Courtyards and Plaza

Post by Arik Cerof » Thu Dec 16, 2010 12:32 pm

The lavishly built Senate Building included a series of courtyards and plazas outside and around the facility. The plazas by regulation encompassed a perimeter up to 100 meters around the building so as to make the approaching of any military or terroristic forces from the ground an impossibility without notice.

The plaza and squares had large concrete statues and flower beds designed to look aesthetically pleasing while also offer obstacles for any type of intruder and invaders, cutting down on places to hide with thinner trees and shrubs as opposed to thicker ones, and the designs to them made hiding difficult as well.

Thermal, movement, heat, IR and other scanners all picked up any traffic along them as any tried to approach. Tabs were kept on all approachers in many forms in order to maintain the strictest security measures.

*The Landspeeder carrying the Hapan touched down just outside the perimeter. Pulling a hood up over his face and around himself, Arik stepped off the cab and began to walk calmly towards the Senate building. He could easily ask to see the Hapan delegation, his name and status was known to them and it could be useful in gaining access to the chambers if he somehow could manage as such.

Keeping all of his weapons hidden, Arik opened a comm device and asked to speak to the Hapan delegation and asked the Mad'ams to meet him at the southeast entrance of the Senate Building.*

a precession neared the plaza as the casket of senator schwarz is brought to the convocation chamber, the pilot steps away, glad to be away and strolls to arik, thinking him just to be a hapan

"i hate jedi... you know... well not all of them just the ones that think they are going to treat a medical capsule like a bobsled. i mean this jedi is supposed to be giving the eulogy, when before you know it the sensor reads that we have 3 fewer passengers and we are missing our med capsule."

*Arik shrugged dismissively at the remarks from the man.*

Thats rough, They do what they want and don't answer to anyone really. I can see where that would be a major pain.

*He remarked in accented Hapan as he stopped to pay respects to the procession as it passed.*

the pilot shrugged

"good day to you as well... i just hope someone finds him before he dives off the deepend and misses a jump, his robes made him look important like a master, or admiral"

A master or admiral huh? that's odd to find one out here, but they're kriffing crazy i guess.

*Arik settled into a standing pose as he watched the processional. He did not want to show disrespect, especially in these circumstances. He needed to proceed with caution less the sith hiding around here get the drop on him.*

the LaaT/st touches down long enough for Irito to get off, looking to the man he leaves a note saying that he will be back while the ship takes the man to the Senate Healing Centre. once the ship departs irito entered the waited for guards to escort him to where the funeral would be.

*Arik saw the fleetmaster upon the LAAT, and nodded to himself and as another show of respect. It seemed that the proceedings here were underway and he did not want to keep the Hapan delegation waiting at all*

My respects to your Senator, I need to depart and must meet with some friends.

*Arik took his leave and took a course around the funeral procession. He was unsure as to Master Irito's presence here, but it was clear that the Jedi was busy regardless.*

*Carnage kept his cloaked ship back away from the Senate building, using the magnification in his mask to watch the Laat drop the Jedis body off. Carnage could sense a light side presence in the Senate building. It was faint but it was there. Once the Laat had pulled away from the opening to the coart yard, Carnage moved his ship closer, grabbing Sev's robe, and Senator Demici's key card. Programming his cloaked ship to land a kilometer away, Carnage jumped from the ship, ten floors above the courtyard. He landed silently and slowly slid towards the opening to the Courtyard. Reaching the edge, Carnage could not feel the Jedi presence, but he knew one was still in the building. Using the aid of the force, Carnage launched into a forward flip, landing on the senators coffin.

The Senate guards were startled, and took a second to react. Two saber hilts flew to Carnages hands, igniting them instantly. Pushing off the coffin, Carnage launched into a back flip off the coffin, sending the two sabers hurtaling through the air towards the two gurds that were infront of him. Carnage landed behind two guards, driving his claws through their backs, ripping open their lower torso. The two guards dropped to the ground in a pool of their own blood, just as Carnages sabers returned to his hands after decapitating two other guards. Four guards were dead before the other four could draw their weapons. Carnage pounced on the two closest to him. He spun to his left as he moved towards them, his right saber slicing through the ends of their blasters, rendering them useless. Finishing his three hundred and sixty rotation, his left blade sliced the two guards in half at the waist. Carnage turned to face the other two, who by now, had their guns ready and were firing. The first to blaster bolts, Carnage directed into one of the guards with his saber, the second two blaster bolts into the last Guard.

Carnage extinguished his blades, clipping the hilts to his belt as the last guard fell. He turned to leave, stopping half way and walking back to the coffin. Using his right index claw, he cut the shirt from the dead senator, exposing the chest and abdomen. Again using only his index finger claw, Carnage Carved words into the dead mans chest. Speaking each word as he carved.*
Carnage was here. *Finishing his note, Carnage turned and headed into the Senate building, pulling the hood of Sevs robe over his head.

