Chapter I: The Mysterious Cube
Bane leads the way back into the facility. He takes a corridor to the right, and then follows it all the way down to a storage room at the far end. The storage room is empty, and appears to have been ransacked at some point, with empty crates and canisters strewn about the place.

Bane raises a hand for silence as they reach the room, and stands still, as if listening. After a moment he seems satisfied.

"There," he says, pointing to the wall to their right, "Cut through it."

OOC: Bane Malar used Telepathy on Utai Patron. (DC11 to resist).

The cloaked figure does not hesitate. Slinging Sora's unconscious form onto the ground beside him, he activates the weequay's blue lightsaber, and jams it into the wall, slowly moving it in a circular shape of a meter or so diameter.

It does not take more than half a minute for the circular hole to be completed. Once it is complete, the cloaked figure deactivates his lightsaber, and Bane steps forward and gives the separated piece of the wall a kick. With a loud crash it falls out into the room beyond.

"And that is what is known as 'making an entrance',"  Bane says, rather impressed with himself.

Chapter I: The Mysterious Cube
Peering through the newly formed entrance, the pair are met by a couple of dozen of the stumpy creatures, all of whom are staring at them in shock. These creatures are not wearing the uniforms of those that have previously attacked them. These ones wear an assortment of outfits, ranging from overalls to vests to dresses. The room in which the entrance leads appears to be a restaurant of some kind, as almost all the creatures are seated at tables, with various plates of what they consider food before them. All of them seem to have frozen in shock.

"Don't mind us," Bane says pleasantly, replacing the cut piece of wall after he and the cloaked figure have dragged Sora through.

One of the creatures, possibly the proprietor of the establishment, has recovered himself by this stage, and has hurried forward, squealing and squeaking indignantly at the intruders.

"Of course. We understand completely," Bane says placatingly, glancing at the cloaked figure.

"Yes, yes," says Bane impatiently, ducking past the creature, "Don't tempt me to set my friend on you."

Attempting vainly to catch hold of Bane as he passes, the creature steps firmly in the way of the cloaked figure, hands on its hips.

"Fine by me," says the figure coldly, balancing Sora while he draws the lightsaber, raising it above the head of the stumpy creature.

At the sight of the reactivated lightsaber, the creature seems to think better of its decision, and quickly falls back with a terrified squeak.

Bane has already reached the door, and peers outside.

"Clear," he calls back, moving out.

The reason for this becomes clear a moment later, as a pair of the red armored warriors come into view, striding past the establishment.

Bane waits for them to pass, before cautiously peering out once more.

"This area is crawling with them," he mutters.

"How far is your ship?" the figure asks, ever of a one track mind.
