Ki Drayson was conceived fifty four years before the Clone Wars by his parents Jedi Knight Valin Drayson and Jedi Knight Sylvn
Drayson. On the planet of Corellia at the family estate, this was the birth place of several Jedi and non Jedi family members
throughout the years. Like all family members before him who showed promise in using the force, he was taught in a few ways of
the Jedi Order until their day of coming of age when they were asked if they wanted to join the Jedi order or not. If they did
wish to join the order then they were sent to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. If not, they were taught at home on certain subjects
then sent to any school across the galaxy of their choice once fourteen. But under an anagram of their true name so that they
may remain safe until they could handle their own.|
Ki didn't want to become a Jedi at all even though it was important for him to follow in the footsteps of his family and those in his family before him to become part of the heritage of being a Corellian Jedi. His Uncle Jedi Master Quintan Drayson even came back to the family estate to talk with Ki about his decision on not joining the order but with no success. For Ki told him "I must find my own path. If I don't then I'm selling myself short." So with that being said he went to the Mrlsst Academy in the Tapani Sector under the name of Kody Sarin.
Life on Mrlsst was a complete one eighty on what he was use to on Corellia. Instead of living in normal buildings one found on Corellia one lived in structures built into the green stalked plants that could be found as far as one could see; giving a feeling of being one with nature almost at all time. Within his first year Kody learned several new languages, about different cultures, and many other subjects. But that all changed when his Uncle Quintan came to Mrlsst to inform him that his Mother and Father were murdered by some unknown party. The news of hearing that his parents were murdered hit him like a herd of bantha. He asked his Uncle if anyone was investigating their deaths, but Quintan's answer was no.
However, even in the darkest hour of Kody's life Quintan asked him again if he would join the Jedi Order. But Kody said nothing in return for a few minutes save for an icy stare that seemed to pierce right through Quintan's skull. Then "What do you think! Uncle! Huhhhh." Kody said while clenching his fist "And don't say control my emotions for it will lead me down the dark path if I don't. Thanks for telling me about my parents' deaths, but just get the frill out of here will you." He yelled as he punched his Uncle in the face who didn't even try to block Kody's blow. Without anger in his voice Quintan responded "As you wish Ki. I understand and if you wish to talk to me you know how to contact me," then he walked away.
Several days passed, and as each went by Kody's mood just got darker and darker until he got the brash idea of finding his parents' murderer or murderers himself. So, using what knowledge his father taught him on the construction of lightsabre and giving him just enough understanding to make him a little dangerous. He constructed himself a lightsabre; actually a lightfoil. Sure, it wasn't as strong as a lightsabre, but it was just as deadly. With the teachings his Mother and Father it made him even more so. Over the next year he followed the trail of his parents finding out leads here and there until he found what he was looking for. It was a minor crime boss by the name of Bruth Mak using the planet Ziost as his base of operations.
Kody Sarin headed to Ziost with darkness in his soul to kill the one who murdered his parents. However, all was not as it seamed as he broke into Mak's wretched hive of villainy, but alas, it was all an elaborate trap.
"Well, well, well… what do we have here? Kody Sarin, or should I wager a member of the Drayson clan" a figure in the shadows spoke, then laughed malignantly as several figures came out of the shadows, some brandishing blasters while others ignited their crimson lightsabres.
"Bruth, come out!!" Kody bellowed as he ignited his lightfoil.
"Ahhhh you crafted your own sabre then. Let's see what you can do… get him my minions" the figure ordered causing his followers with sabres to rush at Kody while the others took aim.
Over the next few minutes a bloody battle ensued with Kody outnumbered ten to one. But the lessons his parents taught him kept him on course as he killed one after another of Bruth's minions making him fall deeper into the sweet nectar of darkness. As he fought he could feel his body surge with dark energy that consumed him from every direction until at last, he and Bruth Mak remained, the sole figure he still hadn't seen as yet.
"You've done well Kody. I sense you have danced further into the sweet allure of darkness as well of ridding me of the rest of the worthless souls that survived the murder of your parents." Bruth finished with an evil laugh while a crimson blade ignited showing instead a human female with snow white hair.
"You're not Bruth!! Where is he?" Kody yelled as he strode forward towards his intended target. As he did she pulled something from around her throat.
"Is that better child?" She howled in a now all too clear feminine tone. "You'll make an excellent Sith apprentice if you survive this." She cast off her cloak revealing her well toned, supple form clad in a crimson bodysuit.
