The Ex-Jedi will learn to be a people person again under Ahsoka’s observation.
The Ex-Jedi, whose name was not known to many, had been living in isolation for years. He had left the Jedi Order after the Clone Wars and had been wandering the galaxy ever since. He had lost his faith in the Force and in himself, and had become bitter and cynical. He had no friends, no allies, and no purpose. He was a broken man.
But one day, he received a message from an old friend. Ahsoka Tano, the former Padawan of Anakin Skywalker, had heard of his plight and had come to offer him a chance at redemption. She had been through her own trials and tribulations, and had emerged stronger and wiser. She believed that the Ex-Jedi could do the same.
The Ex-Jedi was skeptical at first. He had heard of Ahsoka, of course, but he had never met her. He didn’t trust anyone anymore, especially not a Jedi. But something in her message touched him. She spoke of hope, of second chances, of forgiveness. She spoke of a new path, a new purpose. She spoke of a way to heal his wounded soul.
So the Ex-Jedi agreed to meet with her. They met on a remote planet, far from the prying eyes of the Empire. Ahsoka was waiting for him, dressed in her familiar orange and white robes. She greeted him warmly, with a smile and a hug. The Ex-Jedi was taken aback by her kindness. He had forgotten what it was like to be treated with respect and compassion.
Ahsoka explained her plan to him. She would take him under her wing, and teach him how to be a people person again. She would show him how to connect with others, how to empathize with their struggles, how to be a friend. She would help him rediscover his humanity, and in doing so, rediscover his connection to the Force.
The Ex-Jedi was hesitant at first. He didn’t think he was capable of such a transformation. He had been alone for too long, and had grown accustomed to his solitude. But Ahsoka was persistent. She saw something in him that he couldn’t see in himself. She saw potential, and she was determined to bring it out.
So they began their journey together. Ahsoka took the Ex-Jedi to different planets, where they met all kinds of people. They helped farmers tend their crops, they rescued refugees from Imperial oppression, they even joined a circus for a while. Ahsoka showed the Ex-Jedi how to listen, how to laugh, how to love. She showed him that there was still good in the galaxy, despite all the darkness.
The Ex-Jedi was amazed by what he saw. He had forgotten how beautiful the galaxy could be. He had forgotten how much he had to offer. He had forgotten how to be a Jedi.
But Ahsoka never let him forget. She pushed him to his limits, challenged him to be better, to do better. She never gave up on him, even when he gave up on himself. She was his mentor, his friend, his sister.
And slowly but surely, the Ex-Jedi began to change. He began to smile more, to laugh more, to care more. He began to see the world through new eyes, through the eyes of a Jedi. He began to feel the Force flowing through him again, guiding him, strengthening him.
And one day, he realized that he was ready to face his past. He was ready to confront his demons, to make amends for his mistakes, to find his place in the galaxy once more. He was ready to be a Jedi again.
Ahsoka was proud of him. She had seen him grow from a broken man to a hero. She had seen him find his way back to the light. She had seen him become a people person again.
And as they stood on a hilltop, watching the sun set over the horizon, Ahsoka turned to the Ex-Jedi and said, “You know, you’re not so bad after all.”
The Ex-Jedi smiled. “Thanks,” he said. “I couldn’t have done it without you.”
Ahsoka smiled back. “That’s what friends are for,” she said.
And they stood there, together, watching the galaxy turn.
