In the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, the Grand Apprentice Tournament had begun. The top Jedi Padawans have been selected. It was now the third round of the tournament. Both participants managed to best their previous opponents and were now just one win away from the free-for-all finale.
The fight would be in the Jedi Temple's Sparring Arena. Daella stood to the side of the circular ring. @[member="Diana Moridena"] and @[member="Lilia Dur'iar"] were asked to take their places on the opposite sides of the arena. Spectators also filled the room and stood several meters from the arena. These spectators included prospecting Jedi Knights and Masters looking for a Padawan, as well as the other participating in the tournament yet not fighting at the moment.
Once both fighters were ready, Daella gave the signal to begin the fight.
