Tysyacha could not have been more grateful, or more relieved, that the subject of Juhani's thoughts had shifted from her "mistake" to that of the rusty, rude, and utterly ready assassin droid. When she told the Cathar that yes, the parts to reactivate HK-47 were also located in the cargo hold (in the same canister with all the training droids, just in case), T3-M4 suddenly flashed his eye.

He let out a loud stream of beeps, tweedles, chirps, dwirps, and Brank! Brank's! that could only mean one thing: he was cursing a blue streak.

"T3!" the Exile cried, rushing over to him and hugging him like she would a child who was throwing a temper tantrum. "This is only for training purposes. Juhani here wants to test her skill against him in case she has to fight some Jedi--or Sith--in the course of our journey." After letting out his millionth worried dwoooo, he suddenly acted as if he remembered something...or someone. Uncertainly, he wheeled himself toward Juhani.

"Eerp?" he asked, an introduction of sorts, trying to focus his eye on the Cathar's face. He was an old droid and getting older, and yes, even droids' memories failed them from time to time. Nevertheless, T3 was sure...

"This is only for training purposes. Juhani here wants to test her skill against him in case she has to fight some Jedi--or Sith--in the course of our journey."

"That...is not quite true. I did travel with the droid as well...and to be fair I did miss his unique brand of humor. I would like to speak with him. Besides, he may recognize me."

"Eerp?"

Juhani turned toward T3 and smiled gently as she knelt down on one knee in front of him. "I wasn't going to say anything T3...You remember me don't you? You remember chasing Carth around the Hawk with your shock arm as well, correct?"

She took a closer look at him. "What happend to you T3? I promise you...as soon as I get the credits...I promise I'll fix you...a complete diagnostic followed by an overhaul."

She sighed and looked up at the Exile. "So much has changed...so much is different now. This little droid used to be able to outrun...well, outwheel anyone."

"Anyway, I've got to get back to work. Good hunting, and good luck."

Gelvik opened his mouth to reply, but the comm clicked off. He sighed and deactivated the comm as well. It was probably time to get moving anyway. At least he'd enjoyed the conversation.

He pulled the hyperspace throttle back, and the Basalisk roared into the stars.

I'll be able to talk to her again...I'll have to send back a report sometime soon...

He found himself feeling a happiness that he had not felt in long time, and he was basking in it. Gelvik smiled and leaned back in his chair, now he'd just have to wait...

"He still can," Tysyacha giggled. "Without the Force, I'm a slow mover, and I walk with a limp. You can hardly see it now, but if I'm not concentrating..."

War leaves many scars, but rarely does it blind one to the Force...

"Anyway, I'll leave you to find HK and get to practicing your skills with a lightsaber. Be careful, though. The last time I even tried to activate him to see if he was still functioning, he almost shot my arm off! He's like an old man--a dangerous, senile old man that's made out of metal." She snorted.

Suddenly, her spine went ramrod-stiff. Juhani had offered to repair T3, and not only that, but to repair him completely. If she did that, she would have full access to his holorecordings--which was fine--but to his incoming data? The Exile would not have it. Could not have it if she was to survive and keep running. That was how Bastila contacted her, and would contact her in the future, with demands for more credits. Tysyacha's only hope was to pray that Juhani wouldn't be able to decipher Bastila's code.

"I'm one thousand parsecs away" meant that Bastila needed 1,000 credits.

"Two missions were aborted" referred to the two spies that Tysyacha killed.

"Eight years of gridlock" meant eight years of Tysyacha being locked--up.

"Reports come my way all the time" meant "I've got my eye on you, Exile."

And, last but not least, "White always wins" meant "Good always wins".

Not even Juhani would be able to figure all that out unless she knew...

Almost as soon as Chandria clicked her comlink off, she got another call.

"Officer Sakhar? Grand Master Shan speaking. Excellent work! Your sketches are superbly detailed, and I daresay that one of them--not the Mandalorian, mind you, but the old man--reminds me of someone I used to know. It cannot be sheer coincidence, because the Force influences all life and all things. Our new helmeted bounty hunter, and also Agent One, are now in pursuit of the suspect. That's well and good. However, I want you to find the black male and tell him that an old friend of his wants to meet him."

Chandria was curious. "How do you know him, Grand Master? Who is he?"

"It's truly none of your concern, but if you must know, he traveled with me long ago, when I was still a Jedi Knight. If you find him, Sakhar, arrange a meeting between the two of us on Citadel Station in one of the private conference rooms. Also get a transport shuttle for us in case we wish to go to the Temple. Understood?" Chandria answered affirmatively and hung up.

I am not a maid. I am not a secretary. I am not a personal assistant. I am not a servant or valet. I am a respected member of the TSF, and a spy!

Yet, as long as I'm around her or in range of her voice, I know she doesn't mean to treat me like someone who only does menial work. It's just her way, her manner of speaking and dealing with people. I'm just being paranoid.


Resolving to quit whining and start working, Chandria went to locate the man.

