Choruses of songbirds filled the air as Elliar embraced her mother and then her father. This would be the last time, for what was possibly going to be a very long time, that she would see them. Tears were welling up in her mothers eyes despite the smile that was spread across her face. Elliar returned the smile reassuringly to her mother, but didn’t open her mouth to say anything for fear that her stomach would betray her; the whole morning she had felt it twisting itself in knots as she had made her final preparations to leave.

Her father looked passive and uncaring for the most part as he stood next to his wife, but Elliar knew that he too was doing his best to contain his emotions. He, however, felt confident enough to speak. His smooth tenor voice swept over Elliar and helped to calm her nerves, “We’re very proud of you, Elli. Just make sure that you don’t do anything to change that while you’re away from home,” Elli laughed, that was typical of her father to say.

His pride was the only thing that really mattered to him in the long run; she could hear countless lectures that he had given to her on the great race that they came from. None of it ever really made sense to her because they had left their home planet of Hapes when she was only a year and a half old. When she had asked him about it once, he briefly said that it was because they didn’t agree with the isolationism that the Queen Mothers had kept them in for so long, so they had come to Krant to get away from it. Not that Elli minded being on Krant all that much; it was here that she had first learned about the Galatic Senate and come to realize what she was meant to do in her life.

Her father continued, “There are people out there in the galaxy that have no pride in who they are or where they come from and they are the kind of people that will do anything to get ahead. Just make sure that you don’t become one of those people. What is it that I taught you that you must always strive to be?”

Elli found her voice and answered her father, “Shakal,” she said simply. Her father nodded firmly, then he smiled and drew her into another tight hug. She smiled and buried her face into his shoulder and took a deep breath to ensure that she would remember exactly the way he smelled in this last meeting. “I won’t forget who I am, father,” she said when he stepped away from her.

”Lady Elliar, we’re ready to depart,” a man said after touching her lightly on the shoulder. Elli nodded and smiled once more at her parents. She took a deep calming breath and followed the man towards the Luxury ship that had been commissioned to take her to Tatooine, but she stopped short before she entered the shadow under the ship and turned back to take one last look at her home of Le’Roche. The noon sun warmed her skin and she smiled softly taking in the feeling. She took a pair of night-vision glasses out of one of her pockets and slipped them on over her eyes; she knew that the lights on the ship would be dim, and so she didn’t want to be caught blind while onboard or when she arrived on Tatooine.

Elli shook herself and stopped her day dreaming of her last moments on Krant. She looked back to her lap where she had a holobook about initiatives that the Galatic Senate had been working on lately. She rubbed one of her temples and nudged her night vision glasses a little bit, then she took them off completely and was immediately engulfed in a semi-darkness that she was unable to see in. A small sigh escaped her lips and she replaced the glasses on her face.

One of her dark brown curls fell into her face as she looked down at her holobook, so she brushed it aside with her fingers. She set aside the holobook and stood up to stretch her legs a little bit; she walked to the opposite side of the small room that she was in and stood looking at the holobook next to where she had been sitting, Am I ready for this? she thought to herself; after all, she was only nineteen years old and she had never before dealt with beings who knew much more than she did concerning politics. Back on Krant it had been easy for her to get elected to the Galatic Senate by the people who lived there. Most of the colonists there had no desire to take part in politics, but Elli had been studying it since she was a little girl.

The door behind her opened so she turned to see who had come to see her. It was the same man that had spoken to her back on Krant, “We’re about to arrive at Tatooine, Senator.”

She nodded, “Thank you,” the man bowed a little and then left the room. Elli walked back to her seat and waited for them to land. When they had done so, the same man came back and escorted her out of the ship. She smiled with relief when she saw that it was still daytime here on Tatooine and she slipped the glasses off of her face and stored them in her pocket.

A warm gust of wind caressed her skin and blew her dark curls off of her shoulders. Her dress clung to her body as the wind flowed across her body, and she looked around at the desolate looking desert landscape around her; certainly a change from the forests and seas on Krant, but she would get used to it with time. She had to get used to it, this was her new home for a little while, and she wasn’t about to let her residence detract from the job that she had come to take care of.

NPC permission was granted.

Almania Senator Darcia Ronnad flanked by a group of Alliance Security guards walked towards the shuttle. The Hapan woman had stepped out of the shuttle and took a look around, her eyes squinting slightly to the massive sunlight. Darcia smiled gently at the fresh senator and called up to the woman who was still on the steps of the landing platform.

