I Will Find You...

The Reaper of Won Shasot
Character
Images flashed through Dax's mind, an old abandoned monastery, reptilian skin, figures in a dimly lit room, and strangely familiar voices. He couldn't quite put his finger on the distant, distorted voices, but he could hear the desperation in them. An unnerving feeling flooded over him as he approached the figures. They grew in detail, and so the voices grew more distinct, and soon he knew who they belonged too. [member="Kimiko"], Tsubasa, Saya and Oji crying. The Rogue began to run towards the figures but they grew more and more distant.

A loud, frenzied knocking woke Dax, and sprung out of his bed frantically, sabers flying into his hands, orange and yellow blades igniting the darkness. The Rogue's senses returned to him slowly and he realized that no, no one was trying to kill him. A cold sweat had developed on his skin, and his hands shook. Not the product of his sudden, but welcome, awakening, but the disturbing dreams he just had.

The Rogue set his sabers down and grabbed a shirt, pulling it over his head as he answered the door. On the otherside of the door stood Halzyn, looking at Dax with a concerned look on his face, "Sir...you're going to want to see this..."

---

"Five million creditsssss...five million...or you won't sssssee them ever again."

Anger and fear welled up in Dax's chest, so intense it burned. His fists clenched as the bridge around him stood staring, awaiting orders, prepared to chase down the kidnappers. The Rogue closed his eyes and took a deep breath, attempting to calm his mind. "Orders...sir?"

"Maintain our course Captain."
"I'm sorry sir?"
"Maintain your course. You're needed on Utupau...I'll go and get them back myself."
"Marshall..."
"I said maintain your course Captain!" the Reaper cut him off, voice suddenly booming and threatening. Startled Halzyn took a step back, unprepared for the sudden burst of anger. Dax said nothing as he strode off to prepare his gear and his corvette.

Location: Teth

A dark room with a single light within was all Ki would be able to see as she'd come out of her drug induced slumber. Tied to a rickety wooden chair, if she'd look around she wouldn't be able to see her daughter Tsubasa tied up behind her in the same predicament. The two infants on the other hand would be nowhere in sight. Beyond the bleak duracrete walls would lie ysalmiri, denying the Fox access her Force powers...how she would escape? Well that was up to her.

What...where...

"Where...am...I...?" a groggy voice, just woken from a deep sleep.

Hazy eyes scanned her surroundings...pitch black. She tried to reach out and feel anything around her...all that returned was a hazy static sense. Her ears picked up light, but familiar breathing. Just one though...

Panic set in, flooding her system enough to fully wake,"Ts-Tsubasa?! Is that you? Please wake up!" another thought hit her after the outcry: the babies!

Where are they? Frantically now she attempted anything she could to find them. But all she got in return was a sinister chuckle.

Craning her neck in the direction yielded no results. Although a deep voice responded to her, one that sent chills down her spine,"Itsssss nice too sssssee you finally awake. Do not be to alarmed. The little onesssss are being taken care of. We might be thieves and murderers, but harming children isssss not something we do." a pause and a hiss, some sort of reptilian species...yay...she thought,"Our employers will be happy too sssssssee you."

A door opened then slammed shut and it was quiet once again.

Her hands were bound tight to a seat of some sort, that was bolted to the ground. She tried calling out again,"Sweetie? Tsubasa, please wake up. Mama needs to know you're okay...please?" she pleaded, almost to tears when the door opened again and what sounded like more individuals entered the room.

A female voice, cold, spoke this time,"I do hope you have not come to much harm during your trip."

---

Ki is in a pickle. Captured by unknown forces and now being taunted by some faceless female. How will she escape? How will the children be saved? Who knows where she is?

All this and more in the exciting next episode of "Whatever it takes to Find the Fox!"

The Reaper of Won Shasot
Character
The distinctive metallic clack of a rifle chamber loading the next round resounded through the empty cargo hold as Dax donned his gear. With two sabers, a knife, pistol, and rifle, Dax was fully kitted out. He wrapped his head in a black balaclava and donned the grey, skeletal mask that had become synonymous with the name he was known by both his enemies, and those that feared him. As the cargo bay doors opened up, to allow the moonlight wash over him, he truly did look like a grim reaper, come to the battlefields.

The Trandoshans had been dumb enough to tell Dax to bring the ransom to their hideout on Teth. Likely they'd done so out of fear that in anywhere but their home turf he may just kill them instead. One mistake of many that Dax would make sure they paid dearly for.

Athena ran at his side as he quickly, but quietly, approached the monastery. Athena was silent as she communicated with her master, their telepathic connection all they needed. The canine could feel the perimeter of the monastery and counted a total of twelve outer guards. Six patrolled on top of the walls, seven along the outside perimeter, and three at the main gate. What plan of action Dax would take Stealthy or chaotic...he hadn't quite decided yet...but he knew that none of the pirates would live to see the morning light.