Juhani nodded and went off to retrieve the parts and then she cautiously went up to the old droid.

He still has the rust stains. Somethings may have changed...but somethings never will.

Juhani looked down at the blaster in the droid's hand and chuckled quietly as she removed it.

She quickly inserted the parts needed to activate and quickly stood back as the droid shook and then the red photoreceptors blinked once and then became steady.

"Decleration:HK-47 is ready to serve. Wha-? Where is my blaster...wait...you look familiar. Have we met at some point? Self Correcting answer: Impossible...If we had met you/I would not be alive."

Juhani sighed as the droid continued babbling to itself. She quickly got behind it and opened up a small control panel in the back of HK's head."

"Confused Statement: Why are there two of you? And what is a meatbag?"

The sooner I rewire him the better. That just is not right. Now...how did Revan do it? Left red to secondary blue? Yes...I believe that is correct.

Juhani connected the two wires and a few other odd ones and the droid jolted a few times as sparks and gaps in it's memory began to fill.

"Statement: Primary memory is resetting. Combat functions resetting to maximum operating levels. Ohhh...my head...Wait! Who is working on my internal circuts?!"

Juhani stepped in front of the HK and looked up at him. "Hello droid. It's been quite a while hasn't it?"

The droid looked down at her. "The Cathar meatbag! I did not expect to see you again. I would have expected you to have been terminated by now."

Telos

It's time I get moving. I've already drawn too much attention to myself here and the last thing I want is Bastila or one of her pawns coming after me.

Jolee quietly got up and left the cantina as quickly as he could. That lass...something is wrong with her.

"Sir, our spies have detected the Jedi Exile in Coruscant."
"Coruscant? Darn that woman. Send the Immortals."

The "Immortals" Gorrak referred to are an elite group of pistol-toting gunmen. They are famous for getting close to their target before disposing of them. The immortals don't have identities. Two immortals were sent. The first one, a Caucasian Human, was tasked in the elimination of a Cathar Jedi accompanying the exile. The second, a black woman was tasked in abducting the Exile and bringing her back to their master, Gorrak.



OMNIA MUTANTUR NIHIL INTERIT.

Chandria took her time in locating the "elderly black male" that she'd met earlier. She knew he was already suspicious of her, although in her own mind, he didn't need to be. The Jedi were the Jedi, and they stood for order, peace, justice and honor. They always had, and they always would, so why had he said what he did back when he was still with the Mandalorian?

Once she had found him, a great wave of embarrassment swept over her.

"Look," she began slowly, praying to the Force or whatever gods the ancients worshipped that the old man would not be too offended. "I'm sorry I treated your friend the way I did. That was wrong of me. He wasn't a child; he'd only had a little too much to drink back in the cantina. I also shouldn't have blown you off. That's not at all what we in the TSF have been trained to do."

She winced a little--trained to do? What was she, a serving droid? Chandria quickly backpedaled. "My superior, the one who's even higher than my boss here on Citadel Station, is coming for a visit. Apparently, she's heard of you, and she says she's an old friend of yours. If she's right and isn't just playing tricks or something like that, I've arranged for her to be in Conference Room C at 1400 hours, which is coming up pretty soon. She wants to meet you. Whether you do or not is up to you, but I suggest you consider it."

A pause. The old man had the best "pazaak face" that she'd ever seen...

Jolee leaned in close to her. "If my hunch is right...then your 'superior' has fallen...at least partially fallen to the darkside. I think you should think about a career change young lady. Stay alive longer that way."

He turned and headed for the confrence room.

Ebon Hawk

Juhani handed the droid the blaster she had appropriated from him earlier. "You were badly damaged and were behaving oddly. It appears some wires and circuts had been shaken lose. I fixed you."

HK-47 blinked his red diode eyes. "Begrudging Admiration: Your repair skills are far beyond those of an ordinary meatbag. I soundly appreciate the attention." He stopped short for a minute: "Query: Why did you reactivate me? Are there certain hostilities you want terminated? I can do so."

*********************************

Telos, Citadel Station, 1400 Hours

Bastila Shan hadn't changed a bit. Other than the shining-steel gray in her long brown tresses, her face was still the same pale, heart-shaped vision that had entranced Revan so long ago. Yes, there were the beginnings of crow's feet in the corners of her eyes and deeper creases around her firm, full lips, but no one would ever consider her ugly unless they were insane.

She wore her brown, full-length Grand Master's Robe, adapted from one Master Atris who, coincidentally, had once set up her headquarters in the polar regions of the very planet Bastila was now on. Her hair was sculpted on top of her head in an elegant twist, and her eyes shone as luminously as ever. With the easy grace that came so naturally to her, she sat down in a plush chair in Conference Room C across from the man she came to visit.

"Jolee!" she cried, smiling warmly, without a trace of deception in her voice. "I knew it was you the moment I saw Chandria's sketch. I'm sorry you might have had some unpleasant difficulties with her. She is still too rash and impatient for my taste. However, I didn't call you here to talk about her! How are you, and how have you been doing since our travels with Lord--Revan?"

