Per'dra heard the blaster shots and ducked. At the same time, she threw her lightsaber in a spinning arc toward Varik, now possessed by Tulak Hord. This was a technique that was not her finest--she was far better in the mechanics of close-combat dueling--but, nevertheless, it might still be enough to throw her now-mortal enemy off guard.

Vlalkor and Zarev could only watch in horror as the body of one of the group went right through the window and hit the ground in a heap. Zarev looked up at the broken window. He could hear the sounds of blaster bolts being fired and lightsabers crashing agianst each other. But he could only catch a glimpse of the figures when they moved into view.

Zarev pointed at Kif's body. It looked like he was still breathing. "Do whatever you can to stabilize him and then get him to the medical bay aboard the ship." Zarev said as he struggled to his feet and headed for the ship. "As soon as he's aboard I'll take over. You need to get over there and stop whoever is attacking everyone."

Vlalkor saluted and reached into his belt and pulled out a small syringe and injected it into Kif's arm. He gently picked up the limp body and quickly carried him towards the ship, He passed by Zarev who was limping towards the ship.

"You can count on Havoc squad sir." Vlalkor said as he ran up the ramp of the ship.

Light watched in horror as Kif flew through the window. He had fully recovered and even helped Kif point his gun via the Force. He saw the assault on Varik and decided that, even if he didn't plan to kill or wound his friend's body, he should keep his sabers handy.

He used the Force to draw them towards himself, and they slapped his hands as he cought them. He returned them to his belt and watched as Varik, or Horde, dealt with the attacks.

He sent a message to Varik's female assailant. If he survives this, we can hold him down with the Force. If we want to save Varik, one of us may have to journey into his mind.

Traver ran to Varik, with a knife strapped to his boot, but he wondered if it would help against a lightsaber. He took a dart from his belt and put it in his pistol.

Hord wasn't fully distracted, however. He heard the whirr of lightsabers, and blaster shots. He raised his hand into the air, and released a Force wave - knocked everything back within a 5 meter radius.

''Stand back, whatever you are. We don't have time for dusty Sith lords.''

"How about you make me, spice junkie?", Hord replied, as he lifted the knocked-back smuggler into the air with the Force. He shook him back and forth in the air as if he was a ragdoll, before slamming him into the backwards wall.

"Who's next?", he asked aloud, advancing towards Per'dra.

In her own mind, the female Jedi Knight heard the message from her mysterious ally through the Force: If he survives this, we can hold him down with the Force. If we want to save Varik, one of us may have to journey into his mind.

In the split second after she heard Tulak Hord's threat, she responded: That's a fantastic idea, but the big question is: Will WE survive this? If Varik--er, Tulak Hord--wins, he's going to kill us all if we're not already dead... Nevertheless, Per'dra still held to her previous plan: fight or perish. If there was one thing she knew about Sith Lords, it was that they loved to prove how weak and pathetic the Jedi were. She wouldn't let Tulak Hord have that satisfaction easily! All of a sudden, she had an idea: Even though she'd been previously trained as a Consular, she'd learned a new technique since then and could cloak herself in the Force and become invisible. Thus, in a flash, she did so.

Light had sparred with Varik on few occasions, but had fought several battles at his side. He knew how well his new enemy could fight, but that he was also getting tired from the energy required to use the Force.

Light ignited his sabers, hearing the female's message just before she vanished. Knowing that she couldn't spontaneously teleport, Light approached Horde from his side, hoping to draw his attention. He sincerly hoped she wouldn't leave when she had the opportunity.

As he advanced, he began moving slower, because he moved into a defensive, but mobile, stance.

Corsail ducked as Variks forcewave sent his bolts flying back towards him. "Blast!" I need a plan, if i just keep shooting directly at him he's just going to block. He thought to himself. Then he had an idea, something that wouldn't make the loud noise a blaster would. He pulled out his grapple hook gun and fire it towards one of Variks legs, the hook wrapped around his leg and stabbed into his skin.

