The job was simple, mostly. Xol and a band of thugs he never met before were about to share an intimate experience with each other. Before them lied a simple town filled with simple people. Their bank, however, was about to be ransacked by a not-so-simple group of Syndicate members. The Enforcer had a plan of how to go about such a delicate operation, and he wanted it to be followed to the letter. If anyone was getting their pay, it was Xol Zaa Fenn, the Will of Crymorah.

<"Listen close, skin-suits, because I'm only going to say this once."> Xol grumbled to his companions. <"The rat is going to have to refrain from literally blowing up the operation. This is going to be a stealth operative. Instead, you and my droid, Punchee, will enter in through the roof. There should be a few access points into a few shafts and air ventilation systems that will lead you to the main vault. Punchee will deactivate the security measures and cameras so you're furry ass doesn't sizzle like the dual sons of Tatooine. When you reach the main vault, kill the guards. No loose ends. No survivors" The EX-Pirate explained, using a hologram of the bank's architecture schematic thanks to his ID-21 Seeker droid and companion, Punchee.

<"Meanwhile, me and the little miss are going through the front entrance. I will create a distraction for the girly so she can get behind the front desks and disable the main alarm systems. If you could use that wrinkly brain of yours to screw with the system the best you can, that will also be acceptable. After my distraction, I will hold the main room hostage. The girly will then meet the rat at the main vault where you two will blow the vault and steal everything you can get your small hands on. You two will then leave through the back doors with Punchee while I take care of the hostage situation."> The hologram shut off and Xol readied himself. Punchee chirped and whistled excitedly from behind it's gritty companion.


<"The rest will be history...and for the love, don't dent up my droid. Or I'll put a dent in you.">

Rat..? Harleen thought, who the fhtagn did this guy think he was? Harleen held a scowl on her face while the Tognath spoke. She'd been with him five minutes and she already didn't like him, the transparent eye lid having, not being able to breath air piece of... Rat!?! Harleen thought louder as he called her that again. Harleen was here because Grace needed her to be, and if it weren't for that she wouldn't be caught dead spending more than half a second with this kriffing skat head. You're not very pleasant... Harleen said..

We can try it your way, but when it fails we default back to a way that works.. Harleen said, her tone somewhat demeaning. She didn't like him...

Harleen had checked each and every hard point on her armour, and each weapon was fully functional, such remedial checks were completed before she even met up with this crew. Though Harleen recognized the woman, @Mae Tecono from that time she'd helped the Pykes storm that huge ship. She couldn't recall spending much time with her, but she had to be more pleasant than this thing, Harleen rolled her eyes as she looked at the face mask wearing alien.

Whenever you're ready.. Harleen said.

Mae had worked hard to be considered more than a "girly" and she, like Harleen did not appreciate this mask hiding fool calling her such.

"Okay, while Boomette, and I are doing our thing, what will you be doing with the hostage's, Ugly?" She asked the masked man. She remembered the small creature from a previous mission and remembered her brother was part of it and had called her such on a few occasions. So she decided to call her that and show a little respect rather then give her a foul nickname. As for the masked man, why else would he cover his face for anything else then having an ugly mug and found "Ugly" an appropriate nickname in return for just that reason.

She followed the ugly son of a nerf herder as they went for the main entrance.

Xol gave the two a sideways glance. They weren't friends and for all the Enforcer knew, these two could ruin the entire operation and screw everyone over. They would not see any respect from Xol until they had proved themselves. Harleen's doubt in the masterplan was not at all helpful, either. If she decided to go AWOL, then Xol would see to it that her head be mounted on a wall.
Personally.


<"It will work if you do as your told."> Xol scoffed. <"The quicker we get in there, the quicker we get out."> And then Mae expressed concern for the hostages. What did she think he was going to do? Play patty-cake and buy them all drinks? <"I'll do what I do best. Now you two can either follow me, or stay out of my way."> Xol was quite capable of doing this job by himself. The reason why he was being accompanied with these two loonies was beyond him.

Punchee hovered over to Harleen and chirped happily about starting the mission. Regardless of how much Xol disliked the trigger-happy rat, she was probably the key component to the mission. If she failed her small part, then Xol and Mae would be totally screwed over.

Xol followed Mae into the front entrance about ten or so feet away from her so that no one thought they were associated with each other. A security guard decided to stop Xol, however, but before he could get a word out, the Enforcer had flung one of his DE-10s in a quickdraw and shot the opposing man dead. Panic ensued around Xol as people began running and screaming, all of which only made Xol chuckle.


<"This is a robbery! Everyone get down on the ground and lay on your back with your arms and feet in the air like a dead cow."> Xol ordered after he finished off with the rest of the guards. The hostages froze before doing what they were told. It may have looked ridiculous, but it was the easiest way for the Tognath to make sure none of them could do anything stupid. <"You scream, you die. You move, you die. You complain, you die. Sound simple enough?"> He'd spare the little children and the elderly, of course, but everyone else was cannon fodder.

