"Pa. .you're not leavin' me again, are you?" Her eyes would see a familiar child, chuckling while holding a cloaked figure's hand. Content. The scene shortly shifted to their hands drifting apart, the child screaming in yearning for her father. Further, and. .further. .and furth-. ."Ma'am. ." Called out in a drowned out masculine tone. "Ma'am!" The word grew louder with each call until finally Talaya was yanked from her reminiscent thoughts. "Ma'am. ." He smiled. "Can I offer you a drink?" With a subtle head shake, she denied. "I'm fine. Th-. ." She huffed abit with a half-cocked grin. "Thanks." Watching the male walk away, she looked down to find herself in a seat. Music ringing in the ear. Dancers atop elevating platforms and dancing within the night club. The drifting female remembered her reasoning for being here. Matsu Ike. With the galactic empire at its knees, and her father gone she'd up and left home without a word. With only her name, abit of credits and the clothes on her back in her possession, she'd stand to her feet and approach the necessary folk. "Lookin' for Miss Matsu . ." Looks sideways in honest attempts to remember the rumored name. "Matsu. .Ike. Is she here?" She'd question.

Karatos was a very different place then she normally went but it had been built with a purpose. Taking a club, giving it a make over and allowing the jedi to operate out of it while searching for force sensitive children to welcome if they wanted to or if their paren ts would allow it into the order. She stood there in the back rooms, that were attached to the lower levels and the enclave of the jedi who were there. Watchmen and investogators working with the local police to handle crime when something came to her. "Master Ike, there is a little girl here asking for you." She had a look on her face turning away from the wall with all of the images of different criminals on the palnet they had managed to document.

 

"Very well, bring her up on the screen." She said it and stood there, the robes on under her cloak, light brown with white mixed in. GOing into her boots that were secured with small clasps and a belt. Small pouches and her cracken field kit on her hip obscuring the one side but allowing her sabers to rest idle on the other hip. THe force radiated off of her body and her hair was down over the brown cloak that flowed to her ankles. The synthmesh cloak was designed much like the green jedi cloak she had made when she was seeing the image crackle to life with the view of the clubs interior. She was looking over it and grinned.

 

Her skin was pale, paler then usual but she was older now and she knew a few things. Her black hair thickand down to her ankles, in braids that were interwoven for it to be more like a ponytail designed from all of the haired braids. Swert smelling oil laced with crystal dust and tiny inth metal bells that had been designed to be decorative to the jedi. SOmething to wear as she became and continued to become stronger int he force. Her learning, her experiences, all of that work towards it as she viewed the screen taking in the image of the girl before speaking. "I see, then have her brought up towards the office and I shall meet her there."

 

Matsu gave a small look and was looking voer at some of it as she went up into the office for herself. Letting the zeltron jedi who were there head off to get the girl. Standing tall in the modified robes, they looked like dancers but they were jedi... specifically investigators and ones meant for going undercover who could give the girl most of the protection. "This way please." They spoken and led the way through the club, towards the back rooms and up the stairs into the office that was overlooking through a large panoramic crystasteel viewing port. Able to become solid and one or double sided so she could look out if she wanted to. "Welcome to Karatos, you were asking for me."

Stood there, just momentarily and still as can be. As the jedi began their trail to their superior, she looked left and right with a face of: "That. .actually worked?" Briefly shrugging her shoulders, she'd accompany them until she heard the voice of Matsu Ike herself. Rumors so rarely proved fruitful, but this rumor reeked with experience, and feminine charm. Talaya's lips would spread, if only just abit, to show her satisfaction before nodding. "Thank you. A uh. ." Looks through the viewing port to see women dancing, the drunk chugging 'till drunk was an understatement and etc. "Nice place you got here." Huffing a bit to clear the nervousness dwelling within her stomach, she spoke. "Name's Talaya." It'd seem the younger female wanted to speak her last name, but the word didn't want to escape her lips. "I've heard rumors of you, ma'am. You've accomplished a lot, from what they say. And. .well. .I'm on my own. Pops is gone n' . .well. .I need your help. I've uh. .been daddy's girl my whole life, ya'know?" She looked off ward. "Sure 'e had people teach me to punch, how to fly n' how to fix stuff but. .I'm lookin' to start my own life. I want to explore." She'd say with a sudden glinted smile and brief chuckle. "I want to know whats beyond that one home I spent my whole life. To defend myself. To enjoy my days instead of waitin' for someone I knew would never come back." Her jaw tensed, noting the clinching of her teeth. Huff. "I'm sorry. .it's been a rough year, ma'am." She'd look up to the woman. "I want help bein' much. .much more than I am now." Her eyes faintly glistened with tears she fought to hold back.

