-Command Spire, Hangar-
The cloaked figure sat contemplatively in his seat, meditating. He felt something was coming. He knew it. A single squad of Republic forces. They had been sent to eliminate him, but they didn't know who he was. They didn't comprehend what they were up against. He would enjoy this short lived fight. He waited eagerly.
-Command Spire, Corridor outside Hanger-
Gamma Squad had made it this far into the Command Spire. It was relatively simple thus far. They had killed some droids, fought their way through trenches, and snuck through the drainage system.. They narrowly escaped detection only to find out they were likely being expected. Now they were outside the hangar, about to eliminate their target. It seemed all too easy.
"SQUAD! BREACH THAT DOOR!" Hak exclaimed with gusto.
Gamma Squad blew the door open and rushed into the hangar.
Empty. It was empty.
Had all the leaders already evacuated? No, there was one shuttle remaining. It fit Advisor's description as well. So where was their target?
Just then a cloaked figure, clad in black armor produced himself from the shadows by rotating his chair to face the Squad.
"Salutations clones. I will enjoy this skirmish. Unfortunately, you will not survive." said a smooth, almost liquid voice. Calm, confident, and commanding.
"Don't be so sure, seppie scum. Prepare yourself to die in the name of the Republic." said Hak.
"Hmm, such arrogance. I look forward to breaking you. Haven't you realized? I. AM. SITH."
A crimson blade ignited, and the figure lurched forward, uncloaking as he traveled through the air. He landed in front of Hak and would have cut him down, had Razor not stepped in with his dual Beskads.
"Don't think so." said Razor in his hushed raspy voice. He dueled, but not to much avail.
A commando's strengths in assassinations were cunning, planning, surprise, and the art of the kill. These were all but lost on the Sith, leaving the squad at an extreme disadvantage. Odds of survival were slim. He was a superior fighter, he was faster, and he was smarter.
"Squad! Eliminate target!" said Hak.
Gamma Squad hopped to and opened fire on the Sith. He deflected the lasers with ease as Razor was pushed to the brink.
Razor fought on with his beskar swords, but they were only lightsaber resistant, not lightsaber proof. They slowly were worn down by the heat of the saber's blade and the speed with which they collided. He was pushed back by the unknown Sith and was now against the wall.
The Sith grabbed Razor with the Force and flung him at Shank. They collided with a loud crack.
"SHAB!" said Slash, diving out of the way of the other two commandos. He got to his feet. "Eat anti-armor!" Slash began firing rounds of explosive ammunitions at his foe. "DIE! DIE DAMN YOU!"
The Sith dodged the explosives and rushed Slash.
"Kriff kriff kriff KRIFF!!!" said Slash, starting to panic.
Shank looked up from where he lay under Razor and fired a taser line from his gauntlet onto the Sith's armor.
"GAAAHHHH!!!" the Sith shrieked in pain. "Insolent fool! YOU WILL DIE!"
The Sith plodded towards Shank and Razor, lifted his saber above his head, and prepared to drive it through both commandos, which would have killed them both, if Hak hadn't ran in and tackled the Sith to the ground.
Hak raised his clenched fist to pound the Sith's mask in, but was stopped by the Force, and was thrown off.
Slash saw his chance and put a single blaster bolt through the Sith's raised hand as he Force pushed Hak, and he took it.
The Sith cried out in pain, and fired lightening at Slash, who fell writhing.
Why hadn't he killed all four commandos yet? It should have been over already.
Razor, Shank, and Slash were now incapacitated. Only Hak remained.
Hak struggled to his feet, well worn.
"Ready to die clone?"
"Not yet. Not today."
Hak lurched towards the Sith and planted a grenade on him.
The grenade detonated, throwing Hak against the wall and throwing the Sith the opposite direction.
The room was silent and only the sounds of war could be heard raging outside.
