Two years later
You can do this Anris...Just remember the Jedi code. The young Jedi thought to herself as she stared at the small squad of Sith troopers moving past her location. Nearly all of the remaining sith troopers on the planet were gathering for what looked like a last ditch effort to retake the Balmorra Arms Factory. The battle of Balmorra had been going on for many years now but it looked as if the Balmorran resistance and the Republic would finally be able to take back the planet once and for all. However, if the Empire managed to retake the Balmorra Arms Factory the battle would most likely continue for months if not years.
There is no emotion, There is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge
There is no passion, there is serenity
There is no chaos, there is harmony
There is no death, there is the force
The Resistance had been monitoring Imperial codes that they had managed to break the most recent one had provided some very interesting information. This squad was carrying important components that could power some of the remaining Imperial Walkers and was planning to meet up with a larger Imperial squad holding an area near the lower Sundari outpost. If this squad managed to get through, it would threaten all the resistance holdings in that area. And so Jedi Knight Anris had been dispatched to stop the squad from reaching it's destination.
Her hand went down to her lightsaber and she slowly began to gather the force around her as she prepared to leap towards her opponents only to feel a sudden disturbance in the force above her. She slowly looked up and saw a dark masked figure above her wearing black armor with the insignia of the Sith Empire on the chest.
“Jedi. You should have stayed on Tython.” The figure said simply as he jumped from the outcropping above her and landed directly in front of her with his lightsaber ignited. Anris took a step back and she pulled the lightsaber from her belt and held it in front of her with both hands on the hilt. “You can fight or you can run. Either way, I will complete my mission.” She said quietly as she stared at the figure. The imperials didn't seem to be aware of anything going on as they continued moving on. Either they notice the battle going on or they knew who this was and had the utmost faith in his ability to stop her.
If the Imperials did notice her and did decide to get involved however she would have to deal with this mysterious sith and a squad of Imperial troopers and she knew she would be hopelessly outmatched if that happened. She freed one of her hands for a moment and threw back her hood, revealing her blue skin tone and the single horn on her head. “I feel I should warn you. I've fought my share of Sith before.” She warned as her opponent seemed to freeze as she threw her hood back. “What's the matter, Sith?” She asked mockingly. “Scared?”
The Sith's lightsaber hit the ground and deactivated.
“Anris...” The figure said in a shocked tone.
“How do you know my name?” She asked in a tone that was tinged with confusion and shock. She looked down at the Sith's lightsaber and realized that the sith had made no effort to retrieve the lightsaber. All he was doing was staring at her from underneath the mask. “I asked you a question: How do you know my name?”
The Sith raised his hands up towards his mask and Anris heard the faint sound of a lock that presumably held the mask to the Sith's face deactivated and the mask hit the ground with a thud. Anris's eyes widened in shock as she saw the Sith's face. A red Zabrak face with black tattoos covering it with a scar going down the left side.
“I know your name.” Toryal said quietly. “After all, you're mother and I were the ones who gave it to you.” Anris's lightsaber hit the ground and deactivated just like her father's had as she recognized the figure from the hologram she had viewed nearly once a day. She had never thought that they would meet like this, on the war-torn world of Balmorra.
“Dad.” She whispered as a small device on Toryal's belt beeped once and a female voice began to sound from it.
“Toryal? Are you there? What happened? Did you find the Jedi?”
Toryal slowly reached down to his belt and grabbed the device before speaking into it without breaking eye contact with Anris. “Vette. You need to meet me here now. You need to grab whatever you can and meet me at the cliff near the Lower Sundari Outpost as soon as you can.”
“What's the matter? Are you in trouble?”
“Anris.” Toryal said simply into the device. For a brief moment, Anris didn't hear anything. Not even breathing. And then she heard the voice whisper three simple words that brought a tear to Anris's eye. “Our little girl?”
“Yes.” Toryal said quietly. “It's time. We've been planning for this day for a very long time. It's time to leave.”
“Be there as soon as I can. Don't do anything.” Vette said as Toryal shut down the communicator and raised his hand above his head.
“I surrender. I surrender myself to the Jedi.”
