Aeaolen looked over at the young woman and gave a soft smile. "You can relax. They won't kill you." Aeaolen could sense the confusion and fear inside of the woman, he had sometimes felt it himself whenever he boarded his flagship. He never knew if something had happened and the Emperor had declared him a traitor or an enemy and Aeaolen would be slaughtered as a thousand blasters fired his way. Aeaolen turned his head back to Admiral Lok Kavar, a veteran naval commander who had served during the Clone Wars and was one of the brightest minds in all of the Galactic Empire.
"I saved Admiral Kavar from a leading role in the Death Star's security force and requisitioned him for my personal armada." Aeaolen walked, his--the new Apprentice in tail and the grey-green uniformed Admiral. "Ah yes...Aeaolen you did. I'm often reminded of that.." Admiral Kavar turned and winked at the young woman. "Please Kavar, you know I am just giving this terribly horrified and confused woman a history lesson." Aeaolen paused for a moment and then chuckled. "If I understand correct her last interaction with an Inquisitor probably wasn't none to pleasant. Some of the younger Inquisitors are a little--" Aeaolen was interrupted by Admiral Lok "--bloodthirsty? Ignorant? Callous to the way that the Inquisitorial Order works?" Kavar had been on the receiving end of one of Aeaolen's Apprentice Inquisitors who thought it would be wise to smack down a man that Aeaolen had come to call a friend.
Aeaolen looked at the young woman as the walked to the bridge through the maze of the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer. "Many of us former Jedi who serve the Emperor are more pragmatic in our approach. We found it easier to bring Jedi into the service of the Emperor by resorting to our personalities and luring the Jedi into us then to murder them...or torture them." Aeaolen was immediately brought back to his "breaking" underneath the Emperor, the man who personally oversaw him become an Inquisitor. "Fortunately for us, many Inquisitors are left alone to do as they please--" Aeaolen nodded as a cadre of Inquisitorial Stormtroopers walked past and halted, saluting them. "--we continue that despite the death of the Emperor. We continue to serve the Empire and it's citizens. Routing out the root and stench of treason that would sacrifice a dozen Imperial worlds because they can make a quick thousand credits."
Aeaolen snarled at the words. He was loyal to the New Order but not all of it. He firmly believed in human leadership and that was something that he would hardly change, but he believed that occupation over death would provide the Empire with a continual source of labor and economic stability. "Your role here will be assisting me in my--" Aeaolen paused again and smiled at the Admiral. "--research about the Sith." Aeaolen flashed a wicked grin at the young Apprentice Inquisitor. "I have given you your first sip of the research...the first line of the Qotsisajak or the Code of the Sith." Aeaolen, the Admiral and Arden had reached the bridge. "Peace is a lie. There is only Passion." Aeaolen recited the mantra again. "So...Apprentice Inquisitor Arden Marr, what do you say? You up for learning about the Sith?"
