CATHAR TREE CITY:

The trip had been one of quiet contemplation if only because one did not simply come to Cathar usually. The savannah like planet with its large trees and wonderful oceans was a great place. He had brought Iella here to teach and to let her see the world. She could learn much watching the way the warriors moved and fought or just from living in the tree. It would take sometime but he had plenty for her here and now. The order was running smoothly, the fatigue of fighting washed away from simply being with her and now while he moved about the ship he smiled.

The ship shuddered as it came into the hanger on the ground, plenty of steel and stone at the base of the large tree and some paths carved. to the ocean, the reeds were tall nearly coming to his head as the doors opened to show the savannah like plains covered in tall grass and mounds. that had been from old husks. He walked down the ramp bringing only his sabers and a small bag of extra clothing, with a grin though the males standing there greeted with a hug while they spoke quickly and in Catharese <Nimir-ra when we were told you were coming we didn't know what to expect, the current Nimir-ra of the Blood Drinkers clan is awaiting you. We hope you will enjoy yourself.> Syn then turned back to see the four while he gave a nod and spoke so that both sides could hear him. "Thank you and yes we might partake, first though lets get settled. Come Iella." The jedi master walked and went down the path letting the air bring the scent of dry grass. Then he came to the tree and looked up. "Climbing is a faster way if you feel up up to it."

Celtic looked up at the tree towering over her. " I don't think i can climb that" she said with a soft sigh. " But i can always try, Theirs no harm in trying" she said smiling softly. Her purple eyes sizing up the tree searching for the easiest way up.

She had wanted to visit Cathar, and now even more so. Before her, the plains of the landscape stretched wide, varying colours of greens and browns ending the a vast expanse of blue, the ocean. She walked behind her Master and a child, a child she had not met yet. She tuned back to look at the ship, the landing pad kind of looked out of place in this amazing environment, so clean and crisp the product of a well maintained ecology. And then to the forest, trees towering toward the sky, thick and straight, a natural cathedral with branches old and strong, the epitomy of the Cathar.

Iella watches as Min Larel speaks to a man she assumes is one of the Elders. As she moves closer and Syn returns to speaking basic, she bows her head slightly in respect to the man.

As they reach the base of the tree Iella stood along side the child and Master Syn, and looked up. She heard the child speak for the first, her words echoing Iella's thoughts and she smiled to herself. However, she will try ... she wants to experience as much of his culture, of what is important to him, as she is capable of.

"After you Master Syn", she replied, with a slight hint of humour in her voice, as she secured her backpack containing some of her personal items over her shoulder. She is hoping to get a few pointers on the climb by watching him and maybe the easy way up.

He turned back to look at Iella but then down to Celtic offering a small smile. "There is a lift if you would like Celtric or I can carry you." The jedi master took a small moment to touch the tree and his hands drifted slowly along it finding a hand hold while his fingers laced around it. The tree was old but climbing it was never the issue no as he looked up it was a very very simple task. The ancient bark having hand groves that led up for everyone to use. "When you climb, take your time do not rush. It is a tall tree and will not go anywhere. If you need it I can hold both of you and climb." He was fairly certain before flexing his hands again letting the hand groove let him go upwards. He started and stopped offering his arm for Celtic to grab and hold onto. He could support her in his arm and climb one handed.

Celtic thought for a moment " i'll just let you carry me up.. I dont want to fall" she said walking up and took a hold of his arm " would it be easier if i rode on your back? so you can use both hands?" She asked him.

Iella smiled at the sweet child. "Hi I am Iella .. Master Syn will not left you fall and I will be there too. You will be very safe".

She watched as Syn began to climb and waited for the girl. Her eyes narrowed as she noticed his hands grip what appeared to be aids for climbing .. then as she looked upward she could see more. And the branches will help too, but still it is a long way up, this is going to be a challenge. Iella's aerobic fitness is exceptional, but her core muscle strength? well she is not sure about that. It is one thing to physically train ones body, but when it comes to doing something that is random, like climbing, then the missing gaps appear.

She decided to start. Walking over to the trunk she found one of the grooves and another a little above it, she placed her feet in them and lifted her weight of the ground, her hands stretching to reach the next set of grooves. She would have to use these until she reached the area of the branches, hoping they will aid her. Soon she is about a body length ahead of Syn, but she knew that was only temporary. and Oh for the love of Corellian... her arms have already started to ache.

"I hope there is a hot bath waiting at the top of this climb", she joked.

