The ship landed on New Jedha and Lubbock groaned as he sat up holding his head. "What was in that stuff?" he winced. "HEY Lub!" Leone shouted in his ear, causing him to jump. "Whaaat!?" He snapped, accidentally hovering off the ground with the force. "W-what the heck!? Tatsumi, cut it out!" He yelled.

"Not Tatsumi's doing, this is." Yoda's voice said. "We all got that Farce power stuff!" Mine bragged. Tatsumi facepalmed, "It's the FORCE!"

Lubbock flopped down on the ship floor and blinked, "Whoa really!? Now you're not so big and bad Tatsumi, are ya? We all got it!" He cheered as Tatsumi sweatdropped.

Luke led them to the temple where the spirits of Obi-Wan, Yoda, Anakin and Qui-Gon awaited them. "So it seems you have all finally accepted the Force." Obi-Wan said.

"Always had the potential, you did." Yoda said.

"But because you doubted it, it took longer than Tatsumi." Anakin said.

Qui-Gon nodded, "Now, we have to start teaching you how to use it properly."

"Whoa wait! We can't just start kicking ass?" Mine blurted.

Luke smiled, "It's about more than that. You have to be disciplined, I know you're all assassins but please try not to...overdo it."

"There is such a thing as neutrality when you're a Jedi." Anakin smiled. Tatsumi was confused, "But you said...when I was gonna go after Thrawn-"

"You were blinded by rage, being what is known as a Grey Jedi is different." Anakin said.

Obi-Wan smiled and looked over at Qui-Gon, "Some would even say you classify as one...Master."

"Some would say that, yes. But a Grey Jedi follows their own code, one that takes a middle road. I merely tried to bend the rules of the Old Jedi Code to fit the situation." Qui Gon explained. "However, there is one on the Planet currently who would be called a Grey Jedi."

"Really? Who?" Tatsumi asked before he heard someone else walk into the room to meet with everyone.

"There is no Light without the Dark, through Passion I gain Focus, through Knowledge I gain Power, through Serenity, I gain Strength, through Victory I gain Harmony. There is only the Force." Ven recited. "My ancestor who was a Jedi, then a Sith, then a Jedi again, somewhat laid the groundwork for the Grey Jedi to build on. But since my mid teens I've been... procrastinating in the ways of the Force and the Grey Jedi, because I too had doubt, in myself." Ven stated calmly.

"Wait, if you procrastinated, then you're not a strong force user?" Lubbock asked.

"His ancestry gave him the talent. But Ventus fell away from the practices of the Force, because he felt himself inadequate amongst true legends. In truth, he's right around your level Tatsumi." Obi-Wan explained.

"I look forward to training with you all, and I'd like to ask if... you guys got room on your team for one more?" Ven asked sheepishly.

"Awww come here!" Leone said pulling him to a hug, for the fun of it she pulled Tatsumi in a hug as well. "Of course you can join our group! You'd have to talk to the boss about it first though."

"It's been under discussion with her." Ven stated, "is she always this hugging?"

"She can be, yeah." Tatsumi said with an apologetic smirk as Lubbock turned green in the face. Mine rolled her eyes in a huff as Akame gave a thumbs up.

Anakin escorted them to the courtyard to train, "Given your uh..line of work, I think it's appropriate that we focus on some of the more universal aspects of being a Jedi, including the combat and being in tune with the Force."

"What do you mean 'neutral'?" Akame asked. "Well I mean the whole idea about being a Jedi and not using your abilities to outright attack but defend...that's kind of out the window since you're all assassins. But you should at least be aware of the dark places you should try to avoid, despite, again, the line of work." Anakin said.

"The Dark Side of the Force will muddle your thoughts with aspirations of power and authority....even using those who you care about against you, as it did me. You all already tread the line..but you are doing what you do for a good cause...that's why we're teaching you from a more middle ground."

"You don't think any of them would actually go down a bad path do you?" Najenda asked skeptically.

"No, I don't...but then again neither did I think I would. They need to be wary of it at least." He turned to them as they all sat down on the grass in a cross legged position.

"One of the differences in teaching that my son has incorporated into his Jedi Order? The idea that the Force is neither good nor evil....nor are the abilities it grants: It's how they are used and with what intent."

