Brian Daley – The Empire Strikes Back Audiobook (Radio Drama)text
On Serenno, remote from the Core along the Hydian Method,
a women slave of Matter Vemec, costumed in garb from
an era long past, escorted the quartet of human Jedi right into
the castle’s expensively up-to-date conference room. First
to be presented to those set up– including very important people
and political leaders standing for Serenno and neighboring Celanon,
and also the Muun core of Damask Holdings– was Jedi Master
and Council member Jocasta Nu, a pleasant-looking woman with straight hair, articulated cheekbones, and
dazzling blue eyes. Brian Daley – The Empire Strikes Back Audiobook (Radio Drama) Free. Accompanying her were differentiated
Jedi Masters Dooku and also Sifo-Dyas, and a tall, incredibly
constructed Jedi Knight named Qui-Gon Jinn, that continued to be
standing while the remainder took their assigned seats at the
round table. The 3 males lugged themselves with
apparent confidence, and affected beards of different
designs– Dooku’s ended in a fashionable factor; Sifo-Dyas’s.
followed his solid jawline; Qui-Gon’s was long as well as thick. Plagueis, that rarely missed out on a chance to communicate with Jedi, had actually prepared to leave the business on Serenno to.
Larsh Hillside and also the others– up until discovering that Dooku would.
Fifty or two conventional years old, Dooku was Serenno’s.
native kid, hailing from a noble family tree comparable to the.
Naboo Palpatines. Had he not been birthed solid in the.
Force, he would certainly have been a Count, similarly that.
Palpatine would certainly have been a royal. But on minority.
occasions Plagueis had actually encountered Dooku, he had.
sensed something in him that called for even more.
investigation. Dooku was stated to be among the Order’s.
finest lightsaber masters, and also he had actually gained a track record.
as a skilled mediator, also; however his interest and.
uneasyness were what had recorded Plagueis’s focus.
For all his years in the Order, he seemed to have actually kept.
one foot anchored in the mundane. Instead of the.
homemade brownish bathrobes used by most Jedi– like the hale Qui-Gon Jinn– Dooku favored cloaks and robes extra.
appropriate to an evening at the opera on Coruscant. In.
enhancement, he was an honest doubter of Supreme Chancellor Darus as well as the corrupt methods of the Us senate. Most important, perhaps, Dooku was connected to the Sith’s Grand Plan in manner ins which went beyond circumstantial. Some.
twenty years previously, in a system engineered by Tenebrous.
to replace human Legislator Blix Annon with a young startup.
named Eero Iridian, Dooku and also his then-Padawan, Qui- Gon Jinn, were caught up in cases as well as had managed.
to send a few of the principal players to prison. Dooku had.
additionally unintentionally sabotaged numerous of Tenebrous’s strategies to.
foster intersystem dissent in the Development Region.
In the consequences of the near-disastrous murder of.
Vidar Kim, Plagueis’s rate of interest in Dooku had thought a.
new necessity. He knew that Sidious would develop into.
a powerful Sith, however recently the young Naboo was.
intoxicated with power and also susceptible to make mistakes. When the.
dark recognized one as a real ally, a beginner could lose his.
or her means, as had actually practically occurred to Plagueis adhering to.
the murder of Kerred Santhe. Bane-adoring Sith Masters.
like Tenebrous may have used the meeting on Serenno.
as a way of threatening their apprentices with.
replacement. Plagueis, nonetheless, had no such intent, which was why he hadn’t discussed to Sidious that Jedi would be going to the conference. However, he found himself questioning whether a disappointed Jedi like Dooku could be.
insurance policy against a reversal of fortune– some unforeseen.
occasion that would certainly rob him of Sidious– or probably looked to.
the dark without official enlistment, and controlled into.
initiating a schism in the Order. As he had informed Sidious, also a trained Jedi could.
succumb to the lure of the dark side on his or her very own. One.
hundred thirty years earlier, on a previous Sith world in the Cularin system, a Padawan called Kibh Jeen had been so.
strongly impacted by the lingering power in a citadel on Almas that he submitted himself to the dark side as well as.
launched a systemwide dispute. Maybe, under Plagueis’s.
impact, Master Dooku could be influenced to do something.
comparable. The Jedi would certainly bear closer observation. Among Celanon’s lawful supporters was the initial to talk when every person had actually been seated.
