Well the time had come, all pretence of forethought and planning had gone out of the window - the intent to remove the remnants of Locura's blight upon Bakura through subversion and isolated strikes had been cast aside. From what intelligence that had been gathered, the cult's defacto leader Khar Ti'varnus had seemingly grown paranoid with his estranged daughter's growing presence and strength in the Force, especially in the wake of her sudden reappearance and destruction of the Cult's secretive temple, rending the false Prophet Locura and those in his council at the time to nothing more than ash. So much so was Khar's paranoia that he had elected to have his closest entourage accompany him at all times, so that no one could take advantage of his isolation, this left the blonde cultist with little option but to reach out to those within the Eternal's ranks to help cleanse Bakura of the misguided cult's taint.

Standing at the edge of the dark forest on the outskirts of Salis D'aar, a place that very few of the locals dare to tread owing to the long ancient taint of the Darkside that scared the locale, if her recollection of history was to be correct the Forest once bore witness to a mass senseless slaughter within the old industrial district that the Forest had over the millennia reclaimed. A cloaked figure stared into the depths of the forest, her chestnut hued eyes narrowing as she observed the faint distant flickering of brazers in the distant clearing. Her mind had let go of it's usual reserve and calm, now it was full of a seething rage - whether it was the proximity to Locura's cult or her father that was the root cause, the feelings of bitterness and anger from the years of lies and betrayal of not only her mentor but her father, who sought to groom her for their own deluded pursuits to proclaim themselves Dark lords of the new Sith Empire with her as their unwitting weapon.

Word had reached her that the cult was to gather, so that Khar could unveil his grand plan to bring his Empire into fruition. Something that the blonde cultist saw would pose an indirect threat to the machinations of the Eternal, the Galaxy was already on edge with the recent revelations that Darksiders where once again amongst them, bringing potential undue attention towards the intentions of the Eternal. To have this rouge cult make moves to reveal themselves and claim Bakura for their own would jeopardise all that the Guardians and the Legionaries of the Eternal had worked for, this needed to be nipped in the bud and soon.

Turning her attention away from the distant forest clearing, Alyse regarded the various hands of the Eternal that had heard her call for assistance. Many of them she had not personally met as of yet, some she knew pretty well - particularly the crimson armoured droid assassin of the First Order, who had somehow gone unnoticed within the depths of her home's basement. "Thank you for your assistance, all of you" the blonde spoke out, breaking the silence that had fallen over the group of looming Sith Cultists that were poised like predators awaiting their moment to kill. "Ahead of us is the remnants of the Cult of Locura, whilst their prophet Locura has for the last few years been nothing more than ash blowing in the wind, My father has sought to continue with the vain efforts of grandeur. He is seeking to bring about the rebirth of a Empire in their own flawed ideals, he and his followers pose a risk to us all, they will bring the watchful eye of the galaxy and the Jedi not only towards the gateway to the unknown regions, but to all of us" she continued, giving those who had gathered an insight to the potential risk that the rouge cult's actions could bring about to the Eternal and their combined efforts to infiltrate and manipulate the worlds of the Galaxy.

"Tonight, as the Cult of Locura gather, we will reveal ourselves as the true bearers of the Sith's Legacy. Offer them the chance to align with us, though if they choose to pursue their misguided intentions, we will put an end to them once and for all." The blonde concluded, before reaching her hand down to her side to retrieve the hilt of her lightsaber, holding it firm and ready within her grasp, granting the opportunity for those gathered to ready themselves, or voice any suggestions on how to deal with the remnants before they set off into the shadows of the tainted forest.

ST-0910, or "Ten" or short, checked his ammunition clip and locked it into place. It had been a long time since he was dispatched from the Unknown Regions on a mission in full stormtrooper armor. Mostly, members of his batch were meant to ensure the safety of the cult's interests on their homeworld; but, every now and then, they were dispatched to ensure its will was felt elsewhere, too.