*Still keeping his presence unknown and hidden within the Force, Arik met with the Hapan delegation. He quickly walked with them back towards the main halls of the Senate where he was allowed into the building as their guest and unhindered.*

Phantom rode in on his speederbike painted a matte black. Leaving the keys in the iginition he activated the 4 trick locks so that should anyolne try to steel it, they would literally be blown to bits. Dismounting he cracked his neck and pulled his hood up covering his features and headed in the senate, vivid images of his first visit here flashing in his mind. Dead and dying people, halls lined in blood and the scent of burnt flesh were filling him again

Vapor collected in the middle of the plaza, and formed a solid mass. Iron Hail shook off the condensation and continued walking about the plaza. He looked around at all the senators. Their pockets full of meaningless currency, and egos as big as the stars. They were just on borrowed time, machines lasted forever, and would outlast these pathetic, and weak beings. He made his way to the Lux Dynasty Embassy. He wanted to see who was in charge these days. From what he was able to tune into on the Holonet, it changed hands. It was run by three women, and he heard one of them ran delegation here. He wanted to speak with her, and see what this new Tau Ceti was all about.

There was a shimmer in the south courtyard, and what appeared was a cheetah sized droid, with metal claws and razor sharp spikes along its back. It had a tail blaster and glowing blue eyes. It simply patrolled around the courtyards, and blended in with the crowds. Nightmare had no intention of starting a fight. He simply wanted to observe, and experiment with his far reaching abilities. He figured a perfect test subject would be Samantha Lux. Or maybe a different senator. Aside from his appearance, he looked at most like a droid that had gone off the reservation from a facility. If the authorities were notified he would be well gone by that point. He could sense something within the building, and reached out with the force to find his prey.

Yet he felt cravings for the force, he would need sustenance soon. He could not get that here, not without creating a scene.

There in the heart of the Galatic Senate stood two individuals dressed in Nelvaanian tribal guard. The torrent of people danced around the two outcasts. They were meant with whispers, raised eyebrows, and apathy. Ruz took out a holopad, images of the Senate were projected into the air. The Nelvaanian shifted the screens around. His eyes focused on the data before him.

"So I broke down Nelvaanian's recent population data and crossed referenced it to our resources. I also have potential trade data..." Ruz stopped working and turned towards his boss. Sean froze in place. His eyes staring at the walls of the people around him. "Cheif...?"

Sean shook his head. "Yeah, trade data. Sounds good." He turned back to look at Ruz, Sean had been Nelvaan's leader for the past decade, but right now Sean felt like a child. The pressure of the Senate began to push down on the young leader.

"Cheif..." Ruz turned off the holopad and stared at the blue-haired man. This was new for Ruz, usually, Sean was quite confident in everything that he did. Seeing him off kilter was odd, almost humbling. "You got this."

Sean turned back to his companion and nodded. He adjusted his robes and took Ruz's datapad from his hands. The blue-haired adoptive son of Nelvaanian made his way towards the Lux embassy. He turned back towards Ruz.

“El szabadon”

“Vagy Megpróbál”

And Sean was gone leaving Ruz in the chaos of the plaza.

Ruz sat there waiting, waiting for much longer than the Nelvaanian was comfortable with. Ruz didn't like the increased number of outsiders that surrounded him, and by this point, Ruz started to realize that he was, in fact, the outsider. The Nelvaanian could feel his anxieties grow. He tried to calm himself by breathing. In and out. In and out. In and...

That's when Sean burst out of the offices of the Lux Dynasty, his eyes large and full of the one thing that Ruz always hated...adventure. When Sean got that look Ruz always found himself neck deep in paperwork and covered in bruises. Sean's adventures were never the typical try that new restaurant around the corner, they were more of the fight off the hordes of demons coming at the door. Ruz shivered as he watched the leader of his planet begin to push people out of the way. Ruz jumped to his feet making his way over to the overly enthusiastic man.

"Sean."

Ruz's voice seemed to almost get drowned out by the flood of people.

"Sean!"

The leader of the planet ducked and dived through another crowd of people. Ruz forced his way through trying to keep up with the blue-haired man.

"SEAN!"

Suddenly, Ruz was on the edge of a cliff with Sean staring off into the distance. The rest of the crowd had left them on the precipice. Ruz gulped. He turned back towards Sean, whose eyes were glowing with that same hot fire.

"Sean, please...we have to get back to..."

Sean's smile cut Ruz's words off. The leader of the people heard something calling his name, and right where he was standing he could hear it screaming. Sean chuckled and placed a hand on Ruz's shoulders.

"Give me one day...One day and I will be back on that ship."

"I don't think this is a good id-"

And with Ruz's one last protest Sean jumped off the side of the park. Ruz could hear the gasps of a few locals who peek over to see the blue-haired man diving into the hovercar horde. The scary thing wasn't that the leader of Nelvaan just jumped off a skyscraper, the scary thing is that Ruz had a time limit, and he hated time limits.
