Smuggler’s Canyon-Gall-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

New Republic troopers attempt to play relief effort with a horde of Imperial citizens abandoned after the Defeat at Endor six years earlier; the group is personally led by General Wedge Antilles.

Wedge: (passing a crate) please except our charity! Without these provisions you’re all likely…

One of the Storm troopers shoves the crate away from himself; a New Republic vanguard draws his pistol. Causing a uproar from the native imperials. 

Stormtrooper: take yur stinkin ill gotten gains and depart this world! Our emperor will provide for us once he’s rid the galaxy of you rebel scum!

Wedge: I wouldn’t count on that! Since you people won’t let us take you off this rock, I assumed you’d at least accept our aid!

Stormtrooper: take yur hospitality and shove it! Only charity you do us would be round up and haul the old garrison commanders’ runt off of dis rock! You can find him down in the canyon.

Wedge: (speaking into comlink) these savages outcast a child!? Get me any and all available boots on the ground, were saving at least one person from this planet boys.

The new republic vanguard cheers as they sprint away from the native looking Imperial village.

-Hours Later-

Comm-board operator Gigin-Taue Soear stumbles down a treacherous goat path, nearly plummeting to his death at every misstep.

Gigin-Taue Soear: (whining into comlink) I’m a technician not a trooper for kriffs sake! Why are we risking the frigate for some little imp kid!

Wedge: (via comlink) Soear could you bolt that attitude down! I know your dad’s a valuable asset to Red Squadron, but I’m your C.O and I need you to put your chin up! That’s an order. Now cut the chatter.

Soear traverses the rocky terrain with continued foppishness and comes upon the blasted out remains of the Imperial Enclave; the heavily damaged ruins are a deserted wasteland.

Whilst marching down the main avenue Gigin-Taue regards a half melted statue of the Emperor, as Soear turns his back upon the decaying edifice a ravenous Cliff Wampa pounces from its obscured perch.

The technician is easily subdued by the hulking creature and snatched up into the air for consumption within range of the carnivorous beast’s teeth.

A spear pierces its stomach wide open spilling its intestines upon the cracked permacrete.

The beast falls upon its back dead revealing a young man attired in rags; Soear gasps at this sight while regaining his footing.

Gigin-Taue Soear: (flabbergasted) dear me my boy that was all quite dashing and…outright heroic.

Cas-Lo Vont: (hacking off horns) spare me….they don’t taste that great with a load of human tissue in their gut.

Gigin-Taue Soear: oh…you wouldn’t happen to be the outcast boy now would you?

Cas-Lo Vont: (taken aback) haven’t noticed any others…..

The boy quickly rends the edible flesh from the Wampa carcass and scurries towards a caved in structure; Soear follows him inside. Within the demolished structure, the young boy sits across from an Eviscerated skeleton rolling bloody meat down a skewer allowing spatter to rain down upon himself unabated.

Cas-Lo Vont: (blithely staring) so dinner for three huh?

Gigin-Taue Soear: (aghast) I don’t believe your…companion will require sustenance my young friend, you and I however should get back to the landing party?

Cas-Lo Vont: (chewing raw meat)..ummm. So yur like what galactic charity? What’s taken so long in getting out here anyways? Been rougher than this for the last six years pal!

Gigin-Taue Soear: ‘tis about to get a whole lot rougher my young friend…what with the Clone Emperor and his Dark Empire rampaging about the space ways.

Upon the mention of the Emperor, the young boy stops chewing and stares at the skeleton.

Cas-Lo Vont: (vehemently) lead me from here….now Samaritan.

Gigin-Taue Soear: why I thought we’d partake in some of the local delicacy here first.

As if to hasten their retreat, Cas-Lo kicks over his fire pit setting ablaze to the hovel and causing Soear to bolt from the entrance. The young boy stands with his back to Soear regarding the blaze; the technician rises to his full height and places a hand upon the boys shoulder.

Gigin-Taue Soear: whose remains where those boy?

Cas-Lo Vont: (bulldozing past Soear) ….the garrison commanders wife, how far is your ship Samaritan?

Gigin-Taue Soear: (rushing to keep up) just a few paces back up that way, names Gigin-Taue by the way; Soear…huh

Cas-Lo Vont: (bounding up the path) they ever round up the garrison commander?

Gigin-Taue Soear: (winded) oh no, way I hear it most of the lesser imperial garbage was lost years ago…

The young man extends his hand to the older man and pulls him up to his level, revealing they’d already scaled the cliff in unnatural time. The shuttle awaits them with Wedge and his Vanguard ascending its ramp. They quickly sprint to it.

Wedge: (slapping Vont on the shoulder) young Vont eh? Swear I’d heard that name recently, best you get aboard. Need you at the comm-station Soear; sounds like our hero squad just went missing in the deep core.

Gigin-Taue Soear: but what would take them all that wa…

Wedge: (ushering them up the ramp) stow the curiosity! I helped vape two Death Stars Even I don’t know any details, its top level headliner headache stuff; not for guys like us to worry about.

The ship blasts off and speeds into the atmosphere of Gall.

Emperor’s Citadel-Byss-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

A horde of S’kytri warriors bow before the Clone Emperor swearing allegiance, as a hologram flares into existence.

T’iaz: (via hologram) my lord emperor…

Clone Emperor: as you can see disciples continue to flood my ranks! What news do you bring to my ears?

T’iaz: (via hologram) our collaborator Zann has done his part and left our employ. Your enemies are on Tython; Vont is their captive.

Clone Emperor: (enraged) unacceptable! The gungan was to be their demise! And they captured our man Vont! Unacceptable!

S’kytri Warrior: I pledge my life and that of my warriors’ Mein emperor! Your nemesis will plead for mercy and we will offer none!

Clone Emperor: excellent, prepare yourselves…

The clone sprints from his throne and extends his arms expelling massive amounts of dark force lightening.

From his conjured energy spurts a massive storm that rips a hole through the atmosphere of Byss and devours whole star fleets in orbit as it cuts an unnatural passage across the Deep Core.

The mighty Force Storm causes ground quakes and rumbles the emperor’s citadel.

The winged warriors begin stretching their wings and almost leap into the wormhole.

Clone Emperor: (shouting) halt! I will not send another set of warriors against the Jedi without adequate leadership….bring in the Sarcophagi!

As the holographic form of T’iaz flickers out of existence Vile servants of the emperor emerge atop hover pods each hauling a stone Sarcophagi. the clone shatters the stones whilst infusing the bodies with raw power.

Clone Emperor: rise my friends! You shall partake in my vengeance upon the Jedi; Darth Miseria your darkness still engulfs the deepest forests of your native Kashyyk!

Clone Emperor: Darth Amok, ravenous slayer of all that crossed your ambitions!

Clone Emperor: Darth Rile, the fallen angel renowned for precipitating false hope in entire civilizations!

Clone Emperor: Darth Ceratis, the miser whom seduced the very fortune that funded the Revenge of the Sith!

The undead sith lords are sucked into the Force storm as followed by the S’kytri warriors, the storm vanishes from Byss.

Clone Emperor: (shrinking back into his throne) everything is going exactly as planned…

Ramp of the Millennium Falcon-Tython-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The Falcon skims the tree line as it makes an unorthodox landing in a densely overgrown tinderbox forest.

Artoo-Deeto emerges on the hull of the ship as a groggy Han Solo rushes down the ramp of his vessel and quickly does an inspection sprint around it.

Han Solo: (drawing blaster) you check every bolt up there! Or so help me…

Artoo-Deeto: (beeps and whistles)

The Jedi corral Vont and Binks down the ramp and deposit them on their knees with unlit Lightsaber hilts at their backs.

Luke Skywalker: han ease down, we brought it down smoother than I’ve ever seen you handle anything.

Chewbacca: (growls)

Jar Jar Binks: (whining) mesa..mesa…

Dilbun Vont: (grunting) stow it ya kriffin…

The Ganathan king floats down the ramp following Ken whom stares off in the distance.

Ken: what a strange new world?

Empatajayos Brand: there’s nothing new about this planet young one…according to the navi-computer were in the deep core, gonna be hard to plot a trajectory outta here for one thing.

Luke Skywalker: ok, since we’ve got no holonet feed out here and were in enemy territory. We need to at least inspect the temple I saw on the way down, before we high tail it outta here. So who’s coming and whose stayin?

In a blur of motion a lower hatch on the hull of the Falcon drops to reveal a flatbed airspeeder.

Han Solo: whoevers coming; pile in.

Solo and Chewbacca climb into the cockpit, while Brand levitates Vont into the bed of the craft. Bey,Skywalker,Solusar, Ysanna and Ken sit down as the craft speeds from the Falcon.

Galley of the Millennium Falcon-Tython-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The captive Gungan sits sulking across from the cylindrical form of Artoo.

Jar Jar Binks: (whining) yousa knowsa mesa! Why don’t yousa tells dhem!

Artoo-Deeto: (beeps and whistles)

Jar Jar Binks: (whining) it’s not mysa faultesa! What are yousa sayin?

The cylindrical droid extends its buzz saw and approaches the Gungan.

Whill Temple-Tython-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Han’s speeder comes to a halt outside a diminutive temple in severe disarray.

Ken: gee goly, a lil temple…

Luke Skywalker: rayf, ken come with me.

Luke and the young recruits crawl into the temple doorway.

Dilbun Vont: oh, so iz need dis many babysitters…

Han Solo: (loading an energy pack into an blaster rifle) wanna see how I earned my bloodstripe?

Whill Shaman Hall-Tython-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Luke and his recruits crawl into a vast chamber where a dozen green gnome-like creatures sit Indian style meditating. Skywalker assumes a bowing position and enters a meditative state, Rayf and Ken follow suit.

Luke Skywalker: don’t bother boys, there eons into the nether realm of the force. We cannot catch up with them; our only hope is to find a younger one.

Ken: correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t they the same race as yoda?

Luke Skywalker: your eyes can deceive you; I’m more inclined to believe they’ve assumed this form to prey upon my feelings.

Rayf Ysanna: (grabbing saber hilt) shifters?

Luke Skywalker: no our literal eyes Rayf! Force illusions aren’t very advanc…

A statuesque shaman awakes.

Yopple: (gravely) suspicious you are? Our true forms these are..yes. Help you we can… not.

Ken: but why!

Yopple: (gravely) elude us concept of choice does, infinite is the nature of the force…rooted in fate we are…accepting of physical actions the whill shaman are not. Knights of the Jedi….disrupt the flow…they do…clash with naturalness …Lords of the Sith…incite chaos…devour lives unnaturally.…

Luke Skywalker: I accept your admonishment; but implore you to reconsider. I am the student of a member of your species..surely your teachings must have bein…

Yopple: (gravely) sought solitude amongst the stars many of our kind have …sought our knowledge many have…understood it….few have…pollute the nether realm of the force!…some now do…natural is our communion within the nether realm….unnatural is it to imprint oneself…upon the nether realm. ..Twisted have our teachings been…

Luke Skywalker: twisted! the ability to forget how to die? I owe my life to interactions with force apparitions…..if only you shamans would dedicate yourselves to preserving life!

Yopple: (gravely) the guardians of peace and justice the Jedi are supposed to be…changed has this?

Luke Skywalker: while I respect your commitment to peace, I can assure you that the clone emperor only offers obliteration!…how do the whill shamans intend to sit upon their hands when all you’re left with are cauterized stumps?

Yopple: preservation of one’s self, bellies a lapse of faith in the natural currents of the force.

Ken: but…

Yopple: choice, we do not accept! The will of the force cannot be broken…

Luke Skywalker: may the force be with you.

Yopple: with all it is…despite greater concentrations.

Whill Temple-Tython-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont: (staring down blaster rifle) so ya gots any phoods?

At the mention of sustenance; the mighty Chewbacca starts foraging through the brush.

Han Solo: (looking away from vont) god damn it chewie, quit thinking with yur stomach!

Solusar and Solo break their boundary protection and focus on Vont. During their distraction, the masters of Teräs Käsi spring from the trees and overtake the Wookiee and New Republic agent.

After wounding Bey, Hoar lunges towards Solusar who attempts a force push. The crazed Tusken’s advance goes unchecked as solusar continues to stand his ground; unaffected via the Force Hoar hammers the Jedi with his Gaderffii stick, Solusar takes every blow.

The cybernetic Jedi descends upon the scene only to be picked off midair by the chaotic style of Arden Lyn. Amidst the chaos, Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha speeds over to the airspeeder, Vont jumps behind Ren, the swoop speeds away.

Dilbun Vont: (clinging to Swoop) betta not’ve used all mai kriffin Ysalamiri!

Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha: we’s only toasted a couple bags! You knows dare grease also keeps ya blocked from da kriffin jeti!

Dilbun Vont: (chugging a flask of Ysalamiri grease) if it haz to taste like dhis; don’t care if da bastages can sense me!

The swoop speeds into the dense forest, while at the entrance to the temple Captain Solo is the recipient of a severe thrashing from Arden Lyn.

Han Solo: (attempting to regain footing) ….dirty karkin steel hands!

Arden Lyn: (knocking solo out with a kick to the face) may a rancor pick his teeth with your bones!

Hoar: (Tusken battle cry while waving Gaderffii)

As Solo hits the dirt, Skywalker and his New Jedi Order recruits emerge from the entrance of the Whill Temple; at the sight of many defeated comrades young Ken sprints from the squat position required to navigate the diminutive structure.

Ken: (engaging lightsaber) I’ll save everyone!

Luke Skywalker: (bangs head attempting to jump to his feet) Ken! Noooo!

Rayf Ysanna: (attempting to catch ken) master! I cannot feel?

Luke Skywalker: it’s a Ysalamiri force void! Stop him!

The young Jedi hopeful is charged with brute force by the obese Thok whom wastes no time in effectively disabling the young human.

Skywalker can only watch as Arden Lyn abducts his young recruit and escapes aboard a rapidly departing landing craft which lifts into the skies as quickly as it appeared. Skywalker falls to his knees in disgrace.

Docking bay of the Ravager XIII-Orbit of Tython-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Mere seconds after the shoddy landing craft settles upon its creaking landing gears, the ramp comes down and Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha speeds from the craft atop his swoop.

He is forced to abruptly veer away from the forms of Hayt and T’iaz whom stand at foot of the ramp. The burly biker crashes into a pile of rubbish as Vont leads the Masters of Teräs Käsi down the ramp with their captive.

Dilbun Vont: watch where yur goin dare, chubbs dats be valuable cargos…well if it ain’t the strum with a bite.

Hayt: (taking vont by the arm) at your service.

Vont chokes at the response to his underhanded advance, as the Dark Acolyte produces a hologram projector; wherein flares to life a representation of the Clone Emperor.

T’iaz: (holding Holo-projector and engaging lightsaber) his supreme majesty has concerns…

Clone Emperor: (via hologram) why does the Son of Vader still live!

Dilbun Vont: we gots da kriffin kid! Once you git yur keester in emm you can rain hell down upon da jeedai!

T’iaz: such insolence will not be….!

Clone Emperor: (via hologram) quit your speaking! Hayt; I believe it is time for you to convince Dilbun of his duties.

Hayt: (taking vont by the arm) as you wish.

Vont is led by Hayt from the docking bay, as the Dark Acolyte turns the Hologram projector towards the captive Jedi Recruit.

Clone Emperor: (via hologram) aww, such a young boy.

Ken: (exclaiming) leave me alone!

Clone Emperor: (via hologram) nice and stupid looking too.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) I’m gittin too old fur dis fodder….

Orbit of Iskalon-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The Millennium Falcon is chased into the upper atmosphere of Iskalon by the massive form of a dilapidated Star Destroyer. The Ravager XIII spurts a barrage of laser fire across the Falcon’s erratic trajectory; all shots are ridiculously misplaced.

Cockpit of the Millennium Falcon-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Han Solo: you’d think these gunners would be a little better than imps!

Chewbacca: (growls)

Bey: it’s a fairly common dragnet formation, they want us in atmosphere.

Han Solo: (screaming) get your karkin force loving keesters to the guns!

As the Jedi sprint towards the gunner stations, a stun pulse disables the falcon’s power. The vessel ‘s controlled decent gives way to a rapid plummet towards a violent storm ridden aquatic world.

The Ravager XIII halts its pursuit and deposit’s a swarm of speeders that speed after the disabled freighter. 

Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha tows another Swoop bike alongside his own and leads the charge to the hull of the falcon.

As Dilbun sheds his space suit and free falls backwards onto the awaiting swoop bike, without a seconds hesitation Vont engages the muscle bike and pops a air wheelie while speeding to the vessel. The swoop swarm opens fire on the vessel at random.

Galley of the Millennium Falcon-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Han,Bey and Chewie frantically tear into the mechanical alcove of the freighter while Luke leads his warriors to the airlock of the ship.

Bey: this was old school, a kriffin stun pulse!

Chewbacca: (violently bashes replacement parts into place)

Han Solo: cool it chewie! Gotta replace all the flux regulators in the right sequence!

Luke Skywalker: (rushing to the airlock) artoo assist them!

In a blur of motion the aged Astromech extends a multitude of arms and proceeds to replace all the remaining devices, freeing up the three sentient life forms.

Artoo-Deeto: (whistles and beeps)

Han Solo: (sprinting from the alcove) just earned your charge lil buddy!

Bey: yeah we might just crash now, instead of getting pancaked on the ocean floor.

Hull of the Millennium Falcon-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

An veritable dance of chaos plays out around the spinning disabled freighter; Jedi spring into the air batting aside laser barrages as fired by the Swoop bike swarm. Personal battles are engaged at random, as the Force Sensitive’s launch themselves at the oncoming bikers and cleave off portions of the swoops while effortlessly returning to the hull of the falcon.

Rayf Ysanna: (deflecting laser bolts) direct it back at them ken!

Ken: (clumsily batting away bolts) I’m doing my best!

As the two young men engage in a mini haggle, a pack of swoops descend upon them and close in for the kill. Luke and Kam back flip towards the pack in tandem and crash the bikes together via the force, while landing next to the young men.

Luke Skywalker: we can kill in knowledge or defense! This is life or death ken! Use the force!

Ken: sure thing master!

Kam Solusar: (back flipping towards an oncoming speeder) just let the force guide you!

The Falcon continues to barrel roll amidst the chaotic battle, Dilbun Vont flies dangerously close to the ship while firing off both his swoops canon and his own blaster rifle. The bolts startle the small gathering of Jedi atop the hull, he is denied a certain kill by the self-propelled cybernetic Ganathan king whom physically bashes Vont across the chest hurling him from the bike. The lunatic grabs a hold of Brand.

Empatajayos Brand: unhand me you scurvy thug!

Dilbun Vont: (struggling to keep attached to the bulky form) hows the stomach feelin there ya old blowhard!

At the sudden recognition, Brand thrashes Vont about as if juggling the man about him and catching him in his cybernetic and force assisted telekinetic hold. Vont is pinned by the throat to the hull of the Falcon by Brand’s metallic claws.

Empatajayos Brand: you, your..him!

Dilbun Vont: (experiencing the violent inertia) ain’t I more proper dare? Mista jeedai investgata!

Empatajayos Brand: eighteen sets of head tails! Eighteen shattered lives! What was the point of it!

Dilbun Vont: you’re half man, and you still be cryin ova kriffin twi’lek strums? Dose wenches where nuthin buty play dings, sumtimes the play ends in a gurgling mess of…

Empatajayos Brand: (tightening his grip) justice will be done upon you! By the force it will.

While the mighty vessel veers out of control and side swipes a portion of the air speeder gang, Luke engages several swoops telekinetically directing his light saber via the force.

Vont’s swoop gang flees just as the ship comes within range of the raging waters and a small band of mount riding warriors emerge from the sea pulling an bubble of oxygen around the falcon and pull it down into the depths.

Desolation Alley-Oovo IV-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

A study stream of guards are hacked, slashed and blasted at point blank range by the marauding Defilers as the Dark Acolyte T’iaz and the Stormtrooper Archetype Hayt march to the cell of their Quarry. Within the cell Tyber Zann stands with his back to the door holding a chopped blaster at the base of a man’s skull.

T’iaz: (igniting lightsaber) put that crude weapon away and rejoin your fleet!

Tyber Zann: (turning round)  just checking his eyesight.

As Zann retreats from the cell, an single tear drop from the eye on the back of the occupants head drips down his neck.

Hayt: (producing hologram projector) under normal circumstances, one would be required to turn round to interact with a hologram…

Triclops: (with back turned) perhaps you‘d care to sample my other abnormality…

A life sized hologram of the Clone Emperor flares to life, and paces around the occupant, instantly causing a physical display of fear.

Clone Emperor: (via hologram)…still so weak…still so ill-formed..

Triclops: (turning to stare at the hologram) here I was under the impression those where just familial qualities.

T’iaz: (raising saber) you will not!….

Clone Emperor: (via hologram) quit your speaking Acolyte! and you mutant; dare not consider yourself my true progeny! Your nothing but a failed experiment….

Triclops: (spitting mad)….why bother me!

Clone Emperor: (via hologram) like all things in this realm, you have your purpose….oh yes, you have an inkling of what I speak do you not my unfortunate remnant?

Triclops: (rapid eye movement) such degeneration of tissue cannot be stemmed with Midi-Chlorian infusions….

Clone Emperor: (via hologram) sadly a parasitic organism this clone body has been stricken of and you lack altogether even after having been conceived via there usage; akin to my wise master Plagueuis’s prize broodmare Shmi Skywalker…

Triclops: (rapid eye movement) you intend to put me out to stud!? Like some prize Nerf?

Clone Emperor: (via hologram) what more could a simpering nutcase muto ask for?! Desires don’t come into this!

The hologram flares out of existence as T’iaz lifts the mutant in the air via the force and levitates him out the cell.

Hayt: (marching down the hall) you were saying something about your..other abnormality?

Depths of Iskalon-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The ship is pulled towards a massive shelled fortress overlooking the sea floor.

The mounted riders drag the Bubble encased Falcon along vacant swim ways and barnacle covered structures, the bubble is set down upon a landing berth. Within the oxygen bubble a small battalion of Nejema warriors haul Luke’s new Jedi Order and Han’s small band into another oxygen bubble, Several warriors tug the bubble out of the falcon’s and into the shelled castle.

Han Solo: atleast were not gonna get soggy.

Dilbun Vont: fraid of gittin wet? Ya karkin spice smuggler!

Chewbacca: (rages and moves towards vont)

Nejema Warrior: (slapping trident towards chewie)

The Jedi ignite their Sabers at the sight of the electrified tridents pointed at their wookiee friend. The bubble arrives at the throne of the Chuhyvi regent; Kiro. Who quickly swims towards the bubble.

Luke Skywalker: yes, my friend. Please explain our being here…

Kiro: by what right do you risk my kingdom!

The entire group is taken aback by the sudden outburst.

Ken: hey there mister let’s not have any…

Nejema Warrior: (in Iskalonian) silence!

Kiro: one would assume you of all people; would foresee the consequences of your actions! Half my subjects have reacted out of fear, and in a mass ceremony taken their lives.

Luke Skywalker: but…why!

Kiro: My life would also be forfeit, In fear of imperial slavery if I myself lacked the courage that stands here denying the Jedi order! 

Luke Skywalker: kiro…I need you, the order needs you! With you at my side we can defeat the emperor..forever.

Kiro: from where I stand your order appears to be swelling with willing recruits; whom all lack the same foresight as you when attempting to fulfill the will of the force. Did it not occur to anyone of you that if I desired to serve your new Jedi order that I’d already be at your side! I have no interest beyond this world.

Luke Skywalker: very well, may the…

Kiro: not so fast; in an effort to retain neutrality I decree the release of your captive.

Empatajayos Brand: whatever wickedness vont does from here on in will be upon your head, kiro!

Kiro: may I remind you of the lives you Jedi now carry upon your heads for merely seeking me out? Therefore this captives release will restore the balance!

Frustrated by the neutral act, Han fires off a stun beam on Vont. As the elderly man begins to slip out of the bubble, he is caught by the mighty Chewbacca whom cradles the man.

Kiro: may you quit inferring your own desires unto the galaxy, via the force.

The Nejema warriors drag the bubble containing our heroes back to the Falcon. Chewbacca drags the still unconscious Vont up the ramp as Luke and his followers look back at the shelled fortress.

Bey: (going up the ramp) I’ll call in an Assault Frigate, we can atleast protect Iskalon from space.

Ken: maybe King Kiro’ll join us once he sees how much the Republic will protect him.

Han Solo: (stopping at the base of the ramp) don’t count on it kid, were lucky if we get off this sponge unskinned.

Rayf Ysanna: (running up ramp) I’ll secure the prisoner!

Solusar follows the younger Recruits up the ramp, leaving Brand and Skywalker behind still regarding the massive shelled fortress.

Empatajayos Brand: this is precisely why the old order only accepted infantile candidates. If only we were strong enough to leave an watchmen behind for this sector, your friend could turn to the dark side and…

Luke Skywalker: and what then em I supposed to do strike him down like a womp rat! He saved me from Lumiya! He’d never turn to the..

Empatajayos Brand: your friend he may be, but once one has tasted fruit from the tree of evil, forever will it dominate their destiny!

Luke Skywalker: (violently turning to confront brand) then why do you entrust me with the new Jedi order! The only reason my father was able to bring balance to the force was because I subdued him while giving into the dark side!

Empatajayos Brand: (floating up the ramp) I place my trust in you, because the force bids me to do so master Skywalker. Regardless of your past flirtations with the dark side; you are the one who will return righteousness to the galaxy..I have foreseen it.

Skywalker follows the cybernetic master aboard the falcon, immediately after the vessel blasts its way free of the bubble. The falcon escapes the water world unscathed, and docks with a newly arrived New Republic assault craft.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) nuthin worse dan a stanky wookiee…

Assault Frigate Mark I-Cabot‘s Folly-orbit of Iskalon-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The Millennium Falcon lands within the crafts large docking bay which is devoid of its Starfighter wing. The Crew is greeted by Holographic representatives of New Republic leaders: Mon Mothma of Chandrila, Borsk Fey‘lya of Kothlis, Ackbar of Dac and Garm Bel Iblis of Corellia.

Borsk Fey’lya: (via hologram) intelligence service agent Bey tells us, your mission to secure Kiro’s assistance has met utter failure? If this is indeed true than why are we risking this communication and the valuable assets of this craft to your…

Empatajayos Brand: oh do I enjoy the pointlessness of Bothan Politics! The iskalonian schools require at least the semblance of a protective garrison. I do believe Palpatine’s Dark Empire is weaker than at first thought, the mere prescience of a lone New Republic craft would arouse fear of a larger garrison on the surface.

Ackbar: (via hologram) a cunning diversionary tactic indeed.

Han Solo: more like a trap.

Garm Bel Iblis: (via hologram) spoken like a true prodigy, but don’t get too cocky. Cabot’s folly is little more than the shell of a frigate disguising a holo-net buoy, it goes offline a fighter wing appears and saves the day.

Mon Mothma: (via hologram) regardless of the ploy, master skywalker we need you and your Jedi recruits back at base.

Luke Skywalker: we will return with all speed, only when were confident of having lost our trackers.

Bey: as I mentioned in my slip stream communiqué; we have taken an imperial sympathizer captive.

At that moment New Republic soldiers escort Dilbun Vont down the ramp of the Falcon, as followed by another captive.

Borsk Fey’lya: (via hologram) I thought you said you only had one captive?

The assembled heroes all turn in shock at the appearance of a tall gangril creature attired in simplistic rags.

Chewbacca: (growls)

Ken: gee golly, maybe he’s a friendly stowaway from the depths of Iskalon…

Borsk Fey’lya: (via hologram) contain yourself boy, we’ll interrogate him all the same, aside from new republic soldiers. The folly is blessed by the prescience of a small bothan unit…

Garm Bel Iblis: (via hologram) if memory serves, Jedi are immune to pandering.

Empatajayos Brand: well spotted senator.

Luke Skywalker: may the force be with you.

The holograms crackle out of existence, as bothan soldiers assume a line around the captives.

Dilbun Vont: woulda thought you stanky bastages coulda caught wind of yur arses by now!

Bothan Soldier: (punching vont in the face) bite your tongue!

Dilbun Vont: (narration) oh the familiar sights and sounds…

Medical Suite-Cabot’s Folly-orbit of Iskalon -10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

An clunky 2-1B droid inspects both Vont and the lanky shriveled gangril creature.

2-1B: interesting…the human subject’s brain functions are ill regular…perhaps a synaptic anomaly and or disease that affects synapses function thus resulting in unstable psychosis.

Han Solo: not so loud there rust head, don’t need this old codger claiming insanity and getting on galactic aid like every other bum…

Vont attempts to lunge at Solo, but is caught by the mighty Chewbacca whom takes the elderly man in a choke hold while attempting to pull his arm from its socket. The Bothan soldiers aim their blasters at the wookiee, while the new republic soldiers fix their aim on Vont.

Bey: to whom are the Bothans aligned? The new republic or Fringe scum.

Dilbun Vont: (grunting) wookiees an bothans both dink dar fodda don’t stank! Dhink you’d have cross bread by now!

Bothan Solider: (pressing blaster) blasphemer!

Chewbacca: (rages)

Luke’s new Jedi order enters the medical suite and levitates the arguing parties around Vont.

Luke Skywalker: just because we cannot breach your diseased mental mind; does not mean we cannot perceive deliberate hate mongering.

Bothan Solider: stop this devilry!

Kam Solusar: perhaps a single rotation around your puppeteer would cement this lesson in your minds.

Han Solo: (floating) unless you want a complete and total barf-a-rama in here, put me down!

Dilbun Vont: so much fur negiotationz…

2-1B: furthermore; the other subject is not of the Iskalonian schools. He is in fact a member of the Gungan race native to the swamp lands of Naboo.

Dilbun Vont: dat artsy farsy kriff hole.

Ken: could you mind your language sir?

Dilbun Vont: (breaking out in laughter) dis karkin bastages kiddin rite? Woulda neva thunk da heir at da empire’d be a Jedai cream puff..

Ken: (gasps) but that’s supposed to be super-secret!

Empatajayos Brand: (hovering towards Vont) his deviousness knows no bounds.

Luke Skywalker: I’ll interrogate him..alone.

The bothan soldiers haul an unruly Vont down a corridor. As the group turns their attention towards the crusty gungan.

Jar Jar Binks: (coughing and wheezing) messa jar jar binks; wasssa reprezentesa ov da senatea longo timeo ago. Also big ol’ pallo of da jeedai kinghtsa.

Kam Solusar: sadly he appears to believe his own story.

Luke Skywalker: perhaps we can move his façade aside…

Empatajayos Brand: I’m sorry to contradict you master, but neither his intellect nor conciseness are strong enough to endure such a mind probe. Regardless I don’t recall their being a gungan in the old senate.

Han Solo: (exiting room) never was a big fan of politicians, so don’t ask me.

Bey: (closely looking at binks) wouldn’t senators’ mothma and bel iblis have recognized him? You guys go on with the scumbag; I’ll check him for spy class injection punctures.

Artoo-Deeto: (beeps laughter)

Cargo Hold-Cabot’s Folly-orbit of Iskalon -10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Vont sits on a crate with his back to the door, Skywalker jaunts into the chamber. The motion causes his dark attire to catch the air, vont chuckles.

Luke Skywalker: Jedi interrogation methods might be funny to an imperial sleemo; but I assure you they can be more than affective.

Dilbun Vont: (barely containing laughter) spare me da kriffin act ya lil runt! Yer threads gots me cracklin; wut are you supposed to be mini vader?

Luke Skywalker: sometimes the sight of a dark clad figure with a light saber is enough to quell an uprising…sadly not often.

Dilbun Vont: (recovering from hilarity) otay, as long as you believe dat.

Luke Skywalker: nevertheless; I’d be eternally grateful if you’d care to share the source of your intel…

Dilbun Vont: (pounding a beat on his knee) oh..such purty words from a moisture farmer; I’m eternally delighted. First ovv; information brokers like all tend to let slip a great many dhings when presented with dare own I em sure you’ll one day come ta understand…sure helped yur paps outta amany binds.

Luke Skywalker: this has nothing to do with… I’m to believe you’ve had dealings with Talon Karrde within the last year or so?

Dilbun Vont: (begins tapping foot in tune) thrawn’s delta source wasa known by amany whom had at time or another taken upa roots in da imperial palace…ha, you dhink I’d pay Karrde for crud I can git for free?

Luke Skywalker:  assuming what limited intelligence we’ve pieced together regarding the emperor’s inner circle is correct. You were placed firmly outside of it; The terrestrial moon of Gall; an important post. Yes; but not at all a trusted one. But then again why would an coward like Palpatine want an psychopath at his back; one whom if he’d had the brains or ambition to rise above his petty stature could have spared the galaxy the Madness of the…

Dilbun Vont: (slapping fingers against bumping knee intone) so how’s the fam? extra crispy.

Lars Homestead-Great Chott Salt Flat, Tatooine-0 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Vont stands in front of two writhing human forms raining flame down upon them, his eyes are stung with the sweat caused by the power of duel suns and the human bonfire he continues to tend even after the last bits of humanity are shed from the bodies.

Darth Vader: (via hologram) well done Vont.

Dilbun Vont: naw, deez dweebz are gonna be blackened!

Vont continues to pour flame upon the smoking bodies as a crimson glass forms beneath them, the putrid smoke bellows into the sun drenched worlds sky.

Cargo Hold-Cabot’s Folly-orbit of Iskalon -10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Luke brandishes his light saber hilt and telekinetically presses it against vont’s throat while also lifting him into the air. His comrades attempt to enter the chamber; but luke barricades it via the force.

Dilbun Vont: (levitating with saber hilt pressed at his throat) the sands of Tatooine praduz a purty glass when exposed taa flame thrower longa enuff….best part hada though bein dhem squellin yur name…

Luke Skywalker: (under his breath) uncle…owen…aunt beru…..

Dilbun Vont: (levitating with saber hilt pressed at his throat) Dat wuz dare names..oh yea? Dhing I neva understood wuz; wut the krif doez a nineteen year old need with a toy sky hopper? When he’s gots a real one!

At that moment two light saber blades begin cutting a hole in the door, luke uses the force to short out their blades while standing below the wiggling form of Vont.

