Aedile of House Marka Ragnos
|[ Source ]|
Formerly a member of the Jensaarai, Maelous Ascarend is a Sith Dark Jedi and a Disciple of Sadow. Currently he is the Aedile of House Marka Ragnos.
In 11 ABY, during the Battle of Susevfi, Novac was killed by the invading forces of the New Republic. After the battle, the Jedi Order extended an invitation to the Jensaarai to join them. While they were able to remain Jensaarai, many of them were sent to study with the Jedi. Maelous, while young, understood that the Jedi were the reason for his father’s death.
The twins earned the rank of Apprentice earlier than most, Cordova proved to be stronger in the Force at an early age and was elevated to the new rank at the age of 4 but denied Maelous, while Maelous received his apprenticeship the next year at the age of 5 (11 ABY) with Sol Wariv, rival to Cordova’s master Jaarez Fedic. Wariv believed that the twins should have been trained together, and took Maelous in order to show Fedic how grave a mistake he had made.
- "Light and Dark are not Good and Evil. The Force cares not for our human conceptualization of it."
- ―Sol Wariv
Under Wariv, Maelous learned the ways of the Jensaarai quickly and showed an affinity for Force Alchemy, quickly learning to blend technology with the Force and created his Lightsaber a year later, six months earlier than his sister. During the first two years of his apprenticeship he and Cordova developed a rivalry, driving them to higher standards for themselves than other apprentices, but creating a slight rift between them.
Maelous would learn that true balance in the Force was from accepting both the Light and the Dark aspects, and using them in conjunction with one anothers. Eventually, he would create his own ideas from these teaching, believing that both the Jedi and the Sith only cared about advancing their own philosophy and control. This would eventually lead him to see the olive branch that the Jedi offered to be nothing more than a way to control the Jensaarai. Coupled with the death of his father, Maelous' hatred for the Jedi began to grow.
In 17 ABY Serianaa lead a team into Sith Space to recover a relic on Korriz and were attacked by the One Sith. While a few managed to escape the attack and return to Susevfi, Serianaa stayed behind to assure their safe retreat and was presumed dead.
Following the death of their mother, Maelous and Cordova’s rivalry intensified as they slipped further to the Dark Side. Fueled by anger and hatred and the drastically different philosophies they learned from their masters, they had a higher number of confrontations than other apprentices their age. These minor fights normally ended with a few punches or minor use of Force powers but the last argument that had as apprentices would be much different.
In 19 ABY Maelous and Cordova met in a local market. The initial meeting was pleasant though it eventually turned, as it always did, to their differing opinions of the Jensaarai alliance with the New Jedi Order. The conversation turned heated and ended with Maelous igniting his lightsaber and attacked his twin sister. Cordova was able to defend herself long enough for the two to be pulled apart before any real damage was done.
In 20 ABY, having shown a great command of the Force; both Cordova and Maelous completed their apprenticeships and were raised to the rank of Defender.
Rise and Fall of a Defender
After a few days of drifting through Sith Space Maelous all but crash landed on Korriz. He fell into a sort of Force induced coma for an unknown amount time while he recovered from his injuries. When Maelous awoke he his memories had been altered, in such a way, that he did not remember being One Sith. With the aid of the Force he was able to locate Tritos Nal’s workshop within a few weeks. He made this place his home, eventually finding Nal’s holocron.
It took some time to get past the gatekeeper of the device, but once he did he was able to learn all of the secrets of the ancient Sith Lord. The first workings with the holocron took about 8 months to completed and he had created a crude Sith Sword under its tutelage. With no one to communicate with on the barren planet, Maelous immediately dived back into the holocron repeating the lessons again and again, continually questioning the gatekeeper until there was nothing more to learn.
Two years past and Maelous worked to try and master the lessons of Sith Alchemy from the image of Tritos Nal. During one session the exile felt a presence in the Force, he hid himself and stayed within the workshop armed with his Sith Sword. Eventually the blind Jeric Cyrin entered the meditation room. Maelous revealed himself to the intruder and a battle commenced. Even with his opponent unable to see him, Maelous knew he was out matched and could not hold off the persistent and erratic style of combat that Jeric used, and was repeatedly thrown into the wall by Jeric’s use of the Force. His life was nearly ended by a strike to his neck, but he was able to bat the attack away at the last moment and only received a burn on the right side of his neck from the lightsaber.
During the battle Maelous inadvertently struck the holocron of Tritos Nal with the Sith sword. Due to a low level in quality of the weapon it was destroyed, along with the holocron which held the secrets Jeric had come for, and ended the fight. Maelous sensing the great power of Jeric Cyrin offered to create the helmet and restore his sight in exchange for becoming his apprentice. Jeric agreed, and supplied Maelous with all requested materials. It took him five weeks to create the helmet, and return his new master’s sight. After the task was complete they quickly left Korriz and headed for Canti, Jeric’s homeworld.
