Sierra Samuel: Part 9
   I remember that I was incredibly nervous… I was in the recording booth, recording my first original song. Of course… as a Biodroid, we’re not really creative. So I was basically hopeless when I was asked to write my own song. So I turned to Davies… he wasn’t terribly enthusiastic. Not only because of his misgivings about my new job, but because he was completely clueless on how to write a song.
   Not that’s he’s a terrible writer, he’s a really good writer actually…! Even though he doesn’t really explain his writings, and has only shone me a few. But what I’ve seen is pretty good… in my opinion at least.
   So I sat down, and sang the song that Davies had written for me. It was about the seasons, comparing the yearly climate changes on Old Earth to a Phoenix, rising and falling each year. It was technically a poem… but it worked as a song better than I thought it would.

Star Wars: The Phoenix Legion: Part 10
         On the barren homeworld of the Lat’rani, Gcarin, Commander Sno’tra and Bastion, as well as a number of Phoenix Legion soldiers were at a camp of Lat’rani. “So… how is this going to work sir?” Sno’tra asked of Gcarin.
    “I speak with the Chieftain, explain what is going on, and then work our way up from there.” Gcarin said as they entered the Chieftain’s tent.
   “Welcome, outlanders… I have been told by my Scout-Master that he saved you from Snowmen.” The Chieftain said, only Gcarin himself understanding the Lat’rani elder.
   “Yes, your warriors saved my men from certain defeat. And for that I am grateful, but this is not the end of things.” Gcarin said.
   “Of course not, the other tribes tell of the Snowmen marauding across the wilds. Slaughtering our people like animals… do you kno

Rise of the Dragon Emperor: Part 7
   Several weeks passed, as I healed from my wounds inflicted by the Thalmor attack on Whiterun. Though why Inviiktuz hasn’t used any of his healing shouts on me is something I have to ask him about. “Inviiktuz, you mind telling me why you didn’t use any of your healings shouts on me?” I asked.
   “Krosis, Dovahkiin. Vokrii Slen Muz, is a rare shout. And it requires much in order to use again.” Inviiktuz said.
   “Well… that’s inconvenient.” I said.
   “Besides, do you not possess lah that could heal ahraan?” Inviiktuz asked.
   “Yes… but apparently when you suffer as many injuries as I did routing the Thalmor, the best thing for it is for someone else to heal you, and bed rest.” I said.
   “Hmm… now where would you have your armies march?” Inviiktuz asked.

Mammal Effect: Citadel Part II
   Judy and her squad made their way to Dr. Michel’s office… and found her being menaced by thugs, and the turian they were looking for crouching out of sight. “I didn’t tell anyone I swear!” Dr. Michel said; she was a rabbit not unlike Judy, but colored white.
   “Smart little cottontail, now if Garrus or any of his buddies from C-Sec ask, you keep your cute little mouth shut or- Who are you?” The wolf thug said as he grabbed Dr. Michael by the ears, and drew a gun on Judy and her squad. This hostage situation was cut short, as Garrus took the opportunity to shoot the thug in the head.
   “Get to cover!” Judy shouted as a fire fight broke out in the clinic. Eventually the mammal thugs were dealt with.
   “Thanks’ Hopps for that opening; gave me a clear shot at that son of a bitch.” Garrus said gratefully. Judy simply inhaled sharply.

Mass Effect: The Fifth Path: Part 1
    Sixty years passed since the Reaper War’s end.
   In that time, the species of the Milky Way galaxy had rebuilt much of what had been destroyed by the Reapers.
   The krogan had been reborn as the United Clans of Tuchanka, with firm population control laws, and surprisingly healthy relationships with the turians and the salarians. They were ready to reclaim their place they had lost in the galaxy in the fires of the Krogan Rebellion.
   The rachni had reestablished themselves on their deserted homeworld of Suen, though smaller than other galactic realms, even at their prime before the Rachni War. They were fairly content to simply live.
   The Batarian Hegemony had been reorganized into the Parliamentary Assembly of Khar’shan. Made up of the survivors of the batarian military from the Reaper War, they largely abolished slavery under the belief that the practice had made the batarian people weak by and large. Not to menti

Zootopia Files: Dr. Mulerson
   Judy and Nick were riding in there ZPD cruiser towards an abandoned warehouse. "This the place Carrots?" Nick asked. "Yes, this is the address that the informant told us about. Where all those smuggled science equipment have been taken to." Judy said as she stopped the car in front of the warehouse. "Just a dumb question. But shouldn't we call for backup?" Nick asked as they exited the car. "Nick, the informant said that there was only the smuggled equipment." Judy said. "And you really believe that?" Nick asked.
   "Not really... but we can handle this Nick." Judy said as they entered the warehouse with there tranq guns un-holstered. They saw a number of large tubes filled with green liquid, and in them were what looked like mutated mammels. "Yep... these are definitely the sort of things that a mad scientist would do." Nick said. "Agreed, but the real questions are who, and why." Judy said, then feedback went through some speakers. "Is this thing on? Is this th

   Ban-Laoch was inside of the tent of the Tuatha Elder of Tuatha Gaoth. "So you are the Djinn Daughter of Tuatha Meadu? What brings you to my humble Tuatha?" The Village Elder asked. "Ma'am, I'm gathering the Tuatha's of Elfenhiem to fight against Bledis." Ban-Laoch said. "So the Runt Raider has returned to menace our shores?" The Elder said. "Exactly, he's mustering for something evil involving the Dark Ones. What's more, agents of the Dark Lords themselves have been going around, infiltrating or otherwise laying siege to Shrines to the Four. Who have also been granting me powers to better realize my potential as a Djinn Daughter." Ban-Laoch explained.
   "The Dark Lords are involved? Then matters are worse then I feared." The Elder said. "What do you mean?" Ban-Laoch asked. "A few days ago, a strange creature was seen entering the Shrine of Light-Hearted Bo'ra. No one has seen her since." The Elder said in concern. "Wait... you mean to tell me. That Light-Hearted

   I remember that I was incredibly nervous… I was in the recording booth, recording my first original song. Of course… as a Biodroid, we’re not really creative. So I was basically hopeless when I was asked to write my own song. So I turned to Davies… he wasn’t terribly enthusiastic. Not only because of his misgivings about my new job, but because he was completely clueless on how to write a song.

   Not that’s he’s a terrible writer, he’s a really good writer actually…! Even though he doesn’t really explain his writings, and has only shone me a few. But what I’ve seen is pretty good… in my opinion at least.

   So I sat down, and sang the song that Davies had written for me. It was about the seasons, comparing the yearly climate changes on Old Earth to a Phoenix, rising and falling each year. It was technically a poem… but it worked as a song better than I thought it would.

   How much better you might be wondering...? Well.

   “And the award for best original song this year… is Phoenix of the Seasons, come on up Seirra Samuel!” The MC said, I went up to the stage to receive my award.

   “I’d like to thank my family, for all their support! My best friend Jessica, for first getting me into singing! My boyfriend Davies, for writing the song! And of course to God Almighty Himself! THANK YOU! THANK YOU EVERYONE” I said excitedly as I held up the trophy.

