Alien Among the Galaxy

Incarceration
What do you do when you dont trust your lawyer?

Jabra Rothgar activates his hidden holo recorder. The scene opens up to him in a very confined space with mop buckets and broom sticks all around him.

A few weeks ago, I was Jabra Rothgar: I Hired Gun doing all he can to save his terminally ill daughter. A few days ago, I was Jabra Rothgar: a man on the verge of clearing his name through the discovery of an awesome power.

Today, I’m Inmate #TD074-655R, a Trandoshan hiding in a supply closet filming a holo journal while guards and two angry Wookiees search for me.

How did I fall so low?

Have I forsaken the Scorekeeper? I dont believe so. Then again, I have been too tolerant of the Wookie in my midst. Perhaps the Scorekeeper is punishing me for tolerating this sack of walking points. After all, I am in prison for his actions.

Then there’s my legal representation. Who is this Rylor Stark? He seems to be just another useless human. May the Scorekeeper help him if that’s true. No one will keep me from saving Prenom. If I have to spill blood to save my daughter from Star Bucks, then the blood of Pyronkuse and Dr. Rylor Stark will be first!

Many years later …

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

Fluidly the Bolt handle is engaged and pulled back, “This primitive slugthrower.” I think the thoughts to myself. The gun’s bolt makes a very audible
Click ….
I pull it ejecting the spent cartridge. The smell of spent black powder rich and sharp in my nose”To think my entire family, force users, light saber wielders, good men and women, killed by this…”
Click ….
I slide the bolt back into place. Pushing, engaging, and readying the next bullet to be sent on its way. Feelings the guns sturdiness in my hands solid reliable. “My whole family stolen, killed, massacred”. Another loud
Click ….
The bolt is reengaged ready to send another shot down range. Ready to extinguish another light. The calm washes over my body as I breath out … slowly steadily deadly
BANG!!!
… Without thinking, without emotion, without hesitation. The Shot vibrates through my body. I brace the impact like I have done what seems like millions of times before. Instinctively I reach for the bolt again

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

Now, I understand the 3 click guy, that’s not right anymore, his name his identity to me, the assassin. Now, I understand the assassins thoughts Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!! His breathing, his form, flawless, his thoughts … calm, peaceful, clear. He is a sniper hiding “as I am now”. Holding THIS slugthrower firing and immediately reloading, _click …. click …. click …. BANG, click …. click …. click …. BANG, click …. click …. click …. BANG.“ How long did it take me to be able to move the bolt action so perfectly that it creates the 3 clicks, to squeeze the trigger instead of pulling so the BANG is on target?” Now it is my turn to, be single minded, to do a job, to be emotionless. "How did I find myself following in the foot steps of the assassin, and not basking in the glory of the path of my family?

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

The sound, the feeling, the calm from the 3 clicks in my ear as I engage the target is eerie. My mind drifts as the force sends me … the emotions, the feelings, the dream, of my past. My father, mother everyone dead, torn from my mind by a lone assassin with THIS slugthower. A single minded person whose thoughts like my own concerned only with the repetitive 3

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

It has been years now since that day I am now of age, 21 and have climbed the ranks of Phoenix, the youngest candidate for phoenix Knite in millennia. I have earned my own Flame of the phoenix, my defining mark, my individuality.
PCQ1f_35xeKxAvGCNwSo-KXH17BugKE8OLo3qrSl3kBmAHeHoGod3A__.jpg

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

Another target another light … fades, disappears, and dies. Yet the force bombards me with thoughts of the past. I can not escape from its weight its ever watchful eye. Flare initiate I was unconcerned at the time with my rank. Until I learned of the freedom it granted. A new name a new identity replacing what that assassin stole from me. Flare initiate the name, the rank stood in my mind giving me … purpose, hope, strength. I embraced the fire that burnt in me for … revenge, knowledge, and understanding.

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

I was inducted into phoenix on the day of my death and rebirth. Phoenix Seer, Part of the prime council the head of the prime branch of phoenix inducted me. A great honor I am told. Yet I still do not know why he was there to begin with. The assassin left his slugthrower in my room, dropped unceremoniously to show his dead in killing my family. “This very same slugthrower.”

