    Solstice’s fingertips brushed the vine. With a sudden surge of strength she jerked them loose from the tree and flung them over to the wolf-man.  She used the Force to propel them forward, and the long, thick vines landed in a tangled mass over the wolf-man’s head. He let out a howl of frustration and clawed at the knots, only drawing them tighter around himself.

    Jaina grasped the vines and pulled.

    “Steady, help me tie this guy up!” Jaina grunted. Steady leapt over to her, and soon they had the wolf- man subdued. He growled and snapped at anyone who came near him, but due to a vine caught in his mouth, he couldn’t say anything.

    A few scattered droids remained, but Reel made quick work of them with his machine gun. The group gathered around their new captive and looked to one another.

    “I don’t think this was part of the plan,” Will said.

    Jaina agreed with her brother.

    “what do we do now?” Cresh asked, walking over to make sure Jaina had come out uninjured.

    Jaina remained silent. She was deep in thought, trying to figure something out.

    all the Clones remained silent, even Reel for the most part.

    Then he spoke up. “Why don’t we take Wolf-Man with us?”

    “I agree with Reel,” Solstice spoke up. “We can’t just leave him here.”

    “Maybe we could use him as a hostage,” Broker suggested. Jaina shook his head.

    “No,” She said. “The Separatists don’t work like that. He’d have to be very valuable for them to even consider rescuing him. Besides, our mission isn’t to make a deal.”

    “Yeah, ‘cause we’re just a distra-” Solstice gasped and slapped a hand across the lower half of Reel’s helmet. The wolf-man’s ears perked up. His mouth spread into a sharp toothy grin. What sounded like a guttural chuckle escaped his throat.

    “Now we definitely have to take him with us,” Will groaned. Solstice shrugged and lowered her hand. Reel shuffled his feet guiltily. Solstice gave him a half-smile and patted his shoulder.

    “It’s all right, Reel,” She said. Jaina nodded.

    “Solstice is right. He probably would have found out eventually. And we couldn’t let him back into enemy hands, anyway,” Jaina shrugged and started forward through the trees, and then called over her shoulder. “Who knows, maybe having him will be useful, somehow.”

    “Let’s move out, men,” Steady said.

    Will picked up one of the vines connected to the wolf-man and tugged.

    “Come on, big guy. Time to go.”

    The wolf-man didn’t move. Will ignited his lightsaber.

    The wolf-man complied.

    (Sounds like a good switching place)

    Bo’ followed the master Jedi and clone commander in silence.

    They all had weapons at the ready as they walked along in a sewer system to get into the castle. They didn’t know what they would run into down there.

    Bo’ looked up to the wall and caught sight of lurid crimson graffiti written in a strange language.

    “This place isn’t very welcoming,” he commented.

    “Most places we’re sent, aren’t,” Gryphon said. Their voices mingled with the sound of falling droplets… and then the sound hauntingly morphed into the clanking of battle droids.

    Ivaylo gritted his teeth and held his fist up, alerting Bo’ and Gryphon to the danger. The two crouched and waited for his signal.

    “I thought I heard something over here, commander,” one droid said in its mechanical voice. The clanking of metal grew closer and closer with each passing second. Ivaylo still made no move to attack. Gryphon seemed almost relaxed, but Bo’ grew tense as the droids drew nearer.

    Finally, the moment came. Ivaylo dropped his hand, and then hurled a handful of droid poppers into the hall. With a hollow ringing sonic tone the poppers deactivated most of the droids. Gryphon and Bo’ began shooting down the remainder. Two fled down the hall. Ivaylo raised his rifle and aimed, but suddenly a rumbling rocked the tunnel.

    “What was that?” Gryphon grunted as he kicked a droid away from him.

    The two fleeing droids had reached an intersection. They turned to the right.

    Something black and enormous tore from the left tunnel and grabbed the two droids. They wailed in terror as it retracted with incredible speed back into the left tunnel.

    Ivaylo, Gryphon, and Bo’ exchanged glances.

    “That complicates things,” Gryphon said grimly.

    Bo’ grimaced. Today was not the day to be eaten up by some monster.

    “should we keep moving?” He asked.

    Ivaylo nodded. “We don’t have much choice. Stay on alert, keep your voices down, and we could get out of here without incident.” He started down the tunnel, hands close to his lightsaber and blaster.

    “I have a bad feeling about this,” Gryphon muttered as he and Bo’ followed after Ivaylo.

    They continued on in relative silence for several minutes. Ivaylo pulled out his holoprojector and studied the map of the city. A red blip hovered where the group stood.

    “We should be there soon,” Ivaylo said.

    The ground beneath them trembled. Ivaylo looked up, coiling with tension. Without looking to his men, he uttered one command.

    “Run.”

    The three all took off in a sprint.

    unfortunately, Bo’ and Ivaylo ran one way and Gryphon another, and the jaws of the beast snapped around where they had just been standing, blocking the commander’s way back to the others.

    Ivaylo turned and glanced behind him, to the passageway blocked by the mouth of the creature.

    “Should we go back for him, General?” Bo’ asked as the two continued running down the tunnel. Ivaylo shook his head.

