Jedi Investigative Service (JIS) File: 376912 Officer in Charge: Jedi Master Krael
Report: I have reviewed the limited sensor data available and the wreckage recovered from the Rebaine expedition as well as having conducted numerous debriefs of the child survivors. My conclusions are troubling, while I have been thus far unable to identify the weapons used to destroy the convoy, and am unlikely to based on the rudimentary sensor reports, I have examined the escape pods. From the scoring on the hatches there can be only one conclusion, Lightsabers were used in the attack, the children talk of dark robed figures carrying red lightsabers. While the evidence of lightsaber use cannot be denied, the obvious trauma to the children could have distorted their recollection of events, But we cannot be to cautious when it comes to the ancient enemy.
Recommendation #1: Jedi strike team be dispatched to investigate Recommendation #2: Immediate notification of Supreme Chancellor
Report Ends: Classification Jedi Council's Eyes Only
From: Jedi Medical Division file #359102 Chief Medical Examiner's report: Jedi Selerna
As per standard protocol I have conducted an autopsy on the decedent, after completing exhaustive testing, cause of death is an acute myocardial infarction. Due to an apparent undiagnosed congenital defect in his right atria, pending any further evidence to the contrary I am ruling this death by Natural Causes.

From: Jedi General Bars-El (file #459032) Location: Balmorra To: _name redacted_ (authorization code: zed-036)
As per orders I have been observing Jedi Master Conitor for some time and have detected no sign of _redacted_ . He has reported a recurring dream of a figure that is familiar to him in fearsome armor advancing upon him with a lightsaber drawn, intent on combat. I hesitate to call this a force vision since the Rebaine line has never evinced this ability but it cannot be ruled out completely. As for his actions and behavior I have found him to be an above average combatant and leader except for certain flashes of _redacted_. While I cannot understand why I have been given orders to observe a Master for _redacted_ without any evidence, I will continue to do so until otherwise ordered by _redacted_.

News Break: In a stunning pre-dawn raid unknown forces attacked the heavily fortified command bunker of the 23rd Republic Division on Balmorra. Details are sketchy at this time but casualties are estimated to be at least 1700 troopers and 3000 support staff.
Update: It was confirmed that the nerve agent Atroxin was used in the attack, also confirmation was received that the entire command staff including famed Jedi General Bars-El were in the compound at the time of the attack and are listed as among the casualties. It is still unknown at this point who launched the attack as the Empire has, unusually for them, not claimed responsibility for the attack.

Something weird is going on here, as you asked I've been investigating the anomalies in the data streams referenced in your last request, and someone has breached not only our systems but from what I can tell the Jedi systems as well. I have been able to trace at least four different erasures and alterations of high level reports, but I can't recover the reports themselves. Whoever did this knows how to work the system very well. He/she has almost caught me at least twice and I've been using a rotating cipher key, we need to find this person or organization fast I'm convinced they've been responsible for at least what happened on Balmorra and mostly likely alot more. I've attached my findings to this file, just remember how we caught that first fish on Coruscant and you'll be able to open it. I'll keep working on my end but we both have to be very careful these people are ruthless.

My place was broken into "nothing" was missing, but you know how that is, oh yeah, my speeder just exploded. Luckily I was using the remote at the time, but I'm on the run now, I can't use the normal safe houses so I'm going to ground. You know the place, mom said we were never to go there. I found something with a little creative hacking into places I shouldn't be, it's a small string, but I made the mistake of tugging on it. Keep yourself safe I'll try to get it to you through the (J) channels, I'm initiating plan Alpha now.

Today Gervais Renard, the Director of the SIS was attacked in an apparent assassination attempt. The assailants were later identified as members of the radical group Humans First. The Director's security detail was killed but luckily there were two Jedi Knights nearby who intervened and were forced to slay the perpetrators. Renard was seriously wounded in the attack and taken under SIS/Jedi guard to the Coruscant Military Hospital. Neither the Jedi rescuers the SIS or the Order itself responded to questions.

