It had been three days since the Jedi had learnt of the spy hidden within their midst. WIthin those three days the other Jedi had begun to arrive and now finally, the Grand Master himself had landed.
Ames Victur: "Everything is in place Master. Master Morton has taken command of the forward outpost along with Master Flo and the supplies have been equally distributed along our lines."
Harash Soru: "Good. How long until we are ready to fight?"
Dana Kowls: "We will be ready as soon as you give the word Hara. The Jedi know their units and the Masters know their missions."
Behind the Jedi command group, Besalisk Jedi Master Ronto Tell cleared his throat.
Ronto Tell: "Master, someone is coming."
Andrew Parker: "You there! Who are you, you are an unfamiliar face!"
Figure: "Does the Grand Master not remember me? But then again, why should he? I was only a small child when we met."
Hara pushed his way past the two Jedi Knights to face the figure.
Andrew Parker: "Master?"
Harash Soru: "Who are you? I sense the foul stench of the Dark Side on you. Are you our spy?"
The figure laughed as he pushed his jood back and threw his cloak into the wind, activating a single red lightsaber.
Arex Core: "I am so much more than a spy! I am Arex Core, son of Tred Core. The man that you, Harash Soru, murdered in cold blood during the CLone Wars! I am here to see that my father's will will be done! I will kill you!"
Ronto Tell: "You'll have to kill all of us kid!"
Harash Soru: "Wait, Master Tell! Arex's fight is with me alone. I did kill your father Arex, but only because he was laying waste to the galaxy."
Arex Core: "He was still my father. And now you will pay!"
Arex leapt at Soru and swung his blade powerfully towards the Grand Master.
They fell back across the command centre, their blades dancing.
Harash Soru: "Give up Arex! You know you cannot defeat me!"
Arex Core: "Don't lecture me Jedi! My father stood against your whole Order until you butchered him!"
Hara's boot shot up and kicked Arex backwards, sending him sprawling over a wooden chest.
Harash Soru: "Your father prayed on Padawans and young Knights! When he faced fully trained Jedi, he did not survive. Please Arex, I don't want to hurt you."
Arex Core: "And that is why we are so different!"
Arex's hand shot forwards as he launched a metal safe at Soru. The Jedi quickly dodged to one side however and batted the safe away.
But Arex was already planning his next attack. He jumped onto the command centre and tackled Soru, knocking the Jedi off of his feet and sending him smashing into the table.
Hara grunted as he rolled off of the table, bearly avoiding Arex's lightsaber that cut the table in two.
Hara leapt to his feet and threw a pair of books at Arex, the pages sweeping around him like a tornado.
Arex forced his way through the paper trap and charged Soru.
Arex Core: "You are dead Soru! I will see my father's revenge carried out!"
As the two pulled away Hara sighed.
Harash Soru: "I see there will be no saving you Arex. I hope you find peace with your father."
Arex Core: "I will. When you die!"
As Arex charged Hara he appeared completely oblivious to the table that was hovering behind him.
With one powerful swing, the table smashed into Arex, throwing him forwards and pinning him under its crushing wait.
Hara approached Arex and winced at the long piece of splintered wood that protruded from his chest.
Harash Soru: "Be at peace now."
Ames Victur and Dana Kowls approached Hara slowly.
Dana Kowls: "Hara?"
Harash Soru: "Give the Order Dana. Tomorrow, we march to war."
