The Hunt for the Sith Hunter
There is an old legend that tells of warriors known as the Sith Hunters. They fought the Sith nearly to extinction before being killed off one by one. A thousand years after they were killed, one of them was rediscovered... very much alive and appearing to be no more than nineteen years old. The Sith created them and slowed their aging process. They cannot die of age.

Riebe Sothe continued to help the Jedi after she was found, training a young woman named Caitlin Bryce in the way of the Jedi. Caitlin went on to train Erica West and begin training Nadira DelCarr.

Riebe did as the Jedi Council requested of her even through the Clone Wars. She served the Republic in any way she possibly could. When the Emperor took over, she vanished without a trace. Shortly before the destruction of the Death Star, she reappeared again and was in an X-Wing as the gigantic space station was destroyed.

Not long after that, Riebe came into contact with Caitlin Bryce and Erica West, who had also survived the Jedi Purge. After the destruction of the second Death Star, Nadira was also discovered to have lived through the Purge. Instead of agreeing to help Luke Skywalker with his new Jedi Academy, Riebe returned to the Watchtower, the planet without a name she'd spent a great deal of time on since vanishing the first time.

While on this planet, Riebe discovered that she was not the only Sith Hunter to have survived. But she was unwilling to believe that this man, Craig, was truly who he claimed to be. She called him a clone and fled. Since then, she has not been seen.

Now, Nadira DelCarr sits alone in a dirty cantina, glancing at the chronometer from time to time. Finally, she glanced at the door as Erica West entered through the front door.

"I'm glad you could make it," Nadira said quietly. "Tell me, do you know if Caitlin is coming also?"

"She was on my heels," Erica answered. Sure enough, Caitlin Bryce came to the table only seconds later. Nadira nodded slowly.

"I've invited a few others," she said. "When they arrive, I'll explain why we're here."

((All the old ROTSH post away!))

It didn't take long for Craig to arrive. His sleek red starfighter, the Ragnarok (Anyone who plays FF8 knows what it looks like. Think that, but heavily armed to the teeth :p ) came to a smooth landing to a pad nearby. A black-cloaked man walked out and arrived near the group.

"Hello ladies," He said in a calm voice, smiling at them. His hood was down, his silver hair shining and his blue eyes almost penetrating the dim light of the cantina. "I'm sure my attire is..appropriate for this search, just try not to lose me." He continued with a smirk. He gave Erica and Caitlin a warm smile, "It'll be a pleasure to work alongside two fine Jedi once more." He added.

Caitlin broke into a smile when she heard the familiar voice. She rose immediately and gave Craig a hug. "It's so good to see you again." Then, she pulled away and looked into his eyes. "But search?" She looked at Nadira. "What are we searching for?"

"Let's wait a few more minutes," Nadira answered. "See if anybody else shows up. Then, I'll talk."

"So what have you been up to recently, Craig?" Erica asked, motioning for the Sith Hunter to have a seat.

jokemaster 08-15-2005 11:52 PM

The door opened, then closed. A man that looked 30 walked in and sat in the booth behind Nadira. He ordered a drink, and appeared to relax.

Curt-Man 08-16-2005 11:43 AM

Curt was on his way to the cantina on his speeder bike when some 'old friends' started to chase him. He led them all the way to the cantina. Curt jumped off the bike and bolted right in. He drew his pistol and hid around the corner from the door. The men slowly walked in, But Curt was to fast and smart for them, he put a blaster bolt in all three of thier backs.
"Sorry about the mess" Curt said then flicked some credits at the bartender. Curt sat down with the group.
"Howdy!" Curt said with a big smile.

Writer 08-16-2005 01:52 PM

"You always did love a grand entrance," Caitlin laughed. "Now what might you have been up to recently?"

((Also waiting for Craig's response to the same question...))

Curt-Man 08-16-2005 04:14 PM

"Hey that was unintentional, i just knew that i would have to pay the least here for death clean up. Not much, just doing my thing, which is confidential." Curt winked.

Flamehart 08-16-2005 07:06 PM

Craig smiled fondly at Caitlin's greeting, then nodded, "I'll let Nadira explain." He said simply, then turned to Erica, "Not much really, at least not much that's very fascinating to delve into an explanation for. I'd bore you all to sleep with stories of what happened during my time of...absence, for lack of a better word." He said, smiling. He understood that although they would be glad to hear the stories anyway, they were for another time, as they had more important issues at hand.

Writer 08-18-2005 04:28 PM

((JM, I'm going to assume your character is not to be 'noticed' until later... that ok? ))

"We'll pry your stories from you later," Nadira told Craig. "But now to business." She paused for a moment. "The Sith Hunter, Riebe Sothe has been missing for at least a year, as I'm sure you all know. But the reason I have called you here is that I get the feeling all of us want to find her."

