Location: If there's a brilliant center to the Universe, Costa Rica is the farthest away from it.
Iulan had take his golved hand from the steering yoke to shiled his eyes from the incandescent globe of light where another of the Yuuzhan Vong's vessels perished.
Most of the Jeedai's Kat'nas had separated the Yuuzhan Vong's support vessels from the Punisher and had quickly started to take them out. The Rebel Forces had started to advance from their defensive positions under the cover of the Wondrous.
The Punisher knew that it couldn't advance past the Rebels defensive lines and rotated to have a greater firing arc on the Wondrous advance force. The Chariot still remained in a advantaged position over the Punisher and it's five kilometers of threatening weapons stared defiant at the Punisher.
If nothing else the presence of the Chariot was certain to disturb the Overlord, and more importantly to distract him.
Iulan led another group of coralskippers against some weapon emplacements on the Punisher's hull. With Rebel fighters starting to attack the Punisher's escorting fighters and with such a big target in sights his squadron continued to punish the Punisher.
Then in a single instant the universe turned black and white, and red and green. He seemed to be lost in eternity, he felt the motion of swirling around, and the notion of falling. In a last exhilarating instant he felt a scream of terror though the Force.
And then Nothing.

OOC: Just don't kill the Punisher, make it flee.. whatever.

OOC: IULANNNNNNNNNNN!!!!

IC:
Evan grimly smiled as another Yuuzhan Vong cruiser exploded. The combined forces of the Jedi-Vong and the Rebel Alliance were pounding their enemies. It appeared even the Punisher couldn't hold out for much longer. So many lives had been lost, but their sacrafices had not been in vain.

"Keep up the pressure Shadow Wing."

Shadow Wing was doing a great job of keep the Punisher's skips in check. Just when they thought the Punisher had run dry, another wave would come at them. Every once and a while Shadow Wing would make a quick attack on the Punisher. Chunks of it began to fall off.

The Chariot and the Wonderous continued to fire. The Punisher was still a force to be reckoned with, no matter what the damage was. She was now outgunned and overmatched, but she she held her ground. Suddenly, she began to turn away.

Evan's comm exploded with the sound of cheering. It was louder than at some sports game. He smiled, it reminded him of his childhood. Why not? Soon, he too joined in the cheering. Soon, the entire Yuuzhan Vong fleet was either destroyed or in hyperspace. The battle had been won.

Through the various human frequencies screams of joy and cheer came through, fervent enough to crack a smile from the stern face of the Jeedai Vong Warmaster.
He could detect a sense of relief in his own warriors, they had survived, they lost five Kat'nas, twenty more suffered severe damaga, but most of his fleet was unscathed.
The blazebugs had a difficult time representing all the information of the battle area. Lots of pieces of debris were confouded with coralskippers, metallic plates that could be mistaken for Rebel fighters.
And perhaps a cloaked TIE Defender amidst them all.
Where was Iulan?
The question came inescapably. The answer eluded him.
Dead? Could his God die?
Lost? Hurt? Thoughts plagued him, worry and awe paralyzed him. Iulan was his guide. A compass.
Rjiuvan barked some orders to his first mate, then left and entered the technological sanctum. Iulan had insisted on him learning to use the mechanical aberrations, just in case.
Rjuvan touched the cold metal with his warm human hand pressing buttons and turning knobs, he dialed down a specific frequency.
"General Hecht-Man, I need your help." Rjiuvan spoke without delay, without wasting words.
Before any reply came back he linked another frequency.
"Admiral Ackbar, I need you help." He repeated the same request. "Iulan S'Tor is missing."

Darkness was all that was. Only he existed. Naked in the dark space.
No, he wasn't alone. He knew there was someone else, watching him.
"Reveal yourself." Iulan commanded.
A booming vicious laughter answered him, followed by the ever familiar snaphiss of his saber.
"I welcome you, Iulan. And I greet you, from one god to another."

Evan searched the area intensivly, all the while calling Iulan on his comm. There was nothing.

"Iulan? Iulan?"

