    Nubia​

    The shuttle flew over the city, carrying the two Jedi that had come to help bring an end to violent protest that had broken out over the city. When the Empire had pulled out, the people had been emboldened to rise up against what they viewed were unfair work conditions. The protests had spread quickly and then turned violent. Both sides had become entrenched in their views, both sides were convinced they were in the right.

    The Alliance had offered to help mediate and bring stability back to the system. So Firen had come when he was asked. These were the types of missions he had gone one with his Master quite often, he remembered them being so boring. His whiskers twitched slightly as he thought of her, captured, gone, likely dead. He had tried to save her, but she had told him to go, made him. None of it brought him comfort, he had failed her but she would want him to do this.

    He looked over the Jedi Master who had asked him to come. He was familiar with Arda, they had run into one another back before he even knew what a Jedi was. That seemed like such a long time ago, an entire lifetime. He had grown as a Jedi, promoted to Knight. He didn't feel ready."Looks bad down there." he said looking out the window, seeing the rows of riot police lining up to face the horde of protesters outside the building where the meeting would take place.

    "This could all go up flames at any second..." he said straightening his robes, checking to make sure his Lightsaber was still there. He had finished constructing his own, a hilt actually made for his small hands. He had trained the lightsaber his Master had given him, but it was too heavy and large for him. This one was easier to use but felt weird to him.

    The shuttle made its final approach, the lawn of the government building the meeting was being held in. Protestors threw any items they could at the shuttle, a glass bottle broke on the window next to Arda's seat.

    Arda looked as though she were peacefully in meditation, though, she knew at least this was one of the only times she could find a moment to close her eyes and drift ever so close to sleep before having to return to her duties of Alliance Commander. She heard Firen speak as they arrived to the site of protests on Nubia; it had been ages since she spent time with him and was excited to be teaming up with the fuzzy rabbit in order to complete this task. Not to mention, she was glad someone was coming with her, this would be one of her first negotiations since leading the Alliance and she was more uncertain now than any time in her life.

    The Jedi opened her eyes and looked down through the window at the protests, there were many bodies shouting at one another, waving signs, and even throwing objects. The woman pursed her lips together in thought, "We'll most likely put out this one and another one will sprout, but we still have to try." she told him as the shuttle landed. However, as they waited for the area to clear, protesters started throwing things, startling the Jedi Master as a bottle hit the window next to her. She stood up, chin up, ready to face the disillusioned workers of Nubia. They were going to meet the representatives, some from the unions and another from the corporations which wanted productions to resume; in this time, she knew the workers were not getting paid and the others were losing money, but to find a middle ground where everyone will be content would be ideal in this situation.

    A rodian flanked by guards quickly ran to shuttle to escort the jedi inside, "Come with me, they're waiting inside." he said leading the way.

    Firen had a look of concern on his face as they stepped down the exit ramp of the ship, hearing the sounds of the nearby protests. Anger and pain pushed against his mind. He had grown more and more sensitive to such things over his years of training but still struggled to control the flood of senses.

    The Rodian approached, staying low as of to not present too big a target. The aide was surrounded by a small contingent of guards and obviously had some fear for his life. The two Jedi followed, Firen using the Force to stop a bottle hurled at the group as the crossed the lawn heading towards the squat government building.

    The aid breathed a sigh of relief as they entered the foyer of the building. Guards took up positions inside and outside the door as it was secured. "Thank you for coming. As you can see, the situation is quite dire." The aide said as he ushered them further in the building.

    "Can I get either of you anything before you go inside." The rodian asked as they arrived at a large, ornate wooden door. Firen shook his head no before the Rodian looked to Arda.

    They were then ushered in the room. As soon as the door cracked, the sounds of yelling voices flooded out into the hallway. There was a group of about twenty people. Each half trying to about down the other.

    Firen looked up and gave Arda a look of concern, seeing how she wanted to handle the situation.

    When they entered the meeting room, they were offered refreshments but like Firen, Arda denied the offer also and went inside the room to wait for the others to arrive. Firen looked up at the woman and she looked down with also a concerned look; she breathed in deeply and let out a long exhale, "We will need to listen carefully, to make sure everyone gets a fair deal out of this." she explained to Firen with a reassuring nod. She walked around the table slowly, feeling the waves in the Force; they wouldn't have to wait long as the door opened again and several representatives entered inside, taking a seat at the table.

    Arda followed, taking a seat, a spot left open for Firen to sit also next to her; she could feel all eyes on them as the room feel quiet, the shouts from the protests loudly heard outside building. Arda though, could feel their doubt, the Jedi have just only resurfaced in the last year or so, perhaps they believed them to be impostors, an extremist group lead by the Sith, but Arda gave them the benefit of the doubt.

    She looked at all the faces around them before speaking, "Gentlemen, thank you for letting us help you today, I hope we can come to a middle ground that will be not only beneficial to the workers, but to you also." she started.
