Jedi Order (Out of Contact)Rank:
Elias can appear in any number of attire depending on where he is. With his Jedi Master, he typically dressed in the traditional padawan's garb, but when a different outfit was needed for a mission, it suited Elias just fine. When it is his choice, he typically wears the traditional padawan's tunic and uniform, but is known to wear clothes more commonly worn by the Galaxy's middle-class citizenry. Distinguishing Features:
Elias is more heavily-set and shorter than his brother, but more physically adept, making him a solid Jedi Guardian candidate. Handiness:
Elias, as opposed to his brother, is a more aggressive person. He generally responds to hostility with direct hostility, usually without any mask of subtlety. He is a very outward person, and his emotions tend to bleed through like ink through thin paper. He has a tendency, as well, to keep grudges, and holds them for as long as he can remember. He is a passionate person, passionate sometimes about violence, but about himself, his family and his work.
His twin brother's influence has curbed some of his rashness to the point that he can be friendly to those who are friendly to him. But a hostile attitude sends him crashing down into hostility, a place he is comfortable with. His first reaction to words is to bluntly insult, sometimes in an immature fashion, and to violence is to return it in kind.
Despite his violent tendencies and temper, Elias is overall a good person. He isn't sinister or intentionally evil, rather he deals more in vengeance and temper. He is dedicated and reliable, though, and willing to do the work necessary to get through something. His physical training has made him tough, not only physically but mentally. Relations:
Jerek Zenduu - Twin Brother
Rene Zenduu - Mother
Kain Zenduu - FatherHistory:
When Rene and Kain Zenduu found out that their future child would instead be two future children, they were overjoyed. They made great preparations, both with their home and with themselves. Twin brothers Jerek and Elias were born into a caring household. Nurtured greatly during their first few months, the twins formed a strong bond with each other and their parents.
As was customary for many families, the Zenduu's requested their sons to be tested for force sensitivity. The Jedi who came quickly confirmed that the pair indeed were force sensitive, but an uneasy Rene and Kain needed more convincing. They were disappointed that they had to give up their children, whom they had had only a few months of life with. The Jedi assured them that the twins would have a loving and caring family among the Jedi, and that they would be doing a great service of the Republic. Reluctantly, Rene and Kain were persuaded, and allowed their sons to leave the comfort of their home and go to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant to be trained in the Jedi life.
Although it was unusual to do so, the Jedi accepted both Jerek and Elias into their midst. Attachments were discouraged, but the twins were allowed to nurture their bond, as their first caretaker thought it would prove to make the two stronger. Over the years, any attempts to do likewise would ultimately end in failure, and the twins were able to maintain the bond between each other, although they were strictly instructed on what attachment could do to a Jedi, and how it may be needed that the bond be circumvented by their duty to the Jedi or the Republic.
As Jerek and Elias both developed in the Temple, it was clear that each possessed an affinity for different areas. Jerek excelled in learning of the Force and absorbing the teachings of the Jedi Masters, but still learned to be a worthy opponent on the battlefield. Elias, on the other hand, took little care of his academic studies, but focused entirely on his skills on the training room floor. Between the two, Sentinal and Guardian, the Jedi who oversaw them agreed that they would indeed make a formidable pair as Jedi Knights.
The Clone Wars came, and the Jedi were commissioned to fight within the ranks of the Grand Army of the Republic. Jerek and Elias weren't far off from being considered for training under another Jedi, but as the war dragged on, possible masters started to die off. Two years into the war, at the age of eleven, Jerek and Elias were finally deemed ready to become apprenticed to a Jedi, but there were no two Jedi available to take them under their wings. The Jedi Council decided, considering the twin's bond, that they could be both be instructed by one master, but the master had to already have trained another before. So they were assigned to Jedi Master Qira-Shir Rekkon, a Jedi in her fifties who had already trained two Jedi before them.
As fledgling apprentices, the twins and their master were not sent directly into battle to fight in the Clone Wars, but instead, they were sent to worlds who still needed the help of a Jedi mediator or to eliminate some kind of threat. Their only encounter with the war itself was when they were sent to a world where the Confederacy and Republic had been engaged in battle for several weeks, and a key installation needed to be found to overturn the Confederate hold on the world. Early in the mission, the Confederates captured Qira-Shir, forcing Jerek and Elias to continue the mission on their own, in addition to locating and mounting a rescue operation for their Master.
It took several days to locate where the droid caravan that imprisoned Qira-Shir had gone, and the twins followed its route. It eventually led them into a complex of droids that they were forced to battle in order to remain alive. During the fight, Elias took the role of protector, tackling the droid guards while his brother located a control system for the complex to shut it down. The guards consisted of a squadron of battle droids only, who were annoying but not invincible. Several of the droids went down without much effort from Elias. Only a few minutes after Jerek had gone off to find the control system, he came back, urging Elias to follow. He did such, and his brother led him to the computer's processor nexus. Understanding what Jerek wanted him to do, he quickly disabled the system in a very devastating way.
