Competition: Character Development: Motivators

Finished
Character Development: Motivators

Specifics

The Dark Brotherhood is littered with Dark Jedi, Grey Jedi, and Light Jedi. Each character has a reason or reasons for why they have become the person they are. What motivated you down the Dark Path? Why have you forsaken Jedi and Sith to walk the middle road? What events in your life led you to the Light Side of the Force? This is your opportunity to flesh our your characters back story and motivations without worrying about the traditional fetch and quest prompts of Fading Light.

Platform

Word, Doc, Google Doc, body of an email. Whatever, as long as I can open it and read it.

Details

750 word minimum. 15,000 word maximum (The Shad-atty rule). I'll use the Fiction Grading Rubric to judge submissions. You are free to write in any style and on any topic as long as you attempt to address the "motivations" prompt.

Preface:
I wanted to keep with the character development I've been doing with Kincaid over the course of the Crusade and Fading Light, and felt his current reasons for being what he is aren't really his own. Everything has been forced on him by Jac. So, I've skipped ahead in time a bit.

This story takes place prior to the (eventual) Great Jedi War centering around Korriban. Though, in terms of where the DB currently is on the timeline, the events of this story have yet to take place, I will eventually add it to the character's canon and work it into whatever fictional events come up in the GJW.

Hopefully this clears up any potential misunderstanding. This was exactly the kind of character-driven prompt I wanted to write for... it just came a year or so earlier than I wanted :P