She let that sink in before continuing. "In my travels, I've come across some rather interesting individuals... and they put me on the trail of our missing Sith Hunter."

"Where is she?" Caitlin demanded. Nadira held up a hand.

"I didn't call you here because I know where she is," she said. "Caitlin, she trained you and I can only assume you learned some things about her that the rest of us wouldn't know. Craig, you are also a Sith Hunter and therefore know much more about her distant past than the rest of us. Erica, you were trained by Caitlin longer than I was and therefore had more contact with her master. Curt, I asked for you because you seem to have the most access to recent history that might involve Riebe."

"So we are to search for her," Erica said. Nadira nodded.

"She's left us one clue after another," she said. "She knows that, if we get the right group together, we'll be able to find her and if we can find her, we are who we claim to be. Craig, this includes you. When we find her, she might be more willing to believe you are who you claim to be."

Flamehart 08-18-2005 06:25 PM

"Pry as you wish, but it'll be like borrowing food from a starving Rancor." He said with a grin. "Of course, but there'll have to be more proof given. Thoughts, memories, and speech are easily emulated over to a cloned person. It's my actions and choices that will have to reveal to her who I really am." He said with a more firm tone.

jokemaster 08-21-2005 04:13 PM

((Yeah, I just ask that you give my char some of the answers.))
The man carefully listened, but said nothing.

Curt-Man 08-21-2005 04:59 PM

"yep, i can find anything on anyone unless they cover their tracks as well as i do." Curt said slyly

Writer 08-22-2005 07:56 PM

((JM, that can be how we first take notice of you... care to have the first question? :) It's coming up soon.))

Nadira nodded. "I think we'd best get started. Follow me."

She stood and led them out of the cantina.

jokemaster 08-22-2005 08:29 PM

((Sure ))
The man waited a few moments, then paid and left.

Flamehart 08-22-2005 08:39 PM

Craig followed closely behind. He knew the underlevels were dangerous, and something else seemed to have been on his mind that he wasn't telling them, that made him seem to be more protective than he normally was.

Curt-Man 08-22-2005 09:51 PM

Curt followed the women.

((no helmet this time :p))

jokemaster 08-22-2005 10:12 PM

((Secret twist 'bout Craig?))

Flamehart 08-22-2005 10:59 PM

((Yeah. All that time off the face of the boards suddenly either made my character transparent to Curt-Man's sight, or he got a sex change I was not aware of.

That's really... REALLY...

Writer 08-23-2005 12:07 PM

(( :eek: ))

Nadira led the way to a nearby lift. When the entire party was inside, she directed it downward, stopping it forty levels down from where they started. When it stopped, she left it and went directly to a small door nearby. With a short glance at the others, she knocked. A small light came on over the door.

"Identify," a voice said.

"Nadira DelCarr."

"You have companions," the voice said. "They must wait here while you enter."

The door slid open, but was shut immediately after Nadira entered. Caitlin stared at the door for a moment before turning to Craig.

"Now might be a good time for one of your stories," she said quietly.

jokemaster 08-23-2005 12:37 PM

The man jumped on top of the elavator and hung on. When it stopped, he waited a few moments, then silently slid down into it, and hid in a corner.

Curt-Man 08-23-2005 10:31 PM

((i meant he was walking after the women but ahead of craig :p))

"i have a bad feelign about this."

jokemaster 08-23-2005 10:38 PM

(([raspy voice] And that is why you don't leave the boards[/raspy voice]

Writer 08-23-2005 11:12 PM

"She'll be fine," Caitlin said confidently. "Don't worry, she knows how to take care of herself. Now, Craig, if you don't mind giving us a story while we wait?"

Flamehart 08-24-2005 07:22 PM

Craig shrugged, "I could tell many things. I will tell you this for the moment though. I've stirred up a lot of trouble down here in the past. I'm not the one to normally say this, especially to two well trained such as yourself, but please be careful, and if for at any reason someone tries to come after me, do not try to help out. They're only after me, and there's no need to involve any of you." He finished in a low tone. Then after awhile he shrugged, "So some stories from beyond the edge of known space? Well I'll tell you this, you think hyperspace piracy is bad here.. the creature's that catch you out there are twice as nasty. You'd be suprised how well living outside of known civilization makes you a bit more threatening, even without laser weapons and resistant armor." He said with a slight smirk. "Nothing I couldn't handle but it was definately something new."

Writer 08-24-2005 07:41 PM

"Well then, I think we can be happy we have you to tell us these things rather than being required to endure them ourselves," Erica laughed. The door slid suddenly open and Nadira flew out from the opening as though she had been thrown and landed in a heap against the opposite wall.

"Damn," she muttered, sitting up as Caitlin and Erica rushed over to her.

"What happened?" Caitlin demanded. "Can you stand? Are you alright?"

