Iridonia, shortly after the events in An Increasing Threat 5.
Darth Sion has been walking the Galaxy, following the Force to this point. Why he does not know. In truth he hopes to find his own Apprentice. One as strong as Levid, hopefully stronger.
For Sion knows the ways of the Sith and he knows that combined, he cannot defeat Levid and Nihilus.
Suddenly a voice breaks his thoughts.
Voice: "Leave this place."
Sion turns, his lightsaber flaring to life, and finds a Zabrack stood before him.
Sion: "Who are you?"
Zabrack: "I am Zeltar Cannick. This is my home. Leave!"
Sion: "This is a set of mere ruins."
Zeltar Cannick: "Ah! The Jedi and their Republic destroyed my home and everyone I love. Now leave!"
Zeltar raised his bowcaster and pointed it at Sion.
With a flick of his hand Sion removed the bowcaster from Cannick's hand.
Sion: "There is much anger within you. Focus it, it will make you stronger!"
Sion smiled as the Zabrack's anger consumed him and he charged the Sith Lord. Sion easily blocked his attacks, fueling Cannick's rage.
With a wave of his hand Sion knocked Cannick on his back.
Sion: "I sense your hatred. I can train you, teach you the ways of the Dark Side. Give you the power to destroy those who destroyed your life! Pledge yourself to me and you will be invincible!"
Slowly Cannick dropped to a bow.
Cannick: "If you can teach me to kill Jedi then I will be yours."
Sion: "We have much work to do."
In the vaulted halls of Korriban's Sith Temple Nihilus and Levid walk side by side.
Nihilus: "The Dark SIde grows stronger each day, as do we. It wont be long now my friend."
Darth Levid: "Lord Sion? We did not see you there."
Sion: "It does not matter. I am not the one you wish to see."
Sion nodded to the archway behind them.
Sion: "My Lords, allow me to introduce you to my Aprrentice."
