PostSubject: Rise of the dead: The revival of project Star-scream   Tue Nov 18, 2008 3:05 am

Chapter 1 - A new weapon

Rohke was lying in her room on her bed, she was thinking of her plans involving project Star-scream. She sat up and proceeded to the laboratory area that Eternum had offered to Rohke. It was a chamber containing many failed cloned bodies. She looked around at them pondering, if she could utilise the research previously done perhaps she could make use of these clones. With that thought she then walked down to the far end of the laboratory.

She had been engineering a new weapon for some time and it just needed the finishing touches. The new weapon design was designed to mimic the movements of what could be done with a rope dart or meteor hammer. However the rope was replaced with a lightsaber resistant metal chain and instead of a metal dart on the end there was a small tiny lightsaber like dart. The light dart could be activated by a button near the far end of the chain and the whole weapon could be coiled up to secure neatly onto a belt. All that was left for this weapon was to add the crystal, the crystal was smaller, Rohke placed it gently in place with the force, and she started making most things using her force powers as she felt it trained accuracy with the force.

She took her new Chain light dart and hooked it on her belt. Rohke then left the laboratory and entered one of the many training rooms. These rooms were big open spaces with various training items and objects. This would be the first time she would practice with the new weapon. She unhooked the chain off her belt and began swinging it around picking up momentum before turning on the lightdart at the end. The dart worked and a all that could be seen was a purple light being swung around attached to a blur in a circular motion. Rohke began moving around elegantly like a dance, she jumped up into the air and threw the dart out in a forward motion, similar to that of her sword but at a much longer reach. She danced around the room not stopping the momentum of the chain light dart. It created an almost shield like aura around Rohke and would be effective at keeping enemies at distance. The downside was that it was severely weak against blasters but she had her fans for that. She then came to a halt and relaxed the chain fell to the floor and she disengaged the dart.

Rohke then walked up to a lever an pressed it several targets popped up out of the floor and out of the walls. The targets were made out of a weak metal so that lightsabers could easily pass through them but they were still strong enough to survive punishment. Rohke walked back into the centre of the room looking at the targets. There were 10 in total surrounding her, she started once more gaining momentum by swinging the chain and moving in a dance like motion spinning and occasionally leaping. She attacked the first target with a simple thrust forward sending the chain light dart spiralling in a straight line towards the target, the light dart pierced the metal and then she retracted the dart sending it back into a spin. She did this for several of the targets including one high up on the wall while standing in the centre of the room and only moving around slightly. She then made one huge arc swing which cut through the remaining targets before stopping once more.
Rohke returned to her room sat on her bed a moment, she was about to leave for Kiva the planet that gave birth to this dream Rohke has. Her dream of making the dead useful once more by completing and perfecting other peoples research. This was going to be a long journey, a journey that would take Rohke on many adventures in pursuit of something that was not certain to be successful. She got dressed into something more suited to her adventure, and packed a few more items of clothing as she did not know how long she would be on Kiva. She was just about to leave when a Noghri entered her room. The Noghri walked up to Rohke and then spoke.

“I am sorry to interrupt you my lady, Are you leaving? And should I report this to lord Eternum?” This Noghri was assigned to be Rohkes personal assistant, however Rohke always thought it may have been Eternum idea so that he could keep an eye on her. However Rohke nodded to the Noghri, it was best Eternum knew she was heading to Kiva to start her quest to bring the dead back to life.

Rohke headed to the docking bay and the Noghri headed to Eternum. Rohke arrived at the docking bay. Her ship had been prepared earlier by some of the other Noghri. She quickly boarded the ship and sat at the cockpit. This was another day when she would have to pilot a ship something she still was not used to. However it was necessary to travel from place to place in private. Along with herself she took several of her scout droids, a protocol droid and an astromech. She was not about to travel on a long journey without being fully prepared for the worse. She also took several weapons including blasters, explosives and her old sword, but she still had her lightfans and new Chain light dart. She ignited the engines and retracted the landing gear, the ship rumbled as it prepared for takeoff. The roof of the docking bay opened and Rohke slowly manoeuvred the ship upwards and out of the docking bay before quickly zooming off out of the atmosphere and into the darkness that was space.

