((OOC: Sorry it took so long for me to post but, you won't regret the wait. I promise
The small freighter lurched out of hyperspace sending ripples of concussive energy through the vastness of space, almost immediately he was commed by traffic control and asked about his purpose on Coruscant. He complied, telling them his name and his reason for docking. There was a long pause on the other end of the comms. They obviously had heard of him. He brought the freighter into a standard orbital trajectory as he waited for the di'kuts
to make up their mind. Finally, they responded, telling him he could bring his ship into the entertainment district. Cirith rejected their offer, and proceeded down into the city world's atmosphere, as he told them he was expected somewhere else.
Then he shut off the comms. Judging by their suprised response and the timidness in their voice, he knew that they'd heard his name before. The possibility that his sister Arwyn was already there came to his mind but, he pushed the thought away. It didn't matter. He flew down into the top layer of clouds, letting his sensors and the Force guide his hands as he manuevered the heavily armed and armored craft as deftly as any Jedi. Jedi weren't the only ones that could fly ships with ease.A few minutes later....
Cirith found himself flying over the busness district, the tallest skyscrapers passing him by on either side, slowly dwindling down as he came into a meadow like area, where a wide round roofed building stood in a sea of buildings of smaller proportions. The scene reminded him of the jungles of his homeworld. It was as if he was making his way through the thick vegetation of traffic and permacrete trees and then coming upon a clearing with a large boulder in the center. The Senate building stood in stark contrast to all those around it, and it was readily identifiable. As he lowered the ship down to a private docking bay, he saw the silver gleam of his old ship, The Scarlet Sabre
, his first love. His only love, besides his family and closest friends. It had been years since he'd seen his first ship, passed down rightfully to him by his long deceased buir
(father) and a few years later, handed to his little sister, when he decided to join the Mandalorian military as a black ops commando. Not suprisingly Arwyn was already waiting for him, tapping her foot impatiently as he lowered the landing struts and landed the militarily upgraded ship. He lowered the loading ramp at the center of the ship and gathered his weapons from the co-pilots empty seat. He placed his father's twin Westar 28 Blaster Pistols in their appropriate holsters and then clicked his buir's
(mother in this case) lightsaber to the small of his back, before getting up from the pilots chair and shutting down the Ver'dika's
twin engines, and walking down the ramp. Then he raises his wrist and typed in a command to the slave link on his ship. A second later the ramp raised and locked with a reassuring clank!
He walked out from beneath his ship and over to his sister. "Se'cuy ghar adike. Been waiting long?"
Cirith said knowing already that she'd been waiting atleast an hour, the mirth clear in his voice. He loved egging his sister on, and she loved it, though she'd never admit it openly. It was clear they were siblings to anyone that cared to look, though hardly anyone would simply because they were both Mandalorians."Cirith! Are you trying to piss me off?! I've been waiting over an hour mirsheb!"
Arwyn sad walking toward him with purpose and decking him once she was within reach. He could have avoided it but, getting a punch from Arwyn was like getting a hug, so he just endured the pain like he had so many times before. Like so many times before the impact of her fist sent him stumbling, a hard thing to accomplish considering he was wearing his customary heavy plated armor. "Nah too easy"
he said as he rubbed his shoulder where she managed to hit the singular lighter armor on the upper part of his arm, beneath the heavy shoulder pauldrons. He grimaced beneath the helmet as the sting began to intensify "Nice to see you too sis"
he said a little harsher than he meant to. She took it in stride as always, since the death of their father, Cirith had tried to ignore his personal feelings and deaden them. Arwyn simply shook head and gestured behind her "C'mon, let's go."A few minutes later...
The Mandalorian siblings entered a corner office that offered a spectacular view of the city and were immdiately halted by his personal guards. Arwyn's visor tipped towards the guards hands in annoyance, as they attempted to hold them back from entering any further, their other hands dangerously close to their stun batons. Arwyn lifted one of them from their feet, looking in all the world as a small teenager lifting a proffessional heavy weight wrestler in comparison to the guard she lifted easily off the floor."Listen and listen good arruetti move"
Arwyn hissed through the helmet's speakers. The other guard paled as he realized that Cirith was not yet doing anything besides simply crossing his arms over his chest in boredom. The poor guard didn't know who to take as a worse threat to security. Cirith, who was calmly observing, or Arwyn and her superior physical strength. Fortunately the Senator they had an appointment with appeared, quickly telling the guards to back down. The guard Arwyn held in mid-air quickly nodded his head in compliance. After being dismissed by the senator, the guards left. Cirith simply shook his head, they were obviously green.
"I see the rumors about you two are not false, and not exaggerated. Good, you're just the people for this job" the Senator said reaching out his hand in greeting. Neither Arwyn or Cirith moved to accept it, and the Human quickly albeit awkwardly put his hand back to his side.
"Ah yes, to the busness at hand" the Senator said moving to his desk and gesturing to the two seats in front of it. Cirith and Arwyn moved forward but, continued to stand much to the officials dissapointment. "Right, well. The job I want you to do for me is rescue children on a outer rim world of Belance. Our informants have tracked the pirates that abducted them to that planet. The Jedi have sent their own Knight to deal with the matter but I believe he is outmatched for the task. A rival of mine's children are held there presently. Rescuing his children would give me great pull with him and raise my popularity in the eyes of the public. I do not want these children to be a travesty of another Jedi failing. I want you to help the Jedi if necessary but, you're priority will be in the rescue of these two children. I will pay you fifty thousand credits for the trouble ofcourse" the Senator said as he layed a picture of the children on the table, and steepled his fingers."Two million. Each. Take it or leave it"
Cirith said not even glancing at the photos.
"What?! That's outrageous! Why should I pay you that much? For that you could build half a fleet!" the Senator stood up abruptly slamming his hands on the table, his face turning red in anger."You want us to storm a place where the pirates have already set up, and if they're smart, have reinforced. You want the children alive and well, and you want us to get into the middle of what may become a struggle between Jedi. That takes planning, diversions. Not to mention gaining the trust of the Jedi that was already sent, who don't like us Mando'ade anyway. The offer is now four million each, for making me explain myself mer'sheb. I suggest you take it"
Cirith said counting off on his gloved fingers.
After a moment of consideration the official finally caved "very well, but, they better be alive!"
Cirith grabbed the flimsi that held the children's photo's and walked away, Arwyn in tow.A few moments later The Verd'ika and the Scarlet Sabre break away from Coruscant's gravity well and dissappear into hyperspace