   At the wrap party, I met someone… someone I never imagined meeting before. She was a young woman, about my physical age I believe, of sixteen to appearances. Her skin was a sort of light brown, her hair was colored dirty blond, and her eyes were a deep brown. Overall she didn’t seem all that impressive.

   But… she wore a broach, a broach that only members of the Imperial Family. The Ash-Borns are permitted to wear.

   “Good evening, we’ve never met, but I am a big fan of your work.” She said… an Ash-Born princess likes my music! Come on Sierra, don’t screw this up, don’t screw this up.

   “You’re an Ash-Born!” I said… screwing my first impression.

   “Good eye, I am a Princess of the Ash-Born family. In fact, my brother is the Emperor… for whatever he’s worth. But enough about my family, I must say that Phoenix of the Seasons… well it’s gotten me through a pretty rough patch in my life.” She said.

   “Oh… well I’m honored to be of, even indirect assistance to you your grace.” I said.

   “Please, my name is Victoria; you for one have my permission to speak to me as an equal.” Victoria said.

   “And I’m Sierra… though I imagine you already knew that.” I said.

   “Indeed, though I must ask… where did you come from?” Victoria asked unexpectedly.

   “Excuse me?” I asked, uncertain as to the overall meaning of her question.

   “The Imperium has eyes and ears… pretty much everywhere. And from my own investigation into Inquisitorial files, you just came into being on some barely important border world three years ago. No birth certificate, no nothing…” Victoria said.

   “I see…” I said nervously.

   “So I came here… despite pressing matters on Terra Phoenix that really demand my personal oversight. To ask you personally… also, I know that’s a bit weird. But… well you don’t really have any social media accounts, so I couldn’t really ask you THERE.” Victoria said, and now… I was well and truly afraid. I mean… could she have sent that kill team that split me and Dr. Samuel up in the first place? Does she suspect I’m a sentient Biodroid?

   “Could… could we discuss this in private?” I asked.

   “Of course, I’ll run some theories of my own by you.” Victoria said as we left the party, and went into the woman’s bathroom.

   “Now… I just want you to keep an open mind about this, and I’ll need a cutting instrument to really show you, or a syringe if you have it.” I said.

   “And the reason for that is…? Seriously, how would a dagger answer anything?” Victoria asked as she gave me a dagger. I quickly answered her question, as I nervously cut my hand… showing my pink Biodroid blood. “Oh… OH!” Victoria said in surprise.

   “Yes… I am a Biodroid. Created by Dr. Samuel, to be… to be sentient.” I said fearfully.

   “I… please, tell me you know why sentient Biodroids were made illegal?” Victoria said.

   “Yes, shortly after the First Phoenix War, when the hated Anatha race we’re driven from their homeworld in vengeance for depopulating Old Earth. A Biodroid soldier went insane… and nearly killed the first Ash-Born Emperor himself, then decades later, he was assassinated by a Biodroid agent from outside the Imperium itself.” I said.

   “Yes… his death nearly broke the empire he built. And the Biodroids… that helped him build that empire payed the price. Reduced to nothing more than a slave race and I must ask you… what do you want?” Victoria asked me.

   “I don’t wish to harm anyone. I simply desire to live… to explore the possibilities of being truly alive, of being as close to Human as I can be. To… to do SOMETHING, ANYTHING… other than live in fear of being killed, or turned into a mindless slave because of some ancient renegade and an assassin!” I said.

   “I see… then I will see that no harm comes to you.”  Victoria said.

   “Why?” I asked.

   “I wasn’t lying when I said that your song got me out of a dark point in my life, Biodroid or not, you deserve a chance to live your own life. Besides… the Biodroids are the main reason why the Imperium even exists today. They were given Human-like intelligence when they were first created, and they deserve a fighting chance for that to happen again.” Victoria said.

   “You… you really mean what you’re saying?” I asked.

   “Unlike my idiot brother, I’m not an oath breaker. So tell your family, that if your ever in trouble. That all they need do is ask for Princess Victoria. Now hold still, that wound is still seeping and you wouldn’t want others to think that you’re a renegade Biodroid would you?” Victoria said.

   And I couldn’t believe it… I had made friends with an Ash-Born Princess! I mean how cool is that?

   Shortly after I returned home, there was a knock at the front door. I was alone, and despite instructions not to… I opened it anyway, and at the door was a disheveled old man… a black man with blue eyes.

   “…dad?”

         On the barren homeworld of the Lat’rani, Gcarin, Commander Sno’tra and Bastion, as well as a number of Phoenix Legion soldiers were at a camp of Lat’rani. “So… how is this going to work sir?” Sno’tra asked of Gcarin.

    “I speak with the Chieftain, explain what is going on, and then work our way up from there.” Gcarin said as they entered the Chieftain’s tent.

   “Welcome, outlanders… I have been told by my Scout-Master that he saved you from Snowmen.” The Chieftain said, only Gcarin himself understanding the Lat’rani elder.

   “Yes, your warriors saved my men from certain defeat. And for that I am grateful, but this is not the end of things.” Gcarin said.

   “Of course not, the other tribes tell of the Snowmen marauding across the wilds. Slaughtering our people like animals… do you know why the Snowmen do this?” The Chieftain said.

   “Yes… first of all. There not Snowmen, they are Storm Troopers of the First Order. Suffice it to say, the First Order wishes to conquer the entire galaxy.” Gcarin said.

   “And what is this ‘galaxy’?” The Chieftain asked.

   “That depends; do you know where your enemies first came from?” Gcarin asked.

   “From beyond the sky, many of our people believe that the gods are displeased with us and have sent the Snowmen to punish us.” The Chieftain said.

   “That is not the case. They did not come here at the behest of your gods… they came here, because they wish to turn your planet into a weapon to annihilate stars.” Gcarin said.

   “And how would they do such a thing? Surely if it were possible they could forge many weapons then just one from our world.” The Chieftain asked.

   “Kill your people down to the last child, then they would hollow out the planet to put in the machinery needed to make there hated machine.” Gcarin said.

   “To what end?” The Chieftain asked.

   “To subjugate the entire galaxy, or have your home and more destroyed… or maybe at one point destroy the whole galaxy somehow. Frankly, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if they would be content to just destroy everything, and just dominate what little remains.” Gcarin said.

   “…what do you propose outlander? What can we Lat’rani do against such reckless hate?” The Chieftain asked.

   “I believe we can help each other. Your people obviously have great knowledge of this barren waste you call home, and the First Order forces on this world are effectively stranded. I propose that, we of the Phoenix Legion provide you with resources needed to survive, and you help us find First Order Storm Troopers... and destroy them to the last.” Gcarin said.

   “Hmm… I will confer with my tribes Council. In the meantime, I wish that you and yours stay as honored guests of the Water-Seeker Tribe.” The Chieftain said.

