Worthlessness is a privilege he'd learned to appreciate too late.

The naive child he had been had needed to be needed. When he failed to become an apprentice, he had mistaken his strong grip on his fate for his life falling through his fingers.

He'd had the gift of expendability, free to take advantage of whenever he wished. He hadn't, and Qui-Gon had shackled him with the burden of worth.

He is a General, a leader. Now, his life belongs to thousands that need him.

The war will be over one day, and he'll be worthless once more.

Till then.
