    The Sith Knight walked into the grand council room and looked around. This was the place she had called home for so long. Her eyes scanned the images adorning the walls. Images of people long gone to the Empire and people still loyal to it. She smiled, not her normal smile but a smile none-the-less.

    Her boots made a loud thud against the polished floor of the room, chairs lined the floor for meetings and announcments. Athena smiled as she remembered returning here bloody from a battle. Resting a fallen foes weapon upon the floor and waiting for her Master.

    Once more Athena took the same postion upon one knee. Her left knee pressed against the cold floor and her right knee pressing against her chest. Her head hung low and her iced violet eyes closed and she waited. The council would be here and so would her Master. All she had to do was wait.

    It had been hardly a week since Athena had returned to the Sith Empire and Callista hadn’t yet had the opportunity to meet up with her. Although a clone of the original Sith Knight, Callista knew her to be one in the same…the memories, the actions, all shared with the one that had died in the Council Chamber months before.

    Almost in the exact spot of her creators demise, the clone now knelt on the stone floor, awaiting the arrival of their mutual Master. Callista remained in the back of the audience chamber; her back poised up against the nearest pillar. She watched her fellow Knight speechlessly, interested as to why Athena requested conference.

    :: The Sith Master sat in the high backed ebony chair as the clone of her apprentice entered to seek an audience with the council. Sensing something different about Athena's mannerisms, Dara rose from her chair with curiosity and descended the steps slowly to stand before her apprentice ::

    Eyes that burned with nothing but coldness and darkness watched as the women entered into the room. With an faceless expression he stared with his green eyes looking out ahead, his ears hearing every foot step, every sound that was made in the room easily. Giving an acknowledgment of her presence he knew her words to her Master took precedence over all for now and waited for the words to be spoken that would begin the next portion of this impromptu meeting.

    Athena remained in her kneeling postion as she heard some of the people whispering to others. She felt the presence of Callsista one of her long time friends.

    Then Dara made her way into the council room. Jedah was already there. Athena heard her sisters voice and her words. Memories flashed in her mind. A long walk along the shore at the tides, her training, the day her sister and she became blood sisters. And even Dara's wedding.

    Her pesonal shuttle landed in the East landing bay and her comm unit notified her of the landing. The ramp lowered and two fully grown tigeress's walked down the ramp followed by a young black panter. One of the larger cats was black and orange while the other was white and grey. The small of the cats batted and attacked the swishing tails of the others. They all three walked into the council room and rested upon the floor next to Athena. One on each side and the small one infront of Athena.

    " My Pets have arrived to see me home. And my ship is waiting. I'm leaving the Empire, for I have nothing left to offer any more. Our trade of skills and loyalty has come to an end. I shall pack what little I have here and depart soon. "

    Athena finally stood from her postion and lifted her head. Speaking to her cats.

    " Dale 3 steps then follow, Dara 5 after her. "

    The large cats nodded their heads. Athena had named her cats after her sisters. Because they were her family.

    Athena said nothing else and turned walking from the council room. Athena took 3 steps then the black and orange tiger lifted from the floor to show her name tag marked on a silver dragon amulet. She let out a large roar and trotted after Athena. Then when Athena took her 8th step the white cat with sea green eyes did the same. Showing her name and following suit.

    As Athena and her animals walked out of the room the tiny black panther cub walked from her spot and towards Dara. Her name tag showing in the same dragon amulet her name, Athena.

    The cub let out a small roar someday she would be as deadly as her elder sisters, she just need the guid to get there.

    DarkStar stood, his expression stoic, he had known this was coming as the ancient Sith seemed to know everything that would happen. He had been waiting behind a pillar by the entrance. As Athena was leaving he stepped in her path. His expression gave away nothing of what he was feeling as he stared at Athena.

    He stood blocking her path for a long moment before he moved aside, his eyes never leaving her, boring into her very soul as she past. When she and her animals were gone DarkStar cast a glance to the council, inclined his head and departed, he had other places to be now that was done.

    :: No words came to Dara's mind. This was quite unexpected and certainly not a thing that pleased her. Disappointment was not something the Sith Master was accustomed to from her own apprentices. Although the clone was a bit different than her regular apprentices since it was.. well a clone.

    The Sith Master looked over at the clone and realized that perhaps there were imperfections in the cloning process itself if it changed someone so much from their original version. Dara felt that the real Athena would never have left her side for any reason. Perhaps there was a situation her apprentice had not confided in her about. No matter the true reason, it seemed to be too late for anything else right now.