Dilbun Vont: (levitating with saber hilt pressed at his throat)  atleast yur pa had the minerals to heft my arse without the kriffin force! Ya moisture farmin runt!

at the mention of Vader, skywalker releases his hold over the situation and exit’s the chamber in disgrace.

Luke Skywalker: (hastily exiting) I no longer trust myself in the thrall of the force. It truly desires as you and I might.

Brand hovers after him, as a group of Bothan agents enter the chamber. The chamber closes.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) chairin farmers iz da only dhing dat eva called me away from Bantha huntin…

Corridors-Cabot’s Folly-orbit of Iskalon -10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Skywalker speeds through the corridors of the vessel while in despair; the cybernetic form of Brand keeps up with him nonetheless.

Empatajayos Brand: this order cannot survive your continued self-doubt, solusar already suspected your fragility. Now all of them except ken see it. The order must rise again luke…and you must be the one to lead it through these times.

Luke Skywalker: I ‘am no longer certain there should even be a new order! Let alone my place at its center, if only ben…

Empatajayos Brand: the dead cannot feel you through every debacle; dwelling upon their guidance will only lead us to death…is that what you seek?

Luke Skywalker: (turning to face brand) all I’ve seen in the force is turmoil…death upon death, the future promises nothing but agony and darkness.

Empatajayos Brand: as it always has; but what stands between all that you’ve seen?

Luke Skywalker: the light…..

Empatajayos Brand: without our sacrifices here and now; there won’t be anyone to wield it…look beyond yourself luke, the force encompasses all.

Cargo Hold-Cabot’s Folly-orbit of Iskalon -10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The Bothan soldiers salute Vont then hand him his Gungan Vibro-Axe.

Bothan Soldier: (placing axe in Vont’s hand) funds were received.

Dilbun Vont: here I wuz dhinkin ya furbags where gonna do dis for ol’ times sake.

In unison they proceed to slit their own throats in a non-lethal way. Vont soaks his vibro-axe in a puddle of Bothan blood and proceeds to wander out of his cell.

He sneaks into the medical suite where Binks is being examined by New Republic intelligence agent Bey. Before the agent turns round to notice Vont; a dart is clinging to his thigh.

Bey: (passing out) bundar root, you sleazy underhande….ed…sleee.

The large man hit’s the deck with an ominous thud; Binks slowly scales his eyes from the floor to the slowly advancing Vont.

Jar Jar Binks: (wheezing)  yousssa believes mesa…right? Pallo?

Dilbun Vont: (kicking bey in the gut) ya always where Augie’z greatest pawn in the old senate!

Jar Jar Binks: (stammering) yosa gonna tellsa dhem?

Dilbun Vont: oh no, yur gonna show em all jus how trusa worthesa yousa aresa!

Vont whispers a phrase into the elderly buffoon’s ear while placing the vibro-axe in his grip. Locked in a mental death command, Binks sets off in search of his victims.

Dilbun Vont: (speaking into com-link embedded in his arm) git redda to bring da pain Zann!

Observation Room-Emperor‘s Citadel-Byss-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The mutant and the clone emperor converse with one another within a deserted medical chamber, tended by a severe-looking Med-Droid which savagely examines Triclops.

Clone Emperor: since your reluctant to aid me in the pleasurable fashion,  were left no choice but to extract materials the clinical way my boy…

Triclops: (prodded by needle-fingered droid) don’t call me your boy!

Clone Emperor:  (producing holocron) how sentimental….but alas you assume much. There was a time when perhaps my spirit also made such mistakes as evidenced by my long vanquished master Plagueis’s finicky holocron.

The pyramidal holocron displays an recording of a young Palpatine being electrocuted by his master on a continual loop.

Triclops: (probed by needle-fingered droid)…you just bring out the best in all people now don’t you!?

Clone Emperor:  (sneering) on Naboo….seventy years ago I was a prince. Revered for my outward advances towards artistic political expressionism, but secretly I was….his.  I only share this insecurity with you because; your life is at an end boy. And perhaps with your death I will have purged my spirit of all that he hated about me…perhaps you’re the last remnant.

Triclops: (probed by needle-fingered droid)…what a fantasy.

Amidst the most critical stages an stun pulse disables all the mechanical devices within the chamber. Instantly a series of ventilation ducts pop open releasing a full Noghri hit squad, the sith lord ignites and tosses his light saber at the noghri descending upon him from the observational windows. Paying no attention to the ground based squad forming a circle as they charge towards the mutant and the disabled droid.

At the last moment Sidious takes notice of the Detnite canisters fastened to their bodies. The squad commits self-sacrifice in a ball of flame a mere four paces surrounding the clone emperor whom released a wave of telekinetic energy around himself as the canisters erupt.

The clone is not without mishap upon setting foot upon the scorched floor again, the powers expelled to protect himself caused his body to visibly degenerate further.

Amidst the rubble of the medical chamber, the mutant triclops lays aflame and pierced with shrapnel from the med droid.

The clone lets out an unholy howl of anger upon the sight of his lost cause.

Docking Bay-Cabot‘s Folly-orbit of Iskalon-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Luke Skywalker rapidly speeds towards the ramp of the Falcon; where his youngest Jedi recruits huddle around Artoo-Deeto..

Rayf Ysanna: so you just need an upgrade to be able to fly again?

Artoo-Deeto: (whistles and Beeps)

Ken: astral!

Luke Skywalker: lets curtail our glee, ken. I’d like to…

A Klaxon screams a proximity alert; the assault cruiser takes an direct impact. The Jedi ignite their light sabers in unison as Han and Chewie race down the Falcon’s ramp.

Han Solo: (loading blaster rifle) our com-signal was just blanketed! grab a blaster kids! Better to bury bolts than deflect em!

Chewbacca: (growls)

The group runs towards the direction of the klaxon, the scene they run into is one of utter chaos. The New Republic troops barely hold a line spraying bolts into an oncoming army of energy shielded droideka Mark II’s, and Defilers.

Han Solo and Chewbacca each fall to their knees and begin firing off rounds at the oncoming biological troops.

Luke,Kam and Brand dive headfirst into the onslaught whirling their sabers. The young recruits are slow to respond to the scene unfolding before them.  Luke and Brand fight their way to the front of the line in an effort to save the troops from the shielded droids.

Empatajayos Brand: (batting away bolts) fall back men! You need not be spent in this slaughter!

While Brand and Kam cover him, Luke uses the force to disrupt the Droidekas shields and hurls them back into their own ship.

The ensuing blast distracts all present, before the smoke can settle; an swarm of speeder bikes rocket down all four walls of the hallway, the Jedi are forced to flee.

As Solo turns to aim his blaster at another Defiler troop; his Blaster rifle is snatched from his grip and smashed in an Metallic hand.

Before the smuggler can draw his pistol; he receives a kick to the face that launches him across the hallway, the mighty Chewbacca rages towards his friends attacker only to receive an similar bashing from the combined duo of Arden Lyn and Hoar.

Arden Lyn: (punching) you are a pitiful fighter!

Hoar: (raining blows down upon chewie with Gaderffii stick)

The duo quickly brings the Wookiee down but do not slow the pace of their brutal attack in the least, as the mighty Chewbacca begins to pass out the Gammorean Thok lumbers towards the scene twirling his Great Vibro-Axe in anticipation of the kill.

Thok: (raising axe and snorting)

Arden Lyn: cleave his head intween!

The Mighty Chewbacca levels a kick towards Hoar launching him back into the Zann craft as Thok brings his hefty axe down upon his head; only for the wookiee to violently grab hold of the unwieldy weapon and bash it against its users face. Thok staggers about choking up his own teeth; While Chewie fetches Solo from the ground and flees back down the corridor.

Arden Lyn: (sprinting after the Wookiee) imbeciles!

As the Teräs Käsi warrior runs to catch Chewie, An ship-wide klaxon erupts; at its sounding the attackers break off their advance retreating back aboard their craft.

The Folly blasts into light speed; Vont is yet again left for dead by his comrades as they escape within their own vessel. Brand and Skywalker find the bridge crew murdered and a sobbing binks.

Jar Jar Binks: (crying) mesa…mesa…didn’t.

Empatajayos Brand: sadly, you did.

Luke Skywalker: (studying blood soaked navi-computer) where are we bound?

      Jar Jar Binks: (crying) mesa, mesa…mesa..only remembers mechna doc…

Empatajayos Brand: he’s been programmed; Palpatine’s played this one beautifully.

The young recruits sprint is halted as they nearly enter the blood soaked bridge; Ken erupts in tears and cradles his eyes on Rayf’s shoulder. The Ossus Native shrugs him off and strides into the scene.

Rayf Ysanna: the last of the brigands have been slain master, Solo’s wookiee has him aboard the falcon, and we just secured Agent Bey there as well.

Luke Skywalker: what happened to bey?

A string of blaster bolts rain from the doorway as a winded Vont bursts into the chamber.

Frustrated Skywalker catches the bolts in his hand and proceeds to pull Vont’s feet out from under him. Causing him to fall face first at Ken’s feet. The tear soaked boy draws his lightsaber.

Dilbun Vont: (coughing) git yur arses on that rusted out freighter! This tubs gonna crash!

Ken: (crying) you bad man!

Empatajayos Brand: (floating) calm yourself boy! And were to assume this is your doing?

Dilbun Vont: not my style brand, kriffin Gungan went nuts. Barely got outta dare before Zann’s freak show busted in here!

      Rayf Ysanna: (pointing saber) you’re just mister nice guy right?

Dilbun Vont: betcher arse; dis sorta stuff bein just gittin heft at me from all directions all da time.

Empatajayos Brand: (floating) ok, what happened to the urgency to get us off this ship?

Luke hauls vont and binks from the bridge on their way to the docking bay; they are joined by Artoo-Deeto.

Dilbun Vont: (running) unless you kriffers wanna be stardust, best webe haulin it!

The prisoners are stowed away aboard the falcon, as Skywalker jumps into the pilot’s seat with Artoo assisting him as co-pilot.

Artoo-Deeto: (beeps and whistles)

     Luke Skywalker: what if were programmed to smash into something while still in                         
     hyperspace artoo?

Artoo-Deeto: (beeps and whistles)

Luke Skywalker: that’s assuming the folly has a mass shadow recognizer that works!

Deep Core-Tython System-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The Folly speeds towards the star as the falcon escapes the vessel impacting with the star. The falcon having blasted its way out of a vessel at light speed is not without its own complication.

All aboard brace for impact as the falcon speeds towards the closest planet in the system.

Dilbun Vont will Return

Mt. Corvast-Sarapin-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont: (narration) there ain’t no coming back, atleast not without loosing a whole lotta ur self in whatever underhanded effort it tags to bring your keester back from death.

Three speeder bikes pursue another across a soot drenched landscape as a massive lava mine erupts causing a down pour of ash. The sudden distraction blinds the swoop rider, in a mere second he wrecks and is surrounded by a motley crew of burnt out spacers and pirates turned bounty hunters. Without pause the prize captive jumps to his feet and attempts to flee, only to be pistol whipped by an obese man.

Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha: get your bloomin act togetha ya lepi!, dis em a karkin run down. Plain an’ simple.

Jaxxon: least amaiza cut and run like I’d hoped she would, none of you be gitten within an inch of her while I still….

The lepi’s boastful claims are silenced by a savage thrashing by way of an blaster rifles butt to the face.

Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha: save it, da captain’s got plenty of questions for you to answer!

The emerald lepi is drug within the confines of a rusted landing craft before it lifts into the atmosphere of the volcanic energy planet.

The vessel speeds to an equally battered Victory II class Star Destroyer and docks.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-orbit of Sarapin-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Barely after settling upon its creaky landing gear, the swoop gang speeds from the craft and out into the confines of the nasty vessel. 

The speeders burst through rubbish filled hall ways, their vibrations causing great avalanches of trash heaps and the collapse of a many make shift camps set within technical alcoves. Dangling by a chain through the mad dash is the captive mercenary Jaxxon whom endures another thrashing along the way to the bridge.

The speeders maintain their break-neck velocity upon  entering the bridge. The two lesser swoop riders peel off into the technician bunkers and park as their chieftain continues towards the viewport, where stands a portly nerf hide bound middle-aged human looking down at the decomposing corpse of the vessels former captain, slain six years earlier above the moon of Gall.

Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha: here’s the bastage cap’in. that secure my boyz and I’s case of reserve?

Dilbun Vont: sure id doz! Go have a ride wit da theelin strum nests in the lower decks as well. Dis here lil lepi iz worth a lot.

Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha: oh thanks boss!

The obese pirate quickly remounts and speeds from the bridge, his cohorts follow. Without pause Vont kicks Jaxxon in the jaw while assuming a squat over his captive.

Jaxxon: wut the kriff is yur interest in me again already? Yur boys ran me down just three weeks ago!

Dilbun Vont: first ovv, I’m gonna deprive yous of the remainder of those creds you made hijackin ships with Niles Ferrier.

As a show of respect for the recently deceased ship thief, Dilbun pours some reserve on the deck.

Jaxxon: we earned every cred Thrawn paid, dats my whole retirement fund!

Dilbun Vont: fur seconds, I’m gonna need you to turn me in….

Star’s End-Mytus VII-Corporate Sector-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Jaxxon leads a shackled Dilbun Vont down a row of energy shielded cells, within the cells reside the dregs of the galaxy. The two are greeted by a corporate sector authority representative.  Before the prisoner can be processed an member of the bounty funds allocation agency must inspect the person in question.

Jaxxon: ok, transfer my funds. I want outta here before a price tag pops up on my head.

CSA Rep: all appears to be in order, splendid. But what funds where you expecting for a prisoner exchange?

Dilbun Vont: he ain’t talkin to you!

Without a seconds notice the shackles drop from vont’s arms and he’s driving a shive into the inspectors throat. Vont grabs Tyber Zann by the shoulder and hauls past Jaxxon whom scurries after the two.

Tyber Zann: wish you’d left me in the cling vont, only one reason you’d risk the csa’s wrath and I want no part in it!

CSA soldiers swarm after the three as they run up the ramp of a landing craft.

It lifts off while taking several bolts. As the vessel reaches space, it automatically blasts into light speed. Aboard Zann turns to Vont raising up his shackled hands. Vont sneers.

Dilbun Vont: partners we may be, but yous bein summoned by the emperor.

Tyber Zann: that’s a death march and you know it, I thought we where pals?

Dilbun Vont: trus me, there’s an angle here.

Jaxxon: I think you two need some kriffin privacy for this heart-wrenchin deal, so can I be’s on my way?

Dilbun Vont: almost forgot you were here, guess you’ll be wantin yur nest egg back.

Jaxxon: don’t be so sore Zann, kriffer held my life savings as chattel to get me in on this lil spring job.

In a blur of motion vont shoves the lepi in an escape pod and jettisons it.

Dilbun Vont: silly lepi, creds are fur me.

Tyber Zann: that’s pretty cruel Vont, even for the likes of Jabba. Escape pod adrift in a hyperspace tunnel? Odds are that kriffer will drift for the rest of his life!

Dilbun Vont: otay, the lepi’s nest egg- double or nutin he comes afta me wit the best bounty hunters creds can buy?

Tyber Zann: yur on bastage.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-Orbit of Byss-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

A small gathering of bandits stand at the viewport of the dilapidated Star Destroyer glimpsing the sheer scope of the Emperor’s Dark Empire-hidden at the very heart of the galaxy.

Gaff: hell the navigational charts to this place are worth more than even one of us are to be getting outta this!

Suddenly Dilbun draws a blaster rifle and aims it at the viewport.

Dilbun Vont: I recall a time when everyone in this group could git away wit murda! Krif knows I should talk knows. Wut I’m sayin is diz: this is the last chance the empire has, eder id rize again now or its be fadin into the dust. Us along wid id! By rebels turned politicians or by rivals. Dis is our last chance to stand tall.

Gaff: and we non-humanoids get to go back to bein looked down upon?

Tyber Zann: takin the good with the bad, like we used to sounds a hellva lot better than runnin from the rebels!

Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha: da bosses are right! Lifes easier for us under the emperor.

Vont lowers his blaster, as a hologram flares to life beside him.

T’iaz: welcome back lekku loper, have you assembled the needed party?

Tyber Zann: were here.

T’iaz: very well, his eminence will receive you at the citadel. Landing instructions transmitting. 

Emperor’s Citadel-Byss-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont,Tyber Zann,Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha, Gaff approach the heavily guarded throne of the Clone Emperor.

T’iaz: may I present his eminence; the true ruler of the galaxy; empero…

Dilbun Vont: cut the malarky, here to offa my services to ya Augie, bein lost without ya, really.

Clone Emperor: do not impose familiarity with my person! A servant does not share common concern with its master.

A bolt of force lightening connects with Dilbun’s chest, hurling him to the ground. The clone sneers out at the remaining attendees.

Clone Emperor: secure our guests, do not deny them the slightest inspections. Traitors are everywhere.

Imperial sentinels seize the remaining bandits and hall them away. Dilbun attempts to regain his footing, only to be once again caught in the grasp of the clone emperor’s powers.

Dilbun Vont: wuts this more of the rewardz for service to yur arse!

Clone Emperor: oh, the ever faithful servant returns to my side. Oh! With what grace do you impose yourself into my cabal. Your identification checks out with my feeble network, but I know nothing of you nor do I intend to reevaluate myself!

Without hesitation the clone engages his light saber and takes a lethal swipe at Dilbun’s torso; the blade collides with the rare gungan cortosis craft vibro-axe gifted to Dilbun by Senator Palpatine eons earlier. At the sight of his disabled light saber, the clone stands in awe.

Dilbun Vont: dats rite augie, I saved you wit dis as my kriffin reward!

Clone Emperor: the naboo swamps, young Maul had failed me…and you could not be sensed in the force. Yes augie was my name!

Dilbun Vont: exactly, yur lil Zabrak couldn’t protect ya and I did!

Clone Emperor: the man; Palpatine died at Endor. The Sith Lord; Darth Sidious survived.

Dilbun Vont: so ya git my bein here now Augie?

Via the force, the clone emperor snatches the gungan vibro-axe from Vont’s grasp. The clone absorbs the events partaken with it via force enhanced Psychometry.

Clone Emperor: where is your son!

Vont is yet again thrust into the air via the clones control over the force.

Dilbun Vont: left that lil prisy bastage wit hiz gimped out motha of da surface of Gall six years ago and vaped the joint from orbit!

Clone Emperor: you knew I required your progeny!  Why then did you consign the child to certain death?

Dilbun Vont: yer kriffin arse wasa ded, wut good wuz tha whelp to ya as you wur blown to star dust?

The clone drops vont to the floor and despairs.

Clone Emperor: your return to my side, maybe short-lived vont, my essence cannot be endured for great lengths of time within a non-force sensitive body.

Dilbun Vont: you where gonna take over my son’s body?

Clone Emperor: yes, yes Dilbun. Your  sons body was to be my vessel. I myself do not have the knowledge of how to manipulate midi-chlorians…

Dilbun Vont: fazanatein, so where’s a dark sider willin to take you in?

Clone Emperor: you presume my adapts are of great strength, they merely serve my needs while in the thrall of the dark side.

Dilbun Vont: huh, huh. So kriffin jeti purge affects yur arse! Kinda funny. Huh, huh.

Clone Emperor: I have no need for an jester vont! You’ve sealed my permanent doom, without that child I cannot endure!

Dilbun Vont: wud bout yur karkin spawn! Eh? Can’t spill yur own blood?

The clone is physically taken aback at the mention of his own forgotten progeny.

Clone Emperor: do not jest Dilbun, do I have a child?

Dilbun Vont: well you sure don’t remember yer karkin past life do you?

Coruscant-19 years before the Battle of Yavin IV

Darth Sidious stands with his hand crackling dark force lightening above the stomach of a restrained woman.

Niobi: you will not have my heart! What you do is against nature! Ahhh!

Darth Sidious: silence!

Suddenly a ball of dark force energy is hurled into the woman. Upon it’s introduction upon her body she is visibly pregnant. However the experiment is a failure as the young woman vomits up the forced impregnation. An mutant infant gurgles in its own fluids as it is telekinetically lifted into the air for the sith lords inspection.

Darth Sidious: alas, my masters secret midi-chlorian skill eludes me. A weakling mutant! Not even powerful in the force!

Niobi: see yourself in your child!

The restrained woman springs from the bolted table and leaps out the window at force propelled speeds. The sith lord cradles the mutant infant in lieu of slaying the unwilling mother. Sidious summons holographic forms of his aides; Sly Moore and Mas Amedda.

Mas Amedda: my lord, an heir!

Darth Sidious: nothing but an inferior mutant! Cast it from my sight…like the others! Summon vont. It is his duty.

Emperor’s Citadel-Byss-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Clone Emperor: so you didn’t kill him, why?

Dilbun Vont: bacuz, waste iz a thief.

Meditation Chamber-The Jedi Explorer-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Luke Skywalker restlessly attempts to center himself before entering into his force guided meditation. His effort is pointless, he is still tainted by the dark side, his common sense of justification lost while bowing before the clone emperor. The floating cybernetic ganathan king Empatajayos Brand bursts into his chamber, uninvited.

Empatajayos Brand: master skywalker, your unease is deafening in the force. You must suppress it or  the others will grow tired of your endured distraction.

Luke Skywalker: distraction? The Jedi knights cannot defeat the emperor with so few!

Empatajayos Brand: we fell as many before, and yet it took only one to defeat vader and his emperor. We are already legion by my count.

Luke Skywalker: Anakin Skywalker saved the galaxy…and his son. I was merely his cause to act. I cannot  defeat the emperor alone, we must expand.

Empatajayos Brand: the Jedi will rise again, but not without our stand against the sith. This is our test luke, with you in the lead. Not a shattered man, you are the leader of this era. You must stand firm, without you we are cast back into the dust, the light will be stomped out forever if you do not accept your…

Luke Skywalker: enough! I’ve already fulfilled my destiny. Ben and Yoda have turned away from me, my fall to the dark side was my undoing. I cannot lead us to victory. I cannot even focus on meditation.

Empatajayos Brand: most unfortunate, but not unheard of, are you vain enough to assume you’re the only Jedi to give into the dark side. I can assure you the road back is treacherous, but it exists for only those hardy enough to traverse it.

Luke Skywalker: then perhaps the holocron can be of assistance in this matter.

Empatajayos Brand: the true tedryn holocron it may be, and even if it is the sith may have tainted it. I do not want you to activate it while we search for your recruits.

Luke Skywalker: whose to say I’m not tainted as well!

Empatajayos Brand: the force!

The young tribesman of Ossus bursts into the chamber.

Rayf Ysanna: were approaching the system luke.

Luke Skywalker: thanks rayf…by the way would you care for a lesson from the holocron. Master brand is going to authenticate it for future use.

Empatajayos Brand: as underhanded as a high council member, and you doubt yourself. Very well, if this is what it takes.

Rayf Ysanna:  I’m lost..whats this all about.

Luke Skywalker: pay it no mind.

Vodo-Sia-Baas: I’ am the gatekeeper of the Tedryn, what knowledge do you seek?

Empatajayos Brand: by the force, I challenge your authenticity, and wish to expose the truth via an lore contest.

Vodo-Sias-Baas: such insolence; you carry much self importance master Brand. Far more since your trails under Yaddle to be certain, let us regale the students.

Empatajayos Brand: of what species was my master Yaddle?

Vodo-Sias-Baas: she was of an unknown tridactyl race, most commonly thought to be of relative to the Whills; the shamans whom are thought to reside on Tython; the Jedi planet of origin.

Empatajayos Brand: your cross-branching logic is in place, this must be the doing of Sidious!

Luke Skywalker: do you believe palpatine would have sought out the Whill shaman?

Empatajayos Brand: worse.

Vodo-Sias-Baas: little good they’d have been, much like the Rakata or the Celestials they’ve passed…

Luke Skywalker: is it trustworthy?

Empatajayos Brand: too fourth coming it is. We’ll come back to this after we’ve secured your recruit.

Emperor’s Citadel-Byss-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont,Gaff, Gir-Kybo-Ren Cha and Tyber Zann kneel before the Clone Emperor.

Clone Emperor: and that is how it will be!

Tyber Zann: the guy that took down the first Death Star and three other Jedi! that’s asking way too…

Clone Emperor: don’t worry your cowardly Hyde zann, your task plays to your skill set. If your survival is possible you may go about your corrupt profession.

Dilbun Vont: well idz da be a walk in da park fur mesa huh? Augie.

Clone Emperor: in order to assure your success , I’ll be supplying some special..comrades.

Three warriors approach the dais, a heavily armored Gamorrean, a muscle bound Tusken Raider and a woman with the arm of a Juggernaut war droid. The trio are escorted by a group of Dark Troopers.

T’iaz: may I present the Masters of Teräs Käsi.

Dilbun Vont: gotta be ovv yur kriffin roqqa augie! These bastages be total savages!

Clone Emperor: augie is dead, Darth Sidious is all that remains, we’ve been through this already.

Hoar: (Tusken battle cry)

T’iaz: (igniting light saber) restrain yourselves in the prescience of his galactic eminence.

Tyber Zann: if its muscle we need, why not get a hold of my crew? Utai Fenn and Silri are the best back up in the galaxy!

Clone Emperor: I will not entrust this mission to an barely sentient thug or a treacherous Dathomirian Witch!

Gaff: barely sentient?

Clone Emperor: all non-humanoids lucky enough to be in my service will remember their place! I will not tolerate the guttural sounds that pass for language leveled at me from a non-existent elevation!

Dilbun Vont: give the kriffa a break their augie, we’res to be puttin our karkin arses on the line to…

Clone Emperor: silence Vont! Your protectors do not require the facts!

Arden Lyn: aw, does the mighty reborn emperor have a soft spot? Do I detect a weakness to exploit.

Clone Emperor: all is never what it appears to be, my dear. Never assume yourself to be a threat to my person, you breath simply because I do not trust their martial abilities when stacked against these odds.

Arden Lyn: my place in this scheme is purely personal, all assumptions aside.

Clone Emperor: very well. This mission will be lead by T’iaz and the archetype of my new storm trooper class. May I present…Hayt.

A scantly clad female in sparse plastoid armor approaches the throne, Dilbun steps closer to her upon her entrance.

Dilbun Vont: (attempting a spank) well I’ll be suga…

The barely attired trooper disables vont in three movements, leaving the elder man on the floor.

Clone Emperor: as you understand Dilbun, almost every species in the galaxy is easily intoxicated, distracted and best of all subdued by the mere sight of an human female. 

Hayt:  subjugation can be pleasurable, do you not agree commander Vont?

Dilbun Vont: tage an army of strums over dweebie stormies anytime.

Clone Emperor: an entire garrison of women will be both welcomed and underestimated, at any cost we will have peace.

The entire group is lead from the throne room by Hayt as the Sith Lord sinks further into his throne.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) wut a peaceful galaxy we’d huff bein stuck with!

The Jedi Explorer- approaching Dagobah-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Kam Solusar: what a glorious magnet of the living force, no wonder your master hid here so easily.

Luke Skywalker: yes, but don’t let the currents of life dull your senses. The marsh planet is a perfect example of all aspects of the living force.

Artoo-Deeto: (beeps and whistles)

Luke Skywalker: and watch your step.

The interior flares an proximity warning, as the mammoth form of the Millennium Falcon soars above the simple Jedi Explorer, all aboard are rattled from the effectiveness of Solo’s surprise arrival.

Han Solo: (via intercom) thought you Jedi had sight beyond sight? Huh

Chewbacca: (in Shyriiwook) told you they’d be caught unawares, pay up ya scoundral!

Luke Skywalker: thanks han, we need the humility.

Rayf Ysaana: yes, master.

Han Solo: (via intercom) don’t go turnin into a zealot there kid!

Empatajayos Brand: captain solo is right, young Ysanna. Respect for your elder is one thing, blind allegiance is folly indeed.

Kam Solusar: now you’re certain you weren’t followed here?

Chewbacca: (via intercom) (wookiee growls and whines)

Han Solo: (via intercom) take it easy, there ain’t no kriffin homing beacon on this baby! Chill your followers out luke. Last thing we need is Jedi that are nervous in the service!

Luke Skywalker: we’re fine han, now that we’re here prepare for com-silence.

Han Solo: (via intercom) whatever.

The ships descend into the atmospehere of Dagobah, as the falcon goes through the re-entry phase of the decsent, a space suited form affixed to the hull can be seen.

Entrance to the Dark Cave-Dagobah-10 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The Jedi Explorer lands adjacent to the cave and the already landed Falcon. Han,Chewie and Bey stand on the ramp with blasters drawn.

Han Solo: so hows everything shaping up their intel wise?

Bey: all our so called allies have either lied down their arms, joined the Dark Empire or worst of all gone silent.

Chewbacca: (in wookiee) the wookiees will fight for the republic, once the council convenes!

Han Solo: ya, haven’t they been trying to descide if their gonna give aid to us since before Thrawn’s surge? Good thing were not holdin our breath!

Bey: the greater concern is the sudden influx of Bothan units into our command structure, Fey’las eying the big job, no doubt bout it.

Han Solo: that guy’s slime, lucky us Mon Mothma welcomed Garm Bel Iblis back into the fold.

Bey: Iblis won’t take a seat long enough to sell an agenda, he’s no politican.

Empatajayos Brand: than perhaps bothan backstabbing will rule the aftermath of this diaster.

Luke Skywalker: I’m fairly certain Leia will be the barrier of Mothma’s torch han, leaving Jacen and Jaina in the tutledge of their uncle.

Han Solo: back off kid! My twins ain’t messin with all this force stuff till they can atleast fly an airspeeder!

Empatajayos Brand: but Jedi of the old republic where…

Han Solo: snacthed from their parents while infants! Not my kids luke!

Luke Skywalker: fine, now will you all wait here.

Rayf Ysanna: are you sure master? I could be of..

Kam Solusar: ease off kid, he needs to be the one to rally this one.

Luke desends into the dark cave while Artoo quivers an audible pang of fear. Upon luke’s decent he is greeted by a thick glowing vapor, a gust of frigidness engulfs him. Luke casts out a vaneer of force energy, shielding him from the passive illusions of the cave, but not from the all encompassing dark presence.

Luke engages his light saber as the vapor looses its luminosity. A twisted cackle sounds from the pervasive shadows and settles into a featureless set of flaming eyes and a gaping maw of broken teeth.

Darth Sidious: mine!

The ghostly vision dissipates as luke continues his journey to the bottom. From all around luke crackles dark side lightening, the miashma of dark power evaporates as he passes it.

Upon entering the final passage, luke is bombarded by an apparitional force vision; a tall black haired pony tailed figure burns in a dark spectral form over his unconscious body as a young man turns away from luke’s body and boards a gleaming cylindrical vessel. It lifts off into the skies of the fourth moon of Yavin Four.

The dire situation is washed away by the blinding radiance of several thousand lightsabers, the entire spectrum collides in a solid white that collapses upon a brown haired teenage human boy meditating while doing an handstand in the very center of the stalgatite ridden cave.

Ken: gee goly, master skywalker! Boy am I glad to see you.

Luke Skywalker: young ken, you’ve grown quite a bit, since our last meeting. Have you come to understand my meaning for insisting you study within this cave?

Ken: (standing) of course, but it only troubles me further master! This dark cave reflects nothing of myself. I’ve been here as you suggested for five years, and have found no trace of my grand fathers dark nature within myself.

Luke Skywalker: breath boy, I wish I shared your certain fate, but I understand your troubled conclusion, and regrettably must ask too much of you.

The boy in white stands stoically before his black clad master in prepartion for a mission.

Luke Skywalker: your wretched grand father has returned from the nether realm of the force and cast a terrible darkness upon the galaxy, and regrettably I fell to his side in an failed attempt to vanquish him.

Ken: (engaging lightsaber)  I will not serve him!

The reckless boy force hurls Skywalker through the cave wall, luke is sent flying towards a dammed swamp ledge. Upon regaining his footing, the dam ruptures and a wave of putrid mud water gushes down the hillside.

The young Jedi initiate lands atop an falling tree that plummets towards Skywalker whom settles the tree at the edge of the swamp fall.

Luke Skywalker: stretch out with your feelings ken, I mean to vanquish the emperor not serve him!

Ken: than why do you reek of the dark side!

The young boy takes a swipe at Skywalker with his light saber; whom engages his own blade as the boys connects with it. They stand facing one another with locked blades, as the tree begins to crack against the mighty currents.

Luke Skywalker: this darkness will pass, but only if the Jedi rise to quell its ascension! And only united will we succed!

Ken: I was taught every detail of our history in the lost city of the Jedi, we will fail. Palpatine was able to topple the guardians of peace and justice in a single rotation, it will be just the same for us!

Luke Skywalker: my sister and I have already defeated one of his clone bodies. With you at my side, we the decendents of darkness will triumph.

Ken: perhaps, we can.

Luke Skywalker: no, we will.

The two Jedi disengage their weapons and spring from the log, they quickly reappear above the dark cave.

Han Solo: well I’ll be..

Chewbacca: (quickly grabs and huggs the boy)

Ken: nice seein you again chewie.

Luke Skywalker: may I present our comrades; Rayf Ysanna of Ossus, Kam Solusar of Nespis VIII and Empatajayos Brand, King of Ganath as well as an Jedi of the Old Republic.

Ken: Astral!

Han Solo: oh yea, thrilling stuff. How bout we ditch that lil tike Jedi craft here and everybody pile aboard the falcon for the rest of this party?

Kam Solusar: I don’t know han…

Ken: sure thing captain solo, come on gang!

The young boy bolts up the ramp of the falcon as followed by the mighty Chewbacca,Artoo-Detoo leaving the elder men in their wake.

Han Solo: (walking after him) see the kid knows best.

Bey: (following) falcon’s anti-tracking package is even better than most New Republic espionage craft, take him up on his offer before he charges you for the lift.

The falcon blasts off into the atmosphere of the Swamp world shortly after the Jedi are aboard, as the vessel reaches space the space suit clad figure affixed to the hull sqiurms about attempting a slip stream com-burst.

Dilbun Vont: (within space suit) merchaindize iz aboard, navicomputer jump iz included with dis burst, be ready ta pounce on dis bastage upon reversion from hyperspace. Loper out.


