Final Chapter. Sorry for ending it so early.

Chapter III
The New Old Republic

“Carth Onasi!” Jorran called out.

Carth ran over to Jorran, the two Droids following behind him.

“It is a pleasure to see you alive!” Jorran continued.

“I feel grateful to be alive also,” Carth told him, “However I heard both Admiral Dodonna and Master Vandar have perished.”

Jorran head hung in shame. It was as if he didn’t know what to say. At least, not while the Republic was still in danger of being defeated forever.

“Yes,” Jorran told Carth, “The Force has told me that several of your companions have been killed by Revan.”

“And Bastila also.” Carth told him.

“Bastila?” Jorran asked, “I had no idea she had fallen also. Who did she and Revan kill?”

Carth sighed. It felt disrespectful talking about the dead.

“First, two Jedi you knew very well, Juhani and Jolee Bindo,” Carth started, knowing that there were several more deaths to tell to the old Jedi Master, “The Twi’lek Mission Vao and her friend, Zaalbar. The only good thing that has come of this is Malak’s death.”

“Malak’s death means nothing now,” Jorran told Carth, “Revan is a lot more powerful compared to his old apprentice. Now that Revan has the ultimate empire, nothing can stop Revan.”

“All empires fall,” Carth told Jorran, “Surely you of all people should know that.”

“There is no time to debate,” Jorran told Carth, “The remaining Jedi and Republic officers are coming up with a plan to stop Revan, once and for all.”

“Let’s get going.” Carth said, hoping to help.

The Senate Chambers was a large place, where both Admiral Dodonna and Master Vandar had debated on serious matters, along with other important figures of the Republic and the Jedi Order. Now, most of the important figures had gone to fight, against the Star Forge, but every single one had perished. Jorran and Carth entered the Senate Chambers and were greeted by Master Vrook.

“It’s about time you two showed up!” He snapped.

“Patience Master.” Jorran told him, remaining calm.

“Don’t tell me calm!” He continued, “The Galaxy is under threat and you were outside discussing amongst yourselves.”

“I’m sorry about Master Vrook,” Master Zhar told them, “I’m afraid he is angry with the outcome of the war.”

“Didn’t I tell you that Darth Revan would return and nobody would believe me?” Vrook asked.

“He has a point.” Carth added, remembering when Revan was first being tested for becoming a Jedi.

“There isn’t time now,” Master Dorak told them, “We need a new Admiral and since nobody is around, Carth is the only person to do this.”

“Really?” Carth asked, “I don’t think that…”

“I think so,” Jorran told him, “You’re the obvious choice.”

“Be cautious though,” Zhar warned, “I sense Revan above Coruscant. The final battle shall be decided there.”

“It is time,” Carth said, “Time to defeat Revan and his empire.”
