I tried to create a world that could summon its own future, free of one man’s vision and the perversions of a prophet’s words. Free of a future predetermined. I guess destiny had other plans.
The Skywalker, born Jedi Bendu, was the founder of the Order of the Jedi Bendu of the Ophuchi, which was partially named after him, and the first living mortal being to discover and tap into the mystical energies of the Force of Others. After doing so and facing off his darker temptations, Yahweh, the God of the Universe, spoke to him at the peak of Mount Sky and dubbed him The Skywalker. Yahweh revealed to him that the Force of Others was his own omnipotent presence and that he had allowed it to be sensed by mortals to help in the salvation of the galaxy. Yahweh tasked The Skywalker with freeing his chosen people, the Ophuchi, from King Achab Tahrea of Had Abaddon, The Skywalker’s step-brother.
During the battle for paradise, The Skywalker was given the unfortunate task of being the first man to kill in the name of the Force of Others, taking the life of his step-brother. As the battle raged on, however, The Skywalker and the Ophuchi prevailed and found themselves in the midst of a mass exodus from Had Abaddon. They boarded many small starships and fled to the Promised Land, the neighboring world called Kal'Shabbol. There, they officially created their order and set up the first Jedi Bendu Enclave.
Before his death, The Skywalker spoke of and recorded many important prophecies that would later echo throughout the ages in the actions of many notable individuals. These writings later became known as the Prophecies of The Skywalker. His contributions to the very early formation of the Galactic Republic, the Jedi Order, the Bendu Order, the numerous Sith Empires and the Order of the Whills were remembered for thousands of years throughout the universe, even on the most primitive of worlds in galaxies far, far away from his own.
Seventy-five thousand years before the formation of the Galactic Republic, a young couple lived on Ashlan Three. Their names were Jupiter and Ami, and for a time they were not a happy couple. Ami had been a prostitute for years, one of the few in her village and the neighboring villages of the world. Jupiter was frequently intoxicated and sometimes would beat his wife when he discovered her with other men. However, as the years went on, they eventually grew to love one another and conceived a child. Nine months later, Ami gave birth to a baby boy whom they named Jedi Bendu. Even as an infant, his actions showed them that he was different than most other infants.
Jupiter and Ami both knew that they would be unable to raise a child full of such potential, as they could not offer him the life he deserved. Therefore, they decided to bid farewell to their infant son. They knew that he would have a better life on the nearby world of Had Abaddon, as they had heard stories of the planet’s kindness and the riches that it had to offer. One night, Jupiter stole a small technologically advanced space pod that he referred to as the “capsule to the stars” to take his son to Had Abaddon. When the time was right, Ami placed her beloved son into the capsule and broke down in tears in Jupiter’s arms. The thought of never seeing her son again was unbearable to her, and she did not know how she would be able to cope with the thought that they had abandoned him to be raised by a family that was not truly his. More than anything else, Ami feared that Jedi Bendu would not be loved, as she thought he would be perceived as nothing more than an outsider. However, Jupiter assured her that it would not be so. Ami was blessed with a newfound faith at that moment, trusting in her husband’s wisdom.
As one lone tear ran down Jupiter’s eye, the loving parents stepped away as the capsule slowly came to life. The primitive vessel would take some time to reach Had Abaddon, though the child would be safe until then. Jupiter knew that the God of their people would not allow his son to be harmed, as his destiny was far greater than that. After the vessel left, Ami gave herself much needed rest. However, Jupiter had no time for rest. He felt as if God was channeling himself through him, foretelling a great event in the life of his son. Pulling a scroll and a writing utensil out of a small basket, Jupiter fell to the floor and began writing down what would one day be an important historical artifact: the Prophecy of the Traveler.
After months in space, the capsule carrying the infant Jedi Bendu landed on Had Abaddon. He was found by Queen Persia, the wife of King Melchizedek whose family had ruled over the world for hundreds of years in a long-lasting and beloved dynasty. Persia found a small parcel inside the pod and found that the boy’s name was Jedi Bendu. Persia brought the infant to her husband and they decided to adopt the boy, making him the step-brother of their son Achab Tahrea. The two boys were raised side by side and, despite the fact that they knew that they were not really brothers, they felt as if they were true brothers.