Rohke knew the journey to Kiva would be a long one and switched the auto pilot on and awaited the signal that she was approaching Kiva.

Chapter 2 – The lost planet Kiva

Rohke was asleep on her ship when suddenly a voice spoke. “Approaching Kiva, preparing to land at selected co-ordinates” the voice was cold and computerised.

Rohke slowly got up and slipped into the cockpit seat, as she prepared everything for landing although there was little to do as it was all automatic. She just had to make sure everything went smoothly. This was her first trip back to Kiva since she battled it out with Salias, this trip would no doubt bring back strong emotions and memories. The ship proceeded to land in exactly the same place it landed the previous visit. To no surprise the planet was still as dead as it was last time, Rohke let out a sigh and pressed the button to exit the ship. The ramp slowly lowered and Rohke stepped out looking around the still barren landscape.

Rohke needed to head to one of the main science buildings which was not too far away. However Rohke first wanted to visit the cave that was the venue for her epic battle she had with Salias. She started walking in the direction of the cave. The memories of that day went through her mind so clearly but in reverse. Her memories started with Eden, he had helped her heal. She then remembered her desperate crawl through the barren wastes with dust flying at her almost blinding her vision. These memories were painful and it was not a comfortable walk back up to the cave. Rohke then arrived at the cave the small hole still remained from which she climbed out after ending Salias. She gently crawled through the opening and proceeded into the cave, it was dark so she used the force to see more clearly. She proceeded up the cave seeing numerous broken stalactites and that is when she saw her. Salias’s body was rotting away and was merely bone with some fleshy bits still holding the skeleton together. Rohke kneeled in front of the skeleton she stayed silent a while before speaking “I am sorry” Rohke wiped a tear from her eye and stood back up. She then noticed a shimmer, it was Salias’s lightsaber, She took the lightsaber she would keep this as a trophy and more importantly a memory. Rohke then left the cave leaving salias’s for good but she would forever remain in Rohke’s memories. The light blinded Rohke temporarily after leaving the dark cave environment. She now headed to one of the main science labs in the area in hope of finding more clues about the projects being done under Project Starscream.

Rohke arrived at her destination, the building looked a wreck and she was unsure if she would find any working equipment or computer data. However she had to find something otherwise her plan would be a complete failure. Rohke entered the building which had a dark and twisted feel about it, she proceeded slowly not knowing what would be ahead. She came to a door but the door was sealed shut and the switches were not responding. She ignited her lightfan and began to carve her way through the door, it was a slow and tough process but the door when cut through fell with a loud bang on the solid metal floor. Rohke entered a laboratory filled with many bacta tanks, that contained bodies. There were also several bodies with augmented cybernetic limbs and they were much larger than your average human.

Rohke carried on she needed to find one of the researchers quarters which would most likely have the data she needed. She came to an elevator shaft that went downwards; unfortunately the elevators were not working. Rohke had an idea though, she pulled out her chain light dart and swung it up latching it onto a metal beam she then used the chain to climb down enough so she could reach the floor below and then retracted her chain light dart. This was it the floor that contained the researchers quaters, she entered one of the rooms that were still mostly intact. To her surprise the computer did indeed still work. She watched the screen but it asked her for a password, she quickly hacked into the system so she could retrieve hopefully some useful information. There were numerous logs made by this particular scientist which were quite interesting. Rohke listened to the logs, she did not want to spend too long on Kiva though.

