Prologue (One Year Ago)
Divatox ran to the Grand Hall in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant to see if her Master, Ensi-Ron Kenobi, had heard the news.  As her eyes scanned the crowd, she found him easily.  He was an average height Human male, with a full head of light brown hair and a well-trimmed brown beard.  However, once Divatox realized where he was looking, she knew he had heard the news: it was all over the vidscreens.  The Revanchist had just used a superweapon that was being called the Mass Shadow Generator to shatter the Mandalorian fleet at Malachor V.

Before Divatox could reach her master, she noticed a young Zabrak Jedi Knight approach him.  The Knight seemed worn both physically and emotionally.  When Master Kenobi noticed the Zabrak, he embraced him briefly before holding him by the shoulders at arm's length.  "Duqua, it's so good to have you back."

"I'm sorry Master Kenobi," Duqua said.  "I didn't know...I didn't know he was capable of that."

Master Kenobi let one of his hands fall, still keeping one hand on the Knight's shoulder in a comforting gesture.  "I don't think any of us did," Ensi-Ron conceded.

"I left as soon as I knew what he was planning," Duqua rushed to add.

"We know," Master Kenobi comforted.  "The whole Council knows."

Divatox kept her opinions to herself about both the Revanchist and his actions while she patiently waited for her master to finish his interaction.

Divatox vehemently disagreed with the Revanchist's choice of methods but she had nothing but respect for his utter brilliance and boldness in doing what he thought was right.

Ensi-Ron finally noticed Divatox, and waved her over.  When she approached, Master Kenobi made introductions.  "Divatox, this is Duqua Dar, a very capable Jedi Knight, and a good friend.  Duqua, this is my Padawan, Divatox."

Duqua seemed to perk up at Master Kenobi's compliment, his shoulders unslumping and his head raising up.  "Nice to meet you," he said as he held out his hand.

"My pleasure," Divatox said, smiling.  "I didn't realize Master Kenobi had friends."

She gave the older Jedi a wry smile.

"Ha, ha, very funny," Master Kenobi said in his dry, distinct Coruscanti accent.

"Oh, many Jedi look up to Master Kenobi," Duqua said, not understanding the joke in his current emotional state.

As the trio continued their small talk pleasantries, Divatox overheard an argument somewhere else in the Hall.  She turned slightly to see the source and saw her friend and fellow Padawan Kell Tarrid arguing with his master.  "I just don't see why it's a big deal." Kell said, clearly frustrated.

"Do you not understand the atrocity that has occurred?" His master asked.

"All I see is that the Revanchist has single-handedly ended the war," Kell replied, gesturing towards the vidscreens.

"Yes, but at what cost?" his master questioned.

"Who cares?" Kell contended.  "The people of the Republic are now safe."

Kell had often expressed romantic interest in Divatox.  His green Falleen skin and black top-knot hair were not unattractive.  And though Divatox knew that mentally, socially, and culturally Kell was the Human equivalent of 19 years old, the fact that he was physically 40 years old had always bothered her.  That and never knowing if he was using his pheromones to influence her.  Even now as he walked away from his master (his master shaking his head in frustration and disappointment), Kell winked at Divatox as he walked by her.  She felt a slight stirring, but nothing she couldn't handle.

"Wait!" Divatox called.  "We can resolve this!"

Divatox was known for her mediating skills.

Kell heard Divatox, and turned back around.  "Resolve what?  My argument with my master?  I don't really see how," he said, disbelievingly.

"I'm great at understanding and explaining others' perspectives," Divatox asserted, steepling her fingers with her arms hanging down and standing contrapposto.  She knew it was an unoffensive stance.

Kell smiled coyly, clearly taken in by Divatox's offer.  "And what if I don't want to resolve it?" he asked with an arched eyebrow.

"Gaining an understanding of another's perspective can make you more persuasive," explained Divatox.  "Don't you want people to understand your point of view?"

"No, I want them to agree with my point of view," Kell replied firmly.  "Besides, I think you've lost your chance any way," he added nodding his head to the spot where his master had been.  He was no longer there.  "Maybe next disagreement," Kell conceded and walked out of the hall.

Divatox made a face but conceded, internally, that she'd lost her opportunity.  She returned to Master Kenobi's side.