"Never!!" Kody yelled as he rushed forward striking at the women with his lightfoil. But alas, she blocked his blows with ease. Over the next few minutes she played with him like a hunter and her prey, until, with one final blow, she sheared his lightfoil in two slamming Kody to the ground, lightsabre mere millimeters from his throat.
"You can either serve me or die!! Which is it?" She asked as her eyes narrowed and an evil grin crept across her face.
"I take death." Kody stated without a second thought.
"So be it!" she said, frustration in her voice. That was the last thing Kody remembered along with sudden searing pain and inky darkness.
* * *
Elsewhere a lone figure sat in a meditative state searching for his lost nephew through the ebbs of the force. But what he found was the boy he once thought he knew being consumed and using the bitter sweet darkness of the force. He tried to call out to the boy through the force but the darkness shielded him from his efforts. Every moment the boy killed a being it seemed to move in slow motion ever causing more pain to him as he watched helplessly till his nephew suddenly disappeared from the force causing the figure to jolt out of his state. Even though a Jedi must control his emotions a tear started to shed as he spoke to himself "I failed you Ki.... I will make it right.... I will make it right."
* * *
Years later, but what seemed like mere moments to Kody, an icy cold feeling raced across his body followed by what felt like a warm summer day on Corellia.
"That's it… take a breath… slowly now. You've just been released from your carbonite prison" a being, female by the sound of it, said to Kody as his deep breath tore at his lungs.
"What? Where am I?" Kody asked as he slowly opened his eyes, which gave him no relief - complete darkness. "Why can't I see? Why does it hurt to breath?"
"You were found frozen in carbonite on a freighter that crashed into the Roche Asteroid Field due to a faulty hyperdrive. The miners that found you brought you here so that we could give you medical attention here on New Holstice" the being, clearly female, recanted. "First off, what's your name?"
"Kody Sarin" he stated. Over the next several days he had his eyesight restored through cybernetic replacement as his real eyes never recovered from the carbonite freeze - it was just too long.
For fifty four years he had been out of touch with the rest of the galaxy and much had changed. The Jedi Order was no more, the Republic was now the Galactic Empire and he had a strange feeling that there was someone out there he needed to find.
He knew what had to be done: find out about his past, his future and that strange someone. But before he left New Holstice for parts unknown he added three new names of the fallen Jedi on the wings of memory moths: Valin Drayson, Sylvn Drayson and that of his Uncle, Quintan Drayson into the memorial.
A year of searching brought him to an area of space that, he hoped, promised to shed some light on the mysterious 'someone' he felt all those years before back on Holstice.
As he traveled to the new area he managed to run into a large group of organized slavers. He fought well to escape, but was captured anyway. He remained in the hold of the slavers' ship until they reached another planet. Once there he was sold with all the others aboard to a large black ship he had never seen before. The ship's captain and first mate conducted that exchange and off they went again.
During the long hyperspace journey the captain and first mate released everyone and told them that they were here to recruit all beings for an important benefactor. Kody, along with the rest of the slaves were given freedom on a safe planet or the option to join the group. As an incentive, the slave collars were removed.
During the encounter the First Mate kept looking at Kody as if she knew him somehow. This was confirmed when she started giving out Imperial credits to those that did not join - there were not many - and then came to Kody. "Somehow, I know you. The name you gave is not the one I know you by and you look a bit different. Must be the hair."
~ This has to be my first real lead on the stranger I felt those many years ago. I'll let her do the talking and see where it leads. ~ Kody sat up and looked at the female, smiled slightly, and said, "Really now? Where and when was this?"

Theed Arms S5 Heavy Blaster Pistol
Skill: Blaster: Heavy Blaster Pistol
Cost: Unavailable, not made or sold anymore
Notes: Pure Rylith Power Cell (+3D+2 damage). The S-5 heavy blaster pistol was a versatile weapon with a heavy wooden gripstock and twin scopes for sighting and rangefinding. Unlike most handheld blaster weapons, the S-5 fired green blaster bolts, similar to the Model Q2 hold-out blaster pistol. The S-5 also featured a dart launcher underneath the main barrel, able to fire either an anesthetic microdart, a sting charge, or a grappling hook tip. The latter was used in conjunction with a liquid-cable shooter attachment; a quick customization that turned the S-5 pistol into a durable ascension gun (as an ascension gun, the S-5's liquid-cable could hold up to 500 kilograms). The cable reservoir held enough liquid to form twenty meters of cable, and the spike launcher itself cost around 50 Republic Credits around the time of the Invasion of Naboo.