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

Phoenix Seer … taught me himself, tattooed me himself, saved me himself. I am a force user, hated, feared, in the galaxy. He taught me how … to fight, to survive, and to kill. He taught me the power of 3 as it … calms me, centers me, focuses me. It is the only thing I remember from my, old life. He taught me to hide my power trust in “THIS” rifle, but not to become attached… I am the weapon, I am the strength, I am the intent. This tool merely what I channel myself through

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

“I will avenge my family I will continue their lineage I will become strong. The force will guide me”. The force my only connection to my true life my true name.

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

“There has to be … another way, another path, another choice … my father’s way, my mother’s way, the way of the sword of the force. But where do I get a light saber where do I learn the sword? Where do I learn this path”

Click …. Click …. Click …. BANG!!!

“My job here is done” another mission another assassination, another contract, in the name of phoenix.” Why do these words always feel so heavy when I say them, then I realize. “I am no better.” The realization haunts me as I climb down to confirm my work … death, destruction pain, left in my wake. I quickly refocus myself, “I must find my family’s way!” My contract is to decimate a family of nobility corrupted by their power and greed, I kill every last one from the elder to the dog, not even the droids escapes. I reach into my utility belt and pluck my medallion. I leave it… my calling card, my resume, my individuality, among the scattered dead. “I am no better.” What I am, PHOENIX KNITE … this is my story, this is my pain, this is who I am!!!

Click …. Click …. Click ….

Finally Phoenix comes through for me. After so many man years of searching, abiding my time, and many contracts, I receive info about my father. Star Bucks is my lead. Find the head of Star Bucks, somehow I knew my journey would lead me there. I must obtain, acquire, commandeer my Families light sabers. For now I must move in small steps, acquisitions and concealing myself is my immediate goal. I successfully turn the jewels we lifted into money. One goal done I love my new look, Ill have Pyronkuse mod it for me.

Click …. Click …. Click ….
I receive a text on my datapad coordinates to the ship. What has this group done now, we were docked at the port or so I thought.
spatioport-theed-naboo.jpg
Now apparently they have fled and need to go now. This ought to be fun though. I arrive to find the group intact. In the middle of my interrogation lol. I get stunned and knocked out. How did I let my guard down so much. Enough to let someone get the jump on me the group and knock us all out?

Click …. Click …. Click ….

I am woken up abruptly by Ardana Ni’ete thank god all the hard to work to gain my money and armor did not go for naught. But damn to get force punched in the brain to wake me up. Doesnt anyone understand restraint. These people using the force so widly. More important who knocks out a team of deadly people and doesn’t take their weapons. The force has an amazing sense of humor. I wake up and immediately wake up … these are incredibly inept bounty hunters we aren’t even bound. It seems the group knows who thesehunters are. I keep quite waiting for an opportunity to strike ignoring all else as they throw insults back and forward. Until I hear the words “thermal" and "Mines” and the trigger is “here”. How dare he trap us like that and then to have the gaul to show us the detonator. The force serves me well and I rip from him that which he held over our head. Now the tides have turned. Now I have a reason to destroy something in front of me. Now for some action

Jabra Jailbreak or Big-break?

Jesus Rothgar is completely crazy what the double unicorn fuck? He admits it and of course they are going to lock you up you star crossed retard! The contract isn’t done and it doesn’t matter because the butler is in the jail that mission is lost and Jabra my only bet for getting off this planet and making some credits is in a maximum security holding cell awaiting trial. Looks like I’m gonna have to take care of this by myself.
I went to the jail and realized that my disguise as a diplomat might be able to get me some information easily at the front gate…well that FAILED. So I went about this the only other way I know how…to the Underworld! I located an ex-con who was able to explain to me the only secure way in and out of the jail there’s a private contracting company “Abstergo” that does patience within the prison. I “accidentally” ran into a “Abstergo” worker in an attempt to gain information and while the small talk was happening I stole his key and saw another worker who looked about my size I knock him out and steal his clothes but the boots are waaay too big.
I find a way to convince the guards and other “Abstergo” workers that due to me rushing I forgot my boots they let me in. I was able to eavesdrop on a conversation that let me know where Jabra and his weapons were. I tried to get the weapons and fucked up tripping a silent alarm that fortunately i was able to shut off but knowing that the alarm although silent was an alarm nonetheless I had to keep moving.
I found Jabra’s cell and there was another guard in the way I had to knock him out and I was about to release Jabra until he said he wanted to do this legally after much debate we came to a compromise I’ll stay in Nabu until the results of his trial and based on the ruling I will act accordingly. He better seriously know what he’s doing…I guess I should try to get in touch with the others and definitely stay under the radar until the trial date.

