Ka'agar entered the room behind Maeve, snarling at seeing her standing there speaking with an unknown alien in close proximity. He stepped forward quickly, flamer raised and more than angry enough to use it until he saw the prize the man held up. His anger vanished like ash in the wind, transforming him instantly into a child gawking at a new toy. The shiny orange blades matched his Omni-claws in color, and the odd configuration enraptured him.

He walked up beside Maeve, eyes transfixed in the blade the man held out and saliva pouring from his open maw.

"What is? I want a new shiny too!" He looked at the human as if he expected the man to simply produce another one from mid-air on the spot.

Maeve smiled when the blade erupted from the thin rod. It was just as Analdrun and she had ordered. It fit the specifications perfectly.

"You've proven yourself not only trustworthy, but capable. That's rare, and valuable." Maeve held out her hand toward him, in askance of a handshake. "I believe Sionis Industries and Analdrun will have a long-lasting relationship." Maeve said to the businessman. "May it be of benefit to us both."

The Vorcha then approached, drooling and wide-eyed and altogether comical.

"Have at it." Maeve said, stepping aside to open the space between the Vorcha and Nick.

It was fortunate that the Vorcha had come. His presence would make her task that much easier.

------------------------------------------------------------

The human smelled like fear, and that ignited in the Yahg an instinctual excitement, rushing an impatience into its limbs and throwing it into the wall on the three separate occasions that the human had eluded him.

This strategy was not working. The Yahg snorted. He stood still now, and watched the wary human stare from across the arena.

The crowd's roars filled the enormous alien's mind and echoed his own desire.

Destroy him. Tear his limbs. Crack his body like it were a brittle branch. Skin him. Taste him. Devour him.

The Yahg took a step forward, thudding against the marble flooring. Its fingers fluttered in anticipation and it slowly, steadily moved towards the human.

Nick smiled, if there's one thing he learned from all his years, there'll always be a need for more weapons when it comes to criminal groups, and establishing a secure trade connection with someone like Analdrun will be very benefitial.


he shook Maeve's hand and told her "Wonderful, the rest of shipment is waiting at the spaceport to be delivered."

As the Vorcha approached Nick when Maeve spoke to him, his guards readied their weapons, preparing to tear the vorcha apart if he got too close. Nick put the rod down on the table toward the Vorcha, so he could get the weapon without causing a shooting.

Alec chose this moment to enter the coliseum. He saw two humans and a Vorcha poking at a metal stick in the corner, but paid them little mind, instead looking up at the brilliantly painted murals on the ceiling. They were a little self-absorbed for his tastes, and he could see where slaves had been used in the painting, brushwork that grew slightly crooked as electroshocks were applied, or where hunger or fatigue had caused a slip, but overall, it was a brilliant piece of artwork.

Trishka watched from the cover of the crowd as the deal went down between Maeve and the unknown businessman.  They sure weren't trying to be subtle doing it out here in the open.  She caught a brief glimpse of the strange vial in the first case, then watched as the businessman demonstrated some hard light modulating melee weapon.

"The hell is with these pirates and their obsession with archaic forms of killing each other?"

The hard light weapon didn't impress her much.  But that vial.  That was interesting.  Some of the most deadly things in the universe come in tiny packages.  Suddenly Tobias sounded on the com.

"Got an ID on the mystery man.  Nikolai Mikhail Sionis, CEO of Sionis Industries.  At least that's what the news would call him.  He's also a mobster with an ego the size of a red giant it seems.  His company produces cutting edge weapons of death, that he is obviously has no problem selling to all manner of psychopaths.  Keep an eye on him."

"Already on it."

"Gaaah hahaha!" Ka'agar snatched the new shiny toy off the table quickly, before they could change their minds, and stared wide eyed at it. A few buttons along the side called to him, and he eagerly pushed one only to snort in surprise as it whirled into a mace. He went slack jawed at first, but a smile slowly spread across his face when he pressed it again and it changed into a sword. He cackled with delight, and began swinging it through the air for practice in combination with one of his Omni-claws.

Kara had managed to remain unnoticed as she followed Trishka, and was lucky enough that the Asari had answered the Question on her mind. She knew that Analdrun was making moves to bring rival Pirate and Merc bands under his tentacles, but now he had corporate backing? Katanask Tech's backing of Lokyan's endeavours had been one of their greatest strengths on the planet, giving them both the money and tech to hold their own and rise meteorically into power, and a testing ground for new inventions unbound by council law, like Juicing.

If someone as immoral, and with a large enough stock of expendable slaves, as Analdrun got that power...

"Boss?" She whispered into her comm.

"Don't worry Kara, we heard." Came Lokyan's voice. "Stay in position, I'm sending Asa. I don't know what Trishka's doing here, but I don't at all like the odds if someone pulls a weapon."

The beast was no beast at all. Intelligence gleamed in those eyes.

Kent felt cold fear as the Yahg slowly, meticulously, corralled him closer and closer to the corner. He could see where this was going, and there was no way out of a confrontation at this point.

