      Dust and Danger (Open)


      0 Not allowed!
      Gathering more of her latest crop in the garden, outside the main walls of the temple, Lykeira placed them delicately into the leather satchel at her right side. Her leather vest vainly covering the intricate tattoo commanding her abdomen, she hadn't had many reasons to add more to it's black, tribal lines in a while. The latest foray being a trip to Manaan seeking out her mother or fellow Pachmari elders. One having been found, she ended up escaping but not before the Sith Lord had gained more information on those that had once been in command of a large number of dark side witches. One day, Lykeira promised herself, she would have the codex possessed by the Elder Mother. A search that continued.

      But, until that day, she continued experimenting with various poisons and herbs grown here in the garden.

      Rising, she perused the other flowers and plants within her own side of the large furrows and bordered lane. Many would be ready in a week or so, she mused. Turning, hazel green eyes rose to the far side of the garden, once kept by another of their order who delved in elixirs as well. Though they had never traded notes, Lykeira knew that most of her own concoctions were superior and had proven them on numerous occasions. Some of the failed disciples of the Sith temple having been her test subjects. Some too stupid to protect themselves against her coercion, or even seduction in some cases, they deserved their end and the witch got the results she hoped for, or went back to the drawing board. In some cases, she even gained a result that she hadn't expected. Everything effected certain races and genders differently.

      Moving toward the main door leading into the atrium, the cinnamon toned witch gazed out across the verdant mountains and then down to Rama's. If ever she wanted a larger audience for her elixirs, that dive would be the best place to test it, she grinned darkly.

      Antony then opened the door which lead to the atrium before he would head outside to the gardens. Today he wanted to note since it had been a few days since he'd returned from Bastion and wanted to see what results had occurred in the plants here and note how they'd grown and what blooms would be sprouting soon. Smiling while he walked with his datapad in hand to take note, the Sith Apprentice then saw the cinnamon witch and nodded to her before he walked into the open air. Knowing that she had knowledge more then he did of poisons and elixirs though he was just more into studying all the plants that he could. Sure at times Antony would delve into such things but today wasn't one of them. At the time such as this he was just noting their growth and what was about to bloom and what would bloom in a short amount of time.

      He then headed toward the gardens which were around the temple and a few not far from it. Smiling he then breathed in the fresh air through his nose and let it out in a sigh. It was quite a nice day he had to agree and with that set off for the few gardens which housed only flowers. No such poisons or anything of that nature. Antony would make his way there, but, at this moment that is what his focus was on. Not that he minded what anyone else thought. This was his time to do what he wished and he would make the best of today. Whatever would happen. As he walked he heard the deep sigh from the Dark Passenger in his mind and the Apprentice then rolled his eyes. Wondering what stupid sentence would come out of it's mouth.

      What fruitless thing are you doing now, Antony? It said walking next to him.

      None of your freaking business that's what! He spoke into his head back to it.

      The exit of the son of Icarus caught Lykeira offguard initially and she glanced to the strange kid who had gained entry to the temple on his father's name, or so she had been led to believe. Brow furrowed as he then walked out into another section of the garden that fronted the large complex. Turning toward him, she grinned wryly, "You out here picking flowers for some girl," she inquired, her judgmental tone one of her signature traits. Though she had never seen him around any females that often, the cruel joke would be lost on most.

      Antony then turned his head to look at Lykeira as her judgemental tone didn't go unnoticed. Snorting when she asked if he was picking flowers for a girl he shook his head no. Truth be told he wasn't looking for anything of the sort since his relationship with Gianna went south. That was probably thanks to his father he assumed. She was being taught by him and no doubt his own father had somehow sabotaged his life in that aspect. His father would pay for it one day or another. Sure, some would assume that he'd only gained access to the Sith because his father's name and his father's position as one of the respected members of the Sith. That wasn't the case however. Antony proved himself many times that he wasn't his father and that he would carve a path better then his own father.

      "You assume too much, Lordess." Antony said his tone didn't convey praise nor did it condone it was just pure monotone, "Maybe I'm here because these things interest me."

