Rally to the Mand’alor

The following is a speech from the RP.

*the light in front of him indicating that the holo is active began to glow a bright green, Boss looked around at his men on the bridge as he began to speak* Vode, I must report some terrible news to all of you. *pauses* It is with great sadness that I say that our leader Corden Maximus, Mand’alor te Tal’yc, was killed in combat. He was shot by pirates on an unnamed planet while trying to find a cure for his illness; an illness which very few people knew of to keep rumors from spreading around the fleet and to the enemy. It was a fatal disease that affects very few people. *pauses* He was ambushed by pirates. Pirates who had no reason to fire upon him. I suspect that they did not know who it was until he was killed. He has left me his ships, the Haate vi Jorso’ran and the Chakaar. Because of this, I am now assuming the role of Mand’alor. It is not with happiness I accept this role but I do it to make his dying wish come true. This is where I address the crews of those ships. If you wish to leave, I will not punish you. I understand that you followed his word and not mine. I, however, would be glad to have you all serve by my side for I will not let his death go in vain. *he slams the vibroblade into the floor, making sure the head on top is showing in the holo* This is what happens to traitors who defy us. Who fight us. We will show no mercy. We will take care of these hut’uune and we will eliminate these fools permanently. I plead to all who are listening to await my orders to attack the Kyr’tsad. They have Corden’s body. We will get him back and give him a proper burial. *he gives a final pause and holds up the vibroblade, exclaiming* Ke nu’jurkadir sha Mando’ade! *gives the cue to shut the holo off*

See you again soon, ner vode.

The sun was setting on a peaceful say on Manda’yaim, filling the sky with brilliant oranges, reds, and even pinks. Some would say that this was what life should be like, but most of us knew better. We knew that life as a child of Mandalore was far from peaceful and we all know that our times will come. Sadly, the time for two of our dearest members of our aliit had come.

Sev, Scorch, Corden, Tracyn and I stood away from the funeral pyres as they burned brightly. They had been built just the day before after a long process of getting the details just right. None of us wanted anything less for Fixer and Vau’buir and they would have done the same for us. They had given their all and then some to protect us, love us, and be there for us. It was our time to pay our respects to our fallen vode.

Not gone, merely marching far away.

This may be true but it sure feels like they’re gone. Fixer after being shot and Vau’buir dying of natural causes… I looked over at Sev and Scorch, standing next to each other, holding each other’s hands. I couldn’t help but give a crack of a smile at this sight. They were truly happy with each other and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Vau’buir seemed happy with them and gave them his blessing as well, something I will always be grateful for.

Holding Tracyn’s hand in mine, I feel safe. I feel like the world is not ending because we lost two vode. I feel like there is something worth living for and that’s with her and my vode. The war has been costly but the outcome will be great.

Corden, being the heroic Mand’alor, is directing his attention to the pyres. The occasional tear falls down his cheek but that happened to all of us during this ceremony.

As the sun disappeared below the horizon, so did the bodies of our beloved. The fires would continue for days but that out of our control. We had to head back to our ships to prepare for the next day’s festivities, whatever those may be. The beskar’gam was already onboard but we did not know what piece we would take for our own as per Mandalorian tradition.

We boarded our ship and began the trip back home. The sun had set on the day but our adventure and our lives were still very much alive.

Ne shab’rud’ni… Don’t Mess With Me

I’ve never been so thankful for tall trees in my life. Aside from keeping things relatively dark during the day, they’ve helped me keep my approach stealthy as I went to the Trandoshan camp. The part of the world I’m on is usually warm so the trees don’t lose leaves very often. No leaves on the ground means no unnecessary noise which means an easier approach to the camp.

I cleaned out camp and buried the supplies since I figured I’m not going to need them. It’s not going to take much to just get in, get Sev, and get out. The only supplies I have on me is a blaster, a couple additional clips of ammo, a stun grenade, and a cloak to wear. Unfortunately, not an invisibility cloak. Just something to help blend in.

The camp is getting brighter now and I can start to see shadows moving. A hundred meters away from the camp and I can hear the voices of the Trandos. Or at least, that’s what I think I’m hearing. There are five… Six huts that are built out of what looks like burlap and wood. Primitive, to say the least, but my guess is these guys don’t like to stick around in one place for long. Can’t say I blame them.

Wait… Is that… Sev?

He just saw me. Our eyes met and he… Smiled.

Frak, Sev… I’m so glad to see him… Wait, why is he panick—–

Alone

There’s this Earth holiday going on today called “Valentine’s Day.” Apparently it’s where you proclaim your love for… Well, those you love and buy them chocolates and rock their world, if applicable.