Ten had no opinions of the woman leading the mission. He personally didn't care about her ambitions or family squabbles. What concerned him more than anything was that this cult—the Locura, or whatever they were called—threatened the secrecy of the Sith Eternal; and that could not be allowed.

"Awaiting your orders, ma'am," he said when it was his turn to speak. @Topher

Balal stood at the edge of the forest only feet apart from the other who gathered. The tiny blonde cultist has requested the assistance of the Ren to assist in her mission to deal with an issue at the gateway to the Unknown Region. But the Knights were busy dealing with other matters. Pulling the eyes of the galaxy toward their shadow to that the rest of the Eternal might moved unhindered by those like the Jedi and the foolish guild of rangers.

Now, he stood with the woman. Her name he cared little about. Nor the rest of the cultist she had managed to gather here, especially her pet droid. Balal Ren was concealed in his Silver and black armor. His void black lightsaber hilt in his left hand, the shadow gathering in his right. He didn't need to speak. The trooper's words were fitting enough.

The assassin droid stood in silence, shrouded in the darkness aside from his glowing red electroreceptors. He knew his role and knew his place in this gathering. As such, the droid’s vocabulator remained silent. A massive E-lls Sniper Blaster Rifle was magnetized to its back and a pair of DL-44 Heavy Blaster pistols remained in their holsters at his thigh. The droid had begun to understand his role among the Sith Eternal and it was that of service and support. Getting this cult "straightened out" was the first step for a new iteration of the First Order.

His electroreceptors remained fixed on Alyse as she spoke. While the droid was fairly talkative when alone with Lady Ti’Varnus, there was no need for words at this time among the other Sith and the soldier. Foley was requested to be ready for combat, so that is what the assassin droid ensured it was prepared to do. It simply awaited for the next commands…

Whilst the others stood, Checking over thier weapons, readying themselves for what was to come, the blonde cultist opened her mind into the swirling Energies of the Force that flowed around her, the seething and uncontrolled torrents of raw emotional anger and bitterness that was held towards the Cult of Locura and her father. Whilst was beneficial for channeling the true strength of the Force in its natural state, was of little use to the cultist, without a degree of control and focused purpose. Her thoughts focusing and tempering into a state of mindfulness, slowing the raging torrents that flowed through her and bringing the engeries into a collected point, harnessing and tempering them into a single focused body of energy within her.

As the only words to be spoken reached her ears, uttered from the Soldier of the Eternal, the female nodded in response. "Then we will make ourselves known" Alyse commented as she opened her eyes and looked towards the gathered party. "I will break the cover first, go in alone offer them a chance to change thier ways, whilst you fan out around thier flanks" she advised as she slowly wiggled her fingers, subconsciously focusing the Force into the tips of her extremities. "If they reject the offer, then we give no quarter" she concluded, before turning on her heel and leading the group into the forest, her movements towards the cults position Guided by the Force. Only stopping to silently signal for her companions to break off and spread out around the perimeter.

Allowing several minutes to pass, for the others to get into thier positions, Alyse watched from the shadows as the Cult gathered around her father, thier proceedings bathed in the light of burning braziers and pyres, her lips pursing in thought as she assessed and calculated how they would deal with the aftermath of the potential slaughter - should it go that way, a forest fire with the cult at the center with thier open pyres will serve as an effective cover of a tragic accident to hide the fate that would befall them. The land was tainted enough with the darkside from the scars left from the ancient acts of genocide carried out by this Crimson Menace, that had gone unhealed within the Force - that it should hopefully cloud the fate that would fall upon those gathered here tonight.

Taking a deep breath, Alyse gathered herself once more, before stepping out from the dark cover of the forest undergrowth and into the Amber hued light of the cultists gathering. Her emergence bringing an abrupt interruption to the proceedings, as the robed and hooded figure drew closer towards the outer edges of the Cult members. With her free hand Alyse pulled back her hood to fully reveal herself to the murmuring gathering. "Evening Father"
