Cause and effect: The Grand Inquisitor (Imperials, those involved)

Post by Lady Kota » Thu Nov 07, 2019 10:44 pm

Months after the dreadnaught was taken to Outpost 8675309

Bastion (across the Inquisitor building)

Brutus stood as the Grand Inquisitor, all Inquisitors were called to come this day. It was supposed to be a Grand day, a museum was being opened in honor of the Inquisitor branch. He had personally overseen the construction and placement. Brutus wanted to make sure that it demonstrated the glory of what they strive for as a essential tool to fight force users. They were not sith and they were not Jedi. He had been told of high Inquisitor Prazutis exploits, he didn't approve of the use of darkness. 'Nor would she.' He thought. "We are gathered today to open the Inquisitor museum. They have provided more security to the Empire and to the citizens." A speaker said. The ribbon was cut and the museum was open.

Upon entering guests would see two statues as one, Captain Doren Vassyl and Lord regent Argus Kraiov. Without these two the Inquisitors simply wouldn't exist. There were small sections for each of the Inquisitors, telling the achievements of each. Brutus continued on, even with his own section, none of them mattered to him. He entered a huge wing, this wing was labeled the first Inquisitor. A huge statue stood in the center of the wing, it was of a female Inquisitor. The plaque at its base said, The first Grand Inquisitor, around the wing was history of her and her achievements, they far out shadowed the other Inquisitors. Brutus stopped at a small display, her replica, replica of the armor she wore, and weapons. The plaque here told guests this, it also said M.I.A. a fact that the Empire hadn't been able to fix.

Prazutis had been sent the mandatory invitation to attend the museum's opening about a month prior to the event. He had been in the corporate sector when he had received it, and as such, remained in the area until it was time he left for Bastion.

Upon arrival to the opening, Prazutis could feel the gazes of the inquisitors around him, both normal and High. It seemed he had indeed begun to make a name for himself, and although it was nothing but positive for his work itself, his methods still alienated him from his so-called "allies" in the inquisitorious. Already he was always on guard in case an antarian ranger was hidden amongst the imperial ranks, or perhaps a rogue agent was present. But even around the inquisitorious, it felt like at any moment, they would strike, and he would have to fight for his own life against the people he was supposed to be fighting shoulder to shoulder with.

Prazutis, however, pushed these thoughts aside as he entered the museum as one of the last visitors to pass through the doors. Throughout the museum, people examined the inquisitor sections, in awe and pride. Even a couple stopped to look at Prazutis' own section, although he cared not to recap the success he had recently, as it would only remind him of his failures as well. But while he took a look at a section of the museum for "The First Inquisitor," a thought came to his mind. Brutus, the high inquisitor acting as grand inquisitor temporarily, was closely examining the displays...

He wondered how powerful the Grand Inquisitor really was. If they could have trained someone like Brutus, although his ideals were his own... how strong does Prazutis have to be to truly become a worthy warrior for the Empire?

Prazutis stepped into the section, saying not a word, but looking over the displays and plaques as well.

A display of her designing and help constructing the Inquisitor building, another display told the story of how she stopped Lord Tormentous and his band from hijacking a supply convoy. At the time Argus was captain and Doren, commander, yet another display told her escorting the young Emperess here. Brutus couldn't include the droids she built or the dark relics within the Inquisitor building. However these were no small feats as far as he was concerned.

He carefully watched Neive, Brutus was not as stupid as the last time they had encountered each other. Course then again Neive wasn't a Sith any more. Still it was Brutus's job to keep the Inquisitor in check, to make sure that they where to the rules set down from her. He would have to figure out how to do it with Prazutis.

Prazutis thought to himself, looking over the displays on the other side of the room from the other High Inquisitor. The sort of power that he wanted, he had reached for before, but had failed. The final step to understanding the intricate workings of the Force, to harness its unnatural darkness, its chaos and wrath, into a weapon that he hoped to use to destroy those who would oppose the Empire. The thought was a nice one... but not an easy one, he thought.

