The Shadow Lady,
Joyful Arconan Consul,
Paragon of cheer.

With glitter and smiles,
she reigns over the darkness,
keeping angst at bay.

Weaponized color,
Multichromatic terror,
Blinding to the eye.

Lady with the gift
to make your nightmares come true:
plus, she's pretty hot.

Master of terrors -
disturbing illusions are
her bread and butter.

But that beauty, though!
Sometimes, it's too much to take -
Ronnie's ogling her.

Lover of Vorsa,
He set her aside to lead.
Our High Councilor.

Now he must decide:
Stay true to the Jedi way,
Or do what he must?

He pays for his choice
With the blood of his people,
Or with his own soul.

Textual submission

Looking down on all
Standing tall with regal poise
She carries herself

Cold, calculating
Killing only when she must
She takes no pleasure

She will never stop
You don't dare stand in her way
Selika will rule
