"Sand stays. All else changes."
―Iziz


Fiach was used to Jedi and Padawans coming in all shapes and sizes. Not that she was ever going to be someone to judge. As a human raised on Klatooine by Klatooninans who adopted her, she was used to prejudice and had no time for it whatsoever. Which is why the Order felt so much at home to her. Here there was no judgement. Just develop into the best Jedi you can be – that was the only expectation.

Fiach had been forced to miss her usual early-morning run and so was taking the opportunity post-lunch to catch up on her exercise. She was, as ever, wearing her usual Jedi attire – she was of the firm belief that when action called, you rarely had time to change into something more comfortable, so ran in boots and her robes, with the only nod to comfort being the removal of her cloak whilst running.

So, she returned from a shortened run and stopped at a bench, near the temple, and grabbed a drink that she’d left next to her cloak and performed her usual post-workout stretches.

Mnoc was running around the Temple as fast as his little legs could carry him, trying his hardest to get any Jedi Master or Knight to pick him up as Padawan Mnoc had looked forward to this so much since he came to Ajan Kloss with his family after they uprooted from Tatooine which is rare for Jawas.

As Mnoc was running around the temple he went outside for a bit before he tripped over a stone in the middle of the path which made him let out a tiny squeak in surprise "Hkeek nkulla" Mnoc said in anger as he kicked the stone away before sighing and sitting down in a slump "Bok Bok Tatooine *sigh* Ikee miss you" Mnoc said while looking up at the stars.

OOC: If you want to know what Mnoc is saying in Jawanese mixing both Jawanese and Basic for Mnoc because he prefers speaking in his native tongue because it is easier.

Fiach was becoming more and more aware of her surroundings without any conscious thought. Whereas when she came her, she had to connect with the Force to sense her surroundings, now she seemed to have this special radar switched on permanently.

So, she was aware of someone heading her way at pace and looked up to see who it was. Then, she looked down, given the newcomer was not as tall as the average Padawan. She recognised him. Mnoc. There were a few Jawa on Klatooine – given its climate and the fact it was something of a ship’s graveyard.

She was about to greet him when he stumbled and fell. She did not understand what he said, but the action of kicking the stone suggested he was at very least cross.

“Are you OK,” she said as he sat and looked up at the darkening sky. “I’m Fiach by the way, and you’re Mnoc, yes?”

As Mnoc was staring up at the stars "Are you OK" a older girl had said as she approached him, he moved his head when the girl had say next to him "I’m Fiach by the way, and you’re Mnoc, yes? " Mnoc lifted himself off the ground and sat upright with his hands on his lap "How does jar k'osa Feeach know Mnoc?, Mnoc never meet Feeach before" Mnoc said as he twiddled with his hands and then realised something as he said in excitement "Are you Jedi Knight? Mnoc gomlan looking for one so Ikee can be Padawan"

Fiach smiled at Mnoc. She was aware that, due to their stature and speech patterns, they could easily be treated as child-like, which they were not. Especially a Force-sensitive Jawa.

“I have seen you around the temple, is the simple answer. And you stand out by being slightly different, so not easily forgotten. As for your name, it was mentioned to me once. As I say, I have a good memory.” She spoke slowly and surely, unsure just how good Mnoc’s Basic was – although she knew it would be a whole lot better than her Jawaese.

“And no, I’m not a Knight yet. I have passed a couple of my trials, so I am definitely on the journey – I just haven’t arrived yet. And I understand your situation. I have had two Masters and both have gone off on missions and so I have been learning from anyone that will teach me.”

"Nyeta Knight oh mambay, Ikee look all baba neng okka" Mnoc said to Fiach when she said she wasn't a Jedi Knight, a little disappointed because he thought he found one "Master Mnoc, I have found you, you must stop running off I know you are for a...." T-3PO started yammering on before he caught sight of Fiach "Oh have, I interrupted a chat with this young woman here, allow me to introduce myself, my name is T-3PO and I am Master Mnoc's translator, I would have been here sooner if Master Mnoc didn't always run off" Mnoc was getting annoyed with T-3PO's yammering "T-kyoPO Ikee was doing fine, me and Feeach were speaking fine, my basic is getting better" Mnoc with a little anger
"Well I say Master Mnoc that was rude I have you know..."

Mnoc was trying to ignore T-3PO as he continued rattling on and on, he just got back to his conversation with Fiach"So, as Ikee was going to say before this dooka interrupted, you have ko Masters, how did you find so many when Ikee couldn't find any and what do they teach you?"

OOC: Hoping introducing T-3PO isn't to abrupt, just thought it might be good in case Fiach would like some help understanding Mnoc

Fiach was picking up the general flow of the conversation, if not every word. But she knew that Mnoc was making a great effort to speak Basic and so she gave him the utmost respect and focused on his every word, doing her best to make sense of their exchange.