Who could have killed Iulan?Perhaps he was merely captured.... but it seemed unlikely. Could Iulan truely be dead? This brought a great sadness to Evan. He sighed. Another one is taken by the horrors of war. With Iulan, will we be able to establish the alliance? Once again, he sighed.

"Iulan? Iulan?"

Finally he conceded defeat.

"Rjiuvan I regret to inform you that I can find no trace of him."

OOC: :cry:

Evan's confirmation had followed Ackbar's renewed promise of a renewed and intensified search. There were countless posibilites for Iulan's fate. Assuming death was the easiest course, but Rjiuvan refused it. The coralskipper pilots had reported that in a moment Iulan had simply vanished, they did not find it unusual since he frequently cloaked and decloaked again.
"General Hecht-man, will you invite me to a meeting with Admiral Ackbar?"
The question clearly was closer to an order, than a petition. Evan obviously confused answered.
"Warmaster, following Iulan's disappearance will you join me in a meeting with Admiral Ackbar?"
"I will certainly." Rjiuvan answered. He had to invite himself, he did not want to simply impose him on the Rebels, that was not his purpose.
What was his purpose? Without Iulan was there a purpose at all?
The God That Bleeds, he had called him. Could he have become the God That DIES?

Iulan felt every fiber in his body give away as he attempted to stand. He was weak, and tired. With notorious effort Iulan moved reclined on a wall and looked up at the dark sillhouette.
"Supreme Overlord Shimraa, I presume?"
"Gods do not require introductions."
Iulan did not say a thing, but rather closed his eyes, as if trying to find some strength. Strength? Yes, there was somewhere where he could sap strength. Strength and Energy. Might, that was it! No, no. It was the Force. With closed eyes he gathered strenght around him, just enough to hold him steady and to look into the Overlord's eyes.
"You, my young friend, will soon stand at my side!" Shimraa dictated.
"Really? I thought you wanted me dead!"
Shimraa's vicious laughter hurt his ears.
"I do, but Gods cannot be killed. They have to be subdued, you do control powers I do not possess. Through you they will be mine."
Iulan snorted. "I've lived through this before, and I escaped. How will you stop me?"
Shimraa only stared at him.
"Because this time, you cannot escape. You will serve me, or perish."

Evan took his seat in the meeting room on Mon Calamari. It felt good to be on dry land again, though you could hardly describe Mon Calamari as dry. The recent battle had been a great sucess, but the disaperance of Iulan still nagged at him. Couldn't he have used the force to tell what had happened before he died? It was a question not easily answered. A question that probably would never be answered.

Admiral Ackbar had already been there when Evan entered and Rjiuvan entered a moment later. Everyone exchanged a formal greeting and the meeting had begun. Rjivuan began by saying.....

"My presence makes you uncomfortable." It was a statement.
Ackbar choked on the Warmaster's words. Grand Admiral Hawk seated in a silent corner only widened his eyes.
"Over the years I have dealt with allies your-"
"Are you so certain that we are allies, Admiral?" Rjivuan retorted, and Ackbar remained mute.
"Do not fear, I am not here to intimidate, nor am I here to sign an alliance with you. The only man who can do that has vanished. I am here to tell you that I will be pursuinig the Punisher."
The grave voice of Ackbar answered. "Even with the damage sustained the Punisher is not likely to be an easy objective, Warmaster."
"Nor do I intend it that way. It will be a battle worthy of the epic hunts of my race."
"If that's all you wanted to say, then you shouldn't have come here, Vong." Hawk snapped.
"I have come to offer you the Kat'nas that have suffered heavy damage, I don't have the time to repair them, my hunt will set off at once. As payment I request that, if possible you could do some attacks on the Yuuzhan Vong, keeping the Overlord busy, as I hunt him down."
Twenty Kat'nas for a couple of diversionary attacks was a pretty good offer.
"WE are not mercenaries, Warmaster."
"No, you are not, but we have a common foe." Rjiuvan said.
"Sir, Warmaster, I may be having a thought here:..." Evan offered his proposal.

OOC: Wow Hawk survived his suicide attempt woohoo.