For nineteen years, Jedi Bendu and Achab Tahrea grew up side by side. They went on numerous expeditions and adventures together throughout the planet, forming a bond of trust and brotherhood that would have made anyone believe that they were truly brothers. However, during their last expedition together when Jedi Bendu was nineteen years old, they came across a slave labor camp. When they returned to the palace, they asked their father who the slaves were and he told them that they were nothing but hermits and demons that had shown strange powers and frightened the citizens of the planet. It was the king’s intention to use them as slaves in the cities surrounding the palace so a closer eye could be kept on them. Achab Tahrea could not help but agree with his father’s decision, just as he always did.
The idea of people being slaves did not sit well with Jedi Bendu, as he knew full well that he had also seen himself perform strange feats. Therefore, he could not help but feel as if he had something in common with the slaves. On early morning, Jedi Bendu packed a few of his necessary belongings and left the palace without anyone knowing. For months, he wandered through the plains in a solemn hermitage until he arrived at the base of Mount Sky, the largest and most dangerous mountain on Had Abaddon that no one had been able to fully climb. Before climbing up, however, he decided to turn back to speak with the slaves. If he was somehow related to them, he had to know before he made any decisions as to how to proceed with his life.
After a week of travel, Jedi Bendu arrived at a slave camp and infiltrated the individual areas disguised as a slave. After a few days of waiting and learning about the slaves within the camp, he revealed his identity to one of the slave elders who told him that they were members of a tribe called the Ophuchi. The elder spoke about their religion and how they had been granted an extraordinary gift by their God. The elder looked into Jedi Bendu’s soul and saw that he too had the God-given power. When he learned of their religions tales, Jedi Bendu felt angry and sad that his own people were being used as slaves. One fateful morning, his chance came. One of the guards became angry with a slave for no apparent reason and beat him to death. Jedi Bendu watched what happened and was furious that it had come to murder. In his anger, he murdered the guard. However, the other guards and the other slaves saw what he had done. In order to avoid persecution, he fled the camp and was chased for weeks to the bottom of Mount Sky.
When he began to climb, the royal guards, and his angered brother, turned back as they believed that the mountain would kill him faster than they could. Jedi Bendu was determined to not be killed by the mountain’s fury. He had hoped that he would be able to rescue his people from persecution, but in the end he found himself persecuted. Convinced that the answers were somewhere on the mountain, he continued his climb. During his ascent, Jedi Bendu was confronted by two aspects of the great power. The first power, a lighter side, allowed him to bathe in righteousness and nobility. He named this aspect the “Ashla”, a word that meant “bringer of hope” in the ancient Ashlan language. However, the second aspect was the life-taking one. It quickly responded to what the Ashla had done and called out to Jedi Bendu. He named it the “Bogan”, a word that meant “bringer of death” in the ancient Ashlan language. The Bogan sought him out in an effort to twist his mind into doing evil deeds, increasing the energy of death in the galaxy. However, the Bogan had not yet learned the ways of seduction, so it could only try to compel Jedi Bendu to comply. Jedi Bendu refused, proclaiming that he did not fear the Bogan and would not betray the Ophuchi to personal temptations. The Bogan tempted him until he reached the peak, at which point it realized it failed and quickly diminished its strength. This act brought balance to the great power, giving the Ashla its rightful title as the true way.
After succeeding in both of his tests of faith and determination, Jedi Bendu reached the top of Mount Sky. As far as he knew, he was the only man to have ever done so. When he looked down upon the plains of the planets, he watched as the sun set below the horizon. He then heard a deep voice coming from above him. As he looked up, he saw a face form within the light of the Ashlan Nebula. Jedi Bendu knew at once that it was the voice of God. God spoke to Jedi Bendu and told him to remove his shoes, as he tread on holy ground. Jedi Bendu obeyed, then waited quietly. His heart beat fast and he covered his face with his cloak to avoid being stung by the harsh cold, though along with the cold he felt a strange warmth. God finally spoke and introduced himself as Yahweh, the God of the Universe spoken of by the Ophuchi. Yahweh had heard the groans and cries of his people who were enslaved by the royal family and tasked Jedi Bendu with rescuing him. When Jedi Bendu asked how, Yahweh told him that he would have to find a way to lead the chosen people off of Had Abaddon and into the Promised Land, a planet called Kal’Shabbol.
