ROYAL PALACE, COMMENCE
853 ABY - THE IMPERIAL CIVIL WAR
It was a quiet night at the Commenori palace, serene and undisturbed. Guards of both the Systems Alliance and formerly of the Imperial Guard patrolled the grounds and worked to maintain this peacefulness, vigilant against threats seen and unseen. But they were not quick enough to prevent a man, frail in his appearance, from infiltrating the stately home without pause.
He sat in the chambers of one [member="Lady Kay"], resting comfortably in a puffy armchair that may or may not have been there before, silently reading a holonovel as he waited for his quarry to arrive to end the day and sleep away her troubles, how monstrous they may be. His upper body was cast in shadow, the only part of him caught in the dim light being his legs, which were adorned with a fine pair of dress slacks and below that, onyx shoes.
While he was not sitting in front of the entrance to the chamber, he would most certainly be noticed shortly afterwards should his target be aware of her surroundings. He would have chosen her office as a suitable spot, but given the secretive nature of the conversation that needed to be had, and the likelihood of her not being alone, he had abstained and chose his current approach...
But for now, he waited.
