A sit down with Empress of Tetan Empire

December 12, 2011

GNN Photo Journalist, Dometa Jo visited Mos Entha on Tatooine to speak with the Tetan Empire Empress. A brave woman who has been fighting for the people of Tetan since she was born. A mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend. She is Empress Xera Kato.

Empress Keto from the Tetan Empire received out reporter in her outpost of Mos Entha, Tatooine. She was rather worn out looking; her pleasant demeanour hiding the horrible recent events that had occurred with her Empire. Losing the people she loved is a horrible thing I believe some of us out here in the Galaxy can relate to. The interview immediately began, with the Empress discussing recent events on Mos Entha. “It’s been very busy here on Mos Entha I’m sure you’ve heard a little about all the things going on with the Tusken Raiders’ raiding, the Silentium attacking and the Fel Empire trying to take over.”

All of this fighting going on Mos Entha, is taking a toll on the residents as they continue to fight for their lives. The Empress had this to say regarding their presence on Tatooine, “The Tetan Empire is actively engaged in all four affairs. While we have made some attempts to get into diplomatic contact with the Fel Empire it has not worked out and we have taken the field of battle several times when they have attacked allies of ours on Mos Entha. We will always honor our alliances by providing prompt assistance to any ally in need.. so we have had no choice but to battle the Fel Empire… just the other day a woman associated with us, Miss Ayeka dueled the Emperor and I believe took his arm… so I do not see diplomacy putting a swift end to this when hostility has reached this point.”

She then decided to point out that Mos Entha was being attacked by Tusken Raiders. The residents of the community are in an uproar. The Empress had this to say on these events. “The Tusken’s have been attacking often, we send the Legion out on regular patrol to defer any Tusken Raiders and often pursue them back into the desert. Then there is this unknown and mysterious group that has added more conflicts in the area, called by the locals the Silentium. Almost everyone in Mos Entha has had to deal with that crisis. We’re still not sure what they really want and know so little about them other then that they seem to be some form of sentient droids and seem to wish to wipe out all life on Tatooine.”

When asked about the sudden move from Tetan, the Empress held her ground by answering calmly and confidently “We left Kathalon and the colony there due to a dispute with the Commonwealth’s constant interference of our governing the colony… so we simply gave it back to them and returned our attention to the Empress Teta System. We’ve opened a few recruitment posts on other planets such as this one here on Mos Entha.. we’ve found many new recruits for the Legion here as well as been able to use the location to better facilitate diplomacy. Many diplomats would hesitate on trying to navigate the deep core so this makes a good neutral meeting ground.”

Moving the conversation forward, the interview went very personal, as I asked about the situation with her family, and the truth behind it all. She sat there and smiled, nodding her head confidently, “The Tetan Empire is just fine. We actually have more people now then we had before we left Kathalon. I divorced my husband because he did nothing which helped the Empire and only thought of himself. I removed my daughter from the Empire as she has no sense of reality and could not be a capable successor, caring more for chasing after boys then what happens with the Empire. Not a single true Tetan follows her or him.”

She continues to speak aloud, moving around in the chair as if uncomfortable. “I was not surprised about my husband but I had higher hopes for my daughter…” sighs lightly. “Yes. Just the other day two of our men took a trip to Yavin IV at the request of a Jedi Knight of Yavin. The men were there to gather samples of this toxin as we heard about it on the news and wanted to see what we could find out in order to help Yavin, but not much longer after the men arrived and attempted to take samples other Jedi Knight’s would ignite their lightsabers and began to threaten the men on a scientific mission with death. The men did not even draw their weapons yet the Jedi’s came very close to striking. At the same time a known Sith in the Princess of Roon was there and they ignored this known Sith and let her be while they focused their aggression on my people. This is the last in a long string of events that have proven to me that the Republic has very little future. It lacks vision, it lacks compassion and most of all it lacks heart. It is a thoughtless imitation of the Republic’s of yesterday. and it is depressing. The Tetan’s long ago were part of the Republic in the Hyperspace wars but now? I do not believe them to be any better then the Sith. Of course. I don’t mean to say all Republic world’s are bad but the bad in the Republic overall it’s outweighing the good. I take no pleasure in saying that, it is sad to me, but it is my view on the Republic right now.”

The Empress shifted in her seat, straighting up a bit as she sighs and explained what the Republic needed to do, “They need to get their act together. They need to streamline themselves to not be so tied up in neutrality so that they can actually accomplish something and that they should consider using diplomat’s when there is clearly a problem with other faction’s instead of dodging meeting with them like the last Chancellor Ma’at (Nephthys) did.”

And then she explained the future of the Tetan Empire, “Well right now our goal’s are to ensure the Fel Empire does not take over Mos Entha. to do something about the Silentium attacks and continue to ward off the Tusken attacks. Other then that we’re still making more diplomatic contacts and hoping one day to help form some form of alliance network with like minded groups. For too long has everything been black or white, Sith or Jedi. The silent majority in the middle need a voice so a future goal would be to help establish an alliance network for those of us who find ourselves in the middle, the gray zone.”

In conclusion the Empresses added “Do not to believe any rumors set forth by those with ill will. The Empire is alive and well and will continue to meet anyone who would threaten it on the battlefield.”

    It is interesting to me how the Tetan’s leave Kathalon back to their Tetan home world now and not before they were -forced- to leave Kathalon. As for actually leaving to their home world, if this is the case why do they travel across the galaxy to “Set up a recruitment outpost” in one of the galaxy’s low-populated famous cities? And why would the Empress of an entire system spend her time on this outpost? Unless they do not actually have power over their old home world and are forced to exile in a small building of a city controlled by Hutts.

    (( Which brings us to the question, can a faction control a planet icly just because they historically had a presence there in the past? I do believe there has been an agreement of some sort where you cannot do such a thing; due the the idea that there would be multiple groups controlling the same planet due to historical means. ))

    I have always admired the Empress’s ability with crafting Foreign relations and maintaining an empire; which is why I will be taking her advice on such matters that she so generously put out on the GNN for The Republic to follow. Maybe one day The Republic can too, be a small outpost on Mos Entha having to fight Tusken Raiders to survive… Oh I do hope. ((Sarcasm for those who cannot read properly.))

  2. More IC Less OOC

    ((will this guy knock it off with his ooc vendetta vs teta cause they beat up his group almost a year ago…there is nothing ic in his post but a mix of ooc into ic which is just bad form))

      ((Maybe because Xera belittled (IC) the Republic he’s member of? The answer can be seen In Character as well, although the player might not be the best one to issue an official answer due to their past differences))

    ( Won’t even respond to giacobbe’s post because it’s clearly OOC being shoved into the IC.. as you can see he also shoves the IC into the OOC. Not worth my time and I will just ignore him until he can learn to seperate IC and OOC. )
