Who Are You?

The door opens easily and makes little noise. Though Master Kenobi has forbidden students to visit the tower you find yourself walking up the old stone steps. You have your reasons.

The Force tingles in the air around you. In the shadowy light of your glowbar you can make out footprints in the dust. Someone has been here before you.
At the top of the stairs you hesitate. A nightbird cries out somewhere in the darkness. Light flickers from underneath the door before you. Can you hear whispering? Is someone in there now?
You consider turning around and going back to bed, but something tugs at you...
You open the door and step into the tower room. It's very cold...

And empty. Decaying furniture lies scattered around the floor. Tattered pages of some mouldy book flutter half-heartedly in the wind.
Your first sensation is relief - how silly you were to be worried. Nothing here can hurt you, unless you have allergies.
From the window you can see the main Temple compound. The other Jedi are probably sleeping now.

Slowly the hairs on the back of your neck begin to rise. You feel a presence in the room. You turn from the window but see no one. An oppressive air hangs upon this place. A great sadness fills your heart.

As you move towards the door it slowly swings closed, as if pushed by the breeze. The power in your glowbar flickers for a moment and then goes out.
Darkness.

Who are you?

More company? And another Dark Sider! If I didn't know better I would think the temple had fallen to the Sith.
I am Master Durnago, Tella Vorn. Prisoner of the Jedi...

I'm not a Dark Sider, or rather I was.

And how can you be a Master and be held by the Jedi? Aren't you a Jedi? What happened here? Why does Master kenobi forbid us from coming here?

Twlla notices the Jedi next to her. "So this has been were you were all today, Jedi! You missed the most hilarious removal of Kat's control chip, but that is a story for another time...."

Peace, Jedi. I want peace. Isn't that what you look for too? Isn't that what brought you here? Don't you seek a quiet place to focus on your memories and the Force without distraction... A place to relive the past, revisit moments with someone you loved free from the noises and voices that won't let you concentrate on what's most important.
I can help you, and maybe you can help me.

So many questions! I was a Jedi, a great Jedi. My understanding of the Force was unrivalled. But I disobeyed the Council and was imprisoned for my crimes... for my "arrogance."
You stand in what was my cell. A cell I might never leave...

And why does little Master Kenobi forbid you to come here? Because he does not trust you.

You are trying to lure us to the darkside, Master Kenobi trusts us with his life.

I defied the Council. I thought I was far enough from the main temple that I might have escaped their notice but I was wrong. I taught my padawan that the greatest source of power a Jedi could tap was love. I realised that the darkside was simply an inversion of the true path to power.
My padawan was killed. I was imprisoned and never released. I died in this very room.

Master Kenobi, obviously does not think you have bought into enough of the Jedi myth to be allowed to speak with me. He fears that you might still have an open mind when it comes to the Dogma of the Force... He seems to have been wrong in the case of the echani. She seems well brainwashed.

Perhaps we have a different idea of power. To you Sith it might mean control over the universe or other beings. To me it is being able to fully realize one's own potential...To be unafraid, honest, to be real.
To be true to one's own feeling of Love is part of that. Why do we lie to ourselves and pretend we don't love? I would rather be a false Jedi than an emotionless Force puppet.

How can I help you? I will listen to you with an open mind. I will not condemn you. I will not presume to preach to you about what a Jedi should or should not be.
In return, I would like you to help me break the curse that keeps me here.

Go now, and think about what I have said. I will be here waiting...forever.

The specter’s words infuriate her more than he knows. "Just because I trust Obi-Wan doesn't mean I'm brainwashed, it means I trust my family. And before you jump to conclusions about me maybe you should look a little more closely. If you do you may see that I'm not as brainwashed as you'd think."

Tella, do not let this spectre make you mad. It is what he wants, to turn you back to the Dark Side. Go now and meditate on what you have seen.
