Private#1PostSubject: The Rat, the Gem and the Savages...   Thu Aug 31, 2017 8:17 pm

"So, did anyone catch that game on WWX last week?" the wanted criminal asked his Bounty Hunters. Since none of them wanted to talk to him he'd just continue with his lonesome ramblings. "I bet a lotta money on the White Rhino...I feel like he might win...doesn't he look like a winner?" he turned to his captors again, sitting by the campfire but then sighed. "This...is boring..."


The large Ananaki got up with an annoyed groan and walked over to Donald Levi. Briskly he placed the bowl with cooked meat onto his lap, “Stop talking…” he growled with a thick accent at the Human. “Eat…”


With that Maq Ra’im returned to his spot near the fire. His mate sitting next to him, passing a bowl with his share of the meat.


The sun had long set here on this ‘wild’ planet. The Ananaki didn’t bother to learn its name, all they were interested in was the Hunt. What the Imperial authorities warned them about was that this planet was basically a moon filled with nothing but jungle. On top of that the natives were primitive tribals that resembled some type of frog? And they weren’t exactly friendly, every time the Empire attempted to reach out to the frog-men they were greeted with spears and arrows so they stopped bothering.


“Hey guys, I don’t want to interrupt your lovey-dovey moments but...what is that?!” The criminal asked as he peered up at the starry skies.


Xa’ra looked at him and then to where he stared at...Indeed, there was a strange object in the sky. “Ra’im…” she said as her voice grew concerned.


Maq at first didn’t bother listening to the Human’s ramblings, he just wanted to enjoy his food but as Xa’ra’s concern was obvious he did look up.

Just in time he pushed Xa’ra out of the way as a ship crashed into their campground and during that chaos the trickster Donald Levi slipped away from the camp...

Suddenly the Ship Phoenix jerked to the side as it was shot. The young pilot stumbled to her seat as an alarm went off and her ship's shields went up. Frantically she started hitting buttons as she took manual control and turned off the auto pilot. "Pilot Sapphire, Captain of the Phoenix, Requesting that you stop Firing. This is a noncombat vehicle." She sent through her communicator. The answer was obvious as another shot exploded beside the ship. Her ship quickly shot forward into a jump in an attempt to get away from the enemy ship. The problem was the first shot took out her brakes so the random green moon sized planet that was directly in her path was her only hope of stopping and she took the chance.

As the ship entered the atmosphere it started to slow at a brake neck speed. Her set soon ejected and the parachute soon after. Landing in a Jungle was never a good thing but at least it was a planet where she could breathe. Her parachute got caught in the trees but thankfully she had her knife to get cut down. Upon Landing, she was quick to first check for immediate dangers. Finding that the place was clear she slid her communicator open and searched for her location and any info on the place she could find. she then got it to read as she attempted to locate her ship. 

"Cities None.
People..people, Not.. fri...endly to out...si..der..rr.ss"

She closed her communicator with a curse. "Why Do I always end up on planets that hate sky people and tec." she hissed before looking at the place and decided to start walking. she extended her staff at its full length as she used it as a walking stick.

The large male slowly pulled himself up, resting on his elbows. The camp was completely decimated, luckily their own ship wasn't in the trajectory of crashing ship.

The crash caused a deep grove in the ground that went on all the way through the campsite and a cluster of trees and bushes. This ship was give or take some 10 or 20 feet bigger than theirs? 

But right now he was thinking about something else, like where his thief went... The Ananaki warrior walked around but alas that 'bird' took flight the moment he saw his chance. Maq Ra'im let out a low growl, the chase is on again.

Meanwhile Xa'ra assessed the damages of their equipment, which is to say...they don't have any, not anymore. When she heard her mate growl she turned to him, "What is it?" she spoke to him in Irkall.

Maq sighed, "The bounty escaped but he does not have a ship. So he won't be leaving anytime soon."

The purple-skinned alien nodded at him, unsheathing one of her blades she searched for an entrance to the crashed ship. With the male doing the same thing as there could be survivors.

Xa'ra climbed on top on of the ship's wings and that's when she noticed some scorch marks, "It got caught in a battle, I see plasma burns here."

Maq Ra'im proceeded to investigate by ground until he discovered that the cockpit was damaged, "Xa'ra...The front," he simply stated.

The woman walked towards the front and that's where she could tell, "The seat is missing and the roof is blown out. Whoever survived is out there somewhere..."

Both Ananaki glanced around their environment. Keeping their senses on alert for anything they decided to explore the ship further as they infiltrated through the cockpit.

Sapphire kept trying to get a signal every time she saw the sun through the trees. It took a while for her to find some signal but once she did she stopped and read the rest of the report. The whole planet was a jungle and her biggest threat was the froglike natives. She then turned on the ship locator and followed where the arrow pointed.

She mostly had to keep straight and hope it was right as the connection weaved in and out mostly staying out. She slowed as the cut trees and creator came into view. She stopped and put her hand on her head as she saw the disrepair her ship was in. She put her hand down and placed it on her gun as she noticed a someone searching her ship.

With tinted goggles they were rummaging through the ship, searching for anything useful to replace the equipment that got destroyed.

Maq Ra'im had so far only picked up the scent of a single person but no others, "Single pilot..." he said to Xa'ra.

