It all began when the Mantera corrupted...
The Orium Emperor knew of his planet's power, and understood that its military was far more superior to that of any other nation, thus he began his conquest...
It began on a small Ebeldon moon and then quickly spread to the other moons within the planet's orbit until the whole Ebeldon system was under the Orium Emperor's control.
That was only the beginning of his conquest.
He dominated another system before more planetary nations began to ally against him, but they couldn't stop him.
His fleet was too big, too strong, and he himself had mastered Mantera...
The war is nearing an end with only one system left for his grandson to conquer in his name, The Halo System is all that remains almost untouched by the war.
But Orium is growing restless.
The time for them to end the war is now...
She didn’t know what she was getting into that was true, but she didn’t really care anymore. Her life had become much like the dirt she lived off of in the old streets of what had once been. The galaxy had been at war for too long for a person like her to matter, and she knew that she was only a small speck in a huge system.
She ran through the streets from her pursuers, no one could know what she had just done except for them. No one knew what had just happened aside from those she was running from.
At least everyone else would be safe from what she had just prevented, she knew that as long as she remained away from the Hinders she would be fine, so long as she was hidden she was free. Every night she prayed to the forces that ruled her galaxy that she would be safe know that everything had been taken away from her.
But then again, why live when you have nothing to live for?
He stood in the firing range and aimed his gun. He knew that he didn’t have to be here, but shooting always calmed him down. He caught the moving targets in his sights and shot every single one down one by one. He reloaded his gun and waited for the course to reset itself.
That’s when he felt it.
He knew the captain was behind him watching. He always knew when she was around. He waited to see if she would say anything but the silence in the room remained. The targets appeared on the course again and he held up his gun shooting them all down again.
He was the best shot in the Orium system and he knew it. He again waited for the captain to say something but was only met with silence.
Then a gun went off that was not his own.
He felt the sudden pain of a bullet rip through him and screamed, behind him, he heard the slow laughter of the captain.
He fell to the ground, and was met with darkness.
She turned the fighter around and waited. She had been in the Galtord sector for some time now and it was eerily quiet. This place was supposed to be dangerous, a suicide mission.
That’s why she had been sent here.
She had broken rule number four, She had gotten involved in non-related affairs, because she had helped slaves. She was simply lucky that she was too good to lose. And that’s why they had sent her here. So she could die without any guilt on her superiors.
She felt it coming before her radars picked it up. The flow of a machine cutting through space. She whipped around and aimed at the T-wing pod fighter. It was a new model, one that had been designed for a quick offense. She was startled at the fact that it was alone and although it zipped around her fast she was easily able to catch up with it. She quickly locked it in her sights and shot it down.
It blew up in one burst of flame and then was gone. She watched the debris float out into space.A sudden tingle went up her spine as the eerie quiet of space set in again. She sat in the endless silence waiting patiently and making sure to stay alert.
That's when she felt the strange pulling, she could feel a hundred minds out in space whispering. She held her breath waiting to see if a ship would come.
Then her radar started going crazy.
He was a skilled fighter and nothing could take him down, he stared at his opponent and knew that the other man would be the one not to leave the arena a winner. He had to win for his brother, he knew that much, that was the difference between him and that man. He heard the roar of the crowd and knew that the bets had been placed.
He heard a droid announce that the match could begin. He snapped into action immediately and aimed a hit for the man’s chest.
It never connected...
He was on the ground and felt blood trickle from a cut that the man had made in the side of his head when he hit him. He saw a ring on his right hand and sly smile roll across the man’s face. He stood and held up his fists. He wouldn’t let the man hit him again.
He had to win for his brother.
She stood on the balcony and looked out at all the people gathered for the celebration. She could see their excitement but shared none of it.
They didn’t know what was happening in her room at the moment.
They didn’t know that by tomorrow unease would be running through the city.
Her capture was binding her hands behind her back as the crowd cheered below a sea of color and giddiness. She held her breath, her fear absolute.
Her capture lead her away to a small cargo ship docked on her balcony she began to bite her lip, she couldn’t get out of this. He led her into the ship and down a dark flight of stairs and put her into a small cell and left.
She felt the ship take off and held her breathe. It wasn’t her fault, none of it was.
She just happened to know the dead languages.
She felt the ship hit light speed, and closed her eyes. She didn’t know what would happen but she promised herself that she would try to live.
He stood at the computer and began to type in diagnoses for the droid he was fixing. He kept staring at it in the corner of the shop. He had never had a model such as this one come in, and he didn’t truly understand what the man had meant when he dropped it off.
Make sure no one but me picks it up, it is the key to the future, and it is the key to success.
He finished the diagnoses and then began to gather a set of tools needed to fix it. He gathered them all and set to work on the motionless droid. It was an older model, and a prototype model that had never been open for sale to the public market, how the man had gotten it he had no idea.
He began to open up the main system overhead when suddenly the droid came to life. He jumped back unsure what to do as the droid scanned him. He starred at the machine as it beeped and took in the data. It’s top opened up suddenly and a platform came out with a data link on it. He stared at the link and then at the droid and knew that something was wrong.
Then it shut off with the data link still on it's platform.
