Adelaide Grenada stepped into the ring, wearing her customary combat jumpsuit. Her long hair was tied back into a ponytail, and her hands were empty. Her lightspear and twin vibrokamas were slung across her back, waiting for use, and her Cressya blaster was clipped by her left hip, in a cross-draw holster. In the middle of the dueling ring, she stopped and did a few stretches as she awaited her opponent.

Otto was apprehensive about signing up for the Dueling Ring. He'd seen a lot of matches on tv, and they always appeared entertaining, but inflicting damage on another being was not his idea of fun.

Unfortunately, he needed the credits.

Suck it in Otto, you can do this. Just keep in mind the other guy is probably some blood thirsty Mando.

That thought made him feel better, so he took a deep breath and walked out into the ring with a lightsaber in one hand and a blaster in the other.

The roaring cheers of the crowd were electric. Goose bumps ran up his arms as he let the cheers wash over him. Spot lights were roaming around the dirt floor of the arena, while the rest of the crowd was left in dark blackness sparkled by the flashing of holo cameras.

So this is what a holostar feels like.

He looked across the arena just as the announcer was calling his name.

"Hetzer from the Jedi Order, versus Adelaide Grenada, also from the Jedi Order..."

Adelaiede? Great...as if things couldn't get worse. Now I have to fight someone I know. A fellow Jedi.

Otto almost backed out. He didn't know what the repercussions of backing out on a fight would be, but he didn't much care. Besides, there probably wasn't much they could do to stop a Jedi.

It was only the reminder that no one really got hurt in the dueling ring that kept him from leaving.

Don't worry, it'll be just like a sparring match...I hope.

Not seeing any other choice, Otto ignited his emerald blade and stepped forward, his blaster still hanging loosely by his side.

Adelaide marked the verdant bar of energy hovering in front of Otto's face, but she didn't feel like engaging in melee combat just yet. With one quick movement, she drew her blaster from its holster on her opposite hip and began firing beams at Otto. She knew from prior battles that the beam output carried a higher kinetic energy than simple bolts, and would therefore be harder for Otto to deflect.

Otto saw the blaster flick into Adelaide's hand and by reflex, he immediately reached for his own. Years of training drilled into him came rushing back. By the time he had his blaster in his hand, and a beginning aim, Adelaide's blaster bolts were already flying toward him.

The speeding beams of light gave him just enough time to adjust his aim and fire. He hit the first beam dead on, deflecting the shot a mere meter in front of him, the back wash splashing heat in his face. His second shot blocked the next two meters out, the third three. His fire was gaining ground, his reflexes sharpening, his speed edging faster and faster.

His paladin's training allowed him to beat back Adelaide's fire with his own. The challenge brought a thrill to Otto he hadn't felt in a long time.

Adelaide's eyes widened slightly. She had never seen Otto pull a trick like this. It was impressive, first that he could actually do it, second that he was able to deflect Cressya beams that way.

It was time for a new strategy. Still firing, she rushed across the arena toward her opponent. As she leapt into the air, she reached back and pulled the middle rod of three strapped across her back; her lightspear. She held it away from her body, three brilliant orange tines of light flickering into being, shooting out as the weapon extended to its full two-and-a-half meter length. As she began to fall, she sheathed her blaster and gripped the weapon with both hands, stabbing down at Otto.

"What the-"

Otto had to cut himself off as he watched the strange weapon spring into action. He dropped his blaster and drew his beskar katana, simultaneously deactivating his lightsaber and putting it away.

Just as he had the weapon in hand, the full might of Adelaide's light spear came down. The weight of the strike brought him down to his knee, but he kept it from touching him, just barely. Adelaide was now bringing the weapon back, spinning it for momentum, and again it lashed out at him.

Otto met the deadly forked trident with his katana. The blade hissing as it made contact with the lightsaber tines. After the third blow, Otto realized Adelaide had the advantage or both reach and force with her innovative blade.

Have to use it's bulk against her.

He knew he needed to close in. It was the only way to negate the advantage or her weapon. Alas her skill with the toy was nothing to scoff at.

Lunging forward, she caught his hip as he tried to flip away to the side from another blow. Luckily it was only a graze, but it still burned like a holy fire.

