Such a pity the woman wasn't force sensitive Tak thought, she'd make an ideal candidate for a program he had been working on, all in his mind of course, a program that would alter the balance between the Emperor and Vada. Of course he knew it would never see the light of day, if either of them got wind of it, he'd be dead very quickly. No, it was better to keep things like that to ones self, although he still had hopes that if it were possible for him to get close enough to Jago's granddaughter, he was certain he could turn her. Another long shot on his wish list, Imsen was loyal to the Empire, not personalities and he felt strongly that both Jedi, Vada and Palpatine would be instrumental in the undoing of the Empire.

Clearing his head of his reverie, the lingering echo of the sonic blast helped there as well, Tak left his position to stand beside the hapless mad scientist and Pelles. With a thick index finger he prodded the man's temple. "We only need you conscious Althzaria, barely alive even, to extract what is in there. You know that. It will be far less painful for you to cooperate willingly." To emphasize his words, Imsen sent a shock of pain into the man's skull, not much, but enough to let him know where he stood.

The Death Trooper kept her focus on the man in her grip, but despite the shock he had just recieved, Doctor Althzaria just seemed to get even more intense with his insane giggling.

"Nnngh....know you have me but won't let you keep me...yes, yes, you are helping them. Hehehehe." Althzaria giggled again, before getting very serious, "A dark winter is coming, and you cannot stop it."

"Maybe, but we'll endure it." Satre said.

"Dagger One, we're closing on your position now. Status report." Captain Sarkli said over comms.

"Kingslayer Two, we..." Before Satre could finish her sentence, a single blaster bolt rang out and bored into Althzaria's head, killing him instantly. The force of the impact was a bit more than Satre could put on her hand and she was forced to drop his body onto the street below.

"Sniper spotted, engaging." Sarkli said, as his men came into view over the opposite rooftop. They leveled their weapons on the balcony across from where the shot rang out and and opened fire, demolishing the balcony under a hail of blaster fire.

"Continue your report."

"...target is eliminated. Is the site secured?" Satre asked.

"More troops from the garrison are arriving. Doctor Althzaria's death is unfortunate...but an acceptable loss. I'll inform Admiral Zarin of your support here today. Your shuttle is cleared to pick you up." Sarkli said. Satre turned to Tak.

"We have his files, that should tell us enough. Hopefully, the bodies here will fill in the gaps to whomever was interested in that lunatic's work." Satre said.

To Imsen it was inevitable, an outcome he all but expected given the circumstances and the area of operations he really couldn't have not seen it coming. Still it grated him, badly. To have the man in his grasp then to lose him so quickly burned a hole in his soul; if he had one of course, which he didn't.

"It'll be enough, we'll take his carcass as well. I may be able to extract something from any residue energies left in his system, though it won't be much, it will give us a little more insight." He looked up above them, now it was time to fill in a lot more gaps, fortunately he won't have to answer to Vader on this one. "It's time to go. Mark this place for a little retribution later on, just to let them know where they stand." If it were up to him, he'd vaporize the city the moment they were back on the ship.

Overhead, the Lambda they arrived in was swooping over to find a landing zone closer to them. Satre led the way, first into the warehouse that they had been standing on top of the entire time. Inside were speeder bikes and a landspeeder, the latter seemingly modified with armor and larger engines. They likely had a transport waiting somewhere else, but that was at least smart of them to know not to take off in an area where TIE Fighters were circling like vultures.

"I hope we don't cross paths with Sarkli again. He was an awful lot of talk for generating minimal results, just a factor that caused more harm than good. I can't tell if he's that incompetent or if he had an ulterior motive. Many commandos don't approve of Death Troopers, so it could also be his ego got in the way of efficiency." Satre commented while they were alone, heading through the warehouse.

"Our opposition here, they were well practiced in their execution of their evacuation plan. Had we not been here, it's likely Althzaria would have escaped. Perhaps the data recovery teams will be able to find something of value as to who we were dealing with. If they're this organized, then we might have a more serious issue on our hands than a babbling lunatic." The Death Trooper added.

"We sent them to ground for the time being, they will I am sure, surface again. When they do even if they expect us to be watching their every move with them thinking they are anticipating us to go for them once more, we will allow them a little freedom in the short term, let them build up a degree of confidence." A flourish of his hands were thrown up for emphasis pertaining to his next statement. "When that happens we will strike hard and swiftly, there will be no mistakes next time.

Glancing over at where they had returned to Tak used his senses and eyes to see if anything was missed, a small remnant of a chip lay on the floor from one of the fried consoles, not much but it certainly could yield results once dissected back on the ship. Tak snatched that up, stuffing it away in a pouch beneath his cloak. "You and I both know Satre we already have a serious situation upon us. That Lunatic as you rightly described him left a trail as long as the Corvellian cortex behind him, how many others have picked up the pieces is no ones guess and as for our opposition, they will not last that long." There was nothing more to be done for the time being, at least not by either of them. "We should return to the ship for now, we can use what time we have to decide our next moves."

As the two stepped outside, APCs were arriving from the garrison with even more Stormtroopers. It was entirely possible at this point that there were still attackers alive, and so doctrine made it clear to conduct a full sweep of the area. Everything would be recovered and studied, with the data files to be transferred to the Kingslayer, as well as Imperial Intelligence and the ISB.

Satre waited by the ramp of the Lambda to allow Tak to board first before following him onto the craft. The shuttle lifted off and headed straight for the Kingslayer as it hung in orbit.
