  1. Reluctant Concessions A joint log from Khre'Riov t'Vatrix, Enarrain N'Dak, & Enarrain t'Temarr In the Enarrain’s chambers, L’haiy t’Vatrix lifted her sword down from its place behind her desk, turning in time to see the door close behind t’Temarr and N’Dak. “Everyone take a seat, fhaen,” she ordered, motioning them toward the chairs. Glancing at her desk, she was distracted by a sense of wrongness. Something was missing. When the realization hit, she rounded on N’Dak. “Where are they?!” she asked, clearly agitated. Destorie lifted a brow cautiously. He had made particular effort to avoid changing anything in her chambers. “Hmm?” “The holopictures?! The ios I kept there on the corner of my desk?” Her eyes searched the room to see if they had been moved elsewhere. He exhaled and made his way to the desk. “I put them in the drawer,” he said. “I was worried with the combat, they might get thrown.” She sighed in relief. “May I have them fhaen, I need,” her voice catching for a moment, “I need to see them. Particularly now.” Nodding, Destorie pulled open the drawer and after a few moments, produced the holopictures. “Ie, of course,” he said handing them to her before retreating to the a chair opposite of Laehval. She nodded her thanks to him, reached over and took them from him, and walked across the room over towards the large viewport where she could look at them by herself. As she stood looking at them, she very lightly brushed her fingers across their faces and then held them tight to her. “As I swore when I was sent rhae this mission, if any harm were to come to either of them, especially at the hands of whom we suspected and now have confirmed… to the end of my days, I claim the blood rite of vengeance against the cowards behind this. I will see to it that they pay, by my hand, in this life and forever into the next. Each and every one of them.” Jaw still smarting from t’Vatrix’s kick to her jaw, Laehval sat down sullenly. She’d likely have a wicked bruise later, but now she was too proud to show concern for it. Seeing t’Vatrix’s reaction to the holo of her family, she threw Destorie a look as if to say ‘see what I mean’. She believed that the Khre’Riov was clearly overwhelmed with grief and was a danger to herself. It had been months since he had seen either of the two women in the chamber with him now, and he had not fully been prepared for the emotions he felt, both in their reunion and the circumstances that had brought it about. He felt Laehval’s glance but remained neutral. t’Vatrix was clearly upset, but then, he knew she had more than ample reason and he could not fault her for that. Unable to turn back towards either of them just yet, afraid to lose her composure, L’haiy stood and let her thoughts linger on the images for another few minutes in silence. Finally, she walked over to the replicator device, ordered up a pair of items and tossed one of the ice packs over to Laehval for her chin. The other she kept for her own. Laehval caught the pack with a nod of thanks, but held it in her lap rather than using it immediately. Instead, she looked to N’Dak. “I believe au should start. How is it au came to be in command of the Talon? What have au been doing while we were away?” Glancing towards her with his infamously cold expression, he considered possible responses before deciding on a more neutral tone, out of respect for t’Vatrix and the long years of service he had shared with Laehval as well. “Rather simple,” his tone cool, but lacked an edge. “I had come to warn au that au were walking into a trap; but by the time I had arrived hrrau the Talon… au were gone.” “As I had previously been given command of the Talon, the crew au left informed me they were to meet io of the Khre’Riov’s contacts, rhae an undisclosed location. When we arrived, there was na word from au. I assumed command, rhae their suggestion, until au fate could be determined.” He stopped, looking to t’Vatrix and then Laehval. “Does that satisfy au?” Laehval ignored the question. “And since au have assumed command? How has the ship fared? Casualties? Damage?” t’Vatrix moved over behind the desk, setting her holos where she could see both the last image she had taken of her bondmate and son sleeping that last morning, and the other a family portrait of she and Var’lon, both smiling and holding the giggling child by the ocean. Sitting back in the chair to listen to N’Dak’s explanation, she held the icepack up to her own chin, hoping to take some of the swelling out of it as well. “We have time for a status report later,” he said, firmly. “But I am curious about how au ended up in aur current state and why au missed the rendezvous? There were scattered reports of sightings of au, but nothing firm enough to believe. We have been trying to track au, as best we could.” Laehval frowned at his delay, but didn’t force the issue. “We first went to the