Harleen chuckled lightly as the Droid chirped, she'd the pet the small floating droid, she had quite the affinity for them, and in fact a ship full of droids, she was only one small person, and her ship required more than a few, the unpredictability of organics always hung over her, which is why she employed so many droids. Aww, aren't you sweet.. Harleen would say to the droid, it was too bad it's owner wasn't...

Once they got started Harleen walked around the side of the building and kicked on her jet pack, the flying droid following her up as she used just enough juice to get to the roof, not wanting to attract too much attention as she drilled out the grate that covered the vents, as she did so the little droid was already splicing into the security system from the access point, it whirred and beeped several times telling Harleen it was done, Come on boy! Harleen said as she dove in, the droid flying in behind her.

The inside of the vent was full of dust and rust, but Harleen and the small droid trucked on, pushing through the vents until she found her target, another grate stood in her way. Harleen flicked out her fusion cutter just as she heard the screams from elsewhere in the building echoing through the ventilation, so much for a stealth operation.. as long as they kept everyone out of the vault it would be fine... or so Harleen told herself..

Only a minute later or so Harleen dropped down into the vault, the happy droid following her in a moment later, You're gonna have to come home with me.. Harleen said as she pet the droid again.

Mae watched as Ugly dropped the guard without a thought. She wondered if all of this was worth it and pondered the idea of dropping him with a quick headshot, but thought the wiser to just put her head down and get the job done. As they entered the doors, and Ugly had subdued the customers and employees, Mae did a quick dash and flip over the counter in front of her, landing a foot away from a man who had to be the bank manager, reaching for the silent alarm under the counter. She pulled the vibro claws from her waste and quickly removed his hand from his wrist. "That was very foolish of you" She spat at him before jamming her splicer into the console in front of her and quickly sidestepping the weak firewall that they had placed in the circuitry and began to make a mess of the security system for the bank. She took extra effort to not disturb the systems that would alert external security if tampered with. She then radioed to Harleen, that the security had been disabled.

Punchee excitedly relayed Mae's message to Harleen, buzzing and beeping for her to set the explosives on the vault so they could crack into the planet's wealth. With the alarm systems disabled, the trio would have an extra five or ten minutes to grab what they needed and leave.

To Xol's surprise, however, there was a hostage who had a lot to say about the situation. It was some bratty little kid that was being hushed and ushered to shut his mouth by his mother's urgent requests.
"You can't do this to my mom! Do you know who she is?" The kid was standing upright, earning stares from everyone else who were still on their backs.

"A dead womannn?" Xol slurred in basic, taking aim on the kid before changing his target to the woman. This earned a couple shrill cries from the hostages. The kid, however, didn't lose his defiant glare. So, Xol fixed his face after he shot his pleading mother in the head. <"That, ladies and gentlemen, was my warning shot. Anyone else feel like seeing if I give a damn about your opinion?">

The little boy was trying to wake up his dead mother- he was around twelve or so, but that didn't matter. Maybe he'd grow up to hate Xol and try and get revenge. The Tognath chuckled at the thought. <"Slicer, assist our furry little friend. Grab everything you can and get out of here."> Xol said to his smaller companion before taking out a few timed explosives out of his duffel bag, setting them up around the perimeter of the building. <"I will be taking care of our hostage situation.">

Harleen had never robbed a bank before, she was shoving credit chits into every available pocket, pouch, and bag. Then the droid behind her chirped up, Mae was done with her part, looking over at the vault door the previously red light was now green.. Harleen jumped over there and hit the button, spinning the wheel and the vault door popped, ready for Mae to enter.

Harleen took out the dufflebags, and tossed them to different areas of the vault. She just needed a little more time, as she shoved entire piles of the chits into the duffle bags, an armful at a time..

Mae was excited to jam up the security systems and looked up with a buzzing of excitement just in time to see Xol shoot the mother in the head. Her excitement quickly faded to a dull pain in her gut. She was all about being ruthless, but a mother right in front of her kid? She decided right there and then, that she would not be doing anymore missions with Xol. unless he was under a bit more control and restraint. Bringing down the house on all the hostage's like she knew he was planning is one thing but to execute a mother right in front of a child was too much.

She popped out of her dreadful gaze at Xol and headed to the vault. She knew that time was short and they would only score on the credits that they were able to get in this small time slot. As you ran into the vault, she nodded at Harleen and began to cram credits into the duffle bags that Harleen had provided. "Did you know what this guy was capable of when you took this job?" She asked Harleen as she hurried her packing.

Mae paused and saw a small group of safe deposit boxes in the corner. The whole vault was full of credits and just a few boxes so she knew that their contents had to be of some value. She fused through the face plates and quickly emptied their contents into her own pockets as she frantically tried to get as much as possible in the dwindling time frame. Once the allowed time was about 15 seconds from elapsing, she grabbed her bags of loot and went over to Harleen and informed her "15 seconds" and then headed for the exit. She grabbed a few of the bags next to Harleen to assist her. She did not ask if she needed the help but assumed it would be pleasant surprise among the other of the heist.

