PostSubject: It's a Trap!   Tue Apr 05, 2016 3:03 pm

It was a rare occasion for Darth Sauranis to leave his Imperial warship, one of the largest in the fleet, as he was required to stay here with a team of tacticians to maintain communication on the battlefield, and to bark orders that those beneath him did not have the authority on. Today however, was different. Awhile back his agents informed him that the Republic had taken one of his men hostage, a high-ranking soldier who simply knew too much information for Sauranis to leave him in Republic hands. Though a soldier who allows himself to be captured was not a very useful one at all, in Sauranis's eyes.

He left his chambers once he was ready, and began heading down the corridor, towards the ship hangar. His right hand, an agent who he prized for her tactical skills and her ability to remain informed of the sway of battle, came to meet him.

"Greetings your grace." she gave a bow as she stood before him, as he expected from her, and after giving her a curt nod, they continued along at a brisk pace, "All the preparations have been made, we have a ship waiting a full security squad at your command."

Sauranis folded his hands together behind him and smiled, "That won't be necessary, I have already picked out my ship, and my escort. I trust that Lord Eovras has returned from his mission by now?"

"Yes, your grace, he arrived just this morning."

"Excellent. Have him and his ship ready for take off immediately."

The agent's eyes widened, and she stepped in front of Sauranis to give another bow, "Of course, I'll have him ready by the time you arrive." She then rushed off as Darth Sauranis continued at his leisurely pace. He expected Lord Eovras to be waiting for him by the time he got there, he would waste no time in starting this mission.

“What is that infernal beeping?”

Eovras lifted his head from the pillow, his eyes unwillingly opening. The shrill call of some machine or other echoed throughout the room and into his brain like spikes. The readout on the projection against the wall told him it had been less than an hour since he had finally collapsed into bed and fallen asleep.

“The holoterminal....” Beside him Maeveen mumbled and pulled another pillow over her head, trying to block out the sound. They were both exhausted; their mission on Belsavis had been rough, and they had only returned this morning. They needed rest, time to recuperate from the fighting they had been through. It seemed that was too much to ask for, though.

With a grunt of effort, Eovras pushed himself out of bed and stomped into the main chamber of his ship. The holoterminal flickered as he pressed the answer call button and soon the image of a familiar face appeared.                      

“Agent Rosmia,” he said, none too happy. Rosmia was Darth Sauranis' pet agent and never the bearer of good news. If she was hailing him it meant his chances of getting any time to relax were slim to none. “If this isn't something galaxy threatening I'm going to-”

“Darth Sauranis is on his way to your ship, my lord.” She interrupted, paying no heed to his threats. “He has need of it and of your presence. I'd say you have five minutes, sir.”

Without so much as a thank you, Eovras clicked off the holoterminal and hurried back to his room. Five minutes? What could Sauranis possibly want on his ship in five minutes? The Sith rarely left his own ship, and when he did it was usually in the company of a troop of soldiers to be used as fodder. When his leader needed him Eovras went to him, not the other way around.

He hastily dressed in the darkened bedroom, internally complaining the whole time. While it was an honor to be chosen by Sauranis there had to be plenty of other soldiers around to help him who hadn't just gotten back from the field.

“Are we leaving again?” Maeveen's voice cut through his thoughts and he walked back to the bed where she was still laying.

“No rest for the wicked.” He smiled at her sleepy expression and kissed her cheek. “Sauranis is boarding the ship. Of course his agent didn't explain why; I doubt he will either.” He returned to pulling on his armor, just in case he needed it. “Perhaps you should stay in here for now.  I'd rather not lose you to one his whims.”

“Just try not to die, ok?”

He finished strapping on his cloak and made it to the airlock door just as Darth Sauranis rounded the corner and came into view. He looked as calm as always, though Eovras knew beneath it raged a calculated deadliness.

“My lord,” he said, bowing slightly. He was certain he looked worse for wear compared to his lord's pristine appearance. There were likely bags under his eyes and a still healing wound or two visible. Eovras didn't care. If Sauranis expected him to look his best he shouldn't have given him no notice of his arrival.

“The ship is ready to depart at your command.” He motioned towards the inside of the ship, letting Sauranis enter before he followed.

Darth Sauranis reached the main ship hangar at a brisk pace, wasting no time to reach Lord Eovras's ship. He couldn't leave the Republic soldiers to wait, after all, before they got any ideas about killing their hostage or moving their ship away from its reported location.

As Sauranis reached the ship, he was pleased to see Eovras waiting for him, already suited up for the venture. "Lord Eovras, "He took no pause as he walked in through the air lock door, passing Eovras on the way in, "Excellent. Time is of the essence."

Sauranis took notice in Eo's worse for wear appearance, but made no comment of it. Perhaps it was an overestimation on Sauranis's part, but he believed Eovras could handle the mission Saur had in store, despite any wounds that might have weakened him in the last mission.

Sauranis led the way to the helm of the ship as if he owned the place, and then sat beside the navigation console, as Eovras would be piloting the ship, not himself. He took a glance at the holo-projection of the galaxy and pointed at an empty bit of space between Republic space and the Outer Rim, "Chart a course here, (pretend Saur said some really specific coordinates)."

Eovras silently followed Sauranis to the ship's bridge, knowing better than to ask any questions. Answers wouldn't change the situation anyway; best just to keep quiet for now. He thought briefly of Maeveen asleep mere rooms away and hurried his pace to walk beside Sauranis, if only to keep the attention on himself.