      She chuckled at his initial reply, her boredom and distractions with the daily schedule not planning for any diversions and though she hadn't ever been around Antony or his father beyond seeing them in the dining hall, she knew enough. Nor was she privy to his training, though she had some ideas since his father was more militant, like herself.

      "You looking to learn about flora, or just a passing interest out of boredom?"

      "I know enough. Botany is a hobby of mine." Antony said looking in her direction before looking at one of the plants in front of him.

      Taking a measurement of it he then made a few faces while looking it over. After he noted that it grew about 6 inches and then a foot in diameter he then took his datapad and wrote it down. Looking to the blooming flower next to it he then hunched down in front of it and took a measurement of that as well. It seemed they were growing quite well in the soil here on Munto Codru. From what the young man heard they were transported here from Felucia. Still, he had to admit the climate was a bit different from Felucia but it was growing nonetheless. The Apprentice ran his fingers into the dirt and took some into his hand. Noting the clay like texture of it the man sprinkled it back onto where he'd grabbed hold of it before standing back up.

      "That's all I needed to see of these ones." Antony said writing a few things on his datapad before sticking it under his arm.

      Ah...this one be one of the Dathomir witches...how quaint! The Dark Passenger spoke to Antony standing next to him and chuckling.

      Oh how quaint it would be if you shut the frell up! He said back to it in his own thoughts.

      Walking over towards another bunch he then tilted his head looking at them. Though he wasn't physically looking at Lykeria, the Dark Passenger was. Some use of the Force obviously although Antony kept looking at the thorn bush in front of him, the darker part of him was looking her over. Trying to read her and see what it could gather of her. Of course, neither had met one another and in truth Antony didn't care to. Although she inquired about what he was doing, he'd only give an answer in a simple way or using the least amount of words to do so.

      Easily hearing the mental argument going on in the boy's mind, Lykeira's brow furrowed at the thought that one of his voices stated. "I'm not from Dathomir," she blurted. "Never been there, in fact." She moved toward the plants and flowers that he was examining, grinning wryly at his supposed investigation. In the Force, her gift having manifested itself only around flora, she motioned with an upraised chin to the plant he noted first.

      "Did you know how that's used? Certain properties that it has? Various uses for the leaves or root?" Moving to his side, hazel green eyes glanced at his datapad, "What kind of notes are you taking, anyway?"

      Antony then turned his head to her as she apparently heard what he was arguing about in his own head as the Dark Passenger stood behind her and stuck it's middle finger up at her. Looking at it then back at her he actually smiled at what it did. For the one time it did something that he thought was amusing. Otherwise, Antony thought it was quite an annoying thing. Sure, he was some kind of crazy alright but in truth it was...deeper then that. A by product of having a twin brother and one day your brother leaving to be on his own. Truth be told he and Jaden were always together before then. When they were old enough they took separate paths. Obviously, Antony chose the path their dad did. Jaden however chose to be a Jedi and help their father. Which Antony knew was a lost cause. Though James favored Jaden over him. Or so he figured anyways.

      Ignoring what Lykeria said about not being on Dathomir at all, he then shrugged and looked back at the thorn bush. Noting how long each particular thorn was he wondered if they'd grow long enough that if one by accident brushed past it how many thorns would stab into them. Something Antony thought would be amusing to witness. While Lykeria asked if he knew what it was used for he then nodded his head. He knew of course but it wasn't something he would take interest in at the moment till he wanted to. For now, he was just admiring them and how much they'd grown and they seem to flourish on the planet.

      It was then that he felt her eyes on his datapad to which he then shut it off and stood up. Turning his hazel eyed gaze the jet black hair like his father's then fell around his face which he brushed aside with one hand. Narrowing his eyes at her the Sith Apprentice then made a sneer. He hated someone looking over his shoulder! Antony's father did that enough and it reminded him of that when Lykeria did so. To which he would point that out.

      "It ain't nice to look over someone's shoulder you know?" He said with more of an annoyed tone, "I hate when people do that! Bad enough my dad does that...don't need no one else doing the same. What do you want anyways? Are you that bored you have to bother me?"