Syn scooped and held Celtic in one hand, he could easily make it up and then he slowly shifted her to hand onto his neck and chest. Not pressed against the tree but just enough he could close that distance to Iella and climbed offering a smile and some advice. "Remember if your arms get tired padawan the force can relax and help them." The jedi master took his time though staying within arms distance as he made it up to the top most branches which were really the size of barrels with smooth tops for walking and perching. Then slowly he started to walk into the city platforms proper where carved floors went to many rooms made in the trees. Stairs led down deeper into it where others lived and finally the scent of sap and leaves.

Then he kept moving only enough to stand in the center of the smaller area with stairs leading up to more homes, more holes in the trees or with some wood and ferracrete buildings. He let Celtic down and looked towards both her and Iella with a smirk. "Welcome to the home of the Thronnos Rocke clan. My clan and one of the largest. You might see some things, there are certain things cathar do in their homes. Modesty is not unknown but sometimes it is ignored, usually with the larger males and females. There are also small fights for position, do not worry about these as they are not too dangerous. Just do not try and get involved."

Then he was tackled by one of said larger Cathar as the jedi master laid on the ground and laughed. "And how have you been?" The large male stayed down there and pinned him while laughing before standing up and speaking taking the others in. "<We have been good Varadun, your presence here is welcoming will be well received. Now often the caln has a powerful jedi representing it.>" The large cathar turned though to see Iella and bowed with a few others while Syn spoke. "Thank you, Iella... Celtic this is my mentors descendent, the current Nimir-ra of the clan and strongest warrior of the planet last I heard."

Iella had not gone far when Syn caught up to her and smiled. He rightly suggested using the force to sooth the muscles for the ascent but she smiled back, "For this .. I shall not use the force ... just this once".

She waited for a moment to study the trunk and to locate the next set of climbing grooves .. she started her climb. The problem she is experiencing is that the grooves are spaced out to accommodate the larger Cathar body span an din some cases Iella struggled to reach the next one. Her hand slipped as her fingers could not take hold on the grip. The other arm the only support from keeping her from falling. Her body swinging away from the trunk, legs kicking in mid air as her back slammed against the hard wood. With a push of her shysical strength she pushed off the trunk to swing back around to grab the same groove she already held. Her feet quickly relocating the foot holds. She put her forehead against the trunk and breathed hard with relief.

After a moment to regain composure and breath, she tried again. This time with audible effort ..she swung up and successfully reached the groove.

Ah .. she had found her climbing Way. Looking back down the trunk, she checked her feet to find the foot holds, she pushed with strength to reached for the next groove and the next .. all with a considerable amount of grunting. In her mind this is working and she is climbing a little faster as her momentum gathered, but her body is aching now, her arms and legs protesting. Soon she reached the first of the branches, "It can't to far now?", she whispered to no one and reached for the branch. She climbed onto it to rest for a moment. Looking down then up, she had only gone about 50 meters. As the realisation struck she closed her eyes her head falling back against the trunk and she laughed. At that moment, she heard a noise her head turned to see the lift pass her by.

"Me and my big mouth".

Iella stood up carefully on the branch to start again, her arms and legs sore but still held some strength. She went to reach for the grooves again only to find she is out of reach now, and she quickly scanned the trunk for more ... finding none.

hmmmm .. just one small Jedi Jump. she thought as she saw the back end of Syn moving fast up the tree. She spotted a branch high up suitable for her to land on .. Iella, in a sideways movement, her arms stretched out for balance, teetered out along the branch away from the trunk creating enough space for the jump. The branch bent a little under her weight .. focusing the force into her legs and arms, she Jedi jumped upward.

Lets just say her judgement is out this day, as she speared through the branches and nettles, beyond the desired destination, she well and truely over compensated and ended in the thickets. Lucky for her the thickets are thick and they held her secure. Her arms and legs in all directions, her hair disheveled and snagged covered in the twigs and nettles. Some minor scratches on her face and hands. However, she is now close to the platform, she looks for Syn and the only thing she sees is his last boot stepping up to the platform which is now only a few meters away.

"Well.. made good time then". she smiles.

Walking behind her Master and along with Celtic, she followed him to a small area, the floor covered in carvings of stories pasts, a history maybe. She will remember to ask him later about them. She is astounded by the many pathways leading off in all directions to rooms and further to what might be residences. The air up in the platforms is clean and crisp with a hint of pine, it is so very nice and she breaths it in filling her lungs to full. She did this several times, and each time it seemed to remove some of her aches. Syn informs them both of some customs and behaviours to look for, not to avoid so much as to be mindful of. Min Larel also welcomes them both the Thronnos Rocke Clann. Iella smiles ...

Before she could speak however, he is hit from the side and a play wrestle starts. The other Cathar clearly happy to see him. Then seeing her, he and some of the others bow. She returns the bow with respect as Syn introduces them.