Once at the navigation console Eovras plotted a course for the coordinates given and eased the ship into hyperdrive. The flight would take some time, though luckily not so long that he would lose another nights sleep.

As they travelled he fought the urge to fidget in his seat. His muscles ached and his mind was foggy from lack of sleep, making no position comfortable and no thought one hundred percent clear. He dared not show his weakness to Sauranis. The darth lord wouldn't so much as make a passing comment on it but instead press him harder yet, just to show that weakness would not be tolerated, even if the lesson ended with Eovras's life.

After what seemed an unbearable span of silence he finally could take it no longer. He stood, stretching out his thick limbs with a surprising grace. This was his ship, damn it. He could move about it as he pleased.

“My lord,” he started, waking Sauranis from whatever reverie he was in. “We should be arriving at your coordinates in a few minutes. If there is anything to prepare I'd do it now.”

Eovras took the time to readjust the light saber at his side, thumbing the scratches and catches on its hilt. Sauranis still had not said a word about what their mission was, but Eovras doubted he would have taken him if it didn't involve some type of bloodshed. He would be ready for it when it came.

When he was satisfied he was prepared for whatever was coming, Eovras took his seat at the ship's controls again. As they phased out of hyperdrive he sucked in a breath of surprise. Looming directly in front of them was a warship class Republic starship, its weapons locking onto his small ship within seconds.

Eovras grinned, suddenly feeling more awake. “Am I here to take down an entire warship single handedly?”

As the silence grew between the two Sith, Darth Sauranis studied the galaxy map like it was an intricate puzzle, whilst the ship was thrown into hyperspace. He was very calm in the face of what was to come, after all, Lord Eovras had a reputation for taking on hoards of enemies all at once. This would be easier than that- after all, the enemies were unaware that they were coming, and it was so soon after his captain had been captured it would surely come as a surprise to the republic soldiers on the ship. To find that Imperial Intelligence already knew of it, and of their location, well, it was certainly unexpected on their part.

When they came out of hyperdrive, the Republic warship stood proudly before them. He smirked as Eovras sat up in his chair, eager it seemed. "Of course you are, but let's not spoil the surprise." Even though Sauranis was amused by this, it never showed in the dull tone of his voice, which, as always, remained monotone and void of any emotion- like metal scraping against stone.

A few moments later, a holocall came in, and Darth Sauranis took the liberty of answering it himself. A man in a well decorated uniform was on the other line, "I am Commander Warren, and you are approaching a warship of the Galactic Republic. Turn back now, or you will be eliminated."

Darth Sauranis stood from his chair, taking a moment before responding, "Yes, well, this is Darth Sauranis, Commander of the Outer Rim Imperial Fleet . I am here to negotiate for one of my soldiers you have recently taken into custody."

Commander Warren paused a bit, stunned by this news, "How did you-?... Very well. Enter Hangar B." And then the call cut out and the their attention was redirected to a nearby Hangar as its force field disengaged. Sauranis gave Eovras a curt nod, gesturing towards the hangar.

"I imagine they'll think they can ambush us as soon as we walk out, so I suggest you have your saber ready. Let's take this ship."

The ships com buzzed and before Eovras had time to reach for it Saurnis had answered it himself. He listened to the voice on the other end start off stern then stutter as...fear crept into the line.

So they were here to rescue one of their soldiers. One man hardly called for a rescue mission. It was unlike Sauranis to risk so much in order to gain so little. There had to be more behind what they were doing. A ploy to take over the ship and show the Republic their strength, maybe? But why do it with so few men?

Eovras shook his head, letting it go. He had long ago stopped questioning Sauranis's plans. The man had a hell of a mind behind that blank expression, and the way it turned and raced was far beyond Eo's comprehension. If he thought the best way to take a Republic ship was to go in just the two of them then the best was to take a Republic ship was to go in just the two of them.

As the ship's wheels extended and it landed in the hanger Eovras made his way to the exit hatch. He rolled his shoulders back, flexed his hands before gripping his saber hilt. He was still somewhat tired from his previous mission and little rest, but the promise of action just on the other side of the door was enough to focus him.  He could handle whatever they threw at him – it was only one ship, after all.

The hatch released and stairs clicked into place, offering him a way down. Standing around the hanger bay were no less than a dozen armed Republic soldiers, eyes all on Eovras as he exited the safety of the ship. The air was heavy with tension, each man and woman waiting for their leader's orders.

Eovras didn't wait for the first shot to be fired. He knew it was coming; it always did. Instead he rushed the rest of the way out of the ship, bypassing the stairs altogether in one tremendous leap. He landed, saber smashing into the durasteel floor, yards away in the midst of the soldiers. A wave of Force threw those closest to him into the air, their weapons scattering across the hanger. He rose from the crouch he landed in and towered above those struggling to their feet around him. Already his saber was brandished, and by the time the first republic soldier managed to fire his blaster Eovras had sliced through his middle.

The next few minutes were full of flashes of blaster fire and the unmistakable arc of Eo's blood red lightsaber. He grunted as shots hit him, some burning through to his skin and searing his flesh. They bothered him no more than the sting of a fly. He was an unstoppable force, tearing through the Republic men like paper.

When the last one fell the hanger was silent but for the hum of ambient tech. Eo rubbed the sweat from his brow and turned towards the ship, spotting Sauranis standing idly at the top of the stairs. He could have helped. But no, maybe it was better that he knew he could count on Eo to take care of things. If Eo did his job well it meant less worry that Sauranis would take action against him, in his own quiet way.

“All clear, my lord.”
