The Future of the Force Chapter Five (Star Wars SWTOR Fan-Fiction)

Talyc sat with Vax in the cantina in Kaas City. They had just finished a game of Deejarik and Talyc had lost miserably. They were sipping some particularly good brandy, but the barkeep wouldn’t tell them where it was from. Talyc wondered if that meant he probably didn’t want to know.
            ‘I’ll expect a rematch,’ said Talyc.
            ‘I didn’t expect you to be so sour at losing a game of Deejarik,’ said Vax.
            ‘Hey, I have a reputation to uphold. I need to win back my score,’ laughed Talyc.
            ‘You’re just looking for an excuse to have a handsome face to look at while you’re pining over your man,’ Vax teased.
            ‘I’m not pining!’
            ‘At least you’re not denying my good looks,’ laughed Vax.
            ‘That would be difficult to do,’ said Talyc. ‘You are after all easy on the eyes.’
            ‘I’m not the only one,’ said Vax.
            Talyc looked at his glass, feeling himself blush. ‘That barkeep has a secret about this brandy and I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.’
            ‘Don’t change the subject, Talyc. Admit it, you’ve enjoyed being by my side.’
            ‘Sure, I’ve had a ball of a time being a semi-captive,’ said Talyc with humoured sarcasm. Vax cocked his brow. ‘In all seriousness, I have enjoyed myself. It’s been like a vacation of sorts. Can’t remember the last time I had one of those. Even if I’m at home doing almost nothing, I’m still the clan leader and always busy with the clan.’
            ‘We make a good team,’ said Vax.
            ‘We’ve always made a good team,’ said Talyc.
            Vax’s comlink chimed and he checked his datapad. ‘The Minister requires to meet with me, and on my day off. I’m afraid I’m going to have to love you and leave you.’ Vax winced, catching himself, Talyc saw. ‘I’m sorry, that’s not the best expression to use, considering.’
            ‘It’s all right,’ said Talyc. ‘I know what you meant.’
            ‘I’m not leaving,’ said Vax.
            ‘Hardly,’ said Talyc, ‘you’re the one in charge of keeping an eye on me.’ Talyc chuckled. ‘Go to your meeting. I’ll be here or about.’
            Vax stood, backing away a bit, then he turned and left more briskly. Talyc finished his drink and then exited the cantina. He looked around Kaas City; it always looked the same. Then he saw a Sith meditation Sphere enter the atmosphere and his heart leapt. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. At last, Lord Void had pulled through and had called upon Shadie and the others to come for him. Talyc hurried to the spaceport.

The Future of the Force Chapter Four (Star Wars SWTOR Fan-Fiction)

Relsor walked along the halls of his ship towards the room where he knew his passion was feeding their son. Even though it had been but mere hours since they were last intimate, he longed to feel the passion she provided him.
            He had met her a number of months after the events on Ziost. Maranna had been among the Followers of Kromus. She had more recently joined the True Sith, having been hunted by the Sith Empire for she was not only Force-sensitive, but she also had a Force defect. It appeared that she was able to absorb powers and abilities directed near her or towards her, but she was unable to reconduct them outwardly; it was all inwards and thus she had been a problem to the Empire, but not to Relsor.
            Their love and passion had been almost immediate, and Maranna was completely unaffected by Relsor’s malady or abilities. When testing his powers, others standing next to her had been ill or had perished, while she had stood unaffected, untouched.
            Relsor had feared, when she announced that she was with child, that their child would die, but it seemed the infant was also unaffected by Relsor’s malady, though he was able to redirect the Force outwardly, and he had shown much potential already in his first year.
            Relsor had been by his passion’s side while she had given birth, and their love and child seemed to give him such strength, he was able to shroud himself in the Force and use it to reach his enemies and attempt to overpower them. His powers allowed him to detect every time Fane and Lian tried to enter his mind, and he cut them off before they were able to find him. He was also able to reach out to Shadie with his malady. If she died, he would be Master of the Crypt again, Lian’s powers would be neutralised, and Fane’s abilities to destroy him would be negated.
            Maranna was human, but their son was Chiss, only a few mild tones lighter than Relsor’s darker blue, and his eyes bright red-magenta, like Relsor’s, but shaped like his mother’s beautiful human eyes.
            Relsor entered the room. ‘My passion,’ he said.
            Maranna stood from her seat, replying in kind. The baby boy was in his cot. Relsor breathed in as she approached. He took her in his arms.
            ‘It seems as though I need you constantly by my side to feel this passion, this power. It is a wonderful sensation,’ he said. She smiled. ‘Do you remember when we met, you were frightened you would disappoint me because of your defect?’
            ‘And instead, I was exactly what you needed me to be,’ she replied.
            ‘Where were you all the years I searched for the passion that fuelled my powers,’ said Relsor, brushing her hair out of her face.
            ‘Too short a time these few years have been, I know, and the time of your destiny approaches, but we must hold hope that you will be victorious and defeat Jedi Fane, that you will survive. And then the galaxy can be ours.’

