The Dark Lord suddenly jerked back as a strong power unleashed itself over Ossus. He could feel it well. Well enought that a pain rushed throught his chest like an old, rusty knife. He slumped back but placed his foot down so he wouldn't fall the whole way. He grunted and looked at Charna before rushing out with a simple "Take over" as his last words. At that instance, the Colonel followed his Lord out while the captain of the ship walked to Charna to inform her of the Ragnarok's travel to Ossus.
Tepe walked swiftly to a small, private room and set himself down with his back to the small window showing the planet Kamino and the fight going on around it. He fell into a deep meditation. The Colonel opened the door but after seeing his Lord, he left and ordered two guards not to let anyone disturb the meditation. He himself would also be standing on watch. The Dark Lord could sence the power emitting from Strider, and sighed
"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."
- Carl Sagan
