(Duxn, the moon of Onderon, several hours following the rebel break in of the Royal Iziz Palace)
(Imperial Intelligence Agent Dackr surveyed the vast jungle moon of Duxn. The moon was incredibly close to the planet Onderon below, so close that giant winged lizards called drexyls could fly from the planet to the moon as the atmospheres intersected, however there was no other mark of civilization on the wild world, making it all the easier to find the fugitive rebels)
Dackr- There, in the distance! Only a drexyl, Agent Rhenn, could make that much disturbance to the local wildlife.
Rhenn- We are close then indeed, Agent Dackr. Our targets shall not evade us this time. I shall prepare our troops.
(Rhenn walked over, the trained beast-rider mercenaries paced restlessly as he approached)
Mercenary Captain- Well? Have you two located our prey yet?
Rhenn- Affirmative. We will pursue them into the jungle and eliminate them.
Mercenary Captain- Fine by me. The boys and I were beginning to think we wouldn't see any action today.
Rhenn- Rest assured, there will be plenty of blood for you to spill in good time. Now we march.
(Meanwhile, Basil, Bartolo, and the mysterious man who rescued them in Victory Plaza rushed through the thick jungle growth)
Mysterious Man- Keep running, we're almost there! That drexyl should lead them off track for a while, but it won't take long for them to find us!
(Basil panted as he struggled to keep pace with the man)
Basil- Who? Who are these people you are convinced are following us, and where are we going anyhow? I hope you won't think I am rude but we do not even know who you are.
(The man stopped in the clearing and flipped back his hood)
Basil- Major Kalin? Impossible! Last I heard intelligence was purged and all the agents were killed.
Kalin- Not quite, I'm afraid. I apologize for not revealing myself earlier but secrecy is an agent's best weapon and I'm not keen to let the Empire on that I'm still alive.
Basil- But how?
Kalin- Well, itís a rather long story. I think Iíll let my rescurer tell you himself.
(Kalin let our three high-pitched whistles and Jedi Master Boris Yakerno and former director of intelligence Meredith stepped out of a hidden hut)
Kalin- Master Yakerno, director, I believe you know these men.
Boris- Ha! Ha! Good to see you too Basil!
Basil- Boris! By the force, is it really you? And the director too? How can this be?
Boris- Well my friend, in a short expository after the war I needed a place to be hidden from the galaxy, I came to Duxn, obviously, as it is seeped with a Dark Aura from the Sith tyrants of Onderon, here I could mask my presence from the Sith.
Bartolo- Ingenious Boris! I always thought you were a smart one, not even I could sense you all these years! But I must ask, what of the director? Are you two...
Boris- My, my Bartolo! I am surprised at you! I must disappoint you again. Ivonna and I have been friends since long before the War, I went on one of my first missions with her, before she joined intelligence and became Meredith. I could sense them through the force and knew that I could not remain hidden any longer, I rescued them and brought them here, however I fear my refuge is now in danger because of it.
Dackr- Targets sighted Agent Rhenn, the mercenaries are moving into position.
Rhenn- Excellent. We will execute them in a precise delta-eight ambush. This is the end of the hunt Agent Dackr.
Dackr- And here I almost thought it would be exciting Agent Rhenn. Alas, our lot seems to be disappointment.
Rhenn- So true Agent Dackr. I propose we alleviate our disappointment by terminating our targets.
Dackr- An excellent plan again Agent Rhenn, let us do so at once.
Rhenn- Sniper, are you in position?
Mercenary Sniper- Affirmative chief! I got them in my sights...I could kill them now...
Rhenn- Negative! Await my orders, mercenary!
Mercenary Sniper- Fine, sir-
(Suddenly a shot rang out and the mercenary sniper fell breaking through the canopy branches to the jungle floor below)
Kalin- Ambush! Everyone look out!
(The group activated their weapons and took defensive positions, but the jungle only returned silence)
Rhenn- Blast it! I told him to wait!
(As Rhenn gleaned over, another blaster shot rang out and another mercenary collapsed on the ground)
Rhenn- What the-
Dackr- Agent Rhenn! We have a problem here!
(As Rhenn looked over in horror, a Mandalorian soldier leaped out of the jungle underbrush blasting Dackr through the chest as another mercenary fell in the distance)
Rhenn- Dackr! No! You scum will pay!
(Rhenn fired at the Mandalorian who nimbly and silently jumped into the air)
Rhenn- Come down here you coward!
Mercenary- Sir, we have to- ugh!
(Another terrified mercenary ran out of the clearing only to be impaled by another Mandalorian's blade)
(The group looked around in a silent horror as frantic blaster shots and shouting seemed to come from every direction in the jungle, always followed by the distinctive thump of a body falling to the jungle floor)
(The shouting and blaster shots abruptly came to and end as Rhenn's body fell into the clearing, his head neatly severed from his body rolling toward them)
Kalin- That can't be good.
(Suddenly chains and cables shot out from every direction, wrapping around Kalin, Basil and Meredith as they were pulled away)
Boris- Meredith! Kalin!
(The two remaining Jedi took up defensive positions, the hiss of their blades the only sound)
Bartolo- I have a very bad feeling about this Boris.
Boris- You are telling me.
(Suddenly another chain shot out, wrapping itself around Bartolo's leg and dragging him away)
Boris- Duke! No!
Boris- Alright, I am the last one standing! Come out! Show yourselves!
Mandalorian Leader- Actually I don't think you'll be seeing anything but stars for a while, Master Jedi!
(Boris turned frantically around only to see a glimpse of the Mandalorian's club before his vision went dark)
(The other Mandalorians came stealthily from the jungle as Boris sunk to the ground)
Mandalorian Leader- Alright, pack him up with the others! I want them secured and ready for my interrogation as soon as possible! Now move!
Mandalorians- At once clan leader! Hail Mandalore!
Amazing! You certainly do deserve more attention for this series. It is excellent! Glad to see Boris - er - knocked out? Well it's good to see him in the comic again. Sad about Dackr and Rhenn. They were my favorite villains from the series.
