Yes the song is the Imperial March Song, but you gotta love entrances

Arlyn's shuttle from the massive battle cruiser shot from the red skies of the sandy planet of Geonosis. The Geonosians had gathered, those that could, to give the Ang de Geo a special welcome. It had been over two months since she last visited and they were more than happy to welcome her to their planet once more.

Alatáriël Pallanén, the Royal Lady of Geonosis, shuttle had landed. The Geonosians stood in formation as the Minas Morgul lords walked out from the spire and stood in a V-shape line, waiting for the Lady to emerge. The doors hissed with steam, as the music began to play. The Royal music of the Geonosians dedicated to the most powerful figures in their soceity.

Alatáriël emerged at the excitement of the music flanked by Ryan Davad and the Security Captain Kriekas; whom was also a Geonosian. Their footsteps echoed in the massive meeting room. The Geonosians clicked in their language and turned to face the Ang with a salute. Arlyn looked over her Geonosians and paused.

She saluted in tradition as the Geonosians finished the salute and their hands clicked to their sides. Alatáriël began to walk again with the powerful music. She approached the Lords of Minas Morgul. They bowed in unison before the Lady, a powerful display of loyalty. The Black Knights turned on their heels at once and stode behind their leader.

Toogle the Higher stood in the doorway he was flanked by two guards. A strange looking droid and a loyal Geonosian bodyguard. Toggle and his guards bowed before the Lady and the guards left them at once. Toogle entered the Lady's stride as they made their way into the Grand Spire.

Alatáriël Pallanén, the crowned ruler of Geonosis, strolled into her Royal Spire as the music disappeared. The table had been set for a political meeting for the Territory of the Lady. Alliance officials were present as well, but Arlyn was only attending as a guest of the people of Geonosis.

Her eyes scanned each individual. None of them held a real significance, but they were here for a reason. What is was, Arlyn had yet to find out. She took her seat at the head of the table. The nine Black Knights stood around the room in an eerie formation, their heads staring forward.

Toogle took his seat and looked at the data infront of him and began to speak in his Geonosian language, "Ang de Geo, we have come to a decision." Arlyn hadn't spoken a word since she arrived on the planet and she continued that. She stared into the eyes of the Geonosian leader and waited for him to continue. "We have reached a decision regarding our future in the Alliance."

Arlyn flashed her eyes towards Ryan. He knew something she didn't. Her eyes returned to the Archduke of Geonosis. His eyes looked tired and depressed. Arlyn knew a decision might be forced upon her, she would have to chose between the Geonosians and the Galactic Alliance. And that was a decision she was not ready to make.

The moment lasted for almost an eternity, she waited for his words to return, yet he continued his pause. The other members in the room, Arlyn soon recognized them as planetary leaders that once had joined the brunette thanagarian and her conquest in business. Arlyn's face remained emotionless as the Geonosian's mouth opened.

"In light of recent events the Geonosian people support your Chief of Security position. We have never been a religious people, but we believe you have saved us from a harsh and utter defeat...." his voice trail off reflecting on emotion and change was new for him, "We have decided to remain with the Galactic Alliance. We are, however, wishing to have a more active part in the industries of the faction."

Arlyn breathed more deeply her peaceful glance scanned the room. Her words came swift and brought about loyalty among the leaders like none before, "A new tide has come in this galaxy. New species creep from the Unknown Regions. The Galactic Empire is armed for war, the Galactic Alliance also well equipped. Worlds will burn to ashes. People will be slaughtered. Business will soar in profits while others diminish." She rose to her feet, causing a stir among the planetary leaders, "But our loyalty to the Galactic Alliance must not be shaken in these times. The Geonosians are builders, warriors, thinkers, and masters of their domain. When our enemies come, we shall show them no mercy." She looked to the other planetary leaders, "And that is not just Geonosis. Other worlds will be equally as ready to receive the enemy."

The Minas head Knight stepped forward, his icy breathe sending chills to everyone in the room, "If the enemy dares to land, their blood shall fill our Castle. Our swift resistance will be like none this galaxy has seen. Weapons of unimagible design shall be created. Superlasers of Palpatine would be a fraction of the power we will wield."

The Lady of Geonosis grinned, "And this is only the beginning. The Imperial scum, when the day comes, will burn at our feet." Her voice changed notes, as she sat back in her seat. The other members looked around, nodding to each other while taking their own seats. "The matters of now, is time and production. We need to acquire the tools we need, but quickly. The Empire shall come swiftly and their personal attacks against me, names this planet and others as targets."

The Minas Morgul Knight spoke again, "They will not dare attack one of your planets. Lady! That is suicide!"

The Lady of Geonosis looked and meet his black hood with determination, "Their pain shall be burned into their souls forever, Black Knight." Her lips curled, "Now. Let us prepare for the financial future of this defense."

