Despite being so unlucky, Akabane wasn't someone who used that as an excuse to stop trying his best. He would do anything in order to reach Aevan, including abandoning his work. And guess what, that's exactly what he did. When he thought about it, not showing up to complete the tasks master gives him might become an issue. Although he could always make it up by bringing back something interesting or maybe someone interesting, that someone being Aevan. Yes, he thought about encouraging her to become a sith. Akabane wasn't proud of it but it'd be nice having her close by instead of far. He hated not knowing where she was.
The primary goal was to find Aevan while on his little vaca. He often didn't get any information involving her, so looking around all day and night exhausted both him and his wallet. Living expenses weren't much of an issue thanks to his ship
. The drinking habit is the thing that broke his wallet. Experiencing failure after failure put him in bad moods but liquor working its magic helped. Akabane was aware of his unhealthy habit and had no intent to stop. Well, until he basically had no choice.
Akabane landed on Jakku one day prior to today. A cantina was his destination and where he heard of the observatory. Coming here for a drink was his reason in coming here, as one could assume. However it soon got replaced by asking these men about this observatory. The numbers were small inside, either age or the planet took a toll on the locals. Though there were small in numbers Akabane tried to get information out of them. He saw no harm in doing something else while taking a break from searching.
One man was old and short, he spoke first. "You must be a greedy bastard."
the whole room erupted with laughter and then stopped. Akabane grinned, "Are you implying theres something of worth in an old observatory?"
all of the men looked at him for a moment before looking back. "You must not be from here, boy. A building that old defiantly has some goods in it."
Akabane was intrigued and forced the old men to explain where this observatory rested. It took some time but he eventually found out the location and planned to go the next morning.
He headed towards the building as soon as he woke, there was no reason to wait. Akabane's ship hovered above the structure, he scouted the area to see if anyone was outside. Of course they weren't. Even a corpse would hate to be in this weather. The observatory appeared to have other people interested in it. Perhaps some fighting had broke out too as seen by the freshly sliced speeder bike with another nearby. He wanted a closer look so he opened the ramp and on the edge. "Droid, keep her in the sky until I return."
he dived off of the ramp headfirst aimed at the ground.
The wind came slowed his falling allowing a soft landing. Akabane now stood beside the sliced speeder bike in his favorite outfit
. "A device capable of cutting through metal in one quick motion, a lightsaber most likely."
he concluded as he analyzed the destruction. Someone wielding a lightsaber was inside there. The masked Akabane moved forward.
Once inside, he could feel that other people were certainly here. How many of them? Are they working together? Sith? Jedi? He wasn't sure how to approach this. Akabane tried to make a flame like a kind woman taught him, but he was unsuccessful. His lightsaber was probably the only light source he had at the time. Unlike the others he decided he would stay back. Knowing too little bothered him too much. He sat down and leaned against a wall in a hallway, darkness consumed his figure.
There was a Jedi that taught Akabane many things. She did this thing where they aligned mentally. Remembering this gave him an idea, hopefully the idea meant he'd get some information. He wanted to use telepathy so he could talk with someone further into the observatory. The person can tell him whats happening and he promises to be nice. Or worse case scenario, he helps them get out of trouble if there really was a fight here. Akabane tried it out, he'd continue sitting in darkness anyways.Feed me. No, down here.
he said joking at first. Sorry, I was being silly. I'm not sure if you can hear me... but uhh anyways, I'm Akabane and I've come for the treasure. I don't know your status but unless you cut your own speeder bike in half, I'd get out of there. If your interested however, we can become partners and work together. My droid is piloting my ship for an emergency escape so don't worry about getting away if things go bad.
hopefully the attempt would be successful and reach Edric Vanyan
Something outside had made a noise, a vehicle? Men made their way inside the observatory after some time. He stayed out of sight and moved in the shadows. Being a ghost would make it easier than starting a conversation about how he came here for treasure like everyone else.

Searching for one little girl was harder than he originally thought. While he had no plan in mind and knew it wouldn't be easy, he expected some luck to be on his side. One time they met by pure coincidence after all. He just had to have that kind of luck. Unfortunately, life never went his way, it threw all of his good fortune away before birth. First came loss of both parents and all other relatives, Akabane's villages burned to the ground, and now Aevan. There were many more occurrences of misfortune but those struck him the hardest.
