Episode 2.5: The Exile's Prisoner
After a long and hard-fought battle at the Trayus Core, its
namesake, the Sith Lord DARTH TRAYA, has finally been defeated.
The JEDI EXILE stands victorious. Dozens of Dark Jedi Assassin
bodies have been cleaved asunder. These same assassins had
knelt in humble respect at the Exile's feet before they attacked.
Now, they all lie dead along with Traya, except for one that
still bears a faint trace of the Force.
The Exile, out of pity or desire for the assassin to pay the price,
has decided to take her prisoner. DARTH TYSY DVUKH sleeps in
the medbay of the Ebon Hawk, watched by its suspicious crew...
Atton Rand, the bold and cunning pilot of the vessel Ebon Hawk,
was utterly confused by the strange body lying on the medbay cot.
"Who the hell is this?", he asked softly, motioning toward the body.
It appeared to be female, from the full-looking torso and hips, but
the victim's face was covered by a standard black Dark Jedi veil.
"An assassin," said Visas Marr. "If she moves or tries to attack us,
she's taking a long walk out the airlock." She squared her shoulders.
Atton turned with a jolt. Apparently, Visas had not fully mastered
the code of the Jedi yet. No matter. She herself was once a Sith.
"The meatb--er, patient--is in stable condition, Master." HK-47
gave his report. "However, I fail to see why you took her on board.
Assassins, if my memory serves me correctly, always seek to kill."
The Exile didn't respond, but merely turned to walk toward the medbay.
Chetyr...chetyrnadtsat'. Fourteen years of hard labor. I'll pay!
New, penitent thoughts swirled slowly through the assassin's mind.
Darth Traya was dead. Tysy could sense it, even in a coma. She,
Darth Dvukh, had learned the fate of traitorous Sith Lords and had
come very close to meeting it. Now, all she wanted was her life.
Tysy heard a woman's voice. Awaken. Faintly, through the Force...
"Traya?" She spoke the dread name aloud, in her sleep, though it was
barely a whisper. "I've failed you...Mistress. The Exile...is still alive."
I meant for him to live, said Traya. Either that, or to die by
my own hand. There was only to be one survivor in the Trayus Core.
Tysy didn't understand. "Pochemu?" she asked. "Mistress...why?"
He was strong, replied Traya, the strongest man I've ever
known. You were to be my Darth Dvukh if he died, but you failed.
I do not blame you, Tysyacha. He struck my Dark Jedi down--killed
them all, without a second thought. All but you, and I'm glad for it.
Tysy sighed. "I...thought you never let failures live."
It's true, Traya said, and it's still true, even though I am
one with the Force. I saw reason to spare you when I saw the passion
within your soul. No mere Sith can bend it to his will, and no mere
Jedi can defeat it. It takes an Exile, this man, to match it and more.
I want you to serve him, Tysyacha. Be his, Darth Dvukh, and conquer!"
At that moment, Tysy jerked awake, as if from a vivid nightmare.
"Kreia let you live?" Visas Marr's voice was coolly surprised. "I wouldn't have."

Steven sat alone in the common roon, reading an old data-pad about the mandalorian wars. He had only recently joined the crew of the ebon when the battle of Telso had just finished. He knew the exile from the mandalorian wars, he served under her for most of the war and they were pretty good friends.
After finishing his reading he went to check on the prisoner. As he entered he saw Visas talking to the prisoner.
"Kriea kept you alive? I wouldnt" She said. The prisoner assassin didn't reply.
"Find anything interesting about her?"Steven asked her.
01-28-2006, 10:01 AM
Ryan sat in his chair, holding his hands tightly. He was frowning because a lot of things were on his mind. He was trying to figure out what to do next, either stay and try to help or begin the search for Revan and the Sith. But the thing that occupied his mind the most was this operation conducted by the Sith. Given such devotion to this task, the Sith could only have a purpose that affects all existence, otherwise no one would attack like that. He knew it because the Sith may be quicker than their mind, but they weren't stupid. He was enraged. He wanted to kill every Sith in existence after what had happened. Killing Nilhus was only the beginning and he struck down the thing like it was an animal. Making Sion fall to his knees and beg for mercy made him happy before the final confrontation. When the time came to kill Traya he defeated her easily, but when the final moment arrived, he wanted to cut Traya's head off in an instant. But he didn't kill her... He let her go.
And that was the thing that hunted his mind. He made the wrong decision, but then he started to stop blaming others and started to blame himself. How couldn't he see it? It was obvious! But it was too late now... The Jedi Masters are dead and all the hope for the Republic fell along with the Restoration Project.
But his thoughts now focused on the prisoner... The potential force user. Why did he take her? He didn't know. It might be because he wanted to torture this one for information... or perhaps he wanted to bring himself out of this nightmare.
Suddenly a knock at the door stopped Ryan from thinking and made him turn to see who it is. It was Atton.
"Hey. How's it going?" Atton asked.
"I am fine Atton." replied Ryan.
"So, what are we going to do with that assassin?" asked Atton in annoyance.
"Is she awake?" asked Ryan.
Ryan then got up from his chair and pushed Atton a bit away from him. As Ryan made his way to the medical bay, he wanted to see why this assassin wanted to be sparred. He entered and saw the group examine her. Ryan asked:
"How is she?"
