Probably the same person over and over. They probably made changes to the bio so they posted it again.

Halcyon is a name of a Jedi Line that is more prevelant in the Later EU around the time of the Fall of the Empire, and Rise of the Jedi Order. After Order 66 it Shifts to the Last name Horn, but the Line is Direct.
Famous Characters from this family include-
Keiran Halcyon
Corran Horn
Valin Horn
Jysella Horn

As there is no mention in canon of this name being prominent during the old Republic I felt it a good tie in to how the force works in mysterious ways.

Mainly I was giving my reason behind the name, and why other may have chose it also.

I never heard of the Halycon family. Never really looked up Jedi stuff.

Name: Galatea
Middle Name:
Last Name: Nyx
Sith Name: Aradia
Nickname: Dia [Close Friends Only]

Species/Race: Arkanian Offshoot (Near-Human)
Gender: Female
Date of Birth: Late in 10 ATC (3633 BBY)
Place of Birth: Arkania
Age: ~20

Height: 1.35 Meters (4' 5")
Weight: 33.57 Kilograms (74 lbs)
Hair Color/Style, Facial Appearance, Eye Color, Body Appearance, Armor/Clothes:
Standing at only 1.35 meters tall, she is considerably short for even an Offshoot Arkanian, thought she carries herself in a manner that make it difficult to realise how petite she actually is. Her hair are a stark white, with no pigmentation at all while the slight hint of colour in her skin betrays Sephi heritage from some distant relative.

Her body is exceptionally symmetrical, although she is quite lean and wiry due to her physical training; her muscles are thin but strong, often making initial impressions of weakness until one actually sees the muscles flex.

While her body is noticeably petite, she is not entirely without feminine shape. Her hips are slightly larger as they lead down into her legs, but not overly so, and though her legs are strong and toned, they are not without their curves. Though her torso reflects the width of her hips, she has slightly smaller breasts than average, adding to her lean and sprite-like appearance.

If one does not look too deeply into her eyes, there is almost a sort of innocence etched into how her heart shaped face is formed. The jaw, though clearly having a squared element to it, becomes soft and rounded right along the edges, trailing down into a more rounded point of a chin. The cheekbones, though high in line, are soft and do not protrude too greatly from the face, unless one is given a sharp view from an off-centered point of view. As with the other elements of her face, the forehead is smooth with rather smooth brows that do not protrude much, though their sharp winged formation it noticeable and accented by her thin brows.

Her actual face seems just a little too large. The eyes are large and wide, their once light green tainted with the amber tones of a Dark Side user, while their creases blending in with the plane leading up to the brow, the lashes framing them are neither thick nor sparse though they are a bit long. They are spaced a bit closely to her nose, and while the nose itself is upon the slimmer side in width, it is raised quite a bit, making it seem large but not hawkish.

Like her other facial features, her lips seem slightly too wide, though this may be due to the fact that the lower lip is much fuller than the upper lip; the actual symmetry leaves the deep corners of her mouth touching about where they should below her eyes.

She wears an ornate circlet-like band that rests above her brow, which she never removed - it may not actually be removable, as it is either extremely tight or it's elements have been physically set into her flesh. At it's center is a disc made of Osmium, engraved with several Sith sigils while a small shard of Hiridiu crystal is set in the disc's center. Another pair of small Hiridiu shards rest on either side of the disc along with two Veda pearls. In equal intervals, Osmium Sith sigils are separated along their Osmium chain by either a single small shard of Ruusan or Luxum crystal, alternating between the two crystal types; even if refined together, the resulting crystals would not be large enough to be used safely in a lightsaber.

Leading away from each side of the central disc are two twisted strands of Osmium, each decorated with the same Sith sigils and Veda pearls. These two strands lead over and down the back of her head to a single intricate braid she wears at all times, at which point they separate and begin to twist independently down the braid, creating a sort of cross pattern over the hair.

Though her skin has remained pale, several Sith tattoos now mark her skin, blazing brilliant reds offset by black lining and accents. Her skin has also taken on a sort of darkened shadow, though it is not a pigmentation mutation, merely a reflection of her affinity to the Dark Side.

