"Some bastards are more popular than others. I'm not interested in having my own empire, though, or in leading the galaxy to perfect peace. What I want is more personal." Galactic peace hadn't been something she'd wanted even as an idealistic teenager, after all, though she'd played with the idea as Vader, staring at her daughter in the Imperial Senate.

"It comes to power, nonetheless."

"In the end, yes."

"The ends are what matter."

"What do you seek?"

Permalink

"Some quiet."

Permalink

"Not much different from peace, really."

Permalink

"And no easier to achieve."

Permalink

"Generally not."

Permalink

"It would seem that we share a goal, at least in part."

She needs to remind herself she can't just trust random past Sith because - the Force seems to think she's somehow Elesse -

"It does seem that way."

"Why were you sealed away?"

Permalink

"I lived through the height of the Sith Empire, and the beginnings of its fall. I sealed myself here to await a more propitious era."

Permalink

"Things are currently less chaotic than that. The new government replacing Sidious's empire isn't finished, yet, and there's still tension with the Galactic Empire's leftovers, but - currently it seems like the galaxy is stabilizing."

Permalink

"How fortunate."

Permalink

"What would you do, with quiet time?"

Permalink

"In my era, I was a keeper of lore, ancient mysteries, secrets of the Force. I would find and catalog what has been discovered while I slept."

Permalink

"Much of that was in the Jedi Archives, which - were interfered with. Regathering everything will be a project, though it sounds like one you're looking for."

Permalink

"Yes. My collection of Jedi texts is limited. I look forward to expanding it."

Permalink

"Would you otherwise interfere in the galaxy at all? If granted quiet and archives."

Permalink

"Only if the galaxy interfered with me."

Permalink

"It's more likely to if you introduce yourself as 'Darth Occlus' to people. The only known user of that title in living memory was Darth Vader, who is - poorly liked, most places."

Permalink

"Occlus, then."

Permalink

She nods.

"I'm willing to give you access to what archives I have, and occasionally assist with searching out others, so long as you don't interfere with me or mine, and so long as any information is made available to me and my students as well." (This decision is... An unfortunate amount influenced by the little voice whining 'Elesse' in the back of her head. But she hasn't been able to significantly organize the Jedi texts in the five years since her - un-fall - and... It'd be helpful to get Luke to read something, ever. And Leia might even accept reading assignments from Ani, for all that she won't accept training.)

('Leia and Ani sometimes spar, and Leia tries to kill Ani while Ani tries to correct her form' doesn't really count as training.)

"You do not fear I will corrupt the information?"

No because you were an amazing teacher, and I didn't deserve you.

"It doesn't seem your style."
