JEDI HoloNet

383.21 // A dire situation in dire times

Reports, received from the planet of Berris, state that a child has gone missing. The information gathered by both the local Law Enforcement and the media are rather disturbing.
This time, the abductor posing as a Jedi when refused access to the child by the parents. Broke-in, threatening the parents’ lives before forcibly removing the child.

While the local citizens of the small city on the surface of Berris struggle to face reality; the fact remains, young Doroelsa Cobbrec was abducted from her own home, in front of her very own parents. Her mother, Liadean Cobbrec, was shocked and utterly desperate, as evident from her statement to local media:

It is terrible! Our little Elsa was taken away under the threat of rifles. We were terrified for our own lives, as well as hers. I cannot dare to imagine what will happen to my little girl.

In addition, one of the officers stationed in the area and involved in the aftermath is in critical condition. The media was unable get a statement from security forces, but it is believed he got injured in an attempt to stop the abductor. Law enforcement did however make it clear that the officer’s life is stable.

However, perhaps more shockingly, unlike in previous instances the Jedi weren’t even on the planet, arriving only after young Doroelsa was taken and it was too late for them to assist.

383.18 // Incom Corporation Reveals Major Update to Famous Star Fighter

News from the Fresia based Incom Corporation, Executive Nei Ving in an elaborate reveal, unveiled the first major update to the famous X-Wing platform in several decades.

“Today is a special day, we bring a new design to the famous ship that has repeatedly saved the Galaxy numerous times.”

The press conference began with a fly over from the new model, the T-90a. The ship, rumored to have been in planning and construction for decades, is expected to be contracted to the Republic, though no formal announcements have been announced by the Republic Navy.

The ship boasts numerous improvements over the latest XJ-series X-Wings, including a sleek new design and profile. Along with the new looks, the ship also includes some of the most advance avionics that Incom has placed into any space craft.

The famous ship racer, Madlyn Varss also revealed that she will be using the T-90 in the upcoming Corellian Prix, where she will be seeking her third victory in a row. A civilian model of the T-90 is expected to be released along side the T-90a.

After the press conference, Incom’s stock jumped up a massive 35 points in the stock market.

383.18 // BREAKING NEWS: Missing Children linked as Senate hosts late night sitting.

The Holonews can today officially confirm that the missing children were indeed all force sensitive and due to be collected by the Jedi Order.

In response to this breaking news, the Senate held an emergency session late last night and demanded to hear from the Order.

Jedi Knight Levi Astra, a branch ambassador for the Order was expected to attend and respond officially on behalf on the Order, but at the last moment was replaced by Jedi Knight Gifford Rav’i. Perhaps an indicative sign of the chaos the Order finds itself in.

A snippet of Master Rav’i address can be found below

Senators, I would like now to appeal directly to those that have lost their children.

I know these words bring you no comfort. They will not stop the sleepless nights. It will not serve to fill the inescapable void left behind. It will not repair your shattered trust with the Order, but, if these words are to serve any purpose, then I hope it is to simply inform that whilst we cannot possibly understand your loss, believe that we share in it.

The Jedi Order adopts all those that join it. We will not rest until our lost brothers and sisters, your beloved sons and daughters, are cradled safely in both our arms once more.

Whilst a vote of no confidence in the Jedi Order was floated by some backbench senators, it was swiftly condemned by the rest of Senate. The Senate clearly has faith in the Order and GRID, however unless some progress is made, how long will the galaxy retain that faith?

383.14 // High Council Internal Statement: Recent Events

Padawans, Knights and Masters of the Jedi Order.

I trust that you are all aware of the situation in which the Order finds itself in.

We have received news that the Holonews has received leaked GRID documents and tomorrow will run a story officially confirming a link between the 4 missing children stating

  1. That they were all indeed force sensitive.
  2. They were due for collection by the Order.

We anticipate reaction to this from the Galaxy to one of upset and anger. I ask that those Jedi on assignment to take extra precaution when facing potentially emotive situations with civilians in the Galaxy. If asked about the the children, please refer them to the forth coming official statement of the Order.

It is also with grave news, that I must inform you that there have been several other children taken. However their parents have decided to entrust the Order with the investigation and have therefor not gone public.

In order to facilitate and centralise the operation into finding the children, we have decided to appoint Rannon Praxeum as the lead branch investigating into this matter. Any information should be reported to the their Knight body. The rest of the Orders facilities and enclaves will continue to assist to the best of their abilities.

A public statement will be forth coming from Order in the coming days.

I would ask that your final thoughts on this message turn to the children who are currently lost to us and the critical mission ahead of us to bring them home safely.

May the force be with you

383.12 // Unexplained delay on Roytha as another child is reported missing.

A sight that we should never become desensitised to. Two parents behind a long table, surrounded by local security forces, flashing bulbs of holocameras whilst cradling a picture of their now missing child.

Today Rigou and Verioti Gring told of the hollow feeling they have felt since their son was taken from them, before pleading with whoever took their son to return him home to them. Not much is known as to the circumstances around their son Cohah, but it was several days before they realised he was taken.

It was noted that there was a Jedi Knight present on Roytha at the briefing vetting questions from the press. Allowing no questions on why there was such a significant delay before Cohah was reported missing.

The Jedi Knight, from Ossus also refused to comment on behalf of the Order.

The Core, the Inner Rim and now the Expansion Region have all been affected in the last cycle with cases of missing children.

What do they have in common? Rumors are circling that all were force sensitive, however no public information has been released confirming this.

What is most certain is all have fallen foul of the most unforgivable crime.
