EVERYTHING'S GOT A MORAL,
IF ONLY YOU CAN FIND IT.

She sighed, then nudged Manu.
"Come on, we need to get you to the Council. But, before that..." She guided Manu over to one of the benches in the hanger. "I envy you, you know that? If I was thrown into a situation like this, and, I was, a long time ago, I would be breaking down right now, gaining a few years from all the stress." She smiled, then leaned back on the bench to pop a few muscles in her back.
"You've earned plenty of answers, and, I'm sure you have plenty of questions. Before we go to the Council of Elders, I want you to feel... aware." She then waved a hand at the hanger, then pointed at the exit. "This, is the main hanger of the capital city, Verumi. A couple of miles away, you'll find the temple. It's not massive, but, it's nice. Lord Avaniel says that during the Second Force War, he and a small handful of Hopeful's, Disciples, Knights, and Lords all fled here, to escape the impending doom pf the Sith."
She sighed, then tugged at her lightsaber. "This, is a lightsaber. It used to be pretty common during the Force Wars, but, it's rarely mentioned now. It's the weapon of the Sith, the Shield of the Jedi, and the tool of the Jensaarai. We don't believe in attacking without a reason. We don't protect the Galaxy by flashing our sabers around. We use our lightsabers as a tool to fulfill our own agendas. Most of the time, their just. Others, not so just."
She then unclipped the saber, and lifted it into the air via the Force. "What I'm doing now is something akin to Telekinesis. Through use of the Force, I can move objects through concentration, among other things. There are many applications of the Force, and the Sith practice in the darkest. The Jedi, the Light. We Jensaarai, however, see the Force, simply as the Force. No Light or Dark Sides, simply the Force. We believe that every Hopeful has the potential to do whatever he wants with his abilities. We cannot force someone against their will. We also believe that through our teachings, and by giving them freedom, they will make the better choice. We are not evil, but, nor are we wholly good."
She let her saber fall into her palm, then clipped it back into her belt. "Another thing. The Empire has no idea we even exist. There may be some Sith that know about us, but, think of us as extinct. The Jensaarai was an old, and powerful order, founded after the First Force War. The first Saarai-Kaar was said to be a wise, and powerful man. Lord Avaniel trained directly under him. The reason why we've remained hidden from the Empire, though, is because this planet is very remote. Hardly even the veteran explorers have seen this planet. We keep a close eye on the Empire, from the inside and out. So, when we learned that a Brother was captured, well, we had to act. If the Empire finds out about us, we'll be slaughtered, all for nothing."
She rose from the bench, then took a few steps towards the exit. "There's another reason why Sato is so important, but, that's another story for another day. You'll learn when you're ready. Speaking of ready, I'm sure the Council of Elders is ready for us."
