Tatooine, his once boyhood home on the outskirts of the jungland wastelands was as he remembered a sandy beauty that reminded him of this father's Anzat but the isolation was quite heavy on his soul as he stood peering into the distance where twin suns blazed across the bare skies. The sadness that had brough him several months to live in the abandoned home of his former life was still raw, even in the many years it had occurred after setting out in his youth from his father's second home. He snorted out of his nose, slightly different shape to most humans but so easily overlooked, turning back to the underground house he grabbed up his black cloak wrapping it secure about his throat and graceful from years of life stepped free once more into the warm sand dune horizon. The obsidian colored boots dragged through the deep plains carrying the strange being forward. He had no speeder or any vehicle to speak of but it hardly bothered him to walk to every on this beautiful yet miserable planet. Perhaps it was a bit of cockiness that he had no concern for Raiders or other dangerous beings, being one of those dangerous individuals. Tarin's only thoughts were on two things solely, his destination to one of the small settlements that littered the surface in search for gear and maybe a job and the second was food. The human side of himself craved for the common diet while a darker part, the Anzat side desired the substance of life to draw essence from others. Distracted by his motives that he didn't notice the Tusken raiders that were watching him or did he? Their 'soup' was not even worthy to be taken even in desperate times but if they wished a battle he was willing to give it, ne nearly chuckled at the thought they could face one as old as him in mortal combat. He counted only a few maybe three at the most and a beast they rode, 'hmm that would make a good vehicle' he thought as he took cautious steps. Tarin halted as a horrible howl of challenge rose up in the air, the warrior rushed him in an ambush but the half Anzat was ready as the staff rushed down towards his head. He grabbed it before it strikes, giving a firm kick to the chest taking it right out of the raider's grasp. The second raider that had dismounted previously, took a vicious hit to the head throwing it completely in surpise. He dodged the blast from the recovering Tusken to get a small nick on the shoulder, in a roar he attacked bring the blade gaderffii down. He kicked the lifeless body, growling under his breath now he was exhausted and hunger! He continued to beat the body into the sandy earth until his firey rage had subsided, crystal blue orbs peering up at the hairy beast, time to make an escape before the other Raiders came and get his wound looked at securing the staff on his back beneath his cloak. He grabbed the straps about the Bantha and leaped up on the saddle that had been made by the Raiders, yes this was going to be a useful tool and maybe a good trading item. Off he when from the Tusken terrorities towards the closest medical
faculty and the settlement original in mind.

Travel in this fashion was much faster but the dull ache from the blaster rifle wound was begin to weight on the dark warrior that was Tarin. But as a warrior he refused to omit the damage was even affect him but in his willed ignorance it was. The effect of the twin suns had caused it to fester abit and delicate lifefluid was dripping free against the make-shift bandage, both Anzat and human thirst were not helping manners as the beast mount carried him across the desert plain. Slowly he drifted forward on the back, nearly burying his pallid face into the mane before the unconsciness overtook him completely. His tall lean yet powerful frame rolled over the side to the sand below. Luck for him it was only silken sand that catch him. The Tusken's mount did not go far but lurked closely by sniffing at the still male's back in mere curiosty then drifted abit as it lost interest. Sleep had taken down the powerful hybrid, he dreamed of distant happy times and the pleasent faces of his long ago disappeared parents.

The bantha moved his carefully pace back to the rider who had claimed him from his Tusken owner, a long snake-like tongue wipe across the pallid face of Tarin in an attempt to rouse him from his exhausted slumber. The wet surface was a shock that pulled him from a memory of sandy happiness, falling towards the light his delicate lids slowly rising. He groaned at the ache through his jolts which sounded gruff from his parched throat " I'm awake..I'm awake" He wrapped his tired hand across his damp cheek and chin while his other raised up toward the horned beast of burden patting it reasuringly "You like me or something hmm?...well I don't have anything to eat see.." He opened his cloak to show the bantha then sink back down with a sigh "well my friend seems we are lost....do you have any ideas?..." He would seem quite strange if anyone came back talking to a beast but it was prehaps the most intelligent being he had encountered in his long rest from his professions and maybe one of the first. The beast just sort of stared at him throught sunken sockets "hmm thoughts.."Tarin carefully pulled himself into a standing position that was wobby but he managed thinking it was best to walk with his mount which walked beside him like an equal, hand on its massive side.
