A Modern AU

Timeline created by Oakwyrm
  • Yoda's Adoption

    Yoda Katak (3) is taken in by the philosopher N'Kata Del Gormo (27), uwittingly starting the line of unlikely, found families that will one day lead to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.
  • Birth of Yan Dooku

    Yan Dooku is born to Gora and Anya Dooku, Count and Countess of Serenno. He is their second son, born under inauspicious signs.
  • Death of N'Kata Del Gormo

    N'Kata Del Gormo dies at age fifty-three. It is sudden, and quite unexpected.
  • Abandoned to Die

    Convinced his younger son is cursed, Count Gora of Serenno abandons then eight-year-old Yan on the side of the road. This being the 30s, this action does not gain the notice of anyone particularly important and Gora suffers no consequences.
    Luckily for Yan he's found within the day by a kinder soul. A twenty-nine year old Yoda, to be specific.
  • Birth of Qui-Gon Jinn

    Qui-Gon Jinn is born and given up for adoption by his mother. He will not be adopted for many years.
  • Birth of Cin Drallig

    Cin Drallig is born to a mother unprepared to care for a child, and given into Yoda's care. Yoda is, at this point, thirty-six years old, and Yan is sixteen.
  • Qui-Gon Adopted

    A nearly thirteen-year-old Qui-Gon Jinn is adopted by Yan Dooku, all of ten days befor his newly adopted father's twenty-fifth birthday.
  • Birth of Feemor

    Born Feemor Ar'Gall, he will eventually take up the name Feemor Jinn. He is the first of Qui-Gon's children, and one of only two to be biologically related to the man. Qui-Gon is, at this time, sixteen.
  • Birth of Xanatos du Crion

    Xanatos is born the bastard son of a billionaire. His life will be the furthest thing from easy. He will not bear the name "du Crion" for the first twenty-odd years of his life.
  • The Beginning of a Family

    An eleven-year-old Xanatos is adopted by thirty-one-year-old Qui-Gon Jinn the same month as Feemor's mother dumps him, rather unceremoniously, on his birth father's doorstep. Qui-Gon did not expect two children, but he can't exactly turn Feemor away, and so their family has begun.
  • Birth of Obi-Wan Kenobi

    Obi-Wan Kenobi is born and quickly abandoned by his birth parents.
  • Birth of Malachi Oper

    Born Malachi Palpatine, the eldest son of Talzin Oper and Sheev Palpatine. His childhood was miserable. Not that his brothers had it a super lot better, but at least they avoided being raised by Sheev Palpatine.
  • Birth of Asajj Ventress

    Asajj Ventress is born and adopted by Yan Dooku, who is at this point fifty years old.
    She never really became close with Qui-Gon despite being his sister, mostly due to their massive age gap, and she has a weird, antagonistic relationship with Obi-Wan. In all honesty, though, she really is ride-or-die for (almost) all of her niblings. In a "you tell anyone about this, I kill you" kind of way. Especially when it comes to Ahsoka.
  • The Oper-Palpatine Divorce

    Talzin Oper finally finalizes her divorce with her husband of eleven years, Sheev Palpatine. To get him to stop dragging out the proceedings she grants him one concession, custody of their eldest son Malachi (7), while she keeps custody of the younger two, Saveli (4) and Feroz (1).
  • An Upheaval

    Xanatos' biological father comes crashing into the family's delicate balance, throwing everything out of balance. Things fall appart remarkably quickly and Xanatos (21) cuts contact completely, shattering Qui-Gon's confidence in his parenting which only serves to further strain the relationship between him and Feemor.
  • Obi-Wan's Adoption

    Obi-Wan Kenobi (12) is adopted by Qui-Gon Jinn (44), despite the latter's previous conviction that he would never have more children. Their relationship will never be good, exactly, but Obi-Wan will never forget that Qui-Gon was the one who pulled him out of a life he hated and, eventually, gave him his family.
  • Rise of Count Yan Dooku of Serenno

    Following the sudden, unexpected death of his elder brother Ramil, Yan Dooku reappears and claws his way into his rightful position, having never officially been disinherited.
    This, unfortunately, coinsides with the start of Yan's slow-growing rift with his chosen family. A rift which will not be mended until it is far too late.
  • Birth of Anakin Skywalker

    Anakin Skywalker is born to nineteen-year-old seamstress Shmi Skywalker. His birth father is a politician by the name of Sheev Palpatine. Yes, all of this is exactly as gross as it sounds.
    Palpatine will, naturally, never admit to any wrongdoing but he is not above leaning as hard as he possibly can on the tale of a man separated by force from two of his sons. In the face of such grief, who would grudge him a small, momentary lapse in judgement?