01-28-2006, 11:12 AM
Nymf had arrived to Dantooine shortly after The Exile had left. He hadn't been there for ages, since he was a kid. He got suprised after seen the Enclave rebuit, it was exepected to be in ruins. Now wandred through the Enclave.
For the first time in years he thought of his real family, his childhood. He had to sit down and think.
Memories turned up in his mind. 'Nemo' he thought, one of the kindest person he had ever seen, and so loyal to the Order. Nymf had heard that Nemo got killed some years ago in some ruins of Dantooine.
Through the years he had crossing the Galaxy, and met less Jedis for every planet. "Are they all gone now" he thought for himself when he relized that someone should have reuilt the Enclave. He started to walk again and enter the Council room. There he found three corpses. Three Jedis. He walked towards them. "Jedi Masters" he thought and looked at their robes. He recognized Vrook, for he had been on the Enclave much more than the others. But what had killed them? It just seemed as if life was drained from them. No laserswords, no shots nothing, they were just dead.
Nymf looked up to the ski, night was falling. A cold wind came. Nymf just stood as nothing. Kept staring.
01-28-2006, 10:44 PM
Through vision still blurry from the anesthesia that HK-47 had given her,
Tysy tried to focus on the figures that stood before her. One had a clear
shock of jet-black hair and a square jaw. Male, she supposed, and
then her eyes turned to the veiled one, her shoulders squared. Female.
"Who are you?" asked this female. "Visas Marr's my name, but as for you,
you should just call me 'Madam'. I don't trust you enough to let you call me
by my name. What were you doing in the Trayus Core, killing Jedi, eh?"
"I was promised power," said Tysy, her voice thick and heavy. "I don't know
if Traya betrayed me by letting the Exile strike me down, or if I betrayed her
by failing to do that first. I--I wanted to be her apprentice, but I was not
worthy enough. I don't know...how did you save me, and why?"
"The Exile saved you," said Atton Rand with a harsh edge to his voice, "and
frankly, I don't know why he did that either. Maybe he had pity on you, or
more likely, he has a score to settle with you. Either way, you're none of
my concern. Correction--you're all of my concern, in that I'll keep
you from harming the Exile. Harm one hair on his head, and you're--"
"Atton!" Visas' tone was sharp. "This is Atton Rand, the bold, intrepid
pilot of the Ebon Hawk[. His mouth may be fresh, but so is his mind.
If he finds you're sneaking around on the ship--anytime, anywhere, and
by any means known to man--then he'll put you straight in a Force Cage."
"I understand." Tysy nodded. "I'm here to serve, not to kill."
Visas was touched, and some part of her felt vaguely sad. She had not been
so ready to accept her fate when the Exile defeated her. Why couldn't this
assassin be more cold-hearted, more loyal to the Sith, more easy to kill?
It was not that the Ebon Hawk didn't have enough room to transport
her, but still. Assassins were not welcome passengers aboard this ship.
After all, the Exile had almost been killed more times than Visas guessed
he could count. That wasn't going to happen again--not on her watch.
"Here he comes," she said sharply. "The Exile. I'll let him kill you." She stepped
back to let her Master pass, not keeping her veiled eyes off of the prisoner.
01-29-2006, 12:19 AM
"Now, now," a voice said calmly. "There's no need for killing." A strange young woman with curly blonde hair and dark blue eyes entered the medbay and looked down at Tysy. Then, she turned to the Exile.
"Exile," she addressed him, "surely you agree with me, yes?"
((Be extremely distrustful of her, all of you. None of you know her. In fact, you all must be wondering, is she a stowaway? She'll answer a few of your questions, but will leave others unanswered. :) ))
01-29-2006, 06:04 AM
"I agree with... wait a secod.. who the hell are you?" asked Steven drawing his pistol and held it by his side. "You weren't here when I joined the crew and far as I know this the only person we picked up from Malachor IV" He said pointing at Tysy
01-29-2006, 02:21 PM
The woman made a dismissive gesture with her hand and Steven's pistol flew out of his hand, thumping hard against the wall.
"No need for weapons," she said pleasantly. "I'm not here to harm anyone."
01-29-2006, 02:33 PM
Ryan turned suddenly and asked:
"Who are you? And what are you doing here?"
01-29-2006, 02:35 PM
Hk-47 walks up to see what all the comotion is about,
MMMM..... May I need to interject and stick everyone with anesthesia?
Meatbags are only for arguing while us Hk's do all the dirty work
01-29-2006, 02:36 PM
"My name is Crystal," the woman said pleasantly. "Crystal Gray. And as for why I'm here..." She gave a sort of amused chuckle, "... I have no idea."
01-29-2006, 02:56 PM
Nymf went out to from the Jedi Enclave, back to his ship, the Griffin.
He had heard rumors of The Exiles return, he feelt that he would like to talk to the Exile. Answers, he was looking for answers. Maybe the Exile knew what had happend to Revan, the dead Jedi Masters and other things.
He sat in the Griffin, thinking of where the Exile could be...
01-29-2006, 03:01 PM
"Okay..." Said Steven I hate it when jedi do that! "Fine, we'll drop you off at the next station.. Which I must ask, where are we going next?"
