    Yub nub… Yub nub… Yub nub…

    The familiar chants mingled with blood-curdling screams, the thunderous bark of blasters and the shrill screech of land based transportations. Luke Skywalker had finally found them.

    He trudged up to a doorway that was bathed in shadows, his boots whispering against the sticky carpet. Luke breathed in the sweet, stale smell of popped maize kernels. A man clad in red robes and rounded hat stepped into his path, his pleasant smile making Luke bristle with suspicion.

    “May I see your ticket?” the civilian requested of him, his voice low.

    Luke raised his gloved hand, feeling the Force flow between his metal fingers like smooth grains of sand. His own voice was calm and quiet: “You have already seen my ticket.”

    “I have already seen your ticket.”

    “You will let me pass into the chamber beyond.”

    “I will let you pass into the chamber beyond.” The civilian stepped stiffly out of his path.

    Barely sparing him a look, Luke slipped through the door and rounded an elevated seating area, squinting against the sharp glow cast by a projection screen. Images of land based transportations were being played upon its sprawling length. They sometimes alternated between fleeing civilians and black garbed men, the latter firing their blasters out of their wheeled transports.

    Yub nub… Yub nub… Yub nub…

    The voices drifted from the front of the seating area, belonging to a small cluster of ewoks. They were huddled together in the middle of the front most seats, slurping liquid up hollow, striped tubes and rummaging in paper cartons full of popped maize kernels.

    Luke placed himself in front of the projection screen, facing the seating and lowering the hood of his cloak. Light cast by the images flickered and danced across his lined skin. He raised his voice above the chants and screams, the screeches and blaster booms: “Hey! What are you doing here!?”

    Jackie hadn't been watching the movie for a while, at first when the frigging care bear crew wandered in somehow having gotten popcorn, drinks, and tickets when they seemed to just be making the same damn noise. But something got...sorta fascinating just watching them. They seemed to understand the film or were at least entertained by it but seemed more absorbed by the food and such. He crossed his leg over the other and just sat back to watch them. He wondered who'd brought them, were they just kids watching a movie? A movie way past their age range if so. They were like Darklings, the couple times the Darklings snuck into the theater with him, yeah he ran outta there before the ushers could see the mess they had made. And he wanted to know who the hell was gonna wrangle these fuckers up once the movie was done. Because clearly the ushers weren't coming in to find them. And Jackie was wondering that if he tried to usher them out...would they try to eat him. They were bears after all.

    Then the old guy walked in and started yelling at them. Jackie just kinda sunk back into his seat and watched the bears just in case he had to call in the darklings to go on a bear hunt....for teddy bear things.

    The ewoks garbled out cries of dismay, hurling their drinks and cartons of maize kernels at him. Luke threw out a hand, creating a ripple in the Force that drove back the flying refreshments. Though none of them struck him, he felt something cool splatter his cheek and soak one of the sleeves of his cloak, some of the hard little kernels finding their way in his hair and beard.

    Gibbering and hooting like a troop of monkey-lizards, they made to flee from him by scrambling over the back of their seats, landing on the empty ones behind or people’s laps. They clambered across those seats in turn, eliciting startled yips and yelps from spectators every so often. The auditorium was more empty than full, so fortunately, they did not disturb many civilians

    Luke sighed heavily, taking a moment to survey the fleeing ewoks. He could target a leader or elder and capture them. That usually got the rest of the tribe to obey him. He spotted an ewok clad in a dusty brown ikopi skin, its antlers curving out from their forehead. They clutched a thick staff in their furry hand, which had been carved out of a branch.

    He started to stride purposefully towards the ikopi wearing ewok, who was seconds away from stumbling into a man with long black hair and a chiselled upper body. There wasn’t something right about him… Luke could feel the Force pressing against the man, putting him in mind of the fast flowing water of a stream, surging around the sides of a great boulder that was in its way.

    Luke furrowed his brow, troubled by this impression. The man was neither Jedi or Sith. Nor even some other manner of Force user without a custom or creed. He was something else entirely.

    The Darkness felt the man’s presence, wriggling in his hosts mind and sent out a flare of its own. Sort of like a dog snapping at someone’s hand when they get too close. Jackie stood up and looked down at the little bear that just ran into him. He looked at the guy and wondered why he was going after them, was he their owner? Were they like weirdly sophisticated pets? Jackie tried to stop the little bear who just crawled between his legs and started to run away. Jackie whirled around, his eyes glowing yellow and he moved after the thing, while the little guy was going at it Jackie still had longer legs and was keeping pace, despite the few other people who were now more upset about the bears than the two guys walking around. He growled and followed them. "Get back here you little teddy ruxban son of bitch." He hissed after the thing and lunged to grab it. He hit the ground and narrowly missed the bear, he wondered how the hell he couldn't take care of a teddy bear.