She presumed she must have in some way looked like a Jedi Knight – which she took as a compliment – although she suspected her height was possibly one of the factors.

She was about to speak when a protocol droid arrived and – as was their way – they were even less adept at social interaction than Fiach. And that was saying something.

She smiled at the droid. “I have to say that Mnoc was making himself understood perfectly, which is a credit to whoever is teaching him Basic, as well as to Mnoc himself of course.”

A small part of her felt bad that the droid was now being ignored by Mnoc – but given it was their conversation, she returned her full attention back to the Jawa.

“There are always classes going on. And there is the library you can research in of course. And if you’re ever looking for a sparring partner, I would be more than happy to work on our lightsaber skills together.”

"Why, thank you for the compliment, I taught Master Mnoc because he wanted to be able to understand when people spoke near him, because Jawanese isn't really a widely known language like Basic" T-3PO said to Fiach "But Master Mnoc doesn't always like it when I treat him for his age and follow the guideline in teaching children Basic through the rules set out by the Galactic Republic centuries ago" T-3PO said to Fiach while looking at Mnoc.
"
That's because Ikee am kisewa-kyo years old Ikee am not a child anymore, at least that what Jedi say Ikee am old enough to be a Padawan now" Mnoc said in anger, he didn't like being treated like a child he didn't mind being treated like a child when he was a youngling but now he was old enough to go into the training with a Jedi Knight.

Mnoc looked a Fiach "Ikee wish he could spar but Ikee not very uban, that why Ikee wanted a Jedi Knight or Master to take me as Padawan so Ikee could learn Lightsaber combat but Ikee still waiting, but Ikee have gone to library but most in Basic so Ikee can speak Basic but not read Basic".

Fiach smiled at the droid. They were not sentient but she knew that they seemed to have feelings and it was never a bad thing to get on the right side of one.

She sensed anger in Mnoc and placed a hand gently on his forearm. "You are certainly not a child. You are a Padawan in-waiting. And given a Jedi never stops learning, I am sure you will take lessons in your stride."

"And as for saber combat, I'd be glad to teach you what I now. I've been learning for some time now and can repeat the lessons I have received over that time, if you'd like?"

"Finally someone who knows Ikee am not a child" Mnoc said happily after he heard Fiach say he wasn't a child "But as Ikee said, Ikee not very uban with Lightsaber, you can try to teach me but Ikee will be pretty bad all Ikee have done is learnt how to not be hit by floaty droid" Mnoc said with dejection.

OOC: Sorry for late reply, having trouble with some writer's block so I'm finding it hard to write things, annoyingly happens quite often with me.

Fiach smiled at Mnoc – but a warm and friendly smile, not a patronising one. “Listen, we were all beginners once, never forget that. And there is a theory that I believe in. And it is that practice counts for more than natural ability. The best at anything in life are not those blessed with skills at birth, but those who spend the most time honing their skills. If you’ll let me teach you – and you’ll put the time in, then you’ll become truly excellent with a lightsaber. Believe me.”

Mnoc smiled, not that Fiach could see underneath his mask anyway but nevertheless he smiled when she offered to teach him "You would teach me, oh taa baa, taa baa, taa baa but Ikee know Ikee not good but hopefully with you teaching me, Ikee can get better Ikee have only ever used lightsaber near floaty droid so never tried it on people before so Ikee don't know how to protect myself" Mnoc said to Fiach while fiddling with his hands.

Fiach was slowly but surely learning to read body-language. It was not an innate skill, and there were many variations with so many different life-forms in the galaxy, but she was sure Mnoc was a combination of happy and excited – whatever that emotion was.

“I can teach you and you will learn,” Fiach explained. “The key with duelling, just like the Force, is to believe. Do not fill your head with doubts or you will fail. Not that this means if you think you’re the best ever with a lightsaber it automatically becomes true. But you have to have faith that the Force will guide you and with tuition, your skills will grow and grow.”

“To start with, what have you learned on the subject so far?”

"Well Ikee, only know how to block training droid shootogawa with training lightsaber and basic combat with lightsaber as well, Ikee only recently got his own lightsaber but never used it before" Mnoc said to Fiach, the truth was he was finally glad to be able to use his real lightsaber after he passed his Gathering so hopefully Fiach could teach him some more combat/blocking techniques that he hadn't learnt yet.

Fiach smiled in a friendly manner. “Then you have all of the basic knowledge you need to begin training. The rest will come with lessons and practice. Plus you have your own lightsaber which helps. Your connection to the crystal will help you duel more instinctively – more in tune with the Force.”

“In time you can consider the most appropriate Form for you to use – but I would recommend keeping an open mind until you have practiced with each of the first six Forms. Only then will you understand which one – or perhaps combination – will work best for for.”


“And the majority of training is generic anyway – things like parrying an opponent’s blade.”