Imperial Enclave-Gall-4 years after the battle of Yavin IV

A young child carefully enters a darkened room to find a solitary figure slumped over the edge of a bunk bed regarding a unique vibro-axe of gungan design. The older man takes notice of the child.

Dilbun Vont: why ain’t you sleepin runt.

Cas-Lo Vont: I was…going to play with my…

Dilbun Vont: wit ur kriffin dollies huh? Shouldn’t you be messin wit lil strums yet?

Cas-Lo Vont: father, I’m only nine.

Dilbun Vont: (standing up from the bunk with the axe) nuthin but excuses outta you ain’t dare?

Dilbun abruptly exit’s the room in a hurry almost knocking his nine year old son to the floor with his motion.

The child regards the back of his father with glassed over eyes. The elder Vont exit’s the abode without even looking back. The young child settles on a divan and activates the holofeed.

Pundit: in a shocking turn of events there is wide spread revolt on Imperial Center following the morbid events over the Sanctuary moon of Endor. Word has it that Grand Vizor Sate Pestage promises the citizens of the Empire that he will not rest until the Rebel Alliance is utterly crushed for the heinous acts of this past night. 

Suddenly the holofeed is interrupted and the entire abode is rattled to its foundation as blasts strike the enclave. Explosions rock the entire country side as blaster fire is rained down from orbit.

The entire enclave is blasted to rubble. Within the Vont Apartment, young Cas-Lo rushes to the aid of his mother. He finds the turncoat padawan Cittro buried under a support beam.  Amidst the flaming wreckage young Vont attempts to physically lift the bulk head to no avail.

Cittro: (under rubble) those blasted rebel scum!

Cas-Lo Vont: mother, there was no air raid signal, it cannot be the rebels…

Cittro: (under rubble) who told you the procedures?…then it could only be…where’s your father!

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-orbit of Gall-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV 

The insectoid Gaff storms onto the bridge of the star destroyer to find Commander Vont standing at the main observation area with a smoking blaster in his left hand.

Gaff slows his heightened pace at the sight of the captains dead body at vont’s feet.

Gaff: so the captain started the bombardment before they could be evacuated?

Dilbun Vont: naw, you gots it all backwards gaff, that kriff head wasn’t gonna start it till all those parasites had gotten aboard the ships. Don’t need anymore mouths to feed in this fleet.

Gaff: but she’s down there too…so’s lil cas-lo…

Dilbun Vont: with ol’ augie blasted to stardust I don’t need em, either of em. Bein slowin me down far too long already as it is. Get the fleet to hyperspace, the kriffin rebels might be coming this way after they get done moppin up at endor.

Gaff: yes, commander.

The entire Gall defensive fleet of Six Star destroyers blasts into hyperspace.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) oh, so much fur da loving family crap….

Imperial Enclave-Gall-4 years after the battle of Yavin IV

The rubble ridden room begins to cave in on the surviving inhabitants, as the ceiling comes crashing down Cittro grits her teeth and accepts the unpleasant death.

Young Cas-Lo instinctively raises his arms in defiance of the death his father called down upon him. Via the power of the force the wall is not only stopped from crushing the two, it is sent collapsing in the other direction. With sudden glee the child turns round to regard his mother.

Cittro: (coughing blood) who you..think you’re saving you little bastage!

Cas-Lo Vont: I used it to save you. What can be so wrong about using it for that?

Cittro: (dying) just tryin to get me to keep playin mother….

The turncoat padawan succumbs to her wounds, leaving the nine year old to fend for himself amidst a bombed out untamed world. The child sets out into the wilderness with only the force as his ally.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-Hyperspace-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV 

Gaff strides into the late captains lounge to find Dilbun studying a holographic star chart amidst a gathering of smashed valuables and broken furniture.

Dilbun Vont: not a kriffin drip of reserve on dis tub.

Gaff: I have some membrosia in my cabin if that’d be of any help?

Dilbun Vont: neva touched the stuff.

Gaff: so what is our heading, mission, scheme?

Dilbun Vont: if ya hadn’t noticed there Gaff, I’m whut you’d call something of a softie when it came to ol’ augie. He wuz the only person I neva double crossed, truth.

Gaff: but hive mates and hatchlings are of no concern to you?

Dilbun Vont: (slamming vibro-axe on the desk) stay on subject! Although the rebels carried out the deed that done in ol augie I personally hold the bothan spies accountable for his bein dead.

Gaff: Koth Melan was slain by a Barabel hit squad a month ago Dilbun. Who you gonna kill now?

Dilbun Vont: yea, yea. I know dat. He wasn’t the only bothan wit hiz fur in that mess. Bein scanning the imperial network, those kriffers neva stopped working the original slice trail where the plans where obtained.

Gaff: I follow so far.

Dilbun Vont: good, the bothan spynet tried to bribe a highly placed imperial officer into placing a slicer droid into the coruscant computer network, dat failed but they obtained the plans anyway.

Gaff: so we’re going to imperial center?

Dilbun Vont: oh no, we go there this whole fleet gets absconded and redistributed into the war effort. Dis is my kriffin fleet gaff. They ain’t gittin it back.

Gaff: so were still goin after bothan spies?

Dilbun Vont: you betcher arse we are, gonna toast those furbags myself!

Rooftop-Aquilae-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV 

A platoon of imperial storm troopers march down a overly crowded street carrying the solitary banner of the Empire. On the rooftop of a building overlooking the scene a pair of Bothan spies sympathetic to the rebel cause keep a proton canon locked on a central power line right above the intended direction of the imperial demonstration.

Tani Ab’yla: you sure we should still be carrying out this strike?

Utric Sandov: last time I checked, no imps aren’t throwing down their blasters  in the name of peace. This neat little civil war just turned into a sectarian mess tani. Be lucky if the new republic or alliance of free planets or whatever catchy little tagline they settle on; is set up within a thousand years.

Tani Ab’yla: so were gonna murder that whole street of people down there for a cause that by your account is just hopeless, correct me if I’m wrong.

Utric Sandov: we take out that batch of non-humanoid hating imperial zealots and we may not hafta..

Tani Ab’yla: face it, you cannot condone this. it’s a act of murder plain and simple! Nor is a cry of ar’krai being let out towards all imperials is there?

Utric Sandov: we both know if endor had been a defeat neither of us would be up here with doubts it’d be pop goes the imp.

Tani Ab’yla: see you have doubts too!

Utric Sandov: (disengaging canon) no, you just drive a hard bargain. I’m sold. So now where are we letting off this payload? Got any legit, morally acceptable targets for me?

Tani Ab’yla: (slicing computer socket) ok legit targets; storm trooper barracks, morally acceptable; negative they let families bunk together on this Podunk rock.

Utric Sandov: (compressing rocket launcher) what about that karkin airfield?

Tani Ab’yla: watch your language!  We’d cut off their supplies. But not all the livestock in these waters are inedible to humans. We could also sever their link with the rest of the imperial network.

Utric Sandov: fine, but what are we gonna do about this kriffin..excuse me lovely proton missile of my mine and don’t say just fire into the sea.

Tani Ab’yla: there’s a comm-tower in the northern hemisphere, we blow it and they can’t build another without supplies they can’t call out for since were cutting them off for the duration of hostilities.

Utric Sandov: fine. Troops learn to fish, and rough it out for the next twenty years.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-Hyperspace-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV 

an insectoid rushes down a corridor to a storm trooper guarded door which hisses open upon his approach, Commander Vont exit’s the room with a blood-soaked gungan vibro-axe. Gaff follows the commander down the corridor he just came down.

Gaff: what happened to the fleet captains dinner?

Dilbun Vont: lets just say; dare won’t be any contention for the title of fleet commander, now will dare?

Gaff: but what of mutiny? The sub-commanders will drop out of light speed and defect from your command.

Dilbun Vont: kriffin fleet is slave rigged to da ravager, so wuts our status…what title you want gaff?

Gaff: I work best from the sidelines, commander. Were en route to the Aquilae system, but there appears to be a planet wide infection warning faintly broadcasting.

Dilbun Vont: that sounds like a slicer fur sure. Get some bright guy on a formation or what have yea, and keep our shields up. And keep our tractor beams at the ready. These furbags are bout to bounce.

The two briskly march onto the bridge of the vessel, only to be greeted by a chorus of status updates.

Imperial Technician: before the quarantine went up; warrants and bounty hunter assistance summons where issued for Jaxxon and Amaiza Foxtrain. There was even mention of an unauthorized landing of one YT-2400 and a WUD-500 class vessel in the northern hemisphere.

Dilbun Vont: could be the kriffin outrider, and perhaps even the rabbit’s foot.

Gaff: I highly doubt your bothan spies could afford transport from the likes of either of those parties.

Dilbun Vont: yea and nobody took solo but nuthin for a kriffin nerf herdin smuggla now did they? Get up a couple wings of ties. 

Gaff: perhaps the launch order should be rescinded until we come out of light speed?

Dilbun Vont: (preparing backhand) I’m in charge of dis…yeah but git your arses ready! All ships git your ties ready to dismount when we reach Aquilae. it’s a kriffin order!

Vont quickly leaves the bridge in a hurry, Gaff looks back at the commander while retracting his deadly stinger.

Communications Tower-Aquilae-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV 

A pair of vessels make their landings atop a large landing pad in the midst of a vast ocean teaming with large predator creatures clashing with one another. The shielded structure Is continually challenged by a group of such titans. The crew of The Outider consisting of bothan spies and their pilot Dash Rendar frantically rush to greet their temporary allies; the crew of Rabbit’s Foot .

Jaxxon: we should really just scratch dis karkin plan and dust dis soggy hell hole!

Dash Rendar: please tell me you didn’t get fingered for anything you shouldn’t have been doin on this trip?

Amaiza Foxtrain: I didn’t get the death mark on six systems for jaywalking there flyboy.

Tani Ab’yla: this was an Alliance funded mission outlaw! There was to be no unwarranted theft of property!

Rianna Sarin: unless of course the proceeds where donated to the rebel alliance?

Jaxxon: better check the reception on that lekku there yum yum, ain’t gonna happen. Our loot will make up for the peanuts you rebels pay to ride the rabbit’s foot.

Rianna Sarin: and how much does Zeeo get for all the repair work he’s bein doin to keep your tub in the sky?

Utric Sandov: ok stow it all! Where you being chased over here or not I smell burnt hull?

Amaiza Foxtrain: knew we couldn’t fool a bothan spy, might have been a few ticked off imps gunnin for us down in the south isles.

Jaxxon: oh and that bookie we cleaned out in the eastern block..shoulda bein there it was priceless.

Dash Rendar: I’m sure it was, well I’m leaving in as long as it takes to get the outrider primed. Anybody goin with her had better be aboard by then.

Tani Ab’yla: we’ll be there, come on Sarin.

Rianna Sarin: here we go zeeo.

The hovering droid accompanies its master gleefully as Rendar goes back up his ramp.

Utric Sandov: alright you two tossers,  fork over the creds.

Amaiza Foxtrain: you think were actually donating our haul!

Jaxxon: you chubba rebels just offed the emperor, what the kriff you need with outlaws plunder anyhow?
Ain’t it all ticker tape parades for solo and the other guerilla heroes.

Utric Sandov: that holovid of the uprising on imperial center is real heart warming ain’t it?  So’s a kriffin blaster bolt in your gut. The imps ain’t licked yet, so if you please the alliance would greatly appreciate the funds to make the empire truly; history.

Amaiza Foxtrain: (tossing coins to the ground) whose to say your little alliance can even manage this galaxy? Think its gonna be a lot harder than blastin a bolt through a two meter gap. Huh?

Utric Sandov: (collecting coins) with minds such as these to save, why do we continue?

Amaiza Foxtrain: oh and with such brigands to serve.

Jaxxon: look there sugar; yesterdays freedom fightin Insurgent, tomorrows money grubbin Bureaucrat. Ain’t it a sight!

The outlaws walk back towards their vessel as the bothan continues to collect their imperial currency from the floor of the platform.

 Meanwhile Tani Ab’yla, Rianna Sarin and Zeeo make their way into the depths of the ocean world via a force field shielded lift with a panoramic via of the life rich sea.

Rianna Sarin: just to think one hiccup in the power relay and we get crushed to death by the depth before the predators can even make a snack outta us.

Z-58-0: in that case why didn’t you just send me in your places? I can survive the depths of space.

Tani Ab’yla: a sentient slicer has something you just can’t program. No offense Zeeo.

Rianna Sarin: you’d be amazed at the amount he can achieve with that processor.

Z-58-0: whats that supposed to mean?

Tani Ab’yla: oh its just that arakyd industries isn’t known for producing…

Rianna Sarin: don’t mind the bothan, zeeo. She’ll learn.

The lift comes to a stop and opens onto a deserted observation deck, the droid flies to its task as tani and rianna set about their own duties. Topside; Dash Rendar rapidly exit’s the ramp of his craft.

Dash Rendar: we got six victory II class star destroyers entering orbit!

Utric Sandov: (passing coins) how much for you to delay taking off just a bit longer?

Dash Rendar: (accessing the loot) umm, what domination are they? Thousands huh? a handful for ten more minutes.

Jaxxon: (sticking blaster in sandov’s back) I’ll have whatever he leaves behind for added fire power, show me six imperial classes and I’ll start carbon flushin myself.

Utric Sandov: go ahead ya kriffin varmint. Take it all, only feed a spy net for three weeks in the bush.

Amaiza Foxtrain: (pocketing loot in a boot) not like it takes any skill to stare at a target for that long eh?

Utric Sandov: we let two smugglers into the rebellion and now all the dregs mean to bled our funds.

Jaxxon: cry me a river.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-orbit of Aquilae-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

From the viewing port of the Ravager, Commander Vont watches an entire bombing run of Tie Fighters speed to the surface of the ocean world. 

Gaff: all wings are away, is all as you wish it to be..fleet commander?

Dilbun Vont: betta be.

Suddenly a storm trooper charges toward the viewing station firing at vont; whom effortlessly draws his own blaster pistol and lets off a string of bolts at the ensuing mutineers.

Without hesitation the insectoid Gaff draws his own blaster and enters the fray on vont’s behalf. The fire fight is short but not without consequences.

Dilbun Vont: tell me we gots nuff shock collars aboard this tub to rig us a new bridge crew!

Gaff: I always travel with  at least a platoons worth in my shuttle.

Dilbun Vont: have em brought up with another crew and a case of detonite. Dis happens again heads are poppin.

Gaff: agreed.

Communications Tower-Aquilae-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV 

The floating platform is attacked from above by a swarm of tie fighters, the vicious sea life plucks unlucky pilots from the skies at random as blaster fire reigns down.

Dash Rendar: (hiding under vessel) ain’t getting paid enough for this!

Utric Sandov: (firing blasters) can’t hit a target rendar?

Jaxxon: (firing blasters) c’mon killing imps is fun!

Utric Sandov: (firing blasters) just gotta hit that cockpit and…

A well aimed shot ends in a fighter careening out of control and crashing into the platform nearly sinking it. As within the returning lift, vibrations from above are felt. The view is that of complete and total havoc in the sea.

Tani Ab’yla: can’t be good.

Rianna Sarin: here’s hoping the power holds.

Z-58-0:  we are well above the decompression limit of sentient beings.

Tani Ab’yla: yeah well not above the food chain wire brain.

Without warning the entire lift looses power and is flooded by the oceans around it, rianna latches onto zeeo and motions for Tani to do the same.

Upon making her connection the droid races to the surface and avoids the jaws of every predator on the way.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-orbit of Aquilae-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

A platoon of stormtroopers attach detonite rigged shock collars around the necks of all the replacement bridge technicians.

Dilbun Vont: aight kriff heads, anybody try and pull another mutiny on me is gonna end up a job for the cleanin droids get it?

The entire technician staff agrees in unison.

Dilbun Vont: guud, now it would appear our tie wing is provin a bit useless down there wouldn’t you say gaff?

Gaff: probably too much biscuit baron.

Dilbun Vont: agreed, tractor beam control! I want that entire comm-station brought up into our docking bay!

Imperial Technician: but sir, we cannot divert that much power to..

The technicians head is exploded by a trigger in vonts hand.

Dilbun Vont: another opinion, can id be done!

The remaining technician staff agrees in unison.

Communications Tower-Aquilae-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV 

The tie fighter swarm begins to loose numerical superiority and give way to the raging sea monstrosities as the energy field protecting the landing pad shimmers out of existence. Causing the lesser sea monsters to slither on deck towards the outnumbered band of freedom fighters.

Jaxxon: (firing blasters) outta power packs!

Dash Rendar: (pulling blaster) good thing I didn’t waste mine.

With one shot the smuggler braggart fells an advancing sea beast as it falls dead Zeeo emerges from the depths with Rianna and Tani still attached.

The droid settles near the two vessels and deposit’s the sentient beings on the deck.

Before the gathered party can check the status of their comrades a great silhouette is cast upon the platform, both Rianna and Tani regain normal breathing habits at the sight of a Victory II Class Star Destroyer descending upon the ocean planet belly first.

Two mixed parties of three members each split up and run up the ships ramps. As the vessels begin to fire their repulsor engines, the entire comm-tower is caught in the pull of a tractor beam; immediately the bulky station is brought into the skies shedding mammoth predators as it makes its ascent.

The beam also catches a mighty submerged beast of the abyss.

Cockpit-Outrider-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Tani Ab’yla: whats the problem get us outta here!

Dash Rendar: let me know when I start givin you tips on  how to slice. Jaxx ol buddy you ready when I am?

Rianna Sarin: get this bucket moving flyboy.

Cockpit-Rabbit’s Foot-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Amaiza Foxtrain: everything’s almost primed!

Jaxxon: (punching accelerator) don’t listen to the broad, follow me!

Both vessels blast off of the platform and fire their canons at the underside of the star destroyer as it continues diverting all of its power to the tractor beam. Massive explosions rock the destroyer as it pulls an entire comm-tower into itself; the tower explodes upon impact.

Both vessels escape into the upper atmosphere as the tractor beam pulls a mighty sea beast onto its hull, all flaming portions of the vessel are extinguished by the accompanying wave of fluids.  The mighty beast wraps its many tentacles around the entire hull of the star destroyer as it lifts into the air. The remainder of the tie fighter swarm comes to the mother ships defense, but is of no use.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-Aquilae-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The bridge of the Ravager is in complete panic as the mighty sea creature attempts to grapple its foe to shreds, technicians are burnt by exploding consoles and overloaded circuitry smokes.

Dilbun Vont: kill the kriffin tractor beam! Git us back into orbit! Goto hyper speed if we got it…

Gaff: no it’ll survive the jump, we need to burn it off with the atmosphere!

Imperial Technician: we have a plethora of hull breaches, we run the risk of burning up and total decompression even if we reach space!

Dilbun Vont: (holding remote) power rerouted? Punch it!

The star destroyer rockets towards space at full repulsor speed as the beast continues to cling tightly to the hull. Klaxons scream themselves out of function as the vessel reaches space with a mighty flaming carcass still attached to the hull.

The fire dies as the vessel leaves the upper atmosphere of Aquilae, and the mammoth carcass crystallizes.

Dilbun Vont: somebody tell me one of the five otha ships in this kriffin fleet got those two!

Imperial communications officer: sir, it would appear the other portions of our fleet where all attempting to flee the system. But ran into the fact of there being slave rigged to our command console.

Gaff: we might need a whole silo of shock collars.

Dilbun Vont: we got any kriffin trackin sigs on the ships where after?

Imperial Technician: half of the ship is without power, venting oxygen or aflame! We where lucky to make it up the gravity well in one piece let alon…

Vont shots the tech in the face with his blaster.

Dilbun Vont: keep in mind, shock collars just became a commodity aboard this fleet and I’m not at risk of running outta spare bolts. Now track the kriffin ships!

Cockpit-Rabbit’s Foot-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Utric Sandov: why aren’t we in hyperspace!

Amaiza Foxtrain: because the professors managed to fry both of their hyper drives by gunnin it outta that tractor beam on full repulsors.

Jaxxon: hey atleast we aren’t down on that sponge of a planet no more.

Utric Sandov: if only we had atleast one slicer with us.

Jaxxon: you missin your slicer for five minutes and you wanna cry?

Amazia Foxtrain: one of em, could hook us up on a secure channel to da other ship. Heck even listen in on the imp…

The console of the rabbit’s foot flares to life with the voice of Dash Rendar.

Amaiza Foxtrain:  like that.

Dash Rendar: (via comlink) this is rendar on a secure channel, come in rabbits foot.

Jaxxon: burned out hyper drive too?

Dash Rendar: (via comlink) you bet.

Jaxxon: great, you stowed on one of the destroyers also?

Cockpit-Outrider-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Dash Rendar: ya the one on the left. Comm-chatter suggests all six are slaved to the one that tried to capture the whole ocean floor down there.

Jaxxon: (via comlink) so that’s how we got in unnoticed.

Tani Ab’yla: a little holovid scrubbing and they’ll never know that we where here.

Utric Sandov: (via comlink) great work tani, how bout the imperial network any mentions of..

Dash Rendar:  oh yeah they got our ships tagged, and are specifically after you bothans.

Jaxxon: (via comlink) ok. get the kriff outta my ship!

Rianna Sarin: the dear old commander has us all lumped together after that little exercise in what not to do with a tractor beam.

Amaiza Foxtrain: (via comlink) whole kriffin galaxies against us.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-orbit of Aquilae-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV 

Within the late captains lounge, Commander Vont throws a veritable tantrum and smashes a chair against the desk. The insectoid Gaff stands at attention awaiting an end to the chaos. Suddenly a hologram flares to life within the lounge. Vont is caught off guard and fires off a round at it.

Sate Pestage: (via hologram) of course the absence of a fleet guarding what was once the gall conclave is your fault vont.

Dilbun Vont: dats commander vont yea seat warmer.

Sate Pestage: (via hologram) nevertheless, if you intend to keep that fleet you’ve absconded from more capable hands then I believe you are more than fit to carry out a task for the empire. Are you not?

Dilbun Vont: I’m listenin.

Sate Pestage: (via hologram) as the former commander of the garrison on Gall; all material passed through said port was under your express jurisdiction? Yes.

Dilbun Vont: (smashing rubble) reading manifests can git real dull.

Sate Pestage: (via hologram) then you are well aware that the computer core of the recently demolished death star battle station went through gall a little over three standard rotations ago.  During said layover a certain droid downloaded itself into the computer core. Before the rebels managed to ignite the stations main reactor, this droid consciousness was on the brink of seizing complete control of the death star.

Gaff: very elaborate grand vizor,  smacks of Isard’s intervention in the wording. Maybe even the set up.

Sate Pestage: (via hologram) I can assure you that a droid called IG-88A managed to carry out this act and is currently reaching consciousness once more within a similar computer core.

Dilbun Vont: another death star? What a two fur the price ovv one deal?

Sate Pestage: (via hologram) in a matter of speaking yes. Now the empire needs you to make contact with a past relation of yours in what will hopefully be the successful destruction of said battle station.

Dilbun Vont: droid revolution might be just what ol kligson always wanted Sate, might be best to just send your kriffin fleet after dis ding.

Sate Pestage: (via hologram) the station is located on the outskirts of the Annaj system in the Moddell sector. We believe the imperial network is greatly compromised at this time vont, a redeployment of that size could alert the rebels; Destroy the station and perhaps your rag tag fleet will be of no concern to the war effort. Do we have an accord?

Dilbun Vont: sure, just no more favors afta dis otay?

Sate Pestage: (via hologram) good luck. 

The already temperamental commander blasts the holoreceiving pad on the late captains desk to pieces. And begins a brisk jaunt from the lounge.

Gaff: (rushing to keep up) may I assume you wish all holo-receivers aboard the fleet dismantled and locked down?

Dilbun Vont: you bet, we don’t need anybody leakin our location. We gotsa to get a lead on the current location of kligson’s moon or karkin droid world whateva he’s callin his rusted out platform deeze daze.

Gaff: what about your bothan spies, are we to just give up on them?

Dilbun Vont: once we gots that kriffin station, I’m gonna toast the whole fur bag system. Not concerned bout those two anymore.

Gaff: you believe Kligson can rid the station of the Ig’s prescience?

Dilbun Vont: he’s the maestro of slicing computers there gaff, were bout to be become galactic warlords. You feel it.

Gaff: I have a bad feeling bout this.

Cockpit-Outrider-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Tani Ab’yla: everybody on the foot copy that?

Jaxxon: (via comlink) yea, thinking this should cost the alliance a pretty penny if we can limp our way to them in time to use it.

Dash Rendar: we ain’t sellin this out there lepi! We six have gotta deal with this one. skywalker would expect that or his kriffin force would make him think that.

Amaiza Foxtrain: (via comlink) this isn’t our fight rendar, neither is it yours. Were already being under paid for the poodoo we’ve bein through as it is.

Rianna Saren: you think a nutcase like vont should have his hands on a death star battle station! This ones for the good of all living beings you fluzie. No price tag on that.

Cockpit-Rabbit’s Foot-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Amaiza Foxtrain: hope you enjoy what time you have left saren.

Utric Sandov: enough bickering, I’m the closest thing to a senior officer we got here, and I’m committing this entire six man..person unit to whatever subterfuge that leads to the destruction of that station. Now radio silence, while we affect repairs to these vessels. Slicers keep your ears stuck to the comm-stations. We need to know everything.

Jaxxon: better be a karkin planet in it for us after this sandov.

Rianna Saren: (via comlink) sure thing Sandov. I got zeeo on it.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-orbit of Droid World-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Six victory II class star destroyers encircle the mammoth station. All six are caught in droid worlds tractor beams. Aboard the Ravager XIII; Commander Vont stands with Gaff awaiting an answer to his request to interact with Kligson.

Dilbun Vont: c’mon yea kriffin tin lovin bastage, just answer your summons.

Gaff: perhaps he despises being called upon when only needed to perform a task.

Dilbun Vont: jus the nature of things there gaff.

Without warning a holographic representation of a fully cybernetic Kligson appears on the bridge of the Ravager XIII.

Kligson: (via hologram) turn back, intruder, or I’ll blast you out of space! This is kligson. And I don’t want any dealings with you human life forms. I’m a cyborg-half machine, half man. I surround myself with nothing but robots.

Gaff: (turning to vont) I’m insulted.

Dilbun Vont: calm down, pretty sure even ur stinger couldn’t penetrate that chrome dome. Its vont, never hit coco town did we? After that whole mt. tantiss affair eh? Accept this file transfer and speak of only actions, git me?

Kligson: (via hologram) what is it you ask of me, old friend.

Dilbun Vont: thee elimination of said parasitic.. programming. Can id be done?

Kligson: (via hologram) you are very well aware of how morally disgusting I find your request. But you assume my human half might see that conciseness’s future actions as a hindrance to my own endeavors.

Dilbun Vont: such purty words, so will you snuff him out fuur your old buddy or not?

Kligson: (via hologram) what you ask is purely a moral quandary; do I  destroy an artificial maniac only for a biological one to seize power in its place. Do you see my problem.

Dilbun Vont: dis maniac won’t make ur kriffin droids into his grunts, plus last time I checked you don’t care bout us biologicals. So what I do with said prize is meaningless to you eh?

Kligson: (via hologram) I cannot journey from the confines of droid world and I will not permit biological beings aboard. Therefore my holographic form will accompany you as my proxy.

Dilbun Vont: I can’t afford to have your hologram being traced, dare no way you can haul this tub wit us?

Kligson: (via hologram) I assure you, this isn’t a hologram along the lines of your limited technology, it’s a pure electronic entity sprung from my own being imbued with all my expertise in slicing. You may now depart my space.

Dilbun Vont: well nice to have you wit me, in whateva form.

The electronic entity marches down the bridge with Gaff and Commander Vont as the six destroyers blast into hyperspace.

Cockpit-Rabbit’s Foot-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Utric Sandov: (speaking into comlink) alright, tani all clear on deck?

Tani Ab’yla: (via comlink) Rodger.

Utric Sandov: don’t go turning into a clanker on me, have you made contact with red squadron?

Tani Ab’yla: (via comlink) there standing by and detached from command structure as per your orders.

Utric Sandov: (speaking into comlink) great; credit the outlaws accounts before Rianna sets them about their next task.
Star Speeder 3000-Endor Express-Moddell sector-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

RX-24: Welcome aboard! This is Captain Rex from the cockpit. I know this is probably your first flight, and it's...mine, too. (chuckles) Well, it looks like we're going to have a smooth flight to the Moddell Sector, so I'll go ahead and open the cockpit shield.

As the droid turns round it finds a total of four blaster pistols pointed at it and an empty cabin.

Jaxxon: (pointing blasters) there’s to be a change in our flight path here today.

RX-24: what happened to the passengers, you filthy rebels didn’t shoot them out the air lock did you!

Dash Rendar: too bad those kriffin bothans where so morally against involving the innocent passengers in this suicide run.

RX-24: do whatever you rapscallions want to the ship, but leave me out of it. 

Amaiza Foxtrain: (pointing blaster) sorry, need you to confuse a fellow droid for awhile, Saren get your droid over here.

Rianna Saren: zeeo, enlighten your comrade as to the plain.

 Z-58-0: (extending slicer tool into Rex’s mainframe) this is so wrong.

Dash Rendar: what hijacking a common vacation linear or programming a fellow droid for this kinda mission.

Z-58-0: (extending slicer tool into Rex’s mainframe) all of the above.

Rianna Saren: guess its back to the fringes for you three then?

Amaiza Foxtrain: (lowering blaster) there, easiest credits ever earned in the employ of the Rebel Alliance.

Jaxxon: (lowering blasters) you said it, love to say its been a good time workin with the lot of you. But I ain’t no kriffin phony.

Dash Rendar: my favorite part has to be them holding our ships as chattel while we carry off this part of the plan. Take it easy.

The three leave the reprogrammed star liner pilot and exit the craft via the airlock as the bothan spies enter.

Rianna Saren: here we go again, zeeo.

Death Star III-Moddell sector-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The star speeder 3000 reverts from hyperspace and finds a clash of imperial forces above the battle station, right on cue the fighters of red squadron also revert from the infinite tunnel of hyperspace.

Yap-En Soear: this is red leader, whats with this? Comm chatters is static and my instruments are abuzz? Care to confirm any new intel bothans.

Star Speeder 3000-Endor Express-Death Star III-Moddell sector-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Utric Sandov: I’m sorry your eminence, but this is all new to us as well. But I believe we can use this to our advantage, I’ve plotted a hyper jump around this little imperial slap fight.

Yap-En Soear: (via comlink) too bad this is all confidential, would love to see the look on those rogues faces when we tell them we hyper jumped into a death star trench.

Rianna Saren: gonna be alotta scared people if we do that captain. But I feel yea on that front.

Tani Ab’aya: alright course locked, here we go.

The entire fighter wing as led by the vacation linear blasts into a short hyper jump and reverts from hyperspace within the trench along the surface of the enormous battle station. The small force speeds towards the oddly placed exhaust port.

Yap-En Soear: (via comlink) alright keep us blank on that sensor screen or this whole parties kriffed.

Tani Ab’aya:  were three slicers strong over here, your eminence. This things never gonna know what hit it.

Yap-En Soear: (via comlink) gonna be easier than skinning Ibma Cratis on Lorrbeqi.

The small armada rockets past non-responsive turbo laser turrets on their unchallenged run towards the unprotected exhaust port.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-Death Star III-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

The Gall fleet takes heavy firepower and looses entire tie fighter wings in the blink of an eye. Commander Vont stands alongside the insectoid Gaff and the electronic representation of the cyborg Kligson.

Gaff: we cannot survive this battle, one imperial class star destroyer is more than a match for this fleet.

Dilbun Vont: didn’t come dis far to get blasted outta the kriffin stars, why the kriff ain’t you telling the infected computer cores over dare to destroy those other ships!

Kligson: processing. Connection trace unsuccessful; the intruder is no longer separate from the core. They are one and the intruder lacks the programming to operate said hardware.

Dilbun Vont: break id down to basic for us aight!

Kligson: the station is without an operational system for its main functions. Without said programming it’s a useless lump of hardware. This ig-88a conciseness requires a great deal of time to adjust to the tasks of functioning within these confines.  Put simply an assassin droids programming cannot stand up to the riggers of operating an entire battle station. 

Dilbun Vont: so why the kriff don’t you override that things control and implant urself! You could run that thing.

Kligson: I will make an attempt. There appears to be a crude array of sliced protocols in place, I will suspend them.

Death Star III-Trench-Moddell sector-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Without warning the turbo laser cannons open fire on the advancing armada, several X-wing fighters erupt into massive fire balls. The rear wing breaks off and attacks the turbo laser cannons while the front wing continues down the trench following the now battered star linear.

Yap-En Soear: all wings break off and regroup for another jump at the port.  Spies get your zero gee gear on and prepare to eject, my boys will get you.

Star Speeder 3000-Endor Express-Death Star III-Moddell sector-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

RX-24: I’m sorry to inform you; that due to our excellent flight record. We only carry one zero-gee suit aboard. Standard procedure.

Rianna Saren: great we gonna draw circuits?

Utric Sandov: no the suit is yours, you and Zeeo can skim the surface and get out of the line of fire faster than any of us could in an escape pod.

RX-24: Star Speeder 3000’s do not contain escape pods either. Standard procedure.

Utric Sandov: be sure to inform the outlaws of how badly their assitance was needed.

Rianna Saren: (attaching breath mask) I’ll give them an apprioate response, good luck.

The Twi’lek and the droid launch out of an emergency hatch and veer off into space. The two are picked up by an observant X-wing. The fighter flees the scene once the two are aboard.

Yap-En Soear: (via comlink) I’ll guide you in as best I can, perhaps, I can still fire off a shot at the port and deny you two martydom.

Utric Sandov: thanks for the thought, but you’re shields aren’t gonna make it three more klicks. Might as well save your power sir.

Tani Ab’yla: keep your silence in our memory, your emience.

Yap-En Soear: (via comlink) very well.

The Lorrbeqian king veers off and blasts into light speed as the star linear continues its suicide run towards the exhaust port while getting battered by turbo laser fire.

Utric Sandov: so is this the morally acceptable solution tani?

Tani Ab’yla: what’s two more bothan spies beneath the foundations of galactic peace.

RX-24: thank you for flying star tours.

The star speeder 3000 smashes into the exhaust port at full speed igniting the pipeline to the main reactor, the ensuing chain reaction complety destroys the galactic albatross.

