In Star Wars: The Saga Novel:
I am Adrian Celestine, a student at Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. (That's Yavin IV in the picture at the top left of this page. The moon, that is - the big red thing is the gas planet Yavin). I am currently fifteen standard years old; I have been at the Academy since I was seven.
The Academy is basically the only home I have ever known. I don't really remember much of my home planet Mayalpia. Most of what I know of it has come from what other people say. And mostly, that isn't too good. When I was much younger, some of the other students used to tease me about my home planet, but that never really bothered me much. Nothing really does.
My Master, Qua-ni Lindstraal says I'm one of the most "centered young persons" he's ever met. Master Qua-ni took me as his Padawan a little over two standard years ago. That's pretty much when the teasing stopped. I guess it is some sort of rite of passage among us students - when a Master selects you.
how jedi are you? :: by lawrie malen
However, when I became a Padawan, some of the Masters who had resisted my coming to the Academy in the first place, started voicing objections again - without any care as to whether I heard them or not. It's a little harder to remain "centered" when the people who will ultimately decide your fate seem to have already made up their minds.
Perhaps my greatest detractor is Master Adao Lakrie. Life sure is complicated. Turns out Master Lakrie is a close friend of my Master. May even be that Master Qua-ni is Master Lakrie's best friend. He's kind of grouchy - I don't think he has that many friends. And he sure doesn't like me. So what do the geniuses that run this Academy go and do - they assign me to Master Lakrie for intensive light-saber training.
Master Lakrie doesn't fool around, either. When he puts someone through the paces, he means business. I thought he was going to kill me in my first session with him. But I'll meet any challenge he wants to throw my way - I'm determined to prove him wrong about me.
As if that isn't enough, Master Luke wants to train me in special Jedi techniques for memory enhancement. I suspect there is something specific he wants me to remember. I wish he would just tell me. When I asked him about it, he just said "some paths you have to walk alone."
The Masters in my Life
|Luke Skywalker|| Qua-ni Lindstraal||Adao Lakrie||Affen Renne|
Life sure has gotten complicated all of a sudden: I just returned from my first mission where I watched people die, met people who held Master Luke in contempt, saw my Master behave with less grace than I ever have; I am assigned new specialized training in addition to my regular studies; and - my best friend and fellow Padawan Sheriliu Tourel just kissed me - and I don't mean a peck on the cheek! *blush*

| Yes, they are for the same month and year. Believe it or not, the dust jacket design was switched in the middle of the month, so I ended up with two backgrounds. Which one do you like best?|
