Review of Neural Record log for Ver`alor Al`verde Sail “Iron Lung” Razer.
Review Conducted by Alor`ad Ellon Bluet
Month 6, Day 24, 40 years ABY.
Ver`alor Al`verde Sail’s last day was filled with combat worthy of any Mandalorian, but his death was not at the hand of the Author, as Captain Cavisek indicated. In fact, the true cause of Sail’s death was a lightsaber weilded by a member of Cavisek’s own crew. The Twi’lek Vescera struck the Ver`alor Al`verde down after the Ver`alor Al`verde spent the day fighting humans wielding Lightsabers, Bardotan cultist and someone named “The Author” who appears to be from outside of our universe. I am unable to ascertain the nature of “The Author”, however he was not the cause of Ver`alor Al`verde Sail’s Death.
When Ver`alor Al`verde Sail arrived on Camino, the facility appeared to be mostly deserted. The landing pads were occupied by Ver`alor Al`verde Sail’s starfighter, two Bardottan ships, a Lambda class shuttle, and Captain Cavisek’s light freighter.
Sail joined with Captain Cavisek’s Pirate crew, including Kali T’sabo a Chadra-Fan mechanic, Vescera a Twi’lek dancer, Kell Bastra Ace Pilot, Jer Tarkona Vandros a Half-Twi’lek combat specialist who may not be a pirate crew member exactly but worked with Cavisek anyway, Captain Boomerang of his own pirate fame, and Zol’diath"Zostra a Chiss explorer who also does not appear to be a member of the crew but is working with Ver`alor Al`verde Sail and Cavisek.
Shortly after landing they began clearing the facility. The group appears to be looking for someone named Sabawyn Xalrich, who is a young Pantoran force user who may have been involved in the destruction of Ibaar. Based on the conversations throughout the recording, Sabawyn was kidnapped by Virask Isck and taken to this facility. The group spends multiple hours discussing how to investigate the facility and speculating on what Virask or whoever is employing Virask will do with the Pantoran. Eventually, The Red Twi’lek Vescera gets fed up and pushes forward.
Sail sees this and pulls ahead of her, insisting on taking point. At this point, Sail, followed by Kell Bastra and Jer Targkona Vendros open a blast door to be greated by 3 Human with Lightsabers.
The recording cuts briefly when Ver`alor Al`verde Sail takes a couple hits from lightsabers, and returns a short time later with Captain Cavisek standing over Ver`alor Al`verde Sail with a stimpack in his hand.
After the lightsaber wielding humans are taken care of, the group continues down the corridors, with Ver`alor Al`verde Sail, Kell and Jer Targkona taking point. This time they are more careful about opening doors.
They encounter Anya Ren along with another knight of Ren and 3 storm troopers. Vescera immediatly indicates she knew they were here, to which sail responds with some surprise and anger. Sail appears to be frustrated that Vescera kept this information from the rest of the group.
The group decides to work with Anya anyway, to find whatever is happening in this facility. Anya does not appear to be here for Sabawyn.
the group keeps exploring the facility and eventually encounters a cloning chamber filled with what appear to be Bardottan cultists. During the initial exchange, Captain Cavisek is allowed to follow after Virask Isck. Shortly after Cavisek leaves, Vescera is struck with a packet of some goo. The goo immediately begins to encase her. Once she’s encased the rest of the party begins interogating the Bardottans on what is happening to Vescera and how to reverse it, but the Bardottans appear to be either unwilling or unknowing of the answer.
Sail makes the first move and rockets up to a high spot in the room. En route he is met with 20 spears that are tossed in the air toward him. A few of these strike him but he appears to be unphased. Sail’s actions immediately begin a scuffle with the Bardottans where their number is reduced to roughly 20-30 after which the Bardottans attempt to flee. They are cut off, however, when the doors close around them. Sail orders the Bardottans to drop their spears and stand in the corner. After they’re subdued, sail gathers their spears and places them on the other side of the room.
During this encounter, thousands of clones were destroyed when the cloning tower was attacked by Captain Boomerang. The clones appear to be clones of Jango Fett. Sail appears to approve in general of destroying the clones and the facility.
The stand off continues as Anya and Sail discuss what they should do next. One of the pirates (A Chadra-Fan mechanic) figures out how to look at the security cameras for where Captain Cavisek went and informs everyone that Cavisek was defeated in his encounter with Virask. Kell immediately leaves to find a way to retrieve Cavisek.