She was listening to her as the girl spoke a hand coming up and flicking her wrist to make the crystasteel viewport become solid. Giving them the full room while holographic images appeared to make the blank space look full. Then the jedi master was stepping around the desk to listen to the rest of it and the girl wanted to learn.. nothing wrong with that, she wanted to be diferent. That was entirely possible before Matsu spoke finally with a small tilt of her head. "Well I try to do a lot and am always happy to help." She moved closer but not to close and offered a seat as her other hand came out, turning her fingers to start a small tea pot in the corner of the room.

 

"Come and sith, tell me more about yourself. A name is usually helpful unless you would prefer I just call you girl." SHe offered it as a joke to try and break the ice but it was one of those things she wanted to get out of the way. "Have a seat through, there will be some tea and if you would like any food." THe jedi master moved to sit across from her in the opposite chair instead of on the other side of the desk. Her hand going to the arm and activating a small control set to bring up anything for herself about the girl. "As to your father, if you want us to try and find him. We can help but we would need more information. The rest, teaching you can be done but understand it is not an easy road."

Talaya decided to sit, legs in one way crossing over the other in feminine fashion. Fingers rubbing against her arm to ease the nervous tension. The device, should her name be plugged in, would display the basics. Her name was Talaya Rade, Daughter of Cyril Grayson, or Graxin Rade. Home Planet is unknown, but she her name holds no bounty. Generally she seemed no more than a commoner with a last name you'd either hate, love,or have forgotten about. Deciding to throw caution to the wind, for now, she spoke. "Talaya, ma'am. Talaya Rade. And no. I haven't had much of an appetite lately." She'd adjust herself in the seat. As the woman offered aid to help find her father, a pit was carved into her stomach out of shock, and partial fear. "He-. ." She'd pause. "No," Followed by a fake, brief smile. "As far as I know. .he's dead." Slow exhale. "More about me? I turned 18 last month, I'd guess my best skill is gymnastics and well. .my worst is lying. I can fly a ship, and fix a ship if I have to. Never really liked the idea of dresses, pinning my hair up all nicely n' stuff, y'know? I got strong so I wouldn't be a burden on pops, I figured pops didn't need a princess. He needed someone capable, and dedicated. So. . ." Briefly flings her arms up, "Here I am." She'd say in joking, yet serious manner. "Ma'am. My majority of my life's been easy. Gets borin', y'know? I want to work real hard for somethin' I really, really believe in. I wanna be able to say I lived. Pops use to show me these. ." She'd pause. "These. .little ancient figures. Artifacts. Some golden, some dusty, some gleaming. I used to think they were so cool. I told 'em one day I'd explore the galaxy and find the best ones for 'em. But . .I don't know the first thing about findin' 'em, or archeology." The woman joined her hands and looked to Matsu Ike. "What about you? What has your journey been like so far?"

That was a name that she knew at least somewhat... in truth though the jedi master wasn't really going to judge her. She had gone through quite a lot and Matsu remained there as she sipped some tea listening to what she could do and what she wanted to do. Taking it all in and she had a small grin on her face.. well now that was something she could do. She could take her with her on adventures if she wanted to go... a nice fun one that hadn't been seen in awhile if they were lucky when she was moving around. "Well I was born and raised within the jedi order, I have moved through different aspects of the order and as some would say classes but in truth I went where I was needed."

 

She said it while she was looking over the girl though. Mostly to see what they might be able to do with her. She had some raw skill and they could refine it, the jedi master had a few projectd and places in the galaxy she was looking to explore with some of the jedi but she was uncertain abolut all of it. "We can get you some skills and training in how to search out, gather information, research and find artifacts. There is more to it then just running in, a good adventurer is safe and prepared for any of the situations." She said it and stood up going around. "Though there is some things I am working on here. Jedi investigators have been working with the local police to handle things on the planet."