The Future of the Force Chapter Three (Star Wars SWTOR Fan-Fiction)

The ship entered Hyperspace with no sign of pursuit. Vax breathed out a sigh of relief. Those Jedi had seemingly come out of nowhere, but he didn’t think they knew he had been on-planet.
            He stood from his seat at the controls and went to check on Talyc. He put a hand on the unconscious Mandalorian’s face. He felt warmer and the colour was returning to his skin with some pink on his cheeks. Vax observed him for a few moments. He dared not to think what could have happened had he not found him at Awgro’s mercy. While Vax had known Awgro meant to kill a Mandalorian, he had not known the Mandalorian in question was Talyc. The Sith had also not told him was why he wanted to kill him. At least he knew the prototype energy shield functioned as intended.
            Vax went to the holoterminal and contacted the Minister of Intelligence; he only now realised the Minister had tried to raise him earlier.
            The holoimage of the Minister appeared.
            ‘Minister,’ said Vax.
            ‘Cypher Five, I’m glad you are reporting in. I hope you are no longer on Mandalore. The Sith you were accompanying has gone rogue and is no longer to be trusted, as per orders from the Dark Council.’
            Vax nodded. ‘I saw that. He tried to kill Clan Leader Talyc Kandera. I arrived in time and had the opportunity to test the prototype energy shield. It works. It saved both of us from Awgro.’
            The Minister narrowed his eyes. ‘Now, when you say “both of us,” what exactly do you mean?’
            ‘I mean precisely that,’ replied Vax. ‘I saved Talyc, and now he’s in my care.’
            The Minister stood. ‘You mean to tell me you’ve kidnapped a Mandalorian clan leader?’
            ‘Kidnapped is a very strong word, Minister,’ said Vax. ‘I saved his life!’ Vax put enough emphasis without raising his voice. ‘Awgro was trying to kill him and he is not stopping there. The Jedi and his clan failed to protect him from Awgro who remains on Mandalore; therefore I deemed it best he come with me. He will be better protected on Dromund Kaas.’
            The Minister sighed. ‘Very well. I suppose it is too late to return him now. I hope you know what you’re doing, Cypher Five; technically, that man is our enemy.’
            ‘He doesn’t have to be,’ said Vax.
            ‘I want you to bring him in for questioning as soon as you touch down on Dromund Kaas, and I mean immediately when you arrive.’
            ‘Understood. Cypher out.’

* * *


            A small contingent of guards took Talyc from the med bed and lifted him, carrying him from Vax’s ship; the Mandalorian’s feet dragged on the ground. Vax did not particularly like the idea of Talyc being taken in this way, but he had to follow procedure, given he’d essentially acted out of order.
            When they arrived at the Minister’s office, the tall man sat behind his desk, scowling.
            ‘I hope you know what you’re doing bringing this man here to Dromund Kaas,’ he said.
            ‘You’ve said, yes,’ replied Vax.
            The Minister looked at the guards. ‘Remove his armour. Regular procedures.’
            The guards removed the armour pieces, as others continued to hold Talyc up. Not quite the way Vax would have imagined watching Talyc being stripped of his gear, but he stood watching, hands behind his back, and did not object to the procedures. The guards put the armour, vibroblade and blaster in a crate and tossed it aside.
            ‘You’ll safeguard his things,’ said the Minister.
            ‘Yes. He can stay at my apartment,’ said Vax.
            ‘With a guard outside your door,’ added the Minister. ‘Now search his person for anything that might be hidden: datapads, recording devices, trackers, anything at all.’
            The guards began searching as Talyc started to come to, his head lolling, and his eyes slowly opening. He moaned in discomfort before his eyes went wide and he began wrestling the guards, fighting them as any skilled warrior would. He had one in a lock as another shocked him and punched him in the gut.
            ‘That’s enough!’ Vax called out, stepping between the guards and Talyc, taking hold of Talyc to help him stand. ‘I did not bring him here to be tortured. I brought him here so that the Empire could protect him from that Sith Awgro.’

