    Dennys had never seen so many Jedi relics in one room before. As they had gone down the staircase after beating the Force Apparition, the man wondered what else could possibly be hidden beneath the foundations of the old Jedi Temple. Had this been a place for forbidden or incredibly valuable relics? That would explain why the Jedi had tried to slip in and activated the guardians, wanting to get what they could and escape before the Empire even knew they were there. It was funny how Dennys' desire to create a legacy had found this plot in the middle of it's execution. Now would be time for a different type of execution.

    The sounds of the working men and the Jedi Master could be heard from further in the room. Teal lighstaber in hand, Dennys nudged Kal gently and pointed to a nearby bench with some parts on it. He knew what they were, holocron materials. That's what he'd originally come for, though from a different location in the Temple. He didn't say anything as the look in his eyes should have been enough, that they could complete all their goals in one fell swoop. He gathered the Force around him as he waited to get Kal's back. It was time to kick some ass and make the future theirs, not left in the hands of a decaying Order.

    They'd finally arrived. This was what they had been after this entire time, and it frustrated Kravos that things had gone so roughly for him thus far. He wasn't going to let these Jedi get away with what they were doing or rob him of what he was here for. These Jedi had already taken enough from him, and he wouldn't let them take any more.

    His saber hummed in his hand. Its familiar weight was always a relaxing feeling in any situation like this, and it was no exception now. Even when the Light Side of the Force seemed to resist him down here, there was his saber. In fact, that caused him to wonder if the Force itself was what had worked against him with the Guardian above. Perhaps his own immersion in the Darkness robbed him of his power here.

    Whatever the answer, he wasn't going to let it stand in his way now.

    Abruptly, the Jedi Master stopped what he was doing, stiffening and turning around. I can sense you there. The creeping darkness. Why don't you show yourself? he said. His words caused the others in the room to stop as well, but they weren't as much of an issue as the Jedi was. He was the only one in the room of true power, and would need to be addressed quickly and efficiently.

    As soon as the Jedi stepped into view, Dennys didn't hesitate. Gripping his lightsaber like a javelin, he hurled the blade even as the first hooded man turned the corner. With the added speed of the Force added to the throw, the blazing projectile managed to slash through the hooded Jedi's chest, though the man's own reflexes saved him from death but left him with a critical burning slash across the chest. With a pull Dennys retrieved his lightsaber while the man was still stunned from the attack, his hood falling away. The sight of that face underneath almost caused the veteran to drop his weapon. He hadn't been expecting such a blast from the past. Finally turning the corner, his own lightsaber in his hand, Jedi Master Arthur Gawanhyte practically sneered at his former pupil.

    "That a child like you could take me by surprise, I suppose miracles DO happen. I didn't know you were still alive, Vancent. You and the rest of those children were supposed to die so that your betters in the Order could carry on, yet I see that you failed even at that task." He lit his lightsaber, using some of the Force to block out the pain of his injury so he could fight. "And you brought a friend. Kal Vox, I haven't seen you since the trial here all those years ago, when you turned traitor. I was powerless then, just like Fennex and Wyck. Now, though, I've made sure to get quite a bit stronger to take you down. Gregorio, bring me this traitor's head and I'll guarantee a seat on the Council." The other Jedi who had stepped out, a human with bulging muscles and shaved head, ignited his lightsaber with a grim but hungry look in his eyes. In the back the sound of work could be heard, the workers still gathering the artifacts.

    Kravos didn't know whoever this was standing in front of him, and despite him apparently knowing Kravos and Dennys, perhaps that said something about the man. He'd been at the trial? Many people had, and most of them were dead and even more were irrelevant. Evidently, this man fell into the latter category and would soon fall into the former.

    The Dark Lord didn't bother with a retort, but pulled the Force to himself. Even as he did so, he could feel the Light in this place resisting him. His enemy here wasn't just these Jedi, but the power of the temple itself. It resisted, refusing to bend for him as he was suddenly put back on the defensive.

    The burst of flame he was planning never came, and the Dark Lord was forced to bring his saber up, blocking the blaster bolts from some of the mercenaries now coming against him. He was forced further on the defensive and abandoned the attack altogether, moving forward quickly but not attempting a follow up attack yet. Instead, he decided that if the Force was working against him, it was time to corrupt it at bit. He let his own growing anger and the memory of the trial pollute the Force itself as he drew the attention of the Jedi away from Dennnys to hopefully allow him the opportunity to attack. @Insalius

    In an instant Dennys relived his earliest days. At the background of all his memories, his forced seclusion in the temple, the fights against the Exiles alongside his other child soldiers, there was Arthur's face. To the rest of the Order he was a silent man, seemingly kind and unremarkable to the point of being forgettable. The children knew the truth, though. They could hear his real goals, to become a Councilor, the Grandmaster even, by manipulating everyone so subtly to get there. A word here, an action there, working on the subconscious of others to ingratiate himself. To that end, he also had to do enough to keep him in his position. That's why he handled the children and their training. He would do what he could to make them successful warriors, yet not TOO successful. He'd train a few to be combat machines, such as Dennys, but others he would leave gaps for them to either fall to the Dark Side or fall in battle. It was how he kept himself below the radar while also keeping his children under his thumb.

