SUMMARY

 

You and some others have been taken by Lady Proxima in order to do her bidding in exchange for food and shelter. However, what you don't know is that everything you do is opposed to what your beliefs were back in your home planet, and you now have to go against everything you've ever known.

Soon you are met with the Cloud-Riders, who offer you a way out of the gang, but on one condition: you’d join their cause and fight the Empire. 

Will you become part of the Empire once you escape, or will you choose to rebel?

Mizuki Starstrider

Mizuki sighed. She'd had to get up early AGAIN with almost nothing to do. Lady Proxima put her in charge of the smugglers among the White Worms. She was responsible for food supplies for the Grindalids, the scumrat kids and of course the other ranking members of the gang. Thankfully, she had her own smuggling network going. She had her pet iridescent lizard-bat, a female she named Kicee, meaning "Sapphire" in her native language for her resemblance to the rare stone. She'd seen Lady Proxima wearing one so she got the name idea from that. The thing was currently perched on her shoulder, sleeping for the moment. She was currently directing her team at moving the new supplies her network got her. Stolen Imperial guns, Banking Clan food stores, that sort of thing. She'd eaten the awful food at breakfast. Fish slop, ugh. She hated the stuff. Everyone knew her and that her lizard-bat was trained to help keep everyone in line. "OI! WATCH IT WITH THAT! Those are explosive ya know!" Mizuki snapped, glaring at a scumrat who fumbled a box of thermal detonators. She was kinder than most of the bosses of course, and her Twi'lek reflexes to help the little girl catch it. It was hard to tell but judging from her size, she couldn't be older than five standard years. Kicee stirred, perking up a bit at her owner's tone. But she relaxed when the little girl scuttled off to carefully place her burden on the new stack. "Go tell the cooks I said you earned a treat kiddo." She hissed, giving the girl a note in her writing to give the chefs. That earned a happy squeak of thanks before she darted off, her work done for today. Lady Proxima let her run things her way, especially since she did things so efficiently. She never over worked her scumrats, her adult workers or droids. Lady Proxima had taken notice and promoted her only recently. Her lekku twitched, alerting her to someone else nearby but she ignored it. Ever since Qi'ra and Solo left, the Grindalids had been cracking down on the humans and non-humans who could go to the surface during the day when they couldn't. 

(Interactions are open! Mizuki's lizardbat will let her know if someone needs to talk to her. I know I didn't put Kicee in the form but pets are allowed as long as they fit the Star Wars universe)

Nikita Haerlo ~

Although Nikita was a Technician, today she was assigned to pick pocket. Nikita had woken a little later than normal today, which had resulted in Lady Proxima getting quite annoyed and assigning her to be a pick pocket for the day. Nikita had little experience and was likely to get caught, but at this point, she desperately needed shelter. 

 

A twi’lek passed by Nikita with a small pet. She looked at the twi’lek for a moment and sighed. That girl probably didn’t have to pick pocket today. Nikita made her way into the streets and looked around for someone sitting still. She found an older man, staring at his drink and motioning to a droid. Slowly, Nikita crept towards him. She saw a small shiny thing sticking out of his pocket. 

 

Nikita pulled it out and ran. 

 

“Hey, you!” The man called and grabbed her shoulder. Nikita stumbled and stopped, looking at him with fear. She slowly slipped the shiny object into her back pocket and waved nervously. 

 

“Hello...?” Nikita grinned cheekily. 

 

“You ran off so fast, are you okay kid?” The old man furrowed his brows. The droid whizzed around him and perched onto an overhanging planter. 

 

“Yeah, I just... um... have to get home,” she shrugged. “Nice talking to you!” She said and continued to run off. She had made it! Nikita picked up the pace a little. Suddenly, she felt a weight lifted from her back pocket. She whirled around and saw the object on the wet stone ground. The man was looking from her to the object. 

 

Slowly, he walked towards her, picked up the object, and glared at her. Nikita was still for a moment. Then she broke off into a run, pushing past people to get back. Although she was scared of how Proxima would react to her bringing back nothing, now she was scared for her life. Nikita kept running until she bumped into the same twi’lek, sending herself and the girl’s pet falling onto the ground with a thump. 

 

((Sorry if I get some parts wrong, I remember like nothing from this part of the movie))

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Mar-Shayal had barely touched his breakfast. He was still poking it. Lingering around it far longer then he should. The night before something had happened and he couldn't get it out of his mind.

 

Flashback- ((This won't be a common lingth for my posts by the way for anyone afraid of mammoth posts. I just really wanted to do this scene and was still unsure if it would come to pass even after I asked about the time required. It's important to Mar-Shayal's story))

 

 Mar-Shayal had been awoken in the d.ead of the night by another boy.

Technickly he should have been awake but it was a rare momment where he wasn't needed and he had chosen to try to get some extra sleep in.....only for someone to fine a need for him AFTER he had done so.

“Pssst! Hey! HEY!” the boy whispered so as not to bother anyone else.

Mar-Shayal grumbled a “What?”

The other boy said “Jawas are good with tec right?”

Mar-Shayal rubbed his eyes and replied “I don’t know, I guess? I’m not bad. At least... that’s what I’ve been told.” Almost before he had finished the other boy said “Great! Let’s go. I found something awesome.”

Mar asked “Can it wait?” the other boy grabbed his arm and pulled him from the bed with a “No. Come on!”

Mar-Shayal grumbled an “Alright. I’m coming.” and with that they had darted off away from the multitude of bunks and up out into the dark streets.

The other boy lead him at a pace so fast poor Mar-Shayal with his short little legs was almost dragged along until they entered a bar.

 

The bar was mostly dark except a back room from which a lot of yelling was coming. Mar-Shayal didn’t like this one bit but he’d already come this far. There really wasn’t any turning back now or else the other boy might tell the others he agreed to something then bailed. So….when the other boy entered the room Mar-Shayal followed. It smelled of various drinks and d.rugs like bars around this part tended to. But there was also a scent of burned rubber, loose oil and a lot of B.O. The last thing might owe to the sheer amount of people there. Mar-Shayal had to weave between legs to see what everyone was staring at.

 

Eventually he nearly bumped into a fence encircling a makeshift arena. Inside that arena a pathetically under armed mouse droid wielding only a spinning blade was going up against some sort of spiderlike droid. The spider one looked a lot more formidable with a drill on its face under its lowest eye and each leg tipped with some other tool. It circled the mouse droid then tried to pounce. The mouse droid showed a surprising amount of skill or luck (it was h.ard to tell) in darting forward at just the right moment to cause the spider one to slam into the fence. The crowded gave an “Oh!” reacting to the force at which the impact had happened. While the spider droid was down the mouse droid drove in to start sawing. The spider droid s.eized the arm of the drill and desperately tried to push it to the side. It managed to protect its body but sacrificed one leg as it tried to maneuver itself out of the way. The spider droid said some things that Mar recognised as droid cussing then, still holding the mouse droid’s arm it jumped onto its back to try to push the thing’s own blade into itself.

Mar-Shayal shut his eyes so he didn’t see if the spider droid succeeded or had simply done some other violent thing but it won whatever it did. The clean up person was picking up the remains of the mouse droid when Mar dared look next.

 

All around people passed around betted things. A lot was the usual credits but Mar saw one person hand their jacket to another.

 

That person must have been having a bad day.

 

Suddenly someone tapped the jawa on the shoulder and he jumped before realizing it was just the boy who had brought him there. The boy said “That spider thing. What type of droid was it exactly? The owner claims it’s a real military grade battle droid of some kind from the clone wars. Is it true?”

Mar-Shayal had no idea what the clone wars were nor had he seen that type of droid before. When he told the boy this said boy replied “Ppttt. Some jawa you are. I thought you were suppose to be good at this sort of stuff.”

Mar didn’t know what the boy meant. He was good at fixing things. That didn’t mean he knew how to identify every bit of tec he ran into. Even he knew the universe was a big place. The other boy looked thoughtful for a moment then said “Hey. You can speak droid right? I mean, understand them at least?”

Mar-Shayal nodded.

The boy continued “Now they’re getting ready for the next match. Why don’t you go ask it what it is?”

Mar-Shayal felt a rush of terror. “Walk up to a pit droid?! Are you crazy? I don’t want to end up like the mouse one!”

The boy told him “Relax. They’ve got restraining bolts on. They’re only allowed to be aggressive in the pits. It probably won’t even be able to be insulted.”

Mar-Shayal said “I’d still rather not.”

The boy said “If you don’t I’ll make a ruckus and blame it on you.”

Mar-Shayal went cold again. That would be an easy thing to do. He was a jawa. A species widely believed to have trouble inherent to their nature. At the risk of being pummeled by all these much bigger than him strangers Mar-Shayal reluctantly agreed to go talk to the droid.

 

Swimming through the crowd about as gracefully as a fish with a swim bladder disease he made his way to where the combatants waited to be thrown into the ring. The droids didn’t even seem to pay Mar any mind and he was thankful for that. Wringing his hands and glancing around before doing so he tapped the spiderlike droid and said “Uh….excuse me. My friend was just curious what…..uh….hello?” the droid still paid him no mind. Mar-Shayal was just wondering what he would do if the restraining bolts were causing this behaviour when someone (not seeing him there) bumped him. The jawa gave a shriek of surprise as he was knocked into the spider droid which in turn was knocked into one of the other droids and that one was knocked into another. The crowd turned to look. At first Mar thought they were looking at him until he heard a scream and saw the spiderlike droid attacking the shoulder of someone who tried to grab it.

The restraining bolt was off.

The droid was loose.

It pulled the bolts off several of the other droids and the chaos worsened. Mar-Shayal scrambled into a corner where he curled up hoping desperately that he wouldn’t be trampled or targeted by one of the droids.

 

He didn’t even know how long he was there before he was lifted into the air by a very angry looking man. “YOU DESERT RAT! DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU JUST MADE ME LOOSE?! THAT WAS A BUZZ DROID! DO YOU KNOW WHAT MY CHANCES OF GETTING ANOTHER CLONE WARS ERA DROID ARE? ESPECIALLY ONE IN SUCH GOOD CONDITION?” he threw Mar-Shayal to the ground and threw a restraining bolt to the ground in front of him before continuing “GET THAT DROID BACK OR I’LL HAVE YOUR HEAD! …...NOW!!!

Mar-Shayal scrambled to his feet fumbed to grab the bolt then rushed out of the bar. A bottle was thrown out the door after him as he scampered away.

 

Mar’s companion was nowhere in sight. His heart raced and his mouth was as dry as the world his kind came from. Mar-Shayal had heard that his kind often went up against stray droids but…..HE didn’t know how to do that. Not with a military grade droid anyway. How would he find it? What could he do if he did find it? Several minutes passed with him just wandering around worrying so much he wasn’t even thinking anymore by the end of it. His mind was blank. He was exhausted. He was terrified. He was…… Something skittered nearby. No. It couldn’t be. Could he really have had the bad luck to run into that droid again? Out of all the places it could have gone?

Yes.

There was the buzz droid. Its three eyes were focused on him. It circled him like it had the mouse droid in the ring.

Mar-Shayal whined “P-Please. I don’t want any trouble.”

The droid gave a chuckle. A odd chirpy but yet somehow also diabolical chuckle. “You are afraid of me.” it noted in its language.

Mar-Shayal took a step back not meaning to non-verbally answer. He clenched the restraining bolt in both hands just feeling a need to grip something.

Drop it.” The droid ordered.

Mar didn’t even register the command he was so scared.

DROP IT!” snapped the droid again spinning the drill on its face in agitation.

Mar-Shayal threw the bolt to the side in the process of having a startle before curling up and cowering like he had in the bar. The droid walked over to the bolt, drilled a hole right through it, before throwing it further away like it disgusted the droid. Then he approached Mar-Shayal again.

Mar-Shayal said “I-I don’t want trouble. Just leave me alone! Please!”

The droid said “What’s wrong? Afraid I’m gonna…...HURT YOU!” he jerked forward dramatically with spinning drill and Mar-Shayal in turn jerked backward and covered his eyes. The droid’s drill slowed to a stop and the jawa slowly peaked around his fingers as the droid continued “Look. I don’t like jawas as much as the next droid but I’m not stupid. If I went on a random k.illing spree where do you think that would land me? I want to live just as much as you do but a stray droid can only last so long before someone picks them up and they rarely have a choice in who that person is. So…..I have a proposition. You, keep my old master away from me and maybe there are a few things I can help you out with. Deal?

Mar-Shayal said “I-I can’t. Your master said that if I don’t take you to him he’ll k.ill me.”

The droid stated “If you DO try to take me back. I’ll be the one to do that. Seriously. I’ve encountered jawas before. They’re usually jumpy but you’re pathetic. I’d like to see you TRY to take me anywhere I don’t want to go.” As the droid started to back away it said “I’ll give you time to think about it. Kid.” then it scittered away.

 

-End of flashback

 

Mar-Shayal had returned alone but had not been penalized for being out without permission or anything like that so at least maybe the boy he was with had enough entegrity to have somehow got permission. That or Mar had been too unimportant to raise a stur. Whatever the reason it only made Mar not feel worse then he already did. Even as he had done a few tasks in an attempt to take his mind off of things he had failed to do so. He had no idea what he would be doing about that droid.

Hypergoof.

Seen here with a snow nadder and a statue Termite gave her because she couldn't sell it.

(Wiggles bit it's left arm off.)

Below is my profile pic made bigger to show the amazing detail

It's Hypergoof going berserk with a durian mace.