Victory II class Star Destroyer-Ravager XIII-Moddell sector-4 years after the Battle of Yavin IV

Kligson: (transmission blurring) a pair of bothan slicers piloted a star linear into the exhaust port, the ig had its turrets attempting to destroy it. Unsuccessfully I’d might add.

Gaff: you don’t think it was…

Dilbun Vont: oh yea it wuz them, I’m as good as off da hook with them vapped.

Gaff: you’re the one they bribed!

Dilbun Vont: not my fault they aactually got the actual plans from that attempt! Ol augie’d neva shoulda been on that kriffin thing anyways! Not my fault.

Gaff: (releasing stinger) you pathetic excuse for a being!

Kligson: (transmission bluring) the death star plans where actually absconded by rebels aboard a fertlizer freighter. Whose location was personally leaked by the emperor himself via his then proxy the late head of Black Sun; Prince Xizor. Your vendetta against the bothan spies and your self hatrid over the emperor’s death are both unfounded vont.

Dilbun Vont: thanks, think you could slice us outta this battle?

The electronic entity dissipates. The insectoid marches from the tactical salon in a hurried pace, vont turns his attention to the advancing Imperial Class Star Destroyer.

Dilbun Vont: all craft of dis fleet, were chargin that destroyer! Fire the main thrusters and stand by for light speed!

The six Victory II class Star Destroyers ram there way free of the lone surviving warlords also battered Destroyer; taking heavy damage in the process Vont’s lead destroyer manages to obliterate the opposing warlords vessel and clears a way for his remaining fleet detachment to escape into lightspeed.


Drive-In Holoplex-Gall-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

A holodrama projected against a Cliffside comes to a glorious end; as the credits begin to roll the gathered land speeders veer off in separate directions.

A rusty speeder does a barrel roll against the holodrama itself and makes for the imperial enclave.

Dilbun Vont: wut we gonna eat?

Cittro: not really into that fodder we got in the freezer either?

Dilbun Vont: I wuz till I found out those kriffin cliff wampas where engineered.

Cittro: considering how late it is; were gonna hafta be another one of the billions served by ol’ “Biscuit Baron“.

Dilbun Vont: hopefully dat borkin manager gots some sliders on the grill.

Biscuit Baron Speed-Thru-Gall-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont: (narration) they call em sliders cause’a how fast they work their magic on your digestive tract.

The once garish land speeder sits in a crowded three Decker speed-thru line wrapped around the grease pit. Cittro attempts to sit closer to Vont, but the older man edges the younger woman away.

Dilbun Vont: told ya it ain’t happenin partna.

Cittro: then why em I still with you? We act like were together, and you never let me get close….

Dilbun Vont: kid, you could find yourself a kriffin moff or some other high muckety muck imperial and have a little marriage.

Cittro: ain’t bein a kid for sometime now vont! And why can’t we have that?

Dilbun Vont: I know dis’ll only end in….

The speed-thru line is broken up by the sudden arrival of a Tie Berserker which catches Vont’s speeder in a tractor beam. And speeds towards the enclave with it in toe. 

Upon landing the Tie Berserker disperses a squad of storm troopers whom pull vont from the speeder violently.

He is thrashed to the ground as the troopers assume a position around him.  Armand Isard, Sate Pestage and Zsinj stride towards the encircled vont.

Stormtrooper: this the scum?

Armand Isard: well done sergeant. Stand him up, he has a bit of explaining to do before we proceed.

Dilbun Vont: betta be a kriffin world exploding izard, this ain’t gonna be your…

Armand Isard: silent! The charges are severe to say the least.

Dilbun Vont: augie’s gonna have your kriffin heads….

Sate Pestage:  seditiousness only arouses our emperors wrath!

Armand Isard: now where is that turncoat padawan you’ve sheltered for these past seven years? I hear she is intended for death.

Stormtrooper: sir! She’s gone.

Armand Isard: pay it no mind; a mere girl is of no concern to us. Bring him.

Vont is herded into the Tie Berserker, Cittro watches from a ridge as the vessel reaches orbit.

Landing Field-Niollipa-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

An imperial landing craft sets down across from a small gathering of enforcers of the Neimoidian gangster Big Galgu; whom is surrounded by a motley crew of beetle droid mounted repurposed battle droids. Commander Zsinj leads a platoon of stormtroopers whom kick the captive Dilbun Vont down the ramp into the mud.

Zsinj: thanks to your continued assistance our emperor has agreed to your compensation.

Big Galgu: well thanks to the emperor following my advice we caught ol kriff hed here with his hand in the imperial cookie jar.

Dilbun Vont: dats what this is about! Trust me, I ain’t the only imp on the take or takin a bigger slice for demselves.

Zsinj: you’ve offended the emperor for the last time vont! Count yourself fortunate enough that galgu included your personal demise as a condition in their dealings.

Big Galgu: I believe your stay in my system is over commander zsinj?

Zsinj: my how the recently elevated love to throw their weight around. Troops, remount.

Big Galgu: and don’t let me catch any picket ships tooling round the sector or the deal is off get me?

Dilbun Vont: whut bout the kid, zsinj?

Zsinj: don’t worry yourself Vont, way I hear it not even the real Jedi are much opposition these days. I’d be more concerned with the slavers getting a hold of her.

The craft lifts off temporally causing an updraft, the light around vont is obscured by the form of Big Galgu whom picks the human man up by the neck.

Big Galgu: I always expected this moment would include a pile of fodder plummeting towards my boots, guess you grew a pair after all these years eh?

Dilbun Vont: so guess the fromm gangs problems stem from you as well?

Big Galgu: I’m flattered, naw lil tig carbon flushed their holdings and jabba ain’t a kriffin credit union. End o’ story.

Dilbun Vont: so why ain’t I gargling my own teeth galgu! Wut you playin at here?

The massive Neimoidian breaks vonts neck and drops him to the ground.  Within a second his neck heals.

Big Galgu: something on this rock causes humans to regenerate.

Dilbun Vont: wuts the drawback aside from the pain!

Big Galgu: its gonna collide with its star after a couple rotations. No regeneration from dat. Oh and the imperials ain’t got a clue as to why I arranged for them to drop you here, my sector and all you know.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) still no fodder on his boots.

Regional Naval Supply Area-Gall-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

A string of blaster bolts fly at random past the turncoat padawan Cittro as she makes her way towards the flight deck of what was once Vont’s Imperial Garrison.

Stormtrooper sergeant: (firing blaster) thought this was supposed to be a Jedi!

Stormtrooper private: (firing blaster) maybe its another drill. Huuh

The agile young woman ignites her ashen bladed light saber and slashes the brace to a wall of crates loaded with highly explosive Baradium canisters.

Having cleared the blast doors cittro leaps from the two story platform paying little attention to the massive explosion. 

She lands across from the prototype of Cygnus Spaceworks: Alpha-class Xg-1 Star Wing. Long rumored to be the first in a line of hyper drive equipped fighters.

The fighter lifts into the skies of Gall and blasts towards space as fast as it can. As the vessel reaches space, a cloven yellow hand grips Cittros shoulder lightly.

The turncoat padawan lets out a bloodcurdling scream as the fighter blasts into light speed.

Thorn Forest-Niollipa-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

Big Galgu stands at the edge of a skiff watching as Dilbun is chased by a overgrown Snare Beast through a densely packed forest of sentient thorn trees.

Vont is continually stung by the snare beast and slashed at by the thorn trees. Only to regenerate for the wounds to happen again.

Dilbun Vont: I’m gunna run outta blood galgu!

Big Galgu: better run faster then vont, never seen anybody actually regrow whole limbs on this rock, kriffin snare beasts gittin hungry.

Vont is chased to the edge of a cliff overlooking a series of bioluminescent waterfalls. The snare beast closes in for the kill only to be impaled by a thorn tree, which proceeds to devour the creature.

Big Galgu: never a creature more wild than you vont. Get up here, gotta feed your keester, otherwise there be no more fun eh?

The bulky Neimoidian hefts Vont up onto the skiff with one pull, he lands adjacent to Galgu whom glowers down at his captive. He launches a vat of chum at Vont.

Big Galgu: dats the trouble with being held captive by a fellow ex-con, I’s know whut we got fed on desolation alley as well. And that there ain’t even as good as what they feed the scum in isolation.

Dilbun Vont: sure its betta then wut they heap into a communal hive, ya kriffin grub.

Big Galgu: (punching vont in the face) neva seen a spineless purse worlder do dat eh?

Dilbun Vont: you tell me, I neva had to guard those treasure nests with my life.

Big Galgu: well afta naboo we both had a few profitless years now didn’t we?

Dilbun Vont: oh old times, last I herd ol’ augies still trying to recover all the missin loot from the purse worlds…..

Big Galgu: that kriffin bastage ain’t ever gonna get ahold of dose creds believe me. And he’ll neva get his stormies all the way inta the corporate sector either.

Dilbun Vont: historically speakin sith never touch it, its da the underworlds that I hear bein dryin up a bit lately. Can’t even siphon imperial credits without ending up like dis.

Big Galgu: dis ain’t bout no kriffin credits Vont, you’re here because of a deal I made with the emperor. Best part is, I didn’t even give him a head start to whose behind that fiasco seven years ago.

Dilbun Vont: (choking down intestines) oh the hush hush hit attempt on triple zero or the hush hush planetary bombardment? Or the fall of the republic proper? Lotsa poodoo hit the fan seven years ago pal.

Big Galgu: oh yeah, been great out on the outer rim. Profits are abound to anyone able to churn the urns right if ya get me.

Dilbun Vont: bein kinda stuck in a kriffin post with my…with a kriffin turncoat padawan learner. Most ill gotten gains I’ve been able to sniff out where what got me sittin across from your kriffin arse.

Big Galgu: oh it was bout something very hush hush.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) nevea pay a grub what he asks, let him lower his price after you threaten to buy elsewhere, dhey always want repeat business to pay for that first deal.  Or so augie once said.

Hyperspace route connecting the Zhar system to the Mid Rim-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

The turncoat padawan awakes in the cargo hold of the prototype vessel and finds herself within the salivating thrall of the insectoid Kobok: Gaff.

Cittro: what is the meaning of this!

Gaff: oh my lovely awakes, I must excuse the spines on my arms. they pack quite a punch for your types.

Cittro: lovely yourself pal! Where em we bound!

Gaff: I seek your hive mate; Vont.

Cittro: were not…like that.

Gaff: good, good. So does it trouble you to know he may not make it outta this predicament. Or can we point our ship towards the unknown regions and form a human/kobok hybrid colony?

Cittro: (igniting light saber) not even if that genetic combination where possible, buddy. Now get your lust toad kester back into the cockpit!

Gaff: ok, so we are intended for vont then? Quite the age difference between you?

Cittro: remember yourself in my prescience. Where is the ship headed?

Gaff: so you don’t even want to know who I em? Most are at least peeved at the sight of an unrecognizable insectoid.

Cittro: most aren’t me, did my formative years with the kriffin Jedi. where are we bound!

Gaff: we seek those whom detained vont, since they know where he would be held.  My status as an imperial agent requires a bit of time in processing. Time enough for you to gather the data. No matter how well your objectives are achieved, I still retain my status.

Cittro: how exactly does a non-humanoid hold any status in the galactic empire these days?

Gaff: one would also venture a query regarding the shelf life of a turncoat padawan as well?

Docking Bay-Victory I-class Star Destroyer: Iron Fist-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

The insectoid marches down the ramp of the Star Wing and is met by a platoon of storm troopers accompanied by Zsinj.

Stormtrooper private: (leveling blaster) hold it right there bug!

Zsinj: at attention troops! This is no mere non-humanoid. What brings an affiliate of Admiral Screed to my vessel?

Gaff: nothing out of the ordinary I can assure you. I was in pursuit of an enemy of the empire departing the Zhar System, namely the moon of Gall. And was hoping to gather support from you in this matter.

Zsinj: Gall, you say? Then might I ask why you couldn’t obtain support from Commander Vont’s garrison?

Gaff: it would appear from the comm-static that vont was either unavailable or deliberately avoiding the imperial channels.

Zsinj: well I can tell you on good authority that Gall is off limits to most imperial traffic these days. Its all classified. As for assistance I have none to offer, my tasks are of the highest importance.

Gaff: then hopefully I will regain her trail.

Zsinj: happy hunting.

The insectoid scuttles back up the ramp of the star wing. The troops march back down the docking bay following Zsinj.

Bridge-Victory I-class Star Destroyer: Iron Fist-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

Commander Zsinj strides down the walkway of the bridge towards the windows, the crew immediately begins to shuffle about their tasks in a more efficient manner. The commander stops atop the post of a swarthy imperial comm-officer.

Zsinj: is that my code cylinder there? Milton.

Before the flop sweat ridden officer can begin a series of half witted rebuttals; a light saber pierces the window and causes it to give way to the recesses of Space.

The bridge is instantly caught in a decompression updraft as the crew is sucked out into the void. The turncoat padawan storms into the scene with magnetized boots and makes for the computer console while brandishing a slicer tool.

The commander grips a bulk head tightly as Cittro fetches his code cylinders from his breast pocket. With the intel gathered she releases  the magnetrons and drifts into space before the window is replaced by a transparisteel panel.

As gravity is restored, zsinj plummets to the deck of his bridge and immediately shoots upwards barking orders only to find his entire bridge crew was lost to space. In the distance cittro can be seen boarding the star wing before it blasts into light speed.

Zsinj: Gaff!

Landing Field-Niollipa-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

The hulking Neimoidian drags vont by a chain towards his craft.

Big Galgu: so wutcha know bout some “grand equalizer” that ol’augies building? And don’t play dumb, I gots word from the top brass bout the imperial fund allocation bureau being slapped down bout it being over extended lately. So any peep?

Dilbun Vont: for ffibs sake…go kriff yourself!

Big Galgu: (dropping chain) kriff me?

Galgu lumbers towards Vont with murderous intent, as he comes within six paces of the human. Dilbun snaps the chain upwards and around Galgus neck with one motion pulling him face first into a knee. Bones crack as the impact is made, but Neimoidians don’t regenerate on the penal moon. With another motion vont shatters Galgu’s hand and cracks a rib with a well placed kick. The Neimoidian takes the beating without a single noise. Before he can right himself vont jumps atop his back and tightens the chain round the Neimoidians neck.

Dilbun Vont: you’ve had your six, now its my turn. Whose laughing now!

Big Galgu: how long have you bein puttin this together ya kriffin sleemo?

Dilbun Vont: jus had to waste the beetle droids and here we are.  First ovv; whose the leak in the imperial court!

Big Galgu: wuz dis whole thing set by ol’ augie!

Dilbun Vont: duh. Lil tig fromm managed to brag to the wrong people bout his dads dealings with you and that whole trigon mess. Augie never believed jabba would snuff out Sise Fromm over insults nor kriffin credits, so that leaves you the smallest pup on the list of Mafioso’s.

Big Galgu: so giving you up to me was just to get you close to me and try gittin me to spill my guts? Dats the plan!

Without warning the hulking Neimoidian breaks the chain with his teeth and wraps his legs round vont and tosses him backwards.

Big Galgu: before I smash yur head with a rock, it was Mas Amedda. Kriffer got edged outta the inner circle not even a day into the new order, nuthin worse then guys like izard,pestazz, dwebiana and you taking a seat at the table in place of him.

Vont lunges towards Galgu at full speed. In a blur of motion he runs up the Neimoidians brutish form and performs a spinning round house kick to galgu’s face mid air. Only to land on his ribs as he falls to the ground after the facial abuse.

Without pause vont attempts to stomp Galgu’s rib cage, but is suddenly stopped by the crushing power of the Neimoidians hand around his foot.  Vont looses balance due to the severity of the pain and falls as the wound is rapidly healed by the moons regenerative properties. The heavily wounded Neimoidian staggers as he attempts to regain his footing, vont also languishes in the dirt.

Big Galgu: so wuts the big plan if I just kill your keester here vont! Huh whats the emperor gonna do without the intelligence he sent you in after? that’s the problem with this empire. Full of nuthin but slime balls looking to keep ol’ augie content in his palace. Funny thing is all us gangsters cannot be erased vont, dis empire would find itself a thousand of upstarts carvin out territories for themselves.

Dilbun Vont: dats why it was you he targeted galgu, you ain’t got no future. For all your boasting and showboating, you have no holdings nor any rackets going. Just a thug that thinks he’s his own boss. Pathetic really.

Big Galgu: (thrashing vont with his boots) I command whoevers I pay! I got three sectors worth of profit! And unlike the other gangsters I ain’t lame enough to have a soft spot palace to get hit in! dats why they sent you!

Dilbun Vont: (catching and twisting foot) don’t make me laugh! Three sectors full of non-sentients laboring under the worship of you. A kriffin false idol. We did our homework on you pal. Oh an the lost purse world funds where actually left there as a means to fund your little organization.

Big Galgu: (catching vont in a upper cut while standing) spare me war profiteer!

As vont uncermonelisly lands a few paces away from Galgu an concussion missle makes its mark between the two. From out of the dust lands a Star Wing prototype vessel.

Its ramp extends upon landing, the turncoat padawan sprints down onto the scene. She settles near vont, and ignites her light saber as galgu regains his stance across from them. Cittro attempts a non-force assisted a saber throw, but a lone blaster bolt catches her saber hilt wielding hand causing her to drop the weapon.

The insectoid Gaff enters the fray with a smoking blaster leaveled at the two humans. Cittro springs towards Gaff whom lets off a string of blaster shots at the girl, the bolts are dodged gracefully.

Only for the girl to be caught on the Kobok’s sleep serum filled elbow spine. Cittro falls to the ground.

Gaff:  gee if only Longo Two-Guns could be in attendance we’d have ourselves a full reunion eh?

Big Galgu: oh and lil miss Mahwi Lihnn, can’t forget bout her gaff.

Dilbun Vont: that little minx sure loved playin us ovv one another, probably a good thing ol augies pet zabrak took her out.

Big Galgu: she wuz my dame vont, wutca you talkin bout her playin us all? You wuz just a young pup back then.

Gaff: oh havn’t gotten any brighter with age have we?

Dilbun Vont:  so whuts your angle gaff….

The insectoid tosses a blaster each to Vont and Galgu. Both assume gun fighter stances. The three start pacing in a counter clock wise circle.

The wind picks up some dust as the sunlight begins to fade. Without a seconds notice, Gaff opens fire on Big Galgu whom attempts to unload his chargless pistol on vont whom sprints up to the Neimoidian and fires off a bolt between the eyes. Galgu falls to the ground.

Gaff: so trusting, always was his weakness.

Dilbun Vont: wuz Mahwi really cavorting with Galgu?

Gaff: real hive like being was she. Galaxy be better without her. So whose the next target?

Dilbun Vont: Amedda apparently. Thinkin augie can sort it out on his time though. After this nightmare, I’m thinking bout Letting cit have her way and settling into a quieter life back on gall.

Gaff: there room for another imperial agent over there?

Dilbun Vont: of course, as long as the kid here doesn’t kill you for shootin her in the kriffin hand. I know just the way to cool her jets.

Crimson Casino-The Wheel-Besh Gorgon System-13 years before the battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont: (narration) always wanted a Gammorean binding ceremony, but hell a kriffin night on the wheel is just wut a nerf herder like me needs after gittin the snot beat outta him by galgu.

Cittro and Dilbun stand face to face while a Ffib Priest places both his hands on their shoulders while uttering an binding incantation.

Ransel Sac: without compromise do you Cittro accept Dilbun as your partner till you may both enter the nether realm?

Cittro: of course.

Ransel Sac: and do you Dilbun, without hesitation accept..

Dilbun Vont: sure ding….

Dilbun Vont: (narration) priest neva said anything bout a kriffin kid.

The Ffib Priest is taken aback by the sheer rudness of vonts acceptance of Cittro and walks away shaking his head in disgust. The newly bound couple share a bottle of Whyren’s Reserve as Gaff looks on.

« on: March 23, 2010, 07:38 AM »

Skylane over Legislative Borough-Coruscant-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

A shiny airspeeder recklessly speeds through the air traffic, the vehicle is piloted by a drunken Dilbun Vont as accompanied by his new partner in crime the Turncoat padawan; Cittro.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) tha pad was very interested in anything contrary to the jedi code in those days. and i myself was not used to dames that had an interest in my ol' bits and pieces. personally always hadda taste for the exotic strums of my choosin, plus i ain't kriffed in da hed enough to mess with kids, we used to tear scum like that to pieces in desolation alley....

Cittro: (excited) why don't we mow down some pedestrians?

Dilbun Vont: jus got dis speeder kid!, you picked the damn thing out why you want me to smash it up already?

Cittro: don't you have free reign now that your friends seized power?

Dilbun Vont: you make a guud point kid, but i don't think ol' augie'd be happy bout me celebrating dat way...don't know how he's gonna take you and me teaming up.

Cittro: how could a politician like palpatine know i was a jedi?

Dilbun Vont: (taking a swig) ol' augie's a bit more complicated dan that sweat just wait and see.

The speeder violently comes to a halt beside the busted out window of the once Chancellors Office. Disturbed the Emperor turns round and glares at the speeder parked outside his office window. Vont and Cittro enter the office.

Emperor Palpatine: (angered) have we already forgotten our place Dilbun?

Dilbun Vont: (belching) not at all Yur majesty. just wanted to sneak in an, congratulate ya. temple raid was beautiful, those kriff heads didn't see it coming...

Emperor Palpatine: i'm glad you made it out of the temple unharmed. as i hear it you've met my new apprentice...Darth Vader.

The ominous suited form of Darth Vader walks awkwardly, his breathing echoes down the hallway as he enters the room. Cittro backs behind Dilbun at his entrance.

Darth Vader: there is a jedi in your presence my lord! why is that child not dead Vont!

Dilbun Vont: the hero wit no fear?

Darth Vader: (holding vont in a choke hold) that name no longer holds any meaning to me!

Emperor Palpatine: Vont is beyond your reach my apprentice. put him down or you  will face my wrath!

Darth Vader: (releasing vont) what of the Padawan!

Emperor Palpatine: yes, what of the Padawan. care to explain Dilbun?

Dilbun Vont: first ovv, kriff you Vader!. secondly the kid ain't a jedi no longer she's my partna. gonna train her up to be like me.

Emperor Palpatine: come to me child, is this the truth of the matter? personally i would never suspect Dilbun of pursuing another line of depravity, but i do not know the lengths at which jedi interrogation goes.

Cittro: (brandishing the gungan vibro-axe) i personally slaughtered my fellow padawans with this! i renounce the ways of the jedi and will never use the force again so long as i live!

Emperor Palpatine: (admiring the axe) so the jedi found it? I believe we have reached a turning point in our relationship Dilbun. sadly i no longer require a berserker in the shadows, as you can see Lord Vader is my public servant in the matters that once concerned you.

Dilbun Vont: yur tellin me all the stuff i handled is now gonna be public knowledge?  what bout reprises! all the tricks we set...

Emperor Palpatine: (returning the axe to Cittro) keep this weapon child, consider it your form of...identification. so long as you remain with Vont you are protected from the likes of Vader and Order 66. Now that your free of the dogmatic jedi would you like to embrace the true power of the force?

Cittro: i hate the force and i refuse to use it! ever again.

Emperor Palpatine: interesting, a self hating Force Sensitive. well its a pity you refuse to embrace your powers, but perhaps its for the best.

Darth Vader: yes, the failures of Bandomeer are already enough to maintain my lord.

Dilbun Vont: so where the kriff do i fit in yur new empire?

Emperor Palpatine: commanding officer of the black ops will remain your duty for the time being. a garrison on Gall is currently under construction, upon completion you will be installed as it's Commander.

Dilbun Vont: so dis really is da ol heave hoe?

Emperor Palpatine: i'm afraid so my friend. although you've been of use against jedi in the past, the continued extermination of that order is well under control. the details of your new post will be revealed to you in good time, until then. train your pupil and await my orders.

Vont and Cittro quickly exit the office the same way they entered, the air speeder does a barrel roll and speeds off into the distance. Vader turns his attention to a blissful emperor.

Emperor Palpatine: as you see my young apprentice, your place in my pack has been filled by many before; you have a lot to live up to.

Darth Vader: why do you place one such as this Vont out of my reach! And why do you allow him companionship when you could not foresee Padme’s demise!  Why is he allowed a partner when I’m not even given the freedom of my human form within this living tomb!

Emperor Palpatine: you could never have achieved your full potential in the guise of the emotional hero with no fear whom the jedi order somehow tolerated!  Oh yes I do hope that Dilbun and that young harlot spawn a whole gaggle of potential replacements.

Darth Vader:  you sabotage me!

The sith lord sits up from his desk and confronts his newly minted apprentice.

Emperor Palpatine: since my disfigurement and the events of our take over my patience is at an end. The Breaking of a kath hound usually demands a short period of kind treatment  which adds a layer of assumption on the hound. Thus making the period of  said severe adjustment; all the more traumatizing. 

Darth Vader: I’m no kath hound, my powers even in this technological terror are no match for you!

The sith lord releases his hold over the remains of Anakin Skywalker.

Darth Vader: ahhh!

Emperor Palpatine: your body armor has many devices within it lord Vader, aside from sustaining your life, which I’ll remind you only once here and now is mine. It contains a series of sith venom dispensers within it; You are the first sith lord whom is fully controlled by his master, your the most pathetic visage of power this galaxy as ever seen. All will fear you my apprentice, but you will know that they fear a shattered puppet.

Darth Vader: I will destroy the dispensers! I am not without my skills! Ahh!…

Emperor Palpatine: have you not been listening? You are now mine! Yes the chosen one of fabled jedi prophesy is once again a slave to a master!

Darth Vader: what is thy bidding my master?

Emperor Palpatine: good. In three days time you will lead an mission of annihilation on the planet of Caamas. A Jedi led revolution is set to stem from that planet, I have foreseen it. Tarkin will lead the planetary bombardment, you will command the black opps and the bothan spies in sabotaging the shield generator.  A Jedi of past relation to Skywalker will be amongst the revolutionaries. I expect your feelings on the matter to be of no question Lord Vader. 

Darth Vader: yes my master.

Dilbun: (narration) oh yes, dat stinkin Vader goon was a constant punchin bag for ol’ Augie when it all got started.  But it was dis in da open poodoo that ol’ augie pulled that really got the ball rollin…

Unknown Location-Outer Rim Territorries-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

A gathering of Gangsters, Mafioso’s and pure scum stand within a room without windows bickering,
The gathering is hosted by Mas Amedda & Lama Su but attended by Jabba The Hutt, Bib Fortuna, Prince Xizor, Sise Fromm, Big Galgu, and guarded by Rokur Gepta whom silently stands at the center of the meeting.

Sise Fromm: why is Jabba allowed to have his majordomo present? While my dear Tiggy has to wait outside with Vlix?

Bib Fortuna: Die Wanna Wanga, as the 'High Beeser of….

Big Galgu: I’ve heard enough bickering, may we come to the purpose of this gathering Repub..excuse my mistake; Imperial Tergiversators!

Mas Amedda: (clearly outraged)  first of all I’d like to thank all of you for attending this gathering on such short notice. And I’d like to yet again stress the point that we are completely safe to plan anything we see fit to remedy the impending situation I’m about to reveal; with our Friend & Allie Rokur Gepta’s assistance we are free of all force-sensitive intervention within this room.

The Tund Sorcerer continues to stand silently at the center of the room. Attention is returned to Amedda.

Prince Xizor:  unlike yourself. many of us have financial matters to keep in check across the stars, so could you cast off your bureaucratic pompousness for once in your life?

Jabba the Hutt: Keepuna!

Mas Amedda: very well; some hours ago my spy droids in the Emperors old senate office caught wind of a
xenocentric plot to eradicate all life on the planet Caamas. Just because our Sith Lord emperor foresaw a possible Jedi Revolution springing from that system. Now I know at first glance my words are meaningless to all of you? Yes. But take into account the fact that all your past relations with our emperor are in fact meaningless to him as well. We slaved to install him at the top. And now we find out he’s a Xenophobe?

Big Galgu: so you’re saying that Palpatine won’t stop at Caamas, that all non human species face discrimination and worse yet extinction? 

Lama Su: the COMPNOR institution is all one needs look at to see the tides Palpatines Empire will ride.

Sise Fromm: ok I see the point were all not human, they are. The empire’s gonna be human centric, great. We can triple our profits in protection in the mid rim alone.

Prince Xizor: how can you protect others when you  find yourself out in the void? With this Empire running the way it does Palpatine will not require our secretive  and expensive partnership.

Bib Fortuna: so all we may need do is make ourselves a bit more useful to the Emperor, there are plenty of ways to curry favor in the outer rim. For instance if we where to cut back our influence on the core and concentrate on the fringes. We could afford this empire a false sense of security.

Big Galgu: interesting idea, make em think their troopers got a handle on the galaxy, when in fact were just biding our time in the fringes.

Mas Amedda: I am proud of the way you can all find comfort in a parasitic lifestyle my comrades; but we still have the issue at hand. Unless we deal with this emperor now inside of twenty years maybe less, the galaxy won’t be safe enough to carry on the way we have. I have heard rumblings of a grand equalizer on the books, of what form it will take I cannot say. But we must make our move now.

Sise Fromm: ok, so you got all the details on this Caamasi hit right?

Lama Su: troop deployments from Kamino suggest a planetary bombardment from orbit. 

Mas Amedda: Before I admit the next pieces of this coup into the room sadly I must say we cannot forestall the doom of Caamas, that is not our aim. We can however work around this event.

Rokur Gepta: Enter.

A young Mandalorian Warrior enters the room revealing it to be an artificial mist as accompanied by a Clawdite Changeling.

Big Galgu: the plot thickens.

Jabba the Hutt: Bo Shuda, fett my Bukee.

Sise Fromm: I’m not paying this kids fees, no way.

Mas Amedda: The boys fees are waved for this one time.

Lama Su: isn’t that right Boba? I believe you have a personal reason to delay the Bombardment?

Boba Fett: yes and lets leave it at that.

Prince Xizor: capital; now tell us what of the changelings involvement?

Mas Amedda: all in good time.

Gnarlytown-Coruscant-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

The glaring light of life on the upscale shines across a sparse underpass wherein sits a vagrant Besalisk attempting to pass out.  His slumber is denied as four silhouettes march towards him. Before the vagrant can attempt to defend himself; a young girl violently begins raining blows down upon him. The three others slowly approach the troubled youth.

Gauer: never seen such vigor for this in a recruit before?

Dilbun Vont: (holding Gungan Vibro-axe) yur telling me; she really needs to get her beating skills down. Way too eager to kill.

J’mee Fett: why don’t you just flash train her commander? It would really be more..

Gauer:  they don’t make a flash training program on how to be a mercenary aight? Takes a certain balance to maintain it. Not so much murderer, and not so much butcher. it’s a fine line we walk clone.

J’mee Fett: there are benefits of flash training at which she will never receive in this manner Commander. ARC training includes the specific bio-signature of all beings at five minutes till certain death. If ms. Cittro is selected for such extreme interrogation; she will not garner evidence but instead a body count.

Dilbun Vont: point taken Clone. Cit! enough on the stomach he’s gonna rupture, ya gotta be random or day might  get used to the pain and attack.

Cittro: (blinded by rage) awww!

As the scene becomes that of a murder, Vont finds himself rushing to save the indigents life rather than running to join in the fray. Vont takes hold of Cittro by the shoulders and pulls her kicking and screaming form away from none other than Dexter Jettster.

Dexter Jettster: (coughing) oh Dilbun…its you. Thought you might’ve perished like everyone else in this upside down galaxy….

Cittro: (attempting to get free) he’s a jedi sympathizer!

Dilbun Vont: Dex…..

Gauer: what’s the holdup vont let her ice this deadbeat.

J’mee Fett: statistically speaking commander, a dead body can’t serve as a witness.

Experiencing a sudden urge of friendship towards Dex, Vont finds himself unable to deal with the current situation.

Dilbun Vont: (pulling cittro back down the underpass) Black Opps move out. He lives that’s final.

Skylane -Coruscant-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont: (narration) it wouldn’t become clear to me til years later that those kriffin Lekku Loper investigators had been workin their calming techniques on me to some degree of success.

Cittro: (smashing her fists on the dashboard) I coulda killed him!

Gauer:  I’m not getting this either Vont.

Dilbun Vont: (driving) who paid us to snuff out that old tramp? Nobody. She wuz just wasting her rage on a ol’ cloud of gas that’ll scumb to his death outta ol age before anybody ever gets there change together to have somebody kill him. There was no profit in that scene back there.

Cittro: all these rules!

Gauer: good point. Were mercs kid, not random vandals or hooligans.

Cittro: so how in the five fire rings of Fornax em I supposed to ever equal the likes of you guys?

Dilbun Vont: (turning to stare; while driving) git a job….

Dilbun Vont: (narration) The ensuing glee in which cittro carried out five hit jobs on that night, drove home the fact that I myself had lost some of my edge in that Jedi cling, or maybe slaughtering eighteen twi’leks just takes something outta ya.

Jedi Conclave-Caamas-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

A serpentine Jedi holds a discussion with the Holograms of Ranik Solusar, Merr-Que Diuan, Ashoka Tano &Voolvif Monn.

Ranik Solusar: (via hologram) Master Del Gormo you must convince the residents of the conclave to either abandon that planet or prepare for the coming struggle all Jedi face. 

N’Kata Del Gormo: I can see my former pupils aggressiveness still plaques the order, the residents of this conclave as well as myself abstained from the Clone Wars as we will avoid the bloodshed of a rampage against this Sith Empire.

Ashoka Tano: (via hologram) but master the galaxy will be….

N’Kata Del Gormo: will go as it has for the past eons young one, believe me the light and the dark are but just passing eddies amongst the stars.  The sith no matter how strong they’ve become would never risk a galactic revolt against themselves once in power.  You remaining Jedi must cast off your negative energies and take solace in the light of the force; once within it you will find serenity. 

Ranik Solusar: (via hologram) I had assumed you the legendary Master Gormo, would take the place of
His pupil Master Yoda no questions asked. The order needs a new council, will you at least admit that much?

N’Kata Del Gormo: you know very little of my true nature nor do you understand my thoughts regarding the status of the Recent Jedi Order. Therefore I invite all four of you to my conclave, perhaps once within its walls I can explain the way of things best to the lot of you.

