The clack of a walking stick broke th deadly silence of the wrecked enclave. The main entrance was in prime condition except for the doors but otherwise it seemed as if everything else was smashed or burned at least from the outside. The grunt of an old man sounded through the hall as the man entered the main hall and looked at the bodies literally everywhere. It was a massacre. After leaning next to a familiar sight, he sighed. The first line of defence had fought valiantly as their bodies had piled up around the entrance with deep lightsaber cuts in their bodies while another bunch of bodies littered the actual entrance way. Those bodies were the sith minions that had eventually gotten past the defences to ransack the place.

'And I thought we were supposed to take a new direction with the Order to avoid a new Knightfall' he thought when suddenly it cleared upon him. If it were a new Jedi Purge, would the Sith not leave minions behind to take care of returning or escaping jedi. Just then the humm of a lightsaber came from behind the man and as the jedi turned he saw two of the minions standing there. Fallen jedi no doubt since they were not well enough trained to handle power of his magnitude alone.

The two minions rushed for the man but before even getting two steps forwards the other had been flung against a heap of fallen roof while the other kicked helplessly in the air until the Master's electric judgement finished the man's life.
'Pathetic even for the Sith' he thought and turned once more to see the bloodbath with a deep sigh. As he made his way further inside his hooves and staff made an equally sharp noise echoing from what was still left of the crumbling walls that once had been beautiful.

"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity in all this vastness there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.