"It appears as if our guest has arrived."

---

Alone again, the room black. Tsubasa was still not awake. Kimiko had to do something...her wrists were bound but she tried to move them regardless. Her wrist got caught on an edge and she hissed in pain...that's it!

Ki twisted her wrists to attempt and use this to her advantage...only to be stopped when the door opened and the lights were triggered, blinding her for several moments as her eyes adjusted. Once they did, she was met with quite the assortment of individuals: two human looking females who looked very similar, and a group of Trandoshans, Ki released a heavy sigh.

"Whatever it is you want, I'm sure we can talk it out. Please, just don't the kids." she pleaded again, becoming more and more desperate.

The taller of two women laughed at the request,"Tch Tch, it won't be that easy dear Kimiko. Besides, all of our time and resources would be wasted if we just sat at a table and talked." she eyed her prey maliciously yet smirking.

The other woman took the pause to speak, her own words sounding colder than the other,"This just happened to be the opportunity to put some sort of plan into action."

The first woman waved her counterpart off, which caused her to hmpf,"Come now, we must see to it preparations are complete for our guest."

Her fingers snapped, and a group of the walking lizards grabbed Tsubasa and her own chair and hefted them to leave. Her head was suddenly placed in a bag of sorts as they moved...

She hoped someone would come soon...tears rolling down her cheeks as they moved them.

The first of the guards dropped to the ground, a new hole sitting right in between his eyes, causing the other two to turn around in shock, they turned back around, lifting their weapons up, but it was too late. Athena was already on top of the second, her teeth sunk deep into the Trandoshan's throat, leaving him unable to make any noise except wheezing before the last could even fire a shot, he also dropped to the ground, three quiet successive shots dropping him to the grounds.

Athena pulled the last of the bodies into the forest as Dax dropped another. The man plugged his communicator into the radio of one of the dead men, syncing their frequencies so he could listen in on the kidnapper's communications. Every advantage he could get, he'd take it.

Athena couldn't feel the inside of the building, something that caused a great amount of concern for the Reaper as he moved through the gates into the floodlit courtyard. Their were few shadows for the man to conceal himself in, but thankfully, the guard's attention was still focused on the outside, not within. Oddly enough, the main entrance seemed unguarded...something was wrong, but Dax wasn't quiet sure. With a deep breath he opened the door and moved in, his weapon raised...

Their seats were slammed down, she heard two distinct impacts, followed by something a little softer. Her neck craned in it's direction, though still blinded. Somewhere behind her a chuckle sounded.

"Now now, the littlest ones are fine. Not a hair out of place, I promise. They are quite beautiful children, though I am having difficulty placing their genes." several steps, before her bag was ripped and she was staring directly into a pair of burgundy eyes.

"Why? Why are you doing all this?" Ki asked in exasperation.

The other woman was at one of the corners of the building they were on, scanning the surrounding area. She huffed softly before turning to the group and approaching where they were currently,"Sister, we are no longer alone."

Sisters...

The so called "sister" grinned delightedly, reaching to pat the other girl's head,"Good eye, Leah. Please, go show our guest the front door. Alive preferably." 'Leah' smiled in delight, and gathered the remaining Trandoshans before leaping off the roof.

Ki scanned the roof, locating two crib-like enclosures, and Tsubasa who was just stirring.

It wasn't but more than a few steps than the front door before the Trandoshans began to open fire on the Rogue. Diving behind the first piece of cover he could find, the Rogue swore under his breath before popping out and taking a few placed shots, dropping the first few of the kidnappers. Dax wasn't about to let anything get in his way. Bursting from cover, firing as he went, he tried to get closer to the remaining three of the Trandoshans. The Rogue took down one more before he ducked behind cover once more. Dropping the first magazine from the rifle he changed magazines as Athena rushed the last and tore his throat. Back to work...

Sweeping down the halls, clearing corners, and checking every room, but there was no sign of Ki or the kids. Frustration built in the man, where the feth were they? Was he too late?

Leah had waited until her target had crossed the threshold of one the compounds larger rooms before she leapt to the ground before him. her stoic expression met him as she stared him down,"You won't find what you're looking for down here. These things were only hired as fodder to distract you." her piercing crimson eyes held no emotion as she spoke to him as she abruptly turned and began heading down another passageway,"I thank you for ridding us of their stench. Come, what you seek lies this way. We shall discuss terms upon arrival."

As the woman dropped down from her perch, Dax raised his rifle. "Feth no, you're gonna bring Ki and the kids here. Now. Or I swear to high heaven I will put this bullet in your skull." The Reaper was sick of this. They took the people he cared about, and he certainly wasn't above taking everything from them either. Pissed off and annoyed, the last thing he was going to do was listen to this woman, one of the people who'd clearly orchestrated whatever the hell this now was. Besides, based on what she'd just said, most of the kidnappers were dead anyways. So why should he listen to her...