The Basalisk came out of hyperspace above the busy, traffic-filled, space lanes, of Nar Shadaa.

He pulled the ship into a dive, and roared down past the numerous craft speeding past him. The Basalisk nearly scraped the side of a freightor, but Gelvik pulled hard on the control stick, and spiraled down in a controlled dive.

He then broke out of the dive, pulling up and navigating his way through the tall buildings that covered Nar Shadaa entirely. He then began searching the landing pads. The Mandalorian didn't know if the Exile still used the Ebon Hawk, so he needed to contact Chandria again. If he had that last bit of information, then everything else would fall into place.

He activated the comm, "Chandria, are you there?"

Chandria activated her comlink. "Par Sakhar here. I copy loud and clear."

She hoped that the old man she had met and directed toward Conference Room C had gone there. Her superior was a very--intense woman, driven by duty and her great devotion to the greater good of the galaxy. If, as Chandria suspected, the old man was important to her plans, then he had better show up to meet her. Otherwise...

She didn't like to think of what would happen otherwise. It was better not to know.

As he sat down to contemplate, Drayden experienced something very unexpected. A flier, dancing on the slow wind of the understreets, blew right onto his face, and then continued to move about down the dark passages. Standing, his heart pounding for a reason that he didn't understand, his eyes traced the flier until the wind stopped pushing it about.

Walking slowly, making sure no one was present, he approached the flier and then snatched it up. It was wrinkled, but the distortion was not great enough to cover up the blaring message that it conveyed.

Join the Jedi?

Bastila Shan, the leader of the Jedi Order. He'd seen her face so many times on the holonews, but something about her seemed off. In his eyes, she was a frightening character, one who had the look of a murderer, or at least a cold complexion that longed to kill. He had heard tales of the Sith Lords before, and for some reason she reminded him of them. But he also knew, somehow, that she wasn't a Sith Lord. She was just another power-hungry individual that had an endless list of things she wanted.

Join the Jedi my--

Through the Force, he recognized a presence. But then it passed. However, it was enough to alert him that he had to keep moving. Something piqued his curiosity, however.

Where had the flier come from, way down here in the understreets? Sure, this entire place was a wasteland full of thieves and thugs, but the flier did not look like the type that would simply be handed out to someone down here.

Perhaps it was a chance coincidence. Or perhaps it was something else. But, regardless, he wanted to learn more about Bastila. Rumors had spread about a new bounty out, and he hadn't considered it because of the danger involved. Searching for answers to his strangely irritating questions seemed like a priority for now, however.

So he began to walk once more down the lonely streets, thinking back to all the things he had done. Maybe he could make a small change in his life for a bit. Go find out about this Bastila. It seemed like a good idea. Still, he needed money and a place to hide for now, and that wasn't going to be easy.

Time for another bloody contract.

"Par Sakhar here. I copy loud and clear."

He continued searching most of the Landing Pads.

"Very good...do you have any files on what the Exile is using for transportation...is she still using the 'Ebon Hawk?"

His HUD was already scanning through the docking reports. If he could find her ship, everything would move extremely fast...he'd be able to collect on this job very soon.

"As far as I know, she is. That's what my Master--er, superior--told me." Chandria sucked in her breath as quietly as she dared. "Sorry. All that talk about the Jedi and the Mandalorian Wars must have filtered over into my regular work," she said, joking.

"As far as I know, she is. That's what my Master--er, superior--told me. Sorry. All that talk about the Jedi and the Mandalorian Wars must have filtered over into my regular work."

He chuckled, "Heh, I'm sure. That happens to me as well."

Gelvik could feel something...else about what Chandria had said. He had picked up the ability to pick out feelings or motives when someone spoke, really just enhanced observation. The way she said 'Master' was spoken with a sincerity, and a sense of duty...at least, that is what Gelvik had picked up. Her attempt to throw him off what she said worked to confirm that Chandria had to be more then just a capable TSF officer. He was sure of it when he had spoken to her earlier, but that was a different feeling.

He wanted to know what she was.

"Chandria...this may sound interesting...but..uh...after this assignment, I would very much like to talk to you, just person-to-person, if you catch my meaning."

Something caught his eye, a familiar transponder code. It was the Ebon Hawk's transponder, it was labeled on the code list that was posted on his HUD. He was in the right area, he just needed to contact the dock-controllers, and he'd be able to find them.

"I'm onto something."

Chandria perked up her ears. "Really? That fast, eh?" She leaned forward at her desk. "Do tell. My superior wants frequent reports, and the more frequent, the better. What have you found?" She took another sip of her water. As she waited for a response, she added, "I'd very much like to talk to you person-to-person as well. Before I met you, I thought all Mandalorians were thugs."

She cringed. "For the millionth time...sorry. You can sign off if you want."