He wasn't sure it it was going to work, Varik was a bit bigger then him. Corsail pulling with all of his strength pulled on the gun, trying to yank Varik off his feet.

Hord noticed Per'dra surround herself in a Force Cloak. "So, you're both a fool and a coward? Your technique is imperfect - I could see your shimmer, and I could hear the hum of your lightsaber.", he said, scolding her.

"And you.", he said, pointing a finger at Light. "Standing in the corner, watching his friends get picked off - one by one. Too cowardly to accept reality - just like your vaunted Jedi Council during the Mandalorian Wars."

As he strode over to Light - he felt a sharp pain in his left ankle. He looked to see a grappling hook cut into his ankle, and he screamed out in pain as it cut into his tendon, causing to him fall onto the ground. Raising a lightsaber, he cut the rope off of the hook, and then yanked it out of his skin. He stood up - using the pain to fuel his anger - and threw the hook at Corsail as if it were a tomahawk.

Vlalkor made sure that Kif was still alive as he was placed in the bacta tank and he caught Zarev as he came up the ramp and stumbled. "Sorry sir, but your going to the medbay."

Zarev smiled slightly as he was escorted into the medical bay and sat down on one of the beds. "I agree. I don't think that I can keep going much longer. But you need to get to where that dark presence is and stop it. I have faith that you can stop whatever it is. After all, Havoc squad has gone up against force users before."

Vlalkor saluted. "You can count on me sir." He said as he turned and ran down the ramp and headed for the building where the battle was taking place. He grabbed his blaster rifle from his shoulder holster and crept along until he saw a slight shimmering in the air and the rest of the group going after Varik.

I thought as much. He's been weird ever since his eyes turned color. He thought as he pulled a concussion grenade off his belt and launched it at him.

"Take cover!" He shouted as he actiavted his armor's retractable blades and than opened up with a volly of blaster bolts.

Alright, he most likely is going to try and deflect the bolts back at me which means I have to be ready. He thought as he continued firing at him.

Raising a lightsaber, he cut the rope off of the hook, and then yanked it out of his skin. He stood up - using the pain to fuel his anger - and threw the hook at Corsail as if it were a tomahawk.


Corsail tried to duck out of its way but with the hooks hoop-like shape it managed to catch one of Corsails arm, cutting into a bone. He rolled into cover, clutching his arm.

"Take cover!"

While he was removing the hook from his arm, he heard someone shooting of sprays of blaster bolts. Did the trooper finally get here? He wondered. He leaned out from behind the crate he was using as cover and shot off a few blaster bolt towards Varik. Does this guy run off of endless energy? He thought to himself.

"Cowardly?" He's losing his grip, as he would know what I think of cowards and that I am no longer attached to the Jedi. Varik must be fighting him.

Light winced as the hook sunk into his enemy's flesh. He moved back several steps as Horde threw the hook back towards its point of origin. He heard "Take cover", and shielded himself with both his sabers and the Force in a way he had not been able to when he had been hit with the first concussion grenade.

He thought of the female for a moment, but his senses were assailed by the effects of the concussion grenade before he could look for her, though they were significantly minimalized by the protection he had hastily put up.

Inwardly, Per'dra seethed. You have called me that once, and you shall NOT do so twice. Even though her technique of Force cloaking was indeed imperfect, it was enough of a distraction while Tulak Hord was pulling Corsail's grappling hook out of his ankle. She took this moment to disconnect the two blades of her saberstaff and place them on each side of Hord's neck in scissor fashion. One wrong move by this "dusty Sith Lord" and he'd wind up dead. Unfortunately, however, so would Varik, and Per'dra wanted to save him.

"Now," she hissed. "Where's my former ally, you desiccated Sith corpse?!"

Instead of redirecting the blaster bolts at Vlalkor, he redirected the concussion grenade - the blaster bolts flying harmlessly past him.

