Biography: Before the Commonwealth: The love child of two Sith Lords of different species, his mother; Nik’ol Starshifter(Human), and his Father; Ra’uul Rei’ark(Pureblood Sith). Kid’riuku was destined to become even greater than his parents. Both of his parents had already risen to their respectable ranks individually, and now with their power base combined, there appeared to be no one who would dare oppose them. As Kid’riuku grew, his parents began to teach him various aspects of battle and the force. Nik’ol sharing her knowledge of battle and Lightsaber combat, and Ra’uul passing on portions of his extensive knowledge in the Dark Side of the force, the History of both the Sith Empire and the History of the Sith Species. As part of his parent vigorous training regimine, at age 8 Kid’riuku was often used to infiltrate pirate organizations to help bring them under his parent control, and if not, to dismantle the organization. At 13 Kid’riuku makes it to the Sith Academy on Korriban, where he begins his full time training to become a Lord of the Sith. While away on Korriban, Kid’riuku’s mother, Nik’ol, betrays her husband, Ra’uul, after seeing the power she was forced to share with him. Effectively claiming the entire power base for herself. Posing herself, and herself alone to become the next Darth. Kid’riuku would know nothing of this until after leaving the academy, but not before being left for dead by a, what he thought, friend and fellow acolyte on an artifact retrieval lesson they were sent on. The acolyte knocked Kid’riuku unconscious in the ruins they were searching, destroyed Kid’riuku’s speeder, and left him with nothing but his training blades. For two weeks Kid’riuku wandered in the direction the force pulled him. For two weeks he planned his revenge. When he finally arrived back at the temple, face and hands blistered from the Korriban sun, Kid’riuku marched into the academy classroom where he knew the Acolyte would be, and threw him up against the wall using the force. With a crowd beginning to form, Kid’riuku now throws the acolyte across the room. He draws his blades. “Fight me now coward.” Kid’riuku says, rather calmly for the display he just put on. “Stand.” The acolyte stumbles to his feet and draws his blade. Without hesitation, Kid’riuku drives the blade in his right hand straight through the face of the acolyte, killing him on the spot. This act of aggression would catch the attention of many Sith Lords, some less amused then others. However this act would bring him out of the academy and into an apprenticeship under his new master, Darth Yurois. As Kid’riuku continues his training through his teen years, his parents legacy and power base have become to look more and more appealing to him. After learning of his mother’s betrayal of his father, while he understands the move she made, he grew a deep resentment for her, that he buried in her presence. Kid’riuku’s master, Darth Yurois was also a good ally of his fathers, and also shared in this resentment, and began to plot a scheme to over throw Nik’ol Starshifter, and claim her power for himself, Part of this plan was Kid’riuku himself. Years pass and Kid’riuku grows stronger, and much bolder with the promises his Master makes him of a strong power base, one to rival all contenders. Building him up to execute his grand plan. At the age of 22, a week after his birthday, Darth Yurois summons Kid’riuku to his chamber. Upon arriving to Yurois’ compound, Kid’riuku notices armed forces gathering in the yards around the compound. Slightly off put, and mostly curious, Kid’riuku proceeds up to the compound. Once inside he’s greeted by the usual slaves, who are then rushed away promptly by Imperial Heavy soldiers. Darth Yurois appears, accompanied by another Dark Lord, and an Imperial Agent by the name of Jojo Lett. It’s here that Kid’riuku is informed of Yurois’ plan, and that he would be the instrument of destruction that would bring down his mother’s empire and claim his rightful place as head of their forces. Kid’riuku’s ambitions would run rampant at the thought of the power he could possess if he were to replace his mother. With a hasty bow, he would hurry away to finalize some preparations and coordinate his attack with the Cipher Agent Jojo Lett, and military commands. Finally they’re ready, the moment Kid’riuku has dreamt of since leaving the academy. In an organized assault Kid’riuku, supported by a battalion of imperial soldiers storm the Starshifter compound, killing everyone who opposed their entry. Kid’riuku fights his way through his family house, through the rooms he studied in, ate in, trained in, to make his way to his mother. After a lengthy duel, Kid’riuku catches his mother making a mistake that would leave her body lying on the floor, or so it would appear. As he turned around to leave and secure his newly earned rank as Lord Kid’riuku, he received a holocall from his master, Who was now in his flag ship, 2000 kilometers above the battlezone. It was now that Kid’riuku felt his master’s true intentions. That his master never intended for Kid’riuku to leave the compound. Darth Yurois’ ship open’s fire on the compound with a barrage of heavy artillery, bringing the entire building down upon his head. After the dust settles, scavengers