*******************************

After Juhani had left to reactivate HK-47, Tysyacha turned to the Twi'lek smuggler, Niera. "You must be phenomenal at your trade--or at least have phenomenally-sensitive lekku--to have heard of the UMBRA device. As far as I'm concerned, if you talk about it to the wrong people, you get killed. True?"

"For the millionth time...sorry. You can sign off if you want."

Gelvik nodded to himself, "It's okay, we're known like that for a reason, that was our fault. I understand what you really meant, so no offense is taken."

It was true, the Mandalorians had done some pretty horrible things in their past, they practically deserved to be called thugs.

"Oh...and I've discovered the transponder code for the Ebon Hawk. I don't have their destination logged, but I'm going to check with the Dock Authorities, they'll know due to the roster kept on all ships coming and leaving the system."

He landed the Basalisk on a pad not far from the nearest Control Tower.

"Have you picked up any other information," Gelvik said, as he unstrapped his safety-harness and began to equip.

"Drayden? Drayden Blackthorn?"

A humanoid approached him from behind. He had sensed it, but he knew from the way the creature was walking that it didn't intend him any harm. No, this had to be another contract. For some reason, he inwardly cringed at the idea.

"You've found me, what do you want?" Drayden grasped the handle of his vibrosword on his back, only briefly, and then waited for the humanoid's response. The footsteps behind him stopped, and then Drayden turned around, fully prepared to cut the humanoid down.

"I give you moneysss, yesss? And you take out thissss targetsss." It was a Chiss. He offered Drayden a datapad which was glowing. Obviously it had the location of his target on it. Observing the thing, however, Drayden quickly began to notice something funny about this particular datapad....

Drayden took it anyway, sensing that this was just another crazed man out for blood who couldn't actually take care of it himself. He was too busy thinking, and he wanted to get this over with. So many distractions....Just take the datapad, conclude business, and go.

He would regret the decision.

"Go to sleepssss, assassin," the Chiss grinned. The datapad was now glowing much brighter, and from the tip of it came a hissing sound and Drayden saw a chemical emanating from it. Sleeping gas.

Drayden pulled out his sword and managed to get a cut in before sleep began to take him. It was situations like this that he really hated. They weren't going to kill him, or else they would have done it already, and they wouldn't have the chance to if Drayden woke up again. But, still, as Drayden's eyes closed, he mentally hit himself for being so ignorant.

But there was always tomorrow....

However, I didn't call you here to talk about her! How are you, and how have you been doing since our travels with Lord--Revan?"

Jolee crossed his arms in front of him and sat down in his chair with his saber hanging from his belt. I can't trust her.

"Not much Bastila. Been stuck on this station for nearly seven years. No one even tried to look for me."

Jolee uncrossed his arms and looked at her. "You must sense that something is wrong Bastila...Something is wrong with the Jedi you've been training. They're more...extreme. Cold."

Ebon Hawk

"Query: Why did you reactivate me? Are there certain hostilities you want terminated? I can do so."

Juhani turned to make sure they were alone. "No...I want you to watch over the Exile. I..feel that something is wrong...That something or someone is chasing her. Be her guard, her shadow if you will. Simply watch over her and perhaps I'll let you come with me when I confront Bastila."

HK's eyes flashed with excitment. "Hopeful Inquiry: You plan to terminate the smug Jedi meatbag? And you will include me?"

"Of course. She abandoned both of us...and it's only fair that you confront her as well. I can't battle her alone HK. I'll need your help."

((Played long chess game with Litofsky tonight. He rocked, and so did I! He won. )

"Cold?" asked Bastila. "If by that, Jolee, you mean that they are becoming emotionless, isn't that what the Order has always taught? Vengeance. Anger. Emotion. These are the paths to the Dark Side, and that was the painful lesson I had to learn from scratch when I was being tortured by Lord Malak. I gave in because I let my emotions and my pain control me instead of my rational mind.

"I don't want my Knights and Padawans to have to learn the same lesson so harshly, and so I'm teaching them to deny themselves the feelings that would have made them 'warmer', so to speak. The galaxy has changed in seven years. Agents of terror, whether or not they're allied with the Sith, are everywhere. If we cannot trust our judgment and not let it get clouded by emotion, how are we ever going to stop them? As for 'being extreme'--one must risk all to achieve all. I push my students to the limit. Is that wrong?"

*******************************

"No," replied Chandria Par Sakhar. "No further word. Although--you probably won't believe this--my superior knows the old man who was trying to assist you earlier! The Force works in mysterious ways, doesn't it?" On the other end of the comlink, she smiled. "By the way, if you do want to meet in person, I'd be willing to come and see you if you have definitive proof of the Exile's whereabouts sometime. We can both help to back her to the wall."

Bad turn of phrase. Then again, Tysyacha Dvyx was a murder suspect...

**********************

T3-M4 sidled up to the Exile, beeping anxiously. He sounded as if he were in need of repair or a memory wipe, but the distinct pattern of beeps and whistles he made meant one thing only: incoming data. From Bastila Shan, or at least one of her underlings. She had many of them at that Temple of hers.