With the concussion grenade staggering Vlalkor backward, Hord lifted the soldier off of the ground with the Force. He used an advanced form of 'Force Whirlwind', as instead of the target swirling around - it had ground particles swirling around the target. In Hord's case, sand.

He used the Force to lift the sand, and used it to swirl around Vlalkor - cutting him off from his supply of air - asphyxiating him. He then attempted to condense the sand until it was merely millimeters away from Vlalkor, but it was straining his abilities. After a few tense seconds, he instead slammed Vlalkor into Light Fang.

However, he focused so much into his technique, he did not notice Per'dra until the last second - with her lightsabers at his neck.

"Now, where's my former ally, you desiccated Sith corpse?!"

"I could sense the anger emanating from you. You would've made a great Sith - especially when you were on Korriban", he mused.

"Or did you think I was asleep in my tomb? I saw you and Pfon - you killed that pretender like a true Sith would. Yet you stay with the Jedi."

He weighed the odds that were stacked against him. He's lost much of his Force energy, which means that Varik is gaining strength. One 'wrong' move by him, and Per'dra will kill him - if she has the guts. But she is foolish, she will kill her 'friend' also. However, he still has enough Force energy - one card left to play. He could collapse the walls, ceilings, and floors of the building - burying everyone in the wreckage. He could regain consciousness - leave all of them to die - and find a new body.

However, he stared at the sabers pointed at his neck.

"Ah, you stay with the Jedi because you are a coward.", he noticed her begin to fume. "Oh, did that get you angry? Are you going to kill me? No, you aren't. You're bluffing. You're too much of a coward to act on your instincts. And for what? Varik? Even if you try to save him, and somehow extract me from his body, if you make one wrong move - he will die. Do you want to take that risk? Or you could let me go, and I won't kill you all."

He knew he was bluffing about the 'killing Varik' part, but these Jedi will believe anything. The quality of Force users have diminished ever since Ludo Kressh and Naga Sadow had their childish scuffle over control of the Sith.

Or you could let me go, and I won't kill you all."

"Let you go?" Per'dra was incredulous. "What makes you think I'll trust you? It's true that Sith lie, but they don't always lie. As for Varik..." She had to think carefully. "I could say he's of no concern to me, but that would be an untruth that you'd see right through. I suppose it all comes down to this: the true Varik, as a Jedi, would sacrifice his own life for the greater good. Right now, he's buried deep within your shell--too deeply for me to pry out, if you understand my meaning! Therefore, I'm afraid I'm going to have to slay both of you. Varik? I'm sorry, but there's no way I'm going to let this Sith Lord keep his hold..."

Light caught the near unconcious body of another ally who's name he knew not, redirecting his momentum by turning while he caught the unnamed male. When he placed this ally on his feet, he was likely unbalanced because not all of his momentum had dissipated, but Light had little time for that.

He moved quickly to Varik, hearing the words of both the female and Horde. Light was unsure about venturing into another's mind, especially with a hostile presence there. He had trained briefly in the art, enough to be able to pick up on what moves an enemy was thinking about using in combat, but hadn't excelled.

"Hey, there are still more of us than him. He's not too powerful; I can see he's sweating. Do you have any skill in reading minds with the Force?" He asked quickly after her most recent words of "no way I'm going to let this Sith Lord keep his hold..."

Vlalkor slowly got back to his feet and spat out a mouthful of sand and checked to make sure that their mysterious ally was unharmed before turning to look at Varik who was now at the mercy of Per'dra.

She can't be serious...There is no possible way that she can kill Varik even if something has taken hold of his body.

Vlalkor set his rifle for stun and pointed it at Per'dra before getting another idea and pointing it at Varik.

"I agree with him." He said pointing at the man who he had been thrown into. "I don't think we should kill Varik even if something has control of him. I say we stun him and than try to figure something else out." "Besides...as a member of Havoc squad I won't allow anyone to kill him. Whoever tries to kill him will have me to deal with."