(Drawn by my amazing sister)

(She even drew the fur on the shoes)

            (My in game character)- A friendly young Viking who interacts better with dragons than with people. This is partly because although she now lives on Berk her family was originally from the Berserker tribe. When Dagger came to power Hypergoof, her sister and her parents were forced to flee as they were terrified of their new chief after he threatened to kill Hypergoof's parents for speaking out. The family found a new home on Berk. After working hard to get the Hooligans (what Hiccup's tribe was called in the books) to trust her (mostly) Hypergoof got a job working at a dragon rehabilitation center which is part of the reason she knows so many dragons. Hypergoof has a few problems. One, she is terrified of hot things. (A problem I myself have) She will not touch any stoker class dragons as a result. (With the exception of two individuals) She will still try to help a injured stoker as long as she doesn't have to touch it. Her other problem is also based on one of mine. I am Hypersensitive to sound and certain noises hurt me. Hypergoof has this too but in her the pain can cause her to go Berserk. One of the worst noises is whistling. She will attack anyone who does it near her. (Note this does not mean that I will fire troll those who's character whistles in game. It is a character trait for role playing and storytelling only.) Hypergoof also can't stand large crowds for too long. She will often retreat if things get too noisy. Hypergoof is a good fisher and farmer but a horrible fighter. (Unless she goes Berserk in which case she may get hurt but will do significant damage to her opponent.) She is generally friendly unless she gets stressed out in which case she becomes snappy. Most of her friends are dragons. Because of this Hypergoof has picked up dragoneese and speaks it quite fluently.

 

 

 

 

Littlebird (Hypergoof's sister) and Hypergoof's parents don't have much back story at the moment. None are in game.

 

 

Termite- Is one of Hypergoof's few human friends. (She is in game now as HypersFriendTermite. The chances of seeing her are low though. If seen she will probably be with Wiggles.) She is a woodworker hence the name. She didn't trust Hypergoof when they first met but soon found that they had a lot in common. She is the true trainer of Wiggles but often leaves him with Hypergoof when she must work on something.  Hypergoof and Termite like to take dragon food out into the wilderness ware they wait to see what shows up. A pass time they lovingly call dragonwaching.

 

 

 

 

Wiggles 

(wants to chew on Mildew's new chair just off camera)

(FUN FACT: Mildew is one of the only people Wiggles doesn't like)

            A young rambunctious whispering death with a sweet heart but a naughty mind. Hypergoof's friend Termite adopted him as a baby when his whole family was killed by dragon slayers. Unlike most of his species Wiggles could be described as... cuddly. He wants to be friends with everyone he meets and seems completely oblivious to his size and appearance. He simply does not understand that he is scary and is baffled that some people won't play with him or give him a hug. His best friend growing up was Termite's mutt of a dog Drool, and Wiggles learned the odd habit of waging his tail from his canine friend. Most dignified dragons (especially whispering deaths) are appalled by the behavior but no amount of laughing at Wiggles or begging him to stop for the sake of dignity will change anything. Wiggles simply doesn't care. All that matters to him is how much fun he's having. He will even allow himself to be dressed up for snoggletog and will parade around in the Jingle bells and antlers with pride. (As seen here.) Wiggles is an all around charming and sweet creacher but he is not without flaws. He can not be left alone for more than five minutes or else he will chew on something, especially furniture. Usually damaging it beyond repair. He can not be taken to a marketplace because the concept that Termite "hasn't bought that yet and so he shouldn't eat it" is something he can not seem to grasp. Nore is the one that "That doesn't belong to us!" Termite has taken to carrying a bag of dried mutton strips (Mutton is Wiggles's favorite) to redirect the serpent's attention if she catches him with the look in his eyes that she learned to recognize as his "I'm going to chew on that" face. Despite her best efforts Wiggles is a hand full and Termite often leaves him with Hypergoof if she has to go do some woodworking. Wiggles thinks of Termite as his mother but he thinks of Hypergoof as a friend and enjoys playing with her. Hypergoof shows no fear towards him at all and will even let Wiggles hug her if he asks permission first. (Hypergoof does not like being touched without warning but will happily accept a hug from a friend.) Interestingly Hypergoof found that Wiggles is a very good racer despite his poor eyesight.

 

 

 

Cuteseepie

(Relaxing at home)

          The first dragon Hypergoof ever rescued and one of her closest friends. He is a Pink and Blue deadly nadder. When he was a hatchling his curiosity got the better of him. He wandered away from his nest in the dead of winter and found himself lost in a blizzard which would have been the end of him if he hadn't stumbled onto the front lawn of Hypergoof's house. His crys alerted the family who quickly took him in out of the cold and thus saved his life. Cuteseepie and Hypergoof have been friends ever since. Cuteseepie has a mellow gentle nature broken up occasionally for excitement at an adventure. He will defend Hypergoof or if need be prevent her from attacking someone who whistled. His level headedness balances out against Hypergoof's goofyness rather nicely. 

 

 

 

Ziggy

(Showing off again)

          A skrill that Hypergoof found injured while dragon watching. Her success in helping him helped her get the job she currently has and also built up a friendship between Hypergoof and Ziggy. It probably helped that Ziggy is not a very old skrill, only having just left his parents, before somehow getting hurt. Much like a cat Ziggy tries to be more dignified than he really is. One moment showing off his impressive wingspan with a majestic yawn and the next he's off chaiseing a light or a leaf when he thinks no one is looking. He often roles his eyes when Hypergoof playfully teases him by saying his name in a funny pitch or calling him "The Zigster" but a poorly hidden grin betrays the fact that he doesn't mind as much as he lets on. Ziggy is decently friendly to most people who don't insult his dignity (only his close friends are allowed to do that) but he is still technically a wild skrill. He spends most of his time off chaising storms and doing whatever else wild skrills do only he stops by every once in a while to visit Hypergoof. Manny people wonder why he keeps coming back as he always seems more annoyed with Hypergoof than anything but it is just a mask. A false front. He secretly really enjoys her company. In fact perhaps Hypergoof's absurdity amuses him. FUN FACT: Before meeting Ziggy it was Hypergoof's life dream to see a live skrill. (Partly her Berserker heritage) For her meeting Ziggy was akin to meeting a celebrity. Of course things got more normal between them as they got to know each other but Hypergoof is still pretty darn proud that a skrill let her be his friend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Causemoe

(Knows the owner of this house hates it when he sits there)

           A young flightmare who was one of Ziggy's friends then also became Hypergoof's friend when Ziggy brought him to Berk. Unlike Ziggy though, Causemoe decided that he liked Berk and the school so much that he would stay. He is a complete showoff and loves to be the center of attention. He can get huffy if he finds someone who does one of his favorite things better than him. He especially hates it that Wanda can glow brighter than him. She often tones down her glow when she's near him to spare his feelings.

 

 

 

 

 

Wanda

(Knows the best places for the best view)

         As mentioned before, Hypergoof is scared of stoker class dragons. When approached by a fireworm her normal reaction is to flip out as if the little dragon was a bee. Wanda however is an exception to this rule and not only is she a fireworm but she is a fireworm queen. Hypergoof once got herself lost in a snowstorm and was found by one of Wanda's workers unconscious and soon to freeze if something wasn't done. Wanda is a very empathetic dragon. Even though she didn't trust humans she didn't want to see a helpless creacher d.ie in such a way. She took Hypergoof into her nest to warm up. Hypergoof was stuck there for several days not knowing which way was home until Cuteseepie tracked her down by scent and took her back to the village. During Hypergoof's time in the nest Wanda decided she liked this little human. Hypergoof was terrified of most of Wanda's children and since Wanda didn't understand Norse yet Hypergoof communicated her unease by sticking as close to the fireworm queen as she would allow. Purposely mimicking the bodylanguig of a scared puppy to get her point across. Wanda was sympathetic of Hypergoof's fear and allowed the little human to stay near. Keeping the meaner members of her family at bay until Cuteseepie could find the lost viking. Wanda was a bit suprized to find that a dragon was the one looking for the girl. She has a healthy dose of curiosity in her and often visits Berk for "research purposes" as she calls it. Wanda is curious about humans and wants to learn about them. Hypergoof is grateful to Wanda for her kindness and will come when she calls. Something Wanda finds amusing but also gives her an easy target to study. Personalitywise Wanda is the type of person one might have a fancy tea party with. She is every bit a queen but is also an intellectual with a kind heart. She hangs around Berk to study the uneeq human and dragon interactions there. Seeking how to possibly spread that type of friendship for the good of dragon kind.

 

 

 

 

 

Burpetta

(Wonders if she'd get in trouble for blasting me into the water behind the camera)

          A pink thunderdrum who someone in the dragon rehab center found as a baby then dumped on Hypergoof since no one wanted to deal with the hatchling. Their relationship started out terribly due to Hypergoof's sound sensitivity. In the beginning Hypergoof could barely stand Burpetta but eventually the dragon realized that her loudness has hurting the human and learned to be more gentle with Hypergoof's delicate ears. Sometimes Burpetta can be careless but she never means any harm and will correct her behavior when she eventually realizes she did wrong. She is kind by nature but loves a bit of mischief now and then. She also has a bit of the stubbornness common in her breed. Once she sets her mind to something it is difficult to convince her otherwise.

 

 

 

 

Chomp

(Sleeping like the baby he is)

            A screaming death. He is the baby of the group despite being the biggest member of it. When Alven found out that one of the eggs he'd planted under Berk had hatched a screaming death he decided he wanted such a beast for himself. He knew he couldn't capture the adult so he decided to get his hands on a hatchling. He captured a bunch of the successful breeding pair's family members in the hopes that more of them would carry the incredibly rare screaming death gene. The captive dragons were force bread and after many many attempts Alven got what he wanted. He didn't get to keep it though as a couple Hooligans who had snuck into Alven's hideout looking for helpful info about future plans found the baby screaming death instead. They took it back to Berk to figure out what to do with it. Several people wanted to kill the little guy before he could grow into an island eater but Hypergoof over heard and was horrified. She knew what it felt like to be disliked for what she was rather than who she was. Some people didn't trust her because she was a Berserker. She knew it wasn't fair to judge someone that way. She stole Chomp and (With Wiggles and Termite's permission) hid him down Wiggles's tunnels. Wiggles didn't mind and enjoyed having a roommate to play with. Chomp stayed there unknown until his loudness and the sheer amount of food being brought down there gave him away. By then though he was old enough that he had enough personality to proved him a gentle giant rather than a monster and he was allowed to stay. He is not at all a full grown screaming death and has the personality of a giant toddler. He is surprisingly gentle especially considering his breed. He is so mild tempered that he will stare blankly at fire trolls wondering what they are doing. He will only engage if he thinks it's a game. Despite his gentleness his size and strength can be a problem. He will occasionally knock someone over with his tail by accident then stare at them in confusion not smart enough to understand why the person fell but knowing it was still somehow his fault. When other screaming deaths were allowed into the school Chomp was thrilled to have playmates his size. Chomp is very much still a baby mindwise. He is very food oreeinted and can be prompted to do nearly anything for a snack. It's a very good thing he doesn't consider humans food. It's hard to imagine that he could ever be related to the screaming death who once tried to eat Berk but he is. The danjoris one happens to be his somewhat distant uncle. Fun fact: Hypergoof often refers to Chomp's uncle as Mr. Island munch and insists that she will continue to do so until his actual name is found out or created.

 

 

 

 

 

Punaluu

(LOVES sand)

(I really shouldn't be suprized)

            A female sand wraith. Punaluu comes from a subspeasys of sand wraith on a volcanic island with black sand. (Like the beach Punaluu is named after.) As such they adapted to the environment by becoming black. A side affect of this is that now the subspeacys looks even more like a nightfurry than the normal ones. Some money hungry showmen found out about them and decided to make a quick buck. They stoll an egg from this island and paraded the black hatchling around claiming it to be a nightfurry. This charade ended when they made the mistake of bringing their show to Berk. Seeing that the dragon was being treated badly the Hooligans took the baby from the showmen and took it to the dragon rehabilitation center for treatment for whip wounds and malnutrition. Punaluu is much healthier now and is a happy energetic young sand wraith. One problem she has is that her dark coloring is only designed for a certain type of area and she can not camouflage most of the time because of it. Not being able to hide occasionally gives her episodes of anxiety but a quick trip to a beach ushuly fixes it. She is very shy around strangers but around those she knows she is a complete goof. She can also be a bit naughty. Sometimes she feels out of place like she doesn't belong and so interacts well with Hypergoof who doesn't fit in all that well ether.

Mizuki Starstrider

Mizuki looked up as a Jawa wandered in. Perfect timing too. Just the person she was looking for. "OI! Mar-Shayal! I got a job for you!" She called to the Jawa, glad he at least spoke Basic. Most Jawa had their own language that they used back on Tatooine. She went once as a kid before her parents were killed during the Clone Wars. They had fought for freedom on Ryloth after settling on Corellia and leaving her with a friend of the family who dumped her on the streets first chance he got after learning her parents were killed. She'd decided to get the Jawa to help her out. They were pretty good scroungers and she had some new tech for him to work with. She knew he was handy with tech and had a way with droids. They'd just gotten a new probe droid that refused to let anyone work on it. He seemed to have a talent with difficult droids and getting them to cooperate

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

The Mar-Shayal jumped at the sudden voice nearly spilling the remaining food in his bowl. He was usually jumpy but that might have been a bit more then usual. Recodnising the blue face the jawa said "Y-Yes? I am needed?" his voice going from startled to hopeful in the span of the sentince. Maybe he just needed a job to think straight again. His mind needed a break from thinking about that buzz droid.

Kicee rolled her eyes at the Jawa's reaction. Mizuki simply smiled before helping him clean up the mess of his food, glad she had one of the biscuits for the Corellian Hounds that everyone seemed to like as a treat in her pocket. She'd give it to him later. "Sorry, didn't mean to startle you like that. I actually do have a job for you. For some reason whenever we get the cranky droids who won't let anyone fix them up, they let you. So since we got a new shipment of droids in, we got a particularly grumpy probe droid who even zapped me when I tried to repair him. I was wondering if you'd be willing to take a look." Mizuki explained, apologizing for startling the little Jawa. How he ended up in Coronet City? She'll never know. She did her best to keep the little guy out of trouble as best she could down here. She made a promise to herself that if she ever got a ship to get out of this dump like Han Solo did, she'd take this little guy to Tatooine where he belonged.

