"...Once you've prepared your blades, we will have a guest joining us for your next training session."

A group of troopers were practicing their own bladework in the gymnasium as Prazutis exited his quarters. Once more, he began dialing down his lightsaber to non-lethal concentrations of plasma in his blade. Seeing his pilot making his way towards the gymnasium as well, Prazutis nodded.

"Pilot. The training droid has been installed. You can use it if you'd like, but I'm about to be conducting a training session with the commander for a group of troopers. They'd all like to be able to hold their own with a blade, but they don't realize that holding your own is only possible for a select few."

Prazutis kept his lightsaber in his left hand as he walked towards the gym area.

"If you would like, you may join us, and spar with me alongside the other troopers. And after, perhaps take note of my technique to improve on your own against these men."

Prazutis would never admit it, but he honestly would like to see Etro become at least somewhat versed in lightsaber skills. It would provide leaps and bounds in fighting Jedi, having a pilot who could fight as well, and with more than just a few blaster bolts at that. Prazutis always said that sending troopers to kill a Jedi or a Sith would only end in massacre. But having someone like etro, who had potential to be capable against force adepts, at least in lightsaber duels, could possibly be a turn for the better for Prazutis. Although he didn't doubt his own ability, he would rather his pilot be able to defend himself in case Prazutis was fighting back at his ship rather than in the cities or other areas of the planets he's been visiting.

Solle was never the one to be the kind of person who regrets making decisions on the fly but learning ground combat isn't something a pilot like himself should do. Granted, a pilot is nothing without his or her ship and with the small TIE ships cockpits not giving most pilots enough room to carry a E-11, mostly a blaster pistol or maybe a vibro blade if you're smart enough. Not only the small cockpits but how most standard TIE ships carry no ship whatsoever, making them flying coffins, with enough force you could throw a rock at one of these things and it'll explode. So why is he taking these combat training sessions, What was the point in doing any of this? The wonder pilot thought as he examined his blade that was provided by the training regulations. He was definitely more fond of a blaster than a close quarter weapon.

He stood about, awaiting for the instructor to begin the session until he spotted a pilot. " Glad too see I'm not the only flyer here." The flying ace commented, it was relieving having someone who was a flyer to be in this class.

Etro took in the words of the inquisitor as he approached. It was quite interesting that more troopers had decided that they wanted to train with blades as well. If they could use them well enough, a group of stormtroopers well versed in close combat fighting might even have a chance at taking on a force user. He looked to the inquisitor.

I think I’ll join you and the others today, sir.

As he moved to join the group facing Prazutis, he took hold of the training saber so graciously lent to him. This was definitely going to be an interesting day of training. Although he tried not to show it, Etro was filled with anticipation. Today was going to be a real test on how far he had come with his training so far. Looking over to his left, the pilot spotted another man clad in a black flight suit. Etro didn’t know how he had missed him before. This session wouldn’t be very useful if he didn’t focus. He gave a friendly nod to his fellow pilot and returned his attention to his superior, waiting for instructions.

Prazutis nodded to the pilot before he took his own place, standing beside the trainer of the troopers as they got into formation, leaving 2 spots in their formation open for the two pilots joining them.

“Troopers. Today, while I am teaching you, we now have a training participant much more... lively, than any of our training droids. Meet High Inquisitor Prazutis.”

Prazutis didn’t move as the trainer spoke, silent as he always was when dealing with speeches or other matters that require a silver tongue like what’s needed from higher ranked military figures.

“We will soon hold a gauntlet of sorts with the High Inquisitor. The first session, each trooper will step forward, one at a time, with their vibrio blades in hand, and spar with Prazutis. His lightsaber is set to non-lethal, so be aware he will not hesitate to strike you down rather than to hold you to a yield.”

Prazutis looked over the troopers, not seeing any chance in their helmets’ faces, but seeing beyond that, he felt the mix of fear and eagerness associated with the young men that always want the melee training. The vets would always rather hang back with their blasters, but these men... the young, the hungry...

They were always the ones that got themselves killed.

“We will go in formation. First, private Helprin. Then, Ozrok, Etro, and so on.”

Prazutis let the first trooper step forward, observing the two pilots behind him in this training gauntlet only a second before igniting his lightsaber, focusing on the trooper in front of him.

“Ready... begin!” The trainer called from the side.

The trooper immediately charged forward, bearing his blade as Prazutis walked forward, knowing he would have to take it easy with these men.

A few swings of their blades, connecting with one another before Prazutis’ laid back defense went against him as he had to pull his head back a bit, the vibro blade almost catching his helmet.

The trooper laughed a bit, shaking his head.

“That all you got?”

Prazutis watched the trooper before he brought his blade up again, ready to go.

Prazutis slammed his blade against the trooper’s, pushing it up above the trooper’s head. He then quickly stepped behind the man, grinding his blade across the back of the man’s legs and sending him to his knees. The trooper’s arms fell back down as Prazutis grabbed his chin, driving the non-lethal saber into the trainee’s chest. Although it didn’t push all the way into him, the trooper soon fell in a heap on the metal floor.

“Your arrogance is our undoing. Always overestimate your opponent. It is your greatest weapon to be prepared for worse than what meets you.”

Prazutis flicked his wrist, the ball of white armor and flesh slid across the floor to lay beside the trainer, who just sighed and shook his head at the level of failure by the trooper.

Prazutis looked to the two pilots, Ozrok at the start of the line to face Prazutis.

Who’s next?
