398.10 // New Grandmaster’s Address

Dear members of the Jedi Order,

I would like to thank my fellow High Councillors for bestowing the honour upon me of Grandmaster. It is a duty I take with the most humble of gratitudes. However, I would like to take this moment to speak plainly to you all, so that you may understand the motivations of what is to come.

Recently, Grandmaster Don’roq and myself received a letter from the Galactic Republic’s Chief of State, Lammee Ranack. In it, she expressed a clear desire to work more closely with the Jedi Order in the hopes of building a stronger relationship. Though she did not directly say it, the language implied that this stronger relationship can only mean one thing: alliance.

Near-unanimously, the Jedi High Council has decided that it will entertain talks to renegotiate our previous alliance with the Jedi Order, one that ended centuries ago.

However, let it be known that the High Council is well aware of the past and does not make this decision lightly. The Republic is a temperamental thing, but it is showing worrying signs of corruption that we feel, as Jedi, we are best poised to deal with. Working closely with the Chief of State, we want to negotiate our alliance so that the Jedi may work more effectively in tackling the inner rot of this galactic government, wherever it may be found and on whatever level.

We must never forget our duty to life. It is my belief that, so long as we allow this rot to occur in the institutions of the Republic, we debase ourselves and our principles. Therefore, I would ask every member of the Order in a position to do so to grow a relationship with one of the Republic’s organisations, those which I will list below.

Let it be understood that we are not in an alliance with them yet, but it is the Jedi Order’s desire to do so. It is imperative that we do not make our relationship with them more precarious. When we can operate from within, the Jedi Order may begin assessing the levels of corruption – and how to best deal with them.

The following institutions I recommend that Jedi spend time working with.

  • G.R.I.D – Galactic Republic Intelligence Division, the intelligence / spy network of the Republic. The Jedi Order has a long history of work with them.
  • P.S.F – Planetary Security Forces, local police work usually ran by local governments, but some in the core are Republic-funded.
  • Senate Investigation Unit – An independent judicial body that investigates senatorial misconduct or misdemeanours.
  • Supreme Court – The Republic’s highest judicial authority.
  • Galactic Republic Military – The GRM is comprised of the GRSA, the Grand Republic Service Army, and the GRSN, the Grand Republic Service Navy.

May the Force be with us on this crucial task,
– Grandmaster Coron Audax
