Embassy of the Lux Dynasty

Post by Vanessa Lux » Sat Jul 18, 2015 2:40 am

The delegation chambers and sanctuary of amnesty of the Lux Dynasty. The front doors lead to a lobby, with a front desk and many chairs and tables to sit back and relax. The tapestries were white with purple trim and a golden cross was elegantly embroidered in the middle. There were large windows to catch the sunlight and so people could look out on either side to the sunrise or sunset. The doors on either side of the front desk lead to conference rooms, and one large delegation chamber. There was also a second level which was a as large as a small house for Harpy Lux and Jester during off hours. There were full amenities, a kitchen, two master bedrooms, one for each sister. a guest bedroom, a roomy living space. two master bathrooms with a jacuzzi and a shower for two in both set ups, and a balcony with french doors leading out from the master bedrooms with a connecting deck to both. It was all on one level, and a secured elevator with four heavily armed and armored temple guards guarding it at all times.

Harpy and Jester made it to the Embassy unscathed. Once their ship landed in the hanger they were escorted by their guards to the spacious quarters located right above the delegation rooms. Jester's eyes widened when she saw the flat. The walls were painted a light baby blue, and the floors in the kitchen were light hardwood. The living room was a comfortable cream colored carpet. The kitchen was black white speckled marble counter tops. with a polished stainless steel sink. There was a stovetop island in the center of the kitchen, and counter space surrounded the island. The cabinets were stainless steel and textured. The master bedrooms were both the same, the tapestries and bedding were all in protectorate colors of white, purple and gold. The floors were carpeted white, and the walls were painted with the same white, and slightly textured. The bathrooms were hexagonally tiled grey floors with grey marble countertops and polished steel faucets. Both showers had the same set up of marble and nozzle fixtures. The Jaccuzzi tubs were both white, and could fit at least four. Anguish spared no expense with this place, but it never saw use.

"Wow! Oh Wow! Wow! WOW! This is UHHMAZING!" Jester bounced around and explored every knook and cranny she could come across, in her room all her belongings were set up nice and pretty. Also her favorite hatchet was in a display case on the wall. Harpy's room was more personable to her despite the same coloration of all the textiles and objects. She had more veils over her bed, just as she liked it. Her wardrobe was all neatly placed in the closet, and her room had multiple candelabras and incense burners. She nodded, completely satisfied with the change. It was her own place, and now she could live a life apart from the shadow of Vanessa and do some good. Hopefully she could help Jester develop quicker in the mind. She paid no thoughts as she flopped onto her bed, feeling the softness of the mattress and sinking into it with a smile.

"It's a good day," She mused and closed her eyes.

*Some time after Harpy sent the message to Gavin's apartment, a message was sent from him.*

::Glad to hear that you two are doing well and have gotten the important tasks you were speaking of. Might have to make a visit some time. However, currently, I'm spending some time out on the endless dunes of Tatooine. Good thing I got a datapad and linked it to the apartment. Don't know when I would have made it back otherwise. I hope all goes well with your new positions.::

Harpy saw the message and chuckled, she contemplated sending one back. She had no idea why Gavin took an interest in her, or why she reminded him of his late wife. But she had no interest in him romantically. She did not want to break his heart, he'd have better luck with Jester, as simple as she was. However she wouldn't dare part with her beloved sister. So one could argue he'd be getting two women, if he did decide to pursue Harpy. She was rather repulsed by the idea of Gavin, far more than Vanessa was of Jason. She simply wasn't attracted to Gavin at all, and found his friendliness amusing rather than endearing.

::Tatooine? Sounds hum drum, hot, dry, and coarse. I'd need a dip in a pool, and a long soak in a bath afterwards to rehydrate my skin. I'm glad the climate control of this penthouse was set to the climate of Manaan. Otherwise I think I'd be too dry and stifled. Well, if you get around to finishing whatever it is you're doing, I'm sure Jester would be happy to see you too. I think she misses you.::

When Harpy went down to the main floor where the delegations and meetings were taking place, Jester decided to have some fun sending a message to Gavin. She hit the button and spoke.