01-29-2006, 03:07 PM
"Now that I'm here, I have no intentions of leaving," Crystal said with a smile. "And Steven? I'm no Jedi."
((I know he didn't say it aloud, but she's a mind reader :) ))
01-29-2006, 03:13 PM
"Well it's obvious that you didn't have any intentions to ask if you could come." remarked Ryan "Which proves that you either are not here to be our friend." and he finished with sarcasm "Or you simply don't have any manners."
01-29-2006, 03:16 PM
"Or I came by accident," Crystal suggested.
01-29-2006, 03:19 PM
"It depends on since when have you been here." said Ryan like that he was posing a question.
01-29-2006, 03:26 PM
"No more than a few minutes," Crystal answered. She held up a hand. "I know that may sound strange to you, with us being in space and all, but it's the truth."
01-29-2006, 03:32 PM
Ryan frowned and looked at her.
"How do I know that you aren't a Sith?" asked Ryan suspiciously.
01-29-2006, 03:34 PM
"You're a Jedi, right?" Crystal asked. "Reach out and understand I have an extremely weak connection to the Force. I'm no Jedi. I'm no Sith."
01-29-2006, 03:43 PM
Ryan said coldly:
"That's why I am asking."
01-29-2006, 03:48 PM
"What do you mean?" Crystal asked. "Sith have the Force. Being a Jedi, you or some of your followers should understand that I do not. Wouldn't that automatically rule out the possibility of being Sith?"
01-29-2006, 03:52 PM
"But does it rule out the possibility of you being an assassin?" asked Ryan.
01-29-2006, 03:56 PM
Crystal's smile faded. "Look, if I were an assassin, one of you would be dead already. I don't play around on jobs. This is purely an accident."
01-29-2006, 03:58 PM
Ryan wanted to reply but he sighed and said sadly:
"I am sorry. I didn't mean to insult you."
01-29-2006, 04:03 PM
Crystal stared at him for a moment. "I think I'm seeing a problem here," she said quietly. "You're far too trusting. For all you know, I could be lying. I could be a great liar and you'd not know until it was too late."
She shook her head. "Don't worry about insulting me. You were doing good with all the demanding questions."
Then, she turned. "But that's hardly the point here." She glanced down at Tysy and turned back to Ryan. "Didn't it bother you in the slightest that I know who you are and yet you know nothing of me?"
01-29-2006, 04:28 PM
Hk turns to the intruder then back to his master....
Master, shall i take care of this menace?
or shall we put her in containment since you have no idea what she could be capable of....
01-29-2006, 04:54 PM
Ryan turned to HK and said pointing:
"HK, I already said it once; and I will say it again: When troubles come, I will ask for your help."
Ryan then turned to Crystal and asked:
"And what is it that you know of me?"
((You are right, Killwithhonor. It is amusing that someone is using HK :lol: ))
01-29-2006, 05:09 PM
( i know lol, even though i wont have alot of lines its still funny to have the random comments)
Is there anything else master?"
01-29-2006, 05:49 PM
"I know your past," Crystal answered cryptically, "I know your present, and I know fragments of your future."
01-29-2006, 05:51 PM
"To my understanding of what you meatbags are, that would represent a jedi, am i not?
01-29-2006, 06:03 PM
"Hk, dont you agree with me we should shove the stow-away in our air-lock if she doesnt leave willingly?" Said Steven. He didnt patically like people reading his mind. He beleaved that the mind was a personal think and should only be entered by another at their request or to extract info that would benifit others.
01-29-2006, 06:05 PM
"Yes, you are right HK. But there are several remarks that I would make." began Ryan, he paused for a moment and then continued:
"You most probably know my past, since you were around Kreia. My present is obvious. And I don't believe in fortune telling."
01-29-2006, 06:06 PM
((Uh, Vlad, Crystal doesn't look like she did then... last time you saw her, she had dark hair and blue-gray eyes. Now, she has blonde hair and dark blue eyes... not to mention she's shorter :) ))
01-29-2006, 06:06 PM
Ryan heard Steven's comment and replied:
"You know, I am starting to think that you were the one that acctuely made him."
01-29-2006, 06:13 PM
((Vladimir-Vlada, read my post above yours... you shouldn't be recognizing Crystal.))
01-29-2006, 06:18 PM
((Oh sorry. I didn't see that.))
01-29-2006, 06:22 PM
Crystal smiled. "I know your past because you know it. I agree, your present is fairly obvious. But fortune telling?" She laughed. "At any rate, I said fragments, not the whole thing. And you do know me... or at least you did."
She changed ever so slightly, first growing taller. Then, her hair darkened and straightened and her eyes faded.
"Telepath, telekintetic, shapeshifter, teleporter, and Force knows what else," she said, now looking and sounding like the Crystal Ryan would recognize.
01-29-2006, 06:43 PM
Tysy felt a growing sense of unease and dread. The longer that this absurd
exchange continued between the Exile, new crew-member Steven, HK, and
the mysterious blonde woman, the more insecure Tysy felt. She knew the
signs of an assassin. Showing up out of nowhere, trying to gain the trust
of her 'marks' before killing them as a sign of cleverness. If this Crystal
Gray had no intention of murdering anyone aboard the Ebon Hawk,
then it was definitely news to Tysy. She sat up, regaining her strength.