He smiled seeing them both ready to enjoy the time, the scent of the trees was there but he knew the smell of food as the other Cathar moved off and led them towards an alcove for a few people. Four beds carved into the wood with pillows and blankets. A door or the equivalent of one for keeping out drafts and some small privacy screens. There were refreshers several dozen scattered around close to the rooms while the jedi master entered and set the majority of his stuff down. Not much but there was no need for the boots, the bracers, the robes or even the shirt. He stayed in his pants while speaking and looking down to Celtic. "Pick whichever bed you want Celtic, then get ready there is food roasting at the dinning area."

His lips curled into a smile while he offered a hand to Iella and spoke. "Same to you, change if you need to and prepare to enjoy. There is nothing like pard meals." Then he stepped towards the door and closed it letting himself out so they could change. This was as much for Iella and Celtic to bond as it was to teach and show them new experiences, new wonders as he had promised. His sash was also the only article of clothing he continued to wear for appearance at least. Most here knew he was an old master and even more knew he was and older king among them.

She gave his hand a gentle squeeze before they broke contact for him to prepare to join the dinning and to give them privacy. She did, however, allow her eyes to look over his back as he left the room. Then her demeanor changed as she looked toward Celtic. A beautiful child with white hair, pale skin, and purple eyes, Iella had never seen purple eyes before and they are stunning. She offered a smile and turned to her bag. It had not escaped Iella's attention that Celtic is introverted, speaking only when necessary or at least with her. She did hope that would change .. with time. Never push children, especially if they do not know you, it is always best to let the child come to you, when they are ready to.

Iella did speak however, not really expecting an answer, but more to ease Celtic. "I think I will bathe, I don't want to go to dinner smelly from the climb". Iella reached into her bag and remove the only other piece of clothing she had with her. A white dress. Whenever she could, she would take the opportunity to wear one, if only to remind her she is a girl. She laid the dress on one of the bunks and prepared some water in a basin to bathe. Removing all her clothes, she let the water run in riverlets over the curves of her body, washing away the efforts of the day. She squeezed the sponge over her shoulders and let the soothing water run down her back, bottom and legs.

Once the bath was completed, and she dried .. she slipped into the dress, the fabric felt good on her skin, made from a plant material and light. The dress fell to the floor in length, and at the waist it sat snug to her body. Thin straps rested over her shoulders supporting a V neck line. The only other things her wore was her Moon Stone. She brushed her hair removing the leaves and twigs from the climb and let it fall free down her back. Iella picked up a scent bottle, filled with petal water, then she hesitated. No, she will not ware it tonight, she wished to go to dinner, clean with her natural scent, so the Clan can know her.

The smell of the food lingered into the room, and her stomach answered the call.. Iella placed her hand over her stomach to sooth the savage beast within. "Are you hungry? I am", she said to Celtic. "Shall we go eat".

He didn't need to go back to the room yet, let them get dressed and hopefully bond. The tasks ahead would need his padawans to be strong since he planned to train them in all he knew. Granted that could not be everything, he wouldn't teach them dangerous powers, no he wouldn't show them Juyo but he could show them how best to defend themselves and be safe. He would show them the wonder here on Cathar and then show them the dangers. He would teach Celtic no doubt for years to come and Iella he would teach until she was ready for knight. Then he would still teach her. There wasn't a reason to stop showing her just that she could learn far more.

He came to the table where many had gathered with the plates and the large roasting creature. Without its shell you couldn't tell and it did have meat a lot of meat they could all eat for a day or two. If anything the large beetle was a runt compared but the communal table with seats for everyone and wrapped around so the inside could be used was perfect. The jedi master sat down neat the head with two seats left open as he looked to the rest and gave nod of his head. First food and then they could do some of the more fun things a pard did. That to Iella most of them would be nude or nearly naked but with fur covering... That the finer furred ones wore at best shorts. This was what he had meant, modesty was alien, this showed done had weapons.

What a delight it was to see the child's face light up with a laugh and smile. "Now which way?", she asked. The aroma of the cooking would show them that, not to mention .. their stomachs. As a small joke .. she smiled at looked down into Celtic's face. "Shall we do as Master Syn?, and use our noses?". Iella took in a deep breath, held her nose up slightly and smiled, she also reached out with the force to locate him, which she did, sending him a small hint of their pending arrival. "Not sure what your nose is telling you, but mine says .... ", she pointed to the right, "This way!". Iella giggled too.


As she walked, again the carved floor, she took more notice and looked upon an amazing sight. She could not read the engravings of their language, but the images spoke of triumphs of battles and hunts. In other areas what might be the coronation of a Clans King. There is almost to much to take in, her walk slowed a little as she looked about the history. Her eyes followed one part which eventually lead to the trunk and there more and more. She pointed out some of the more interesting ones to Celtic, at least what might be interesting to a child.


