    Planet of Kuat

    Rai Fariz drove a borrowed speeder past another skyscraper part of the urban jungle below. To be perfectly honest he had never been to the Core Worlds until now. Yet here he was on Kuat of all places. This new job gets more interesting with each rotation. Rai concluded as he made a left turn away from a spaceport below. In the second seat to him sat his latest partner Louis Daele.

    This fellow better not be a dumbass. Thought Rai, keeping that opinion locked up for the time being. Without looking at the other human, he asked. “Louis right? Do you remember the job we’re going to do?”

    The mercenary already knew the answer, but he wanted to test how informed Louis was. It would give him an idea of what to expect from this new associate.

    After joining up with Blackwell Technologies, Louis Daele's horizon's have greatly expanded since getting out of the Exchange and being with a growing business now. And today, Louis on Kuat with fellow BIT employee Rai Fariz. Kuat is a nice planet, it's not as errie, gross, smelly and depressing looking as Nar Shaddaa. It's a modern Core World after all.

    Louis was leaning against the door on the way here, bored and looking out the skyline. Today, Louis has his usual equipment with him, and has a set of Combat Engineer Armor that he picked up from the market. Although he prefers to minimal armor if possible, the description for this task leads him to believe that there could be a big shoot out. So, he decided to be cautious and armor himself up anyways. Oh, and he also brought a carbine with him as well and two spare powerpacks for it, that would be sitting in the the borrowed speeder as well.

    When Rai addressed him, Louis started sitting straight and looked over at his partner in the driver's seat. He nodded his head in affirmed he got his name right. "Yeah. We're here to rescue a daughter from kidnappers, that we hired to kidnap and then return her safe and sound." said as a matter-of-factly, he nodded his head as he understood what he was doing here. By being the ones hiring the kidnappers, BIT has set up a situation where they can benefit from returning the daughter and killing the kidnappers to make sure they don't talk and the BIT get their credits back. It will look very good on BIT once this is done. Louis doesn't have any moral qualms with this either.

    Mildly impressed Rai gave one eye toward Louis’ direction. The fellow came prepared, that’s a good sign in his book. “That just about sums it all up.” He noted with a laugh.

    It was an efficient policy. Leave no loose ends, get pay and looking like heroes all the while. Of course the latter did not matter to Rai as that once did but he knew a good image for Blackwell meant more benefits for himself.

    This rich daughter sounds very interesting. Not too many willing to play kidnap victim. Maybe she is easy on the eyes too. The mercenary silently considered with small grin. Of course they will have to get to her first and see how things go from here.

    Wasn’t too long before Rai spotted the construction site where the kidnappers suppose to be. Descending and parking the speeder two hundred yards away, the Sahminian. Putting on his mask and helmet, finishing the look of his own armor Rai checked his blaster and gear one last time. Satisfied, he gestured to Louis, saying. “C’mon Louie boy let’s not keep our captive princess waiting.”

    Subsequently Rai got out of the speeder and closed the door behind him. Without further hesitation and griping the blaster Rai advanced toward a sewer tunnel connected to the construction site on the north side.

    Louis smiled as Rai chuckled. Now they are closing in on the construction site, Louis used this opportunity to check his weapons, both his carbine and his pistol. Everything looking good, so he's ready. "Of course" Louis smiled, looks like he's gotten a nickname 'Louie boy' already. Cool.

    Getting out of the speeder around the same time Ral did, he would go towards the sewer tunnel along with him. He would look at his surroundings to see there was anyone else around. Nothing to worry about so far. Nonetheless, Louis would see the sewer tunnel entrance, large enough for two people to go in, the entrance is dripping a green liquid. Louis would step in, then they can go from there. With this sewer route they will have a decent ways to walk; but if this works out, this sewer tunnel should let them proceed to where the kidnappers are holding up at and then take them by surprise once the blaster bolts start flying.

    Entering the tunnel Rai grew more silent and alert. Sure he loves to enjoy life and be reckless but not be complete moron about it. Raising the blaster rifle to shoulder level, Rai pressed forward in front. Always prefer going in the lead. Eyes aiming down the trigger the mercenary cautiously walked through the low water flowing underneath his feet. Finding himself in the underground complex Rai was about to move for the stair up ahead he suddenly heard something close by.

    Gesturing Louis to get down and find cover Rai swiftly followed his own advice. Hiding behind a pillar he soon make out the voices followed by footsteps through the sewage water. “Stang this sucks! Why did we get this part of the job.” An accented voice shined followed by a more, female one.

    “Just shut up and let’s get this over Dyo. The boss wants to make sure things are covered down here.”

    As the shadowy pair came closer Rai drew his vibroblade, opting for a silent kill.

    Rai had the right idea, you never know what you might find in sewer tunnels like these. To that end Louis had his weapon leveled out, being ready for anything as the two made their way forward.

    Eventually they would have company. Just as they found a stairwell to head up towards, voices of two strangers were heard. And they weren't non-involved people, they are clearly with the kidnappers with what they were saying. If they weren't they would be let go as non-threats (if they were indeed non-threats) but better to dispatch these mooks here and now.