::HI Gavin! Umm...this is Jester, I'm older now, and I just wanted to say, that I think Harpy doesn't know how to talk to boys! I think she needs a warm up and a visit. She likes you as a friend, but I think she could use a kick in the pants! She's really upset that big sister has been married, I don't know why but I stick around to support her! I think we'd both could do with a visit from you! I'd like to see you, and I know Harpy would like it too! Sorry that Harpy was so rude...oh her real name is...Samantha don't tell her I said that, I'll get in trouble! I remember when you held Sally! I really liked that, and...I...um...ithinkyourcutebye!::

She hung up quickly and squealed, running around the penthouse giggling and her cheeks heated with flaring embarrassment.

*It had been some time since the messages had come from Harpy and Jester. A couple months at least. Finally a response came from Gavin. It was short and to the point.*

::At your earliest convenience, I'd like to schedule and appointment.::

-Gavin


*He said nothing of it in the message, but while request that he should come around some time was extended, his request for an appointment suggested at a more professional visit.*

::Formal meeting? Did I leave that bad of an impression Gavin? Why the formailities?::

Harpy thought long and hard over the response, she felt like somehow she insulted the man. It was not her intention, she rather enjoyed his company as a friend. Though she did not know at the current moment she was interested in men that way. Her sister broke out of that, but she wasn't sure if she was ready to, or able.

*The response came quicker than before, suggesting his mind was focused on other things at the moment.*

::Two reasons. One, you hold an important position that dictates a particular schedule to ensure people are met with in a timely manner while managing the time to meet with others. Surely your new job doesn't leave without much to do. Second, I have been busy the past few months and need updating on how things stand.::

::I wanted to apologize for anything I said earlier, I am not...used to men being friendly towards me. I would like to get to know you as a friend. As for updates, I would need to know what sort of updates you would like. You can make it as formal or informal as you want. We have office hours from eight in the morning to six in the evening. Then if you wanted to, you could just drop by the penthouse above the business office. I saw Jester sent you a message on my behalf, I think we do need to talk...::

*She responded back just as quickly.*

::Understood. I should be there in a couple days.::

*Gavin made his way down the halls until he finally reached his destination. Taking a deep breath, he knocked and waited entrance. He wore the dark grey trench coat, trimmed in dark blue and gold over his grey and blue trimmed vest. Around his neck rested his emerald gem necklace and hair slicked back.*

The doors opened leading into a front office where a zeltron secretary was hard at work. She looked up from her desk and ushered him over with a happy smile. "Master Gavin, Princess Lux is waiting eagerly for your arrival. She's in her office, just off to the left. It's the big one with the glass walls at the back. She's all ready to see you, I hope you enjoy your visit to our embassy. May the Benevolent Mother be with You."

Two guards, obviously protectorate, but in security uniforms instead of their iconic power armor stepped forth to escort him back to the princess. They stood at seven feet tall, and at ease waiting for Gavin to follow them back.

"That won't be necessary gentlemen, Princesss Samantha has requested an audience alone. Her office is not that hard to spot either, he' won't miss it," The zeltron woman stated.

The security guards nodded and went back to their posts, wherever they were within the embassy.

*Gavin entered the front office and nodded to the secretary as she acknowledged him and told him he was expected. What surprised him was she seemed to be eagerly awaiting him. From one side of the field to the other did Harpy seem to move. It only made him more on guard as to what to think. Still, he progressed on in the direction he was told to go.

When the guards stepped forward to escort him, he looked up to them, barely even a curious look in his eyes. His eyes still held their piercing stare and seemed to be strengthened from before. His strength, his focus, even his confidence in what he had obtained had increased and was reflected in his eyes and his face. The real question would have been who intimidated who. He surely wasn't and being soldiers of the Protectorate, he doubted they were either. Still, an amusing thought nonetheless.