    Supressing her rage, she stood without a word, force lightning rippling up and down her arms as her hand began to shake. Clenching her fist firmly, Dara rose from her chair and followed Sith Lord DarkStar out of the council room and caught up with him down the hallway ::

    " Mmmmmmm. A most disturbing turn of events, to say the least. "

    :: There was a breif pause as The Sith Lord emerged silently from the Shadows that encased the Council Room. He slowly walked till he stood in front of the door which everyone exited ::

    " I truly hope this is not a sign of the future, the most loyal of Sith turning their backs upon the Empire. A sad day I must admit. "

    :: The Sith Lord turned to where his Master sat ::

    Lina stood there, but just shrugged at the matter.

    "That was something different ...."

    Silent yet also empty eyes watched the clone from within the dark corners of the grand council room.

    The Zabrak thought back to the short meeting with the clone, now he felt his own disappointment.

    Disappointment for the opportunities he would now never have from learning from the presence that had just walked away.

    There was much the clone of the great Lady Athena, Lady of Darkness, could have taught the Zabrak.

    He had thoughts of asking the clone to be his mentor, but now he would not be given the chance to ask.

    Most of all, the clone would never get the chance to know that she made some difference, and that who she was had mattered.

    His thoughts flowed freely in his mind, he did not know if the clone would catch them in time as she walked on.

    You may go, but your presence will never be forgotten, it will live on in memory. You should have stayed...

    The Zabrak's eyes remained glued to the area where the clone of Athena had left from.

    The Sith Knight listened as she walked down the hallway towards her quarters. Her two large Cats following in step. Her mind raced, her sister seemed distant and odd, but that would not stop her. She was leaving and that was that. Dara and Dale each growled softly at the thought of leaving but there was nothing Athena could do about it.

    The smaller cat still within the council room made her way over towards Zeta. She relased a small meow and purred rubbing against his leg.

    The clone then heard the thoughts of the person she had been conversing with before mentor the child. In the ways of the Darkness? She smiled then even within her fit of leaving she stopped walking.

    She could leave and allow the darkness to lose another gifted memeber or she could stay and teach a new member the darkness in the arts of Sorcery. Even if she didnt stay long she would stay long enough to teach the darkness as she was taught.

    As she had stopped walking. Her cats new already and started to run after Lord Darkstar and Mistress Shadowtide. The smaller cat pulled at Zeta's leg.

    Within the Darkness her eyes changed colors and a deadly and dark smile danced upon her lips. Via the force she spoke to Zeta.

    Come and learn the darkness as one should. To enhance the power over the weak, and rule as we the Sith should...

    Athena turned and started back towards the council room. Her sister and Master would be more then upset with her. But that was something she would handle later.

    Athena pulled upon her teaching of the force and created one of her Illusions that stood before the Lord Darkstar and the Mistress Shadowtide and spoke via the force to them. " Return to the Council room. "

    Athena looked at her friend Rains apprentice.

    " you wish to learn the art of Sorcery? "

    The Dragon of Darkness looked at the Disciple infront of her.

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-29-2002 02:08 PM:

    Zeta's expression changed so suddenly, yet his gaze remained where it was. He had heard Athena's message, and it was then that the feeling of disappointment quickly left him.

    He watched her walk in, and he bowed before her respectfully.

    "I do," the Sith Disciple said simply.

    "...but not just by anyone, you. I wish not to learn such Sith Sorcery by anyone else but you. I can think of no one else that I would wish to mentor me, other than you."

    He waited, but now he kneeled before the woman that stood before him, his gaze gave off a small pleading look. It was never of Zeta to beg, but he was now.

    Do not go....stay...

    Posted by The Lady Athena on 10-29-2002 02:20 PM:

    Athena looked at Zeta on his knee in a kneeling postion.

    " Dont kneel to me I am not your Master, nor a council memeber. I am just another member of the Empire. That is only if the council is not upset with me staying...? "

    Then she noticed the slightness in his voice, begging?? Was that what she heard.

    " I will teach you more then sorcery, I will teach you Sith DONT Beg! Jedi beg! They beg for their lives and the lives of others. SITH have no need for begging. Rain should have already taught you that. But then again Masters are busy.. I shall teach it to you. NOW STAND up. "

    Her voice growled.

