((This is the story of what could have happened if the Hero of Tython hadn't been born in Republic space.))
Harrower-class Dreadnaught Oppressor
"This ends now."
The Lord of the Sith who had managed to destroy Uphrades and now threatened Tython, the ancestral world of the Jedi smiled at the two Jedi Masters who now dared to confront him.
Bela Kiwiiks, the Togruta Jedi Master of the padawan Kira Carsen and Master Orgus Din slowly circled the Sith Lord with lightsabers ignited and ready for battle. After Kira managed to secure the blueprints of the planet prison back on Coruscant they had managed to find out what this new Lord of the Sith was planning.
The destruction of the Republic itself. They had been one step behind the Sith Lord since the beginning but they had finally caught up with him here: in the Tython system. Many lives had been lost in the pursuit, but the super-weapons that had brought all of this about had been either recaptured or destroyed.
And now after battling their way through the Dreadnaught, they finally had a chance to stop this threat once and for all.
"You truly think you have a chance against me?"
Orgus and Bela didn't answer him as they continued circling their opponent as they searched for him weak spots. They knew what this man was capable of, what he had done and they knew that there was no chance of redeeming him.
"Nothing to say?" The sith taunted. "Very well, a silent death it will be."
The sith unleashed a stream of force lightning at the two Jedi Masters who barely managed to catch it one their respective lightsaber blades. Orgus managed to switch his lightsaber to his left hand and used his right hand to unleash a wave of force energy that caused the Sith to falter for a brief moment that Bela was able to take advantage of by force jumping at him.
"A valiant attempt. But it won't work." The sith laughed as he caught the Togruta in mid-air with the force and slammed her into one of the bulkheads with a good amount of force that knocked her out cold.
"You're next." The sith smiled as he turned towards Orgus only to see that the Jedi Master had somehow managed to vanish.
"You can't hide Jedi. I will find you." He laughed darkly. The laugh stopped abruptly as red lights began to flash and alarms began to wail throughout the ship as explosions began to shake the ship. A holographic figure formed above a projector. "Lord Rothor! We've been sabotaged! Someone managed to plant explosives throughout the ship and the reactor has been critically damaged! We can't keep up with the damage reports that are coming in!"
"How long until you can repair the weapon?" Rothor asked, his pale eyes flashing with rage.
"We can't! The ship has been too badly damag-!" The engineer's voice was cut off as his hands went to his neck as Rothor raised his hand and closed his fist.
"I do not tolerate failure." Rothor said quietly as the engineer stopped moving and hit the ground with a thud.
The Dreadnaught continued to shake as explosions continued to rock the vessel as more and more explosives detonated throughout the ship.
Rothor looked up as a voice cut through the comn channels. "I hope your having fun up there." A female voice taunted. Rothor narrowed his eyes. "Carsen. I should have known Din and Kiwiiks would sneak you on board. It doesn't matter though. I will find you and Din. Your Master has already been incapacitated and captured."
"Really?" Kira's smug voice caught Rothor by surprise. "Have you taken a closer look?"
Rothor whirled around and saw the prone form of the Jedi Master laying on the floor, but as he looked closer at her he saw her form flicker slightly.
"It's been fun, but It's time for us to leave. You won't escape this time, Lord Rothor, Master Orgus already has Master Kiwiiks and I've placed explosives all around the hyperdrive." There was a slight click as though a button was being pressed.
No...I won't die like this." Rothor growled as he turned and headed for the hanger. He continued on even as Kira's voice echoed through the ship again. "Of course right now your probably heading for the hanger in an attempt to escape so that's why I've recorded this message."
A recording?! Rothor's eyes widened in shock as he saw a small Republic shuttle fly past a view port and soar towards Tython.
"I wish it could have ended differently, but you are beyond redemption. You've killed so many and you've ruined so many lives. Goodbye Lord Rothor.
Rothor let out a roar of rage as the explosives around the Oppressor's
hyperdrive detonated and the ship was consumed in a massive fireball. The last thing Rothor saw was a wave of fire surging towards him.
"Is she going to be alright?"
Orgus looked over the unconscious form of Bela Kiwiiks and checked the medical readings that were monitoring her.
"She should be alright." Orgus said quietly as the shuttle rocked slightly from the shock-wave produced from the explosion.
"We didn't have a choice." Kira said as she sensed the regret coming from Master Orgus. "He was threatening to destroy Tython and he's killed more than his fair share of Jedi."
"I know." Orgus said quietly. "But I can't help but think what would have happened if he had been a Jedi."
"He could have served the Galaxy brilliantly."
