It has been so busy lately I haven’t had time to write in this. Since I last wrote we’ve been deployed three times I think. I’ll have to go through the records to figure out. First stop was Ord Mantell for reequipping and retraining. We have a large number of new troopers in my platoon. Its now a waiting game to see who will be here in a month and who will be transferred or sent...
A Surprise Holocall
Jerax was sitting at his desk on the Hyperion, going over the dossiers of the new transfers to his unit. He fiddled with the ring on his left hand, still getting used to something being on the finger. She was off on a run to some planet he had forgotten, a short run for some supplies. It was an unorthodox proposal in his mind. He was the one who was proposed to, though it changed little in his...
It has been a while since I could pick-up pen and flimsi and actually write anything down. We won our last battle, but Vy was hurt. Bad. She is okay now, but I was scared. Afraid I’d loose her. The walker she was in was hit by an RPAT. It ripped it apart. One of of the Jedi that was with us saved her. I owe him so much for saving my Vyen’a. When we got to the ship the Jedi were working...
It’s been a while since i wrote in here and it may be my last. We’ll be assaulting the Traitors that fled after a failed coup in a few hours. Our armada against theirs and our land army against theirs. No faction, Empire and Republic working together on both sides. Only difference is they’re traitors bent on genocide. Vy isn’t taking this all too well. I can tell she...
The screen flickers to life and the image of a man in blue, fumbling with the recording device appears. “Come on, stay put you stupid thing.” The man leans back to show the man’s identity, a one Jerax Teral. He’s in his dress blues with a guitar in his lap looking at the camera. “Hey Vy, if you’re getting this, I want to let you know that I still love ya. No...
Entry Twenty-two/Entry Twenty-two point five
The 7th is being called up to assist the Marran on some space station. I have no idea why. It’s short notice and I’m only able to muster a handful of troopers. It’s close quarters so it’ll be brutal. This isn’t a job for us. The only reason I can think of them using us is we’re the only ones available. I can only pray we don’t have any losses or major injuries. It will be brutal. End Entry 22 ...
I’m done. I can’t take it anymore. I wanted to make this work. She showed up with a necklace from someone else. It was from Ihlrath. A Jedi of all people! She says it was just a friendly gift, but I know that Jedi has the hots for that girl. If he wants her she can have him. If he can put up with her and all the enemies she has then all the power to him. What enemies does she have...
I’m not sure what’s happened to our relationship. I came back from my meetings and I wend to see Vyen’a. She had a bandaged hand and was glued to the bottle. I knew something was wrong. I kept asking and she refused to tell me. I somewhat am regretting digging. After I got her to tell me, I couldn’t believe what I heard. Vyen’a had brought another man to our ship and...
I can’t believe it. It isn’t possible. Corellia. My home. Invaded. Corellia has been invaded and I can only sit here and do nothing as my friends and family escape to one of our safe-houses and wait. I know my family can take care of themselves. We wouldn’t have been around for a while if we couldn’t. I just never thought I’d see the day an Imperial soldier would...
A Distressing Call
Jerax begins playing his recent missed messages, distressed by the news he has heard. He goes through them all and as he is about to give-up and make a call home, a message from home appears. Jerax immediately begins playing the message. Before him is a middle aged man in his fifties, he has a rifle over his shoulder and a pistol at his hip. He looks behind him then looks at the camera,...
“Teral here.” “Hello there Jerax. You sound so much like your father.” replied Taryn. “Hi mom.” “I was calling to check up on you and Vyen’a and see how you two are doing.” ‘We’re doing alright. A few hiccups along the way, but it’s smoothed itself out.” “So I have heard.” Taryn replies calmly. ...
I’m writing this so in the event I die on this barren wasteland, someone may find me and can let those I care about know my last thoughts. I am on a moon of Alderaan after having to bail out of my stricken transport. My unit was on a mission to Alderaan when two Imperial fighters attacked. We fought them off until a missile ripped through the cabin and killed our pilot. Then a fighter took...
She’s back. We found Vyen’a last night. I should be happy. But I’m not. I know I should be estatic. But I’m not. I am glad she’s back, but I feel like something has happened between us. And not for the better. I think I really screwed the pooch. Dhen just ripped me apart and how I didn’t do what I should have. I don’t disagree. I should have been there...
She’s gone. Vyen’a is gone. They kidnapped her. I saw the video Ihlrath showed me. They ganged up on her and knocked her out. They took her somewhere and now she’s gone. I don’t know what to do. Ihlrath seems to be working to find her. I’ve tried comming Ludwik, but he isn’t answering. I just don’t know what to do. I can’t bear being the thought of...
“Teral here.” “Hey dad, it’s Jerax.” “Hello son, how are you doing?” “I’ve been better.” “Still got your Sergeant on your mind?” Hendrik asked his son. “No… well somewhat. We got him back.” Jerax stated. “That’s great!” Hendrik exclaimed. “Yeah, he looked beaten and...