    “Gryphon is resourceful. He’ll find his way back to us, eventually.”

    Bo’ nodded and they slowed as they reached another intersection. The captain flicked on his helmet’s light and scanned the area. Everything seemed secure.

    “Should we try contacting him?” Bo’ asked.

    “We can’t risk them picking up the comm’s signal. We brought those only for emergencies.”

    “I’d say this is an emergency,” Bo’ said softly.

    Ivaylo stared at Bo’ for a moment and then shook his head.

    The general reached down to flick on his holo-map, but stayed his hand.

    “I have a theory,” he said, and jogged a distance down one of the branching tunnels. He looked over to Bo’. “Get close to the wall. And turn off your light.”

    Without any further warning he flicked his holo-map on. Bo’ rushed to obey.

    Then the ground shook.

    One of the nasty creatures plunged toward Ivaylo from the facing tunnel. The general swiftly drew his blaster rifle and fired several shots at the creature. It shrieked and retracted from the way it had come.

    Bo’ slowly moved to join Ivaylo, whose mouth was set in a grim line.

    “Those monsters are attracted to electronic signals. No more technology for us.”

    Sooo, I’ve been wondering, is Bo’ s name short for something? Because it has the little apostrophe and I wasn’t sure if that was just artistic or if it meant something else?

    Also, d’you think my sections are a little too long, or are you ok with it? Because I usually just get really into it and have a bunch of ideas so I try to cram it all into one post. 😅

    Bo’ took off his helmet and looked around.

    The soft clanking of droids sounded not to far off.

    The Captain looked at the General, then he walked over to a corner and waited with his helmet in his hands.

    As two droids turn the corner, Bo’ swung his helmet and hit the droids straight at their heads, causing them to fall in a heap.

    Bo’s name is short for something. You’ll find out when you meet him in the fanfic. 😉

    i don’t mind one bit. You can write it as long as you see fit. I’m just used to rp with my own charas. I find it a little uncomfortable to write others charas since I don’t know all of their characteristics. You’ve done pretty good with most of mine though, so I applaud. XD 😉

    Ooo, mysterious.😉

    I totally understand about writing others’ characters. And thanks! I’m really glad I’ve been able to write yours well. Let me know if you notice anything I should change about how I write them.

    ~~~~~

    Ivaylo watched cooly as Bo’ replaced his helmet. “I like that move,” Ivaylo said, giving Bo’ a rare and fleeting smile.

    “Thank you, sir,” Bo’ said, and then followed Ivaylo as the general led down the passage.

    “We must stay away from the droids. They attract the beasts. If we encounter them, deactivate them as quickly as possible,” Ivaylo instructed. Bo’ gave an affirmative nod.

    Ivaylo moved to activate the holo-map and grunted at his ignorance. Have to go by memory, now.

    After looking down two tunnels, he closed his eyes and tried to visualize the map. If they were at the junction he thought they were, the correct path would be… left.

    Just a few more turns and they would reach their destination…

    If no gigantic toothy-worm-beasts got in their way.

    Yeppers XD hehe

    thanks for understanding.

    ……

    Zeinli’s team, along with the prince and his people, all made their way to the walls of the city.

    Zeinli glanced at her Padawan, who had gotten quiet. He furrowed his brows in thought.

    “Goane?”

    he looked up, “Jaina just told me they have a prisoner.”

    Zeinli understood the mental bond that the two shared. She was amazed at how they could communicate through their minds and emotions.

    she nodded, “What are they doing now?”

    Goane shrugged, “Hasn’t said yet.”

    Zeinli nodded and motioned to some of the wolf people and a couple Clones to climb the vine-covered wall.

    They would go ahead as planned.

    She gestured to Goane and a few others to go climb the wall in the other side of the gates.

    She and Rookie, along with a few wolf people, including the prince, would go through the gates.

    Rookie hefted his blaster and tried to calm his nerves. He nearly tripped over a stone in his state of excitement. Zeinli looked to him and smiled reassuringly.

    “Don’t worry, Rookie,” she said, and softly touched his shoulder. Immediately a sense of calm overtook his body.

    “Yes, ma’am, and, uh, thanks,” Rookie said, and then looked up to the gate. Wide metal bars made up the double doors, which were around ten meters high. A gatehouse stood on the right side of the entrance.

    “State your name, and business!” a battle droid stuck its pale tan head out of the gatehouse window. A large paw reached out and shoved the droid back inside.

    “That’s my job, metalhead! Behave yerself or ye’ll be scrap before my watch is over!” A wolf-person looked out over the group. He let out a yelp of surprise.

    “Well! You… you’re a J-Jedi! Clanky, sound the alarm! We’re under attack!”

    Goane and his group jumped over the wall and landed in the midst of a sea of battledroids.

    He ignited his saber, gripping it in between his fingers in his unusual way. His team immediately thinned out the droids with the help of a flank of clones and wolf people coming from the other side of the streets.

    Then bombs went off, coming from nowhere. The Force of one explosion knocked Goane and several others back. When they stood and went to jump back into battle, they saw a team of wolf people running for them, and they didn’t look friendly.