Jedi Bendu did not believe in his own ability to lead the people of Yahweh into their new home, but Yahweh assured Jedi Bendu that he would always be with him. Jedi Bendu still did not want to go back to the capital. He continued making some excuses, but Yahweh had an answer for every one. Finally, Jedi Bendu accepted his task and was dubbed by Yahweh as one of his prophets. From that day forward, Jedi Bendu would be known as “The Skywalker”, as he was the only mortal man to ever walk on the holy ridge of Mount Sky and live to tell the tale.
As The Skywalker made his way down the mountain, he knew he could not return to his family unprotected, especially after murdering one of the guards in the Ophuchi slave camp. He stopped near the metal deposits in the mountains, gathered the strongest alloy he could find and created a fire to forge himself a sword. When completed, the long blade was named Excelsior and would forever be synonymous with The Skywalker.
When The Skywalker returned to the capital, he learned that his adopted father had passed away and that Achab Tahrea had become the King of Had Abaddon. This worried The Skywalker, as his brother was far more arrogant than their father had been and had supported their father’s move in holding the Ophuchi as slaves. Despite the risks involved, he requested an audience with his brother and it was immediately granted, despite the supposed crimes he had committed. When he was brought before his brother, The Skywalker explained who Yahweh and the Ophuchi were and said that Yahweh had promised to give those who were blessed with his power a home of their own. The Skywalker then told his brother that he was the one who was tasked with bringing them to their promised land. Therefore, he formally requested that all of the slaves be turned over to him. Achab Tahrea refused, saying he knew nothing of such a God and would certainly not do what he said. He then ordered that the slaves be prepared for their assignments so they could be shipped out across the world within the following days.
At first, The Skywalker was in despair. When he was brought back to his prison cell, he managed to disable the guards before the doors were locked and slipped out into the nighttime plains. There, he shouted for Yahweh’s attention, telling him just how worried and disappointed he was. Yahweh formed a face within the Ashlan Nebula once again and swore that his promise would be kept. Because Achab Tahrea would not obey him, however, Yahweh vowed that many hard lessons would be brought upon the monarchy. It would also allow the Ophuchi to realize the unlimited power he possessed.
Though reluctant to unleash terrors upon the world he had called his home for two decades, The Skywalker returned to the capital, armed with Excelsior, and told his brother that if he did not obey Yahweh and set free the Ophuchi, all kinds of misfortunes would behalf the capital city and the surrounding areas. Despite the threat, Achab Tahrea simply laughed and refused to pay any attention to the grim warnings. The Skywalker returned to the main Ophuchi encampment and spoke to the twelve people who were most attuned to Yahweh’s omnipotent presence, which The Skywalker had named the ‘Force of Others’, and told them about the plagues that Yahweh had planned to unleash. The twelve were grateful that they had a future that was within site, but they were more amazed by the fact that The Skywalker had actually spoken with Yahweh on the mountain. Before leaving, The Skywalker proclaimed the twelve to be the “Twelve Sons of The Skywalker”, stripped them of their slave names and gave them new names. The names were Adam, Josiah, Somus, Shamus, Malachor, Ussej, Annikin, Luke, David, Matthew, Andrew and Benjamin.
The Skywalker and his twelve “sons” returned the capital and watched as Yahweh kept his promise. First, the rivers ran red with blood. Second, frogs came jumping out of the foul waters and hopped everywhere, into the houses, the beds, the ovens. After the frogs, The Skywalker and his sons returned to Achab Tahrea who said he would allow the Ophuchi to leave so long as the frogs were gone. With The Skywalker’s word, the frogs disappeared. However, as soon as the trouble was over, his brother laughed and called him a fool for believing him. After Achab Tahrea broke his word, Yahweh sent stinging, whining gnats and fat buzzing flies. Each time, Achab Tahrea promised that if the plagues were to disappear he would let the Ophuchi go. Every time the plagues disappeared, Achab Tahrea laughed and changed his mind. Animals were killed, storms brought destructive hail and a plague of hungry locusts came like a black cloud and devoured the crops, but Achab Tahrea still refused. Then, the land was plunged into darkness for three days. Still, Achab Tahrea said no.
