Introduction Into Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
Apocalypse was introduced to Jedi Knight Jedi Academy by his cousin XiaoXiaoIV or xXx in the summer of 2004. Every year when Apoc would visit his cousin they role played in their LAN server for weeks at a time. This was before Apoc owned his own computer and before he owned his own JKA copy. In their RP games Apoc developed some basics in saber combat, game mechanics, and his in game name that would take a role years down the road.
Early Stages of Jedi Knight Jedi Academy Multiplayer
The first server Apocalypse ever joined was the public Knights Reborn server or -[KR]-. Apoc shared a computer with his older brother at the time whose in game name was Von Durr. He reside there for four days. It did not go so well seeing as when he first joined in he lamed countless people not understanding the rules and laws of the online universe. After having many problems with -[KR]- Apoc left scouting the servers to better his skill with dual black arbiter sabers using the Darth Apocalypse skin.
One day XiaoXiaoIV went to the dentist and left Apoc alone at his house in Las Vegas, United States. Apocalypse was bored dueling aimlessly on a random online Sith based server using the mod Jedi Academy Plus (JA+) on the map Sithcouncilv2. Sithcouncilv2 happened to be Apocalypse's favorite map at the time and was going to be used for a year once their server was created. He had an epiphany: he realized he could create his own clan and base it off of his novel he was writing. He quickly put the new tag of the clan name in front of his own making -[DE]-Darth Apocalypse as did his cousin once he returned home to the news. -[DE]-Darth Apocalypse and -[DE]-Lord xXx hastily filtered the server of new worthy members of this potential rising Sith Empire clan.
DE.jpg Starkiller was the first to be recruited then Ice came after, then Slaughter, firefly, IceNova aka Nova, Malak, an Unknown Girl, Revan aka Trion (who is still with -[DE]- to this day), and Consequence. Thus began the Acolytes of the Dark Empire. -[DE]- accumulated on a server that wasn't yet there own but people still believed it was ours so order was maintained for the most part. Apocalypse spent many hours going through other servers recruiting as many people as possible. It wasn't until one night he went on a power duel server where he faced a man named Shadow and another unknown individual in which Apoc won 2-0 until the other guy rage quit leaving Shadow and Apoc alone. Apocalypse attempted to recruit this Shadow until he finally swayed him. Shadow agreed to join -[DE]- and also offered to make DE their own server. Thus began the foundation of the clan. Shadow today is known as Q. Joining The Jedi Academy
During the time period of the formation of the Dark Empire and Q's generosity in making the clan a home server Apocalypse was on the Sith Empire clan server looking for an alliance, practicing saber skills, and looking for possible new recruits. There he dueled SE's clan members and guests for the next five hours... recruiting nobody. The day seemed dry and dragging out. It too was on a JA server, constant blocking, random hit boxes, and random lamers coming to the server. Apoc did fare against some of the duelists. Not to forgot Apoc is only two weeks into online experience at this point. Around six P.M. that day a duelist connected to the server named Beep. Apocalypse underestimated this Beep since the player had no color in their name he assumed this player was new to the game. He dueled her and she won with 100 health points and 99 shields. Second duel she won 100 health points and 100 shields. Third duel she won 100/100. Apocalypse was completely astonished by the urbane of Beep. He had never seen such saber dueling skills. He didn't waste anytime attempting to recruit her into the Dark Empire of the Sith. She respectively declined however. Saying she didn't like clans and she already belonged to a JKA community known as TJA (The Jedi Academy). Her TJA name is Jaina D'Kana but in public she used Beep at that current moment. Apoc asked if she would at least train him to learn the ways of the JKA saber. Jaina said she was done training padawans but she said if he joined TJA people there would gladly help him. So Apoc registered and became an official TJA student as well as -[DE]- clan leader. The coincidence of the meeting between Jaina D'kana and Darth Apocalyspe was that Apoc picked the Sith Empire server at random on the list and Jaina D'kana very rarely enters a server with Jedi Knight Plus Mod installed in it. Apocalypse left his clan inactive as he trained himself hard in the TJA servers. Meeting new people such as Xanatos who eventually became a Dark Empire clan member and SauCeaka Darth Baker a man considered one of the greatest duelists of all time by many. Apoc spent many hours in TJA to hone his saber skills. Longest_ive_been_on_a_server.jpgIn the picture to the left you can see Apocalypse on the TJA server for 1343 minutes at that given time. The consequence of devoting so much time into training in the Jedi Academy was the fact that -[DE]- was left unattended and inactivity was evident. -[DE]- was slowly dieing behind the scenes. This was when Apocalypse realized after three weeks of TJA practice that it was time he divided his time between TJA and DE. Building the Dark Empire of the Sith
Once Q came into the picture the Dark Empire had a server, a foundation in which Apocalypse and his DE could grow. Apocalypse had admin to control disruptions in the server now, his first goal was to bring back all the old members he could. Everybody he and XiaoXiaoIV had recruited before went inactive or joined other clans. The only members that came back where Malak, Nova, Trion, and Consequence (as a guest). The others were lost in the servers for the rest of time. shot0387.jpg
Newer members started to join such as Dark0ne, Bishop, ReaperFox, Von Durr (Apocalypse's Brother), Shadow, Martyr, Questlove, Omega aka Dark Adas or Bane, and Luke aka Cerberus. The ranks were filling as was the server. Popularity came to DE as not only members but guests and friends of members came on to visit the Dark Empire.

