Valara Drayen claims Onderon’s crown

February 8, 2012

Reporters of the Galactic News met Valara Drayen, ruling until recently in Onderon as the Queen.

Valara Drayen of Onderon

Ord Mantell: Valara Drayen denied she surrendered the crown of Onderon and affirmed the tests having shown her affiliation with the former monarchs were authentic. She stated the Jedi had not the authority to relieve her from her duties. She stated the Jedi would have denied the comments made to the press about her leaving, she added she did not believe them. After the quake, they let her in exile during the rebuilt but did not recall her once done. She also complained of the Jedi interference in the local politic, disturbing the civilian’s power, when she was in place.

With her offices currently relocated in Ord Mantell, Valara Drayen is traveling in the Galaxy to gain followers and claim the throne back. She hopes to gain the support of the Republic even if she doesn’t believe the Republic will interfere in a planet’s internal affair. She expect a wide movement of the people will support her against the Jedi when the time will come.

    Interesting! This queen calls people under her banner to reclaim the throne of Onderon and her only ennemies are clearly, jedi. Not long ago she had in her service people who usually are in sith service. If the tests are authentic, she belongs to a dynasty with obvious dark affiliations, the naddists. The question now is….who is the person behind the mask of the queen Valara Drayen? And…out of record, her necklace is pretty, is just a jewel or much more?

      Its no wonder you are from the republic… You’re just as accusive as Hixal. Maybe this queen is innocent

        How many things you know about history of Onderon, Rek’teka? Do you ever know who was Freedon Nadd? You have just sith sympaties and consider they are good guys, what they do how they do, has no importance for you. I can imagine if your friend , Darth Aran come to you and say that Coruscant have cubic form, you really believe it. What a heck, is your friend andif he say so it means he knows something about.Maybe this queen is innocent or maybe she is not, but you are ignorant.
        Who is this so called queen who came from nowhere claiming the throne of Onderon? Where did she came from? You have these answers? It seems not because you use the term” maybe”.
        Or….maybe she came from sith space….Byss or Dromund Kaas, or Myrkr.No one from republic space wasn’t aware about her existence until she came like a flower on Onderon claiming she is from naddist royal family. i could do the same claming im a descendent from royal family of Dromund Kaas but i think the sith will not be so amused. So, my dear Riki tiki, sorry Rek’teka, before you speak do some minimum research, in a matter…kisses

        -chuckles- calling me funny won’t anger me. But it annoys me to see you’re talking like you saved Onderon from an army of battle droids with your hands tied back, or you have any proof against this queen. Actually you know just as much as i do. And yes, it’s true: i dont believe in this so called magic, the force. It makes people act…. Funny. You’re the example for this

    As a Council Master of the NOJ, this topic disturbs me slightly. Long have I been against Jedi interference in political affairs, let alone interfering with a Monarchy. I may need to remind some of the general public and even those claiming to be Jedi, what and who Jedi really are.

    We are essentially a peacekeeping group who serve the republic and it’s constituents, “Serve” has been a neglected key word for some time now. We serve those who are innocent, defend those who are defenseless, and bring those who bring disorder and crime to said constituents to Justice. Any Jedi Order, who claims to rule over a planet, or does not “serve” those they are tasked to protect, can not fully claim they are Jedi.

    Despite OJO’s name, they do not own the crown of Onderon, nor do they have the authority to remove someone from the throne by their own will.

    Now, we cannot simply judge this and say, “The “Queen” is Innocent and must be reinstated, the Jedi are bad”, all from this one simple article, to do so would be narrow minded and rash. The OJO may have had a seriously reason for relieving her, maybe even Valid, but this cannot be determined from these “he said, she said” articles, it can however be solved through an Investigation.

    If Valara Drayen wishes to win over the republics support, then she could appeal and request an immediate and thorough investigation into the matter, and if she so wishes either myself or one of my fellow Consulars would gladly assist as an impartial Jedi witness.

    May the Force be with you all

    You are right, master jedi, an investigation could clear the situation.But this phrase really disturbs me”Valara Drayen is traveling in the Galaxy to gain followers and claim the throne back.”
    From this phrase i can understand she is hiring troops to regain the throne by force. She is not speaking about jedi from Onderon temple, is speaking about jedi in general and i doubt she can trust jedi to start an impartial investigation.And i can give you a start for investigation. During her short reign on Onderon,queen Valara has special guards. Were mandalorians from clan buurenar, clan in service of sith empire. why the queen didnt call in her service locals, not jedi, to guard her and preferred these guards, maybe an impartial investigation will reveil the truth.

    I interpreted her travelling to gain peaceful civilian followers, but If I am mistaken and she is gaining military assets to take the crown by force, she may spark a conflict she may one day regret. In any case, the Jedi should not be the one holding the crown right now, it belongs to the people of Onderon.

    Beyond this event, I have little knowledge on Valara Drayen, therefore I fail to see how I could be partial either way in that regard, especially since I have already outspoken my view regarding the Jedi and it’s interference in Local and political affairs.

    Before those of you claim that I am being hypocritical due to my own interest in involving myself in this current political and local affair, understand that as a Jedi, I feel a duty to make sure that this situation is resolved peacefully, a situation which had been created, in any case, by other Jedi.

