    Celice was amazed at her master's response, and hoped that she might be as good as him in the future.

    Seeing the half of the saber coming toward her, Celice spun away, then, turning back toward her master, she lundged forwarward, bring her blade down, in an attempt to jab hm in the right leg.

    OOC:

    Sorry for the delay.

    Watching her reaction he nodded. She created space to avoid the blade, dancing away like a top was a good move in combat. Know your surrounding as you fight, and with the force it was a much more effective move than without. But then she dived back jabbing toward a low target. Merely dipping his blade he caught hers and pushed it to the side away and clear, the point was not to catch, merely deflect.

    With one step forward he punched at her right shoulder with his left hand.

    The man who had abandoned any identity other than Revanchist entered the arena. Cowl so dark it cast shadows over his entire face no matter the angle of light, the man exuded darkness. In one gloved hand, he held an ignited purple lightsaber, his only link to his former self.

    IC: SG-12 "Twelve"

    The Saber Guard was dressed head-to-foot in polished grey armour, and his helmet, reminiscent of those of the Imperial Royal Guard, had an illuminated white T-visor.

    He did not want to be here, but, specialising in combat with two lightsabres, he had lost one in the last game, and some officious jobsworth would not let his choob into the sequel without getting some refresher training in using just one lightsabre.

    He descended the rough-hewn grey stone steps to the spare arena, coming abreast and to the left of the dark-cowled individual holding an ignited, humming, purple lightsabre.

    "How do!" He nodded with forced cheerfulness, one hand on the pommel of the remaining unlit hilt, hanging from his right hip. "So hows this sith work? Do we get a numbered ticket that gets called out by someone?"

    Noticing the two newcomers from where she's been watching in the shadows, her cat-like ears flick slightly in barely contained impatience and agitation as her hands brush the two saber hilts hanging at her sides beneath her cloak. "No ticket. There's just not been sufficient interest in sparring between strangers. Most of these are Master/Padawan couples. I've been here for a good long while and no one new's come in." She looks the two men up and down slowly, sizing them up and taking mental notes on each of them. "Until the two of you, that is. What brings you to this isolated and sparsely populated training centre?"

    Though no one would see it through the shadows covering his face, his jaw dropped when the being came out of the shadows and addressed them. He dampened his Force presence, both so no one would sense his shock, and so that his former Master would not recognize him. As memories long forgotten came unbidden to the front of his mind, he charged at her, suddenly quite glad he'd entered the arena with his lightsaber ignited.

    TAG: Shira

    OOC: The Revanchist was once Anakin, I made this somewhat of a future tense for him. He turned to the dark side, was partially redeemed, and then lost everything in a war on his homeworld. He abandoned the identity of Anakin and took on the name Revanchist.

    Sensing the swift and quite sudden offensive attack, Shira quickly ignites both blades in time to block the blade bearing down on her. Wincing as the blow jars her small, slim form, she peers into the hood, trying to make out the identity of the silent being who is seemingly so eager to lash out at her. Being unable to make anything out, she ducks out from under him, gaining enough time to remove her cloak and face the man, circling slowly around him in a defensive starting posture. She looks him up and down, scrutinizing him and taking in every detail about his form and movements before jumping back at him, swinging both blades horizontally at him.

    He stared at the being with the two cats on her head, jealous that she had two blades with which to defend herself.

    Catching the jealousy in the other man standing by the wall, she shoots him a glance as she darts around her assailant. "You could always create a new one, you know. You've built one, you can create another. And one saber isn't going to keep you from dueling."

    As Shira darts around him and speaks to the Mando (the Revanchist assumed by his T-visor), the Revanchist backflips to land right in front of Shira. He kicks at one of her hands, hoping to disarm her of one of her lightsabers, and quickly follows with a sideswipe to her midsection.

    Alisha sat ready and waiting patiently on a shortened pillar in the arena. Her two lightsaber hilts rested at her belt, and her arms were crossed with a confident air. This time, she was waiting on her elder brother, Ananta. His latest string of jokes had plastered her picture all over the Holonet, and she was eager to offer retribution!

    Ananta walks in and shyly looks down at his belt, without trying to look like he is, to make sure he remembered to bring his lightsaber. He nods respectfully in Alisha's direction and removes his brown robe and folds it upon a stone.

    Alisha held back a light chuckle at his entrance, and lightly hopped down from the stone pillar. She brushed some fallen dust from her sand-colored robes, and took out her heirloom lightsaber hilt.

    "Hey! I'm glad you could make it!" she called out to Ananta with a smile. Igniting the bright green blade, she slowly circled him in the Ataru base stance. "I hope you remember a thing or two from the Rancor Pit!"

    Stoically stroking his bearded chin, Ananta removes his weapon from his belt and presses a button on the hilt that plays a raspy, electronic, recorded sound of a lightsaber being ignited. Upon closer inspection, Alisha detects a price tag still attached to the hilt, which appears to be made of plastic, and that the saber resembles those she had once observed the street vendors selling to children on Coruscant.

    He grins at her, ever so slightly.

