The unforeseen Threat: Ch 07 – Return From the Dagobah System

As Tenaz sped through hyperspace he noticed the light on the comm. link blinking. He pressed a button on the panel and the device came to life. A hologram of Captain Torigac, an Imperial Agent within the order, now stood before him.

“Darth Tenaz, I hope your mission was a success. I come to you with some unfortunate news however. There has been an incident with Darth Neeru. It seems that on his last mission, he and his team were ambushed by a republic fleet, with the aid of Mandalorian warriors. The team, along with Darth Neeru have all been listed as K.I.A. Darth Vandin has requested that you return to the academy immediately so that he can speak with you.” – End Transmission.

“Master Neeru… dead? This isn’t possible.” Tenaz slammed a fist down in rage, destroying the comm. unit. “I would have felt something in the force if he was killed. Neeru is too cunning to have been killed. If anyone could find a way out of a bad situation, it was him. Where did you go Master? Maybe someone at the academy could tell me the mission location.” Reaching to activate the comm. Tenaz realized he had bashed it in his rage, rendering it completely useless. “Looks like I’ll have to return to the academy now.”

* * * * *

Tenaz walked through the halls of the academy towards his master’s quarters. As he looked inside he saw what he was expecting, but not what he had hoped for, Neeru was not there. Entering the room he could tell Neeru hadn’t been in for a while. Tenaz went to the center of the room and sat down. He began to meditate, focusing on any glimmer of his master’s presence.

Tenaz was surprised when he was able to quickly find his master. Finding him alive wasn’t what had surprised Tenaz, but rather that he had found his master so quickly. Tenaz focused harder and suddenly he could see himself meditating on his master’s floor, and a faint hum he was all too familiar with could be heard. Tenaz now knew what was going on.

The unforeseen Threat: Ch 06- The Pallarbeck Part IV

Tenaz could feel the dark side flowing through him again, he was still unable to move his body, but he knew that didn’t mean he was completely vulnerable any more for he had his most fearsome weapon back – his mind. As he focused on the force, drawing on the dark side energies all around him, it seemed as though Sparzz had begun to ramble on in slow motion. Tenaz reached out with his mind and lifted his lightsaber up off the ground. He positioned the hilt to the side of Sparzz, just out of the man’s sight.

Sparzz finally stopped rambling and pulled his blade back for the kill. Just as Sparzz was sending his blade back towards Tenaz’s throat, Tenaz spun his saber in the air, and ignited it halfway through the flip. The blade ignited just in time to cut Sparzz’s arms clear off, stopping the man’s knife from penetrating Tenaz’s throat.

“Ahhh!” Sparzz shouted out as his forearms dropped from the rest of his body. The large man fell to the floor, burying his arms into his body. The man’s pain and suffering empowered Tenaz, and he could begin to feel parts of his body again.

Turning his fingers in, he began to make fists and then release them. As he continued to draw on the dark side, Tenaz felt more parts of his body quickly coming back to life. White-knuckling his fists, he summoned up Sparzz’s immense pain, and channeled it into power.

Using his new power source, Tenaz catapulted himself up out of the circuit board prison. As he landed on his feet he staggered for a moment, but then caught his balance as the biometric weapon’s effects wore off.

“That’s quite the toy Sparzz,” Sparzz continued to weep in pain on the floor, “but no weapon is significant next to the power of the dark side.” In the upper corner of his eye, Tenaz could see a red blink coming from one of the computer stations. Looking up, Tenaz could see it was the sign of an incoming video comm. message.

“Dam. The command panel. The communications jam must have been deactivated with the explosion down there.” Pondering whether to leave it or not, he felt as though something was compelling him to answer. “Why don’t you just stay right here General.” Sparzz simply continued to bury his arms in pain.

Tenaz walked over to the station and could see the image of a women dressed in beige Mandalorian armor on the comm. screen. She wore the Mandalorian skull on her shoulder, unlike Sparzz’s people who wore it across their chests, so Tenaz was unsure how to approach the situation. If she was a member of the NMO, then by revealing himself to her, he could expose the entire order to the public eye. If she was a true Mandalorian however, then perhaps Sparzz had come here to hunt her and her clan down, just as he had done to Tenaz.

The woman’s helmet was removed and Tenaz could clearly see her face. The mysterious woman had long brown hair that dropped far past her shoulders. Her lips were plump with a peachy tint to them. Her face seemed to have not one battle scar; she looked as though she was more of a Diathim of Iego rather than a human. All this beauty was complimented by her deep green eyes – eyes that had surely helped her bend people to her will.

As beautiful as the woman was, she wore a face that displayed her integrity. Tenaz could see her talking into the comm., but could hear nothing. Feeling as though she was not in league with Sparzz and the NMO, he reached over to the flashing light, and opened the comm. channel.

“Sparzz! I know that’s your ship! Sparzz! Dammit Sparzz, don’t do this!” The woman shouted into her comm. until the image of Tenaz appeared on screen.

“The General is a little…preoccupied right now,” Tenaz responded.

“Preoccupied?! You tell that ugly piece of wampa feces to come down here like a man!”

“I’m sorry miss, but I don’t think the general will be able to join you.” Tenaz grabbed the comm. camera and positioned it over to Sparzz. “Like I said, he’s a little preoccupied.” Continue reading