"I wouldn't delay your meeting long, lives hang in the balance. Besides, we wish no harm to the fox or her family. We already have what we desire, minus the credits." she glanced back over her shoulder at him.

The Reaper was silent for several long moments. His rifle didn't waver, and for perhaps a small moment, it appeared as if he was actually going to pull the trigger. Finally, Dax lowered his rifle, if only by a fraction, "Hope you know how to walk and talk then. Move."

The Rogue was perplexed now. What exactly was it that she had wanted? And if they were expecting credits from him, they'd be sorely disappointed...so far he'd only brought bullets.

Leah only hummed her response and continued her path. It was rather direct and led the pair up several flights of stairs to the wide open roof where several more of the Trandoshans waited. They would attempt to ambush them as they made their entrance, but Leah easily pushed them back and over the edge to their deaths. Ki immediately spotted Dax and began struggling against her restraints. Beside her another woman smiled at their appearance and made her way towards them,"Thank you Leah, for bringing Dax here to see his friends safe and sound and for eliminating those nasty lizards. Cheap labor, what can I say?" she offered a devilish smile.

Dax scoffed as the mysterious woman pushed the idiot Trandoshans off the edge and to their deaths. Less work for him to do, he reasoned. Seeing that there were now two, very similar women, he couldn't help but think with a healthy amount of disdain, 'Great...there's two of them.' Dax couldn't ignore [member="Kimiko"] tied to the chair either though, ad his rage slowly began to well up inside of him once more. He did his best to restrain himself as he spoke, slowly and deliberately, "What the hell do you want?"

Systematically, Dax took in his surroundings. Where Ki was tied down, Tsubasa nearby, the two cribs not too far away, where the two mastermind's stood. Plans and options were already being formulated and weighed in his head. So far, he didn't like it.

"Now now, don't go gettin' any crazy ideas." she held a bag, medical in nature, full of what appeared too be blood,"We just needed something for research purposes. They are free too leave now, as long as you allow us to."

The other woman, was quietly observing with a condescending look before huffing loudly and speaking,"Sister, this has become way too boring. We have what we want and her ride is here. Can we just leave now?" with her arms crossed.

The duo stared at Dax rather uncomfortably and waited for his answer.

Dax gritted his teeth as the bag of what he could only guess was blood was raised, and the two siblings apparently waited to be granted leave. Every cell in Dax's body screamed for vengeance. The air around him was thick with rage, enough so that it could set those nearby on edge, the two infants beginning to cry.

It was the crying that broke Dax. His own child's wailing among the sounds.

Although the saber that hung from Dax's belt, quietly swinging back and forth, called for the two sisters' blood, the Rogue willed himself to be still. Deep breaths. The rifle in his hands lowered, and a silent nod of his head. 'Get out,' it said, 'before I change my mind.'

The older of the two smiled, widely, yet without malice. Her fingers snapped and Ki and Tsubasa's restraints were released. The released mother instantly rushed to Tsubasa's side, embracing and making sure she was not hurt. One assured, and after a hug, she rushed to the crib-like enclosures, quickly scooping up Oji and Saya. The woman fell to her knees as she held onto the two, joined by Tsubasa shortly, and breathed a heavy sigh of relief. Her eyes eventually found Dax and their captors...

The two women, 'sisters' they may be, swiftly moved past Dax to leave. The younger of them made her exit without so much as a glance back. The older one however, stopped abreast of Dax, but did not look his way.

"This has been shorter than anticipated, but fun. We should get together and do it again sometime. Maybe, with less abduction and more...action? That actually sounds like fun." her smile grew at the thought, and she continued on her way, throwing one last quip over her shoulder,"Until next we meet Dax."

The Rogue watched as the two women passed him by, only his masked head turning to follow them. He gave to response to the older woman, and remained still until he heard the door close behind him.

At that moment the stoic facade broke, and Dax broke into a run, tearing his mask from his face and tossing it aside as he dropped to his knees and wrapped his arms around the young women and infants.

He didn't give [member="Kimiko"] a chance to catch him off guard this time. It was his turn. The Rogue cupped her cheek and kissed her.

The tears were streaming and surprise evident upon the kiss. She wasn't expecting him to be so bold. Yet, she submitted into his embrace, with the littlest ones snuggled between. Tsubasa joined soon after,feeling relieved after their harrowing experience.

As their captors exited, the younger of the two looked away disgustedly at the scene, not wanting anything to do with such sappy subjects. The older of them playfully nudged her younger sister, taking the moment too tease the woman, while adding,"Until we meet again." with a venomous smile.
