The Jensaarai ("Hidden followers of Truth" - Sith language) is currently a Faction within the Soyak-Rainer Enterprises.
It is a Security Faction with religious tendencies toward the Jensaarai Force Tradition and will be the premiere ground defense force of the Avance Coalition.
It is currently comprised of Force Sensitives as well as non-Force Sensitives and has a distinct Rank Structure.
The Jensaarai was a Force Tradition that understood that to achieve the greater good, they would need to know the Truth. But what was truth? Was upholding the Jedi Order's ideals and using the Light Side truth? Was following the Sith Tradition the way? The Jensaarai surmised that neither could be proven and that to better understand the truth of the Force and the balance, that their Force Users would need to study both aspects of the Force - both Light and Dark. Once you saw and understood these teachings you could better defend the people.
The Combine Jensaarai will take that premise and put it into a security faction with a goal to defend the free peoples of the galaxy, often-times unseen. It will be made up of Force Sensitives, Jedi, Dark Jedi and non-Force users co-existing for a common cause. It will explore the 'Gray'-side of the Force.
However, the Force isn't the only structure within the faction. It will have a heavy military-like feel and will be kin to a traditional Mandalorian clan, adept at performing almost any job.
It will be led by the Avance Coalition. Thus the company's pay scale will be that of other SRE companies. The group's neutral stance on the Force, fits perfectly within the Government's stance of neutrality in Galactic Politics.
At this time, the canon 'Cortosis Weave' is not in the game and is not a unique item for The Jensaarai.
Faction History Edit
Benethor Draygo was a Vigo in Black Sun, in the Old Republic. Upon learning he was a force sensitive he became a Jedi and was trained by Garon Kresh a Devaronian on Coruscant. Upon the Empire's Jedi purge, Kyrian Kresh (Garon's twin) and Benethor escaped annihilation by pretending to be dead for 3 days on a very bloody battlefield by using a stasis technique and Force dampening.
After their escape, Benethor went into hiding to study. That is where he finds mysterious texts written long ago by two different Force Users that introduced him of the concept of the Unifying Force, that both sides of the Force could be used for good and evil, that the Force itself was neither good nor evil, and the bearer would use it for their own means. This led Benethor down the path of the dark side of the Force in a desperate attempt to learn new powers, trusting the manuscripts to guide him. He found that he could resist its temptations and use the abilities without fear of falling into corruption.
He searched for wayward Jedi, regardless of alignment and taught them the ways of the Jensaarai, a name he derived from the Sith language meaning "Hidden followers of Truth" and he became the first Saarai-kaar ("Keeper of Truth"). Unfortunately, the relentless Dark Jedi of the Empire, the Core and the Dark Empire hunted them down and again only Benethor Draygo remained.
Many years went by. It was then when he met Navik Ikron. Navik had been presumed missing by his own faction members, but out of the blue had suddenly reappeared, claiming to have come from a near death experience after crashing into an asteroid. His adventures had led him to the planet of Vendaxa where a mysterious artifact existed that drove people mad. Navik had recovered the artifact and had brought it to the planet of Abregado-rae where it would power an entire city on a volcanic island. Benethor designated himself as the guardian of the artifact.
It was on this island that he met Jojoban Mosque who became his new apprentice. Through Benethor, Jojo learned of the Unifying Force and presented him with several trying tests. The ultimate test came with a sacrifice, much like in the Sith tradition. However, Benethor's sacrifice was for Jojo and not for himself. Benethor sacrificed himself to destroy a powerful dark jedi, to destroy the artifact and to save his apprentice. Jojo became the heir of Benethor's legacy.
Despite Benethor's sacrifice, his legacy lives on in those that he had touched. His life was not a tragedy, but a celebrated form of life that lives in us all. To achieve the greater good you must know the truth and keep the balance. Trust the Unifying Force and the Truth will be yours.
The Jensaarai embody this belief and carry on Benethor's legacy, to protect the people - no matter the cost.

With the Creation of the Faction, two units were created.
|The Virryx Legion is the first legion, numerically and was formerly under another name and commanding officer (Chaac Selasis). With Chaac's departure to further his joint venture in D'Este Realty, Lyra Ikron took over and formed the legion. Under her guidance, she and her Executive Officer Revan Starcrasher have championed Virryx. With an Ikron at the helm and with Chiss accuracy, this Legion expects only the most competant to be of its membership. Asar Anchti is the current Commanding Officer.|
|The Drakkengard Legion is the second legion, numerically and was formed by Chuck Merell and Stradt Doombringer. This legion has been considered to have a more Mandalorian feel to it and due to no small part of having a true Mandalorian for an XO. It's commanding officer has (in his past) left a trail of destruction in his wake and his tenacity on the battlefield is renowned in all of SRE. Xrati Zee is the current Commanding Officer.|
|Clan Ky'bris is not a legion within the Jensaarai, but is a unit in its own right. Founded by Clan Master Stradt Doombringer, it is a clan of Mandalorian warriors who uphold the Resol'nare and the Mandalorian way of life. Comprised of members from all SRE factions, this unit is truly unique.|
|Centurion Arms is not a legion within the Jensaarai, but is a weapons producing faction. Founded by The Damned and led for years by Samuel Flagg, the company now is owned by Navik Ikron independently manned being led by Vansic Helranth. Soon Centurion Arms will be transitioning to Jensaarian Arms and will be considered a third legion under The Jensaarai.|
Other units may be created in time, but none shall have the prestige or direct impact as the two listed above.
If interested in joining the ranks of the Jensaarai, Force user or not, send a Darkness Message to Calyxx Zion or Saudii Zion. We have many members in the Armed Forces of the world and are quite military friendly.