No Death and a Funeral

Sooo
Went to the twi’leks non funeral to collect our bounty and apparently this team can’t do anything with out making a scene.

Took forever to find the stupid butler who tried to turn the tables on us. And officials showed up. I mostly stayed out of the way. Going to stay out of the way and see how it goes.

Arrest at a funeral

We’re on Naboo for Asudam and Ardana’s “funeral”, and to pick up a few odds and ends. Oh, nothing big. Things like a new ship, disguise kits, cloaks, and other black market items. And to meet with my contact. The man who contracted us to kill the fabulously wealthy Ni’ete twins. The Butler.

I’ve never seen a facility so decked out. I’ve seen military installations that were less guarded for the “Funeral of the Century”. Security, armed escort droids, prototype bioscanners with an identity mod. You’d think Padme Amedala herself was going to rise from the dead!

I broke in to the complex largely with the help of Phoenix Knite and “Zaza” Faselli. Knite is force sensitive to boot. But he’s not the only one. I’ve discovered that I’m force sensitive too. I guess the grief from losing Prenom to Star Bucks has unlocked something in me. Thank the Score Keeper!

So we’re in the Ni’ete complex. We use Ardana’s intel on her home to negotiate the tunnels, air ducts, and secret passages. I’m looking for the butler. These clowns are looking for petty creds and jewels. Sith’s Blood! I’m here to collect on the deception of the decade, and these guys are picking up coppers and chips. I broke off from them and Ardana when they tripped the alarm trying to break into the Ni’ete family safe.

So I find that Huttspawn butler with the crew at my back. Phoenix and Zaza stay outside to watch the door, while Ardana and I roll up on him in disguise. You should have seen his face when I revealed myself… no, not in that way. Then he starts with the fast talk and I have enough. Instead of having him scream for help, I escort him out to the crowd of mourners with Ardana in disguise in tow. He makes his speech about how I killed the Ni’ete twins, and then Ardana removes her disguise.

Now the security is justified!

Ardana tells her parents that she and Asudam are alive and well. She also tells them that the butler contracted me to kill her. I play the holorecoding of the butler’s request. The authorities arrested me, but the parents started to believe me. Then I pushed with the force. I insisted on my innocence and demanded to have the charges dropped. The police accommodated and were taking me to the precinct for my statement. We went outside…

And there were starships. The starships blotted out the sun.

The Funeral

Here’s what happened today…
Finally we stopped but we are on planet Nabu. I hate this police over run place but the bars are nice why am I on this damn ship there’s this awesome event going on and I’m waiting for this mind controller to bring me a thermal cloak hurry up man!. Finally the event….wait there’s a guest list ah my ughh..and security seriously I have a lot of shit including a disguise kit oooh yeah beeches…and this butler is here…and there’s all this work…well deception…(I like it though)..To get the rest of these crew members in…oh this is the funeral and I had to go literally try to find that damn butler I looked everywhere and cannot fucking find him (hmm I curse too much) these damn nobles and dignitaries questioning me the funeral took forever…I’m being watched all through the service I know I better get my money for all this bullshit lost my fucking ship and all this dumb ass shit for a contract really…Gaaah! Hmm the foliage was really nice I think I like the color pi…no never mind…oh for the love of unaliving this choir was not a good idea at all.
I’m going to unal…kill this guy when I find him I swear…
Then this guy seriously just turned himself in and got the butler caught I guess jail is better than dead in his eyes not mine. Whatever…now he got taken in for questioning really okay his ass not mine…he figured out someway to get free…but we all have another problem…leaving.