"Tikha," said the former Sith warriess sharply, meaning "Quiet!"
"Kto vy?" "Who are you really, and what are you doing among us?
How did you even board this ship? The last thing I remember, I was lying
dead in the Trayus Core, or almost dead, at least. I am a prisoner of the
Exile. I," and here her voice was darkly proud, "am Darth Dvukh.
If you've never heard the name, I was a servant and assassin of Traya.
"Your ways are quite familiar. Some of them were taught to me by the
Mistress of the Trayus Core herself!" Tysy smiled coolly at Crystal. "Whom
are you after? The Exile? I've changed my mind about killing him, so back off!"
01-29-2006, 06:46 PM
Ryan looked in shock as he recognised the young woman.
"You!" he said still in shock "I remember you! You were that Padawan on Dantooine who concnviced me to surrender. What are you doing here?"
"Who cares." began Atton pushing Ryan "She's just my type. But I don't know about the attitude, though."
Ryan rolled his eyes in annoyance.
01-29-2006, 06:51 PM
Crystal's eyes widened and with her control lost, her curly blonde hair and dark blue eyes and shorter height returned. "Tysy? My goodness you've changed! Then again, so've I, but..."
Shaking her head, she turned to Ryan. "We're in hyperspace, yes? I was trying to teleport myself to a station in orbit of the planet I was on when this ship flew past, jerking me rather abruptly aboard. As I said, it was unexpected, for me and for you all."
01-29-2006, 06:59 PM
"You what!?" Aske Steven, shaking his head. He didnt also didnt believe in teleportation either. He just couldn't understand how it was possible "Okay. Just tell us who you are! How can you teleport?"
01-29-2006, 07:03 PM
"I've told you," Crystal said patiently. "My name is Crystal Gray. Exile knows me, Tysy should, but doesn't remember me, which I'll attribute to brainwashing. As for teleportation, it's easier done than said..."
She vanished and reappeared instantly in the doorway. "Can't quite explain what I do, but that goes for a lot of the things I can do."
01-29-2006, 07:13 PM
"Cool. Have you ever tried going a bank job.."Steven shook his head. "I mean, I know your name but I want to know who you! Whats your history with Ryan? And why does everyone seem to refer to him as exile? It's really confusing.."
01-29-2006, 07:17 PM
"Wait..." Through a hazy fog in her mind, Tysy struggled to focus. "Crystal Gray?
My mysterious comrade, who helped to find that Holocron of Darth Revan's on Korriban? Thank goodness you weren't...killed..by our ranks. We Sith would have spared no one who hadn't turned to the Dark Side. How is it that you escaped,
or otherwise weaselled your way out of capture?" Tysy couldn't believe it.
"Tovarischa! My friend! How are you?" She held out her arms for a hug.
01-29-2006, 07:18 PM
Crystal glanced at Ryan before answering Steven. "You must be new to the crew..."
"Ryan was a Jedi," she said. "Exiled. Had a wonderful adventure worthy of being history holorecords... you get the idea, I hope. Not long after he was exiled, he returned to the Enclave. I was there with Tysy. He threatened us, though I know he meant no harm. Then, he ran. I chased him and we were captured by the Sith. We escaped separately and went our own separate ways. Haven't seen him since... until now."
Crystal accepted the hug. "Seems strange, doesn't it, Tysy? How far we've come... you a Sith, me a... well... me..." She chuckled, trying to figure out a way to describe herself.
01-29-2006, 07:33 PM
I know i am only supposed to respond to my master but do you think you could convince my master to get me a sense of humor chip? Maybe get me a happy chip too, i sometimes find myself being very not kind, or mean as you meat... humans would say, And yes we should throw this one in the airlock and tortue her but i guess thats just myself and you steven
01-29-2006, 09:16 PM
"Torture?" asked Tysy, her mouth gone suddenly dry. "I admire your ruthlessness.
However, killing a Sith prisoner would bring far more satisfaction to my captors
than mere torture. Especially for her, I think," she said, motioning toward Visas.
"I did not say I wanted anyone to torture you. However, if you try to attack
any one of us, torture will be the least of your punishments, Sith," Visas said.
"I--I was ordered to try and kill Ryan, whom I know as the Jedi Exile. How did
I come to serve Darth Traya, anyway? It was not she who turned me toward
the Dark Side. Rather, it was a rogue Sith Lord, playing by his own rules, upon
Korriban. He had an apprentice named Collus Drake, and it was Collus who
introduced me to the sheer damaging power of the Dark Side of the Force.
"It was only a matter of time before Traya recruited me. I was a smuggler
and interrogator, not a killer, helping to finance Sith war effort. I asked Traya,
'What use do you have for a lowly thief who thinks that murder for its
own sake is senseless and stupid?' Traya smiled and said, 'All the use in
the world, Tysyacha. Become one of my servants, and I will teach you.
"And she did. Torture me if you want, but I'd prefer to die." Tysy closed her eyes.