Conflicts within the Dark Empire
By three months Dark Empire had made two clan raids against Knights Reborn and Dark Jedi Empire. Both raids DJE and against KR was terrible. DE members and DJE members both fought hard but neither side caved, DE decided enough was enough and left. Dark Empire members killed each other was well as KR members and DE members were killed by KR members and their guests all before DE was banned from KR server for good.
Questlove was banned without Apocalypse's approval from Bane because she spammed "Hello. I am questlove." Which annoyed Bane. An inexcusable action, one of many Bane continued to do.
Dark Empire waged war against a Mexican clan known as AK for three weeks until the AK clan was annihilated. The war was provoked by the Dark Empire. Apocalypse and xXx when an AK member came on for friendly dueling and xXx and Apocalypse admin abused him and tortured him in the interrogation cells of Sithcouncilv2 map. He rage quit out of the -[DE]- server and returned with four AK members that were destroyed by Apocalypse and xXx. The raids came daily and each one was defeated by the Dark Empire until finally the Dark Empire took the raiding to them. Six Dark Empire members: Apocalypse, Martyr, Trion, xXx and two more went to their server and lamed the members of AK. We discovered they had a few modified sabers that I had and some of us used their own weapons against them. When the Dark Empire and AK members were all slept everybody in DE switched their names to the AK member names so the admins couldn't ban us without worrying of banning their own members. After ten minutes of sorting through IP addresses the AK banned the DE from their server and retaliated with another clan raid. Eventually Bane stepped in and hack-crashed their server until they gave up the war and declared DE victorious.
-[DE]- received hacker attention and the DE server was filled with Q3fill bots and crashed as well as chat hacked. Activity decreased and some even left for other clans. Apocalypse stood his ground against the hackers and found ways around them until finally the Dark Empire wasn't a target for hackers anymore. Hackers such as Anonymous, Katie, and Korn hacked the DE server and harassed its members.
Bane a Lord in DE who made it to the Darth title exclusively had intentions of taking over the Dark Empire and making it his own. He programed any future recruits he made that Apocalypse was a fool and needed to be taken over. Once Apocalypse found out about this treason Bane was stripped of his power and banned.
Apocalypse's computer was later hacked by a man named Fagen and wiped out clean. Which Apoc reversed with Norton Go Back. Making the computer lose all memory of viruses that wiped out the corruption.
.=¥= United Forces =¥=.
While all of the hacks and drama of the JKA world were raining upon the Dark Empire clan Apocalypse brought the idea up to Cerberus the only surviving Sith Lord of DE at the time that if the Dark Empire changed its name possibly temporarily, changed its IP address, Site location, and gave the server a password the drama would pass. Apocalypse came up with the idea United Forces a Sith and Jedi alliance. DE was previously turned down on a few recruits because of the fact -[DE]- was entirely a Sith clan. United Forces would fill that gap and make no excuses for future members not to join. Apocalypse would lead the Sith faction of United Forces known as Dark Empire of the Sith and Cerberus would lead the Jedi faction of United Forces known as the Jedi order. Apocalypse remained Dark Lord and Cerberus was promoted Jedi Grand Master. Making a password on the server limited popularity flow however but the benefits where no hackers, and a filtered flow of selected members.
The clan was once again running smoothly. Members such as Kenshiro and Sensei were promoted to Jedi and Sith Knight. Activity wasn't bad and people made an effort to bring in more Hopefuls/recruits.
Back at the Academy Jaina D'Kana was possibly thinking of taking Apocalypse as a Padawan. He was prepared and getting ready for whatever course of action was necessary. He had been attempting to gain the notice of Jaina ever since she showed him TJA. Even at TJA she was considered a phenomenal duelist by the others.
Then school started up again and Apoc didn't have much time for Jedi Knight Jedi Academy and neither did ninety percent of Apocalypse's clan it seems. Cerberus and Apocalypse decided to give the clan a 'break' until school was over with. Six more months pass and Martyr messaged Apoc asking if he would be willing to resurrect the Dark Empire of the Sith.