Imperial Star Destroyer Armada-en route to Caamas-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont and the black opps attempt to enter the bridge of Wilhuff Tarkin’s Star Destroyer as a group but are stopped by Clone Troopers.

Trooper: only commander vont is allowed on the bridge.

Dilbun Vont: keep an Eye on da kid Gauer. Too many trigger happy clones on this tub.

Cittro: I can handle clones!

Gauer: not at point blank range, trust me.

Vont approaches a group of Imperials being issued orders by the hologram of Emperor Palpatine; the hologram is surrounded by Sate Pestage and Armand Isard. 

Emperor Palpatine: in order to keep the holonet feeds from triple zero clear in this affair; my orders will be issued by my proxies: Sate Pestage and Armand Isard. That will be all.

The hologram vanishes. Without pause the holograms of the three other fleet commanders come to life on the bridge beside the Emperor’s proxies.

Armand Isard: Commanders Grammel, Zsinj, Harkov, are ordered to command their destroyers to begin the bombardment at the location of the Planetary shield generator. The installation must be razed before the full attack can begin.

Zsinj: and what of the generator? Who is being trusted with its destruction.

Armand Isard: Lord Vader has been given the honor of personally depositing the Black Opps at the location of the generator. Once there the team will be assisted by our Bothan allies.

Dilbun Vont: nobody sed a ding bout any kriffin bothans!

Tarkin: may I introduce Dilbun Vont; commander of the recently declassified Black Opps.

Zsinj: introductions aside, I share Commander Vont’s misgivings over this Bothan contingent. This mission is in of itself nothing but a grand testament to the ideals of the New Order. Therefore any alien assistance must be a trap…

Tractha: Commander Zsinj; the bothans are not on any mercy mission. This entire covert action was in fact designed by our Emperor and the Bothan heads of state.

Grammel: so we trust them enough to assist us in spear heading a covert operation; but not enough to attend this strategy meeting? let alone set foot aboard our vessels.

Sate Pestage: I assure you, I can speak for our Emperor. The bothans assistance in this case is substantial enough that we need not expect any bothan reprisal. In other words they stand to loose as many political allies as we should this mission  become public knowledge.

Dilbun Vont:  so in otha words da fur bags are the fall guyz should this mess ever hit the holonet.

Armand Isard: not exactly what I’d call a good description. But yes; I’ve prepared a document of damning proportions in regards to the bothan’s complicity in this operation. Should any of our hands be exposed in this, it might just surface.

Tarkin: well commanders I believe you know how to use your code cylinders, the rest is your hands. Cease transmission till the planetary bombardment is complete.

Harkov: Yes, Sir.

The holographic representations of the three imperial officers disappear. Tarkin,Pestage and Isard turn their attention towards Vont.

Armand Isard: not exactly one of Carida’s finest are we vont? Fact: the new order is skirted by xenophobic beliefs. Fact: the emperor aims through COMPNOR to make all none humans the minority of the galaxy.
Despite these goals; we still have to work alongside non-human vermin until we reach the majority. You will not pass a single word of ill will towards our Bothan comrades, is that understood?

Dilbun Vont: when the hell did I git diplomat status! 

Tarkin: We will not argue any of this Vont, this mission is already underway. Prepare your landing party we leave hyperspace within the hour.

Dilbun Vont: I can’t even get ahold of the kriffin emperor regardin dis?

Sate Pestage: your position is tenuous Vont; I wouldn’t press my luck any further than you already have.  The emperor has had many pawns such as yourself, you I’m afraid are the last of a dying. Excuse me:
 extinct breed.  The new order does not require brutes….

Suddenly the door to the bridge opens to reveal the dead bodies of the clone trooper guards whom Darth Vader steps over as followed by the black opps.

Darth Vader: spare us your prattle!

Dilbun Vont: saved by the sith…..

Jedi Conclave-Caamas-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Voolvif Monn: I personally speak for a great sum of Knights at this meeting; we have the power of the force with us Master Gormo, the Sith are but two. We many. They cannot survive the type of mission my fellow knights have outlined.

N’Kata Del Gormo: more violence, is that all you young Jedi can think of? The lot of you would send younglings against this raging storm upon the galaxy. The path of the Jedi is clear to a centered mind.

Ashoka Tano: if my master where here he’d…

A blast rocks the conclave and is shortly followed by a deafening klaxon scream. The young Jedi assembled ignite their light sabers and make for the balcony.  The anti- air craft  turret farm surrounding the conclave begins to take heavy damage as a series of fast moving seismic anomalies approach.

Ranik Solusar: well I’ll be; anybody see what I see?

Merr-Que Diuan: some sort of interference, other than that I don’t follow master solusar.

Ashoka Tano: I follow.

Voolvif Monn: those savages! Their barely even….

N’Kata Del Gormo:  I’ll not have bloodshed on these grounds, nor will the caamasi  allow any conflict.

Merr-Que Diuan: to sit idly by and allow your own demise is insanity master, we fight in knowledge or defense. Perhaps your own ideals regarding our order have eroded its actual purpose.

The four young Jedi depart the temple walls and hit the ground running towards the mysterious seismic activities. Tano and Monn charge blindly towards the rampaging impact craters as several more of the turrets are exploded. 

Ranik propels the debris towards the oncoming seismic abstraction; to reveal a feline like metallic walker bounding towards the conclave. The lurmen master springs into the air and latches onto the rampaging mech. Once atop the vehicle Merr-Que uses the force to lock the front legs in place thus causing it to flip over on the next movement as the Jedi is launched.

The mech explodes, as six more continue their cloaked rampage towards the conclave.   Solusar and Tano attempt to charge one of the oncoming cloaked mechs but are caught in a sudden cross fire, barely catching a round of blaster fire the Jedi deflect the bolts at random. The two quickly take notice of a platoon of cloaking shield equipped troops making their way towards them.

Ranik Solusar: Bothan cowards!

The Jedi use the force to short out the bothan saboteurs cloaking shields reveling their number. Several bothans are caught off guard and catch their own blaster bolts to the face.   The bothans close a circle around the four Jedi as a lone vessel attracts the attention of the remains of the anti-aircraft turret farm.

A craft resembling the sith infiltrator takes several hits and crash lands into the turret farm battle. From out
Of the dust storms a squad of clone troopers whom immediately open fire on the Jedi.

behind the clone contingent runs Darth Vader and the Black Opps; sensing the overbearing strength of the Sith Lord the Jedi knights begin a hastened retreat back to the conclave.

As they come within range of a force assisted leap; Lord Vader suddenly hurls himself saber first towards them. A fierce light saber battle ensues.

Darth Vader: (engaging four Jedi)  the Jedi are mine! The rest of you know your missions!

Merr-Que Diuan: You will not defile this paradise!

The lurmen master attempts to engage the dark lord in a acrobatic display of Ataru only to find himself impaled on the crimson blade. The black opps make their way into the conclave as followed by the bothan saboteurs. While the cloaked walkers continue to pick off the anti-aircraft turrets.

Imperial Palace-Coruscant-19 years before the battle of Yavin IV

The overly confident sith lord strides through his newly constructed palace halls as followed by his ominous red cloaked guards. Upon entering the throne room; both doors close locking the emperor in with his guards. Without a seconds delay the guards close in on their charge with stun pikes set at maximum lethality they make their attempt. Darth Sidious is faced with Clawdite changelings posing as his red guards.

The strikes are too close for comfort, at nearly every attempt to slaughter the clawdite assassins The Sith Lord is thwarted. At unnatural speeds for a non-force sensitive the assassins escape certain light saber impalement.  Sensing the advantage; the sith lord exerts his own force powered will over the entire building.

 Palpatine calls into action his recently acquired death commandos. without the aid of their secret force enhanced escort, the clawdites are quickly subdued by the agile Noghri assassins.

Jedi Conclave-Caamas-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont,Cittro,Gauer and J’mee Fett race up a stairway as followed by clone troopers and Bothan Saboteurs on their way to the massive planetary shield generator atop the conclave.

Dilbun Vont: havin trouble keeping up fur balls?

Bothan Saboteur:  we’d be to the top already if you didn’t keep your vat grown canon fodder between us!

Dilbun Vont: rather have yur stench downwind ovv me….

Before the bothan can retort a concussion missile rocks the stairwell, sending the clone platoon screaming to their death. The bothan squad activates their cloaking shields and riffle past the black ops.

Gauer: oh in the name of ffib! If your gonna march over us could you fur balls cloak the stench too?

Cittro: seriously.

Dilbun Vont: black opps, all in fit form? Fett? Sound ovv!

Dilbun slowly realizes J’mee’s flash training mask was lost in the blast, without a seconds notice the clone abomination reveals her true nature.

J’mee Fett: aww! I’ll kill you all!

Dilbun Vont: (taking fist to the head) fett its vont rememba! Commander ! somebody find da kriffin mask before I blast this wench!

Cittro: its gone vont!

Gauer: (leveling blaster)  tarkin’s gonna be pissed.

Before the master marksman can fire off a stun pulse at the deranged clone, he is a ensnared by a thin fibercord whip. Which causes him to loose balance and fall down the stairs.

Cittro goes to catch Gauer as she notices the appearance a rocket pack equipped mandalorian descending upon the blasted out stairwell from a hovering attack ship. Without a seconds hesitation the turncoat padawan draws and ignites her light saber. 

the two quickly discard their blasters and The mando engages cittro with arm mounted energy shields while still using bursts of his rocket pack to match the acrobatic skills of the turncoat padawan.

Boba Fett: (kickboxing)  this can end in tears of joy or tears of pain chica.

Cittro: (wildly smashing saber against energy shielded forearm)  that an invitation bucket head!

Boba Fett: (knockout move) sure thing if you got a face after this!

Fett smashes his helmet into cittro’s face knocking her out cold and kicks her in the stomach as he turns round while firing off a burst of his rocket pack to pounce on the brawling pair up the stairs.

Dilbun Vont: (sudden rage) wud’d you do to the kid!

Boba Fett: (flying headfirst into the brawl) nothing that she’ll remember.

The mandalorian separates the brawling pair quickly and then proceeds to set flame to the prototype of the long ago botched clone queen program to which disgusts young boba enough to accept a mission free of charge.

Vont is caught in a moment of terror seeing his comrade engulfed in flame and out of her mind; vont sets about finding a fire retardant in his belt when the mandalorian fires off his wrist rocket exploding the clone abomination. 

Fett goes to left off towards Slave 1; but is pummeled by a berserker rage filled Dilbun Vont.

Dilbun Vont: (raining blows down upon boba) you kriffin filthily animal! She was unarmed!

Boba Fett: (exchanging blows) that wench was a insult to my fathers legacy!

Dilbun Vont: (kicking fett in the jaw and knocking his helmet off) a kriffin clone!

Boba strikes Vont across his plastoid armored chest with a beskad while charging the older man. The bothan strike force succeeds in bringing down the shields as Vont is forced into battle with Boba Fett.

However trained the teenaged mando maybe, he is locked in a brutal fist to cuffs fight amidst the planetary bombardment.

Cittro is left with no choice but to use the force to pull Vont within the conclave.

Dilbun Vont: hey guud ding dat kriffin force was…

Cittro: shut up, we gotta get outta here!

As the shield generator begins to collapses around them, Fett rockets away to slave 1 and blasts into hyperspace.

Imperial Palace-Coruscant-19 years before the battle of Yavin IV

As the last changeling body hits the palace floor, Darth Sidious summons his would be murderer.

Emperor Palpatine: Reveal yourself!

Without a moments hesitation a thick vapor obscures the space between Sidious and the Death commandos, the vapor clears to reveal Rokur Gepta; the last known Sorcerer of Tund. Sidious stands with his hands crackling dark force lightening as Gepta assumes a battle stance aided by flaming fists. 

Rokur Gepta: neither of us will survive this battle sith lord….

Emperor Palpatine: a tund sorcerer, you’d be a valuable asset.

Rokur Gepta: you mistake my statement; there will be no survivor between us.  We are equally matched, a truce is required.

Emperor Palpatine: what do you want sorcerer?

Rokur Gepta: control over the Centrality. Yourself?

Emperor Palpatine: very petty of you;  I ask only for knowledge of the Tund practices…

Rokur Gepta: very well.

Emperor Palpatine: now who arranged this blitzkrieg?

Rokur Gepta: I believe you stated that you required only a brief understanding of Tund Practices. Unless I can assume you are reneging on our pact?

Emperor Palpatine: well played sorcerer.

The men agree with a force energy charged handshake as the Noghri Death Commandos look on.

Jedi Conclave-Caamas-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Turbo laser fire thunders down from orbit and strikes the lush landscape with impunity; massive clouds of destruction erupt all across the planet. Massive ground quakes shift the once lush topography into a barren waste land; the caamasi race is driven extinct by the suffocating cloud.  Amidst the firebombing Darth Vader and the former padawan of Anakin Skywalker; Ashoka Tano grapple as the bombardment sets off a violent planetary shift. As the situation draws to a close, tano attempts to draw out her former master.

Voolvif Monn: (choking to death) there is no deat….

Ashoka Tano: (deflecting saber strikes) master I can still feel you within that shell…let go of the hatred!

Darth Vader: (recklessly pounding his blade against the Jedi) your master is dead.

Ranik Solusar: (hammering vader with his blade) kill him tano!

Ashoka Tano: (trading blows) I can feel the good in him, he’s still skygu…

The young Jedi’s attempt is fruitless and attracts only the rage of a Lava hardened Sith Lord. Vader uses the force to rupture every organ in tanos body and force hurls her into a wall. At the site of the slaughter Master Gormo enters the fray.

Ranik Solusar: she was your padawan!

Darth Vader: her master is dead and now so is she!

Ranik Solusar: master! Together we can defeat the sith, draw your sword.

N’Kata Del Gormo: light sabers are of no use here Solusar, how little Yoda has taught you knights…

Vader arrogantly engages the unarmed Sage Master unknowing the awesome the skills of the mighty Jedi. with ease Gormo utilizes all aspects of energy based force combat against the sith lord; Vader is quickly reduced to a bloody cybernetic pulp. The master engulfs Vader in a cloud of the toxic vapor swelling the once breathable atmosphere, as he siphons air to a bubble around himself.

N’Kata Del Gormo: as you can see young one; a true Jedi does not require crude weapons to hack and slash away the venom of a sith lord.

Ranik Solusar: kill him now! What are you waiting for?

Suddenly the sage master begins to choke, Solusar notices that Vader has regained his composure.

N’Kata Del Gormo: (gasping) at least he understood my point…..

Ranik Solusar: no how!

Darth Vader: the living force Solusar, that’s what he’s getting at! True death is the absence of the force.

Ranik Solusar: (attempting to force push) how!

Darth Vader: you’ll never master it Solusar! Especially without Midi-chlorians!

Solusar and Gormo notice a cloud of smoke emanating from their bodies as vader approaches them, solusar flees in an effort to retain some of his force-sensitivity.

N’Kata Del Gormo: cowards! That one flees and you deprive an combatant equal footing.

The heavily wounded cybernetic bloody pulp of Darth Vader limps its way towards a LAAT as the planetary bombardment destroys the planet Caamas. Master Gormo suffocates without the aid of the force to rely upon. The serpentine master falls down dead as the LAAT lifts off into the atmosphere.

Imperial Star Destroyer Armada-Bombarding Caamas-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Tarkin, Tractha, Sate Pestage and Armand Isard confer with the holograms of Commanders Grammel, Zsinj, Harkov.

Harkov: I have four bogeys lacing their ways through the bombardment.

Sate Pestage: its safe to assume two of them are ours. Any id frequencies?

Harkov: I have a black opps call sign on one, the other three just jumped to hyperspace? Pursuit orders?

Tarkin: none. Continue as planned.

EmPal SuRecon Center-Coruscant-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Darth Vader awaits reconstruction on a slab as he is tormented further by the hologram of his dark master.

Emperor Palpatine: you’ve done well lord Vader; skywalker’s pupil vanquished and the legendary master Gormo bested.

Darth Vader: thank you my master.

Emperor Palpatine: oh don’t thank me; thank the black opps they got you off that planet.

Darth Vader: I’ll be sure to send my thoughts to vont as soon as this procedure is completed.

Emperor Palpatine: before lord vader. I insist.

A hologram of Dilbun Vont and the remnants of the black opps flares to life beside vader.

Dilbun Vont: coulda used you on the stairwell vader. Thanks a load.

Emperor Palpatine: I believe lord vader has something to say to the three of you.

Darth Vader: I bid you welcome for the ease of my escape from the surface of Caamas.

Gauer: I’d like to think you’d do the same for any of us.

Emperor Palpatine: that will be all. commence augmentation.

Sentinel-class landing craft en route to Gall-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont and Cittro sit across from one another in the troop deployment portion of the vessel.

Cittro: so what’s there to do out on this rock?

Dilbun Vont: well personally speakin I’m planning on gittin all my creds together and hittin the strum…umm I don’t know itsa common enclave from what I heard.

Cittro: strums..oh yeah I’m just a kid. Ok. There anything I can practice shooting at?

Dilbun Vont: theres some kinda cliff wampa in the smugglers canyon, that might be of some help fur target practice.  But I wuz thinking we’d take in a holovid or something?

Cittro: sure. Whats on?

Dilbun Vont: umm…how bout Varn, World of Water?


The Works-Coruscant-19 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont: (narration) Six cycles in a jedi cling ain't no deal i ever member signin on for..kriffing augie'd better have a whole warehouse of strums on some backwater planet lined up fur me afta this.

Master Brand scours over the remains of the crashed tibanna gas platform in-search of anything that might spell certain conviction and exposure of the lekku loper. He is joined by Ylenic It'kla and Ranik Solusar.

Ranik Solusar: i'm telling you brand, whatever wasn't destroyed in the initial blast surely couldn't have survived the separatist invasion.

Ylenic It'kla: has the public dismissal of jedi visions eroded your belief in their validity Desertwind?

Ranik Solusar: no, i just never have them anymore. it's the..

Empatajayos Brand: (lifting debris via the force) the darkness...we all feel it. i've heard the high council masters actually see it as a major shift in the current of the force.

Ylenic It'kla: although teams Aurek and Bacta failed in their mission to smoke out the other one. the Sith are off-balanced, with Dooku defeated this conflict will cease.

Empatajayos Brand: I hope that sentiment keeps Nejaa's family at ease as well as it does you Ylenic.

Ranik Solusar: It's a good thing were here because of Halcyon, cause if we where assigned to this mission. i know i'd have just walked out on you Brand!

Empatajayos Brand: why did the three of you go off like some hero squad thinking you where gonna defeat the sith and end the war! what you heard about Master Vos's successes in that area and thought the three of you where above the lure of the dark side?

Ylenic It'kla: it was the will of the council Master Brand. nothing more.

Empatajayos Brand: i am sorry. i just still find it hard to swallow that immediately after that investigation the three of you are sent to get killed by Dark Acolytes while on a hunt for the Sith. and Master Yoda was almost vanquished by those Bpfasshi Dark Jedi.

Ranik Solusar: yes it does sound rather convenient when grouped together like that. but i think you must detach yourself from this investigation of the lekku loper. you're seeing Conspiracy everywhere you look from what i hear.

Empatajayos Brand: in this war how can anyone not?

Ylenic It'kla: besides the force is with us no matter how thick the darkness may be Master Brand, we've seen the defeat of the entire force-sensitive command structure of the confederacy these past monthes. If their remains another Sith, the jedi will triumph.

Empatajayos Brand: last time i checked Asajj Ventress was still unaccounted for and Team Aurek had established a trail from here to the Ambassadorial Sector of Galactic City. conveniently as you would put it, right as the separatist invasion struck.

Ranik Solusar: The Living Force belief cannot be applied to all scenarios Brand. believe me, Master Halcyon was not destined to perish at the hands of Master Tyris. destiny is not a tangible commodity. 

Empatajayos Brand: perhaps you're right, its just i foresaw the three of us finding something in this wreckage. i cannot remember where it is..

Ylenic It'kla: perhaps i can help.

Empatajayos Brand: thanks, i really didn't know how to ask.

The Caamasi absorbs the entirety of Brand's vision. after wards he lifts his hand towards a pile of rubble and via the force levitates an axe to his hand.

Ranik Solusar: i'll be damned. looks its of gungan design?

Empatajayos Brand: never heard of them using vibro-axes?

Ylenic It'kla: there is much to be learned from this weapon.

Interrogation Chamber-Jedi Temple-Coruscant 19 BBY

Dilbun Vont: (narration) from my perspective the empire was born over da course of one night. one night of smoke and flame, blood and death, and of-course profit.

Empatajayos Brand: hope you had a pleasant sleep, cause i'm thinking your extended stay in our cells might be coming to an end.

Dilbun Vont: oh yeah, you don't say?

Empatajayos Brand: yes, we found something of yours.

Dilbun Vont: this bout the plugged toilet in your room?

Ranik Solusar: (entering room) any chance you've ever been to Naboo?

Dilbun Vont: hey its a full class reunion, so you saber jockeys bein dodging the bolts pretty good i tage id?

Empatajayos Brand: answer the question, spare us the details on what we found. end this debacle your tied up in the easy way. tell us who put you up to this and whom keeps your records hidden and why!

Dilbun Vont: i guess our six cycle honeymoon's over den?

Ranik Solusar: your a regular Jon Antilles down here pal, whoever you're covering for gave you up right as we moved on you. that platform was rigged to blow regardless of what you believe were trying to make you think. its all true. make this easy will you?

Empatajayos Brand: we found the vibro axe. and were gonna get everything off of it. every memory on the object. understand?

Dilbun Vont: if the holonet special i saw right befoe you saber jockeys caged my ass down here was right. aren't the courts not excepting you guy's fantasies as evidence anymore? so i wonder what the frak do i care bout some damn vibro axe?

Ylenic It'kla: (entering room) Memnii are being widely denounced by the galactic court, due in large part to a severe Bothan discrimination campaign against the Caamasi people. Psychometry however is still excepted as evidence due in large part to the fact that it can be utilized by non-force sensitives such as Kiffar. Understood Lekku Loper?

Dilbun Vont: knock yurselves out.

Tranquillity Spire of the Jedi Temple-Coruscant-19 years BBY

The Three Jedi Masters gather in the center of the deserted chamber around the Gungan Vibro-Axe.

Ranik Solusar: how much did you detect on here Ylenic?

Ylenic It'kla: a great deal, at-least all eighteen of the murders and something much older. it is my intention to view the oldest impression on this weapon, you may follow me if you wish.

Empatajayos Brand: i'm with you.

the three jedi levitate the axe off the floor, and place their hands upon the axe while focusing all of their force powers on Psychometry.

the images come suddenly, several spatters of Twi'lek blood, screams and anguish. the three men squirm at the sight of the Lekku Loper himself enjoying the crimes,they press on past the murders.

 suddenly years jump backwards, the axe is in the hands of a Gungan Ambassador on Naboo. the ambassador twirls the ornate axe before Senator Palpatine. the three jedi emerge from the memory.

Ylenic It'kla: as i said, a great deal. let us take all of this in before we act.

the three masters delve deeply into the memory and experience it entirely.

Lake Paonga-Naboo-44 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Kref Milas: Mesa musta thanks yousa for attending this meeting Senata.

Palpatine: ofcourse, now could you come to the point, gungan.

Kref Milas: mesa represent a faction that wishes to assist the naboo in the remova of King Veruna from Powa.

Palpatine: and why exactly do you think i would wish to assist your kind in such an act?

Kref Milas: mesa also hava dealins with Big Galgu. hesa says yousa not justa senata. yousa outsta to climb da ladda of the senate to da top.

Palpatine: so Galgu has a big mouth, i'll take that into consideration. i take it your attempting to blackmail me into removing the king of Naboo from power so you gungans can do what exactly?

Kref Milas: mysa faction isa smarta then that Palpotinesa.

Palpatine: i've heard enough.

suddenly a teenaged zabrak child bursts from the swamp waters with a double bladed lightsaber, before the child can reach the Gungan, an spray of gungan energy weapons stun the zabrak back down into the waters.

the enraged senator switches into his sith lord guise and ignites his own crimson bladed lightsaber to deflect the energy balls. they are too many. a shock net falls over the Sith Lord and temporally subdues him. Kref Milas twirls the ornate Vibro Axe.

Kref Milas: Mesa wasa gonna giva dis to a yousa as a sign of our committmentsa to each othersa successesa. togetha wesa couldsa teared downa the wallsa betweensa our sa peoples.

Palpatine: do you think i only relied upon a teenaged Zabrak and my own...

before the senator can finish his sentence a single blaster bolt flares to life between the Gungans eyes. as he falls dead, A teenaged Dilbun Vont is revealed as accompanied by the Fromm gang.

Sise Fromm: good thing we had an axe to grind with these guys as well Augie huh?

Palpatine: get me out of this net and don't call me Augie!

Sise Fromm: ofcourse senator, but you better thank young Dilbun here first, he's the one whom vapped that gungan bastage.

Palpatine: yes, i didn't even sense your intent nor your presence. quite interesting. thank you Dilbun...

Dilbun Vont: (picking up vibro-axe)Vont, Yur welcome ol'Augie!

Palpatine: (removing net) perhaps we'll work together again in the future Dilbun. now i understand your contributions are all in order Sise?

Sise Fromm: oh yeah, credits already lining the right pockets now that these stooges are outta da way.

without a sound, the young zabrak falls inline between his master and the Mafioso's.

Khameir Sarin: (punching vont in the stomach and taking the axe) inferior!

without a seconds hesitation, palpatine elbows the young zabrak to the head dropping the child to the muddy banks.

Palpatine: (kicking in the stomach) this person whom you label inferior, succeeded where you failed me! absorb your pain and get the ship warmed.

Khameir Sarin: (coughing up blood) yes, my master.

Sise Fromm: (shaking hands) my respect you have senator.

Palpatine: very good, until next time.

the obese Mafioso marches back towards his own ship, Young Dilbun goes to follow. but is stopped suddenly by the power of the force.

Palpatine: (presenting the ornate axe) well done young Vont, it really is a pity there is nothing of the force about you.

Dilbun Vont: if ya say so.

Palpatine: keep this. consider it a award for a job well done, don't sell it and if you do i'll find out.

Dilbun Vont: sure thing augie.

The Three Jedi Masters remove their hand from the Axe and look at one another astonished by what they've learned.

Ranik Solusar: what kinda name is augie?

Empatajayos Brand: (marching out of the room) name of a scum sucking war monger that's what it is.

Ylenic It'kla: (attempting to catch Brand) wait we cannot just run into all this Master Brand, we need to meditate on our next course of action.

Empatajayos Brand: the entire orders bein led nose first into this slaughter house of a war by a mafiso backed sith and you wanna meditate?

Ranik Solusar: i agree, this cannot wait. we can end this war tonight.
the chancellor is going up the same river as his buddy Dilbun Vont.

Ylenic It'kla: i sense a  great disturbance in the force, we mustn't be too hasty Masters, we need the approval of the high council before we go pointing the preverbal finger at the chancellor.

the three masters depart the spire in an elevator.

the elevator comes to a stop as the entire temple is rocked by a blast. the car opens up into the lobby of the temple.

the scene is dire, thousands of clone troopers hold the main entrance position. blaster fire blankets the air, numerous knights and padawans attempt to combat the sudden ambush.

Empatajayos Brand: this cannot be happening...

Ranik Solusar: (pulling brand back in the elevator) not this way.

the elevator closes and the three jedi calm themselves while pulling their saber hilts from their belts.

Ylenic It'kla: the darkness is upon us, we are undone.

Ranik Solusar: this cannot be the will of the force, the sith...palpatine must be preempting us.

Empatajayos Brand: we get Vont outta here, this axe and him is all we need to make our case. no matter how war torn the galaxy may be, they will not except the rule of the sith.

Ylenic It'kla: you speak as if they will have any choice in the matter. we the guardians of peace and justice are so easily subdued by this war machine, what chance will a revolution stand?

Ranik Solusar: calm yourselves, we three no matter what. must get out of this with vont and that axe.

Empatajayos Brand: alright we make for the cells and go up to the padawan barracks then to the hanger bay. from there we make for Corellia. Bel Iblis's declaration of Contemplanys Hermi should be in-place long enough for him to fortify the system against Sith incursion.

Ylenic It'kla: if any part that plan falls apart we split up, i'll go to Alderaan. Senator Organa will be vital to whatever revolution we may attempt.

Ranik Solusar: i'll take the padawans to the Nespis system, my families already there. its remote, the Sith wouldn't look there first.

The elevator opens onto the floor of the confinement level. the three jedi sprint to the cell of Vont with sabers drawn.

Dilbun Vont: what in the five Fire Rings of Fornax! are you slimo dweebs doin wit those dings on?

Ranik Solusar: (force pulling vont from the cell) it's way past check out time, get a move on!

Dilbun Vont: jus keep yur lazorsword outta my hind an i'll follow ya.

the small group makes its way from the cell area on foot within the corridors of the labyrinthine Temple. the sound of blasters and explosions begin to become a constant on their journey towards the higher levels.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) What I remember about the rise of the Empire is…how sudden it came down on them saber jockeys. all dat swagger and force malarky, all they could do was catch bolts in the face after awhile.

First Knowledge quarter-Jedi Temple-Coruscant-19 BBY

the sound of Sabers clash and crackling echo off the walls of the enormous structure. force enhanced techniques are pushed to their limits in the constant melee surrounding the continual march of Darth Vader and the traitorous 501st. blaster rounds are fired at point blank range as troopers close in upon their quarries, wave after wave of both side is decimated in turn. the stench of charred flesh and saber fused wounds weighs heavily upon the air as The three masters dragging Vont enter the Padawan barracks.

several young padawans stand with their backs to the walls as Vader orders the clones to open fire upon them, without thinking about their objectives. all three masters spring into action and slay the clone firing squad. the bodies fall and the padawans breath an air of relief. Darth Vader turns around to stare down the Masters.

Ranik Solusar: (LOCKING BLADES) stand down darksider!

Darth Vader: (parrying) you will feel the power of the dark side!

Ylenic It'kla: (joining the fray) is it Skywalker?

Empatajayos Brand: (attempting death blow) does it matter!

suddenly the sith lord springs into the air while using the force to hurl objects at It'kla, the caamasi takes all the abuse in stride and blocks the enraged darksider from slaying the petrified padawans. 

Darth Vader: (locking sabers with Solusar while punching Brand) Renounce the ways of the jedi and my master will welcome you!

Ranik Solusar: never beg an enemy to surrender while you supposedly hold the upper hand skywalker, it belies your fear!

Darth Vader: (recklessly attacking) do not talk down to me!

the upstart sith lord drives the battle to Solusar with beserker rage, the master returns motion but with a practiced ease. Vader's saber strikes the walls and the floor as the attack is prolonged, Solusar attempts to stab the sith lord, but misses as the dark side enhanced skills give Vader his one advantage.  seizing the moment the sith lord strikes solusar with his lightsaber in the back causing him to drop his lightsaber and fall to the ground in pain. Before the sith lord can deliver the death blow to Solusar, Brand force hurls a bit of debris at Vader.

Empatajayos Brand: (assuming battle stance) Ylenic, get yourself and Solusar out of here. i'll save those padawans.

Ylenic It'kla: (in a haze) wheres vont?

suddenly Brand is struck in the stomach with the gungan vibro-axe, dropping the master to the ground in severe pain. Dilbun kicks the lightsaber from the wounded masters hand and readies himself to behead him. as the infamous murderer goes to strike he notices the look in the eyes of a 15 year old human girl padawan. excitement. not wasting a moment Solusar force pushes vont away from Brand and fetches the master up my the hand and the three masters flee at force enhanced yet wounded speeds. The Sith Lord approaches the Lekku Loper.

Darth Vader: are you a maintenance engineer or a jedi sympathizer?

Dilbun Vont: (sudden recognition) the "hero wit no fear"?

Darth Vader: (pulling him by the neck) soon enough that will be true. but you will address me as Lord Vader! what is your business here quickly! i have a temple to conquer.

Dilbun Vont: (gagging) black opps, commander vont. fit fo duty...sir..lord.

Darth Vader: (dropping him) very good. i have some masters to finish off, i assume you can handle these children.

Dilbun Vont: (saluted with blood soaked axe) consida it done.

the sith lord speeds from the room down the same wall the masters sprinted down. Vont gets up and approaches the excited padawan girl. the other children back away as he kneels down in-front of the girl.

Dilbun Vont: why where you happy ta see onea yur own get an axe to da gut kid?

Cittro: they took me away from my family! and they aren't good!

Dilbun Vont: (chuckles) true nuff kid. tella wut, how bout you prove yur story to me?

Cittro: how?

Dilbun Vont: (presenting axe) this is the only weapon i gots on me right now. i want you ta kill these otha kids wit it. ya do dat, you git to be my partner and you might jus live.

the other padawans attempt to flee as the girl attacks them frantically, swinging madly in any motion the children fall before the deranged child.

in a stupor Vont watches in joy. but he catches her axe hand as she attempts to continue hacking up an already dead child.

Dilbun Vont: ya past the test kid, but remember dis, nobody pays ya to kill a person dats already dead. don't waste the rage.

Cittro: (giggling through fear tears) that's funny. but it shouldn't be.

Dilbun Vont: its all like dat, you got a nice swing. they had you on Bandomeer didn't day?

Cittro: how'd you know?

Dilbun Vont: long timeo ago kid, they had me there. try'd to work their calming crapola on me.

Master It'kla attempts to apply his force energies to healing both of his wounded comrades.

Ranik Solusar: if only we'd had better training in the healing arts Brand...

Empatajayos Brand: (holding hand over bleeding wound) atleast yours is from a lightsaber...still can't get how that bastard got the drop on me.

Ranik Solusar: there should be a bacta patch in one of those interceptors.

Ylenic It'kla: so i guess we should split up here?

Ranik Solusar: agreed, should victory come to our forces. may we meet again!

Empatajayos Brand: you two can flee if you wish, i'll cover your exit. i'm certain as a collective force, we can hold the temple and repel this incursion.

Ylenic It'kla: this isn't the Yinchorri Uprising, the temple is taken Brand.

