‘If you focus on your training and work hard at any and all tasks they set forth before you, you will become one of high standing.’ Nika could still remember the words of her Grandfather on the day she had registered as a cadet at the Imperial military school. She had dreams of one day becoming a Grand Moff and he had supported her through it all. And while she had never understood why her childhood chum, Jehna Brightstar had insisted on always being behind a desk instead of out in the field, Nika had always jumped at the missions that required her to get her hands dirty. The dirtier the better she felt. And yet somehow the desk jocky had ended up becoming the Princess to the Imperial while Nika was still stuck at the rank she had as a Special Agent, this had disenchanted the woman.
But finally her chance had come in for there, aboard the transport that was headed for Kuat, stood Miss Tachi. In her hands was the disc with her new orders for her next task at hand. She was to take over the training and education of the guards assigned to the Moff Seshi. It seemed they were doing a poor job and the Dutchess feared for her safety, as did the Empire. And so they were to send their best agent out right away. Well Nika was sure that they had finally gotten some brains for she had been sent for that very morning. Having not wasted time she had quickly packed her things and set off on the ship bound for the planet.
After some time, Miss Tachi found herself standing before a set of grandly designed doors to be admitted. She had announced herself to what had to be the Moff’s secretary, and then taken up perch in front of a bench. She wasn’t sitting however and instead stood at full attention until she was told to do otherwise. Nika wondered what the Dutchess would be like and just how much reeducation would have to be done with the lower ranked guards.