The High Inquisitor’s eyes were on him, Prazutis realized after a moment. Although he gave no visual recognition, he did feel the gaze of the force user on his back. This man was at equal stature with his own, although he had taken the mantle of Grand Inquisitor for public affairs. When not in front of a crowd, he was in the same spot as all other High Inquisitors... pushing to stand out for the Lord Regent, but scared to attempt to become the next leader of the Inquisitorious.

Prazutis had but one reason he had not tried to take the position for himself... and that was his own perception. He didn’t see himself as strong enough... and until he was strong enough, he refused to even consider the Grand Inquisitor title.

Brutus stood pondering what to do about this, when he thought he was a child dressed in white standing in front of the huge statue in the room. Her head seemed to turn to him, her eyes were black and disturbing. "An Imperial news bulletin, the Grand Inquisitor Brutus and captain Doren Vassyl finally have captured the Lady Kota and her crew, more details about the task when we get the details." A reporter said on the holocast. 'Son of a Sithspawn, who the hell leaked that?' He thought. Someone's head was going to roll for this slip up, because it wasn't true they only had her ship. He looked back, the child was gone as if never there at all. (He had a vision just clarifying) "Sir we have the complete message." An officer appeared to Brutus. "Good inform the captain we will met him in his office." He said.


Meanwhile....
Doren had just reached the museum when a holocast appeared. "An Imperial news bulletin, the Grand Inquisitor Brutus and captain Doren Vassyl finally have captured the Lady Kota and her crew, more details about the task when we get the details." A reporter said on the holocast. No one was supposed to say anything about it. A soft crackle on his com. "Now that I have your attention, I suggest you come to the coordinates I send you." A voice said quietly. Doren would recognize that voice immediately, it was Grand Admiral Tann.

Prazutis paused when he heard the announcement, slightly turning his head towards the source of the announcement.

Lady Kota... he remembered a mission that Neive had been apart of when he was a sith, on Dromund Kaas... he had gotten a speeder, set to find this girl who had hidden away within the jungles... but his memory was clouded after a certain point. He wasn’t sure who this lady Kota was, but if she was important enough that Captain- er... Governor, Vassyl to capture himself, then Prazutis assumes it was a pressing issue.

Prazutis turned towards the exit, wishing to gain more information when he saw the very Governor of Silas Karen’s former abode, Doren Vassyl.

Without a word, he approached him, wondering what the concern was right after such news as this had been announced.

Doren was livid. His face made no attempt to disguise the seething anger that reddened his complexion in light of the raving propagandist on the holoscreen. No- any Imperial reporter worth their grit wasn’t so stupid as to try and gerrymander a tale behind the Navy’s back. Someone had obviously cleared this announcement: did they have evidence that the Captain lacked? And if so, why hadn’t he been informed? This was the last thing Vassyl needed today. He’d already had his fill of theatrics with the nauseating museum displays. Surely some high-ranking Moff had pulled this stunt just to irritate him. What’s worse, is that such a calculated jab was definitely provoking its intended reaction. The young Jaeman was about to retreat to his office and seek answers, when a crackling transmission brought him to a halt.

Vassyl’s bewildered brow raised to such a degree it threatened to leap free of his forehead. Tann was alive? Why couldn’t he have just said so?! There was the possibility it was an imposter, of course- but even then, the familiar Chiss accent was very hard to miss. Either way, when the coordinates came in, Doren wasted no time in porting them over to his dataslate. Spinning about, now with a different destination in mind, Vassyl nearly walked straight into the masked inquisitor. “Ah, High Inquisitor- good”, the Captain mumbled curtly, “Your ability for popping up when needed precedes you: follow me, we have pressing work to attend to”. Not bothering to explain, Doren continued on his present course to the landing pad, content with the knowledge his imposing colleague would follow after.