Empatajayos Brand: nevertheless..

suddenly the room is entered by Lord Vader whom springs from the elevator and runs towards the Three Masters. they separate and lift off within Jedi Interceptors, the sith lord jumps behind the console of another interceptor.

The Jedi Masters take to the skies and split up, all three maintain radio silence. It'kla dives for cover and flies deep into the under levels of the galactic cityscape. Solusar races into the congested traffic lanes of the planet. Brand however makes for space and is pursued by the merciless Sith Lord.

Brand successfully docks with a hyperspace docking ring and blasts off towards Nar Shaddaa. Vader does the same and checks his instruments.

the interceptor blasts into lightspeed in pursuit.

Hall of Knighthood-Jedi Temple-Coruscant-19 BBY

The Clone troopers charge the retreating jedi whom are backed into the windowless chamber. dozens of knights fall to blaster fire as they cover the retreat.

once completely backed into the chamber of knighthood, The AT-PT fires an thermal detonator into the room and an explosion of utter gore rocks the temple as an generation of Jedi are blown to bits, the room falls silent.

 Dilbun Vont approaches the commander of the 501st accompanied by the turncoat padawan; Cittro.

Appo: why is that child still alive!

Dilbun Vont: relax yursef vatboy. dis kits wit me. consider her a member of the Black Opps, she says the awhole bunch of da council dweebs snuck out via the undercity.

Appo: we already know that Commander! lord Vader was subdued by Master Ti. troops are already on their trail.

Dilbun Vont: well i guess i can leave this slaughter under yur control then?

Appo: the child does not leave the temple sir!

Dilbun Vont: (brandishing axe) see this bucket head? that kit did work dirtier than you where trained to stomach wit it. my kinda work, she lives!

Appo: order 66 remains active sir. all jedi are to be slaughtered.

Dilbun Vont: howa bout command directive? Ordea 77 right? clandestine agent commands neutrality over an enemy of value. need somethin to wash that pill down wit Clone?

Appo: understood sir.

Dilbun and Cittro leave the clones to their work. they march down a staircase within the temple, smoke from the blasted out portions of the temple blanket the air.

Cittro: what's going to happen now?

Dilbun Vont: eveyding dat ol Augie promised, galaxy's gonna be the place people like me know it really iz. their ain't gonna be no ticker tape parade commencing it. more like a burning building on the holonet accompanied by some interesstin stories bout how it all came ta be.

Cittro: i meant whats going to happen to me.

Dilbun Vont: well i wuz thinkin we'd work togetha. i'd train ya up and then we'd be like partnas out on the rim. my skills and yur force skills..

Cittro: i refuse to use the force! that kriffing force ruined my life!

Dilbun Vont: ok, don't use the kriffing force.

Cittro: so when you say partners, are we talking business or pleasure?

Dilbun Vont: umm...thought you jedi where trained to like avoid that sorta stuff?

Cittro: i never wanted to be a jedi or know the force!

Dilbun Vont: well i dink ya need to grow up abit before anything like dat can even be considered aight?

Cittro: i'm not a child!

Dilbun Vont: i'll let ya know when yur not a child.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) dis iz why ol' augie had to create those reeducation schools for the Hands. how do you handle a dozen force-sensitive kits wit raging hormones? gotta give em some sort of control over dem selves! 

The Ganath Cloud-near Nar Shaddaa-19 Years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

A Starfighter battle rages out of control, two jedi craft engage one another at point blank ranges, salvos are exchanged and targets are re-engaged at lightening speeds. Brand's craft is heavily damaged, but he continues in his quest to vanquish the sith lord. but no matter how much effort the jedi puts towards his task, the sith lord's piloting skills are beyond superior.

without warning Vader tires of the struggle and uses the force to explode the fuel tank manifold of Brand's fighter, the explosion sends the dark lord spinning away from the cloud of radioactive gases and towards Nar Shaddaa. assuming victory Vader, reverses his course and reattaches to his hyperspace ring. the sith lord makes for coruscant.

Brand's vessel careens out of control and drifts into the Cloud whilst disintegrating. The Jedi Master is adrift in the cloud, his body a mangled burning mess which the coldness of space begins to freeze. the vacuums effect is interrupted by the cloud. a crude mixture of oxygen and Jedi stamina keep Brand alive. the master drifts towards a hidden planet, steam powered vessels take notice of the wreckage and move into rescue Brand.

On Coruscant, From the window of Vont's Apartment, Dilbun and Cittro share a toast of Whyren's Reserve while sitting atop his wooden table. the Jedi Temple burns in the distance.


Vos Gesal Street, Coruscant-20 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont: (Narration) apparently doing what you love can't get old, especially when yu're paid and encouraged to do it.

Cam Droids swarm as a lone caped figure descends upon the scene from a hovering aircar. media representatives are held back by Homeworld Security Command troopers.

Sloan Snickers: homeworld security continues to obscure the view of the most recent victim of the remorseless Lekku Loper, this being the seventeenth victim of the still at large murderer. a maniac whom it would appear both the Homeworld Security Command and the Jedi Order cannot bring to justice!

Trooper: move along! my orders are to be taken as if they came from the supreme chancellor himself!

the crowd clears and the Jedi enters the crime-scene. stretching out in the force, hoping to step backwards into the flow of events that led to this outcome. the images come suddenly; the spatter, the joy of the killer, his face and identity continue to be elusive. as if the perpetrator was so engrossed in the act that his whole identity was actually encumbered in the act of the murder.

puzzled the knight, scans the scene with his actual eyes. as expected, the Twi'lek woman is brutally wounded and beaten to death. no sign of a weapon having been used other than the vibroaxe used to hack off the lekku. and as usual, they where clearly removed as the victim died and are not to be found at the crime scene.

Empatojayos Brand:(removing hood) bring in the forensic droids. i must report to the council.

Trooper: (blocking path) the chancellor requires your presence immediately.

Empatojayos Brand: my report to the council is overdue and..

Trooper: according to the newly issued line of command, as long as the jedi are enlisted members of the Grand Army. a summons from the chancellor is infact a direct order to appear. Your car awaits sir.

Empatojayos Brand: how long before were ordered to adhere to a dress code and numbered identification?

Trooper: just following orders, general.

the LAAT speeds above regulated air traffic and descends upon the senate's front entrance. where a small media gathering surrounds the Chancellor, Mas Amedda and his red guards. The Laat lands beside the gathering, Master Brand approaches the podium.

Palpatine: and our Jedi Inspector arrives from the scene of the latest atrocity. what can you tell our galactic citizens Empata..ja master Brand?

Empatojayos Brand: (CLEARLY ANNOYED) as per customs chancellor. details of an ongoing investigation are classified. no matter how high the profile of the scenario. therefore i'm currently not at liberty to divulge any specific details regarding the newly discovered possible victim of the uh.."Lekku Loper".

Sloan Snickers: yet again the Jedi Order are stonewalling the public! first the infant snatching, then the confed's leader and now this! is it safe to assume this Lekku Loper is a member of the jedi order gone rogue and that is why your investigation continues to flounder Master Brand?

The crowd becomes unruly and the home-guard enters the scene. the air settles and the conference continues.

Empatajayos Brand: i'm not at liberty to speak for the entire order, but i am personally insulted by the slander you've uttered here today. as for this sham of a meeting, i will take no further questions from the media while these crimes continue to go unsolved. that will be all.

Brand attempts to leave the podium. but is blocked by red guards.

Palpatine: i'm sorry master Brand, but the republic requires answers and since you are unwilling to appraise them of the situation or bring this killer to justice then i must do what my authority begs of me.

Empatajayos Brand: and what might that be chancellor?

The crowd goes silent in anticipation, cam droids gather closely upon the unfolding scene.

Palpatine: as of this evening my office has been forced to pull five Jedi Generals from the fields of war to assist Master Brand in the Lekku Loper investigation. not only the war effort will suffer for Master Brand's failures, our ally Corellia will loan one of its finest CorSec agents to the investigation.

Sloan Snickers: why don't you just ship brand back to Murkhana! that battle ain't anywhere near done. or better yet send that tub of fodder to the jedi temple kitchens to clean up after the other baby snatchers!

The Homeguard troopers move in closer, the media falls silent.

Palpatine: please do not mistake my displeasure regarding this ongoing investigation to be a personal vendetta against Master Brand, he was the jedi whom secured the surrender of Domb Treetor at the Battle of Bassadro after all. the actions i've taken this night are merely my duties as supreme chancellor! if the investigatory team assembled this night cannot bring the lekku loper to justice, then I’m afraid the senate will be forced to further amend the constitution with which our grand republic was formed. and that my friends cannot happen, for if it continues the separatists win.

Palpatine exits the podium as followed by Master Brand, Mas Amedda takes the holo-mic to bring an official close to the gathering.

Sloan Snickers: who are these five jedi the chancellor's called from battle!

Mas Amedda: in an effort to deny the enemy a strategic advantage that information will be confidential as long as it can be. this gathering is at an end.

The Chancellor's Office-20 years before the battle of Yavin IV

Empatajayos Brand: i'm greatly offended by the way your office has put my neck out on the chopping block chancellor, in my opinion the public has been given all together too much information regarding this entire investigation.

Palpatine: would you approve of my dismantling the holonet and abolishing the right of free speech Master Brand?

Empatajayos Brand: not at all, but as the acting wartime chancellor it would appear you can do whatever you please.

Mas Amedda: this bickering is pointless Master Brand, the truth remains. your investigation has offered no results therefore inorder to maintain a semblance of law and order on this being the capitol of the Republic, we must tarnish your image for the time being.

Empatajayos Brand: i take it this is an order and would i be safe to assume this is classified information that unlike the results of my investigation will not be leaked to the holonet?

Palpatine: Master Brand, i was under the impression that Jedi where above the petty insecurities of ego?

before the outraged Jedi Inspector can retort a hologram of Master Yoda flares to life beside the small group.

Palpatine: Ah, Master Yoda. i assume word of my intervention in the Lekku Loper investigation has reached you.

Yoda: (via hologram) seconds ago it had. understanding am i of the situation, but agree with your handling of it i do not. at the feet of the jedi are you laying the blame for the investigations status.

Palpatine: a common misunderstanding grand master, I'm employing a tactic which i can assure you, many of our legal analysts have concurred always leads to incarceration of such serial killers.

Yoda: (via hologram) regardless of your analysts assumptions, with the council lies the task of assigning Jedi to investigations.

Mas Amedda: Master Yoda while you've been on assignment another military command structure revision was passed. as of two cycles ago the chancellor has the authority to reassign the tasks of Jedi forces serving in the Grand Army.

Palpatine: speaking of which how goes your operation in the Bpfasshi system?

Yoda: (via Hologram) Unable to locate the Bpfasshi Dark Jedi cabal have i been, in the thrall of terror the Sluis Sector remains sadly.

Empatajayos Brand: if we can get past our internal problems, we still have an investigation to conduct. may i get back to it or am i to be recycled back to the war effort as suggested by the almighty public consensus?

Yoda: (via hologram) of the jedi whom have you reassigned to this Chancellor?

Mas Amedda: the chancellor is not required to share executive level intelligence with...

Palpatine: now, now. are the jedi not our allies in this conflict majordomo?

Mas Amedda: i'm sorry if i have insulted you grand master.

Yoda: (via hologram) not governed by emotions am i.

Palpatine: Master Brand will remain with the task force as per my statement this evening, he will be joined by Koffi Arana,An'ya Kuro,Nejaa Halcyon,Ylenic It'kla,Ranik Solusar and Rostek Horn of CorSec. whom i'd might add Senator Bel Iblis did not willingly reassign.

Empatajayos Brand: (flabbergasted) if i recall correctly Ranik Solusar  was recently admonished for breaking several vows central to maintaining his commitment to the jedi order. and The Dark Woman doesn't work well with others.

An'ya Kuro: (materializing) one might also call into question the practices of Corellian Jedi?

Mas Amedda: (astonished) where'd she come from, security we've been breached!

suddenly the red guards spring from the shadows wielding their stun pikes. reacting flawlessly. both brand and kuro ignite their lightsabers and adapt a back to back fighting stance. the guards come within a breath of striking the deadly pair of Jedi.

Palpatine: (calmly) stand down.

An'ya Kuro: (looking at palpatine) never thought i'd miss the days of Valorum.

Empatajayos Brand: You really need to teach me how to do that phasing technique.

An'Ya Kuro: all it requires is complete humility before the Force.

Yoda: (via hologram) safe to assume it is that under control the situation on Ord Namurt remains Master Kuro?

An'Ya Kuro: there is no situation, master Yoda. my padawan elected to join the war effort.

Palpatine: ahh, another fine warrior for the republic. how proud you must be Master Kuro.

An'ya Kuro: first off chancellor, as a sign of selflessness i abandoned my name shortly after my trials. secondly my apprentice's talents lay along the path of the seer. plus Vors aren't exactly known for their combative abilities.

Palpatine: well rest assured Master..Jedi, that your apprentice can rely upon her loyal clone infantry where her weakness may intrude.

a brief silence falls over the overly opulent meeting room.

Yoda: (via hologram) In your hands it would appear the details of this investigation remain Master Brand. May the Force be with you.

the hologram of yoda dissipates.

Jedi Temple Briefing Room-Coruscant-20 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Koffi Arana: Excuse me if i come across as curt if i am unable to grasp the reasoning behind all of our involvement in this Investigation? my work on Tatooine was beginning to foster clues regarding the Sith Lord Master Kenobi vanquished during the battle of Naboo.

Ranik Solusar: interesting point Koffi, i myself was sifting through the remains of the black sun crime organization right before the news of my sons parentage happened to tear a new hole in space across the holonet.

Empatajayos Brand: been alot of that going around lately. 

An'ya Kuro: why you continue to serve the order is beyond me Ranik! a jedi whom flagrantly disregards the edicts of the order should be expelled!

Ranik Solusar: spare me dark woman i've already willingly submitted myself to the admonishment of the council and the disrespect of the entire order.

Nejaa Halcyon: the conclave on Corellia has already offered you and your family asylum Master Solusar.

Empatatjayos Brand: my fellow jedi, it is my opinion that we are assembled here for a single purpose. misdirection.

Ylenic It'kla: surely you cannot believe that these murders are not connected Master Brand.

An'ya Kuro: the media's attentiveness towards its every movement is unusual to say the least.

Koffi Arana: and you cannot detect any imprint of the killers identity at the crime scenes Master Brand?

Empatatjayos Brand: as stated in my reports Koffi.

Ylenic It'kla: one witness is all that we require for me to form a memnii.

Rostek Horn: (entering the room) we both know a string of memnii won't hold a bucket of water in a courthouse Ylenic.

Nejaa Halcyon: (shaking hands) well here we go again.

Rostek Horn: (shaking hands) same as always huh?

An'ya Kuro: Corellians.

Koffi Arana: (listening to comlink) better soak up your camaraderie  while you can guys, they just found another body.

Vos Gesal Hotel-Coruscant-20 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Sloan Snickers: the scene is a gloomy one, yet again citizens the media has been shut out of the loop of the habits,characteristics of the notorious Lekku Loper! two strikes in one rotation where will it strike next! we cannot tell you because we do not know thanks to the blundering actions of lead investigator: Emppa-tayjayoos Brand!

Trooper: this section is currently under the direct control of the home-guard cease broadcast of that communication immediately!

the media team disperse, a single LAAT sets down near the entrance to the seedy hotel. five jedi and one Corsec agent enter the building.

Rostek Horn: too bad i don't have central authority here, i smell ryll. ryll Nejaa can you believe that?

Nejaa Halcyon: you should take in some of the decay on the fringes, there are worse things going unnoticed within the shadow of this accursed war cast upon the galaxy.

Ylenic It'kla: press back the dark thoughts Spicewood, they dull your other senses.

Nejaa Halcyon: thanks, i almost let them get the better of me.

An'ya Kuro: since when are caamasi jedi as oblivious to central beliefs of the Jedi as corellian Jedi?

The investigation team enters a darkened pleasure den, where lies upon the floor a single corpse. all five Jedi stretch out in the force in-search of clues regarding the ghastly scene.  The act is brutal to relive, the scenes are vivid and fresh. Scenes of the previous murders investigation flash through the scene.

Empatajayos Brand: i was right across the street.

Rostek Horn: the forensic droids concur, this perpe's baiting us.

Koffi Arana: it is as you say Master Brand, other than the Twi'lek Strumpet there is no trace of any identity within this room.

Empatajayos Brand: sadly.

An'ya Kuro: there is another presence in this room.

The others look to the dark woman. suddenly, master kuro lifts the soiled mattress from the floor to reveal a quivering child.

Nejaa Halcyon: how did we not sense her?

An'ya Kuro: more importantly, it gives us our first fact regarding the lekku loper. whom ever it may be, it is not force-sensitive.

Ranik Solusar: frak me.

Ylenic It'kla: (taking the child aside) calm yourself young one.

Child: (speaking huttse)

Ylenic It'kla: i do not require your words, put yourself at ease while we share this terrible event.

Suddenly Master It'kla experiences the sounds and emotional impact of the murder. the child catches a glimpse of a shining medallion upon the perpetrators military issue beret. loud screams of agony in huttse conclude the experience.

Nejaa Halcyon: i sense a great dread within you Ylenic.

Ylenic It'kla: the child only caught a glimpse of the lekku loper's Beret, a military issue one i'd might add.

Empatajayos Brand: rep or sep?

Ylenic It'kla: it was Militarist grey and adorned with a gold medallion, it could only be of the Grand Army.

An'ya Kuro: what have we gotten ourselves pushed into here?

Rostek Horn: those berets are special issue, were talking a non-clone member of the GA here.

Ranik Solusar: so we can rule out some awol clone, thats great but what exactly are we looking at here?

Koffi Arana: this line of thought should not be discussed within a pleasure den.

Empatajayos Brand: lets get back to the temple, perhaps after we've shared the memnii...

Suddenly the corsec agent takes notice of a hovering holorazzi droid floating across the bar.

Rostek Horn: (pulling blaster) get outta here you parasite!

Nejaa Halcyon: great, now the loper knows whose on his trail.

Koffi Arana: (activating holonet) that's the least of our problems Nejaa.

Sloan Snickers: moments ago our affiliate network obtained footage of the current victim of the lekku loper and learned that the Jedi/Corsec Task force have identified the lekku loper as a awol member of the grand army. no word from the chancellor's office as of yet.

Grand Army Headquarters-Coruscant-20 Years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Mas Amedda: can we maintain a civil line of discussion Agent Horn!

Rostek Horn: excuse me majordomo, but my investigation has been completely compromised! and quite frankly i am willing to go with the media's misconstrued logic behind this entire chain of events.

Palpatine: are we really having this discussion again? how exactly would sending a operative on a killing spree benefit the grand army?

An'ya Kuro: first off, what benefits the grand army usually benefits the executive branches of power. secondly this entire sham of an investigation has kept the entire core glued to the holonet for the past two cycles, no unwanted wartime news has penetrated the infamous lekku loper rumor mill.

Palpatine: i will not take this line of accusation lightly Master Kuro.

Mas Amedda: might i suggest we redeploy her to the outer rim offensive your eminence. 

Rostek Horn: wow, why don't you just confirm the lines of political intrigue which keep corellia out of the war chancellor.

Palpatine: will you send in Tarkin on your way out, Majordomo.

the majordomo dismisses himself from the meeting and Wilhuff Tarkin enters the room.

Palpatine: now that the suspected holonet leak is out of ears-shout, we can begin again.

An'ya Kuro: if only i could sense a truthful deception, i'd might believe your change of mood.

Rostek Horn: (holding out micro-cam droid) sorry to disappoint you Master Kuro. but Amedda is the leak.

Tarkin: i thought there where six of you on the task force?

Rostek Horn: media report or actual intell?

Tarkin: the chancellor keeps my office apprised of all operations agent Horn.

An'ya Kuro: Masters Brand,Arana,Solusar,Halcyon and It'kla are working the only lead we posses.

Tarkin: ah yes, a Memnii. i've heard from this distorted image you've taken notice of a Militarist Beret.

Rostek Horn: that's the rumor.

Palpatine: why will you not share with us what you've found? can you not show us this memnii recording?

An'ya Kuro: (chuckles)

Rostek Horn: a memnii is not a recording, its an extremely vivid memory which can only be produced by members of the Caamasi race.

An'ya Kuro: luckily our master It'kla is a member of that race, he was able to form one by attempting to alleviate the pain of the most recent victim's progeny.

Palpatine: so your smoking blaster evidence is...a memory.

Tarkin: gleaned from the child of a strumpet's mind no less.

An'ya Kuro: clearly it holds enough water to ruffle your collective feathers Senator Tarkin.

Rostek Horn: i know it sounds preposterous, but it is a valid form of evidence and we require...

Tarkin: no wonder the prisons of Corellia bustle, if these memnii are considered a damning form of evidence.

An'ya Kuro: so the tarkin clan still holds a grudge against the Jedi.

Tarkin: not at all Master Jedi, due to your orders continued silence my cousin's role in the stark hyperspace war remains a shining achievement.

An'ya Kuro: Yoda and his point of view approach never ceases to amaze.

Palpatine: true enough, now what does your task force require to bring an end to this string of heinous acts?

Rostek Horn: access to the Grand Armies non-clone combatant list. specifically the Operation Leaders core of service.

Tarkin: we cannot compromise the identities of our clandestine operatives, especially to an agent of another galactic faction.

Rostek Horn: are you questioning the loyalty of Corellia!

Tarkin: yes and no. First off Senator Bel Iblis's declaration of Contemplanys Hermi keeps Corellia's allegiance up in the air. secondly..

An'ya Kuro: what's your position on clandestine members of the grand army seeing the list? 

Tranquillity Spire of the Jedi Temple-Coruscant-20 years BBY

The five jedi stand around the floating child in meditation.
within each of their minds, the jedi attempt to flow walk into the scene of the crime as evidenced by the poor twi'lek child. strained the jedi let the tranquilized child drift back to the floor.

Ranik Solusar: those blasted Aing-Tii need to share the greater details of this skill with us.

Koffi Arana: i understand our situation requires us to use it, but i still feel as if it skirts the dark side in some manner.

Ylenic It'kla: the child can only take so much more before we must submit him to correctional custody.

Empatajayos Brand: agreed, after this last attempt we hit the streets.

Nejaa Halcyon: can you handle much more of this yourself Ylenic?

Ylenic It'kla: force willing, Spicewood. force willing.

The five jedi stretch again and attempt to flow walk into the realm of the memnii, the sounds of the poor strumpet blare into their minds, her anguish during the brutal beating. the crashing of the room above the bed rocks their minds. suddenly Master solusar breaches the confine of the Memnii and proceeds to peer into the dim room. the twi'lek's blood begins to spatter the walls, Ranik instinctively follows the spatter to the wall.

Master Brand breaches the Memnii as well, upon his emergence into the scene he gets a full glimpse at the perpetrators rage filled face.

Empatajayos Brand: (flow-walking through Memnii) Ranik look at him!

Ranik Solusar: (flow-walking through Memnii) i know him,

Suddenly the flow walk is violently broken, the four fall backwards, Nejaa catches the child mid-air. Solusar squirms on the floor in shock.

Koffi Arana: you saw him?

Ylenic It'kla: indeed they did, but we must submit the child to the medics.

Nejaa Halcyon: one can only hope a reliable Jedi healer will rid the child of its fear.

Empatajayos Brand: (attempting to wake Solusar) Ranik, calm yourself. where do you know him from?

Ranik Solusar: during my years in the AgriCorps on Bandomeer, he was a derelict child.

Nejaa Halcyon: was he a masterless padawan?

Ranik Solusar: no, it was said he murdered two whole households on Naos III and burned the houses to hide the truth of the matter....

Koffi Arana: Do you remember his name?

Ranik Solusar: The non-force sensitive farmers called him Di Vont.

Grand Army Headquarters-19 years before the battle of Yavin IV

Tarkin: out of the question! i cannot condone the broadcasting of one of the GA's operatives identity over the holonet.

Rostek Horn: so you protect a murderer and allow this chain of murders to continue!

Tarkin: suspected murderer, the only evidence your task force has as of this moment is a whole lot of jedi fantasy.

Empatajayos Brand: surely you do not intend to go along with this?

Palpatine: my hands are tied master Jedi, Senator Tarkin's opinion on this matter is sadly correct. the populace is already in an uproar over the controversy surrounding this investigation. we cannot add fuel to this raging fire.

Ranik Solusar: so the blood of whom ever this psychopath kills next lies upon your door Chancellor.

Koffi Arana: if we could air the suspects identity, we could save the lives of his next victims, if not secure his confinement.

An'ya Kuro: (materializing into wall) i've had enough of this deterrent, i will find this scum before dawn.

Nejaa Halcyon: for the first time, she and i are in total agreement.

Vos Gesal Street, Coruscant-20 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont: (narration) it's really amazin how much fun lekku can be, ya take em off a strum an still thay appear attractive. even ina bloody pile dhey entice yea.

Sloan Snickers: in a stunningly revolting turn of events the lekku loper has sent the populace a message. amidst the spiraling out of control controversy surrounding the investigation, the infamous serial killer has managed to turn the spotlight back upon itself. for the first time in perhaps eons the once bustling coco district is in a state of utter shock at the ghastly site that can be seen behind me!

behind the reporter glides a hover platform with a line of bashed up waving protocol droids smeared in Twi'lek blood and adorned in the severed Lekku collected from each of the Eighteen victims. the crowd lines the walls of the streets in disgust and shock.

Sloan Snickers: so the main question crossing the mind of this reporter is this: where in the midst this public display of disdain towards Galactic law is the Jedi/CorSec task force to be found?

LAAT-hovering above the Lekku Parade

Ylenic It'kla: beastly.

Ranik Solusar: i count only eighteen, so he hasn't struck again.

Koffi Arana: one can hope, have you ever seen anything like this?

Empatajayos Brand: Master Yaddle spoke of the atrocities of Tulak on rare occasion, i can assure you this is along those lines.

Rostek Horn: the forensic droids have good news, the heat signature of the platform is leaving a trail.

Koffi Arana: can it be followed?

Rostek Horn: already on our way.

The LAAT soars into the skies as the home-guard attempts to contain the Lekku Parade. the vessel goes towards the works area of the galactic city scape. the ion trial leads them to an abandoned Tibanna gas platform.

Dilbun Vont: (narration) why does gittin pinched feel like life day?

The Six Jedi surround the seated figure of Dilbun Vont with lightsabers drawn. Rostek Horn approaches the murderer with his blaster pistol leveled on the grinning man. 

Empatajayos Brand: in the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic, you're under arrest.

Dilbun Vont: (chuckles)

Rostek Horn: what's so kriffing funny about any of this creep!

Koffi Arana: Is this really the guy we've been unable to catch? i mean come on look at him. he's fringe garbage!

An'ya Kuro: now, now Master Arana remember what yoda taught us as younglings. control, you must learn control. no matter how chunky a pile of fodder may be, is it not the will of the force for it to be so?

Dilbun Vont: (chuckles) guuud one.

Nejaa Halcyon: do you deny your actions? or does my companion need to experience your rampage first hand?

Dilbun Vont: come on over here Caamasi, hope you brought a change of shorts.

Ylenic It'kla: (extending a hand towards vont) emotion, yet peace....ignorance, yet peace...passion, yet serenity...Chaos....yet..

suddenly It'kla is hit with a blast of pure madness, the impulsive memories are a cluster of agony. both induced upon others and self inflicted upon Vont. Years of suffering encumber the peace loving caamasi.

Ylenic It'kla: (withdrawing) a stable memnii cannot be formed from this...such madness his mind is not normal.

Empatajayos Brand: is he the lekku loper or not!

Ylenic It'kla: too much reckless hate within him, certainty cannot be gleaned from his mind.

Rostek Horn: well i highly doubt this karking ferglutz is a good house keeper, gotta be some hard evidence on him or in this dump.

Dilbun Vont: (chuckles)

Ranik Solusar: what's so funny...Di?

in a sudden urge of clarity Vont recalls his years on Bandomeer in the agricorps and the harsh treatment of the Failed Padawans. taking charge of the situation, vont releases his hold of a detonator. explosions begin to rock the refinery. Agent Horn knocks Vont over the head with the but of his Blaster pistol, Halcyon and Horn drag the murderer out of the exploding platform as the other jedi cover their exit.

the LAAT lifts off as the Refinery plummets into a portion of the works exploding as it does so. The Jedi look on as the blast is tended to by the emergency firespeeders.

An'ya Kuro: there is a greater evil at work here boys, all of this has had a purpose to which we are blind.

Koffi Arana: i feel it also. every aspect of this was arranged, there is no way a mentally unstable being could have eluded us while carrying on this high profile string of murders..its just not possible!

Ranik Solusar: calm yourself Koffi. we got the guy, that's all that matters now.

Nejaa Halcyon: how exactly do you figure that one Solusar?

Rostek Horn: yeah the top brass essentially told us their not gonna except a memnii as evidence and all the evidence of this creeps involvement just went up in flames and was hover carted down Vos gesal street.

Empatajayos Brand: so its our word against...his.

the group assembled looks down at the knocked out form of Dilbun Vont.

Sith Containment Cells-Jedi Temple-Coruscant-20 BBY

Yoda: (via hologram) most disturbing is your account of these matters Master Brand, most disturbing.

Empatajayos Brand: Until you or another member of the high council returns it appears the chancellor's office will not allow the Judicial Department to hear of Master It'kla's Memnii nor has the progeny of the last victim been relocated since we turned him over to the correctional authority.

Yoda: (via hologram) what of the task force? where have they gone?

Empatatjayos Brand: shortly after we apprehended The Lekku Lop... Di Vont, they where reassigned and Agent Horn was escorted back to Corellian space.

Yoda: (via hologram) what of the majordomo's information leaking? and what of Master Solusar's memories regarding this vont's time on Bandomeer?

Empatajayos Brand: much like the Chancellor's stonewalling and the disappearance. nothing master, the records of the vont family murder on Naos III where apparently lost thirteen years ago and the correctional authority has nothing either. aside from the fact that we've got this guy in the cell across from me, we've got nothing on him.

Yoda: (via hologram) and powerless against the will of a war time chancellor we remain, um a clandestine agent this one must be.

Empatajayos Brand: it would also appear the public has already forgotten about the investigation, it's as if it all never happened master. the whole mess, all the finger pointing and all that disgrace for nothing.

Yoda: (via hologram) in vain your drag through the mud has not been, Master Brand. aware are we of the lengths which our enemies will sink to discredit us we are. redeployed the others have been you say? 

Empatajayos Brand: yes master.

Yoda: (via hologram) why aren't you redeployed as well Master Brand? um

Empatajayos Brand: in light of the chancellors recent command restructuring amendment. i've withdrawn myself from the Grand army, master. my duties lie at the behest of the council, not a war mongering dianoga like Palpatine.

Yoda: (via hologram) um, calm yourself Master Brand. agree with half of your thoughts i do, and wish i where able to join your stance on this position. as Grand Master however i cannot.

Empatajayos Brand: i agree, another schism cannot be allowed. but i will no longer serve in the war effort, send me to bandomeer or expel me from the order if you please.

Yoda: (via hologram) continue with this lekku loper interrogation you must Master Brand. perhaps within his mind lies the keys to unlock the mystery of the Sith.

Empatajayos Brand: yes master. May the force be with you.

the hologram of yoda vanishes.

Dilbun Vont: what the hell iz that lil green frakker? i neva sin a ding lika that in my life?

Empatajayos Brand: he's the grand master of the Jedi Order and that's all you need to know for right now.

Dilbun Vont: (chuckles) wow, so ya guys take in'all pathetic forms ov life huh? 

Empatajayos Brand: the jedi respect all forms of life, including evil forms. that i can assure you is the only reason why your still alive...Vont is it?

Dilbun Vont: nice try, i'll stick with mr. innocent till released from illegal confinement.

Empatajayos Brand: i'll get to the point then, my fellow investigators and i no longer believe that you acted alone. one as clearly unhinged as yourself could not have maintained this act all alone. your rampage was staged and clearly allowed to go on as long as it did. and your capture was a set up to kill all of us on that refinery.

Dilbun Vont: dat thing blew case i blew it up pal, and jus so ya know before you start chargin me, there ain't no laws aganist taking out derelict platforms in the works.

Empatajayos Brand: really is that why the forensic droids found another set of Detonite on that tub?

Dilbun Vont: wow, you must really be the brains behind that gaggle of lazorsword jockeys they sent afta this loper guy. so i'm supposeda to git all pissy and yell: "that slimeo tryd to kill me after all this junk i did" and so and so fourth.

Empatajayos Brand: such an interesting form of insanity. both out of control and yet...

Dilbun Vont: enjoyein mysef.

Unknown battlefield-20 BBY

Darth Tyranus: all the great Jedi investigators, discredited and redeployed far from your trail. simply amazing my master.

Darth Sidious: (via hologram) Yes...yes.

Darth Tyranus: the only matter that troubles me with this plan, is how do you intend to dispose of Vont. now that he is in Jedi custody, surely he can be of no further use to you?

Darth Sidious: (via hologram) the jedi know not what they've allowed into their midst my apprentice. that is all you need to know, i assume all is in readiness on Susevfi?

Darth Tyranus: yes my master, Tyris and his Jensaarai acolytes await It'kla,Solusar and Halcyon. they will be no match for them.

Darth Sidious: (via hologram)  i once made an assumption along those same lines my friend.

Darth Tyranus: what of the public outcry against both the offices of the chancellor and the jedi order? surely the legend of the lekku loper will ignite again to give us room to operate within?

Darth Sidious: (via hologram) you still have much to learn my apprentice, you allow jedi weaknesses to govern your thoughts regarding other sentient lives. this entire chain of events has only served to bring the jedi under tighter control while discrediting their investigatory methods and it has also imposed a greater authority upon the home guard.

Darth Tyranus: than you wish to reign in the garbage in the lower sectors of the capitol my lord? is there a threat in that area?

Darth Sidious: (via hologram) forget it Tyrannus, it's only CoCo Town.

Dilbun Vont will return


Dilbun: (narration) you know with all that noise and light you'd figure these force enhanced diaper bags wouldn't be such a problem. historically speaking. i mean their weapon of choice leaves em without the element of surprise. like gee theres something robed glowing and humming in the corner what could that be?

