Mar couldn't help but chuckle at Serenity's fumbling over the code. Granted, it was a rather dull and stilted code to begin with, Mar had indeed learned the code though not during his own training as a Sith. His first hearing the Jedi code came later. It was something he had burned into his memory along with the Sith code during his arduous training.

"There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force."

He looked at her and nodded. "I want you to meditate on these words, as well as the code of the Sith..." He knew that it would no doubt be something she would initially be averse to doing, however he added this as an incentive. "It is always wise to understand your enemy. So repeat after me..."

"Peace is a lie. There is only Passion.
Through Passion I gain Strength.
Through Strength I gain Power.
Through Power I gain Victory.
Through Victory my chains are Broken.
The Force shall free me."

"Once you've memorized them both, I want you to ponder on them. Think of the aspects that are similar to these two codes, their faults, their similarities, their truths and falsehoods. We will speak of this later when you have done this. Until then, let's focus at the task at hand, we have a Sith to hunt."