    He looked back at the old guy. "Are these your pets or something? Because...you really shouldn't be bringin' em to the movies." He still had the yellow glow in his eyes, as long as he wasn't hit by the projector lights or looked right into it he could keep the darkvision at least.

    There was a spike in the Force that had Luke jerking to a stop, his frown deepening as he appraised the black haired man. Whatever his species or creed, only one thing really mattered in this situation… Was he a danger to anybody in this auditorium, including the ewoks?

    Luke found it difficult to consider the stranger a threat when he was worse than him at catching these little pests, the ewok elder crawling between his legs. The man went on to pounce and hit the ground, missing the ewok. Luke’s younger self might’ve smiled at the display, but he was old and embittered and could only scowl at the stubbornness of the creatures under his watch.

    “They aren’t my pets!” he snorted scornfully at the question, noting the glowing yellow eyes with a frown of distrust. He had to keep raising his voice above the screech of the images playing across the screen. “They were taken from a planet known as Saint Sacul! The race that captured these creatures intended to sell them at a slave auction, but they escaped due to my intervention!”

    There was a lull in the shrieking music and sound effects, which allowed him to drop his voice and mutter sullenly: “I wasn’t expecting the whole tribe to disobey me and run off afterwards.”

    Luke pointed a gloved finger at the ewok in the dusty brown ikopi skin, who was in the middle of trying to scale the wall at the back of the auditorium. “Catch the elder and the rest will listen!”

    Well...that explanation was better than he thought and in reality it was one he would never think of. But if he was gonna get these things on a reserve or whatever that was better than in his movie. He nodded and tried to think, he couldn't go for another grab, he'd embarrassed himself enough already. he cracked his neck and fingers and summoned up some help, three pairs of yellow eyes peered up at him and the old man from beneath the theater seat. Buddy was the Darkling under the middle seat, wearing a union Jack shirt and a cat skin as a hat. Dostoyevsky was under the right chair, wearing a long black torn coat that worked as more of a cloak on his implike body and a ragged tophat covering a head of stringy hair. And then there was Shellshock, a darkling smoking a cigar, wearing two bandoleers of 50. cal rounds and a Vietnam era helmet. "Oi Monkey....who's the geezer?" Buddy piped up first in his obnoxious cockney accent. Jackie looked to the old guy. "Someone who could use a hand, don't have his name, but me and old man Jesus here need you to round up those little bear things, don't hurt em none just round em up, corral them without making too much of a scene."

    The Darklings looked at eachother and then to the bear things then nodded. "You got it monkey." They disappeared back under the chairs and all spread out to corral the little bears.

    "Should go fine."

    Luke blinked and widened his eyes at a commotion in the Force, which was best described as a large stone, three of them, plunging into a quiet river. The man before him had summoned life forms.

    Old man who?

    “It’s Luke actually. Luke Skywalker,” he corrected him, tone verging on tetchy. He puffed out his cheeks, eyeing the black haired man with suspicion. “Who are you? What are you?”

    A high, garbled wail from the ewoks had him turning his gray head. They were trying to fight off the small leathery creatures in the peculiar garments. The ewok elder struck out with its stick, intending to hit the one with the furry creature dangling down the sides of its head.

    Another ewok, this one in a yellow hood, pulled out a crude wooden slingshot, firing pebbles at the creature in the ragged black cloak. Arrows whizzed towards the third, some of them lodging into nearby seats. Luke’s heart gave a sharp jolt at the sight of one flying towards a gaping civilian.

    He raised his hand and mimed a snatching motion, using the Force to turn the arrow around a mere inch or two before it could pierce the bystander’s chest. Luke guided the arrow back to its archer, then had it hover in place in front of his furry face, the sharp metal tip gleaming in the light. The ewok let out a startled yelp, throwing down his gnarled wooden bow and raising his stubby arms.