His head dropped to eye level as they cast themselves to the side, as if trying to look back at the secretary, wondering if he had heard her right. Alone? Sure he might have been a friend, but he figured protocol would have been followed, considering he was probably more of a threat than any who walked through those doors. Still as the guards eased of, he moved passed them towards Harpy's office, his trench coat flowing behind him. When he entered, his face still held the same look they did against the guards, piercing, strong, and certain, completely different than the gaze she would have seen on Manaan. Yet, he said nothing, waiting for her to "welcome" him in to begin whatever talks they would end up having.*

Harpy looked up and smiled to him, rising out of her seat she walked over and opened the door for him,

"Gavin! It's good to see you, but why the formalities? I figured you'd just shimmer up to my penthouse, this is a bit...formal isn't it? Or were you looking to make the alliance between the Shadows and the Protectorate official? Anyway,"

With a switch of a remote the glass panels of her office became tinted on the outside and looked like a large beach front on the inside of the office. No one could see in , or listen in now. She sat down on a couch where there was a tray for coffee and tea. She swept her spider silk dress back as she sat down with her legs across the seat.

"I mostly wanted to apologize, I am sorry if I seemed...insensitive...I know you believe I remind you of your lost wife, and I admit I was a bit...unsettled by that. I believe I reacted poorly and kept you at a distance...for various reasons. I don't think you deserved that, I am sorry Gavin.

*Gavin entered as Harpy opened the door and walked inside. He eyes merely watched, moving around slowly as the glass became tinted. With each moment, his mind became more guarded, though it didn't show. He simply listened as she spoke and made her way to the couch as she laid across it. He watched her for only a moment before taking seat on a chair next to the couch. He leaned forward as his clasped together as he went through her words.*

"Its not so simple to just shimmer here. To go somewhere, anyone who shimmers must have been there first. For more skilled users, they can focus in on a being's presence and shimmer that way. And no, despite Jester's Force sensitivity, it is not a presence I've become that familiar with to use. Also, I've done enough jumping from planet to planet for a while. It has been years since I've flown, so that's what I did. As for the alliance, that is a more complicated matter, one that doesn't hold any importance now."

*He closed his eyes as she went one about what he saw from her and her expression of it. When he opened them, he let his head fall slightly to the side as he looked at the floor.* "Odd that you feel you remind me of my wife considering I never said you did. All I did in that moment was simply apologize for staring and moved on from the thought."

Harpy's eyes lowered a bit in shame, now she was in an awkward situation, she figured it would be best to just come clean, "Sorry, I did a bit of digging...I shouldn't have been so nosey. Your gaze actually was a bit of an odd one for me when I thought about it. I should have asked. Though, anyway, I hope you found what you were looking for in your travels. Things in the galaxy are a bit...unstable, moreso than I thought. The Jedi are reclusive, and the senate is inactive. Many systems want to join us...the clone wars were started for less it seems. Not to mention space piracy is through the roof in the inner rim of the universe. Umbara was attacked recently, and they wanted our help. My hands have been busy between politics and raising Jester. Her mind seems to be developing better, which is a blessing and a boon."

She chuckled and smiled at him.

*As she spoke, he let his eyes shift a bit towards her, taking in what she had said. His marriage wasn't widely known, yet wasn't really a secret. The Grey would easily know, the Guardians, well, Tyra anyway. When she finished speaking and smiled to him, his gaze returned to the floor with only a slight nod.*

"I see. Yes, in that moment, I thought I saw my wife in you. However, there's more to it than simply saying you remind me of her." *He took a deep breath before standing to his feet and walking over to the tinted window. It didn't bother him if he couldn't see through it, he wasn't even trying to. He closed his eyes as he continued.* "On Naza, there is an old tradition. When a man expressed interest in one of the women, the father would have them swim to the bottom of the Great Ocean to retrieve a Gem of Binding, or Traditional Pearl. It's a couple miles down, meaning the pressure as well as air reserves are problems. Doing this proves the man can take care of the woman. Since there's more and more newcomers to Naza, that tradition is no longer done. I was asked to do this, and so I did. With my skill in the Force, I retrieved it and returned it to my father-in-law. Three days later, we were married." *He then turned back to Harpy.* "This gem is more than proof of strength; it is used in the wedding. During the ceremony, the gem breaks and the energy inside binds the two, merging their spirits. When one dies, instead of passing into the Force, they become apart of the other. I was twenty at the time. She died five years later. For decades she's lived in me. I loved a couple times before, only to lose them as well. Since the last, I've kept myself pretty much closed off. That day, what I saw was my wife using you to take form for a moment. The full intentions of what she did is unknown, but I know she wants me to move on and try to love again."