The brunette thanagarian walked away from the meeting after personally shaking each individuals' hand. The Lady of Geonosis sped down the hallway, ignoring the Naval Ambassador walking after her. "Alatáriël!" he called to her, but she continued to ignore him. He attempted to match her speed, but she turned and threw him against the wall. Her eyes locked onto his and she questioned, "What is wrong with you?"

"Arlyn, what's wrong?" Ryan's confused glance was enough for her to release him. Her hand reached for her forehead as her eyes betrayed the hurt feelings. "You are what is wrong!" she exclaimed, "Ever since the Mon Calamari sunset, you just stand behind me. You don't approach me. You don't kiss me. You don't love me."

Ryan looked away as his eyes fell to the ground. Arlyn's hand fell to his sides as she moved into him. "You are making us drift." she whispered into his neck. He sighed and departed from her. His shoulders looked like they were carrying a burden he could no longer handle and in order to lighten that load, Arlyn would be released. She looked at his back and said, "Good bye, Ryan."

And she walked out of the Spire, but in reality, she walked out of their relationship. She gazed at the sunset of Geonosis and realized that the sunset on Mon Calamari would be the last romantic experience she would share with another. She was far more effective to the galaxy as a single and unattached individual.

When she re-entered the Spire, Ryan was gone.

Rambaldi had predicted that the Angel of Leviathon would come to during the Age of Destruction. During the Third Galactic Civil War, she would rise above men of all species and met with an equal woman of power. This woman in opposition would lose to utter despair. And the Angel of Leviathon would bring forth unforeseen power. His prophecy, found with an ancient drawing of Alatáriël and her DNA sequence, was this:

"This woman here depicted will possess unseen marks. Signs that she will be the one to bring forth my works. Bind them with fury. A burning anger, unless prevented. At vulgar cost, this woman will render the greatest power unto utter desolation. This woman, without pretense, will have had her effect, never having seen the beauty of my sky behind Mt. Verniaquex. Perhaps a single glance would have quelled her fire."

The brunette Thanagarian sat in the Geonosian Spire that was built especially for her, in candle light like the ancients. She read Rambaldi's Journal, actually turning pages. It was in writing that Rambaldi trusted his work, versus data. She had captured the Sword of the Angel of Leviathon, yet had no idea how to use it. Although the thanagarian was lethal with swords and equivalent melee weapons, she remembered the words of the old man from Corellia. "It is a key, O Angel! It unlocks some of the greatest treasures in the galaxy!"

Alatáriël rose to her feet, collecting the sword in her hands. The cool metal was surprising lighter than she had first wielded the weapon. Perhaps now that her body was mended, she was stronger than the first time. She articulated a Thanagarian blade move and swung it in the air. She played with the sword for several minutes, it being more of a collectable than a weapon.

She placed the sword back against the wall, examining it from afar and noticed she remembering seeing the sword on one of the pages. She went back to the journal, carefully flipping the page when she noticed what it was. The Sword was not a weapon, but a key like the architect from Corellia had said, it unlocks the treasure. But, where's the lock? Where is this treasure?

Arlyn thought for a moment when she realized she had forgotten about the box aboard the Independence II. Although there was no keyhole, it did have other documents that might provide useful information. She picked up her communication device and called for the most loyal of Geonosians, Kriekas.

Kriekas was perhaps, the Ang de Geo's favorite Geonosian. He had served her from the beginning and instead of being a subject to the throne of Geonosis, he was becoming a close friend. She took the box from his hand, he turned to leave, but Arlyn called to him.

"Kriekas. Wait a moment." she turned to set the box on the counter and returned her glance to the Geonosian who stood in a salute. She chuckled and asked him to return to an eased position. "I just wanted to say you mean a lot to me. You have been my closet friend in the past few months. And I would trade you for no one."

The Geonosian looked at her abit surprised but nodded and clicked in his language, "It is an honor and privilage to serve as your bodyguard and Security Chief." Arlyn smiled softly and thanked him again before he left. She closed and locked the door, returning to the box with anticipation.

She brought the box to the table to where the rest of Rambaldi's artifacts remained. Her hand reached to open, but paused. This could change everything... She ignored that, seeing as Ryan was being dismissed from within her mind, and she opened the box.

Instantly the sword whined and began to shake from its place on the wall. Arlyn jumped to grab it, but the hilt activated some sort of holographic display.



Arlyn gasped something clicked in her memory. She knew where this was and exactly where she needed to be. The holographic display ended and the box began to beep. A countdown had started. She took out her communication device, packing the Rambaldi artifacts. The Mon Calamari answered and Arlyn said, "Commodore, prep the Independence II. We leave in the next hour." And with that, she clicked off the device and finished packing her things. She had very little time, very little time indeed.