You exceeded your authority with recent events and worse yet you failed horribly. From now on your independent authority to initiate action has been revoked. The agency involved in your ill fated attempt is getting to close, we must be cautious and circumspect. Thankfully the "Others" are still in the dark as to our agenda, but that will not last forever. To many "coincidences" have been happening lately and if we are right about the Rebaine Line then caution is merited more than ever. You know the consequences if you disobey this order.

Exalted One, after years of of investigation and countless sacrifices we have confirmed the presence of the Anomaly in the Rebaine Line. We are now trying to synthesize the first of the Alpha formulas for testing, due to the limited amount of material available to us at this time our test batch will be small. I humbly request the authority to initiate a mission to accumulate more material to enhance our ability to continue refinement of the formula. I am aware that such action could put our agenda at greater risk, but I see no other way to proceed. As always my life is yours.

Permission denied, I have felt a disturbance unlike anything I have encountered before, We may have been mistaken in our initial analysis of the anomaly in the Rebaine Line. The nature of the Anomaly may not be what we thought, It could be something completely new and potentially uncontrollable, we must be more cautious than ever. As of this date I am invoking the Sanction Protocols, against the Primary Line section Beta and The Secondary Line section Alpha. If this is what I think it is we all are in danger and we must strike first, even though haste is anathema to our cause it may be the only thing that saves us. Until such time as the Protocols are successfully enacted switch to communications protocol Theta.

I'm writing this because I don't think I have much time left. Looking into the mirror I don't recognize myself anymore, and I am afraid. My fear is that if It happens again it won't be my face that stares back from the mirror. I waited to long, in my arrogance I thought it was nothing, in retrospect It's all so clear now, the changes so obvious, the seemingly random events all form a pattern. that's why at the conclusion of this entry I'm both sending it to Command and turning myself in before it's to late. So I'll start at the beginning, approximately two years ago I had my first "episode" it only lasted and hour, Leading up to it I felt a pressure in my head a pain like I had never felt before, and it only seemed to get worse as the days went by. At first I thought it was my re-breather that was malfunctioning, (I was stationed on Quesh), so I got a new one, no change. After two more days I went to the med-tech to get checked out. After some scans he said that apart from my pain centers being over active, ( I could have strangled him for stating such an obviously stupid thing, clue one) , nothing else appeared to be wrong so he sent me on my way with some pain meds. I went back to my quarters dressed for bed and took the pills, they seemed to be working and then just as I lay dozing the most extreme pain lanced through my head accompanied by a bright white light and the nothing. When I regained consciousness I noticed two things, First I had been unconscious for and hour and secondly and more disconcerting I was in bed and completely dressed down to my weapons ,which were reversed, and my re-breather was on. I immediately surveyed my surroundings, nothing seemed out of order, I then checked the sensor logs of the door and they reported that the door opened twice in the span of an hour. I called the med tech thinking that maybe one of the side effects of the meds was sleep walking, he reported that this was not so and asked if something was wrong (I lied to him). Only later did I realize that the pressure was gone when I woke up and stayed gone the entire rest of my tour on Quesh, which thankfully was uneventful except for the desertion of three troopers.