” Celanon opposes the existence of Jedi Master Dooku at.
this conference, considering that it has actually come to our interest that he is Serennian by birth.” Serenno’s arrogant Matter Vemec began to respond when Dooku cut him off, addressing himself to the litigator.
” If you had actually checked out further, you would certainly also understand that I.
relinquished all connections to my family and also Serenno on being.
approved right into the Jedi Order.” He transformed his permeating.
gaze on Celanon’s ambassador. “I ensure you that I will certainly be.
as objective as any type of among you.” Celanon’s ambassador– a big, bumptious human–.
cleared his throat in a purposeful method. “Jedi Master Dooku’s credibility for even-handedness precedes him. We trust that he will be as reasonable in this matter as he is known.
to have been elsewhere.”.
” Keeping that problem behind us,” Vemec stated, “I ask for an.
main beginning to these process.”.
The issue available included the scheduled building of an Aqualish-manufactured hyperwave repeater in Celanon.
area that would broaden the reach of the HoloNet well right into.
the Corporate Sector– a vast area of the Tingel Arm that.
had actually ended up being a financial play area for the Financial Clan.
as well as the Corporate Partnership, with financially rewarding bargains.
agented by Damask Holdings. In settlement for the fact.
that placement of the repeater would certainly necessitate adjustments.
in hyperspace trade routes, Celanon had actually revealed that.
ships going into Celanon area from the systems of the.
top Hydian would be required to pay substantial transportation.
taxes. Plagueis had actually restricted interest in the dispute. Covertly.
he hoped that mediation would certainly fall short. Pointing out conflict,.
Damask Holdings could after that take out, as well as the job would certainly fall down, leaving systems in the Tingel Arm fuming.
over having actually been preyed on by a silly tiff in between.
2 affluent Republic worlds. After 4 hours of pointless back-and-forth, Plagueis.
began to seem like the preyed on one. When Count Vemec.
finally called a break in the proceedings, as well as many of the.
individuals headed to the food tables, Plagueis located.
himself alone with Dooku, Sifo-Dyas, as well as Qui-Gon Jinn,.
and also drew the cloak of the profane over himself.
” Squabble is coming to be all as well typical,” he said to.
no one particularly. “In the lack of resolution, it will certainly be.
the distant systems that will suffer the majority of.” Dooku responded sagely. “The hyperwave repeater should.
have been a Republic endeavor. The Us senate erred in.
permitting the HoloNet to be privatized.” Qui-Gon Jinn’s ears punctured up, and also he glanced at.
Plagueis. “Unhappiness in the external systems is in maintaining with the purposes of Damask Holdings, is it not, Magister?”.
” On the contrary,” Plagueis replied in a composed voice.
” We advocate for the passions of neglected worlds when.
and also any place we can.”.
The high Jedi wasn’t encouraged to withdraw. “By.
sustaining the similarity the Profession Federation and also various other.
cartels?”. ” The Profession Federation has actually brought progression to lots of a.
in reverse world, Master Jinn.”.
” Through exploitation that leads inevitably to mess up.” Plagueis spread his hands. “Progress typically comes at a.
price. Once in a while a world will certainly undergo growth pains as.
an outcome, however to call the end result ruination is overemphasizing the.
case.” He examined Qui-Gon. “Certainly the Jedi have had to.
ignore repercussions of the very same magnitude in enforcing.
the laws of the Republic.” Sifo-Dyas’s dark eyebrows created a V. A short, muscle male, he had a wide nose, noticeable cheekbones, and also.
glossy black hair cinched in a high topknot. Radio Drama – The Empire Strikes Back Audiobook Online. His hands were big as well as callused, as if from physical labor. Worry.
shone in his brownish eyes. “It is a mistaken belief that we.
serve only the Republic, Magister. Our Order offers the.
” As the Order specifies it,” Plagueis stated, only to swing the.
remark away. “But after that you have the advantage of being.
