Rise of the Legend 14: The Walking Dead (Part 2) . . Infected cruiser, immediately after the events in the Rise of the Legend 13.
-- Log of Michel Kringe --
"The everywhere. No matter how fast we kill them more appear. Its a never ending wave, where we go, they follow."
"We've been trying to get to the hangar, trying to get our ships and blow the place up from the outside. But the dead know that if we get back to our ships then they lose a meal. And the dead are hungry."

Harash Soru: "They seem to have stopped, for now."
Michel Kringe: "Just regrouping, they're getting smarter."
Harash Soru: "Yes... Unless. Master can you feel something. I sense a great deal of anger, and fear."
Michel Kringe: "Yes, yes I sense it to. This way, come!"
Deep in the vaults of the cruiser, Altria Skyner stands facing a ring of dead creatures.
Altria Skyner: "Back! Get back!"
Altria waved his lightsaber frantically, desperate to keep the zombies at bay. As he spoke his voice wavered and tears stung his proud eyes.
Altria Skyner: "I said get... Argh!!"
The zombies suddenly charge Altria, swamping him and knocking him to the floor.
One of the dead opened its mouth, its jaw flopping down to reveal brown teeth and a black tongue.
Altria Skyner: "No! No leave me alone!"
Suddenly a green lightsaber speared the creature's head, causing it to explode in a shower of blood.
The zombies spun around in anger as Hara and Michel charged in, hacking through the pale dead skin of the walking dead.
As the Jedi fought through the dead, Altria pushed himself to his feet.
Altria Skyner: "Soru! This is your doing! Master Mard sent me here to investigate and I see you raising the dead!"
Harash Soru: "Me?! Skyner come to your senses! Your Master is behind this! He sent you here to die!"
Skyner's lip began to quiver, he then dropped to the floor and began to cry.
Hara glanced at Michel before slowly approaching the Apprentice.
Harash Soru: "It's ok Altria. This is the way of the Dark Side. I knew you would learn it some day."
Altria Skyner: "I want to be rid of it. Of the anger and the hate."
Harash Soru: "Then join us Altria. You are lost completely."
Hara helped Altria to his feet.
Altria Skyner: "Even after everything I have done, the Jedi will accept me?"
Michel Kringe: "One must fight through layers of darkness before the true light begins to shine clearly. Together we can escape this ship. And together, we can save you from the dark."
Altria sniffed and nodded.
Altria Skyner: "I want to be a Jedi."
Harash Soru: "Then we warmly accept you into our Order."
Michel Kringe: "Now come, the dead are moving and so should we."
The Jedi burst into the corridor and charged towards the hangar. Slowly the dead began to gather at their heels, moaning their hunger pains down the hallway.
They broke into the hangar and ground to a hault.
Harash Soru: "Sith spit!"
The hangar was filled with the dead. All of them standing still and staring at the Jedi.
Michel Kringe: "Retreat!"
They spun around to face the hangar doors to find more zombies fighting to get through.
Altria Skyner: "No escape! We're done for."
Michel Kringe: "Then we take as many of them with us. Now..."
Michel was suddenly cut off as a green lightsaber impaled one of the dead creatures.
The zombie moaned before slumping forward as the lightsaber retreated from its gut.
Suddenly, a Nautolan and a human rushed in and began to hack at the ranks of the dead.
Harash Soru: "Kit!"
Kit Fisto: "Greetings Hara! Master Rohan and I thought you might need some help!"
Michel Kringe: "Well since you're here..."
The Jedi turned to face the zombies in the hallway.
Rohan Ab'lov: "Filthy scum. Is this really th company you keep Master Soru?"
Kit Fisto: "Ah yes, congratulations Hara! I have not seen you since you were Knighted!"
Harash Soru: "Nor you Kit. Congratulations on your Knighthood to."
Rohan Ab'lov: "Yes yes, your successes are grand. However this is not the time!"
Michel Kringe: "I must agree with Rohan. Back away slowly and lets get out of here."
Kit Fisto: "Come Hara, its time to go home."
The Jedi Temple, shortly after the return of the Jedi.
Michel Kringe: "I am very proud of you Hara. You have faced a greater darkness than most of the Masters. And not only did you defeat it but you also turned one back to the Light."
Harash Soru: "I am only doing by duty Master. And now it is time for me to do another."
Michel Kringe: "Oh?"
Harash Soru: "Master, I am going to take a Padawan."
Michel Kringe: "You think you are ready."
Harash Soru: "Definitely."
Michel smiled and placed a hand on his friend's shoulder.
Michel Kringe: "Well then Hara. I wish you all the luck that Force can provide..."