    Alisha didn't know whether to laugh or to feel offended. A toy lightsaber! A toy! "This is no time for games!"

    She ignited her green blade, and lunged. With a single flick of her wrist, the phony lightsaber was cut clean in half, with the 'blade' end smoldering on the ground. She could only hope that her prankster brother had a real lightsaber with him...

    Pretending for a moment to look down sadly at his divided sword, Ananta then extends his hand to where his robe lays. A lightsaber begins to emerge from within the folds, and then zips through the air igniting mid-flight, and lands squarely in his palm. Raising his blade above and behind his head in the traditional opening Soresu stance, he extends his other arm, pointing two fingers directly at Alisha.

    Thank goodness, he remembered his real lightsaber! Alisha just shook her head with a smile playing on her face, and after acknowledging Ananta's opening stance, rushed forward once more.

    She targeted his vulnerable side, going for a swing towards his hip.

    Partially withdrawing his concentration within in order to allow the Force to more fully guide his saber's response, Ananta intuitively brings down his blade vertically in front of Alisha's strike and feels the first impact of her well-honed capabilities reverberate in his shoulders absorbing the blow. Side-stepping simultaneously and turning 180 degrees he brings his blade down where her feet are about to step.

    In the far corner of the arena, Ananta spies a new acquaintance @tnek89 observing the proceedings, and gestures with his eyes in greeting.

    Alisha's eyes followed the tip of Ananta's lightsaber as he deflected her first strike, all the way down to the ground. She couldn't stop her feet from landing, but with a sharp twist the blade's heat just grazed the leather of her boots. Wincing slightly at the heat, she quickly smacked his blade away with her own. This time, she targeted his torso, going for a straight stab.

    "Master Ananta!", a voice calls from the side of the arena. Into the light steps a young padawan. He puts a discontented hand through his dark, dirty-blonde hair.

    "You weren't at the temple today. The council wasn't pleased. So they sent me here to get you," he says as he walks toward the dueling duo. "You probably don't remember me from the other day, but I'm your new padawan, Jerbok Nek."

    Following the momentum of Alisha's defensive swipe, Ananta crouches low and spins, arching his back convexly in order to vacate the space where her precision stab was thrust within a hair's width of his tunic. He then immediately returns to a standing position and a Soresu defensive-cocoon posture, rolling the wrist of his blade hand and flashing his saber in a rhythmic windmill motion, while simultaneously allowing its soothing hum to calm himself further into the Force, and then speaks to her...

    Seems like quite a spell since our shared adventures in the Rancor Pit, though I can still fondly recall several of the spontaneously devised tactics we unleashed together there.

    TAG: @Padawan4687
    Seeing the newly familiar face coming towards them, Ananta takes in his words and then turns to Alisha with a grin at their import.

    Sent for me have they? Surely they won't mind if we take a moment more to put into practice what it is they are trying to teach us via books. You are welcome to spectate...or ignite your new blade and join the fray, assuming that Alisha first agrees.

    IC: Alisha Tano
    Sparring Arena

    Alisha smiled fondly at the memory of the chaos they had caused back in the Rancor Pit. Yes, they certainly had created plenty of spontaneous attacks back then...

    Before Alisha could prepare another lunge, a boy's voice called out for Ananta. She looked at him with a raised eyebrow, unverbally wondering just when he had been made a Master. It wasn't anything she couldn't ask him about later though...Then again, the last time she was invited to a three-way battle, she crossed blades with a terrifying Dark Man!

    "A three-way duel, huh?"

    With her free hand, she sent the new arrival a friendly wave.

    "I don't mind it, you can join in if you like, Jerbok!"

    "Actually I'd be happy be happy to spar with you two! We just gotta make it quick. I don't want the council to be as mad as me as they are with him." the young padawan answers to his superior's offer. He reaches his hand down to a strap on his boot. From here he grabs his golden lightsaber hilt.

    "Are you ready?" Nek says as a dark emerald green blade ignites from his hilt. He then performs a simple Makashi salute, tilting his head to both of his opponents. As he looks for the weaknesses and flaws in both of his adversaries forms, he keeps his blade low, still following basic Makashi style. He studies each person carefully.

    OOC: Paddy all of the titles are only in RP fun, as is Jerbok's message from the Council. ;)

    IC: Ananta Chetan
    Sparring Arena

    Nodding at Jerbok's query, Ananta takes two Force Speed enhanced steps towards the newcomer and pulls his saber in tight to his chest before in one giant swirling motion bringing the blade down at robe's end height into a soft sweeping strike at his ankles. Simultaneously, with his opposite hand, he then reaches out through the Force to concentrate upon the saber hilt held in Alisha's hands, and gives it a gentle playful tug to see if she's holding onto it mindfully.

    Alisha held her lightsaber hilt at the ready as Ananta rushed forward at the new arrival, swinging in a low sweep. She was going to hang back a moment, until she felt an invisible tug on her hilt. It only slightly jolted her grip on her lightsaber for a second, but the culprit was clear. Her eyes locked onto her brother's with a mock glare, and she lightly twirled her own blade in the same teasing manner before bringing it down to his chest again.
