Lokyan did not enjoy these meetings, yet they were necessary, so long as peace was to remain between the two Pirates. As was custom, he left behind the majority of his posse to stand outside the door, bringing only the two most senior Shinobi with him, one male and one female. He took the seat with practiced dignity, the two warriors taking their places behind him.

"So, Analdrun." He Began. "What is our first order of business?"

"This one wonders if the other enjoyed the view?" Persisted Analdrun.

"And I wonder if you've ever enjoyed a trip to Kahlsun, back on Khaje." Lokyan shot back. "I hear the Hanar have all but Quarantined the area, since they can't find out how to reverse the dehydrator, I wonder what my people did with the corpses when they moved in..."

A silence followed Lokyan's heated rebuttal, a tense collection of time wherein Maeve and Thema both put their hands to their weapons, preparing for the combat that these 'talks' so often exploded into.

But Analdrun raised a tentacle, one of its fingers waving a 'no, no' to them. "No, no.... peace. Peace. This one did not mean to offend... The other is much too quick to anger.... but this one was prepared for the other's hatred and will magnanimously take no offense. This one is a neighbor to the other, and while neighbors do not always get along, this one hopes today will be a day that the neighbors become friends.

      This one hopes that the other enjoyed the view. The slaves that the other saw from above, this one has bought and paid for all of them. Presently, they all belong to this one."


Analdrun paused for a long moment, and its tentacle slid towards Thema. The black woman nodded, and crossed the room to open the drawer to the far desk, returning with a datapad and handing it to the awaiting hanar.

"What's this about, Analdrun?" Lokyan asked, cocking an eyebrow. "I'm well aware of your... Business practices."

"A businessman.... This one is indeed a businessman."

The hanar slid the datapad across the table, stopping it right in front of the drell.

"Contained in this one's datapad is the contract for every drell slave that traveled most recently on this one's ship. This one would like the other to carefully read each identification number and see the genuinity of the document."

Lokyan's eyes scrolled down the list, taking note of every slave about to enter the hell of Analdrun's employ, when he noticed something off with the paperwork. The Hanar had neglected to sign for ownership. "Well, this is certainly a lot of new... Employees. Yet, you've forgotten to sign for ownership." He placed the datapad back on the desk. "You never ask me for business advice, Analdrun." He said, moving his gaze.

"Yes. The drell slaves." The blue veins fluctuated in excitement. "While it is rude to mention, this one would like to remind the captain Lokyan of his attacks on many of this one's slave ships. Rather than allow the blood and war mongering to heighten and much credits to be lost in a foolish battle, this one proposes an alternative..." The hanar pushed the datapad towards the drell once more. "This one will give the other these slaves, and the opportunity to be the first to purchase every drell slave that passes through this colony."

Lokyan was shocked. The rights to rescue his people as they arrived, at the cost of every other race that came through the meat grinder. As much as he despised slavery, and regardless of the race, he had the opportunity to rescue thousands instead of hundreds. Of course, the money brought in by Katanask Technologies allowed him to purchase slaves to free at will, the main obstacle had always been the Hanar, who would shuffle auction dates, or drive the prices too high to be feasible. With this guarantee, he wouldn't have to raid Slave Transports to rescue the people within, at least, not the ones belonging to Analdrun.

"It's a deal, Analdrun. I will cease all raids on your slave ships. Of course, this means you'll gain a larger stake, since I'm not going to lay off your competitors." he said with a smile. Maybe he wouldn't torture the jellyfish as much when the planet was entirely under his control...

(Alright, some of you are going to recognize this next piece, as I'm doing some copy/paste from my old material.  But there is still no better way to introduce this next character.)

Tobias milled about the bar as the stench smoke, alcohol, and engine grease permeated through the air.  If he was going to find a pilot crazy enough to follow him, it would be here.  So far however, anyone he told his story to ran in the other direction faster than a Salarian on methamphetamine.  He had about given up hope when he just so happened to stumble upon quite an interesting conversation between a Baratian and a Hanar.

“This one has noticed that the sum of the compensation you have provided is merely half of the agreed upon amount. Were you displeased with its piloting performance?” The Hanar spoke in that eerily precise and echoing voice that their race was known for, bioluminescent glows accompanying his every word.

“Nah you were actually pretty damn good. But that’s all you’re getting. Now take it and get the hell out of here you damn jellyfish.” The Batarian dismissed the Hanar like a child.

“This one would like to remind you that all Hanar possess toxic stinging cells within their external appendages. If you do not provide the agreed upon sum, it would feel no guilt in inserting one of its appendages at such an extreme depth in you rectal cavity that you would experience the taste of, as you eloquently said, “jellyfish.” It would be a most unpleasant experience.”