"Excuse me," she told Niera. "I think I need to speak with T3 for a moment. Something sounds wrong in the chassis. I won't be long." She waved.

He narrowed his eyes at her. "So your planning on turning the Jedi into mindless automotons. If they can't feel warmth bastila...if you won't allow yourself to feel it, then where is your humanity? What happens to your compassion Hmmm?"

Ebon Hawk.

Soon...the time of our reckoning will be at hand. I will make that schutta pay for leaving me alone on that cesspit...for not even looking.

She felt her anger and despair rolling in waves through the force.

She turned to the droid. "So tell me...what are some of the best ways to kill force users? Or painfully incapcitate them? Either one suits my needs."

The droids eyes flashed with happiness as he began his explanation.

"Hm..the Force..." That raised some questions in Gelvik's mind, but he'd ask those when he saw her in person.

"Well, it won't be long before I have definitive information. Not long at all actually. I like the idea of teaming up to 'back her up into the wall,' as you said. She's definately a fugitive, and I would enjoy your help taking her down, Chandria. Once I have the info, I'll give you a call, and we'll meet up at the designated coordinates, wherever they may be. So, be on the ready okay?"

He reloaded his rifle and checked his powered-armor. He was set to go and find the Dock Authorities. He had to be so heavily-armed because often, the Dock Authorities were little more then Crime Bosses...you couldn't really trust them, at all.

"Alright, I've got to get moving...I look forward to seeing you."


you very much

"Aye, aye," replied Chandria. "Remember, we 'take her down' alive."

She switched off the comlink and wondered how the old man was doing in Conference Room C with her "superior". Even though the Jedi spy was a little worried that the meeting might not go as planned, she wasn't at all worried that either one would suddenly turn into a homicidal maniac. That was what the Jedi Exile had done once she'd started sneaking around and tailing the Exchange on Eriadu. She'd heard Garrun Thax and Yorran Thul, the spies, talking Exchange business and hadn't realized they were Jedi operatives. Maybe they had even been talking about killing someone to get something.

Nevertheless, the Exile had struck first, killing the spies and sending the real Exchange members into a panicked and fleeing mode. Mission accomplished? Hardly. The Exchange members were still alive, but the Jedi spies were dead.

In a way, Chandria would be relieved when the Exile was captured. Yet...

**************************

"What do you mean, I'm trying to turn my students into mindless automatons?" She pursed her lips. "That's not my intention at all, and if you believe it is, then you severely misjudge me. If I wanted an Order full of droids, I would have had some custom-built to carry out the work of the Jedi. I'm only saying that emotion can get in the way of proactive steps in fighting evil. For example, if I had not given in to my emotions, I wouldn't have made so many foolish missteps in trying to redeem...well...he was, eventually, but I fell to the Dark Side because of the passion for him I was trying to hide.

"It is my duty to help my students rid themselves of such base passion. Compassion is not always about being charitable or loving your enemies. Sometimes, to have compassion on your allies, you must do everything you can to protect them and help them protect themselves. Would you go into battle without weapons, with your hands bound behind your back? Of course you wouldn't, and that's what passion, fear and anger can do to you."

She didn't like arguing with Jolee. However, she knew it wasn't pointless...

****************************

"What's up, T3?" Tysyacha reached out through the Force to sense if anyone was listening in on the two of them. No one was at the moment, so it was safe to continue. "Let me check your chassis and see if we've got problems."

She opened a panel on his chest and pressed a secret "playback" button.

"Good morning!" chirped a light-haired male. "Master Shan says she's now two thousand parsecs away. Reports are coming in all the time, and she says in three days, she wants to eliminate the distance." On the holovid, he shook his head. "I don't know what any of that means, or is supposed to mean, but that's what she told me to tell you. She's kind of busy right now. Terance Larp signing off." Cringing, Tysyacha asked T3 to check her personal ledger.

"Two thousand?!" My, she's moving fast. At this rate, I'll be locked up in a matter of days, not weeks, unless her bounty hunters miscalculate or she suddenly decides to call them off and go after me herself. "T3, we only have ten thousand right now! If she keeps 'increasing the distance...'"

T3 warbled sadly, and Tysyacha gave him a huge hug. What to do now?

He held up a hand to silence her. "Passion doesn't lead to the Darkside. Passion can lead to fear...and then anger which can lead to the darkside but passion in itself won't lead you to the darkside."

"Would you go into battle without weapons, with your hands bound behind your back? Of course you wouldn't."

"Hello? I have force powers here...I don't think I would need any weapons. Young people these days...so forgetful."

He casually looked over to the side of the window that showed the night sky. What was that? It felt like a wave of anger...despair...all of it rolling briefly through the force before being contained. Someone is trying to hide their presence.

Ebon Hawk

Juhani had finished her discussion with Hk for the night who was now off patroling the ship and checking for escape routes. Juhani...was looking for the exile.