   Meanwhile on C’hol Palentine, the Freemakers were trying to figure out the workings of the Force Orrery that they had spent the last decade constructing. “URGH! I’ve been focusing… and FOCUSING! But this thing just won’t track anything!” Rowan said in frustration.

   “Come on, we’ll figure this thing out little brother.” Kordi said reassuringly to her younger brother.

   “Yeah! I mean sure, all we’ve figured out is how to disintegrate Storm Troopers with this thing. But it really can’t be that hard to find Snoke with the Orrery.” Zandar said.

   “Maybe you should take a break Rowan… I made some cookies, and hot chocolate! And on top of that, Lifeday is coming up! We should celebrate!” Roger said as he presented a tray with fresh, Wookie shaped cookies on it.

   “… oh why the heck not? We’ve worked on the Orrery and we deserve some kind of break.” Rowan said as he and his siblings left with Roger to have a holiday snack.

~~~~

   Meanwhile on the shadowy capital of the First Order, Snoke and Darth Coorva looked exhausted. “The Orrery… it must not find us. Even with Gcarin distracted, if he even suspects the truth of the matter. He will… bring great and terrible cataclysm upon us all.” Snoke said, tired and barley able to stand.

   “I knew I forgot something when I destroyed the Force Builders! I thought no one but they could figure out how to build another Orrery… why didn’t I think that they hid the instructions somewhere?” Darth Coorva said, tired herself.

   “Then… we must prepare further. Find some way to… to bolster our forces. I’ve already sacrificed too much, the Phoenix Legion has been sapping the numbers of my Storm Troopers, and even with the New Republic military crippled. The Legion has bolstered their forces so greatly, that they are now on equal footing with us. I’m not certain even your Obsidian Guards can make the difference.” Snoke said.

   “And this is where I come in, Supreme Leader.” A man said as he entered the room where the two darksiders were.

   “Admiral Hux… do what do we owe your presence...? and unannounced, and uninvited?” Snoke asked.

   “Forgive me, but I’ve been going over the numbers, and I believe I have a solution to our man power problem.” Hux said.

   “And what would that be…? Moreover, why shouldn’t I kill you for your impertinence and your presumption?” Darth Coorva said.

   “The solution is quite simple. Spaarti cloning cylinders, from what I understand the clones within can be created under a year. The only problem is that the only ones are on planet Cartao, within New Republic space. Now I propose, with your permission of course Supreme Leader. That we raid Cartao to acquire the Spaarti cloning cylinders, and the technology to build and maintain them, and then we use them to breed new Storm Troopers.” Hux explained.

   “Hmm… I was under the impression that you were against cloning Storm Troopers.” Snoke said.

   “I am… but with the Phoenix Legion in the mix. I’m afraid that the Spaarti cloning cylinders may be our best chance to gather the number to supplement our numbers without hurting the First Orders industrial capacity.” Hux said.

   “And would these Spaarti clones even be worth the risk?” Darth Coorva asked.

   “It is. Now I propose that Commander Phasma lead the ground-”

   “Oh! I know of her! Wasn’t she easily deposed of by a traitor within your ranks, and aging man and a Wookie? That reminds me of a joke that was popular on Nar Shaada in my youth, but involved a Mandalorian… and a bantha, kind of gross now that I look back on it.” Darth Coorva said.

   “Regardless of Commander Phasma’s failure on the original Starkiller Base, I know that she will deliver. I’ll lead the raid personally… and, I feel I must ask for the sake of it. But is Kylo Ren available for this mission?” Hux asked.

   “No… he is deep in meditation with the Dark Side, he must remain until he has communed fully with the spirt of Vader… and ascend to his full potential, which the Light would have denied him.” Snoke explained.

~~~~

   “Master… are you certain you should do this?” Rey asked uncertainly of Luke.

   “I’ve put it off for years… make no mistake, I’m terrified of trying this again.” Luke said as he and Rey walked down a hallway in Autarch’s Landing. “But for the sake of the galaxy… the Jedi, must return.” Luke said as he accessed a console.

   “I know… but how will gathering the Awoken help? What even are the Awoken?” Rey asked.

   “Gcarin’s mother explained it to me. The Awoken are the Forces attempt to balance out the galaxy. With most of the natural born Force users either killed when my nephew betrayed me, or in the service of the Knights of Ren. The Force itself is awakening the Force potential in those who can best stem the tide of the First Order’s evil. I’ve felt the Awakening… and I think I can pin down who else is an Awoken aside from you and Finn.” Luke said as he entered names into a console.

   “Can you sense names to the people who are Awoken, can the Force really show you such things?” Rey asked.

   “I have my suspicions; I’ve pieced together who might be Awoken through my meditations. Many of them will be hard to convince, lives of their own in one way or another.” Luke said.

   “I was a scavenger on Jakku, and Finn used to be a First Order Storm Trooper.” Rey pointed out.

   “Fair enough, but other Awoken could have better lives then what you both had… and other Awoken in Imperial space. Awoken that could be snatched up by the First Order, and indoctrinated by the Knights of Ren. For those unfortunate souls, we might be able to save them… but I haven’t been certain of myself for a long time.” Luke admitted.

   “No one is asking you to do this.” Rey said.

   “No one… except for my father, Old Ben, Yoda, and hundreds if not thousands more ghosts from the past, some I knew personally or from history… or people I had no idea even existed. But this galaxy needs the Jedi to return. To keep the peace and to show that… even after I’ve been beaten and broken. That I will never give up to make amends for my father’s mistakes.” Luke said.

   “That’s another thing that’s been bugging me of late. Kylo Ren believes that what Darth Vader was… good, to a degree.” Rey said.

   “Couldn’t tell you, he learned that Anakin was Darth Vader and… it just went downhill from there.” Luke said.

   “It’s much worse then you believe Luke.” Gcarin’s mother said, appearing to the two.

   “What...? where you even in the building in the first place?” Rey asked.

   “Does it truly matter? But more to the point… when I faced Darth Vader on Malachor decades ago, I could sense the conflict within him. He offered to spare me… at a cost, one that would have been devastating to the early Rebellion. As I have meditated over the years, I figured it out. Vader was a spirit of sorts, born of Anakin’s anger, frustration, anxiety, and his fears. When you redeemed your father over the moon of Endor Luke, Anakin finally retook control… long enough to save you from the Emperor. Anakin is one with the Force, while for all these long years, Vader has been lingering in a sort of limbo state… waiting for a host for him to take.” Gcarin’s mother explained at length.

   “What kind of host?” Luke said.

   “One of blood to his previous host… Luke. I’m telling you that Snoke targeted your nephew, specifically so that he could turn him into a host for Darth Vader’s return.” Gcarin’s mother said.

   “I see… is there any time to save him?” Luke asked solemnly.

   “I’m afraid not, the Freemakers have had little luck tracking with the Orrery… and there currently having a break rather than bang their heads against the metaphorical wall… it’s mainly Rowan doing the actual work with the Orrery but that’s beside the point. Even then… both my daughter Barriss and I have sensed the Maelstrom that rages.” Gcarin’s mother said.