    Then it had happened, when Dennys decided to leave the Jedi yet not fall to the Dark Side. He'd been sent to go kill his best friend, who had just also left the Jedi Order. He wasn't becoming an Exile, though, he just had taken enough of Arthur's manipulations. He knew that Dennys was one of Arthur's pet projects and didn't hold back. Both boys had tears in their eyes, fighting through the shards of their shattering dreams of a world outside of war. Then the grenade went off, neither having known who had triggered it as they rolled around in the mud and blood. His friend had died, always wanting to know what a world without war looked like. He wanted to see all the places a normal boy could, then he breathed his last. That had been Dennys' dream as well, now he would live it for the both of them. At the time, he could only think of how happy Arthur would have been knowing they both had died. Of course he'd live this long as well.

    "What's the matter, Vancent? Surprised to see me? It seems like your backup isn't doing well in this place. The fact that Ossus fell was a fluke, see how it rejects your dark friends even now." The blond man sneered as he walked forward, lightsaber in hand as his chest still smoldered from the previous hit. "Your death was too...nebulous, shall we say. I couldn't trust you or the other children anymore, so when Ilum happened, I made sure they were on planet in the thickest of the fighting. They died, every one. Took a good number of the enemy, yet thanks to Syresh none of that mattered. They died for nothing. It was like they were never there. Now all that needs to happen is for you and Kal to die here and I can start my hard work to regain my prestige. Do be a dear boy and die."

    As Arthur spoke, something clicked inside of Dennys' mind and soul. He remembered all the old faces, the dreams they shared and the pain they helped each other comfort away. He remembered further, from his first Exile friends to when he first met Alais and the others. Every person that had died over his entire life, every person he cared for, it all mixed with the memories of his travels and experiences. There was the good and the bad, all pulling together into the same place. He'd had the most attachments out of everyone he knew, their passion for life and the pain of their passing now coalescing into his usual control of the Force. He pulled on that raw power like he had never done before, taking a page from Kal's book and quickly igniting the flames on Arthur's chest from the previous lightsaber hit. As the man cried out in pain, Dennys leapt forward, channeling all that power into his fists.

    "NO MORE!!" The haymaker that Dennys threw hit Arthur in the jaw, the enhanced strength sending him flying back into a wall. Dennys kept up with him, the Dark Side flowing through him as he became the instrument of his lightsaber's name, The Black Wolf of Desire. All the pain, the joy, the sorrow, the love, everything that made him feel alive flowed through his fist. On the heels of his own power, though, was the echo of the hopes and dreams of all the fallen that he kept in his heart. "YOU AND THE JEDI WILL NEVER HURT ANYONE ELSE!!" The uppercut to the gut not only forced the air from Arthur's lungs but also broke his ribs, perhaps even cracking his spine from the impact. The man was lifted up and thrown back towards a workbench covered in sharp kyber crystals ready to be used to make lightsabers.

    Somehow Arthur was able to get back to his feet, yet that was the mistake that would cost him his life. In a seeming flash Dennys was behind him, between the Jedi and the workbench, and the Sith wrapped his arms around the waist of his former Master. "APOLOGIZE TO THE OTHERS IN HELL!!" With all the strength he could muster, still bolstered by the desires of the fallen combined with his own, Dennys gave a bestial howl as he threw himself back in the strongest suplex he could muster. "WASZYLLA FINISHING STRIKE!! BLACK LUCEID!!!"

    The crash that rang out was titanic, Arthur's face being thrown with the force of the living and the dead right onto the sharp kyber crystals. They pierced his face, eyes, neck, all before he broke the durasteel workbench and was planted in the ground. Unlike the Dullahan above, the ground didn't yield before his chest cavity did, which was the only place the ruined head could go. The Dark side swirled around Dennys as he stood up, taking out a beer from his fanny pack and popping the top. "This is for the fallen, you piece of shit." He glared at the body as he poured the alcohol in the collapsed neck cavity of the former Jedi Master, giving respect to everyone who died from the man's machinations. The galaxy was a bit of a better place now. The children could finally be safe.

    Darth Kravos didn't stand idly by. He could tell that the Jedi Master was getting under the skin of the Sith Master, but it quickly became clear that that was a bad idea. Kravos continued to deflect the blaster bolts away deftly. The saber slashed the plasma bolts out of the air and into the ground and walls. In a split second, he charged forward, pounding his saber down on the other Jedi Knight, but it was blocked.

    So Kravos adapted. He pressed down with the strength of the Force, shoving his own blade over his opponent's and plunging it into the man's throat. It was quick and effective. With both Jedi out of the way, that left the pair of Sith to deal with the mercenaries who seemed to have abandoned packing up in favor of firing on the Sith.

    Good kill, he told Dennys, not having time to say much more as he stepped in to provide cover to his partner and give him more room to attack their enemies. Teamwork was the only way to win out against greater numbers. @Insalius