Where is she? I think she would be happy to know I repaired that old droid of hers and got his mind working properly again.

-ster Shan says she's now two thousand parsecs away. Reports are coming in all the time, and she says in three days, she wants to eliminate the distance."

Juhani's heart caught up in her throat and a massive wave of anger began to ripple away from her when she heard the name 'Shan'.

Bastila...so the exile knows something about her. I will get her when she is sleeping. She will either surrender the information...or I will drag it from her head.

Juahni turned and stalked off toward the cockpit

Darkness. Drayden was used to it. But this wasn't the darkness of the understreets of Coruscant. He couldn't see anything, and the rush of the wind and background noise of the understreets was gone. In its place was a low humming. Normally it would have been soothing to him, but this time it only agitated him.

He was on a ship. This was going to be an easy matter, then, if he was able to get out of the room he was in. Luckily, the door opened promptly at that moment, and Drayden was able to get a look at the Chiss yet again, who was holding a heavy rifle. They were far enough from each other, however, that it was likely Drayden would get shot before he could make a move.

This was going to be difficult, then. Even common thugs could be dangerous if you weren't careful. So he had to take this slow.

"Don't move, assassinssss. Let me tell you where you're goinssss, yessss? I'm going to give you to the hutssss, and then I'm going to get me some moneyssss. Sssso move it, assassinssss." He was nudging the gun threateningly.

Drayden decided to move, taking notice that the gun was now much closer out of his peripheral vision. He kept walking, silently building the courage to....

Suddenly, the exit ramp opened and the Chiss hit him so hard with the gun that he fell out onto the ground. His head hit with a harsh impact, not to mention the rest of his body, and it took him a few moments to recollect his senses. Then he noticed where he was. It was a landing pad. But he wasn't on Coruscant anymore. No, he knew this planet. He was on Nar Shadaa.

Time to move.

Vengeance. Anger. Emotion. According to Grand Master Bastila Shan, these were the tools of the Dark Side, or at least definite pathways toward it. Yet these were the sensations the Exile felt all of a sudden, coming from the direction of the cockpit. Juhani. She's heard something. Maybe she just heard my conversation with T3. If so, all is not lost, but then again...

Does she think I'm in league with Bastila? On her SIDE, for Force's sake? Something's not right here. I have to tell Juhani the truth, or else she's never going to trust me--and I won't trust her. As for Niera--maybe later.
She went toward the cockpit, passing HK-47, reactivated and ready for action.

"Jubilant Exclamation: It is a pleasure to see you alive, Master!"

Tysyacha grinned, but ignored him for the most part. She had serious business to attend to. Once she saw Juhani, she signaled for the Cathar to follow her. She led her to the cargo hold, where her dvyxplanochniy waited. With a snap-hiss, she detached the blades and gave the hilts to Juhani--one for each hand. Then, very slowly, she knelt at her feet.

"I have something to tell you," said the Exile, almost whispering. "I'm...a murderer. As I searched for Revan, or tried to earn some credits to go search for him beyond the Outer Rim, I worked in a salvage yard on Eriadu as a slagbreaker. Unbeknownst to me, at least at first, the yard and its foundry were controlled by the Exchange and its 'front men'. I saw two of them, a Rodian and a human male, one hot and blustry day not too long ago. I was exhausted from work, but not too exhausted to forgo following them."

She swallowed hard, tasting precious little saliva. "They were talking about killing people, Republic officers in fact, to get their hands on the very same UMBRA device that Niera said she could procure. They were making plans. I heard all the details, and what's more, they soon joined up with some other thugs from the Exchange in order to elaborate. I was so furious that, overcome by rage and heat and the desperate pangs of a powerless pawn, I leapt into action and struck them both dead with my saberstaff, sending the others into a blind panic. They ran, and I ran in the opposite direction, leaving the bodies behind." A tear surfaced. "The two I killed were spies.

"Jedi spies, that is--Garrun Thax and Yorran Thul. I only found this out after the fact, when the Grand Master of the Jedi Order summoned me for questioning. Apparently, there were eyewitnesses, but not too reliable. After my interrogation was over, Bastila said I had three choices: confess, be tried, or run. If I chose to run, however, I would have to pay her credits and continue to pay for as long as I was fleeing justice. I--chose that path!"

She laid her hands on the buttons to ignite the blades. They sprang to life. Tysyacha then took Juhani's own hands in hers, so that the silver pillars of energy lay diagonally across her neck, intersecting at the delicate carotid artery. "Bastila Shan is blackmailing me, as well she might. I'm a killer. Death is preferable to the guilt and the shame and the endless recriminations. My dear Juhani, vengeance is yours. Take it. Then you can vanquish Bastila."

Tysyacha closed her eyes, preparing for the final blow--checkmate.

Before she did, however, she thought she saw two Twi'lek eyes watching...

"I refuse."