The small woman nodded, agreeing with him as she opened cabinets in the kitchen area. Sniffing at food leftovers or pots and pans, her nose wrinkled when she reached sweets. "There's nothing much here, what did you find?"

He stood beside her with arms carrying blankets and that was it. The Ananaki did not see much use of human equipment. Not even guns.

Sapphire walked to her ship and climbed onto the top then opened a hatch before climbing down into her ship. "Hello," Sapphire yelled. She knew that it did not matter what language they spoke for every intelligent being understood her and she understood them thanks to some unnatural gift she had. She just hoped that they were friendly. By what she could see it seemed that her ship destroyed a camp and that would be a good reason to be mad.

"Um, Whoever you are I am sorry that my ship crashed into your camp." by the looks they planned on using her supplies as a replacement of their own. Also seemed that they did not find much.

The Ananaki were discussing about their next course of action, which was trying to track down their escaped Bounty, Donald Levi.

But just as they were about to leave the ship, their hearing picked up movement outside the ship.

Xa'ra cursed at herself, they shouldn't have let their guard down because before they knew it a woman jumped down a hatch and greeted them.

Maq Ra'im immediately dropped the blankets and grabbed his sword when the woman appeared.

The Bounty Hunters were no fools and quickly figured out that she must be the pilot of this ship. And this fact was confirmed when she apologized for it.

The Ananaki both paused, assessing whether she was going to be a threat or not. But then Xa'ra spoke up, "You caused our bounty to flee..." she said to the survivor in the galactic trade language.

Maq Ra'im meanwhile sheathed his blade again and picked up the dropped blankets and then simply climbed back out of the cockpit.

Bounty hunters. well at least they have a different target in mind. she actually could care less what they took saying she knew more than they would ever know about that set of blankets. She was also glad to have the intruders off her ship.

The ship, she almost forgot, was completely trashed. She went to the cargo bay and found the tools she needed to fix her ship. First the exterior would need fixed. She carried a vacuum sized scan and fix up to the top. she turned it on and started to scan the aria that the blast had damaged when it lost power.

She inspected it to find that the charger had gone bad. well this stinks she thought. She looked around at the mess and realized that she could not fix her ship. and that was terrifying. she slid down the side of the ship and than walked to the back were she sat down and started to play with her communicator.

Xa'ra followed Ra'im through the cockpit as well and joined him outside as she landed with a thud.

Ra'im was making preparations to chase after the escaped fugitive. He explained to Xa'ra that he had picked up the man's scent and wanted to get moving before it dissipated. "He is moving eastbound."

The dark, purple skinned alien nodded absently, being distracted by something as she stared at whatever was standing next to her mate.

Maq Ra'im turned to her and stared at her oddly, glancing around before he figured it out what was wrong with her.

"What are they telling you this time?" he asked her about her affliction.

She snapped back to reality and chuckled softly, "...The spirits want us to help the stranded female," she said in Irkall.

Maq Ra'im raised a brow, it was not unusual for the Ananaki to see beings of the spiritual world. There were Dark Shamans in their culture for a reason. But these last millenia the species seemed to have slowly sever their ties with the spirits, favoring technological advancement. That didn't seem to please the Ancients nor the remaining Shamans, but it didn't stop the spiritual world from trying to connect and this time they chose Xa'ra for that burden.

He cleared his throat, "Why this woman? Is she important to them?"

"Who are we to question them, they will not tell me why they just tell me to do it."

***

It wasn't long when they spotted the woman sitting down against the ship, fiddling with her communicator.

Maq Ra'im spoke up, "There is no signal here, radiation from a distant planet prevents it."

"Yea i have noticed the lack of signal. It just makes it annoying to not know where i am or being able to contact anyone. Expressly with my ship not being fixable at the moment." She said before sliding her comunicater closed and getting up. 

Sapphire was not one to ask for help as qhat pride she had kept her from ever appearing weak. But she did need a battery cell and they may have one. 

"You wold not happen to have a battery cell for a repair 3 bot would you?" She said. "Its of if not i mean my ship is borderline repairable anyways."

Xa'ra offered some information about the planet, "I do not remember what it is called but we do know that it is a moon covered in just jungles with some lakes here and there. The only inhabitants that hold some sentience are the tribes of some type of Frog species. This planet lies in Imperium territory but they have resisted any contact from us so it became a protected planet instead. The Varanus make sure this planet is left in peace..."

Now whether or not this information was useful or not, was up for debate.

Maq Ra'im however shook his head when Sapphire asked for parts, "We do not have Human technology, ours won't work on yours. But there may be a place where you can find outdated parts."

He turned and pointed at a direction, "The tribes are known for salvaging whatever ship that crashes here, stripping it down and capturing the survivors. Perhaps you can find spare parts in their settlements."

Xa'ra looked back and forth between the two before she realized something. She held out her hand towards Sapphire as was 'Human' customs, "We are Ananaki, we are part of the Serpentum Imperium. He is Maq Ra'im and I am Xa'ra," she introduced them.

When introductions were exchanged Maq interrupted again, "We can take you to one of the settlements but we must also find the Bounty..." he said, indicating some sort of trade. They help her and she could help them, after all it was her fault that the fugitive escaped.
