Just another day

Dreams are nice, at least I think so. But dreaming for the last few hundred years can get rather boring while drifting in space. So it begins once more an old and by old I mean really old galactic imperial escape shuttle was drifting through artisan space it had been a fortnight or two since the disappearance of Rexus Drath after that whole Mak incident with the empire but that's not important, and in my opinion that guy can suck an eg.. Nevermind It's starting, inside the ship housed the imperial knight Rexus Drath a giant of a man lay dormant in cryosleep dreaming for what had seemed to be way too long. The ship had been drifting through space and now found itself entering the atmosphere of the humble planet atresia. Burning through the atmosphere the ship crash landed in a large green meadow hopefully the ships crew were still intact.


The crashed ship lay in the meadow burnt and charred running through its disgnostic and passenger checks "Life support systems critical. Hull integrity comprimised, Flight systems offline, weapons systems offline, shields offline, power supply ctitical. Passenger one deceased, passenger two deceased." the robotic voice began to crackle and static as the ship began to lose all power. "Passanger three deceased, Passanger four vital signs weak initiating activation" the voice faded and crackled into nothing as a small coffin shaped metal box began to hiss and open until the lid slipped off the side. Rexus Drath the imperial knight with sense of humor coughed and began to stir from his long slumber "Ugh my head, hey you guys better have a good reason for waking me. Someone get me a tequila sunrise and a painkiller" sitting up slowly he looked at the scene around him as his vision began to clear to see the crashed ship and the light of day peeking in from outside the torn hull. "Well... Crap" standing up on wobbly legs he looked at the vitals for the other cryosleep coffins and sighed "It was an honor boys, I will remember you all." Taking his silver lightsaber from his hip he slashed a hole through the side of the ship and stepped through it to look at his surroundings "Man hopefully I crashed on naboo, I could use a vacation from the nine to five." he chuckled softly then pulled out his communicator "COC COC this is Indigo Kilo tac Romeo Delta radio check over." Rex waited a moment but nothing was heard back from his imperial comrades only static. So he tried again on an open signal. Hey any contact was better than no contact in his mind at least he could at least figure out where he was. "COC COC this is Indigo Kilo tac Romeo Delta, radio check over. Is anyone there?" Rexus rubbed his head and dusted off his shiny knight's red armor. this wasn't making any sense the empire had communications no matter what part of the galaxy he was in. "Something's wrong." he said to himself softly he looked out onto the large field he found himself in and sighed. He had to wait there for a few moments to at least see if he got a call back or if anyone came looking for the ship that crashed.

Bellalika was in her room at the Citadel checking the equipment as she had been working on. Some more tweaks to their standard issued blasters now, the blades and finally Naamah's purge unit. Then alarms sounded as deja vu came.. this is what it must have felt like when she had crashed because that was the report. A crashed ship near them and they mobilized... First gearing up in the new leather armors instead of the robes as The sixteen year old secured her equipment and walked out seeing the sight and sounds.

"Well then lets go and say hello, standard protocol if he is force sensitive we either kill or reeducate." With a look around the Inquisition began walking towards the crash in unison while the troopers who guarded them let them go about... This was something hounds could handle under guard after all and so she marched checking the purge unit in her hand to make sure the flame was lit. "Oh Naamah would be so happy to have visitors."

"Oh great they got my message!" Rex walked over to them and started to feel a bit weak in the legs, "What the hell?" the effects of being in cryosleep for so long was starting to take effect. He looked at the short people around him, they looked like storm troopers but outfitted with new gear. "I am imperial Knight Rexus Drath of the galactic empire! Stand down troopers I'm on your side." he stood there wobbling a bit putting his active silver lightsaber away at his hip. "Like I said I'm Rex and I just returned from a mission from our emperor dealing with the rebel uprising, my other knights did not survive the crash and I would like it if my own men didn't point blasters at me."

Walking forward he stumbled a bit then came to his knees he just felt weak all around now taking deep breaths looking up he saw a young girl, probably some stuffy imperial officers daughter he had thought. "What is this place? Why do I feel so weak? Did you do something to the air?!" standing back up barely Rex hobbled over some more to the girl looking down at her from his immense height. "Where Is the nearest imperial outpost I sense something is wrong and I must report it to the emperor at once!"

Bellalika looked at the man and raised an eyebrow while her hand came up letting the troopers raise their weapons but the inquisition standing around still remained poised and ready. This was like a lion stalking prey and all were ready to pounce. "Interesting... Very interesting to say the least. You will find Rex that much has changed and we are not the empire... Well we are but there are no more Imperial knights. All there is now is the inquisition and we do not like people crashing on the world."