IC:
Evan looked around nervously. It was often Hawk had soften up a little since the Jedi-Vong had saved them but it was just a little. Considering what Evan was about to say, it was doubtful Hawk would react positivly. Evan looked at Rjiuvan and said:

"Warmaster Shadow Wing has been reduced to half of its strength but it is still a formidable group. If I may offer you our services, I would love to join you on your attempt to hunt down the Punisher."

Hawk looked surprised for a moment, but then he seemed to understand.

"Well General I am completly against this but you have been right before. I will reluctantly allow you to go on this mission."

He then turned to Rjiuvan.

"And yes we ail accept your offer. We shall once again being our raiding campaign in exchange for your twenty dreadnoughts."

Rjiuvan replied....

Rjiuvan's face showed some signs of satisfaction.
"Whenever a diplomat or an executor seals a deal they do so using abusive long words. A warrior seals his deals with actions, honoring his partner. I will not give in to voice excessive and grateful compliments, instead I will leave immediately in my hunt."
Ackbar nodded aprehenseively, and Hawk looked a tad confused.
"I will expect your crews to take over the damaged Kat'nas while my crews are transferring over to the rest of my fleet."
"Certainly, Warmaster," Ackbar acknowledged and took out his comlink.
"I will be on the Chariot of God, if you need to contact me. I will be expecting you, General."
Rjiuvan left, leaving the trio of Rebel Commanders in Ackbar's office.

Shimraa's face showed some signs of satisfaction.
"Whenever a prisoner needs to be educated, he must learn so through pain."
Iulan snorted lightly as another vile creature sent an electric shock trough his painreceptors.
"Pain, is not for you to abuse of. Pain is a connection between flesh and soul, a reminder that we are part of a living energy, and part of crude matter."
Another bolt made him cry in agony, then followed by a kick in the stomach by the Warmaster.
"You are a pathetic creature, you bleed and feel pain. A real God is above that!"
Another kick.
"You are a mockery." Shimraa sentenced as he put his foot on Iulan's Vong hand.
"I am a God. I am a Knight of the Void. I am a SErvant of the Force."Iulan dared to say, just before the Overlord's massive feet hit his nose.
"The Force." He spat blue saliva on Iulan's eyes. The saliva burned in his eyes."The Force is the greatest sign of your weakness!"
Shimraa kicked him again and left him lying in his own blood, the smell of burnt hair and the alien smell of Yuuzhan Vong made him go sick.
"Here," another soothing voice said. "Take this and recover."
Iulan tried to take a look at the nice person. But the burning saliva and his own tears blurred his eyes.
"Who... Whoaaare yiiiiiiii?"
"Someone who should have died too long ago."

Evan looked around and saw both Admirals nod at him. Hawk's nod was a little more reluctant but a nod nonetheless. He briskly walked from the room and pulled out his comlink.

"Buzz?"

"I am here sir."

"Round up everyone in Shadow Wing that's combat ready and meet me in hangar 47 on Mon Calamari."

"Understood."

Evan looked around at the group of pilots assembled. There were around 36 of them there, a pretty good amount for the upcoming mission. This will be hard to explain...

"Men we are about to embark upon the toughest mission faced yet. We are going to join Rjiuvan and the Jedi-Vong in the quest to hunt down the Punisher."

Evan saw many shocked faces.. as he had expected.

"I understand this is shocking to you but the mission we go on is vital. The rest of the fleet will be creating a diversion by starting another raiding campaign."

Evan decided to leave the whole Iulan part out.

"Any questions?"

Ruby 6 spoke out:

"Well sir...why?"

"The Punisher is critical to the entier Yuuzhan Vong war effort. If we destroy it victory will not be too far off. I understand there are many questions about our alliance with the Jedi-Vong but that is a story to be told another day. We need to get aboard the Chariot ASAP, so lets move.