    Louis was behind Rai so he was in a better position to hide himself around the corner from where the guy with the weird accent and the female. He also had a similar idea to Rai. No use in wasting ammo (and letting everyone here blaster bolts being fired) when a more practical weapon exists. With his vibroblade in hand, Louis would wait until the kidnapper goons get closer before making a move.

    As they come around the corner just to make sure the parameter is clear, Louis wouldn't waste any time slashing the neck of the one closest to him (the male in this case). His movements were swift and taking them by surprise would make sure they wouldn't stop him before he would kill the guy. If Rai can get the female in close succession then it would be easy and nobody would be none the wiser.

    His heart beating rapidly Rai prepared himself for what’s to come. Do not hesitate. With that thought Rai griped the blade more tightly than before. Not waiting to see what Louis does next Rai sprang forth from the other corner. The woman guard gasped but jumped back before the attacker can grab and kill her.

    Swearing she raised her blaster to shoot to him. Desperate, Rai with a kick splashed foul water in front of the hostile’s face. With a grunt the sentry lowered the weapon. Without hesitation, the Sahminain rushed her and sliced the front of the throat with the vibroblade with one swing. The blaster dropped into the water and the newly dead woman nearly did as well before Rai grabbed it. Letting the corpse down gently Rai breathed a sigh of relief

    “Too close for comfort.”

    Turning to Louis had efficiently took out his target Rai looked away, pissed at what nearly happened. To spare himself further embarrassment the mercenary. “We better keep moving. I imagine this couple will be missed sooner or later.” Not waiting for a reply Rai went on ahead further through the tunnel.

    Louis did watch as indeed Rai did take care of the woman in in close succession after he took care of the other man. With that, the flunkies down here are done and they can move on. Louis would nod in agreement in keeping on the move. Not only does he not intend to be in these smelly sewer tunnels forever, but he did raise a good point about someone wondering about their fallen comrades.

    The slicer would go up the stairs "Alright, this looks about right. Up from here. The kidnappers are expecting to meet with us to give us the daughter, and we're going to sneak up on them, surprise them and kill them and rescue the daughter." He reiterated the plan, mostly because it's a good one. The benefits of arranging this kidnapping made it to where they could place the kidnappers in a vulnerable position to take care of them and they won't even expect it. After they go up the stairs they aren't quite out of the sewers yet. They would then take a ladder once the reached a dead end from there.

    After ascending the ladder and slowly and silently sliding off the manhole cover, he would slowly raise his head and take a look at his surroundings. They are in the construction site alright as expected, close to where the kidnappers are being held up, 4 armed men, with the daughter down. on her knees blindfolded and stuncuffed. It looks like he can see them about four meters away, but there lots of cover away, and by the time the two made it all the way past the sewers the darkness has grown, so they have the twilight skies also helping them conceal their movements. "I see the target, with company"

    The Nar Shaddaa native would slide on the ground level and would get his blaster ready. With some swift movements he'd have his back to one of the duracrete pillars while facing where Rai is coming from, but only closing the distance just a little. The kidnapper goons aren't aware of any unwanted guests yet.

    In the shadows Rai let a short chuckle.The kid really wants those creds. Honestly, the mercenary couldn’t blame his younger partner. If the job goes well Rai fully intended to buy Louis a drink or two. Anyone who can eliminate a sentry efficiently and remember the objective had some common sense.

    For once Rai found himself letting the partner lead point at least for now. Following Louis, they took a set of stairs before climbing up the ladder. The Sahminain hurry as fast as possible. Time was of the essence after all. Of course after making their exit out of the manhole quietly as possible Rai examined the scene before them. There were the girl and her unwanted company. These idiots deserve to be shot if they can’t conduct a proper defense. So focused on getting paid they ignore the details.

    There was an old saying that killing fools was a favor to the universe. Determined to do the former Rai drew forth his blaster and advanced stealthily on the opposite way of Louis. The latter whom went the lower level among the pillars. Opting for the high ground behind a metal container Rai positioned himself for a shot. Whispering through the comms channel he said to Louis.

    “As soon as I take the first shot, toss a flashbang at the fools.”

    Done Rai aimed down the barrel at the farthest goon on the right-hand side. Softly he squeezed the trigger and fired. Instantly the bolt flew forth and struck the guard in the left shoulder. With a cry of pain the hostile fell much to the collective shock of his comrades.

    Gil had come merely as a backup, letting the other two take point. He sat perched on the roof of a nearby building. He held looked through the sights of the long-range blaster. It wasn't quite what a marksman would use but it would get the job done today.

    He listened through the comms as the two chatted. He pulled out his phone, flipping through things until he heard the group was approaching. He slipped the phone back in a pocket and began scanning as the group approached.

    He scanned the windows of the buildings to each side, noting the curtains shifting as the group approached. He watched intently, seeing the subtle glint of a reflection. "Looks like they brought back up too. They have at least one in the building to your left. he said.

    Gil trained his sights on that window and shot the instant he heard Rai's shot. The bolt flew through the open window and Gil saw the figure fall backward. He continued to scan to see if there were others as the fight broke out below
