"Civilize the mind but make savage the body."
Name: Pol Siva
Affiliation: Jekore order (Ekrel)
Occupation: Jekore Knight/Ward
Pol is the result of a brief sexual encounter between a Zabrak adventurer and female Nagai. His appearance holds trace of both races that are evident to any who look at him. He inherited ghost white skin from both of his parents and yellow eyes from his father. Pol has thin eyebrows black in color as the only hair that grows upon his head. The horns that grow on his head start just above the center of his forehead and form a line all the way back to the base of his skull with about two inches between each one. What stands out about him the most though is the many black tattoos that adorn his body in accordance with Zabrak culture. These tattoos cover him from head to toe and back to front.
As a self-imposed policy, Pol keeps a strict look upon his face while teaching the trainees which has many thinking him to be mean, but when not instructing he smiles often. This isnít to deter young ones as much as it is to enforce the serious of what he teaches. Polís sense of fashion is one that he favors simple clothing he can move in. To achieve this end, he can normally be found in loose fitting pants with a sturdy leather kama worn over them. The pants tend to be black and his kama is black in color with white embossed designs on the sides and back. On his arms he wears bracers made from cortosis that are usually hidden by the robes he wears. His robes when he is wearing them are cut to fit him loosely so that they can be easily discarded in a fight and are mostly white in color. The nonwhite portions are red in color and patterned to resemble Bha'lirís (a form of tiger) stalking down from the shoulders. Hidden in the robe are openings that allow him to reach his twin silver bladed lightsabers that hang from the belt securing his Kama.
Lightsaber and lightshoto: Pol created these weapons using Durindfire crystals to give the blades a silver glow to them. Each hilt is identical with one exception in detail for which Pol is very proud of. The only thing that lets you tell the two apart is that one has an image of a shriek hawk etched on it while the other has an image of a farlus hawk etched on it. An added feature he built into the hilts of both is that let out a screech identical to the predatory bird etched on each one once a button is pushed.
Tehkíla blades (x2): A traditional weapon of his motherís race, Pol took up the training and use of these blades as a way of honoring his heritage. Each blade was forged by him and is of individual design. Made from durasteel, these blades are stand knives without any kind of vibra-generator.
Other items: Anything else that he carries while out on a mission is supplied by the order and returned back to stock upon his return.
Lightsaber combat skills: Pol has just about mastered fighting with lightsabers of various design and combat styles. His fighting style of choice though is with one lightsaber and a lightshoto. The offset size of the blades let him to have an increased defense while maintaining a strong offence.
Knife fighting: By taking up the tehkíla blades, Pol has trained himself to fight with them until they now feel like a natural extension of his body.
Hand-to-hand combat: Pol believes on being able to fight even if he is unarmed. It is a skill he enforces in all his trainees so that they donít learn to rely on always having a weapon to fight with.
Piloting: While no were near being a combat pilot, he has been taught how to fly freighters and other medium size ships.
Core powers [Knowledge: Strong]
Polís use of the core powers flow from him like water moving in a stream. To use Force speed, Force jump, Force push/pull requires little effort on his part. The use of telekinesis though still requires him to focus on the object if it is much larger than a person or he is trying to move something as big as a starfighter. Through the use of telekinesis he has learned to throw his lightsaber and have it return as well as use his two lightsabers to create a barrier in front of him for a short time.
Electric judgment [Knowledge: Strong]
This is a use of the force that Pol has found that let him tap into the aggression deep within himself. It lets him shoot out a spark similar to force lightning that is green in color. He prefers this to force lightning because it lets him draw more on his aggression than the anger that supports force lightning. Use of this though still holds a powerful draw on emotions which he feels and must reign in if used to much.
Battle precognition [Knowledge: Medium]
Pol has been trained in the way of combat from his very beginning as a youngblood. This dedicated training has led him to using the force to predict an opponentís next movement in a fight. His use of this is limited to when he is fighting organic beings and not droids. The reason for this is that droids arenít living beings and not truly part of the universal force.
Force valor [Knowledge: Medium]
In his quest to become the perfect fighter, Pol taps into the force to increase his resolve, accuracy, and speed as well as that of those standing within ten feet of him. This enables him to move more quickly, strike more powerfully, and fight with improved accuracy. However, if he uses this for longer than an hour it will leave him exhausted and weary.
Force Wave [Knowledge: Strong]
This is the most powerful attack with the force that Pol has learned to do. That also means that for its strength it is also the most destructive and least controllable of his use of the force. The way this works is that he calls up a wave of pure Force that pulses from his body in all directions something akin to a telekinetic explosion. The difficulty is that he canít target the use of the force this way and hits everything around him including any allies near him. Anyone or thing within a ten feet area around him is hit with the full force of the wave which can leave dents even in durasteel. Once used though, Pol has to rest before he can call up another force wave.
