The interior of the cavern held vehicles of all sizes; from one-seated bikes to multi-seated landspeeders, there was a distinct lack of room for anything else within. Anari could feel the disappointment of a few people at her flank. She heard the relaxing of their weapons in hand as they scanned the area, but the minority among them trusted her senses enough to know that the area held no true danger. The only threat to the small infiltration unit were the explosive charges set along the walls leading to the inner ruins ahead and above. If Anari wasn't worried, then neither were they.

“This isn’t much for a raid,” a female soldier spoke up, resting her rifle against a shoulder. “Think this place was for fleeing?”

“Or running supplies,” said another member of the unit. He peered inside one of the more worn speeders. “They’re real junkers. Looks like something only a Jawa would sell. Is this what we’re here for?”

No response came. This caused each soldier around the cavern to look over at Anari. She faced the entryway to the ruins, but didn’t make a sound. Her holocommunicator blared with a combination of blaster fire, calls for assistance, mentions of those who were wounded and trapped across the battlefield, and horrifying reports cut short. Like on the shuttle, the sounds deafened all outside noise and distractions. Those who searched through the speeders continued to do so, but kept their comments to themselves. The others stood and listened with a firmer grasp on their weaponry.

The order to retreat was heard, but the sigh that followed filled Anari with disgust only made worse by the shift in blame that followed seconds later. She shuddered with frustration before turning to the stunned and depressed gazes of her unit, expression serious.

“Before Vasha gave the order, a Sergeant Garza called for assistance in the lower part of the temple. It’s too late to do what I came for, but we can still let that Sergeant and some of his men see tomorrow,” Anari spoke firmly. “Do not overstay your welcome. Do not be heroes. Suppress the enemy and give our people time to escape. Follow the nearest sound of battle. You'll find them ahead. Be quick!”

Anari walked briskly to the entryway they entered from. She caught the last transmission of Vasha risking everything before she placed the communicator near her lips. “Sergeant Garza, my team will cover you from within the temple. A shuttle is on its way. Prepare to evacuate.”

She switched channels to her personal shuttle, buzzing the two pilots that were left idle nearby.

“This is Shuttle Voractyl. Ready for extraction?”

“Negative. There’s been a change of plans. Warm up your laser cannons and reach Sergeant Garza’s position. Lower half of the temple ruins. He’ll likely have the only unit left alive in proximity. My men will move to cover them but I need you to be prepared for anything.”

“Understood, but what about you?”

“I’ll find another way to our fallback position. If you can extract my unit then do so, but Garza and his men take priority.”

“Roger that Master Jedi. We’re on the move,” the pilot replied before communication was cut.

The approaching hum of her shuttle’s engines assured her that getting Garza’s men out would be hasty. Glancing over her shoulder, the backs of her unit disappeared around a corner at the far end of the hallway. The glare of light against their backs hinted that their shields were active and ready to spare them the suffering of any stray blaster round. They weren’t here for direct combat, not at first, but they should be just enough of a threat to send the mercenaries that surrounded Garza scattering.

That only left her.

Stowing away her communicator, Anari closed her eyes and focused on her surroundings; the speeder bikes closest to the entrance wobbled and soon rose into the air, carefully being guided outside. As this happened, the explosives set against the cavern exits were delicately severed from the rocks they were attached to. The majority were placed within the largest vehicles the cavern held, while others were scattered on the ground beneath them…

Anari’s unit was determined to save Justus, but felt far more vulnerable to any and all dangers without her to lead them personally. They didn’t ask why she chose to stay behind. They placed trust in her, far more than any of them openly admitted. So when she asked them to move ahead to the closest sound of fighting that they could, they rushed through the ruins with faith that the thrill of impending victory would distract any and all remaining forces that remained within the temple and slowly pushed outward to drive their people back.

The sound of blaster fire drew closer. They readied their rifles, double checked their shields were active, and then found a suitable overlook just above the location of interest. Anari was right. Taking aim at the mercenaries still ignorant of their presence, the unit opened fire. The heads of multiple enemies bounced forward before they dropped dead against the cover they relied on, but it wasn’t long before they became aware that they were flanked. Some soon returned fire at them, to which the unit ducked behind their superior cover and made ample use of higher ground.

