Coruscant, the Jedi Temple. The Following events take place shortly after the Battle above Coruscant as seen at the start of Revenge of the Sith.
Jedi Master Harash Soru finds he has a breif moment of rest following the funeral of his Master Michel Kringe.
Kit Fisto: "It is so good to sit and talk as friends."
Shaak Ti: "Yes, the war does not give a lot of thought to friendships."
Harash Soru: "I only wish that Master Plo and Master Ki could be here."
Kit Fisto: "I know, I wish Aayla were here to. It has been some time since I last saw her."
Luminara Unduli: "Aayla is very well Kit. She said she will see you soon."
Obi-Wan Kenobi: "Yes, and Master Plo instructed me to give you his best Hara, as did Master Mundi."
Shaak Ti: "Well the war is coming to an end what with Dooku's death. Hopefully we shall see them both soon."
Hara smiled at the thought of his friends. Suddenly however, his holopad began to beep.
Harash Soru: "Yes?"
A small image of Mace Windu appeared before him.
Mace Windu: "Hara, we have a mission for you. Come meet Master Yoda and I in the main hall."
Hara nodded dutifully before looking over at his friend.
Harash Soru: "Well, I guess I'm off. I shall see you all very soon I hope, when we can celebrate and end to this awful war."
Kit Fisto: "May the Force be with you my friend."
Hara hurried through the Temple to find Masters Yoda and Mace waiting for him.
Harash Soru: "Sorry I'm late Masters, I was talking to some friends."
Yoda: "Hmm, a break you needed Hara. Understandable it is, matter it does not."
Mace Windu: "Unfortunately my friend we are going to have to tear you away from the Temple."
Yoda: "Mm, to Tatooine you must go with your forces."
Harash Soru: "I thought Master Ferroda cleared Tatooine?"
Mace Windu: "The Separartists have reappeared, only a small force but we need you to take a force and drive them back off the planet."
Harash Soru: "Understood Masters, I shall leave immediately."
Mace smiled and shook his friend's hand.
Mace Windu: "Goodbye my friend. And may the Force be with you."
Tatooine, a few days later. Under his helmet Clone COmmander Player grinned fiercly.
Commander Player: "We've got them on the run, keep pushing forward!"
The tall figure of Harash Soru landed nimbly beside Player, his lightsaber a blur as he parried blaster bolts.
Harash Soru: "This may be our last battle Player!"
Commander Player: "Well if all the Droids are going to start fighting this badly then I think I can live with that."
Hara grinned at the Commander before rushing forwards along with Jedi Master Rohan Ab'lov and his former Padawan Dana Kowls.
The Commandoes of the 77th Airbourne hurried up behind the Jedi, laying down a volley of covering fire as their Generals rushed the Droid lines.
Commander Player: "Heavy, take the left flank. Scurry, get that sniper on our right!"
Dana Kowls: "Save some us boys!"
Hara suddenly frowned, his fluent swings pausing for a moment.
Rohan Ab'lov: "Master Soru? What's wrong?"
Harash Soru: "It's... I can't sense Master Windu or Master Fisto in the Force anymore."
Rohan's expression hardened slightly.
Rohan Ab'lov: "Focus on the fight Hara. We can work this out later."
Player quickly ducked behind a rocky as a spray of blaster shots flew over his head. He was about to start shooting again when his holopad began to beep.
Player lifted the holopad and hit the activate button. A hunched figure in a dark robe appeared before him.
Chancellor Palpatine: "Commander Player. Execute Order 66."
Player blinked under his helmet before nodding.
Commander Player: "Yes. My Lord."
All over the galaxy, heroes fell, stars were snuffed out.
On Endor Master Draconic Fernez was cut down.
On his fleet above Ryloth, Master Tron-117 was shot in the back.
And despite his skill, Master Noah Dentirii was eventually brought down in the tombs of Rhen Var.
All over the Galaxy, the Clone Troopers cut down their Generals without hesitation. But Commander Player did hesitate.
Commander Player: "Did you all hear that?"
Nat: "Yeah, what do we do."
Dax: "We're bred to follow orders."
Scurry: "But we're also trained to use our initiative. And I swear you'll have to gun me down first to get to the General."
Player nodded before glancing over at the other Commandoes. They all nodded at their Commander.
Heavy: "It doesn't make sense Sir."
Commander Player: "Agreed."
Player turned to shout at General Soru.
COmmander Player: "General! I need to talk to you now!"
hara turned and jumped behind the rock Player was using for cover.
Harash Soru: "What's up Commander?"
Commander Player: "You have to run General. Take Dana and Rohan and go back to your ships, get away from the Clones and the Republic."
Harash Soru: "I don't understand."
Commander Player: "The Chancellor has branded the Jedi as traitors to the Republic. Every CLone has orders to shoot Jedi on sight, I can hold the order back for a short while but the three of you must leave now."
Harash Soru: "But.."
Commander Player: "General! Please, trust me."
Hara nodded slowly.
Harash Soru: "I do. We will go now, and thank you Commander."