Per'dra saw the logic in the soldier's words; however, she did not stand down. She was not going to let Varik/Tulak Hord escape on her watch! "Very well," she said slowly. "Fire, and quickly, before he has a chance to use his powers again..."

"Fire, and quickly, before he has a chance to use his powers again..."

Vlalkor nodded once and tried to fire the rifle only to have it make a clattering sound and one of the lights turned from green to red. Vlalkor sighed heavily. The sand must have wrecked something on the inside of the rifle.

"Just a second." He muttered as he dropped the rifle and pulled out his blaster pistol and set it for stun.

"Sorry about this Varik. But hopefully you'll wake up as yourself once this is done" He said quietly as he fired a stun bolt directly at Varik's chest.

"I can't believe this, you stunned him?" Corsail walked towards the group standing over Variks body. "He tried to kill everyone here, just put put a blaster bolt into his head so we can get on with the mission." He turned to look at Vlalkor, "Variks either a traitor or insane, I can't see one good reason to let this guy live."

Hord just stood there, and watched as the blaster bolt entered his chest. He sank to the ground - but not entirely unconscious. He was using all of his remaining strength to ignore the tranquilizer and not slip into unconsciousness - leaving him in a very weakened state.

"Stopp...himm...while....he's...weakened...", Varik was able to sputter, breaking out of Hord's hold for a few seconds.

"You" Light said pointing at the female "I need your help. We are going to bring Varik back, but we have to help him fight off Horde. We should use this time wisely, because he has exausted his physical vessel, thus weakening himself mentally. We have to journey into Varik's mind using the Force. The rest of you need to stand watch. If any of us come back and anything seems off, do not hesitate. Either knock us out swiftly, or kill us."

Light looked to the others for confirmation that he had been heard and that they would comply. He recognized a couple of the individuals, roughly. He had always been better with faces than names.

The female Jedi Knight nodded. "My name is Per'dra Yllari," she said matter-of-factly, "and as for journeying into someone's mind, I've never done it. I've tried, but not succeeded." She remembered the attempt as clearly as if it were yesterday, and also her victim. Master Lenina Karos had fought her off almost immediately, however, which made her wonder: If I couldn't venture into a Jedi Master's consciousness, what makes me think I'll be able to infiltrate the mind of someone possessed by a Sith Lord? Then she became fully aware of how weak Varik/Tulak Hord was. I'll have to try, along with our new ally...

"On three, shall we?" Per'dra asked him gently. "One...two..."

"Three" Light murmered quietly in time with Per'dra.
His eyes closed, but he reached out to Varik's mind which, like the market place of most worlds, was noisy and obviously conflicted. Light noticed another presence with him, and recognized it from his brief contact before. It was Per'dra.

While Light had never done this before, there would be little time before Horde was back to full strength and killing him would be the only way out. This was not what he wanted, as he and Varik were friends. Light surged into Varik's mind. It was split into two, with a small part fighting off the larger part.

The battle for Varik's mind was brief but fierce. Hord's influence, albeit in its weakened state, still controlled most of Varik's mind. However, the combined power of the three force-users destroyed what remained of Hord's defenses.

The surroundings of Varik's mind changed. What was once a vast, gray void, were now the sands of the Valley of the Dark Lords. Light and Per'dra were standing in the center of the Valley, with Varik's comatose body about fifteen meters away. Standing directly behind it was a dark specter, with black robes, and an even blacker, featureless mask. In it's hand was an ancient serrated warblade, and on his belt - the hilt of a lightsaber.

"The Valley of the Dark Lords." Hord said in a didactically tone. "The final resting place for some of the greatest Sith in history. A Force Nexus of dark power. It was here where I led my successful campaigns of Yn and Chabosh." Several tuk'ata appeared behind him. "And here was where I created the tuk'ata, learning from the ancient tomes of Karness Muur."

"This place has been a catalyst for all four of our lives, a shame that you never put it to much use beyond.", he said, berating the three.

