Hate is a funny thing. It is such a strange sensation to know that you hated the place you live but oddly miss it due to another. Korriban was a cold, unforgiving planet. Alicia found it colder then space itself. Such was her dislike of the coldness of the planet that at odd hours of the night (or day, it was sometimes hard to tell the difference) missing the harshness of Kalist and it's dying star. Even in the shade of the mountain- out of the eye of the planet's unforgiving primary- it had been so hot in the day that you could only venture outside in the early hours of dusk to escape the confines of the prefabricated garrisons that her predecessors had erected in the two decades since they had landed on the barren rock.
At least Korriban had an Empire to bring it food, water and the other things required for some type of life. Alicia hadn't had that in the place she had called home. In the end she had been the last of the survey team to survive. Although they hadn't known it at the time they had been sent to their deaths by another world called Chandrila. The way her parents and the others they had been surviving with described the world as something akin to a paradise. Fields of Balmgrass and Warren Trees for all the eye to see. On Kalist they had a garden of it built with the help of an underwater reservoir that her biological father had helped excavate in the first year. Eventually the water had run out. The crops all died. By the last year Alicia Drey was all that was left.
The Ghost of Kalist VI.
Discovered by a Sith Champion by the name of Dylus Syn on her last day on the precipice of a cliff during dusk. Ready to jump and end it all before the thirst took her into the afterlife. But he had stopped her. Took her in and made her his property for three years. Taught her in the ways of the dark side and in that time she would rise to the same position as he in the Sith Order.
Now Dylus was gone. Discovered dead by an Acolyte some three standard weeks ago. The rumours which followed immediately pointed the blame in her direction. They were fuelled by the fact that she was due to leave Korriban on board one of the Empire's new Destroyers that were set to enter the known Galaxy. If Alicia was responsible for the murder of the Champion Dylus Syn then leaving the planet and disappearing into the confines of the Empire would be the first step in getting away with it. But Dylus had been a good teacher and the Sith were taught to be more cunning then this. It was too obvious of a method to escape such a crime.
Yet Alicia was leaving and she would depart Korriban soon. Dylus' murderer hadn't yet been discovered. The other question that came to bear was whether or not anyone really cared that he was dead?
