From his viewports, Nubis could see the purple hue of the Dantooine System. The nebulea surrounding the planet in a blanket of color, the various patches of ship debris and asteroids, and even the small bustle of freighter traffic all made Dantooine one of the most unique places in the galaxy. Nubis eased the controls and tapped a few keyes. The Imperium Et Ordo began its descent toward the surface of the plains planet.

As the ship broke the lower cloud layer, Nubis immeadiately recognized a series of ruins and beyond them, his rather modest home. The house Nubis lived in was nestled into a small ring of rolling hills near the north eastern corner of the main continent - a day or so from the nearest transportation outpost. There were a few trees scattered around the home as well as a handful of moisture evaportators dotted along the hills. The grass on the plains was tall and would move like waves of an ocean as the wind blew through them. In all aspects, it was a beautiful place to settle.

The Imperium Et Ordo plopped down onto a stretch of flattened earth near the home and began to run through its shut down sequence. Nubis walked down the ramp in full armor, as was usual with him, and a smaller compliment of weaponry. He may have been a "feared" bounty hunter in some parts, but this was home and even the most ruthless of fighters could respect the sanctity of a man's home.

Days had come and gone as the conflict on the Dantooine plains raged on. The Empire was making huge leaps across the terrain, pushing back their enemy. In the end, Nubis decided, thw winner was sure to be the Galactic Empire. Which was just fine in Nubis' mind. He had always had a sort of pull towards the Empire. Something about it seemed to draw his attention. Perhaps it was its call for justice and order throughout the galaxy. At any rate, Nubis was happy that he was home and away from work for the moment.

Ironically, just as he thought about it, his datapad, now sitting on a table in the living room, chimed in. With a sigh of exasperation, Nubis stood up from his rather comfortable chair and crossed to the table where the datapad was still ringing. Clicking a few buttons on the side, Nubis gazed into the viewscreen, "Attention Nubis Serin. Urgent information reguarding a new employment opportunity has been uploaded to your personal datapad. It would do you well to review this information and at your earliest conviencence, contact us with your decision."

Interesting, Nubis thought as he placed the datapad back down onto the tabletop surface. He took a few steps away from the table towards one of the many windows lining one wall of the room. After a short pause, Nubis hurriedly went back for the datapad, picked it up, and searched for the uploaded information.

Reading the many pages of legalities and pomp and circumstance took a few hours. Nubis rubbed his eyes, let out a yawn, and stood up from his reading chair. Interesting indeed, he thought.

It would appear that the Death Squad took a fancy to his work in the past and were contacting him in the hope that he may join their cause. If anything, the prospective pay he would earn was enough to garner some interest in the deal and Nubis quickly found himself liking it more and more.

The sun was shining through the window blinds of the Serin home. Nubis lay on his couch, eyes closed, and thinking about the past. He had spent most of his life in the service of sloshed crime lords and dirty spice traders. There had been times when Nubis was at the top of the bounty hunting world. Today, in this modern era potmarked by the ongoing war, he was being crowded out of use.

Nubis sighed as he slowly got up from the couch. The warmth of the sun made his face feel a bit heated. He wiped the few beads of sweat on his forehead, "What do I do now?"

On his table, Nubis found his datapad. He picked it up and clicked it on. The small machined hummed to life and the various lights and buttons flickered on. The main screen materialized. "Welcome, Nubis Serin, to the Galactic HoloNet," the small viewscreen read.

"Now to put in an application," Nubis said quietly to himself.

The shuttle Tyderian landed outside the home and Andorra Sila knocked on Nubis Serin's front door.

From inside his home, Nubis could barely hear the massive Lambda-class shuttle making its landing outside. He placed his datapad back down on the table and walked over to the window overlooking the land in front of the home. A lanky Twi'lek made her way down the boarding ramp and knocked on Nubis' door.

Nubis sighed a little inside, not knowing the reason for the visit. He made quick for his equipment locker and buckled on his weapons belt, making sure to check that his blaster was there. "What can I do for ya," he called through the door.

Just as Nubis had expected the blue Twi'lek to answer from beyond the door, his datapad chimed to life. Nubis took a look at the door and then a quick glance out the window. The Twi'lek was now surveying the surroundings and ordering her escort to form a loose perimeter. Perhaps she hadn't heard Nubis shouting from inside.

Nubis walked sharply over to the table and picked up the still-ringing datapad. He keyed in a few buttons and read the newly delivered message. It read"

"To whom it may concern,
It would behoove you, the recipient of this message, reply to the given contact."

Nubis had to cut the message short: there came another knock at the door, this one louder.

Andorra waited patiently outside, several droids had made a perimeter. One of her astrometric droids began to enter the home's open port.

"Excuse Mr. Serin...We must talk in person...."

She knocked again, "It's about a job. "

Andorra waited for the door to be open and continued to look around.

Nubis waited for a moment then keyed in a few numbers on the door terminal. Before he hit the last button, he clicked his datapad into his chest armor, placed his hand over his holster, and took a deep breath.

A job. Yeah, right, he thought to himself sarcastically.

He pressed the last button causing the door to hiss open revealing the thin Twi'lek waiting for him. "Hello, lovely," Nubis let out. "So what's this about a job?"

Andorra smiled as two snipers were locked on. She hated ex bounty hunters, especially those with their hands over their blasters. She had no intention of killing him, yet at least. She was here to offer him a job inside of Lambda.

"Lambda is offering a job" she saw him eye the position of the sniping droids

Andorra smiled and said, "They will not fire unless I am attack, I promise you."

Andorra waited and then said, "Admiral Audacious would like to meet with you...He has more details than I do, but it fits your current request."

Nubis smirked at the remark. He couldn't help but be charmed at the to-the-point Twi'lek standing before him. "Why all of the fuss?"

Nubis waited for the answer which didn't come. The Twi'lek simply looked at the poised snipers and smiled. There was a pause and a breeze kicked up, "That's all I'm here for. You can either accept the offer or not."

Nubis took another quick glance at the snipers. "And if I decline?"

The woman Twi'lek just looked at him. Suddenly, Nubis' datadap chimed. He looked down to read the message. "Well look at that," he said just loud enough for the other to hear. "Looks like I'm going to have to cut this little conversation short, sweetie."

After scanning his surroundings, Nubis walked right past the woman and up onto the ramp of his freighter. "Sorry, babe," he called down to her. "I'll make it up to you."

With that, Nubis passed through the doors of the freighter and into the ship. He walked to the cockpit, sitting in the pilot's seat. Poor thing, he thought about the blue Twi'lek standing alone in front of his home. She must hate me. He smirked alittle.

The B-7 freighter lifted off as the repulsor lifts kicked in. Within moments, it was speeding off into space.

Andorra smiled as she waved good bye to the man. A group of Lambda droids approached her.

"Search everything. I want his DNA, I want everything on this man." Andorra ordered with a smirk

The droids piled into his room and Andorra signaled the droid snipers to scout around.

Andorra entered the modest home and grinned yet again. Her eyes searched the living room, which had a table. She walked over to it and began to look over the contents.

"Ma'am. We have everything you listed...Downloaded all of his files, taken his DNA and gathered several more things." the droids responded

"Good, Load up and lets leave immediantly" Andorra responded, "Oh wait...Did you install the spyware into his computer?"

The droid nodded and Andorra smiled

"Good. I hope to see Mr. Nubis soon...But what we have gathered will help us learn much more about him..."

Andorra and her droids boarded the shuttle and exited Dantooine. After they cleared their exit, they jumped to hyperspace.

Andorra is now enroute to meet with the Genian
