Troopers in shining armor patrolled the streets under waving crimson banners as he studied history, art, science and etiquette at various preparatory schools. It was at such a school screening event he was marked as a force sensitive and taken away for training in the Sith arts. Although far from the brutal training acolytes endured under the more "traditional" Old Empire on the other side of the galaxy, young Thule had difficulty taking to the training of his new Sith masters. The concept of giving into his raw emotions, as opposed to calculated logic and reason, was anathema to him. Determined to rise above this challenge, Thule pushed through his training not through the strength of his body or heart, but of his mind. After completing his years of initiate training, Thule returned once more to the glittering spires of upper Coruscant, among the shining troopers and great waving banners. Rather than a source of wonder and inspiration that these sights filled him with through his childhood, they instead presented Thule with an opportunity. Now enlisted in the Imperial academy, Thule's combination of intelligence, ambition and force abilities brought him great success and praise, quickly rising through the ranks of his class. As such a star trainee, Ezekiel found himself under the examinations of the Imperial Intelligence division. Now faced with even more difficult challenges, the young man only seemed to excel even faster. The thrill of what was presented before him giving him a surge that he found he couldn't quite define. After graduating from the Academy, Thule was immediately assigned into service as an Imperial Agent, his success through schooling and status as a Sith, even as an acolyte, afforded him a bit more autonomy than many others. Ezekiel Thule now serves the reunited Sith Empire, rooting out those who would do harm to the rightful rulers of the galaxy. Equipment and Appearance A proud man of his station, Agent Thule commonly wears a stark white officers uniform with black leather belt, boots, and gloves, while a white cape adorns his shoulders on more formal occasions. He keeps himself clean shaven and his hair neatly groomed whenever possible. Each boot conceals a small, removable, double edged vibroknife. Twin curved handled lightsabers rest on his belt, their artfully engraved hilts contrasted by molded rubber grips. Skills Throughout his Sith training, Ezekiel was exposed to and educated in all forms of lightsaber combat, later choosing to focus on a combination of Makashi and Soresu. This defensive fighting style was most unusual for a Sith and he found it gave him an advantage not only because his peers were so unfamiliar with the style, but that it matched up well with his own personal style of studying an opponent and waiting for a mistake to capitalize on as opposed to overwhelming ferocity. Still, despite training regularly against sparring droids and other acolytes, Thule prefers to leave his weapons at his side and seek victory through cunning and command, steering those around him so that he never needs to fight at all. Thule also possesses the skills of an Imperial Intelligence field agent, including infiltration, computer hacking, interrogation, first aid, and weapons training. In matters of the Force, Thule is considered an average acolyte, barring an affinity for mind intrusions. He is adequately skilled in telekinesis and other core powers such as jump, speed, or pull. He has limited access to powers that require a deeper connection to the dark side, only being able to launch a weak lightning strike a few feet from his hand at best.
