"I figured he needed to learn from that ruthlessness. Learn the true meaning of pain, and so I...well I expect you know what I'm about to say. I tortured him Mara, for quite some time. Held him in the Embrace of Pain as Vergere had once done to me. I tried to teach him. I was so convinced it was the only way forward and that he was to be my successor. But Luke, he got to him before I could finish, he tricked me, he made me think he was dead and then he fought me. He was better than me that day but he stopped Ben taking my life in anger. Probably saved him. Didn't save me. By then they say there was nothing left to save. Last I heard he was fine, trying to redeem Tahiri. Being the good little Jedi Knight you raised him to be."

The things he was trying to put behind him, push under the proverbial rug all rushing back to confront him in a very real way.
"I wouldn't stop you and no one would blame you." he said simply. Tenel Ka and Allana the only reasons he wasn't begging her to end him. Because maybe then, maybe if she did the anger would vanish again.