orbital command station, uncertain of who was in command, and were forced to flee. We took refuge at my family’s vacation home to gather intel, contact allies, and formulate a plan. Unfortunately, we were discovered there and taken prisoner. Galae sympathizers helped us to escape and took us to a secret conclave of other Galae command officers and troops, preparing for an attack on the city.” That still did not explain everything, but he decided not to push too hard for now. “I see,” he thoughtfully stroked at a non-existent beard. “I wish I would have arrived sooner to warn au, but I came as soon as I learned of the trap au were walking into.” “How is it, that au learned of their intentions?” t’Vatrix finally asked. “And why would you feel the need to come assist us? Would na the situation with au family ties, put you in a better stead than you had been in?” “Ie, as au clearly recall,” he said, taking a deep breath. “My father was once a member of the Tal’Shiar. He had participated in some of their earlier plans and had given him their support, rhae the Senate and some monetary contributions. However, as he learned more of their intentions and the involvement of the Othan…” He paused looking away for a moment, clearly uncomfortable about the role his family had helped play in the events that had unfolded over the past months. “He began withholding his support,” he continued. “But learned what he could of their plans in secret. A source tipped him to the plot against the Talon. I was off-world at the time -- I had been given a rather unglamorous assignment, but a small command, rhae a border outpost. He contacted me covertly to tell me of their plans and to tell me he and my mother were going into hiding. He wanted me to rescue Issaha.” “I promised him I would. But even if Issaha had na been rhae the Talon, I would have returned. My honor demanded it.” L’haiy inclined her head at him, understanding the reference, and somewhat surprised he had followed through on the oath he had made to her but a year ago. She had more which she wanted to ask of him, but struggled to find the words. Had his father known of the plotting to put Var’lon in a bad light? To send her off world, even though she had retired? Had he known why Var’lon had been accused of the assassination attempt? The attack upon her child and home? Of the biological weapons? How much had he been involved? She stared at the holopicture, wanting to continue, and found she was unable to just yet. Oblivious to the Khre’Riov’s internal struggle, Laehval pushed on. “And what are your intentions now that we have returned? Escape to be with your family? Will au attempt to retain control of the Talon?” She finally raised the ice pack to her jaw, finding the throbbing pain to be too intense to ignore. “Na,” firm in his resolve. “Of course the Talon belongs to the Khre’Riov, and I will serve in whatever way I am asked; but I will not run away and hide in the face of what the Tal’Shiar and the Othan have done to the Empire ... to this ship.” He decided not to add to himself to that, but the beneath the cold exterior, he felt a sudden fire. t’Vatrix finally spoke. “I will accept return of the Talon back to my command, but it will be understood by the crew that this ship will have a certain mission to undertake, na matter that some may call it suicide. I intend to take this fight all the way back to the Othan homeworld and beyond. I will see that they will never, ever, have the resources to even think of trying something like this again. For that matter, I’d be just as happy to eliminate the lot of them, and have a fresh colonization begin of their world. If the crew has a problem with it, we can see that they are assigned to another command.” She wanted blood, no less than that. And there would be plenty for the taking by her reckoning. Laehval looked sharply at t’Vatrix. “Na io would disagree with your decision to eliminate the Othan, Rekkhai. However, we still have an obligation to ch’Rihan to aid our allies and help free the world from their control. I do hope that au intend to see that through before au give in to your need for vengeance.” L’haiy slammed her icepack down angrily on the desk. “MY OBLIGATION!? To ch’Rihan? I swore to serve, and I have. I did my duty and more for decades! And when I finally, finally decide to take my accumulated leave that I had accrued, well over 5 years worth of time unused, and finally decided to retire and raise our child, I was told that I was ‘obligated’ to go on this veruulish mission of the Fvillah’s. And if I didn’t, they’d ruin Var’lon and myself, throw us into prison and give our son to medical for experimentation under the excuse of ‘nanogenes!” She watched their expressions, knowing that she had never told anyone the lengths to which others had gone to force her to go on this mission. “They wanted to separate my bondmate and myself