Rhaaka Ki coronation in Shili

August 13, 2012

Galactic News Network went in Shili to attend the new Queen’s coronation

The Ceremony

A large crowd gathered for the crowning of the new Queen of Shili. Several Togruta attended as well  as several Jedi, to reflect the duality of the Queen Rhaaka Ki, jedi Knight in Dantooine. She was introduced by Jedi master Namine, explaining Rhaaka Ki was from the royal family and a precedent two centuries ago in the Hapes cluster showed Jedi can become Kings and Queens. Wearing a mask, Rhaaka Ki stood on the balcony and thanked the crowd for coming. She acknowledged it’s unusual for a Jedi to lead a state, although she think people of Shili need aid and motive and it’s her duty to protect them. She will base her judgments and action on the Jedi Code and sworn to not repeat the errors of the past governments.

Several people showed either joy or their faithfulness for the new Queen. Before leaving the ceremony she said she’ll promote Raakla Taa’ra for having done much duties. She also announced upcoming changes.

Later, hearing a proposal of the Empire led by Lord Kulith to meet and maybe join them, she said her surprise of such an offer, not knowing their leader. She added she wanted to keep Shili neutral, therefore not joining the Empire.

    Disturbing it is, to hear a good idea, to place a Jedi into governments. Unheard of, this is. There is a reason we do not do this.

    Yes, I am inclined to agree. It seems to me, that the jedi code would not allow some one to rule a world. As I recall, it discourages attachment, which is of course needed if you are to govern a group of people to the best ends.

      As Queen of the Republic world of Bengat and Majordomo to a Hutt, you can certainly teach her some royalty tricks.

        However, I am not a Jedi. Which is a religion, for lack of a better word, which discourages attachment. How then does one care about the people they govern with out becomming attached as it where? To do so would be breaking the code she claims to follow. Or she could follow her code and and keep a distance between her and her people. It does not seem to be a person could do both.
