Varik barely had time to block the lightning with his lightsabers, when he saw Sevaris throw his saber in an arc - heading toward Avirela. Noticing his distraction and his focus in the lightsaber in the air - Varik put his lightsabers on his belt, and ran in a massive sprint towards Sevaris - leaping and tackling him. Although he didn't knock him to the ground, he used his momentum to swing behind him and put his arm around his neck. He dug his knee into the back of his leg and got him in a chokehold.
"Now, I shall ask you again, surrender, or you will die.", Varik said, temporarily putting a hold on the fight.
