|Personal History|| Born to Owain and Jann Zor An on Coruscant. Artorius was originally planned to follow his father's footsteps in the senate. However, within eight months of Artorius' infancy the baby inadvertantly began to levitate objects within his room. Vastly concerned, his parents sought the aid of the Jedi. The council, sending a Jedi to observe the baby; felt a strong presence of the force within the child. When the Jedi reported back to the council it was deemed that when the child was older he would recieve training.
Training would begin when Artorius reached the age of six. Young Artorius protested as hard as he could to remain with his parents but his parents eaased the child's fears by telling Artorius that the Corusant temple wasn't far and that they would always be with him, but he had to now realize that he was living for a higher purpose now and no matter what came his eway, he had to be brave and act with courage.
Artorius remained on Corusant until age twelve. Learning the basic precepts of the Jedi Order. His education placing emphasis on mathematics, science, and philosophy. On Tython Artorius would continue his studies. Along with learning martial arts before being assgned a training sabre. Jedi Battlemaster Jor Ka Ri took Artorius on as an apprentice at fourteen. Jor Ka Ri was a formidable Jedi who had a legendary reputation of being a fair but firm master. While not an elitist, he would sometimes boast about training only the best. He would only do so to playfully raise the ire of his fellow Jedi Masters. Artorius trained inensively hard for six years. Accompanying his master on investigative missions that took the two of them to the farthest regions of space. Learning how to be civil as well as diplomatic as well as keeping calm in cases of hostility and crisis.
At eighteen Jor Ka Ri decided that Artorius was old enough to begin his trials. He was instructed to return to Tython and seek out Jedi Master Cyann Kaufani where he would be tested on the importance of Wisdom.
Master Kaufani's trial was a test of intellect. For alomost a week she test Artorius' knowledge of the force and its principles. Looking for logical answers to complex problems. When she was satisfied she instructed Artorius to travel to Jedda, where he could encounter Master Xon Du on the importance of Compassion. On Jedda Xon Du asked Artorius how to relieve suffering within the known galaxy. After three days Artorius presented a sufficent answer to Master Du, who approved.
Artorius' final trial would be on the planet Ahch-To for the Trial of Courage. It would be here where Artorius would face his inner demons along with his fears and doubts. Later on Artorius would explain his time on Ahch-To as his 'dark night of the soul'; finding this trial grueling, along with morally and spiritually crushing. On top of it all he had to meet his own master in combat which put Artorius through his physical capabilities. After a grueling combat session that lasted six hours, Artorius disarmed Master Ri. Satisfied with his padawan's progress Jor Ka Ri decided Artorius' trial was over. The following day Jor Ka Ri handed Artorius two crystals and instructed him on how to forge his own force blades.
Returning to Corusant, Artorius was granted knighthood by the Jedi council. He was given permission to briefly return to his family before setting out on his own. Soon afterwords, Artorius was assigned to the outer rim, being one of the limited Jedi to bring law and order to lawless settlemets. Engaging in battles against cartels, and bounty hunters. Making a name for himself as a knight errant that the underworld feared. As well as fighting for social causes and improving the quality of life for the poor and downtrodden.
As Order 66 was being executed, Artorius was ordered by Master Jor Ka Ri to cease all Jedi activities and go into hiding. Explaining in vauge detail how the senate were betratying the Jedi. For a year and a half he would recieve updates from his former master but grew incresingly concerned when the communications ceased. He travelled to Corusant incognito and learned of the destruction of the Jedi along the way. Fearing more he learned the fate of his family along with the remaining senate as they tried to make a stand against the Emperor. At his family's home artorius found a holomessage for him, explaining details of the fall of the Republic. His parents hoping for his survival and if this message was recieved, to seek justice for those who had fallen.