      His indignant attitude prompted her gaze to narrow as she squared on him, "I'm a Sith Lord, boy," she warned. "Watch your tone." She knew that most that lived here in the temple had grown proud and arrogant, to a degree with their training, though there was still a hierarchy and respect was demanded by those who had earned it, and so far he hadn't been around long enough. Regardless of who his father was. The witch wasn't intimidated by a name and had earned her stripes. Soaking in the Force, her hazel green eyes soon brightened to a fiery red, daring the younger student to try her.

      Let me handle this! The Dark Passenger spoke to Antony standing next to him, Let me take control for once! Either you let me or I'll force my way!

      Fine! Antony said back to it keeping his mind shielded from Lykeria.

      In what seemed like a moment Antony breathed in through his nose as she had spoken about her title which mattered not to him. Titles were one thing, and, since he didn't know her nor did he care to know what her blabbering on about being respected he had none for those types. Just because of a title she thought herself superior. He would see! Sure she had command of the Force greater then he but in truth Antony knew he could outsmart her in other ways. Out duel her and she would see then that he wasn't someone who was just a mere child. Nor was he just a by product of his father's loins. No, Antony was much greater then that. In truth he was a bit crazy, he had a mental disorder no doubt about it. Was it crippling? No. As he breathed in through his nose his eye color changed from hazel to yellow. Opening his eyes he then changed demeanor. An arrogance crossed his features and no longer did he have just a voice similar to his father, no his voice was no much deeper and more dark. Like it was a product of the Dark Side itself.

      This caused Antony or what appeared to be him to narrow his eyes. A sinister smirk crossed his face and a deep laugh came from within though he kept his mouth closed while he laughed. Sure, Antony learned from the best as he'd of course learned to use Dun Moch from the traitor who was his former Master, then learned it further from Master Hydrocus. A few had taught him his abilities and through it all he had gained knowledge he never thought he'd have. All the better to serve his own goals. Or the goals of the Dark Passenger he wasn't quite sure yet. His brother Jaden hid within his consciousness as he knew that his brother had made a dire mistake letting the Passenger take control this time. Willingly as Jaden would put it.

      "Ah, so you think yourself high and mighty then? Just because of a mere title?" Antony said circling her his voice dripping with the Dark Side using the technique that Hydrocus had taught him further upon, "Titles are nothing, dear. Don't think yourself immortal...an Apprentice can become the Master quite easily...ask anyone who'd ever been part of Darth Bane's order. They could surely tell you. If your so great...then prove it? If I'm such a weakling compared to you...then do something about it? Or are you that scared that you must boast of your title? Afraid to lose everything to a man?"

      The possessed Sith Apprentice then threw his head back and laughed as he folded his arms across his chest. It was something that Antony wouldn't have done himself, but, the Dark Passenger was afraid of no one. All it was after was power. If he had to destroy the Sith itself to achieve it, then he would. All would either perish or else they would kneel before him. Something Antony of course wasn't a fan of doing. Knowledge and patience were his tools. Though Jaden would wish him to become a Jedi. The odds of that happening were quite slim to none.

      Anger turned to hatred as the force witch exploded on the younger student, pouring her energy into Force Suppression. Using the advanced ability would help her mute his own touch to the Force and hopefully whatever or whomever was now controlling him, his aura turning darker and overcome by something else. Though the Sith Lord had trained with many here at the temple, her talents were in overwhelming her opponent instead of taunting with useless words. Actions were much more powerful, she knew....

      OOC: This is total inspiration just bare with me

      As Lykeria utilized Force Suppression on him, the possessed Antony then laughed. Oh it was more ancient(or so it believed)then what the Jedi and Sith were. The entity was created long before Antony was even born. Frell, before nearly all of them were born. The Sith now were merely a joke to him as were the Jedi. All of them were ignorant to what the Force could really do. It's view of the Force was beyond darkness and light. The entity within Antony believed itself to be as ancient as the Force itself. For all anyone knew or it knew for that matter it could be some odd manifestation of the Force. In that moment all it did was laugh at her. Knew it had goaded her and she fell for it. It cackled with a deep booming laugh. Once Lykeria's mind and psyche touched ever so briefly whether any of them knew or not, the young man's mind splintered again.

