Civil wars, such a tumultuous event to grip and throw a world into chaos, and sometimes even an entire Galaxy! But the events on Axxila when compared to the great Civil war that broke out a few centuries past, pale in comparison, the riots and discourse that was breaking out on Axxila were for the best part a mere tussle in a bar on comparison - Yet within the chaos there is the opportunity for progress, whether it was for the betterment of the inhabitants and citizens of the world, or for the Sith time would ultimately tell, but from the standpoint of the Sith lord, regarding the planet through the view port of the ship's bridge - the world would ultimately bend to the Sith Order's will.

The disgraced former Prime Minister of the world, by the name of Honkam Ten - in a desperate attempt to hold onto his power, reached out to the Sith Order seeking their aid and support, pledging his support for the growing Sith Territories. The Sith lord's lips pursed in thought as she continued to stare out towards the growing orb, wondering whether the former prime minister, and his making a deal with the proverbial Devil, had fully understood just what consequences that deal would bring. After all whilst the Sith Eternal had granted their support, it was by no means a guarantee that the disgraced prime minister would hold onto his position once the world had Declared their allegiance to the Sith, they were after all less forgiving for failures.

A wry smirk curled on the blonde's lips as the thought crossed her mind, that perhaps the Honkam Ten would come to realise that he would undoubtedly have been better off in taking the prison sentence in the long run, his Life would undoubtedly be much longer. Though perhaps his fate would be less uncertain when compared to that of the current Prime Minister, Siz Vhis. Whilst the disgraced Honkam Ten had reached out to the Sith, the current Prime Minister had reached out for aid. A world caught up in the brink of Civil war often sound themselves in a fair predicament, as many worlds would not recognise them as a State until the Civil war had come to its conclusion. Something that the Sith Lord was presently travelling to do, the plan was two fold, She would travel and meet the sitting prime minister within her political capacity - whilst two others would travel separately to the prison complex where Honkam Ten was being detained.

Stepping away from her viewing point, the blonde left the bridge of the ship, headed to her own private quarters and sealing the chambers behind her. With a wave of her hand over a antique looking container, the Sith manipulated the Force bound locks concealed within the container releasing the mechanisms and allowing it to open, revealing the mask of Darth Ceryx. Closing her eyes, the Sith lord pulled the helmet over her head, before draping herself within her black hooded cloak and then proceeding to open a secure and encrypted channel to the Sith controlled ship that she trusted would soon be dropping out of hyperspace - so that she can relay the instructions to the Sith Operatives that would be running parallel to her own actions.



Marauder LeAnna, Agent Ragnarsson.

Your operation will be a simple one. When you arrive at the Prison complex located at the transmitted co-ordinates, you will infiltrate the complex, seek out the disposed former Prime Minister Honkan Ten and his associates. Liberate them from their confines and all those who are loyal to his regime. As to how you achieve this it matters not, only that you ensure Honkan Ten's Survivial so that he can declare this world for the Sith Eternal.

May the Force Serve you well.

Axxila descended into chaos. The kind of violent revolution that bred all manner of exciting opportunities. Charlotte had been embedded on the planet for several days. She fit in nicely with the rebellious locals. Even a civil war needed a few pretty faces, and she was more than happy to play the part. The Order was waiting for the perfect time to strike. The unrest provided a lovely opportunity to turn Axxila in their favor. She simply awaited instruction. Her com buzzed happily. Charlotte waiting until she was alone to receive the message. Darth Ceryx delivered her mission. A jail break…how fun. She quickly replied. “Your will…my hands.” It would be done.

The Hapan Sith spent the better part of the rest of the day trekking to the transmitted coordinates. She was meant to join at least one other operative. She dressed in lithe armor, her saber clipped to her belt. There was no need for the flowing robes and dramatic effects. This was about practicality. The faster and quieter they were in and out, the better. Charlotte had gathered enough information to understand Honkan Ten was under heavy guards as were his associates. It would not be so easy to simply walk in and take him.

The success of their mission was predicated on avoiding the majority of the heavily armed guards. She had no idea what Darth Ceryx would be doing while she risked her life, she assumed it was very important. Charlotte crossed her arms and waited. Where her pal?