After the total darkness, Achab Tahrea flew into a rage and told The Skywalker and his sons to leave forever, as he never wanted to see them again. The Skywalker said that there would come a time when they would no longer have to see each other, but that Yahweh first had one final plague that would eventually cause Achab Tahrea to let the Ophuchi go. Achab Tahrea doubted it, but The Skywalker revealed that at midnight all of the first born children of Had Abaddon who were not Ophuchi would be killed. Achab Tahrea was the first born child of his family, so he knew full well that he would be dead at midnight. Because of it, he allowed the Ophuchi to leave the planet.
The Skywalker sent his sons around to all of the slave encampments on the planet and he himself traveled to the main one closest to the capital. Once at the encampments, The Skywalker and his twelve sons told the Ophuchi to gather what items they could. When they were finished, whole families came pouring out of their tents, making their way to the appointed meeting place just outside the capital city. When they all arrived, The Skywalker spoke to them of how they would be journeying to the Promised Land and how Yahweh would forever watch over them. As they approached the small space yard, Achab Tahrea had second thoughts about allowing the slaves to leave and led his soldiers after the Ophuchi. When they grew closer, the Ophuchi realized that they were being followed and sped up. However, Achab Tahrea and his men arrived and The Skywalker told his brother that he had promised that they would be set free. Achab Tahrea did not wish to see bloodshed, so he challenged The Skywalker to a duel to the death. If The Skywalker won, the slaves would leave. If Achab Tahrea won, the slaves would stay.
As the duel to the death began, the Ophuchi boarded the ships in the space yard and the Had Abaddon troops moved away. The duel was fierce and brutal, though it was quick, for Excelsior held the power of Yahweh within it and quickly overpowered Achab Tahrea. The Skywalker killed his brother and the soldiers were aghast. Wanting to avenge the life of their king, they chased after The Skywalker. However, he was able to make it onto the lead ship with his twelve sons. The ships lifted off and, due to their primitive nature, the flames that erupted from the engines engulfed the nearby soldiers and incinerated them. With that, the vessels took off and they set a course deep into the expanse. Though they did not know the precise location of Kal'Shabbol, they knew that Yahweh would lead them there.
The Promised LandEdit
After forty long days in their vessels, The Skywalker and the Ophuchi arrived on Kal'Shabbol. Having been the first people to set foot upon it in thousands of years, they began constructing their first monastery that would also serve as the religious home of The Skywalker. After the construction was completed months later, The Skywalker sat down upon his newly crated altar to pray. However, what he saw was unexpected: he saw flashes of a man fighting with a blade of pure energy and light, something that The Skywalker referred to as a “laser sword”. His vision than saw the man voyage throughout the stars until, finally, he sacrificed himself for the good of his people before arriving on a peaceful world. It took him years to interpret it’s meaning, but eventually he twas able to decipher it and he named it the Prophecy of the Voyager, the first of the Prophecies of The Skywalker.
During the time that he was deciphering the prophecy, the twelve sons gathered together and began to formalize their people into a religious order rather than just a simple tribe of people. They decided that, as the strongest, they would be the masters of their order and that the twelve strongest members of the order would always have a seat on the Council of Masters. Knowing that they needed a name for themselves, they decided to honor both the legacy that The Skywalker had created for them and the legacy of their own tribe. Therefore, they called themselves the Order of the Jedi Bendu of the Ophuchi, though the short name would be the Jedi Bendu. The Skywalker could not help but be touched by the gesture.
As the years went by, The Skywalker had many more visions of many more people. In the second vision, which he later called the Prophecy of the Night’s Children, he saw an unholy blue-skinned warrior with eyes so red that it frightened him. The warrior stood upon a moon as it rose above a nocturnal throne. A group of additional warriors made their way out from around the throne and began to weave a web, as if they were arachnids, while singing dark prayers and spells. They crept through the shadows, speaking of the darkness and speaking of secrets that were better left unsaid. In the third vision, which he later called the Prophecy of the Sith’ari, he saw a near-Human figure who was originally weak with very little strength. However, as he slaughtered all those who opposed him, he eventually became the strongest. He watched a battle from the sidelines and, when the time was right, there was an explosion. When the dust settled, the figure was the only dark one left, at least for that moment in time. The fourth prophecy, known as the Prophecy of the Guardian, depicted a man who was chained to a wall. As his strength grew, he broke free of his chains and unleashed a fury on those around him. His strength was perfect, as was his power and, seemingly, his destiny. He stood at the front of an army of darkness next to a woman who appeared to be his equal, and led warriors into many battles. However, in their final battle, he stood opposed to them and destroyed them.