Day 1. Its my first day on the science team here on Kiva, I’m quite nervous but I hope to do my bit in successfully completing the study. However nobody has filled me in one what we are doing here perhaps I will find out soo.
Day 2. Today was a horrifying day, we received our first shipment of reanimated bodies from Necropolis. However one of the bodies was out of control, seems the control mechanism failed. I am really not sure if i want to involved in raising the dead and making super soldiers out of them.
Day 3. Today is the day we place the new bodies in the augmentation chambers, they recieve various supplements to augment their strength, toughness and speed. I just hope things work out as some of the bodies were showing odd signs.
Day 4. Its just as I feared some of the bodies had reacted badly to the augmentation therapy. They became monsters and mutated. A couple broke out and killed one of the researchers, we have no idea where they went.
Day 5 We have began seeing strange eggs around the complex, we are unsure what they are but we have a suspicion that the mutants reproduced somehow.


That was the last log, Rohke thought for a moment she now knew Necropolis was involved and that Kiva was the base for creating the super soldiers. Rohke took a copy of the data and quickly left the facility the way she came out. She then boarded the ship and took off heading back to Drummond Kaas.

Chapter 3: Chemistry on Drumond Kaas

Rohke had returned to Drumond Kaas, she was greeted by her personal Noghri who followed her to her laboratory. Well it was Eternums old cloning chamber but it was offered to Rohke so it may as well be hers. She sat at her desk and placed a data disc into the computer, it contained the formula used to augment the bodies so they would become super strong and agile, and unlike the weak corpses they once were. She also uploaded the various cybernetic engineering data she had collected. All this data would go towards ensuring that any corpse she resurrects would be strong and not weak. She turned to her Noghri assistant,

“Some of these ingredients can be obtained easily enough, ill have you do this simple task for me” Rohke passed the Noghri the ingredient list for the augmentation concoction.

Rohke turned her attention to the Cybernetic enhancements, these were quite complex but could be extremely useful. These would require skilled engineering to recreate such enhancements for the corpses. They ranged from, arms to legs to even partial torso and head. Cybernetics were common use in the medical field so perhaps Rohke could even enquire to some doctor about such engineering feat.

Rohke had become so attatched and interested in her work she almost forgot to make a report of her findings for Eternum. Whether he would be able to read it or not now was a different matter, in fact he may not even remember. Still Rohke had said she would forward any progress onto Eternum, Before he transformed, Eternum had been interested in Rohkes plans but it was unsure whether he still had that interest.

Rohke stood up and wandered out of the lab, she then approached Edens room. She had strong feelings for Eden but was unsure whether Eden was even capable of such feelings. Still she entered his room, without even giving any indication she was entering. Eden was knelt meditating, meditation was important to keep the mind focused on the force and the goal ahead. She sat on the side of his bed watching him, admiring him as he meditated silently. He could probably sense her, but she did not mind. He finished his meditation and stood up, he then turned and looked at Rohke and was quite surprised. Rohke simply smiled at him, he smiled back but it seemed a bit forced. It was obvious these two had some sort of chemistry and it was just a chain reaction waiting to go off. Rohke stood up and walked up to eden, she looked at him a moment and then quickly and quite cheekily gave him quite a passionate kiss before leaving his room quite quickly. She was off again, this time to Necropolis.

Chapter 4: Planet of the dead: Necropolis

Rohke was working hard to try and understand what the process was and key to bringing the dead back to life. She had hope of finding far more answers on the planet Necropolis which was a city that was once used to bury the dead. However her findings on Kiva pointed out that it was this world that the bringing back of the dead was happening. Her ship landed on this graveyard planet with a thud, the planet did once have a small population that lived upon it so a starport was available. Rohke stepped out onto the open starport, she looked around to the find the planet was very much like Kiva apart from the masses of gravestones and tombs. This definitely seemed like a great place to look for experiments to do with the dead. She could see a large building to the north of the mass graves so she figured she would start there.