Player watched as Soru gathered the other Jedi and together they broke off into the wastelands of Tatooine.
COmmander Player: "May the Force be with you General."
The Jedi ran for a long time, using the Force to carry them far away from the Clone Army before allowing themselves a break.
Rohan Ab'lov: "What in Sith's name is going on?"
Harash Soru: "Player was right Rohan, reach out with the Force."
Rohan shook his head sadly.
ROhan Ab'lov: "I cannot sense anyone else."
Dana Kowls: "Masters. We have company."
The Jedi turned to see a pair of speeders racing towards them.
Harash Soru: "Quick, before they report our position!"
Rohan and Dana leapt into action. Rohan quickly decapitated one Trooper whilst Dana impaled the other. The two Jedi then quickly took control of their speeders.
Hara hopped up behind Dana.
Harash Soru: "Get us back to our landing zone, we need to get off this planet."
The bridge of the Draxon, Admiral John Vandarr waits nervously to contact Commander Player.
John Vandarr: "Player! What's going on? There's talk that th Jedi betrayed the Republic!"
Commander Player: "That's the story. Palpatine has ordered the execution of all Jedi."
John Vandarr: "Where's Soru?"
Commander Player: "Running. Adiral you need to stall for time. Keep the hyperdrive rings open so that the Generals can escape this planet."
John Vandarr: "Understood Player. I'll do what I can."
As Player turned his holopad off a Captain approached him.
ARF Captain: "Commander, tracks indicate they are heading in the direction of Mos Eisley. Most likely heading back to their ships."
Commander Player: "Good work Captain. Alert the troops stationed there and let's see if we can catch them up."
The outskirts of Mos Eisley.
Dana Kowls: "Finally, the ships!"
Harash Soru: "R7, fire up the engines, we are leaving!"
ARF Captain: "You there, stop!"
The Jedi spun around to see a large squad of Clones racing towards them. Rohan gritted his teeth and activated his lightsaber.
Harash Soru: "Rohan what are you doing?"
Rohan Ab'lov: "Buying you time!"
Harash Soru: "But Rohan!"
Rohan Ab'lov: "Hara I am an old man! Let me make my sacrafice for you, if we all leave they will shoot us down before we get away. Let me do for you what Michel did for you."
Harash Soru: "Very well. Thank Rohan, may the Force be with you."
Hara scrabbled up onto his fighter and jumped into the cockpit.
Dana Kowls: "Where's Rohan?"
Harash Soru: "Not coming."
Dana looked back at the old Jedi Master and nodded sadly.
Rohan listened as the two Jedi starfighters lifted off the ground and began to climb into orbit.He turned his gaze onto the Clones and tightened his grip on his lightsaber.
Rohan Ab'lov: "Come on then, lets see how well you really were trained."
John Vandarr: "General, I have managed to delay the shutdown of hyperdrive rings 4, 5 and 7. Use them to get away."
Harash Soru: "Thank you Admiral, We owe you our lives."
John Vandarr: "Tell you what, buy me a drink after I ditch the EMpire and we'll call it even."
Harash Soru: "Sounds like a plan John."
Rohan Ab'lov knelt on the ground, clutching the wound on his right arm in calm silence. He looked up as COmmander Player appeared.
Commander Player: "What's the situation Captain?"
ARF Captain: "10 dead, twice as many wounded. the Jedi made a real mess of things."
Rohan alowed a small grin to spread across his face.
ARF Captain: "Do you want to interrogate him Sir?"
Rohan looked at Player and gave a very slight shake of his head.
Commander Player: "No. We will not get him to tell us anything. It would be a waste of time."
ARF Captain: "Then the honour of executing him falls to you Sir."
Player nodded as he looked down at Rohan. He slowly lifted his helmet off of his head so that he could look Rohan in the eye. In his mind, the Clone could hear the Jedi Master's voice.
Rohan Ab'lov: "I forgive you Player. You are doing what have to do. Survive find Hara and Dana and help them. I forgive you."
Rohan looked up at Player as the Commander raised his pistol to the Jedi's head. Played sighed and squeezed the trigger.
And Rohan Ab'lov's vision went dark.
-- Author's Note --
Ok so I'm now done with the CLone Wars series and I hope you all enjoyed it :)
If you want to read on, the next series is the Legend of Harash Soru along with the sub-series of An Increasing Threat and A Deadly Response.
I've decided to give the Galactic Civil War a miss and will instead be working on a new series entitled "Bloodlines" which will tell the story of Harash Soru after the Galactic Civil War.
As always hope you all enjoyed it and don't forget to leave your thoughts! :)
I've followed you awesome series without commenting on many. I never had time to, sorry. It's been awesome, and I've enjoyed each episode, even though I'm not a great SW fan. I guess it was just really well written... great job!
The series was great and had some excellent and dramatic moments. I really like how things developed, although it was a little bit sad sometimes, especially when Rohan, Ian, Levid's father and Michel died. Though it is a very nice storyline and I can't wait for the next series! BTW, will Player play a role in it? Clones age very fastly, but he might still live at that time.
