Coruscant, three days after the events in A Galaxy Divided 1.
Harash Soru walked quickly down the long corridor of the Jedi Temple beside Mace Windu.
Mace Windu: "Are you eager to meet your troops Hara?"
Harash Soru: "Am I eager to meet the men I will face hell with?"
Mace Windu: "Yes I suppose there is that."
Hara looked at Mace.
Harash Soru: "Why was I not simply assigned a unit like the other Jedi?"
Mace Windu: "Your situation is different Hara. Due to your abilities we have decided to place you in overall command of an experimental legion."
Hara stopped dead.
Harash Soru: "A Legion? As in an entire army?"
Mace Windu: "Yes, you will assume the title High Jedi General and be tasked with highly important special operations."
Harash Soru: "High Jedi General is a rank reserved for Council Members only."
Mace Windu: "We are extending that rank to you, we need your skills Hara."
Harash Soru: "I, I don't know what to say."
Mace Windu: "Just lead your men well. And the Jedi that follow you."
They walked into the hangar to find five Clones stood around. One stood separately from the rest.
Mace Windu: "The four stood together, they're a crack team of Commandoes. Played a very important role on Geonosis."
Harash Soru: "And the other one?"
Mace Windu: "An experimental Trooper, the Kaminoans call him an ARC Trooper, he's a Commander. He's more intelligent and independent than even the Commandoes, reports from Geonosis say he's a loyal and brave soldier. But he's also rude, merciless and generally disobedient."
Harash Soru: "Sounds like a good guy then."
They walked forward and Mace barked an order.
Mace Windu: "Troopers!"
The troops snapped into a line and saluted Mace.
Mace Windu: "You have been brought here today because on Geonosis your prooved that you are the best. It is therefore only fitting that you be led by the best."
Mace placed a hand on Hara's shoulder.
Mace Windu: "This is the best. I'd like to introduce High Jedi General Harash Soru."
Harash Soru: "Its a pleasure troopers."
Once more the troopers saluted the Jedi. The Commander however, made no movement.
Mace Windu: "Commander. Did you not here me?"
Commander: "I did Sir. Only, I do not agree with you."
Mace arched an eyebrow.
Commander: "You said we were to be led by the best. All reports would indicate you or Master Yoda are the best, Sir."
Mace Windu: "General Soru is one best Jedi around, you will follow his orders to the let and show him complete obediance. Do I make myself clear?"
Commander: "Inescapably, Sir."
Mace WIndu: "Good, you are dismissed."
Mace turned around and muttered to Hara.
Mace Windu: "If he gives you any trouble then ship him back to Kamino."
Harash Soru: "Oh I have no doubt. I'm sure we'll be firm friends..."
Hara looked back to see the Commandoes stood around awkwardly. The COmmander had left the room.
Harash Soru: "He's a barrel of laughs isn't he?"
Clones: "Yes Sir!"
Harash Soru: "Oh come on, you don't have to be so formal. Do you have names?"
The Clone in red armor shifted his feet and nodded.
Heavy: "The names Heavy Sir. The guy in yellow is Dax, Nat's in green and Scurry has the winter camoflage."
Harash Soru: "It's good to meet you all. Please, enough of the Sir though."
Scurry: "Yes General!"
Harash Soru: "Hmm, I see there's no winning here."
A few days later Hara reappeared before the Commandoes.
Harash Soru: "Where's the Commander?"
Dax: "Isn't coming General."
Hara shook his head slowly.
Harash Soru: "Hmm, fair enough. Well I was going to introduce some of the Jedi who will be attached to the 77th Airbourne. This is Rohan Ab'lov, Ricky SO and Noah Dentirii. Master So will be supplying us with intelligence whilst the other two will help to lead from the fornt."
The Clone's quickly snapped off a salute to the Jedi.
Scurry: "Forgive me General, but we still don't have an Admiral."
Harash Soru: "Don't worry Scurry. I've had a word with top and arranged for something special."
Harash Soru led John Vandarr through the maze of corridors in Clone Barracks and out onto a balcony.
Harash Soru: "I'm glad you could make it John."
John Vandarr: "Well yeah, I told you I would if you need me. So what is it you want? You need a smuggler, a bodyguard?"
Hara shook his head before indicating the large Venator-class Star Destroyer resting in its birth.