"Elliar, Krant Senator, right?" the black haired woman smiled, her thick accent not interrupting her speech pattern. "Welcome to Tatooine. Home of the Galactic Alliance." Garcia gestured her hands towards the desert sands of Tatooine, while signalling the some of the droids to take the woman's belongings.

Elliar looked down at the black haired woman and took yet another deep steadying breath, This is it, she thought to herself as she smiled back at the woman and made her way down the stairs of the landing platform.

She extended her hand in greeting to the woman as she stepped onto the ground, "Thank you for the welcome, uh.." she looked a little unsure as she trailed off, and wanted to hit herself in the head, she was making herself look like an idiot in front of the first important person that she met here. "Forgive me, I don't know your name," she said, hoping to remedy her idiotic first statement.

"Forgive me, I don't know your name." the Hapan woman said apologetically.

Darcia smiled and shook her hand saying, "Senator Ronnad of Almania. The droids will carry your things." She said kindly while flicking her fingers towards the shuttle. Three droids marched past them and disappeared to collect the Hapan's belongings. "You can call me Darcia."

Darcia turned and began to walk towards the senators' wing of suites. Darcia recalled her first steps on the desert planet, but that was during the days of the rebellion against the Galactic Empire.

The black haired woman looked around, her hand shielding her eyes from the three suns of Tatooine. "The Senate is meeting in three days to discuss the trial of Brote Heckler. It is possible you are placed on a committee that will report directly to the Chief of State and the Senate itself about the proceedings of the trial." Darcia looked at the Hapan woman calmly, "The Senate is testing your ability to transfer quickly. Just hope no Umbarans are assigned to the commission as well..." She sighed as they entered the long hall ways of the Senators' Wing.

"You can call me Darcia," the Senator said and then turned and began to walk.

Elli walked beside Darcia, "It is a pleasure to meet you, Senator," she said and then listened as the woman continued to speak. Elli tried to hide her shock and excitement as the woman talked of how she might be getting placed on a committee right away. That meant that she would be known, at least a little bit, right off. That was exactly what she was hoping for. She knew that if she was going to go anywhere in the Galatic Senate, she would need to make a strong impression as soon as she could.

"The Senate is testing your ability to transfer quickly. Just hope no Umbarans are assigned to the commission as well..." the woman said with a sigh and then entered the building.

Elliar paused a moment before entering and slipped on her night-vision glasses, then followed Darcia again, "I believe that I will be able to handle the tranfer well," she said hoping she didn't sound too confident, "But I'm afraid I don't know much about Umbarans. I suppose I'll just have to learn if I am to work along side some of them."

"I believe that I will be able to handle the tranfer well," Elliar responded, "But I'm afraid I don't know much about Umbarans. I suppose I'll just have to learn if I am to work along side some of them."

Darcia couldn't help but laugh, "Your optimistic outlook is more than welcome. Especially in these dark times, young one." Darcia grinned and said, "I would not be surprised if the Umbarans learn more about you than you do of them." Darcia stopped in her tracks, looking around carefully, her thick accent picking up again, "Umbarans are tall, thin creatures. They have the ability to read one's mind, but they have the darkest of secrets and humor. Their leader recently died on Corellia, hours ago. This will no doubt stir the Senate for a motion of war..." her voice trailed off, "Elliar, never call an Umbaran a fool or your enemy. Treat them with respect, yet keep your constant guard. Both politicially and mentally." Darcia smiled and they continued towards the young woman's quarters, Darcia ready to answer any questions she may bare.

"Umbarans are tall, thin creatures. They have the ability to read one's mind, but they have the darkest of secrets and humor. Their leader recently died on Corellia, hours ago. This will no doubt stir the Senate for a motion of war..." the woman said trailing off, "Elliar, never call an Umbaran a fool or your enemy. Treat them with respect, yet keep your constant guard. Both politicially and mentally."

Elli listened in silence to what Darcia said, but inside she was storing all this information away and slowly picking apart and analyzing each piece of it. She had known that tensions had been high recently and that war was a definite possiblity, but she had not thought that it would come so soon. And the information that Darcia gave her about the Umbarans was something she would be sure to keep in mind constantly if she was to work with some of them. Never call them a fool, she thought to herself, They'll learn not to call me a fool either before too long.

