Goodbye, Sh'shuun

Post by Dixon » Wed Jun 17, 2020 6:28 pm

The shuttle landed on the Serenno docking bay, and Dixon stepped out. Those steps had been his first steps toward his destiny, and a galaxy full of adventures.

It felt like he had just left his jungle home of Sh'Shuun minutes ago, and with it, life as he knew it. He was alone now. Just him, and his few possessions: A Model 57 Blaster Pistol, a stone knife, and a handful of credits. Won't last long, I should probably get more as soon as I can Dixon reminded himself. It sure wasn't much considering he had been alive 75 years, of course that was a long time for a human, but Dixon was no human, despite his looks. He was a skinshifter, known as Shi'Ido. They could live for hundreds of years, and take on nearly any form. They also had telepathy, but Dixon was not a strong user of such power. It comes with age, of course. His disguise seemed to hold up well. He saw his reflection on the window before he had stepped out of the shuttle. He was a nearly perfect, but pale human. He had medium length black hair, slicked back, and dark brown eyes. He looked healthy overall, despite the paleness.

Suddenly Dixon realized he had no clue where to start. He knew about the wars, and the history of the galaxy. He particularly liked the CIS during the great clone war, but they were no more. He liked that they saw an unstable and corrupt republic, influenced by the jedi, and broke off to fix it. Sure, Democracy was good. Even Sh'shuun was a democracy, but all good things can be ruined. The CIS had the strength to not only see that, but fight it. Sadly they failed, but their efforts led to reform. The Jedi were nearly all killed, and the Republic reformed into a strong Empire. If Democracy can't work, at least then there was a pure, incorrupt government.

But history and personal opinions did not fix his dilemma. Unsure of where to go, he was sure that he was going to change the galaxy one way or another, and this was his path. He took a step forward. "Onwards..to destiny." he said aloud.

Serenno, probably as away as one could be sent to check on some trouble. Brutus sighed, he knew why they sent him here, they wanted him to clear his head for a little while. So sending him on a task that a squadron could handle was the way to do it. He walked quietly with his guards in tow. An official met him at the bay, bowing respectfully. "Grand Inquisitor, we were delighted to hear you would be arriving and have everything ready to hopefully solve our problem here." The official said. "Show me so I can end this problem quickly." Brutus said.

"Destiny. Where the heck is that? Dixon, you idiot!"

The skinshifter said to himself. He decided the local bar may be a good start, he could find some food, and people that may be able to point him in the right direction. He knew he'd need an apartment or house, or somewhere to live, but where he could find even that was a mystery. He'd need to ask around.

Furthermore, he may find someone that openly (or at least with the aid of alcohol) supports the return of the CIS. If he did, they would be the ideal target to become friends with. Two men with a shared belief often got along well.

Finally, he was looking for a job. A good job. It didn't need to be a clean job, but it needed to pay. A handful of credits wouldn't go far, especially on Serreno as Dixon understood it. How would he advertise himself though? It was probably best to keep his abilities a secret, but at the same time, a lot of people may want the aid of a skinshifter.

With his mind full of such questions, he made his way toward what looked to be a bar.

"You see that the shipments have been coming up short. They are counted upon leaving and somewhere on route they lose some. We have tried everything, shifting guards, recounting from the point of origin five times by different counters, no reports of a raid, no reports of a stop. We just don't have any answers, every time we get the same stories." The officer said. "So you believe some sort of disturbance is involved or something you are missing." Brutus said. "We believe so yes." The officer said. "I'll follow the next shipment, but I believe we might need an inconspicuous party for this as well." Brutus said. "Are you sure sir? Hiring someone outside of the Empire is highly irregular." The officer said. "Simply post a job needing special talents, we will hide the Empire fact. Simple cloths, unmarked container, let's see if whatever is going on happens under a rouse." He said.

A job poster is placed in various places, simply saying. Need work come to the red building by the bakery. Will be paid well, only those with special talents apply.

"Need work come to the red building by the bakery. Will be paid well, only those with special talents apply."

"Finally! A lucky break." Dixon thought, reading the fresh message posted on the bar's wall. With a now-full stomach, he quickly looked for the bakery. It was hard to see..it wasn't dark when he went to eat, but now it was rapidly getting dark. Once finding it, he looked around. Spotting the Red building, he walked toward it. It was a brick building with dark windows, or at least they looked dark.

Was it abandoned? Unsure, Dixon entered the building. It didn't seem like the best building to offer a job in, but who cares? Credits are credits.

The building held many people upon entering, they seemed to be busy with moving things. One desk sat on the far end, a line in front with someone saying next with the line moving. On the back end of the desk was Brutus himself, he wore a brown outfit, nothing that would hint his position or who he worked for. "List your skills and don't waste my time with the ordinary." He said to Dixon. Though the empire could do this, he wanted to eliminate all possible answers as to why this was happening.

"Well, I'm a good shot with a blaster, I think outside of the box, and... He contemplated telling about the shape shifting and I shapeshift."

Truth was probably another good mark on his "traits".

He had entered the building, and was surprised at the amount of people. It had looked abandoned from the outside, but inside it was full of people, mostly humans. As for the man considering hiring him, he seemed normal, and dressed plainly. However, there was something..off...about him. Perhaps it was Dixon's imagination, after all, it had been a long day.

He wondered what the job would be, hoping it didn't require him to command a group of people, or fight up close and personal. He was never a good talker. Just speeches, which he wrote to himself over imaginary things when he was younger. It'd probably be something simple, yet dirty, because a normal job wouldn't require an abandoned-looking building. Although, the flier requesting workers with special skills was quite public. Perhaps a situation where the best place to hide was in plain sight? It seemed that to find more answers, he'd need to wait yet again.
