Evant Taelyan (born 7 ABY) was a human male Dark Jedi born in the Corporate Sector on Etti IV. After a successful start to life as a career grav ball player and attaining his degree, he was recruited into the Dark Jedi Brotherhood by Xen'mordin Vismorsus who would take on the role of his Master at the age of 22. Now with the tools at his disposal to unlock his true potential, and the Dark Side as a true ally, he quickly began to see success in his career in both his Clan and the Dark Council.
He is currently serving as the Deputy Grand Master on the Dark Council as the right hand of the Grand Master.
Evant Taelyan was born on the hot and stormy capital of the Corporate Sector, Etti IV. His father was an engineer at Cybot Galactica, one of the largest droid manufacturing companies in the galaxy while his mother stayed at home to raise him and his younger twin sisters, Alma and Zoey.
Growing up in the middle class meant a good education and no financial trouble. The first years of his life were rather routine, with a growing boredom as he effortlessly excelled in his studies finding him looking for new ways to challenge himself and picking up the sport of grav ball recreationally as a youth. His time in sports allowed him to push his body, where he was able to achieve extraordinary feats that gave him success in all positions of the sport. As he started secondary school at the age of 14 it took just little time for him to shine enough to get an immediate nod as the team's center striker and team captain. He had a successful sports career setting many school records, while continuing to excel in his studies, graduating with top honors.
He entered into higher education on a grav ball scholarship at the University of Mondder in the capital city of Etti IV. He chose the school because of the ability to immediately step in as the starting center striker on the team, and quickly established himself as a leader and team captain at only 18. He set many school records during his time, and by his third year after attracting additional talent to his side had taken the team to the championship. After completing his degree from the university in operational management, a course of study he found effortless while he focused on his sporting career, he declared for the professional draft at the age of 22.
In 29 ABY, while visiting his family on Etti IV, he was approached by Xen'mordin Vismorsus, in a meeting that would drastically change the direction of his life. The Emperor of the small but dedicated Scholae Palatinae Empire had approached him, having seen him on holotapes in his travels and a premonition that he was meant to save their Empire from destruction. Skeptical, but with an ingrained competitive spirit that craved more knowledge of the Force after several displays, he traveled to the Cocytus system. He would enlist himself to the services of the Clan, and take on the role of personal apprentice to the powerful Sith before he would leave.
He spent the first year in intense constant training, bringing his regiment and determination as an athlete to his new life. Under the guidance of his Master and with his connections to the Shadow Academy, he jump-started his education on the Force and the Empire. Once his initial training was complete, and with his own built lightsaber weapon at his side, he was given command of a small team of elite units known as Caliburnus.
Looking Home Campaign
With resources constrained in the Dark Crusade, early on Evant would move Caliburnus to Ft. Lance on Ptolomea, joining the Scholae Palatinae Fighter Corps already stationed there. With his family also on the planet, he was hypersensitive to their protection. As the Clan sought to re-establish a strong presence in the Cocytus System, Evant took early steps to expand the scope of his team, with advanced intelligence techniques and training as a key element of Imperial Scholae Intelligence.
Ptolomea Deposition: Facing the first real challenge as leader of Caliburnus, Evant had to deal with a rogue dictator on Ptolomea who had established a hold while the Clan was away on the Dark Crusades. Yet Evant lead the effort to bring a full scale campaign to remove the rogue government and replace it with one that was loyal to Scholae Palatinae and its Emperor. Following the effort, Evant had gained the trust of his team and the leadership of the Clan as a reliable leader, and Caliburnus was well established in their new home on Ptolomea.
Antenora Rebellion: Unrest on Antenora once again pulled the Clan into full scale engagement. As rebellion erupted and the local people fought back against their leaders of the Empire. As the current Aedile and Supreme Commander Xantros moved on during these engagements to focus on Krath research relating to the local leaders on the planet with his expertise, Evant was elevated to the role by the Quaestor of the Clan as a natural fit as apprentice to the Emperor. This saw Evant relinquish command of Caliburnus and move to Judecca to the Imperial Palace.
Cainian Strikes: With unrest growing on Caina, as outside forces sought to destabilize Clan control of the system, Xen'mordin and Evant stepped in with a campaign of control and Imperialization. Despite his growing command of the Force and talents in battle, he would oversee the entire engagement from aboard the Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer Warspite in orbit above the planet helping to blockade the planet while forces carried out operations in the field. The engagement was considered a success and further gained Evant influence and power in the Clan.
Judecca: During the entirety of the Looking Home Campaign, Imperial Scholae Intelligence found ties back to Fias Zhan and the Scions of Cocytus, a group that sought to overtake Clan control and run the system. This culminated i na direct assault on the main palace in Ohmen, Judecca. Originally in command of the fleet as it blockaded the planet, he would take his talents and skills to the surface of Judecca to retake the palace where he found himself infected with a fear toxin. This pushed him to a state of insanity and clouded with visions his command of the Force could not contain. Yet with the Force as his ally, he would wish himself towards the palace before finally receiving an anti-toxin ahead of the final assault. Evant himself would lead the assault before finally he would personally take off Kelac Lasha one of the lead Lieutenant's heads and helping achieve victory.
Reclanning & New Houses
Following their achievement of full control, and safety and security of the Empire, Xen and Evant would see the Clan to the next level through a period of restructuring. Now as the Proconsul and powerful Dark Jedi with experience, the two would see Clan Scholae Palatinae renamed, with new Clan title holders and Houses. House Imperium and House Excidium were created to protect the new Clan, and push Imperial propaganda in the system to secure control for the Empire.
Voice of the Brotherhood: Recognized by the Grand Master for his creation of an Imperial System, Grand Master Pravus reached out and tapped Evant as the next Voice of the Brotherhood following a vacancy.
Regent of the Brotherhood:
Deputy Grand Master of the Brotherhood:
