(Sorry it took me this long to reply- I thought the vacation I was on would be shorter, but the car decided otherwise)

Mobas slammed into the doorjam as the fire from down the hall tracked his movements. He fired twice down the hall, heard a grunt, and got through the door.

Behind the door was a large cafeteria area. Coming in through the door on the opposite side of the room from where Mobas had come from were a couple Sith Troopers.

Mobas took careful aim with his pistol and sent one spinning to the ground. He had to give it to the Sith, they had good soldiers. The other immediately sought cover and returned fire.

On the other hand, the soldier didn't know about the modifications Mobas had made to his pistols. They chewed right through the upended table he was hiding behind and blew a good-sized hole in the man's armor.

Mobas turned and shot the soldier trying to sneak in behind him. That seemed to be it, so he moved for the cockpit again. The astromech still had them in hyperspace, and the course plot showed them on the first leg of a two-leg journey to Dantooine.

Jinru came in through the open doorway. "You got the Sith?" asked Mobas. Jinru nodded an affirmative, looking at the odd copilot.

"We're on our way to Dantooine," said Mobas, grinning. "They'll listen to you, right?"

"They'll listen to me, if Sedra hasn't convinced them that I am crazy rogue Jedi." Said Jinru, who then went up to the Holodeck, and was trying to contact the Jedi Academy. In a few seconds a Jedi was on the Holodeck,

"Master Linson, this is Jinru Tak, I am being..." Said Jinru being Interrupted by Linson "Jinru Tak, Sedra Niro contacted us, and said that you attempted to kill him and that you were ordered to stand down when in flight, but instead you went into the city and stole a speeder and was being chased by police speeders, and during that chase innocent people were killed, how do you explain that?"

"Sedra Niro is working for the sith." Said Jinru "He had two sith bodyguards, and a sith ship orbiting Taris, I know because I fought one of those two bodyguards and that Sith ship boarded us we fought them off and is now pursuing us. The reason I am contacting you is that I need the Jedi Orders help to protect us from the Sith ship..."

Suddenly they dropped out of Hyperdrive, Jinru looked at Mobas with a puzzled look, Jinru then knew what happaned "Theres still someone on the ship" He said to himself, and then looked at Mobas, and then quickly turned around to face Linson "Send ships to these coordinates, and quickly, we'll try and hold them off or try and get the hyperdrive to work." Quicky sending coordinates over the Holodeck

"But..." Just then they were hit by the sith ship, and it took out their communication relay

Jinru looked at Mobas "Well whoever tookout our Hyperdrive is not going to live long to tell the tale, will you take the con while I go find the person who did this?"...

Mobas nodded. I'll see if I can run some diagnostics and see what they did to it. And if it's repairable." He left, at a run. Sometimes, speed mattered on these repairs.

In the bridge, the same astromech was there. "Droid," he said. "Anybody come in here?" It beeped a negative at him.

He nodded. It would make sense for the person to have done it mechanically anyway. They'd be stranded longer. "Have you got any sort of communications jamming on board this thing?" he queried. Its response was short and a negative again. "Can you instruct the ship to broadcast white noise on all frequencies?" he asked. It swiveled its head at him and asked a question. He peered at the translator screen.

"Yes, I'm sure I want to do that, and no, I'm not crazy." he said. The noise would make them traceable, but less so than a saboteur could. He turned on a console and started running diagnostics.

Mobas and Jinru heard a light clank behind them and turned to see a Jedi. Junru breathed a sigh of relief, but stopped short as he realized that this Jedi didn't seem to be happy. She had a long lightsaber in her hand with brilliant orange blades extending from both sides.

"The counsel is not pleased with your performance," she said. "They have sent me to bring you back."

"Did you sabotage the hyperdrive on the ship?" asked Mobas, impatiently. "Because if not, you'd better go help Jinru find who it was." He was annoyed that this Jedi was so short with them. After all, they'd been on their way to Dantooine. He told her as much.

The console he'd been working at beeped at him. He turned and looked at it. There. That was the problem. Some wires had been disconnected, and the hyperdrive unit had had an explosive surge of energy within itself, with no way to discharge that energy. Shortly put, the hyperdrive motivator had blown up. There was a backup motivator in a utility closet off of the bridge, and some extra wiring.

"Hold on a moment," he said to the Jedi. "I'm going to have to go fix the hyperdrive. It might be useful to have someone up here that I can have initiate the jump again while I watch and make sure our saboteur doesn't come back again." he pointed to the droid. "It knows the jump path and our coordinates. Have it initiate the jump. I might be back, I might not. If not, tell Jinru if he wants to find me ever again, he'll know where to look."

The Jedi considered this and nodded, putting her lightsaber away.

"I will cooperate," she said. "For now, at least."

As Mobas ran toward the door, the Jedi stopped him.

"I don't think we've been properly introduced," she said. "I'd like to fix that."

The ship lurched. "Another time, perhaps."

"It will have to wait for another time because the ship should not be lurching." he turned back to consoles, and keyed up the diagnostics again.

"Our mysterious saboteur has struck again," he said. "We just lost one of the sub-lightspeed engines." he did another check. "We've still got some left, though." he grabbed the motivator and left, moving through the corridors of the ship to the area in the middle-aft of the liner where the motivator was to go.

It took him some time to get everything working again, but he managed it. He grabbed a commlink, and called the bridge.

"The motivator's working again." he said. "You should be allright to start the jump again."

The mysterious Jedi followed Mobas' orders and the ship rocketed into hyperspace.

"Now that that's over," the Jedi continued, "would you care to tell me more of what has happened? Hearing that you're on your way to Dantooine has made me less distrustful, but I'd be interested to know the whole situation. Oh, yes. My name is Virana Xyll."

"Well," said Mobas, into the commlink, "It's a long story. Jinru tried to ascort Niro, but Niro turned out to have gone bad, and was escorted by a couple of Sith. The first ship they'd been planning to take had been sabotaged, by me, because I was trying to gain the bounty on Niro."

"When only Jinru got on board the second ship, where I had disguised myself as a chef, I was worried. I ran into a Sith by accident, and Jinru saved me from him. In return, I helped take out one of the two Sith. Then we had a pictures up together on the holonet on the planet, and the ship's hull had been breached."

"We went to stay with some wookie friends of mine, and then managed to get on board this ship by posing as staff. You obviously know about the troubles with the Sith, and our saboteur." Mobas looked around. "Any word from Jinru yet? I'm getting kind of worried."

Virana frowned. "No. I haven't seen him since he left. Do you want me to stay here or try to find him?"

"I'm not sure." admitted Mobas. "I think maybe you'd better look for him." he looked at the hyperspace unit. "I've got things working back here and I don't particularly don't want to leave it alone."

(sorry it took me so long to respond, school has been hectic)


As Jinru ran down the hallway, and looking for where the hyperspace unit was, he looked down a hallway and there on the ground was a dead mans body, and leaning over it was a cloaked woman crying, Jinru had forgotten this ship to be a public transport ship, he quickly ran up to the woman and leaned down next to her and put his non-ignited lightsaber on his belt, and leaned down next to the woman, but that instant the woman jumped up and kicked Jinru right in the face sending him back, and while he was on the ground, the woman pulled Jinru's lightsaber off of his belt, and into her hand with the force. She then pulled out her on red lightsaber and was pointing both of them at Jinru.

"The Jedi are weak, dumb creatures." She said with a sneer "Always pitying the weak."

Jinru looked right at the sith, and was struck by how pale her face was, and how haunting she looked.

"I guess you think I am going to kill you now, but luck may have it, Sedra Niro specifically asked me to keep you alive and kill all the others, but let it be known if he didn't ask me that I would kill you where you lay." She said with a wicked smile, she then raised her hand and started choking Jinru, and raising him into the air, Jinru knew that she was a powerful sith, indeed. He started to space out but she dropped him onto the ground, and went up to him and with her lightsaber hilt, knocked him unconscious, and all was blank...

By this time, Virana had begun her search of the ship, trying to find Jinru. She stumbled upon the Sith who was by this time carrying Jinru away.

"Not so fast," Virana called. The Sith spun to glare at her.

"Another pitiful Jedi?" the Sith scoffed. Virana activated both blades of her lightsaber.

"Come get me," she retorted. The Sith gave an evil laugh and launched into battle. Virana realized that this Sith was powerful, but she knew her limits as well and decided that the Sith was not outside of them.

The battle lingered on for what seemed like a lifetime, when in fact, it only lasted a few moments. Virana's opponent was cold. The Sith woman would use any tactic she could to gain victory, even if it meant hurting herself to do so, which she did. As they battled, the Sith woman purposely twisted her ankle and fell to the ground. She deactivated it and rolled it toward Virana, as a sign of good faith. Jinru's lightsaber had already been knocked out of her other hand earlier in the fight.

"You would not strike an injured, unarmed person, would you?" she said with an innocent look upon her face. "I would not, but do not expec ..." A huge slam came to the back of Virana's head, knocking her out cold. Virana and Jinru did not notice the man lying "dead" was in fact alive. A mistake that they would come to learn from, if they did in fact live through this encounter. The Sith woman rose to her feet, carefully without placing weight on her newly sore ankle. "Excellent work, Shad." she said with a grin. Shad felt a bit guilty of what he had done, but had a strong will, hiding this "weakness" from his facial expression and his mind so his Sith companion did not notice.

"I did what had to be done, Landra." he said in his deep voice as he looked down at Virana. "But that doesn't mean I'm proud of it." Shad leaned down and grabbed Landra's lightsaber, so she did not have to herself, possibly straining her ankle. He reached out to hand her the lightsaber, but as he did so, she snatched it from his hand. "You always were a weak one, Shad. It is only a matter of time before I put you out of the Sith's mysery. Lucky for you, your help is needed by the Sith." Shad ignored her. He leaned down and comfiscated Virana's lightsaber, placing it on his own belt.

A person's first impression of Shad is that he is not your average Sith. He was very tall, in fact, almost as tall as a Wookie! That was no small oddity for a human as a Jedi or a Sith. He wasn't the smartest man, but he never let his physical mass slow him down. He was all muscle, and a man his size wielding a lightsaber was quite a show. He was more skilled with a lightsaber than he was in the Force, which kind of came with the territory.

"Kill her. Kill her now, while the other is still gathering himself!" Landra said with an evil hiss. Shad flicked his eyes toward Landra, then back to Virana. "No." Landra wasted no time hesitating, instead, she activated her lightsaber. She raised it in the air, and was about to swing down, when Jinru came up behind her and froze her in her tracks with a Stasis Field.

"Your turn, big fellow!" Jinru said with a bit of an astonished look on his face of the sheer size of the man before him. As he was about to use his Force powers on Shad, Shad reacted quicker. He may not have been a smart person, but when it came to battle, he was in a class of his own. Shad lifted his huge leg, kicking Jinru against a wall. Weakened by the attack, Jinru's hold on Landra was also released. She used the Force to drain Jinru a bit, healing herself by doing so. She then turned to finish what she was about to do earlier. She returned her lightsaber to a swing-down position and proceeded to do so. Not a good idea on her part. "NO." Shad said again, this time putting his response into action, picking up Landra by the throat and lifting her into the air! "NO MORE!" Shad was a gentle man at heart, believe it or not. Even though he lifted her up in the air, his grip on her neck was not a hard one. He brought her back down to the ground gently. That was his mistake. Landra, infuriated, swung her lightsaber, slicing Shad across the chest. Shad roared in pain, filling the hallway with his mighty voice.