"This isn't the last you've seen of me. I guarantee it.", he stated, and both he and the several tuk'ata disappeared in a swirl of black mist.

***

Varik, physically battered and worn, struggled to stand. He felt like death - utterly exhausted. He fell to the ground again, and spit blood out of his mouth. He pushed himself up with a groan, clutched his side, and looked at the others with a look of shame clearly evident in his eyes. He limped quickly out of the building, and moved swiftly towards the ship. Unwilling, or unable, to glimpse at Kif's broken body, he shut himself in his quarters, locking the door. He laid on the bed, staring at the ceiling.

((Adding a new character.))

Vlalkor watched with his blaster pistol pointed at Varik as he rose to his feet and simply let the building with a look of shame in his eyes. Vlalkor knew that he wasn't force sensative but he couldn't help but feel that something about him was different.

"Well...thats that I guess. We should probably regroup on the ship and discuss what happened here." He said quietly to Per'dra and the others as he turned and left the building. He was carefully following Varik just in case and he boarded the ship and watched as he ran to his bunk and shut the door behind him.

Something is wrong here, he couldn't help but think.



Dune sea
Tatooine


The sounds of lightsaber combat could be heard throughout the dune sea as two figures battled it out. One was wearing the armored robes of a sith warrior and was smiling a dark smile as he toyed with his opponet who was wearing the robes of the sith assassin and was using a double bladed lightsaber. The one wearing the assasin robes was quickly losing ground and was struggling to hold her own as she attempted to counter the lightsaber strikes from her foe

"Your life was over the moment your master died." The warrior chuckled. "You should have known that acts of mercy would result in your death."

The assassin brought her lightsaber above her opponet and attempted to try and strike her opponet near the neck only to have him block the attack and his lightsaber made a medium size cut on her arm.

"The thing you seem to forget Velros is that I was trained by Darth Toriyas herself while you trained at the feet of a lowly overseer." She gasped as she suddenly used what was left of her strength to blast the warrior with force lighting.

The warrior never saw it coming.

As the warrior roared in pain, a small opening appeared in his movements and the assassin slammed her lightsaber into the warrior's stomach and than quickly pulled it back out and slammed the lightsaber hilt against his neck, breaking his neck.

The assassin smiled grimly as she looked out across the dune sea and her gaze fell on her own small wrecked ship. She had been shot down and she had no idea where the warrior had hid his ship. She couldn't sense any other lifeforms.

Please don't let me die out here...she thought as the smiled faded and she began walking what she thought was north. She had passed over a small town when she had been coming in for a crash landing and she hoped that she was heading in the right direction.

I've come too far to be stopped by a desert...I've survived assassination attempts and traps and betryals from those I trusted most. I won't die! she thought, she was so tired and out of focus that she accidently transmitted part of her message through the force. Since she wasn't at full strength the message didn't go far.

But it went far enough.


Shan

Zarev muttered quietly to himself as he tried to sit up as he heard a whisper through the force.

Betrayels from those I trusted...Won't die...I won't die!

He tried to reach out through the force and tried to locate where the whisper had come from but in his weakend state he could only tell that it was from somewhere on Tatooine...

"Vlalkor...he said quietly as he watched the solder walk by the door. "When Per'dra is onboard...I need to talk to her. There's something wrong...someone is in trouble here. But I can't locate them..."

"understood sir." Vlalkor said as he headed to the bridge.

That was, without a doubt, the worst mission I've ever tried to undertake since... Per'dra Yllari's mind reeled with anger, disappointment and the agony of defeat. Not only were we attacked by an assassin that none of us could sense through the Force, but Varik was possessed by a long-dead Sith Lord! Unbelievable! Disgusted with herself despite her training, which had taught her to suppress emotion, the Jedi Knight boarded the ship in seething silence.