Bellalika started marching back as her hand came down for the soldiers. "Bring him." Her face remained passive and she spoke into her comlink. "Grand Inquisitor @[member="Mirien Valdier"], Interrogator @[member="Naamah Aesham"], I am bringing in a "guest. An imperial knight who says he has information. Orders Grand inquisitor?"

Surprisingly enough Naamah had not been tormenting heretics and apostates when her comm beeped. Rather she had been using her free time to water her plants on the windowsill of her small room. Of interest was a shelf in the corner of her room that held various jars that held body parts, such as a finger and part of a lekku.

There was also a half finished and surprisingly good sketch of a majestic Mirien dressed in a black leather outfit, holding a lightwhip, with lightning in the distance, on her bed.

"A what? How many false empires do we have these days? It's like everyone wants to be one these days. Or did he do a time jump? Well, we should be welcoming to a guest and show him the best of Atrisian hospitality!" she declared in a strangely chipper tone as she finished up with her plants. "I shall be right there."

My question is how do we always get ourselves into situations like this? Is it me? Did I do something in a past life to deserve this I mean honestly I must of strangled some kind of infant to get into crap like this constantly. Rexus started to look at the troopers moving in on him to "escort" him to the "greeting room" and by escort it's take prisoner! And by greeting room they mean interrogation room! Rexus hobbled back onto his feet then took a few deep breaths putting a smile on his face "I can escort myself thank you." Rex channeled the force around him and started to stabilize himself as he walked besides this small girl "What do you mean are but are not the empire? All this circles talk is gonna make me totally lose my marbles" Rexus chuckled and looked around at his surroundings "And what do you mean there's no more knights? There were dozens of us when I left from headquarters. I mean I'm not great detective or anything but i'm pretty sure tons of knights just don't vanish over night." Rexus chuckled again then sighed "That rhymed, I should of been a rapper." It was a decent walk for the most part, though it was hard to enjoy the scenery with blasters potentially being pointed at you.


"And what smells like almonds?" Rex shook his head then collapsed on the ground snoring heavily, his body had been through too much and he simply collapsed on the ground snoring the day away "No I don't want your speeder Yams, I don't care if you got it insured its still crap." Rex spoke in his sleep then snored again his dreads blowing back and forth as inhaled and exhaled.

Bellalika heard Naamah and grinned a little. Then Rex spoke and was even more confusing. "We are not the Imperial government the knights came from. Imperial knights were destroyed or absorbed into the sith empire... We are Atrisian and that means we are the true empire. Not some random one shot who only wants the crown, no we have history." Then he fell over and was asleep. Her eyes remained on him for a moment... Then her boot was nudging him.

"Crap the Grand inquisitor is going to tan my hide..." Normally that would be a welcome thing but right now.... right now all she wanted to do was not have it look like she beat a prisoners... Yet. Her hands motioned and two soldiers went to grab the man while the room was being prepared. A bed now so he could sleep and plenty of water. It was going to be a long day with him and He was set up on the bed while Bellalika just watched him. "Wakey wakey."

Shortly thereafter Naamah entered the room, looking as chipper as ever as she first laid eyes upon their prisoner - and recruit, if he came to understand his place in things - and then Bellalika, her partner in enforcing the will of the Grand Inquisitor. The characteristic, slightly deranged smirk was on her face as she watched Rexus sleeping like he had not a care in the world.

"You did not start having all the fun without and give our guest a bright welcoming without me, did you? He's looking too peaceful, so I guess no hallucinatory drugs! Those are fun," she said happily. Given the dirty business that being an Inquisitor often involved indulging in, it was always good to find a member who could maintain a chipper and happy attitude. "Should I go fetch some ice water? I hear it helps."

Mirien seemed to appear from no where. Eyes dancing between the three of them. The sleeping man, Naamah, and Bella.
"You said he was an Imperial Knight? How odd...Imperial Knights have not been seen in hundreds of years." She seemed baffled but her ice cold nature and tone remained. "Get the information from him, then show him proper training." With a smirk she glanced between the women, "Do try not to maim this one, but do what you must."

"Report to me when you have answers, until then I have other affairs to manage." And just as quickly as she had come, Mirien was gone stalking off, heading back to her tower. Mission planning would consume her day, she didn't have time to worry about information from some Imperial Knight. Imperial Knight? They were of the Empire of old ... Is that where he came from? Was he frozen for so long... She pondered briefly before setting the thoughts aside and started to pin a plan for taking a light sided temple. There was information there that she wanted. The Empire needed.