~Biography~
Among the Greater nobles families of Alderaan, such as House Thul and Organa, there are smaller, lesser known, less influential houses, more focused on the day to day operations of the people than the greater scheme of politics. One of the more prominent of these Minor Houses, as they were called, was House Deloy. The family had a reputation for aiding and housing refugees, feeding the hungry, hosting charity events, as well as having the largest database of knowledge on the planet, and their constant association with members of the Jedi Order. Shayara was born years before the Treaty of Coruscant, after the Battle of Alderaan during the Great War. Being the only daughter of House Deloy, Shayara's mother took a personal interest in her care, instead of leaving her with a handmaiden as she had her sons. As Shayara grew older, she was always seen as one of the boys, venturing our with her brother Vestin, Aurius, and Kyan, and getting in all sorts of mischief. She was tough, determined, and was absolutely capable of defending herself. She also was absolutely fascinated by the House Deloy archives, and by the stories that travelers brought, especially the Jedi that chose to reside at their estate while on Alderaan. There was one Jedi in particular, who was a recurring visitor of Alderaan, claiming that it was for the peace and beauty, as well as a chance to meditate on the mistakes of the past, since Alderaan was truly a sign of the past, after the Sith had attacked it. He had taken a great personal interest in Shayara, sensing early on that she was force sensitive. After many months, Jedi Master Lorik Maar took it upon himself to tell Shayara's parents that their daughter was destined to become a Jedi. The family could not argue, and could not say anything against this decision...in fact, they were immensely proud. Shayara was seven years old when the Jedi took her in, and Lorik Maar brought her before the Jedi Council on Coruscant.

They could sense a great power coming from the young girl, and saw it as a sign. She would be a powerful Jedi one day, and a champion of the light. Lorik asked from the council only one thing; that he be her master. It was a simple request, and the Council was quite eager to accept it, for it had been long since Lorik had a Padawan of his very own. Lorik himself was a mighty Jedi Knight, unmatched in lightsaber combat. He was aggressive, outspoken, and very decisive. The Council secretly hoped that training the young girl would held balance him out. As the years slowly passed, Shayara's fondness of knowledge was encouraged by Lorik, and she spent many hours in the Archives, learning as much as she could of other planets, and races, and the history of the Order. Lorik taught her to wield a blade, and the young girl often lectured her own master about how aggressive he was in combat, and cautioned him to think before he struck. Lorik merely laughed off the advice of his apprentice, for she had a tendency to point out ways that he could improve. Shayara's aptitude however, was not in saber combat, but in her wielding of the Force. Early on she displayed a talent for healing wounds, and protecting herself and others, and the Council saw her path...she was to be a Sage of the Order, a healer and protector of the weak and downtrodden. She grew to be a beautiful young woman, kind, and gentle, but spoke her mind quite often, for she had very strong opinions on just about everything, even the War. Lorik did his best to keep her away from the effects of the war, and refused to take her into battle on the few occasions that he was required to leave.

The war against the Sith raged on for many years, until Shayara was eighteen years old. By then, she was a reasonably skilled Jedi in her own right, and her Master was proud of her in every way. Shayara had many duties in the Jedi Temple that kept her busy while her Master had been away, 'Fighting his foolish battles', as she said to him many times. She aided the other Masters in presiding over the archives, proof reading and sorting the archives. Just as when she was a girl, much of her time was spent reading, and learning. It was not until the Treaty of Coruscant, and the sacking, that she would be called upon to fight. A holorecording came her, from back home on Alderaan. It was from her mother, speaking about the Treaty of Coruscant, and pleading to her daughter that she talk some sense into the Council, to make sure they did not give in to the demands of the Empire...but it was too late. The Sith attack on Coruscant came soon after, with Lorik rushing into the Archives to call for Shayara...the Sith were attacking the Republic's capital, and they had stormed the Temple. The fighting raged throughout the Temple, and everywhere else on the planet. Shayara was alongside her Master, fighting back the Sith for what felt like an eternity. They fought for what seemed to be ages, but in the end they were forced to retreat...the temple left in ruins, and most of the Council murdered. Two days the Sith held Coruscant in their hands, but the treaty was signed, the Republic incurred heavy losses. The Jedi were to leave the Capital, as many blamed them for what happened, and wanted to re-settle their lost home of Tython. Lorik and Shayara however, chose a different path, and left to Dantooine, once home to a great Jedi Enclave, many centuries ago. What they found instead of the peace they sought, was more war.