Juhani deactivated the saber without a second thought after listening to the exile. "What happend to you was an accident. There was no way of knowing that the two of them were spies. What Bastila is doing is wrong...Jedi do not blackmail like she is doing. Bastila has fallen. She fell a long time ago."

Juhani grabbed her hand and made her stand up.

Lying on the landing pad like this, Drayden finally noticed that his vibrosword was missing. The weight and the ease with which he was able to bend told him that. Reaching his hand down to his boot, he quickly grabbed the vibroknife hidden there and then waited until he felt the heavy rifle against his back.

With a move that he had wished he had practiced more, he reached back and slammed the vibroknife into the Chiss's hand. Drayden's assumption had paid off. The Chiss staggered back and dropped the weapon, rather than firing it, and then remembered to look at Drayden.

He realized his mistake too late. With a practiced stroke, the vibroknife cut into the Chiss's neck, instantly causing him to drop. It was over.

Wiping off the vibroknife on the Chiss's clothing, Drayden slipped it back into the compartment in his boot and then headed back into the ship.

He didn't really care about the ship. He knew that he would not be able to fly it since he had not hacking experience. But he wanted his vibrosword and blaster back, and it didn't hurt to try flying the thing anyway. How else was he supposed to get off this crazy rock?

Things were made simple for Drayden. This was obviously no experienced thug that had captured him. Drayden's weapons were lying against the bulkhead in a small room off to the side, in plain view.

Slipping the blaster back into his belt and sliding the vibrosword back into his baldric, Drayden made a brief 360 and then made off for the cockpit.

When he reached it, his worst and yet completely expected fears were true. The console was obviously locked, given that the displays actually said so, and more to the point the console was outfitted with a now flashing biometric hand-reader. This ship wasn't going anywhere.

Coming back out onto the landing pad, Drayden first noticed the foul smell of the planet. He hadn't noticed it before, but now his experiences on Nar Shadaa were all floating back to him. Looking around, Drayden didn't see much of anything nearby. Except....

Up on the landing pad by the nearest control tower he noticed something very out of place. It was a thing he had rarely seen before, and it inspired some kind of dread in him just the same. And he knew it had no place here.

It was a Basilisk War Droid.

As Tysyacha stood up, she realized that her legs were shaking so hard that she almost lost her balance and fell into Juhani's arms! Recovering her composure, but only barely, she said, "Thank you. My life was in your hands, and you gave it back to me. You are a true Jedi, not one of Bastila Shan's enslaved and brainwashed thralls, and I'm glad to see my confession was not wasted. It shall be the only one I'll ever make. Only the two of us--that is, three, counting Niera--need to know.

"However, if you help me, you will be aiding and abetting a fugitive from justice. Are you willing to take that risk? Bastila may not care anything about true justice, but the Republic certainly will if I'm caught. Are you...willing to keep my secret safe?"

"Remember, we 'take her down' alive."

"Right, no problem there."

He then deactivated his comm as well, and walked out of the Basalisk.

The Nar Shadaa streets were extremely crowded, but the numerous people and aliens made room for the heavily-armed Mandalorian.

The nearby control tower wasn't far off, and he made his way there fairly quickly. He opened the door and walked inside.

He loudly announced, "Who here is the dock authority?"

The other men in the room where visibly intimidated, and a small man raised his arm up slowly.

Gelvik walked towards the control panel behind the man, and pushed him aside.

He immediatley began to search the database for the Ebon Hawk's docking codes, which would then lead to their destination.

Finally, he found it, and the destination surprised him.

He activated his comm, "Chandria...I found where they're going...you won't even have to move...if this is correct, they're heading towards Telos."

"I stopped caring about the law...A long time ago. And besides, we can turn this against Bastila. She let you go when it was her duty to capture you in order to gain credits. I am quite sure that she broke a big law when she did that."

She smiled a slightly insane smile. "Besides...I doubt that she'll be able to do anything when her head is seperated from her shoulders."

Taking his time, Drayden cautiously walked along the long path to the control tower. The Basilisk interested him, and since he needed to get to the control tower to find a way off of the planet, he had an excuse to check it out.

The biggest event that happened on his way to the control tower was the slight breeze, caused by who-knows-what. As he approached the entrance to the control tower, he made sure he had a good grip on his blaster before he entered.

Inside, there were very few people, and there was not much going on there. Drayden figured that what he wanted must be higher up the control tower. Spotting a lift, he walked over to it and pressed the "up" control. No one in the room looked at him. Things were going well for him so far.

On the next floor, which he assumed was the one with the landing pad, his thoughts were confirmed. Everyone's attention was focused on the presence in the room, a Mandalorian.

This must be who owns the Basilisk.

"Chandria...I found where they're going...you won't even have to move...if this is correct, they're heading towards Telos."

The Mandalorian was obviously on a mission of some sort, probably a bounty. The thought strangely sickened Drayden. But then, a question formed in his mind, and his curiosity got the better of him. Knowing full well how fast he could draw his weapons, Drayden confronted the Mandalorian as he turned from the control panel he was at.