From the cells, to a war. Hrothgar Ragnarrson, born a slave and molded into a Gladiator Champion. He had earned his freedom through blood and sweat, and owed his life to Hrist, his freedom. He had spent the months since his freedom, getting acquainted with the galaxy. The man would learn to read, to speak, so as to not be a lesser in the eyes of his comrades. He had heard horror stories of the evils of the Sith, but surprisingly worlds under their control thrived.

Was he a villain? Or was he a hero? It was a question he often pondered, knowing that he himself held no control over that. The victor of the war would decide what he was, and that had given him some form of peace. Normally serving as his Lady's protector, he was loathe to be sent elsewhere while she was in harms way. But orders were to be followed. And for some reason, the Sith needed him here on Axxila.

The mountain of a man had never met either Sith he would be working with, he only knew that by rank, they were above him. It was something he was used to, so the transition would not be too hard, for as a slave, everyone was his better. Not anymore. Clad in the very gear he wore in the pits, Hrothgar would trek through various ranges before he came to the meeting location. The Sith were zealots who worshipped the Force, as a Deucalian, he worshipped Old Gods, and it was them who would keep him safe in the battles ahead. He didn't know much of their mission save that he was a hammer, and if the Sith wanted him there, it was to do as he did best, and break things.

With his torso bare, save for the pauldron and the harness, each of his tattoos and carvings, all traditional Deucalian were on display. His axe was tucked away in its loop, bouncing harmlessly against his back as he made his way down to the rendevous. He had listened to the comm, but never sent a reply back, it was one of those skills he had yet to master. There would be some surprise on his face when he happened upon his contact: Charlotte LeAnna. The woman was petite and clad in very lithe armor, something not so extravagant that he had expected a Sith to wear. Now came one of his greatest confusions: to address her as Lord? or Lady? He could never remember what the Sith preferred, so he decided to let her introduce herself before he got onto the wrong foot. He made sure his approach was slower, as if to not alarm her, though the sigil of the Sith had been emblazoned on his pauldron to mark him as a friend.

With the transmission sent and channel closed, the Sith lord proceeded to remove the visage of her Darth status, returning it back to it's container, followed by her hooded cloak before sealing the container once again with the Force. Her eyes narrowing as the ship shuddered signifying it's entry into the planet's atmosphere. Soon it will be time, the Sith mused to herself as she started to tidy up her appearance, ensuring that she carried the dignitary that styling that as expected of someone in her position as a planetary governor.

With a light hiss the doors to the Governor's compartment slid open, revealing the Sith lord dressed in her political dignitary attire, adorned with the trappings of her status within the Bakuran society. Rather than returning to the Bridge, the blonde made her way through the ship, headed towards the passenger hall to meet with her security detail, a collection of helmeted figures dressed in rich navy hued fatigues and cloak, accompanied with a matching glossy helmet and each armed with long barrelled and bayonetted blaster rifles - reminiscent of the styling of the Senate Guard of the former Republic prior to the clone wars. A dull thud could be heard as they stood to attention upon the Sith's entry into the room, eliciting a nod before her gaze moved towards the guard approaching her.

"Governor, The Men have been fully briefed and stand ready" the captain spoke as he came to a standstill, the blonde nodding for a moment before her gaze moved away to view the rest of the small detachment. "And the preparations for the meetings conclusion?" Alyse inquired as her attention returned to the captain, who let slip a slight smirk from the cut out of his helm. "All preparations have been made, and are ready for your execution" he confirmed with a final nod before taking a step back. "Very good, then shall we proceed?" the governor replied, before watching as the guards filled into position and paced their way through to the loading ramp, with the blonde following close behind.

Not long after the ship had finally touched down, the boarding ramp soon ground it's way open before extending out towards the surface of the landing pad. The guard's marching out in two single columns and stood ready at the foot of the ship as the Governor stepped off the ship herself. Her eyes panning over the surroundings of the capital city, towering plumes of smoke could be seen rising in the near distance, echoing sounds of discontent and protests resonating from the surroundings - the Sith lord kept a neutral expression on her features as she continued. The swirling rage that surrounded her, made the Dark side palpable somewhat prime and open for manipulation.

