The guys a shabla traitor who failed at being a jedi and became a hippie mando-poser wannabe.
hippie mando-poser wannabe. – That’s pretty funny.
However, I disagree that he’s a traitor to the Jedi and or the Republic.
First and foremost, he is a civilian. The argument can be made that he never swore an oath to either the Jedi Order or the Republic.
He was essentially kidnapped as a toddler and indoctrinated into a group of mystics who attempted to control all its members’ thoughts words and deeds.
[e.g. Beware of attachment… it leads to the dark side
; Beware of Anger… it leads to the dark side
; Beware of Cheeze-Whiz… It has high levels of corn-sugar; (And it leads to the dark side
And at no time, that I’m aware of, did he ever swear allegiance to anyone (other than maybe Kal). And, at no time did he ever betray his allegiance to anyone.
IMO, No Jedi, anywhere in the Order, actually merited the rank of General. And Jusik, I believe, never even attained the rank. [I think he was Zey’s padawn / CDMR; before he quit]
As you say, it’s no accident that people like Jusik; (i.e. it is by KT’s design).
But nonetheless, Jusik saw the Order as flawed and hypocritical; and, he couldn’t abide his participation in it any longer. He didn’t desert, he didn’t defect. He took the high road; and voiced his reservations to his superiors, and resigned his commission. If Yoda and his force-using, feel-good, phonies had a beef with him leaving; they could’ve passed sentence saber-style, or have just locked him up in the Arla Fett memorial wing of the Coruscant crazy house.
I have similar feelings toward Jusik as I do toward American soldiers, who volunteered for service to their country, and then deserted to hide in Canada to avoid doing their sworn duty ... but in the end I can't get over the idea of breaking a sworn oath and desertion in a time of war, when one is needed the most.
I wholeheartedly agree; Douche bags who think they can obtain the benefits of military service when it suits them; and then forsake that service when actually called to task are, IMO, traitorous scum. As you say, an oath was sworn and a contract was signed; just because someone may claim some objections due to conscience; or, worse yet… actually desert to foreign country is inexcusable and IMO warrants a lengthy sentence of penal-servitude, (at a minimum).
I will say, though; I never actually heard of American military personnel deserting to Canada to avoid service.
I am aware of the so-called “draft dodgers” who avoid the selective service duty, (i.e. the draft), by escaping to Canada or some other foreign land. To me, this is different than the scenario above. These people are civilians who out of either cowardice or conscience decide not to answer the call. – Yes, they are breaking the law. But, to me at least; it is a lot less egregious than military personnel deserting their county in her time of need.
I'm willing to cut the clones some slack, and even Skirata because he's a bit shifty by nature to anyone not in his personal clan,
Forgive me; but that is wholly duplicitous.
Kal gets a pass? Because, of his shifty nature?
A contracted instructor who later goes own to be a Sgt. of the GAR uses his position and influence to not only steal vast sums of wealth; but also commit countless acts of sedition; while amassing a cadre of the Republic’s finest troops, loyal only to himself, with sole purpose of deserting their brothers, the GAR, and the entire Republic that they have sworn to protect
He is biggest traitor since JUDAS ISCARIOTE
[Don’t get wrong, I do love Kal Skirata; but the guy is a traitorous hypocrite – no two ways about it]Anyways…
As far as least favorite character; in general; I’d say Dr. Uthan – something about scientists in ivory towers willing to commit genocide; just to get a few more letters of distinction to add to their names tend to bug me.
From that list; I’m going with A’den or Atin (whoever did not
have the fight w/ Vau). And, the only reason is that I cannot remember a single thing about the character that took place in any of the books; (other than being listed in the dramatis personae).