"I'll keep your words in mind, Darcia, thank you for the advice," she said nodding to the woman, "Now to what you said about war. You mentioned that the Umbaran leader died a few hours ago, but I can't see why the leader's death would spark a desire to go to war unless they were killed. Who is it that the Senate is planning on declaring war against for the death of the Umbaran leader?"

Who is it that the Senate is planning on declaring war against for the death of the Umbaran leader?"

Darcia's face grew grave, her eyes scanning the room. "The Umbaran woman, Sly Est, died of internal damage. It is presumed she was killed because of the mental contact she was involved with Prime Unu Flint of the Killik. It is rumored he wishes to recreate the 'Infinite Empire'." Darcia was sure the woman heard of it. Thousands of years ago the Rakattan people ruled the galaxy with over a trillian slaves. It was before the Galactic Republic. "Now with this death and rumors of the Killik disobeying the demilitazation, the Senate will be geared for war. Especially with Umbarans pushing for it."

Darcia smiled softly, "Welcome again, to politics."

The 'Infinite Empire'? Elli was shocked at the idea of it. She hadn't expected anything this big happening in her first year in the Senate, but now that it was happening, she would just have to go with the flow of things.

The woman smiled softly, "Welcome again, to politics."

Elli laughed at the remark. "Tell me, Darcia, are you for declaring war?" she asked as they walked. For now Elli felt that she could trust what Darcia told her, so knowing what her take on the situation was would be helpfully to her until Elli got her footing here in the political world. She decided that she would definitely have to start reading all that she could about this Prime Unu Flint if she was to make a good decision on where she stood on this issue.

"Tell me, Darcia, are you for declaring war?" the Hapan woman asked. Darcia took a moment to think and attempted a smile in the response. She wasn't sure at this moment, she was still waiting for a commission to be inform to assess the situation.

"I am predicting that war will be inevitable, however, with that said... Yes I would vote for war. You see, The Killiks have been savagely going around and conquering planets and making the people 'joiners'. The Inner Rim of the Galaxy was at risk, you never know where they would strike next." She sighed, "We have received millions upon millions of cries for help, but the Senate did not have accurate intelligence." She cursed the Intelligence Chief, "Any ways, I would vote for war in order to save billions of life from the Killik conquest."

Darcia grinned, "With Admiral Ackbar and General Anzatti, victory is at hand."

"War is just one of those many necessary evils in life. I'll have to do some research into what's going on within the Senate to see where I stand on this issue, more than likely I will also be for this war," she said calmly.

Darcia grinned, "With Admiral Ackbar and General Anzatti, victory is at hand."

Elliar looked at her sideways, "So confident in their abilities? For our sake if we go to war I hope that your confidence is not simply that. This Prime Unu Flint is certainly no fool when it comes to matters of military, but I'm sure neither are our military leaders. I should like to meet the General and Admiral sometime; I've always had a fascination with the military, and perhaps if I get to know more about it I'll be better suited to do my job in the Senate," she said with a smile playing at the corners of her lips. She could feel herself beginning to relax finally as they walked towards her quarters.

Darcia nodded, "My confidence is well placed, I assure you. Feel free to use the Senate Archives to locate information on the issue. I am staying in Room 116, you may stop by anytime. And General Anzatti will arrive on Tatooine within a week or so, he had some campaigns to finish and bases to prepare." She sighed, "Here we are. The droids will arrive shortly with your belongings. Also, a protocol droid will be assigned to you and he will keep you updated on the senate proceedings. They have special transmitters that keep them up on selected topics."

Elli nodded, "I'll be sure to get in contact with the General at some point while he is here," she said, then smiled at the woman, "Thank you very much for greeting me, Darcia, if I have any questions with anything that I can not figure out on my own I will be sure to stop by your room. Oh, and you mentioned that I might be getting an assignment to cover Brote Heckler's trial, will I be finding that out sometime soon, or within the next few days?" she asked as she stepped closer to the door.

"Oh, and you mentioned that I might be getting an assignment to cover Brote Heckler's trial, will I be finding that out sometime soon, or within the next few days?" she asked as she stepped closer to the door.

Darcia nodded kindly, "The Senate has yet to vote on the committee, but I have a feeling you will be elected quite quickly. When the Bothan Judge leaves, you will either follow shortly after or possibly on the same shuttle." She looked at the Hapan woman apologetically. Feyla wasn't exactly the man you wanted to fly with, "Don't worry deary, if elected on the commission, you'll receive a notice in the morning or by mid afternoon."
