    Zarballa watched as the flashing lights, disappeared from the viewports of his VT-1100 and the great round orb of the planet Utapau filled most of his view. Only a few ships appeared to be near by when he dropped out of hyperspace, late afternoon seemed to be a quiet time for the planets capital as he moved his ship into a decent through the atmosphere. Steering through the clouds, a red light flashed on his console, tapping it with clawed finger, the sound of the local air traffic controller came through the speaker above his seat. "Approaching VT-1100, please state your business in Pau." Flipping a switch Zarballa responded, "uughghhhgh uughguughhhghghghhhgh uugggh awwgggghhh." The traffic controller appeared a little stunned, the line crackling as he tried to figure out the translation. As the seconds ticked up Zarballa began to grumble. Eventually after around twenty seconds the traffic controller spoke, "Ummm, Ok, please land at pad seven." Zarballa barked a quick reply before closing the line.

    He piloted the ship into the space, guided by lights onto the relatively large landing pad. A large bump and the hiss of hydraulics signalled the ship touching down, flipping more switches he powered down the ship's engines followed by its main power core. The hyperdrive was due a service, its light flashing continuously in the corner of his eyes, the number of lightyears put on the drive since his acceptance into the Jedi Order dramatically continuing. Getting out of his chair, he grunted at the light before moving over to a small lockbox at the back of the cockpit, turning it out onto the co-pilot chair he rummaged through the hydrospanners, spare wires, lubricant and odd screws and pulled out some black tape. Ripping off a large section, he walked back to the service light and placed the black tap over the flashing red bulb. Huffing at the light he turned away and made for the exit ramp. He slipped a small metal cover on his bandolier open and slid his double bladed lightsaber away and out of view. His A10, hung near the ramp, clipping it onto his belt as he exited the ship, trudging across the pad, he was met by a group of Utai who were carrying fuel lines. "wuuh huurh" he called at them as politely as he could in Shyriiwook, the group of three Utai just stared at him a look of fear on their faces, before he waved them gently towards the ship.

    Zarballa made his way from the landing pad and through the customs and security checks which allowed him out into the capital city proper. He made good time through security, as polite as he tried to be he seemed to scare most of the civil servants so they allowed him through as quickly as they could. Stepping out into the light shinning down from the planets Sun, he wondered where is colleague was, they had been tasked with protecting a local member of the Banking Clan who was under threat from jealous rivals. A good as job as any for a Jedi Padawan, he thought to himself.

    The light came on again. It was that light that most people did not know what it meant. But Brent paid it no mind since he knew his XS-100 was doing well for the most part. It felt worn, but it was reliable. Descending on the planet he hit some turbulence and it made him jiggle in his seat a little. Then when he checked the dashboard again the light had gone away. All things seemed to work out for him.

    Utapau, a planet of holes. The prospect made his immature mind chuckle at all the waiting jokes to be made. He was supposed to be meeting up with a fellow rebel, or rather a fellow jedi padawan. Brent did not really introduce himself as a padawan to most people. He was more rebellious that he was...padawanious. Eventually coming down he parked the vessel on a safe landing pad. Coincidentally it was just one over from Zarballa.

    Seeing the man, er wookiee male, Brent walked towards him with no shortage of pep in his step. As soon as he saw the profile of Zarballa he raised a hand to wave at him. “Heyo! What’s up my brother from another mother?”

    Zarballa felt as if he waited a full day for the human to turn up, he watched the people walk by one by one, wondering if one of them was his republic contact. In the distance the sounds of Utapau's great birds and lizards echoed across the walls of the giant Sinkhole that Pau City resided in. Finally the human appeared, he seemed happy, overly so, which Zarballa was not sure how to take. Most of the Galactic Alliance members he had met, had been somber characters, years of struggle taking the vibrant edge off their personalities. He huffed a little as the man approached, turning to face him as he walked up to him, the Wookiee looked down at the man and gave an awkward and perhaps vicious looking smile in attempt to mimic the man's apparent nature. "huurh" He replied in greeting.

    Turning away to face the direction the information from the Galactic Banking Clan had given them, he pointed, gesturing for the human to lead the way. The Wookiee had already caused a commotion coming through one building and hovering at the edge of the spaceport had gotten him more strange looks than he had expected. "uughguughhhghghghhhgh huuguughghg aarrragghuuhw aaaaahnr uugggh uughguughhhghghghhhgh uuh raaaaaahhgh uughghhhgh huuguughghg huuguughghg" He asked as they walked, he suspected that the Human knew Shyriiwook due to him being assigned with the Padawan, but was not one hundred percent confident, the mistake had been made in the past.

    The obvious point helped Fury head towards their designated meeting place with the local officials. He began walking and then a series of barks and growls made him stop and turn around. For a moment he wondered if there was some local Utapau fauna that had been making that noise and then he remembered his partner was a wookiee. The Drast just stared at him blankly for a moment.

    "Say that again. I think I missed it. Something about leaving a stove on?" Wookiees were not especially scary to him. In combat sure, the threat of his arms getting pulled of was unnerving but he knew Zarballa was not that type of wookiee. Then again he did not know the furry padawan very well. As if to question Zarballa's very core character he cocked an eyebrow but then dismissed it as quickly as it had come. "meh, whatever. Let's walk and talk. So tell me...stuff...I guess."