*chuckles*

As I sit here in my makeshift camp, I can’t help but think back to those that I love. They’re hopefully safe and sound on Tynnara. I want nothing more than for them to be safe.

To Kalei: My son, I’m sorry I have not been around for you much lately… I’ve just been… Preoccupied. I’ll make time once we get back from here. I promise. I love you so much and I’m very proud of you.

To Shara: You’re the one who opened my eyes to what love can be about. I’ve seen it and even felt it before I came to NavKor, but I never really understood what it can truly be about. You’ve been there for me all these times, even when we didn’t see eye-to-eye on these things. You still opened your arms for me when I needed you and for that I am forever grateful.

To Blue: I appreciate all you’ve done for me. You’ve been a great friend and a great lover and I hope there’s more of both once I get back. I do hope you find true happiness one day. Until then, you have a friend you can talk to when you need.

To Scorch: Vod, I’m glad you’re back. You’ll always be in my heart. You showed me what compassion could do and I’m glad we’re brothers and served together. Our bond is strong and I hope it never fades away. I hope you’re safe wherever you are. We have… Things to catch up on.

And finally, to Sev: I can see you from the hillside. You may have gotten older as I have, but I have a feeling you’re still the Sev I know and love. I’ll make sure that you’re rescued soon. I’m just waiting for the right moment to spring into action. Vode an, Sev.

*pauses*

Frak it, I’m coming for you now.

I’m going in…

Undercover

The maglev ride to the settlement was… A pain in the ass. Took two and a half days due to inclement weather that suddenly appeared out of nowhere. You’d think we’d be able to overcome such minute details in life such as the weather with this technology. But no… I blame the Trandos.

I met up with another of my source’s friends… And they keep getting less friendly each time. This guy demanded 10,000 creds up front in addition to the 50 grand he’s getting from my source.

Di’kut.

This crude camp that I’ve had to set up near the outpost protects me from the elements but… That’s about it. Surrounded by trees that are damn near as tall as the ones on Kashyyyk, the ground is muddy… Yeah, just like old times.

Come on, Sev. Show some sign you’re here. Just a sign.

…………….there he is.

Moving Ahead

After two days of settling on the planet and getting used to my surroundings, I’ve been moved again. I finally made contact with one of the sources and after several thousands of credits being handed away… I know where Sev is.

It’s clear on the other side of the planet and the only way to get there is via the maglev system. It will take a day or two to get there and then… Who knows how long it will take to search out the place where Sev is being held. All I know is that it’s hidden away in a rough place of town… Like all the bastards’ hideouts.

Apparently my source has a few connections inside the hideout and he’ll help me along the way. It’s going to take a few more credits but at this point, I don’t give a frakking damn.

I am still having a hard time resisting the urge to kill any Trandoshan that I see. They all remind me of the ones back on Kashyyyk and my desire to slaughter them increases more and more every day. They’ll be lucky if I don’t kill the entire settlement when I find Sev and bust him out of there.

The sun is starting to set… The maglev train is steadily moving along and lulling me to sleep… But I can’t sleep. Not until… I….

Blending In

Everywhere I go I’m reminded of that frakking awful mission on Kashyyyk. An outsider is rare on Trandosha so I stick out like a sore thumb. I’ve put on a generic cloak to help hide my form and shed most of my armor. However, it’s hard to obscure the figure of a clone from the public, especially the warriors like the Trandoshans.

Every time I see a Trandoshan, I tense. I’m afraid that they’ll see my face and remember me simply as a clone that they were fighting against during the war. My blaster pistol is concealed and ready to go at a moments notice. I don’t have my helmet or its systems to help me out when I’m under attack so my instincts will have to do for now. It’s been a while since I’ve needed to use pure instincts. Sure to be a workout.

Getting Sev back will be difficult, to say the least. I have yet to meet with my sources. Unfortunately, these meetings won’t happen until later… How much later, I’m not sure. He demanded many credits and I’m willing to oblige… Unfortunately, I feel that this will turn out to be more than just credits. Whatever the cost, I’m willing to do it. Getting Sev back is my goal and I won’t stop until I do.

*sighs*

I do miss being back on the Liberty, though. The familiar surroundings and people who I know and care for. I hope they are all doing alright… I hope my son is doing alright. I would contact them but… I am out of comm range. This is killing me but… I have to deal with it in order to keep quiet while searching.

Blending in is a bitch.