    She waited to see if she was already the outcast and waisting her time and the time of Zeta or did the council and this Empire still value her and her skills.

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-29-2002 02:26 PM:

    The Sith Disciple knew Athena's words to be true. Zeta had never begged for anything in his life ever before. Something had made him do so then, but he knew not what.

    Quickly the Sith Disciple stood, anger replacing his former expression. The anger was for himself, for the foolish mistake he had made, he knew how foolish he had been, weak.

    "It will not happen again," he said through partly clenched teeth.

    Such was the tides of fate ever in their flow.

    Closing his eyes for a moment Lynch made no motion until he leaned forward in his chair and reopened his lids to stare down at the two.

    "So be it."

    Retrieving an jagged dagger with a blood red jewel embedded on the lower part of the blade he tossed the weapon to Athena. "Take this, slit his throat should he ever show such an weak emotion again as you train Zeta what you see fit. And use it on yourself should you decide to leave again."

    Leaning back to his seat he retook his emotionless visage and said no more. What was needed to be said. Such was the Sith way, should he regret this decision it would be taken of, one way or the other.

    Posted by Dara Shadowtide on 10-30-2002 01:58 AM:

    :: The countenance of her apprentice shimmered mysteriously into view before the Sith Master. Her face looked upon the image in confusion until the words of Athena rang true at last. A hopeful smile formed on Dara's lips as she felt the strong presence of her powerful sister. All had not been lost.. and the spirit of her sister lived on in darkness once more.. she could feel it.

    Turning to Lord DarkStar, she touched his arm lightly and then excused herself to return to the Council Room. The Sith Master travelled quickly down the hall, each footstep moving her closer to Athena.. closer to her sister.. closer to a skilled and valuable member of the Sith Empire.. and closer to someone who has perhaps has reconsidered a decision. Dara walked into the room to see Athena standing there once more and she walked over to stand before her ::

    "I am here now, my sister.."

    Posted by The Lady Athena on 10-30-2002 01:12 PM:

    The dagger was indeed lovely as Athena caught it within her grip.

    " I shall Master Lynch. As for the training of Zeta, that is Lord Rain's department. I am nothing more then a Mentor. "

    She felt it, her sister was almost running down the hall towards the council room. The larger cats turning and following in suit.
    She placed the dagger within her belt along with the others she always had at hand. The blood red jewel made it stick out more.

    " Hello my sister, it is good to see you once more. I know I have brought you pain and I have ****** you off. But I am also asking for you to retake me as your apprentice. "

    Posted by Dara Shadowtide on 10-30-2002 09:21 PM:

    :: Looking into the eyes of The Lady Athena, Dara recalled an important event that had meant a great deal to her in the past and she wanted to recreate it once again to seal the bond and forge a new era of darkness. Athena's loyalty ran deep as did their friendship.

    Reaching to her belt, Dara pulled the dagger she had received from her apprentice, Sith Knight Daegal Murdoch and held the blade lightly in palm. Her gaze fixed upon Athena as she spoke from her dark heart ::

    "As far as I am concerned, you never stopped being my apprentice. However, there is something which has brought me pain and I would like to rectify that today."

    :: The Sith Master began to squeeze the sharp metal blade as a small gash opened up on the palm of her hand. Droplets of blood spiraled silently to the council room floor as she continued to speak with conviction ::

    "Although your maker completed this ceremony with me and the blood which runs through your veins is the same as hers, I wish to renew the blood sister bond and nothing would please me more than to once more officially call you.. sister."

    :: Dara flipped the dagger over in her blood stained hand and extended the hilt toward Athena :

    Posted by The Lady Athena on 10-31-2002 01:14 PM:

    It was rather odd, Athena looked at her hand before Dara had offered her the hilt of the dagger. She already had a scar there from when her maker became the blood sister of Mistress Shadowtide.

    Her mind raced she didnt smile like the last time she was given such an honor. She took the dagger and placed it upon the already healed scar, recutting the skin and drawing blood. Everything was different for her, she knew she was a clone yet everything her Maker had felt she was feeling. Her blood ran down the palm of her hand and down to the floor.

    She then gripped her Masters hand and the two once more mixed the blood of two powerful Darksisters. Both her hands where covered in blood. Her right hand with her own blood and her left with the blood off the hilt of the dagger.

    " Then call me Sister once more. "