01-30-2006, 05:01 PM
If you would prefer to die then shall be it, master give me the word and i shal execute the hostile named Tysy
But by judging the tone of her voice, she does not really wish to die, she rather wishes to live, but for what purpose shall this be? I am catching on to your plan even though i am a robot of the Hk series, i still can sense what you have been doing, drawing us in till the right moment where you can execute us all
01-30-2006, 05:22 PM
"I think that Tysy needs to answer a few questions." began Ryan. "First of all, why are you an assassin?"
01-30-2006, 06:21 PM
"You'd rather she became a Murdur or Sith lord? Assassin are the easiest class to get into. Heck, they even expect people who can't even use the force" Steven pointed out.
01-30-2006, 06:38 PM
"But what is she doing with Sith Lords in the first place?" asked Ryan, making a remark.
01-30-2006, 06:44 PM
Tysy chuckled wryly. "Is that a veiled insult to my abilities, or
merely the truth?" She winked at this crew member who had
newly spoken up, name of Steven.
"Anyway, Traya wanted to test me, to give me a final challenge
that would prove whether or not I was worthy to be her apprentice
if the Exile died. So far, she had only heard of my smuggling and thieving exploits. Traya wanted to know if I had it in me to kill. 'No Sith is a
true Sith', she had explained to me, 'unless he has murdered at least
one sentient being in hot or cold blood.'
"I asked Traya why she wanted me to kill the Exile. 'Isn't he the one
you want?' I asked her. 'The one you love as living proof of your theory,
and the one you'd let the galaxy die for?' 'That is so', said Traya, 'but if
he fails this test, this challenge of defeating all who stand in his way
and want to slay him, then he is just as much a failure as the Jedi are.
Do you accept the test of my potential apprentice, Syscha, or not?'
'I accept', I answered sadly, 'but only if this proves I'm worthy of you.'
'Darth Dvukh', she said, and smiled, 'I have no more doubts about you.'
"Kreia should have doubted me. That's why I'm an assassin. I've failed."
She then turned to the Exile. "Why am I the bondservant of Sith Lords?
Through them, I've gained strength. Through the Jedi, I gained only
rejection and disillusionment. Vrook said I was not worthy to be his
Padawan, and I know now he was right. Why should I have settled
for such a menial and weak position, when Traya taught me to use
my passion for the sake of proving the Jedi Code to be flawed?"
01-30-2006, 06:55 PM
"You can now, because Vrook is now no different than me." answered Ryan. "Indeed, all the Jedi Masters survived, but now they will have to live how I lived. And they can now see, how I saw." Ryan finished codly.
01-30-2006, 07:18 PM
"In exile?" Tysyacha asked. "I see. Before you decide what to do with me,
I'd like to give you a short and simple list of my crimes. Seven armed robberies,
all done with a Sith-issue saberstaff with double ruby blades. I stole 2,000
credits per robbery, so that would make my total 14,000. Shall I die now? I've
never killed before, since I failed my Mistress's final test. What is my sentence?"
01-30-2006, 07:24 PM
"No. They are not in exile." began Ryan coldly and there were signs of happiness in his voice "They are echoes in the force. They hunger thorugh the Force. They are like me."
Ryan listened to the rest of Tysy's question and then he replied in sadness:
"I am not a Sith. And there will be no sentence." he paused for a moment and continued "There can't be... it's all over."
01-30-2006, 07:42 PM
"All over? That's a relief, but I--" Tysy remembered Darth Traya's black hood,
the one that perpetually covered her wasted white eyes. And that smile, that
cold, calculating smile, which planned the next move--and the next life--
that the Sith would take. To think! Tysy had been in the inner circle, an
apprentice, of that same Traya, and she wanted to cleanse her past.
"Could I serve time? Serve you, Exile, and thus try to atone for all the
wrongs I have done? I know it's too small a price to have to pay, but
you've known Traya. You personally know the damage her teachings
can do. Not only was I a vorovka, or a robber, but I also helped
Traya with strategy against the Jedi. It was not often that I helped
her in this way, but at certain times, I gave suggestions on how to
bring the Masters out of hiding. Especially Vrook...whom I hated."
01-30-2006, 07:47 PM
"As long as your hot friend stays. I vote for yes." said Atton. Ryan frowned at him.
"If you need any help just come and ask me." said Bao-Dur as he exited and went to the Cargo Hold.
"Now." began Ryan "As I was saying-"
"What's all the comotion here?"
Ryan looked at the sound and saw Mira enter the room.
"We have new members onboard."
"Again?" Mira rolled her eyes "Well, they're not sleeping with me." she answered and left.
"I am sorry for this kind of attitude. No ones perfect." apologised Ryan.
01-30-2006, 07:53 PM
"Never can ask them to be," Crystal said pleasantly.
01-30-2006, 08:04 PM
"Well I wouldn't say it like that." replied Ryan pleasantly as well "They're not bad. Believe me. They are just... frustrated."
"And I would like to relax myself with cards." said Atton approaching Crystal and looking at her seductively. He pulled out some cards and asked:
"How about that you and I have some fun playing Pazzak... Nar Shadaa style."
Ryan put his hand over his eyes and sighed, trying to calm himself down.
