    To live is to die...

    "Nu ocop sam...olos nu ocop sam" *Ancient Zabraki for 'A bit more...just a bit more' *

    :: DM entered the TSE HQ's after his training session with Lady Zena. Exahusted. That's how he felt. His whole energy drained. Never before had he been thankful for being a Zabrak. After his training that changed. For the first time, he really understood how handful it was to have the pain ressistance characteristic to his race ::

    :: Not many others would've been able to resist what he went through. Yet, he was in a not ordinary place. He now was a member of TSE, a place where great warriors lived and the Dark Side of The Force could be felt flown with quite an uncommon strength ::

    'Adac aid somirom nu ocop artseun airomem dna sotneiniconoc est nagrala sartneim artseun adiv est atroca' *Ancient Zabraki for 'Everyday we die a little, our memory and knowledge get longer, while our life gets shorter...'

    :: These were the thoughts in the Zabrak's head when he found himself right in front of the doors of the med-bay. He touched his shoulder and noticed that still crimson warm liquid was coming out of the part where a missing piece of flesh was found. He then looked at the already cauterized dagger wound and thought ::

    ' These cicatrixes are our trophies. Odd, how us warriors found pleasure in pain. These are our scars of pleasure'

    :: He then entered the room, looking at a med-droid he ordered :: " Bring me some gause and bacta fluid, immediatly "

    ~Sith Warrior Alisa Sha was walking down the corridor in front of the Med Bay when she saw a tall Zabrak enter. Once again on her mission to meet as many fellow members of the Sith Empire as she could, she decided to follow him inside and then walked over to him.~

    "Hi there. I'm Sith Warrior Alisa Sha. I don't believe we have met yet."

    ~She smiled at him and then took notice of his injuries.~

    "Ah..I see your training is going well."

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 09-30-2002 12:08 PM:

    :: DM nodded his head in a respectful way to Sith Warrior Alisa Sha and said::


    "No, I don't think we have been formally introduced, though I remember you making some questions during the audience, where I requested to be part of TSE, my recruitment. My name is Darth Mundus, and it's a pleasure to meet you."

    ::The med droid then came with the bacta fluid and the gause and handed it to the tattooed face Sith Disciple::

    "Yes, training is going well. It has been rather...enlightning...or should I say "endarkening"? HAHAHA ::As he was saying this a smile was drawn into the Iridonian's face. He then took the gause and impregnated it with the healing liquid::

    :: DM took a deep breath and looked at the gause thinking:: 'This may sting just a tiny bit' ::Then proceeded to place the wet gause on his wound under his left shoulder, right where the clavicle is::

    ::With no pain, just a quick shiver he turned to the Sith Lady and spoke::"So, have you been in TSE for long?"

    ~She smiled and laughed at his sense of humor.~

    "I have been here off and on for quite a while now. Personal business pulled me away for a period of time though, but I have returned for good.. or rather evil, this time."

    ~Alisa grinned again and then glanced at the med droids attending to him before looking back to Mundus.~

    "Do you want me to come back when this is done? I mean, we can talk again when you're not busy if you want."

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 10-07-2002 08:03 AM:

    ::A grin was drawn in the giant Zabrak's face, he too laughed at the comment made by the Sith Warrior. It appeared to be that her sense of humor was very alike that one of the tattooed face Sith::

    "Oh, no. It's OK. I'm almost done":: DM said while removing the gause off his shoulder. It was not only soaked with bacta fluid, but also with his own blood now::

    ::There was really nothing he could do about the bruises, those would only heal with time. The dagger wound in his leg, had been cauterized the only thing left to do was for it to heal::"So, tell me more about yourself Alisa Sha. Is that what I should call you?"

    ::While saying that he took some tape and cut some pieces. He then grabbed a new gause and put it over his shoulder. A couple a times he tried to tape the gause to his back without success. Obviously he couldn't see very well what he was doing. A little frustrated he turned to his new acquiantance::

    " seem to be having problems, hehe, would you mind giving me a hand?" ::Said the 315 lb Iridonian as he gave a warm smile to Alisa::

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 10-07-2002 11:28 PM:

    ~She smiled and then helped put the gauze on his back as she pressed the tape against his skin.~

    "You can call me Alisa if you like. Well let's see.. I am the Princess of Ord Mantell, and the half sister to Sith Master Rama Sha. I was raised to be a bride for a Prince of some far off world, although being very independent, I sure didn't like that at all. I thought the choice of who I marry should be my own which of course my parents, the King and Queen, didn't really like.

    When I was 12, a revolution took place. I watched in horror as my own parents were executed. The next part is kind of fuzzy.. but I was taken away to some kind of a lab where I was subjected to alot of medical tests and then eventually shoved into a stasis pod and put into suspended animation.