Unfortunately, some of the droids had been programmed with auxiliary commands, in the event they were separated from their control unit. Jerek and Elias defeated the remaining droids, but not without cost. Exhausted in battle, Jerek had taken a grazing blaster bolt to his arm. Within the droid facility, there was no bacta available, so Jerek had to endure the pain himself. Elias and Jerek went on for a while,tracking the caravan, but after a while, it was clear that Jerek was not going to be able to go much farther. Elias was convinced by his brother to leave and rescue Qira-Shir on his own, while Jerek would try to make it back to the droid complex to access the computer system and find some information that would help. Elias reluctantly agreed, and Jerek headed painfully back to the droid complex.
Elias continued on alone. From time to time, he was forced to take cover to avoid the many droid patrols in the region, once of which came quite close to discovering him. As the evening drew on, the patrols became a thick stream of droids that indicated a large complex, a base. Elias knew he had reached where Qira-Shir was being held, but he still didn't know how to get in. After hours of searching in the dim light of the evening, Elias spotted a pipe that extended out from the facility to a large body of water nearby. Closer examination led him to conclude that the pipe was drawing water in, but for some unknown function. Still, it was a way in.
Far enough away from the droid guards to escape immediate attention, Elias activated his lightsaber and cut a hole in the grate over the pipe's aperture. Taking a breath of air, the teenaged Jedi dived into the opening into the pitch-blackness of the pipe. The water drew him along at a fast pace, and soon began to twist and turn as it entered the facility. The pipe passed close to some kind of machinery, which radiated the water with nearly unbearable heat. It moved past just as quickly and deposited its contents into a large tank. With the water current at a minimum, Elias was able to use his own arms and legs to move himself about, and he began to swim for the surface. His training allowed him to optimize his oxygen usage, but not even the Force could completely remove his need to breath. And with no rebreather along, he had to rely on his own physical capacity and training.
Elias was able to rise to the surface of the water in the tank, which allowed him a little space for breathing. Detaching his lightsaber, he activated it and cut a hole in the tank wall, out of which he exited into a room surrounded by machiner. Several droids were alerted to Elias' presence, and he was forced to cut them down before any could sound the alarm. With his entrance still unknown to the droid guardians of the facility, he continued along in search of Qira-Shir's holding place.
That next morning, Jerek awoke to the crackling of his comlink. Later, he would be grateful for the sound, for it had alerted him to the presence of a droid squad standing there, considering what to do with him. Pretending he was still asleep for a moment, Jerek carefully planned his attack. With a combination of the Force and his own lightsaber, he cut down the droids. Connecting to his comlink, he heard Elias on the other end, reporting that he had freed Qira-Shir, but it was all she could do to walk, much less fight or talk.
Elias and Qira-Shir made it back to the droid complex to meet with Jerek, and together they headed back for the Republic base. On their way, they met up with a Republic convoy who were able to spare a vehicle and Clone driver to assist the team back to the base. Jerek was so exhausted that it was all he could do to point to the pocket in which the data capsule he had stored there was. During the night, after finding the location of the facility, he had downloaded it into the datacapsule, making sure that the Republic would have the information even if he couldn't personally report it to them.
Jerek woke up almost a day later to find Elias resting comfortably beside him. His arm had healed from the bacta patches the Clone medics had applied, and his health had returned to normal. Qira-Shir, however, required several more days of rest after the ordeal she had gone through. Thankfully, she was not seriously injured, nor permanently deprived of her lightsaber, which she had retrieved before Elias had helped her out of the facility she had been held in.
It was after their mission on that world when Qira-Shir determined that they were ready for the next step in their apprenticeship. She took them to the world of Ilum where Jedi for millenia had come to complete a sort of rite of passage, creating their own lightsabers. Jerek and Elias were both instructed to head into the cave and part ways in little ways in. Elias wandered through twists and turns of tunnels that gradually curved up into the cliffside. Higher and higher he climbed until at last he came to a large cavern filled with the jewels utilized in lightsaber creation.
Taking a seat in the center of the crystal growths, Elias began the instructed mediations. Over the course of his meditation, he found himself engaged in combat with a Dark Jedi, albeit one who used a green-colored lightsaber. His opponent was clearly not a swordsman, and in his arrogance, Elias settled in for a quick fight. But whenever Elias tried to thrust or lunge at it, his opponent would twist away, as if his insight had given him a warning about Elias' attack. Again and again this happened, imbued with attacks coordinated by force-assisted jumps and other powers. Soon enough, Elias' arrogance faded, and a longing for his brother surfaced; the two functioned far better as a pair than alone. But his brother was not there, so Elias had to continue on his own, battling the phantom Darksider. Elias continued his attempts at striking the unknown attacker, but each time was met with a clever escape. His breath became harder to draw and his muscles ached. Determined, however, Elias told himself, "I can do it, I can do it. I don't need my brother's help, I can do it." and his next blow struck the blade of the phantom, where it careened out of control into the empty cavern.