01-30-2006, 09:46 PM
"Nar Shadaa you say?" Master is it alright if i play some pazzak, if i win some money, i will be sure to give it too, you, also maybe in exchange, say i do get you some credits, will you get me a few parts that could make me like you humans, i feel like i am sometimes lost in conversations since i do not have any emotional feelings...
01-30-2006, 10:57 PM
Ryan, the Jedi Exile, felt a very slight touch on his knee. It was Tysy,
and she knelt down before him slowly, still wearing her Dark Jedi Knight
Robe. She had transferred her veil to her head, however, as a penitent
would. The Exile sat in the medbay, wondering what she was planning.
"As I pledged myself to Master Vrook as a Padawan; as I pledged myself
to Darth Traya as an assassin and future second-in-command; I pledge myself
to you now as a servant, a Padawan in name, but lower in status. I
wish to learn from you, Exile, as I am just as much of a banished one
as you are. We're both exiles--you from the Jedi Order, and I from the
favor and teachings of Darth Traya. The Force will hold me to this vow,
and I humbly proclaim it. Will you accept me as apprentice, Master?"
Tysy glanced up toward the Exile, and then she slid flat toward the ground.
Even Darth Traya would have been impressed, had she witnessed it. This was
no mere outcast of the Jedi Order, but the most powerful Force user since
Revan himself. Such a man deserved no less than complete obedience.
01-30-2006, 11:13 PM
Crystal looked Atton up and down and then very slowly shook her head. "You're not my type," she retorted, "and I don't gamble."
01-31-2006, 12:37 PM
Steven chuckled as he saw Attons hurt ego, Steven patted on the back and said to HK-47 "HK, Nar Shadaa style pazzaka is were, say someone loses a match they must remove an item of clothing, and your bassically naked as a wookiee"
01-31-2006, 02:10 PM
Atton looked at Crystal and smiled:
"Oh, come on. Live a little."
Ryan looked at Tysy in regret and sadness because the sight was too sad to be seen. He then pulled her up and said:
"You are not my servant Tysyacha. Nor will you be anyones. I will except you for training." then Ryan turned to Atton and said: "As long as Atton and the others don't have anything against it."
"Don't worry about me." replied Atton "As long as her friend stays, she is more than welcome."
Atton then turned to Crystal and said:
"Come on. What have you got to lose?"
01-31-2006, 02:12 PM
Crystal grimaced. "You are about the most vulgar person I've ever met." Seriously annoyed, Crystal turned to leave. "Oh, by the way, Atton? You live enough for all of us..."
With that, she left the room.
01-31-2006, 02:22 PM
When Atton said "Come on. What have you got to lose?"
Steven replied "Her dignity, self-respect and her clothes." He turned to Tysy "As long as she doesnt try to kills us, send our where-abouts to the sith or cheat at pizzak, she's welcome."
01-31-2006, 02:25 PM
Atton snuffed in annoyance and said confidently:
"She digs me."
Atton then turned around and he bumped into Ryan who was pretty mad.
"You are a jerk, you know."
Atton grimaced and said:
"Atton, what the hell is wrong with you?" critisized Ryan "Do you always behave like this?"
Atton thought a little and said:
"I want you to go and apologise, right away." said Ryan angirly.
"Why?" asked Atton.
"Because if you really like her that much, you would just ask her for a dinner or something else." explained Ryan as calmly as he could.
"What makes you think that?" asked Atton ironicly.
"Maybe if you thought about it a little, you could do it better." answered Ryan and left to follow Crystal. He came to her and said:
"I wish to apologise for Atton's behaviour. I promise thatit will never happen again."
01-31-2006, 02:27 PM
Atton just noticed the comment Steven gave him and said:
"But what is wrong with the clothes part?"
01-31-2006, 02:31 PM
"Unlike you I respect females. They play pizzak like pros and I would hate to see you lose" Steven shruddered "So wheres the next stop?"
01-31-2006, 02:38 PM
"When did I lose at pazzak?" asked angirly Atton.
"Never mind. We are going to-" Atton began but he stopped.
"I don't know. There are no coordinates initiated."
01-31-2006, 02:51 PM
"Well I'll go find out then" Steven jogged to Ryan and Crystal.
"I wish to apologise for Atton's behaviour. I promise thatit will never happen again." He heard Ryan tell Crystal.
"Not promise what you can't make happen. By the way where are we going next?"
01-31-2006, 04:18 PM
Ryan turned to Steven and began:
"We are going to-" Ryan suddenly stopped. He paused for several seconds and his eyes were as blank as white cotton. He didn't know where to go, because everything is lost now. He then finished:
"To Dantooine." he finished trying to hide his desperation "We'll be there in about several hours."
01-31-2006, 04:34 PM
Crystal cringed slightly. "You don't know where to go," she told Ryan quietly. "Were it not written all over your face, I'd still have picked up on it... you throw your thoughts around, feeling safe in it, not realizing that you throw them right at me!"
She shook her head. "I'm not making much sense, am I?"
01-31-2006, 04:48 PM
Ryan looked at Crystal confused:
"What are you talking about?"
01-31-2006, 04:49 PM
"Nope" He replied to crystal. Steven then replied to Ryan by saying "Why? What's at dantooine apart from scavangers and the farms? The place is boring. Kashyyk or Mustafar is a much more interesting place."
