The door to the bar slowly opened up, but there wasn't a person, no there seemed to be nothing standing in the bar door as it opened. The door was held open for several moments and there seemed to be no one there. And then the door closed, and the sound of quick puttering feet on the floor were heard.

There was a brief silence, and a strange creature climbed up onto one of the tables in the bar. The strange creature was dressed in a strange asian armor that looked almost Taiyou make. There was eucalyptus leaves hanging from the armor, in addition to strange seed pods.

The figure chirped briefly in what sounded like a series of fast paced purrs, chirps, grunts, and trills as it surveyed the individuals in the bar.

The strange creature continued to watch it's surroundings, silent and unassuming.

The strange creature continued to stand on one of the tables. It tapped it's earpiece a moment, and crawled across a small cluster of drinks, before leaping onto a support pillar and clinging to it, scurrying up and hanging from the ceiling through strange threads that suspended it from a harness.

The strange creature sat there and grasped one of the strange seed pods on it's armor. Then it began to munch on an eucalyptus leaf.

The creature brought it's eyes on David. Still suspended from the ceiling of the bar, it watched him, surveyed him, then chirped and grunted to itself in a completely inhuman language, it then looked down to a device on it's chest, and fixed the device to it's earpiece. There was a brief feedback as the device synchronized with the brainwaves.

The figure stared at David before tossing a pod at him, the pod resembled a large walnut, and seemed to be made of wood.

The nut rolled on the table if it struck it's target and sat there harmlessly.

The creature laughed what it's equivalent of one would be, a series of trills and chirps before there was a human sounding male voice emanating from the creature.

"You're quite a jumpy one aren't you." The voice said, and yet the strange creature in asian style armor didn't seem to be talking, it's mouth wasn't moving. But it's eyes were directly on David.

"You humans are all the same, no matter what part of the universe you're from."

The creature continued to dangle from it's spot in the ceiling, staring down at David and watching his every move, the voice once more emanating from the creature.

"I noted your armaments, primitive but impressive, metal projectile propelled by a chemical reaction, quite a feat of engineering for your species. Though, you would not be so quick to discharge your weapon in a confined area such as this. And to hit such a small target with equipment beyond your comprehension. I made the educated and informed decision that you would not fire, so I threw that nut for my sheer amusement." The strange creature said, as it stuffed an eucalyptus leaf in it's mouth.

"Considering my species is also protected by an Empire of humans that we assisted during a time of great strife, I cannot foresee you firing your weapon at me to be in your best interest."

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt descended from the ceiling much like a spider would from a beam. The creature descended onto the table directly in front of David.

"Is that what you call us?" The figure said looking up at David.

"Koala?" The figure said, obviously likely having read the mercenary's mind. Matokeyans were telepaths of course, that was generally how they communicated with alien species prior to the invention of the Taiyou Verbal translator.

"We come from 'Matkiee' Or as the Taiyou call us, Matokey." The figure said, standing a full two feet in height.

"I am 'Taanz, I am a Shipmaster in the 'Matkiee Fleet, I come bringing peaceful tidings to all sapient life in this galaxy."

The strange animal like creature surveyed the human some more. "Strange, your attire and gear is clearly not Taiyou or Paradigm, nor are they Argosian. And clearly you are not Aschen. No, your weaponry and armor is far too primitive to be them. Tell me in a sentence about yourself."

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt turned to the strange cat, surveying it only a split second, before it leveled it's gaze back on the human before it.

"My angle? I simply speak to you for social interaction as it is you humans call it. Though, If I am becoming a bother. I will not speak to you any further." Taanz said it's eyes narrowing at the man.

"I am what you call a Talking Koala, a two thousand year old being with the knowledge and understanding that far surpasses your own. And yet you wish nothing? I could impart knowledge that would change your life. I could teach you how to modify your armaments to penetrate the energy shields often used by those who oppress you." The figure spoke, gesturing to the door.

"I will leave you, as other things could benefit from my knowledge."

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt watched him, surveyed him before he slid the nut back towards David, and sat there in silence as the nut split open, and tendrils of plant matter began to slide out of the nut, engulfing first the nut, before turning into a throbbing, pulsating mass of plant biomass right before the man.

There was silence coming from the strange animal, as it watched and silently waited, the throbbing biomass opened up into a venus flytrap like appendage, and slowly moved over towards David before it opened up, opening up to reveal a strange looking firearm. It seemed to be a fork shaped firearm of some kind, an arc of electricity sparked between two amber colored electrodes, and several amber colored gems lit up, and the Matokeyan Shipmaster gestured towards David.

"A gift." He said, inclining his head.

"It is our basic firearm, engineered to fit a human hand. You are free to try it."

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt watched him, and then looked to the weapon, gesturing to a small outcropping, the weapon's safety. It seemed the weapon itself was made from wood, yet felt sturdy and durable. There was a broad green leafy top just below the sights of the weapon.

"Our weapons do not need to be reloaded, merely set in the sun." The figure said, gesturing to bottles which had somehow stacked themselves in a pyramid shape.

The figure stepped aside, to give David a clear line of sight. The trigger was more like a strange ligament in the pistol grip.

Should David squeeze the trigger, the weapon would whine, and the arc would flash a blinding amber, loosing a crescent shaped sheet of energy towards the bottles, vaporizing them and everything behind them before striking the wall of the bar, which flashed a brilliant amber before dissipating, a pile of ash and a crater in the wall of the bar.

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt inclined it's head once more, before he produced a smaller and slightly different weapon of his own, which had been holstered at his hip on the strange asian armor. It was out a moment, before he slid it back into it's holster.

"Yes, and here you entertained the notion of firing at me." He said, gesturing to the Kalashnikov rifle.

