Location: Uncharted island, Relovian
Time: 1300 Hours
The Republic Agent Garter had chosen a location very far away from the Ravens and the Republic, for security purposes of course. Sheerly for security. Patricia sat back in beach chair underneath an umbrella, bellow her white soft sand rest just beneath the hovering heels of her feet. Ahead of her gentle waves slowly ebbed and weaved back and forth against the coast, a few palm trees scattered out around her and a hundred yards behind her was a rented spacecraft under a different name. They were on Relovian, a planet in wild space that was well known for the Barter Islands. The specific island they were on had no technology on it whatsoever, no cameras, microphones, or ways to spy on the meeting whatsoever.
Patricia had on a pair of dark brown sunglasses and a tight hot pink bikini, and in her long flowing blonde hair was a white lily that clung loosely in her hair. In her left hand she held a portfolio in a Manila envelope, in her right there was a tropical drink of some kind. Besides her was a table and another lounge like comfy beach chair. She had chosen this location for more than it's seclusion, but because it was beautiful. There had been so much death lately, with the loss of Manaan and fighting the sith. With the deaths of billions and her time watching all the crimes and extorted people living in poverty. She hated it, she hated all of it. So even if it was just for an hour or two she wanted to sit here and soak in all the beauty around her, the quintessence of life itself.
She was here to meet her Jedi handler Kian Karr. They had regular messages sent between the two of them through secure comm links but this would be their first meeting in person. The little five foot two agent wanted them to meet somewhere nice, somewhere that they could appreciate beauty for once on a very long time. There was no war, no dead people, no dead friends. So she waited for their arrival in her swimsuit and sipping her drink, not really wanting this to end. The only way this could get better was if her little girl Erika was here.

Kian Karr had a tendency, as a Shadow, to be a bit.....paranoid. As such, he lingered back in the shade of the trees, watching Patricia Susan Garter and the beach for a time, looking for signs of someone watching her. What he found was that they were pretty much alone out here. There were other people of course, but it seemed they were all looking for seclusion and the closest person was a ways down the beach, far enough away for Kian to be unable to make out their features.
But still......Kian was a bit paranoid.
"Make contact." Kian said nodding to the young girl standing beside him on the sand and he sank back into the shadows of the trees, using the force to help keep himself concealed. Soli Baris nodded to Kian and began skipping out across the sand, acting like any other 15 year old girl would on a beautiful beach. She was dressed in a modest swim suit and her hair was pulled back in pigtails.....Kian would have to talk to her later about overselling the part.
"Hello!" Soli said stopping next to Patricia and rocking back and forth on the soles of her feet and giggling. "Your very pretty!"
"Do you think you could help me find my parents?" Soli said, this time putting a bit of concern in her voice. Kian watched and listened with a smile on his face. The girl had always shown a great deal of promise for this sort of work even as a youngling, and Kian had watched her progress through the Jedi for a time. Though still a Padawan, Kian had quickly enrolled her in the Shadows and put her to use as an operative.
As skilled as Soli was, Kian was curious as to whether or not the girl would be able to fool Patricia. This was likely the most skilled person Soli had made contact with to date, but it wasn't necessary for her to fool the spy, only for her to make contact and lure her back to meet with Kian. As beautiful as a place this was, a Kel Dor on the beach would stand out a bit too much.

Patricia continued to simply sit back and soak in the rays of the sun, it felt good really really good. Her pale flesh almost radiated in the light and it was clear she wasn't getting enough sun, sure some guys liked pale chicks but she preferred to not look like a ghost. So again she raised her drink up to her lips and took another sip of the juice. She was loving the simplicity of it and was really in the vibe, that was until a giggly pig tailed fifteen year old walked up to her and spoiled it. She opened with a compliment and moved on into helping her find her parents. If Patricia was a balding middle aged man she might of done something, but she wasn't. And her skills as an agent told her something was not right about the situation.
"Hello." Was all she said in return to the girl then began her assessment.
The girl was fifteen or around that age by the looks of it, and she was dressed up to look very innocent, pigtails and what not. And most of all she asked her to help her find her parents, it wasn't like she was five. And this was a small island, and when she was her age she would of never asked anyone to help find parents. It was the age when a teenaged girl was most rebellious and very anti parent, so there was that. And after that there was also the fact she was bubbly and giggly despite the request of looking for parents, most kids are sad when that goes down. So all and all this kid was not looking for her folks, this was something else. Was she followed by the ravens?
"Just one moment." She said with a smile.
Reaching under her seat the sound of a hammer cocking back on a Czerka machine pistol rang out and she smiled at the girl.
"Now have a seat and let's talk about who sent you."
Posted 12 February 2015 - 06:18 PM
There was a flash of alarm in Soli's force signature at the sound of the cocking hammer, but Kian had to give her credit, the smile never wavered on her face. Soli plopped down in the sand and crossed her legs, leaning back as if to tan herself.
"I was too chipper wasn't I?" Soli asked, cocking her head to the side. "I don't get off Ossus much these days.....I'm afraid the excitement of it all just got to me a bit." Soli said glancing out into the water ahead of them. "What do you suppose those shadows in the water are?" Soli continued, as if they were just two friends having a conversation on the beach. The hints she left in the statements were simple and meant to draw Patricia to the right conclusion. She may have blown her cover, but she wasn't going to slip up and say names....not with her boss watching.
"It is awefully warm out here.....perhaps we'd be more comfortable under the shade of the trees." Soli said turning back to Patricia Susan Garter beaming with youthful enthusiasm and hinting at Kian's location.