to distract him, they sullied his good name. I’ve given ch’Rihan all I have had, twice now and more. I owe it nothing else. I have nothing else, they’ve taken everything from me. Obligated au say? I say to Ayrienne with that!!” Laehval’s brows drew together as she frowned, falling silent for a moment in the wake of the Khre’Riov’s tirade. When she finally spoke, her voice was the calm to t’Vatrix’s storm. “Ie, and they do na deserve your jol for their treachery, but this is na only about au. It is na just about your feelings, your family, or finding the peace au deserve. It is about all of us. We were betrayed. Our families have been put in danger, have been harmed, captured, or slain. All of us. This crew, this loyal crew that has followed au faithfully for so long, deserves their vengeance as well. Au may feel that au have na obligation to ch’Rihan, but, as a Galae officer, au are still sworn to protect her people -- the innocents that still need our help. We need to finish what we have started. Our plan, our mission, can na be compromised by io person’s thirst for revenge.” L’haiy opened her mouth, prepared to continue her angry diatribe, but was interrupted. Destorie cleared his throat, taking a risk. “If I might?” He did not wait for a response. “I will not presume to tell the Khre’Riov how she should feel in this moment. I cannot imagine how au are holding it together, but there is some merit to what Laehval has said. Many of the crew do na even know what has become of their families and if the information I was given just before we transported au back to the Talon is true… many of them may never see their families again.” “What information would that be?” Narrowing her eyes a bit at him, L’haiy tried tried to get her anger under control. Looking away, Destorie’s voice turned suddenly grave. “I received a message that some of the sites that many of the Galae sympathizers had been located to -- including families of the Talon crew -- have been hit by the biological attacks.” Laehval sucked in a breath. “The Daise’Maenak has been working on a counteragent for the biological weapon that struck the capital. We should have the proper equipment on the Talon to synthesize it in greater quantities.” She looked to the Khre’Riov, hoping the news would make her understand why they could not yet leave. t’Vatrix stared down at her desk for what seemed an eternity, considering their options. “Vriha menkha,” she said finally. “I’ll do what I can to help free our world,” turning to look at Laehval, “but I will na have my methods questioned, na matter how personal au think it may become.” She pulled the wicked looking blade from its sheath and lay it before her on the desk. “There are a few names that are destined to become intimate with this blade, and I will na tolerate interference.” Her eyes burned with hatred for those that had wronged her. Oh, yes, they would pay. Laehval glanced from the blade to the Khre’Riov’s glaring gaze and nodded slowly. “Ssuaj-ha.” “I will go inform the Daise’Maenak of this news.” Laehval rose from her chair. t’Vatrix was far too emotional to have the conversation that the two of them needed to have, so she thought it best to remove herself for a short time. “We also need to debrief the entire command crew. They deserve to know what action we will next take so that all departments are prepared.” Destorie tipped his chin thoughtfully at the suggestion. “Ie,” he said, “t’Vatrix and I still have much we must discuss.” “Ie, I have a few things that I need to ask you, as well, and require any information au may have regarding certain... events...,” t’Vatrix slowly added. She trailed off, unable to continue. While Laehval did not like the thought of leaving them alone to discuss things without her (or about her), she had little choice in the matter. “Au will need to order the dheno to stand down so that I can collect everyone.” She fixed Destorie in a flat stare, irritated that she had to make even that small acknowledgement of his authority. “Ie,” he said running his hand over his t’liss. “N’Dak to Khaelir. The new arrivals may be trusted. D’heno can stand down, but escort them until they have changed uniforms. We do na wish for anyio to confuse them for intruders, ie?” “I would na mind a fresh uniform as well, but that can be taken care of after we have had our discussion, Destorie,” L’haiy said with a heavy sigh as she looked at herself. “Then again, I’m half expecting I’ll look like this more often than na in our near future.” “I will see to that as well, Rekkhai.” Laehval nodded her farewell and turned toward N’Dak. “Enarrain.” It hurt to say it, but she respected the rank, even if she was irritated with the man. With a final nod to him, she took her leave. Destorie nodded to Laehval, but it was something that t’Vatrix had said that had his attention -- he had never recalled her using his first name.