What I didn't realize until later was how I felt after I regained my senses...Sated and Content like I was hungry and didn't even realize it until after I consumed a large meal. I'd never felt anything like it before , I wanted to keep feeling it , that was when I started to rationalize things as coincidences or flat out impossibilities. All this in pursuit of these new sensations that I wanted to keep feeling, but even then I wasn't completely gone, at my next posting, Nar-Shadda I took steps. Upon my arrival I shamelessly traded on my rank to procure quarters far from the others in my detatchment, I'm sure they thought it an odd eccentricity, but thankfully no one objected. Once I was settled in I set up continuously running holo- cams to see what happened if I had another episode, for three months everything was fine. After all that time I was beginning to think that it wouldn't happen again ,(part of me regretted that), I even began to entertain the notion of turning off the holo-coms, (sifting through hundreds of hours of watching myself sleep was tedious to say the least). The day I finally decided to turn them off, we got a tip that the local Black Sun Vigo was getting a shipment of glitter-stim, so a raid was set up to arrest both the Vigo and the buyer. Everything went fine, at first, we neutralized the perimeter defenses and breached the building with no casualties, but then a three way firefight broke out, while my team fanned out to handle the thugs I went after the Vigo. I got the drop on her and was about to disarm her when the pain came back as never before, like someone poured lava inside my skull and I dropped bonelessly to the floor right in front the Vigo. Through the incoherency of my thoughts I heard her draw her weapon and in a primal panic lashed out, (only later learning that I had killed her) but not before she got off a shot that hit me center mass, thankfully my armor took most of the blast and all I need was kolto injection. In the confusion of the battle thankfully my team didn't see what happened, I don't know how I would have explained it. So I made my way back to my quarters trying not to let anyone know that their commander could barely perceive his surroundings through the pressure that was continuing to build unabated by the pain meds given at the med-center. Once inside my quarters I put a security override on the door so it wouldn't open till morning, locked my weapons in a reinforced phobium safe, time locked it and finally checked the holo-cams before collapsing on my bed. As I lay there I was both hoping and dreading what may come next.....and then in a flash of blinding light I knew no more.
I regained my senses sometime later, the chrono said three hours had past with out my knowledge. Looking around I beheld the changes wrought to my quarters since my absence, they were a wreck the desk, lamps and even the the dresser were destroyed. But worse yet was the state of the safe where I locked my weapons, the door was ripped off the hinges as if it were made of paper, with what looked like bare hands. Oddly though my weapons, which were obviously moved from their wresting place were still there and spotless as if someone had taken them up and then returned them with care, the only things in my quarters that seemed to merit any consideration. I hastened to the cam controls eagerly dreading what I would find in the recordings, only to be stymied by the realization that the lockout had been over ridden and the footage erased for an exact period of three hours. Next I checked the door logs , which at first glance looked untouched but upon further examination were subtly tampered with to cover any activity for three hours. But why would someone so obviously make their presence known in such a violent manner and then show consummate subtlety on seemingly insignificant details? As I was just starting to calm myself a bit the holo- terminal beeped as if in glee in disrupting what little composure I had regained. I flicked the controls with a slightly shaking hand and beheld a dark flickering figure, with no discernible features except that it was humanoid in appearance, the voice obviously modulated so as not to give away the gender of the of the sender, sent shivers of dread down my spine. The voice uttered only two cryptic words but they shook me to my core, ......IT'S INEVITABLE. The rest of my tour on Nar-Shadda was un-evenful, apart from my constant anxiety and jumping at every shadow both real and imagined. I was glad to see that planet recede behind me I've been ordered to Coruscant, my mission there has been deemed need to know, so I'm on a tramp freighter making the slow trip. On an unexpected note the sect of the Vigo that had come so close to killing me, seemed to have gotten into a turf war over who would take over the vacant position. In one night of blood and death over one hundred members of the gang were killed effectively destroying the gangs effectiveness, but the collateral damage of so violent an altercation was virtually nill.
Mistress, The Protocols are active and the assets are in place, the neutralization of target is set to be carried out when they arrive on Coruscant. Multiple cut outs have been used and maximum prejudice in neutralization of target is authorized. probability matrices indicated an 87.6% chance of success and a 99.3% chance of neutralization of the assets after completion. I hope this meets with your approval.
In Your Name and for your Glory.