"Drayden Blackthorn," he said, firmly and yet quickly. "What do you know of Bastila Shan?"

"I'm in this with you. I may be in the clear once we get into Republic space, but you won't be, and you'll need the help of someone who's been on the wrong side of the law more than once. Someone like me." Niera replied, keeping a reassuring look in her eyes. "I've dealt with corrupt businessmen before, but never a corrupt Jedi. This should be interesting."

TELOS

Chandria Par Sakhar dropped her comlink straight into the refresher latrine.

Good thing she had just finished using and flushing it!

Once she had wiped it off, she almost shouted, "What?! You can't be serious! If you are, then this is a quicker breakthrough than I ever thought there would be in this case! If the suspect is headed for Telos, then she and whoever's with her, including utility droids, will have to land on Citadel Station if they don't head for the polar regions or former Czerka research sites. When her ship lands, which it will, we at the TSF will take her into custody, and you'll get the two million credits you're after. Brilliant!"

She was so excited that she truly couldn't believe her ears. Success! Maybe Bastila will be so pleased with me that she'll finally promote me from a TSF officer on this backwater station to a real Jedi--a Jedi Knight! Police work is my dream, and it has always been my dream, but as a girl...

Chandria Par Sakhar had wanted to join the Jedi, but she lacked the Force.

*************************

Bastila Shan sighed. "I didn't summon you in order to get into an argument, Jolee. You have always been one of my dearest comrades. I called you to see if you wanted to come to the Temple on Coruscant to teach the students there. It's so hard to find both knowledgeable and reputable people these days who know how to take all the ramifications of a situation into play. However, if you still believe that I and the Jedi are wrong, then I will withdraw the offer immediately. Are you with me or against me, Mr. Bindo?"

*************************

ABOARD THE EBON HAWK

A slow smile spread across Tysyacha's face. "Indeed...Jedi Knight."

She winked at Juhani. "Perhaps now we can fight that duel I wanted to propose? You're going to need more than a geriatric assassin droid to keep you at the peak of your performance." Her face was flushed with excitement.

Tysyacha turned to Niera next. "Agreed. What's our next move?"

Gelvik himself felt very pleased with this job. He left the Control Tower and began his walk back to his ship.

"Well...as you said yourself, the Force works in mysterious ways...I'll be there very soon, the Basalisk's hyperdrive is much faster then the Ebon Hawk's. Be prepared, let's not start counting the profits until the job is done....the Exile is still a force to be reckoned with."

He had heard a distinct joy in Chandria's words. He could imagine she could get promoted for this, so he understood that, alot of good things would happen if they managed to capture the Exile. They'd have to be at the top of their game in order to capture this Jedi.

He reached his Basalisk and began to activate it.

"I'd suggest you get the TSF ready to give them a warm reception. I doubt the Exile would simply walk into custody....I'll be there very soon."

Somebody caught the Mandalorians attention.

"Drayden Blackthorn, What do you know of Bastila Shan?"

He turned to face the man.

"Gelvik Verokin....I know nothing of Bastila Shan. What are you talking about?"

His hand rested on his blaster-rifle, being approached by a random person and asked a question regarding a Jedi that Gelvik had heard little about, was often, not good.


you very much

"I didn't summon you in order to get into an argument, Jolee. You have always been one of my dearest comrades. I called you to see if you wanted to come to the Temple on Coruscant to teach the students there. It's so hard to find both knowledgeable and reputable people these days who know how to take all the ramifications of a situation into play. However, if you still believe that I and the Jedi are wrong, then I will withdraw the offer immediately. Are you with me or against me, Mr. Bindo?"

"First of all, don't ever call me Mr. Bindo. It's just a foolish mistake on your part. And...I'll think about that teaching position. Just give me a few days."

"Indeed...Jedi Knight."

"It's been a long time since someone's called me that. A very long time indeed."

"Perhaps now we can fight that duel I wanted to propose? You're going to need more than a geriatric assassin droid to keep you at the peak of your performance."

"If you think you can handle my level of sparring then your welcome to duel with me. Be aware, I've been training my body and my connection to the force for seven years straight. If the duel becomes too much for you, simply deactivate your lightsaber and I will stop."

"I believe this meeting is concluded, then," smiled Bastila. "I look forward to your answer." She stood up and left the conference room, without any aura of duplicity surrounding her. Bastila knew, and Jolee knew Bastila knew, that she needed him on her side. After all, Jolee was a Jedi, albeit an errant one. She needed all the allies she could get. If he taught as a Jedi Professor Emeritus at the Temple, perhaps in time she could...

No. Not now. He needed to make this choice of his own free will, and not of coercion.

"Let me hear Niera's answer," responded the Exile, "and then we will duel. Niera? What have you heard about the device we're after, and what's more, what have you heard about the other people--the ones who were with the spies I killed--who were trying to plot to kill Republic officers to get it? You may not know, but they could prove clues."