*He didn't press anything more on the subject, the point of that brief moment expressed. When she spoke of his travels, he laughed faintly.*
"My travels were for nothing more than training:Tatooine, Mustafar, Hoth, Dagobah, then back to the Naza system. So hopefully I gained something from it." *He knew what he had gained, but only few knew of what he could become before, that truth most likely out of knowledge. Either way, his transformations still had to be sorted and he didn't care to go into those details until needed.* "What all has been happening that you know of? Umbara was attacked, but any ideas on who or why? Anything on the Machines or Kothryn and what else is happening involving the Protectorate? I know this information may be better gained from Vanessa or Anguish, but trying to see them is a bit more difficult. Not to mention you and Jester wished to see me anyway."

Harpy listened carefully to his sorrowful words. She could feel her heart going out to him. She never knew what true loss was, but the idea of her sisters dying frightened her. She continued to listen with heartfelt interest. She started to understand the man, and realize why he looked at her the way he did. She felt worse at how quickly she jumped to her basest defense.

"Oh the pirates? The reports state it was an old calamarian warship...something close to 700 meters, and the men rode giant tigers into battle. They were armed with swords, polearm weapons and lightsabers...and answered to a Kyuzo...but they came down, slaughtered two entire companies of umbaran warriors, looted them and left."

*Gavin made his way back to the chair as Harpy went on about the pirates. Sitting down, he leaned back into it, arms resting a bit on the arm rests while his hands clasped over his chest and propped his right foot up and his left knee. The piercing stare, the hard and focused features seemed to lessen a bit, turning to a typical casual look. Though she felt the words were sorrowful and felt for him and what the full story behind her and her death could bring, he seemed fine and not bothered by it.*

"I see. Using lightsabers would typically suggest Force-sensitives, though not always. Giant tigers, however, is something new. That would definitely create news by itself. But still saddening for those who lost loved ones during the assault." *He couldn't help but smirk a little, not at what happened, but the idea that he used to ride a mount of his own decades ago.* "Any movement from the Kothryn or Machine Empire lately?" *He chose to leave out his encounter for the moment.* "What is going on with the Protectorate since the battle and...changes?"

*Since before the battle, what little he knew of the Protectorate had started changing. From Harpy and Jester coming here and making a more revealed image, Medrike making herself known as well as her involvement with Kurayami, as well as Vanessa's marriage. He turned his head to her a bit with a slight tilt.*


"Also, I've detected the faint movement of a couple presences that are unfamiliar to me. There is darkness about them, but as slight as they are, the more attuned such as myself, Kurayami, and the like have probably felt them, though I'd suspect they'd be seen as insignificant. However, there is one who can do more than just feel the movements. A skilled user of farseeing, no doubt. Its more than a presence when he's looking, more like you feel like you're being watched. Something to keep an eye out for."

Harpy shook her head, "No changes, no movements, Kothryn and Machines are pretty quiet. There is a territorial dispute on Geonosis. Two contingents of protectorate troops have been called in to quell a massive geonosian assault against Ironclad. That should be resolved soon. Jason Dorn went there at once, Vanessa is with child apparently, I got the message not too long ago. This dark presence though...you said it has the ability to not only far see, but seemingly project itself into a room like its there? That's...I've never heard of a sith who could do such a thing...is it concerning?"