Wayland-20 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Nikkos Tyris:(sparring with Tol Skorr) as i've demonstrated the weakness is not in your style, it is your cowardice towards the dark side.

Tol Skorr:(attempting death blow)you ferglutz!

Asajj Ventress:(locking blades with Tyris) there will be no room for your Jensaarai when the sith hold dominion over this galaxy!

Nikkos Tyris:(deflecting death blow via force leviatate) your logic in such matters isn't of importance!

before the three can kill one another, Sora Bulq separates them via the force.

Sora Bulq: your anger towards one another will be a beacon to our prey! separate! go on your patrols and hide yourselves in the predatory urges of this jungle.

Asajj Ventress: (disengaging sabers) the count does not abide my mistreatment bulq! you will regret this.

Sora Bulq: one trained by the jedi never holds such physical distractions above the will of the force. run along girl.

Ventress flees into the canopy, while Tyris and Skorr stand maintaining defensive positions against one another.

Sora Bulq: i will not repeat an order. disengage!

Skorr force leaps into the jungle after Ventress. Tyris turns his saber towards Bulq.

Nikkos Tyris: Come now saber Master are you willing to test yourself against my style?

Sora Bulq: i no longer hold that title, but it does not mean my blade would falter before the likes of Cin Drallig or yourself. disengage tyris, the masters require your services in the future, or the so force tells me.

Dilbun: (narration) much like their count, these kath hounds still have that jedi stiffness about them. not at all like ol' augie or even ventress. but even with my utter disregard for them, i fail to see my purpose in this mission? why em i leading them. they supposedly got themselves tuned into that kriffing force! shouldn't it be essential to killing one of their kind?   

Nikkos Tyris: amusing how much self doubt clouds his mind. your soup would be spicy Vont, it really is too bad your of importance.

Dilbun: (narration) nosey brain sucking scum!

Dilbun Vont: good thing ol' augie's got the say so over you dweebs. must confess i've been winning every bet i place on the outcome of this war's engagements, and where the kriff has dooku been stowing your suck face tyris?

Nikkos Tyris: Force Sensitive Anzati are in short supply, there really is no better way to imprint our organic operatives.

Phutt Nuum: in other words you bein crawling all over solider laps for the duration of the war eh? they at-least tip you for your dance?

Nikkos Tyris:(force choking Nuum) may i remind you of which side you serve in this war Death Watchmen. yours is a life i may end at anytime.

Dilbun Vont: call off yur Akk dog Bulq, Nuum's part of my team!

Sora Bulq: your role as team leader is noted Vont, but we have no standing orders to leave anyone but yourself unharmed.

Dilbun Vont: Black Opps-i envoke Order 23. exterminate confederate agents.

Trachta, Gauer and J'mee Fett pull their blasters and open fire upon Tyris and Bulq. the Dark Jedi deflect the energy bolts and release Phutt Nuum whom collapses into the foilage.

Dilbun Vont: Black Opps-stand down. Nuum git your hid in line, I'm not ordering the execution of these force dweebs for yer worthless life got it?

Sora Bulq: let us get within range of your pitiful band next time vont, bacta won't be any help. i promise it.

Gauer: either way your ass would be the first down. kinda hard to be so cocky with a vibroblade up your...

Dilbun Vont: Black Opps- patrol the perm, Gauer git me holos of Doneeta bathing down by the lake on the double. Tractha keep outta the rain don't need ya shorting out on us in the thick of it eh? Fett yer wit me.

Nikkos Tyris: what about your mando, you giving him to us after that little show of force?

Phutt Nuum:(choking)

Tractha: I'll keep an eye on him commander.

the group divides, Sora Bulq and Vont take up a monitoring position overlooking the incomplete Mt. Tantis storehouse.

Sora Bulq: it's good you seek to relieve your tensions with holos of the twi'lek. your mind must be in its usual state for this mission.

Dilbun Vont: never had anybody encourage me to do that befere, eh. so why the hell em i even here let alone leading this tactic-less mission? what is the kriffing plan, i'm the commander and nobodies seen fit to advise me of tha damn thing?

Sora Bulq: just clear your head vont, kill something. make time with Sha'ala, whatever it takes. all i can advise you to do is be yourself.

Dilbun Vont: any hints given to you Fett?

J'mee Fett: tactically speaking this mission shouldn't be of any concern to you Commander. we are five special units and five Confederate Lieutenants strong with battle divisions in play all around the system. the intel provided upon our target suggests one Dark Jedi with a Slicer is all we face. 

Sora Bulq: all true enough clone, but your flash-trained mind fails to grasp the gravity of our situation. our masters can blanket this area with battles all they wish, should we fail to destroy Fai'rel here and he escapes with proof of the truth. we face a revolution led by the Jedi.

Dilbun Vont: don't give me that bull, the sith are playing both sides of this game, what the hell would change if the populace found out? and the jedi. come on who they gonna led against two war machines?

Sora Bulq: you assume the Sith Lords could maintain their forces after exposure. this war is built upon broken promises, false claims and of-course  those whom believe in its underlying purpose; keeping this one united galaxy.

Dilbun Vont: which it never bein! never will be and quite frankly in all sanity should never be.

Sora Bulq: (exiting the ridge)so says the war Profiteer.

Dilbun: (narration) five of these bastards, Dooku's elite. and a group assembled by tarkin as suggested by ol'augie. the Dark Jedi being here i understand, but my black opps? were the covert berserker squad? assassins of the assassins! all stranded on this jungle hell hole awaiting that Bpfhashi clown.

Acclamator I-class assault ship: Bloodsport
approaching orbit of Wayland

Kiev Plau: as i've said before we cannot interfere with the natural progression of sentient affairs.

Fai'rel: why can't your order see the purpose in my actions! the sith will rule and they must be stopped.

Kiev Plau: exposure will not put an end to the violence that shrouds this galaxy. you will find yourself engaging your enemies in blood soaked worlds for the remainder of your existence.

Fai'rel: the twelve of you united with the jedi order could eliminate the sith yet you seek to continue your orders secrecy! and you decry my efforts to expose them.

Kiev Plau: we are connected in life via the force, its entire spectrum. we cannot do battle with those completely devoted to either of its halves and survive. our work is too important to involve ourselves with this ancient feud between your orders.

Fai'rel: then you consign my mission to failure and you condone the coming darkness!

Kiev Plau: our invitation still stands, despite your allegiance with the dark side. if you could but look past these petty sentient troubles and join us in maintaining this stellar body.

Fai'rel: i utilize the dark side in my efforts against the sith as all the jedi should! nevertheless i refuse, you'd might as well go if you will not aid me in my coming struggle.

Kiev Plau: (fading away) i was never here.

Fai'rel: such power..wasted.

frustrated the dark jedi exits his chamber and enters the deserted bridge of the star destroyer. at the main com station sits Kligson. whom quickly approaches Fai'rel noticing his entrance.

Kligson: i gotta tell you, this force stuff along with my slicing skills could find a guy running the galaxy.

Fai'rel: it already has.

Kligson: oh yeah, umm. i've got a LAAT prepped in the docking bay if you're ready to go down to the surface.

Fai'rel: very good, do you have this ship slaved to your suit? should we require it's further assistance?

Kligson: as you requested. now once you've got what you want, i can keep the suit right?

Fai'rel: it is your design, is it not? plus the funds you siphoned to construct it never really existed so even by jedi logic it is yours to do with as you please.

Kligson: and i'll be free to go my own way after this right?

Fai'rel: are you implying our partnership has been less than beneficial for you?   

Kligson: its not that sir. i just wanna get away from all of this mess, all these people. slicing my way is great fun and all but being continually around beings unable to see a simple number scam coming down on them has taken its toll upon me.

Fai'rel: why is it everyone i require aid from seeks to remove themselves from sentient concerns?

Wayland- twenty clicks from Mt. Tantiss

Dilbun Vont: honest Sha'ala. i'll never go near another Force-Sensitive strum.

Sha'ala Doneeta: (force choking) i'm not a strum!

Dilbun Vont: (choking mid-air) coulda fooled ma twenty minutes agooo....

Sha'ala Doneeta: (force choking) that's it slime-ball you're dead.

in a flash of motion J'mee Fett bursts onto the scene and subdues the force sensitive twi'lek with a upper cut to the jaw as applied while pulling back her lekku. the genetically pampered woman goes down without calling upon her Force enhanced skills.

Dilbun Vont: wow, you must really like me.

J'mee Fett: do not confuse loyalty to the command structure with your physical urges commander.

Dilbun Vont: (exiting tent) sounds like you nevea had a brush wit yur own urges condolences.

Trachta: the dark jedi say they have sensed the prescience of Fai'rel aboard a venator that just entered orbit.

Dilbun Vont: a Acclamator! man that boy can slice his way anywhere!

Sha'ala Doneeta: It is more likely that Fai'rel subdued the mental capacity of the ships crew for the duration of their journey.

Dilbun Vont: imagine what he coulda accomplished if he'd had you tagging along wit him.

Sha'ala Doneeta: you son of a...

 Sora Bulq,Asajj Ventress,Nikkos Tyris and Tol Skorr descend upon the scene from the treetops.

Asajj Ventress: get your gear Doneeta! the currents of the force are clearing.

Dilbun Vont: what brings the saber jockeys out of their trees?

Sora Bulq: It is time. but things are happening too simply, Fai'rel senses us. but his ship comes this way. without a concern.

Dilbun Vont: wow so this is the extent of the all seeing eye of the force, i'm startin to git why the sith put me in charge of this gaggle of kriffing...

suddenly turbolaser blasts erupt all along the ridge. and a massive shadow covers the ensuing firestorm. the laat soars above the ridge carrying the openly gloating Fai'rel. the Dark Jedi attempt to board the Laat as more turbolaser blasts rattle the ridge. the group takes notice of the Acclamator I-class  Star Destroyer descending upon the ridge nose first.

Sora Bulq: (using the force) get your group outta here dilbun! get to the storehouse we'll handle this!

Dilbun Vont: good enough for me! black opps move out!

the dark jedi join in a battle meld to start pushing back the turbolaser blasts at the star destroyer while pushing it away from themselves. stray blasts continue to blanket the jungle as the dark jedi struggle to bring down the destroyer.

Asajj Ventress and Nikkos Tyris spring from the ground thus leaving the battle meld's objective and attempt to inflict physical damage upon the ship with their lightsabers.

the two run along hull of the mighty vessel pulling apart large portions of the vessel via the force and hurling them at the bridge.

large chunks connect and destroy the command tower, the turbolasers fall silent. Sora Bulq, Tol Skorr and Sha'ala Doneeta release their hold upon the vessel and propel themselves via the force from the ridge as the mighty destroyer smashes nose first into the ground exploding.

the Dark Jedi come to ground within paces of the Storehouse, utterly exhausted from the effort they fall to their knees to regain their energy.

Asajj Ventress: what are we doing! Sith do not require rest we serve the dark side!

Sora Bulq: (force choking and levitating) we are not sith! we serve the dark lords. if they chose to elevate us by doing away with one another so be it, that is the way of it girl! so quit mistaking your pathetic skills and our status in the grand scheme of things.

Tol Skorr: (attempting to stand) put her down Bulq! we have the mission to complete...vont's as good as dead!

Asajj Ventress: (hurling a rock at Bulq) do not defend me Skorr! i can take care of myself!

Sora Bulq collapses. Nikkos Tyris ignites his lightsaber and guards the passed out Dark Jedi.

Nikkos Tyris: what is this! infighting while the mission rests within the hands of a insane murderer and his crew of republic scum. Doneeta revive bulq!

Sha'ala Doneeta: (force healing bulq) it's a deep crack, this will take long.

Asajj Ventress: leave him for dead! the weak shall not hold back the will of the mighty!

Ventress attempts to storm into the storehouse, but is almost cleaved in half by the blade of Nikkos Tyris. Ventress ignites her blades and engages Tyris briefly.

Tol Skorr: we don't have time for this!

Nikkos Tyris: agreed, ventress and Doneeta come with me. Skorr heal Sora's injuries and join us inside!

Asajj Ventress: (force leaping) I'm leading this charge Jensaarai!

the three dark jedi advance into the mighty structure of Mr. Tantiss.

Fai'rel and Kligson enter the citadel of Mt. Tantiss, upon entering they are met by a shadowy figure.

Joruus C'baoth: who dares disturb my domain? who dares to trespass the storehouse of Mt Tantiss!

Fai'rel: master C'baoth, it is your loyal apprentice returned to your service after having strayed from the light for so long. come let us expose the shame of this war, let us triumph over the Sith.

Guardian of Mt. Tantiss: We have no Apprentice!

the dark jedi is bombarded by streams of dark force lightening, reacting quickly Fai'rel ignites his lightsaber and unleashes a wave at C'baoth. The Bpfasshi turns around to deflect another salvo coming from the shadows. the flickers reveal another C'baoth. in this moment Fai'rel understands the truth of the matter. his master never returned from the Outbound Flight experiment.

Fai'rel: Clones! i should have known the sith would use that perversion to any end. 

Jorruss C'baoth: i am Master C'baoth!

Joruus C'baoth: i am master C'baoth!

Fai'rel: you are nothing but diluted copies of a great man!

Joruus C'baoth: (turning on the other clone) begone dark sider!

the clones attack one another with all aspects of force combat, Fai'rel attempts to flee the melee as Kligson enters the room. fully adorned in cybernetic armor.

Kligson: (firing stun pulse) we can still get what we came here for!

the stun pulse strikes one of the clones, giving the other the leeway needed to deliver the deathblow. using the force Joruus removes the other c'baoth clones head from its body and explodes it with force lightening.

Joruus C'baoth: how could i not have seen it all this time!

Kligson: I'm thinking they must've cooked this guy up in those Sparrti cylinders we saw on the way in.

Fai'rel: clone madness, if only it where curable. but still he is all the proof we'd nee...

Blaster bolts flare to life just past the dark jedi's shoulder. Gauer, Dilbun Vont,Phutt Nuum,Tractha,and J'mee Fett storm into the citadel pumping out rounds. Fai'rel deflects and absorbs rounds while advancing towards the squad.

Kligson attempts to fire his stun pulse again, preempting the attack C'baoth lets loose a burst of Force Lightening frying and fusing the suit to Kligson. the young slicer passes out as the clone turns its attention the back of the blaster deflecting Dark Jedi.

Fai'rel: (deflecting blaster fire) well if we meet again vont it will be in the nether realm of the force!

Dilbun Vont: you're just a job pal, hurry up and catch one of these bolts will ya!

Fai'rel: (force pushing vont,tractha,Fett) i'll deal with you later.

The dark jedi turns his attention towards Gauer and Phutt Nuum, seeing the scale of their fight closing in around him. Gauer takes ahold of Phutt Nuum and proceeds to use him as a human shield. the marksman dances around the lightsaber strikes of the dark jedi effortlessly as Phutt screams while loosing whole portions of his body to the deadly strikes.

Gauer: (as phutt is beheaded) probably the best use he ever got outta that beskar. 

Fai'rel: oh indeed, pity he ever returned from Toola. as for you...

the dark jedi is cut short by a blast of force lightening from the clone of C'baoth. both Gauer and Fai'rel are sent flying to the ground from the blast. at that moment Asajj Ventress, Nikkos Tyris and Sha'ala Doneeta enter the citadel with sabers drawn. the three connect with the bursts of energy via their lightsabers, already drained from the star destroyer incident they openly strain at the effort. Fai'rel re-engages his lightsaber and strikes at the three.

Fai'rel: (absorbing force lightening via his palm while striking at doneeta) the sith are too cowardly to face me themselves!

Sha'ala delievers a string of lightsaber attacks amidst the attack of the clone. Asajj and Nikkos attempt to advance upon the clone, whom increases his stream of lightening. one stream connects with doneeta while she's in mid spin in a duel with fai'rel.

Doneeta catches the business end of Fai'rel's lightsaber and her head falls to the ground. Ventress and Tyris attempt to ward off both C'baoth and Fai'rel.

Fai'rel descends upon the dark jedi twirling his lightsaber in anticpation of the death blow. Asajj and Nikkos struggle to stand while taking direct hits of the dark force lightening.

Seeing the open road of attack, Dilbun aims his Laser pistol at the dark jedi and opens fire. Fai'rel takes the full blast of the disintegration barrel and materializes into nothing. suddenly C'baoth takes a hit from the stun pulse as fired by Kligson, the clone falls to the ground, the lightening attack ceases. the entire surviving group turns their weapons towards Kligson as he presses a button that closes the door between himself and the group.

LAAT-traveling above the canopy of Wayland

J'mee Fett: (holding hand to head) Black Opps are requested back on Coruscant within the hour.

Tractha: understood.

Asajj Ventress: how'd a simple being triumph where we could not!

Dilbun Vont: maybe you should hit the fringe and try carving up a rep before you try swinging yur lazorsword wit the big

Asajj Ventress: they will never find your body..

Sora Bulq: enough! Ventress if you speak another word in my presence it will be your last.

Dilbun Vont: so what's the big kriffing deal bout cappin that Bpfhasshi clown? what was he the jedi's big guns before he went darko?

The Dark Jedi assembled take a moment before to gather their thoughts before speaking.

Nikkos Tyris:  for starters he was trained by the real version of that clone back there, C'baoth may have been a real hardhead. but he was one of the best, council material if not for his...Attitude.

Dilbun Vont: you've gotta be kiddin me..only somebody like Aurra Sing could take down a akk dog like that? right.

Sora Bulq: she could try, but he'd see it coming. he was also on-par with the count.

Dilbun Vont: gee you guys enjoy layin it on thick don'tcha?

Nikkos Tyris: do not doubt us, i share Ventress's dishonor and disgrace in failing to rid our masters of Fai'rel. as do Skorr and Bulq. The Bpfahsshi was no ordinary dark jedi Vont, years ago he was a potential Sith Lord inplace of the count.

Dilbun Vont: Kriff me, so that's why he had an axe to grind with em.

In deep space, Kligson begins construction of Droid World.

On Bakura, the Dark Jedi Lieutenants of Dooku bow before Darth Tyrannus.

On Wayland, Joruus C'baoth watches the wrecked star destroyer burn from his fortress.

On Coruscant, Tarkin, Gauer and Tractha place J'mee Fett back into stasis.

Coruscant- Twenty Years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Dilbun Vont: What the kriff was the idea putting me in-charge of that mess augie?

Palpatine: for starters vont, i'd like to congratulate you upon your success in this fragile scheme you've delivered us from. secondly...

Suddenly Vont is gasping for air, Palpatine approaches the flailing victim in the guise of his true self.

Darth Sidious: your continual attempts to strike fear into me are quite rude Dilbun. you of all people know exactly how i dislike being talked down to by inferior beings, and you know full well what treatment it arouses.

Dilbun Vont: (choking) dooo it!

Darth Sidious (releasing all hold over Dilbun) thanks to you my plans remain intact. my apprentice firmly placed in check, his acolytes at each others throats and completely ashamed of having played second fiddle to one such as yourself.

Dilbun Vont: why me? you're the kriffing dark lord of the sith!

Darth Sidious: if we had devised any sort of plan regarding Fai'rel's elimination. via the force he'd have already known our plan, as you've heard the fates of the force; especially the dark times were currently bringing about are too much for the jedi to view entirely in glimpse. so they avoid it all together, but the dark jedi can see what their brethren shy away from.

Dilbun Vont: ok he'd have seen it all coming, but still why'd it haft to be me? Gauer coulda led this mess!

Darth Sidious: Gauer isn't insane, his mind works along sane lines. yours however is practically unreadable due to its inconstant hyper-manic rhythm. understand what i'm telling vont, force-sensitives cannot read your mind.

Dilbun Vont: tyris knew i was doubting myself back on wayland! what other flavors of nerf fodder you got augie?

Darth Sidious: (smacking vont with the hilt of his lightsaber) i hope you you grasp the level of self-control you require me to practice vont. you really are a great tool, i probably owe my political career to our interactions.

Dilbun Vont: that's rich.

Darth Sidious: vague impressions can be gleaned and that is all, i assure you . Fai'rel would have dodged the blaster fire of any hired gun in the galaxy, save a handful of psychotics such as yourself. normal minds have so many triggers in them against abnormal actions that they can be heard coming from miles away. your urges, actions and desire to commit atrocity is so second nature to you that you simply can commit murder as another person reacts to a itch. now i believe you understand your worth to me dilbun.

Dilbun: (narration) crystal clear, my fee just tripled.

Palpatine: your next assignment requires no monetary advancement as of yet, the guidelines are simple. do what you do you best dilbun, enjoy yourself. the bigger the body count, the greater the distraction, high profile victims are in order. perhaps a string of them if need be, a trail is really what i require of you.

Dilbun Vont will Return
next episode: "The Lekku Loper"


Kamino-30 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Kal Skirata: "you wanna say that again Aiwha bait?"

Lama Su: "Mister Skirata i do believe we are in a formal business setting can you attempt to spare me your ill manners."

Jango Fett: "My trigger fingers are getting hard to control cloner!, by what right do you think can split my genome that way!"

Lama Su: "We share the goals here Jango. our patrons need this army battle ready in less than a decade, by our current estimates we cannot generate that many clones before that time. by creating this Clone Queen
program we can reach the goal and.."

Jango Fett: "this underhanded effort has existed long enough to garner a code name?"

Kal Skirata: "Udesii Jango, a bucket of this osik won't fly to the guys upstairs unless you've got proof."

Lama Su: "why would it matter to them? if anything the funds vested in the original plan can still vested be toward this new program."

Jango Fett: "this program ends here or i sink this whole kriffing place from orbit! you don't take my genome and turn into a girl of me got it! this wasn't supposed to some perverted get rich quick scheme!"

Lama Su: "we would never sell the clone queens to pleasure dens Jango!, unhand me at once. an exact clone of you could take your place at anytime fett. from our studies the Aiwha enjoy the taste of your blood, if
you take my meaning."

Jango Fett: "threats are never useful when your weaponless, gihaal."

Lama Su: "the program ends, but the product is already bearing fruit. an order of yours to be exact."

Kal Skirata: "what?"

Jango Fett: "then put her on ice alongside the arcs once it's done. but it never leaves this place got it!"

Lama Su: "the research will vanish and the clone will be kept as you wish."

Kal Skirata: "good choice su, but remember you ever even think about double crossing us again and you'll be left in my care. understood."

Lama Su: "of course."

Jango Fett: "this also stays between us kal."

Kal Skirata: "as you wish Mand'alor."

Coruscant-20 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Darth Sidious: "the security team recovered your rifle Dilbun, luckily Kinman was awake at that hour and could provide the code. this Augie mentioning needs to cease or connections will be made and you my friend
will find yourself in a worse place than Oovo IV I'm afraid."

Dilbun Vont: "sorry ta be a turd in the punch, but i gots bills to pay you know. can't keep my floors covered in blood wit no bones to spend."

Darth Sidious: "very well. your next mission may be a bit out of your league. but i can assure you if you survive it. your worth in my employ may well find you uniformed."

Dilbun Vont: "good, as long I'm enlisted with the eventual winners of this big galactic game you've rigged, augi..lord sidious."

Darth Sidious: "so your tongue can be curbed. the chancellor will need to see you soon, wilhuff needs to posture for awhile at you, but that pawn will fill you in on the mission once tarkin's fangs are dry."

Dilbun Vont: "Will it be one or two changes of shorts..this mission?"

Darth Sidious: "no rank advancement if that's what you're driving at. but something has risen to my attention regarding the count. if all goes as planned, which i can assure you it will. my apprentice's place will be firmly at my side after this mission."

Dilbun Vont: "oh, ol' dookie getting anxious to actually win this war. how funny. well I'll see you in, huh there i go again."

Darth Sidious: "try not to vomit on tarkin. get yourself together and prepare for my summons."

Dilbun Vont: well now even Augie's getting his roles mixed up, I'm pretty sure that's the first time the sith lord has rung me up and sounded like ol' Augie. this missions gonna be a karking pile of hurt.

Tarkin: "Vont! you kill two strumpets, get drunk with that scum villie and not only did you manage to miss your target twice in the senate in your drunken stupor. you show up to this meeting still drunk! how did you ever make a name for yourself as a ruthless killer out on the rim?"

Dilbun Vont: "by biting off fingers that get pointed at me for longer than five minutes. you're at about four by my count and I'm sure as hell hoping theres some meat on that bony thing cause my stomachs..."

Palpatine: "enough! guards, wilhuff everybody except vont out!. i can handle this drunken braggarts on my own."

-Minutes Later-

Dilbun Vont: "ok so Dooku attempted to seek a means to the SIP after you'd stashed it on wayland. but he got driven off by that guardian. so now you want me to what?"

Palpatine: "yes even to a sober man this plan is a bit confussing. the main point is you are to rally with that death watch coward Phutt Nuum and meet Dooku on Bakura the day after next. there you will provide him
with a copy of the SIP and he will provide you with a target. that Target will be the one whom comprised my database in the first place and revealed the location of the Sith storehouse on Wayland. keep in mind i
want the target alive, dooku will not. this will not hinder your transactions with the count, because after this is carried out he will find himself in place at his masters side."

Dilbun Vont: "ok, but where'd i get the sip?"

Palpatine: "in order to amaze the count you will need to say you stole it from under the guardians nose. now i do believe you should get going."

Dilbun Vont: "no threats bout big galgu, are we actually becoming friends Augie?"

Palpatine: "if i believed in such a thing as luck I'd suggest you do not push it any further."

Dilbun Vont: That's when i started sweating. crazy and bloodthirsty or not this was shaping up to be more than just a trap for me, ol' Augie was on the line this time. and i was being used to turn it around. if I'd had a clue about how this all might turn out back then, I'd have taken a walk off that balcony and saved myself the career that was ahead of me. creds are nice, strums are fun until they speak more than the guttural mumblings expected. but life's a sentence. and mine was about to start that night.


Phutt Nuum: "I's no care bout this kriffing gen'dai or his slimy mando hating armor! he's wants to be scrapin with me he'd be pullin out the real hand cannons and unload her before i get my pulse clip charged on him! haha."

Dilbun Vont: "for Fib's sake put the blasters away Phutt! were supposed to be doing a transaction here. remember?"

Dooku: "oh what a pity it was they didn't make the clone army after you my dear death watchmen. my droids would've simply exchanged a series of insults and we'd have the core already conquered."

Phutt Nuum: "Not if they'd had Vizla to use as template!"

Durge: "Mando Schisms aside, the Nuum clan was bred in keldabe and this hound is a nuum. so i deserve his blood Count!"

Dooku: "oh my word. why could it not be my worthy apprentice here at my side, he was suited for dealing with such underworld scum."

Dilbun Vont: Right about that second some of the renegade drained outta the count, i recalled a holonet piece tracking the confederacy's early movements. with Sha'ala Doneeta at his side the man looked like the
future then, now he sounded sad and weak. thanks to phutt's backalley manner, my story will go unaccounted. in other words I'm in like a dirty shirt.

Dilbun Vont: "all bloodscores aside, no offense Durge. but i didn't crawl outta the poodoo vat of mount tantiss with this case to keep me company. are we trade'in or not."

Dooku: "of course, with this portion of the research the poison can be remade. i must admit i myself would never have thought to swim into the Mount Tantiss storehouse by way of the sewage pipes. most creative

Dilbun Vont: "hey once you poison the dianoga, its all a workout. so whats this i hear about you not being able to get this yourself?"

Dooku: "well for starters Vont, my ego cannot be bruised by one such as yourself. the reason you had to swim in thirty kilos of dung was the same reason Master Yoda does not end this war. i assure you he could, but does not because he like all the Jedi have broken their own commandment. they FEAR the Dark side of the Force."

Dilbun Vont: oh great a lecture on the Force, why can't this stuff just stay on the after hours holonet and stay outta the mainstream news?

Dooku: "Some years back, before i myself came upon this realization. the great master lectured myself and two other masters on the subject of the Dark Side. this was a private ritual amongst the Jedi, anytime a master was about to be welcomed into the higher fold, they would be taken aside and made privy to the great Secret of the Dark Side."

The Jedi Temple-42 years Before the Battle of Yavin IV

Yoda: "Beware the lure of the Dark Side masters, for when taking upon this new duty. you will be made aware of its call. When seeing into the Fates of the Force, you will be bombarded by all aspects of life."

Jorus C'Baoth: "You mean to tell me that even the great Jedi Sages cannot look into the Fate of the Dark Side? how can this practice be permitted. we three have looked into the fates and seen the avenues of the Dark Side!"

Dooku: At that moment i understood the hidden message behind the masters backwards Basic. they actually made fear of the Dark Side a practice! Kuro and C'Baoth understood in their own ways of course. but
neither of them had understood the currents of the fates that we'd opened ourselves up to than I.

Yoda: "Master C'Baoth your bombastic manner edges close to the dark ways enough on its own. lest it be developed greater by actually peering at the Dark Side, we do not permit."

Dooku: "May the force be with you."

Dooku: Days after i so rudely brought an end to the master's rant, i looked into the issue further while sparring with Sora Bulq.

Dooku: "Do you see what i have come to suspect Sora?"

Sora Bulq: "Alarming that they actually let this go unnoticed. the Darkness is active, yet we are blind to it because we are ordered to not stare at it for too long out of..."

Dooku: "Fear!, much like the aggressive energies we expell now to conceal our tandem Vision of Darkness. they have broken the first rules of the Jedi. they fear and so i say why do we not go all the way and be
true masters of the Force?"

Dooku: Fear Mr. Vont, that is what keeps me from raiding the storehouse of Wayland. The Guardian you crawled in fear of is one whom I've known in the past as a Jedi. How he came into the service of the Sith,
i know not. but he is and his power is greater than my own. Your mission will be to dispose of the Slicer whom led me into that attempted slaughter on Wayland. His name is Kligson, ask my underlings about him. it'd be best if my hands remained out of this affair to be best assure your success. he is a very slippery one this Slicer.

Phutt Nuum: "So no time for strums on the wheel?"

Dilbun Vont: "yup, straight to tracking this barve."


Poggle the Lesser: "Oh that slicer!, Believe it or not he was the one that reverse engineered the droid control system. well if the Count says he's outlived his usefullness who em i to argue? I'll have wat tambor arrange a little get together for the three of you?

Dilbun Vont: "thanks poggle, hope you guys get the old red dirt back before this war ends. hate to see a people driven off their homeplanet, i really do."

Dilbun Vont: up until that moment i didn't understand why Augie wanted this techno wanker alive, guy that smart could be useful. best keep him under lock and key until you need him again. kinda like myself.


Phutt Nuum: "wheres the stinking wire jockey at tambor?"

Wat Tambor: "whats the meaning of this Vont? Poggle already set this up why are guys pushing me around? do you know who i em! I'm Wat Tambor! i made my bones when guys where still..."

Dilbun Vont: "I know the story, but my buddy here got a little hooked on the old Mando rage they used to pump up before battle. so he's like this with everybody."

Phutt Nuum: "oh come on Vont, can't i just stab him once?"

Dilbun Vont: "uh, i don't feel like smelling what he breathes alright. lets go to work."

-Minutes Later-

Phutt Nuum: "what the kark do you mean i can't kill this runt! the count hired us to snuff him out!"

Kligson: "this is a bit odd."

Dilbun Vont: "stow it droid handler! Phutt put the blade back in its sheath and step away before I'm forced to break whatever skirata left you for a jaw."

Phutt Nuum: "step off it vont, this guy is wanted dead by dooku. now who are you taken him alive for? and how much is in it."

Dilbun Vont: "Enough to keep me in this game and enough to keep out of breathing if you don't take that blaster outta my face Nuum!"

Kligson: "ok, so you're hear to take me alive to shall i say our mutual friend his sithiness? and he's here to carve me up because the count understands that Wayland was a trap?"

Fai'rel:(igniting Lightsaber) Most perceptive my boy. but i have a greater task in mind for you.

Dilbun Vont: "Frak me."

Fai'rel: "oh yes, Frak indeed. fraked all around. you mando, i heard your mother call, she wants you to wash up for din din. best you be off to Toola."

Phutt Nuum: "guys my mom wantsa me to get cleaned up for din din, i gotta go to toola..BYE!"

Fai'rel: "Vont i believe you understand the situation well enough to cuff yourself."

Kligson: "So are you capturing me or em i working with you?"

Fai'rel: "You are going to admit my entrance to the mount tantiss Storehouse on wayland. the Sith have turned against one another and forgotten one small detail about seeing into the fates of the Force."

Dilbun Vont: "I'll take a wild guess, i had a similar force lecture today. Dark Jedi can see what the Jedi are too afraid to look at and your reaping the benefits of this?"

Fai'rel: "my it is too sad you have nothing of the force about you. Kligson time we where off."

Kligson: "maybe next time we can hit coco town Vont. keep in touch."

Dilbun Vont:Ferglutz!


Tarkin: "Thanks to the battle of Kamino, we found out about this abandoned warrior. You must understand that this woman is military property and she does not officially exist. should the Mandalorians find out about such a perversion off their beloved Jango Fett's genome they'd all be at the Confederacy's call."

Dilbun Vont: "I assume from your attitude the Chancellor's fuming about what happened? i mean I'd expected you to personally supervise my..."

Tarkin: "Spare me the coy act Vont, i serve the Chancellor and our other Friend. his orders are to be followed exactly in this matter, ego and personal banter cannot become involved now. as of this moment you and i are on the same playing field. we are currently operating behind the backs of the Jedi Order and the actual War. for the first time the chancellor is actually rushing to catch a hydro-spanner before it clogs the gears of this galactic game you and i benefit from."

Dilbun Vont: Translation= The Sith infighting has opened up a window for a equally matched enemy to remove them from power or worse expose the whole shame before the stu is just right. this entire war was planned and scheduled like a game of shockball, that is up until now.

Tarkin: "On a side note, she was flashtrained to be a Advanced Recon Commando. I'd keep my hands to my self Dilbun."

J'mee Fett: "What are my orders?"

Tarkin: "Commando J'mee Fett, you have been as of this moment drafted into the service of the Grand Army of the Republic. your mission is classified and therefore you are not to stray from said mission at any moment. upon its completion you are to return here for continued stasis."

J'mee Fett: "Understood."

Tarkin: "That goes for you as well Vont!"

Dilbun Vont: "what I'm to join the ranks of frosty here? and await orders in my sleep!"

