After dawning on some new robes and fixing her hair back into a long braid, Pearl Fenni leaves her room to find Master Valkus. Abandoning on what she was going to previously do.
She stops a droid along the way, "Excuse me, the little girls and the named Arik. Can you please inform them that Pearl Fenni will come see them soon? Please make sure they have everything they need to be comfortable.”
“I will make sure, Jedi Knight.” The droid responded before going about it’s way.
“Thank you." She continues her way to be able to talk to Kiflin.
She finds the aging human with white hair like her own. His back tall and waiting on her, "Master Valkus, can we please go talk to Master Kif in the brig now?"
"Sure, it's time I had a talk with him as well." He replies as he stands and quickly pivots towards the door, his long robes twirling around him. Turning back to glance at Pearl he says, "Things should be different. So many Jedi lives were lost."'What does he mean by Jedi lives lost? What happened to the GOL ship while I was on the planet?'
Pearl thought to herself, also making a mental note of making sure to find out. Anything else that needs to be done will probably be given to her by Master Kif.
Continuing past Jedi Guardians and down the turbo-lift, he waits till Jedi Knight Pearl enters and states he deck and his security number. The CPU authenticates his voice, and a beam agrees with his retinal scan. Doors slide open and more Jedi security awaits. Nodding slightly, they allow both Jedi Master Valkus and Jedi Knight Pearl to pass. One Jedi strides to meet them.
"Halt, state your business." He says to both.
Valkus answers him, "I am Jedi Master Valkus here to see our prisoner. This is Jedi Knight Pearl." Pearl waves hello at the Jedi Guardian.
"Okay, hmm...Master Valkus. Alright, but only one in at a time."
Valkus strokes his chin, "Pearl, go ahead. I will wait for you then I will converse with him."
Pearl gives a short bow to Valkus, "Thank you so much, Master." Valkus bows back to her before she enters the room ahead.
In the brig, it is transparsteel, duracaste, and unpleasant with grey all around. Master Kiflin is behind floor to ceiling electrobeams, facing away from the door in a meditative position.
"Master Kiflin? It's Pearl Fenni, I was wondering if I can talk with you." She asks as she pads over quietly sitting down in front of him. "I'm sorry I didn't bring tea with me. I don't think the Guardians would have allowed me to bring it in."
Kiflin's eyes open slowly and the look of puzzlement washes over his face.
"Hey Pearl! What are you doing here? Tea would be lovely, my dear. But yeah, they wouldn't permit it. They know I love it." He says as he fully around to face the Jedi Knight. His dreads have grown much longer than the last time she had seen him, and they cover his face.
She gently smiles, "I came to see you. Master Valkus brought me down here. He's to speak to you next. I rescued him off the planet Delaya. There were some unpleasant creatures down there. An apocalypse as he called it. Normal people turning into monsters through bite or scratch. Incredibly strong and fast. I still haven't processed everything from down there. Master Accendo and Padawan John Marr was with me, neither of them survived I believe. Hopefully I will be wrong on their deaths. Why are you here Master?"
Shaking his dreads free from his face, the Kiffarian looks with penetrating eyes towards the Jedi Knight.
"I'm here because I broke a rule, Pearl. I made the choice to go after Revan. I had a vision...of the slain Jedi Knight Meetra Surik. I used my power of Psychometry to search for the whereabouts of Revan upon Drummad Kass. However, Revan wasn't there. Infrit rescued me and together we found Revan and freed him. Grand Master Thesis however wanted me to remain upon the GOL Station. I disobeyed him, and because of that I am here. I never would have left the station, if I had known that it would have been destroyed. What happened to Xavier? What changed him?" I think Kif right there at the end got lost in thought of his own.
