Ooooh a possible solution!! Awesome! Definitely…
Jades fingers slightly rubbed the hilt of her saber as she held it at the ready. It had been a long time since she had meet up with Shikyo. She knew following him had been risky, but if he led her closer to the shard she could worry about coming up with a distraction later. She looked at the saber in his hand. He had sided with Locke, a side she had nearly chosen as well. But now, here could be a powerful ally, one that could truly help their smaller numbers, should she be able to convince him to come to Vexatus side. “If your brother was swallowed by a rancor, would you follow him into the belly?” She smirked.

“Rumor has it you were hot on the trail of a shard. Figured I’d let you lead me to it.” She smirked.
Shikyo looked at her. It made sense, and she didn’t show typical signs of covering