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Mar-Shayal said "I can always try Miss, Mizuki. Is he where they usually are?" attempting a small smile in his rodenty face now that the startle was completely over. This was his way of saying yes. Mar-Shayal never wanted to make promises he might not be able to keep and he was always unsure of his ability to do anything even when it was something he'd done many times in the past. Therefore he promised to try rather then do. One can not break a promise to try the way they can one to do. This behavior didn't do much to raise his rank but he didn't mind as long as something didn't lower it further.

Kaynew Elian

When she was younger, Kaynew Elian had always imaged Corellia to be a much brighter, cleaner place than it was in reality. The stories she had heard told of a completley industrialized city, the peak of new technology and invention. Waking up to the smog and grime, she wondered for the hundreth time whether or not the stories she had based her vision off of had been describing Coruscant instead, or if the storyteller had just been using too much Rylothian spice to really know what they were talking about. A minute after she awoke, her alarm went off, a sharp beeping noise that broke the silence of the small room relentlessly like a laser hitting glass. She hurried to shut it off, annoyed. She certainly didn't need it; she'd been waking up this early every day for the past nine years and had grown quite accustomed too it. 

Kaynew rolled straight off of her durasteel bunk, falling a foot to the floor and hitting it with a soft thud. All around her, minors and adults alike of all different species stirred, savoring their last few precious hours of sleep before waking up to another day of working for the White Worms. She sat up, touching the top of her Monotrals gingerly. They kept growing, as could be expected of a Togruta, but sadly the bunk was not growing with her and space was becoming more and more cramped. Unlocking her boots from their spot hanging on the side of her bunk (sharing a room with a bunch of pickpockets meant one could never be too careful), she slipped those on along with a her black leather jacket she had been using as a pillow and headed out the door. 

Although technically they all worked for Lady Proxima, the lives of the pickpockets, smugglers, technicians, and what not couldn't be more different. For her, work began late at night, when shadows would provide the cover that she needed, but for others, it began early in the morning, when there were people out to swindle and steal from. Having left the small and cold room that she and ten others called home, she came out into a hallway lined with similar rooms, all leading to one small doorway that granted passage to the outside. Kaynew approached it, entered the security code she had been granted that would allow her to leave, pushing the stubborn buttons hard to make sure that the code went through. Nothing in the building, it seemed, had been updated since the days of the Old Republic, making life just that much worse. 

After about ten minutes of winding her way through alleyways and riding up shakey lifts, she came into an even smaller and dirtier room than the one she had left, though she was glad to be out of the streets and the danger that Corellia held at night, which was even greater than the regular danger it held during the day. Already having arrived was a dark haired human male whose name she did not know, but looked to be about the age of tweleve, and a heavily muscular female Weequay named Piitsel. She acknowledged their presence, then strode up to the front window, where a beady eyed Quarren stood waiting. 

"Do I have an assignment today?" Kaynew asked, dreading an answer in any form. She worked as a bounty hunter, specifically, a sniper assasian, for Lady Proxima. She mainly only ever was sent to assasinat.e those who had not paid back their debts, or followed through on a deal, or some other black market crime related matter. Every now and then, she was not given even an identity, just a picture and estimated location. It was these targets that she was most rewarded for, and the ones that kept her up at night wondering just was crime had the committed in the eyes of her employer. 

If the answer to her question was yes, it meant much more decent meals than what she would nomrally recieve, but on the other hand, it meant that she would have to k.ill someone, and live with another death on her consience. It had bothered her at first, but she worked through it, reminding herself that if her target was even half as foul as Lady Proxima they deserved the fate they had coming. 

"Yes." said the Quarren, reaching into a drawer and pulling out an old holopad. He swiped the screen a few times, his flipper like hands having some difficulties, then turned it around and pushed it towards her. "Man by the name of GrinarBeen giving us some counterfiet spice. Lost us a lot of credits." I breifly scanned the information, then asked: 

"Location?"

"Last seen in the spice den district, just outside of Cornet city. You got that, scum rat?" He said, eyeing her with a look of utmost contempt. Kaynew nodded, reading over the information one more time to make sure that she had it right. He bent down behind the window, breifly out of sight. He reappeared with a small dusty black case, which contained the sniper that she used during ever mission. She grabbed it, then walked over to a small corner of the room to check that she had every piece she would need. The Weequay had already left, and the human boy was about to. She'd better get a move on if she wanted to finish the job before the sun rose again. 

The spice den district had not been hard to find; the smell if anything had given it away. Finding Ginar would be the only problem, but surley not one that she couldn't handle. This was a routine mission for her, nothing out of the ordinary. The alleys she walked through descended lower and lower, and as she walked she adjusted her satchel contiaining her sniper and pulled the hood of her cloak farther over her face.

After twenty or so more minutes of walking, she came upon the shadiest and most crowded building, which smelled so strongly of the pungent spice that she fought back the urge to choke. She took a deep breath of the outside air, then walked inside, even more careful to conceal her satchel and her face. Walking straight up to the counter, she saw that it was run by a seedy looking Twieliek who appeared to have gotten less sleep than she had. 

"I'm looking for the location of the spice provider, Grinar."Kaynew said,skipping any sort of formality. It was unesscary, both for her profession and location. 

"Who wants to know?" he asked, looking her up and down, his body having tensed up significantly. 

"Lady Proxima." This was Kaynew's most common routine. Lady Proxima didn't care if anyone knew she had assasians, their saftey did not concern her, and she wanted to make it known what would happen to anyone who tried to double-cross her or cheat her in a deal. The Twieliek gulped, looked behind him nervously, and said:

"What do I get for telling you?" Typical.

"The knowledge that your life is not under the harsh consideration of a poweful nearby crime lord." Kaynew said back to him, straightfaced, trying to sound intimidating. She was far too tired to be making threats this late (or was it early now?) and hoped that the man would comply. Luckily for her, the man nodded, and then leaned across the bar. 

"He was here last night. I swear I don't know where he is now, but when I heard that a new shipment of spice came in just a standard hour ago. Should be at the docking bay, overseeing it." Kaynew nodded, managed a bit of a smile, and then walked out, already feeling sickly lightheaded from the smell. She'd never thought she would be so glad to smell the dirty air of Corellia, but anything was better than where she had just come from. 

The docks were a familar location for her. She'd gone there many a time for assignments, and had by now found a location that worked rather well as the spot to set up her sniper rifle. It took only another half hour of walking before she arrived at the base of a very tall building. Kaynew walked over to a rickety lift on the side of the building, riding it up about halfway before it stopped. Nothing worked entireley right on Corellia. 

Kaynew began to scale the rest of the way up, using some steel wire cords from her utility belt. She had made this climb before, but it did nothing to make her less scared of the heights. The only thing that did console her was the prospect of a meal after this to fill her empty stomach. At last, she reached the top, looking out over at the view.

As she surveyed the docks, she thought about what would happen if she were to strike a deal with this man, or anyone else, and escape the planet. She'd always wanted to see one of the more natural planets, like Naboo or Alderaan. But the dream was only that; a dream. She wore a small tracker on her at all times, charectereistic of being one of Proximia's sniper assasians, one that would detonate if she were to set foot off of the planet without permission. 

Kaynew shook her head, her montrals quivering as she did so, to clear the dream from her head, and the concentrated on finding Grinar. From his picture on the holopad, she had seen he was a middle aged Cerean man with a black beard, making him stand out, at least compared to some of her other past targets. She found him, farther away than she would excpect but still within her range, standing on a dock overseeing a shipment coming in, just like the man had said.

Quickly, she assembled her sniper, then used the scope to zoom in and observe the scene. He was overlooking was appeared to be five or so Gran slaves unloading boxes of spice in an assembly line. She could see him barking orders, and she felt the familar burn of hatred that came along with seeing slavery in action. Kaynew herself had been a slave on the planet Zygerria, with her family and many other Tortugans, until she had managed an escape, only to land another form of slavery in the service of Lady Proxima. 

She began to shake all over as she adjusted everything, preparing for the shot. This part was familar, the only part where she felt true emotion and sympathy, though it was stiffened by his apparent use of slaves. A tear slid down her light orange cheek for the death of this man, a man who'd probably had no more control over his own life than she did of her own. Still, if she did not sho.ot him someone else would, and she needed the food, so with a deep sigh she re-adjusted the barrel of sniper, lined up the shot, and pulled the trigger. Grinar staggered over, fell, the shot having hit its mark perfectly. 

The slaves began to panic, dropping their work and rushing to go find someone to notify. Kaynew did not have time to watch.Quickly, before his death could attract too much more attention, Kaynew unassembled her sniper, packed it up, and was gone before the sun could even rise.

Hi, I'm JediwhorideDragons, AKA EllietheSavage in game and the girl that writes too many overly-long posts on the forums. While I don't play the game that often anymore, maybe only once or twice a week, I am almost always on the forums. I like running (I run Cross Country and Track/Field), reading, hiking, dog and counting down the miliseconds until the third movie comes out. I definatley consider myself to be more of a writer than a drawer, though I rarley ever publish any of the things I write. I'm probably in too many fandoms, Star Wars, Stranger Things, Harry Potter, Miraculous Ladybug, etc. And yes, I am also the one who writes a lot of the overly detailed and long villan conspiracy theories.

"The Betrothal Gift"- A Hiccstrid One Shot

Link: http://forum.schoolofdragons.com/content/betrothal-gift-hiccstrid-one-shot 

Summary: Getting married has always been one of the many things a chief of Berk is expected to do. But what about future chiefs of Berk? Stoick comes to the edge to give Hiccup a very special coin in hopes of him one day getting betrothed only to find that his son already has a special someone in mind... Between Season Four and Season Five.

Warning: This story has a TON of spelling mistakes- I guess that's what happens when you type something in the dark late at night

Kaynew Elian

By the time she had gotten back to the White Worm group of buildings,the sun was beginning to rise. It had taken her longer than usual to come home, as she’d had to backtrack several times to through anyone looking for then assasian off the scent. And by the time she had returned her sniper rifle,making sure that it was properly cleaned and adjusted it fixed as needed, it was near mid-morning. She was ravenously hungry;she hadn’t eaten in almost nine hours and looked forward to breakfast. Quickly confirming with the Quarren at the window that her target was indeed de.ad, (he would then do the same with Lady Proxima) she rushed out to devour whatever’s bantha poodoo they were trying to pass off as food today. 

Missions were never completed during the day, so she was given other tasks at this time,mostly helping to load goods or run an inventory, nothing too complicated. Occasionally, Kaynew would revive orders directly from Lady Proxima to go out and partake in one of the street races. The Togruta was an excellent street racer, winning credits both for Bets and as prizes, though of course she kept none of it. Lately however she hadn’t had the chance to street race, the Old Republic Era speeder she used had broken down one too many times, and Lady Proxima would not give her the money to fix it. As she knew no technicians (as an assasian many steered clear of her during meal times and work) And knew next to nothing about the innerworkings of machines, she didn’t know how she would ever get the speeder up and running again.

She received her breakfast, looking around for somewhere to sit and eat. Kaynew had no clue what the pasty food was on her plate. Togrutas were usually carnivores, but she had had to adapt to eating almost anything, including what was before her now. Walking around a bit, she saw a Jawa and a Twileik talking together and decided to sit over in that area. Truth be told, she was amused by this duo. The twileik she recognized as the head smuggler in charge, but she didn’t know her name. The Jawa she knew even less about, only that species certainly didn’t belong on Corelia. 

As she dug into her meal, she heard the two discussing droid repair. She listened, for more of a lack of anything else to do than anything. Briefly, she considered intterupting and asking the Jawa for help reparing her speeder. He could help her a reat deal, but most no one wanted anything to do with an sniper of any kind, so she abandoned the thought and turned back to her meal.

Regen Holtcrow

Regen lighted his tabacco, and used the back of one of the goan has his seat, contemplate his victory in silent in this narrow alleyway between buildings. The objective of today's smuggling is now saved in his hand. He opened the content to check it out, he couldn't identify it but it's definitely look valueble and fit what he was assigned, some sort of jewelry? "Of all the trouble I have to get you" Regen mused. Look at the unconsious bodies of the slightly older boys on the ground. They weren't the owner of this thing, no, they're actaully the fellow scumrats. Regen's prefer method of smuggling stuff mostly consisting of sweet-talk and coning clueless adult who somehow buying his I'm-not-some-scumrats-kid-and-is-actually-somewhat-functional-adult facade rather than physical violence which he only saved for an occassion like this; when he walked into these two who prey after the weaker looking kid for an easy loots and getting their credits for the day.

He heard the sound of Mizuki's bat in the distance and signed. He's going to enjoy this peaceful moment as long as he can even if it pis,sed her off. Regen's never be the one to deliegently following orders anyway, a little rebel he's always been. Waving her off and refuse to work in group or anyone method but still hand his work in at the end of the day most of the time(or receiving another bruise when he doesn't) It's not that he personally hate her but it's also hard to like her when she possed as one form of authority, even the small one, in this day and age, any form of authority su,cks.

The bruise on his cheek, eye and nose began to smart though. They did manage to get to a few good hit in. Maybe he need to go to fix himself up soon, with another sign of resignation with the puff of smoke from his mouth, a cold spare glance at the stirring bodies and a playful juggling of the probably breakable jewel in his hand, Regen got up and walk back to the white worm hideout through what he thing will be less troublesome route.

