  • Endless night...

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 10-25-2002 11:31 AM:
    Endless night...

    :: Lost in the darkness, eventhough the moonlight filled his chambers; silence surrounds him, eventhough the night life would be heard outside his window; once early morning, now endless night...::

    ::A cursed soul a rotten heart, was all there was left of...::'Who am I?'

    ::Wasted in his own thoughts, seemed the Zabrak would have to wait to find an answer to his question::

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-26-2002 08:22 AM:

    Mundos was not alone in pondering over such a question, countless of beings did it everyday.

    However, on this endless night, another Zabrak pondered the same question...

    It was a question Zeta had yet to even find the smallest of answers to.

    The one who had raised him so long ago, a Zabrak like himself, knew much of his people, but he had never bothered to speak to Zeta of such things. Zeta's mentor had been much too busy back then, too busy wielding Zeta into the fierce warrior he was meant to become.

    Day in and day out, he would work. Never resting, he'd never called the man Master, never. This was not his name. The man had a name, but it had never been allowed to be spoken.

    Yet such a name had been spoken, only on two occasions, he'd been beaten both times then. The beatings never bothered him. His mentor had taught him not to let pain bother him.

    The man had been no mentor, but he had been all Zeta knew back then.

    The mentor might have faded, but the memories never would...

    I must know of who I am, it is the only way of unlocking my past...

    Only two other Zabraks' existed within the Empire, yet there was only one he wished to speak to now.


    The force took the Zabrak where he wished to be...

    ::The silence was way too loud and the shadows that were drawn in the darkness of Mundus' mind were more than dark. However, it was all of a sudden interrupted by a presence he felt familiar::

    :: The large Iridonian had left the doors of his chambers wide opened. So he shouldn't have been surprised when he turned around to the door and saw someone there. Yet, he was. Only three Zabraks were part of TSE's ranks, another Disciple, a Lord, and Mundus himself. DM's surprise derive from the fact that the one at his door was one of the other two. Darth Zeta::

    ::Silence was even louder for a few seconds. Two of the same kind, so alike, yet so different::

    "Please come in..." :: Darth Mundus waved to his fellow Zabrak to step into his quarters::

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-27-2002 07:03 AM:

    With a mere nod of his head, the Zabrak stepped into Mundus quarters.

    Something was not right with his fellow Zabrak, Zeta could feel it. Still, he gave no indication of his small discovery.

    "Good to see you again. I'm sure you wonder what brings me here..."

    Zeta let his words drift away as he quietly observed the room he was standing in. Truth be known, he was being stubborn, he knew he himself was troubled, he just did not want to admit so. Well, at least not before the other Zabrak did.

    "Would you care for a drink or something?" ::Said DM as DZ stepped in the room::

    "To say I'm not surprised to see you here, wouldn't be accurate at all. Yet, a rather nice surprise it is" :: DM then moved his hand in a seat-offering gesture to his guest::"Please sit down"

    ::Mundus then moved towards the corner where the drinks were and continued::

    "Tell me Zeta, how have you been? And to what do I owe the pleasure of your visit?"

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-27-2002 02:29 PM:

    "An Ale, if you have it, if not, I'll just take some water," he said as his eyes fell to one of the seats within the room, hesitating slightly before he walked over to sit down.

    He sat down, his gaze, however, followed Mundus as he walked toward the corner. A small amused smile played upon the Zabrak's lips.

    "Oh, I've been alright, as to my visit..?"

    He paused, letting out a rather light chuckle.

    "...Well, my visit finds me here for the same reasons you find yourself in the dark searching for...."

    Again, he still did not admit his reason for being there, just hinted at it. It was always like Zeta to keep his fellow Sith guessing...

    "Will Corelian Ale do?" ::Asked DM to his guest, still listening to what he said::

    ::Once the drinks were taken out, Zeta's comment about Mundus being in the dark caught Mundus off guard. With his back still towards his guest DM carried on::

    "Answers...???" ::Said the oversized Zabrak as he turned his head so that the left side of his face could be seen by his fellow Zabrak::

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-28-2002 09:11 AM:

    "Corelian will do just fine."