David, as we've been discussing, we're leaking like a sieve, I don't know how they are penetrating our systems or even who "They" are, but it has to stop. From what I've gathered it's not just us they've been keeping tabs on but also at the very least the Republic Security Service (RSS), Military Security (MilSec) and the Jedi Investigative Service (JIS) have been compromised. I'm even beginning to suspect that the Chancellor's Office and if you can believe it the Jedi High Council is being monitored (in the case of the Jedi getting them to answer is as likely as a Mon-Cal living on Tatooine). My initial read on this is it's an Imperial operation, just considering the sheer magnitude of the OP, but from a few sources I've got in Imp space something's breached their systems as well, even going so far as to bring about the dissolution of Imperial Intelligence and a massive purge of it's assets, if you can believe that, the really scarey thing is I do. So the question is who has the ability to so completely compromise us as well as gutting the Empire's intelligence apparatus, In short, no one. So there's a new player in the game or even more disconcerting an old player that has been so proficient that we haven't heard a whisper about them till now. So to make everything official, at least between us, as Director SIS I'm formally invoking Article 14 Section 31 of the Charter. I know it's a very precipitous step I'm taking( as far as I'm aware the Article's only been invoked once before) but unless we find out what's going on, I fear our days are numbered. So from this time 0530 CST the SIS is effectively an autonomous entity, (for the duration of the emergency), subject to no oversight and all Directives and Republic Law are rescinded. You are directed to compartmentalize all assets and operations (discontinuing where possible) until further notice, also you are to monitor and conduct a complete investigation of the following agencies SIS, JIS, RSS, Chancellor's Office, MilSec, and the Jedi High Council (JHC). These agencies will be considered hostile to Republic interests until further notice. Extended rendition and incarceration of Level 5 and below personnel is authorized. Level 6 and above will be considered on a case by case basis unless time constraints dictate otherwise. Concerning the JIS and JHC no physical action will be taken without my expressed approval, considering the extensive resources needed to confine individuals of those agencies. This mission will only use irregular assets, specifically those from Lists Alpha through Theta, you are also authorized to activate and deploy Special Action Groups (SAG), (irregular) 8,15,21 for operations regarding the JIS and JHC, due to their resistance to Force related abilities. I've set up isolated comp cores at sites beta, epsilon and omega to store data regarding the investigation, all further communication about this will be routed through them. I know these actions probably mean the end of our careers even if no public action is ever taken but I believe if we do nothing everything our people have fought and died for will be lost, if you believe in any higher powers pray to them we are going to need all the help we can get.
Entry: Day 317 of my mission on Coruscant, (Yeah I know I shouldn't be writing this down, but I simply don't care), as of this date there have been seventeen separate attempts on my life, three almost succeeded. It's funny really, I mean come on why would such a diverse crowd from a shopkeeper, trying to poison me with a Jumja dart, to an honest to goodness Mandalorian try to kill me? It's not like my mission is anything galaxy shattering, I'm to watch this Devaronian for any suspicious activity and report back to my superiors if anything occurs. So far the most subversive thing he's done is buy questionable reading material, If I were the paranoid type (irony, rear thy head) one might think they've been set up as an easy mark. Every time it happens my superiors look appropriately appalled and then send me right back out there, with a pat on the head and "keep up the good work" pep talk. On the bright side I haven''t had an episode since I got here, I don't know whether it's the constant stress/action or the great painkillers I'm on (no I didn't go to the med center to get them, bad me). Either way I'm functioning (well sort of) at an acceptable level, as long as I'm not tested for spice (oops, gave it away, forget I wrote that down) I should be fine. My living conditions, as fine as they are (irony again) preclude me locking myself in for the night, well that and the five night time attempts on my life. Well I have no Idea why I wrote this entry down it's pretty useless not to mention it rambles quite a bit. But there are a couple of things I should write down, just in case, I lost track of time after a few of the "incidents" I'm sure it's just the spice (oops did it again) I'll just dial it back a bit. Secondly my secret admirer called me back again,wasn't that sweet of him/her/it?, they had some suitably sinister voice scrambling in effect and muttered something to the effect of "Why are you fighting, you'd know the truth if only you'd listen" talk about cryptic. Well I better go to sleep, got a bit of a headache, have to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for the next person who tries to kill me........... (23.7 minutes of silence)....Low laugh detected, no words
