Zablex explains what happened to him and Marka. "My curse cannot be revoked; the shadows said they'd allow us the means of survival and that meant Marka's natural competency with a lightsaber and the ability to derive sustinance from the Dark Side of the Force while I still cannot die and am left to be a pure melee fighter who carries and will protect Omniscience to his best. I made Omni a promise and I intend to keep it." The mindscape was still as comfortable and homey(?) as possible for Omni. Omni would've felt and comprehended what happened to Zablex and Marka but was unaffected by it as he never abused his power. Zablex looked at Massacre, "I guess I'll be a sort of close quarters, unkillable battle medic for everyone." He chuckles, "Well, I can't change the past and I cannot fully control the future so I shall tread the path my heart shall guide me down." Zablex says. Whatever happens, he will do his best to pass this "Trial of Self" and fulfill his promise to Omni; only now; with a proverbial monkey wrench complicating things a bit.
Marka, on the other hand, was feeling useless but could somehow feel Marius's hatred, suffering, anguish and rage calling upon the Dark Side. While he was glad for the sustinance he was worried. "Sar," he asks, "What would happen to Marius if he became consumed or enthralled by the Dark Side of the Force?" The emotions Marius was feeling and utilizing were calling upon the power of the Dark Side and could have very adverse effects depending on the individual and the species. (@Runa). Marka's strength was returning but slowly due to his own emotional state of being broken and perceiving himself as useless without his powers.