In the darkness, he had not seen the identity of his attacker, but now that he was disarmed, Elias approached him. As he walked into the light, he was taken aback to find the identity of his opponent to be almost a mirror of his twin brother, whose features were contorted into a sinister grin. A moment later, the phantom vanished, and Elias awoke from his meditation. Finding a lightsaber in his hand, the hilt being the one he had used in his vision, Jerek activated it, and found the sapphire blade to be the same as in his vision as well. Unsure of what the resemblance meant, he headed back to the cave mouth, where Qira-Shir was waiting for him. Qira-Shir asked him of his vision, and Elias explained it to her, asking what it meant. But she only smiled. The two waited in silence until Jerek appeared. Qira-Shir approached his brother and the two talked for a few minutes before walking back to where Elias stood. She spoke to both of them at once, saying that they had both faced their biggest obstacle as being a Jedi, and had been shown the key to overcoming it. From then on, it was up to them to figure out how.
Elias was confused by his master's insight, and after conferring with Jerek, confirmed that he was as well. The two never shared their visions with each other, as Qira-Shir had forbidden it, but each tried to understand what it was that made it their biggest obstacle. Even after leaving Ilum, the twins still hadn't understood the meaning of their meditations, or why they both seemed to have had a vision with a similar goal in mind.
As the Clone Wars came to a peak with the death of Count Dooku, Jerek and Elias were sent with Qira-Shir on several missions to various worlds throughout the Republic, and to former Separatist worlds to help oversee the transition from Confederacy to Republic on those worlds. They were stationed on Elrood in the Outer Rim to help the planet peacefully transition to Republic control. The appointed Governor by Chancellor Palpatine reported several attacks on his staff by zealous individuals who denied recapture of their world by the Republic.
After several weeks on the planet without having much luck on locating the terrorist's leader, Qira-Shir developed a new plan. The team would go undercover into the terrorist organization, Qira-Shir posed as the boys' aunt, all vehement proponents of the Confederacy. The members of the terrorist organization, calling itself the Confederate Supremacists, were wary at first, but eventually grew trusting of the trio, and let them into their inner society. They learned that the organization did not possess a rigid hierarchy like some groups, but instead were operated by a number of cells spread over the planet, but all coordinated through their leader, Jessok Moraal.
Over the weeks, the team operated within the Supremacists, who were unaware of the trio's true identities. Finally, they received word that the Supremacists's leader, Moraal, would be coming to speak at a Supremacist rally, held at a secret location in one of the city's abandoned warehouses. Qira-Shir tipped off the Governor's security forces to the meeting, and they raided the rally, detaining all the occupants, while Moraal fled. Breaking cover, the trio went after him, and chased his vehicle to a location underground that seemed to be his headquarters. Using simple force, the team infiltrated the headquarters and confronted Moraal. Qira-Shir offered immunity to him if he would disband his Supremacists, but he refused. Elias suggested that he could either go with them, or go nowhere at all, ever again. That sparked an aggressive reaction from Moraal, who pulled out a lone blaster he had stored on his person. With a small tug of the Force, Jerek pulled the blaster out of Moraal's hand, disarming him, allowing Qira-Shir to move in and arrest him.
All set to head back to Coruscant, the team was shocked to see the news that the Chancellor had uncovered a Jedi conspiracy and, from analysis of the newscast, were feeding propaganda to the Republic's citizens. The Governor, whom the Jedi had befriended over the two months of their mission, was suspicious of the order he received from the Chancellor telling him to detain the Jedi. Instead, he granted them the use of his Helix-class freighter ship as a transport offworld. Ushered to the transport by the world's governor, Jerek, Elias and Qira-Shir made it safely off the planet and headed to a safe haven on a world outside the control of the Republic.
For several months, Jerek, Elias and Qira-Shir wandered around the Outer Rim, seeking friends and shelter, but finding mostly bysteanders willing to do nothing, and shelter only among the stars. On one world they ran into a Clone force that was patrolling the planet and were nearly caught before escaping the world. After a brush with the Republic forces in orbit, they were able to jump to hyperspace, but not without alerting the Republic to be on the lookout for Jedi using their type of ship. Other:
Elias' focus during his training was his physical abilities. His strength and stamina were greatly improved and his lightsaber techniques are advanced for a student of his age. He uses, for the most part, only basic Force powers, preferring instead to fight his enemy lightsaber to lightsaber.
