A few moments of static burst through the commwaves, and then a video begins to play. It its obviously being transmitted from a medium-grade holographic reciever, and its being held by someone. A bland, unidentifiable room is seen. Seated in the center of the screen, a Vherokior male is sitting, naked and bound, his hands behind the back of his chair and his feet to each other. His upper face is covered by a black cloth, hiding his identity, though he has a well trimmed soul patch just below his lips. A tall figure swathed in black, with a hood drawn up over his head, a black mask, and thin cloth over his eyes and mouth stands next to him. Behind him stands another figure, holding a Khumaak, similarly dressed. Behind him, smeared across the wall in ugly neon green paint, are the words “Blood traitors, BEWARE!”

The figure next to the seated Vherokior begins to speak, in the common language of the Matari, in a rich, deep voice.

“Brothers and sisters, freedom fighters, battlers of the enslavers. Today we bring for you the face of the true enemy, the most deadly enemy, the enemy within,” The voice has begun to move. Whoever was speaking was pacing. “One hundred years ago our brave ancestors fought and beat the Amarr back, securing our Republic from the deprivations of the slavers. However, though we defeated them then, many of our fellow Matari continue on in slavery. And some, some few, would see all of our brethren back in the chains of the Amarr, slaves to their will and their Vitoc. This, this capsuleer, who claims to be our brother, our friend, our benefactor, is one.”

The man leaned down and ripped the blindfold off the Vherokior. Grak Yarn winces in the light and looks around, and then at the camera, expression one of controlled terror. The man begins speaking after a few seconds. While he speaks, he moved around behind the Vherokior, and leaned over, pulling a small tool from a bag just barely visible.

“Grak Yarn, you are accused of treason. Normally, the punishment for this is death. And so it shall be carried out. However, rather then simply one death, we will make you die a thousand deaths. Look out to the people you have betrayed, mister Yarn, and know they will always imagine your face when the Amarrian slaver takes their children and **** their women.” The man lifts the device, a laser cutting tool, and begins to use it on the Vherokior bare chest. Most of the session is blocked by the bulk of the man, but it is over swiftly, and the Vherokior man gives out a strangled cry before just before the bulky cloaked man steps back. Carved into his chest with practiced procession is the slavers fang, oversized, and steam coils off the cooked flesh.

The man flourished the tool and pointed at Grak with a gloved hand.

“Let no Minmatar, capsuleer or not, consort with the Amarr, and betray their people, lest this be your fate!” the man said dramatically.

"Let this be a warning, capsuleers. You are not invincible. You are not above the justice of the Matari!"

With that the transmission cuts out to nothing.

Julianus grimaces, picking up a datapad and urgently begins tapping something into it

I'm not one to meddle much in Matari affairs... whoever you are. But this is something that cannot stand.

Sets down the datapad again, a look of disgust upon his face

I received the triangulated location of your burst transmission from my intel sources. I've notified local station security and CONCORD officials in the vicinity. You would do well to give up Grak peacefully.

Why is everyone, everytime is feeling sympathy for the offenders? Where is the majority of people who try to defend the victims? Where is the triangulation for slavetraders, the razzia of illegal slavemarkets at the Amarrian borders where thousands and hundreds of thousands of our brothers and sisters are suffering and not are given the least of human rights. Where just this kind of man has fun playing his abnormal games with Minmatarian girls that are still kids?

Where is Concord closing down all those illegal slavetrade markets in the dark sectors of every station in galaxy? Where?

It may look cruel but I think if such a measure prevents slavetraders from following their evil path, if one clip like this prevents the rape of one little sibriesta girl, I think its justified.

Violence is not my way, besides I really love rattling my autocannons and pumping wildly bursting flashes of white hot streams of burning rain of depleded uranium in my targets, I detest scenes like this. But I see that freedom is not given to people who beg for it. Freedom is given to those who take it out of the dead stiff hands of their supressors.

I agree with you. But ya know what happens if those people just hand this poor Grak over to the police? They would laugh, shake his hands with friendlyness and they'll tell us what an innocent and fine salesman this is. And how we could dare to lay our hand on this fine gentleman. And then they will do their duty and throw us in jail. That's the way the authorities handle those things.

There is a really tough lobby who is protecting slavetrade, even inside our republic. Do ya think slavetrade is illegal here? No! Most drugs, ya, especially those who are fun. All illegal. But slavetrade? No!

I do not back this shown cuelty to Grak, no sir. But I understand that some of us take the measures that are needed when nobody inside our state is ready and able to handle it officially. There is no question about the inhumanity, cruelty and monstrosity of slavetrade. Absolutely no question. But nobody takes action. No laws are against it.

And this is the reason why I do not appreciate such things but understand it. Besides this I recommend to set Grak free now. The message is delivered I think. No use to play the savage and begin to torture that guy anymore.

But if I ever meet him again slavetrading I would pike him to the top of my subwaveantennas, without killing him first.

