Personality: Lysan is outwardly calm, reserved and quiet which is a carefully maintained appearance concealing the internal conflict he experiences as a "Grey Jedi". Lysan pursues the goals of the Forsaken Sons with a brave recklessness, placing himself in Danger to protect the soldiers whom serve within the paramilitary group and sometimes struggles to avoid forming attachments with these same soldiers. Lysan is capable of being highly aggressive and keeps his impulses for thoughtless action in-check with constant meditation and self-discipline, it's this latent aggression that permits him to utilize form VII of lightsaber combat with such deadly efficiency wisely tempering himself while flirting dangerously along the line between the light and dark sides of the force. Uncommon is Lysan's wisdom and it has been earned on a life of hardship and struggle and thus his words often belie his modest years. Lysan thoroughly resents killing despite his ferocity in combat and prefers to carefully disable or cripple his opponents, rendering incapable or ineffective at fighting. Lysan attempts killing-strikes with his lightsaber on what he deems to be exceptionally dangerous individuals or targets exclusively.
Weapon of Choice: Crossguard Lightsaber, DC-17m Interchangeable Weapon System.
Combat Function: Lysan Wehr is a trained Jedi Knight and possesses education in the use of the dangerous Form VII where he surprises Light-side and dark-side practitioners alike with a righteous ferocity in combat fighting with a passionate zeal that betrays his flirtation with dangerous feelings that have been the downfall of more than one Jedi. Growing up with Asho Wehr as a Father he became familiar with weapons at a young age out of necessity to protect himself from potential assassins on Commenor, he later joined the Forsaken Sons proper and distinguished himself for selflessness and bravery going on to join a celebrated unit of special forces troopers within the Forsaken Sons consisting of former Storm Commandos. Lysan is a competant combatant shouldn't be underestimated by any opponent, taking an unusually pragmatic approach for somebody who studies and adheres to light-side principles, Lysan combines his paramilitary and Jedi training to ensure that he has a broad range of answers for different situations.. Lysan despite his training and raw aptitude for Form VII of lightsaber combat is usually less proficient in his use of the force and other forms of lightsaber combat when contrasted with those who have dedicated their entire lives to studying and practising duelling, for this reason he prefers to enter combat as a normal combatant relying on ranged weapons and paramilitary training with the use of a Force power to see him through when no other weapons or tools will suffice, falling back on lightsaber combat only when he believes it necessary.
Lysan Riak Cato Wehr is the son of Asho Wehr and Eryn Wehr born approximately twenty-four years ago on Eridau. Lysan spent most of his childhood on Commenor being raised on that planet which resulted in him acquiring the native accent which distinguishes him from Asho who speaks with a distinctive core 'Imperial' accent. Lysan spent the latter years of his youth on Nar Shadda under the careful and watchful eye of his Father who had become a prominent local arms dealer, Lysan was instructed in weapon safety and handling by his father and began to exhibit outward force aptitude using the innate talent passed onto him by Eryn he proudly disassembled a blaster using the force as a tool. Lysan possessed a keen interest in history and philosophy particularly those surrounding the Jedi and Sith Orders respectively and their relationship in shaping galactic politics through their continued conflict. It's on Nar Shadda that Lysan and his active force sensitivity was discovered by a Grey Jedi Master who had gone into exile on the world following a series of unarguably evil actions performed by the likes of the Silver Jedi Order and Galactic Alliance. The Grey Jedi Exile would observe Lysan for a time before being confronted by Asho himself believing the individual was a member of the Sith or perhaps one of Sieger's acolytes and was pleasantly surprised that the truth was to the contrary, Asho listened to the master's prophecy of his sons' destiny that without training Lysan would be consumed by the dark side's insidious grasp. Asho feared his son would share in his mother's destiny of falling to the dark side and was easily persuaded by the Jedi Master that discipline, training and instruction could save the young man and offered to train Lysan despite his extremely advanced age which some Jedi would dismiss as representing great risk.
Lysan become an apprentice to Jedi Master Duro Bulori but not a "Padawan" in dress or behavior to help the young man conceal his status socially on Nar Shadda before relocating back to Commenor for higher education training with his Master accompanying and surveying his apprentice closely throughout, teaching Lysan to master his emotions through intense discipline and with Asho's help taught the young man a combination of meditation and First Imperial army drill. Lysan found that once his mind was cleared when performing these activities and made it significantly easier to listen to the cosmic force, at first this was overwhelming to be made aware to so much life gleaming brightly in the Galaxy though with continued training its' sound came to be beautiful like a stream. Master Bulori tried unsuccessfully to draw Lysan away from drawing upon his passions for strength especially in regards to the beginning of lightsaber combat forms, Lysan was too ferocious and aggressive which Master Bulori believed to be the result of being heavily influenced by his Father. Rather than surrender Master Bulori had an epiphany after meditating and realized they could hone Lysan's ferocity and will to win into Form seven of Lightsaber combat known as "Vaapad". Lysan's embraced Vapaad with an uncommon speed exercising it with unusual talent with the main barriers to his effectiveness using it coming from himself; allowing frustration to sometimes get the best of him when confronted with a stubborn guard but completely unafraid of taking his opponent's darkness and malice into himself which at times fueled his impulsiveness leading Master Bulori to test Lysan's discipline and resilience to the dark side's seductive nature and was surprised that the young man could successfully resist the call of Darkness approaching its wake and then receding from it with an uncanny proficiency.
Instead of undertaking traditional trials Master Bulori assessed Lysan's performance through everyday activities and observed carefully for particularly challenging situations which confronted certain aspects of Lysan's connection to the force, self-discipline and spirit. Master Bulori took a sense of pride from his training of the young man believing it successful watching Lysan one after another overcome personal challenges he confronted upon joining the Forsaken Sons following loyally in his Father's footsteps though it wasn't without difficulty and more often than once Lysan required his Master's guiding words to sail through the trials set-out before him and though the concern never left Master Bulori that Lysan might have exploitable Anger his self-control was especially impressive giving the elderly Jedi Man faith that he would not succumb this way but rather through personal attachments to his loved ones if at all, particularly his Father whose approval Lysan struggled not to strive for and was often overly self-critical. Post graduating from the Forsaken Sons' basic recruit training Lysan went on to quickly distinguish himself and by 852 ABY had passed his Knights' trials and founded a Commando Group of Forsaken Sons' Troopers called "Grey Watch" consisting of former Storm Commandos with Master Bulori acting as an Advisor to Lysan and the Forsaken Son's leadership.
