    What is it like to lose a parent? What is it like to lose a loved one? There are no words for such a tragedy. The only solace one can give themselves is that their death was quick, or that they died with honor. My father got neither of those things. My father did the unthinkable. My father took his own life because he was ashamed. Ashamed of himself, ashamed of his family...ashamed of me. My mother tells me it isn't true, that he could not fight with the demons in his own mind...but I know the truth.

    It is no secret that my father wanted a son. He had three children trying to have one. Why didn't he adopt one? Save us all the trouble? Maybe he was too stubborn. Too full of his own pride. Only he could say. The only thing I know for sure is that he raised me much in the way he would a son. I'm not complaining. I like who I am. I never blamed my father for the time we spent together. I just wish I could have been enough for him.

    You see, my sisters were not warriors like I was. I am the youngest of three. I guess my father got tired of waiting and decided to train me instead. My eldest sister, Cynthia, became a well respected doctor in the capital city. Cura, the middle child, started out on the same path but found her love in the sciences and now works for a private firm making medicines. I love my sisters. I really do. But they don't share the same responsibilities that I do. I knew growing up it was my duty to make my father proud. I was the son he never had.

    Now, all Mandalorians are trained to be fighters. We can all handle a blaster or a knife. It is custom to know combat and always be ready to defend yourself or your loved ones. But not every Mandalorian has the drive and thrill that us warriors have. The bloodlust if you will? I don't like that word. Can you edit that out...?

    All Mandalorians are trained to be fighters. But not all of us are warriors. I hear the call to fight. To take action and stand up for my people. I am a proud Mandalorian. Today I wear my father's armor as my own, as is custom with our people. We pass down our Beskar'gam, our Iron Skin. It saddens me knowing the reason for his passing, but I do not let it show. I do not wear his shame. My father wanted a warrior. I am that warrior.

    I'm getting married today. I don't know why I'm so nervous. It's just a few words. But it's forever you know? His name is (( Malagith Warleera )); He's from House Eldar like me. He's sweet. In an overwhelming kind of way. But I saw right through his gruff exterior. A man like that will protect his and his own. That's what any woman should look for yeah? Malagith works in a mercenary unit with other Mandalorians. That's how I met him. I was iffy about doing mercenary work, but it pays well. And it supports the cause. Plus, I get to go to the coolest places. I'll tell you about it sometime, Pa. You wouldn't believe all the amazing things I've seen.

    Ok anyways! Back to Malagith. We've been working together for close to a year now. He lost his family, kind of like...you know. We both agreed this marriage will work for us. I know I'm going into this not really looking for love...and that's alright. It's all a part of the code: contributing to the clan's welfare and raising the future generations. But I don't think we'll be having children anytime soon. Our lives are just too busy right now. Him being a pilot and all. I just hope it pleases you, Pa. I know marrying him will help everyone see us as worthy again. Being at his side will open doors for me. You know how much I hate feeling like an outsider. He'll treat me right. This is a good thing. Right?

    It's been five years since my you left me. I've grown so much. There are so many things I wish I could tell you, Pa. I just fear, there isn't time. The Sith did it. The Empire.....they......they killed so many. Medriaas, a refugee home for many of many of our farmers, was bombed today. They whole planet....the scans still show fire.

    I know this means war. I've been receiving messages from Malagith all day long. They're calling us home. Calling us to fight. I will do so for the glory of my clan and house. But....things have been hard enough with Malagith these past few months. We don't...see each other as often as I'd like. But we knew that would happen. It's still hard ya know? I'm worried about him. I'm worried about my family. I know they'll will be safe back home on Mandalore. Still, I fear for them. The Empire has proven to be ruthless. What's to stop them from bombarding us next? I------

    Life Day! A holiday that originated with and is celebrated by Wookiees on Kashyyyk. And how do us Mandalorians celebrate best? By hunting down a group of Imperial Slavers and wrecking their campsite and saving a horde of Wookies and being heroes and oh my gosh it was all so wonderful! Oh those Feir'Fek Imps didn't know what hit them! Me, Dio, Arturo, and this Di'kut Twi'lek were all there blastin' 'em and shiz. They didn't stand a chance! I wish you could have been there Malagith. You always miss the best fights.

    Anyways. So we scored some serious loot from those Imps. Got enough to buy myself a wrist-flamethrower. You know how badly I've wanted one of those right? Yeah they're illegal and all, but hey. We're at war now. This isn't just some mercenary scheme to get credits. This is life and death stuff now. I have to be at my A-game. Next time I see one of those Imperium bugs I'm going to remind them what fear tastes like. I'm going to show them that when you play with fire...you get burned!

    Malagith is dead. This will be my last post. You probably will hear some rumors about me. They're true.

    Sorry it's been awhile. I had a few things in my life to take care of. Anyways. I'm sorry I haven't written to you. My video diary's kinda been collecting dust as of late. I'm not sure what even made me want to pull it back out again. Maybe it was my way of telling you things are alright. I was...a little lost for awhile. So yeah. Guess what? I'm getting married again. I know the last thing I said was Malagtith had passed on, but it's been awhile for me, Dad. He's so sweet to me. You remember me telling you about Arturo Solus, Dio's buddy? Well he's been taking care of me. He helped me through Malagith's passing and now he's going to promise himself for our future. I'm going to be joining Clan Solus now, Daddy. I know it would make your proud....