I tell ya what I think we need. We need a law that allows taking action against slavetrade as a bountyhunt at a legal state inside our republic. That would make shure the traders are still alive when they reach the strong arm of justice and also ensures that action is taken if the Concord, police and customs duty fail at this job.

What happens when bloodthirsty vigilantes bring in people they 'know' are slavers ? Or murder people because they 'know' they have done evil ? Like the Elder's butchers did after the sneak attack on the Mandate.

This isn't even an attempt at justice. This is chaos and this is wrong

And do nothing is better? I say a little chaos is always better then the organized evil of an ordered empire. The rightful people even have a chance which they don't if the injustice of the ursupators make the law. I think no gouvernment is better than a bad one. History proves.

So: if the establishment failes in fulfilling their mandate from the people, people should have the right to take over this job by theirselves. And this is how our republic de facto works. If you mess with one of our clans action is taken immediately. Law is working direct and without frills and powdered wigs. Of cause the accused has the right to defend himself. We are no savages. But I can tell you there will be no great fuss be made when we catch a slaver in flagranti. No lawyer will be allowed to take one of these pettifogger tricks that are working at your courts. Direct way I say. Thats the way our justice works - if it works at all which I doubt looking at the slaverymarket.

I think some damn corporations are pumping much money in that trade and that many custom service captains must have be bribed and Concord officers paid to look away and politicians sit on their fat asses, bathing in bribarymoney doing nothing.

Is that what our fathers and grandfathers have been fightin' for?

I say: ACTION - NOW!

Jennifer sits at her desk, her emotionless expression belied by the fury burning in her eyes. The normally tidy work area around her show obvious signs of a recent disturbance.

To the so-called "freedom fighters" who transmitted the previous transmission: you have made a mistake, grave and fatal mistake. You will pay for what you have done to Grak.

The rage previously contained to Jennifer's eyes boils forth, contorting her face and forcing tears from her eyes.

You will BURN!!

A Deteis male steps into pickup range and puts a hand on her shoulder.

I think they got the message, Jenna.

I normally don't condone of violent acts.....or any violence in general...but, i'm making an exception to the rule here. I shall turn my eyes away from the acts of those who put forth the effort to punish those that have done such a reprehensible act against one of my friends.

Destroy those who have took it upon themselves to falsely accuse, capture, and harm Grak.

His own transmission started, Uilliam appearing impacted from just having seen the display.

"I don't care about the right or wrong, or the calls to find those responsible."

Pauses as he seems near overwhelmed between anger and despair.

"I only want someone to make their way to Grak and see if he is still alive and protected, as fast as they can. I myself am heading to the Republic now to see what I can do for my friend in his time of need."

With that Uilliam cuts off the signal.

A new video feed appears, this one set in front of a floating Rupture class cruiser. This one is proffesional, and a semi-large crowd of reporters stands in front of a small platform with a podium on it. A pair of heavily armed warriors step out from the ruptures internals, massive power armor causing the deck to vibrate slightly as they move towards the crowds. Each one clasp a strange, blocky looking weapon tight across their chest, and they take up position aside the podium, silently. Slightly behind them, Grak Yarn walked with the assistance of his staff, face a little gaunt, and rather then his normal flowing open robes, he is clothed in light but concealing robes.

Grak yarn steps up to the small podium, the Yarn family crest located in its center, featuring a rooster on a blue and black field, with a gear, a bed, a pair of crossed spears, and a star set in the corners. He leans heavily on the podium, the pair of massive, hulking powered armor warriors standing on either side of him. He speaks quietly, but firmly.


“Ladies and gentlemen, I have invited you all to come here, and asked that this be broadcast on the galactic network, for two reasons. The first, is to extend my gratitude to all those who have extended it, and my many thanks for offers of vengeance, and enquire about my health. I am to be recovered fully in a week, and plan on having the scars removed…which brings me to my second point.”

He lets out a sigh and looks at the camera, eyes seeming distant “Shortly after the incident, three men were found dead and mutilated in their apartment. I have confirmed that these men are those who tortured me on that video, and station security is finishing up the investigation now.”

He bows his head for a moment “I do not know who did this. I cannot thank them for this, because these men were ignorant, and they died for it. They died for what they believed in.”

With a bit of hesitation, he continues “However, I can thank you, whoever you may be, for caring about me enough to put your life at risk to find these men. I thank you deeply for it. That is all” he states finally, turning and moving to go back to the ship, powered armor giants taking up guarding positions.

**A series of pictures begin to flash over the screen. The first shows a ruined village, smoke rising from the burned houses and bodies littering the street, while distinct amarrian vessels mixed with a smattering of caldari shuttles are seen taking off. The second shows a young minmatar girl-child standing over the body of a minmatar warrior, the smoking gun still in her hand as smirking amarrian soldiers hand over a syrette of Vitoc.
The third shows a dishevelled and thin brutor woman holding tightly to her child as amarrian overseer is buckling up his belt. The final picture flashes up showing a pile of minmatar corpses being dozed into a small trench while other minmatars, work with shovels to cover the dead.

