Nightsister Politics

February 17, 2013

GNN reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide travelled to Dathomir to speak with the Nightsisters.

The mysterious world of Dathomir.

Upon landing on the mysterious world of Dathomir we were greeted by an elder named Ti Shak. She opened up the discussions stating that a new representative of Dathomir to the Confederacy of Independent Systems (CIS) was being prepared for their meeting scheduled soon. The new representative will be announced at the meeting.

Currently the clans are also looking for the body of Lady Kia who supposedly lost a duel to Lady Irina, leaving the latter as the de facto leader. However, Lady Kia’s body has yet to be recovered to verify the claim and also there was reports that more than one was involved in the duel which is against Dathomirian common law; such duels being required to be only one-on-one. Once the elders of the clans have made a determination, they will either verify or invalidate Irina’s leadership claim. If her claim is verified she maybe open to challenges to her leadership most likely by A’mira who was once High-Mother herself and High Elder Teninista. However failure to win the challenge could result in death or exile for the loser.

Following the talk with Ti Shak we were escorted to meet with Lady Irina herself. Speaking with current High Mother, she told of an expedition she and Nev’la, who is apparently under a spell of sorts, took to Dantooine. There they attacked Jill Iikk’a of the Keepers of Truth and Lady Acker of the New Jedi Order (NJO). Lady Iikk’a was then taken into custody with the help of another former DJE Master, Balachandra who Irina stated she controlled now as well. Balachandra had visited Dathomir, in the hope to recover Master Nev’la. However he fell under Irina’s control through trickery and kiss filled with dark energy he’s become another possessed follower of Irina.

High Mother plans to use him and Nev’la to go up against the DJE which she’s had a long-standing feud with. As for Jill, she’ll be kept on Dathomir as an example not go against Irina, who said the same fate would fall others especially those that challenge her claim she bested Lady Kia.
