst case which could happen to you, but instead being and feeling like a teacher. I hope through all the time that i have treated you with all of my respect and apologize for whenever you noticed, that i am still a youngling in this job"
— Aren during the Knighting Ceremony of Noel
In her childhood, she seemed to be fearless about people, creatures or anything else. Loving the danger of height, Aren was seen on top of buildings walking around its roofs edges countless of times when she was but a little girl. Throughout her entire life she easily formed bonds with her comrads, even if they were considered higher in ranks or lower. It was said that her fellow Padawans were quickly doing the same things than Aren, but others disliked her intensely. She was reagrded as a natural leader but denying it, well known for having a high potential in using the force, being a quick learner, but also for being lazy to stall that knowledge, as well as for being generous, kind and empathic. To her superiors and people whom let Aren know about disliking her, she was often fiery and defiant which often led to problems during her first Padawanship.
The loss of her first Master has left many marks on her, both physical and mental. She forsook the Jedi and the company of everyone she knew, wandering across the Outer Rim and eventually made home on Nar Shadda. Living a simple and secluded life for almost 2 years, people started to seek her for guidance, help or chattings again. It was quick that Aren had become the head of a resistance group against local crime lords who was able to captured the Force Sensitive and enslaved her by challenging her good soul. Eventually during the escape Aurelia came into contact with the dark side of the force and ultimately killed her tormentors unarmed with her knowledge of the force. It made her learn that one has to embrace the dark side of the force, to make an ultimate decision, before actually turning, so her finding was different from the stories the Jedi Masters were telling her.
After joining the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine, Aren quickly bonded with several Students, Padawans and Knights. Leaving the path of a loner, she finally decided to dedicate her life to the Light Side of the force and to wipe out injustace, intolerance and any threats to harm the defenseless, which she knew she only was able to, by joining the Jedi Order again. During the second phase of her Training, Aren was more than talented and eager to soak in more and more knowledge in a short amount of time, finally dedicating her whole concentration and commitment to her Jedi training and eventually became a great Jedi Knight and later a Master, not without keeping her defiant and fierce nature.
Powers and Abilities
"Once you understand the nature of energy itself and the impact at your body from it, but also are able to channel the force as your shield and your Body to ground it, you could basically absorb any kind of energy. Which isn't realistic, but you could. That said, it sounds easier than it really is and talking about, is less painful at least."
— Aren after developing Tutaminis training
Aren is well trained in using the common Force Techniques for Jedi Knights since her childhood and developed the training for Sentinels about Force Concealment and Force stealth to a Master level. Whilst with Force Concealmeant, Aren is able to hide her Physical Presence inside Shadows against non-Force Sensitive beings completely and to Force Sensitives for a short amount of time with Force Stealth she is able to surpress her force alignement and sensitivity completely. She developed and mastered the techniques of Force deflection, Force Immunity, Tapas and yet became an expert in usingTutaminis
Since the Death of Aneuryn Bey, Aren often wields two Lightsabers. Her own got created with a very rare Amathyst colored Pontite Crystal of the Adega system, through which she shares a bond amongst herself, her weapon and the force. It gives off a weak force signature that can be sensed by any Jedi. Sometimes the Jedi Master wields the Lightsaber of her former Master as well, created with a yellow colored Sigil Crystal. During her Training Aurelia has become a more powerful Lightsaber user, prefering and becoming an expert in Form VII Juyo/Vaapad and Niman/Jar'kai as her Main Combat Techniques, if wielding one or two sabers. She has advanced knowledge of Form II Makashi more related to the defensive Parts to save some endurance during a longer fight. [IV Ataru] and Form V Shien/Djem_So specialised on Blaster deflection on an intermediate level. Aren combines parts of every Style she learned during her fights, depending on Situations, but always intuitivly.
The young Jedi Knight has knowledge about Dun Möch and Inverse Dun Möch, which she used at times herself. When Aurelia senses an advantage in its usage, she develops Tràkata . She is also known to use her beauty and Force powers to seduce people into giving away information.
She mastered the technique to sense Echoes within the force, which makes the Sentinel a nearly perfect Tracker for people whom needed to be searched. At the Beginning of her second time as Padawan, she learned Breath Control from Lady Golds'Hark, a Miralukan.
During the time on Nar Shaddaa, Aren has learned more about Technology, as it kept her busy, but also helped her to survive. Her first work was to create a repulsor driven Remote, which had several possible applications. She was arming it with a laser that could both repair other droids and damage enemies. Linked with a Visor she created as well, it's also able to send a live stream of what it is looking at. The Program of the Remote also allow Aren, to use it as Seeker for persons, or possible ways into a Place. It's able to disable simple security Systems, and has a light shield to survive a single Blaster Bolt. She also has created several systems, learned to hack and encrypt.