Force stun [Knowledge: Weak]
Pol considers stunning somebody a cheap way to win a fight even though he still finds use for it. When faced with a situation where he needs only incapacitate somebody, he will stun them instead of killing them. However he can only do this to organics and not droids which he still needs to destroy.
Force sense [Knowledge: Medium]
This allows Pol to sense incoming danger directed towards him seconds in advance. While it has no exact bearing on what the danger or where it is coming from, it aids him as an early warning mechanism. If being attacked by multiple sources though, Pol can get caught off balance by a skilled fighter.
Force concealment [Knowledge: Weak]
Hiding from a fight is something Pol hates doing no matter the odds, but even he is aware that stealth is sometimes needed. So with that in mind he has made sure he can at least conceal his presence from most beings if not all of them. His only problem is that he canít hide from anybody trying really hard to look at him.
Force confusion (mind trick) [Knowledge: Weak]
Yet another force trick that Pol considers not a true warriors skill, the mind trick as others call it is not something he likes to use. To him clouding someoneís mind takes away from the challenge of honestly facing an opponent in combat. As such, he has not trained very well in this force power and is limited in the people he can affect with it.
Pol is a proud man which he balances with a sense of humility of knowing that there are those stronger than him in the universe. Many people though see him as being brutal, cruel, and a relentless slave driver when it comes to combat training. The reason for this is that while he doesnít expect perfection from his students, Pol does expect them to do the best they can and as such pushes them to meet their limitations head on. His endeavor to turn himself into as perfect a warrior as possible also plays a part of this in that he sees his traineeís progress or lack of it as success or failure on his part. But despite all of that he cares deeply for those he trains and those that he serves with in the order.
His loyalty to the order though is often tested in small and subtle ways. As a member of the ekrel movement, Pol often finds himself at odds with those who arenít able to see the heresy the other force users in the galaxy practice when they use the force. To him every time he feels a force sensitive that isnít part of the order use the force he feels as if he were slapped across the face that there are those who would use the force as described in the scare text for such frivolous uses. The way that other members of the order simply lets this happen and turn a blind eye to it leaves him asking if the order is doing enough in the galaxy. Pol doesnít want to kill all of the heretics though. He would rather they converted over to the Path of Light instead. But those that wonít join he has qualms about seeing those heretics cut down to clear the way for the Jekore order.
Mere days after Pol was born, he was found orphaned by a couple who thought to take the child in. But with three children of their own to feed already, they knew that it was something they couldnít do. Thankfully a solution presented itself to them before they had to make any kind of decision one way or the other. A man came knocking on their door and offered them money to take the child off their hands. At first they were afraid that the man was a slaver, but in truth the man was part of the Jekore order. A minor mind trick later and a few credits transferred had the bundled baby that was to grow up to become Pol in the arms of the man who would give him a home and a life.
With no knowledge of who his parents were or which of the two species was the mother or father, he was given the name Pol Siva to respect both the Nagai and Zabrak blood within him. His first few years among the Jekore order were spent in being taught basic education along with his initial indoctrination into the order. Pol quickly came to see the order as his salvation from a life of uncertainty and at the age of six he made a personal pledge to dedicate himself to the order until death and beyond. While it was a promise made by a child of such a young age, it became one he always remembered when tempted by outside forces. As it was though, he had a lot to learn before he saw anything outside of the Jekore home world due to his formal training beginning shortly after he turned seven.
Pol threw himself into his training full bore no matter how difficult it seemed at times and as days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months it was found that Pol had a natural healthy level of aggression that made him a natural when it came to combat. Soon enough Pol sought to prove himself in combat the way the text described Ekrel doing time and time again. While some saw this as a folly, he found acceptance with others among the order who found wisdom in Ekrelís way. This became his ďcrowd to hangĒ with as the saying goes after that when he wasnít training. Soon enough Polís life changed once more as he was granted the title of knight and sent out on missions for the order.
Life off of the planet took Pol by surprise at the chaotic nature of it and the lack of discipline he witnessed every time he encountered those not of the order. What bothered him the most was seeing force users that used the gift given to them by the universe for personal gain. At first he thought to convert those he found, but with each encounter he found that many saw the order as a collection of lunatics lost in some fool religion. Pol kept his faith in the teaching of Jekore despite all he heard and after many years of building experience, he was rewarded with the move to Ward and combat teacher. Now he spends his time teaching his trainees and other young ones in the way of the Jekore as well as turning them into efficient warrior where possible when not on missions.