Mizuki Starstrider

Mizuki smiled, Kicee screeching a bit on her shoulder when she saw someone in the underground mess hall. "Yeah, they're in the back of the storage area. Recruit whatever help you need fixing them. I've already told Lady Proxima that I'd give you free reign over the droids. At least in terms of repair." She told the little jawa, handing him one of the dog biscuits she swiped as treats for Kicee. "This is for you by the way, to make up for spilling your breakfast. It'll taste better anyways. Make sure not to let anyone else see you with it." She advised, giving the little guy a pat on the head. She gave another one to Kicee in order to keep her from complaining about it later. The Iridescent Lizardbat was probably the only real splash of color anyone saw down here besides Proxima's jewels when she called meetings in her lair. She stood up, stretching a kink in her back. "Let me know if you need any parts that aren't in the supply room, got it?" She told the little guy. Mar-Shayal was a cute little guy, even if he did hide under a hood and mask. Even Kicee seemed to like him

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Mar-Shayal caught someone looking at them out of the corner of his eye and tried not to stare back but couldn't avoid a glance at what looked like a heavily armed someone. Weapons were scary. Mar-Shayal was glad when said scary armed person turned back to their food. He only barely caught Mizuki confirming where the droid was. Good thing it wasn't anywhere weird. He accepted the treats gratefully. It wasn't often he got gifts so the simple little treat meant a lot to him. "Thank you. I will try my very best not to let anyone see it. And I will try my very best to help that droid. My very best, I promise." he said tucking the treat under his cloak and into the similarly hidden toolbelt around his tiny waist. He was very much cheered up after his rough night. He could not have gotten a task from a better advisor. As he ran off there was almost a bounce in his step.

Nikita Haerlo ~

Nikita collected herself quickly. Nikita turned her back on the twi’lek and slowly made her way back into the town. Proxima would NOT be happy if Nikita had not only failed her mission, but upset her twice. 

 

Nikita searched around for someone to steal from. Then she had a thought.

 

Did she really have to steal from a person? Why not from a place? 

 

Nikita made her way through the crowds and found a small shop that didn’t have many customers. She slowly opened the door and it made a little creek. There was no one at the counter. Then there was a loud bang and a few shot-sort of noises. Someone rolled over the cashier desk, their eyes lifeless, and their skin pale blue. Nikita heard a bark from someone and ducked behind the counter, holding her breath. Slowly, she peered out the side of the counter. She could only see the boots of the same person that had yelled. 

 

After a a few moments, they backed away into the exit stealthily. 

 

Nikita let out a breath, standing up. 

 

She was too fast. Three men popped up from their hiding places and grsbbed her. As she was about to scream, one of the men placed a gloved hand over her mouth to keep her from making any noise.

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

As he made his way Mar-Shayal knew there were two most likely first impressions. The droid might see him as anybody other then a possible comment on his tinyness or it might recodnise him as a jawa and its reaction would depend entirely on how it had been treated by his kind in the past or how his kind had treated some friend it knew. It was not very often that droids who had visited Tatooine ended up here but Jawas were so good at all sorts of technology redistribution that there were quite a few droids in the galixy who had encountered them.....well....quite a few for anything that mostly came from one planet that is. As such Mar-Shayal HAD met a few droids who's first impression of him was based on his species. That buzz droid last night being a not very friendly example from the sound of it. Again, this wasn't a common occurance. It had happened a few times only. But those few times always stuck in Mar-Shayal's brain because it proved that having his species known by a droid could eather be very good or very bad. As he entered the storage area Mar hoped for the best and braced for the worst. 

 

Probe droids were strange looking things often with more then the usual amount of eyes and way too many legs....or were they arms? Mar was never sure since they hung downwards but were never used for walking since these droids floated. It was sort of like a michanical jellyfish actually. "Hello." Mar-Shayal said politely. The droid made a noise equivilent to "B.ug off!"

Mar-Shayal could clearly see the problum now. Several of the droid's legs were jerking abnormally due to likely internal damage. The droid didn't seem to be able to move them willingly. Mar-Shayal said "They told me you're hurt and won't let anyone touch you."

The droid did not answer. It just eyed the jawa carefully.

Mar-Shayal continued "Are you scared it will hurt? Do you have pain sensors?"

The droid continued to watch him.

Mar-Shayal said "We can go slowly if you want. You can't stay broken forever. Well....I mean....you can....but I don't think that well end well for you. Lady Proxima probubly isn't going to keep a broken droid. She doesn't even like to keep broken other types of people. I've seen some without an arm or leg but they have to work like everyone else. Can I please-"

A noise from behind him startled Mar and caused him to spin around. What he saw standing there scared him so much he couldn't even scream. Releasing the squeak that was all his closed throat would let out he ran to hide behind the probe droid despite the fact that said droid was floating and had also been stated to be grumpy. The droid raised one of his few working claws to slap the jawa but stopped before he made contact as he realized that the small creature was scared.

Scared....of a droid.

The buzz droid from last night said "What? Not even a hello? Come on kid."

The probe droid asked "What did you do to him?"

"NOTHING!" Replied the buzz droid continueing "He's just scared cuz I came from a droid pit fighting ring. Thinks that means I'm gonna k.ill him or something."

Mar-Shayal said "How did- The doors have locks! Where-"

The buzz droid said "I'm a sabotage droid, kid! You think I don't know how to sneak into a place? But if you really want to know....I climbed on the ceiling for a lot of it. Not easy here actually. ......Stop looking so mortified! I just want to know where you stand on our deal."

Mar-Shayal stuttered "I....I don't know."

The buzz droid said "You don't know?"

Mar-Shayal stared back as his answer so the buzz droid continued "I gave you the whole rest of the night to think about it!"

The probe droid...despite being a stanger to the whole situation said "Woe woe woe. Hang on a minute. Just what is going on?"

The buzz droid explained that he'd escaped from his master and that the jawa was his ticket to avoid him because said jawa was now in between a rock and a h.ard place.

The probe droid pointed out "THIS IS A CHILD!"

The buzz droid said "Jawas are always small. I know he's even smaller then most but-"

The probe droid stated "No. Seriously. Most of the workforce here seems to be grubby fingered children. I even saw a FIVE year old carrying things around earlyer. Do you know what five year olds of most biological species can do? Barely anything."

".....Huh." The buzz droid stated like this was an odd concept but not guilty for his behaviour at all.

The probe droid said "You don't even know what this means do you."

The buzz droid said "Hey. It's not like anyone uses buzz droid's for babysitting. And I heard you zapped one or two so I don't know what you're getting mad at me for."

The probe droid replied "I just didn't want some clumbsy kid messing with my works! Kids are dirty!"

"You don't look that clean yourself." Stated the buzz droid.

Mar-Shayal wasn't sure how to react to any of this. He was the center of an argument between two droids and he didn't like it. The jawa started creeping backward in an attempt to get away. Imeedeitly the buzz droid snapped "Where do you think you're going? I still want an answer." The Jawa looked ready to bolt and suddenly the buzz droid wasn't so smug. He didn't actually want the kid to alert every member of the white worms to his presence. "Wait! Wait please! I can be useful! I can! Look!" then he jumped the other droid seeking to try to wrestle it to the ground despite the fact that it was bigger then him.

Mar-Shayal said "STOP! STOP! WE'RE SUPPOSE TO FIX HIM! NOT K.ILL HIM!" When the probe droid succeeded in throwing the other off after the buzz droid was startled at being told to stop Mar-Shayal ran in between the two droids with arms out stretched twords both of them. If the droid he was trying to FIX got damaged further it would be on him and any mistake around here could be dangerus. Espessully when he had promised better then he usually did. Both stopped because neather really had anything against the jawa at the momment and were not willing to run him over to get at each other. 

After a second or two the buzz droid said "Well well well. Maybe you're NOT so pathetic after all."

Then they heard footsteps of someone who themselves had heard the ruckus. The buzz droid glanced around and didn't see anywhere he could run to in time so he jumped on the jawa. Mar-Shayal staggered under the sudden weight of a droid falling on him. He had only just begun to struggle when the buzz droid pinched him and whispered "Eather of you tell them I'm an intruder and the jawa goes down with me."

Mar-Shayal dared not make any more attempts to remove the droid. He knew what some of those tools could do.

The probe droid was concerned but not going to risk anything eather.

The curious person came in and asked what was going on.

Mar-Shayal was too afraid to start so the probe droid did "I didn't want them touching me."

The person didn't seem to understand so Mar-Shayal pushed to speach via looks from both droids said "O-oh you know how it can be. A droid doesn't want to be fixed and there's a fight and one has to bring their new buzz droid in to try to settle it-"

The curious person said "Buzz droid?! Dude. Put that thing away. You're suppose to fix the probe droid not wreck it worse."

Mar-Shayal said "I-It was m-meant to be a scare tactic."

The curious person said "Still. You'd be s.crewed if it decided to call your bluff. Also, that's an ex-separatist droid....not a back pack. Don't just let it climb on you like that. You look rediculous." then they were gone. 

Everyone left in the room gave their version of a sigh in releaf.

The buzz droid told Mar-Shayal "I didn't want to do this but now I think I need to force your disission. You are my only option and I CAN'T back down now. As far as anyone's concerned I'm your droid. Got it?"

Mar-Shayal replied with a reluctant out of fear "Ok." as the droid was still clinging to him and those tools of his were still far too close for comfort after the droid made a threat on Mar's life.

The probe droid took pity on Mar-Shayal. He gave permission for the jawa to fix him just to avoid making the poor creature's day worse.

On the bright side. Mar still had his treat which he paused to take a few small bites of once the buzz droid had dismounted him. He would eat the rest of it after fixing the probe droid. It was rather impolite to eat something WHILE fixing somebody. You know, with the crumbs and all.

Kaynew Elian

Before she could make up her mind, the Jawa was already standing up, finishing his conversation with the Twiliek. Though she tried to look as though her mind was elsewhere and that she was not in fact eavesdropping, her eyes couldn't help but notice that he was quickly tucking something into his robes, though what it was she couldn't tell. He walked toward the door leading to the stairs, and Kaynew could have sworn he was skipping. The Twiliek, meanwhile, watched the Jawa leave and then headed out herself, presumabley to some smuggler related manner. Her plate now completley empty, the Togruta stood up, glancing at the small and dustry chromometer on the wall to see how much more time she had left before she would have to report back. 

She had around half a standard hour still left, and with nothing else to do with her time, she decided to seek out the little Jawa and ask him to help her repair her street speeder. From what she had heard of their conversation, it was most likely that he woud be in one of the outermost mechanic rooms where she believed most problematic droids were housed. Stifiling a yawn, she too headed out of the door, pulling her jacket tighter against the wind once she had made it to the outside surface level. 

As a sniper, she had never been too familar with the layout of any other buildings that did not concern her line of work, so it took her longer than she had anticipated to find the building where the little Jawa sat, tinkering away on the droids inside. Luckily, she had seen no one on her way here, so there would be no one to question what a sniper was doing in this area. Any step out of line working for Lady Proxima inevitabley lead to punishment, or even death. Hesitating at the door, she took a deep breath and tried to make herself look as least threatening as was possible. She knocked, and heard a small clank of metal that could only be the result of the noise scaring the Jawa. Then, a scuffling noise was made, and the door slid open, leaving her looking down to a significantly shorter creature, holding what looked like part of a half eaten biscuit of some sort. She'd always wondered what Jawas looked like under their hoods; as far as she was concerned it was one of the galaxy's greatest mysteries. 

"Um, excuse me." she said, clearing her throat and shifting on her feet. "I'm one of the scumrat streetracers, and my speeder was damaged during my last race. I've been trying to figure out how to fix it for almost a month now, but I have no clue how and I was wondering if you could help me." Kaynew couldn't see the Jawa's facial expressions, so it was difficult for her to know what to say next. Her montrals were almost four inches from her chest, that's how much she was having to lean forward. She straightened, and then, already much too familar with the ways of most scumrats, she added: "And if you're wondering what's in it for you, the answer is the garunteed protection of an experienced sniper." She knew this offer would be too good for him to pass up, even from the short time she had observed him she could tell the Jawa was timid and jumpy, the kind that could definatley use a protecter. 

She craned her neck, looking behind the Jawa to see inside the room. Kaynew was shocked by what she saw there, her icy blue eyes widining in suprise. Hovering just behind the little mechanic was an obviously defective probe droid whose legs seemed to be twitching uncontrollably. But even stranger was that in the corner of the room was a Buzz droid, an old sepratist military droid from the days of the Clone Wars and the Old Republic. The droid looked menacing, even for a sniper assasian, and was brandishing its many weapons at her as if daring her to continue. Completley thrown off by all of this, Kaynew stood waiting for an answer, her mind spinning in a thousand different direction as she wondered how the scene before her had come to play.

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

After jumping at the noise of the knock Mar quickly shoved his treat back in its hiding place though he had the sneaking suspicion the one who just came in had already seen it. Now he just had to hope she wasn't going to tell. When he recognized this as the scary gun person who had been eyeing him earlier his fear rose but it turned out....she just wanted....HIS help?!?

"Me? Y-You want ME to help?" he said. He was use to others asking for his aid but not someone like this. Surely he was road dirt compared to her rank. The fact that she wanted his help surprised him so much that it almost replaced his fear. The buzz droid crept over to stand near the jawa. He didn't want this person's offer to turn into possible violence against him. For just a moment the drill under the buzz droid's face spun. Mar-Shayal's fear came back in a moment. But now it wasn't at the sniper. He put a shaky hand on one side of the droid's open shell and said "P-Please don't. Whatever you're thinking just....Please?"

The droid actually decided to listen. The spinning drill stopped and the buzz droid tried to take on a less aggressive stance. If the sniper was on their side they could use that to keep his old master away. It might not be that bad. But now he needed to prove to the jawa that he could be trusted. If he continued to hold him under threat alone that gun could be pointed at him. It was time to patch things up. Besides. He had to sell that he was the jawa's droid. Mar-Shayal sighed in relief then told the sniper "Sorry....about that. He um....doesn't like strangers."

Mizuki Starstrider

Mizuki was in the workshop near where the droids were and poked her head in to see that street racer Nikita - also a gang sniper - talking to Mar-Shayal. She frowned, approaching them as Kicee hissed angrily. She disapproved of Snipers. Shooting from the shadows just seemed like a coward's way of fighting. Mizuki preferred straight up hand to hand combat or at least seeing the eyes or sensory organs of those she had to kill when she had to fight at all. She didn't like killing per say, but she would if she had to. "Is there a problem here Mar-Shayal?" She asked, noticing the probe droid and the buzz droid with him. She wondered where the buzz droid came from. She'd never seen it before. She'd ask the little Jawa about it later. She noticed that Kicee was protective of the little guy. They were both small so she figured that Kicee considered him family or whatever it was the lizard-bats considered family.

