Remi AU: Knightless - Deadly Sins & Seven Virtues
Sith Warrior/JK Chapter 3 Spoilers
Darth Baras paced, his movement betraying his excitement. He looked down at his prize. The tall Voss knelt staring up at his captor, his pupil-less red gaze might have been unnerving to a lesser man, but Baras was supremely confident. This was a moment of triumph, one of many to come.
“You will be bestowed with a great honor this day, Mystic.” He taunted. He had put up with a great deal of nonsense in order to obtain his prize.
“I am aware of what is to come.” The man said calmly.
“You were aware of this?” The Sith scoffed, “You knew today would be your last and you came anyway? Don’t bother lecturing me about your visions. I have seen my victory, it is certain.”
“Perhaps you see as Mystics do,” the Voss agreed, “but only interpreters can find meaning. You seek to claim everything for yourself, this does not concern me. My vision is clear. I must be here for the one to complete her training.”
Baras was tempted to strike the man but he feared damaging his gift. An attendant entered the room, bowing in the doorway.
“My lord, you have been summoned.”
The Sith leaned down placing his cold grey mask next to the Voss’s ear, his voice dripped with malice, “Just as I have foreseen.”
Scourge walked briskly back to his quarters, the Emperor had summoned him for the third time in as many weeks. He wore the body of a strange blue alien and announced that he would be going on a pilgrimage alone. It was unusual but no cause for particular alarm, what sent his mind racing was the Emperor’s words, that his goals were close at hand, and the ritual had already begun. Then the Emperor turned fixed his soulless gaze directly on him and asked after his apprentice.
Coremi was on Belsavis and the Emperor knew. He could not warn her, his communications would be monitored, if he left it would be suspect, and he would be watched, possibly stopped or shot down. The Emperor was known for testing his servants, even ones as trusted as he. Yet, she was there, on the very planet where the sacrifice would take place. It could not be a coincidence.
He knelt, channeling the Force, he rarely felt the need to meditate, but now he closed his eyes and reached into the swirling maelstrom of the Force searching for a familiar presence. His instincts led him through the chaos, sensing dozens of distant minds, he ignored them striving to find the mind he recognized as hers. He found her, a single soul in the storm. A ball of brilliant light with threads of darkness swirling through it, it pulsed with power even greater than he had seen in her before.
He thought irrelevantly before he focused on reaching out to her. He sensed her surprise then a joy she could not hide in this form.
The ritual has begun.
He focused on his message.
You must stop Krannus from destroying the planet. Save Belsavis.
He sensed confusion, fear, then resolve. He let go and retreated to himself.
He opened his eyes certain that she had heard his message. She would stop the ritual and save the planet, now all he could do was wait.