OOC: Woohoo

The day ended without further excitement. The Jeedai Vong handed the damaged Katnas to the Rebels and provided a bountiful of tips to repair them faster, and how to operate them more efficiently.
Shadow Wing had transferred over to the Chariot. Rjiuvan had not greeted them personally, at least not yet. They had been given a rather big area on the vessel, obviously close to the hangar. The Rebel pilots weren't discouraged to explore the ship, neither were they encouraged to. Jeedai Vong looked at them with the same mixture of suspicion and curiousity that the Rebels gave them back.
Then they entered darkspace.
Soon after entrance, the Warmaster descended to the hangar where Evan and his thirty-five pilots were having a short discussion.
"Warmaster," Evan said and halfbowed.
The rest of his pilots heistated, but imitated the gesture.
"Your wing of shadows is impressive." The Warmaster commented.
Evan smiled.
"We are eager to see action, sir."
"As any warrior is, certainly. But a warrior must weigh his reage for battle with prundency."
"Of course, before you came we were wondering where our hunt would start."
Rjiuvan looked beyond them all, as if he could see through the hull of his ship.
"Deep in Yuuzhan Vong space. From where all started, from there we will continue searching for them. The Punisher is seriously injured, so she will withdraw to the heart of their domains."
"That's suicide," a pilot shouted.
"A warrior is always certain that war will claim his life." Rjiuvan answered solemnly. "Our ship can go unnoticed through their worlds."
"I understand. But you have not yet revealed the location." Evan reminded him.
"Hoth." Rjiuvan said. "In sixteen hours we will be arriving there, Hoth has been their main shipwomb for the past years. I recommend you rest, as we will find a strong resistance there."
Evan nodded, and Rjiuvan left.

Shadow Wing emerged from the Chariot to see that Rjiuvan was not kidding. A huge flotilla of ships were amassed against them. In the middle of them...the Punisher.

"Ok Shadow follow me in. First we'll hold back the skips then we'll move in on the capital ships."

All around them were Jedi-Vong craft. It was truely going to be a fierce battle. The first wave of coralskippers had almost arrived. Shadow Wing formed up into three squads: Shadow squad, Sapphire squad and Ruby squad. The battle then begun. Both sides exchanged salvos and then it turned into a thick melee.

Evan saw a pair of skips going after Saphire 7. He came at them with a swift vengeance. One was immediatly blow into pieces of multi colored coral and the other didn't last too long. The first engagment lasted a few more moments, then the enemies retreated and regrouped.

The second wave of coralskippers came at them and it began the same. Salvos were exchanged, then a thick furball. So far all we going well for the Jedi-Vong forces. Evan followed a coralskipper furiously. It dived down and then was blown away by Shadow 3. Suddenly, Evan heard a scream on his comm. He looked and saw that Shadow 5, Antilliles, was gone.

OOC: Antilliles is quiting the rpg :(

OOC: It's been a while, hasn't it? Whatever you're thinking about it, I didn't forget about it, I only had other things to do, and couldn't sit down and write. Sorry.
OOC: Antililles is quitting? Why?

IC:
Warmaster Rjiuvan Shai frowned at the furious exchange of fire from both sides, starfighters evaporated in a last anguished moment, coral incinerated and exploded in the blackness of space.
The Punisher, true to its tactics remained in the middle of the enemy formation without moving. By holding still it avoided betrating any of the nervousness they had to be feeling.
Rjiuvan's warfleet had scored a psychological blow. A so numerous warfleet so deep in the Yuuzhan Vong territory was a certain scare. Rjiuvan still looked at the battle, he knew that if he stayed longer his fleet would be decimated, as did the Yuuzhan Vong.
Rjiuvan's fleet wasted energy and precious time in a serious of difficult maneuvers to shield themselves, and to reduce the damage, while incresing the damage done to their enemies.
In his display, Rjiuvan saw one more of the General's men die.
A battle will not be won by the blood spilled. That he had learned with Iulan.
Should he retreat, should he withdraw, or should he press further, hoping that his determination scared the Yuuzhan Vong into a withdrawal.
He had no time for making the choice as the human's general's voice cut through his thought.
"Warmaster." Came the static-laden voice. "They are fleeing, the asteroids are exploding to cover their exit."
Rjiuvan smiled and breathed lightly.
He had won.
