JEDI HoloNet

430.22 // Jedi Knight Eli Tzineda

Greetings Residents,

Jedi do not choose an easy life. Many beings have attempted to walk the path of denying their baser instincts in favor of service to the Galaxy and to the Force. Many of those same beings have failed to complete their journeys. For some beings, the obstacle of said instincts may seem insurmountable. It is the Council’s pleasure to acknowledge their victory in the face of these odds.

By right of the Council, by Will of the Force, the following Jedi has been elevated to the rank of Jedi Knight:

  • Eli Tzineda

May the Force be with you all,
– The JEDI Council.

430.06 // Massacre on Tarabba Prime

A massacre on Tarabba Prime as forty-three men tried to stop the infamous leader of White Bantha, Salazar Haka, from escaping incarceration in a Republic-controlled prison.

“The walls and the floors were covered with blood like crumbs, body after body was left in the wake of Salazar Haka and his allies. Flickering corridor lights hid even more severed limbs in the dark shadows.”

Whilst this may sound like a description of a horror holo-movie, it’s not. On the night of 430.05, Salazar Haka, former leader of the infamous “White Bantha” organisation, and by means unknown, managed to escape the prison of Tarabba Prime. Fellow inmates and guards alike ultimately suffered, cut down in a bloody break-out that left dozens dead and far more wounded, the prison itself a scene of chaos and death.

The last prisoner escape from this facility prior to this was on 417.02, and the Republic devoted considerable funds to improving the security of the prison – though to less effect than was clearly hoped for, judging by the events of today – such that the prison was known as one of the most secure in the region.

This, however, did not stop Salazar.

Major Rako Syvar, Warden of RJA Tarabba Prime, had this to say:

“We mourn for all who’ve died doing their duty on this terrible, terrible day. I – I… I wish to not say anything more, but an investigation is currently ongoing.”

With the tightening of the facility’s security in recent years, the question has to be asked: how did this happen, and what will follow? The Republic will no doubt be concerned at the risk of further violence from the White Bantha, now that their leader is free. What will Haka do next, and who might suffer for it?

This is Haaru Mash, reporting live from from Tarabba Prime.

429.29 // Life Day Changes

Greetings Residents,

As Jedi, it is only natural that we celebrate Life, from which the Force stems. We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge growth and change as important and ubiquitous aspects of life. To that end, we use this time of celebration to commemorate those who have demonstrated this growth and move on to the next leg of their journeys within the Force.

By right of the Council, by Will of the Force, the following Jedi have been elevated to the rank of Jedi Knight:

  • AyyaGella
  • Donan Healof

Further, we welcome the newest addition to our Order and have high hopes for their aspirations as a Jedi Student. Please make welcome the following Initiate:

  • Zhu’shk

May the Force be with you and Happy Life Day,
– The JEDI Council.

429.03 // Rannon: Death of Councilor Din Khorta

Republic Senators and political figures from numerous worlds within the Mid Rim and Core Worlds have been travelling to Rannon’s capital city of Immarra to pay their respects to Din Khorta, a prominent Ithorian Councillor for Rannon’s planetary Government who was gunned down only a few rotations ago. The former Councillor for Haranae had been deeply involved in uncovering a plot to sabotage Rannon’s agricultural industry and, prior to his death, had held a special session of the Cooperative Government of Rannon involving both the Agricultural Union and Jedi Order.

Sections of the special sessions’ media coverage still remains closed for the public: however, a government aide close to the former council has told I.C.N that a vote was in fact held and passed with majority of the votes being in favour of terminating the trade contract between Rannon’s planetary government and the White Bantha Shipping Company.

The RSF, Rannon’s main branch of public security, has increased their presence in the region to accommodate the influx of well-wishers amidst a time of rising crime and violence. In spite of this, newly elected House Speaker, Councillor Elis’ta, has laid plans for a full remembrance ceremony and vigil.

A spokeswoman for the House Speaker’s office had this to say:

“Councillor Khorta was a man who dedicated his life to the eradication of crime in his home region of Haranae, setting a shining example of how not to give in to intimidation tactics by those who would have a puppet in public service. By not holding a ceremony to honour the life of this inspiring individual, we would surely sully and dishonour his memory. The Speaker is in talks with the RSF and Republic GRID to ensure public safety during this time of grief, and are expecting a full turnout in our planetary capital.”

There is speculation around the arrival of the former Councillor’s son, who in recent years was elected as Republic Senator for Ithor. If there is truth to this speculation, it will be of interest to all whether the Senator arrives as a representative of the Republic or as a grieving family member.

428.26 // Two New Promotions

Greetings, Residents,

The Jedi Council would like to offer their congratulations to Aren Kelpor and Minoda Darkrider, both of whom have served the Order with distinction in recent times, largely on their own initiative, and have therefore been elevated to the rank of Jedi Knight.

We wish them both the best for the future, and look forward to seeing them continue their service with the same excellence that marked their students years.
