I was invited to help with an operation. I assume it was to keep track of me. The 'Jedi' invited me to help and save more hostages. Upon mentioning that I don't want to murder anyone, the Mirialan mentioned that they "Don't murder people". With a horrified look on my face, I couldn't stop myself from asking 'Are Sith not considered people!?' The Tordarian, Fardul I believe he was named, pointed out that I was not brought up as they had been. Rather, he noted that I seemed naive of the way of things. I have to be honest, I admired him for his keen observation as well as his willingness to point this all out, despite having been the one that called me out and assumed I was a 'Sith' earlier. Also, the glorious hat that he had gotten from the Selkath with her verbal bravado also helped with his somewhat admirable appearance at that moment. Still, the fact that they took my ceremonial artifact has me worried to do anything that might upset them.
After Fardul explained my 'naive' nature, the Mirialan, Chit, explained to me that they do not 'take lives of those unless they are attacked first' and that 'he does not like the act of taking another's life but in order to defend himself and his friends, he will if need be. Respecting his answer, I tried to get out of it by mentioning that I couldn't fight, I was unarmed. It didn't take long for Chit to fix this, having Fardul give me back my ceremonial knife. With no other option, to stay in their favor, I agreed to help, but I told them I would not take anyone's life.
Shortly after agreeing, our ship landed on the roof of a building near their objective. Unfortunately, there were no means down, as there wasn't a way that lead down from the roof. After some finagling, we managed to find a way down. During the first road block, we managed to lie our way through, thanks to the outfit the human was wearing. On the second outpost, however, they had to claim that I was a hostage to be turned over, as was their mission. It was enough to get them past the droids. It was after we had gotten out of distance of the last barrier that we split up. The threatening human went off to take care of something while Chit, Fardul and I went to save the hostages and cut the power to the base. Things quickly went awry however and apparently the Twi'lek had was heading in our direction with the ship. Chit went to cut the power leaving Fardul and I to save the hostages. From here, everything happened so quickly it was more of a blur. Details are fuzzy at best in my memory. The ship with the hostages we were going to save had crashed in a hanger and as we made our way to it, someone must have set off some alarms. Soldiers intercepted us. In a fit of inspiration or perhaps just a blind fluke, I took advantage of the situation. I recalled what Fardul had told me earlier and pulled out my ceremonial knife. The hilt was different but with as dark as it was, and with it in my hand I doubt they would notice it. Turning it on, it's deep garnet glow showing to them, I demanded that the soldiers go to their post and to get out of our way. We had things to take care of here, unless they wanted to have a word with <u>our</u> superiors. I persuaded one of them to put away his weapon and he seemed as if he told the others to stand down, perhaps a captain or something. Another with the same helmet was not so easily convinced however. Unaffected by my bluff, Fardul wasted no time to use his magical words to persuade him to go to the other barracks.
Upon arriving at the downed ship in the hanger, Fardul left, telling me to wait for chit. Holding fast, it wasn't long before the Mirialan showed up. When chit got to the hanger, he rushed intot he ship, pulling me with him, and using me to help coerce the guards to stand down. It all happened so quickly that I'm still not sure what he said. Sending the gaurds away, Chit let the captives know we were here to save them. Within moments, he was in the pilots seat, preparing the ship to take off. Bracing myself as we took off, I looked back at those who were on the ship. There were more than a couple of…unsavory looking people among the captured and one that Chit has referred to as another 'Jedi'.
I dared not interfere, I didn't know how how to act in front of another 'Jedi' nor how to act in front of so many frightened and rough looking hostages. Allowing Chit to take the lead, he went to the 'Jedi' he noticed and uncuffed him and only him. Leaving the others restrained, I worried that they would get upset, but they didn't seem to cause a fuss. Things had begun to calm down, and with a moment to eat, I made sure with Chit that it was alright to offer the hostages food as well. With his permission, I offered them a portion of the food that we had and what could be found on the ship, though the remained restrained the entire time. I felt bad, but as long as they didn't cause a fuss or try anything, it was alright and it all ended very calmly.
Upon finally getting back with the other 'Jedi', Raxel, the frightening human, and Fardul brought with them a dead body. It was to note that Raxel seemed a bit roughed up. With what I have noticed from him, it is no doubt in my mind that he was the one to kill her. A moment of sickness washed over me but I held it down. Chit went to place his hands on her body but instantly recoiled, mentioning she was 'Sith'. She didn't seem evil, but perhaps that is why they were afraid of this 'Sith'. Looking at the Jedi and this Sith, I don't see a difference in them, not physically at least. I dared not touch the body like Chit did though. Perhaps it was because it isn't possible to tell a Sith from a Jedi just at first glance that makes them so threatening. That would mean that literally anyone could be a Sith, and that thought is indeed frightening, if they are as evil as I'm told. Still, I do not think the Jedi are as good and safe as they claim to be. It is worth noting that before I may have disrespected the Toydarian without meaning to at this moment.
I was quickly snapped from my thoughts when I heard Fardul mention how he had a 'fling' with this Sith. Looking at her and then back to Fardul, I couldn't stop my mouth from asking, "Why would she have a fling with you?" Trying to recover I told them that I meant no offense it's just that she was so…Before I could say any more, Fardul flew over to me and got eye level with me. Taking off his mask so his less than flattering nose hung in front of my face. Leaning back a bit, he moved in. He made a point that I had better not assume who he could and couldn't talk his way around and that I should know my place. That he was, indeed, more than capable of hooking up with her. After that, I just kind of stood there speechless…I mean…That nose though! AND HIS OBSCENELY NOISY TRUCK!? Biting my tongue, I did not say another word and instead walked away, to record this…I hope this is the last entry I have for today. I don't know what else I could possibly dare to handle. My nerve are at their ends. Perhaps…Perhaps I just need a moment to rest my eyes just a little…
