Just got off from the fair and took a break from my homework so here is a little something I have been thinking about.
Flashback: The Sacking
Corucant, The Jedi Temple
Clyde watched as the Sith charged from the downed transport. Their crimson blades streaked across the burning and crumbling temple. The Jedi charged as well, all of them still in utter shock from the attack. But, every one of them was determined to drive the Sith out of the Temple.
So, why wasn’t Clyde fighting with the rest of them? Instead he stood perched on a balcony above that housed the Jedi Archive.
I should be fighting with them
, he thought. He wanted to so badly cut the Sith down, to avenge his fallen master. Instead he was up in the Archives watching as Jedi were slain and he was helplessly waiting for his own doom. His master would have wanted the Archive safe and he wasn’t about to let the Sith destroy it.
Suddenly, Clyde heard the igniting of a lightsaber behind him. He turned around, igniting his own lightsaber to face off against whoever had dared to damage the Archives. He found exactly who he expected, a Sith.
The Sith wore a black robe like those of the Sith below and cybernetics marked his face and arm. He looked the same age as Clyde if not a few years older than him and was also human. The Sith’s lightsaber was in a Shi-Cho form, but he was obviously fighting in a defensive mindset judging from the fact that Clyde wasn’t already dead.
The Sith spoke in an even and almost begging tone,” Please I just need some information from the Archive. Don’t make me kill you.”
“A Sith with mercy”, said Clyde mockingly,” Another Sith lie I suspect.”
“The fact that you aren’t dead is proof enough Jedi”, said the Sith in an as a matter of fact tone.
“I could kill you easily”, said Clyde angrily.
“I thought Jedi were all about peace”, said the Sith shrugging,” I guess I heard wrong.”
Clyde charged Svein with a burning hatred. His lightsaber clashed with the Sith’s in a loud crackle. The Sith pulled away and jumped over Clyde in a swift and fluid motion. Clyde blocked an attack from the Sith who swung a powerful blow though it was misguided. Clyde growled as he charged, his lightsaber aiming for his leg. The Sith blocked the move and landed a punch to Clyde’s nose with a sharp crack. Clyde stumbled backwards, leaning dangerously over the balcony. But, surprisingly the Sith pulled Clyde back onto the balcony before he could fall into the battle below.
“Leave now Jedi”, said the Sith threateningly as he pointed his lightsaber at Clyde.
“I’ll leave when you’re dead”, growled Clyde.
Clyde rushed the Sith in an angry fury. The Sith countered the attack and landed a kick to Clyde’s chest. Blood trickled down Clyde’s face as his nose bled and only his will kept him standing.
I have to keep fighting
To save the Archive.
Clyde looked down at the battle below and was shocked to see the Jedi retreating to the temple exits.
“You have lost Jedi”, said the Sith,” The Empire has won this war, now you just need to give up.”
Tears ran down Clyde’s cheeks as he watched the Jedi leave the Temple. They had lost and Clyde had failed the Jedi and more importantly the Republic.
Suddenly, he jumped down from the balcony and landed with ease on the temple ground and ran through one of the exits along with the remaining Jedi.
“I will kill you Sith”, whispered Clyde as he ran,” I promise.”
Clyde is about 18 here and Imperix (who is the Sith) is about the same age.