01-31-2006, 04:50 PM
Crystal closed her eyes for a moment, thinking. Then, she said, "I'm a telepath... I already told you that. You have Force barriers, but they are ineffective against a telepath. Your mind throws thoughts around that a Force sensitive won't catch, but a telepath will."
She opened her eyes. "That's how I know you're unsure where you should go next."
01-31-2006, 04:56 PM
"And do you know why am I unsure where to go next?" asked Ryan trying to keep himself together "Tell me. You are a telepath. Why am I unsure?"
01-31-2006, 05:04 PM
Hk looked at Crystal like she was crazy twisting his head then he gradually starts to speak..
"What about you? Arent you unsure of what to do next? you obviously have no plans so that would make you like the rest of us except me, my only plan is to server my master until he lets me go or until he dies.........And your telepath gig is really getting old, even as an HK, i know that you are not a telepath, otherwise you would have reacted before Aton acted upon asking you to play some pazzak since all he has been doing is staring at you for the past couple minutes like a picture on a wall.
01-31-2006, 05:18 PM
Ryan noticed what HK said and told him:
"Good point! I never thought of that."
01-31-2006, 05:30 PM
Crystal's eyes narrowed at HK. "In case you hadn't noticed, sentients usually prefer speaking before being answered... it sort of throws them off if you answer before their question was asked. And in the case of Atton, you may have noticed I shuddered slightly before he spoke... I knew what he was thinking. Besides, given what he was thinking of, I think it was much more enjoyable for me to wait for him to answer the question and then slap him down."
01-31-2006, 05:36 PM
"Maybe more amsuing to you humans but still not convincing, if you lie about that what else may you be lieing about?
01-31-2006, 05:44 PM
Crystal seemed confused. "What am I lying about?" She turned to Ryan. "I can read sentients, but the minds of machines and sentients aren't compatible."
01-31-2006, 06:26 PM
Lying about ebing able to read minds, how do we know? If you lie to us about that what else may you lie about in the future, i know this since i am catching no kinds of waves at all, my new machinery has been updated to track and listen to any kind of activity through waves and telepathacy is one of them
01-31-2006, 06:32 PM
Crystal laughed. "I expect your machinery is designed to catch Force-originating telepathy," she said. "Mine is something different... I've been to the Jedi. They can only feel when I prod their minds. They don't understand it, droid, so don't expect that you can."
01-31-2006, 06:48 PM
Master, May i kill this one? I feel she is a threat to me! SHe must be elimated...........emediatley!
Hk took out his 2 heavy blasters
"I know this isnt like me but, (In a deep tone voice) Dont expect that you can dodge this with your so called "ability"
01-31-2006, 06:56 PM
"Oh, switch off!" Crystal snapped at HK. "Put those away. Now or I'll switch you off... from here! Maybe then you'll believe I can do the things I claim."
She turned to Ryan, now obviously annoyed. "Is your droid always so... annoying?"
01-31-2006, 07:03 PM
"I only take drastic measures humans find it amusing to insult my kind, i find it very insulting, if i could i would silence you...But i wont, atleast not today"
Hk put away his enormous guns, and walked to the workshop, he was working on some parts that he could attach to himself, its a gun on his shoulder that would focus in on the target and accuratley eliminate the enemy
01-31-2006, 07:04 PM
"HK, don't bug our guest. It isn't polite." said Ryan kindly to HK and then he turned to Crystal.
"What?" asked Ryan noticing her face expresion "Hey! I this droid isn't mine. I didn't make it, I only repaired it. And I don't know why is he like that."
01-31-2006, 07:08 PM
"Alright, then," Crystal sighed. "Why'd you keep him around if you agree he's so annoying..." Then, she nodded. "I get it... he's only annoying sometimes. At others, he's quite useful, yes?"
01-31-2006, 07:08 PM
"I can hear you master, if you do not want me, then you tell me so otherwise you must maintain me"
Hk went back to working on his gadgets, it was wierd Hk had a whole new side to him since the last time the crew had a talk among them, Hk barely had anything to say but now he is chalk full of words
01-31-2006, 07:13 PM
"You see, I keep HK out of reasons that concern humanity." began Ryan "Why do I keep Atton even if I want to pull his head off? Because he is a person. Same with HK. He is a person and I understand that."
01-31-2006, 07:15 PM
"Correction Master, Almost human, i feel i need to contribute more, thats why im working on all these new gadgets to help me understand you all more"
01-31-2006, 09:17 PM
Tysy stayed silent. She was nowhere near a telepath like Crystal, or even
a unique and dangerous threat to the Jedi, like the Exile had been. However,
this did not mean that the former Darth Dvukh had no sensitivity to the
stronger pulls of the Force. She felt a presence call to her from the cargo
hold, where the store of emergency supplies was kept. Glad that Crystal,
Atton, the Exile, Steven, and HK-47 all seemed to be distracted, Tysy
snuck back toward the storage compartment. She wasn't hungry...
...except for information. Among the packages of freeze-dried meat,
vegetables, and bread, she saw a tiny silver cube. A Holocron?
she thought. No. Sith Holocrons glow red, and this one isn't red.
However, this is some sort of comlink or communication device.