The members of Night Raid sat at attention, like good students..though some were 'getting it' better than others. "The reason myself, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and Yoda are able to appear before you however...is purely something of the light."

"The Shamans of the Whills taught Qui-Gon a secret ability that he later passed down to Obi-Wan and Yoda and finally it came to me naturally as I died. The ability to live eternally through the Force itself."

At their wide eyed expressions, Anakin turned to Tatsumi. "That is why your friend and brother Bulat, was able to appear before you in the temple that day to encourage you, Tatsumi. You all carry your comrades with you in some fashion...that is why now that you have all finally awakened your sleeping potential-"

"We can finally appear to you!" Chelsea, Sheele, and Bulat's voices said in unison as they manifested next to Anakin.

Bless them how they jumped! Mine was in shock at seeing her friend Sheele once more and rushed to hug her, Tatsumi, in seeing Bulat once already, simply gave him a high five before going to see Chelsea.

She of course, had one thing to say to Tatsumi. "Sorry I screwed up and traumatized ya by having my head on display like that." She said smirking. "Whatever you're learning here, try not to get a'head' of yourself."

"Really Chelsea?" Tatsumi said with a chuckle as he hugged her, with Leone hugging him from behind and hugging Chelsea as well. "A joke in greeting?"

And so it went, the living members hugging the dead members. None were more emotional about it then Akame. She silent assassin lost her composure and cried during each greeting she had with them. Tears were flowing from her blood red eyes and the mutterings of "I'm so sorry." Were heard from her shaken voice.

"Come on guys don't be so down on yourselves!" Bulat said. "Now come on! I want to see some of ya train in the force a bit!"

Thus the day of training began, as Tatsumi and Ven were sparring under Luke's supervision, Yoda was standing on Lubbock's foot whilst he was standing on his hands and trying to move a rock with the Force..

"Concentrate you must!" Yoda said, "Lift the rock, feel the Force flowing through you!"

"I'm trying here!" Lubbock stated as he was slightly distracted at watching Leone, Mine and Akame doing an unarmed sparring exercise together blindfolded, to learn to use the force to 'see' for them.

"I almost gotcha! Ow!" Leone said as Akame flipped her over. "No fair you must've heard me!"

"That's what I'm saying! It must be whatever the Empire did to enhance her senses." Mine muttered, wishing she had Pumpkin as Akame heard her and prepared to tackle the Pinkette next.

Next up: Lubbock and Leone would spar with each other one on one using training sabers. Leone grumbled about not being allowed to use Lionelle the whole time. "Come on, I can't use Cross Tail either!" Lubbock rolled his eyes at his comrade's complaints. However, Lub got a wee too carried away and ended up thrusting the end of the saber...directly between Leone's cleavage.

Lubbock blushed and Luke facepalmed as the green haired boy had the nerve to say: "Uh...did I just win?"

Leone instantly turned into Lionelle and broke the training saber upside Lub's head. "YOU WON A TRIP TO THE INFIRMARY!!" She roared.

= After Lub's recovery =

Obi-Wan had taken them to the simulation entrance. "Luke, I never told you much about my life as Padawan to Master Qui-Gon or my life during the Clone Wars. You are welcome to watch as they go through some of the...most haunting parts of it. This lesson should offer some insight into the galaxy's history...as well as my own." Kenobi nodded as Night Raid entered.

Luke stood outside next to Kenobi, "Ben, I really appreciate you letting me see this."

"Think nothing of it, Luke. It's just I don't like to think of some of the moments they are about to witness and take part in."

Inside the simulation, Night Raid was watching a very young Anakin Skywalker being freed from slavery to a gross looking being named Watto.

They saw Obi-Wan as a young apprentice and the then living Qui-Gon facing a man with red and black skin with multiple horns on his head..wielding a double lightsaber and fighting them throughout a palace.

Night Raid watched as Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon became separated via energy barriers. Obi-Wan had to watch as his master struggled against Maul until he was overwhelmed and impaled before Kenobi's eyes.

"I'll have to admit, that Watto guy gives me the creeps." Leone stated as Lubbock shushed her whilst eating a bag of popcorn. When the fight started up with Maul everyone was on their seats.

