Araeana's eyes narrowed. She could tell that the question was meant simply to hurt her. She couldn't see how Chikara would seek to find enjoyment from her pain. "I would find a way to leave. Again. I'm a survivor, in case you've forgotten... Why have you come here Chikara?"

Chikara traced his mechanical finger alon some wires he deemed critical to this bucket. "I'm looking for something very powerful nearby. you are in my way." Blue sparks start to arc across his metalic arm from his spine, up toward his fingertips.

Araeana gasped. The circuitry was directly connected to the Canary's propulsion systems. If Chikara destroyed the wiring, she could be stuck on this barren rock for a very long time. "No! Don't!" Her mind raced, trying to think of anything she could use as leverage against Chikara. His mechanical arm whirred again, noisily. "Stop! I can help you!"

Chikara stopped, the arcs turned purple, then faded. "How can a failure like you help Me?" He chuckled softly, yet wanted to know what she would offer him.

Araeana's lips tightened, his comment hitting home. "I can fix you... Your arm, I mean. Looks like it needs a tune-up pretty bad..." She flashed an artificial grin. "A friend in need..."

Chikara extended his arm, and shafts slid tight into place, locking his arm rigid. "Fix it. you mess around, i kill you." He stood perfectly still, not looking at her.

Araeana shook her head. It was almost comical, how mistrustful he was of her. She sighed. "You'd better have a seat." She motioned towards the footlocker. "This might take a while." Araeana grabbed her tool kit and readied herself for work.

Chikara sat down, the gears and shafts in his arm motionless, stuck out at a ninety degree.

Araeana cringed as she sat down beside Chikara, surveying the unnatural angle of his arm. She felt very awkward, with the Sith cyborg's arm in her lap. She kept flinching as she poked and pulled at the exposed metal and wiring of Chikara's mechanical arm, unable to grasp that she wasn't hurting him. "So, what is this power you were on about?" She asked conversationally. "And why is it on my ship?"

"It's none of your concern." Chikara looked down at his arm. "Done yet?"

Araeana chuckled softly, rolling her eyes. "You still don't appreciate how much work goes into making machines run smoothly. Remember how impatient you were when I was getting that old speeder we found running, back on Dantooine?"

Chikara shook his head slightly. "If we had a more capable mechanic, it would have been done quickly."

Araeana yanked at a wire more forcefully than necessary. "I was the best mechanic at the enclave, and you know it."

Chikara sent a blue arc down his arm. "Be careful. And as I said. It could have been done faster."

The Twi-Lek rolled her eyes again. [If he's just trying to get me angry, I'm not going to give him the satisfaction] Several silent minutes passed, and Araeana put her tools back into the kit and looked down at her handiwork. "There. Shouldn't have any more problems with it for a while." She stood and gazed down at Chikara's mechanical arm. The strange whirring sound had stopped. Her eyes traveled back towards the steel plating stretched over his shoulder. It looked as though it had been welded directly onto his flesh... She shivered involuntarily. "Why... Did your master do that to you?"

Chikara's metalic arm clicked, the gears and pistons moved as he brought his arm in to inspect it. "You are the cause of this. I have lived with it so long i almost forgot."

"Fill me in, then." Chikara leaned back against the cold wall, and closed his eyes.

Araeana studied Chikara's still form intently, looking for some hope to grab onto. The boy she had grown up with must still be there somewhere. But even if he wasn't, how could she ever know? Try as she might, she couldn't sense anything behind Chikara's hard mask of cold cruelty. Again, resenting her ineptitude with the force, she threw up her hands. "Where do you want me to start?"

Chikara looked her over. He pointed to the scar above his eye. "When she gave me this."

Araeana looked up at the thin white line on his forehead. "Like I said, we thought we were there to stop you from killing a stranger... but your master knew... somehow he sensed that I would come. You were meant to kill me. That was your test. And you almost did it too, nearly chopping off my head-tail. Then Kira intervened. She held you at bay long enough for me to contact the academy. The last thing I saw before I lost consciousness was your old lightsaber melt clean through her chest. When I woke up, they thought it was me. They thought that I had killed her, out of jealousy for her force-sensitivity... I don't know... You left the lightsaber by me I assume. I got kicked out. Not charged, because they didn't have enough proof, but kicked out of the only home I knew. I started working for a clan of Hutts on Tattooine as a smuggler. That brought me here... What about you?" She gestured at his bionic body. "What's your story?"

