(note: this takes place before the Jedi Council meeting where Alida addressed the Council) Adan Caudell headed away from the inn. Behind him, he left Alida D'med Reineach and her husband, the Telosian guardsman. He had hoped that Sgt. Reineach would see reason. Yet, he realized, he would do better to speak again with Mrs. Reineach. She knew the dangers of a Force sensitive child being raised away from the Jedi influence. Or at least he hoped she knew. What was it about the Telosians that kept her there? Yes, he was well aware that she had become 'property' when her word had been broken, but she was Jedi; or had been. Why had she given in so easily? Was there some allure to the life she now led that kept her from seeking assistance from the Jedi? Surely the sergeant, who was not even Force sensitive, could not be enough to keep her from her service to the Force. She was no longer the same woman who had departed Yavin, from what he could see. She, a Jedi of the Old Order, fully trained and having trained in her turn, allowed her husband to speak for her? He expected that from the product of a backward society, but not from a Jedi. Adan shook his head. At one point, he had thought that he was getting through to Sgt. Reineach. When he had mentioned the possibility of the sergeant's son growing into someone like Darth Vader, he had seen a pause; a concern had blossomed. Then it was gone and the man had firmly refused to even consider sending his son to Yavin for proper training. And the former Master D'med agreed with him? They were purposefully leaving their son open to the Darkness that existed on Telos. It only proved once more that Alida D'med had truly fallen. Had she gone entirely to the Darkness? Just as Master Rintala's unborn child needed to be raised in the crèche, so did Alida Reineach's son. Just as Master Rintala's unborn child needed to be raised in the crèche, so did Alida Reineach's son. It was for the children's own safety, to keep them from the Dark Side, and for the good of the galaxy at large. As he reached his speeder, a thought came to mind: if the Master had fallen so far, what of the Jedi student who now resided on Arridor? He'd heard rumors of a son being born to the woman there. It was time for the Jedi to do once more as they'd done in years gone by: send a team to investigate the possibility of a Force-sensitive child's birth and bring them back to the Temple for training. Maruko and Rory perhaps had the best handle on the attitudes of these people. They would make a good team to send to Octavia Jinn Kyrsk.
