    Game History

    Deveron is Margaliís elder twin and a rarity in the Family. He is extremely powerful.

    At a young age Deveron realized that the Family was very insular and found that it wasnít enough for him to merely be a smuggler or pirate all his life.

    The Family sent him to the University of Coruscant where he met Anna. Deveron was very young and in love when he met her and was heavily scarred when the non-Family marriage ended in a bitter divorce years later.

    He went back to school and got his Doctorate before moving on. This is not a happy time in his life and he does not talk about it, and it is because of her that he is now a loner, not often becoming involved with those outside of the Family despite that he forgave her years ago and went on with his life. Anna effectively drained all the youth and vibrancy out of him, and the Family was shocked at the change in him by the time he divorced her.

    Several years later, he and his once teacher, his uncle Jacen, were traveling the Rim Worlds together when they accidentally became embroiled in an Imperial action on Troyan. They were mistaken for sympathizers and used their abilities to escape. They were identified and rewards posted. They wound up hiding with the underground for several months unable to leave. The group was sold out and Jacen died in the assault. Deveron managed to escape Troyan and with the help of the Family, return home. The Empire suspected he was a Jedi from the reports and placed a bounty on his head.

    Over the years, Deveron traveled extensively, acquiring knowledge and picking up information for the Family on occasion. When home, he would teach the children the use of their psionic Laran, and sometimes, he would take a special student with him when he left in order to give them further training. His nephew Derrin was one such, and the two formed a strong bond.

    Derrin and Aldeberonís half sister, Janin, was captured by the Empire and taken to Bíyss by Darana Cairnfell for Sith training. Through Janinís mind, Darana had be≠come aware of the family and contacted Mirand, the matriarch of the Family. As part of a deal, the Family sent an observer to make certain Janin was well treated. Mirand and the Patriarch chose Deveron. Deveron arrived and immediately found he and Darana had much in common. She exerted herself to be charming, and showed an interest in laran. Over the next few weeks as he watched Darana, learned more about her through the laran training bonds, he found he was tired of his solitary existance and he thought they would deal well together, so he proposed to her.

    The Family reaction was strong. Deveron was unique among them, and highly respected, but never quite understood. Deveron had always done things his way, and the idea of bringing a possible enemy into the Family was unprecedented. Deveron argued his case to Mirand and Levar, and seeing he would not back down, with great hesitation, Deveron was allowed to present Darana to the Family. Darana made a good impression, calming their worst fears and they were married in a triple ceremony with Star and Sylviar.

    Deveron is of the Family, but has always been apart from the Family. Occasionally a student would help fill his yearning for someone to share with, but the students always moved on. Darana accepted his proposal for the same reason he offered it to her, both had something the other wanted or needed, and they were compatible. He came to care for her and her son Michael, but was aware that she could one day jeopardize those he loved and that he might have to kill her, or be killed by her if the Emperor demanded it of her. Despite this, Deveron grew to love her. Darana too had developed emotions for him, and so Deveron told her of an old Comyn custom, di catenas, a Darkovan form of marriage stronger than the Freehold style they had used. She agreed, and through the catenas the two became laran bonded.

    Although the marriage went well the higher profile of the Family in the Empire made it difficult for operations and within a few months things became much too hot. A Family meeting was held and the Family Jumped out of the galaxy to search for a new home in the Unexplored Regions. Deveron went along knowing the Family would need his power to find a new world. Unfotrunately he had not foreseen how long this would take.

    Darana filed for divorce in the Empire after the first two years. They had long since been out of contact over the enormous galactic distances. Five more passed before the Family finally found a suitable system of worlds and Deveron's patience was at an end. Deveron requested permission to return to the Empire and his wife, and the Family had little choice but to let him.
