Greetings. I’m introducing myself, as I have just found this Academy. I am called Lanius Narcassan (strange sounding name for sure, but it came to me when I was trying to leave my former self behind, so I took it). I’m eager to learn, to share my knowledge, and to discuss what this path means to us all.
Narcassan is an uncommon, but not unheard of, name in the Star Wars universe. Lanius is the genus name for the shrike, a very interesting bird of prey. It is a very small animal which uses nature instead of its own abilities to aid its survival. For example, it will not attack its prey with its feet, like a normal bird of prey would, though it is capable. It instead makes use of everything around it, creating a weapon or setting a trap. I took the name to remind myself to use the tools around me.