Click …. Click …. Click ….

Even though I haven’t touched the –assassins-rifle in what seems like eons, just… thinking, imagining, feeling, the bolt action, cycling the rifle in my mind … steadies, relaxes, calms me. I will find a way to bypass this. My father and mother didn’t have such a primitive weapon or notion, why must I?

Click …. Click …. Click ….

I have accomplished my contract helping Danika Lux find Jabra Rothgar . Then a goal of necessity, finding a way off of that backwater planet she crash landed us on.
dagobah.png
Now I find myself a member of this group, … crafty although a bit clumsy, cunning yet awkward, and very sly though miss guided.

Click …. Click …. Click ….

Our mission or rather Jabra Rothgar’s mission brings us to Naboo. Interesting to inherit a man’s debt you don’t know, and then to traverse the galaxy in the pursuit of repaying said debt. But back to the subject at hand Naboo; a … beautiful, lush, gorgeous planet rich in its history may inadvertently become the next victim of this group.
Naboo.png

Click …. Click …. Click ….

spatioport-theed-naboo.jpg
We make port thanks to the crafty lies of CT-S1 (PC) . Even then we are stopped by a routine check. Though security is lax getting in without a bribe or force may prove to be much harder than anticipated. As expected we are stopped by customs. The official obviously just doing his job, it would be a shame to kill an honest man. Naboo_Security_Guard.jpg
So we come up with an idea. Only 3 of us in this crew can go unnoticed, “The law of 3” prevails. Unfortunately only 2 of us fine the fortitude to venture out. Or only 2 of us are stupid enough to venture out. I am not sure which is true yet. Time will tell the Force wil tell. So the droid CT-S1 and I step out to meet this problem. Danika Lux (PC) the smartest or the coward of the bunch, stays back and allows us to do the dirty work. Negotiations go south, seems she is the intelligent one. I have begun to put my trust in CT-S1, but just like all things with this group that fails. How did I find myself being at the mercy of a droid with a glitch. The force presses against my consciousness, this is a feeling only felt when another user is manipulating. Someone near me is obviously in touch. Surprisingly its Jabra Rothgar . Interesting I didn’t think he would be a Brother. But now things make sense. The officer is no match for the force and we are saved at least momentarily.

Click …. Click …. Click ….

They have me in the market searching for disguise kits and camo cloaks. Imagine it a Phoenix Knite turned errand boy, disgraceful. Whatever works I guess, and I am all about results, and I am the only one who can carry out this mission. Not all is lost or so I thought, I stumble upon the black market. tumblr_mjyj54osUk1r6amdjo1_1280.jpg
Though that’s not entirely right, I search out and find the black market. After hours of careful negotiations, things go only as they can go… the entire underground arrested or at least what I know of the underground on naboo. All before my negotiations are carried out such a MONUMENTL WASTE OF TIME, and I get blamed for it.

Click …. Click …. Click ….

I accomplish my mission and we suit up, disguises across the board. Apparently the butler that asked to have Jabra Rothgar kill Asudam Ni’ete and Ardana Ni’ete is going to give the eulogy at their funeral dignitaries and their rituals. I am curious though how does a butler gain the right to give the eulogy at the funeral of the family with the most prestige on Naboo. Must be one hell of a Butler

Click …. Click …. Click ….

So we arrive Jabra Rothgar and Elizabeth “Zaza” Faselli make up our party. We arrive confident only to find they have … “Bio Scanners” …, really bio scanners. So, we have very well done disguises only to be foiled by these … We manage to find our way into the complex beautiful as it is though.
Naboo-TheedGrandPlaza.jpg
The service entrance is always a week point. This is no different, and guarded by a half sleep guard whom Jabra Rothgar puts into a coma. All we needed was his keycard. A coma is a bit excessive. Nonetheless we grab it. I figure that I drop my disguise and use my knowledge of the force in full effect moving us to the top floor.

Click …. Click …. Click ….

