Waking from a deep sleep an old beast master turned sith lord yells "WHY NOW". Nobody answers, who would, the sith hermit hasn`t seen anyone in years. Everyone he loved or knew died or turned on him long before he went into exile on tatooine. Remembering this he says "One more day to mark down, one less to live" pausing in thought he remarks saying "If this is living". He thinks of those who he sent to this fate as punishment or to save from an agonizing death then wondering if this is the revenge of those that died like this. Reaching out with all the force strength he has, or what remains of it to say "I`m sorry". The pain is what keeps his strength in the force going these days. He reaches for a picture on his nightstand, it`s a family picture with him his wife and kids. With sorrow, remorse for what happened all those years ago he started weeping softly and slowly said their names "Vette" "Draco" "Trin". The last time he say them was during that last battle he fought in, the one in the empty space just outside the galaxy. Vette had been fatality wounded, But Draco and Trin were still fighting until everything went dark. Someone came up from behind and knocked him out. When coming to he was faced with an alien leader of some species he didn`t recognize. As far as he knew the kids were still alive somewhere, but after this unknown race took over he couldn`t stay were they could find him. About a month after, being captured or what he thought was a month he managed to escape with on of their ships. he didn`t want to take the chance that they could track the ship so he headed towards Domund Kaas to "acquire" a new ship that he could take to Tatooine. he knew that whatever this race was that they were well beyond the capabilities of the Empire, Republic and Zakuul... to be continued...

... With impending doom always around the corner the dark lord hurried to the jungles just outside the city in search of a ship that wouldn`t be marked by the guards at the spaceport. Assuming there were any left that hadn`t been seized or destroyed. He made his way to the various camps that usually had a ship landed nearby, but most had been abandoned with the ships lost in what seemed to be enough damage to call a war at each site. "Nobody even stood a chance" he said with an unusual calm for the circumstances. With no luck in the jungle he knew he had to make his way to the port and make his way to a ship that was getting ready to leave in the hopes that he could highjack it when in orbit or deep space. Either way he needed a way off world and away from any planet that would draw significant attention. *THUD* he snaps back into his moment of old age, not sure how long he had been in the flashback, or if this is just a dying man reliving his life one memory at a time. Seeing as how he hasn`t felt right for a few months, with the bouts of chronic throbbing headaches and nausea things have been going down hill for him. He starts to feel his end may be nearing, yet feels it has been a long time coming. Suddenly seeing two middle aged people in his doorway and realizing that must have been what had snapped out of his thoughts. One was a Zabarak male who looks like a mirror image of his younger self. The other was a Twi`lek female, the two reminded him of his children. He remembered how he met the kids, it was shortly after a battle when they found a group of orphaned kids. He and Vette had taken some in and raised them as their own. It was the closest thing to biological kids each would get given their different races. after a few seconds the man says "I`m Draco and this is Trin. We`re looking for our father, he goes by Lord Dragon. With his heart beating with enough excitement to tear itself apart he manages to respond with "That would be me". He realizes that the two in front of him are his children, and they likewise realize this is their father. They can tell he is close to death in his frail state. Trin pulls out a medical probe and says "let me get you checked out. While the probe is working they take some time to reminisce and catch up on what has happened. Draco mentions that a few month after Dragon`s capture they managed to convert a few powerful allies from this unknown race and push them to the edge of the galaxy. Soon after the story Dragon can feel his heart stop, which sends everyone and they droid into a panic when they realize what is going on. When an old familiar sense of calm washes over dragon and he tries to tell them it is his time. He struggles for air gasping he manages to say "i`m sorry".