The Bardottans tell the group that Sabawyn, the person they are here to save, is with someone named the Author (Presumably the author captain Cavisek indicated was the cause of Sail’s Death upon return of his body).
Sail decides the objective is not to deal with Virask but to retrieve Sabawyn and stop whoever this Author is from doing whatever he’s doing with her.
The group follows the instructions the Bardottan’s gave them to find the author. They appear to be a bit more interested in their own internal struggles after entering this area. Sail’s armor appeared to be covered in a powder-like substance identified to be Farangal, which may have been in the air in this area. The Farangal in the air may account for the more aggressive behavior of the two Chadra-Fan and the Chiss.
The group, now down Cavisek and Kell Bastra, find “The Author”. They also bring the encased form of Vescera with them. A lot happens when they encounter “The Author”. Sail immediately opens fire on “The Author” but after several hits with blaster fire “The Author” does not appear to be affected. The wounds appear to fill with some kind of white ichor shortly after they are made.
“The Author”, seemingly unphased by anything that’s happend, simply asks what they’re there for. Sail indicates they are here for the Pantoran. “The Author” freely gives up Sabawyn who appears to be unconcious. “The Author” indicates they’ve taken something from the Pantoran to make what he refers to as his “Vessal”, presumably the form he’s inhabiting now. (Which is in fact a clone of Jango Fett, like the rest of the clones made in the facility.
Once the Sabawyn issue is delt with, There’s a heated exchange where Anya demands to know how to reverse the process currently happening to Vescera. The Author indicates 1. that Vescera shouldn’t keep fighting it and 2. the process is not reversable.
Sail decides to open fire again. There’s more scuffling after which the author’s “Vessel” is covered in more ichor. The author again does not appear phased, so he starts talking to the group again.
Captain Boomerang decides he’s going to leave. The rest of the group discuss amongst themselves and having retrieved Sabawyn decide their mission is completed. Half way through walking away, though, Anya indicates the Author should be stopped. Sail discusses this with her, apparently frustrated. Anya does present some good arguments. “The Author”, whatever it is, is likely a destablizing force in the universe and deserves to be stopped. So Sail, Anya and the Chiss return to the Author. They begin shooting, sabering, etc. but again “The Author” doesn’t appear to react although he indicates that he is trying to “Stop” them. Briefly, the Author turns his attention to Sail and the Neural record for that moment is slightly damaged, so the Author may have done something with the force to Sail’s mind at that moment.
Eventually, Anya collapses to the floor, blood leaking from every orafice on her head, presumably dead. Nothing the group is doing appears to be affecting The Author. Sail must have noticed this as he begins to flee. The rest of their party follows shortly after.
This marks the last time the Author is present in the actual recording.
As Sail is running, the facility explodes. Sail winds up in the water. Several minutes pass before Sail is retrieved by a Submarine piloted by Kell Bastra.
Present here is the entire pirate crew minus the Chiss, including The Chadra-Fan Kali, the Chadra-Fan Captain Boomerang, Captain Cavisek having been recovered from his potential watery grave, Jer Tarkona, Kell Bastra, and a Yellow Twi’lek with unusually long lekku. Sabawyn is there and appears to be in a Coma, as well as the remaining Knight of Ren who identifies himself as Erabis.
The Yellow Twi’lek, who is identified as Vescera, who was previously a red Twi’lek, during discussion, is visibly upset by her new form. While she is complaining, Sail interrupts her.
“To be fair, Vescera, you deserve whatever you got. If you were on my crew and you withheld information about what we are going to be facing, you’d be stripped of your honor!”
Vescera’s response is to draw her lightsaber and strike at Sail.
Sail falls, and his helmet appears to fall off. He lays there for several minutes before Cavisek, standing over him with a severe look on his face, looks over sail’s wounds and attempts to treat them.
The recording cuts with Cavisek’s face, an obvious defeated look on his face, watching the life leave Ver`alor Al`verde Sail’s body.
What this recording shows is Captain Cavisek lied about the cause of Sail’s death. Sail died at the hands of the Twi’lek Vescera, although her blow was only the final one. He faced several lightsabers, spears and some kind of monster in his last moments.
If Vescera had never struck Sail he may have returned to The Drastic Action alive.
