Rianna had only met the Chancellor briefly, and it was on her first day in the wards. Now everything finally falling into a routine, and she able to find her own way around the temple without the assistance of padawans, and droids. Now was the time to meet with the Chancellor.

Politicians, not exactly her forte, but she knew as a Jedi she had to get passed such issues. And the Chancellor had made the first effort by coming to the ward. Now standing in her black robes, with her traditional Jedi garb on beneath, her soft soled boots made no sound on the marble floors of the building. The columns that lined the main foyer had been impressive indeed, reminding her a little of the table with its grand entrance. Rianna felt so small standing besides the columns, she knew it would only take on to crush her.

She was however trying to remember the Chancellor as she walked, it had been so quick that day. Patients, odd comm calls. He had been friendly, well dressed. What of his features did she remember, hmm that was a problem that part seemed a bit of a blurr.

She was glad there were others that enjoyed this arena of politics, just not her. She waited while the pretty little secretary went inside to tell the Chancellor she had arrived. She was prompt if nothing else.

The chancellor could hardly believe it, a jedi master had come here and one he had met briefly before... Kind of he knew the name and looking at who it was he knew her face. She was the one healer who he had tried to meet but it was a busy day and now he had the time while he checked his shirt and hair. Then made sure none of the food was in his teeth he didn't want to make a bad impression off the bat while he left his coat on the rack. Something to wear but while he looked out the window at the sight of Coruscant he had to admit he enjoyed it, it added to why he did what he did with new vigor while he went to the door and opened it with a smile. He took in the sight of Rianna with her black robes and her hair while he gave his best smile. "Master jedi welcome."

Rianna lifted her gaze to see the Chancellor, "Chancellor, how wonderful to see you again, thank you for taking time to meet with me once more" Rianna stepped forward, and bowed slightly out of respect. "I apologize that our first encounter was cut short by the business of the ward"

Rianna took in the details that he had taken pain staking efforts to look just so. What could she say to him at this moment, "I hope that I am not keeping you from more pressing engagements"

"No, no previous engagements master jedi. In fact it is my lunch break which is always fun. I was just pouring over reports from our security and monitoring groups. Have you seen the large public bounty from some members of the Black Sun's? It is quite entertaining. If we look closely you might have gotten one but I am not certain." he gave a chuckle to that and offered the seat across his desk while he went around towards the seat and tapped it. "So master jedi, how are you settling in on Coruscant?"

Black Sun. Now that was an organization that she was marginally familiar with. "Do we need to entertain the idea of collecting a few of the Black Sun, not for bounties, but just for galaxy safety overall?" Rianna smoothed her robes, and sat down, her elbows rested on the arms of the chair her hands met in the middle, her fingers interlocked.

"Coruscant is very busy Chancellor, I've had the opportunity to explore quite a bit. Meet a few others, I have yet to arrange meetings with some of my counter parts to find out more of what our duty is with the Republic" She had said it slowly, remembering not to speak nervously or quickly.

"Are you from Coruscant Chancellor?" She knew nothing about this Chancellor either, what did he see the role of the jedi as in conjunction with the Republic.

Harkness shook his head to that, well to most of it. Picking up the black suns would prove futile in some ways as the problem with a criminal government that no longer has an established seat of power. They could be anywhere in the suns space and they wouldn't have to really try. If the Suns wanted to come after the Republic then let them come. His smile came while he sat down in the chair. "Oh I am not really worried about the sun, they have some skill but without a decent leader they are easily scattered. The jedi should have little to fear in terms of what they have to do." He then looked more at her while sitting there tapping on the arms of the chair. "Sadly no master jedi I am not from Coruscant I was born on Zeltros and trained here with my family. We moved around and when I left the army I went back to help Zeltros. How about you?"

Rianna nodded, she did not keep up on these things not that they were not of interest but the warriors of the order definitely kept these things under control. "You're from Zeltros" She raised a brow at that, that would be why the feeling of euphoria in the room.

Where was she from how to answer that, her family history was on Alderaan. Even now she was having her home rebuilt in the fashion of her ancestors. Her family had not been on Alderaan the first time it had been destroyed, and when it had been recreated they went back. So she would not be lieing if she said Alderaan, but that might. She shook her head, do not overthink. "Alderaan, and I am helping them as much as I can"

The House of Organa, other houses had come back as well Panteer, Thul, and a few of the lesser houses.

"Perhaps sometime you would come for a visit, I'll show you how to ride a thranta" She smiled, "Or have you already been there?" The feeling of riding Rianna loved that feeling and there was nothing like it when home.

So she was from Alderaan well that explained so much while he sat there. She was even offering to teach him to ride something he would have to look up later as he smiled to that. "That sounds like a wonderful trip, Between your offer and the one to Lunar Meadows I might have quite a trip planned when I tour around the Republic later. Could always use a master jedi to escort and protect me." He let hi fingers drum along the desk while taking in more of her words. he needed to make sure he was paying attention. "I have been there but only briefly, the senator from Alderaan is someone I have not really met but I have heard she is quite a skilled diplomat. Whenever your free and I am traveling there your grand tour could be quite helpful."