 

She gave her a small look though while raising an eyebrow and offering a hand. "If you help me we can get it done and then head off. I can teach you on my ship while we are heading towards one of the more ancient and wild worlds. A place you can explore and learn the craft of seeking out ancient information, ancient artifacts." She clasped her hands behind her back and was walking. "There are some things though, I am a jedi and if you are going to be traveling with me there might be temptations. The darkside isn't just a risk for me it can be for you as well."

The woman's pit of nervousness admittedly began to fled as time moved forward. First and foremost Talaya was pleased the jedi master gave her time to speak to begin with. She was anxious about moving forward with her life, exploring and discovering things far beyond what could believe possible. However, if the jedi master was to assist and guide her, she felt a bit of glee for what was to come. "You'll uh. .have to forgive me. I don't know much about the . .je. .di? Or. ." Snaps fingers. "Whats the other one? The sich? The . .sip!? No. Mm. .sith. SITH. Yep." She'd shake her head a bit with a subtle chuckle. "What I know is my pops had a blue sword. Maan. .how it buzzed so loud. A scary thing. I was too curious for my own good. Told me to promise to never try n' steal his." Looking around, she continued. "In any case. .I'd be glad to help you with . .uh. .whatever it is you need, Ms.Ike. I'd be grateful if you spared me the time to teach me these things." For a brief, and just a brief few seconds, she smiled in both bright and feminine fashion and did a small dance in her chair from excitement. After that moment, she'd cough into her hand. "F-. .Forgive me. I uh. .get excited easily. Mm. .where do we begin, exactly?"

Matsu looked at her and offered a nod of her head so that they would be able to begin. "We'll start right now if you want to." Matsu was walking and giving her a motioned with her free hand. So that she could join her as she opened one of the doors to head through into what they were looking at. Equipment, some clothing in different versions of the clothing and robes that could be used. She spoke. "It is alright, excitement is something anyone can have and well I am not your father. If you wish to join the jedi, to be tested and come with us then I will do all that I can for that but I am not so rigid that it is a requirement. If anything training and teaching you how to do things... could be fun."

 

One of the rare students that she could have roaming around with her who wasn't a padawan.. for now maybe.. she wasn't certain. Picking up one fo the field kits that the girl could use the jedi master stuck around with a second hand going to some fo the saori skylar clothing. "You can get changed, we have the skylar in different types of clothing for anything and there is plenty of food in the equipment pack along with the supplies you will need for training and testing." THe woman said it while she was standing there and stood next to her while she brought her hands up. "But there is another thing, you might not want to but when traveling your looks will matter. If you look vulnerable you can be in danger of being attacked, if you are to well dressed it can attract the wrong attention as well.

Stood and walked with the jedi master to the supply area, a curious gaze looking from top to bottom. Clothes, equipment, gear. Inwardly, she briefly felt bad for those who might try to cause harm to this experienced woman. Nevertheless, she spoke. "You're uh. .kind. Really, but I'd like to see the galaxy first before I decide who I wanna protect it with. Still, I'll never forget the offer. Who knows. .one day maybe I'll have a blue sword, too," She mused with a passing smile. Now thinking on the woman's last words, she'd try her best to find a middle-ground. The woman accepted only enough equipment as needed to successful learn, and protect herself, as well as clothing that would allow her free movement but something that'd at least help somewhat if she were struck, or shot at. Talaya being herself though, she'd try to find something that fit her well or at least looked nice. With these things, she'd return shortly with them equipped and her hair pinned in a knot. Moving her arms around jokingly, she flashed a smile. "Well. .how do I look?" She'd do a minor twirl.

"No pressure." She said it to her not wanting to join yet or maybe ever but the jedi master knew how to be patient... She knew how to be patient and focused until the stars might burn out and the galaxy stop spinning. She was looking at her when she was getting changed and twirling around with a nod of her head in approval. "Very nice looking." She was ready and started getting some fo the equipment for her when she continued to walk through th back areas of the club. Some of the police were there in the rooms with the jedi and working on all of the different parts of the investigations, where they could go to arrest some of the criminals around here. Matsu was gong down towards the basement tunnels to get them to the landing pad. "We have most things done and handled here, investigations and arrests are going to be hapen. I was just signing off on some of the final parts of it.

