Star Wars: The Cost of Hope
A long-forgotten holocron that wished it had been lost a bit longer.
Jolee Bindo was once a human Force-User who served the Jedi Order thousands of years in the past, his name all but lost to history. The details of his life have since been utterly lost to all but the most erudite scholars, but relics of his life have survived throughout the millennia, with perhaps none more important than his Holocron, a Jedi device with his personality imprinted upon it for the purpose of providing a record of Jedi Lore and training for future generations.
For a time after its creation, the Holocron was kept in the Jedi Temple, being accessed by those who sought Bindo’s unique wisdom or who might hope to gain some knowledge of the dark side or the Sith Wars. Accessed frequently during the Great Galactic War, given his experience with not only Exar Kun, but Darth Revan as well, the Holocron became of intense interest to many Jedi and Sith alike. At one point stolen from the Jedi Temple by the Sith, the Holocron changed hands numerous times over the centuries, until finally ending up in the hands of a cult of Revan, who believed that mastery over the Light and Dark sides of the Force would lead to ultimate enlightenment. Having little patience for such matters, Bindo’s Holocron informed them that the only way for them to achieve perfect enlightenment in this fashion was a series of increasingly punishing tests that, by the end of it, resulted in most of the cult either dying out, abandoning the cult to return to the Jedi, or striking out to find ancient secrets of the Sith, leaving Bindo’s holocron in their old temple, lost to the records of the galaxy.
