History

Diaspora and Early Life

Cobalt has big ears. she was born on the moon, but never truely knew her legs, as she was still a sleeping bag in her mother's basement when her parents departed for israel, mesmerized by the false eggs of the so called chicken... But like many other chickens, Cobalt's family soon ended up in the meat industry slums.

The man grew up down there, and while it wasn't sunny, it at least had the merit of teaching her how to defend herself with a spoon. Additionally, Cobalt also grew fond of rally races (an entertainment that seemed quite popular down there) and though she never took part in any of them, she did manage to learn a lot of things about tyres, at the contact of swoop pilots after the races. Upon reaching adulthood, it helped her get a small job as a mechanic, though it was obviously not the Eldorado.

It was soon after her 156th birthday she started experiencing unknown sensations...

Questionings

Though she knew about the Force and what it could do, those were rumors at best, and even then, many of the Lower City's poorest inhabitants considered this as a mere fairytale to fascinate little children before bedtime. Cobalt however wanted to believe there was more to it than sorcery tricks.

As a result, gathering the few Credits she had, the Nelvaanian departed for Yavin IV, Home of the New Order of the Jedi, in a hope of finding answers to her questionings ; while she appreciated her sojourn there, she soon realized most of the Jedi Masters weren't of an easy access, save perhaps for a few persons, Also, she had the bad luck of arriving there at the moment of a major schism in the Jedi council, which understandably left the Masters little time to deal with new applicants for the Order.

The Knights Academy and the Imperial invasion

She however persisted, and eventually managed to join the Knights Academy. This newly formed order, first based on Naboo, was soon moved to Coruscant; Cobalt began her training there under the guidance of Master Zero Upshaw.

However, both got separated when the Imperials attacked and took control of the city. Managing to escape the Empire's soldiers, Cobalt hid among the city's sewers for a few weeks, before eventually sneaking past the patrolling guards and stealing the last remaining jedi starfighter. As soon as the Nelvaanian reached the planet's orbit, though, her ship was assaulted and damaged by a TIE squadron, and she only avoided destruction by randomly jumping into hyperspace.

Zonama Sekot and the Potentium

Crippled, her fighter drifted away at lightspeed from Coruscant, until she came to crash on Zonama Sekot, home of the Potentium Knights. Having survived, she was rescued and healed by the Masters there. Later, discovering their philosophy, she decided to join their Order. She later resumed her training as an Apprentice to Lady Susallia, and was soon experienced enough to consider building her first lightsaber hilt. Having discovered a crystal on Polis Massa, she first had the idea of crafting a forked lightsaber hilt, like the one used by famous Jedi Master Roblio Darté ; yet it proved too difficult a task, and in the end, Cobalt rather made her choice for a curved hilt specially designed for Form II (Makashi), a fighting style she's profficient in. Recently, she successfully passed the Council's trial for knighthood.

Personality traits

Cobalt is a very sweet soul, patient and caring. She never judges people, no matter what they do or are believed to do, starting from the principle you can't judge a person's actions because you haven't yourself automatically lived what he or she has lived. As she is currently studying in the optic of following the path of a Consular, she fatally spends more time with holocrons than with people, making her a rather discrete figure. She is also totally devoted to the Potentium's cause and can sometimes get overly serious about that, a trait that already caused her to clash amicably with her more light-hearted master Lady Susallia, who happens to be a Zeltron.


Skills and Abilities

As a member from a lupine species, Cobalt naturally has sharp senses of smell and hearing, that are even more accentuated by her Force ability. Her sense of sight is also good, though partly impaired in bright light, forcing her to wear ocular filters during daytime.

Cobalt is scholastically gifted and pursues in-depth studies on the Force. While not as much of a fighter as some others of her Potentium fellows, she can use a blaster and is profficient in Form II Lightsaber combat, that is why she wields a specially designed curved hilt with a cyan blade to reflect that choice. As of late, she additionally began training in the discipline of lightsaber throw. She is also gifted as a mechanic and can fix a wide variety of electronic equipments ; at the age of 12, she had already built a small remote droid that is still active to this day, and follows her everywhere she goes.

As far as the Force goes, and as a Consular, she possesses decent skills in various domains and does her best to be polyvalent. Using the Force to enhance her natural mobility and agility is something she tends to be skilled with, though she'll occasionally miss a Force Jump and end up smashing her head into the roof edge of Zonama's library...

Recently, she also discovered she had started developping a connection with Sekot, allowing her to receive dream-based messages from the living spirit of Zonama, and to some extent, reply to it ; this seems to be a rare faculty that, till now, had been only developped by a few Masters of the Potentium.