As Vlalkor continued on his way to bridge he saw Per'dra board the ship. He could tell that she was angry But he had been assigned to assist the jedi in anyway possible and since Zarev was in too much pain to move he had to ask her for him.

"Excuse me, Knight Per'dra. I was just visiting with Zarev and he asked if he could speak with you. He seems to think that there is someone on Tatooine in trouble but he can't get a fix on whoever it is in the force. I'm not going to say that I know about jedi stuff but I'm going to assume that it's some sort of jedi matter."

With that, Vlalkor turned and headed for the bridge.

Zarev heard some of the conversation from the medbay but the majority of it was blocked from his mind as he heard the same voice that he had heard when he had been fighting the assassin echo through his mind again.

Can't stop...Can't stop...Someone stop me...

Who are you...?he thought to himself as he tried to get a fix on the voice through the force but he couldn't sense anything except the words echoeing through his head.

Per'dra gave a salutatory nod to Vlalkor and went to find Zarev. "Is...anything wrong?" As deep in concentration as he was, she didn't want to spoil it. "The mission was harder than I ever thought it would be. Is that how you feel, too?"

"Is...anything wrong?"

Zarev nodded. "I think that there is some sort of force sensative here. And I think that whoever it is is in trouble. Whoever it is...I was able to recieve a message through the force although I think the message was not meant to be heard."

Zarev lowered his head in shame. He was still too weak after his battle with the assassin to locate whoever this was. "I can tell that whoever this person is, they're on Tatooine but I can't focus in on their exact location."

"I'm hoping that you might be able to get an exact fix on whoever this is and direct Vlalkor to pilot the ship to their location to see if we can help. And...there is another matter...something I'm still not sure about."

Zarev raised his head. "I think someone is trying to contact me through the force. Something other than this mysterious person on Tatooine. I can hear the same words echoing through my head but I can't locate whoever this person is through the force."

He smiled sadly. "You must think I'm crazy. Hearing these voices in my head must make you think that I've gone off the deep end. But despite the remote possibility, I think this second voice could somehow help us find Voleran."

"The mission was harder than I ever thought it would be. Is that how you feel, too?"

Zarev looked up at her and smiled weakly. "To be honest, I didn't think that I was ready for a mission like this at all. But yes...I didn't expect it to be this difficult. I assumed that there would be fighting but...not on a scale like this."

The female Jedi Knight nodded. "Varik's being overtaken by Tulak Hord certainly didn't help things. How and why in the Force did that Sith Lord target him at this particular point in time? Hord has been dead for far longer than I've been alive, and I know for certain that presences like his don't just reach for random targets when they find it convenient." She voiced a suspicion that she had never dared to before. "I'm not saying that Varik wanted to be in league with Hord, but something tells me there was an uncharacteristic weakness in our comrade's mind. A fissure in his mental armor, so to speak, upon which Hord capitalized."

Raising an eyebrow, Per'dra turned to Zarev. "You believe that someone is trying to contact you through the Force? I don't think you're crazy--in fact, far from it. When I was on Korriban, being tortured by the Sith in the last mission upon which I was sent, my own Master tried to do the same thing. Yun Xiaolin did succeed, and perhaps I can help you find out who's trying to succeed in contacting you. In order to do that, however..." She trailed off.

Folding her legs into a lotus position as she sat on the floor of the ship, she told Zarev, "Please take hold of my hands. It will help me attune to your mind, and to the frequency on which this person--or people--wants to reach you."

Traver walked up to Varik, patting him upon his shoulder. He took a cigarette and his lighter from his pocket and smoked it. He blew the smoke right into Varik's face.

''Well, if these things keep happening it won't be a happy ending for any of us. And they ask me why I don't like jedi.''

"Thanks for slicing the door.", Varik said with a grin as he sat up, seeing his friend Traver walk into the room. His pat on the shoulder reassured Varik.

Varik coughed as smoke blew straight into his face. Under normal circumstances, he would have punched Traver in the face, but he was too weak to exert himself at the moment.

