The man was fast, faster than Nicair had ever seen. It took everything he had to keep up with the slashes, at times he couldn't manage and the knives cut through his armorweave. They weren't large gashes, but they were enough to show he wasn't fast enough. He had to close the distance, grapple with him. The strikes were coming too fast, he was going to wear out in his armor. He could already start to feel a dull ache in his shoulders.

 

An arcing slash was just the thing he needed. With an almost desperation he reached his left arm up, grabbed the man's wrist, turned his body around, and threw his hips into his upper thighs. He kept his grip on the wrist and used it to pull himself close, in doing so he thrusted his knee onto the side of his foe's neck and tugged up on the arm. Nicair would eventually need to try some form of hold to incapacitate him, but for now he needed a second to readjust to his surroundings. He would have been able to do so had a leg not wrapped itself around his neck. Such flexibility was practically unheard of, he had kept his position, kept his torso long. His foe had to have torn something to get his body to contort in such a way.

 

The leg around his neck flexed in such a way that his head was being twisted back, he couldn't hold the position, if he tried the other leg would come up and he would be in a choke hold. He collapsed his own base, lifted up his leg from the neck of his opponent, pulled the man's body flat to his back and slammed his leg back down onto his throat. It wasn't meant to be a completely offensive maneuver, he didn't have the power or leverage in his position to do much of anything. But it was something that could be used to get him into an arm bar position. The two quickly became locked up with Nicair's foe on top of him, it was a neutral position, neither had the clear advantage but neither was willing to give up their hold. 

 

Work fast, Jedi.

Lilla was no slicer. She had no way of speeding the downloading process up, nor know how efficient it was being. She knew the software would be trying to hack in to the system any way it could – oftn via somewhere obscure – where the security was law, then weave a course through progressively more sensitive areas until it could give access to information of use.

 
She had one ear on the altercation outside. Noise was good. It meant neither party was dead.
 
Finally, the device emitted a low beep and a voice said, “Please state search parameters.”
 
Lilla thought quickly and listed the names of the pirates that her armoured friend had shared. Then she threw in the names of the systems and planets the pirates had been known to operate.
 
‘Take your time, stowaway,’ she thought – she had no idea how long this would take.

All he had to do was bide his time, he had become aware of that. Thing was he was used to grappling individuals with bones, this one didn't seem to have any. With the same contortion skill as before his attacker was almost able to twist his lower body 180 degrees, at the very least his legs and head were in the same direction. His booted feet were what Nicair had to worry about, one of them was pressing down on his throat and the harder he fought to keep from losing his grip, the tighter it became on his throat. If he lost his grip the worst case scenario would put him on his stomach with his foe having his back. A death sentence. Best case scenario he might be able to slip a triangle choke in if he too could contort himself. In a more realistic perspective, he'd end up losing side control, possibly north-south. neither were ideal for this situation. He had to at least try something. Anything he tried would be a gamble.

 

His left leg was pretty firmly around his attacker's neck, that would be his leverage and was probably the only thing keeping him alive. His right leg he let drop and straighten out slightly with his foot on the floor. He'd only have one chance at this but if he was able to pull it off he could do some serious damage. Because of the way his opponent's body was contorted, and his own locked up position, he couldn't get a solid knee strike in. He'd have to have the mobility of losing his grip in order to get the needed twist in his body so he could swing his knee around. He didn't know much about this specie's biology, but if they were anything like a human's their kidneys would be in relatively the same place. If Nicair could wrap his legs around him after the strike he'd be in a perfect position.

 

He took a breath before releasing the grip and pushed off with his right leg. With his left he heaved his leg, and his opponent's torso towards his incoming knee. His own torso he twisted around underneath himself on his shoulder so that the two both had their bellies towards the ground. The knee connected and his foe grunted, he could hear the air leave his body. Kidney shots are killers. He used his arms to hold himself up and looped his right leg up and around. It wasn't the ideal position for a triangle, but it could be done. At the very least he'd probably be able to lock his legs together, whether he could get the choke was to be seen.

Lilla still sensed two live entities in the corridor outside, and nobody had called for her help – so she applied her not inconsiderable patience to the task in hand – to wait for the data to upload.

 
The mechanism she was given to use was making what she hoped were appropriately positive noises, with little ‘ping’s every now and then which, she presumed, meant files either found – or downloaded, or possibly both.
 
Standing here in relative silence, she could hear the sounds of the tussle outside and remained vigilant – especially listening for anyone arriving to unbalance the currently carefully balanced odds.

Regor watched the two men battle on his view screen. He was truly impressed. His agent was one of if not the deadliest of his kind. This Mandalorian was holding his own. The woman he was keeping tabs on but not watching consistently. If she kept at it she would eventually find what she sought on their computers. The man was going through his own test, but she, she needed to be coaxed into hers. He turned to the gathered men around him, guards armed with blasters not drastically different than the one the Mandalorian had taken.

 

"Go and assist him. Let's see what they're made of." He grinned to himself as the echoes of running feet filled the corridors.

The datachip bleeped. Was that to tell her it was complete in its upload, or that it had encountered a problem? Lilla was about to ascertain the most likely reason for the noise when she sensed approaching newcomers. 

 
A few moments later, she heard them — their boots beating a steady beat on the empty corridors. They were military, she ascertained — for they ran in step. Maybe to hide their numbers and perhaps because it was ingrained. Either way, the stowaway needed her help.
 
So she pocketed the datachip and dropped her cloak to the floor. It was handy for keeping you warm but useless for fighting in. And she kept her saber attached to belt — the corridor was too tight to use one safely. But then she didn’t need it — a Jedi’s training taught them one thing. They — not the saber — were the weapon.

The approaching boots worried him deeply. His attention had to be focused solely on the man he was currently locked up with. Any more than he and Nicair was going to be at a severe disadvantage. His first step to not dying immediately was going to be to free himself from his position. If he could find a choke point to funnel them in then he had a chance, but he hadn't seen one. He hoped the woman heard them as well, if he remembered correctly she still had her lightsaber. The ignorance of the indigenous population was proving useful.

 

His enemy heard the footsteps too, and yet, just like Nicair chose to untangle them from their pretzel. This freeing went much smoother once both of them had the same idea, no matter how much it confused Nicair. The two rose to their feet in a defensive stance, both expecting the other to reattain the offensive. Neither did. The agent stood upright and relaxed, a grin on his face. This grin slowly turned into laughter as he threw one of his knives onto the ground in front of Nicair. To call it a knife was a stretch, it was more akin to Nicair's beskad, too long for a knife but too short to call it a sword. In any case, the act was simple enough in its message. You'll need this.
