Korriban, immediately following the events in A Deadly Response 5.
The Sith Temple was a quiet place. Shrouded in mystery and a deathly silence.
A silence that was about to be broken.
With a loud crash the scarred form of Darth Sion crashed through one of the pillars of the Temple.
The Sith Lord tumbled down and slammed into the ground.
Slowly Sion pushed himself up to his feet.
Darth Zealot: "This is how it ends Master. At last I will be the Master!"
Darth Sion: "We shall see."
Zealot flew through the air, slashing at Sion, but the Sith spun around and blocked his Apprentice's blow.
They spun around each other, clashing their blades against each other.
Darth Sion: "You were a fool to think you could defeat me Zealot."
With a wave of his hand Sion sent the young Zabrack flying back to slam into a rock.
Sion smiled as Zealot pushed himself painfully to his knees.
Darth Sion: "With Korriban running through me I am invincible! You will fail and you will die."
Darth Zealot: "No, no you will die!"
Zealot backflipped and swung his blade down on Sion's. The force behind the strike was enough to make Sion stumble and his grin faded as Zealot powered into him.
Darth Zealot: "You call me weak, but here you will die at my hands! I am yours no longer!"
Zealot flicked his blade under Sion's, breaking his defence.
Then the young Sith spun around and drove his blade into Sion's gut. Sion let out a surprised gasp and then collapsed on to the floor.
Darth Zealot stood silently over his Master's corpse.
Darth Zealot: "My power is wasted here. There is only one person who I can learn from now. Goodbye, Master."
Zealot turned a limped slowly away.
Sometime later Darth Nihilus appeared and stood over Sion's ruined body.
Darth Nihilus: "Awaken, Lord Sion."
Slowly Sion pushed himself to his feet.
Darth Sion: "He could have killed me Nihilus."
Darth Nihilus: "He did kill you Sion, Korriban saved you however."
Darth Sion: "I will kill him!"
Darth Nihilus: "No! we shall see what he does first, where he goes. And we shall hope that this threat that yu have foolishly unleashed will not come back to haunt us..."