Pacing along the path headed towards the main governmental building where her scheduled meeting with Siz Vhis was to take place, her chestnut hued eyes catching sight through the gaps between her guard detail - the gathered mob and protestors that lined the barricades, placards, banners of varying support and opposition for both the former and the current prime minister. Closing her eyes, the blonde reached out with the Force, darkening the air, heightening the anger between the two parties that were separated by the barricaded street, further riling them up - long enough until her eyes opened to meet the sight of the Duros Prime Minister, as he approached from the entrance of the building ahead - his movements accompanied by both cheers and boos , words of support and of course words of hatred.

"Governor Ti-Varnus, Thank you for coming. My Appologies for the mixed reception, as you know we stand on a knife edge" the Duros spoke, as he bowed his head in greeting before offering his hand to the blonde. "No Apologies necessary, Prime Minister" Alyse spoke as she returned the gesture in kind, offering a slight smile. "Shall we?"

Charlotte’s pretty face was marred by a deep frown. Of course, when the mission was inconspicuous in nature she was paired with the exact opposite. She shook her head in disbelief. “We are trying not to draw attention…apparently only I received the memo.” The galaxy agreed, Charlotte’s personality was generally awful. She clicked her tongue in disgust. “I’m Charlotte and we better get started before someone spots you.” The Darkness quickly burst alive in her chest, spreading out between the two Sith. Her mind touched the bearded man. She felt nothing. Great. Her mystery partner was dressed poorly and could not hear the call of the Dark. She repressed a sigh.

The Darkness coiled around them both, dampening the natural sounds around them. She quietly climbed the hill they stood behind. Crouching when she reached the top. The complex was surrounded by a wall, spotlights, and a significant gap between that wall and the structure of the prison. Her frown deepened. Charlotte quickly smoothed out her face. She did not want wrinkles. “We’ll need a distraction.” Her eyes scanned the field before them.

“They’ll see us in a second without one...and I have no appetite to face off against an entire barracks.” She tapped the saber swinging from her hip. “It would be unfortunate if the greater population knew who saved the Prime Minister.” The roar of repulsor engines snapped her head around. A transportation convoy was approaching the main prison gates. Now that could be a lovely distraction. She wondered what fun the convoy held.

Where the galaxy agreed, Hrothgar would be rather amused. She was infact, the only one that really knew what they were there to do, so the agent would just follow her lead, simple as that. He'd even bow his head at her given name. "Hrothgar, lead on, Lord."

As she spoke, he would watch their surroundings, gaze focused on the guards who had yet to spot them. Distraction? He could very much do those. Following her gaze to the roar of repulsor engines he'd begin to move towards them. "We will have to be quick then. What do you have in mind for them?" Stealth. Which meant no battle cries or loud noises. Just good ol'fashioned bladework, he could work with that.

Stepping through the large halls of the governmental building, the blonde governor elected to remain silent as the party moved through the main foyer of the building, and headed towards the lift platform, the group filing in with the Prime minister and the Bakuran Governor entering first, followed by their respective guard details. As the lift commenced it's ascent, the blonde turned her attention to the Duro's Prime Minister and broke the silence. "So how long has the discourse been gripping the capital?" Alyse inquired, as she turned her gaze away from the Duros and out through the glazed walling of the lift carriage, catching a brief sight of the swelling protests that surrounded the capital building.

"Perhaps no more than a few hours after the charges were raised against Honkam Ten, and his subsequent arrest" Siz Vhis responded drawing the governor's attention back to the Duros. Nodding with a brief acknowledgement and understanding, the governor pursed her lips in thought before, thoughtfully bringing her hand up to her chin - murmuring to herself for a brief moment. "And if I can be so morbid to inquire, what has been the cost of the discourse so far?" Alyse responded, as her hand lowered to reveal an expression of concern. "About 30 confirmed deaths, and approximately over a hundred injured in recent clashes and riots"

A slight hiss escaped the Sith lord's lips in reaction to the figures, before a slight tutting could be heard as she shook her head. Yet despite the dire statistics being read out, and the look of concern plastered over the Governor's features. Her mind was running into overtime, the sensations of the Darkside that was rife within the capital was one thing, the anger and discontent that dripped out of all those gathered in protest. Combined with the tension that would undoubtedly be lingering in the air from the losses of life and injuries so far, all built up into the clear understanding that the local populace were nought but a tightly bundled pile of kindling, and just needed that final spark to help push things over the edge.