Bellalika looked at the blond and shrugged giving a face. She usually lied no scratch that.. She always lied but right now at this moment she was telling the truth. "I really didn't do anything. He walked, spoke and then fell over.... I never laid a finger on him." Her head swiveled back to the man and she felt the Grand inquisitor, she still appeared from nowhere but that cold shiver was more then enough. The orders came and her head bobbed up and down in acknowledgement. "Understood Grand Inquisitor."

She waited until the woman left and ran a hand towards the IV for him. Standard procedure sure but the stims to wake him up weren't. No she wanted him wide eyed and ready to answer questions that might come to her or Naamah as it were and slowly she pushed the plunger in to give the stims. "Wakey wakey sweetie, come along there are many questions for you."

"Maybe his hyperdrive had a malfunction and he was thrown forward. I heard that can happen. Well, I might have been seeing funny colours then," Naamah suggested with her usual chipper tone. This had actually happened to a certain woman-shaped battering ram who had been knocked backward in time, in another time and place!

A cold shiver ran over her at the appearance of the Grand Inquisitor. She always seemed to appear out of nowhere, like a ghost. Her eyes always watching, seeing everything, ready to inflict punishment on those that failed her. It both unnerved and excited her, the power she commanded. "As you command, Mistress. We'll help him adjust and welcome him to the new world." No maiming, alright, it was not fun to start with that anyway. There was always that trick Mirien had used on her to torture her lungs, leave her weak and begging...it had been illuminating. Hallucinatory drugs to warp the mind were fun as well.

Rex had passed out on the ground, it wasn't his proudest moment but dammit it was necessary. I mean how about you get in cryo sleep for almost a thousand years then get out. Bet you wouldn't be walking around smoking and joking like nothing happened! "Ugh my head" The stims woke up rex quickly in a small room looking around slowly he sighed and sat up. "Waitress! Check please." laying back down he scanned the room for any signs of life besides himself and saw the young girl in front of him. He had tons of questions and he was sure whoever was caring for him had theirs "Does anyone here besides me feel like ten pound bag of crap in a five pound bag?"

Rex rubbed his eyes then sat back up in the bed he was still wearing his armor and luckily still had his saber. Maybe the people here weren't here to brutally murder him or possibly take advantage of his gorgeous body. "Hello? Can you please explain what's going on to me cause I'm pretty confused right now and could use a recap on recent events and juice box would be nice" Rexus chuckled and looked around sighing afterwards. There was a lot of change in the wind Rex could feel it and he had to adjust to it and possibly even find a new line of work.

Bellalika looked at the man and leaned back in her seat a little while he spoke, her vision of Naamah was just on the edge of her sight. "Well we can answer some questions for you and juice can be provided after the initial questions. For now well lets just see where we are. Quick review just nod your head. Your name is Rex, you were an Imperial knight and you crashed on Atrisia after an incident... yes? All of those are the current things we have gotten." Her smile came while a droid brought some water and "food" or at least what hospitals gave.

"Now I am Bellalika of the Atrisian Empire, this is my friend and keep colleague who will help with any questions I miss. First one is where were you headed before the accident?"

Rexus chuckled and shook his head "Yes I am a knight, you don't stop being one just because everyone you know and love is dead." He had sworn to defend the empire to his dying breath and he had lost many friends upholding that oath. But right now the moment didn't call for thinking about what might of happened he had to focus on the here and now. His head picked up when the girl asked where he was going before they crashed. "Where was I going?" he looked up at the ceiling and shuddered a bit. "We were coming off a dead drop in hutt space. My fellow knights and I had been detached to pick up classified documents with an agent on this space station from some mobster we had paid off." Rex gulped a bit then looked around before continuing "It was a set up though, when we got there they killed the agent and my two of my knights Salak and Raj. We made it back to our ship they fired on us and we lost communications and most of our power so once we ditched them we decided to switch the ship to auto pilot and freeze ourselves so we wouldn't lose power running the life support out. I guess the ship's auto pilot crapped out and we drifted into the black. We were headed for imperial space." Rex was smarter than he gave himself credit for though it must of been the only option since he found himself in this predicament

"Quite a tale and sadly one we cannot verify there was a wipe of data many decades ago and some, a great many records were lost and a few hunred years worth of backlogs might prove... tiresome but you wouldn't lie to me now would you? No you know liars are something handled so. Next question... Can you serve under the colors of the Emperor? We are not the Fels, we are not the ancient empire they have been taken over by the sith. The ones who wished to hold to their ideals came here. So can you handle that?"