The screen shifts to show a young well built man who sits looking into the camera.**

It never ceases to amaze me that people are willing to condone the acts of genocide and slavery of an entire people, while cry about a few scars on a single man and its not even as if those scars are permanent, the next clone jump he makes resolves that issue. I never knew the men who carried out that act nor do I really know nor care about the one upon which was marked, but I cannot decry the tribulations of one man when millions are enslaved and murdered on a weekly basis.

I have seen the breeding farms that some “holders” run, I have also seen the huts containing torture tools and other implements of humiliation red with the blood of the innocents.
As far as I am concerned, if the acts of one scarring is enough to stop even one person from trading in human flesh, however unlikely that is, I would rejoice and revel in the bloodshed for at least this time the only people to die are those that committed this act of scarification.


This time…

Name of the system, planet, the local area, the time this took place and how you came in possesion of these images would be useful to verify your claims.

While I don't doubt your words directly, I'd like to know the source of these materials, I'm with the Minmatar in the Amarr/Minmatar war, but I'm also a curious bugger and would like proof.

Also, to claim that the Caldari is assisting the Amarr directly in the slave-raids is... bold. It is bold indeed. There might ofcourse be the fact these are rogues acting on their own, or that the Amarr merely want you to think the Caldari are involved. Regardless of fact this imagery smears the State's name for sure, if it is true.

((OOC: I know it might be hard to cook up an imaginary planet somewhere or use one present in EVE atm, and then claim a point in time, but honestly, there is no way we can verify this in game, thus it gets.... tiresome that people bring this up as "facts". While we all know slave runs do happen and that the Caldari are officially allies of the Amarr, it's a bit silly to claim they help in the slave runs directly. The State has more integrity and honor than that. Of course, that don't stop rogue elements from helping out.))

Firstly I have no real desire to verify my claims but since you requested so eloquently I will endevour to give you that which you seek.

The first picture was the now destroyed town of Rhalen's hope in Amo, it wont appear in your history files because unfortunately during the raid most of the population was either killed or captured and the republic government as is its wont covered it up. That picture was taken by one of the relief soldier's sent because of the local Governor's request for assistance. I know this happened because I was there, it was my hand that took the picture.

The second one according to the info-packet that arrived with it was taken during the elder's assault into hostile space during the fairly recent upheaval's, around the time the concord assembly was hit by the same fleet.
It is the screen capture from a soldier helmet optical system, the same soldier you see with the hole in the brain pan, killed according to my information by the young girl to gain her "fix" of vitoc or at least that's what I assume is in the syrette. That has not been confirmed but it does make a rather striking image does it not.

The final image is lifted directly from a spy cam infiltrated by a special forces operative into an amarrian slave compound in Sarum Prime, that was a few years ago now but still another evocative image. Again I know this one to be accurate as it was taken by myself about six months before I embarked on capsuleer training when I was still serving with the republic in its armed forces.What i did not show was that the woman was not the target of the Amarrian's affection as it has be supposed, I wont go into details but suffice to say, three minutes after that picture was taken the Amarrian was dead, some how he has fallen and impaled himself on a rather large knife of makes unknown.

I hope that these descriptions have gone somewhat towards swaying your doubts of their authenticity, because quite frankly I wont be discussing it again.

Secondly I never insinuated that the caldari were assisting the amarrian's in their raids, only that caldari ships were spotted within the fleet, but even the most green cadet know that capsuleer's will learn more than one class of racial variance, it is safe to assume that the non capsule capable pilots would do likewise. I myself fly both the more familiar Minmatar vessels and the more exotic gallente. I am afraid standard infantry gear does not contain a transponder ident system, so i cannot for certain say that they were indeed piloted by caldari, likely they were merc's of a sort.

If that is all, its been a pleasure and perhaps we can speak again through more ... conventional channels.

Yay, brother torturing brother. How original.

No seriously, when will people ever consider to let bygones be bygones?

Maybe a empire-wide history-wipe would help, or yet another war that bombs us back into the stoneage.

Some people should really consider using Vitoc for I have seen "slaves" than have been happier in their drugged state than most free Matari will ever be.

Mr. Yarn,

I am dispatching the 3rd Division Marines of my personal security forces to assist in your protection and defense from what can only be considered ignorant extremists.

Further, I am placing the 1st and 2nd Divisions on alert should any others be kidnapped for expressing views of peace and tolerance.

To those who would seek to use kidnapping, torture, and violence on those who call for peace and disagree with genocide, heed my words: I fight for the cause of the Matari, but if this persecution of innocents continues then you will come to understand more closely your own mortality.

It is not a sin or crime to befriend other races evenm the Amarr and though we of the Matari Milta are at war with them and the Caldari their can be no wrong in talking and befriending those out side the Republic and Federation.
For through Friendship comes Understanding and through Understanding shall come Peace.

Continue to be strong Grak Yarn be resilent and let not these vile creatures who marks you and call you trator weaken your spirit, there are those who look up to you........all ways.

May your Ancestors continue to watch over you bring you from harm!
