thud

In a back alley close to the main spaceport on Dantooine, a head fell to the rock of the pathway. The torso remained upright a moment, then collapsed to the side with a heavy thunk, blood spurting from the stump of his neck. His heart pumped franticly, trying to restore oxygen to the severed brain, sending wave after wave of crimson to the dusty blond stone of the alley. The fluid splashed and pooled, and the figure took in the sight with an appreciative eye. Of course there were cleaner ways of doing business, but none so thrilling as the visceral contact of cutting.

The man, reeking of watered-down Corellian ale and lum, had thought to draw the figure into the alley under the pretense of a broken-down speeder bike, then rob him blind and leave him for dead in the forgotten corners. The irony of the situation brought a smile to the figure's concealed lips, and a low chuckle bubbled from depths of its cowl. Justice served, another undesireable rid from the galaxy. It was only fitting that the kath hounds would find him before local authorities. A fitting end to a wretched life.

The figure turned to the nearly-forgotten speeder. It was still fully functional... and it would serve his purpose nicely. The flowing lines of the structure, and the way the metal that served as counterbalance to the drive seemed as if it was poured from the smelter and left with the cascading ripples of its rapid cooling. A fitting transport for the agent known as Kraken.

A moment later, with the whine of repulsors, the speeder kicked to the streets of Dantooine. The long white cloak that concealed the form of the agent flapped in the wake of the passing, his body wrapped in similar simple clothes of the same blinding white. A medallion hung against his chest, a ring of platinum half as thick as his little finger, and as broad as half his palm adorned the neck of the agent, with a simple symbol engraved in black upon the dull surface. Two sinuous lines, like the waves of the ocean, parallel to one another, the terran symbol of Aquarius. The seal was surrounded by a thin ribbon of shining silver, giving stark contrast in the heat of the Dantooine midday sun.

Agent Kraken of the Illuminatum sped through the main causeway and to the desert beyond. As he poured more power to the forward drive, the heavy cloak took on a rippling effect, the visual representation of energy moving through a fluidic medium, waves floating through the sea, the edges of the cloak snapping like the crash of a tsunami on the shore. A low cackle flowed from his cowl like an underground aquefer, the modulated voice scrambler lending an aqueous quality to the sound as if heard through water. Nobody heard the hideous sound as the speeder's engines took a higher pitch, aiming for an abandoned military outpost some 25 kilometers away.