"Yes, I can stand and, yes, I'm alright," Nadira answered. Caitlin helped her to her feet and she sighed. "What can I say? I went in, talked to somebody I couldn't see, and told this person who my companions were."

"That may not have been a good idea," Caitlin muttered. Nadira ignored her.

"So then, the person asked me what I wanted," she went on. "I said we were looking for Riebe."

"Another potential bad idea," Erica whispered.

"The voice asked me a question... where had I last heard something of Riebe?" Nadira continued. "I explained and this," she held up a datapad, "popped out of the floor into my hand and I was quite literally ejected from the room."

"What's the pad?" Caitlin asked. Nadira looked at it.

"It's a map."

"Of where?" Erica demanded. Nadira frowned.

"It's of this building," she answered. "We have to go down another ten levels."

She glanced at the lift and then at the rest of the party. With a sigh, she led the way back to the lift and pressed the button to open the doors.

((JM's char is probably frantically scrambling back on top of the lift :p ))

jokemaster 08-24-2005 07:43 PM

The man grinned when Craig told them not to help out if they came for him. Seemed the old friends were alike.

((EDIT: DAMMIT I post and now you post. And he'd back up back to the elevator the moment Nadira got thrown out))
The man scrambled up, and made it, if only because the shoddy making of the building meant there was no cover to the access hole.

Curt-Man 08-24-2005 10:51 PM

"Into the depths..." Curt said seriously.

Writer 08-25-2005 11:27 AM

The lift doors opened and the party entered it. The door closed and the lift went down another ten levels. When it opened again, Nadira glanced at the map and stepped out. She led them down a long corridor and then made a right turn. Another long corridor and they stopped at a door.

"It seems to indicate this room," she said. She approached the door and it opened. With a frown, she stepped through. This room was dark and Nadira stopped as soon as there was enough room for everybody to stand inside the room. The door closed, leaving them in complete darkness.

"Who enters this room?" a voice called. It sounded like Riebe and Caitlin gasped. Could their search be this easy.

"Nadira DelCarr, Erica West, Caitlin Bryce, Craig, and Curt," Nadira answered. There was a moment of silence.

"There is another listening from outside," the voice announced. The door opened. "Let him enter."

jokemaster 08-25-2005 02:35 PM

Theman was taken aback for a moment, then decided to go in.

Writer 08-25-2005 03:20 PM

The door slid smoothly shut just behind the man and low level lights came on throughout the room. The group turned to look at the newcomer, but before they could say anything, Riebe's voice spoke again.

"Introduce yourself," it said. "It seems you're interested in joining the group, so you should all get to know one another. After all, you've been following them since they came together."

jokemaster 08-25-2005 03:26 PM

"All right, I'm Roma." He said simply.

Writer 08-25-2005 03:33 PM

"Well, that's a start, I suppose," the voice said slowly. "Somehow, I get the feeling you won't be opening up much more than that. Therefore, we'll be getting on to business."

"We've been directed here..." Caitlin begin.

"By the map," the voice interrupted. "I know. You must answer a question."

"And what would that be?" Erica wondered.

"Riebe Sothe was the last Sith Hunter to be declared dead," the voice said. "Who was the one just before her?"

((JM, that would be your Sith Hunter character... Jokemaster... Jack, wasn't he?))

jokemaster 08-25-2005 04:05 PM

"Jokemaster." He answered immediately.

Writer 08-25-2005 07:21 PM

There was a long silence before Riebe's voice was heard again. "And how would the newcomer of the group know that?" The voice sounded extremely suspicious.

jokemaster 08-25-2005 07:26 PM

"I know my history."

Writer 08-25-2005 07:51 PM

"The history of the Sith Hunters is broken," the voice growled. "Many pieces are missing. I should have expected Craig to come up with that answer as he is from that time period."

"Do we really have to go through this?" Caitlin pleaded. "He knows..."

"Yes," Riebe's voice cut in. "Yes, we must."

Flamehart 08-25-2005 07:56 PM

Craig looked at the newcomer, as he was just about to answer that question himself, but he wasn't quite too sure, as he didn't know if he was thought dead before or after Jokemaster. He examined the man for a minute, "You must have known him." he said slowly, analyzing the man slowly, "Either that, or you're one of those people who hunt and learn history just for the sake of knowing it."

jokemaster 08-25-2005 08:43 PM

Roma's smile faltered as Riebe said that the sith hunters' history was broken, but recovered quickly. He shrugged.
"My grandfather was a fan. "

Writer 08-25-2005 09:13 PM

"More like your great great grandfather," was the dry observation. "Craig, do you know this man?" A slight pause. "You're not a cloner, are you? Not the ones who created a clone of Arina, perhaps?"

Flamehart 08-25-2005 10:09 PM

Craig shook his head, "I don't, sorry," he said dismally. He apparently wasn't too sure of the newcomer himself.