''Well, if these things keep happening it won't be a happy ending for any of us. And they ask me why I don't like Jedi.''

"I hear ya.", he said with a groan. "Anyways, I'm going to check on Kif, care to join me?"

He walked down the corridor into the med-bay, where he saw Light checking up on Kif's broken body.

"How is he?", he asked in a worried tone.

"Please take hold of my hands. It will help me attune to your mind, and to the frequency on which this person--or people--wants to reach you."

Zarev was speechless for a moment. He didn't expect Per'dra to believe him honestly but he was relieved that she did. It was nice to work with someone who had also had someone communicating with them through the force.

"Very well...I must warn you though...since my master died, I have been having trouble centering myself. So...just be careful."

Zarev, with some slight hesitation took ahold of Per'dra's hand and began tryinig to clear his mind. He succeded after a few moments just as the voice that had tried contacting him earlier spoke to him once again.

Stop me...Stop me...I can't stop... the voice repeated over and over in a voice that had no emotion to it. Stop me...stop me...I can't stop

Dune sea
Tatooine


Her body was failing her.

The assassin muttered nonsense to herself as she attempted to try and find out where she had gone wrong. She should have been able to see some sign of life even if it was a mosture farmer or a tusken raider but instead she saw nothing but endless dunes of sand as far as the eye could see.

I either need to find help or I'm going to die out here. She thought. She now had two options: Die out in the sands of tatooine and let the sith win by having her die.

Or send out a call for aid through the force and hope that someone heard her plea for help.

She reached out through the force, using the last of her strength to search for a mind that was force sensative, that could hear her plea for aid. Someone...anyone...help she sent through the force as the last of her strength left her and she collapsed on the sand.

((LDR, do you think you could have Varik pick up her distress call and notify the others?))

((Uhh...Varik doesn't use the Force very much, but alright.))

"Anyways, I'm sure you're expecting an explanation to...", Varik began to say, before he picked up a message through the Force.

Someone...anyone...help...

Varik never knew he was still potent enough to receive messages. He had thought that his strength in the Force had atrophied from disuse, due to only using it to boost his combat effectiveness.

"I just received a message through the Force. I'm going to investigate. Light, Traver, care to join me?", Varik asked.

Light heard fragments of the message as well, but kept it to himself as he would sometimes catch thoughts of unguarded minds.

Light raised an eyebrow. He was still concerned about Varik's well-being. Kif had been permanently blinded and in poor shape. However, he appeared to be recovering.

Light gave Varik a harmless pat on the arm and said

"You know I've got your back, let's go."

Traver didn't hear anything and looked at the Jedi with their ''mind messages''.

He rolled his eyes and then he extinguished the cigarette with his boot. He blew out one last smoke and then softly punched Varik in his back.

''I'm always in for another adventure, mate.''

Per'dra shuddered. "I hear it--him--her," she said after a long and awkwardly tense moment. "Someone does indeed need help, but it chills me that this person's voice is utterly devoid of emotion. It's almost as if he or she were being turned into a droid, and that does a disservice to droids because most of them have more personality than their voice does. I hate to say it, but it scares me."

Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering...

Shaking her head as if to clear it from these unsettling thoughts, she let go of Zarev's hands. How warm and comforting they had felt, after such a colossal and heartbreaking failure of a mission! "What's your theory on our 'contact'?"

Zarev smiled weakly as Per'dra let go of his hand. On some level he felt disappointment but he didn't really know why. "It scares me as well. I don't know why this person has been trying to contact me but I won't let whoever it is down..."

"What's your theory on our 'contact'?"

"I don't know...All I know is that I started hearing this voice very shortly after our confrontation with the assassin on Tatooine. I can't help but think somehow the voice and the assassin are connected."



Vlalkor had been walking past the medbay when he heard Varik talking about soem sort of distress call being transmitted through the force.

"If you want to, I can pilot the ship to where the distress call is coming from. All you have to do is tell me where to go."