The roar of the shuttle that dropped them off deafened the sounds of their fighting. Green blasts flew from the mounted laser cannons, sending rock and limp bodies flying. Those that remained sought better cover, or simply knew when to give up.

Shuttle Varactyl opened its doors and set itself down between Garza and what little of the men that attacked him remained. Anari’s unit began to move lower with haste, looking to meet up with the others and aid them in getting aboard.

The rearmost shuttle’s soldiers shifted anxiously in their seats as the pilot navigated them through the atmosphere. It weaved carefully above the trees, falling farther and farther away from the others, before peeling off towards the west. Its momentum gradually slowed until it stopped completely and hovered behind a mountain of trees and natural rock. Every soldier inside exchanged glances, then moved their gazes to a feminine, robed figure near the cockpit who kept still. They listened as the explosions in the distance went off and their comm channel blared with tactical information. Most of the dropships made their landing. Others were less fortunate.

“What are we doing?” One soldier found the nerve to ask. “We should be fighting too, not just sitting here. I thought Jedi were supposed to be brave! We’re just sitting back here like cowards— “

The robed figure turned to face him, so quickly in fact that he nearly jumped in surprise. Dark, strong eyes met his beneath the shadow of the hood, until finally she pulled it back and exposed her face for the first time. The soldiers sat in their seats a little taller, while those that stood straightened their backs as much as they were able.

“Cowards?”Anari repeated, eyes narrowing. “What about this decision—my decision—makes us cowards?” His lip quivered to respond, but she beat him to it. “We will aid our people another way.”

“And what way is that?” he asked with a huff. “If Master Taal knew about this—“

“If Master Taal saw more paths than a direct one, maybe a dozen more men and women would be alive right now.”

Silence fell over the soldier in question. They could all hear the reports of dropships not making the drop or being shot down in the process. The thought that it could have been them that died before even having a chance to face the enemy rose, but none spoke a word. The reports grew more intense and the sounds of fighting escalated. Only when she was certain that there was no more argument did Anari turn around to face the pilots ahead of her.

“It’s time. Press forward and keep behind as many mountains as you can. Cover is key.”

The pilots complied and returned power to the engines, keeping low and doing just as instructed. A wide berth was given to the enemy stronghold until they were nearing the rear. The engines dulled as they made their approach. Anari focused her attention on points of entry even as the loss of life spiked with each passing second. She spotted just what they needed: a cavern, likely an escape route for Okussus, and hopefully an entry point for their own traps to be set.

“There, a possible entry point,” Anari pointed towards the mouth of it, leading outwards into the open wilderness of Ashal. “Take us as low as you can and pull back until I contact you again.”

“Yes, sir.” The pilots began their descent, hovering just several feet from the grassy grounds below. The soldiers within the shuttle ended their final weapons check while Anari opened the door with her own hand. She jumped down and landed with a crouch before the ship landed, and once it did the other soldiers joined her; armed with rifles and pistols, their heavy weapons were few, but their grenades and personal shielding units just might even the odds if things go awry.

The shuttle took off again once the last soldier left and peeled off, maintaining discretion in both speed and height to keep to Anari’s strategy. Once it was safely away, the soldiers looked to the Jedi for leadership. She looked forward again to the mouth of the cavern and began to hustle, her men and women keeping pace, hoping to make the trouble of this flank mean something.

Okay I gave up. Let me know if you need changes.

It's okay for you to start without me, still chipping away at it. Shouldn't be long.

So does 'full' mean you guys don't take any more characters despite showing interest in the check?
Interested in either a pilot/soldier position or some type of fleet admiral role if available. Galactic Republic.

Do you have a time limit for posting?

Still interested in this idea!

Genkai is currently going through some real life struggles at this time, which would explain her absence up until now. I won't get into it all because it's her business, but she was talking about needing a break because she's become overwhelmed recently, and she's become very anxiety-ridden, which I've experienced in the past. I've tried reaching out to her in the meantime but I'm kinda just keeping this hand held for her to take when she's ready.

I was holding off on announcing anything because I thought a week might have been enough, but it appears she needs more time. We'll put the RP on hold until either I know more or she makes an announcement when she's ready to continue or not.