    Dostoyevsky let out an annoyed growl and brought up his hands to block the stones. Buddy took the stick to the side of his face and fell to the side with a groan. Jackie sighed and started to make his way over to them. "Luke Skywa-Like that on- Ya know what I shouldn't be shocked. Basically I'm an Italian man with a parasitic embodiment of all our sins as a stowaway in here." He approached the ones throwing rocks at Dosto and held up his hands. "Alright, alright let's all just calm down an-" His words were cut off by a searing pain in his shoulder and he turned to see a friggin miniature spear sticking out of it. He bit his lip to suppress the groan of pain and glared at the one he knew threw it. His eyes glowing once more a bit of his Darkness armor crept up his arm. "N-now we're gonna pretend that didn't happen." He riped the spear out and snapped it in his fist. "And you're gonna listen to Luke or I'm gonna make you into friggin hats!" He hissed at them and approached, but he stopped when he heard a familiar mechanical whir that wasn't coming from the movie.

    Shellshock.

    He turned to see the Darkling positioned on top of a few seats, it's miniaturized Gatling Gun revving up. Jackie leaped in front of him and shouted. "NO! No using that!" He had to turn his back to the bears while he shouted down his Darkling.

    He frowned heavily, struggling to make sense of the man’s explanation. Italian? Luke assumed that was the name of a planet. But sins? Parasitic embodiments of them? What did he mean?

    “Do I need to call you the Italian? Or do you have a name of some sort?” Luke asked him.

    He winced when one of the ewoks managed to wound the Italian, but eyed the armor with curiosity when it began to slink up his arm. It soured into alarm when he glimpsed one of the leathery creatures perched atop a row of seats, primed to turn some complicated manner of blaster on the ewoks.

    Letting out gasps and shrieks, the civilians fled from the auditorium. Luke heaved out a silent sigh, relieved that there was no longer a chance of catching one of them by accident.

    The ewok elder took advantage of the Italian’s turned back, aiming to drive his staff into his calves and knock him to the ground. Even the threat of a blaster couldn’t deter these guys!

    Letting the arrow clatter at the archer’s feet, Luke reached his gloved hand out to the Force and ripped one of the seats out of its moorings as easily as a sickly weed growing from shallow soil. He drove it into the ewok elder and pinned him up against the closest wall.

    “Now,” Luke began, voice tight with irritation. “You’re all coming back to Saint Sacul.”

    A chorus of wails and incoherent protests rose up from the little band of ewoks.

    Jackie turned to see the little bastard being pressed against a wall, sure he wouldn't have done some permanent damage but it would have hurt like a bitch. Jackie stepped back and breathed out deeply, that could have gone much worse. He snapped his fingers and the Darklings vanished, they were barely helpful but the situation had to be handled. Jackie walked beside Luke and let his armor creep up his body to cover him, and his two Darkness tendrils sprouted from his back, their glowing yellow eyes locking on the Ewoks and their teeth bared. "Shut up!" He shouted at them, maybe Skywalker was gonna hold back but Jackie could be the bad cop in this situation. Jackie had the tendrils look between all of them, including the chief and then pull back to stay at his side. "Yer all gonna follow this guy out and head back to his island with him." He looked to Skywalker, wondering what the hell he was doing living on some island.

    He held out his hand to the older man. "Jackie Estacado, Host of The Darkness"

    Face thoughtful, Luke observed the Italian exhibit more of his odd skills, vanishing his creatures and then sprouting monsters from his back. Shuddering inwardly, Luke found that they weren’t dissimilar to the many tentacled dianoga that had almost got him on the original Death Star all those years ago. It made him even more reluctant to get on the wrong side of the Italian.

    The ewoks were especially alarmed by the long serpentine beasts, clutching at one another and uttering tremulous little wails. It gave Luke a stab of grumpy satisfaction after they’d resisted him. Perhaps if he had known they would’ve thanked him this way, he would have allowed the Yensid to auction them off as slaves of the wealthy. But deep in his crusty old heart, Luke knew that was wrong. He would’ve still done the right thing and rescued them.

    Jackie Estacado. He held out his hand. Luke hesitated and stared grimly at the offered limb, wary of people who associated themselves with the dark. On the other hand, would a dark side user spare the lives of these ewoks after they’d repeatedly made a fool of him?

    “Thanks. I appreciate the help,” Luke responded carefully, reaching out to him with his gloved hand. “Would you mind helping me get them to my ship? I’ll pay you well.”

    He made a swiping gesture with his hand, the chair clattering to the floor and freeing the ewok elder from the wall. Luke barged between the tribe and began to arrange them into a line as though they were a group of furry school children on some manner of outdoor excursion.