The kid was really green when it came to this sort of work, though she should of stuck to honey potting pervy old men whose bellies extended past their belt. However Patricia was still not a balding pedophile and the girls ruse to change the topic of the conversation did not change her disposition towards the situation. Had the ravens followed her? Had they learned about her infiltration? No that didn't add up, they certainly wouldn't of sent a fifteen year old girl to ruse her into going off into uncharted trees. No this was something else, perhaps it was a thief using the kid to scout out any marks. Or maybe it was part of her handlers posse to make sure Patricia was who she said she was? Regardless Patricia did not intend to follow her, although she was going to teach the girl a lesson on this particular line of work.
With almost an inhuman speed and blur of motion Patricia produced the Czerka machine pistol and leveled it between the girl's eyes. Nothing taught a lesson better than pain or fear, the girl really didn't deserve this but it was better she learned young and save her some pain.
"Listen to me brat, I am not someone you want to **** with. And before you keep running your stupid little mouth I'm going to tell you this is not a two way conversation." Patricia all but hissed at the girl as she spoke.
"I ask, you answer, I command, you execute. I hope I am making myself clear." Patricia worked back the slide letting the gun chamber a round as she spilled venom with her words.
"Now here's what's going to happen, you are going to call out whoever the hell is calling the shots and watching us, and before you do that you are going to tell me who sent you." Keeping the pistol leveled she finished off her demands shortly after
"If you don't comply within the next five seconds I'm going to paint a picture on the sand behind you with your pretty little brains." She wouldn't, Patricia wouldn't dare do that. But the girl didn't know that, maybe this would help her learn her lesson that you need to alter your appearance and attitude for different marks.

Kian watched from the Shadows and chuckled to himself, shaking his head. Soli was trying to be subtle, she was taught not to name names, not to reveal anything, even if her cover was broken. He had to give her credit too, she would likely die there before giving up Kian's name, or revealing that she was with the Jedi.
But Kian wasn't going to let that happen. He still had plans for Soli. So while she sat there eyeing the blaster and saying nothing, Kian reached out with the force and his innate abilities as a Kel Dor and spoke directly into Patricia Susan Garter's mind.
This is Kian, please don't kill my young associate, Kian said telepathically to Soli and Patricia while relying a sense of calm through the force, She is only doing her job. Kel Dors tend to stand out on beaches.
I'm aware that the area is secluded.....but I'd prefer to not be seen. Kian didn't know Agent Garter at all, nor did she know him. So while he was hoping to talk her down, he also prepared to react in case she fired. He was close enough that he could throw up a force barrier between the young girl and Patricia. Kian also made note of the fact that the agent was willing to execute a 15 year old girl......clearly working together would be a learning experience for them both.
"Not being shot would be nice." Soli said, not joking but giving an honest response. She might not look it, but Kian could feel that Soli was scared. She was a skilled asset for the Shadows, but her abilities with the force were limited.

"uugh" she groaned and stood up.
She sighed and lowered the pistol, placing it back under her chair and turning the safety on. She grabbed the Manila envelope that had a very detailed report on how the Red Ravens operated, assets, personnel, and even better was their weaknesses that she had been extorting the crap out of recently. So with that in hand she adjusted the white lily in her hair and walked forward up the beach letting the sand sink between her sandal covered feet. Patricia cleared the distance between her and the trees until she was a few meters in facing the Jedi she was here to meet. Just call her crazy but there wasn't a lot of his species just hanging out on islands, not that she cared to remember exactly what he was but she could tell he had the posture of a Jedi.
"Good afternoon sir, I have my report ready to go right here." She gestured to the envelope in her hand.
"And I also-" Patricia paused for a moment and suddenly felt very ill. She coughed and sputtered and turned around to gag in the bushes, it wasn't a very pleasant sight but the tiny five foot two agent did it gracefully. She coughed a few times and kept her drink down. It was morning sickness, the agent was pregnant. She held up one hand and turned around again.
"Sorry, he's being feisty today." She said with a smile then continued
"I have a few things I need to say off the record."
Posted 20 February 2015 - 05:31 PM
Kian watched as Patricia Susan Garter approached and bowed his head to her in greeting. Then suddenly she was turning away, feeling sick. He's being feisty? Kian considered the words for a moment, and the fact that she was becoming ill right in front of him. Pregnant? Was the agent pregnant? That hadn't come up in the reports.
Kian had to bite back the urge to say something...to tell her that she was taking a big chance going into an undercover assignment pregnant, but he stopped himself. Kian had no right to judge her, he didn't know the circumstances and besides....there was a job to do.
"Excellent." Kian said eyeing the envelope in her hand and then raising a brow at the off the record remark.
"Speak freely." Kian said turning toward Soli and nodidng his head. She didn't look happy but she got the idea. Walking back toward their shuttle, Kian and Patricia were left alone to talk privately.

