Cast of Characters:

“Execute Order 66.“
With these words a shock wave occurred throughout the galaxy as clone troopers turned on the Jedi and systemically and methodically slain them. This order sealed the doom of the Jedi and reaffirmed the Sith had taken it’s place once again in the galaxy.
Jedi Knight Iso Shen and his apprentice, Dargie Forryl, are part of a squad that is out in the remote jungle world when the order came. The Stormtroopers they were leading had turned on the. Iso Shen had been killed in the process but not taken out more than half of their squad. Dargie battles as well and then manages to kill three more of them before he takes a blaster shot to the head and tumbles off a cliff and into the raging river below.
Dargie awakes along the banks of the river, his head hurts like the dickens. He hears some Stormtroopers approaching since they are searching the area making sure that the Jedi who fell had perished. Dargie proceeds to move into the jungle. Six Stormtroopers are looking for a body, three on either side of the river and a scout in a ship over head keeping an eye in the sky.
Dargie doesn’t understand what happened but he is putting the pieces of the puzzle together, first they were following orders and good friends and suddenly a switch had been turned and the Stormtroppers had turned on them. He hides in blends in to his surroundings as two Stormtroopers walk past, the third one stops and inspects the ground and that when Dargie strikes. Since he has the surprise on the Stormtrooper, Dargie takes him down with one thrust from his light sabre.
The fallen Stormtroopers’ helmet crackles with static the others wanting him to check in, which Dargie then moves off into the surroundings. He moves along and he comes upon a clearing with a small ship had landed and a woman is checking over her ship. Dargie steps from the treeline with his hands up motion, she spins around with blaster in hand and ready to shoot.
“Easy their partner,” she warns. “One step closer and I’ll blast a hole in ya.”
“If you do,” Dargie warns. “You’ll alert the Stormtroopers that are after me.”
And with these words a bond had formed between Tempe Synn, a cyborged pirate, and Dargie Forryl. Well, the friendship wasn’t immediate since Tempe was cautious and she heard that the Jedi along with Stormtroopers were in “cahoots”. But, that changes drastically when blaster fire from the woods and two Stormtroopers come running out with blasters singing their song of combat.
Tempe returns fire taking one down, while Dargie deflects and then force push the other Stormtrooper into a bog. Tempe then runs into her ship and begins firing it up, while Dargie glances around and seeing three more Stormtroopers approach. He enters the craft and warns Tempe. She takes off as blasters mark up her ship and she curses, hitting a few switches and firing off some guns in return.
The Majestic Mule takes to the skies and heading straight out of orbit. Tempe tells Dargie to fire off a few shots if they are being pursued. Dargie doesn’t know how to operate the cannons and she gives him instructions as they dodge blaster fire and maneuver through the area. Before taking to the sky. Dargie manages to take down a skiff with three Stormtroopers and the Majestic Mule takes a serious hit but manages to make the jump to hyperspace once they break orbit.
She checks the navigation and notices that there is a spaceport close by where she can put down and do repairs to her ship. Dargie and Tempe discuss what’s going on, after a “newsvid” update on the screens about the Jedi deemed enemies of the republic and a bounty is put on the heads of those who have “fled like the cowards they are”. Which boils the blood of Dargie but Tempe tells him to cool his jets and deal with it one day at a time.
They land at Alter Outpost and dock in a bay. Tempe tells Dargie that if he is going to dress in a way that shows everyone that he is a Jedi be prepared to do some fighting. Dargie agrees that he should change the style of dress and changes his outfit, it’s a good thing that Tempe had some men’s clothing in his size. Dargie keeps his lightsabre with him but hidden in his tunic.
Tempe is going about repairing her ship as Dargie explores the outpost some, and notices that a bounty hunter has a body of another Jedi. A young woman in his cart and about to bring it to his ship. Dargie follows him to his bay and notices that it’s quiet and empty and then asks the fellow about his “catch”. The bounty hunter chuckles and says it was easy pickings, youngling didn’t know what hit her. Which Dargie nods and turns to walk away since he realizes that if he does something it just might alert people to the presence of another Jedi and he doesn’t want that.
He heads back to the docking bay where the Majestic Mule is and contemplates his next course of action.
