As the Freighter pulled into the spaceport of Annaj, the Capital of Terra, Julian Noble, who was sleeping, awoke, and left the ship without being detected.

He then realized he had no purpose. His life was his business, and now that he was unemployed, he was also a loser. And a lonely one at that.

Without friends, family, or anyone to support him, he realized this may actually open the door to new business opportunitys. He knew the Agency only had a prescence on the larger population centres, which would probably work to his advantage.

So he headed for a local pub, where he became drunk beyond all conciousness.

Julian woke up with a rather ugly headache, and a fatigue to match. Next to him was a woman, most probably a seedy whore. he couldn't remember. He quickly got up and dressed, then snuck out like he had the freighter, avoiding all 3 tabs simultaneously.

He then made the decision to find someone who might have need of a hitman.

So, he naturally headed for the Palace.

Julian Noble finally arrived at the palace and found two guards, both of green skin.

"Whatz you wantz?", asked one rather rudely.

"I must speak to someone of importance... basically, anyone but you."

"Well, ya' can't just go and talk to da' prezident wiffout an ap-.. app-.. meetin'-time."

"Well I don't need to talk to the president, you stupid vermin. I just want to speak to someone who would be capable of hiring a... facilitator of fatalities."

"A Whut?"

"An assassin ya' pest! Someone who would hire and harbour a hitman!"

"Oh... so you'z a wussy-boy? Too 'fraid to jes' up and kill 'em? Gotta' be all snikky and junk?"

The aptly-named 'facilitator of fatalities' sighed in exasperation.

"Listen, I don't have time to discuss the moral issues of my occupation. Could you PLEASE let me talk to someone I could have an intelligent conversation with?!"

"Well, ya' don gotta' yell, ya pansy. Jus' ask, snikky-boy."

With that the green-skinned being turned and pushed a button, which opened a large bulkhead, which then closed after the human.

Julian Noble, halfway to the reception desk, felt a vibration in his pocket.

He pulled out a device, with a small screen. He had recieved a message.

After reading emptying his mailbox, and promptly left the building. It was high-time he got a job that wouldn't get him killed by a seedy bounty hunter, especially considering that he had failed twice now; Kamino and Nal Hutta.

Imperial Intelligence, perhaps?

The hitman sighed. Not only was the job canceled, but the Alliance, in its craftiness, had figured his location. Running would serve no purpose, and hiding wouldn't protect him for long.

So, he shuffled along the busy streets, until he found himself in the city square.

On a massive screen, the news was displayed, and it showed at Premier Tarpin, leader of the planet and some other backwater planet, was headed heere, after a quick stop at the aforementioned 'backwater' Shit-bucket of a world.

Something clicked in his head.

Tarpin. He had heard the name before.

Tarpin.

Tarpin!

Julian ran back to the palace, in the hopes that he might beat the alliance's arrival and seak refuge.

Julian could hear the people cheering behind him, as he reached the palace. It had taken him much longer than expected, but he had arrived, and this time, the Green Guards simply let him through.

Tarpin walked into the Throne Room, and beheld his magnificent seat, before he quickly tryed it out.

He couldn't feel anything, but it supported his back, while allowing him to still see what was going on, so even for him it was comfortable.

" Hang on, sir."

The receptionist spoke into her earpice, then gained an attitude that seemed to apologize for her blatant rudeness.

" P-please sir... that elevator... r-r-right there..."

She gestured toward a small room, flanked by to others, that appeared to be wells that led to an elevator. The one mentioned was obviously more elegant and expensive than the other two.


"My lord, there is a... Julian Noble, to see you."

"I've not heard that name in a good while... send him up."

"Yes, your excellency."

Julian emerged in the Throne room, and a large metal contraption lay seated in a chair that was more regal and grand than the small box he had come up in.

"Tarpin! Its been a lifetime!"


"A lifetime too long, Mr. Noble. I was told you had pressing matters to attend to?"


"Yes. The alliance is after me, because of my.. profession. They are on their way here, at this moment.


".... This is disturbing news. If they attempt to abduct you, my friend, they will fail. And if they attempt, they will find themselves in a war. "


"Are you really that powerful, Tarpin? A war with the Alliance would be costly, and I wouldn't think with two planets anyone would be able to survive the price."


"I have a few friends, Mr. Noble. Lance Jerak is a personal friend, and he is a Marshal in the Republic of Nespis. I'm quite familiar with Petyr Baelish, and though he probably would remain neutral, I'm sure we could at least gain support from him.

But that is not important now. I have room prepared, for friends who stop in at a moment, and I will send some of my best to make sure nothing ailes you."


"Thank you, my friend. I will see you tomorrow."

"Chief Miercole."

Tarpin greeted the small furry man, who gave a sort of grunt in return.

"I am putting you in charge of the planetary defenses. From this moment on, you take orders from, and give them to everyone else, with my permission. Unless under extreme circumstances, contact me before you do anything major. Understand?"

"It is an honour, Lord. What would you have me do now?"

"Set up a command in the Spaceport, and make sure no jedi get through. If you find any, send them to me, under extreme gaurd. Take every precaution possible, and equip the esort with... er... what are they... those strange little things... the negate the force and what-not..."

"Yes, milord. I understand."

"Good. I want the planet on lock-down until our friend Julian works out a deal with the Galactic Alliance.

"Yes, Lord. Oh, yes, quite a few recruits have joined us this past quarter."

"How many?"

"3,000 Humans. They've been fully equipped, and with the 50 Sanyassans we recruited, we should be able to stand up to these Alliance pigs until we can be reinforced."

"Excellent. Though I hope this entire incident can simply blow over without anyone dieing."

"Well... alright then. I should go. Might I have your permission to organize a parade? It might increase recruitment."

"Yes. Before you go, send the Dragon Riders into the Palace Garage. I have an idea for them."

"Yes, my liege."

Julian strutted into the huge Throne room with the over-confident stride he had picked up and most probably shouldn't have, especially considering he had been expecting an Alliance shuttle to grab him by the ear and throw him in jail any day soon.

The well-lit room echoed as his feet continued to collide with the ground, propelling him ever-closer to the gargantuan throne, atop which, as he expected, Tarpin was seated.

" Hello Mr. Noble! How are things? " He shouted from the top.

" Good, I suppose, if you don't count the fact that I'm going insane with anxiety and I haven't slept in a month. " He replied, just as loud if more so.

" Well, is there something you have need of that I can provide? " , the cyborg asked with a rather-pompous chuckle.

" Erm... well... there is a, uh.... a little something... "

" Come on, spit it out. "

" I would like to join the Terran Army, sir. "

The half-robotic figure tried as hard as he could to make his face look incredulous. His mechanical face did not comply with this demand.

" Well... why, may I ask? "

" I've never done anything worthwile in my life, Tarpin. I grew up as a mean little bastard, then I became an assassin, and now, 38 years later, here I am, an empty shell of a man without a friend in the galaxy and wanted by the Galactic Alliance, or whatever it is they're calling themselves this week. "

" You do know that I cannot allow you to join as anything more than a Corporal- "

" I want to fight, damnit! You've created something worth fighting and, if need be, dieing for, and my life has never been worth more than half a credit! Please Tarpin- "

" Though I object, I will not deny you this honour. Go to Complex 3-9 on the 8th floor and tell them your wish, to be carried out by direct order of myself. "

" I am eternally grateful, Lord. "

And he turned and left, with the same style and pace he had when he entered the room.


3 hours later he was sent to boot camp with 200 other various humans, ewoks, and aliens who had the same hopes and dreams of glory as he did.