The Future of the Force Chapter Two (Star Wars SWTOR Fan-Fiction)

Shadie stood holding Knarf’s hand for support as he gave her a bit more strength. Though her healing meditation had helped a great deal, her anticipation to confront Awgro was increasing her anxiety and thus was draining a part of her energy. Fane and Talyc stood by her side, Brenum and Trylia had also come to Mandalore and they stood next to Knarf.
            They watched as Awgro’s ship entered the atmosphere with an escort of Mandalorian fighters. When the ship landed, ysalamiri were placed by the ship’s ramp and around the ship. Awgro walked out of the ship and was surrounded immediately. He raised his hands up and did not fight back as Mandalorians took his weapon from his belt.
            ‘If I had come to fight you, you know I wouldn’t need my lightsaber to do it,’ said Awgro.
            ‘We preferred to take precautions,’ said Shadie, crossing her arms. ‘We’re not entirely sure we can trust you, Awgro.’
            ‘Void, he’s contacted you, hasn’t he?’ said Awgro.
            ‘Bring his things to the Kandera bunker,’ said Talyc. He turned to the other Mandos. ‘Search his ship.’
            Awgro stood silent as Zaereg led a team into the Sith apprentice’s ship.
            ‘You’re not going to find anything of value in there,’ said Awgro.
            ‘Are you working for Relsor?’ Shadie asked, looking him straight in the eyes.
            ‘What? No! He abandoned me on Dromund Kaas because I helped you lot.’
            ‘I’m surprised he didn’t kill you,’ said Brenum.
            ‘Relsor contacted me shortly after the events on Ziost,’ said Awgro, ‘hoping I would aid him in the future.’
            ‘And?’ said Brenum, prompting him to go on.
            ‘I told him exactly what I thought about him and his pitiable True Sith,’ said Awgro. ‘I serve the Sith Empire and the Sith Emperor, no one else.’ He turned to Shadie. ‘You can surely sense I’m telling you the truth. You saved me once and I knew then that I could trust you, despite the fact that we are on opposing factions. As individuals there is no reason why we could not at times aid each other if it was beneficial to both of us.’ He looked at Talyc. ‘You don’t need to wear your helmet in front of me, Clan Leader Talyc. I know who you are, I know what Relsor made you suffer, I aided you when I could, and I aided your friends. I know your authority and your clan’s superiority.’
            There was an arrogant sort of intonation, yet Awgro was voicing compliments while being smug about his past cooperation.
            ‘You think we owe you something,’ said Knarf, voicing Shadie’s very thoughts.
            ‘Yes, and I now come for it.’
            ‘What do you want?’ Shadie asked, taken aback.
            ‘Refuge,’ said Awgro. ‘I’ve come for protection, and Mandalore is a good place outside of Sith Space, not in Republic Space, and not corrupted by the Hutt Cartel. I need your help; I need your protection. Lord Void is trying to kill me, he is hunting me, spying on me, tracking me.’ Shadie could sense that thus far Awgro was speaking the truth. ‘He wants to take over the Crypt.’
            ‘He claims you have your eyes on becoming the Crypt’s new master,’ said Shadie.
            ‘So he has been in contact with you,’ said Awgro conclusively.
            ‘I’ve already got Relsor trying to poison my body through the Force so that he can rebecome the Master of the Crypt, I don’t need someone else trying to take over. I’m fine as its master, thank you very much.’
            ‘Shadie, I’ve not come to kill you, nor to harm the Jedi who is destined to destroy Relsor,’ Awgro said, looking at Fane. ‘I would not benefit from doing so. If I wanted to take over the Crypt, I’d have to undergo all its trials. Lord Void, on the other hand, all he has to do is kill me. I’m sure he’s already achieved most of those trials throughout his lifetime.’
            ‘Do you know what each trial is?’ asked Shadie.
            ‘I would be lying if I said I hadn’t ensured I learnt many of Relsor and Perce’s secrets regarding the place.’ Shadie thought for a moment, letting Awgro’s words sink in. ‘Listen,’ the Sith added, ‘I know Void went and found the Crypt. Why would he go to all that trouble if not to check what the trials were and to ensure he knew exactly what he needed to do in order to claim it?’
