Another busy night in Mos Eisley saw the vacationing Hutt Cartel return from vacation and get right back into the swing of what Hutts do best, business. And tonight was no different despite the lack of Odominic presence. The Hutts this night were Anda Anjiliac, Jengaz Besadii, Rolga Bareesh.. Tompunka arrived late but fashionable with a jawa in tow that looked like Stubz, and a new Hutt who would later join them on the thrones. The night was majordomo’ed by Minx Bade and Emily. Minx Bade started the nights activities.
Minx Bade: “Guest of the Hutts, I bid you welcome, those having business with the Cartel please see the lovely miss Emily and she will pass that on to me, when I call you step to the center and you will be heard”
Sukka the Hutt: “Fellow Hutts, I am Lord Sukka I am the owner of this cantina and others. I have come to you this night to speak on seeking a position on the Council. I represent the Kajidic Desjilunka.
Jengaz Besadii almost immediatly called him to join them onstage: “Great, please, sit with us, it is great to meet you”
Then Anda Anjiliac spoke up: “the Cartel recognizes and is honored to be joined by the Great Lord Sukka Desiljunka who has applied for membership to the cartel, we would ask that he join us for the proceedings this evening.” and the new hutt lumbered up on stage and took a throne towards the back.
Stepping back to the center Minx Bade called up the first speaker: “The mighty Hutt Cartel calls Cassandra Nymphea”
Cassandra Nymphea approached and when she was ready addressed the Hutts in their own language: “Praised and mighty Lords. The 13th Legion bids you their thanks, and sends me as their latest representative for introduction. You all are aware of the Legions business, and we have been in good standing ever since. To refresh this relationship, the 13th Legion offers a gift, to the assembled might that is your Assembly.” She then clapped her hands and a small chest was carried over to her, when she opened it a green crystal floated up enough where it could easily be seen by the Hutts and the audience, pauses a moment before continueing… “This crystal is one from a moon that is almost forgotten. The third moon of Eralam, destroyed by a might so large, that even it could not prevail. So that our offer and relationship is not forgotten, this crystal is the gift to the Cartel, to be done with as your wise minds see fit.”
Rolga Bareesh spoke up: “The 13th Legion honors us with allegiance and gifts, truly a move of friendship, and one to be remembered.”
Jengaz Besadii: “We thank the 13th Legion, we appreciate this gesture, and we will keep this crystal with us to remember this moment.”
Anda Anjiliac: “Your observance of protocol and manners is noted… with what business do you come to speak to the Cartel?
The crystal was then gathered up by Minx Bade and delivered to Anda who motioned for Emily to secure it. While this was going on Cassandra Nymphea answered Anda’s question: “A simple reminder, and my first task as relations officer of the 13th Legion, your Lordship. If you have need to contact the Legion in the future, with a job proposal or business related, feel free to contact me to have the terms negotiated.” again speaking what appears to be fluent Huttese. After she was excused Minx called up the next speaker.
Minx Bade: “The Cartel now calls on Colonel X-2580, please step forward”
A man in full black body armor stepped up to speak.
X-2580: “I am Colonel X-2580. I come before the Hutt Cartel to speak on behalf of my men. I have several things i would like to raise and inform you and i know your time is short and precious so i will keep it to the point. One. The Spectres over the last two weeks have proceeded to raid enemies of the Hutts and the locals who are notorious thieves and scoundrels who have ripped off shipments and many treasures from each of the cartel families and residents of Tatooine. We have safely stored these items in a secure location and will need to arrange a proper method to return the items to their correct families” then continued: “Two. I have been making an official request now for several weeks asking that official documentation can be providing that shows we are currently working on behalf of the Cartel. We have been getting some attitude issues from liaisons and employees of the Hutts and this does not assist nor profit the Cartel just causes a delay in co-operation. Also on another note some communication in regards to whom the Hutts allow permission to carry out security along side us would be appreciated so we do not have any misunderstandings”
Anda Anjliac spoke first: “Colonel, your concerns are noted, you should be aware that the cartel, and myself, have been quite busy with several major issues within hutt space and the mid rim, the neglect of your unit was not intended, we would like to know which employees of the cartels have spoken to you in a manner not befitting your position. Furthermore, your supply shipments will be addressed as soon as our facilities on Tatooine are completed and should speed up your supply.”
Rolga Bareesh: Colonel, to your ammunition stores, I have supplied you in the past and will continue to per our agreement, though your needs may out do our resources at times we will do what we can.”
X-2580: “Indeed you continue to uphold your end of the contract and we appreciate this honor is hard found in these times” he then turned and looked towards Lady Anda “Lady Anda it is not so much that we have not recieved attention it is the fact we need to be able to do our jobs and need to be able to do our jobs without other Hutt Cartel employees being suspicious or questioning our every move as you can respect this takes time away from the goals at hand and time is a precious commodity that should not be wasted” He said in response. Then he turned to address the whole cartel.