"Wait that's a double bladed lightsaber?!" Tatsumi asked in shock. Then most of Night Raid winced and yelled in unison as Qui-Gon was impaled in the simulation. Tatsumi nearly sank to his feet in shock.

"If you could tell, it was because I was alone, and Age was getting to me." Qui-Gon, sitting next to Tatsumi in his spirit form explained. "Maul was a capable Sith."

Tatsumi nodded as Akame pointed the attention back to the simulation.

"Obi Wan's now fighting him." She said. Indeed, the younger Obi Wan seemed to hold his own against the Mysterious Maul. He even destroyed his Saberstaff and evened the odds.

"Whoo! That showed him!" Leone shouted. "Cut his head off!"

"That's what I should have done. However, I did something else instead." Obi Wan explained as Maul force pushed the Obi Wan in the simulation then kicked the dangling Obi Wan's saber into the abyss.

"That's a loooong way down." Mine said as she sweatdropped a little.

"Please, if Obi Wan had something like Cross Tail he'd hoist himself back up." Lubbock said, but still looked invested as Maul began to shower Obi Wan with sparks, to try and force him to let go.

"He'd be unarmed." Akame explained. The group realized he had a point. Even with the Force Maul had the upper hand of being armed with a lightsaber. "He'd be cut to ribbons unless he went for his master's weapon."

Night Raid then realized Akame was right and watched what happened next as Obi Wan jumped up and called Qui-Gon's saber to him as Maul was cut in half.

"Well, he's half the man he used to be now. Good riddance to that bad guy." Leone said, snickering at her pun as Maul fell to the abyss.

They saw the Clone Wars begin with Obi-Wan discovering a mysterious clone army commissioned under the deceased master Syfo Dias's name. They learned that the Clones were replicas of the then young Boba's father: Jango Fett. They saw how Anakin and Padme were lovers in secret and got married and how Anakin lost his hand in a duel with Obi-Wan against the traitorous Count Dooku aka Darth Tyrannus.

During the War Anakin was given a pupil in Ahsoka Tano, who seemed annoying at first...but as they watched: she grew on them as she demonstrated her skill and improving prowess. Then the shock came in learning Maul's origin as a member of a planet known as Dathomir which was female dominated (a fact which brought a smirk to Leone and Mine's faces...maybe even Chelsea too!) And the males of the planet known as Nightbrothers were slaves to the magical cult of Nightsisters led by the eerie Mother Talzin.

There was a cyborg called General Grievous who led the Separatist armies..but was also a slimy coward who hunted Jedi and kept their sabers as trophies.

"I have mastered your saber arts! I collect my trophies from your comrades' corpses! And I use your own techniques against you! What can you do against MY power, Jedi fool!?" The General wheezed at Ahsoka as he slashed up Clones left and right. "You can fight against clones...but wouldn't you prefer a challenge?" Ahsoka taunted. "THAT WOULDN'T BE YOU!" Grievous shrieked.

"Yeah! Girl power!" Leone shouted and high fived Chelsea and Mine. Akame couldn't care less as she ate a steak. Tatsumi and Lubbock sweat dropped about the nightsisters and their culture.

"I'm so glad Esdeath isn't here with us. If she caught me and heard of this culture, she'd possibly format it to her own clan ideals." Tatsumi said, sweatdropping.

"Yeah, and if she managed to be a force user too, she'd fall to the Dark Side pretty quick." Lubbock got a bonk on the head from Najenda to shush the boys. Then General Grievous appeared, and Mine shrieked when she noticed his eyes looked way too organic.

"Kill it with fire! It's horrifying!" Mine said in a scared voice when she realized she jumped onto Tatsumi's Arms. "Let me go, you idiot!!"

Ashoka and Grievous dueled in the meanwhile, apparently a Droid they brought along was a spy. In the background an actual ally Astro droid of blue and white dueled the evil droid in the background of the duel.

"Hey look! That little guy is giving that traitor what for!" Leone shouted. "Get him little guy!"

A beeping sound interrupted her. "Eh?" She noticed the same droid next to her. "Wow you're old!" She said in surprise.

The droid only beeped in response and continued to watch the simulation archive.
