He walked through the cockpit of the royal shuttle that was under the possession of Reela Witko. They were travelling to the planet of Lorrd, under her suggestion. He didn't truly know as of yet. His hand brushed over his lightsaber hilt as he paced back and forth.

His persona of a patient and calm person didn't exist as he walked back and forth. Hyperspace jumps were quite boring, and there weren't many things to do while in a hyperspace jump, besides sleep, eat, and talk. But at the moment Reela Witko was sleeping and he felt the jump was near it's end, so he just let the ship do what ships do. And travel between space systems.

His outer Jedi robes were black, and they hung to just passed his knees, and his inner robes were a brown and cream colour, and when he brushed his hand through them, he felt his second weapon, a blaster pistol which he doubted he would ever need with the Force and a lightsaber at his disposal. But you never knew.

And so he sat down into the pilot's chair and waited until the hyperspace jump ended. It seemed becoming bored is what happens when you, love having long sleeps. You are unable to go to sleep when there is nothing else to do.

Reela had indeed fallen asleep on the seat she was sitting on. Her time before of traveling a lot had a tendency to make her sleep fast on long flights. At the very least it meant she would be well rested for when they'd finally reach Lorrd. Meanwhile TC-18 had made his way through the ship acting for Reela by given instructions or notices here and there to the crew of the ship. He'd finally come back to the main area where Windu was, seeing him pacing.

"Is everything alright, master Windu?" he asked, walking up to him.

TC had taken a moment to look behind and see as Reela was resting. His droid head shook a little at how she would always do that, no matter how important something seemed she'd always rest during the flights.

He nodded his head to the droid and slowed down his pacing until he stopped completely. "I am fine. How are you, TC?" He said with a smile. He had come to almost 'enjoy' the presence of the droid. It was quite innocent, though it served as an advisor. It worked purely on facts, or stereotypes, though it didn't matter. The droid was quite loyal to Reela Witko, and that was fine.

Once TC had replied he walked through the ship until he found Reela sleeping soundly and he removed his outer robes, to cover her with it. He didn't really need it, and he doubted she did, but she was asleep and it seemed like the right thing to do.

"Excellent, sir." Tc stated. "I should note the captain stated we will be arriving within the next ten minutes." He then followed Windu and saw what he did for Reela. TC waited until Windu came back and said "If I may say so, sir, I've been chronicling the amount of time you and the princess have been seeing each other with how many times you've said how you 'like' each other as well. I believe you are the first real attachment outside of the family, and aside from her jedi master, that she's shown affection for."

He simply smiled at the droid and nodded his head. He had figured out what the droid had told him, but it was still nice to hear it. "Thank you, TC." He said with a smile. And he looked around the room before his near-black eyes found the droid again and he said, "perhaps you can go and find out how long until we get there?" The smile always present on his face.

TC bowed a little before leaving Windu and the still sleeping princess. When the shudder came of the ship finally dropping out of hyperspace Reela shot up from her nap and said "Are we there?" It was a little odd how she just woke up as if on cue but then again her sleeping habits for long trips were something of an oddity themselves. She looked down and saw Windu's robes on her, making her look up to see him and smile. She stood and handed them back saying "Thank you, Antares. That was sweet of you. Now come on let's get to the bridge." She walked with him back to the bridge where they could see a good view of the planet Lorrd as they approached it.

He bowed his head to her and just followed her out of the room. "You are well rested?" He asked as they left her temporary sleeping quarters and eventually emerged into the cockpit of the ship and saw the planet of Lorrd floating in space. As the ship got closer, the planet grew in the ship's viewport and he held his hands in front of him.

"I'm fine, Windu. Really." she said as they looked over the planet. Giving the orders to take them down the ship made it's way to the surface where, after landing, Reela got out with Antares, both wearing their hoods over their heads, and inspected the surrounding area. The temple they came to investigate was close by amid the almost barren looking area. There was vegetation around the temple itself along with the water flowing from it, showing this place wasn't completely desolate, yet it seemed to Reela like a more suitable lace for anyone but the Sith. Reela quickly checked her communicator with TC, seeing it was working, before indicating for Windu to follow her. "That temple is one of the few remaining from the Sith when they ruled this planet. I figure they'll be lots of important things inside which, if we're lucky, we can bring back to the Jedi and prove we're ready to be knights. Or at least close enough to be."

He was quiet and let her speak. At least now he knew why they were upon this planet out of all of the available planets within the Outer Rim. "Our Masters and the Council will decide if we are ready to be Jedi Knights." He said with a smile, and he unclipped his lightsaber from his belt and pushed it up his sleeve. It would be better to have it hidden so that it could slide easier into his hand when he fell into the Makashi Stance of Form Two.

