While on Yavin IV, I received communication from a Jedi that I thought was dead. I met up with him and another on the top of the Massassi temple. The two were Master Richi Haven (assumed dead) and Master Dardiel Spad. The last two remnants of NOJ. I greeted the two and started by asking the first obvious question and that was the rumors of Master Richi’s death. Master Richi answered my question by stating that the rumors were true but it took the help of some Jedi masters to rescued him from death. Master Jedi Richi Haven said that he contacted me to let many in the intergalactic systems know that the ancient Jedi orders are still intact and with many of their members attentive of what is happening in the galaxy.
If NOJ has been so attentive on what has been going on in the galaxy, where have they been all these years was the next question I asked them. Master Dardiel spad told me that he was on the planet Haruun Kal where he was born. He told he was in the jungles where he was managing well. Also I was told by him that there weren’t many of the old order members left. When asked where did they all go, I was told that some left to join other Jedi order and others have gone to be with the force. Which made me think of the old rumors of NOJ turning to the Darkside. Master Dardiel told me that those rumors were false at least to Master Richi and himself.
Master Richi and Master Dardiel Spad will continue to keep the legacy of NOJ alive and GNW will keep you posted if we learn anything new.
As we reported, that GFFR had two candidates running for the Chair position. The Candidates were Nyx and Tes. Yesterday, GFFR held their election and with an overall vote, Tes was victorious. A completed landslide. GNW was able to get a statement from the New Chair-Elect.
“I am shocked and honored by the amount of support from my fellow members of the Federation. I can only hope to repay that support and trust they have given me as Chairwoman-elect. I will do everything I can to follow the example that Chairwoman Tiplaria set as a leader and continue her work with the help of the Senate. It will be a team effort to keep the Federation strong and growing stronger, no one can do it alone. Over the next few days, I will be considering the Vice Chair and cabinet picks and I also hope to speak with Madam Chair about the next steps going forward with the current issues the Federation has.
In closing, I look forward to the future of the Federation and what we have coming up, and I hope we see some new and familiar faces in the meetings.”
Jayden and Raven were tasked to investigate a prisoner escape from our security cells. Somehow they abandoned that investigation and began investigating the bounty issue that the Hutts apparently placed. During their investigation, they learned that KOJ had become friendly with some of the Hutts. And this caused Jayden and Raven to get a bit bent out of shape.
You see, they have been gone a long time and only recently returned. So I can’t really blame them for not knowing about the Nar Shaddaa Accords or about the events of the Hutt Codex that our own Master Zen not only found, but opened in tact for them, which led some of the Hutts to return to the old ways described in the Codex. These Hutts turned over a new leaf and have been working to become honest entrepreneurs and business owners. These are the Hutts we have been supporting and are friendly with.
But Jayden and Raven were apparently unable to overcome their old prejudice and bigotry. They seem not to be able to accept that a sentient being can grow or change. That’s not to say all Hutts have made this change, and we of course will stand against any Hutt that chooses to do bad things. They could not accept that our embassy on Nar Shaddaa would allow for diplomatic attempts to resolve issues and could serve others besides the Hutts, as well. Had Jayden or Raven sought to ask about any of this, it could have been explained to them. But they chose to cling to their own closemindedness and keep their cups full.
They chose instead to reject their Jedi Council, abandon their Order, and turn rogue. They decided to paint us as if we are turning down a dark path. They tried to paint themselves as the defiant heroes, but only revealed themselves to be speceist and bigoted.
It’s not that surprising really, given some of their past deeds. For example, “Master” Jayden once gave a presentation that was entirely plagiarized from the works of our own Master Zen. He continually refuted any wrong doing even when presented with a word by word, side by side comparison, insisting it was his own original work when clearly it was not. Perhaps it was in part because of this, that they distrusted the work on the Hutt Codex and therefore could not believe any of the Hutts able to change their ways.
Whatever their reasons, their actions were not those of a Jedi. As a result of abandoning the Council and their Order in such a manner, they have both been stripped of any Jedi rank and titles. I would advise anyone to be cautious in any dealings with them.

“This news report from Master Jayden and Master Raven is troubling and full of inaccurate information. These two could have spared themselves a lot of trouble if they had contacted the proper individuals in question instead of listening to only one party’s side, and we can guess which that is. That of the separatist leader of the new republic faction. Their statement echoes that of the separatist leader’s own statements we’ve heard in the past. Targeting myself, targeting the Kalway Order. This so called investigation is nothing more than a smear campaign during our elections designed to influence the vote.
Two Jedi return from a long absence and instead of speaking with any sort of leadership personnel within their own Order, the Federation, or the Ascendancy at length, they repeat the same things that Valara Kira has spewed in the past. I can only guess that based on reporting from my informants within the separatist faction that these two former members of Kalway are agents acting on behalf of the separatist faction and it’s leader out of desperation since her base and power is shrinking and so she seeks to weaken the Federation and undermine it’s good relations with other groups.”