Rohke proceeded up to the field of tombs, the entire planet had the stench of death and decay. As she came closer to the building she noticed a large number of the graves had been disturbed, this was a good sign she would find some solid clues. She entered the building and walked into the science lab, there was a few dug up corpses lying around that obviously did not receive the gift of life. She quickly went to one of the computer terminals that were still in prime condition despite not receiving maintenance for some time. She began listening to the logs that were similar to that on Kiva but relevant to the matters here.

Log 1: We have just sent another shipment to Kiva, although we had to fit one of the subjects with an old prototype of the control device.

This was not what Rohke was looking for she closed the log frustrated and looked again and then found a log section that was hidden. This one was actually a video log so Rohke listened and watched.

The key to life: This is it *manic laughter*, the Jewel of the Dead. This is the key to life. Quickly now quickly out of my way. *The head scientist pushed his way through holding a Jewel. He then placed it within some sort of capsule.* hmm now is the time for the dead to live *He flicked a switch and a beam of energy shot out from a laser gun like machine onto a dead corpse.* It lives! *more manic laughter*

Just then the screen went all fuzzy it seemed the log had not recorded properly. Still it had given Rohke vital information into how to raise the dead. The jewel was key and Rohke knew that it was probably a dark side artifact. Rohke looked around the room for any sign of the jewel but there was none to be found. She looked on the computer again for the most recent logs surely they would have the answer. She found another log but dated as the most recent.

They have gone mad, we can no longer control them, I have been advised to give the Jewel for transportation to a safe place.

Rohke then realised that it was not a log but a transmission to Coruscant. This made things even more interesting. Rohke began to download the data for herself when she was suddenly approached by a person. Although this was no ordinary person it was a walking corpse, slow and hungry, it grabbed Rohke. Rohke reacted with a push and then kicked it in the head, the head of the corpse fell off. She then looked at the exits they were swarmed by the walking dead, they were hungry for flesh and blood. Rohke took out her Chain light dart and began spinning it and swinging it at the undead, It pierced the bodies of a number of the undead knocking them down. However they rose again, She then thrusted the dart forward in a straight line piercing the heads of 5 of the corpses dropping them dead. Rohke then smiled coiling up her Chain light dart and igniting her light fans. She then proceeded to dance around clearing the room. The undead were far too slow and no match for Rohke who simply danced around them lopping off their heads. Her download completed and she ran for the exit, she sprinted for the starport but then the ground began to shake suddenly.

Rohke fell to the ground unable to stay standing, and the earth began to crack. A huge hole appeared and a huge monsterous Rancor crawled out. This Rancor was not like other Rancors for it was undead. It made a loud roar at Rohke who was still on the floor knocked over from the rumbling earth. She was not quick enough and the Rancor picked her up in its huge hand. Fortunately she had her lightfans and just before she was about to be eaten she stabbed the Rancor in the eyes blinding it and causing it to drop Rohke. She then fled and hid behind a Rock she was unsure what to do, the Rancor was huge and monstrous and could probably still use other senses. She then had a plan she tied her chain light dart to a tall tree, its roots probably went deep she then grabbed onto the other end which was rather crazy considering the strength difference but Rohke was confident the force would allow this. She prepared herself setting the trap for the Rancor which was slowly making its way over to the chain. The Rancors legs got caught in the chain but started pulling Rohke away, Rohke turned up the speed and started trying to run backwards although she did not move the speed was enough to keep the chain in place, toppling the Rancor over but almost setting Rohkes boots on fire. Rohke then lept high up in the air with her Chain light dart, time seemed to slow down allowing Rohke to execute the perfect move. She shouted loudly as she ignited her chain light dart and shot it out forward towards the Rancors head piercing its skull and straight through the brain, killing it in an instant. Rohke then did a few flips in the air before landing, she was quite pleased with herself and then left the planet heading back to Drummond Kaas.

Chapter 5 - A science of love

Rohke landed back home on Drummond Kaas, to her suprise she was greeted by Eden. She ran down the landing ramp and threw her arms around him. She was happy to see him, and Eden obviously felt the same, otherwise surely he would not have come. Rohke and Eden kissed once more but this time it was mutual passion. Rohke let go of Eden and told him she needed to go to the lab and that she would see him later.