I just don’t know how long I can do this. I got one of my guys killed. We don’t know he’s dead, though everything is pointing to the fact he’s dead. I got him killed. I could have done something. I could have saved him. I could have fought the Sith. I could have refused to fall back when he said to. I fell back, I didn’t fight. I waited on the damn Jedi to talk it out...
It’s feels good to be home again. No planet could ever come close to my heart like Corellia. Its a perfect balance of modern technology and nature. All the comforts and luxuries you’d find on Coruscant and still have the ability to take a hike and take in the grandeur that Mother Nature gives us. I think Vyen’a agrees with me on that. She kept asking me all sorts of question...
I hate Jedi. I don’t really, but I want to strangle the whole lot of them tonight. Mere hours ago we were going out to investigate some campsite. We brought along a group of Jedi from the Marran with us. Worst idea ever. There is something about holocrons that make jedi go bonkers. I mean, we already established the camp was rigged with traps. We nearly stepped on one on our way in. Then...
I’m on my way back from a quick trip to Coruscant. They just wanted to talk about my postion as Garrison Commander on Voss-ka, or my previous position as Garrison Commander I should mention. I’ve been removed from that post and will return to my duties as Platoon Leader. I am relieved to say the least, it was a position for a Major, a Captain at the very least. No reason as to why. The...
A Comm Call Home
“Teral here.” “Hey dad, it’s Jerax.” “Hey son, how are you doing?” Jerax’s father asked. Jerax puased slightly before continuing, “All is fine on my end.” “Now son, I know you better than just about anyone. What is -really- going on,” his father chastised. Jerax sighed before continuing, “We had a little incident on...
The other night was wonderful. We had an appreciation ball for the Marran on Alderaan. The last time I was there I was shooting bugs so this is a nice change of pace. Had the typical speeches. Had to give one in thanks for the Marran. I enjoy thanking the Marran, I just don’t care to speak. Master Ihlrath gave one in thanks for us. Afterwards we gave Master Ihlrath and Master Nyomi plaques...
Well, last night was probably one of the lowest moments for the unit. Last night was an Op on Ilum. They had us drop in behind enemy lines to eliminate some AAA battery to allow some Jedi to do something. Whatever it was, was gruesome. They all came back covered in blood. They couldn’t have done a better job if they soaked in a tub of blood. For our efforts, we lost two men and had three...
As I write this, I am on a transport back to Voss. I made a stop over to meet a new friend. She needed my help and I went to give it to her. She’s Jerhal’s girlfriend and I have had a change of heart. Might be becuase she needs someone watching her since Jerhal isn’t here. Irregardless, I offered her everything I had to offer. The Republic’s protection, the 7th’s...
Again it has been a while since I wrote here. Between cleaning up diplomatic incidents and dealing with everything life has thrown at me lately, this has been very low on my list to do. What has caused me the most headache lately has been an incident between my unit and some Imperials. I wasn’t there but apparently they were scouting a recently crashed transport belonging to the Empire. As...
Okay, so now I’m pissed and worried at the same time. I am woken up early this morning by Vyen’a and told Jerhal nearly killed himself. I go and meet her at a coffeshop and here I am hearing shit that truly worries me. My Senior Sergeant is depressed to the point he is willing to kill himself. The other day he took out his side arm, placed it under his chin and pulled the trigger....
Yesterday our good friends, the Marran, honored us by presenting the 7th with an award, The Silver Mantle. The Silver Mantle is a medallion on three strands of silver string. They awarded us this medal for fighting with them on Voss when they were at that alter and did whatever they did after they vanished. I am personally honored that they gave myself and five others a medallion with a blood...
So it has been a while since I wrote in this. It has been a busy week. I don’t know how many more meeting I will have to endure, but I see many more in my future. This garrison commander’s position has put me in the center of everything on Voss-Ka. Now in the recent days I have actually had a break from the bulk of my meetings, but I still have to entertain Jedi emmisaries,...
As I write this, my gal… you know what, I’ll just write it out. Everyone knows by now. As I write this, Vyen’a is in the next room over taking care of Jerhal. We had another Lieutenant but he has since left to take care of somethings. Alot has happened since I last wrote so this will be a long entry. So I have just been given the details of a new position I have been given. I am...
So I have just NOW gotten back from a meeting with Command. I was called in two hours ago to go over mission reports and the details of our detail. Now normally this wouldn’t be a bad thing if I wasn’t making up lost time with may gal. Worst possible time. I did at least get hold her and kiss her again. I am thankful I got that much. So now you’re probably wondering what I did to cause command to...
As I am writing this, I have just gotten off duty and the first time I have had the chance to breathe in the last couple of hours. We were supposed to be only training tonight. As a side note, the training went well. The enlisted are showing much potential as leaders and our Jedi Advisor could make a decent leader given time. Though once we were done with our training, we were called out to...
So, I have been told to keep a journal (yes it is a journal and not some diary) so reluctantly I am. They say with me being an officer, it would be a good idea to keep a documented record of my thoughts. I can understand why. If any of my actions are called into question later down the road, I can produce this thing and give an explanation when my memory won’t be as good. I guess the best...
