Surviving the Order by Aikurisu Surviving the Order by Aikurisu
Catelyn’s disastrous final mission with the Jedi Order was ironically her salvation, despite that her long search for Jarred Fey nearly cost her life, at the hands of the Clone Troopers that served her on their uncharted journey to the forgotten planet, Elyssiel Prime. Her distrust of their ilk may have been what saved her in the end, however, even she could not put aside the strange sensation she felt over a mysterious entity she had believed was responsible for the utter destruction of her vessel, the Ruen’s Vantage, its mutinous crew, and everyone but herself that came far to uncover what she became stranded within.

She survived Order 66, but that was only the beginning of her story...


‹=================================================================∞¤¤¤◊○

Catelyn Esther, or rather her alternate existence in the Star Wars universe. =)

lol, though I haven’t really written a story for it yet, I’ve got a lot of information lined up already that explains her life as a Jedi, right up to when she becomes stranded on a planet that had long been forgotten by the known universe at large. Fortunately, she survives that. But in the beginning... well... this illustration is of her during then where she’s alone, fighting to stay alive.

Darn artwork was half the reason why I crashed last month and lost the inspiration to draw. But I've finally done it. Huzzah!

Not too sure about the lightsaber design for now either, but ah well... Comments and such welcome as always. =D

She looks totally like one of my role-play characters in Star Wars Universe - The Sixth Object.
6th is Empire's experimental bio-enginered human sensitive for a Force, which has number of midi-chlorians bigger even than Vader, but she cannot control her own power. She escaped from a Empire's laboratory and killed everyone in there.
She is sociopathic and has advanced paranoid schizophrenia :D Can I use this picture as an avatar for her?

Well... judging by the story behind your character, how did she even manage to become a Jedi? 0_o

You still can. I got a lot of support from friends to begin a story about a character of mine; "you can always edit later," is what they told me. I'm actually several chapters into it.

You should give it a go! You would enjoy it; it's as much an adventure to write it as it will be for the character to live and survive :)

This is seriously one of my favorite pieces on DA. You say you haven't written a story for it, but it really says a lot without one. Simply beautiful work.

Aikurisu Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you. Glad this piece resonates with you so well. =D

I can understand your view about this not needing anymore written story beyond what it has, yet part of me still wants to refine it some to allow people to understand better what brought Cat to this end. But then I guess that could be left for later illustrations... if I ever get to them.

I like this in the fact that not many people I've seen placed their characters in the post-Order66 era. Even my characters are placed in the Galactic War Era.

:iconaikurisu:
Aikurisu Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
That's understandable. With the given elements of Order 66, I guess a lot of people might have been a little reluctant to base their characters in such a turbulent era where freedom of choice was heavily restricted. Even I feel that way, which is why I made sure that Cat's fate lead her to a situation where she couldn't be hunted down by the Empire and survive on a planet that had been completely forgotten by the galaxy at large. And the story behind that... I've thought a bit about and already written some for, but I've yet to release it for anyone's eyes but my own. XD

Also, as much as I felt the prequel movies weren't brilliant for a lot of reasons, I still loved much of the lore during the era they were based in. That and I liked some of the tech during then too...

With TOR not long away, though... could be interesting to learn more about the lore with that era.