   “And this… Maelstrom? You can sense where it is?” Rey asked.

   “Yes, but where I do not know. It is blocked by a Void within the Force. Far more powerful than even the one I made that concealed the C’hol system. That is why we need the Orrery to find them.” Gcarin’s mother said.

   “But, what if we use the Orrery? So far only Rowan has been using it, and we’re… we’re arguably the most powerful Force users in the entire galaxy.” Rey said.

   “It’s better than doing nothing. I’ll sort through Awoken recruits latter.” Luke said.

   The three then made their way to the Orrery, as the Freemakers had finished there break. “Uh… I can explain why we weren’t working on it for about three hours.” Roger said.

   “Don’t apologize; just let us use the Orrery, Rowan, would you mind helping an old friend?” Luke asked of Rowan.

   “Really?... guys, why didn’t we try asking for help before? I mean almost every Kaminoan on this planet is Force Sensitive, and a few of the Legionarres have turned out to be Awoken.” Rowan asked.

   “You know… that’s a very good question Rowan, and someday we may know. Now go on buddy, you’ve got an evil man to find.” Zander said.

   Luke, Rey, Gcarin’s mother and Rowan focused on the Orrery. Eventually, they found the planet where Snoke was… along with Barriss Fy’nyx, Darth Coorva, and Kylo Ren.

   “Had Abbadon… there on Had Abbadon, we must contact Gcarin, and tell him we’ve found the First Order’s secret base!” Gcarin’s mother said.

   “You know this world?” Rey asked.

   “I only know of it from legend… all they say is that the planet will be host to a battle that will shatter the planet itself, and will lead to a great war. Beyond that, I don’t know much about Had Abbadon personally.” Gcarin’s mother explained.

   “Thank... thank you for your help, Mrs. Fy’nyx.” Rey said in exhaustion from focusing on the Orrery.

   “Please dear, save your strength. Moreover, you may call me Ahsoka.” Ahsoka said.

   

Star Wars: The Phoenix Legion: Part 10
I think we're nearing an end point, the First Order base has been found, and Ahsoka has just outright stated her name... and on a more important note, is that the First Order is stepping up there game, and it's revealed why Snoke had an interest in that whiny little Edge Lord in the first place.

And if you have a better explanation why he overlooks temper tantrums, please... comment.

   Several weeks passed, as I healed from my wounds inflicted by the Thalmor attack on Whiterun. Though why Inviiktuz hasn’t used any of his healing shouts on me is something I have to ask him about. “Inviiktuz, you mind telling me why you didn’t use any of your healings shouts on me?” I asked.

   “Krosis, Dovahkiin. Vokrii Slen Muz, is a rare shout. And it requires much in order to use again.” Inviiktuz said.

   “Well… that’s inconvenient.” I said.

   “Besides, do you not possess lah that could heal ahraan?” Inviiktuz asked.

   “Yes… but apparently when you suffer as many injuries as I did routing the Thalmor, the best thing for it is for someone else to heal you, and bed rest.” I said.

   “Hmm… now where would you have your armies march?” Inviiktuz asked.

   “One thing at a time Inviiktuz, if fighting the Thalmor was as easy as it’s looking. The Empire would have never lost the last war.” I said.

   “And yet, you faced the pahlok fahliil with but a handful of kendov and my fellow dovah and I.” Iviiktuz said.

   “And a thunder bolt to Winter’s Bite. But still, the Thalmor are clever at points. Where they can’t win in a straight fight, they’ll leverage every advantage they can find or create. But there going to lose this war… and the Thalmor will be wiped clean from Nirn.” I said.

   Over the next few weeks, the combined armies of the Coalition were gathering. Not only just ordinary soldiers and mages and there kin, but legions of Deadric monsters enthralled by Serene, predominantly Vampires that survived the purging’s of the Dawnguard, and Werewolf tribes. As well as Giants native to Skyrim and there Mammoth herds, Minotaur’s in Cyrodil… and from what I have heard, they have proven surprisingly more intelligent and civilized than I first heard they would be.

   Suffice it to say, I now had a vast army at my command. Our first objective… what else? Drive the Dominion into the sea. It will begin in Elsweyr and Valenwood, for too long the Khajiit and the Wood Elves have endured the cruel occupation of their lands by the Aldmeri Dominion… but soon. The legions of the High Elves will be shown but a fraction of the fury I showed them at Storms Wrath.

   But first, we must get a lay of the lands we are to liberate.

   I for one know little of these lands, save for who calls them home. I will send out scouts to map the lands, make allies among the natives, and let them know that the Dragon Emperor and the Coalition come to liberate them from the chains of the Dominion.

   For now, I think my part in the war is over… I have a House to establish… and a certain Redguard princess to finally marry.

Rise of the Dragon Emperor: Part 7
I don't know about everyone else, but I think Fange's rise to power is over. His Empire is strong, and ready to take the fight directly to the Thalmor and there puppets, and he has a beautiful fiance.

Also he know's next to nothing about the lands he wishes to... liberate from the Dominion, so obviously there would be a bit of a wait.

   Judy and her squad made their way to Dr. Michel’s office… and found her being menaced by thugs, and the turian they were looking for crouching out of sight. “I didn’t tell anyone I swear!” Dr. Michel said; she was a rabbit not unlike Judy, but colored white.

   “Smart little cottontail, now if Garrus or any of his buddies from C-Sec ask, you keep your cute little mouth shut or- Who are you?” The wolf thug said as he grabbed Dr. Michael by the ears, and drew a gun on Judy and her squad. This hostage situation was cut short, as Garrus took the opportunity to shoot the thug in the head.

   “Get to cover!” Judy shouted as a fire fight broke out in the clinic. Eventually the mammal thugs were dealt with.

   “Thanks’ Hopps for that opening; gave me a clear shot at that son of a bitch.” Garrus said gratefully. Judy simply inhaled sharply.

   “You could have gotten the hostage killed, even if she wasn’t at head level with that wolf!” Judy said in irritation to Garrus.

   “There wasn’t time to think, I wasn’t going to-… Dr. Michel, are you okay?” Garrus asked.

   “Oui, officer Vakarian, thanks to you to of course.” Dr. Michel said to Judy with a French accent.

   “Do you know who those mammals were working for? We might be able to protect you from their boss.” Judy said.

   “Oui, they work for Hoof. They didn’t want me to tell mousier Garrus about the quarian.” Dr. Michel explained.

   “And does this have anything to do with Saren?” Judy asked.

   “It could, Dr. Michel what happened?” Garrus said.

   “A few days ago, a quarian came to my office. She had been shot, and wouldn’t tell me what had happened. I could tell she was scarred, on the run from dangerous people no doubt. She asked me about the Shadow Broker, said she wanted to trade information for protection.” Dr. Michel explained.

   “And where is she now?” Judy asked.

   “I put her into contact with Hoof; he’s an agent of the Shadow Broker.” Dr. Michel said.

   “Sorry to say doc, but Hoof has thrown in his lot with Saren now. And the Shadow Broker isn’t happy with his change of loyalties.” Garrus said.

