How did you discover your force sensitivity?
While meditating among my family, as is common among Cereans, I was able to reach out and feel the presence of each person in the room. When I asked my parents what this sensation was. They were knowledgeable about the Force, even though they weren't Force users, and recognized my ability and gave me the guidance I needed to improve it.
Describe a moment where you fell prey to your moral weakness or experienced a tragedy/horror that still haunts you.
During my walks through the Outsider Citadels when I was a young teen, I came across a gang of young men tormenting an even younger girl in an alleyway. My concern for the girl was overwhelmed by a desire to hurt those who were hurting her, and I threw myself at the gang. The sting of my defeat at their hands is with me to this day, but it pales in comparison to the feeling of power that hatred gave me.
How did you come to join the NJO?
After my Force sensitivity was revealed with my family, they sought elders more knowledgeable in the ways of the Force. After testing me and realizing my potential, they suggested I proceed to the NJO to further hone my abilities. While it pained me to leave my family, I promised them I would return, stronger and better able to defend the weak and bring justice to the wicked.
Name one NPC your character has a strong connection with. This could be a family member, a friend, a work contact, or a bitter rival.
My mother, Zoah, was always a role model for me growing up. She was a member of my city's Council of Elders and always had a way of finding a rational solution to help those in need. She spoiled me when she could, but always made sure to raise me into the best man she could. I would do anything for her.
[Optional] Describe a pivotal moment in your life where you demonstrated your moral strength despite adversity.
When I was very young, my family's home was robbed by an outsider. He must have thought I was asleep, as he chose my room to use as his escape route. Rationally, I knew I could scream and call my family to the intruder before he could escape, but something about his appearance made me bite my tongue. I could instantly tell how starved and battered he was. Instead of calling out, I reached over to my small stash of credits, everything I had saved up in my short life so far, and handed them to the thief. I'm not sure what happened after he left, but I hope he was able to make a better life for himself.
Oath: Life Itself
Andu has come to accept the NJO Code wholeheartedly, as it promotes his leading belief; all life is sacred. He strives to protect any and all life to the best of his ability. Though he would prefer not to, he recognizes that this sometimes means he himself may need to take a life to protect many more. He is still struggling to recognize when these times are, and will err on the side of caution more often than not.
Andu cares deeply for those around him. He is happy to listen to any problems that are brought to him, and will offer to help in any way possible. This often leads to inconveniencing or even endangering himself, but he continues to offer aid wherever he can. Sometimes, when Andu cannot rationalize or empathize with those causing others pain, he begins to become furious at them. He can normally keep this rage and hatred in check, but it occasionally comes out in the form of violence.
Andu seeks to bring those who violate the peace to trial and stands with those who choose to do good. While Andu strives to end conflicts amicably, he has seen too many fights to be naive enough to think he can end every one without drawing his lightsaber. In such circumstances, he attempts to cause minimal damage so the perpetrator can answer for their crimes.
Andu is a young, Cerean male. He wears a topknot and is not yet old enough to truly grow a beard. His body is more trained than most Cereans due to his combat instruction, and he certainly has more scars than an average Cerean from brawls in his youth.