"We do have more accurate weapons, capable of much more devastating releases of energy. But I am not one to bestow all our weapons technology upon you. Only use it should your other weapons prove useless. I understand there are several different beings on this world that are more than capable of shrugging off metal projectiles." The Alien said, before he looked to the discarded plant mass, which had pulled itself back into the pod and the Alien picked it back up and attached it to his bandoleer.

The figure offered what little smile it could given it's facial structure. "Do not think I blindly trust you with advanced 'Matkiee technology. I knew who you were the moment you entered. We're Telepaths, your life played before me as we conversed." The figure said.

"I understand you're a mercenary. Are you for hire?"

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt tilted his head, then looked down to the head. "I see, I am not terribly familiar with human biology and Anatomy, you are the first human being I have conversed with in one thousand earth years, to put it in your concepts." The creature explained then took another look to the damaged leg. "Unfortunately our medical technology would not suit your species, and would do more damage than good, If you seek out the Taiyou. They could certainly give you a prosthetic leg." The creature explained, stepping back on the table, yet still standing.

"If you can bring yourself back to health, I would like to contract your services. I believe the nominal fee of one hundred thousand Imperial Cubits would more than satisfy any balances I may owe."

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt the figure nodded slightly. "We're not the most physically resilient beings, we evolved for knowledge, not physical brute strength. I'm looking for foot-soldiers, but, I understand you have other commitments. You may retain the weapon. It is a gift." The figure said, holding up it's small but alien hand to reject the return of the weapon. "Besides, I have no use for that weapon, it's much too large for me." The figure said, as it attached itself to the line up to the ceiling.

"If I am still on this world when you make your choice, simply ask for me by speaking into your weapon. I will arrive if I am not otherwise occupied."

There was a low rumble, and a sleek angular ship that seemed to be comprised of a living tree touched down on main street.

"For now though, I must return to my fleet, We have plans for this world we must set in motion." He then produced another walnut like pod.

"Find fertile soil and plant this for me, if you do that simple task, I will pay you the price previously negotiated. One hundred thousand Imperial Aschen Cubits."

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt nodded before he detatched himself from the line, then scurried out to the ship. In a moment's notice, the ship was gone.

The door to Gambit's once again slowly opened up and yet there was nothing in the door, except for a two foot tall Koala bear like creature standing in the center of the bar. There was silence from the creature, followed by a series of trills and grunts as it moved through the bar. The strange creature was this time, clad in ornate armor made from a wood and amber like material, and parked just outside the bar was a large sleek and angular ship made entirely from wood.

The figure watched it's surroundings, before it climbed up onto a table, and paused a moment.

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt watched the fight between Satanity and Milan quickly unfold, and thus the Matokeyan Shipmaster would act quickly, jumping into the air, he readied his combat systems and threw an amber colored visor over his face and eyes, with the jump he quickly produced a fork shaped weapon seemingly made of wood, and bore aim upon Satanity.

Skittering after him as he tried to drag the man out to the alley, he fired, and the weapon loosed a crescent shaped sheet of energy at the Dire Wolf, that would reduce everything caught within it's path into ashes. The sheet loosed an audible pop before it screeched towards the Wolf, and should it impact, it too would likely reduce the creature to little more than a pile of ash.

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt grunted to itself as it observed the wolf dodging the sheet of energy. Slowly it lowered the strange weapon before sliding it into a holster made from a biological leather like material. The figure shook it's head and tuned it's visor to scan the darkness, which displayed everything in an amber hue clear as day.

There was a series of sympathetic grunts and trills before the creature pushed the door to the side alley open and slowly stepped inside the bar.

'Taanz 'Velzzmkt checked his weapon for a moment as the mysterious figure entered the bar. The strange koala bear like creature remained silent as it checked it's weapon some more, climbing up onto a table and eyeing a glass of water, before plucking a leaf off it's armor and munching on it.

"A shame that man had to die." The being said through a translator mounted on it's chest.

Mollem nodded slowly as he placed a hand on her back, pulling her close to him. "I am." He said, looking up and out the window, the light illuminating the room and filling it with the soft blue light from the Gas Giant Mephistopheles.

"I couldn't sleep." He said, shifting in the bed. "I'm not used to the light, I'm not used to the quiet.. a primitive world has it's differences I guess." He said, before the sound of a knock filled the house, and Mollem immediately reached for his disruptor which was stuffed under the bed.

"Shh." He said, Raphael nowhere to be found in the house. "I wonder where Raphael is." He said, getting up out of the bed and pulling his tunic over him, before he started towards the door, bare feet pattering against the marble flooring.

"Probably out getting drunk and laid." He said, approaching the door, another set of knocks filling the house.

Kianna settled against Mollem comfortably. "My either," she replied, though her inability to get back to sleep was for far different reasons than Mollem's.

"I've been unfair to you. I was angry and upset, and maybe a bit afraid. Raphael's right about one thing though. We're immortal, eternal. Our time will come again, and we need to be ready for that. We can't stay here though, he was wrong to bring us here. We should leave in the morning."

She pressed her lips lightly against his shoulder before shifting to try and get some sleep when the knock sounded. The sound had her swiftly on alert as Mollem quieted her. While Mollem made for the door she sat up hesitantly. Who would be here in the middle of the night?

Slipping out of the bed she headed for the window to look out, but she couldn't make out anything. Whoever was at the door was out of her view.

She frowned and quickly clothed herself enough to join Mollem in reaching the front door. With only the one pistol between the pair of them, she had opted for arming herself with a knife from the kitchen. She silently took up a position next to the door, her back to the wall as she nodded for Mollem to go ahead and open it.