"Your time is up, Shad. You made a big mistake." Landra said. In fact, Landra had made the mistake this time around. She pissed him off. Shad is a very gentle man, he would do his best not to hurt anyone if it could be avoided, but when Shad's angry, all the gentleness in the world couldn't stop him from beating a person into a bloody pulp. Landra found that out the hard way, as Shad ripped the lightsaber out of her hand and threw it over into a corner. He lifted her up into the air with both hands, then threw her down, making her hit the ground hard, and knocking her out cold in the process. Jinru finally rose to his feet. He was frozen in confusion. He didn't know whether to help him, or help Landra. Seeing as how he was a Jedi, and would help anyone in need, he decided to help Landra. She needed it to. If Jinru didn't help her, she would be killed by a raging lunatic with a lightsaber.

"Excuse me, big fellow?" Shad stopped what he was doing and turned to look at Jinru. That was all the time that he needed to save his enemy. He used the Force to grab his own lightsaber. It returned to his grasp. Shad had left his rage behind him, when Jinru called to him. He looked at Jinru for a moment longer, then back down to Landra. He took his lightsaber, then took hers. He tossed them to Jinru. Jinru, confused as hell this time, cought them.

"I will not fight you. You can arrest me, kill me, do what you will. I am no Sith, and I am glad because of it." Shad said as he stared at the unconscious Landra. Speaking of unconscious, Varina was finally regaining her consciousness. "I will be dealt with willingly, Landra, on the other hand, will not." Shad picked up Landra and placed her over his shoulder. He stood there, in wait of what the two Jedi would do with him and Landra.

Virana stood still for a moment, still unsure of what to do. Then she felt the ship drop out of hyperspace.

"We'll let the Jedi Council decide what to do with you," she said. "It feels like we've arrived."

Shad nodded in agreement. "My name is Shad Sonos. This lovely young unconscious lady is Landra Monali." Shad forgot that she was over his shoulder. He gently let her down to the ground, sitting her against a wall of the now landed ship. "You think they have cuffs big enough for these?" Shad said as he put his large hands out in front of him.

Virana's commlink beeped, and Mobas' voice came through. "We're over Dantooine," he said. "I'm leaving the ship in orbit and we'll be taking a shuttle down. Who knows what sith are on board still? We can have the Jedi clean the ship out once Jinru's been debriefed. Head to the hangar. I'll have a shuttle waiting."

Jinru disconnected the link, then leaned back in the chair in the bridge for a moment. The astromech droid beeped at him, and he looked over at it. A moment later, he looked at the security cams. Where the hyperdrive motivator was, a body lay. Jinru smiled, and looked over at the droid again. "C'mon." he said to it. "I need someone who can plot me a course to the Jedi Temple."

He got up, and mvoed out of the bridge, glad to finally be to Dantooine.

Virana headed for the shuttle bay and was followed by Shad and Jinru. Personally, she believed Jinru's story after hearing it from Mobas. At least Mobas believed he was telling the truth and she sensed the same in Jinru.

As they each boarded the shuttle, Shad realized this wouldn't be a comfortable trip. He had to duck his head down low just to enter the shuttle. As he sat inside, his head was being pushed down by the ceiling. Virana and Jinru did their best to supress their laughter. Shad knew better. It wouldn't be the first time his size was cause for laughter, and he knew it wouldn't be the last. He didn't seem to mind it though. The shuttle finally went out into orbit. Landra was still unconscious, which was a good thing. Shad kept his eyes on her, readying himself just incase she decided to wake up before the trip was over.

Landing on Dantooine was one of the most surreal moments in an adventure that had been, for Mobas, one of the most surreal... had it only been a matter of almost a week? It had felt like two lifetimes. The ride down was one of the few peaceful moments in the entire group of adventures, down to a peaceful planet where an air of tranquility hung over the ground like a layer of fog.