    Zeta had not expected his comrade to be caught so off guard. In fact, he hadn't expected it at all.

    "Mmm, yes. I've been looking and searching for some time now. Still, I have discovered nothing. I feel as though time will give me the answers I am looking for. Answers as to who I am..."

    "That makes two of us my friend..." ::Not only were they two specimens of the same kind, the same race, but under the same goal::

    :: Mundus then grabbed both drinks, the Corelian Ale for himself and his usual 'Yavin 4 at night'. He offered his drink to his guest and sat down in a chair right in front of him::

    "Perhaps, we should search for those replies together, two heads always think better than one, wouldn't you agree?" :: DM then raised his glass in a toast gesture to his fellow Zabrak::

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-28-2002 02:13 PM:

    Zeta raised his glass in return, nodding slightly in response.

    "Where do you think we should start?"

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 10-29-2002 08:33 AM:

    "I don't know about you my friend, but probably within ourselves first, so that we then know where to head" :: DM took a sip of his drink and looked at his fellow Zabrak, seems they still were at the same point. Nowhere, at least now they weren't each one by themselves::

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-29-2002 08:57 AM:

    "Very well," Zeta said, almost dryly, he disliked speaking of himself. He knew it was not possible to find what he was looking for without looking inside himself.

    This was not any easy process for the Zabrak by any means.

    "Where do you come from?"

    Zeta suspected that he knew the answer already, but he had to start from somewhere and that was the only place he was ready to begin from, at least at the moment, anyway.

    "I'm native to Iridonia" ::Iridonia, was the home planet to the Zabrak race, it had been the planet, that saw the species birth and develop. An Iridonian Zabraki, was 100% pure::

    "I'm almost certain I would know your answer to such question, still I'd like to know from you, if that's OK" :: Darth Mundus could sense his fellow Zabrak, was not completely comfortable speaking of his past, however, both tattooed-face Sith knew this was the only way::

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-30-2002 08:35 AM:

    "As am I."

    The obvious had already been spoken, both already knowing the answer before it had been spoken.

    Nothing could be avoided now, he would have to speak on something on his past.

    "I have no relatives, I do not know who produced me. I was raised by another Zabrak, one whom looked much like myself. I had no one else. I was not treated well, but often I did as told"

    Zeta's gaze fell onto the open window and he looked out toward the stars.

    "I was never told anything about myself, what I know now, I learned on my own. My mentor only taught me what he wished, never of what I wanted to learn."

    The Zabrak had not shared anything in specific detail, he was not ready to, and he doubted he would ever be ready to.

    Slowly Zeta's gaze turned to look back to Mundus.

    "What of you? Perhaps you have a better past than that of my own."

    "I'm afraid, I do not..." ::Mundus gaze fell to the ground::

    ::Seemed the Zabraks were not only united by their characteristic race threads, but their dark past. Another bond, was somehow created, no wonder why both Iridonians decided to learn the ways of the Sith::

    "There's not much I remember about my past. I did have a mother, don't even remember her name. All I remember is her dying in my arms, with every single bone in her, even her skull crushed, fractured." :: DM paused for a moment his yellow gaze burned with intensity::" so called father did it"

    ::Hate could be felt within the room, it filled the room, there was hardly any space left for anything else::

    "Then I became a bounty hunter, and in order to save my life I had to become a Sith, he gave me those two choices, die in body and live in spirit with the rest of the dead or live in both and learn the ways of the Sith"

    ::Two tattoed faces, two horn-headed heads, two dark pasts, seemed similarities would be found more often than not within the two Zabraki specimens. Would they continue, or would they end there?::

    Posted by Darth Zeta on 10-31-2002 07:21 PM:

    "I see," he said, seeming to be thinking of something.

    "How did you come to find the Sith Empire then?"

    There was still much for Zeta to tell, but right now, he was more interested in the rest of Mundus' story.
