Voice: Hunting a Killer

Specifics

She came in the middle of the night. A messenger, obscured by shadow, displayed the intricate designs upon her forearm. Interlocking patterns formed a larger picture that indicated her membership and rank within the Society.

You had been accepted.

The messenger handed you a rolled parchment and departed without a word. The parchment contained a hand written and encrypted message that detailed your instructions.

You were tasked to travel to Nar Shaddaa and determine the circumstances surrounding the recent death of Orv Dessxr d'Tana. The Herald of the Brotherhood had been executed in the street and his body was destroyed beyond recognition. His recon and extraction teams were missing and intelligence indicated they were still on Nar Shaddaa. It is unknown if they participated in the Herald's execution, but both teams had gone off the grid.

You are to uncover the location of the teams and determine their role in the Death of Orv Dessrx. The members of each team are highly trained specialists who have served the Dark Council for years. Despite their inability to use the Force, they are deadly combatants and capable of engaging Force Users.

You may follow any additional leads that you uncover and the fate of the teams is left to your discretion. You will report back to the Society through a pre-arranged dead drop on Antei.

This will be my first fiction written with the new persona. I wanted to change things up a bit, which is why I decided to write in the first person format and delve more into the thoughts and feelings of the character.

I plan to make any official fictions I write as Kincaid part of an ongoing series of adventures that will define the character, and hope to intersect with major events (Crusade/GJW) in the future.

Hopefully it all works out :P

Probably still a longer entry than most, but no worse than any of my Crusade fictions. Be glad for that, since my outline capped out at 6000+ words... I was worried this was going to get insanely long.