Kaynew Elian

Kaynew's puzzlement grew even more as the Jawa and the buzz droid began to exchange in some half spoken conversation, resulting in the buzz droid seemingly backing down from the offensive stance it had begun to take. She had never undestood the bonds people could form with droids, to them they were just that, machines. But then again, she'd never really done a good job bonding with sentient species either. 

"Sorry...about that. He um... doesn't like strangers." said the Jawa sheepishly. Kaynew's brow furrowed, but she took it in stride and said: "Oh, um, that's... fine. But yes, I do want your help with the speeder. Of course you couldn't work on it at night, Lady Proxima has to grant me access to the speeder in the first place, and obvioulsy I need to work at night..." she trailed off, unsure if her assasination missions were the best topic to have brought up when the Jawa before her was obviously still apprehensive. "I always have an hour or so around breakfast that we could use to work on it, and maybe a few hours during the day if I can persude Lady Proxima or my supervisor. But then we have to work with your schedule too, but it shouldn't take more than a couple hours hard work. I mean, all that happened was the outershelling on the right side blew straight off, at least in the front. And the power couplings gone completley haywire-might have to find a smuggler to help us replace that- and then of course the wires controlling the steering have gone loose. Look at me, I don't even know what I'm talking about, this is all what I've heard from other technicians but none of them seemed to want to help me out. Shouldn't be too tough though, its a Joben T-85, so fairly common." Kaynew was rambling now, a bad habit of hers, but she didn't quite no what else to say, and the oddity of the droids and the Jawa were enough to throw her off. Still, she liked the little guy, and hoped that he would agree to help her. She took a breath, and then continued:

"And in exchange, I'd give you any protection you might need, at least till the end of the year. But I'm sure by then the speeder bike will have broken down a lot more, and we can make the same deal again if you want to. Obviously I'm handy with a sniper, but really any form of fighting is in my expertise, anything from physical combat to detonatives." Worried she was scaring him again, and wanting to move on in case he might catch her bluff (she really wasn't all that handy with detonatives) she asked: 

"So, is it a deal?" Kaynew extended her hand downward eagerly, hoping that she might not gain just a technician, but a friend as well. 

Before the Jawa could respond, Kaynew heard a hissing noise and looked farther into the room, craning her neck and standing on her tiptoes, montrals brushing the celing. The noise had come from an odd sort of bat-parrot cretaure, which was perched upon the shoulder of a Twiliek, the very same one from breakfast and the head overseer of all the scumrat smugglers. 

"Is there a problem here, Mar-Shayal?" asked the Twiliek. So that was the Jawa's name. 

((I have a picture of the bike here just in case it might be helpful))

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Mar-Shayal had just started to reply "I can certainly give it a try. I don't really have a schedule though. Just sort of-" and was just about to shake on it when Mizuki bust in asking if there was a problem with a tone of extreme suspicion in her voice.

Mar-Shayal replied "Problem? N-no. I don't think so. Not yet anyway. She wants me to fix something for her." He was going to end it there but then remembered something else and pointed at the probe droid to add "H-He agreed to let me fix him.....by the way." He attempted to smile like he had last time they talked. Mar himself didn't know why he tried smiling at anyone given they wouldn't be able to see it. Maybe it was really more to himself in an attempt to convince himself that things were ok. Maybe he thought his voice would shift to match easier if he smiled.

The buzz droid watched the blue Twi'lek and her weird pet with mild interest wondering if this was someone else he had to worry about being a threat. He did not start his drill spinning again though. That had been a bad idea even the first time and was worse now given more people meant a higher likelihood someone might react to the threat with a threat and a higher likelihood things would go more wrong if they went wrong then if they went wrong when there were less people.

Nikita Haerlo ~

Nikita stomped on one of the men's feet. He yelled out in pain, scaring the other two. Quickly, Nikita shook her arm free from their grasps and ran back into the streets. She scrambled through crowds and alleyways just to get away. Nikita could hear them behind her, their feet pounding against the cement to get to her.

 

Nikita found a rope-like thing hanging down from a building and grabbed onto it, pulling herself up until she was on a steel awning of a shop. Nikita ran along the awning in fear. Her legs moved faster with every inaccurate blaster shot.

 

Suddenly the awning had stopped, and either Nikita was to jump off and onto the ground, or jump to the next building. She knew she wasn't a spider, so she decided not to risk it. The men were practically on her 'tail' now. Nikita was tieing up her long braid like a bun on her head when she tripped. Her chin hit a brick slightly sticking up from all of the others. The men surrounded her and she winced, ready to witness her own death.

 

One of the men picked her up, and lifted his hat off. It was the man she had stolen the shiny object from. Nikita quaked nervously. He looked at her for a moment and sighed, putting her down. 

 

"Scram, and don't come back to this part of the streets or you'll be Jabba's next meal." 

 

Jabba? Who's that? Nikita thought with interest, but she realized she didn't want to find out. Nikita nodded and walked off, rubbing her chin and her elbows. She pulled some patches out of her pocket and placed them where bloo.d started to seep from her wounds. 

 

Nikita glanced around, trying to play off the big feat that had just occured and made her way to the droid workshop. There she found the twi'lek, Mizuki.

 

"Is there a problem here, Mar-Shayal?" Nikita had heard her saying. She decided to interrupt.

 

"Lady Proxima said I had to report to you what I found. I don't know if you're who she's talking about, but I didn't find anything on the streets. I'm Nikita," she said. "She also said you would give me my next assignment, or something like that?" 

 

Nikita gazed at the Jawa and droid apologetically. 

 

"Um, I can wait, you guys finish..." she ended carefully.

Kaynew Elian

The Jawa she now knew to be Mar-Shayal agreed to her plan, though he sounded hesitant. His mention that he had no real schedule would work much better than if he did, as now she could be more flexible, and now with a bit of luck she could be back on the streets racing again in no more than a few days. But her elation on having her speeder bike finally fixed, as well as maybe gaining a new friend, was quelled by the tone of the Twiliek when she had asked if there was a problem. She had been very assuming when she'd said that, but then again Kaynew supposed it was her own fault for not realizing that there was someone else in the room beside the droids and Mar-Shayal.

She watched, playing and analyzing the situation over in her mind as Mar-Shayal told the Twiliek something about the probe droid, she was only half listening. Her full focus was on the buzz droid, who itself looked like it was contemplating the situation before it. Something was bothering her about that droid; it seemed to be much more adcanced, even for being military grade. 

Suddenly and unnanounced, a female belonging to an alien species she did not recognize burst in the room, covered almost head to toe with periodic and bleedin.g wounds, most of which were covered up by bandages. They looked fresh, but from her expereince, definatley were not blaster wounds. 

"Lady Proxima said I had to report to you what I found. I don't know if you're who she's talking about, but I didn't find anything on the streets. I'm Nikita," she said. "She also said you would give me my next assignment, or something like that?" the girl said, evidentley not realizing that the room was occupied beyond the Twiliek. Even without knowing her, Kaynew already took pity on her; Lady Proxima would not react well to a pickpocket returning empty-handed. She herself shuddered to think what the consequences would be if she failed to ki.ll a target; surley it would be torture, or even death. 

The girl, Nikita, looked around the room, noticing the droids and Mar-Shayal. 

"Um, I can wait, you guys finish." she said apologetically. Not wanting to alarm her or make her think she was eavesdropping, Kaynew entered through the doorway and said:

"No, you go ahead. Mar-Shayal and I were just finishing up an agreement." She gave a pointed look at the Twiliek as if daring her to disrupt their deal. What an odd bunch of scumrats they made: a smuggler, a sniper, a technician, and pick pocket.

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

The buzz droid gave the sniper a dirty look for the (what he assumed to be a) dirty look she was giving him. Then he noticed the b.lood on this new girl. Or....coming out of this new girl. "WOE! She's had a bad day!" he chattered.

That's when Mar-Shayal noticed it too. "Are you ok?!" he said with concern. He cringed at the sight of those wounds. They looked painful. Possibly dangerus even.

Nikita Haerlo ~

Nikita’s hand flew up to her chin, covering it. 

 

“Y..yeah, I’m okay, thanks...” she muttered. Nikita was about to mention going back into the streets when she noticed a weight in her back pocket. She pulled out a small bead-like thing and brought it to her eyes. It was the shiny object from earlier! How did it get there?

 

Nikita let out a breath of relief. She’d be spared by Proxima today. It might not be much, but whatever it was, it looked expensive.

Kaynew Elian

Kaynew has been about to comment on the state of the girls wounds, but was stopped by a sudden high pitched beeping noise that starteled everyone in the room. It was coming from her tracker, and meant she was being directly summoned by Lady Proxima herself. For any other scumrat, this could only mean bad news, but as a sniper, she was overjoyed to hear it. Direct summons had always meant being called on a much larger mission, missions that in the past had shown to take several days, as their targets were almost always off world. Of course, escape during these missions were not possible, it was then when their slaving trackers were activated, promising a painful death. Y detonation to anyone foolish enough to attempt to run away. 

The others in the small repair area looked at her quizically, and she could see the buzz droid go on the defensive, slowly spinning his blade once in a circle.  

“Guess the speeder will have to wait.” She said, rubbing her neck and giving her new Jawa friend an apologetic look. “This means a new mission, and I gotta report in immediately or Proxima will have my hide.” Kaynew said by way of explanation. To her, a new mission meant a secure promise of meals, but she could only imagine what it would mean to them. D.eath, certainly, maybe even downright murde.r. She waved goodbye, wishing that she could stay and Hera what I had wounded the girl so bad, or maybe talk with the little Jawa a bit more (she found his personality to be love able, and frankly, a nice change of pace). Walking out the door, her Montrals brushed the top frame and she thought she heard a low pitched hiss coming from the Twileks pet. 

She turned to face the room, and the Twiliek issued a final warning to her, promising that she would stand behind Mar-Shayal if Kaynew were to ever bully the Jawa. Though a bit offended, Kaynew certainly understood where she was coming from; there were very few sane people in the galaxy who would willingly trust a sniper. But as she turned to look her in the eyes and nodded to afirm that she would never take advantage of her new friendship, the Togruta saw that the smugglers' expression had softened a bit, and could almost detect a faint trace of a smile. Kaynew hoped this would be the beggining of a friendship, or at least some sort of mutual understanding or cooperation, as it was always useful to have such a smuggler, especially one so high ranking, on her side.

As she left, she thought she saw something gold and flashy hanging out of the wounded girls pocket,but when she turned her head to get a second look she saw nothing there. Figuring it must have just been her imagination, the Togruta hurried down the allyways and towards the next mission awaiting her. The robotic beeping of the buzz droid followed her out the door, and, not for the first time today, she wished that she understood droidspeak.

 

((I’m going to be without computer or internet access till Friday, so I just kind of wrote myself out of the story for the next few days, but if you guys feel like Kaynew should be in a Scene at all between now and Friday, then by all means go ahead and write for her!! BTW, this is my first RP ever and I just have to say I love it and can’t wait to get back to writing!!))

 

((Hey guys, I edited this a bit to fit with some of the other posts. Just a note, I think with all the entrances and exits of the charecters our timeline may have gotten a bit screwed up but as long as the dialouge is still there and relativley makes some sense I think we should be okay :) I think it makes sense for everything that Kaynew leaves before Regen enters))

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Mar-Shayal glanced around franticly afraid something in the room was about to explode before he heard the sniper state that she had to go. Mar-Shayal didn't really want to think about the types of jobs that someone confirmed to be a sniper not just by her scary weapons but by her stating she was one would be. Unluckily for him, he didn't have to. The Buzz droid brought it to mind for him.

"I take it someone's going to d.ie soon. Yeah?" he chattered.

Mar-Shayal went a little pale.....luckily or maybe unluckily no one could see it. Luckily so he didn't seem rude to the leaving sniper. Unluckily because the Buzz droid didn't know he was making Mar-Shayal uncomfortable. Though, given the droid's personality so far that might not save Mar-Shayal anyway. 

The Buzz droid continued "I take it that's no security ether. No one waists a sniper on security. That's an assassination on somebody. 100%. You know, if that probe droid is right about you all mostly being kids this is very confusing. Is the sniper a kid? Or is she an adult? Do they use kids for this kind of stuff because that's ether the most brilliant even if evil plan ever thanks to being unexpected or it's just silly."

Mar-Shayal told him "I....really don't want to talk about this."

The Buzz droid said "What. You one of those people who just closes their eyes and pretends certain things aren't going down? Cuz that's not healthy."

Mar-Shayal whispered to him "Talking about certain things and having certain opinions isn't always healthy ether. I don't want to say anything that might get me k.illed so please don't make me talk about this."

The Buzz droid stared at the jawa for a moment. Then made a noise that didn't really mean anything, sort of the droid equivalent of a snort, before going quiet.

"....Thank you." Mar-Shayal whispered after a pause.

For some reason that made the Buzz droid do a double take at the jawa. For a moment Mar-Shayal worried he might have offended him somehow but no drill spinning or other signs of being agitated were present in the Buzz droid so Mar-Shayal couldn't really read the look he got.

Mizuki Starstrider

Mizuki nodded, glancing at the cranky probe droid and turned back to Mar-Shayal and the Togruta girl with the bike. "Just make sure you don't give Mar-Shayal a hard time, ok? I don't tolerate bullies. And Mar-Shayal, you let me know as soon as you feel like you need, help, got it little guy?" She told the two, relaxing a bit when she recognized Kaynew. She was an amazing speeder bike pilot and had a decent bike on top of that. Mizuki made a mental note to herself to ask the purple striped Togruta. She saw the facial markings but didn't recognize the design. She recalled stories of a famous Togruta Jedi, two actually. Shaak Ti and Ashoka Tano. Mizuki glanced up when someone else came in. She recognized the near human. Nikita, one of Proxima's snipers. She'd given her the weapons and guns she needed personally multiple times. She also noticed the bleeding chin. She also noticed the shiny bead thing that she held. She crossed her arms. "Find anything good today?" She asked, turning her attention to Nikita. "You need medical attention?" She asked, noting her bleeding chin as well. She saw that Kicee had her eye on the shiny thing. She knew how much Kicee liked shiny things to play with. Whenever she could, Mizuki swiped bits of tin foil, aluminum foil or scraps of metal for her to use as toys

Nikita Haerlo ~

Nikita looked worriedly at Mizuki’s pet as she caught him gazing at the thing that shifted colors between gold, purple, and a cloudy white. 