    I awoke a year later and escaped the compound to seek out my lost family members and this is how I found my brother Rama and the Sith Empire."

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 10-09-2002 08:27 AM:

    "Wow, a princess. The only time I was this close to royalty, was when I held a queen hostage" ::Replied the Iridonian to what she had said::

    ::He then stood up and carried on::"There is nothing else for me to do with this wounds, not only do Zabraks have great pain-ressitance, but we're also great healers" ::He pressed the gauze again and asked::"Would you like to go somewhere else to continue our chat?"

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 10-18-2002 12:23 AM:

    ~Alisa gave an evil grin.~

    "Well I would like to think I am a bit more skilled than your typical royal damsel in distress."

    ~She laughed lightly.~

    "Sure. We could take a walk if you would like to. Where would you like to go?"

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 10-21-2002 11:48 AM:

    ::Mundus gave a smile back to Alisa:: "Sure a walk sounds fine..." ::Removing his hand from the gauze he carried on:: " Considering I'm still the rookie there are not many places I know around here, except here, the training grounds, the bar and my chambers...perhaps a li'l tour of other facilities?

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 10-21-2002 10:10 PM:

    "You mean you haven't even gotten the grand tour yet?"

    ~Alisa seemed genuinely surprised by this.~

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 10-22-2002 08:13 PM:

    "I'm afraid not...perhaps you could give it to me..." :: DM gave a warm smile to Alisa Sha and after saying this he offered his arm to her in a very galant way::

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 10-27-2002 07:09 PM:

    ~Alisa smiled and took his arm, leading him down the hallway and to the center of the entrance foyer.~

    "Well let's see, where to start. Ok, over there is the high security entrance to the Sith Empire Archives where many ancient items are stored as well as where the history of the Empire and its founders are contained and preserved for all time."

    ~She released her arm from his to give a sweeping gesture behind where they just came from.~

    "And the main living areas for the Disciples and Warriors are behind us. The Knights have a hall to themselves as do the Lords. And the Sith Masters pretty much stay in the secluded sections on the far wing across the ruins. Any questions so far?"

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 10-28-2002 08:55 AM:

    "No questions as of yet, m'lady" :: DM was simply amazed by everything he had seen so far::

    ::Could there possibly be something not found within the greatness of TSE? Not likely::

    ::Mundus just stood there for a moment in amazement. He then turned his gaze back to the Sith Lady, he gave Alisa a warm thankful smile and wondered if there was still more to be shown to him::

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 10-30-2002 01:19 AM:

    ~She smiled and looked around, pondering on where to take him next. After a moment, she pointed over to the entrance door to headquarters.~

    "We could take a walk around the entire compound if you would like to. I'm guessing you are quite familiar with the training grounds by now but there are some lesser known paths that you might want to know about.. especially if you're running late for a training session and don't want to face the wrath of an angry master."

    ~Alisa chuckled lightly.~

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 10-30-2002 11:37 PM:

    ::A smile was drawn in the tattoed face of the Zabrak and a small chuckle could be heard leaving his mouth::

    "A walk sounds rather inviting. And like you put it, though I'm familiar with the training grounds, and I guess you can tell by my wounds, I sure don't wanna taste the cold steel of Lady Zena's sword" ::He then offered his arm again to the Sith Princess and carried on::

    "Shall we?"

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 10-30-2002 11:59 PM:

    ~She smiled and took his arm, leading him out of the living area and down a small path. A mist hung in the air as they continued to walk. The Sith Warrior took a couple of unmarked turns and then spoke quietly as they headed toward the far side of the training grounds.~

    "So have you met many fellow members of the Empire yet?"

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 10-31-2002 10:53 AM:

    "I've been lucky enough to find some nice people around, like yourself" :: DM just smiled to Alisa and kept on walking right beside her::
    "There's Nikka, my good friend Talus, Jez, Bio Hazzardous, Xam, Kekoa, and of course my master Dark Lady Zena" ::Mundus eyes spoke something silently, the image of his master came to his mind. Both of 'em sparring, training, talking at Rama's, DM's lightsaber on Unknown's throat. He snapped of the one-second-trance he was in and added::

    And I'm sure I'll be leaving some of them out, by no means I intend to show a lack of respect or do it on purpose, just can't think of names right of hand"

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 11-02-2002 03:10 PM:

    ~She smiled back as they rounded the corner and came upon the Training grounds.~

    "See what I mean? We're already here and that's in half the time it takes normally. Oh and thanks for the compliment. I enjoy meeting fellow comrades of the Empire myself. I have spoken with my masters Raine and Dara, Callista, Nikka and zinjara. I look forward to meeting others and speaking further with you as well."