Rohke arrived at her lab and instantly got to work. She had found out several things on how to resurrect corpses to be used as soldiers. She knew she had to somehow obtain some expensive and difficult to acquire equipment in order to allow this jewel of the dead to do its magic. The Jewel of the Dead was also something that Rohke would have difficulty obtaining, she had no idea where it was taken. However she did have a lead to Coruscant and that would be a place she would need to visit. First she decided she would get a message to Jaxx on Anaxes which would be difficult due to her past history on Anaxes. She would travel to Tattoine to hire a courier, this seemed the best way to get a message to Jaxx to acquire the equipment and smuggle it out of Anaxes.

Rohke left the science lab and went straight to Eden’s room, she walked in but could not see Eden. However Eden grabbed her from behind pinning her arms down and kissing her passionately. He then pushed her on the bed in which they enjoyed each other’s company.
The day went on and Rohke woke up, Eden was nowhere in sight. He obviously did not sleep much, Rohke felt her wrists gently, they were sore from the earlier activities. Rohke did not mind being tied down. After all she was now accepting that Eden was by far higher rank than her. She stood up got dressed and headed out she needed to set off to Tattoine right away and did so without telling Eden.

Chapter 6 - Getting a message to Anaxes

Rohke landed in Mos Eisley. Her mission was simply to get a pilot to send a message to Anaxes. Specifically to Jaxx Gallows. Rohke walked through the dusty streets being harassed by the local merchants selling their filth. It was quite noisy and quite busy but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Mos Eisley was better known for being a place for pilots and general scum so it was perfect.

Just then Rohke heard a man calling for help. He was surrounded by three men but Rohke kept her distance. The men proceeded to pummel the poor man beating him in the torso and then took his pouch of money. The head of the group clipped the pouch on the side of his belt and walked off with the other men. They walked down the dusty street quite pleased with themselves. Coming the opposite way was a simple looking man he wore basic robes and had a oriental looking straw hat to protect from the sun. He also carried a fairly impressive oriental sword similar to a katana. As he passed the thugs Rohke noticed he swiped the pouch and then walked up to the poor man giving back what was rightfully his. The head thug noticed and approached this mysterious simple man and ordered him to pay up himself. The simple man just stood there watching not saying a thing, which frustrated the thugs. The thugs went to attack but the simple man quickly grabbed his sword and slashed at the Thugs. It looked at first like he had missed and the thugs were quite pleased, however after a while their pants fell to the ground. The thugs ran away instantly pulling their pants, this put a smile on the simple man’s face, he then left the city.

Rohke entered the local cantina. This was one of the most dangerous cantina’s on tattoine, violence was an almost daily occurance. Rohke was to meet a courier who would take a message to Anaxes to Jaxx. She waited at the bar and ordered a few drinks before the courier arrived, the music was decent here but the atmosphere was one to be cautious within. Rohke received a tap on the shoulder it was the courier she was planning to meet.

“Sorry I’m late but you know business is like that” the man said.

This man was odd and Rohke did not fully trust him but he was one of few that would take basic courier jobs.

“I need this message taking to a man named Jaxx Gallows on Anaxes. Can you do that?” Rohke asked

“Sure i can but first you must do something for me” The man smiled as he asked for a favour.

“Go on” Rohke replied

“You see i was out hunting Krayyt Dragons with some hunters, i was carrying some vital equipment when we had to flee out of its lair, unfortunately I dropped my pack out on the dunes while we fled.”

“Fine ill do it, just give me the coordinates.” Rohke did not really want to do this but she had little choice.