Setting the shuttle down, he saw more than a few Jedi standing ready at the edge of the landing pad. He motioned to Virana and Jinru. "Looks like you have a few friends ready to recieve you," he commented, as he started through the passenger compartment to the rear, where the door was. "You might want to reassure them that everything's all right." he looked at the young, unconcious woman. "And having a Sith to bring in will probably help." He opened the door, and the Dantooine air blew in, scented with the wildlife of this planet.

Jinru was much relieved to breathe and feel the Dantooine air, as he walked down the shuttle ramp while holding Landra Monalis arm, who was still half awaking from her unpleasant unconsciousness, Jinru was then followed by Virana who was followed by Shad, and last came Mobas Rekken. Jinru looked around at the Jedi standing at the Pad, they all were staring at them with cold stares, Jinru knew it would take some convincing to convince them that he was a jedi. Jinru saw Jedi Master Linson walking towards him with his silver-hilted Lightsaber in his hand.

"Greetings, Jinru Tak, I see you have brought back... company." Said Linson looking at Virana

"This is Landra Monali, the sith who sabetoged our ship we were just on, and back there is Shad Sonos, another saboteur."

Linson looked at them, and looked at Virana, Virana nodded "Maybe so but how did you get the public transport ship in the first place?" Said Linson, Jinru then related all of his adventure, well most of his adventure, he told him everything from the time he was at Niro's office, and so on, after Jinru told him everything, Linson looked at Mobas and then Virana, and then put his lightsaber on his belt.

"Welcome back to the academy Jinru." Linson said with a bow.

After a while, Landra and Shad had been escorted to a prison within the Jedi base. Shad followed willingly, and with no struggle whatsoever. Landra, on the other hand, tried to punch, kick, and even bite her escorts. One of the guards actually had to use a stun weapon on her to stop her reckless behavior. Shad sat in his cell, dwelling on current events.

"Shad Sonos, another saboteur." Shad thought about what Jinru had said to the other Jedi about him. "Nevermind the fact that I saved an unconscious Jedi who could easily have been killed by the Sith in the next cell over." he thought to himself. "Nevermind the fact that I gave up willingly. I'm just a saboteur." he thought.

"Oh quit crying already, you overgrown baby!" a voice said from the cell next to his. "Landra? You're awake?" Shad asked. "Yeah .. I'm awake." Landra said, her tone a bit quiet this time. Shad shook his head, then leaned up against a wall as he sat on his bed. "So you heard my thoughts?" it was more a statement than a question.

"I did." she replied. "Look, I'm sorry for the way I've been acting. You didn't deserve how I treated you earlier. It's just that those damn Jedi do-gooders get on my nerves. We had a job to do, and we ..... I ... I blew it." Landra's tone was sincere for what seemed like the first time.

"It's okay, Landra." Shad replied with a slight smile, relieved that Landra wasn't the evil person he had thought her to be. "I'm not cut out for being a member of the Sith, Landra. I can't bring myself to hurt people unless they deserve it." he said in a soft tone, but still coming on loud because of his deep voice. "I'm truly sorry for hurting you, Landra."

"It's okay, Shad. I had it coming." she replied. "I should have known better than to piss you off anyway. You know, Shad, I'm starting to think that the Sith aren't the way to go either." "Are you serious?" Shad's eyebrows raised in shock as he asked. "Of course I am, big guy. I may have an attitude, but that doesn't mean that I'm evil." she replied.

"We're in trouble, aren't we?" asked Shad. "I'm in trouble. You redeemed yourself, so I imagine they'll be leniant on you. As for me ..." Landra didn't finish the sentence. "I won't let them hurt you, Lan." Shad said, sternly. "I know, big guy. I know."

Mobas found his accomodations, while nice, rather repetitive. The unceasing beauty of this planet was beginning to get on his nerves.

He knew why he was still being held in here. It was because they were still verifying Jinru's story. They'd gone through it twice with him, and that seemed to be it.