Talaya accompanied the woman throughout the more covert-end of the nightclub, traveling with curious eyes ever-looking about and around. "Mm. .so thats what you needed help with?" She looked downward in thought. "Reminds me of the run in with a few thugs at Hilo. Badd timess. ." Swallowed in thought for a minute or so, she looked up and found herself still following the woman. "Nevertheless I uh. ." Arm rub. "I'll help, Ms.Ike." Taps her chin abit. "Until we get there, though, would you mind entertaining a girl's curiosity? Those guards that let me in. They jedi, too? They were uh. .pink. The first zeltron I've seen up close. Wasn't bad looking either," She'd admit with a brief smile. "If its not too personal. .do you have family, Ms.Ike? Or . .a man you love?"

Matsu was looking at her when they walked and she spoke. "Yes they were zeltrons and jedi, we are maybe one of the only jedi places on the planet. Mostly because no one wants to try and come to zeltros. Instead we are just going to work on it and keep it low key, a secret from the galaxy." She was able to work with that and the second question was something that you would have to understand before she was walking in the hallway. I do not have a man in my life." She said it while walking. "I had two women and with them five daughters." She said it while moving now and the halways became a tunnel going under the city as the sounds of the different clubs were there. The directions taking them towards the space port and there was the sound of another party in the streets.

 

Matsu stopped at the one door and brought up her hand to open it up as it revealed stairs going up to a private jedi hanger where they had droids and jedi dressed in more formal garbs. The traditional robes of the order. One of them in their zeltron style robes over a dejah thoris style outfit. "Ami, what is that you are wearing?" The zeltron was tall, and fair skinned, making it lightish red before she was speaking. Purple black hair and pale pink eyes looking down. "It was a gift from the king, he wanted to have an escort for a meeting with some offworlders and needed me to blend in with the other slaves being brought or... concubines whatever you want to call them. Seems there was an attack on one of their pleasure barges a few weeks back and they lost a lot of girls."

 

Matsu gave a nod of her head though while she was going and embraced the jedi tapping it for a moment. "This is still strange but just try to work things out. ONce I am gone you are going to be back in charge after all." The zeltron looked at her and bowed her head before she was walking away. Matsu laughed a little though when she turned back around and walked. "But as I was saying, my family is my daughters. Shora and Hanna both sadly have passed to become one with the force. Leaving me here to my own solitude." She looked at the ship that was docked, small and more modular but it went as a means to get to her ship in orbit. A hand coming up as the chevron pad beeped with symbols to open the doors and admit the two of them.

Stood within close proximity of the jedi master, music in ear and eyes ever observing the covert nature of the jedi's base. It intrigued the curiously cursed woman how x amount of civilians, thugs and or do-gooders only know of this place if Matsu Ike wanted them to know. Coming into sight of the more traditional jedis, along with their droids, she'd offer brief nods of respect before the woman began speaking with a zeltron female. Looking to the jedi master for confirmation, she entered the ship but turned to face those within the room first. She couldn't help but smile abit. "Mann. .these zeltron are gorgeous. Can't get over it." Sighing briefly, she'd enter the ship and await Matsu. All the while, it was time to do abit of math.

 

Talaya's Mind

Man + Woman = Boy Child, Or Girl Child

Woman + Woman = 4 Girl Childre-. .error, error. .error. .brain malfunction

 

"Hm. I'm sorry to hear that, Ms.Ike. I hope this uh. .force rids them of any pain and suffering of this world." She semi-awkwardly looked around abit, evidently new at consoling individuals. "Mm. .if you don't mind my asking though. .how'd you. . .well. .make daughters with women?" Blinks in curiosity.

Matsu looked at her getting into the ship and she asked a question that... the jedi master didn't normally answer. A few people knew of her family.. others knew she had children but didn't know about a spouse. So she spoke siting down and motioning for the padawan to come and sit with her. "Well when one woman and another woman love each other very much, they can go to a lab and get tested. Using the latest genetic tests and the force for some work you can have children." She said it while looking at her and the ship was heading up as the viewport showed the planet itself. Massive and sprawling with a party going on and the pheromones were thick in the air. Above in orbit of the planet were the defense fleet of Zeltros itself made form hundreds of ships that were on loan from party goers with crews and soldiers to defend the world against hostile attackers. The ship itself appeared in the distance and it was square but worked as a force garden.