    ~Alisa looked around the training grounds again and then back to Mundus.~

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 11-02-2002 09:08 PM:

    :: DM turned to the former princess and a warm smile was given to her::

    "Indeed a SHORTcut this path is" ::He then chuckled slightly::

    "Is there everything included in the tour? Or is there something else to see? ::Another smile was given to the Sith Lady as the giant Zabrak awaited for a reply::

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 11-03-2002 02:33 PM:

    "Oh there is plenty more to see, it just depends on how much time you have right now. We could go see the Archives next if you want to."

    ~She looked over at him with a smile, waiting to see where he would like to go next.~

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 11-04-2002 08:35 AM:

    "I have plenty of time, but only if you do too. Wouldn't wanna interrupt with your duties, or anything like that" :: DM looked at the Sith Lady and carried on:: "The Archives sound like a good option"

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 11-05-2002 01:54 AM:

    ~As they began to walk, she looked around and then spoke in a quiet tone.~

    "Do you know much about the Sith Empire's history?"

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 11-05-2002 07:44 AM:

    "Not really" ::Said the oversized Iridonian as he took his right hand to his chin::"I guess, it's only necesary for me to learn more about my new home..." ::He then smiled to the former princess and added::

    "Especially with such a great teacher..." ::He then chuckled a big as he said those words to the Sith Warrior::

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 11-11-2002 08:48 PM:

    ~She smiled at him.~

    "Hm, well I could give you a holonovel which has the history of TSE detailed on it as well as show you some of the holopaintings of past and present leaders. Unless you think that might be part of your training or something. I wouldn't want to do anything that might interfere with your training.. what do you think?"

    ~The two continued to walk back towards the Archives area in headquarters, taking a slightly different path this time.~

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 11-12-2002 12:01 PM:

    "The holonovel and holopaintings would be more than welcomed and very much appreciated" ::Said the oversized Iridonian to the former princess::

    "I'm not sure they'd be part of my training, and though I shouldn't assume anything, I don't think Lady Zena would mind. I actually think, she'd be more glad I'm preparing myself and being studious" :: DM kept walking right by Alisa's side, paying attention to the new ways she was showing him::

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 11-14-2002 09:18 PM:

    ~They arrived back at headquarters as probe droids whizzed by them on routine perimeter checks. The security around the Empire was evident to the two as they continued to move around the compound. After placing their thumbs on the key area to the entrance doors, they walked inside where she led him over to a small hallway with a larger pad next to the door. Placing her hand on it as a small ray also scanned her retina, the computer voice responded with the Sith Warrior's clearance to enter the Archives. Alisa turned to Mundus and gestured for him to do the same.~

    "Your turn. I sure hope they have entered your data into the computer or it's going to get messy."

    ~She giggled and hoped he didn't believe her teasing ways.~

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 11-16-2002 04:47 PM:

    ::A slight chuckle could be heard leaving DM's lips:: "I sure hope so, too. Would have to see a princess get dirty..." ::He giggled again as he took a step forward and placed his hand on the pad, his retina was also scanned, with the little ray, and voilá: access was also granted to the tattooed face disciple::

    "Glad someone listened to you Alisa" ::Added the oversized Iridonian as a small laughter could be heard::

    Posted by Alisa Sha on 11-18-2002 01:40 AM:

    ~She smiled back at him as they entered the long hallway leading to the central area of the Archives.~

    "Well I hope you're not going to be too disappointed but since I'm only a Warrior I can only show you limited sections of the Archives. I have heard that Sith Master Shadowtide has taken some of her apprentices in the areas I don't readily have access to, but then again she's a Sith Master and all. We should be able to still see a few things here that maybe you haven't seen yet. Is that ok?"

    Posted by Darth Mundus on 11-18-2002 02:43 PM:

    "It is more than OK" ::Mundus couldn't help but be amazed at the greatness of the Archives, so many things to see, so many things to learn, their past, their roots, all together in this room. What an opportunity for the Zabrak to just learn more about who he is: a Sith::

    ::He then followed Alisa just astonished by everything that he was seeing::

  • #2
    ~Alisa led Mundus into the central area and pointed to the various holopaintings hung all around.~

    "The Sith Empire was founded quite a while back and has a rich history. The images you see here on the wall are the founders and leaders of our organization, past and present. Some members have moved on to another path in the Dark Side whereas some simply have disappeared, never to be seen again. Any time I feel alone or lost, I come here and remember the strength of those who have come before us so that I might make my own contribution to the Sith Empire."


    • #3
      "Some of them seem to be alive."

      The oversized Iridonian was refering to some of the holo-paintings. So many Sith through the course of history, and not only through it, but that actually changeed and molded the course of history. In their faces power could be seen, along with an exigency of respect, that had to be paid.

      Mundus could perfectly and easily understand why whenever Alisa felt down, she'd come in here. There was some sort of power gathered in here dervied from the holo-paintings, eventhough they were really nothing more.
