Chapter 1 Quest of Yavin 4
Manu was the strangest padawan to ever grace the halls of the grand temples. She was taken in when she was two and already even at that age gave off a ripple of force that was scary to many masters. Not because she had such power packed into that body of hers it was because she had not only the core of light inside of her but also darkness as well . Yoda who had taken the child in had spoken to many of the council members saying that she was a ying and yang meaning she was the one that was told of. But the masters had ignored this often and they treated her as if she was any child learning. Except she learned faster than most and already at six she created her go0lden lightsaber and was shockingly great with creatures and animals. She was often given the look as if she was a great monster as if she was something that other padawans and Jedi knights feared and they did because of what she could do. When she was four and she had a nightmare. The next morning the care taker came in to see the room was destroyed everything had been turned to adsh and the child was sleeping on the floor. Yoda had done a lot of one on one training with her as well with the force gift she was given making sure she could stabilize the ability she had. Once he knew she was able to control the two sides enough that it wouldn't lash out with no control he allowed her to tend classes with other padawans. But even then she was shunned away by many still. Often being alone or being in the creatures yard and grooming animals or just reading a book alone in her room. She was very skileld with a lightsaber at the age of tweleve and she finally became a full pledged padawan. But no master or knight took her in still feeling as if she was major danger to them or others even though she wasn't. She felt discouraged and often just went through her day the same way. Get up train, meditate, eat, meditate train and go to bed.
She was eating her morning oatmeal when she saw Master Cain coming over and smiled he was one of the rare masters that didn't see her as a monster or danger to the jedi. Infact he was a lot like a father to her and helped her with stern stances and some force abilties as well. She smiled as he sat with her and she smiled.
"Am I ever going to go out and see the world and experiance everything that i want to? I can feel in am meant to be out there Master Cain i can feel it in my bones, blood and force as well" she said sad that no one wanted her as a padawan. Cain smiled at the young human he saw a well that was untapped the possibilities for this young girl was endless and what she was meant to do was save the world she knew.
"I am sure when the time comes a master or knight will wish to be your guidance. And besides all good things come with time your extremely smart and funny and its about time someone gets you out of here anyway. I am starting to think you like our creatures more then the actually jedi or padawans" he teased rubbing her head. She was often found in the creatures yard wherre the jedi showed padawans and younglings creatures from all over the place. She often was found actually in the exbits at time freaking knights and masters out but no animal had ever attacked her even those that would easily and loved to kill a jedi never attacked her they merely treated her as their own. She had a strange ability with animals which made her the odd ball in many cases but she couldn;t care less.
"Hey they don't treat me like some stranger that they see every day. I mean yesterday I said hello to people that i knew and they all walked past me like i was a ghost or something they never seen before." she said and it hurt it hirt to be different but she never knew the reason why no one knew where she had came from. Only Yoda knew who her linage came from and he even never told her and all memeory of her exstaince was whiped from the arcives as well.