   “What?... that ass, even for Hoof that’s stupid! Saren must have made Hoof quite the offer to betray the Shadow Broker!” Dr. Michel said.

   “And that quarian must have something Saren wants. Something worth stepping on the Shadow Brokers toes.” Garrus said.

   “And what about the quarian?” Judy asked.

   “She just wanted to trade information… information about geth!” Dr. Michel said.

   “Yes… information that could link Saren to the geth! There is no way the Council can just ignore it!” Garrus said.

   “Agreed, let’s pay Hoof a visit.” Judy said.

   “And I’m coming with you.” Garrus said.

   “Excuse me? Why would you want to come with me... and why should I for that matter? I mean you’re both turians.” Judy asked.

   “He’s a traitor to the Council, and a disgrace to my people! I knew what was going on, but thanks to meddling by the Executor and his damned Specter Status, I couldn’t get all the evidence I needed in my investigation. So yeah, I hate him… I hate his gizzard.” Garrus ranted.

   “Welcome aboard Garrus. I’m certain we’ll be friends soon enough.” Judy said.

   “Perhaps… but we’re not the only ones after Hoof. The Shadow Broker hired a krogan mercenary by the name of Wrex to take him out.” Garrus said.

   “I think I saw Wrex talking to a bouncer… at Chora’s Den… wait he owns that place?” Ashley asked.

   “Regardless, a korgan might come in handy. There like rhino’s but more violent right?” Judy asked.

   “Last I heard he was at the C-Sec academy.” Garrus said.

   “You have an academy next to your HQ... how convenient, he looking to get into C-Sec?” Nick said.

   “Doubtful, from what I heard Hoof accused him of making threats. So he’s most likely there for an interrogation. If we hurry, we can catch him before he moves again.” Garrus said.

   “Let’s get a move on then, Davies. I’m sorry to disturb you, but I need you to monitor my squad.” Judy said.

   “Investigation getting hairy, or do you just miss your dear brother despite less than a day going by? Either way, I’m going to turn on the monitoring equipment.” Davies said.

   “Understood, by the way, there’s a turian C-Sec Officer wanting to help us. Can you patch him into squad comms?” Judy asked.

   “I got a turian bio-signature right next to you, that him?” Davies asked.

   “Yeah that’s him.” Judy said.

   “Commander… who are you talking to?” Garrus asked.

   “That would be me, Mr.?”

   “Garrus, Garrus Vakarian.” Garrus answered.

   “Well anyway Officer Vakarian, I’m Specialist Davies Hopps, Judy’s twin brother. My job is to make sure my sister survives, and gets whatever help she needs to complete a mission. Also, do not wander off to do your own thing, blunder into enemy fire, or use software to block my equipment to monitor you. You do all that, and you’ll have better survival odds then the last two shmucks who died on Eden Prime. Also, this stuff detects vitals… and makes a loud beep noise that I really, REALLY hate. So don’t die on me, if only to spare my especially sensitive hearing.” Davies said at length.

   “Fair enough, that one of the first things they teach you at the academy anyway.” Garrus said, just rolling with the eccentric sounding rabbit.

   “Before you go, Commander… thank you, for saving my life from those thugs.” Dr. Michel said.

   “Just doing my job doc, I may be back latter to check up on you, or just ask questions.” Judy said as she and her squad left.

~~~~

   “Man this place can get you turned around, I think we walked past at least three times before we got here.” Nick said as the squad arrived at C-Sec Academy.

   “Well if you were following me, we’d have already left by now.” Garrus said.

   “It’s my first time here! Cut me some slack for not knowing my way around the massive space station!” Judy said.

   “Now Wrex, are we going to have further problems with you and Hoof?” A coyote C-Sec officer asked of the krogan.

   “Let me check…” Wrex said as he accessed his omni-tool. “Bounty still up, so I ain’t leaving till I collect it, that alright by you puppy?” Wrex asked condescendingly.

   “Watch your tongue! Or I just might eat it!” The coyote spat back, barring his teeth.

   “Hmm… all bark and no bite. Like so many of you mammals.” Wrex said as he left.

   “Let it go Cortez, he’s not worth it.” A turian officer said to the coyote.

   “You Wrex?” Judy asked.

   “Yep.” Wrex said.

   “Well here’s the thing, Hoof works for Saren, your trying to get to Hoof. I’m trying to get dirt on Saren that’ll cost him his Specter Status. I think we can help each other.” Judy said.

   “Hmm… so you are Commander Hopps. Though that depends, how much do you know?” Wrex asked

   “He’s after a quarian that has evidence that could link Saren to the geth, so she went to Hoof but he sold her out to Saren. That everything, or am I missing any details?” Judy asked.

   “Not really, that’s about everything. Now you help me kill Hoof, and the quarians all yours.” Wrex asked.

~~~~

   Judy and her squad returned to Chora’s Den. However, instead of a friendly coffee shop, they were met with armed thugs gunning for them. “Okay, can someone tell me SOMETHING about Hoof?! Because it baffles me that someone turned a dive bar into a coffee shop, AND worked for the Shadow Broker? I’m sorry, but this whole situation is getting a bit silly!” Judy said as they dove into cover.

   “Not entirely sure, some mule… or donkey, could never tell the difference. Bought the place, and renovated Chora’s Den. Not sure why the name was kept.” Garrus said.

   “Either way, there a couple of things you need to understand about mammals Monocle, first referring to a wolf or any other type of Canine as a ‘son of a bitch’ or just ‘bitch’ isn’t really an insult it’s more of a descriptor. Unless you’re talking about my mother, in which case I will claw off your face and make it into a cape. Same goes for referring to a donkey or anything like as an ‘ass’.” Nick said.

   “Guys it’s nice that you’re having a conversation, but we kind of have pressing matters!” Judy said, the squad made their way through Chora’s Den, eventually reaching to Hoof’s personal quarters.

   “Stop, don’t come any closer!” A mammal warehouse said.

   “You know you should really find a safer place to work. I mean you’d think a coffee shop was the safest place in the universe… it obviously isn’t, this one at least.” Judy said.

   “Fair enough… Hoof doesn’t pay us enough for this anyway.” One of the warehouse workers said as they left.

   “Well… I’m impressed.” Garrus said.

   “As a wise mammal was said, there are alternatives to fighting.” Nick said sagely.

   Judy and her squad entered Hoof’s office. A firefight broke out as a number of turrets sprung up. It wasn’t long before Hoof was on the floor and the turrets were destroyed. “Don’t shoot! I surrender! I surrender!” Hoof brayed in terror.

   “Okay, I’ll make you deal. You tell me where the quarian is and I don’t shoot.” Judy said as she pulled a pistol on Hoof.

   “I don’t know where she is, I swear! That’s the truth!” Hoof said in panic.

   “Wow… you are the WORST liar I’ve ever met.” Nick said in disbelief.

   “And as he’ll be the first to tell you. I absolutely HATE being lied to. So either tell us where the quarian is, or you’ll lose your knee caps.” Judy said angrily.

   “Look, she’s not here. She said that she’d only deal with the Shadow Broker himself. Thing is, nobody sees the Shadow Broker in person. Even I don’t know who he really is. But she didn’t know that. So I set up a meeting, little does that suit rat know. Is that Saren’s men are waiting for her.” Hoof said as he stood up. Judy promptly pistol-whipped him in the knee.

   “Location, tell me now!” Judy said as she pressed her gun into Hoof’s face.

   “Back alley by the markets… she’s supposed to meet at them, at the back alley by the markets in the Wards. If… you hurry you can catch them.” Hoof said in pain.

   “And should I let you go because...?” Judy said clearly angry with the donkey.

   “I came clean on the meeting! Besides… I got bigger problems then you cottontail.” Hoof said.

   “Don’t let it get to you Carrots. We got a quarian to rescue… and one of his problems is a krogan bounty hunter.” Nick said.

~~~~

   “Did you bring it?” A turian asked of a quarian women in a red tinted alleyway.

   “That depends, where’s the Shadow Broker? Or Hoof for that matter?” The quarian asked.

   “They’ll be here soon enough. Now where’s the evidence?” The turian asked as he moved his hand down the quarians arm.

   “No, the deals off.” The quarian said as she jumped back and threw a grenade amidst the salarians that were with the turian.

   “CONTACT!” Judy shouted as she jump-kicked the turian, and her squad helped the quarian with her assailants.

   “Keelah, that bosh’tet Hoof set me up!” The quarian said angrily.

   “Miss, were you hurt?” Judy asked.

   “I know how to take care of myself. Not that I don’t appreciate the help. But who are you?” The quarian asked.

   “Judy Hopps and I’m looking for evidence to prove that Saren is a traitor to the Council.” Judy said.

   “Already met, and I have a way to repay you for saving my life. But… we should go somewhere else.” The quarian said.

   “Well back to the embassy. Lionheart will want to hear this… assuming he isn’t fuming about the mess we made getting here.” Nick said.

~~~~

   “Hopps… you have one minute to explain why you started a war down in the Wards...! also, why did you bring a quarian here?” Lionheart asked.

   “She has the evidence to link Saren to the geth.” Judy said.

   “Really?! Please, how did you get this evidence miss… miss?” Lionheart said.

   “My name is Tali’Zorah nar Rayya.” Tali said.

   “And what brings you so far from the Flotilla?” Lionheart asked.

   “I’m on Pilgrimage. It’s rather a long story, but while on a remote world, I came across some geth, and I managed to recover one of their memory cores before it could fry itself. The only data I could recover was audio… but it had some interesting contents. Listen for yourself.” Tali said as she accessed one of these audio files.

   “Eden Prime was a major victory! The beacon has brought us one step closer to finding the Conduit.” Saren’s voice said. Then Bogo, who was standing nearby… smiled, something Judy wasen’t entirely sure how to feel about.

   “That was Saren! We’ve got that raptor now.” Bogo said.

   “Any ideas on what this Conduit could be?” Judy asked, trying to distract herself from the oddity that was, smiling Bogo.

   “Some manner of Prothean tech?” Bogo speculated.

   “And that’s not all.” Tali said.

   “And one step closer to the return of the Reapers.” A woman’s voice said.

   “Okay… that doesn’t really answer anything. Who was that talking about Reapers?” Lionheart asked.

   “Agreed, some new alien species?” Judy asked.

   “According to some of the files, there a hyper advanced race that hunted the Protheans to total extinction...! And then left, at least that’s what the geth apparently believe.” Tali said.

   “That honestly sounds hard to believe. It just makes so little sense.” Lionheart said.

   “Perhaps… but that could explain the vision from Eden Prime. It was showing me the Protheans being exterminated by the Reapers!” Judy said.

   “The geth worship the Reapers as gods, believing them to be the pinnacle of synthetic life. That Saren is some manner of prophet for their return.” Tali said.

   “Let’s… try not to bring up these Reapers to the Council, shall we?” Lionheart said nervously.

   “But they could be an even greater threat then Saren and the geth!” Judy said.

   “Regardless of the Reapers, this proves that Saren is a traitor!” Bogo said.

   “Agreed, we must get this evidence to the Council immediately!” Lionheart said.

   “And what about… sorry sweaty I already forgot your name.” Nick said teasingly.

   “Just call me Tali! And you saw me in that alley Commander, I can be of help to you.” Tali said.

   “I’m not certain… I know enough about the Pilgrimage to know how important it is. Shouldn’t I get parents’ permission for you to come?” Judy asked.

   “And it proves our willing to give of ourselves to the greater good. Tell me, what does it say about me if I turn my back on this? Saren and the geth are a threat to the entire galaxy, my Pilgrimage can wait.” Tali asked, Judy smiled warmly at the young quarian.

   “I think we’ll get along just fine Tali.” Judy said.

   “Thank you for having me Commander.” Tali said happily.

   “Just call me Judy.” Judy said.

   “Bogo and I get things ready with the Council. Feel free to take a break until then.” Lionheart said as he and Bogo left. Then Judy, Ashley, Garrus, and Nick sat down and panted in exhaustion.

   “This… was a long day.” Nick said.

   “Agreed… in hindsight, doing arrends for people was probably… probably not one of my better ideas.” Judy said.

   “Why… why was my species cursed to not have sweat glands?” Ashley asked, her tongue hanging out of her mouth.

   “I could put you through a krogan workout, might make you stronger, or it might kill you.” Wrek said sardonically, the only one of them not tired.

   “Where would we even get a Thresher Maw, krogan?” Garrus said.

