Saviours 04: Rescue . . Jabiim, one week after the events in Conquest 04: Rising Force
Jedi Knight Alex Stones winced as the chemicals surged through his bloodstream, sending his muscles into a painful spasm.
Darth Dreer: "Poor little Jedi. After all the times we have fought you are finally mine. You will suffer before the end."
Alex Stones: "I will tell you nothing Sith!"
Darth Dreer: "Oh I don't want anything from you. I am just here to make your final moments as painful as possible."
The Bothan turned to the armored man standing beside the life-support system.
Darth Dreer: "Darth Crandor, how is he doing?"
Darth Crandor: "The toxins are taking effect. He has one hour before the antidote must be given for him to live."
Darth Dreer: "Then I shall see you in one hour Stones."
As the two Sith went to leave Alex called out after them.
Alex Stones: "You haven't one yet Dreer. My friends will come for me, and you."
Darth Dreer: "Let them come! This fortress will destroy them as it has you!"
On a rocky hill over looking th fortress, four figures made their way out of the undergrowth and surveyed the building before them.
Kav Dashav: "Alex is there alright. I can feel him."
Jyuoi Polohk: "Master Ulick? Your instructions?"
The Harch Jedi regarded Ulick carefully.
Kav Dashav: "Slow down Jyuoi! Don't do anything... Harch."
Jyuoi rolled his many eyes at the play on words from his fellow Jedi.
Jyuoi Polohk: "Very funny Kav. Not as though I haven't heard that one before."
Paski Tomala: "If we're done with the bad jokes can we please get this mission done with?"
Ulick Bentoa, Jedi Knight and leader of the rescue mission, nodded at the Aqualish Jedi.
Ulick Bentoa: "Agreed. Let's get Alex home."
A young Sith Acolyte slowly patrolled the high walls to the fortress when suddenly, a heavy chain sailed over the wall.
The girl gasped in surprise, barely managing to draw her lightsaber as Paski Tomala jumped swiftly over the wall, engaging her in a fierce lightsaber duel.
For a brief moment, the Acolyte held her ground, but soon Paski began to force her back.
Ulick Bentoa: "Need a hand?"
Paski grunted as he nimbly cut the young girl down.
Paski Tomala: "No, I'm good thanks."
The other Jedi flipped quickly over the wall, their lightsabers held at the ready.
Jyuoi Polohk: "Which way?"
Kav Dashav: "Main hall, lets go!"
Sirens began to blast out within the fortress and ALex smiled weakly.
Alex Stones: "Impenetrable fortress you said?"
Darth Dreer: "Crandor, deal with it!"
Darth Crandor: "With pleasure."
The main hallhad turned into a riot. Acolytes swarmed through the doors only to be met by the swirling blades of the four rescuers.
Jyuoi Polohk: "Acolytes?! Is this all they can manage these days?"
The room fell silent as a man in golden armour walked in.
Darth Crandor: "You will find that we can manage so much more."
Paski Tomala: "Ulick, you and Jyuoi go get Alex, we'll deal with this!"
Darth Crandor: "You will regret sending your friends away!"
Without warning the Sith leapt up onto the table, punching Kav in the face whilst crashing his blade down upon Paski's.
Kav groaned as he struggled to his feet.
Kav Dashav: "Well that went well."
Darth Dreer spun around as the door burst open to reveal Ulick and Jyuoi.
Darth Dreer: "Jedi! You think you can walk in here, kill my Acolytes, steal..."
Dreer was cut off as he was thrown backwards by a Force push from Ulick.
Ulick Bentoa: "Get ALex! I'll hold off Dreer!"
Jyuoi Polohk: "He needs medical attention!"
Ulick Bentoa: "Well give it to him!"
Jyuoi gritted his teeth as he jabbed Alex's arm with the antidote.
Jyuoi Polohk: "I've got him!"
As the Jedi fell back Ulick raised his comlink.
Ulick Bentoa: "We've got him, pull out!"
Kav watched as Paski barely managed to dodge an attack from Crandor.
Kav Dashav: "Not a moment to soon Master Bentoa! Paski, come on!"
The Jedi bundled into the hangar, Ulick stopping at the doorway.
Ulick Bentoa: "Go, get away! I'll hold them here!"
Darth Dreer: "Brave Jedi. But why throw your life away so pointlessly?"
There was a roar of an engine as Paski appeared behind Ulick.
Ulick Bentoa: "I had no intention of throwing my life away. You see, we Jedi look out for each other."
Crandor and Dreer watched as the five Jedi vanished from sight on the stolen speeders.
Darth Crandor: "You failed Dreer. Stones still lives."
Darth Dreer: "It matters not. The hunt is only just beginning."
Prakith, two days later.
Starkiller: "What are you trying to say?"
Darth Algren: "You are being used, all three of you."
Darth Ignatious: "Ircune and Quetus' experiments were only trials. You are being tested and once the tests end you will be exterminated."
TX-008's hand fell to his lightsaber.
Darth Feelix: "TX is right. We are not lab rats!"
Darth Algren: "Then show the Lords that you are powerful! The Temple is yours, kill Sith, prove your worth!"
The two Sith Lords grinned as the trio of Clones marched away, their hands on their lightsabers.
Darth Algren: "They didn't even ask why,"
Darth Ignatious: "They are clones, foolish and insignificant beings. We don't need them but they might take some Sith with them."
Darth Algren chuckled.
Darth ALgren: "Agreed, my friend. The plan is going well."