    "Ah I don't need yer money, I'll help you out though." Jackie dropped his powers, the organic Darkness evaporating into a cloud of black smoke around him and then dissipating in the air. He followed the line of bears out. This was a weird frickin day and he'd definitely had weirder, but this was still gonna be up there with em. Jackie fixed the cuffs on his suit and the wound on his leg was already knit back together by regrown flesh. He stepped out into the light with Skywalker and blinked back into focus. "Well that was...a movie." He looked over the ewoks and grimaced. "So you keep em all on an island where they can't get into trouble, and catch em if they leave it...but they ain't ya pets?" He was genuinely curious as to what Skywalker would call them if they walked and talked sure that was one thing, they were smart enough to make weapons but...they were still walking teddy bears. Hold the fuck up, does that mean Care Bears were walking around Pandora somewhere?

    As Jackie pondered that atomic bomb of knowledge he looked back to Skywalker. "No judgement, I get wanting to keep em out of harm just...curious."

    Luke strode out of the image complex with Jackie Estacado and the grumbling group of ewoks, a frown deepening the wrinkles in his forehead. The Italian continued to puzzle him with his helpfulness and generosity, which contradicted the dark energies that passed through him.

    Jackie Estacado’s question caused him to slow to a stop, his uncertainty escalating like a whirlpool. Was Luke doing the right thing, forcing the reluctant ewoks to live on the island? They had minds of their own, no matter how small or dim…

    “Everybody’s safer this way,” he replied, not sure whether he was trying to convince himself or the man from the Italian star system. “I make sure there is peace and balance on the island. The ewoks and other native species all contribute to that balance in their own small ways. They aren’t my pets… No. I guess I’m more of a caretaker of sorts.”

    Luke hoped he didn’t sound too much like a hippy or monk old-fashioned and staid.

    Puffing out his cheeks, he led the little party down an alleyway, believing it was less precarious if they kept to the backstreets, even though they stunk worse than a rancor’s sweat bath. Now that the ewoks were obeying them, Luke was able to give Jackie Estacado his full attention.

    He tilted his head to narrow his eyes at him. Who was this man? Really? Who was he!?

    “You aren’t of the Light,” Luke stated quietly. “Why did you offer your help so freely?”

    Jackie shrugged, he supposed the man had a good point it was better off if spear chucking bears weren't wandering around. Cute fuckers but he didn't want anyone dying because of them. Jackie tried to keep the middle of the alleyway so nothing got stuck to his shoes, he had spent plenty of time in backstreets and made quite a mess in plenty but he still didn't like trash clinging to his loafers. He smiled at Luke and shook his head, all the suspicion wasn't anything new. "I'm just Jackie Estacado, I own a bar, sometimes i use my powers whenever I can't handle something the old fashioned way." It was hard to describe and explain being the Darkness' host, he barely understood what it did or what it wanted other than carnage and death and eating the occasional heart. "This thing in me, The Darkness, it used to be able to control me, now I control it, doesn't like that much but not much it can do unless I got a kid....which ain't possible here."

    The Darkness made a racket in his skull again, it's little way of protesting whenever it didn't like what Jackie was doing. "It's kinda my family secret, Great Grandad tried surviving the war by taking a deal from it, so now the men in my family have it passed on to them, and then on their 21st it starts to stretch it's legs. My wife helped me get full control over it."

    Luke acknowledged the Italian’s explanation with a deep nod, uncertain what to make of those bold statements. He was glad to hear that his wife had helped him control the darkness within himself. Love was an incredible power.

    But so easy to corrupt, to poison, to twist against a person, he thought, Palpatine and his father at the forefront of his mind.

    Luke wanted to ask Jackie Estacado more questions, but they were disturbed by an arrow whistling through the air and piercing the back of an ewok’s skull. The metal point of the arrow erupted out of its eye socket, blood and gore splattering across the asphalt. Its unfortunate victim flopped face down to the ground, Luke feeling a bitterly cold void in the Force that had been occupied not one second ago.

    He whirled to face the life forms that had entered the alley behind them, recognizing them as Yensid. They were bipeds with the long, scale covered faces of snakes and lizards, black eyes reflecting the light, forked tongues flicking out between ridged lips. The ones at the front were armed with wooden bows.

    A snake face with brown scales and a flared hood stepped forward to turn its bow on another of the ewoks, lathering the end of an arrow in its own viscous venom.

    “Give usss the merchandissse and sssurrender your own livesss to ssslavery,” the snake face urged them, baring its fangs. “Or we will kill everybody.”

