(The Jedi Temple One Week after the events of Chapter 4, Master Desmond Ortu of the Jedi Temple Security Force and Major Kalin of Republic Intelligence meet in a deserted hallway)
Desmond- You can't be serious about what you're preposing, what your suggesting is treasonous at best and I can only think of what the Senate will think.
Kalin- Master Desmond the evidence is irrefutable there is a spy within the Jedi Temple, the question is who could it be?
Desmond- If you are suggesting it was one of my boys think again! I know where they are at all times, they're all loyal.
Kalin- As are my men, but this leaves us with a bigger problem: there is a rogue Jedi within the Temple sending Republic secretes to the Separatists.
Kalin- What is it agent?
Ben- It's all here, someone accessed this computer and sent four unauthorized messages the first around the time Fitze escaped from Republic custody, the second during the Battle for Fondor, the third during the Mission to Obroa-Skai, and the most recent to Naboo.
Kalin- Good work agent, see if you can find anymore clues to our spies identity.
Kalin- It all makes perfect sense each message was sent just when our forces were ambushed by the Separatists. But the last one troubles me, what's on Naboo?
Desmond- Hmm, Master Alinta Knight and her apprentice Karlo Yond'Ull and another apprentice named Kuve Bac'h are leading a diplomatic mission to discuss a full military alliance with the Mon Calamari.
Kalin- Then we have to warn them!
Desmond- No that would only alert this spy that we're onto him or her, we have to play this game of shadows until we can catch our elusive spy.
(Naboo, the Theed royal palace grounds)
Karlo- Master I don't see why we have to negotiate a treaty with the Mon Calamari, didn't the Republic just liberate them, and I still don't see why three Jedi are needed for this mission.
Alinta- There's more to being a Jedi than just fighting Karlo, negotiations are one of those. And considering the "aggressive negotiations" we've had on Naboo in the past it's only safe to bring a strong escort.
Ambassador Nochuk- Ha! Ha! You Jedi have such humor! And there are still many pro-separatist factions on Mon Calamari but I'm sure we can reach a mutual agreement with them.
(As the party rounds the corner they are confronted by a hooded figure. The Jedi quickly activating their lightsabers and assuming defensive positions)
Alinta- Halt assassin!
Karlo- Reveal yourself coward! Face us!
(Slowly the figure turns around to face the Jedi)
Nochuck- This is an outrage! Who are you!
Mehendrish- Me? I am just a simple messenger. Here to offer the you a choice: agree to an alliance with Count Dooku or suffer the consequences that come without such protection.
Karlo- Wait! I recognize you! You're the Sith who captured my brother during Darth Vulneros's campaign!
Mehendrish- Ah so your are his brother? I certainly hope that you are stronger than he was. What a disappointment from the legendary House of Yond'Ull!
Alinta- Enough talk, surrender you're outnumbered one to three.
Mehendrish- Then this should be only too easy fro you Jedi! Come let's put on a show for the Ambassador, shall we?
(Alinta attacks the Twilek Sith first her blow easily blocked)
Mehendrish- You lack power, Jedi open yourself to the Dark Side! Let it fuel your attacks!
(Karlo hastily attacks Mehendrish who easily blocks his blow)
Karlo- I defeated Darth Vulnero! How can a blind Sith stand a chance against me?
Mehendrish- A better question is how can you stand against a blind Sith?
(Mehendrish breaks off and sends Karlo flying back with a force blast)
Mehendrish- I have let the Force be my sight like the Miraluka and I have become stronger for it!
(Kuve then thrusts at Mehendrish who again blocks it)
Mehendrish- Ah the Ikotchi, I sense much fear in you. Use that to your advantage! Feed your rage and give into the Dark Side!
Kuve- No...I- I won't listen to you!
(Alinta again engages the Sith as the other Jedi charge)
Alinta- You can't win even with your power we still outnumber you!
Mehendrish- Win? Are all battles about winning? No, perhaps I was simply sent with a message, a message of doom for the Republic. In three days time we will strike a fatal blow to the Grand Army of the Republic- a blow from which there will be no healing!
(Mehendrish forces Alinta back as she sprints away using Force Speed to escape the Jedi)
Karlo- After her! Don't let her escape!
(Turning the corner the Jedi are confronted by a squad of battle droids as Mehendrish looks on)
Mehendrish- Remember what I have said Jedi, I am many things but I do not lie. Farewell Jedi!
(The remaining battle droids are quickly dispatched as Mehendrish makes her escape)
(The Jedi then rejoin Nochuk in the plaza)
Nochuk- There you are! Who was that and why were they here?
Alinta- It was a Dark Jeid sent by Count Dooku to intimidate you and us.
Nochuk- Well they did not work! I Have had enough of Count Dooku's less that scrupulous tactics! I am signing that treaty right away! Thank you for your time Master Jedi you have my gratitude.
(As the ambassador walks off the Jedi reconvene)
Kuve- What could she have meant? 'A wound from which there is no healing'?
Karlo- Healing? Could she have meant the bacta healing fluid?
Alinta- No I think I have another target in mind. Master Boris and Master Shele'kor are on a mission to Manaan to retrieve much needed supplies, including several large shipments of kolto which are badly needed by our armies.
Karlo- Then we must warn them immediately! The fate of the Republic could well depend upon it...
