((OOC-why, thank you my dear!))

(IC) Dak looks at Karae and says, "Well, we still have a good stretch of time. Up for a little more discussion, or would you prefer to rest?"

Nicah looks back to Dak, before her eyes roam the others in the room. "I'd prefer to train some, but I suppose more discussion would do at a pinch."

As her eyes come to rest on Zwie, she calls out "Remember Zwei.. some of us need a demonstration to your proficiency with more than just your mouth..", before she lets Dak escort her out of the room.

Dak calls on all his training to keep from bursting out with loud laughter. "Actually," he says as they walk down the corridor, "What I was hoping was that our discussion would lead to some training, or at least to a chance to compare our respective gifts."

Kidjim watches everyone's behaviour following Judu's announcement. Zwei's behaviour, again strikes him as odd, and to be watched, watching Nikah and Dak, he thinks to himself Humans and their mating rituals... they never stop... and shakes his head slightly bemusedly.
I wonder what's really going on here? We don't even know one another yet and we're the only people we can trust?? I don't trust these people... how could I? How could they trust me? There's got to be something bigger going on.

Zwie ignores Nicah. In fact he seems to be ignoring everyone around him. Or more accurately, he doesn't seem to notice anyone else is present in the lounge anymore. He just keeps typing frantically at his datapad, as if lives depend on it.

Nicah nods gently, wondering if Zwei will take her up on her offer.

"That makes sense.." she murmurs, before raising her voice. "So what can you tell me about the Gifts that you possess? Perhaps then, I can tell you if I possess any which match those, and try to explain the ones that I possess which you do not.."

Dax smiles; this is the first time he's been able to openly discuss the Force since he lost his Master. Calling on his training to maintain his calm, he begins.

"There are three main skill areas a Jedi is taught in order to utilize the Force. One must be able to Control the Force within themselves. One must be able to Sense the Force all around themselves. And finally, one must become able to Alter the flow of the Force in the environment around themselves. Within those three areas, there are a number of abilities one can attain.

"I personally have been taught how to Absorb and Dissipate Energy. This can be used in a number of different ways, from avoiding a sunburn to catching a blaster bolt in my hand, provided I'm attuned deeply enough to the Force. I can Accelerate my own Healing, Control my Pain, Detoxify Poisons that have been introduced into my body, and enhance a number of my skill areas to boost my abilities for a time. I can also use the Force to Concentrate very hard on doing something very specific, which has allowed me to achieve results in tasks far beyond what I could have done when left to my own skill level. All of those abilities fall under the jurisdiction of Controlling the Force within me.

"I also have the ability to enter a Combat Sense and a Danger Sense, both of which obviously help in battle. I can Detect Life as well as Sense a specific Life I may be tracking. I can Magnify any of my five Senses, and I can read the surface thoughts and emotions of people. That is much easier for people I'm familiar with, and easier still if they're not resisting-which should be obvious," he adds with a smile. "Those all fall under the purview of Sensing the Force in the environment around me.


"I can use the Force for Telekinesis." His face turns darker here and he looks down as he says, "I also know how to use the Force to Injure or Kill someone, although that way lies the dark side. Those abilities fall under the grouping of Altering the Force around me.

"There are also a number of abilities that bring two or all three of these skills together. I use my Control and Sense abilities to enter Lightsaber Combat, which makes me far more effective with my lightsaber than I'd be without it. This skill is what allows me to block blaster bolts with my lightsaber.

Of those that remain, I have been taught how to Control my Breathing and how to Affect someone's Mind. Both of those utilize the Control and Alter skills together." He looks back up at Nicah, an intense look in his eyes. "A Jedi must be VERY careful when choosing to affect someone's mind. You can simply slip an incorrect perception into someone's mind, or you can change their conclusions, memories, more. If one is not very careful they can cause some very serious damage to a person's mind, which again leads to the dark side. And once you've started down that path, it is very, VERY hard to come back from.

"That is the sum of my Force knowledge. It is nowhere near all I have yet to learn, which brings me to the hard part. It is MUCH harder to learn about the Force without a Master to show the way. Now, I do have all my Master's journals and data discs concerning the Force. I believe he was working to compile all his data to create a holocron. There are many personal notes among his writings, but I haven't had a chance to go through them all. I figured that as I went through them I would be able to learn at least SOMETHING more about the Force. I know there's so much he didn't have time to show me, and probably much more besides that HE didn't even know." He shakes his head. "I often times get the feeling that the Force is so much bigger than the Jedi OR the Sith ever suspected it could be."

Nicah nods as she listens to Dak.

Some of the gifts that he has sound similar to those that she possess, while she has others that Dak hasn't mentioned, and likewise, he has some which she's unaware of.

"Some of those are Gifts that I possess.." she admits as she reaches the door to her room.

"I can deal with energy, however I'd not like to try to deal with a blaster bolt.. I don't think that I'm that skilled.. I can also accelerate my healing, and use my Gifts to sharpen my focus on a task."

"As you can , I can also sense danger and use my Gifts to enhance my senses in combat, as well as magnifying my senses. I can also share the senses of animals to a degree, as well as modifying my own senses to extend their ranges."

"Again, like you, I can move objects with my mind to a degree, and I've refined that to provide me with some protection against weapons. As well as that, I can place myself in a states where my body and mind are at peace, one which reduces how much I need to eat and drink, the other gives me an enhanced connection to my gifts, but it can be dangerous to use.. I can also bolster my mind against anyone using Gifts against me, and recall short term events."

Dak's face lights up as she describes her abilities to him. "It sounds like we have a fair amount of notes to compare," he says smiling. "I tell you, I haven't been this pleased in a long time. I am very eager to compare our styles side by side. I'm always willing to learn new abilities and new ways of doing things; you never know when you'll find a way that's better than the one you currently employ."

Nicah nods, but then her face grows serious.

"What do you think Judu meant, when he warned us about agents? Does he suspect that someone on board isn't what they seem, or do you think that it's it a larger picture that he's concerned with?"

Dak's expression mirrors Nicah's. "Frankly, I suspect both." He gestures around the room with both arms. "None of us really knows each other. We're all virtual strangers who have been thrown together and are expected to trust one another with our lives. Personally I'd trust you more than anyone else here so far, but that's because you're being open with me, discussing pasts and abilities with me, and taking the time for us to get to know one another a little before we have to start fighting alongside one another. I can't say the same for anyone else here; in fact, that Zwie character strikes me as someone who might be more than they seem; this pompous arse act of his might simply be a ruse to throw us off the scent of his true nature." He shrugs and adds, "Personally I intend to remain cautious around all of them, but I will still defend any of their lives to the end, if necessary."