    Jackie was gonna explain more when one of the teddies took an arrow to the skull. Jackie was dumbstruck, who the hell would murder something so small for no reason other than fucking selling them? And why would you kill something you meant to sell? He went for his guns, drawing them and aiming at the front lines of the snake people. Sunlight and his powers didn't go well together so unlike inside he wasn't armoring up, which meant he could end up a fucking pincushion when arrows started flying but hopefully grandpa could catch the arrows out of the air or something. The Darkness stirred. "Feed me their hearts Jackie, keep us strong in the light!" Of course that was always how this thing worked, hearts gave Darkness, at least the ones of sinners and a bunch of slavers had to be sinners. He thought for a second before he rushed forward, firing off rounds, his armor wrapped around his body and one of his tendrils last out, it;s teeth going for one of the snake people's chests.

    "So thing is! I got prolly fifteen minutes before the light saps my powers so we better make this quick"

    Luke joined in with the Italian, alternating between using the Force to turn the arrows back on their owners and slicing them out of the air with his lightsaber. They either impaled themselves into the scaly faces and chests of the Yensid, or tumbled to the concrete in blackened and smoking shards. He breathed in the acrid, chemical smells of burning wood and venom.

    The two of them took out a great swathe of Yensid, but Luke could feel others hurrying down the alley to confront them. It would take more than fifteen minutes to fight off such a vast group… And what if further reinforcements arrived in the meantime? Their numbers would exhaust and overwhelm them eventually. A mindless battle wasn’t the solution.

    “Let’s keep moving back to the ship!” Luke yelled to Jackie and the gibbering ewoks, swinging his lightsaber and searing another arrow in two. “It’s this way!”

    He let the ewoks go first. This time they didn’t resist his instructions, hurtling down the alley with yelps and wails. Two ewoks lingered behind to take care of their deceased friend, one picking them up by the limp arms, the other the limp legs. They scrambled as fast as they could after the rest of the group, the middle of the body swinging from left to right, then back again.

    They were fortunate if this skirmish only cost them one casualty.

    Jackie fired back at the crowd, expanding minuscule bits of his Darkness energy as he moved backwards, following Luke, he tried to cover the two little guys carrying their dead friend. Jackie knew he best follow the guy and have him drop him off after they escaped the lizard people. He tried to fire off some more rounds and tried to keep up with the assortment of teddy bears and the old man who was proving to be pretty badass. A tendril shot out from Jackie's back and impaled a dumpster, tossing it on one of the Yensid and making an obstacle for the rest to keep him busy. He got behind the two in the back, he got wanting to bury a friend, he wished he could have buried some of the friends he'd lost over the years. But when someone went down in the middle of a construction site full of armed workers you had to leave em.

    "This ship gonna fit all these things?"
    Jackie caught an arrow barreling for another bears head and snapped it in his grip. "Because These things really want these bears."

    Luke hesitated at the question, almost neglecting to divert an arrow hurtling towards his head. He made a casual, distracted swipe of his hand, sending it spinning away from him. He’d brought a rental transport rather than his limited X-Wing, but had underestimated the number of ewoks that he would have to escort back to Saint Sacul, plus there was the Italian.

    “Everybody will fit if we breathe in deeply enough,” Luke admitted with a thoughtful wince.

    The garbage receptacle thudded down on one of the lizard men, obstructing the path of the rest of the Yensid. Luke nodded his approval at Jackie, before they navigated a sharp bend and came upon his transport. It was a disc shaped light freighter, which he heavily suspected had once transported garlic and onions, judging by the overpowering herbaceous smell.

    Luke lowered the hatch, urging the ewoks up into the freighter first.

    Jackie continued to cover Luke as he loaded the bears into the ship, firing off rounds to keep the Yensid back and feeling his energy draining bit by bit, parts of his body began to peek through the armor, and an arrow struck the flesh of his shoulder, sinking in. But Jackie just grit his teeth and held by the scream, firing off more rounds. Soon the purple smoke dissipated around his barrels and mundane bullets passed through the barrels, actually using up his ammo pool. Jackie looked back to see how the ship loading was coming along. He backed up slowly and kept the suppressing fire up, trying to more of the arrows, the tendrils were split and ripped through by arrows and another volley hurtled towards them. "Crap." Jackie rushed to the assortment of living stuffed animals and turned around, using his body to block them.

    Arrows slammed into his back, turning it into a pin cushion. He coughed up blood and forced himself to stay standing. "C-crap, we gotta m-m-move old man!" He tried to help her them in which wasn't much, just waving his arms as best he could with the internal bleeding and perforated organs.