Finally a bit of action to be had, money to be made. We meet up with Ardana Ni’ete who opens the door to her parents room, and then cracks the safe, 7000 in jewels is not a bad haul. She and I bargain 50/50, 3500 for a day’s work now that’s commendable. Much, much more could have been acquired if not for Jabra Rothgar time table. How do I find myself bound by another’s responsibility with not the power to impose my own will over myself and my desires? Disgraceful, and not a seamless mastery of myself and my environment, this will not do for my trial.

Click …. Click …. Click ….

Jabra Rothgar finds HIS butler and somehow makes a grand speech that exonerates him of his charges, at least while on Naboo. The force is a powerful thing, touching another’s mind imposing your will is a very dangerous thing to do. The dark side is always so tempting. This power is not always effective there are those who cannot be swayed, seems Naboo’s nobility is not among that group. I manage to slip away Jabra Rothgar’s ruse is his own no need to get involved only to condemn us both. Anonymity is a wonderful thing when it can be maintained. That and someone has to do something with these jewels, why not me

Holo-Log 2

When I became a bounty hunter I never thought acting would be involved.

Some money getting scheme. Stage twi’leks’ death and get monies.

This whole fiasco was quite elaborate. Armor to cushion the shots, Refashioning blasters. I must give it to this group, they are quite handy.

But then some one else crash lands here… a human! I think this godforsaken planet should have a warning sign; don’t even bother landing. You will crash . So that human joins our party… And now we are ragtag group with two ships. Oh joy!

So now we are on our way to Naboo I believe. This should be a fun little journey… oh and Starbucks now has Prenom in their fold. I almost regret getting involved.

Breaking News

“Ok! OK! I admit we might have lost them until Naboo, however my family have recover a related news cast that could have assisted them in plotting their next steps…”

*The Old Bathan brings out and old Holo-recording of a past news reel. On it you see an attractive, professionally dressed female Twi’lek and Bith sitting in a chair with papers in their hands staring forward *

Female Twi’lek: “Greetings Galaxy, this is your favorite news personality…”
Female Bith: …she means personalities. (said below her breath)figured you didn’t know how to count…"
Female Twi’lek: “Of course, personalities. I am the beautiful Oola Y’nal.”
Female Bith: “And I am the intelligent Forta Minival.”
Both in Unison: “Here to show you the Universe!”
Female Twi’lek: “Top story today, Mega Corporation Star Bucks has gone through great length to save a random child in what the company’s PR department has dubbed Saving Other’s Spawn…”
Female Bith: “… or S.O.S for those of us here that can not put those letters together.”
Female Twi’lek: “True e-Nerf Forta… I mean enough. True enough.”
*The female Bith looks at her co-anchor with disdain *
Female Twi’lek: “Though it is unclear why this particular child, who’s name is Prenon, has been chosen, one things has always been certain. Star Bucks never does anything without a purpose. But whatever the purpose is the Galaxy has never been more on board with saving the life of this one particularly cute little girl. Almost makes you wish it was possible for you to have children eh Ms. Minival.”
*The Twi’lek laughs *
Female Bith: "As ‘practiced’ as you are Ms. Y’nal, I am quite surprised by the lack of a queue in your pants. And speaking of coupling. The couple Zatan and Lilix Ni’ete, respected nobles of the planet of Naboo, are scheduled to be holding the funeral of their two adopted twi’lek daughters Ardana and Asudam. Though the event is private, the couple is rumored to be pulling out all the stop for their daughters send off into the afterlife. Besides the festivities, security is planned to be extra tight all around the compound, to ensure the safety of the dignitaries rumored to be attending this event.

Though details are sketchy on the exact circumstances of their deaths informants have revealed that the Imperial terrorists responsible for the Massacre of Sluis Van are involved. According to Authorities be on the lookout for a Trandoshan named Jabra Rothgar and Wookie, Pyronkuse. Do not approach as both are armed and extremely dangerous. A droid, who was later identified as designation CT-S1, was seen piloting their escape is also wanted for questioning."
Female Twi’lek: “In other news. Will Yorta be alone forever? The answer? Yes.”

*The Bith slugs the Twi’lek in the face as a fight ensues before the holo-recording ends *

“What do you mean is there more to the recording? We got the information we needed. Who would want to see two women fighting on the galactic news?”
