Right. So I was asked by Roan (working under Damon's threats) to write something about "how I selected my paddies and anything else that springs to mind." I was told that if I do not comply with these requests that I will not be let into Canada for college. As I know Damon has connections deep in the Canadian immigration department and that he is a big black man and I am a scrawny little white boy, this is an offer I cannot refuse. Besides, I have this feeling Roan knows more than he's telling me.
So here goes. First of all, what you have to understand is that when I was first made Knight I was only a "n00b" in the JAK+ society. I was the coffee boy. And I was eager to impress the higher-ups. Anybody in my position would be. So naturally, the best way to do that was to take a few padawans and train them into something the JA could be proud of. Good agents. So as I went on my padawan hunt, I had two things in mind: first, I needed people with a deeper understanding than the average student of the workings of the JA, and second, I needed loyalty. Not loyalty to me, but loyalty to the JA. I wanted people who would not betray the agency... eh.. I mean, academy, at any cost. Out of all the people who were eager to start their apprenticeship under me, I found two people who fit that description very well: Sared and Fizz. I loved them, from the beginning. They were perfect. I couldn't tell you how I knew, I just did. I guess that's why I was made JAK (and later on, JAT) to begin with. I can feel these things about people. I don't have to tell you Sared and Fizz did, and *cough* still do, and awesome job.
Anyway, as time went on I took more padawans under my wing. First there was Orion. Then, Casual and Acey Spadey. Don't ask me why. I don't know. They were just my friends and I wanted to do something nice for them.
You see, at that point in time I didn't like the JA very much. They pissed me off. So I decided to take a couple padawans who didn't have a very big future at the JA, for various reasons which I won't go into right now. They were awesome people, but the truth was they were just your average Joe students. The fact that one of them later became a Knight had nothing to do with me. But I can't get into that right now, perhaps at a later time.
That is all I can tell you at this point. I could tell you more, but I would have to kill you, and I'd hate to do that. You understand.