 

“I think I’ll be fine...” Nikita didn’t want to be sent for medical attention where she could be found by Proxima and forced to hand over what she found. The colors on it had sparked her interest, so, slowly, she put it back into her pocket. She let out a sigh.

 

If she was to keep it, she would have to go as fast as possible back into the streets to find something else. Or, she could give it to Proxima and be forced to forget it forever. Nikita hesitated, half hoping someone would help her out.

Regen spotted Mizuki and her

Regen spotted Mizuki and her pet the minute he arrived. There're a small group around her. Regen doesn't really care much about the other outside them being on the same boat as him so he Doesn't pay attention to their conversation or thinging obeou joining in. All he need is just to hand in the stuff to the lady and he will be done for the day. As he moved closer however, he recognized the jawa, one of the better one he'd talk to sometime, he also recognized the other around as well although they didn't know each other personality and he feel alright to leave it at that. One of them though, the older half human. She looked as beat up as him if not a little worse. Regen always resent violence on woman.

a muffled conversation indicate that she didn't find anything useful. Regen looked at the jewel, look back up at her then signed miserably. he doesn't really understand himself but before heknew it he walk passed them and carefully, in the similar tactic one would use to pickpocket stuff, he instead insert the jewel into her pocket.

why he did that, he wasn't really sure. That lady is an adult already, she should be able to take care of herself, and yet a kid like him decided to go and do that? Maybe it's just his impulse, maybe it his instinct, maybe he want to get beat up worse, matybe it's the he hate seeing woman look this beat up, he doesn't know, what's done is done. it's not like he could pickpocket it back agin.

Keeping passive facade, regen mused wheter he could sneak away with this but he has a feeling mizuki or her bat might already have their eyes on him, so he just face the storm head up "yo, old lady" he said, their age aren't even that far apart but like mentioned before, he like to rile her up, ruffing her feather "the weather's nice, don't you think!? Hey listen, about the stuff i was suppose to bring in, i think my coat pocket's kinda torn at the moment so it must have fell out on the way. how about you helpa brother out and look away this one time or! I could go back out real quick and if i'm lucky, it might still be there, how about it? Okay let me just--" Regen attemped to continue walking without hanging around

Nikita Haerlo ~

Nikita blinked at Regen in confusion and shook her head. She decided to keep the stone. Which meant she would have to go back into the streets. 

 

Without another word, Nikita slipped away and back into the bustling town. Nikita zeroed in on a young girl who seemed to be lost. At first, Nikita felt horrible, but then she remembered it was her life or the young girl’s possessions. 

 

“Hey, are you alright?” Nikita bent down to the girl with fake sympathy. 

 

“I lost my mother!” She wailed loudly. Nikita quieted her urgently. 

 

“Where did you last see her?” Nikita asked gently. The girl shrugged, tears streaming down her face. Her cheeks were covered in dust. She wiped away the tears and gazed at Nikita with hope. Nikita crouched down and gave the girl a hug. Nikita felt the girl relax; hesitantly, Nikita reached her hand into the girl’s coat pocket and took out a bag of coins. The girl’s wails has stopped and she was now hiccuping. Her breathing steadied and she pulled away. Nikita frantically hid the coins.

 

“I last saw her in that shop,” she pointed to the one Nikita was almost captured in. Nikita’s eyes widened. “I heard her scream, so I thought she was just laughing, but she didn’t come out.”

 

Although the shop was too dark to see inside, Nikita knew that was who she saw dead on the counter. The girl’s mother. Proxima’s place was horrible. But, she thought to herself, it could be the only hope for this girl. No one would take her in. 

 

Nikita picked up the girl who seemed about four or five. “I’m taking you home,” Nikita smiled with sadness.

Mizuki Starstrider

Mizuki glanced around as another person she didn't recognize came in. She saw he had almost carrot colored hair and wore oversized clothes. She let Nikita leave as Kicee hissed, her wings flaring at the newcomer. She figured Nikita could handle herself and the girl probably needed to steal something for Proxima anyways. She was tempted to send Kicee after her, but decided against it. She doubted the near-human would appreciate a somewhat shiny, grimy iridescent lizard-bat following her. Right now she was more worried about Mar-Shayal overtaxing himself with work. She was pleased that the little guy got the buzz droid to cooperate. If he could get it working properly, the sabotage droid would come in handy. Especially for the smuggling raids she had to pull on occasion. "OK, nothing to see here folks. Anyone not working for me today needs to leave and let us do our jobs. Go on, shoo!" She told the small crowd that came through her domain. This was HER storage tunnel. She needed the space. Kicee flared her wings and hissed at the newcomers, glaring at them with her "better go or else I scratch you and/or bite you" look as she settled. "Don't you all have work to do?" She asked, getting between the small crowd and little jawa. 

(please note that yes, Kicee is a female lizard-bat, not male. She's a bit picky about being referred to as a male)

Regen holtcrow

Regen slipped passed easily, easier than he has anticipate. It's really anticlimatic. And then he realized that the lady didn't even recognize him, and it hurt more than he initially thought. Of course she wouldn't recognized him, a boy, a scumrat boy in the sea of other scumrat in this freakin hole of a--

But that's also mean he can probably get away without handing in anything today too, of course unless the big lady herself stepped in, which is possible but unlikely so now he has a choice to call it a day or actually go back out like he said. he chose the later, but not motivate by wanting to finish his job but more toward wanting to clear his frusteration and kicking the first rock he see.

and so he did, with a grunt and watch the small think flew high and maybe it would hit someone's head to and it would be sastisfying.

to his horror as he follow the movement of flying rock, his eye landed on a child and a lady...

"sh--HEY WATCH OUT!" Regen imediatally called out, and running toward them for some reason, even though it's impossible for him to catch up to the rock he kick himself

thankfully the offensive object didn't land on the kid nor the near-human like he thought. Regen slowed down to the hult and almost trip ungracefully. he catch his breath " that was close, sorry about--hey wait it's you!" it's the near-human he gave the jewel to "Why are you outside again! Big sis? I saw you just now, aren't you got whatever you are eh...looking for already?" like the stuff he unnessecary stick his neck out for her for? He thought.

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Mar-Shayal was flattered that someone would stick up for him the way Mizuki was now. He didn't know how necessary it was this specific time as no one had actually been threatening him even if one of the people had been a little intimidating but he was still flattered non-the-less. Mar glanced back at the probe droid wondering if he should start working on him or if that would be rude before he was sure Mizuki was done with him. The probe droid himself just hung back seemingly not interested in the conversation of strangers that didn't relate to him. The Buzz droid on the other hand was definitely interested and was continuing to eye everybody even when they were leaving.

Kaynew Elian

Eighteen hours later, Kaynew found herself walking down the railing of a ship and onto the surface of the planet Toydaria. She'd been told that her target had been hard to find, but that after months of searching they had finally tracked him down to the outer Mid-Rim planet. Like usual, she had not been given a reason behind the assignment, only a small and blurry picture, this time of a middle aged man with balding black hair and a name, Macen Veggan.

Her w.eapons and gear having already been re-cleaned and checked over, she had no excuse but to head out, after it was made clear by the pilot just how effective her tracker really was, and how she would most assuredly be blown to bits lest she try to make her escape. Though she heard this lecture often, she rarely went off-world, and most certainly never this far, so his warnings had been especially harsh and morbid this time round. Of course, the pilot himself had similar precautions placed on him, given the freedom his job allotted him, making the lecture a bit easier to bear. 

As she climbed some of the coral-like plants, trying to get a better look at her surroundings, she thought of the one detail that had stood out to her looking at the picture of the man. In the very corner, half cut off and barley visible, there were several medals, and the Imperial insignia, on the left side of his chest. Judging by the color and arrangement of the medals, he was or at least had been a corporal, though what he was doing on a planet currentley unoccupied by the Imperials was a mystery to Kaynew. (As Toydaria was in Hutt Space, the Imperials were wary and most often kept their distance). He had to have made some sort of black market deal with Lady Proxima, one that had obviously not gone well for the leader of the White Worms, hence why she was here to assasinate the man. Though it would seem odd to most that a single, young asassian would be sent out after such an important target, to Kaynew it only showed how little her superiors cared about her life and the danger she would be in. 

Once she reached the top, she used the scope of her sniper to zoom in on the horizon. To the Northwest, she saw a small cluster of buildings on the horizon and decided to head in that direction to inquire about information. Normally, she had a much smaller range in which to search, so she had accepted that this mission might take several days. 

 

When she approached the cluster of buildings, she saw it teeming with both Toydarians flying several feet off the ground, as well as every other species in between walking on the ground. Though obvioulsy this was not the capitol, it seemed apparent that it was the only sort of civilizaztion in this part of the planet due to how crowded it was. Heading towards the most populated building (what appeared to be a bar), Kaynew sat down and peered around the crowd, hoping to find some clue of her target. Though she did not expect him to be found right out in the open, it was likely that an Imperial officer, whether former or current, would at least have made some contact with someone during his time on Toydaria. Unless, of course, he knew that Lady Proxima would be after him, in which case her job just became much, much harder. 

She sat at her small booth, staring down anyone who moved to sit closer, and thought about how she would most efficently be able to track down her target. After almost an hour and a half of waiting, she had decided to stand up and ask the bar tender for any useful information he might have, when she saw a heavyset, weaing a light brown overcoat with dark blue pants, surrounded by lots of laughing humans, humanoids, and aliens alike. 

"Drinks for the lot!" she heard him declare, which was met by rounding applause and whoops from his party. She turned her head farther away from him, her hood shading her face. She had no reason for doing this, of course, other than just plain paranoia. Her plans on interrogating the bar tender were stalled by the group of people that crowded around him, placing their orders and clapping the heavyset man on the back. Another fifteen minutes went by, and the crowd subsided. She walked to the bar and opened her mouth to call over the bartender, when she heard one of the members of the newly arrived group say something that caught her interest.

"We used to serve together, him and I, did you know that?"  It was the man who had bought drinks for the large group, a decision that had already begun to impact him in several obvious ways. "Serving together" could only mean one thing, the Imperial Army, which was enough for Kaynew that she drifted over to their general proximity and listened in closley. "We were both officers for three years in some mining moon or another in the Outer Rim. Course, Macen went on to much greater things than I, but we all know where that landed him don't we?" He said with a laugh. The sniper was now fully poised, every muscle in her body tense and waiting for any information on a location she might gather. 

"And that, my friends, is why you never want to go back on a deal with Lady Proxima." finished the man, taking a large swig of his drink and slapping it down on the table to be refilled again. Having the confirmation that she needed, Kaynew stealthily swiped the drink of an Aqualish at another table and placed it in front of the old Imperial officer, asking: 

"What happened?" She tried to sound as innocent as possible, peering up at him doe eyed and drawing up a chair. The Togruta had made sure that Lady Proxima's symbol was no longer visible on her clothing. Unconcerned by the sudden interruption (the man had undoubtedly already had too much to drink) he smiled lopsided at her and said: 

"Made a deal with Lady Proxima. Some slimy crimelord in the Corellian system. White Worms. You may have heard of 'em." Anyway, promised her that he'd look over some of her illegal activities going on in Duro, some sort of smuggling, in exhange for some of the goods." He finished there, looking at Kaynew for a reaction. She urged him forward, having already guessed as much herself, saying:

"And then?"

"And then? And then he never overlooked it. Took some of the illegal detonators and bailed on Proxima. Shut down the smuggling in and out of that planet. She must have lost a fortune." Kaynew unknowingly nodded, remembering a time when the meals had been smaller and the work hours longer. "Anyway, this was years ago. Turned up around here, on Toydaria, somewhere. Reckons he was safe, being so close to a rival crime lord"-by this he was refrencing the Hutts- but I says, but I says to him, Macen, if you're gonna hide, you've got to go somehwere in the outer rim, somewhere where no one will ever find you."

"So then you know where he is?" asked Kaynew, taking a risk and trying to sound impressed. 

"Of course I do. Only you've lost your tauntauns if you think I'm gonna tell you." he said, sounding wary for the first time. Maybe he could hold his drink after all. 

 

When the man had been lured outside and then banged up and left in an alleyway, she finally had Macen Veggan's location. She had felt bad hurting him; even drunk he had still been nice, and he had proved extremely helpful, but a job was a job and she did what she must. He had told her that he lived a couple miles east of the town, if you could even call it that. 

Kaynew drew her cloak closer to her, the day having long turned into night, and yawned. She walked onward for almost another three hours, having no means of transportation, following no directions except heading East, and occasionally climbing the coral plants again and looking for any buildings in the distance, though it was hard to see through the darkness. Finally, she saw one, a small light being the only tell tale sign, and slowly walked towards it. Her footsteps made little noise in the night, the padding and absence of undergrowth adding to her stealth. 

When she had walked within two hundred meters of the house, she stopped, climbing again onto the nearest coral plant and laying down on the farthest reaching branch towards the building. Settling in, she quickly arranged her sniper and lay waiting for Macen to come out at some point, knowing he had to, knowing it would be too risky to lure him out herself.

At last she saw him as he came warily out of his house, though for what reason she did not know. His hood was up, the same way she wore hers, but one quick turn of his head and she saw that he matched both the picture and the man in the bars description. Waiting for him to come into her best shot range made her feel cowardly, weak, and no better than the scum she worked for, but again, it was better her than him. Kaynew's body began to shake again, seize up as she readied the gun and aimed it just so it would strike his temple. Going straight for the k.ill was not only the most efficent, but it was the largest comfort she could provide. Her finger tightened around the trigger, and then, just as she was about to shoot, a laser blast came out of nowhere, hit Macen straight in the heart, causing him to fall face foward into the dirt. 

