[SIZE=11pt]‘To Pass Unchallenged: The Legacy of Alema Rar,’ by Velok of Toola, is a minor work of Dark Side scholarship. It focuses on an unusual ability developed by the Dark Jedi Alema Rar. Rar cultivated a ‘slippery presence’ in the Force, to the point where she became intensely forgettable and very difficult even for other Masters to notice outside combat. Her skills appeared to be loosely comparable to, or an evolution of, an ancient Sith technique called [/SIZE][SIZE=11pt]Force Clouding[/SIZE][SIZE=11pt], which combined concealment of one’s Dark Side presence with the ability to appear insignificant. Rar could also create static to blur out her image in holocameras or droid photoreceptors. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]Rar developed these skills as a result of severe, disfiguring injuries. As with Velok’s other works, commitment is a guiding theme. While he does not advocate disfigurement, he notes that remaining unnoticed was a bone-deep need for Rar, and that anyone seeking to cultivate these skills should have deep motivation. The desire for concealment should be integral to the user’s personality. A bombastic, public, highly audacious personality, regardless of their talent in the Force, would likely find less success.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]Velok references his previous work - ‘[/SIZE][SIZE=11pt]Girawn, Sion, Calypho: Pain as Guide and Servant[/SIZE][SIZE=11pt]’ - noting that Rar’s pain and vulnerability played a vital role in her mastery of these techniques. A possessor of both books would doubtless find complementary insights.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]Velok chose to write in both Ancient Sith (Kissai priestly dialect) and Basic. As Sith is an information-dense language, full of compact idioms, a page in Sith will typically include illustrations, while the facing page will comprise the Basic translation. [/SIZE]