The people of Dantooine refused to accept the terms of the Treaty of Coruscant, and continued the war with the Empire. Lorik and Shayara joined the fighting, mostly for revenge upon the Empire for the destruction of the Jedi Temple. For many days the duo fought off the Sith with the Republic troops at their back, until a figure emerged...hooded and cloaked, his red lightsaber flashed with insane speed, and Master Lorik stepped forward to duel him. The fight raged on, as the others watched, a large circle formed around the two. Sabers clashed over and over, neither one gaining the upper hand, until finally, the mystery Sith took a chance for an advantage. Backing into the crowd, he killed one of the Republic troops with a swift stab, and relieved him of his grenade belt, and lobbed the thermal detonators at Lorik, detonating them all at once. In the confusion, he rushed forward, thrusting his saber, and pierced Lorik's heart. The dying Jedi used his last bit of energy to lock eyes with Shayara...and then he was gone. The young Jedi's rage was immediately apparent. She screamed with all her might, the sound not only echoing for miles, but throughout the very Force, heard by every Jedi on the planet. The entire circle of spectators were forced back by an enormous shockwave, and Shayara drew her lightsaber. The Sith rushed at her, and she quickly dodged him. The earth below them shook as enormous chunk broke off and was catapulted at the Sith, who sliced through it easily. He walked forward, through another chunk of debris, and another, until he stood within arm's reach of Shayara. Grabbing her by the throat, the figure began to crush her windpipe, cold, silent, and menacing. But Shayara forced a smile, and the Sith gazed down to see a lightsaber in his chest...Shayara had activated Lorik's lightsaber and plunged it deep into the Sith's chest. He let go of her and staggered back, surprise taking him. Shayara acted swiftly, ripping the saber from his body with the Force, and then charging forward, and swinging her own...removing his head. Cheers rang out around her, and the Imperials were soon forced to retreat as the troops began to fight even harder. Shayara stood at the spot where her Master died after the battle, and meditated for an entire week, without food or water.

She arrived on Tython another week later, submitting herself to the Council for their judgement. They accepted her deep apologies, but told her that the Treaty had not truly stopped the war...there were dark things at work. They dispatched her, like many other Jedi, out into the Galaxy, to fight the Empire wherever its shadows lie, to protect the Republic. It has been two years since then. Shayara has journeyed across the Galaxy, and met many in her travels, some shadier than others. She has also become a skilled pilot, engaging the Imperial Navy on many occasions in space, where her skill shined. A lot of close calls, and quick rescues have earned her the call sign Angel with the Republic, and sign of her ship, Hope, is usually seen as a good omen. She serves the Republic and the Jedi with unwavering loyalty...but the death of her Master changed her, and left scars that would never heal. The once kind and gentle girl now has another side...in a mere second, she can become fierce, aggressive, vengeful. Her attitude on the Galaxy is a lot more grim than it once was, and though she fights for peace, she does not see any peace for herself. By healing the wounds of the Galaxy, she seeks to find a way to heal herself of her own wounds...but whenever she looks in the mirror, she sees the scar upon her face, given to her by the Sith who killed her Master, and remembers what she truly fights for...

Biography:

Born as the firstborn son and heir to a duke on Onderon, Stannis never ascended to the realm of nobility like his father planned after the Jedi Order took him into their custody for training with the approval of his mother. A three year old at the time, Stannis was blissfully unaware of how his life had been changed dramatically, and it was almost a decade and a half later - when he finally passed the trials after serving as the Padawan to a Kel Dor Jedi Master named Olg-Dun - that he was allowed information concerning his parentage. The temptation to resign from the Jedi Order and take up his birthright was present in the young Jedi's mind for some time, but eventually his discipline and dedication to duty above all else ensured that he turned his back on his inheritance, which instead found its way into the hands of the younger brother he had never met. Instead, Stannis dedicated his life to the role of a Jedi Knight, eventually attaining the rank of master after training his own Padawan - a Nautolan by the name of Fey - to Knighthood.

Any happiness or satisfaction Stannis may have felt from his Padawan's achievement was not allowed to last, however. Whether by the will of the Force or simply incredible misfortune, two days after Fey had reached Knighthood the Jedi Temple on Coruscant found itself under assault by the returned forces of the resurgent Sith Empire. Stannis was offworld at the time, familiarising himself with the role of Chief Strategist aboard a Republic cruiser as it stood guard over the peace summit taking place at Alderaan, and it was there that he received the news that his former Padawan had died alongside hundreds of other Jedi as the capital of the Republic was laid to waste by Sith forces. It brought a bitter taste to Stannis' mouth when the Republic and the Jedi Council agreed to sign the Treaty of Coruscant. Since then the man - who was never an overly joyous person to begin with - has become even more grim and irritable than before, and rarely has time or patience for those he deems fools. In particular, since learning that a gun-for-hire bounty hunter had a significant role in the fall of the Jedi Temple, Stannis has grown particularly mistrustful of mercenaries and smugglers, no matter who they claim allegiance to.