So it was that Mobas found himself sitting on the veranda on one of the resort-like domiciles. And it was there that a Jedi Master found him. The Cathar sat down. He was nearly bald except for a topnot. His feline ancestry showed through moreso in him then it did in any other Cathars Mobas had met.

"Mobas Rekken," said the Jedi Master, examining Mobas as if examining prey.

"You found me." said Mobas, sipping a drink. "Not, of course, that you should have any problems with that."

The Cathar Jedi chuckled. "Jairin is my name," he said. "Master Jairin."

Mobas had had enough of Masters in the past day or so to last him a lifetime. "You already know my name." he said. "I haven't really got any way to respond to that."

Jairin smiled. "I'm not talking to you for your conversational skills," he said. "I'm here to offer you a job."

Mobas blinked. "How am I supposed to complete this job? I haven't got any weapons, you Jedi took them all." He heard a familiar clink, and looked over. A suitcase was sitting on the table beside him. Jairin cocked an eyebrow.

"I must say I was rather impresed at the sheer volume of firepower you had on your person," he said, in conversational tones. "It's all in there. And Jinru mentioned you liked grenades, so we put a couple of those in, too."

Mobas flippied open the suitcase. his two primary blasters, his backup blaster, the secondary backup blaster, two flash-bang grenades, two stun grenades, and four high-power explosive grenades. A shrapnel grenade, too. He whistled.

"Yes," said Jairin. "Nice, no? I selected it based on Jinru's descriptions."

Mobas looked up, suspicion forming. "What's this job?" he asked.

"We'd like you to go back and kill Sedra Niro." said Jairin.

"How much?" asked Mobas.

"Or," said the Jedi Master, his tone lowering quickly, "You could stay here for the rest of your life."

"Maybe I'll come back when I'm ready to retire," said Mobas. He knew he'd go crazy were he confined here, and besides, he was too young for retirement to happen to him. And Ahbella was still back on Taris. Plus, the man back on Taris who'd ordered Niro's death would probably still pay up. He looked at the Jedi, who was watching him. "I'll do it." said Mobas. "But there may be Sith. I'm not sure I can handle them."

"I'll be going with you," said the Cathar Jedi. "I need you so I can get onto Taris. I'll handle the Sith, you handle any normal guards and Niro, and then I leave. You are then free to do whatever you want."

Mobas nodded. "I can get you to Taris, and take car of the others. You have a deal." The Jedi nodded, and offered his hand to Mobas. "We'll leave immediately. But you'll need some help first, from our disguises people."

Two hours later, with a fresh disguise, (The Jedi had expert disguises, much better than what Mobas had) and with all his weapons with him, Mobas pilotes a small shuttle up and off of Dantooine. He realized partway up that he'd not even said goodbye to Jinru. Oh well. One of these days, he'd come back to Dantooine and see how the young Jedi Knight was doing.

For the moment, though, he threw the hyperspace levers, and they shot into that insane speed, moving in a roundabout way towards Taris.

Two Jedi looked out the window of the temple and saw Mobas Rekkens ship take off, his ship raised itself and it then pointed itself at the sky and was gone. The two Jedi were still staring at the sky where the ship had gone.

"Hopefully the next time we meet we won't try and kill each other." Said one of the Jedi, both of the Jedi then laughed.

"I hope that he fulfills his duty." Said the second Jedi

"He will, he won't fail I promise you, Master Linson." Said Jinru

"I sure hope so." Said Linson taking his eye off of Jinru and back at the sky "You did well Jinru, especially on your first mission as a Jedi Knight, I knew you would do well, even when you were my padawan, you are a very talented Jedi, Jinru, I see you becoming a great Jedi." Said Linson still staring at the sky. Jinru looked at Linson and then looked at the sky, Jinru stared at the sky for a few more minutes and then bowed toward the sky, in signalling Mobas who wasn't there, and then walked off.

Virana approched Jinru quietly when Master Linson left. She stood with him for a moment before turning to face him.

"He'll be fine," she said, motioning to the departing ship. "He knows how to take care of himself."