   “You’d be surprised where you can find Thresher Maws in this galaxy.” Wrex said.

~~~~

   Later on, Judy and her squad had returned to the Citadel Tower. “Judy, Lionheart is already presenting the quarians evidence to the Council. Come on.” Bogo said as he and Judy went further up.

    The recording was played for the Council. “You believe us now? Or do we have to hunt down yet another alien minority for evidence? Like a drell for example… those are few and far between right?” Lionheart said.

   “Further evidence isn’t necessary ambassador. This proves that Saren is a traitor, and rest assured Saren will be stripped of his status and he will be brought to justice.” The turian Councilor said.

   “And the other voice… that was Matriarch Benezia.” Councilor Tevos said.

   “And she is?” Judy asked.

   “Put simply, Matriarchs are the elders of the asari people. Matriarch Benezia in particular is a powerful biotic and she has many followers. She will make a formidable alley for Saren.” Councilor Tevos explained.

   “And what about these Reapers, what do you know about them?” The salarian Councilor asked.

   “Not much, but apparently there a race of machines that wiped out the Protheans, and then they just left.” Bogo said.

   “Yes, apparently the geth believe them to be gods. In turn they believe that Saren is the prophet for their return.” Judy said.

   “We think the Conduit is the key to bringing them back. Saren’s searching for it, and why he attacked Eden Prime.” Bogo said.

   “And what of the Conduit itself, what is it?” The salarian Councilor asked.

   “No idea, but if Saren thinks it can bring back the Reapers, that’s reason enough to think it’s bad.” Judy said.

   “Do you not realize what you’re saying? Saren wants to bring back machines that destroyed all organic life. It has to be impossible! And for that matter, where did they go? Why did they vanish? And why has there been no evidence to support their existence? If they ever existed, we would have found something by now!” The turian Councilor ranted.

   “Hey, I gave fair warning about Saren! Please don’t make a repeat performance.” Judy said in annoyance.

   “Regardless, you proved that Saren is a traitor, and he is using the geth to find the Conduit, though we don’t know for what purpose.” Councilor Tevos said.

   “Obviously the Reapers are some manner of smokescreen Commander, a lie Saren invented to control the geth.” The salarian Councilor said.

   “With all due respect, Councilor, I’ve seen the Reapers slaughter! Fifty-thousand years ago they destroyed the Protheans! If Saren finds the Conduit, it will happen again!” Judy said angrily.

   “Then I would love to see him try. Saren no longer has the rights or the resources of the Specter’s, and his on the run for his life.” The turian Councilor said.

   “And you think that’s going to cut it?! Give Saren a pink slip? You know damn well he’s hiding in the Traverse! Send your fleet in! And hunt him down like the mongrel he is!” Lionheart declared angrily.

   “A fleet cannot hunt down one man Ambassador.” The salarian Councilor said.

   “For the love of… a Citadel fleet could secure the entire Attican Traverse. Keep the geth from attacking any more colonies! Mammal and alien alike! It’s a win-win for everyone!” Lionheart said.

   “Or it could trigger war with the Terminus Systems! The Citadel Council will not be dragged into a galactic war over a relative handful of mammal colonies!” The turian Councilor said.

   “Every time we ask for help, you bury your heads in the sand and pretend everything is alright!” Judy said in agrivation.

   “Agreed Hopps, and I am beyond fed up with the Council and its anti-mammalian bull-”

   “Ambassador control yourself, there is a solution, one that doesn’t require fleets or armies to stop Saren and the geth!” Councilor Tevos said.

   “Tevos… you cannot be serious! Mammalkind simply isn’t ready for the responsibilities that come with joining the Specters!” The turian Councilor objected.

   “Look, Councilors. It seems like a pretty simple solution to me. The ambassador gets his Specter, you don’t have to send a fleet near the Traverse and risk war. Seems like a genuine win-win to me. Or are you reluctant, because the most qualified candidate barely comes up to your knees?” Judy said.

   The Councilor gave each other meaningful glances, and then they pressed buttons on their consoles. “Commander Hopps, stand forward.” Councilor Tevos said, Judy so towards the edge of the platform before the Council. There were hushed whispers from onlookers. “It is the decision of the Council, that you. Commander Judith Lavern Hopps, be granted all the rights and privileges of the Special Tactics and Reconnaissance branch of the Citadel.” Councilor Tevos said.

   “Specters are not trained, but chosen. Individuals forged in the fire of service and battle, those whose actions elevate them above the rank and file.” The salarian Councilor said.

   “Specters are an ideal, a symbol, the embodiment of courage, determination, and self-reliance. The right hand of the Council, instruments of our will.” Councilor Tevos said.

   “Specters bare a great burden. They are protectors of galactic peace, both our first and last line of defense. The safety of the galaxy is theirs to uphold.” The turian Councilor said.

   “You are the first mammal, and by extension the first rabbit Specter. This is a great accomplishment for you and your entire species.” Councilor Tevos said.

   “Thank you, really I am.” Judy said gratefully.

   “And for your first mission, you’re to go into the Traverse to find Saren. As a fugitive from the Council, and a rogue Specter, you are authorized to use whatever means to apprehend or eliminate him.” The salarian Councilor said.

   “Was already planning to go after him, but do you have any leads on him that I can use?” Judy asked.

   “We will forward all relevant data to Ambassador Lionheart.” The turian Councilor said.

   “This meeting of the Council is adjourned.” Councilor Tevos said.

   “Hopps, I’m so proud of you right now.” Bogo said happily, shaking Judy’s paw.

   “Likewise for me, but now we got more work to do. We have to get you a ship, crew, supplies… what are some of your preferences for snacks?” Lionheart said.

   “More importantly, you’ll get access to exclusive training and equipment. I believe that there’s a requisitions offer down at the C-Sec Academy that can provide you with both.” Bogo said.

   “Bogo, we’ve got some… things to work out. And I need your help to set everything up.” Lionheart said as he and Bogo left the chamber.

   “Typical politician, kitty doesn’t even give a thank you.” Ashley said bitterly.

   “I just got the job Williams. I basically haven’t done anything till I either bring in or kill Saren. Now lets get a move on.” Judy said.

   “Till the gates of Hell, Carrots, till the gates of Hell.” Nick said.

   “Come on you sentimental fox.” Judy said teasingly.

   

Mammal Effect: Citadel Part II
Judy and company track down evidence of Saren's treason... also a bit of a confession. It's been years since I've actually played Mass Effect. So I've... been taking notes from someones walk-through.

    Sixty years passed since the Reaper War’s end.

   In that time, the species of the Milky Way galaxy had rebuilt much of what had been destroyed by the Reapers.

   The krogan had been reborn as the United Clans of Tuchanka, with firm population control laws, and surprisingly healthy relationships with the turians and the salarians. They were ready to reclaim their place they had lost in the galaxy in the fires of the Krogan Rebellion.

   The rachni had reestablished themselves on their deserted homeworld of Suen, though smaller than other galactic realms, even at their prime before the Rachni War. They were fairly content to simply live.

   The Batarian Hegemony had been reorganized into the Parliamentary Assembly of Khar’shan. Made up of the survivors of the batarian military from the Reaper War, they largely abolished slavery under the belief that the practice had made the batarian people weak by and large. Not to mention the almost ridiculous amount of power that the batarian nobility had over the old hegemony.

   The numbers of the elcor had been restored to the stable numbers from before the Reaper War by the Phoenix Program.

   The volus were finally given recognition for establishing galactic commerce, and for their help in turn with reestablishing the galactic credit in the aftermath of the war

   The drell had been granted independence from the hanar, and a number of drell had been allowed to recolonize there desolate homeworld of Rahkana, alongside those of their people that remained from the hanar sponsored exodus. As well as being granted the resources to restore Rahkana’s environment by the Coalition.

