"Sir, one of our teams brought back a droid."
The young soldier hesitated and that caught Carth Onasi's attention. He was well liked by his men and preferred to think he was easily approachable, which he was. So it was that Admiral Onasi had learned to be alert when a soldier appeared nervous whilst bringing him news. Carth, hands clasped loosely behind, turned and regarded the youth.
The soldier realized his commanding was waiting for him to continue and he made a nervous squeak drawing in a breath. "Uh, excuse me, uh sir. The droid is asking for you Admiral. It says -"
"Where is it?" Carth asked with such sudden intensity the young man nearly leapt out of his own skin. With a great deal of restraint Carth kept from grabbing the soldier and shaking the information out of him. Something deep within Carth Onasi had stirred. His thoughts whispered a name and with that hope burned in his heart.
The soldier pointed a shaking finger in a vague direction towards the aft of the ve

The vibroblade whistled through the air making contact with Dustil's shielded forearm. He grunted with the impact but managed to redirect the weapon away from his body. Quickly the Padawan followed with his own sword, an Echani foil on loan from Motta, and swung it upwards catching his opponent unexpectedly on the breastplate.
Sai Penteg's breath rushed from his lungs and he doubled over with a gasp. Even with the wind knocked from him, the man was fast. He shuffled backwards bringing his own vibroblade up in a protective gesture.
Seeing his opportunity to take the offensive Dustil lunged forward, raising his sword above his head and bringing it smashing down upon Sai's head. Just barely Sai managed to block the attack, the stadium lights gleaming off the edge of the blade a few inches from his face. Dustil saw the look of fear that filled the other mans face as the outcome of this fight suddenly became certain.

It was difficult to control his impatience. Carth focused on landing the Raptor in the Gargon port. The vessel slipped into her dock, touching down softly, and settling lightly on her landing pads. He punched a few buttons and the Raptor's engines went quiet. The sudden silence felt a stark contrast to what he was experiencing on the inside. For a moment the pilot sat and considered the situation.
Somewhere on the planet Revan and Dustil waited for him. But they could be anywhere in the bustling district with its forest of towering high rises and the thousands of people crowded into them. Carth hadn't been this close to his loved ones in years, yet without knowing where they were, he may well have still been in the Inner Core.
In the Raptor's common area his friends were waiting. Bastilla and Jolee were talking softly in a far corner. Canderous, armed to the teeth with a heavy repeating blaster at each hip, was propped aga

There was an elation growing within him he hadn't felt in years. Not since Revan had agreed to let him give her a future had there been this energy fueling him onward. In his mind Carth was already planning for what would come next. He had a fair number of questions to ask of both Dustil and Revan. Though the important thing was to get Revan to safety aboard the Raptor. After there would be all the time in the world for questions.
Dustil led the way with confidence through the streets and the others followed. Even at the late hour a fair number of citizens still were strolling about. The groups urgent pace attracted a number of stares from people. On more than one occasion someone would point at Dustil excitedly then wave or call to him. If this fame meant anything to the young man Dustil didn't show it. He ignored the fans and continued to run.
The attractive shopping centers and the brightly lit gambling houses and nightclubs faded a
