Conquest 03: Loose Ends . . Immediately after the events in Conquest 02: Loyalty .
Darth Vivacious: "I don't care Rovaniss! It is my money that is funding this Empire and I will see it spent properly!"
The Neimoidian slammed his fist down on the desk and turned towards the door. He stopped before leaving.
Darth Vivacious: "When you are ready to stop wasting money on ridiculous exploits I will gladly help. But until then the Empire shall receive nothing from me!"
Rovaniss: "You see the fools that I must deal withm?"
Darth Tremor: "Yes My Lord."
Rovaniss: "Tremor, see to it that Vivacious is put in charge of the mission we discussed."
Rovaniss handed Gerett a document.
Darth Gerett: "What's this?"
Rovaniss: "Vivacious' will. I'm sure you two can make the necessary amendments?"
Darth Lytin: "It will be done, Emperor."
Rovaniss: "Good, everything is going according to plan."
Tython, two days later. The ceremony of the marriage of Dana Kowls and Ordan Minoh.
Harash Soru: "Then by the power invested in me as Grand Master of this Order, I pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss the bride."
Dana and Ordan smiled with joy as they leaned in to kiss, their marriage finally complete. However, before their lips met there was a ground shaking explosion.
As the smoke cleared a trio of Sith led by Vivacious appeared in the centre of the rows of seats.
Darth Vivacious: "Jedi! Your Temple is under attack! I suggest you make some attempt to stop us."
Before anyone could say anything the three Sith vanished into the Temple. reaching out with the Force the Jedi could now sense many more of the Sith Lords infiltrating their home.
There was flash of colour as the Jedi activated their weapons.
Harash Soru: "Boris! Go after the Neimoidian! Goruq, stay here and make sure none of them double back. Everyone else move out!"
Nayam Burl: "Get to the library and comunications rooms! Make sure they don't steal any of our files!"
Council Member Boris Yakerno sped through the Temple, his green blade blazing at his side. He arrived just in time to see Darth Vivacious cutting down a young Padawan.
Darth Vivacious: "Ah Master Yakerno! What a pleasure it is to meet you."
Vivacious whirled around and attacked Boris violently.
Boris Yakerno: "Darth Vivicn isn't it?"
Vivacious grunted as Boris unleashed a flurry of well placed attacks.
Darth Vivacious: "It's Vivacious actually. But I suppose it doesn't matter as I am about to kill you."
Vivacious fired a blast of lightning at Boris who asily deflected the bolt.
Boris Yakerno: "Oh come now Vivacious, if you are so certain that you are going to kill me you'll have to try better than that."
Darth Vivacious: "Indeed!"
Vivacious charged at Boris who merely grinned at the Neimoidian. When he was close enough, Boris reached out and planted his boot in Vivacious' chest, knocking the Sith Lord backwards.
Boris jumped over Vivacious' head, dropping to the walkway below.
Boris Yakerno: "Try to keep up Vivacious!"
The Jedi and Sith landed gracefully on opposite sides of each other.
Darth Vivacious: "You are pathetic Jedi! You stand for nothing!"
Boris simply chuckled.
Boris Yakerno: "Hmm, at least you are a brave Neimoidian. They're quite rare you know."
Darth Vivacious: "Bah! You Jedi think high and mighty yet you walk in the mud like commoners."
Boris Yakerno: "And that is where we are least expected."
Boris suddenly broke out into a run before sliding across the floor. He slammed into Vivacious, knocking the Sith's legs out from under him and sending him up into the air.
Boris Yakerno: "Goodbye Vivacious."
Jumping to his feet, Boris reached out and used the Force to push Vivacious through the archway where he tumbled to the ground below. Boris winced as the Sith Lord hit the floor and became still.
Prakith, the study of Emperor Rovaniss.
Darth Gerett: "We have just received word, all the Sith sent to the Jedi temple have been killed. We lost some good warriors."
Rovaniss: "Think again Darth Gerett. Those Sith were all either weak or posed a threat to the Empire through their incompetance."
Rovaniss smiled as Lytin handed him Vivacious' amended will, noww stating that the Neimoidian had left everything to Rovaniss.
Rovaniss: "Now the Empire is strong again, and we have all that we need to survive and strike down those pathetic Jedi!"
Tython, during the Sith attack on the Jedi Temple.
Despite the reports, not every Sith that went to Tython was killed. Master Goruq Da stood quietly in the reception hall, his lightsaber blazing at his side as he reached out to his friends throughout the Temple.
As it was, Goruq was far to focused on other things to feel the shadowy figure land softly behind him.
Only when the figure slid a needle into Goruq's neck, causing him to slip into a deep sleep did the Jedi Master realise his mistake.
Darth Wraith smiled as the Cathar Jedi Master fell to the ground. Slowly he raised his comlink.
Darth Wraith: "Phase one is complete."