The gladiator swallowed through a dry throat. The corner was close enough now. It was run or be killed. He targeted the gap between the Yahg's legs, and raced for it.

His sudden initiative had the desired effect; the Yahg froze for a split second, and in that hesitation, Kent dove straight for it.

Freedom was tasted as he made it through, clambering to his feet. He had been fast. But a great force **** down on his leg, in an instant crushing his limb into the ground, completely flattening it. 'That's not how I expected that to feel' passed his mind.

More than broken, it was destroyed. Kent made to run again, propelling himself forward with both hands and one leg, a futile effort. The Yahg's hands encircled his sides, raised the gladiator upwards, perpendicular to it's swollen head and Kent screamed in pain and terror.

His hand, outreached towards the beast, was chomped right down the middle. The beast made a clean bite, chewing right through bone, like a knife through butter. Then it bit down again, halfway, sucking off the rest of the muscle and tendon and meat from all the way up to just below his elbow.

Kent's screams grew ragged, but he kept screaming. A useless protest.

The beast's hungry, bright eyes squinted, a hunger and joviality to it. The crowd was going mad, a roar that deafened Kent's ears. A strange, three-stretched grin pulled across the creature's face.

Perhaps it thought it had already won. Perhaps it wanted to savor the infinitesimal approval of the raging crowd.

But the beast had gotten slow as it opened its mouth wide and turned towards the audience. It slowly lowered Kent towards its wide open mouth. The creature aimed to bite his head clean off.

Kent saw death in the darkness. A gaping abyss seeking to consume him.

It was a familiar sight.

He punched his good hand forward, straight into the beast's mouth. It reeled backwards, coughing, disoriented. It hacked once more, recovering, glaring hatefully at Kent.

"Human will pay for this...." It hissed.

Kent stabbed it right in the eye with the exposed bone of his right hand.

He was sure he'd reached brain.

The Yahg fell, with the gladiator on top.

--------------------------------------------------

Maeve smirked at the Vorcha's silly movements.

A quiet laugh escaping her, she inclined her head towards Nick. "Thank you. We will certainly be seeing one another again. And if you need anything during your stay here, you know how to contact me."

Dropping a pat on the Vorcha's back as she passed, Maeve headed towards Analdrun's lounge.

Before reaching it, however, and once they were out of sight and sound from Nick, Maeve turned to see if the Vorcha had followed.

Alec was staring for a while before he remembered why he'd come here. The woman walking away from the stiff in the suit seemed important enough, she even held herself like one of the noble people he remembered meeting during his childhood. Not caring about decorum, he caught up to her with his long, powerful strides.

"'scuse me, your stabliness." He said with his best business smile. "But I'd like to speak to the manager of this establishment. I think you can guess why." He added with a slight movement of his powerful looking Cybernetic Arms, happiness hiding behind the soft red glow of his eyes.

Well that's one way to make an introduction. Shyfly commented from his shoulder.

Ka'agar turned to see who had touched him, snarling and about to tell whoever it was off when he saw Maeve. His anger dropped immediately and he smiled broadly before following her. He had never been given anything so useful or nice before, and found he lied this new posting far, far more than he'd ever thought possible

Big pit fights, lots of blood, new shiny things... Will like it here. He nodded and snorted happily, staying close to her and still toying with his new weapon.

Maeve eyed the intrusive human disdainfully. "I can't help you."

She glanced at the Vorcha, and ignited her omnitool, typing in a message while turning a cold shoulder on the human.

------------
Gar
Distract Sobakov. The assassin with Analdrun.
Give me an excuse to touch him.

------------

She sent it.

"Check your mail, Vorcha." Maeve said once Ka'agar's omnitool had lit up.

Ka'agar blinked in confusion at his Omni-tool flaring up, distracting him from playing with the bright orange sword mace thing. He slapped at what he thought was the accept button for the message and read it, squinting at it and trying to make sense of what she meant. He opened his mouth to ask what was going on when it dawned on him, leaving a wicked yet stupid smile on his face.

Ooooh. Human wants to stab someone! Must keep quiet, so they do not know! He huffed in excitement, hoping to get into some fighting and nodding to Maeve eagerly. Ka'agar crept forward, looking for the man she had mentioned poked his shoulder. Hard.

"You! Alien! Not like you! Think you need to go in pit!"

"Hey lady!" Alec called out, "You don't know what you're missing out on here. After all, I'm an entertainer. And I know exactly what your boss needs in his murdering entertainment." He added with a slightly annoyed smile. "I imagine he'd give you a little raise if you were the one to introduce us."

Ignoring the stranger's unmerited claims, Maeve shut the double-door behind her and the Vorcha as they entered Analdrun's viewing booth, and it locked into place.

She watched the Vorcha approach Sobakov, and moved into place beside Analdrun.

Sam looked down on the outcome of the fight from his position next to Analdrun. A smirk appeared on his face as the champion stood over the dead Yahg. Sam turned his attention back to his levitating companion.

"Well Analdrun, what would you like me to do for you?"

Sam devoted a small portion of his attention to Maeve and the Vorcha, who had just returned.
