I have a name for the clone who takes the limiter shot. Cricket. As in, it’s so quiet…. (You just hear the crickets.)
Hakkai and Gojyo probably aren’t that far away when things go to Order 66 in a handbasket. Healer or not, if Hakkai’s going to be in the field at all the Jedi Council wants Jedi Kouryuu holding his leash. Kouryuu could care less what the Council thinks, but there’s all these reports….
Which means Gojyo will get a good laugh at the white robes before Sanzo figures out what he’s laughing at. Goku and Hakkai are a bit more circumspect. They like breathing.
After a bit of Wookiepedia research on the original Je’daii of Tython, the bunnies think something like that is the most likely source for Kanzeon, kami in general, and Koumyou Sanzo’s line of teachings. As in Shadow, not Light or Dark Side users. Of course this makes me wonder if Koumyou infiltrated the Jedi, or if he was originally a classic Jedi but got converted to Kanzeon’s way of doing things before he picked up a little Force-Sensitive infant floating down a river.
Either way he likely picked up the kid because Kouryuu had the capability for a very explosive but controlled temper. “Rule it, don’t let it rule you,” is Sanzo’s canon attitude toward negative emotion.
(Kanzeon also swears he’s the reincarnation of hir nephew Konzen Douji. After all, Jedi don’t know everything about the Force….)
Kouryuu, though, bunnies suspect was reasonably on the Jedi version of straight and narrow despite Koumyou’s unorthodox teachings. He knew they weren’t considered Temple canon, but… Goku. Good night, Goku.
(I defy even Mace Windu to keep an even temper with Goku going after peaches. Yoda could do it, yes. But not Mace.)
And then once Kouryuu caught Gonou/Hakkai, they were the only thing that helped. Instead of letting the partly-insane Healer stew in the Dark until the Temple mind-healers could try to fix him, Kouryuu threw out a lifeline.
So… very judicious, very careful, very sparing use of Shadow techniques. Until Order 66. And then boom.
(Do not shoot the monkey. Do yourself a favor, and never shoot the monkey.)
Bunnies suspect Kouryuu had no idea he could ever get that mad.
(Koumyou did. Koumyou had some visions. Ooo boy.)
I still need to figure out what the sutra’s power to “break the darkness” actually translates to in Star Wars. Much less what youkai and Minus Wave effects, if any, should be.