As the lift came to a standstill and the doors opened, the guards filled out, with the two political figures in tow, before they headed through to a large meeting room a little further from the landing. Stepping into the meeting room the blonde, slowly made her way over towards the large glazed curtain walling that lined one side of the room, taking in from her vantage point the view from what must be the third floor, of the streets below. Her eyes narrowing as she regarded the assembled protesters down below, before pulling her attention back to the Duros once again as he cleared his throat. "Apologies, it is such a shame that the protests have gotten so out of hand, the view of the city would be quite spectacular from here" Alyse offered with a light smile before headed towards her gestured seat.

After she had made herself comfortable, and the attendants had finished pouring out refreshments for the two dignitaries, the blonde waited for them to leave, so it was just herself, the Duros and their respective guard details within the room. "Before we begin, I trust that due to the sensative nature of our potential arrangement for support, this meeting room is closed to all outside sources?" Alyse inquired, whilst she retrieved a journal and pen from her bag and set it down upon the meeting table. "All meeting rooms on this floor are private chambers Governor, with no connection to the Holonet or security feeds our discussions and interactions within here will remain with the strictest confidence, only the main circulation routes are monitored" Siz Vhis spoke out in response, his hands gesturing out towards and beyond the duracrete walls that separated them from the corridors.

A slight smile, curled on the Lord's lips as she nodded in appreciation. For the best part, all that would be discussed and take place within the room would remain within the room, it would only be within the main circulation spaces that she would have to be observant of her words and actions. "Well, then let us begin, Item 1 on the agenda, is of course what support do you need from Bakura?"

Well, Charlotte did love to take charge. Her eyes shifted to the convoy. “Get us through the outer barrier, I’ll handle the distraction.” She smiled in the darkness. “It’ll be very obvious.” Her mind sunk into the Darkness. The sweet call of the Dark rising to meet her. “But be quiet.” Charlotte’s eyes locked onto the convoy, her hand stretching out. This was just at the edge of her abilities. If she pushed herself, she was certain she would succeed. She could feel the hum of the repulsor engines. The pulsing life within in.

The engines were a delicate balance, one little disruption and they would flatter spectacularly. Her second hand reached out…the Darkness pouring into her soul. Focus Charlotte. She wrestled with the energy pumping from the repulsor. She fought that current of power. Her heartbeat quickly as sweat manifested on her brow. The Darkness called to her. Fight harder…fuel your needs. Rage built in her heart. She fed that anger to the Darkness. She capped the energy of the repulsor, sending it doubling back on itself. Charlotte smiled.

The repulsor engine of the lead speeder exploded in spectacular fashion. The sickly-sweet feeling of death bloomed in the Force. The Darkness approved. Shouting began to ring out in the complex, the convoy grinding to a halt as guards poured towards the ruined speeder. Screams of the dying just barely reached her ears. A larger smile spread across her face. Not at the deaths. Those did not really please her, but the fact she had done that. Her strength was growing. She could feel it. Hopefully, he hulking partner had done his duty.

As she dealt with the distraction, Hrothgar would race for the prison. Despite his large size, the man could move without very much a sound. Years in the pits had trained him to move quick and tread lightly. Where there were shadows, he would meld into them. Between that and the alarm from the distraction, he would pass with relative ease.

Reaching the wall, he pressed against it tightly, as guards poured out a nearby door, missing him by a single glance to the right. As they passed, he would begin to scale the wall. Three floors up. A solid halfway mark and still with zero alarm raised. He would pause beneath the sill of the open window, voices above him. An office? Allowing his legs to hang freely, Hrothgar would pull himself up by just his hands and peek inside. Just a quick one. Security office. Lowering, he would quickly kick off the wall to pull himself up and over the sill and into the office.

Landing in thud, he would pull a dagger free and flick it into the startled security officers throat, killing him. Unfortunately, it seemed to be more checkpoint then real office, but it was a start. Checking a cabinet, he would find various supplies. First AID, rope, blankets, ammo... Rope. He would set to work tying the rope around the corpse and tie it tightly, staying low so as to avoid detection.

Near the window, his eyes would peek over the windowsill and he would pull the bloody dagger free, wiping the blood on his forearm to clean it off then try to use the light to reflect off the blade to signal the Sith.
