Event: Battle of Zaloriis

Profile Battle of Zaloriis

The Battle of Zaloriis was a skirmish between Imperial forces and survivors of the Jedi Order in 19 BBY, shortly after the dissolution of the Galactic Republic and the subsequent foundation of the Galactic Empire.

Prelude
Following the execution of Order 66, a number of Jedi gathered in a desert cave on the planet Zaloriis. They had been invited there by Jedi Knight Nillanthir Zerati to discuss their future and that of the Jedi Order. However, unbeknownst to them, Aoshi, a former friend of Zerati’s and now an Imperial commander, had tracked them to the cave. He had brought along a contingent of clone troopers with the intention of eliminating the Jedi and was approaching fast, bringing an abrupt end to the gathering.

Skirmish At the Cave
Sensing the commander’s presence, Nillanthir instructed the other Jedi to leave, not wanting them to risk their lives and the future of the Jedi Order. As he knew Aoshi and the threat he posed better than anyone, he would stand the best chance of dealing with him. The others reluctantly agreed, but realizing the Imperials would be all over Nillanthir soon, Jedi Knights Vhiran Ashukahwa and Bultar Swan decided to aid their friend. They attacked the stormtroopers gathering around the cave from their Lancet interceptor, taking down numerous of the Imperial forces and causing massive chaos and confusion in their ranks before taking off.

As the other Jedi left the planet, Nillanthir faced off with the clone troopers invading the cave. Using hit-and-run attacks and the cave’s environments, Zerati brought down scores of enemies and halted their advance. Soon, however, Aoshi himself appeared and moved the troopers aside to deal with Nillanthir.

Final Stand
With the troopers retreating, the two former friends were the only combatants remaining. As they stood face to face, Aoshi explained he had turned against the Jedi, because he believed them, and Nillanthir in particular, to be traitors who had to be brought down. Nillanthir attempted to convince him that this was a lie spread by their true enemies: the Empire and the Sith. Aoshi would hear nothing of it, however, and a fierce battle between the two ensued. Moving and fighting lightning fast, the warriors appeared to be equally matched for most of the battle. Eventually, though, it was Nillanthir who got the upper hand. With a sudden burst of energy, he managed to cut Aoshi down, but not before he himself sustained a wound severe enough to make him pass out.

Aftermath
After coming to, Nillanthir, saddened about having to kill his old friend, gave Aoshi a proper burial and paid his respects to the fallen warrior. Zerati then returned to the cave to hide and wait for the time to fight the Empire.

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
