The presence observed its new hand as it hoisted itself into the hovertrain. Cathar and female apparently, judging by the markings, structure, and delicacy, as well as the obscenely long and garishly painted nails. Its previous host lay on the platform, no more than a pile of ash that would soon be spread diffusely by the rush of air brought by the train's departure. The presence had strained its limits in that body, to the point where sheer will fuelled by an unquenchable thirst for revenge, and a rage so powerful that it could rend entire worlds was all that held it together. The body itself failed hours before, and even as animated corpse trudged to this station, the decay continued. Flesh necrotized and dissolved until the body itself unseamed in several parts, decayed remains of internal organs being restrained only by the uniform worn by what had once been a twenty-something Imperial officer, now unnaturally wizened and twisted with age. Ultimately, the body itself had to be abandoned on the platform, the sheer release of dark energies incinerating the zombie-like corpse as it collapsed against the new host.

And a fighter this one was, too, the presence commented to itself. This woman had been no mere conquest as the officer was. Whoever she had been, she was strong-willed and possessed a strong survival instinct. But few things could match the presence, and the woman was ultimately defeated and annihilated. Fortunately, the brilliant saffron eye color would draw no attention this time, as such ocular pigmentation was perfectly natural in these people. The presence maneuvered the body, slightly awkwardly, to the nearest seat.

It looked around at the diverse crowd on the train. It was disgusting. Even the fact that it had to inhabit both a female and an alien was abhorrent. However, there was a greater purpose at work that demanded its attention beyond even its loathing of being in this body. It was as if the fates were punishing it further for failing to protect what it had in life. And what it was determined to regain.

However, if death would not stop the presence, neither would being contained in a doubly inferior vessel. There was far too much at stake for dislikes to get in its way. It rose from the seat, and walked forward to the destination maps.

Ah, a spaceport... excellent. Although its ultimate destination was where no civilian could even pray to gain access to, getting off the capital of the Galactic Empire was vital to its continued existence. If its original assassin, or his minions, were to discover it had transcended that which few had ever been able to breach, the result would be disastrous. To cheat death was a common occurence in the world of the living, to beat death an impossibilty. Except in this case. However, the presence was not eager for a rematch in death's game. To win once was a miracle of will and power, to win twice would dwarf even the presence's own vast powers.

The body of the Cathar woman slinked back to its seat, and waited out the rest of the journey in silence.
