Current Storyline: Fictional Recap
- "Following the Twelfth Great Jedi War and the Battle for Nancora, Darth Pravus's departure from the Brotherhood left more questions than answers hanging in the air. How would Grand Master Telaris Cantor's reign differ from Pravus' New Order, and how much would remain unchanged? Whatever the answers might be, the War taught us one harsh lesson: the Brotherhood is not as safe or secure as we once believed it. With only six clans remaining, The Collective have shown themselves to be a true threat. Even with their defeat, they do not seem deterred from their pursuit of purging the Brotherhood from the Galaxy. We will not win this fight alone or divided. As my duty as Master Archivist comes to and end, however, the rest of this story will fall to the next Headmaster. May the Force guide us forward into a stronger Brotherhood. "