The fifth prophecy, known as the Prophecy of the Son of the Suns, showed The Skywalker’s children and their descendants going out amongst the stars to create a grand order of spiritual beings. They followed his children and dwelled within the light of the Ashlan Nebula to record their story on the fourth planet. The creatures continued to be sustained by their task until a dark shadow crossed over them, but a savior emerged from the land of the twin suns and pulled them from the abyss, thus bringing balance to the Force of Others. The sixth prophecy, the Prophecy of the King of Kings, showed the coming of a legendary warrior who emerged from the shadow of his father, the Son of the Suns, on a landscape like nothing he had ever seen before. The figure marched to the top of a grand staircase of an ancient monastery and held a mighty sword high above his head. With his blade and the wise words of a sage, he reunited the people of God under the banner of truth, justice, freedom and democracy. The seventh prophecy, the Prophecy of the Last Son, depicted a ship emerging from a large cloud in space before flying towards a small, watery world. On the world, he witnessed many sites. He saw three large pyramids in the sand, the crucifixion of an innocent bearded man, the decline of a great civilization on the eastern continent, world-wide wars, hunger, famine, disease and destruction. From the rubble, however, emerged a young man waving a flag of peace, justice and freedom. The man walked with another figure, a young woman, who bore his child. The Skywalker never wrote down the prophecy, but he believed that the world was the Planet of God and that the figure was the savior of the universe. Furthermore, he believed that the child within the young woman’s womb was a royal heir that shared the blood of two great Jedi Bendu families. The eighth and final prophecy was the Prophecy of the Nine Prophets. In it, he saw nine men and women lending a helping hand of friendship, loyalty and commitment to each of the other prophesied ones that he had seen before.
For years, The Skywalker did not share his visions with anyone. However, as he grew older and more ill, he finally wrote them down so they could be passed on to the next generation. Finally, after writing each of them, he reached his deathbed and decided to orally share the Prophecy of the Son of the Suns, as he knew that the descendants of his twelve sons would be a major part in it. He told his sons that they and their descendants would go out among the stars and find a great race of wisdom known as the Whills who would create the Order of the Whills after following the Jedi Bendu to dwell within the light of the Ashlan Nebula. On the fourth planet, he told them, they would record the continuing saga of the Jedi Bendu and a great Republic that would last for thousands of generations in the future. Just before he passed, he urged his children to write down what he told them, as he knew that they would need to ensure that the Whills would be sustained by their task until the dark shadow crossed upon them. With those words, he passed from the mortal realm into the immortal realm and took his physical body with him, much to the surprise of his sons.
Immediately following his death, his spirit, which took the appearance of his aged physical body, manifested itself on Ashlan Four. When he arrived there, he was told by Yahweh to make his way into the mountains and spend time in a solemn hermitage. He did not know why he was told to do so, but he did so willingly. Years later, he watched as his twelve sons brought the race called the Whills to the planet and constructed a monastery while founding the Order of the Whills. He watched as they set up the order and as they put together a large, blank book that they came to call the Journal of the Whills. The first page of the journal contained the creation myths of the Ophuchi people, the history of the exodus from Had Abaddon and the Prophecies of The Skywalker, including the statement about how the Whills would tell the story of the Jedi Bendu and the future Republic while everyone shared the story. When the Jedi Bendu left Ashlan Four, The Skywalker left his hermitage and introduced himself as the spirit of a man who once was, but still someone who was capable of being their spiritual leader. The Whills bowed in his presence and agreed to let him stay in the monastery with the Journal of the Whills.
For thousands of years, The Skywalker simply sat upon an altar within the monastery and prayed. The Whills never disturbed him, as they knew that The Skywalker was too important of a being to disturb. However, there came a time when his eyes finally opened and he left the monastery. He introduced himself to a recently deceased man named Ussej Padric Bac and explained that Ussej was the one to fulfill the Prophecy of the Voyager. Ussej had been told that he was the Voyager years earlier, so The Skywalker skipped the explanation of the prophecy and said that Ussej had been destined years earlier to become the Shaman of the Whills. Ussej accepted his mandate and joined The Skywalker upon the altar. The Skywalker made Ussej his voice, so that he would be able to remain within the monastery for as long as Yahweh mandated it. When others fulfilled prophecies, Ussej would be the one to speak with them. Ussej did so willingly and ended up talking to all of those that fulfilled prophecies. The Skywalker instructed Ussej in how to speak to all of them, especially on how to handle speaking with Ussej Padric Bac III during the time of the Great Sovereign Crusades, as it was essential that things going exactly as he and Yahweh had planned.
