- Description: A group of talented Fallanasi practitioners, able to unite their minds and skills to use their talent to aid the Mandalorian Empire.
After attempts at creating stealth fighters and other stealth craft for the Mandalorian Empire, General Kaine had reached an impasse, where technology could take their purpose little further. Upon dealing with the skilled, capable and dangerous Baiko No Kaho, Fallanasi practitioner, Kaine became aware of a very different and very powerful method of cloaking a vessel and its crew. The approach, however, was not easy.
It took months before Kaine was able to convince a single Fallanasi adept to even hear him out. In time, by acting with integrity and honesty, and by proving with his deeds that his words were not hollow, others were eventually convinced to give the concept their effort. Finally, a group of twelve adepts was collected, and so they made their pact with the Mando'ade.
The adept chamber contains a neural interface, allowing up to twelve Fallanassi to link their minds as one. Should one mind be overwhelmed it can be disconnected from the collective consciousness, to avoid neural shock. If the interface is damaged in any way due to power overload or other external force it will be disabled to prevent injuries to the Adepts using their Talent.
The main use of this talent is to cloak the carrier named Black Star in an illusion, capable of defeating sensor and sense alike. Such a talent when utilized by several adepts working together is extremely difficult to detect. Only a skilled practitioner of the Force, familiar with Fallanasi techniques, or an Adept of the White Current, would be capable of even sensing that something in the vicinity was hiding, let alone what it was. Someone extremely strong in the Force, an experienced Master, would be able to sense that something in the vicinity was "wrong" somehow, or "not right" but nothing specific beyond that something might be trying very hard not to be seen. Seeing that something is definitely hiding would require knowledge of Fallanassi techniques or actual practice with the White current. Only a concert of Fallanassi would be able to overwhelm the Adept Circle's manipulation of the White Current and fully penetrate the illusion.
A solemn pledge was extracted from Kaine, that not only would the vessel not have any offensive weapons, but that it would only be deployed in the most dire of circumstances against the most evil and pernicious of enemies. Kaine agreed wholeheartedly, not wanting to disrespect the Fallanasi tradition of non-violence, and humbled that they would go even so far to aid the Mando'ade. This tradition is heavily enforced throughout the ship, with weapons kept under guard, and well away from visibility, concentrated only in the hangar bays.
Empowered with such a monumentally exotic method of cloaking their unique vessel, the General, though diplomatic skill and patience, with the assistance of his new Fallanasi brothers and sisters is able to provide the Mandalorian Empire with a near invisible carrier, capable of matching anything the galaxy had to offer.