    Call it….Fixing our mistakes, so to speak.

    My dear my intentions weren’t to anger you.And i saw those mandalorians with my own eyes. Of course you can say i had an optic illusion, or maybe a mirage but were others who saw them in the same moment with me.So, you don’t believe in the Force, because makes people to act funny , maybe thats why you left sith(was your claim) because the Force made you to act …funny. And you have friends who act funny, right, Rek’Teka

      See, this is exactly what i’m talking about: force users act funny. I don’t know from where you take this, but i’m not a force sensitive((you’re mistaking my force user character with the Black Nebula character who’s not a force sensitive)). I never was and never will be. As i take from your words, you must be a jedi. You shouldnt worry about politics, you should just meditate in your little temples and leave the politics to normal people…

      • February 9, 2012 at 11:46 PM

        I suggest you an intenssive treatment for anger management.For such a young zeltron female you are too nervous.Thats treatment for normal people. And i will pray for your complete recovery.

        February 10, 2012 at 2:10 AM

        -laughs and smiles friendly- another proof that force users act funny. Now why would i be angry? I already mentioned, its hard to get me angered. You’re the one who needs treatment. And as also a medic, im suggesting you to stop using the force. More, i’m suggesting you to drop by our base at Mos Entha. I’m most kindly offer you a treatment at the price of a little talk between you and me. Don’t worry, i won’t bite -giggles- not that hard

    Jedi should not intertwine themselves in politics, it should be left to the people; not those in charge of Jedi orders. Not that I do not support the Jedi but they should have power to control a person or a government. Is freedom not the Jedi way, that is infact why I joined The Republic and choose to be a representative of it’s people and defend it, as do the other soldiers of GAR,the NRGF, and other Republic services.

    ((Please excuse this is OOC-We ended the Monarchy RP on onderon when we lost the sim, yes this is ooc but she knew that the monarchy Rp was over when we left (Miracles Isle to go to Cayo Amenser which is Dantooine) Let’s get facts this is a RP I wrote she wanted to do the part as she knew it was not intended for ever as I own the sim. We had a destruction of Onderon by dark energy she was the last leaving leaving open the thought she might be the one who destroyed the sim. She knew when we left that she was over and that if we decide to do this again we would tell her we put the whole thing on hold since finacial problems in which we were able to settle. There was real reasons this RP was closed and not IC. End this now please, she is doing this to spite us. Ty OJO has nothing to do with this person who had her people do the blood test. We found this to be preposterious! We told her ahead we were going to end the monarchy rp when we left and now we were able to get our sim back it is in best interests that this farse what she is trying to do is ended we will not suport what she is trying to do this is on her own accord.
    this is from Master Zav who is the owner of the sim “Onderon for the last 2 years” Sorry for this ooc needed to clear up things, thank you for listening.))

    Its very kind from you, i really appreaciate. But if you are shrink, i say pass. Whatever i heared some jokes with shrinks and i’ll tell you one.
    Was said that a pacient came to a shrink. The doctor says to the patient” Tell me what kind of problem you have” and the patient said ” Doctor i am attacked by lot of flies” and he was defending himself pushing away the imaginary flies.But the shrink explodes ” Hey, what are you doing? Take back your flies don’t push them against me”
    So, if you are shrink i think you need treatment, my dear Riki’Tiki

      -raises an eyebrow- this doesn’t make any sense to me…. proof No.3 of presenting how funny are force users…. i’d suggest you’d just keep your mouth shut… seems you make fun of yourself everytime you speak. It’s just a friendly advice -smiles-

      • February 11, 2012 at 7:07 AM

        i suggest you miss rekteka to decide what kind of species do you belong. And do it quick and remain at this form. In your place i would be very careful becuse people dont like shape shifters.

    I find this all very appaling to think that someone would have the nerve to try and overthrow the peoples government of Onderon. The people of Onderon are apart of The Republic. In which their laws go directly under the constitution of The New Republic. Which was written and doctrinated by the people of The Galactic Senate. The people who dedicate their lives to public service in the name of the people and our future.

    You may have been queen, but you can not rule over others. Especially when they are a free people. Now I would sugguest possibly helping the people, giving back rather then comquering what is not yours to begin with. One must understand that Onderon is not this queens but the people of onderon and the jedi who do live there.

    You cannot upfront innocent peoples homes and think that the republic would stand by and not have a word in this. I say that the path ahead you must tread carefully. For you are bound to get into more trouble then need be.

    Long live the new republic and the galactic senate. And may the jedi continue to bring peace and prosperity to the galaxy when justice is needed.

    Thank you kindly and may the force continue to guide us true and keep us safe.

    More and more it seems people claiming to be Jedi are coming forth to usurp power from the legitimate rulers and natives of worlds in order to further their own agenda and obtain personal power bases. Just like it was on my homeworld of Bothawui, it is now so on Onderon. Onderon should belong to the Onderonians, If this woman is truly the decedents of Oron Kira, and Talia. Then her claim is legitimate. The Jedi way is not to rule, or to dictate how people should live their lives.If It is their traditions, their ways and their heritage, to have a monarchic government, then they should be allowed to have one. The Onderon Jedi Order should step aside and support the Onderonian government, separate from it, and not seek to directly control or intervene into it unless it is needed to prevent massive loss of life.