Over the millennia, The Skywalker watched as Ussej spoke to many other individuals including Carden Mannux, Darth Bane, Kane Starkiller, Annikin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Ussej Padric Bac LXIV and Patrick Keylan Bac, among others. Each of them had a divine purpose in life seen in the Prophecies of The Skywalker, and The Skywalker was pleased with the end result as it vanquished the two great threats of the Bogan, the threats being the Sith and the Lettow, from the universe forever, thus keeping the balance of the Force of Others. When all of the prophecies were fulfilled, Yahweh allowed The Skywalker to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. It was hard for him to leave the Whills behind, but they believed that he had done everything that he had been destined to do and that it was time to return home to the heavenly father. When he did, he found his true parents, Jupiter and Ami, there waiting for him. He reverted to his younger appearance and waved goodbye to the Whills as the gates of Heaven closed. From there, he spent all of eternity in the warm embrace of the Lord.
Personality and traitsEdit
Above all, The Skywalker was a kind and compassionate man. Though he had known nothing about the Ophuchi people and what their supposed magic was, he was quick to sympathize with the fact that they were slaves, despite the fact that his step-father told him that they were dangerous. Because of his acceptance of the Ophuchi, he climbed to the top of Mount Sky, something no one had ever been able to do, which showed his absolute courage and determination. However, sometimes he let his determination waver, as he was unsure as to whether or not he was doing the right thing by watching as Yahweh unleashed plagues upon the world that he had called his home for so many years. However, he eventually came to see that desperate times called for desperate measures and accepted the plagues as a fact of life. He may not have agreed with making innocents suffer, but he accepted the fact that he had no choice in the matter.
The Skywalker was also a loving man. While his twelve sons were not literally his sons, he always loved them as if they were. Each of the sons knew that he loved them unconditionally and he never found reason to be angry or disappointed with them. This made the twelve sons want to follow him further, as they knew that they were being treated with respect for who they were rather than what the government of Had Abaddon wanted them to be. It was undoubtedly for that reason that the Order of the Jedi Bendu of the Ophuchi was able to be founded in the first place, because if The Skywalker had not been an accepting man then it was very likely that he would not have had the followers that he had.
Talents and abilitiesEdit
The Skywalker did not consider himself talented in anything. In his mind, he was simply following the will and word of God and would do what He asked him to do. However, he was somewhat talented in the art of the sword, though he did not train himself for battle. The sole reason he was able to defeat his step-brother during their duel at the Had Abaddon port was that he had the hand of God on his side, and God was essentially allowing the blade to find its mark in order for the Ophuchi to flee from the planet and reach the Promised Land. After the Ophuchi arrived at the Promised Land, The Skywalker never again touched his sword, though it was later given to Ussej Padric Bac III by Ussej Padric Bac in order to end the Great Sovereign Crusades. Thousands of years later, it was once again handed to a mortal when it was given to Ussej Padric Bac LXIV and Luke Skywalker in their efforts to end the Galactic Civil War.
The Skywalker also possessed the ability to see a vague future, something that very few people were able to do. This ability allowed him to create what was known as the Prophecies of The Skywalker, which became treasured artifacts thousands of years after his mortal death. Unlike many, however, the visions he was given did not mentally torture him. Four other well-documented cases of people seeing the future had to do with Onderonian Queen Arael Maans, Ussej Padric Bac, Ussej Padric Bac III and Annikin Skywalker, and the visions they received tortured them greatly. The Skywalker may have managed to avoid such torture because it was a direct gift from Yahweh in order for him to know what was to specifically come, rather than a means to an end like it was in the case of the four others.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Skywalker was created by Brandon Rhea for his Alternative Star Wars Saga. He based the story off of the limited information given by George Lucas in the original drafts of The Star Wars about the formation and philosophies of the "Jedi Bendu of Ophuchi". Other elements of the story come from a story called the Journal of the Whills by Brendan J. Whalberg. However, most of the story is based directly off of the story of Moses from the Biblical Book of Exodus.
