Inducted into the Order as a young teenager, Hal was placed under the tutelage of Jedi Master Ulysses Stark in the hopes that a firm hand could guide him to control his instincts. To suit the boy's reckless, careless attitude, Master Stark often took him along on missions to the Outer Rim, where he could sate Hal's lust for adventure while also teaching him valuable first-hand lessons about the Force. Stark took him to places where lawlessness and cruelty were common, only to show him the difference a Jedi Knight could make by leading through example. He taught Hal how little victories, such as finding a child's lost pet, was just as valuable as overthrowing a despotic ruler or by disrupting a band of pirates. For many years, the duo were inseparable. Then things went terribly awry.

On a mission to Ryloth, Master Stark was slain by a group of marauders, and Hal was captured and sold into slavery. He served under various masters, many affiliated with the Five Syndicates, over the course of two years. The young Jedi remained resolute, and refused to let his will be broken by his captors, but couldn't prevent hatred from growing within his heart. After toiling away in the spice mines for months, Hal and his fellow slaves revolted against their Syndicate masters, and the teen was able to exact revenge against those who had killed his mentor and enslaved him. Delving deep into the Dark Side, Hal slaughtered most of the compound, taking out his former captors and their enforcers. He expected the act to bring him relief, but he found no solace in vengeance, only a howling emptiness within his soul.

Now a fully fledged Jedi Knight, Hal still struggles with the vestiges of darkness that linger within him. Though he feels unworthy of his rank, he knows that one day he could become a truly great Jedi... so long as he bewares his heart.

Reckless, headstrong, and untrusting towards authority, Hal would hardly be considered the archetypical Jedi. He routinely shows a skewed perception of doctrine, and has noticeable difficulty controlling his emotions. Hal remains a charismatic leader, a witty negotiator, and a talented warrior, all aided by his handsome appearance. What surprises many, however, is how caring he is. Hal possesses a good heart, and despite his "ends justify the means" attitude, truly believes that the Jedi Order is a force for good.

Hal is very open about his brushes with darkness - he doesn't see the need to conceal the conflict within him, so that through the wisdom of others he can overcome his doubts. He feels a personal responsibility to help other Jedi who struggle with the Dark Side find the Light, even though his own journey towards redemption is far from complete. However, Hal has consistently proven unable to overcome the trauma he endured while he was a slave, the memories of which still haunt him every day.

As of late, Hal has also been prone to bouts of anger and frustration, all of which stem from insecurities within himself. He's disappointed in his lack of progress as a Jedi, and furthermore how he's failed to overcome his inner demons. More than anything else he wishes for more power and more control over himself, so that he can save others from suffering the way he once did. Such desires could easily lead down a dark path if left unchecked...

Hal is a talented warrior whose martial skills are honed to an edge. He's an aggressive, kinetic duelist, utilizing the strength and speed of Form V to overwhelm his foes. Though he's hardly invincible, he's certainly more than competent. What he lacks is a refined connection to the Living Force, and the attunement to utilize it precisely during combat. Hal uses the Force like a hammer - blunt telekinetic pushes and pulls - rather than as a needle - and can be outmaneuvered or overpowered by an experienced Force user.

Xalkaia: Hal's former padawan apprentice - a relationship that he views as a failure. He wishes that he could have been a better master for her.

I wasn't very happy with my previous bio, but I still liked the character, so I've made some pretty drastic changes to this sheet.

I've completely overhauled the format, changed his backstory, and slightly altered his personality. All of his gear, his attributes, and his strengths from the old bio apply, and if anything he's been given more weaknesses to compensate. If there's any problem with that, let me know and I can revert the changes.

Edit 9/8/20: Made some other changes to bring him down again power wise. Just seemed more interesting that way.