Sat down the with Matsu Ike, hands in her lap as she laughed at the woman's explanation of how the feat was achieved. Almost like the birds and the bees talk she never received by her parents. Nor would want to at this stage. "Ahhh~" She'd respond. "Well its nice things like that are possible. Quite frankly. .I'm sure there are a lot of things possible that I don't know about." She'd look out the view port and observe. Space, the planet, the ships. A galaxy so wide and so little of it she had actually explored yet. "Hey uh. .actually-" She'd turn to Matsu. " -I wanna know more about this dark side you were talkin' about earlier? Does it affect everyone? Or just you folk with the uh. .'woosh' type force powers? And. .how would I know if its happening?"

Matsu looked at her and was thinking of how best to explain this while respecting her wishes to not be taught. A jedi would lecture her, teach her the dangers but that wasn't what the girl was asking about and so. "The dakrisde doesn't just exist for force users, those who can feel the force might feel its sway stronger.... but the darkside exists. With the cruel, the oppressive the corrupt. It is giving into your selfish desires, it is hatred and cruelity, it is that voice in your head telling you that you deserve this and no one else should have it." She looked at her as the ship docked with the Botany Bay and she remained there not just rushing her. "All of your life, regardless of if you feel the force if you never become anything more. You wil want to work on knowing the difference between the dark and the light."

Talaya sat in her seat with a rather blank stare, words spilling into ear. "Mm. . .watch out for the bad head voices. Gottcha~" With a brief wink, and a 'okay' hand gesture, she'd nod and turn to the viewport. "Well, Ms.Ike, I can uh. .I'll at least promise to learn the difference. And . .well. .not be a baddie, in general. It's not exactly my style, y'know? But who knows. .its a large galaxy out here. Things can change very fast, I take it." Looks at the interior of the botany bay. "Besides. .I presume if I fell to this darkside, then that'd make you my enemy. Annd. .well. .I assume my body wouldn't look too good being diced into a billion pieces, y'know? Think I'll uh. .keep it intact." Looks off ward. "Well then. We're we off to now, Ms.Ike?" Curious blink.

She looked at her and stood up offering an arm for the girl to take a tour. "Well if you did such a thing, the prospect of being an enemy is not great. There is always a chance for redemption but once you give in, it marks you. Can forever dominate your destiny." Matsu waited but the door opened while she was going through the hallway and the droids took care of everything mostly. The jedi master opened one of the doors leading into the garden area of the ship. Large, filed with a stream, animals and flowers... trees and grass that was force sensitive and in tune with the lightside of the force. Even the stones within the stream were in tune with the force. "Welcome to my home away from home. THe botany bay." She was looking over and bringing out some fo the colors all around. "It is a massive garden and well I have a wonderful bed under the astrometrics system. If lets me see the stars."

Accompanied the jedi master to the botany bay, door opening to what appeared to be a garden. . .on a ship. . . .with living animals. . . .and a . . .stream?

 

System failure

. .Rebooting. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Systems Online.

 

And so the woman's eyes would trace every bit she could see, a face of awe and partial confusion. If this was her home away from home, she'd simply never go back home. She'd crouch to dip a few fingers along the water to test if it was real, or clever projection. "Maaan. .Ms.Ike." She'd turn to her. "You really know how to go all out, don't you?" Smiling a bit, she turned back to the garden before rising to her feet. "Think this is my first tour around a ship like this. Ships I'm used to are the ones cramped for space, n' . .well. .y'know. .animal-free. How'd you get all of this in here anyway?"

She was looking at her face and could have sworn there were blue screens of death before the jedi master shook her head. Clearing away the distraction with a small grin. "Well it helps that I built it, to design and specifications. A better way for the ship and now you can chose wherever you want to sleep. The small forest here is full of trees you can get beding between and there are micro fields that can keep some of the animals away so they won't lick your face in the night. We even have some artificial heaters that have been worked into the ground so I could take my children camping." Matsu was walking as she offered to continue to guide her student.. she was teaching her how to be an adventurer so student it was. "Lets see what we can get you, something nice and we'll figure out where we'll head to."