Tarkin: "Let me put it this way, as of this moment you are now officially an unofficial member of the Grand Army. in other words, shed that Fringe Green. You are now Commander of the Black Ops."


Umble Zarr: (raising energized hands over head) so be it my love!

Before she can pull Luke apart at the particle level Chi-Ro Rahem, Jacen Solo, and Cas-Lo Vont slash umble zarr into three separate halves. Luke stands up as the pieces hit the ground and holds out his hands to be bound.

Chi-Ro: (disengaging saber) now what?

Luke: take me away. My life is in your hands.

Cas-Lo: I won’t allow you to be executed master Skywalker. You must raise zeb-ska. It was gigin-taue’s last wish and I will grant it to my dead master.

Jacen: come on uncle, she can’t hurt you any further.

The four board the falcon with Umble’s remains in a box and Luke in energy manacles, the falcon and the v-wings leave the system.

Once on Yavin IV, Cas-Lo calls a grand hearing of the Jedi council to come to a conclusion on the matters of Luke Skywalker’s crimes and the placement of Zeb-Ska Soear.

Luke: I willingly submit myself this council’s ruling on my behalf.

Cas-Lo: after long deliberation the council has decided master Skywalker is to be exiled and not to interfere with Galactic Rule unless called upon by any member of this order.

Lowbacca: (speaking wookie) we have also agreed with master Soear’s dying wishes to have master skywalker raise Zeb-Ska Soear.

Corran Horn: the beast Montagra is on the first transport ship to the newly founded prison for dangerous force-sensitives as we speak.

Lowbacca: (speaking wookie) it is in the interest of this council that the possibility of Maldini’s existence remains a secret to the public.

Luke: (taking zeb-ska from cas-lo) May the force be with all of us in these dark years to come.

Cas-Lo: Luke Skywalker is here by exiled from the Jedi order and its ruling body over galactic affairs, if he attempts to return from this exile upon his own accord he is to be executed. He is not allowed to train any more apprentices after the completion of his work with Zeb-Ska Soear; young soear is to be allowed back into the Jedi order upon completion of his trail to knighthood.

Luke walks down the vast hallway of the temple of the Blue Leaf Cluster holding Zeb-Ska Soear, filled with thousands of knights and masters all looking down in shame at their orders restorer and all around savior as he is exiled for his crimes.

Closing shot of Luke’s back as he walks down the massive hallway.

Aboard the falcon.

Han: this is great!

Leia: I wonder if this is it.

Han: don’t say that.

Jaina: (from within turret) I’m getting targets everywhere, I can’t lock them all in  at once.

Han: we have to try!

Anakin solo stands up and runs to the airlock near the front of the vessel, buckling up his space suit as he exits the vessel and uses the force to fly through space.

The Jedi ignites his lightsaber upon reaching the hull of the command barge, he runs along the center of the canons chopping them off as he goes. Until from out of the barge pops Montagra clad in a special space suit with his saber ignited.

Montagra: (curses in ecado)

Anakin: not good!

The two engage in a dizzying zero gravity lightsaber duel on the hull of the junk barge in the midst of the massive garbage filled space battle .

Jacen solo aboard the escort use’s the force to guide the vessel down lightly to the gates Outside of Zarr’s castle. Jacen Solo, Chi-Ro Rahem, Putag, and Cas-Lo Vont jump the within the walls of the castle to only find that zarr had brought a legion of sith mummies with her.

Jacen: (taking battle stance) I have a very bad feeling about this.

Chi-Ro: (defending) I thought we got rid of all these guys!

Putag: (speaking ewokese) not all of them.

The four Jedi charge slicing thru the clothed army of bones and sabers. Chi-ro bends downward while reaching upwards and jumps up, as he jumps the mummies lift up. Once he hits the ground so do the mummies crumbling as they hit.

Chi-Ro: (landing) watch yourself putag!

Putag: (speaking ewokese) here goes nothing!

Putag back flips over three mummies only to land on six extended lightblades, the Ewok Jedi screams out in horror as it is run through.

Jacen: (smashing thru mummies) no!

Cas-Lo: (force pushing) there’s no time for that right jacen!

The three remaining Jedi proceed up the lengthy stairs of the castle fighting off mummies.

The high tech V-Wing Fighters find themselves outnumbered by low-tech piles of garbage, still out gunned but classically trained for aerial combat.

On the command barge Anakin and Montagra lock swords constantly, but in zero gravity a lightsaber duel is near impossible to finish.
Especially with these opponents: A clone of a high-powered Jedi and a simple minded Ecadogren who uses his feet and tail to negotiate his saber hilt.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) taste my blade boy!

Anakin: (levitating overhead) no thanks.

In the castle Luke and Umble are fighting a battle with force energies rather than sabers, Luke is commanding the fight until he over estimates a blast.

Luke: (taking hit) ahhh!

And is left open for a Teras Kasi power bomb knocking him backward to only watch as umble zarr summons her power and spreads her arms wide moving the moons of Go’gek far apart from each other.

Umble Zarr: watch as I kill them all for our love!

Luke: no don’t do it!

Then she slams her hands together smashing the moons together creating a massive global disturbance not to mention a disruption in the space battle.
In the may lay of the moons smashing together the space raider garbage fleet is scattered along with the v-wings and sent spinning out of control. The falcon speeds to Anakin’s aid, only to find he and Montagra fighting space garbage to moon debris.

Han: I’m tired of maneuvering through this garbage!

Leia: just turn on the tractor beam, I’ve communicated to Anakin. He’s well on his way to the airlock.

The falcon’s tractor beam captures Montagra, where the beast is left within the cargo hold, where the beast collapses. Anakin re-enters the ship and is warmly greeted by jaina.

Jaina: well I can’t believe you did all that, you are my brother.

Anakin: thank you for recognizing me.

The ship speeds to the surface as Luke looks on in horror, Zarr relishes in the moment.

Umble Zarr: your time has come Luke!  Now you will expire in the same fashion as Yap-En soear! Taken apart at the particle level.

Luke: you may destroy me but the Jedi will outlast you! You cannot undo the freedom we’ve spread to the corners of the galaxy.


after receiving such ill tidings from her master, Umble rushes to the highest tower of her castle to her daughter Maldini who is the fruit of her passions with Luke Skywalker. Upon entering the chamber where the five year old practices saber techniques with a training droid outfitted with a sith holo-cron, the young girl bows before her mother in fear.

Maldini: (bowing) what is thy bidding, mother?

Umble Zarr: (quickly pulling her from the ground) our time together quickly comes to end!

Maldini: (standing scared) how can that be? You just barely entered my life.

Umble Zarr: (slapping the child) do not feel love or pity for those whom hate you child. You will live to destroy this galaxy! Promise me this!

Maldini: (glaring) yes mother.

Umble Zarr: I will soon be dead, take this holo-cron it contains your purpose. Continue your training while you travel the galaxy aboard the attack cruiser I’ve had built for you, it has a droid crew so you won’t be distracted from your studies.

Maldini: (glaring) where do I go from there?

Umble Zarr: journey to the gypsy moon of Nefta, there you will meet my killer. He wouldn’t pass up your allegiance, learn what you can from him. But don’t allow him to interfere with your purpose!

Maldini: (glaring) yes mother.

The young Sith Mistress lifts off of Go’gek within her new attack cruiser, Umble Zarr watches from her massive castle window as the vessel leaves the atmosphere and her evil mother. Montagra leaves the castle with Space Raider commodores all of which are dressed in space suits.

Aboard the Jedi escort, a trimmer in the force cuts Luke’s meditation short.

Luke: how can that be?

Jacen: what is it uncle?

Luke: I feel as if the force is attempting to tell me that two beings directly connected to me are in existence, but their auras are vanishing from my insight just as quickly as I’ve sensed them. But that’s impossible, my son is dead….

Jacen: I’m sorry.

Luke: dead, never to achieve his destiny.

Chi-Ro: may I take this opportunity master skywalker to request your tutelage in my master hood of the Jedi arts.

Luke: I accept chi-ro, but must curse you for interrupting my connection to…nothing its ok. I accept. If we survive.

Chi-Ro: thank you master Skywalker.

Rahem bows and leaves the cabin of the escort, Luke and jacen continue mediating. The Jedi escort and the millennium falcon as followed by a legion of v-wing fighter’s blast out of hyperspace, they run head long into a junk blockade. The Jedi escort speeds past as the v-wings as led by the falcon engage the junk fleet blockade. the escort charges past the blockade to only get shot down by the commanding barge and pulled down into the atmosphere of the planet by Umble Zarr. As the vessel plummets towards the rocky toxic waste filled surface, Luke is teleported out of the ship by umble zarr into an awaiting empty torture device.
A massive compound unguarded by any turrets or canons. Within the castle, Umble gloats over Luke.

Umble Zarr: at last I have you all for my own.

Luke: I’ve come to kill you umble! Nothing more than that.

Umble Zarr: a pity we could have restructured the galaxy together, set everyone in their places. Obtain the power for which no one can dream. Together we could take the void apart and form new worlds in which to gaze upon.

Luke: you can’t give back you’ve taken from me.

Umble Zarr: This is the torture of a Teras Kasi whom wants you all for herself.

Luke: (grimacing in pain) id that supposed to make it more painful and meaningful than a little dark-force lightning from the emperor.
To demonstrate she uses the force to quarter him and electrocute him with Teras Kasi bolts of defense. Upon completing this show of power, Luke uses the force to break free of the device and back flips into the air igniting his saber hilt before he lands locking swords with umble.

Luke: you’ve stolen from me…you’ve taken the future’s hope….you’ve awoken my Dark Side!

Umble Zarr: this is not the time to refuse me again, our daughter Maldini shall triumph over the force! There is no greater enemy, it uses me as well as you in this game it plays against time.

Luke gives in and expels force lighting countering her attack, the two start a mighty force power struggle while lightsaber dueling.

The republic fleet arrives, they immediately engage the space raider armada that is practically camouflaged in space garbage. The falcon races towards the battle’s main problem: the command barge a massive misshapen mass of canons firing randomly at every vessel.


Han and Jaina pilot the millennium falcon with remnants of the relief effort en toe to Korriban in hopes of rescuing the missing transport crew. While they make their check of calculations before coming out of light speed, the two discuss the clone.

Jaina: how can we accept him or her after she’s kept herself away from us to raise him again, can’t you see the steps towards the dark side she’s taken?

Han: I’m more than aware of the transgressions of your mother and uncle. But you forget Jaina I have no force flowing thru me. I can only love your mother for what I see in her, and if this is what she has to have around her to re-enter our lives. Than I accept him as Anakin, my son.

Jaina: once the others hear of this, there will be horrendous charges to be answered upon for these crimes against the ways of the Jedi.

Han: I thought you thru down that sword long ago to purse your career as a member of rogue squadron?

Jaina: yes I did father, but I still maintain the practices of a Jedi in my spare time.

Han: if we are to reform this family Jaina, I expect you to be there with us.

Jaina: I can’t promise I’ll always be there, but I will do this for you father. Hopefully someday I’ll be able to forgive mom for this deception.

Han: well you better plan on that, I’m at least twenty years older than your mother, I won’t be around forever.

Jaina: yes you will. Dodging in and out of space lanes wearing bottle-lens glasses complaining about how slow these kids fly nowadays.

Han: maybe I should go out and get myself killed in battle before that happens.

Han pulls the drive clutches backward bringing the ship out of hyperspace within a safe distance from Korriban, the fleet does the same. The ships speed past Korriban’s seven moons only to find the massing armada of Space Raider Junk Barges awaiting them, immediately rogue squadron engages the massive junk vessels.

Jaina: I should be out there with them!

After making their way out of the Caves of the Korriban, the group of survivors break into argument over the actions of Umble Zarr.

Cas-Lo: (setting down Gigin-Taue and Zeb-Ska) it is now clear that Umble was the murderer of Yap-En, the mysterious master of Montagra, and the reason for our being stranded here. But what of this prophesy is known to you master Skywalker?

Luke: (catching breath) montagra claimed when we ran into him in wild space a year ago, that he had stumbled across a sith prophesy capable of destroying the galaxy, the force and bestowing upon its practitioner ultimate power.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) any ideas about what is needed to enact this atrocity?

Gigin-Taue: (dieing) this is not my life…. how could she after all…. I’ve done to…. appease…. her,

Luke: (comforting the master) It’s not your fault master Soear, don’t think about it right now. Try and project yourself onto your power, remember your ways.

Gigin-Taue: (turning white) I…do. Not wish to…linger.

Cas-Lo: you have too much knowledge to let it die with your body, project yourself please master Soear.

Gigin-Taue: (dieing) master…. of what…. leading you all down …a clouded path into…the web of…my…my. I have no pearls of wisdom to bestow upon the…

Cas-Lo: (holding Zeb-Ska) please for your son’s sake, so he may hear your words when he reaches manhood.

Gigin-Taue: (reaching for zeb-ska) master…vont leave my prescience, Luke…will you raise my son…make sure he doesn’t…. become like his…mother…

Luke: (holding zeb-ska) I can’t be afforded this opportunity, if only you knew the truth about umble and I. You wouldn’t be giving me your son.

Gigin-Taue: (dieing) I have…some…idea of what she…longed for…. but what of…the past…it is. Clear that she meant to save…you…not I... that she lov..ed.

Gigin-Taue Soear dies and does not vanish. But remains a broken corpse. Mara stands behind Luke and Zeb-Ska cradling Ben having heard the entire conversation. Cas-Lo Vont frowns in disgust and Luke looks down in shame.

Chi-Ro, Threepio and Putag start to build a fire, Mara walks away from the makeshift camp carrying Ben with Luke trailing behind her.
Cas-Lo covers Gigin-Taue’s body with his robe and mediates beside his dead body as the sun starts to go down.

Within the sith temples, montagra attempts to copy the entire prophecy from the walls onto an empty holo-cron.
Umble Zarr suddenly joins the beast, montagra ignites his Saber hilt. Zarr ignites hers as well. The two lock swords.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) this prophecy is my master! Back Jedi wench!

Umble Zarr: (speaking Ecado) have you ever seen master? You’ve only ever heard the voice dictating what you where to do.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) How can you be the voice?

Umble Zarr: (speaking Ecado) you first heard my commands on Haducu after Luke abandoned you as he had done the same to me. Now finish copying the prophecy, there is vengeance to be taken.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) yes, I finish in fear of pain.

They disengage their sabers, montagra finishes copying the prophecy the two exit the sith temples as the sunsets.
As night falls on Korriban, Mara confronts Luke after sensing the truth of his relationship with Umble Zarr.

Mara: (cradling Ben) how could you carry on this façade for so long, did you not think something would come of your clouding of the past and truth?

Luke: please forgive me Mara, this all happened long before we where married. It was during my last days of teaching at the academy.

Mara: (cradling Ben) you cannot be forgiven. She apparently must have meant something to you, but how could you pretend nothing happened between you, how could you carry on like that on Proloxis Four?

Luke: (looking the other way) please forgive me, I love you. I feel nothing for her and never did. She seduced me at my weakest and won out over better judgment, please do not hate me!

Mara: (setting Ben down and storming out the tent) I will never trust you again!

Luke: (running after her) no Mara! Please listen to me. This cannot be the end of us.

Mara runs away from the camp in tears, Luke follows but is too slow and only watch as Umble Zarr strikes down Mara Jade-Skywalker whom it would appear was cradling Ben in her arms. Zarr floats away to a junk barge overhead. Luke falls to his knees sobbing over Mara’s ashes for she was incinerated.

Luke: (on his knees) noooo!

During the may-lay of arguments, montagra sneaks into Mara’s tent and abducts Ben Skywalker whom is thought to be dead. Umble Zarr, Montagra depart the planet with Ben and the entire prophesy copied.

After the signal is given, the space raider fleet departs. Allowing the falcon to pick up the survivors whom are fighting off sith mummies once again as they run for the extended ramp.

The group of Jedi’s jump onto the ramp, Cas-Lo uses the force to pull Threepio and Gigin-Taue’s body aboard. The republic fleet and the falcon make the jump to light speed. aboard the freighter, acting as new council leader Cas-Lo Vont inquiries on the broken rules of Luke upon being introduced to the clone of Anakin Solo.

Cas-Lo: this is blasphemy! Work of the dark side. How could you do this?

Luke: (resting head in palms while sitting at holo-chess table) I assisted my sister in channeling the spirit of her dead son into an identical clone body, I clouded this fact and my past romantic involvement with Umble Zarr from the rest of you.

Cas-Lo: what was the extent of your involvement with zarr? How far did it go and who was the instigator?

Luke: Umble and I met sometime before the Yuuzhan Vong invashion, she was a sudden addition to the academy’s roster. A complete and total over achiever looking for complements at every corner, answering every question as if reading my mind.  She approached me at random in the beginning, from then on her skill at keeping tabs on me become a constant annoyance. I thought it was just a petty crush at first, but once I gave into her seduction it was clear she was obsessive on keeping me in her clutches and pushing me to her satisfaction. Desire was my crime.

Cas-Lo: no. treachery and blasphemous deeds are your crimes; you will answer for them all Luke. No matter what losses you’ve endured, you’ve broken the laws you set upon us. Sentry I require a pair of energy manacles, I place master Skywalker under arrest.

Republic Sentry: (reluctantly) yes sir.

Leia: I will not stand for this!, my brother personally restarted this order and saved the galaxy from the emperor.

Cas-Lo: you may defend him if wish during his trial, but I will not hear his many achievements right now. And ambassador you’re not exactly innocent in this matter either, so I’d mind my tongue.

Leia: you will not succeed in this venture master vont!

Luke: (standing up) I accept the charges and deny the right to be defended in a court of my peers the council under master vont’s leadership will know what to do with me! That will be enough leia.

Leia: (dumbfounded) are you sure?

Luke: (sitting) yes. I’m guilty and I deserve whatever punishment they think best suits me.

Cas-Lo: (in astonishment) you have redeemed yourself in my eyes master Luke, but I will remain stern on the matter of your trail. Sentry could you confine him to one of the engine rooms and give me his saber hilt.

Master Skywalker is taken away from the holo-chess table by a four republic sentries, Cas-Lo remains with Leia and her sons.

Cas-Lo: I had heard of the legendary strength of Anakin Solo, but being in his prescience is amazing.

Jacen: yes master vont, he is powerful. I have appointed him my apprentice in hopes of making sure he doesn’t become the same kind of arrogant person he was before.

Cas-Lo: please jacen you’re still only a knight, master soear didn’t finish you or chi-ro’s trial to master hood. Neither of you are fit to train anyone yet.

Jacen: I’m training my brother no matter what master vont. Besides I’ve reminded him of most of his skills, he catches on quickly.

Cas-Lo: I will allow it, due to your expertise. If it where chi-ro the answer would be no.

Leia: I’m ready to return him to the galaxy yet, he still has yet to develop his old personality.

Jacen: if you continue to covet him this much, the dark side’ll encumber you. You’re already walking a fine line towards it.

Leia: it will be his decision. Anakin do you wish to leave me and become a Jedi knight again.

Anakin: I remember much of my lifestyle involving the use of the force, my retraining would be short. You could move to coruscant and we could keep in contact with everyone.

Cas-Lo: it is possible the temple is nearly rebuilt.

Leia: the senate has a long ways to go though, I don’t know if we’ll be able to put up with the continuing reconstruction noise. But if this is your wish Anakin, I’ll follow you in hopes the rest our family come along as well.

Anakin: then it’s settled.  I’m more than capable to do battle if it’s needed.
On the surface of a large planet that glows toxic green from space called Go’Gek, Umble Zarr keeps a castle where she confers with Space Raider commodores whom argue their fears of Proloxian and Republic attacks.

Commodore Grug: what of the Jedi and the republic? There sure to avenge the proloxians and who ever else has suffered due to this atrocity.

Umble Zarr: I can assure you we need not worry about retribution from the proloxis system. The planet, the kingdoms all lie in ruins as we speak. if all goes according to plan, we will soon have a man within in my grasp capable of reforming the galaxy to his liking. A man who if pushed in the right direction would have enough power to topple the republic. And with him and me in command of this galaxy, there would be no need for the stumbling Jedi. A new order shall be erected in the place of this fragile collective of planetary systems, my love and I will have the Overlords of the Teras Mundri beg for mercy at our heels.

Commodore Grug: and where would we figure in this new order?

Umble Zarr: where ever you think best suits you. Now leave me, deploy your fleet.

The commodore exits with his captains, Umble peers out the window of her massive castle. Montagra playfully juggles Ben Skywalker between his feet and tail  only to be suddenly stopped with a gust of force energy by insect-like Teras Kasi master Zett’alk, who takes the child by spinning around the infant fast enough to form an energy ball of protection around him.

Zett’alk: (in a thousand hissing whispers) your plans are folly and always have been umble!

Umble Zarr: (igniting saber) I need that child for leverage!

Zett’alk: (in a thousand hissing whispers) ever since you where a child you’ve endangered me to the overlords, how dare you attempt to make their secret wars known to the galaxy! my fight for survival is also endangered with this foolish plot hatched in the pursuit of desire!

Umble Zarr: (swinging saber) that boy has power like his father, whatever you mold him into would be even more dangerous to you than I. But his sister will be quite the sith well before he’s ready to combat her.

Zett’alk: (in a thousand hissing whispers) your days are numbered Umble! Your arrogance has outweighed your senses as predicted. You know nothing of my other agent amongst the Jedi!

Umble Zarr: (swinging saber) impossible! How could you undermine my abilities with such disrespect!

Zett’alk: (in a thousand hissing whispers) improbable not impossible! I’ve instructed this agent to dispose of you and take over the tutelage of your offspring with Skywalker he will meet her on Nefta! Your service to me turned ill long ago. My greatest student, my greatest disappointment. May you not suffer me anymore.

Umble Zarr: (disengaging saber) farewell, you had better hope your double agent succeeds.

Umble Zarr bows before her master as it leaves the planet with Ben Skywalker.

Aboard the Millennium Falcon, Luke convinces Cas-Lo, Jacen, Putag, Chi-Ro and Anakin that they must deal with umble zarr before the council convenes.

Luke: we must deal with umble zarr before she can regroup her armies and march upon the worlds of the galaxy.

Jacen: together I believe we can conquer her.

Cas-Lo: this is suicide jacen, you saw the corpse of Yap-En her power is too great.

Luke: I will face umble, alone.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) arrogance and ignorance walk hand in hand master.

Chi-Ro: Are you sure master Skywalker, we all saw the ease at which she dispensed the temple guard.

Luke: it was my force potential that drove her to save gigin-taue and I from that beast. I know I can fight her, my survival is not of any concern to me.

Jacen: you mustn’t act out in vengeance uncle.

Cas-Lo: yes you have Zeb-Ska to raise upon gigin-taue’s last wishes.

Luke: we’ll see.

Jaina enters the engine sector.

Jaina: the scout ships have reached the location  the junk barges went directly after Korriban. It’s a toxic planet in wild space and it appears to be heavily guarded, rogue squadron is speeding to meet us there.

Anakin: I will not waste my self in battle on the planet’s surface I choose to remain aboard this ship brother.

Jacen: I understand, don’t worry I’ll be back to complete your training.

Jaina: well even if you didn’t make it back I’m sure uncle Luke and mom would cook up a clone to replace you in our hearts.

Anakin: jaina, I am your brother. Mind body and spirit. You must accept me.

Jaina: I accept you under the circumstances that would continue my relationship with our mother. But only to those terms clone!

Anakin: I will prove myself to you sister. It’s just a matter of time.

Jaina exits the engines as the Jedi start to re-enter the galley of the ship.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) filled with worry for her future, do not worry Anakin she accept you in time.

Anakin: I hope so.

Cas-Lo: the five of us will depart this vessel, I would not like to endanger the rest of Jacen and Luke’s family. Are we agreed.

Jacen: of course master vont.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) we must mediate, before battle it was gigin-taue’s way.

Chi-Ro: I’ll be right there, I’m still not quite over his passing.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) understandable.

The five Jedi leave the engine room for the docking ring between the falcon and the republic high liner containing a standard Jedi escort vessel.


Aboard the Millennium Falcon, General Solo attempts to contact his estranged wife Leia who has settled back into the life of an ambassador for the New Galactic Republic. 

Han: leia come in!

Leia: (thru intercom) well how’s it going stranger?

Han: not so good, proloxis four was evacuated. We’ve come to the first refuel station and found the transport vessel carrying Luke’s family and the royal procession is missing.

Leia: (thru intercom) Missing?

Jacen: yes mom, gone.

Han: it would appear their ship fell out of light speed somewhere between Cinnagar and Koros Minor.

Jacen: the sith home world of old is the only planet where they could have landed.

Han: so were going to need a search party.

Leia: (thru intercom) I don’t know if I can arrange that on this short of notice. But I’ll meet you guys at the refuel station with whatever I can manage, plus there’s someone I’ve been keeping to myself for far too long. Who can more than help us in this situation?

Han: what? Could you please explain this?

Leia: (thru intercom) hopefully he can help you as he’s helped me.

Leia’s transmission fades away.

Jacen: I don’t know, but she sounds like she’s finally gotten over Anakin’s death.

Han: that would really help things between us.

The two family members sit dumbfounded as the ships continue to refuel and the remaining republic troops are removed from the transport vessel for the formation of a search party. The refuge vessels go back into light speed.

While Journeying through the sith temple, the group stops to drink water and montagra becomes an increasing threat to Mara and Ben.

Montagra: (speaking ecado) strong boy, very stronger than mommy and daddy.

Mara: (holding Ben closer) and what would you know of the matter.

Montagra: (speaking ecado) just something that comes and goes thru me as master pushes me towards its goal. A ringing in my ears that turns into visions of the future, constant change of course. But the boy grows into strong…force sensitive.

Mara: (holding Ben closer) your intellect is too simple to know such things. It always has been.

Montagra: (speaking ecado) Doubt me and doubt the path that we walk, were on the steps towards your doom.

Luke: (striking montagra) shut up! Stop tempting me towards the dark side!

Montagra: (speaking ecado) I only speak the truth!

Mara: (holding Ben closer) Luke stop it, I started talking to him, and it’s not his fault.

Luke: (kicking montagra in the stomach) is this where you start the end of the galaxy beast! Tell me before you die!

Montagra: (speaking ecado) just the beginning! There is much to be done and sacrificed!

Luke ignites his lightsaber and goes to kill montagra, but is stopped by Gigin-Taue and Chi-Ro who physically pull him back from the beast.  In the may lay montagra breaks the chains and regains his saber hilt via the force from chi-ro’s belt. The beast ignites the weapon while running into the catacombs reciting a mantra.

Montagra: (speaking sith)

Upon finishing the recital all mummified sith lords of past are brought to life by their roaming sprits which are channeled back into the mummies with pure force energy igniting their sabers. The mummies advance upon the surrounded Jedi whom begin running and fighting millions of the undead.

Cas-Lo: (defending with saber) this is impossible!

Mara: (holding Ben in one arm and fighting with the other) no, just never been done before!

Saba Sebatyne: (force pushing mummies and defending with saber) we must stay together!

Luke: (slashing mummies) Mara stay with me!

Putag: (speaking ewokese and fighting with saber) montagra will pay for this!

Cas-Lo: (force crumbling a mummy) master soear watch out!

Gigin-Taue: (defending umble zarr) thank you master vont, my dear don’t you carry a saber hilt.

Umble Zarr: (holding zeb-ska) how am I supposed to defend myself and carry this child!

Gigin-Taue: (defending umble zarr) Mrs. Skywalker seems to be doing a good job of it!

Tenel Ka Dijo: (swirling saber as she takes out six mummies) there’s too many of them!

Putag: (speaking ewokese and fighting with saber) I’ve got your back!

Saba Sebatyne: (force pushing mummies) many they are, but not indestructible!

Tenel Ka Dijo: (swirling saber) master Sebatyne no!

Luke: (striking mummies) we must keep going!

At that moment four sith mummy’s quarter Master Sebatyne, Saba falls to pieces as the fleeing Jedi continue their way down the massive hallway while fighting off numerous sith mummies as they run.

Amongst the stars Han and leia embrace for the first time since Anakin’s death, a clone of Anakin Solo adorned in an advanced space suit stands before the broken family unsure of what to think of such open shows of affection.
While his sister Jaina is too emotionally bankrupt to become attached to this clone and lets everyone know it, troops and droids are left dumb founded, as they aren’t related to the broken family. Her twin brother Jacen feels the exact opposite and is brought to tears at the sight of his dead younger brother standing before him.

Han: oh leia, I’ve missed you.

Leia: Han, it’s ok. I’ve come to terms with his death and given him new life with the help of Luke.
Han: what do you mean new life?

Leia: within this clone of our son resides his sprit.

Han: Isn’t this usage of the dark side, how could you let this clone come between us leia.

Jaina: how is this possible?

Leia: Anakin Solo lives again. Greedily I’ve kept him to myself for all these years.

Jacen: so this is what uncle Luke was clouding from the others.

Jaina:(standing away from both the clone and her mother) and why do you think were going to accept him.

Leia: Aside from my ambassador duties I’ve been re-raising our son, with growth acceleration he’s almost to the age at which he was taken from us.

Jacen: (Rushing to the clone) I’ve longed to see you again little brother and I’m sorry to report the death of your first love Tahiri.

Anakin: I have no memories of this previous life led by Anakin Solo, only his abilities.

Jacen: how can that be?

Han: you said Luke channeled the sprit into him, then why does he not remember his life?

Leia: because Anakin did not chose or know how to retain his identity in death, his sprit does not know its past or personality. Luke has suggested that bits and pieces will return in time.

Jacen: he’s connection to the force is intact, maybe greater than before.

Jaina: uncle Luke has gone too far, this betrays all trust he may have garnered in the eyes of his knights.

Han: Jaina, if this helps your mother I suggest we allow it.

Jaina: mother, just the act of coveting Anakin this much is a turn to the dark side!

Leia: can’t you just accept the fact that I’m attempting to bring us back together, like the old days?

Jaina: those days are ended, you cannot bring them back. And besides I have my own life to live, we all do.

Anakin: I do not understand your anger, mom….

Jaina: (storming out of the room) I will not accept this clone as my brother. There’s no bringing him back!

Han: do you think cloning chewie would chill her out?

Leia: oh Han, you’re too much.

R2-D2 follows Jaina Solo to her star fighter as her parents embrace once more; Jacen begins to instruct the clone of his brother in the ways of the Jedi. 

Back in the caves of Korriban, our hero’s run up a massive flight of stairs with thousands of Sith Mummies following them into a massive chamber. Upon entering it the mummies retreat and go around the chamber.
Gigin-Taue shouts curses as the others catch their breath and tend to wounds from the sharp rocks protruding out of the temple walls.

Gigin-Taue: (holding saber over his head) cowardly sith incarnate!

Unsatisfied with the retreat the Jedi Master lets out a Proloxian battle cry awakening a greater evil, the temple guard a massive Gorax called Bana’ Ka.
The mighty beast stumbles to its feet and ignites it’s two hundred foot tall LightSaber, the Jedi engage their saber hilts and stand ready as the beast falls back down to its knee under the weight of the behemoth crimson light blade which lights the entire chamber. Umble Zarr and Mara Jade-Skywalker hold their children close while walking back towards the staircase, Acheff-9 throws C-3PO down and extends its ion canons. The droid approaches the Jedi who stand ready for the attack.

Cas-Lo: at least we can now say the proloxian battle cry can wake anybody up.

Gigin-Taue: (engaging saber hilt) cut the chatter vont.

Luke: Putag I thought Gorax’s where native to Endor?

Putag: (speaking ewokese) so did I.  I’ve never seen one this big before.

Luke: trust in the force my friends.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) here to assist in destruction.

Chi-Ro: great.

Tenel Ka Dijo: (swirling saber) it’s completely enraged.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) subject is vulnerable in three unprotected locations.

Chi-Ro: (holding saber over head) and those would be?

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) one being the neck, two being the growing, and three being the eyes.

Tenel Ka Dijo: (swirling saber) shouldn’t three count as two separate weak points.

Luke: save it for later master dijo.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) if there is a later.

The beast stands up and brings its saber down upon the temple where the Jedi where standing before they took to the air via the force, the droid Acheff-9 fires it’s canons at the specific weak points repeatdly enraging the beast all the more. The Jedi defend them selves against the massive light blade as it strikes the temple walls randomly, they fly about stabbing Bana’Ka with what to it would be pin pricks. Master Dijo miscalculates one levitation and is struck with the massive light blade; the Jedi master’s death is signaled by a flicker in the blade and a pile of burned corpse plummeting to the temple floor.

The others attempting to continue stabbing the beast to death are tossed about via the force by bana’ka as it swings randomly bringing down massive parts of the temple, one chunk of rubble smashes Acheff-9 as the droid fires at Bana’Ka’s left eye. The beast lets out a cry of pain, the Jedi attempt to follow Acheff-9’s last effort but Bana’Ka swats Chi-Ro, Putag and Cas-Lo back towards the staircase, the three Jedi nearly smash into threepio.

Luke and Gigin-Taue double team the gorax with a last effort but are taken into the beasts hand and thrown violently towards the ground as bana’ka goes to strike them with its saber in the other hand, the Jedi speed to the floor of the temple attempting to deviate via the force but are overpowered by bana’ka’s will to kill them. The two are almost killed by the impending light blade as a burst of force power is directed at Bana’Ka from the staircase. The burst of energy encumbers the beast killing it as the Jedi use the force to land softly, upon landing Mara, Ben, Threepio, Zeb-Ska, Chi-Ro, Putag, and Cas-Lo stand away from Umble Zarr whose hands are still glowing.

Luke runs past Umble Zarr to comfort Mara and Ben, while Gigin-Taue picks up Zeb-Ska and places him on his shoulders he goes to put his arm around Umble’s neck. Sensing the movement whilst glaring at the Skywalker’s, she strikes Gigin-Taue with a distinctive Teras Kasi attack knocking young Zeb-Ska to the ground and Paralyzing Master Soear. Before the shocked group can react to Zarr’s bloodthirsty habits, the sith mummies bust into the chamber pouring over the dead gorax in droves, Umble floats to the ceiling as Cas-Lo and Chi-Ro pick up wounded Gigin-Taue, defenseless Zeb-Ska and oblivious Threepio. They make for the tunnel with the rest of the shocked group. The sith mummies chase after the fleeing survivors.