His eyes reflected the light that came to them and he looked about their landing zone. "Shall we go in?" He asked, and without waiting for her answer he already begin to walk towards the supposedly abandoned Sith Temple.

"I know, I know. But think of what this will mean if we succeed. And besides the Republic and Jedi are already trying to clear out what they can from the Sith worlds so this will be us getting a head start is all." She followed him towards the temple where they reached the entrance. Reela took out her lightsaber and used it like a torch as she raised it high enough and used it's purple light to illuminate the dark area. "Well here we go." she said with a bit of a less optimistic tone. True she was eager but at the same time she didn't know what they'd run into while down in the bowls of the temple itself. So many things could be waiting down there for them.

He let her take the lead and he followed her into the old and abandoned Sith Temple. He let his lightsaber fall into his wrist slightly, and he covered them from behind. If they were to be attacked, it was better to be parried from the behind while the person in the front lit the way. After all, Antares Windu would have been capable of protecting the both of them, as long as they were attacked in one direction.

"Do you know where you're going?" The young Jedi Padawan asked after what felt like minutes of silence, but was in fact only a few seconds. Impatience really wasn't a virtue, huh?

"Yes, in." she said, knowing it was a joke. She just kept pressing foward before they came to one of the larger rooms with a number of statues of different Sith all about the place. "Wow....look at these things." she said running over and standing at the base of a statue of Count Dooku, also known as Darth Tyrannis. "Say what you will about Sith but they're very good with their craftsmanship."

He watched her admire the room of statues. Good at craftsmanship? "I doubt the Sith did the constructing. Rather their slaves." He said with a shake of his head, at her thinking that the Sith actually built things, and the fact that the Sith had slaves. A saddening thought in an already almost depressing place. "Shall we continue on?" He said. This room wasn't what they were looking for, whatever that was.

Reela gave an acknowledging nod when he'd mentioned slaves. Guess that was a good point to make. She turned away from the statue and moved on with him down another large corridor before stopping. "Did you hear anything just now?" she asked, after thinking she heard something move nearby. "It sounded like....something moving." She looked about, trying to see, shining her lightsaber all about the place. "You know that very bad feeling you get when you're not sure if you're being watched?"

He didn't look around like he should have. That would have been a mistake. If there was something out there and he tried to look for it, if it had enough intelligence it would realize it's prey had been alerted. And that wasn't always good for the predator. In fact, it was never good. "We have to return to the Entrance." He said, and let his eyes move around to try and see what they could see.

"Probably some Sith beast. We have to go." He said, and he tightened his grip on his lightsaber and he grabbed her arm firmly and started to back up.

"Yeah. I think you're right." she said as she began to back up with him. But no sooner did they reached the entrance before something large blocked their escape. A large drooling nexu growled as it stood in their way. Given the size the creature had to have been an alpha male of sorts. But Reela could also see his ribs meaning this creature was starving. It came cloer making Reela back away from it with Windu while pointing her saber at him. "Easy now." she said to Windu. "This thing has been around Sith. So it knows we're a threat as long as we have our sabers. But that doesn't mean it won't try to get around them."

The Jedi Padawan ignited his lightsaber. He wasn't backing down to a beast. And he grinned, confidence plastered all over his face until a voice in his mind said, Conquer Arrogance. And the grin left his face and it was replaced with determination and as much seriousness as the always grinning Antares could muster.

"We've got this." He said and he threw his free hand up to release a force push at the nexu.

The nexu jumped away from the force push and hid behind one of the statues. "It's obviously prone to watch for force pushes with it's senses." Reela figured. "Maybe we can use that to an advantage." She watched and waited before it was between two more statues, she rushing at it with her saber. The nexu leapt away and was out in the open, giving a clear shot for Windu to do something.

He stepped forward and launched his hand out again at the Nexu. The Force was released from his hand with a strength that would have been capable of throwing the nexu across the room that they were in.

He also started to run towards the nexu once he had sent his force push at it, he figured it was good that he was doing a follow up attack.

The nexu was flown back and smacked against the wall but recovered in time to dodge Windu's strike. It tried to come up from behind but Reela stepped in the way and flashed her saber at it. The creature recoiled before ducking behind the statues again, clearly showing this was it's means of cover. As Windu recovered she said "We should try and take it from both sides. Force it into one of us and slice it from there. I'll go left you go right."