Chikara looked at her, sensed she couldn't harm him more than insults, so he spoke. "Kira..." he spoke less monotonous, but still mechanical, "... was weak. You were weak... I had to punish you both for interfering. My master was displeased with my inability to kill you, so he felled my arm. In order for me to be able to serve him to my fullest extent, I paid my gambling credits on this replacement. My master welcomed me back hesitantly. As I watched him over the years, I found his weaknesses, and exploited them. My master is a sullen heap, buried in the wastes of Nar Shadaa. It's amazing what the Exchange will pay for a dead Jedi." He could see the look of horror on Araeana's face, and grinned. "I have been out collecting what I can to keep ahead of those who seek my power. Bribing, and killing those who get in my way. I would have done so to you, but I feel a hate within you." He sat silent for a while, letting all this sink in to her.

Araeana had listened in silence to Chikara's taunting speech. She could handle him calling her weak, incompetent, but his last remark had crossed a line. "Listen! I don't know who the hell you think you are, walking onto MY ship, ordering me around, insulting me... But just because you've turned your back on the Jedi doesn't mean that I ever, EVER will! I could never EVER feel HATE!" Araeana exploded at him. Then her features dissolved suddenly behind a mask of calm, her hands unclenched from their tight balled fists, and she breathed lightly, afraid she was making his point for him. She saw the corners of his mouth twitch. Angrily, she flipped her lekku back behind her again, turned on her heel, and stomped out of the cargo hold. She strode down the long twisting corridor into the cockpit, and plunked herself down into her chair.

Chikara chuckled coldly, and stood. He pulled on his hooded robes of black, and headed for the cockpit slowly, making mental notes of all the fracture points of the ship. He soon arrived at the cockpit. "No hate? What was that? I still see the dark swells in your palms caused by your nails."

"Ha ha," Araeana replied sarcastically, still hiding behind the calm mask. She shook her head. "Extreme annoyance maybe, but not hate." She gestured for Chikara to take the passenger's seat at her right-hand side. "What exactly is it that you want from me, Chikara? Why did you bother sneaking onto my ship? I think I have the right to know."

"If you are to know, then you will know. And my reasons for coming here are my own. So, That contact of yours..." He sat down. "Come to get your drugs yet?"

Araeana looked over the Canary's sensor logs. "Nope... Still no sign..." Araeana leaned back, lifting her legs to rest on a disabled console. An idea struck her suddenly, and she was surprised that her first reaction to the notion was an inexplicable sense of satisfaction. "Chikara..." She started, with a sideways glance at the pale black-robed man. "You didn't... arrange this... Did you? I mean, the call to deliver the shipment here... That wasn't from you, was it?"

Araeana smirked. "Sure... Let me put it this way... Should I be bothering to wait for this guy, or do you happen to know he's not going to make an appearance?"

Chikara got up and headed toward the star map. "Nar Shadaa.." he said, with little hesitation. "I have some un-finished business there..."

Araeana straightened up in her seat and set course for Nar Shadaa. She looked over at Chikara. "I hope you know that I expect payment for this. And if you did something nasty to my contact, someone's gonna have to pay for all that spice..."

Chikara returned to his seat. "What spice?" He tucked a small black case under his cloak when Araeana wasn't looking, and he turned to watch the scenery of the rock fall away. "And why should I pay you? I'm keeping you alive for..." He thinks a moment, his hand touching his saber. "Why am I keeping you alive?"

"Dunno..." Araeana said, hiding her slight fear with little effort. "I'm sure you've got a good reason though. You always did think things through... You know, until you went insane..."

Araeana's breath caught in her throat. "I... Just... a joke..." The heat of Chikara's sabre singed her skin, but she couldn't move away.

Araeana gulped loudly, her head-tails twitching. She massaged her neck, and slowly nodded. Silence engulfed the small cockpit as the turbulence of the barren moon's atmospheric pressure gave way into peaceful blackness.

Chikara looked out as the stars came clearer into view. "Does this little bucket even have a Hyperdrive?"