Xol headed out the back exit, tailing the other two robbers. In his hand was the detonator that would bring the whole building crashing down. The little boy mourning his mother would soon be relieved of his pain and join her once again. Xol considered it a mercy more than anything. Pzob was a backwater planet that fed off the backs of the working-lower class while the upper class enjoyed the spoils.

Once they were far enough away from the bank, hidden away from the Authorities, he pressed the blinking red button that blew the bank away. The shockwave was powerful enough that the earth rumbled beneath his feet. The Tognath could only chuckle at the art he created and he wondered if Harleen would've been as marveled as he was. Mae didn't seem to enjoy Xol's way of doing work, but he couldn't care less. They had gotten away with the majority of the bank's credits without any follow up problems. Even if the Enforcer was a little violent, he was efficient. Efficiency got you power, respect, and money to afford everything else.


<You two preformed marvelously. Harleen, you should make a carrier out of burglary. You're built for it. Mae, you're potential as a slicer could one day amount to that of Kara Lok. But you have to be willing to do whatever takes. You have to want it.> He informed the two. <Now for the final part of the plan...We each take a third of what we gathered. We'll need to split up to avoid capture, but in the event that one of is capture, they'll only have a fraction of what we stole.> Xol explained as Punchee hovered over his shoulder, waving his little manipulator arms at Harleen.

<Any questions? Remember...no witnesses.>

As Mae joined Harleen in the vault to quicken the pace of their robbery, both of them hurriedly shoving arm fulls of credits into the bags, and their pockets, and anywhere they could stuff them.. He's probably a murderous dog.. Harleen responded, at that moment she couldn't help but think of Rafe, she'd seen him do some pretty brutal skat.. which made her think of Grace, then Slick, and eventually all of her companions.. Though I guess.. Harleen would start, We all are.. images of all the various explosions she'd perpetrated flashing through her head as she zipped the last dufflebag up, when Mae grabbed some of them Harleen nodded, very appreciative of the help, Harleen was small, and carrying all of it would have been difficult.

The two bolted out of the Vault and around the corner, smashing through the rear exit and running for it. Eventually @Xol caught up to them, a shiney device in his hand before he pressed the glowing red button. Harleen's eyes nearly trippled in size and her jaw dropped in excitement once the explosion rang out, the resulting cloud rising into the air and the ground beneath their feet shaking. Wow... Harleen said slowly.

She'd barely heard him speaking, but caught just enough of it to think, Is he being nice now?.. she supposed maybe, like Rafe, he needed to see them in action to respect them, still though, very much unlike Rafe this man's level of disrespect beforehand was considerable.. either way Harleen nodded her head in appreciation of the compliment.

She'd set down two of the duffle bags she held, Sounds good, get these back to Grace.. Harleen would say her eyes flicking back to the explosion they'd left behind, Nice work.. I gotta get me some of those.. whatever they were.. What were they? Harleen asked, suddenly serious. Regardless of the situtation Harleen would wait for an answer before high tailing it out of there, radioing ahead to her droids to get the ship off the ground and using her jet pack to fly upwards in time to enter the ramp of her ship carrying the bags of loot.

Over the comms, Harleen radioed @Mae Tecono and @Xol Good work guys.. let's get out of here.. she'd say as she made her way through her ship.

Mae too was surprised at Xol's comments. "I do want it, and a almost any cost, but not at the unnecessary and brutish murder of a mother in front of her child, no matter the pill of a child he was. Would knocking her out before you brought the building down on them been the same outcome? No, you enjoy the sadistic side of killing a bit too much. You proved that you don't want it either, you have given up on all of humanity and self awareness. Power comes in many forms, and the road to yours is a lonely one." She replied as she dropped a duffle bag for part of his share. She then turned to Harleen "As for you, it was once again a pleasure doing business with you and I hope to see you around again soon. Say hi to Slick for me when you see him." She said before turning and going her own way.

Mae took her share in two duffle bags and made her way to the cantina where her men were waiting. Her men grabbed the two duffle bags and the 3 of them made their way to her ship and left without further thought on the ruble of a town that they left.

Harleen seemed alright, but Mae didn't. In fact, she even went as far as telling Xol what he already knew. The Tognath only chuckled at the naïve woman's comments. She had no idea what she was getting into if she thought that the Syndicates weren't filled with people just like Xol.

<Tell me something I don't know, missy. I'm not going to justify my actions because I don't care. The operation is complete and you have your blood-money. If you think there is honor amongst thieves, you are going to be poorly mistaken. It's everyone's neck for themselves, and if you're not careful, your mother gets a blaster bolt to the head.> The Enforcer scoffed before picking his two duffel bags of credits to his own ship, with no intention of giving it away to the Zaa Consortium. Of course, this was all apart of the plan all along.


<You signed your soul to the devils, girly. You ain't getting it back, and if you think you will...you're path is going to be just as lonely as mine.> Xol grumbled.
