19 BBY

A joint task force of Jedi, Clone Troopers and civilian ‘experts’, disguised as the mercenary company ‘The Star Blades’ completed one of their infiltration missions against the Separatists and headed to one of their safe ports aboard their transport ship Sun Dog. Clone Commander ‘Gundark’ received a priority one communication from the office of the Supreme Chancellor. It read:

_*Order 66*: In the event of Jedi officers acting against the interests of the Republic, and after receiving specific orders verified as coming directly from the Supreme Commander (Chancellor), GAR commanders will remove those officers by lethal force, and command of the GAR will revert to the Supreme Commander (Chancellor) until a new command structure is established.
Commander Gundark immediately set out from his office with 2 of his troopers, located the Jedi Master on board (an Ithorian named Ror Whuvuum) and executed him. However, he did it in plain sight of the civilians on board, who were none too thrilled that the clone troopers had gone off the deep end. The resulting firefight was brutal and destructive, with the Sun Dog suffering catastrophic damage. The few civilian ‘experts’, even fewer surviving clone troopers and the lone Jedi Padawan were able to steer the ship into a controlled crash landing on an out of the way planet spaceport. They were able to sell the salvage of the ship, and the survivors dispersed, by themselves or in small groups. This is the story of one of those groups…

The cast (in order of … my whim…):

Neth: Miraluka, Male, Jedi Padawan: Neth was close to the end of his training at the time of Order 66. He has secured his master’s lightsaber and training holocron, and sticks with the rest of his group for mutual protection. He is aware he is Wanted and has an Enemy, so he does his padawan best to lay low.

Izza: Zeltron, Female, Face/Rogue: Can be very persuasive, is an excellent pilot, and a good shot with a blaster.

Gonzo: Rodian, Male, Scout/Tracker: Gonzo is at his best in natural environments, and is very sneaky when needed.

Morder: Feeorin, Male, Soldier of Fortune: The obvious soldier/thug of the group. At his best with a weapon in his hand… any weapon.

Slade: Clone Trooper, Male: Survivor of the clone wars Salde wnet underground, ending up on Cato Nemoidia. A chance encounter with his old ‘star-bladers’ has awakened his spirit to serve… and perhaps something more…
