Title: Split Personality
Featuring: Verana/Darth Nox Some Act 2 spoilers.
Whats in a name?
Darth Nox sat crossed legged in her meditation chamber. Dark energies coursed through her very being as she dug deep within herself for the anger and hatred required for such meditation. It was times like these when Nox purged herself of fear and doubt to allow her to commune with her “true” self as she referred to it. A person who was both Nox and Verana, title and identity. Nox thought it was humorous that when the meditation was over Verana was still dead, but she could still feel her inside of her awake and growing in power.
Then Nox cringed remembering that beautiful teenage girl on Korriban, Nionah. It had been so long since she had heard that name, and she wanted to keep it that way. It was the very pinnacle of her failure, a growing testament that Nox and Nionah were still one in the same. But, Verana was still alive, wasn’t she? Nox wanted to believe she was dead, but she knew deep down that Verana was alive keeping the ghosts of dead men company.
Darth Nox feared Verana who was silently waiting in dark, who was trying to escape. To kill Nox.
However, her true self was whispering, whispering that Verana was still useful and without her Nox would die as well.
Nox got up from her meditation and left the chamber. “I will find a way”, she said to herself,” And, no one will stop me.”
This one isn't the clear cut prompt like normal. Instead I was inspired to write about a couple different names and explain what they mean to Darth Nox (or Verana). Verana has this issue where she is a soft one minute and cruel the next. She almost has this personality change in some moments where she thinks she is Verana or Nox. I really didn't take alot of time to write this one because I have been a little busy and I wanted to get one out to you all before I leave for Soccer.
