The Shattered World, Dentavii
“Jeric!” called out Shi Long. The Primarch was position atop some of the ruins along side the Oracle’s Apprentice. Jeric looked towards the ruins, him and Maelous had just returned after looking for a Shard on one of the many asteroids. Finishing up his conversation with Maelous, the former noble made his way over to where he was being summoned.
“Shi,” the Sith said with a slight nod.
“Jeric, I have a mission for you. We just learned your former apprentice, Sebz Janren, is closing in on shard.”
“Where?!” Jeric’s modulated voice almost sounded angry.
“He was sent, possibly with a few commando escorts, to a small rock towards the inner edge of the asteroid field,” Shi said expecting a response from the Battlelord.
Instead the Sith looked at his wrist comlink, tapping the display a few times. The sound of the Aurora’s engines roared to life. Jeric looked at Shi and nodded, the Sith knew what needed to be done.
Theta-Class T-2c shuttle Aurora
Dentavii Asteroid Field
Jeric sat in the pilot seat of the Aurora, scanning the vast asteroid field. Reaching out with the force Jeric could sense the presence of Sebz Janren. The suspected location of his former apprentice was accurate and they were less than a few minutes out.
“Milord, we are closing in on the coordinates.”
Jeric knew Sebz would ultimately sense the Sith Battlelord as the shuttle turned swiftly and the small rock came into view. Jeric’s priority was to secure the shard for Lord Vexatus, either by finding it first or taking it from his former apprentice. In the process if he could convince Sebz to see the truth then that would be better than using force. Jeric looked up seeing the ground of the asteroid through the shuttle’s viewport.
“Twenty seconds till landing milord,” Jeric’s pilot said as he began multitasking between the shuttles joystick and control panels.
Jeric got up and made his way to the rear hold. The Sith activated the ramp switch with a simple thought. The ramp locked open a mere second before the shuttle touch down onto the rocky surface. With long, prideful strides the former noble exited the shuttle and took a look around the asteroid. To his left he sense a few human lifeforms, possible Sebz’s commando escorts. At his eleven o’clock Jeric could sense his former apprentice and just to the right at his two o’clock was presence he was looking for, the shard.