begin to pick through the rubble and find Kid’riuku, barely breathing, and only just holding on to his life. Darth Yurois catches wind of his survival and decides to just remove Kid’riuku from from Dromund Kaas and orders him to be exiled into the swamps of Kashyyyk. However, Kid’riuku has lost most of his memories as a result of the bombing, and now only remembers his name, and basic functions and tasks. For a year on Kashyyyk Kid’riuku would be forced to hunt, gather and fight to survive, slowly regaining some skills he had before, such as his proficiency with dual sabers/swords. However his connection to force had been severed after the explosion. Then one day, while out tracking prey, Kid’riuku was ambushed by a group of Trandoshan slavers, who sent him to Tatooine to be sold as a slave. On auction day, the slaves were lined up to be shown one by one, or by the group for auction. While standing in the line, Kid’riuku looked down at the chains around his wrists, then down to the chains on his feet, he felt humiliated. He felt anger again for the first time in a year. It started out as a faint ring in his ear that grew with every step he took closer to the podium. By the time he was next in line the ringing had drowned out the noise of everything and everyone around him. Finally the ringing cracks into a dead silence, but a beat begin’s. A heart beat. As Trandoshans and Weequay begin to shout in his face, Kid’riuku hears nothing but the beat, it’s entranced him. Finally a large Gamorrean guard slaps Kid’riuku on the back to get him to step forward, which breaks the trace. When the trance is broken, a force wave is emitted from Kid’riuku that sends everyone on the main floor back and crashing into the walls. The viewers in the balconies begin to scramble for safety, all but one individual who remained, watching intensely. The mysterious individual slowly approached Kid’riuku, amused by the display the young sith had put before him. Their eyes scanned him with the look of someone who found what they were looking for. Saying nothing, the individual handed Kid’riuku a data pad, and a boarding pass. Finally breaking their silence, through the mask they dawned they spoke, Kid’riuku was unsure what they said as the words were muffled, but he did catch the words Commonwealth. The stranger then proceeded to leave the auction house, signaling Kid’riuku to follow. Despite his instincts, Kid’riuku followed the stranger through the market of the pirate community the auction was being held, and out to where the stranger’s speeder was waiting. The masked individual, again, motions for Kid, this time pointing to the back seat. As Kid’riuku climbed aboard the stranger took off, accelerating off into the desert at full throttle. Trying to hold on, while covering his eyes from the sand, Kid’riuku took in his surroundings. He was definitely not on Kashyyyk anymore, apparent by the sand and lack of trees. The sun beat down on his face and hands, in the distance he could slightly make out the outline of a city ahead. First thinking it could be a mirage, he thought he was being led to his death, until a frigate entered his sight flying towards the towers. He was headed to Mos Eisley. Upon arriving at Mos Eisley, the stranger directed Kid’riuku to the spaceport, where he promptly had him board the next ship leaving for a planet known as Tal Vera. After the Commonwealth:
After Kid’riuku’s transport ship jumped out of hyperspace, Kid’riuku was brought to awe by the sight of the planet. Having no memory of being to space before, the sight of a planet from orbit was a forgein sight to him again. As the ship began to come into the atmosphere, he was once again amazed by the landscape, the tall rock formations, the open fields, the snow on the peaks of the mountains, and the tumbling waterfalls. The ship flew over many of the major settlements, building Kid’riuku’s curiosity with each passing city. Finally the ship approached a large manor, built into the side of a mountain. Coming in for a landing the ship tilted back and threw Kid’riuku back into his seat. Leaning forward again, he could see others who had just arrived being greeted by three robed individuals. Two humans and a Twi’lek female stood waiting the arrival of the Kid’riuku and and the others. Stepping off the ship, Kid’riuku was immediately greeted by the strangers, and led up the grand staircase to the manor. Inside he was directed into a classroom where the Twi'lek woman introduced herself as Ilmessia, and the humans as Zach and Maelri. After introductions, the Twi’lek walked to each newcomer and handed them their basic equipment and explained the uses of each item. Looking down, Kid’riuku studies the items; a wrist comm, a sturdy leather belt, made from Bantha hide, holding a standard commlink, a retractable grappling hook, and a Beacon Transceiver. After developing a basic understanding of each device and their uses, and equipping them. The trio explained who they were and what they stood for, reciting their Code of the Commonwealth in unison.
“A Knight is sworn to valor,
My heart knows only virtue,
My blade defends the helpless,
My might upholds the weak,
My words speak only truth,
My wrath undoes the wicked,
Est Sularus oth Mithas (My honor is my life).”