Patricia took in a deep breath and exhaled slowly. She was a bit nervous about what she had to say but she knew that the republic did need to know and that her loyalty did lie to them. Zeltros was her home and she had lost her family when the sith attacked. Now all she had left was Romeo and their daughter Erika, and not to mention their son that was on the way. But there was still a job to be done.
"I've entered In a agreement with the Sith Lord Darth Metus, owner of Stargo Defense Enterprises. This agreement in exchange for an object I have already paid is that I will be given a failsafe that takes control of all red raven droids created by Stargo and self destruct codes for ships. Now let me get this across I have control. Not the republic, and not my bosses. I want to help the people on these worlds and build the quality of life before I decide to launch an attack. These people deserve better and I need to give it to them. I love the republic and my home but I can't begin a coup without making sure these people are taken care of first. But bellow my report will give you everything you need to know about the ravens and then some." She said finishing her small speech
Red Raven Intelligence Report
In my observation of the Red Raven criminal syndicate they have structured themselves after a modern day democracy. People within said positions are listed bellow
President: Cryax Bane
Executive Assistant to president: Patricia Susan Garter
Vice President: Logan of Little Coruscant (real last name unknown)
Minister of Diplomacy: Chiasa Kritivaas
Secretary: Keira Ticon
Sergeant At Arms: Currently Open
Worlds under Raven Control
Headquarters: Dragon Palace Casino. *Schematics and building plans listed bellow detailing shield generators layout and personnel*
Teth: currently suffering rakghoul plague
Makeb: Capital Talaos city in ruins from sith and rebel attack.
The red ravens do not openly govern their worlds with a traditional military presence or elected official that represents the gang. Rather once they have gained control of the system they place a "shadow politician" into the seat of government who is an extension of the ravens will. Life goes on as normal but the world is under control of the syndicate from the shadows. Most of the military presence on the planet are droids that are hidden away in warehouses and various raven owned buildings that are activated when substantial trouble is afoot.
With Subach industries now being a thing of the past the ravens still have a substantial navy but limited without a new company providing ships to them in a steady surplus. Ships are ran by droids and organics alike but the ravens mostly stick to droids as their main military and hired guns for strike teams when they are needed. They lack a formal organic military but make up for that strength in droid power. The main fleet mostly idles on Antecedent unless needed.
President Cryax Bane
The president of the red ravens has a problem, well problems. He is a spice addict and alcoholic. He shows massive signs of PTSD and torture from his body. He is irresponsible and a incompetent leader of the organization. My recommendation is to keep him in power no matter what in order to keep the ravens from better organizing and becoming a bigger threat. He has killed in the past and not in battle but in cold blood. He is more than likely the best slicer in the galaxy and can get past the best encryptions in hours. Do NOT underestimate him. He is dangerous despite being a fool, he is rash, unpredictable and will do what is necessary to achieve goals he sets out for the ravens.
Logan Of Little Coruscant
Sith. A war criminal from Manaan he took part in the invasion that killed men women and children. Consider him extremely dangerous. He is a joint member of the One Sith and uses the dark side quite frequently. If this man were to come into power the Sith's grasp on the Ravens would become complete.
Various Codes and clearances
Bellow entailed numerous clearance codes and communication lines, Landing permits and IFF tags and designations

An agreement with a Sith Lord? It took Kian a moment to push down the sudden sickening feeling that crept into his throat. He understood that in working with an undercover operative he would have to deal with the blurred line between right and wrong and that he would likely be involved, albeit limitedly, with the condoning of criminal behavior. But a Sith!
Part of why Kian had gotten involved in this assignment was to route out the Sith involvement in criminal organizations such as this....and here he was inadvertently working with one. Pushing aside his discomfort though, Kian had to then consider what the operative was saying.
"As a Jedi my duty is to ensure the protection of the people on the planets you speak of." Kian said, assuring her he had no alternative motive. "But that is an awful lot of power for a single individual to be holding. Make sure you use it wisely." Kian warned. Then cast his eyes down and took a few moments to go over the report she had handed him.
"This is good work. It would seem it would be in the Republic's best interest to see to it that Logan is undermined at every possible opportunity." Kian said, trying to come up with potential operations to put into place based off of this intelligence.
"Are there any other weaknesses you feel we should exploit?"