*Gavin nodded.* "I see. I hope all goes well for them." *As she asked more about the Sith who could farsee, he looked to the floor.* "I wouldn't say projecting itself, at least to the degree it actually feels like its there. It's a simple sensation to those who can feel it. However, I wouldn't put it passed this being to be capable of such things. But you must be aware, there are many ways that a power Force-sensitive can seem to project itself over great distances. So many abilities." *He looked back to her, the very faintest of smirks appearing on his face before fading.* "At the moment, no, I don't think its anything to be concerned over. Just keep an open mind should someone speak of moving Sith."

*He leaned forward, his voice dropping almost to a whisper.*"I have encountered a single Kothryn on the sand of Tatooine. I killed it and sent it off in hopes it can be studied. Any information I've gathered has been passed on and hopefully will find Raul soon."

"So far you are the only one speaking of Sith, which means they must be keeping exceptionally quiet. I have not heard anything beyond Umbara in terms of violent acts. We'll probably send a team out there now, but judging by the description of the ship, we're looking for a black painted scythe class battlecruiser with a red checkered pattern front to it. We got another report that the ship was last seen resupplying on Dantooine, it has since left the system for parts unknown. There's no real record of a Kyuzo anywhere."

She quirked a curious eyebrow, "Kothryn on Tatooine? An odd place, I'm surprised you weren't swarmed by thousands...that's a bit unsettling. Fully formed Kothryn on Tatooine, but not attacking any of the known cities or settlements?"
Vanessa Lux: "I want freedom, the freedom to take what I want, and give as much as I want. That's what true freedom is."

Samantha 'Harpy' Lux: "You'll love what I'll let you do to me, until it's my turn."

"Not that I am aware of. Further more, this was a Kothryn that arrived there. It looked to be one born and raised within Tatooine's terrain. With that idea alone means they originate from multiple planets."

*Gavin thought on this Kyuzo a bit, wondering if perhaps he was a Sith, the one he felt moving around. The possibility was good, but without further proof, it'd remain just a thought.* "As for the Sith, all we can do now is remain alert. Without any large scale movement, tracking them down will be difficult."

*He leaned back in the chair, letting his head rest against the back as he looked to the ceiling. The galaxy had been quiet for quite some time until now. Kothryn, the Machine Empire, The Sith, and the rebellion on Geonosis. The later were not really in his scope of concern. The rebellion was a typical thing and was only meant to be quelled by those involved. The Sith had always been around and unless they came out with some plan of extreme measures, he'd take no fight to them. Still, the growing threats revealed to him something: he was tired. He had lived his life up until this point fighting and doing what he could to protect others, and near the last bit of his life, became the darkness that threatened them. After that, he disappeared into exile, running from that truth, keeping himself and his power out of the sight of others.

Now he had been drawn back in and sought greater power to fight, clearing his mind in the progress thankfully. The training had even kept his mind focused on his goal. But here and now, thinking on the threats slowly growing, knowing that everything had suddenly gone quiet for a moment showed how tired he had grown of it all. Unfortunately, he had already chosen his path and he couldn't waver now. Closing his eyes, he took a slow deep breath before letting it out just as slowly.*

"What's the point of origin of the Kothryn? Could we just nuke their hive mind and be done with it? Seems like if we can find the source of their control, we can just get rid of them, Harpy shrugged, but scooted closer to Gavin on the semicircle couch. She was interested in his words as he spoke. She found him to be quite an intelligent man. It made her curious to hear what he had to say.

*Gavin opened his eyes, but didn't lift his head, only shook it.* "I don't think it'll be that simple. I...encountered a large gathering of Kothryn on Felucia without an attack. There, I spoke with the sarlacc in the Ancient Abyss. It called them its children, an extension of itself. However, while they revere it, they're beyond its control. Destroying the sarlacc won't kill them, only make them more deadly than they are. It would invite them to step out and enter new systems far more frequently." *He closed his eyes and gave a sigh, knowing that it was probably more complex than a single origin or means of destruction.* "Also, I don't think they originate from a single world, not anymore. If destroying the sarlacc is capable of ridding them from the galaxy, you'd have to locate every single sarlacc in the galaxy from existence."

