"In the end we are one, and we believe sacrifice is necessary.The ends justifies the means. I, more often than not, agree. Peace and Balance in all things is the goal of every Kashi. For they know they are earned not given freely."
- House of Cerberus; Grand Guardian of Kashi XXII
The Guardians of the Breath were the ancient 'Kashi' mystics who were able to control what they called 'The Breath' 'while others called "The Force".' However, thought they share some simillarity with their Jedi counterparts. Their strong held belief kept no written nor physical records, as the Kashi believed it was blasphemy to keep records and journals of these skills in written form. They were instead kept in oral traditions: in line with " breath".
While many tens of thousands of Kashi sought to join the order each year, only a handful were selected for training. Increasing levels of ability and training granted the Guardians higher and higher "Levels of Attainment". Off-worlders who petitioned for membership almost always were imprisoned for life in the dark prisons of the Kashi Mer Dynasty.Who's fate were unknown and believe to have been used as offering to the Guardian Temples.
The Guardians specialized in uses of the "Breath/Force" into several different areas: One being that promoted the Plant Surge growth of crops or Force Healing. They also used the "breath" to grant them precognitive Farseeing visions.For strict use of upholding the Kashi belief in the defense of sacred cycle of life.
The Early years... Edit
Thru the duration of their existance the Guardians of the Breath had to occationally. As means of last resort, in line with their strict adhearance of their sacred belief regarding life. Exile rather than put to death members of their own Houses or citizense from Kashi. Those few who were tried and found to have commited the most graves of sins. Of these included some of Guardians who chose to instead invoke Cereberus, Lord of Chaos. Going against the sacred teaching of " The Breath" and later on banded together. Forming and lay the early foundating of what soon was to be know " The House of Cerberus, Grand Guardian of Chaos" .
Among their ranks rose Xendor, charismatic leader and was secretly not of their ranks. Assumingly believed been a Dark Jedi that infiltrated their ranks. He was the first to hold the title 1st Grandmaster, Guardian of Cerberus. And was instrumental in the successful thief of the Sacred Kashi Talisman. That later lead to both the Destruction of Kashi, when the planet when supernova. Wipeing out most of the Kashi Mer culture and the Guardians c.25,000 BBY. And with it supposedly the death of Xendor himself......
His minons and sucessor soon after set off to agressively round up as much if not all. Of what few survivors or refugees decendants that were left .
Once a good number of the survivors were rounded up they soon began the rebuilding process phase. Where in with the few that were found the followers of Guardian of Cerberus. Began their dastardly deed of force conversion and systematicly indoctrinating them into their Order.For the most part and those deem to be "highly gifted". Where segrigated and thru experimentation they tried to creat what was said be prophysised as the one....True Master Vessel . Who was strong enough to house the spirit of Cerebus and help bridge the gap between the living and spirit of chaos itself. And bring about their idea of nirvana.....where in with the sacred cycle of the breath broken. They in their own right would be able to hold sway over life itself and break open. The gap that divided Chaos and the neitherworld where in the hounds of Cerebus will be unleashed. And be able reign supream as it was foretold, from it's ashes their planet Kashi will again be renewed.With it come to pass the return of Xendor.......