Otto stood back up in a fighting stance. His weight resting lightly on the balls of his feet. Both hands lightly gripping the hilt of his sword. Patiently he waited for Adelaide to strike again. This time parried the weapon to the side and rolled forward, elbowing her on the rebound.

The blow caught her on the shoulder, knocking her off guard just long enough for him to continue to keep in close for the attack. He quickly feinted for her exposed leg, but she blocked. He whipped around for another strike at her shoulder, and again she blocked, but he was gaining momentum as she was losing it. He then struck for toward her thigh...

Otto had gotten underneath her defense, and it was now all Adelaide could do to repulse him. The long shaft of her lightspear was a hindrance at this close range. She could shorten it, but she made the snap calculation that she wouldn't be able to in time. But she thumbed the button anyway, reducing it to a managable meter-and-a-half.

Then her thigh exploded in fire.

Adelaide staggered back, and immediately collapsed on the side of her wounded leg. Her blood appeared everywhere. Anger at being hurt blazed in her, and she drew on the pain, focusing it into a weapon. As she rolled onto the ground, she screamed and lashed out with her hands, releasing everything she was feeling directly at Otto in the form of Force energy; lightning and a telekinetic push. Hoping it would buy her some time, she fell back supine, panting, trying to dull the pain and stanch the wound.

The wave of Force energy blasted Otto off his feet and back into the air. The sizzling tendrils of Force Lightning made his whole body spasm in a cold numbness. The ground slam into his back hard, but it helped break the hold of the tingling currents of electricity.

Still clinging to his katana, he slowly got back to his feet. He saw that Adelaide was mending her wound. Normally he would have pressed the advantage of her distraction and attacked. But instead he kept his distance and waited until she was ready.

To him this was very much a typical sparring match, only amped up a little. He was interested in seeing just how this would play out, so he let Adelaide make the next move.

Adelaide maintained the pressure on her wound with both hands, willing the Force to mend it, and wondered why she wasn't dead. She was immobilized, and as she lifted her torso to take stock of the situation, she noticed that Otto was on his feet, bedraggled from her Force assault, but still in fighting condition. He appeared to be waiting for her to get up.

How chivalrous, she thought, and sank back down to continue mending. After a few moments, her leg felt stronger, and she bicycled the limb to test its mobility. It seemed fine, and so she slowly got to her feet. She was a little lightheaded from blood loss, but that was a consequence of the duel; she would have to deal with it. She took a moment to focus herself and considered her next move. It would most likely be made by her, since Otto hadn't budged, and so overwhelming force would have to replace the element of surprise. She reached back and drew the two weapons she hadn't used yet in this duel; her vibrokamas. Holding them forward, tips facing the ground, she depressed the buttons, and the sickle blades snapped out with a 'schink.' She twirled them a few times, reacquainting herself with the weight of the weapons, and then charged. In front of her, Otto tensed, holding his katana ready. She met his guard and they began fencing; Adelaide utilizing the furious and battering style she'd developed for the weapon. When they had settled into a comfortable rhythm, Adelaide made a gambit. She parried Otto's strike with one of her vibrokamas on the shaft of the weapon, batting the blade away, while winding up with her other vibrokama to deliver a riposte. That was a predictable maneuver. However, since she was using the kama blades, the strike would be oriented differently than if she were to use the shoto blade...which Adelaide activated at the last second and drove toward Otto, while readying her other weapon to help.

Adelaide's weapon slipped in past his defenses. Otto watched in horror as his katana was batted away and the deadly vibrokama lurched for his abdomen.

He only time to twist his body to keep the weapon from cutting him in two. As he wrenched around, the humming blade hissed in excitement as it made contact with his flesh, searing it instantly as it cut through. The sinister blade sliced deep across his stomach, even with his reflexive turn. Cutting in hard, nearly 4 centimeters, as it dug through his lower ribcage and only coming out a little shallower, a mere 2 centimeters, as it the gash stopped at his navel.

He screamed in pain.

He was no longer there.

At that point, his brain and body took over. His sword wove patterns and parried as Adelaide's attacks continued. Meanwhile Otto's mind wrangled in torment, shocked into solitude. Fore those few seconds, he was not even aware of what was happening. Blissfully ignorant of the world.