Kid’riuku felt a sense of nobility from these words, feeling that these strangers could be trusted. Still uneasy, but wanting to hear more, Kid’riuku sat back into his seat while the two Humans stood up in front of them, standing opposite of each other in the hall. Together they took turns displaying different methods of basic force control, pushing, pulling and holding each other in place. As Kid watched them push each other, he had memories from Tatooine of the chaos he caused at the auction house. The Twi’lek walked around the classroom, placing a fruit in front of each pupil. Striding back to the front of the class she asked the room to lift the fruit in front of them. Kid’riuku focused on the fruit, envisioning it floating before his hand. He closed his eyes and reached out with his hand, keeping that image in his mind. When his eyes opened the fruit dangled before his fingers, suspended in mid-air. Shocked by the actions he just performed, he snapped his hand back and the fruit fell to the table again. After congratulating the classroom, the group was split, Ilmessia took Kid’riuku to the side, as the other split between Zach and Maelri. As the other parties left the room, Ilmessia looked to Kid’riuku, asking him to stop her in her tracks and prevent her from striking him. As Ilmessia began to sprint towards him, Kid’riuku raised his hand again, this time imagining a giant one wrapped around ilmessias body holding it in place. Kid closed his fist and ilmessia froze in her place, struggling to move an inch. Feeling a strong sense of power being able to conrtol the movement of the Twi’lek women, he began to feel his repressed anger bubbling up. Ilmessia spoke softly and brought kid’riuku back to a calmed state, and with a deep breath he released his hold on her. Regaining her footing, Ilmessia straightened herself out, then stood ready again. She asked Kid’riuku to now push her from her position, giving him a moment to maintain his composure. Kid’riuku closed his eyes and re-cleared his thoughts. Lifting his head he threw his arm back, imagining a ball in his hand, he thrusted his hand forward, pushing it towards Ilmessia. To Kid’riuku’s surprise Ilmessia was knocked back a step, she began to clap. Congratulating him, she asked if he had previous training, to which he replied he has no memory of it. Moving on, Ilmessia handed Kid’riuku a single Vibrosword, and dawned one herself. Showing Kid’riuku the 6 zones of Form one, she asked him to then perform the proper guard for each position as she struck for them. In no particular order she swung her sword at Kid’riuku, each strike being blocked by his quick reflexes. Content with his performance, Ilmessia signaled for the training session to end. The other groups had started to come back and retake their seats. Standing before the class, the three explained further as to the training that they could continue if they so choose, but as for that moment there was nothing more for them to learn. Dismissing the group the three departed, leaving Kid’riuku on the planet of Tal Vera with many more questions then he had before Tatooine. After some time, practicing the techniques he was taught by Ilmessia, Kid was finally deemed ready to be assigned a Master. During one of his solo drills he would do to hone his saber skills, he was approached by the High Councilor Noora Ardeven. Noora explained to him that she would now be taking him under her tutelage, and that going forward, he would answer to her. Obliging, the pair went through several trials together. Many of them chosen to test Kid'riuku, not only physically, but also mentally. One of those trials included Kid being forced to face an demon of his past. At the conclusion of a very typical training session, Noora received a call notifying her that a call had com in for aid from a near by cave system. As the pair entered the cave, they could see a Trandoshan male, cornered by a rogue Kinrath. Kid would pause in his tracks, between an overlayed fear on Kinrath, in addition to his hatred for Trandoshan's, Kid was very hesitant to help, or engage. After some calming words from Noora, Kid reluctantly agrees to help the Trandoshan, and engages the beast in combat. Using a combination of Plant surge to halt the beast, and Animal bond to sooth the beasts behavior, he successfully manages to calm to beast enough that i makes is exit from the cave. The pair then saw to the Trandoshan, even with his hatred for the species, Kid made conversation with the man, who told him his name was Sett Datch, A merchant, rather then the hunters kid had known Trandoshan's to be. With many thanks, the Trandoshan pledges a life debt to Kid'riuku, who originally has no intention of collecting on such debt. Soon Kid'riuku was ready, and groomed to become a Force Knight of the CommonWealth, and his master, Noora, lead him to the jungles on Tal Vera. She asked kid many questions leading up to a cave, where she would depart him, with the instructions to follow the path and face any obstacle the dark sided Nexus with in the cave may throw at him. As Kid travelled the cave, and came around a bend, he became face to face with the image of his mother, Nik'ol Starshifter. Initially, Kid'riuku's memories of Nik'ol were faded, still not a piece of his memory he had unlocked. That was until Nik'ol spoke about his raising, and her desire to reunite the family. The final piece to kids memory was put into place, and the once hermit Kid'riuku seemingly faded in the cave, as every memory he had from before Kashyyyk flooded his mind. He raised his head, as the memories subsided, and then spoke to his mother as though he was never gone. Explaining to her that it was her fault the family was split, and that her blind following of the false sith would lead her to her own demise. Angered by Kid's words, Nik'ol struck out at Kid'riuku, only to disappear before his eyes in a cloud of dark energy. Calming himself, kid pressed on tot he end of the cave, where i was greeted by his Master. Immediately, Kid questioned Noora on if she had know his mother had survived their battle, to which she honestly replies that she had an notion that she was, but had no solid evidence to link the two together. Accepting this answer, Kid bowed his head, and accepted his new title, knowing that after this moment, he would never be the same again.