      "I knew you'd do such a thing! You fell right for my trap! How easily you are bothered by a man!" The Dark Passenger stated of course still possessing Antony.

      Though again, his mind splintered whether he wanted to or not. Nor did either of the Sith know what was then created deep within the mind of the Apprentice. A small fraction of the Force or something of that nature harbored itself into Antony's mind. Setting off something that was sent out like a wave. Even through Force Suppression it couldn't negate all of it. Not even a Sith or Jedi Master would fathom whatever occurred. James wouldn't even begin to understand. Somehow and some way or another a small part of Lykeria's psyche transferred into the young man. Some small fraction even though Lykeria would be perfectly fine and healthy, it splintered now into four. Antony, of course, his brother Jaden, the Dark Passenger, and now Lykeria. A wave of energy escaped, unnoticed by anyone as she suppressed what she could. Through that wave anyone in the vicinity was caught as some of the psyche of anyone in the vicinity were caught, and it burned through their brains causing them to fall to the ground. Force user and non-Force user alike, which was only about three people, suddenly dropped to the ground. Falling into some kind of coma as their mind was fractured and their psyche enveloped into Antony unwillingly.

      Lykeria knew not of what she just did, and though she felt like she needed to do whatever it was she knew not of what had transpired. Nor did Antony in his state know what was going on. All he knew was that the annoying thing was taking control but he needed it back. There needed to be focus! With that, Antony then wrestled within his own conscious and pulled the Dark Passenger back into his conscious. Now feeling himself again he then pretended that through her continued Force Suppression that he was fine again. Jaden kept himself retreated, and the psyche of anyone else caught within Antony's mind remained hidden with Jaden as well. Though Jaden welcomed them into the whole thing. Wherever their personalities ended up.

      "You can let go now!" Antony said his voice returning to normal.

      Then again, the only thing around their vicinity was normal. However, there were three others, a Rodian, a Twilek female, and a Sith Lord who happened to be human, were pulled into his mind. Though no one would notice because even Antony didn't know what had happened. All that he knew was that Lykeria was using some ability that he hadn't learned yet. In time he knew he would since he knew his time would come very soon where he would become a Sith Lord. It was all in due time.

      Having another voice laugh at her unnerved the dark side witch and had she not realized what had happened sooner, she would've sworn that this undertrained individual had just flaunted her abilities as a trained Sith Lord. But, as she composed herself more, the picture of what she had done to him became clearer. Stepping back, Lykeira's touch to the ability waned and she watched in bewilderment as his aura fractured, as if more than one spirit had been possessing him.

      Suddenly she was intrigued.

      "How did you do that," she asked, their argument and the insults from his other personality now forgotten; Not realizing that she was the one who had used the Force ability which split him apart.

      "Do what?" He said shaking his head before pulling a flask out of one of the pockets on his vest.

      Opening the flask he then took a few sips of his alcohol before looking at Lykeria. Pretending as if he didn't know what went on he then looked down at the thorn bush in front of him. He had the look on his face as if he didn't know what just happened in such a short time. Though in reality Antony knew exactly what happened. Of course all he could do was watch. His true self the one that Lykeria had seen before the Dark Passenger came forth from his consciousness. Antony let it because it had asked permission. Many a time it possessed him while he was asleep. Unless he went to sleep buzzed or completely drunk. Seemed the only way to keep it at bay. Unfortunately it inhibited him from using his Force powers to a degree. His control anyways as it dulled his senses.

      His hazel eyes then looked at her and he knew then she could see through his charade, "Oh...you mean 'him' right? It's...something I deal with all the time."

      "Here all this time I just thought you were crazy," she blurted without thought. "As did most of those here." Her gaze narrowed slightly in thought, "How'd they get in you in the first place?" Having an elder witch or some famed Sith of old possessing her had it's appeal, but then the more she thought about it, she was glad that they didn't. Unless it came with the sharing of power, much like what she thought the spirit having been pushed out of Antony was doing. There was more study in that subject that she had to do, but having the training in Sith Sorcery was going to be a long way off, it seemed.
