Star Wars - Rise in Arms
Most likely discovered at birth to be Force-sensitive on her homeworld of Devaron, Sian Jeisel was turned over to the Coruscant Jedi Temple for training in the ways of the Force. Entering into the academy there, Jeisel eventually went onto graduate and become apprenticed to a Jedi Master. Passing the Trials of Knighthood after years of study, the newly knighted Sian Jeisel continued independent study as a Guardian within the Order.
Attaining the rank of Master after years of intensive study and work for the Jedi High Council, Jeisel was an active member of the Order when the conflict between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems erupted into all out war. Away from Coruscant at the time of the First Battle of Geonosis, Jeisel was disenchanted with the Republic, believing it too corrupt and not worthy enough for the Jedi to sacrifice their lives.
Invoking her Right of Denial, Jeisel refused to answer the High Council’s call to arms and instead remained abroad, gathering together with other like-minded Jedi. Initially, the High Council begrudgingly accepted this choice by a number of their ranks, but it soon became clear that if these members fell to the dark side of the Force, the ensuing schism would break the Order. Summoning representatives of each breakaway group to the estate of Jedi Master Sora Bulq on the moon Ruul, Master Mace Windu wished to open talks with each of the leaders and hoped to persuade them to join the war effort.
Sian Jeisel responded to the summons, meeting with other dissident group leaders such as K’Kruhk, Rhad Tarn, Naia Sendar and Mira. While some members of the group were wary of Windu’s impending visit, K’Kruhk soothed their fears as Bulq and Windu began to discuss the terms of their return. However, unbeknownst to the dissident leaders, Sora Bulq had fallen to the dark side and was in league with Confederate leader Count Dooku. When the Dark Jedi Asajj Ventress attacked Bulq’s estate per the Weequay’s plan, the dissident Jedi engaged her in a fight. After killing Jedi Mira, Ventress seduced Jedi Tarn to the dark side. When Tarn turned his lightsaber on Jeisel, the Devaronian Jedi was forced to kill him in self defense. Convinced of Bulq’s turn, both Jeisel and K’Kruhk agreed to return with Master Windu to Coruscant, where they took up the rank of General within the Grand Army of the Republic. She also recieve a new padwan at that time, a gifted Kargul male by the name Gatoulis (:P)
Siege of Saleucami
As the war dragged on, Jeisel found herself assigned to the campaign on Saleucami. Under the command of Councilor Oppo Rancisis, Jeisel proudly fought Morgukai clones during the five month engagement alongside fellow Jedi Knights Xiaan Amersu, Aayla Secura and Naia Sendar well as Masters K’Kruhk and A’Sharad Hett; though she butted heads with Master Quinlan Vos, a Jedi she, as well as many in the Order, believed had fallen to the Separatists.The siege was won in Saleucami and Jeisel, Naia and K’Kruhk were reassigned to aid Master Ki-Adi-Mundi on Mygeeto.
