Towards the end of 14 ABY, the New Jedi Order suffered tremendous losses in their battle with the Dark Jedi cult, the 'Disciples of Ragnos'. Even though the cult was defeated, and Marka Ragnos never returned to the mortal world, this was still a loss on the Jedi side. A young man named Jaden Korr was a very promising student at the Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4, and later rose to the rank of Jedi Knight. But the pull of the Dark Side led him to slay his fellow Jedi in his bid to gain more power. After he cut through quite literally everyone on Korriban in the final battle against the DoR, he defeated his old Master Kyle Katarn, took Ragnos' Scepter and fled the planet, taking command of the rest of the Imperial Remnant and survivors of the DoR cult. After that, nobody knew where the Dark Jedi went, or what he planned on doing... Kyle Katarn left the Academy to search for his lost student, and hasn't been heard from for two years.
Now, the year is 16 ABY. After the losses suffered at Korriban, Luke Skywalker and two surviving Jedi Masters decided to bring in one last batch of new force-sensitive students. It's surprising that nobody attacked while the Jedi were more or less beaten - but Skywalker couldn't argue with that. With the arrival of the new students, hope can be restored to the galaxy once again. But will these new Jedi survive? Can they remain on the path of the Light during this struggle to bring the New Jedi Order back to full strength?
...Our story begins on a New Republic shuttle bound for Yavin 4.
"Attention, passengers. We will be entering the atmosphere of the moon shortly, which means there will be little turbulence. It should be nothing to worry about, but strapping yourselves in is advisable. You'll be at the Praxeum within at least ten minutes." The pilot announced over the intercom.
Space travel was a very exciting new experience for one of the passengers. A cheerful looking girl with shoulder-length red hair and blue eyes had been staring out the window the whole time, silent with a slight smile... The infinite sea of stars looked magnificent. As the jungle moon came into view, Vexis Zaluna's eyes shifted to see it. Down there in that mix of mist and jungle was the Jedi Academy, where the surviving members of the New Jedi Order remained. Soon, she would become a Jedi. It didn't quite give her the idea that she'd live a free life, but because of Kyle she was willing to at least try. For someone who'd never fought or had responsibility before in their life, 'Vex' wasn't freaking out as much as she could be.
In one of the rear passenger seats of the shuttle, a young man tapped his foot impatiently. Kreidan Lozarios, who seemed very eager to get down there, start his training and go interfere in some bad guys' plans. Eagerness to learn wasn't frowned upon, but eagerness to go out into the world and fight? Perhaps one of the Jedi Masters would have to deal with that strange mentality before it became a problem. "Is anyone else hyped for this? We're all gonna become Jedi, can you believe it? Never thought my life would take a turn like this... Us lot are going to be the elite after our training." He said to nobody-in-particular, as if to just pep up the other students.