Gingerly, she flicked it on, and the holographic blue image of a tall
woman with white hair quickly crackled into view. The woman spoke:
"Exile," the woman said. "I need your help. Rather, I'm begging you
for it, as I sorely regret my previous arrogance toward you. I admit
that I was far more fit to be Darth Traya than I imagined. The Sith
Holocrons in my Telos prison are corrupting my nature even further.
I will soon be dead, even in my youthful age. Please...hear me out.
"I never truly heard you when I listened to you at your trial.
Your testimony was strong, and it shook me to the very core. I
would have followed you and Darth Revan to war, had I not been
blinded by my fanatical obedience to what I thought were the
tenets of the Jedi Code. I cared more about protecting my own
reputation than serving true justice, and I'm paying the price.
"You must help me, if you know what the galaxy is up against!
Kreia was evil to the core, wishing to destroy the Force, and
thus destroy all of life, unwittingly or not. The True Sith are
those of her kind, and they've sent spies to our planets. The
Republic is not safe, and if the True Sith are not stopped,
it never will be. What is their nature? Here's what I've gleaned...
"They worship Kreia's teachings, yet they are more like Nihilus,
and this time they draw upon those who are not Force-sensitive
as well as those who are. The Holocrons have offered to spare
my life, in order that I might join the True Sith. I've refused,
remembering you, Exile. I know where some spies might be found.
"Set a course for Kashyyk, the home of the Wookiees. Chuundar's
legacy has not been forgotten, and some are still loyal to him. I
want you to find out if there is a plot against Freyyr's descendants
to abandon the ways of their noble great-grandfather. Humans are
allowed to march boldly on Kashyyk, but why? I must go now. It is...
unwise...to try and hide my plans from the Holocrons. They want
you and me. They want her. They want everyone as True
Sith, or as living food to quench their hunger. Traya still lives!"
The hologram of Atris faded. Tysy bolted from the cargo hold,
intending to show her newest discovery straight to the Exile.
02-01-2006, 10:14 AM
((Puh, been a lot to read :D, im a bit tired after reading, you havent landed on a planet yet, right?))
Nymf still didn't knew where to go, he sat in his cockpit and went through places he knew the Exile had been to. Peragus (sp?), Onderon, Nar shadaa, Telos, Korriban and Dantooine, The Ebon Hawk seemed to be out of reach for him. Unfoundable.
02-01-2006, 06:32 PM
On his way to his bunk he was ran into by the new crew menber. When they collided the holocron fell out of Tysy's hands and steven was pushed backwards where he tripped on the holocron. "ahhh! What in Revan's name?" He leaned fowards to grapped the holocron before Tysy could and he activated and watched Atris speach "Where did you get this?"
02-01-2006, 06:42 PM
Ryan watched the holocron along with Steven. After that, Ryan thought a little and then came to a decision:
"We will go and help the Wookies. But only about this problem... After that." he paused for a few moments "We will go somewhere where I don't think most of you will agree on."
02-01-2006, 07:56 PM
Hk turned his head slightly to the left and spoke,
"Where would this be master?"
02-02-2006, 09:09 AM
Ryan turned to HK. He paused for a moment and then only wnet off to the cockpit. He answered in silence.
02-02-2006, 01:01 PM
Steven and Hk exchanged confused looks and Steven pulled himself up and followed Ryan "Hey cap, what part of Kashyyk are we heading?"
02-02-2006, 06:30 PM
After the exchange of words on board the Ebon Hawk, the comm sounded. T3 answered and patched it through.
A tall willowy woman with dark hair highlighted blond with amber colored eyes spoke firmly in a gentle voice, "Is this the Ebon Hawk? If so I have come in search of the Exile. The reason being is that Revan sent me to find him."
Silence continued throughout the cockpit and the entire ship.
"I will accompany you to the next star port so I will be able to explain better. You may call me Michaela."
02-02-2006, 06:40 PM
Ryan looked at the hologram that appeared. He blinked in confussion, not being able to determine what was the meaning of this. He crouched and thought deeply. He wasn't certain about this.
"Are you a programmed hologram?" he asked curiously.
02-02-2006, 07:15 PM
"No I am not," Michaela replied. I am from a system in the Unknown Regions and my people are very good at finding things. I am an Avalonian warrior trained in the Jedi arts by someone you may be familiar with, Jolee Bindo. I came because Revan sent me and I sensed a presence that is confused and has a taint of darkness, one that is a prisoner."
02-04-2006, 11:03 AM
"Ryan!" Shouted Steven "We've arrived at Kashyyk! Where are we docking?" He walked into the room and saw Michaela "What the hell!? How did she get on here?"
02-04-2006, 12:12 PM
You will not do anything to our exile, that is my job to hurt, no urs, you meatbag intruder
Armed and ready master, hostile dies in 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, say goodbye.........
02-04-2006, 02:34 PM
With a force of energy the assassin machine was sent into the bulkhead but no movement was required of Michaela. She looked at the crumpled machine as it struggled to regain its footing. She then stared at evryone and said, "I come with a message from Revan for the ears of the Exile only. I also sense an injured presence on board, one who suffered at Malachor. Enough said, I come to join you because now that I found you Ryan I will not let you out of my sight for great danger lies ahead."