"So...would we be dealing with a sort of vong invasion if we blew up their gods? If the sarlaccs are the only things keeping them in line, we have no choice but to leave them be don't we? That's not good, it's like the vong but a thousand times worse. Well, at least the worst event in the galaxy is a battle on geonosis right now. Protectorate forces should arrive there in forty eight hours or so I take it."

She shrugged but leaned her head against her hand on the back of the couch, and focusing on Gavin.

*He gave a slight nod.* "The most we can do for now is leave them be. We have too much in the mix at the moment to cause a sudden flare." *He thought back a moment to the encounter and the words that were spoken.* "It is hard to predict what they'll do, but they know I know of the suggested origins and may keep it low key for now as to not get bombed. However, we have to stay back as much so not to incite such anger. For now though, I think they'll stay out of sight."

~At least until the fighting really gets going. Then they'll jump in and take out any on the battlefield. Or that's the impression I have.~ *His mind carried on this trail of thought, but left it unspoken. He didn't know that for a fact and didn't want to cause any possible panic. For now, the idea of their origins had been revealed, but at the same time, restraint was set as well. Unless the Kothryn attacked large scale, he'd stay quiet.

He looked out of the corner of his eye and noticed her focus. It certainly seemed a reverse of that day on Manaan. He had paid her quite a bit of attention then and made her uncomfortable. Now she seemed to be holding that focus, though without making anyone uncomfortable. Still it made him curious. Was she simply just focusing on him due to what he was saying about the threats and what could affect the Protectorate? Or was she actually focusing on him.

He let his eyes look forward again, already taking notice of the fact she had moved a little closer.
"Has something caught your attention?" *He seemed to lack any real charm or how to really flow with his words in the situation. The years focused in training and battle, the years in isolation had seemed to make him straight forward about everything, no doubt having little to any tact.*

She flushed and scooted back a bit, realizing she was closer than what would be called friend space. She seemed to have migrated over the course of the conversation without realizing it. She had become so engrossed in the conversation and Gavin she didn't notice that bit by bit she was scooting closer. There was maybe about three feet between her and Gavin when she became aware.

"I umm...was I staring this time?" SHe facepalmed herself moments after, realizing how stupid the statement was. She was at a loss for words, she found the conversation intriguing, and instead she asked if she was staring. The conversation had gone from professional to the semblance of a first awkward moment in a first date.

*Gavin watched as she scooted over and face palmed herself after her statement. It was a bit funny, though she probably didn't feel the same way. A small smile did creep to his face as he shook his head.* "It's fine. It doesn't bother me."

*He came to realize though that everything involved in professional discussions had been covered. He had gotten the updates that he desired and even passed along some information on what he knew. The only other thing was the state of the alliance between the Shadows and Protectorate, but as he had said, it was a complex matter that held no importance at the moment. Until he sorted out the future of the Shadows, there was nothing there to discuss.

He was there only a moment before a question did come to mind. It was a personal one but did bring about a bit of curiosity.*
"So tell me, why Harpy? It isn't your real name so what made you chose it?"

"Samantha Tari'ala is my real name...how I got Harpy Lux is simple and complex. Vanessa, Jester and I were in the same orphanage, but it was a dastardly place. The we found out that when certain boys and girls came of age before they were adopted, they weren't actually given proper accomodations, they were sold. Vanessa was eighteen, and pretty. She and I were dating by then, and Jester was three years old. Vanessa wanted to run away, we decided to take Jester as well. However things went wrong in the escape, we killed the warden...we pushed him down the stairs and his neck snapped. There had been a bounty on us after that. So we changed our names and became outlaws. We got a ship and left Bastion."

Harpy sighed, "I'm...close to Vanessa or was, you can imagine I am hurt by her new husband, and the news of her pregnancy. I am sorry I was so defensive Gavin. You deserve to be respected, it was wrong of me to react the way I did initially, or keep you at a distance. Can you forgive me?"
Vanessa Lux: "I want freedom, the freedom to take what I want, and give as much as I want. That's what true freedom is."

Samantha 'Harpy' Lux: "You'll love what I'll let you do to me, until it's my turn."
