Chapter I: The Mysterious Cube
Scooping up Sora's lightsaber, the cloaked figure charges forward, looses his grip of the weapon, and manages to catch it.

He avoids meeting Bane's gaze.

"Blast it," mutters Bane, eying the cube as it clatters across the floor of the corridor. He darts up and takes a shot at the creature who downed the cloaked figure. His shot strikes the creature squarely in the forehead, and it collapses and does not rise.

Chapter I: The Mysterious Cube
Bane gasps in pain, clutching a hand to his wounded shoulder. With his other hand he fires with his rifle, striking the creature which shot him in the chest. The momentum sends its smoking corpse skidding across the floor and into the wall opposite.

"Why do I feel like I'm doing all the work here?" he mutters to Sora, panting.

OOC: Bane Malar dealt 20 points of damage to Utai Guardsman.

Chapter I: The Mysterious Cube
Sora continues to sit in the now eerily quite corridor for a minute or so, eyes closed and breathing shallowly. Then he takes a deep breath and with a gasp he rises, staggering over to Bane's body. The mercenary is alive, the final blast having struck his lower abdomen. Sora searches the pouches strapped to the mercenary's belt, and is relieved to discover six medpacs. He then staggers to the cloaked figure, who he is relieved to discover is also alive. With difficulty he fumbles to inject one of the medpacs into the cloaked figure's system. He misses the figure's vein and a red light flashes on the pack. He withdraws a second, trying to steady himself. This time a green light flashes on the pack, and the figure seems to stir.

"Are you all right?" Sora asks.

OOC: Zirak Derasir has gained 2 wound points.

"Also, are you any better at applying these things than I am?" Sora holds up one of the remaining medpacs.

"Nope," the figure says simply, "Stab them in and hope they hit a vein is my only strategy."

Sora grins, moving over to Bane. His grin quickly fades as one by one he fails to apply the packs to Bane, leaking bacta all over the mercenary's flight suit.

“You grab his arms, I’ll grab his feet,” Sora suggests, retrieving his lightsaber and slinging Bane’s rifle over his shoulder.

“Fair enough,” the cloaked figure responds, retrieving the cube and one of the blaster pistols belonging to the recently deceased creatures.

“So,” Sora pants, once they have Bane dangling in a rather awkward ‘U’ shape between them, his hindquarters skimming the metallic floor of the corridor, “Which direction do you guess his ship might be in?”

They continue up the corridor which Sora has selected, passing through what appear to be dormitories. The rooms appear to have been abandoned in a hurry, with drawers open and tables upended. The pair rest Bane on the floor temporarily as they investigate the rooms.
