House Satal Keto, name after the Krath Lord Satal Keto, is one of two houses in Clan Plagueis. The only remnant of the once Clan Satal Keto, it was a house primarily made up of Krath writers, but now consists of all three Orders. Satal Keto currently make their home on the planet Morroth. Currently, it is led by Quaestor Kal Vorrac and Aedile Cassandra El'sin.
The Seventh Great Jedi War
For House Satal Keto, and Plagueis herself, the Seventh Great Jedi War was a disaster. Bitter division once again split the Brotherhood into two warring parties: one Red, one Blue. Like the wars before it, this one served to fracture the organization further still as well as draining away what confidence its members had left in those who prosecuted the war.
Unsure of what they were fighting for, the House and Clan’s morale broke under the weight of constant battle. Apathy set in like a plague amongst the membership bringing the Plagueian war machine to a grinding halt. Though HSK was possessed of a few individuals that battled on under the shattered Plagueian mantle, defeat was imminent.
As the dust settled after three long months of conflict, House Satal Keto lay in shambles amid the ruins of the Clan. Both House and Clan would need time to reassess, rearm, and rebuild. New vision was needed to light the way from the dust-choked rubble of war, to a House re-forged from the ashes.
The Unseen Eye
After the return of the former Ketoan, Silent, who had come back after years of searching in the unknown regions of the galaxy, he found it his home no more and learned of the past events and took up an oath to avenge his former CON’s death and to help the younger members reclaim some of the lost powers of the Clan Satal Keto. This young Clawdite, born into the Krath, but turned Obelisk after his CON’s death, rose through the House reclaiming his old office of Aedile, then on to Quaestor. From there he ruled his House with an Iron fist, keeping tabs on his House planet of Morroth.
It wasn’t long after he reached QUA status that the visions he once had as a child returned to him. He would always remember the words of his former Master regarding the visions: “In the light you can always find your way, that will make you weak; In the dark you must trust your self, trust your strength, trust your skill, and let the force guide you, if you do so then you will only become stronger.” Silent took the words to heart and saw it was time to follow his vision to a continent on his House planet.
Annwfn is a forbidden land on Morroth but it was where the Visions lead him and his AED Raken. Upon his arrival, just like in his vision, he touched the small stone lying in the middle of the snow capped forest and from it rose a grand temple. Silent told Raken to summon their forces and keep outsiders away. Then the two entered the Temple with sabers ignited. Once they reached the center, Silent found a Sith holocron and an inscription:
“Tell me what you regard as your greatest strength, so I will know how best to undermine you; tell me of your greatest fear, so I will know which I must force you to face; tell me what you cherish most, so I will know what to take from you; and tell me what you crave, so that I might deny you…”
From that moment on a light of crimson shot forth and the body of Silent was taken by a Dark Sith Lord… Lord Plagueis. Reinforcements arrived some time later to the shock of their Quaestor possessed. With the Lord Plagueis who once gave his blessing and wisdom to the Clan, he now challenged them to prove their worth and save Silent, and thus the House members took the challenge and entered the tomb…
Fierce fighting ensued, but the House fought as if one hand was bound behind their back. To defeat the ire of Plagueis was to kill their beloved Queastor. Try though they did, the assembled Ketoans were unable to recover their Quaestor from the grip of the dark lord. Many Journeymen succumbed to madness at the exposure to such power as that of Plagueis’ magnitude. The Ketoan Quaestor, himself an Equite, finally fell broken mentally and physically from the ordeal of the possession.
Barely alive, the surviving Ketoans brought him from the temple battleground to the medical facilities of Alpha Base. There he convalesced for a time until his strength returned. What did not return, however, was his desire to rule and seek more power. Like all bright stars, they eventually glimmer then fade. So too did Silent, Quaestor of House Satal Keto, recede into darkness.
The Forge of Pain
In order to grow stronger, all things must learn through pain. So too it is for House Satal Keto. Following the war and the incident of The Unseen Eye, the House has been reshaped into a hungrier, leaner entity than it was before. Gone are those who fled in shame to leave the House to the mercy of the other Clans. Failed is their hope to see it dismantled among the victors. House Satal Keto remains.
Cleansed of cowards, only the true-believers are left. A few dedicated souls whose paths have led them to shape this House as they have shaped themselves, seek to strengthen and reinforce, and draw to them members of like mind. Quietly they toil without notice making small corrections, fine adjustments, always building, ever working. They wish to be forgotten…it will be the killing mistake of their enemies to the last. Of this There Is No Doubt…
House Satal Keto is composed of one battle team, Keto's Vengeance. Galthian and Satal Victus were also battle teams within the house, but are at this time closed.