X-2580: “I would like to take a moment to address the cartel and all those present. There have been a great many rumors and false truths which has caused some damage to our reputation. It is my hopes that we can lay these to rest so that me and my men can continue to perform to the best of our abilities without these lies around. I would like to state for the record that we are Spectres not troopers. We are not innocent and are far from perfect but we stand by our actions good and the bad. We are honorable, Loyal, Duty bound and most of all honest. We do not try to be something we are not we simply are no more no less. We believe in our cause and everything that makes us a spectre. We do not expect you to take our word for this, we would rather allow our work over these many weeks speak for them self.
Anda Anjiliac spoke up while the rest of the Cartel sat quietly: “Which rumors are these colonel? I was not aware that anyone was spreading falsehoods about the SPECTRE, should you not wish to repeat such scurilous lies in public, you may address us with them later.”
And the Spectre agent said a few more things and left the stage. Minx Bade then made an announcement:
Minx Bade: “At this time I would like to announce on behalf of the Bareesh clan, that Bareesh and associates of Bareeesh, including the Anjiliac clan will be residing in the Palace just beyond the dunes, if you should need to address them at a later date, please make sure you come announced as accidents can happen, so if there is no further business from the guest I leave the floor to the Cartel for announcements” This announcement went over really big with the Hutts cheering and Jengaz promising to come visit one day even.
But the big announcements didn’t end there, as Rolga chimed in:
Rolga Bareesh: “Distinguished guest of the Cartel, it is with great honor to introduce a new senior member, Lady Anda.”
Anda Anjiliac: “Thank you most honored lord Rolga, as some of you may know I have been a liason to the mighty cartel until recently, whereupon they saw fit to elevate me to the position of senior member. I have accepted this position and duty and look forward to my future in the cartel. Now, I would like to take a moment to address an issue that may be on some minds around the galaxy, that of Ord Mantell and the hutts investments and facilities on planet, the Cartel in is wisdom has decided to spread our influence to other areas, as many of you know we have had a great deal of business on Ord Mantell recently and it has served as a launch in to a position of power further afield. Lady Isulla the Wise was incapable of joining us this evening due to her presence beign needed on Ord Mantell, I simply wished to let those assembled know that the cartel is still present, and in deed our holdings are now wider than ever before despite our move from Ord Mantell. The Cartel wishes to extend a public thanks to Lady Isulla for our time spent on Ord Mantell and her efforts at furthering hutt dominance and the protection of Hutt space. I wanted to publicly recognize that I have aquired a new majordomo, Emily, any business to be done with Clan Anjiliac or myself, should be addressed either to me, or to my majordomo as she is now an extension of my influence.”
Minx Bade “Lord Tompunka has an announcement to make”
Tompunka Bareesh: “I wish to announce, with much statisfaction, that the renegade, runaway jawa that served as my majordomo, and also on behalf of the Cartels here, has been brought to me in chains…. and also…. After a severe interrogation, the jawa has implicated an attempt to deceive Bareesh clan, and myself specifcially. It appears that three humanoids were involved in faking his death. An unknown jawa was produced dead, burned, and Stubz’ own assigned Bareesh flitter craft was likewise set to fire, to appear as though he was killed in a foiled attempt to capture him. Two of the deceivers have been identified… women… the blue twi’lek yonder in the middle of the chamber, the bountyhunter maria69 cybertar, and an unnamed male Mos Eisley regular, who Stubz smelled the scent of tonight, outside, when bringing him to this meeting. Be assured, I am determining just what, if anything, to do with this information…”
The blue Twi that Tompunka was gesturing about being in the room turned out to be the nights first speaker.. Cassandra Nymphea. She was called up once more before the Cartel. Minx Bade addressed her of her crimes: “You have been accused of aiding a known enemy of the Bareesh, and Cartel, what do you have to say?”
Cassandra Nymphea: “First, I will make clear that this happened before my services in the Legion, so I want to be judged upon me as a person, with the Legion not to be taken into this. Second, the Lord Tompunkas claims are true. I did attempt to fake the Jawas death, so he would not be hunted anymore. I do not deny this. This was done after seeing that the Jawa obviously would come to harm if said hunts would go on. My intention was to have things settle down, and give him a chance to return on his own. Thus, saving the mighty Lord Tompunka a lot of his well earned money.”
Rolga Bareesh: “I would ask that Bareesh be allowed to handle this matter, though it may appear Cartel related I see no reason to drag the other clans into this, with your permission we will take this Twi in to our custody and deal with her trial at our palace.”
The blue Twi was then asked to hand over her weapons and took her into custody.. at this point Hutt Night was called over so Bareesh and the other Cartel members could finish business without the press.
