Ambitious sith apprentice
Vergere’s early life was one of comfort and position. Being the only daughter of an up and coming nobleman on the planet of Mirial, she was afforded a variety of creature comforts. Her father who had made a considerable fortune by owning and running a shipping empire. This shipping empire provided millions of Mirialans access to a variety of foods, spices and oddities that they would normally not be exposed to on their desert dominated home world.
Her father’s ambition seemingly knew no bounds. He was able to successfully marry off his son’s to members of Mirials upper hierarchy of nobles, in turn increasing his station within the Mirial elite with each marriage. With all her father’s scheming and plans taking the lion’s share of his time Vergere was left to her own devices. She loved the finer things in life, fine clothes, lavish galas, and the finest droids to see to her every whim – her father’s wealth and status removed many obstacles from her everyday life. She had flirted with many Mirialan men but her heart had gravitated to the son of one of their grounds keepers. His giving heart, playfulness, and attractiveness all seemed to stir something in Vergere. They would spend many if not most nights together, share each other’s company, talking about lives that the other could hardly understand but they listened intently hanging on every word either way.
Vergere’s father arrived one morning with what he felt was great news for Vergere. He had made arrangements to have her married off to a Nobleman in the southern reaches of Mirial. Her father was thrilled at such a proposition as it would elevate him further among the elite. All Vergere could do was cry, knowing that her heart belonged to another. Her father not knowing what to do, left his daughter to her emotions, knowing she would come around to the idea. That very night Vergere and he secret lover made plans to put this world behind them and strike out on their own. They hastily packed some things, and Vergere siphoned off some funds from her fathers accounts to a private account to help them get started on their new life. Unwittingly she triggered some safeguards due to the size of the transfer. Vergere and her lover were confronted by her father, who quickly summed up the situation, and became enraged that his daughter would jeopardize his plans. As his blood grew hot listening to Vergere plead her case, and how she had found her true love, he struck her with the back of his hand throwing Vergere and her armful of possessions scattering to the floor. Her lover leapt forward to intervene but loud snap sound and the smell of ozone sent his body to the floor lifeless. Vergere’s father stood over her with the blaster pistol that ended her lovers life, leveled directly at her. “How dare you betray me this way? After all I have done for you, the life I have given you.” With that her father pulled the trigger, Vergere pulled up her hands defensively and the force intervened, sending the blaster round off its mark and into the floor beside her.
Her father locked Vergere away for what seemed like an eternity, her mind raced as to what would happen to her. It seemed like a week or more before her father even came to visit her. He entered the room with a large trunk that she was to pack her things in, and informed her that she will be serving this house in another way. He had made arrangements for her to study at the temples on Korriban, where she would become a master of the force. And when she returned she would help him eliminate his rivals. When she asked about her lover, he said that he was still alive, and would continue to be alive as long as she held up her end of the bargain. Reluctantly she packed up her things and did as she was commanded. It was through her training with the Sith that she was able to manipulate the force to see things through time and space, things that she was told are a glimpse into the past or the future, and with enough training she could master that skill. Her visions took her to that fateful night, the confrontation with her father. The vision told her things she couldn’t believe, her father had lied to her! Her lover had died from that blaster shot, instantly in fact. He was using her love for his a leverage to get what he wants. Vergere was overcome with anger, her studies went from studies of academics type pursuits to more carnal and physical pursuits. Honing her combat skills, learning to use the force to dispatch her foes quickly and with ease, the whole while tapping into her anger to guide her, empower her, and consume her. The ultimate thought in her mind, would be her homecoming, and just how bloody she would make it.