  2. RES Talon Mission Briefing 51509.10 - Season 20 The crew has been hiding out (once again) at the vacation home of Temarr, having kidnapped Laehval's mother to gain access to the Tal Shiar's network in search of t'Vatrix. While there, a ship arrives unexpectedly, and three people cautiously approach. As they break free of the treeline and top the rise a few meters from the house, the crew recognizes Koga and the Enarrain with a mysterious stranger.
  3. RES Talon Mission Briefing 51505.21 - Season 20 Following their capture, the crew of the Talon has been imprisoned in the old cells below the Pril'in Government Center. With a bit of luck, they took advantage of the deteriorating walls and managed to tunnel to freedom. Lerak has just deactivated all of the forcefields to the cell entrances, setting both the crew and every other prisoner free. Now, all the crew has to do is escape through the maze of rooms and corridors of the sprawling multi-level center without being caught or killed by the Tal Shiar, all with the added burden of aiding their fellow prisoners, some of whom are seriously injured.
  4. It was hardly the family reunion that Laehval had expected. Of course, she had not expected one at all. So perhaps it was more accurate to say that it was not the family reunion that she would have wished for, if she were prone to such silly things as wishes and hopes and dreams. She did not dwell in a fantasy world of her own making. Laehval was a Rihan woman of facts and figures, of duty and logic. She was known for her temper that mirrored the destructive flames of the sacred Fire Element that she held most dear. She was known for her passion and ingenuity for all things engineering. But she was not known for her sentimentality. Love, consideration, and emotional vulnerability were not her strong suits. If anything, they were the bane of her existence and a reminder of the weak, insecure woman that she'd once been. She'd driven a dagger through that woman's stomach to obliterate her completely, but the experience did not kill her. Rather, it made her stronger than she'd ever been. She had risen like a phoenix from the ashes of her wretched life and had not squandered the second chance at life that the Elements had bestowed upon her. That strength had sustained her as she'd led the Talon through necessary danger, as she'd sought to make her crew whole once again, and as she'd striven to craft herself into something better than she'd once been. She'd put the past behind her, done her best to forget the mother that despised her and the apathetic father that hadn't the fortitude to break free of his wife's tragic nature. Laehval was far from perfect, and still had not mastered the violent emotions that were prone to spill over in times of strife, but she'd become a constant, infallible anchor for those that needed her support. And yet, with the murmur of a single name, her pillar of strength threatened to crumble. "He said his name is Trilus. He is your father?" Laehval's heart soared in the same instant that her stomach sank. "Yes. Can you tell me if he is well? Does he have injuries? Does he need medical attention?" The man nodded and paced to the other side of the cell to speak with the captives in the cell beside him. From her vantage, Laehval couldn't see into her father's cell. She inched as close as she dared to the buzzing forcefield that held her prisoner, but her father was several cells away and unreachable. Impatiently, she waited for the man to return with news, doing all she could to keep her temper in check. Screaming would do nothing for her here and would only draw the kind of attention she wished to avoid. Better to remain silent in hopes that the guards wouldn't show any interest. Her mother had been the catalyst for her imprisonment. Au'rial t'Temarr had given her life and little else. Laehval owed her mother nothing. She had not been surprised when her mother eagerly turned her over to the Tal Shiar as a traitor to their people. But having her father imprisoned? Laehval had not even dreamed such a thing could happen! Her father was a well respected magistrate of their small mountain village. So how did he come to be imprisoned within the Tal Shiar cells? It had to be her mother's doing. "He is gravely injured, but alive. They interrogated and tortured him severely. He is fading in and out of consciousness, but he knows that you are here. " "Are you certain it is him? If he is awake, ask him when I made him happiest." Another wait began as the man moved back to relay the message. She hoped it wouldn't become garbled in the telling. When he returned, he looked uncertain, rubbing at the back of his neck with one hand. "Ah, I'm not sure if they told me this right, but he said 'I have always been proud of you, but I cherish most the memory of the time you reprogrammed your mother's replicator to only accept commands spoken in a robotic voice.'" Laehval slid down the back wall of her cell as the air left her and the sinking feeling settled in the pit of her stomach. She pressed her fingers against her forehead. "Did I say something wrong?" She shook her head. "No, he is my father. There can be no doubt. Tell him that he will not be captive for much longer. Tell him to stay strong. Tell him that I will see him soon and we will be leaving this forsaken place soon." The man blinked at her. "Are you telling him that to make him feel better? Or because you believe it to be true?" Laehval lifted her steely gaze. "Both. Please... tell him." As he slipped off again to the other side of his cell, Laehval glanced to cell next to hers and her fellow crew trapped within. She wasn't sure if any of them had discovered a way to escape Tal Shiar custody, but she did not doubt their ingenuity. Her crew was nothing if not determined. She only hoped that what she told her father hadn't been a lie. "Elements protect him," she murmured under her breath. Laehval wasn't prone to losing herself to hopes and dreams, but she couldn't help but fantasize about the day that she could repay her mother for the misery that she'd caused. If her father died of his injuries, Laehval's retribution would be swift and absolute. And nothing, save death itself, would keep her from plunging a dagger straight into the heart of Au'rial t'Temarr.