Wait...Did he just threaten to stick his tentacle up that guy's ass?  Tobias thought to himself.

“What? Just…get the hell out of here.” The Batarian replied, visibly angrier this time. Clearly he did not get the message.

“It appears cultural differences in linguistics did not convey this one’s threat adequately to your primitive temporal lobes. Perhaps this would be a more suitable gesture.” And almost as soon as the Hanar finished that sentence, one of his front tentacles reached up into the underside of his body, retrieving an M-3 Predator pistol. The Baratian’s eyes shot open. You could see that he clearly didn’t expect this. And so the Hanar squeezed his pink jelly-like appendage, sending a round into the kneecap of the Batarian. The crack of the shot caused the bar to momentarily pause and look in his direction. But an instant later everyone was back to their business.

“What the ****!” The Batarian shouted, clutching his bloodied and mangled kneecap.

“This one urges you to provide the agreed upon sum, or its next shot will be directed towards your frontal lobe.”

“Ok ok! Here! Just leave me the hell alone!” The Batarian tossed a credit chit in the direction of the Hanar, to which it deftly snatched from the air with one of its many free tentacles.

I think I've found my pilot  Tobias thought as he walked up towards the Hanar.

"Excuse me my Hanar friend, but can I get your name?"

The floating jellyfish turned to face Tobias, or at least whatever was considered to be the front of him turned to face.

"This one's face name is Clintofantoma.  But you may refer to it as Clint."  The Hanar spoke/echoed out into the room.

"A pleasure.  I am Captain Tobias Westen, and I may have a job suitable to your skills."

"This one simply has two questions.  Does it pay well?  And is it dangerous?"

Tobias was going to like his new friend.

Analdrun hummed its approval as the Drell signed ownership of the Drell slaves.

"This one will send the slaves by transport to the other's territory..."

Thema crossed to the door as the Hanar spoke, typing in the unlock codes. The door hissed open, and she returned to her standing spot behind Analdrun.

"This one is glad that the business has concluded positively and hopes that future interactions will be equally beneficial to both."

"As am I, Captain." The Drell replied with a small bow before leaving, gesturing for his warriors to follow. Once more he walked through the glass tunnel, taking note of the slaves once more, wondering how many would join their fellows in Kalihi, his side of the colony. After he was aboard his shuttle and out of the Slave ship, he brought up his Omni-Tool and called Hyun. "Hyun, meet me at Kalihi, we've just saved hundreds of souls, maybe thousands if this works out properly."

"Hai." came the response, and he hung up, then opened another channel, revealing a face that didn't hide any disdain.

"What is it... Captain?" said Michael Killigrew.

"I need you to step up the raids on Terminus Slave ships, but avoid Analdrun's. We need to make up for a cease-fire I agreed to."

"That went well, sir." Thema said.

Analdrun's agreement was clear. "The gullibility of this one's associate shows his predictable lack of business sense. The inferior being will not be a thorn in this one's side for much longer."

The Hanar floated to its desk, tapping the console and springing six keyboards, three on either side of its body, into being. As its fingered tentacles typed in commands to the console, the Hanar addressed its loyal subjects.

"This one must leave Rouger for a short extension of time.... Thema, this one requires the other at its side, yet... Maeve. This one does not desire that the other would spend time within a ship. Rather, this one would like the other to find a capable assassin and bring him into this one's service. Do whatever the other must. This one knows the assignment to be within Maeve's capabilities."

Maeve's omni tool lit up, a notification that a message had been received. She tapped it, opening the file.

The face of a middle aged man with ruffled, long hair and a visor over his eyes was accompanied by a collection of text.

DOSSIER: Samuil Sobakov

And a description of the man's recent history. Torturing victims and advertising for his skills online. It was just the kind of man Analdrun loved to obtain; sadistic, immoral, psychotic and objectively inclined.

The hanar spoke as Maeve browsed the dossier.
"This one is not usually comfortable to send the other away, but knows this is needed. This one sent its usual recruiters and found the bodies deceased. Maeve is the only one this one can count on."

"Yes, sir..." Maeve murmered.

Asa kept watching the man, and as she did a small dossier appeared on her Retinal HUD implant, and the more she read, the greater the feeling in her gut grew. If it wasn't already the reason for his being there, this Samuli character was a prime recruit for Analdrun, an Assassin that felt zero remorse. If she did not act soon, her Captain's adversary would gain a wild card.

Silently, she rose from her table and sat opposite the man, her hood covering everything above the nose. "We know who you are, Samuli Sobakov..."

A comment from the other side of the booth snapped Sam back to reality. He looked to the hooded individual, putting his hands on his lap.