Kaynew remained shocked for only a fraction of a second before she traced the laser blast to a source and saw a quick glimpse of flashing metal. Leaping down eight feet from the branch to the ground, she stumbeled only a little bit before charging past Macen's life.less body and running after the other sniper. Long gun gripped in her hand, she sprinted after the mysterious figure, who appeared to have just noticed her, giving Kaynew the headstart. The chase did not last for more than a few moments until Kaynew ran up behind the other sniper, tackling her from nehind and pinning her to the ground with her knee.

"Who are you?" she asked, flipping them over while aiming her own sniper rifle straight at their temple. The other assasian removed their oddly shaped silvery metal mask, revealing a twenty something year old human female with dark black hair with matching eyes and hooded lids.

"Before you shoot me," said the girl, smiling in spite of the sniper gun being aimed straight at her head. "Let me give you an offer I can't refuse.

Almost a whole day later, Kaynew barged in through the tunnel into the smugglers den, where the Twiliek supervisor with the batlike pet on her shoulder stood suprised looking. Without missing a beat, Kaynew said: 

"We need to talk."

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Eventually Mar-Shayal had just started to inch backward to see if Mizuki stopped him. She seemed busy after all so not wanting to waist time (which he thought was more likely to get him in trouble then starting to work when someone wanted to talk to him) he headed over to the probe droid to start work on him. Mizuki could always approach him when she didn't have something else to do after all. His current job didn't involve going somewhere he would be out of easy reach. He opened an access pannle then froze. "What the-" was all he could think for a second. This poor droid had a HOLE through his inner workings. A burned hole. The jawa was apparently staring in there for a noticeable amount of time as the Buzz droid came over to see what was up. Despite still being quite afraid of the Buzz droid Mar-Shayal asked him "Does that look like what I think it is to you?"

The Buzz droid replied "I don't know what you think it is buuuuut it looks like he's been shot to me. Literally."

So the made for war droid thought it was a blaster hole too. Mar-Shayal took that as an absolute confirmation and mumbled in astonishment "No wonder he didn't want anyone fixing him. His last mechanic just left this horrible hole in him and covered it up! Poor thing."

He couldn't help but have sympathy for the probe droid. Said droid HAD just stood up for him against the Buzz droid earlier giving Mar-Shayal sympathy despite stating a dislike for young people so Mar sort of felt his sympathy was owed back droid or not. Mar-Shayal occasionally held a similar opinion of droids that other people did but not nearly as often. His rank was not all that much higher then them so he didn't have room to be high and mighty even if it were in his personality to do so.

Not that it was.

Mar did not consider every single droid he encountered intelligent but he had certainly met enough of them to know intelligence was absolutely possible and he always treated any droid he just met with politeness when he could. It was the easiest way to avoid conflict sometimes. This was also one reason that lead to Mar-Shayal becoming one of those people who could get emotionally attached to a droid. He himself admitted it might be a little odd. The concept of droids themselves were a little odd. People didn't often think of them as odd just because they were common but Mar knew it was odd. A gadget that could grow a personality if allowed to do so......was ODD. Despite often working on droids and knowing how they worked Mar-Shayal wasn't sure exactly how they went from semi-smart tool to metal person so easily. It was a little concerning to be honest. Could other things do that? Did space ships cuss and bad mouth each other in combat? If he called one dirty was more then the pilot insulted? Secretly Mar worried about such things. He hoped droids were just an anomaly but just in case he would never insult a space ship, or a landspeeder or a computer or any other manner of machine. Was he paranoid? Maybe. But it just wasn't worth the risk. 

Thoughts returning to the probe droid Mar-Shayal realized he would be needing parts. He started rummaging through the storage before needing to bother anyone.

 

 

((Feel free to say Mar-Shayal did have to go to Mizuki for parts at some point if you want))

Mizuki looked up when she heard someone rummaging around in the droid parts. She knew who it was. Mar-Shayal no doubt. And she was right. Kicee poked her head into the box, chirping to get the Jawa's attention. "Hey Mar - need anything in particular?" Mizuki asked, coming over to see what Kicee was up to, hoping she didn't scare the little rodent out of his robes. The little iridescent lizard-bat always had a soft spot for the Jawa. She couldn't blame her little friend. She did too. He was the one bright personality down here that didn't always get her down. She could always count on him to help her out if needed.

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Mar-Shayal did sort of flinch at the sudden chirp followed by a voice but he'd been bracing himself for possible interruption so it wasn't as bad as the first time. "I uh....the probe droid was sort of....shot. And I don't mean shot as in electronics being shot I mean actually shot. Someone shot him and instead of fixing that they just replaced his outside. It looks like the circuits linking several of his limbs to....you know....the main thinky bits were severed so....I need quite a few wires. And some general computer chip type stuff. Anything I might be able to modify to reconnect all those....connections."

The Buzz droid stated "Main thinky bits? Really? You're a mechanic and you call them thinky bits?! What's wrong with you?! No one'll take you seriously talking like that!"

Mar replied to the Buzz droid "I'm sorry I just....get a bit nervous sometimes."

The Buzz droid stated "Nervous about what? Just talking to people? That's silly too!"

Mar-Shayal didn't go against that. He didn't agree that it was silly, at least not around here but he wasn't about to argue with the Buzz droid. "Sorry." was all he said in reply.

Mizuki chuckled. "Sounds like he need a new processor unit to replace the one that got destroyed when he got shot. I've got a few designed for sabotage droids in here somewhere..." She mused, Kicee immediately diving into one of the crates and coming up with the part in her mouth, handing it to her. "Ah, here we go! Thanks Kicee." She told the lizard-bat, handing it to Mar-Shayal. "Need anything else?" She asked, looking at the little buzz droid. He was pretty banged up and she wasn't fluent in droidspeak, so she decided to let Mar-Shayal let her know if he needed anything. She knew EXACTLY where everything was and how much they had. She ran most of the smuggling gigs after all. It was her job to know where everything was when Lady Proxima needed it. Especially when it came to her favorite snacks.

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

((For the record it's the probe droid who has the shot processor but I'm going to reply anyway assuming you meant the one my characters meant. The Buzz droid is just talking because he's decided to give commentary on things. The probe droid doesn't really care enough to do the same. He's just been hanging out))

 

 

Mar-Shayal took the parts needed with a grateful "Thank you." then got back to work.

The Buzz droid chuckled an "I've got to see this." half expecting it to go badly given the jawa's lack of vocabulary literally any mechanic should know and followed him over.

Mar-Shayal suddenly found himself with a Buzz droid doing a creepiest backpack ever impression......again. Only this time Mar was trying to do something. Very aware of the weight of the droid, its dangerous tools pressing slightly through his cloths as the droid gripped him (even though they weren't hurting him) and a very literal feeling of having someone look over his shoulder the jawa asked "Do you HAVE to do this?"

The Buzz droid replied "I gotta climb you or I gotta climb him to see what's going on and he didn't like it much when I climbed him."

Mar-Shayal said "I don't really like it ether."

The Buzz droid said "Yeah but you're less likely to actually cause a problem cuz of it."

Still not daring to push it far Mar-Shayal just tolerated this for a while trying not to think of anything too disturbing and Buzz droid related. He didn't think of the obvious possible solution of just dragging over something else for the Buzz droid to stand on until the probe droid took pity on the jawa again and brought it up. It was that easy and after dismounting the jawa the Buzz droid stated "You know....I'm not doing stuff JUST to freak you out. We CAN compromise on some things. I sort of need you alive to avoid my master so I'm not going to up and k.ill you for no reason. Sheesh! So far you act more like a droid then me or him!" the buzz droid pointed at the probe droid who made an insulted noise at a DROID implying that acting like a droid was bad.

Mar- A.K.A. the person the Buzz droid was TRYING to insult- barely reacted at all just giving a shrug.

The Buzz droid stared at the jawa boy finding this....odd.

Mizuki Starstrider

Mizuki smiled, then turned her attention to the girl that just barged into her domain, Kicee hissing at her slightly. "Easy Kicee." Mizuki soothed, the lizardbat still hissing but relaxing onto her owner's shoulder, tail wrapped under her lekku and around her neck. "So what happened on your job? Use up all your amo or something?" She asked, raising an eyebrow at the girl, her lekku twitching a bit. She always twitched her lekku. If this was anything like the comlink message she got yesterday...

Flashback to yesterday

Mizuki had just given Mar-Shayal when she noticed something odd. Someone left their comlink behind. Weird. Everyone knew they were supposed to go to the charging stations when they weren't in use. The scumrats never got to use them. It was mostly Mizuki herself and the other rankers in the gang. She used them to coordinate with her teams in the field and her pickpockets. She slipped it into her pocket. She'd seen the "message waiting" light was on. She moved to the corner, Kicee keeping lookout. She turned it on. There was a woman in a mask - Mizuki could tell because she had a great eye for detail. ":If you are listening to this, then you're the one meant to find it. That, or I am making a huge mistake. I am Enfys Nest, leader of the Cloud-Riders. If you get this message, my sponsors are interested in you and any possible allies you might have in the White Worms. I am looking to recruit those who wish to fight back against the Empire rather than live as their slaves or as slaves of others. Meet me at the following cooridnates if you are interested in further details.:" The woman in the mask told her, the voice slightly distorted and Mizuki noted the coordinates that were included along with the message. She glanced at Kicee. This was her chance to get offworld and keep her promise to Mar-Shayal and get him back to wherever he came from. Thank the Force, she knew those coordinates. They were a building not far from the White Worms Den. 

(OK! First introduction of Enfys Nest! I'll have Mizuki meet with her first to set things up and she can tell the members of the gang who want to fight the Empire what's going on once she gets the details. Oh and if you see a colon with italics in the writing, that means it's radio communications or video link talk)

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Eventually the probe droid was fixed and the jawa went on to repair a few other droids while he was at it (including some work on the Buzz droid in an attempt to be diplomatic though it was still missing a leg by the end just from Mar not being able to find a Buzz droid leg and the Buzz droid not wanting other possible replacements offered for the moment). The rest of the day was rather normal for Mar-Shayal other then the Buzz droid following him around. Pretty much the only time said droid wasn't following him was when he had to go to the bathroom since who wants to see that. Mar-Shayal didn't like constantly having eyes on him. Espessully eyes of something who's intentions were not entirely clear. At one point another kid inquired on why the Buzz droid was following him around. Mar-Shayal glanced at the droid nervously remembering it telling him to pretend it was his droid before replying that it was so. In an attempt to prove it he called it by a name he just came up with on the spot. Fenk. The kid seemed to think it was cool that Mar had his own droid before leaving him be.

The moment they were out of earshot the Buzz droid turned towards Mar-Shayal and said "Fenk? FENK? Is that REALLY the best name you could come up with?

If the droid could see past Mar-Shayal's mask he would have spotted an awkward grin as he replied "S-Sorry. I was under pressure."

The Buzz droid said "Ah well. Beggars can't be choosers and it's better then no name I suppose."

There was one perk to being followed by something scary. Mar-Shayal found he wasn't bothered as often. Not so many comments on his high pitched voice, small size or race when he was getting a request to fix something (well, when Mizuki and her oddly friendly towards him bat thing weren't watching that was. They use to be the only deterrent). He guessed this was the type of protection the sniper offered as well. Not everyone was turned off by the presence of a small mechanical menace but it was noticeable regardless and now that he'd tasted a little bit of that freedom the sniper's offer was more interesting. Not that it wasn't before. He'd been kind of honored to have someone of higher rank speak to him as politely as she tried to even if his heart was racing at the thought of what her job was. Maybe a few more scary friends were exactly what he needed. Just as long as they didn't turn around and k.ill him later. People weren't scary for no reason after all.

Mar-Shayal was a bit exhausted near the end of the day. He went to sleep as early as he was allowed to trying to ignore the fact that a Buzz droid insisted on hanging with him even then. The droid didn't really need to sleep. He just wasn't yet sure of what might happen if he let the jawa out of his sight yet. Neither really trusted each other at this point in the relationship and the newly named Fenk knew it.

 

 

 

 

((Edited to add another scene of character development since no action today and it's not an interaction scene so it won't mess anyone else up))

 

 

Watching a jawa sleep was boring. Fenk was left to his thoughts. He could just power down but something was bugging him. Something that probe droid said about most of the workforce being children. Wasn't that....taboo for organics or something unless said kids were slaves? The Buzz droid took a glance at Mar-Shayal then skittered off risking the boy fleeing if he woke up without him. Fenk had to know more about this place. How could he navigate it if he didn't? Using his small size and ability to climb stuff to his advantage he kept mostly above people's heads as he slunk around. He tried to look busy in case someone did happen to look up hoping that him being with Mar-Shayal all day would help him not be suspicious. Fenk was not great at judging ages but it looked like that probe droid might have been right. There weren't a whole lot of people with wrinkles on their faces and there were a surprising amount of people who seemed smaller then usual for their race. Smaller usually emplyed younger with organics right? Cuz...they grew?....Like plants? That was a bit weird to the Buzz droid now that he thought about it. He wasn't sure how much he would like it if HE had to live with knowing he was slowly changing size. One day he might fit through a particular hole and another he might not. It sounded inconvenient. Returning to the topic at hand Fenk noted that some of the people wandering around taking orders had behavior not entirely unlike Mar-Shayal. That weirdly droidlike taking orders without question and always having a submissive look to the way they stood. Head lowered, trying to make themselves smaller so they weren't noticed. Fenk hadn't seen such behavior in biologicals since he'd been to Tatooine....and saw slaves.

Were these people....slaves?

Was his jawa a slave?

Great. Slave of a slave. That's always a great place to be.

Though the Buzz droid knew Mar-Shayal wasn't really his master he had to pretend he was so it was only slightly better.

Returning to Mar-Shayal the Buzz droid poked him a few times. The jawa snapped awake with a gasp before noting who had been touching him and making a "Why'd you wake me up?" sort of grumble as he lay back down. He was awake, just laying there. "What?" he sighed. 