Hearing the names Revan and Meetra, Pearl was floored. Kif met the actual Revan? "Wha- wait, The Revan? You freed The Revan?" It was going to take her a moment to process that thought on a different time. "Grand Master Thesis wanted you to stay behind and get blown up on the GOL station? Honestly, if I was in your boots, I would have gone to free Revan too. As I see it, you came to two difficult paths, even if you didn't know of the other. Master Xavier was a fully trained Jedi Master. As to what happened exactly on the ship, I'm afraid only Xavier, Fen, and Infrit would know. Perhaps even Errend. Though no one knows what happened to the Grey Jedi." The thoughts of the grey one warmed her heart a bit.
Kiflin blinking fast shaking his head, "I was told Xavier blew up the station. That he was responsible for its destruction, and the lives lost as well. That station was a gift from the Senator up Fondor. It was a symbol of our trust and bond. Now it's gone, and Fondor with it. I also heard about Emry's death. Everything fell apart when I left, I will never leave you all again." Kif chuckles before turning to face Jedi Knight Pearl Fenni while smiling coyly before continuing, "This brig will definitely help me with that promise...Where is Master Thesist? I need to speak with him. Maybe I can talk sense into him as well."
Pearl took a deep breath before saying anything, "I'm not sure what happened on the station. It was all after my group left to go down planet side. I heard whispers that Grand Master Thesis is dead too. That Xavier had a hand in his death. Master Kiflin, you need to be freed of this brig. Is there anyone I can argue or speak with to get you out of here?"
Kiflin wrinkles his face as he stands up quickly placing his hand on the wall of the ship and closes his eyes. "I will find out everything I need to know from this ship." Kif stops, "Wait...did you say that Master Valkus is here?"
"Yes, I told you earlier. I saved Master Valkus from Delaya. He was trying to find some answers to a celestial thing down there. I didn't exactly question him on it as we needed to get off planet. He's actually going to come in next after I leave." I answer him going to stand up to continue to speak with him a bit longer.
Kiflin sighs and nods, "Okay, listen carefully Pearl...you need to train and prepare yourself. We all must be prepared... Soon we will have to face the emperor. I have learned much about him since I stayed upon Dromund Kaas for over a year. I can help you prepare, but he will be the most dangerous adversary we will have ever faced. Try and ask Master Fen to come see me; tell him it is urgent that I speak with him. But we must try and locate Revan, before we go after the emperor. In the meantime, please try and find out through the holonet where Revan was last spotted."
Pearl nods back to Kiflin listening very carefully as to what Kiflin had to saying. "I do not know where Revan is, but I will find out for you. As soon as I hear anything, I will come directly to you. I promise to train. I will speak to Master Fen directly getting out of here. The creatures I told you about earlier. I don't think that was the first time of them being seen, and I highly doubt it will be the last time either unless the planet is destroyed before an infected person can make it off planet."
Kiflin reaches for her but stops short of the electrobeams. "Thank you for visiting me, Pearl. I really appreciate it. What happened to Accendo on Delaya? Did the creatures get him? Did he help you accomplish saving Master Valkus?" Kiflin looks curious as he awaits her answer.
"We'll get you out of there Master Kiflin. I don't think you made the wrong choice. I honestly don't know what happened to Master Accendo, but he did save us. He bought us time to get in the tank with survivors and get away. He might still be alive down there. But he did also try to attack me earlier, I think that was a dark moment relapsed. But in the end, he did save us."
Master Kiflin looked alarmed for a second, "What the hell? He attacked you? But that makes no sense! If it was that dangerous there, it would be no need for testing you in such an environment. Let’s focus on one thing at a time. Attend to your research and learn what you can, if you can convince Master Fen to come down, please do. I will try my luck with Master Valkus. Thank you again, Pearl." Kiflin lowers his head and bows long to Pearl.
Pearl returns the long bow to Kiflin, honestly feeling a lot better speaking to him. "I will do as asked. I will let you know as soon as I find out something. I'll go so you can talk with Valkus. Next time I will try to smuggle tea in for you." She says to him smiling. Kiflin winks at Pearl and smiles big. The Echani bows again to the Master before leaving the room. Standing at the door waiting for it to open to leave, she turns to Kif once more to give a gentle smile.(Conversation with Kiflin was indeed carried out with Kiflin.)