Rohke set out to the dunes where the krayyt lair was said to be and the courier’s belongings. Rohke wandered up to the lair and stumbled upon the backpack, she picked it up and strapped it to her back when she suddenly heard a roar. The Dragon came out the lair it was no ordinary dragon this dragon was a fully mature dragon, which had obviously lived for a great many years. Rohke began to flee but the dragon was too fast and span around hitting Rohke with its tail sending her flying into the sand. Rohke began to fade into unconsciousness. The last thing she saw was a reflection of the twin suns.

It was the simple man before who had dealt with the thugs, he had leapt up high in the air with his sword thrusted downwards he let out a shout before piercing the dragons skull with the blade and killing it. He had practically saved Rohke’s life, he walked up to the unconscious Rohke and picked her up carrying her back to his remote cave where he lived.

Rohke awoke in the cave to the smell of cooking, she could hear the crackle of the fire and the clanging of the utensils that the simple man was using against the pot. She was not quite sure what had happened or where she was. She even had little idea of who this man was, so approached him with caution. She walked slowly up to him wondering whether to attack or not, just as she got closer her foot kicked a rock and the man turned around.

“Ahh so you’re awake” The man smiled and approached Rohke

“Stay back!” Rohke insantly sent out a force push but the simple man sent out his own force push. His push was more powerful than Rohkes and it sent her flying into the floor but not too hard. The man then went back to cooking, pouring the contents into another bowl and then walking up to Rohke who was now on the floor.

“Here eat up, you probably need it” He handed Rohke the bowl and Rohke looked at him in suprise.

She was hungry but she was confused as to how he could be so kind to a stranger. She had never experienced anything like this. She took the bowl and quickly began eating, she had no idea how long she had been unconscious, what she did know was that she was hungry.

“Good food yes? It’s my own recipe” The man spoke gently and calmly, his voice was non threatening. It was then that Rohke realised who this man was.

“You’re that man who dealt with them thugs in Mos Esiley right?” Rohke asked

The man just nodded as he ate his own portion of the meal. He finished his food and then introduced himself.

“I suppose you’re wondering what my name is. Well I’m Zeus Reinhart although most just call me the stranger who lives in the cave.” He chuckled

“Why did you not kill them thugs?” Rohke asked confused

Zeus chuckled “Just because I could have killed them, does not make it right.”

Rohke was now even more confused “So you do not kill?”

Zeus sat silently a moment as if he was thinking “I used to, but for 8 years now I have not killed a single man, yet I have resolved numerous conflicts.”

Rohke and Zeus sat silently once more, they did not say much until Rohke decided to ask him about the force.

“You have knowledge of the force, zeus?”

Zeus looked at Rohke confused and unsure. “The force you say? Well if that is what you call it? To be honest you’re the only one I’ve met that can channel their energy to do almost inhuman things.”

Now Rohke understood that this man had no knowledge of the force yet he somehow managed to train himself to be quite powerful in the use of the force. Zeus was quite a remarkable man one Rohke could not easily understand. He was quite mysterious and no doubt had many mysterious to unlock.

Rohke then proceeded to demonstrate her force lightning capabilities. She wanted to show Zeus what he was capable of. She shot out her lightning at the cave walls, the lightning lit up the cave and crackled against the wall. Suddenly she could no longer demonstrate the power, it was as if something was draining her force power.

“Impressive but it is filled with hate and destruction, it is far more impressive to mend wounds, to disable the enemy, rather than completely annihilate them” Zeus said in an understanding tone but he was not impressed by Rohke’s hatful show.

“I am sorry, I did not.... it was not my intention to upset you. I feel corrupt, weak, and dishonourable. I have started on a path into darkness that I cannot seem to stop or control.” Rohke cried

“I understand, it is not always easy. I will help you tomorrow, you will be my student”

Rohke spent several days at the cave, training with Zeus. He taught her how to disable someone’s ability with the force, or at least weaken it. He taught her many defensive powers and healing, including how to paralyse someone with the force.

Rohke spent the night with Zeus on her last day of training, the night was filled with passion and love. Rohke was grateful for his training and enjoyed the night, she led next to him and smiled.

