Hey everyone! Here's my character intros for SWRP. I used different lightning in this creation for nighttime, and for a more mysterious aesthetic for this creation. Hope you all enjoy!
About this creation
Rytch Talos crouched behind the right thruster of his ARC-170 Starfighter. He watched intently at two Century Republic soldiers to inspect the ARC-170. He might've parked the ship in a private landing bay without a permit. He didn't care, though. "I have the right!" he thought.
If those guards only knew what, who, they had stumbled upon. Rytch Talos never played easy. But he would today, and just for today. He didn't want to look bad the day he withdrew his resignation.
Eyeing the speeder the two officers had arrived in, Rytch decided that would be his ride out of the port.
"Open up!" one of the soldiers shouted. He didn't know there was no one inside the cockpit of that ARC-170.
Rytch made a blast for the speeder. One of the soldiers noticed him and started firing. Rytch was never as quiet as he had wanted himself to be.
Rytch pulled his pistol from its rest at his left hip. He wanted to shoot to kill, but he wouldn't allow himself. He set his pistol to stun, and hit the two soldiers. It was like nothing. Rytch climbed into the speeder and exited the port. This left him a small fish in a big lake: the capital city of the Century Republic, Rishi City. Coincidentally, it was also the capital of the planet Rishi.
Rytch flew the speeder out into the open of Rishi City. He was high above the surface, flying among the tops of skyscrapers and other speeders, some bigger, some smaller. He knew where he was going: the Military Operations Base. That's where he could withdraw his resignation. Rytch was tired of living a life as a wanderer, and wanted his old job back.
However, Rytch had tried so hard to weave through the speeders whizzing by he had forgotten his destination. He just caught the Military Operations Base- however, he just passed it on his right. Making a sharp and dangerous turn, Rytch squinted at his target, dead set on it.
Rytch blasted the speeder forward and made braced for a hard landing. He did his best to land the speeder safely, but instead he skidded the speeder across the metal landing port. Sparks flew behind him.
As Rytch got out of the speeder, sirens wailed. He must have set off some alarm. Rytch kept his pistol at the ready, along with the other gadgets that came with his Mandalorian armor.
Rytch had spotted the officers' entrance. That's what he was looking for, else he wouldn't get any attention from Admiral Buchanan Gunther.
He approached the blast door with caution. Suddenly, out came a squad of soldiers, led by a Mandalorian, with weapons at the ready. They stepped aside for an older bald man with a thick mustache and a younger, slightly more dazed, man. Those two were Admiral Gunther and his assistant, Jim Alker.
Gunther stepped close to Rytch and smirked. "Well, well, well," he snickered, "if it isn't Rytch Talos. You've aged, haven't you? You must've been at least ten years younger when I last saw you. What does that make you? Fourty-five?"
Rytch sighed. "Yes. And the last time I saw YOU, you were ten years younger AND not bald. You had a really thick head of hair. How'd you lose it, Buchanan?"
Gunther snarled. Not only was he insecure about his baldness, but hated being called by his first name. "Refer to me as Gunther, or Admiral Gunther," he said, with a bit more frustration. "What have you come here for?"
"My old job back." Rytch retorted, shrugging.
Gunther laughed. "The position of Vice Commander-in-Chief has been taken- by me. I hold the second most powerful leadership in the Century Republic's military- second only to the President. Why do you want it back, anyways?"
"Just got tired of being a wanderer. I've seen the galaxy. I want my position back, and I think I will get it back." Rytch answered.
"I don't think I can make it hap-"
"If you can't 'make it happen,' then maybe I should send a holomessage to President Ord that Admiral Gunther didn't give back the position of Vice Commander-in-Chief to the man that turned a weak militia force into a fierce military operation." Rytch said sternly, with more frustration in his voice.
Gunther scowled. "Listen here, Talos, I'll give you your position back, but don't think I'll go easy on you just because you turned a 'weak militia force,' as you call it, into a military. Get inside."
Admiral Gunther, Jim Alker, and the squad of soldiers returned inside. Rytch followed suit, but a single soldier followed Rytch carefully. Gunther still didn't trust, or like, Rytch. The door closed behind Rytch, leaving the night lights of Rishi City behind him.
--Meanwhile, in an outpost on Risha--
Carlos Kydak rushed into Cliff and Rhoads' bedroom. A white Mandalorian followed after him, searching for the two missing people. Where were they? How did they disable the security cameras? How did they manage to steal two starfighters from the docking bay? So many questions had been left unanswered.
"Start searching," Carlos ordered.
"Yessir," the soldier replied.
There were a lot of things in the bedroom of Cliff and Rhoads Talos. The two brothers had left a huge mess, even though they never cared to pick it up. However, what was most important was what wasn't there: Cliff and Rhoads Talos.
Carlos glanced at the table. There were some bottles, drinks, an old banana, and a note. The note peeked Carlos's curiosity. He picked it up.
"Hey, I found a note." Carlos told the soldier. "It reads, 'Dear Carlos- If you're reading this, it's probably because you're searching our room and we're not there. Well, we aren't. We've left. Dad's back, so we wanna go visit him. And tell him about you-know-who. Maybe we'll even find Mom! Don't come after us. We would've taken you along, but you didn't act like you wanted to come. You never acted like that. Sincerely- Cliff Talos and Rhoads Talos. P.S. Don't throw away ANY of our stuff. Except the old banana. That's disgusting.'"
Carlos looked up, with a look of worry on his face. "You-know-who..." he sighed. "I do know who. And if I know what he's like, he wants to kill those two. We gotta get to Rishi."

Interesting. What era? 'cause ARC-170s weren't in the OR...
Oh dang. You're right. It is in the OR era, I just had originally planned for this storyline to be in an era with ARC-170s. But it's a trivial issue. Nothing major, I'll just know to reference it as something else.