Rianna nodded, she would love to show someone around her homeworld. "I am trained to protect Chancellor, though my skills are mainly focussed on the healers ward. Though perhaps I could be paired with another Jedi to perform such duties, as it would be an honor to ensure your safety"

Rianna nodded, "I have yet to meet the Senator, I hate to impose but can I have her name I would like to contact her" She smiled softly, she was not sure what else she could cover with the Chancellor, she had wanted to meet him, and answer any questions he might have of her.

"Also Chancellor when it comes to my homeworld, by all means call upon me and I am at your service" she looked down for a moment, "Does your office have much to do with the Jedi Temple?"

He gave a nod of his head, the senators name from Alderaan was Kiyala Demont and she was interesting but strange. The woman was skilled in the political arena as he had heard. "Her name is Kiyala Demont master Organa. That is sadly all I know she has been in seclusion since the beginning of the war." Harkness went back around though to sit on the desk and crossed his hands over his lap while speaking more. "We do have some work with the temple. Not much, in truth we are trying to keep politics and the jedi order apart now. After Aleidis and Grandmaster Watts thing with loopholes we are working to get away from that. I only meet with the jedi as I need to and have senator Chi Chuchi and Hanna who are in charge of meeting with the order. I understand Hanna and the jedi master Ike have a very good relationship. Though I am always for meeting with a jedi master and if your a healer then you must have wonderful ways to recover stamina."

A separation that seemed like a good plan, wise to keep the order of peace keepers from the Office of Chancellor, who might have to declare war. "thank you for the Senator's name, I will call upon her" Someone from home, someone she wanted to talk to.

Rianna laughed, "Stamina, yes I generally recommend sleep and good nutrition." She shook her head, "You don't look like someone who needs help with stamina Chancellor" He had caught her off guard, and made her laugh.

The things people asked, it tickled her. "I would like to see about arranging that the Healers Hall be open to the Republic though, I would of course need to clear it. What do you think of that idea?"

He had to admit to enjoying her humor and that she had taken it in stride. Even her idea of the healers being able to help the republic was something useful. The last time time he had seen the healers helping had been Boolon Murr and his students before she seemed to try and be the messiah of peace. A strange notion but one he could admit he supported at that time. Now he was trying to make sure she wasn't totally washed as a dangerous villain for her ideals. It wasn't going to be easy but he spoke. "Well if you have some techniques for more stamina that can always come in handy. I have found in my recent meetings with my director of intelligence, these meetings are quite taxing but your idea has merit. I am all for the jedi healers helping the people in these times."

He was a bit of the devil was he not, this flirty Chancellor. "Any recommendations I would have would require visual stimulation, but you are truly best to keep to good nutrition and sleep" She smiled again. Oh he was trying to have her say something bad, the devil.

Rianna nodded to him, "I think the Healers of the Jedi need to be seen as helpers, and try to wipe some of the mysticism away" The Jedi were skilled as the force deemed, but everyone who was not force blessed needed to see them. "I find in meetings I want to doodle on a datapad, and then when asked a question I laugh nervously and pray they accept the answer I've pulled from my sleeve"

"Do politicians do the same Chancellor?"

She was wonderfully adorable making sure she didn't say the wrong thing in that. It was something he rather enjoyed and let him know at least she wasn't going to be so jedi like she couldn't have some fun or at the most... Wouldn't mind shamelessly being flirted with from a man with a very important position. He even had his name on autoprints now and somehow was respected more so then before. It had brought some humor to him but he wasn't going to deny he rather enjoyed it and after dancing under the moonlight with his director of intelligence well he had proven to himself he could flirt and play a game or at least be honest with one of the most powerful women in the galaxy.

"In truth master jedi, yes a good senator will speak from the moment. If we rehearsed an answer to questions it means we usually are lying or need to press something. Speeches are fine but you don't want it to sound to mechanical you want it to come from the heart and sway the people. That is how I was elected and hopefully not just because there are holotapes of me dancing on zeltros or guest starring on Zeltrons in Love for a couple of weeks." He kept the smile and let it hang what kind of holotapes. Most who knew him or at least looked enjoyed he cared little for hiding things. Honesty was great even when he could admit some of his experiences were somewhat outlandish. How best to explain to a jedi master what happens when an alien species asks you to have their baby.

"But your healers, are skilled and talented. We should show them off and teach people that the jedi aren't some holier then thou order who are above the common man. Maybe you'd want to pose for some holo stills and give an interview?"

"Ahh so then it is true politicians will use smoke and mirrors to get elected" She laughed. If she was shocked about the holotapes it only showed for a brief moment, a flicker, "Well I"m sure they got your best side Chancellor" My my she thought Zeltros.

