The Family




“What mercy is there in such a situation?”

Lelith’s modulated voice seemed to make her question that much more grim in nature. Sitting across from a family of four, she stood out as a blackened form amongst golds, yellows, and whites. There was no reaction to her words, causing her to continue.

“I often consider what I would do in a situation like this. Would I allow myself to be a victim? Would I bargain? Would I sacrifice my family for myself?”

She shakes her head somewhat, before offering a snerk that sounded odd given her morose visage’s tendency to warp her words. Leaning forward, she then casually rests her chin on her right hand.

“Is there anything you could do? I mean, I imagine you could embrace finality and reassure yourselves that you’ll be reunited in some afterlife of your choosing, but what’s the point?”


The Sith shrugs her shoulders slightly, before leaning back to slowly rise from her seat. She then addresses the table with open arms, offering them an almost uplifting statement.

“No, it was better to do it this way, to not give you the option at all.”

Lelith slowly turns to leave the family room, letting the corpses of the Zakuul family sit there as a monument to what they had and to what she took away from them.

Eyes in the Sky




“Are you happy?”

The young girl moved through the Zakuulian streets unhindered given her sizable escort of Knights. She stopped on occasion to observe whatever caught her eye. A merchant, a group of people, a stray animal, all of them were given equal attention. It wasn’t so much pity as it was curiosity, as if the red-haired female simply wanted to understand them.

“Are you safer here?”

The girl’s pale white skin stood out amongst the darkened corners of the urban center. Her jade eyes portrayed a sense of wonder, as if the sheer number of people in such a small area was some sort of miracle. She smiled kindly to a rather well to do couple that passed her and her retinue, before offering them a polite bow of her head. Such a simple interaction, yet it portrayed her manners well enough.

“Does he treat you well?”

The smile faded from the young female’s lips, before she carried on with her route. It was unclear as to whether she was simply going for a walk among the people or if there was a destination of particular importance at the end of her journey.

“Did she treat you well?”

As a pair of lift doors opened to allow the small group in, the girl looked up toward the skyline opposite of her, to a particular spot. Her gaze remained focused on that point for several moments, before the doors closed to carry her away to her final destination.

“Could things have been different?”

Lelith lowered the rifle, lifting her eyes from the scope as the doors of the lift closed. The girl was looking directly at the Sith and yet Lelith didn’t seem to mind. If anything, it made her more curious as she slowly stood up from her prone position. She let the rifle drop to the floor, before turning to leave the area, her blackened coverings flapping lightly in the high wind of the rooftop.

“Should things have been different?”