Soon they arrived to the dinning area and Iella stopped to look about yet another amazing sight. Her eyes looked for him, and found him seated toward the top of the table. Unsure of the etiquette she waited with Celtic. Her eyes looking around at the Cathar .. splendid in their form, she smiled. Iella is no prude, however she will remain dressed until she feels more comfortable.

The scent of Iella brought his face up from some of the merriment as he searched and found her. With a smile he motioned them both over to the seats as the rest looked for a moment or two, bowing their heads a little while going to the seats with large plates of the meat. Then the rest of the foods were being set out while Syn spoke. "Friends, pards members of the Thronnos Rocke.. This is Iella E`ron and Celtic Corcoran my padawans and students. Iella is also my Nimir-raj so treat her as such, now come we will feast to our hunters who succeeded in their blood hunt this day." He still kept a smirk to his face as the rest sat down and drinks were brought out for each. Sweetened water with several flavors to hide bitter taste one got from the alcohol, there was fruits and veggies added to go with the large portions of meat, breads and one of the hunters stood in the middle of the large table. Out of reach of everyone while Syn motioned to the seats.

Slowly the hunter barely a teenager gave a nod of his head before the feast started. Then the large Cathar from before handed him the roasted orange portion on the table as he took it up and held it. About the size of a basket ball and he started to eat it while the others watched. The jedi master looked to the two and spoke low. "He is partaking of the creatures heart, as the one who provided this feast and who has become a man. His ability to finish will determine his virility, will determine how mates perceive him."

Celtic remained quiet as she looked at all the food.. She shivered a little as Cathar male started eating the creatures heart. she had to close her eyes and look away as it was making her feel a tad bit sick.

Leading Celtic to the table and their positions next to Syn, she let Celtic choose her seat first. While she waited Iella, bow back to those that showed her the respect in so doing. The food on and around the table looked extremely inviting, the smell sending her stomach into a frenzy. She giggled to herself at this, one thing Iella does love very much is food. However, she would wait until it was time appropriate to partake. Her did how taste the sweet water placed before her.

Her Min Larel, introduced her and Celtic to the Clan and saying something she had not heard before tonight and she was curious. But she would wait, instead she watched the young Cathar's ritual and rite of passage. Secretly she hoped he would do well, so to impress the females and have a long happy life. However her eyes could not help but return to the food, the smell of the roast filling her and the fruit looked exotic and inviting, she had not seen sure fruit before.

She leaned closer to Syn and whispered, "Nimir-raj?, what is that name. I know you to be Nimir-ra, is there a connection?". She assumed as much but as is her want she needs clarity.

Syn looked on and then turned to see Celtic as he spoke offering his voice he heard Iella but for the moment. "Celtic it is alright, I should have thought about you. "He couldn't see her but he could feel it, the sight was uneasy for some but this was normal. He had had to stand there and do it a long time ago. Now his gaze came to Iella as he moved around the seats just to stand near her. "Nimir-raj is queen, your are the one I am with. Both as master and student and in my heart, I could think of no better name for you in the Cathar language." His head turned as the boy finished getting taken to a seat and with a drink the rest began to eat.

"Now we can eat and enjoy it, have as much as it is until you are full." The jedi master went back to his seat and looked at the two of them while he took a bite and had a drink. The small amount of entertainment was from some of the younger members who showed old battles between the clans. Detailing hunts and torrid love affairs between wayward pards. It was entertainment and tragedy could be good, it was fun while they recounted the current Nimir-ra's exploits then showed one from Syn's as a small child donned a sash and fought in the circle with one four times his size. winning by being faster then using (in this case blue streamers) lightning to have the old king submit.

Iella placed a reassuring hand on Celtic's shoulder as the child felt uneasy about the rituals, it was understandable, she too was finding it all overwhelming but interesting, the sight did not turn her stomach. The day had been long for all really, full of amazing sights and wonders and things to do, it was and is one of the best days of her life, one she will never forget. Her heart surged with warmth at his words as he explained the meaning of Nimir-raj, he had given her so much already, generous with his life and training, she would never take any of it or him, for granted.

She watched the entertainment, especially the boy enacting a history of her Master and Min Larel. A smile crossed her face, she never thought of him as once being a child, silly really, but all it served to do was create more questions about him, about his life. They still have lots to learn about one another, his life long and will be longer still, her's very short by comparison, but still there are things about her he will learn. She delighted in the though for a moment, knowing that their journey together had only just began and the knowing of each other, something to treasure and look forward to.

Iella waited no longer, and began to eat of the meat and vegetables, it tasted wonderful. Turning back to Syn, "What is this meat we are enjoying?", she could see the creature was big and the shape of it not known to her, there was no real indication of it's identity.
