This would not do at all. This day was supposed to be one of initiation and expansion, the first step into a larger world, and instead it was serving to highlight how deficient he was. He immediately wished that he could go back to his vibroblade, but that was out of the question. Such a move would be considered dishonorable, an admission that he was not nearly as in control of his own power as he had thought – but was that not the truth? Master Greddar had praised his development, and the higher Masters clearly agreed with his assessment, but now that they had actually given him his true weapon, his ability to fight was handicapped. Crippled, even.
His thoughts drifted outward to the rest of the enclave, where a few classes of Jedi initiates were performing evening training exercises. Cos Shibatt realized that those Jedi now outclassed him in both speed and elegance. This was embarassing. What good were his years of training to him now?

Out of curiosity, is the "Jedi Forge" supposed to be the same one seen in TOR? Nice work, I really enjoyed the story. Savage1138 12:16, June 9, 2012 (UTC)
No, it is not. I've not been keeping up a whole lot with TOR or the Dawn of the Jedi comics, and the first scene was actually written a while ago, back when the Wookieepedia article was just a couple sentences long. In this story, it just means the ceremony wherein the swords are empowered, not the place where it is done. In any case, thanks for reading. -MPK, Free Man 14:08, June 9, 2012 (UTC)
