Timeline: Slightly pre-AotC.
I am hurt.
Apart from being the most hated being in the galaxy (although Master Sidious claims that this is good for my well-being), I am also one of the most lonely beings in the galaxy. It certainly does not help that your
best friend is lying dead in a preservation tank like a silly museum exhibit.
It's not as if he responds when you talk to him. Good ol' Sifo-Dyas. Not that he talked much when he was alive to begin with.
I tend to take pleasure in looking through my old stuff. Things, remnants from my existence in the Jedi Order... Memories of Qui-Gon Jinn.
Ah yes. Qui-Gon. My bestest, favourite padawan. Not the sanest being on earth, and certainly one of the most erratic - but it takes quite a lot of effort to hate him. After all, I spent a hell lot of years watching him growing up. It's difficult to forget little events like the time he nearly killed Master Yoda by mistaking arsenic for table salt.
To the relief of several members of the Council, it turned out that Master Yoda seemed to show no reaction to the poison. Unfortunately, he did have the tendency to walk around naked around the Jedi Temple for the next few months. Young Quinlan Vos had to be sedated and kept away from the corridors until we were sure that Master Yoda was finally back to his healthy self.
I personally find that the most memorable thing about my former padawan was how he refused to take baths. Now, I assure you that this is a normal phenomenon among children - but for young Qui-Gon, it seemed that every single bath was a battle to be won, and I had to make sure no one catched me in the 'fresher, wearing an apron and struggling to bathe him.
For the record, I am not a paedophile. However, if there is a medical term that can be used to describe a tendency to be sexually attracted to older men, it may be used in this context.
Ah, yes, happy times. I do remember that young Qui-Gon was like me, a radical. He firmly believed in the Force, not the Council. Who could? It was run by a mouldy tree stump who needed to get some fresh air for his own good. When Master Windu was appointed to the Council, I nearly laughed myself silly.
You've got to be kidding. These are the people they import into the Order these days. No wonder the Sith are getting more and more powerful by the day.
Jedi - 0, Sith - 1.
It's things like these that make me understand that while you can be the galaxy's most hated being, that doesn't stop you from having a good laugh or two.
I am happy.