He was on vacation.

Adelaide's smile of triumph at scoring a hit on Otto quickly disappeared into a mask of concentration as it suddenly became harder to fend him off. Despite the bleeding gash in his belly, Otto was fencing effortlessly, with a higher skill and power than he had possessed before. It wouldn't be long before the battle shifted in his favor. Adelaide knew full well the limitations of her weapons. Vibrokamas were both heavy and short, and optimally, were to be used in short engagements. Though she stood a chance by staying within the current cycle of parry and riposte, she knew she would need to change her strategy again to gain an advantage.

Though she was holding his weapon off, she sported several cuts on her shoulders, arms, and abdomen where his attacks had broken through her guard. And her wounded leg was hampering her maneuvers, making her own ripostes sloppy. As the fencing raged back and forth, Adelaide caught a glimpse of Otto's eyes. They were glassy, almost as if he wasn't there.

Maybe he can't react as well...

Drawing on the Force, Adelaide pushed out against his body with the same telekinetic attack she had used on him before. As he flew through the air, she charged toward him to renew the offensive.

Otto felt the Force hit him, and its sudden blast brought him back to reality. The pain of his stomach wound, the mashing of his muscles against the blow from the Force, and then the pang of the ground as it slammed into his shoulder blades.

As he was trained to do, he burdened through the pain and shifted his gaze to where ever his opponent was. He looked up...and she was there...a brilliantly lit vibrokama aimed for his head.

Out of instinct, he brought his sword up, but it was too late. Adelaide's blow had too much momentum, and he didn't have the time to properly block it. Thus the vibrokama slammed down onto his blade and pressed it to his chest. The vibrokama slid forward, rolling across his katana's edge, and seared into his left collarbone.

The pain was exquisite.

Under normal circumstances, or rather, among normal beings, a blow such as that would have been the end of the fight. Most sentients would not have been able to continue, let alone block the next certainly fatal attack. However Force trained warriors were a different breed. They didn't fight like normal creatures. When pushed to the edge, they achieved things greater than they could ever hope to accomplish in simple meditation. It was at this moment that Otto finally found that inner calm. His self submerged fully with the Force. Time slowed to a crawl.

He saw Adelaide, her strength in the Force glowing like a blue fire. Peering into her eyes, he could see her thoughts, he could feel her intentions. She was going to strike at his head with her other vibrokama.

Instinctively he knew this was bad, though the Force felt no pain and did not care about the outcome of this match. But it did show him how he could escape this dreadful end.

All of Adelaide's attention was on his upper half. Her guards were fully in place and no Force attack would penetrate those defenses. However, she gave no thought to her leg placement, or to that of Otto's. He did the only thing he could.

He kicked her.

The sudden, sharp movement brought him out of his trance, and time sped back into full swing. He no longer had the supreme guidance of the Force, but his attack had saved him...for the moment.

He had brought leg up and kicked Adelaide fully between the legs. For a male, this would have been a cheap shot, but even for a female, it was still painful. It had been enough to throw of her vibrokama attack and allow Otto to get back to his feet. Regardless, things still looked grim. He now had two vicious wounds. Both of them would slow him down.

Defeat looked to be imminent.

Adelaied came in again, and Otto was certain this would be it. The battle had dragged on too long for a sure victory. This was but a bloody mess. Neither opponent was at there top form anymore. Instead it was careless dance of savagery and will.

There blades met with force and with a clash of burning ozone. The sizzling beams of light cackled in fury. A low swipe blocked by a sharp parry. A high blow deftly swayed to the side. Spins and jabs. Feints and sweeps. Otto rolled his blade inside an angled strike, and lunged forward. His blade stopped with the dragging pull of another block and he spun away out of instinct to dodge the counter.

But there was no counter.

He looked down and saw Adelaide crumpled to the floor. A grievous wound was marred across her chest. The block he had perceived was the resistance of lightsaber plunging into her torso.

Adelaide tried to say something, but the words tumbled out in distorted pieces.

Then the arena's crowd bellowed into a cacophony of cheers.

"The winner is Otto Hetzer!"
