Thanates Scyntor strode through the doors, accompanied by the squad of stormtroopers that took Xaph into custody. He had been fully breifed on the situation concerning his intentions and background. The Colonel-General of Imperial Stormtroopers, dressed in an immaculate steel-blue suit that set off the darkness of his skin and the size of his features, stopped before the detention cell and de-activated the force field, motioning for Xaph to join him.

As the man exited the cell, the Colonel-General started walking back towards the exit of the building, keeping his eyes forward as he spoke. "I understand that you desire training at out facilities here, Mr. Xaph. I assume, since your reports came back clean and you got past our standard screening procedures that you have spoken with some officials rather high in command. It isn't often that a private individual is allowed training at Imperial facilities."

Scyntor exited the building and started walking towards the Imperial Training Facility, listening for the man's reaction as the populace of Carida milled about in its daily routine, Stormtroopers going through civil service excercises patrolling the streets. his footsteps were intentilnally shorter and slower than the Colonel-General normally tookl after all, he wanted to be able to hear Xaph's reaction and allow the man to keep up with the pace.

Sorry, I always post in the wrong places :p

Xaph's eyes followed the Colonel-General as they left the facility and gazed upon the parading stormtroopers. Everything about the man exuded pride.

"Colonel-General, I've stayed out of this war since it started, and I've stayed on it's fringes the entire time. I've seen the effects of it, and I've seen what the Galactic Alliance can do. As your background searches probably found, I'm a Bounty Hunter, and a pretty good one. I was in the Guild before the war started, and the Galactic Alliance owns that Guild. But they insist they are independent.

I want to stop this hypocrisy. The Galactic Alliance is weak, and it is everything the Empire is not. It is not order, it is not peace. It is in-fighting, back-stabbing and corruption. And I'm pretty good at fighting, but I'm pretty sure that the Empire can make me better. Colonel-General, you can turn me into a weapon. If you can do that, you can use me on the Galactic Alliance."


Xaph kept his face pointed away from the Colonel-General at all times, not letting him see his eyes. His eyes would show no emotion, ruining the effect of his speech.

The Colonel-General listened to Xaph's speech in silence, his hands clasped easily behind his back. He took in the words with passive silence as they approached the main gates of the Imperial Training facility. The sentries stationed on either side snapped to attention with Scyntoir's passing. Thanates continued to listen as Xaph finished his speech, then spoke again softly.

"It is of no concern to you what our background checks turned up, suffice it to say that the total of your assets and flaws proved adequate for us to not detain you on the spot. In the meantime, I must tell you that I am inherently distrustful of anyone that sells themselves to the highest bidder, that includes bounty hunters." Thanates stopped Xaph in the central courtyard and turned to face the man, his arms folding across his chest. His bottom hand slipped fingertips below the jacket of his suit, pats of his fingers lightly grasping the well-worn hilt of his favorite vibroblade.

"My perception of your reasoning for coming here is highly suspicious, but as I have received orders to allow you access to our facilities it is not my place to make that judgement. However, as I was entrusted to your care and teaching there will be a few modifications made to your training program that will bypass certain aspects of training at these facilities." Thanates leaned in just the slightest bit, his presence looming over the bounty hunter as troopers clad in white armor, and various unarmored recruits jogged in time to march chants around the barracks. His brown eyes locked with Xaph's, scrutinizing the man intently.

"If you want to convince me otherwise, Xaph, you had best do so immediately."

"I assure you, Colonel-General, I am no longer in the business of selling myself to the highest bidder. This war is more than that, it has become personal. The Rebel Thanagarian, and her Bounty Hunter's Guild: They have wronged me. Just over a year ago, they tried to put me to death."

I harbor no love for them. If I had my choice, I would see them all dead, by my hand. Even now, they have placed a bounty on my head, and even now, I am hunted. Should they attack me, I will be prepared for them. Should the Empire will me to attack them, they shall know no mercy."

Thanates studied Xaph's concealed face and posture a moment longer, then unfolded his hands and pulled a datapad out of his pocket. He began to make some notations to it as he watched Xaph, then passed the bounty hunter the padd. "Very well, then. You will have your chance. I have scheduled you for a proficiency test at 1345 today... it will give you enough time to get your quarters situated. I douldn't advise you spend too much time unpacking, though."

Scyntor smiled as pressed his thumb to the top of the datacard, write-protecting it against tampering. He nodded very subtly to the stormtroopers to have their eyes kept on him - he knew that bounty hunters were known to be able to bypass things as simple as fingerprint readers, and he didn't want anyone tampering with this padd. "If you do as well as I'm expecting you too, you will be on the transport in two days leaving for Yinchorr... if you want to help the Empire, you will be doing it with the best training we have. Good luck, Xaph... don't prove me wrong."

With that, Scyntor turned and walked towards the parade grounds, leaving Xaph alone in the company of two stormtroopers who politely, but professionally escorted him to the administrative wing. Scyntor paused as he turned and watched Xaph go... Jax would be able to tell even better than he the true intent of the man he saw vanishing into the halls of the Imperial training facility.
