It had been decades since the lone individual wandering the surface of the world of Kalee, had taken the time to relax, to explore new worlds.  Deciding it was past time to seek out new life and investigate new civilizations . . . well, new to her, at least . . . she'd closed her eyes and pointed a finger at a random destination in a holographic display of the galaxy.  Days later, the armored woman found herself wandering aimlessly on a world that held history older then she was, a fact which intrigued her to no end.  Her features hidden by the helmet she wore, her race hidden by the armor she wore, the only weapons she visibly carried were her two heavy blasters and her custom-made Mandalorian saber.  So far in her wanderings, she hadn't yet encountered a single individual . . . though she sensed that would not remain the case much longer.


Emerging from the jungle which had been her landing zone in a manner of speaking, Sara found herself standing not far from a series of cliffs, causing her eyes to gleam with sudden interest, as a thought slid through her mind.  Very shortly, she was acting on the new unspoken desire, and had begun climbing down the sheer face of the nearest cliff without the benefit of appropriate climbing gear.  It was a risky, reckless thing to do, but she was feeling decidedly adventurous today.  So she continued her path downward, her focus more on the rush of climbing without the proper gear, then reaching any particular location below.


However, since she didn't have any climbing gear, Sara was using the Force here and there in small ways . . . and wasn't bothering to hide her presence in the Force, either.  Which would make it easy enough for someone to sense her, and track her down.

The bottom of the cliff was a rocky valley, offering little in terms of flora to cover those who were at the bottom from those who looked from above. But to the thirteen people that had gathered there, along with the few dozen who stood a little away, it did not matter. On Kalee, noe a single one of them currently had cause for fear. The Sith Sorceress knew that it would not always be so; that whatever individual danger might happen here or there on the planet now was at large nothing compared to what might happen not too long from now.

She stood the center, the planet's harsh sun rays beating down on her pale skin. On her body she adorned a white robe, setting her apart from the Kaleesh that had gathered around her. Her apostates they were, the twelve who believed the Kaleeelean gods had sent her to free them of the Empire's grasp.

One by one she went to them, giving each her blessing as she placed a hand on their heads. They helped in keeping the peace; the planet had it's freedom of culture, and its culture of warring tribehood was much encouraged by the Sanguine Potestatem, down to a point in which her people knew how to move the locals to unite for a common cause of war elsewhere.

As she did her round of blessing, Nessarose blinked. She could sense the presence. And she knew she had sensed it before. But what? And where? And who? She would know soon enough... For now though, she resumed her round, all the while keeping tabs on the person's signature.

A Warrior Warden, that was his new title, it went along great with his Gladiator rank and now he was defined as someone more than a brute who fought in wars. Maybe it had been given to him just to make him feel better about how things had been going, but that was not how Nessa did things, she was more methodical than that. He knew he was up for the challenge but he was not used to being off of Endelaan. For so long he had resided there that moving to a new planet was very strange to him. In some ways, it was nice, in other ways, not so much. Still, here on Kalee, he was the top dog unless Nessa was on the planet. And, of course, she was today.

Sitting behind a small desk he had gathered for himself, Amarant ran his finger along the hilt of Nex, lost in thought and wondering how he was going to gain the loyalty of all the warriors of Kalee. His thoughts were distracted by something, an unknown force signature, what the hell was it doing here? Only a few days in and he already had people coming onto the planet without authorization, and to top it all of, Nessa was there. Great, he was sure that was going to go over well. No matter, he would handle it himself.

Rising from his seat, he dropped the sword into its sheath, and he strolled out of the building to meet his horse. Always ready to ride, Amarant hopped onto Bodish, and in a flash they were off in search of the unfamiliar presence. He was sure Nessa had already felt it so he did not take the time to mention it to her, he wanted to respond before she said anything to him, he wished to look competent in her eyes so that when she thought about giving him the title of Warden she would know she made the right decision.

The ride did not take long, as Bodish was a fast horse, and before he knew it he was climbing down the side of his horse and looking up a rather large mountain. He could see the person in question but he still was unsure of who they were. "I suppose today is a great day for a climb." Amarant shouted up at them, letting them know he was there, and he would be waiting for them at the bottom. Oh how he hoped today would not result in any battles.

A brief pause was Sara's only reaction to the man's voice as he spoke at her, though an unseen smile of amusement flitted across her face before disappearing, barely a moment or two before she released her grip on the sheer face of the cliff and pushed off.  The movement drew a faint cloud of dust and a shower of rocks and pebbles that went bouncing downward, even as she allowed gravity to take over, plummeting downward until only a foot of separation was between her armored form and the ground.  Drawing lightly upon the Force, it cushioned her landing before she straightened from the near-crouch she'd adopted upon impact with the ground, and dusted herself off before turning her attention towards the man nearby.


"It's always a great day for a climb."  With that, she fell silent as her arms folded over her chest, waiting to see what happened next.

"What is wrong with you people!?" Announced a slightly shrill, fed up voice from the bushes before a very worn down, very tired, very messy looking Maybe Williams stumbled in to the ground, finding herself yelling at the two climbers. "It's never a good day for a climb!" She sulked loudly. Maybe was looking a right state, even by her usual standards. Her high heeled boots were plastered in mud and dirt, the leather scraped and torn all over, there was a twig in her hair, which itself was a mess, her leather jacket was tied loosely around her waist, her long fake nails were cracked and broken, the polish chipped all over, and she had a bump on her head where she had slipped and head butted a rock.

"I've been trying to climb this thing all day, and I can't get any higher than here!" She held her hand up just past her breasts. Clearly, Maybe was struggling with climbing. She'd taken a job looking here for rare artefacts, some of them would pay her rent for a month if she could find them, but she'd encountered problems when it had become apparent Maybe was about as well suited to jungle exploration as, well, as she was to anything else...


"It's impossible to get up there!" She whined loudly.

A chuckle was Sara's immediate reaction to the newcomer's words and appearance, though her amusement was belied by the folding of her arms over her armored chest, followed by a few moments of silence.  Lifting a hand, she flicked her fingers in the woman's direction before speaking.  "Nothing is impossible.  You just weren't trying hard enough."  Then her gaze shifted back to the man who hadn't yet replied, though a sudden sense of familiarity elsewhere caught her attention.