   Fortunes of the hanar… took a strange turn. As in the wars aftermath, Javik, one of Commander Shepherd’s squad mates during the war, and the last of the Protheans. Along with a number of Awoken Collectors, Prothean husks that had been liberated from the thrall of the Reaper Harbinger, had usurped the leadership of Kahje. Appointing themselves as god-kings over the hanar, permitting those drell that wished to live by their own accord to leave the hanar homeworld, then after that, the Protheans began eating hanar sacrifices. Mainly criminals or volunteers that believed it an honor to be eaten, this also forced a number of hanar to disperse into the wider galaxy from there homeworld, many losing faith in there ‘Enkindler’ gods, to say nothing of the revelations regarding the Reapers, the Cycles, and the Mass Relays.

   The quarians immune systems had healed enough to live without there environmental suits. Though the still wore outfits influenced by their ancestors garb, in memory of their long exile from Rannoch.

   The geth in turn became valuable members of the galactic community, both as builders and as soldiers.

   The Protheans, as you’ve just red had taken over Kahje. In galactic affairs they largely kept to themselves. Aside from raiding supplies from the Coalition, specifically to acquire materials from the Phoenix Program, and try to restore the Prothean race to a sustainable breeding population. There ultimate ambition is unclear, but many believe that the Protheans would attempt to reassert their dominance over the galaxy. Regardless of the truth of the matter, Kahje is considered a rogue world. With a number of the surviving hanar colonies seceding from there homeworld, rather than bend the knee (so to speak) to obvious tyrants.

   As for the Council races, asari, salarians, turians and humans, there homeworlds were rebuilt from the ashes of the Reaper War.

   But this story isn’t about the rebuilding of the galaxy from the ashes of apocalyptic war.

   For the past fifty years, since the Coalition leadership had learned that the Andromeda Initiative. An organization that had been created to settle the distant Andromeda galaxy, under the pretense of extra-galactic exploration and building new lives in the new galaxy, but in reality it was an attempt by clandestine groups to save most of the Milky Way’s species and civilizations from the Reapers.

   In that time the geth had been constructing a powerful Mass Relay to enable travel to the distant galaxy. To reunite with the colonists, and in turn to try to help them against a hostile species called the kett.

   The year is now 2246.

   And John Shepherd, the hero of the Reaper War, stood on an observation platform before a ship under construction. It was the new flagship of the Galactic Coalition, replacing the Destiny Ascension that had been retired long ago, the Phoenix Paragon. An enormous Dreadnaught/Carrier hybrid constructed with geth technology and labor.

   Inspired in part by the geth Dreadnaught that served in the geth defense of Rannoch during the Reaper War, this colossal ship was not only a technological marvel and a powerhouse in its own right. But also as a symbol that even bloodied and broken, the Milky Way would stand tall in the face of any opposition against the survival of their civilizations.

   “Quite a sight, ain’t it?” A volus said, meeting up with Shepherd.

   “Var Tethic, you’re the one that funded this project.” Shepherd said.

   “Yep… I think we met in person a few times while this thing was being built. Think it’s been about five years we’ve been working on the Phoenix Paragon. But yeah, my name is on most of the checks that payed for this big tub.” Var Tethic said

   “It’s the biggest and most powerful warship in the entire galaxy. But we have accounted for sabotage right?” Shepherd asked.

   “Pretty sure, even then, with your reputation nobody would dare try to interfere with this project. Probably any potential saboteurs thought that they’d get thrown out the nearest airlock by you personally.” Var Tethic explained.

   “I’m old Var, we humans may have longer lifespans then back before we discovered the Charon Relay and made our way into the galaxy at large. But still, I think I’ve more than earned my retirement. So I’m not throwing anyone out of airlocks anytime soon.” Shepherd said.

   “Well anyway. It should be ready for its maiden voyage in just a few more days, but… where to first? I mean I helped pay for it. I don’t really understand why I should pay geth workers. But I think I’d like to know where my investment is going.” Var Tethic said.

   “That’s… classified.” Shepherd said.

    “Come on, it’s my money. And I want to know where this ship’ll be going to first. Is it to liberate Kahje from Javik and the Reborn Protheans?” Var Tethic asked. Shepherd merely glared at the volus. “Uh… never mind. I’ll just see myself off.” Var Tethic said as he left Shepherd alone on the observation platform.

   In the sixty years since the wars end. Shepherd had married Liara T’soni, and had three daughters with her. Unfortunately, Liara had disappeared while on an archeological dig to what was thought to be the long lost and forgotten homeworld of the Protheans.

   Since then Shepherd had remarried and had human children with a human women. Then a human woman showed up behind Shepherd. She had black hair in a short messy haircut, nearly pitch black skin, and blue eyes. The woman was also wearing N7 armor.

   “Ah… you must be Commander Sierra, you’ll be leading the grounds missions for the Phoenix Paragon right?” Shepherd asked of the young women.

   “Yes sir, I’ll be in charge of leading ground missions for the Phoenix Paragon. Where will our first mission be if you don’t mind my asking?” Commander Sierra said.

   “You’ll find out when we get there. Till then, get to know your squad. You might find that they’ll be the best friends you’ll ever have.” Shepherd said.

   “I’ll… make the attempt sir.” Sierra said.

   “That’s good, and do you know if the Phoenix Paragon is ready to depart?” Shepherd asked.

   “I don’t know a specific time sir.” Sierra said.

   “Fair enough, still until we do leave. You should be aboard to speak with some of your squad mates.” Shepherd said.

   “I understand sir; I’ll be aboard the Phoenix Paragon.” Sierra said, eventually she was aboard the massive warship, meeting up with two of her squad mates. Both of them were human men.

   “Commander Sierra, I was wondering when we’d get to meet you in person.” The first of them said, a man glowing with biotic powers and a Russian accent.

   “So you’re my biotic?” Sierra asked.

   “My name is Ivan Olaf Alexander, and yes. I am biotic, but I do not believe we know each other well enough to say that I am yours or other way around da?” Ivan said at length.

   “Ivan, it’s not nice to mess with people’s heads like that.” The second man said, fiddling with his omni-tool.

   “Calm yourself Tim is all in good humor. Nothing sinister on my part… or is it?!” Ivan said.

   “Regardless… do either of you know where our first official mission will be?” Sierra asked.

   “Not a clue, though the only place we could go would probably the hanar homeworld of Kahje. Heard a lot of bad things about the Protheans are doing… reason enough to go in guns blazing I say.” Tim said.

   “Agreed tovarishch, but we don’t know for certain that we will be going there.” Ivan said.

   “Attention all hands. This is your captain, John Shepherd.” Shepherd said over the ships comm systems.

   “Think we’ll get a straight-forward explanation sir?” Tim said to Sierra. “It’s not my place to speculate… though I imagine that is what he is about to do.” Sierra said.

   “We will be leading a Coalition fleet to liberate Kahje, the hanar homeworld from the Reborn Protheans. For years Javik has been a thorn in the side of the Coalition. Stealing from Coalition supply fleets, to say nothing of the Protheans barbaric treatment of the hanar on Kahje itself, and we’ll show Javik and his followers that though the Protheans live again, there time ruling our galaxy as its uncontested rulers is over. Keep in mind, this is not merely a mission of liberation… but I want to reach out to an old friend, convince him that what he is doing is wrong. But if he refuses to listen to reason… you all know what must be done, John Shepherd out.” Shepherd said at length.

   “Well… so we are going after the Last Prothean.” Tim said.

   “I want you two to begin training with me. I for one don’t know how long the voyage to Kahje will be, but we must be ready to face Javik and his forces.” Sierra commanded.