"I have never been to Zeltron, if I go perhaps you will recommend some safe places for a gullible Jedi Master to visit" Gullible maybe, naive no. Curious always. This Chancellor was a skilled politician, with his smooth speech, and the easy way he was able to answer questions and switch subjects. Was she shocked, a tad but she always thought politiicans were this way.

"I don't want to turn them into a side show Chancellor, their work is serious. Bringing attention to their work is not as important as bringing to attention that we are here to help" Rianna smiled, she was not turning it down, she just did not want it to be an event. She spoke gently, yet firm. "And I would speak with the Council before doing anything so that they too could be prepared for attention"

What would she has said about the alien wanting to have his baby, wow, is that possible? Which species? And did you do it?

"Oh there are plenty of places I can recommend on zeltros but you gullible? I don't think that, I think you would prove more savvy when it comes to how you deal with the planet wide parties, the men and women roaming around in as few cloths as possible and for the record. I have been told I have no bad side but your healer master jedi are not a spectacle they are the people who have skills that can help many. Not since Boolon Murr have our relations with the jedi been so open. The previous groups that wanted the jedi away from the planet, who wanted to use them for scapegoats because there was no helping it."

"We need to make work on fixing those relations. With the war and the fight at Nar Shadda all I get to hear about is how we are warmongers. If we do nothing and sit here in our cradle of democracy.... We are weak, if we try and protect people we are wanting war. There is no balance from these people, the ones on the core. They do not understand what it takes to be decent people in an indecent time. It is why I want to show that the jedi are our friends. You protect the piece and are not trying to rule over us." He remained there and looked down at her more with determination.

"I don't want the people of Coruscant to become like they were, pretending there was no war, that there if no hunger, no poverty. That they were saints and all around who question our greatness are the sinners. The Republic and this office with the help of the old grandmaster sought to push an agenda and claim galactic peace, sought to protect that peace treaty at all costs even as the sith destroyed buildings around Coruscant. Because that was all that mattered, not the people or the actions but having a datapad that said "We are at peace with our enemy" It is what became the problem. I don't know if that makes sense but that is how I saw it."

She smiled, if he only knew just how she could be. "No bad side, I'm shocked, are you trying to say you have obtained perfection Chancellor?" She gave him a wicked little smile, well one that a Jedi could give. The jedi as scapegoats, yes she studied it they all had Order 66, so many died. She didn't want to think about it, it hurt too much even now.

She had heard this, the rumblings that the Jedi were trying to take over. So far from the truth, all they did was work to better the Republic, to protect them from the rise of evil, of those that would take advantage of the good. How could she help him with that, and was it her place. No, she needed to speak with the Council surely they already know what the Chancellor faced, and what he wanted to do to rectify it. But sitll she would ask, to be certain.

She could sense no deception in him, not lies. A dedication to his offce, which was a relief. He made a passionate case, and Rianna thought she understood. She smiled softly, "I think I understand Chancellor." It was a matter of changing minds, and though the Jedi could do that with a wave of their hand they had not. No. The power of the people ruled, "There are those that believe in peace, peace at any cost, even blindness"

She considered this, "I'm sure there is a way to show that the Jedi are friends and not lording over the Republic" She just needed to think at what it was.

The hour was late and the writer tired, she figures she can edit tomorrow.

A way to show the jedi didn't want to lord over people? There was always a way to do that and he hopped off the desk offering his arm. "Well there are ways but we might need the council. Come along master jedi I'll take you back home. We can take in the sights and see the people." The chancellor brushed off his coat while making moves towards the door and snapped his finger to close the shutter of his window. "Always enjoy that part, had it installed just so I could stand there and snap to open the window. Give myself more presence."

Now here was where she was uncertain, as a Jedi she was not sure it was appropriate to take his offered arm, as Lady Organa of Alderaan it would be an insult if she did not. What would onlookers say, she smiled. If they knew the Chancellor they might think of nothing.

She rose and took his offered arm, "It is not far to the temple from here" She watched him and laughed,

"You know, there's another trick." Rianna looked at the door and with a very small wave of her hand it opened. "Presence, how so?" She was curious how he thought that action made him seem larger. When clearly it was his attitude his, personality that was what gave him presence."

Oh he had many things he could do to appear better or stronger but now as he walked out of the office he spoke. "Well as I have seen a good leaders presence. How one comes off to the others, yourself for instance. Your beautiful and kind, obviously compassionate and caring otherwise you wouldn't be a healer and above all have that glimmer in your eye that says you know some mischief. I am known for my honesty but also for my openness about having dated all twelve models of last years zeltrons in love calendar." His smile returned while he kept going down the hallway. "Though my vanity compares little to those who are selfless like you. I'd offer to buy you dinner since we don't pay you for your services but I do not think your grandmaster would like that."