  5. RES TALON MISSION BRIEFING 051504.09 - Season 20 - The Away Team has just returned from a recon mission at a nearby village with little news and unwelcome guests. Tal Shiar agents tracked their progress and have now put them under siege in the vacation home of House Temarr. As a firefight would lead to certain death, t'Mahren has concocted a scheme that might save the lives of the Talon's command crew. Posing as a loyal agent of the Tal Shiar, she has 'captured' the crew and will hand them over for interrogation. With a bit of luck, there might be a chance for them to escape Tal Shiar custody before it is decided that they have outlived their usefulness.

Thus far, none of the crew have been injured by Tal Shiar hands. They are now being moved to transport ships, presumably to be taken back to one of the Tal Shiar's many secret facilities.

Tal Shiar agents tracked their progress and have now put them under siege in the vacation home of House Temarr.

While remaining with the shuttle to offer flight support to the others should they need it, t'Aehjae has been discovered by a pair of nosy children, one of which has fled to tell the nearest Tal Shiar officer of the hidden Galae RAC. The others of the Talon's command crew have remained behind within the (relative) safety of t'Temarr's family vacation home and are ever watchful for hints of Tal Shiar activity in the area.

Lerak trPexil -> @ Two bars? Him. What is that in credits? KhreRiovtRex -> Alright, once they find out what they can we need to spread to this next province. I know there was a small Galae remote training site here. We might find some more of our ranks that still hold with us. It may be the best chance we have Laehval tTemarr -> @ Shop girl> Ah, let me do the conversion. ::She checked her ISD and then offered it to Lerak.

KhreRiovtRex -> Koga, if we had to drop au into that terrain, would au be able to traverse it and reach some of our operatives that we last knew were there? Laehval tTemarr -> @ Shop girl> Excellent. Let me wrap it up for you. ::Beaming at Lerak, she took the plant and wrapped it so it wouldn't leak before handing it to him.:: Ah, well, au should probably try the market. That's usually the best place to catch up on news... Koga S'Bien -> ::Looks at the map again:: I should be able to, ie.

Once we hear back from the other team, we'll try to insert Koga into this location. Laehval tTemarr -> ACTION> Somewhere, on a Tal Shiar station, Pexil's unaltered thumbprint and credit transaction just pinged a search program looking for rogue Galae crew members.

  14. RES TALON MISSION BRIEFING 051503.19 - Season 20 - Now in disguise, members of the Talon command crew are currently exporing the nearest village in hopes of finding some hint of Galae rebels that might be in the area. Unfortunately, one of their number has unknowingly given away the location of the team. Not only did tr'Pexil draw on credits from his own personal account and provide his thumb print for the transaction, he also let himself be holographed -- and all because a pretty face caught his attention. While the Tal Shiar might not take immediate action over the sign of a lone Galae crewmember, they most assuredly have taken notice.
  15. RES TALON MISSION BRIEFING 051503.05 - Season 20 - After conferring with their new allies and a discussion over who might be suited to what region, it has been decided that members of Talon will begin reconnaissance in areas where they will not be recognized. It is their hope that they might locate and identify other pockets of Galae members that rebel against those intent on destroying them. Lerak and Koga have assembled clothing that can be used to disguise the crew so they will not be identified as Galae. Crew members will work in teams to double their chances of success, with other more recognizable members remaining behind to provide them with recon support.