Fenk asked "Mar-Shayal? How did you get here?" this was another thing bothering him. Jawas almost always came in groups. What was this one doing alone?

"I don't want to talk about it." Replied Mar so Fenk persisted "I'll keep poking you until you tell me."

Mar-Shayal sighed again then, desperate for some sleep he started to explain. "When I was really little.....well....even smaller then I am now.....someone took me from my home. They had me help them get things that didn't belong to them then dropped me off here. I mean, not EXACTLY here but you know....here. Then the white worms found me and....that's it really. I've been here since."

The Buzz droid stared at Mar-Shayal for a moment sort of like he had back when Mar had given him a thank you for not making him talk about something and when Mar had not been insulted by being compared to a droid. When the droid spoke he said "You can go to sleep now. I won't wake you up again unless it's actually important."

Mar-Shayal stared back through his impossible to read mask (yes he sleeps in his cloths) then turned over to and went quiet. The Buzz droid watched the jawa's breathing slow as he faded out of consciousness then turned and just stared at the hallway.

Kaynew Elian

The lizardbat hissed at her as she came in to the smugglers den, though at the moment Kaynew could care less. The Twi'liek looked mildly amused, though the smile quickly faded as she saw the urgent expression on Kaynew's face.

"Easy Kicee." said the Twi'liek, her lizardbat calming down but still hissing ever so slightly. "So what happened on your job? Use up all of your amo or something?" she asked, eyebrows raising and Lekkus twitching. Not answering, Kaynew looked around and took in all of the other smugglers, some of which had already begun to stare at her sudden intrusion. Here they would be all to easily overheard, they needed somewhere private where she could relate all the information the other sniper had told her to the Twi'liek. 

Kaynew grabbed the Twilieks arm (which was only met by more hissing from the batlizard) and dragged her well behind a large stack of crates that had yet to be unloaded until she was sure that they wouldn't be overheard, providing they kept their voices down. 

"Two days ago, I was sent out on a sniping mission to Toydaria. Same old, same old. My target was an old imperial officer by the name of Macen Veegan. Went back on a deal with Lady Proxima, cheated her or something. She normally doesn't send us after Imperials, but this was the exception I guess. Anyway, I got his location, tracked him down, but another sniper got him just as I was about to shoot. I got the jump on her, pinned her to the ground, and then-" Kaynew paused, unsure if she should continue or not. After all, this Twi'liek was pretty high up, as far as the White Worms go. Why should she have any reason to trust her other than her being friends with Mar-Shayal? "Can I absolutley trust that whatever I am about to say you will speak of to no one?"

Mizuki Starstrider

Kicee glanced at Mizuki with a look that said "Throw the kid a bone will ya? She's good to Mar-Shayal so she can't be all bad for a sniper". Mizuki had to agree with the lizardbat on that one. She turned back to Kaynew. "What kind of message did you get? And before you say anything, I know how to keep a secret kid. Everyone has secrets around here. And being a smuggler, I know how to keep my trap shut. It's how I get my supply sources to trust me. Which is more than I can say for some of the Grindalid around here I gotta keep in their fried fish." She pointed out, her left lekku twitching as she spoke, showing she was being serious. Whenever she was serious about something, her left lekku twitched like crazy. Everyone knew that. It was some weird quirk of hers. Han used to tease her about it when they were kids. But she usually got her payback by punching him in the face in response. Lady Proxima never objected as long as he could keep working afterwards.

Kaynew Elian

The Twil'iek assured Kaynew that she would be able to keep the secret. Though she still did not trust her entirely, she trusted the smuggler more than she trusted anyone else in the entire White Worm syndicate to be able to understand the seriousness of the message Kaynew had gotten from the other sniper. And besides, she did have a fair point about having to keep lots of secrets as a smuggler. Part of her wanted to ask what other secrets she might know, but she steered her mind back on track and focused. 

Nodding once to show that she understood, Kaynew took a deep breath and then launched into the rest of her story, heart rate speeding up as she thought of what could potentially happen to the both of them were they to be caught. 
"The sniper said she was part of some pirate group, the Cloud Riders. Lead by a guy named Enfants Nest or something like that." At this the Twi'lieks eyes lit up, and Kaynew sensed that this wasn't the first time she had heard these words. "At first, it sounded like they were just your regular old pirate group, you know, smuggling spice and weapons and what not. But then she kept talking, and it became clearer and clearer that they were anything but your average smuggling group." Kaynew paused here, both to let her words sink in and to remember how, at this moment back on Toydaria, she had helped the girl up and slowly lowered her gun, though not so much as to where she could not fire it again in a hearbeat. To put it away completley would be foolish; even the most censored of snipers knew that.

"She started talking about how she wanted to fight the Empire. Take it down little by little. Said we were all slaves under them, and how Enfants Nest wanted to change that. Overthrow the Empire. I guess Macen Veegan had done more than just go back on a deal. He'd found out about this group, the Cloud Riders, and they had to send a sniper after him just to make sure he wouldn't tell the Empire. Anyways, she got the jump on me, started asking me questions, like why I was sent to ki.ll him too." Kaynews skin began to turn a deeper shade of orange, it was embarassing to admit that she had let her gaurd down enough to allow this to happen. 
"I saw no reason to lie to her, so I told her the truth. About how I'm just one of the scumrats, and how there's a whole bunch of us out there, anything from technicians to snipers, like me. I mean, I didn't think she'd care that much about the whole thing, and beside, she had her gun straight at my forehead, so what else could anyone have done? But, anyways," said Kaynew, shaking her head. "She said her boss would be interested in recruiting a few of us to help them fight the Empire. I suppose they could always use a technician or two" (Kaynew added this in because she felt bad that she had already excluded Mar-Shayal enough) "and they said they would definatley need another sniper, or someone skilled in riding a swoop bike, but what they really seemed to need is a smuggler." Suddenly the reality of it all hit Kaynew head on. Fighting the Empire? Who were they kidding? But she had to finish out the story; she had already gone this far now and it would be pointless just to end it here. 

"Before she let me go and we both parted ways, she said that the Cloud Riders would be getting a message through  soon. Told me to tell anyone who I thought might be interested. Offered us freedom from this slimehole if we joined with them. But, can you imagine? Who would be foolish enough to join anyone to think that they could take down the Empire?" Kaynew's mouth was suddenly dry, though she didn't think it was from all of her talking. She couldn't help but feeling like they were being overheard. While Lady Proxima was certainly no friend of the Empire, she had to co-operate with them to be allowed to privatley run, and there presence was strong here on Corellia, especially in shaddier cities such as Coronet City. Trying to join the Cloud Riders if they even somehow got a message through would be no better than having a deat.h wish, though the promise of freedom could definatley not be ignored. Kaynew turned to the Twi'liek, waiting for a response while she herself mulled over the offer for the first real time.

Mizuki Starstrider

Mizuki blinked in surprise. The news earned a surprised squawk from Kicee. "Do you mean Enfys Nest? I got a similar message from her on a comlink I found in the supplies where it wasn't supposed to be. I know where everything goes so I KNOW when things are out of place here. I got invited to join her. I grew up on Ryloth during the end of the Clone Wars...I grew up on stories of Cham Syndulla and his rebel fighters fighting back against the Seperatists. Actually...Cham was a good friend of my parents. I met him once, before we came to Corellia. He was the one who gave me Kicee as an egg. I wanted to be just like him when I was a kid. Someone who would fight for what was right and stand up against bullies like the Empire. And by the way, Enfys is a woman. I could tell under the armor from the figure. When you're a Twi'lek who happens to be a smuggler, you pay attention to detail. Especially when your boss is a giant worm who likes her snacks at a specific time and you need to be able to find them quickly." She told the sniper. She was eager for a chance to stand up against the Empire. She thought originally by working up the ranks in the White Worms she could do just that, but she was nothing more than a glorified accountant who stole stuff for a greedy boss. Sure she stole from the Empire, but she wanted to do more than that and help out. She couldn't stand bullies. Especially not those that allowed her kind to be sold into slavery for profit. They even disbanded an anti-slavery committee that a Jedi had started during the Clone Wars.

The smuggler took the information in stride, revealing that she had already recieved a message as promised by the sniper. They worked much faster than Kaynew would have expected, she had obviously underestimated them. 

As the Twi'liek began to talk about Cham Syndulla ( a name that was only slightly familar to her) and growing up during the Clone Wars ( a name that was definatley familar to her), Kaynew began to realize that the Twi'liek actually believed that they could fight the Empire and defeat evil. She had believed in Cham, just as much so as she now believed in the Cloud Riders. In Kaynew's mind, it took a certain kind of bravery to be able to put your life down on the line for the greater good, something she privatley always admired. She herself was brave in many ways, but never brave enough to do something that risky. 

When the other sniper had offered Kaynew the chance at joining the Cloud Riders, she had immediatley agreed to it, though just in her mind. (She didn't want to appear to desperate and loose any sort of leverage she may have) The Togruta had been a slave her whole life, and she had been waiting her whole life for an opputunity that would allow her to gain her own freedom and carve her own path in life. But as far as staying with the group, she doubted she would for more than a few years. Just long enough to get some of her own money and not feel like she owed anyone anything anymore, and then she would be on her way, to a planet much nicer and cleaner than Corellia, maybe Naboo or Alderaan. 

To her, agreeing to try to take on the Empire seemed like a death wish, and she had no personal cause or drive to fight against them anyway. The only cause she would fight for was against slavery, and slavery had existed under the Republic, and it existed today under the Empire. She would never matter to the galaxy, so the galaxy would never matter to her. 

Focusing back on the conversation at hand again, the Twi'liek told her that Enfys Nest was actually a woman. Kaynew admired this attention to detail, it was definatley a skill that she needed but lacked what with both sniping and swoop bike racing. The smuggler took a stab at Lady Proxima, causing Kaynew to smile slightly. She didn't know how she coudl work in such close proximity to the leader of the white worms. The few times she and Kaynew had had to ineract (she mostly recieved her orders transferred through the Quarren) the Togruta had been repulsed both by Lady Proxima's looks and cruelty. 

Part of her wanted to ask how it was exactly that she had come to work on Lady Proxima, but she knew they had more pressing matters on hand. 

"Did they give you any cordinates or information about a possible meeting?" Kaynew asked, not sure what she wanted the answer to be.

Mizuki nodded when Kaynew asked if she had cooridnates. "Yeah, the basement of the old space museum. Where they had that old base during the battles of the Old Republic era when the old Sith Empire invaded. I know the location. I used to scrounge there all the time. There's some good stuff still in there from when it was used as a war bunker." She told Kaynew as Kicee relaxed onto her shoulder, wings folded neatly to her back with a nod. "I can get us there and if we need to tell Proxima, we can say I needed you for a scrounging mission or something." She told the sniper.

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

Someone approached Mar-Shayal attempting to wake him up.

In light of what he'd learned recently Fenk found himself not wanting the other person to disturb the Jawa. He wasn't quite sure why. The buzz droid had never been the sentimental type. He justified it in his head as his fate being tied to Mar as long as he pretended Mar-Shayal was his master and as such it was best for him if the boy was in as good of health as he could manage. This didn't quite feel accurate but it didn't matter. Whatever the reason it pushed Fenk to stand up and spin his drill at the intruder. Said intruder took a step back for a moment then despite that motion stating differently they snapped "You don't scare me droid! Out of my way!"

The Buzz droid chattered an "Oh yeah?" then jumped on the person. He didn't cause them damage. Just threatened too. Said person screamed while turning one way then the other trying to grab Fenk despite the droid getting onto their back where it was h.ard to reach him. Naturally the screaming woke Mar-Shayal who immediately called as quickly as he could "WhatAreYou- GetDown! Don'tHurtThem! We'llBeInSOMuchTrouble!"

The Buzz droid dismounted by simply dropping off. Several other people came because of the screaming and Mar-Shayal started to explain but lost his nerves and ran off. Fenk ran after him demanding to know where he was going.

Mar-Shayal was too afraid to answer directly but the Buzz droid soon got an idea of what he was doing as the Jawa started yelling "MIZUKI! MIZUKI!"

He couldn't see her at the moment even when he approached the general area where she usually hung out as unknown to him she'd ducked out of the way to talk about something secret but that's what the very undignified calling was for.

While Mizuki was waiting for a response from Kaynew, Kicee's head snapped up and the lizardbat took off before Mizuki could do more than ask "What's wrong?" when the little Jawa ran in looking for her. From the way she heard Kicee shriek, there must be an intruder. "OK, what's going on here?!" Mizuki demanded, speaking loud enough to be heard by them in the back room. She ran after Kicee, seeing her attacking the cloaked intruder. She couldn't tell what species they were but punched them - hard. Hard enough to knock the wind out of them and dropped low to sweep their legs out from under them. She pulled one of her DC-17s and aimed it at the intruder. "State your business! Or I'll have Kicee claw your eyes out before I shoot you!" Mizuki snarled, ready to defend the little Jawa without a second thought.

Jawa Mar-Shayal and Buzz Droid Fenk

The figure was just a random white worm member. Though that may have been easy to mistake given what they were wearing making them not easy to identify at a glance.

((I only called them an intruder because Fenk considered them one as they were trieing to wake Mar up when he needed the sleep. Also, I don't care if you decide on this character's species and gender or just leave them vague like I did. They're only temporary foils anyway.))

"Ay! I didn't start it! That droid attacked me!" the person stated pointing at the Buzz droid beside Mar-Shayal.

The Buzz droid chattered "I jumped on you! That's all!"

Mar-Shayal stated "I...I'm sorry for causing quite a ruckus it's just.... I did neglect to tell Fenk not to do that and....well....I don't think a sabotage droid jumping someone is a very good thing to happen. Am I in trouble? H-He didn't hurt them.....I don't think......if that means anything. I just don't want to get beat up. Please help? It won't happen again! I mean.....I'll try to make sure it doesn't happen again!"

The group who had originally come running at the sound of a scream came as well but they were watching things unfold. They looked confused.