“I must return to where I belong.”

Rohke was thinking of Eternum and more importantly Eden, She also had a job to do and finish the project. Zeus looked at her with sad eyes.

“Do you have to go? Why do you not stay here with me?” He realised she had to go

“Please do return someday”

Rohke nodded, grabbing her things and leaving back to the city. She went straight to the cantina where she met up with the courier giving him his pack. He was pleased and he left instantly, Rohke also left she would head back to Drummond Kaas.

Chapter 7 - A Smuggler named Jaxx

Cheers and grumbles could be heard from a corner of the cantina on Anaxes, the same one Rohke visited not so long ago to find Arachnos. The cantina was noisy and a large crowd could be seen and heard in the far corner. It was Jaxx Gallows a smuggler who was a bit of a weasel at times but the same guy who could help Rohke. He was playing and gambling on a game of Dejarik and surprisingly he was winning, then again it could be expected from a smuggler as they are always using their luck in life. Jaxx was playing against a Bith who was rather wealthy making the stakes high, this was a great chance for Jaxx who was concentrating on which moves to make. Jaxx made a simple looking move but it was actually a trap that he hoped the Bith would fall into. The Bith played right into the trap that Jaxx set and the game was practically won now.

“Ahhhaaa! Thank you” Jaxx was pleased and finished the game as the winner half the crowd cheered and half the crowd grumbled.
“Ok whose next?” Jaxx asked

Suddenly a man appeared, it was the courier that Rohke sent. “ Are you Jaxx Gallows?”

Jaxx cowered and backed off into his seat “I.... I didn’t do anything, honestly”

“Relax I have a delivery for you” The courier handed over the data disk that contained Rohkes message

“Er... thanks then... hmm” Jaxx looked at the data disk confused

“Well shows over guys” Jaxx said to the crowd and they all grumbled in reply. He then proceeded to a quiet area of his own and viewed what was on the data disk. To his surprise it was Rohke who wanted him to smuggle some parts to Tattoine where they would be picked up by a Noghri. The parts looked familiar to Jaxx as they were highly illegal and difficult to get a hold of. However Jaxx owed Rohke a favour and so he decided to do it.

Jaxx contacted some people he knew who would have such parts and said he would meet them round the back of the cantina. Jaxx sat back and had a few drinks waiting for the time to arrive but when the time finally arrived he crept out of the cantina ensuring nobody followed him. He then met a Trandoshan and a Bothan who he had set up to meet to exchange the parts for some spice specifically glitterstim. They made the exchange and then quickly left, Jaxx then headed straight to the Starport with the parts. He approached the main entrance and was stopped by a guard which was not good for Jaxx.

“You know I cannot let you in their Jaxx your on the list of known smugglers” The guard spoke but with a lack of authority.

“Well thats true anyway have you seen that man over there?” Jaxx slipped away and ran to his ship after distracting the guard

“Where? What man? Hmmm?” The guard turned around to find that Jaxx was not there. “Hey!” The guard sent out an alarm signal but Jaxx was already on his ship. He had hoped that his ships code would work and he would escape without being blasted out the sky.

Jaxx ignited his engines and quickly took off escaping the planet, fortunately the codes on his ship worked and he escaped without being blown up. That is of course until several C.I.S fighters appeared and decided to open fire upon the smuggler on the run. Jaxx was a capable pilot and had a few tricks up his sleeve like any good smuggler would. One of the fighters came up behind Jaxx really fast but Jaxx responded by releasing some cargo which smashed into that ship. He was then left with only two fighters which he was confident in dealing with. He turned around his ship and went at them head on and destroying both of them quickly. Suddenly a big battleship appeared and Jaxx was forced to make a hasty retreat. He escaped and landed on tattoine handing over the parts to the Noghri. Unfortunately for Jaxx this repayment towards Rohke had cost him his home on Anaxes but he thought he would start a new life on Tattoine.