***

After a brief visit to the Victory Destroyer looming in the lower atmosphere, the duo soon left Prakith behind, speeding toward the edge of the system aboard the Sentinel Shuttle Dominator. Not wanting to risk sortieing a full squadron of TIE’s, Doren was content on a single pair of Avengers for an escort. Similarly, rather than test the light armor of the more popular Lambda class, the Captain had opted for the bulkier Sentinel series, confident in the larger shuttle’s ability to dish and deal damage in the event of a trap. “I’m not familiar with the eccentricities of your abilities High Inquisitor”, Doren confessed as the vibrant blue banner of hyperspace overtook their ship, “But whatever measures you can take to broaden your senses- employ them now: we’re going to need all the leads we can get”.

The coordinates wouldn't lead far, they would find a lone shuttle. "Sir there is only a shuttle on our scanner with six life forms, two humans, one chiss, an akk dog, and a ysalamiri. We have a call from them, am I to let it here?" An com officer said. Doren nodded. "A call of force seems unnecessary, but we seek to speak with you face to face. We believe we can help each other, if you allow us." Tann said over the com.



*****
Tann waited for a response, hopefully they would meet face to face. If the Empire decided to blow them out of the sky, then so be it. However Tann was sure that if that happens the Empire would never see the grand Inquisitor again and he was certain that the Empire would go up in fire.

The length of the time Prazutis was by Captain Vassyl's side, he remained silent, as he tended to do. While he was a cunning fighter in his own right, he wasn't brave enough for politics, which was the issue at hand many times when he was with the Captain. Part of him claimed it was just senseless babble spewed from the mouths of bureaucrats, another part saw it as decisions on not only the military plans, but the governing of the citizens who served the Empire. Dismay within the populations was what led to the senseless rebellion that is now the Galactic Alliance, so while strength and fear are one way to rule over the people, perhaps these decisions to keep them well equipped and somewhat enjoying life under the Empire's flag was another method of keeping them under imperial thumb.

In any case, politics didn't seem to be the pressing issue this time around. Prazutis listened intently for a moment before Captain Vassyl gave his word to reach out his senses. He wasn't sure what he was looking for, but in any case, he searched within the force... life was far from them, besides the bodies within the shuttle, the area seemed empty, nothing nearby as they came out of hyperspace.

However, a brief disturbance in the force made Prazutis pause, though it was only a second before it faded, hazed and clouded by something...

"And a Ysalamiri..." Prazutis heard the words and took note. Whoever this was, they didn't want force interference. Prazutis stood ready near the captain, his armor's left glove resting near his lightsaber while his right glove, with the cortosis-laced gauntlet, rested on his belt, mostly covered by his high inquisitor cape, prepared to defend or attack from the moment the shuttle neared.

“I believe you could be a little more grateful I didn’t bring an entire fleet detachment”, Doren hissed over the comm, much to the shuttle pilot’s shock. His superior wasn’t prone to such vocal eruptions- clearly whoever this was, they’d done well to get on the Captain’s bad side. “I also believe you’ll see nothing but the dim interior of a cell for the rest of your days if you can’t offer any useful information”, Vassyl continued, the venom of his voice increasing in volume and tenacity, “And you’ll believe me when I say that’s a tame consequence for all of the trouble your little intelligence stunt has caused”. “Prepare to connect the airlock!”, the young Jaeman growled, turning and giving a curt nod to the High Inquisitor.

It did not take long to connect the two transports. As per procedure and personal pragmatism, Doren was clad in a light breastplate and helmet, his trusted DH-17 holstered snuggler on his right thigh. Much to the chagrin and unease of the naval troopers that had followed the Captain aboard his shuttle, Vassyl insisted that only Prazutis accompany him to the foreign vessel. As steam billowed out from the depressured midpoint of the two ships’ exterior airlocks, Doren grimace became visible almost immediately, his earlier anger sustained on his complexion. “I realize you’ve been through quite an ordeal to come all this way”, the Captain concluded, his tone now bordering on a more neutral pitch, “Though what that ordeal remains a mystery to me”.
