I commissioned @beastqueenart for art of my Jedi Exile, Wren Sloane, and the pilot of her heart, Atton Rand. It came out exactly like I wanted! Thank you so much for your hard work. They warm my heart and can always make me smile. <3
Atton Rand and my Exile Keshani, she’s neutral leaning to the light side but not looking to return to the order–or join the Sith.
Kesh: Can you teach me to shield my thoughts?
Atton: No. I can only teach you to play pazaak. Do you understand what I’m saying?
Kesh: wtf atton no I don’t??? Then I want to learn to play pazaak.
Atton: Good. Now you understand. All right. I’ll deal, then. If you’re ever fighting someone who has the power over your mind…whether light or dark…play pazaak. And when they try to use their powers on you, suddenly it’s not as easy as they thought. Because you’ll be right here with me, playing pazaak, where they can’t reach you.
Love doesn’t lead to the Dark side. Passion can lead to rage and fear, and can be controlled… But passion is not the same thing as love. Controlling your passions while being in love, that’s what they should teach you to beware. But love itself will save you…not condemn you.
