    Mon Cala City, Planet Mon Cala, Calamari Sector


    The Sith may have abandoned the Empire but their twisted ideals remains strong in many souls. Traveling at full speed were two large submarines from the now disbanded Imperial military advanced. Destination, the underwater capital of Mon Cala City. In the leading sub, the commander Derel Kato sat in his command seat quietly considering what was about to happen.

    Like Admiral Sozen his superior he could not accept the Empire’s disbandment. Order by many mean was necessary was to save the galaxy from itself. Thr Mon Cala people had welcomed rebellion in the past and no rejoicing at the new turn of events.

    They will pay for it. Commander Kato thought to himself, examining at the hologram map before him. They had been quite busy wiping out and villages across this region but now was the time to destroy Mon Cala City itself as ordered. Turning toward his XO standing at the right he commanded

    “Deploy all troops and the ready the guns. As soon as we're in range open fire on the city. Remember we are not to leave any survivors.”

    “Aye sir.” Was the XO’s quick response.

    Soon the pod doors on the large subs opened up. Out came mini sub fighters and armed troopers in advanced diving gear. From above they pushed forward toward the capital below. Little did the former Imperials realized that they will be more than the Mon Cala people...

    Deep below sea level, the Knightess paced around nervously in one of the small and rare oxygen-filled rooms of Mon Cala city. It fell upon her and the shoulders of her fellow Jedi, Zex Wric, to defend the capital of the planet. Word had gone out that two large submarines filled to the brim with Imperial soldiers were pillaging the depths of the Calamari sector. General Ion had quickly dispatched them, accompanied by what forces they could gather to defend the home of the brave Mon Calamari. Now accompanied by her unit, the lavender-skinned Knightess waited for the alarm to sound.

    Her hands moved over the two weapons attached to her hip, each outfitted to properly function underwater. She despised having to fight, but today there was no other option.

    "Captain Holt, you were informed of my inability to speak over commlink right?" The captain, a young man in his early 30s, nodded as the voice of the Sephi entered his mind. "I'd like you to stick closely to me during the battle. I need you to relay my orders to the rest of your troops." Her comment made the captain grin. "Was planning to stay close anyway. Increases my survival chances." he chuckled. With that settled, Sakadi looked at her unit. Brave men, both Calamari soldiers and Alliance soldiers in specialized diving suits. She wondered how many of them would survive the upcoming battle. While the former Imperials didn't know that the alliance was here, the odds were still stacked against them.

    The Knightess patiently waited for the signal, examining their holomap once again. The only way for the submarines to attack the city, was from above. The large coral formations would protect the sides of the city, as the self-proclaimed commander of the Mon cala people had explained to her. Once the submarines would be within a certain distance of the city, the signal would be given and the submarines would be trapped between two flanking teams of Alliance and Mon Cala forces, while the soldiers present in the city would keep the enemy its main force occupied. It was a simple trap, but still quite an effective one.

    Then, it happened. The alarm sounded, accompanied by bright flashes of red light and two large dots appearing on the holomap. Captain Holt moved forward, until he stood beside the Knightess. "It's time." he mumbled, clearly on edge and ready for what she assumed was his first large-scale battle. Giving a small nod as response, Sakadi dropped her cloak, revealing the tight-fitting diving suit she wore underneath. Reaching out, Sakadi summoned her diving helmet to her hand with a simple gesture. Within seconds, she and her unit were ready to move out.

    The Empire didn't know when to give up, did they? After so many of their leaders died and the last one deciding that it was not worth it, some remnants of the tyrannical empire still refused to let go, to let people be free from their iron fists. The Mon Calamari were one of many races still suffering because of them, villages being destroyed before they dared to land an attack into their capital. It was sickening, yet another reminder of why he joined the Galactic Alliance, to deal with scumbags like them.

    While his jedi partner took part of the main battle, Zex was leading the flanking forces, currently hiding before coral formations with the GA and Mon Calamari troops, wearing only the essential parts of his usual combat suit, being it the vest, the gauntlets and the boots, the only parts of his already light suit that actually protected him or had functions. Other than that? Just a simple, short swimsuit. Such were the perks of being a Nautolan, while the remnants of the empire had more men and firepower, he and the Mon Calamari had home advantage.

    His trusty blaster on hand, his eyes looking at the soldiers that were among him, he would have loved to make a great speech to hype them up, but since he decided against taking a suit, he could not talk underwater, so, instead, he simply gave a thumbs up and a wide smile that he always loved to make, a smile that said "we've got this" Something that he firmly believed. Now, the just had to wait for captain Holt to give them the order.

    Accompanied by what few soldiers Mon Cala had left after the harsh Imperial regime, Sakadi and her unit moved to intercept the Imperial forces. Looking back at the soldiers gathered behind her, the Knightess realized that this wouldn't be enough to hold them off for long. This would be a defensive battle, with their chances of victory depending on their flanking maneuver. In an eruption of light, the white blade of the Knightess ignited. Not once had she engaged in underwater combat before. No training had prepared her for this and without solid footing, she had to come up with a new tactic.

    The moment the Imperial soldiers saw the ignition of a lightsaber and recognized the advanced diving gear, they immediately opened fire. While she could tell from their force signature that the presence of the Alliance confused them, they still outnumbered the defense force. And that seemed to motivate them. Anticipating the trajectory of the first few bolts, Sakadi managed to deflect those directly aimed at her. Behind her, Captain Holt ordered his men to open fire.

    Summoning the strength of the Force, Sakadi enhanced her own body. With a few powerful strokes, Sakadi swam to intercept the first mini sub, who's blaster bolts tore straight through their line of defense. The open terrain that was the deep sea granted them no cover and as she disarmed the subfighter, the Knightess clearly saw how many casualties there were after just a few minutes. It was a cesspool of darkness, anger and adrenaline, all trapped under layers of water.

    Using the first mini sub to launch herself at the second, she called upon the force and reached out to captain Holt. "The submarines should be closing in." she stated, as she deflected yet another blaster bolt. "Give the order. Let's spring this trap"
