Union Jack Chronicles

Issue #1: Galactic Knights: Defenders of the Universe


Planet Florin in Space Sector 1140

A battle taken place as the city population is being invaded by marauding space pirates. The Space Pirates in particular consist of giant alien beings that resemble humanoid T-Rex with their armor partially resembling sayin armor. The citizens of Florin, resembling humanoid praying mantis have managed to flee thanks to the assist of two members of the Galactic Knight . One of them is Valeria, a veteran Galactic Knight official. She and a fellow Galactic Knight are assigned to protect the city from the invasion.

She is greeted with a armada of Giant Hover Tanks that fired missiles at Valeria. Her eyes glowed then she outstretched her hand, the missiles that were shot at her glowed then stopped. She turned them around then fired the missiles back at the hover tanks.

On land some foot soldiers are being engaged by a Galactic Knight named Ka’Xur who greeted the foot soldiers with a hover tank as he swatted each of them. Ka’Xur while a fellow Galactic Knight who has been mentored by Valeria. In time their relationship went from teacher and student to partners. Ka’Xur, with a loud yell, blasted the space pirate troops away

In the air an aerial battle between the hover tank armada and Valeria still occurs. She used her duel energy construct battle ax and hacked the Hover Tanks into pieces.

The battle went on for hours, by nightfall the remaining space pirates have surrendered. Valeria and Ka’Xur have restraints on them and their leader. The invasion has ended and the citizens have been saved.

Next Issue: The Peacekeeping Council

Issue #2: The Peacekeeping Council

Orin is one of the oldest planets of the universe and serves as a home for a race of powerful orange humanoid alien beings who are apart of the council known as the Peacekeeping Council. The Peacekeeping Council administer the Galactic Knights. A powerful group of universal police/military officers sworn to maintain peace and justice throughout the universe.

Ka’Xur and Crux, both members of the Galactic Knights, waited outside the Temple of the Peacekeepers. As tradition Non-Peacekeeper personnel aren’t permitted in while the trials are going on, they are both anxious as to find out if Katori made it as a member of the council. Valeria is with Baal Vicious in getting information from the Space Pirate leader


A new member stood before the council and gets ready for the induction

“Do you swear to uphold the responsibilities of the council?” One of the council elders asked the newest member

“I swear!” The newest member answered
“Do you swear that whatever decisions you make would be to preserve the peace?” The elder asked

“I swear” The new member said with determination

“And do you Katori swear to cast aside personal ambition and pledge yourself only to the good of the universe?” The elder member asked

“I swear!” Katori said

After many trials that tested her physical and mental capabilities as Peacekeeper Katori anxiously awaits for the council’s decision

Outside the temple the doors open, Ka’Xur and Crux looked at the person coming out, Katori embraced both Ka’Xur and Crux who both hugged her in return. They both let go, Katori looked at them and smiled” I did it I’m a member of the council”

Next Issue: A sparring session and the mastermind behind the attack is revealed


Issue #3: Class In Session


The opening focus on a interrogation scene at Klaxon, a holding station where some of the most dangerous criminals that the Galactic Knights captured are held, we see the leader of the space pirates who invaded Florin interrogated by Bhal Vicious. A veteran of the Galactic Knights. Vicious continues probe information out of Lyx as to who hired them to attack the planet. Lyx continues to fight off Vicious’s interrogation methods that matches his namesake but given a up close examination to Lyx’s face one could see his strong resolve is wavering.

We cut to Crux and Ka’Xur sparring in the Galactic Knights training grounds with Star Knight supervising them. Both of them are in their respective training uniforms for the session. The two exchanged some friendly banter before we cut to Star Knight who signaled the two to begin.

Crux and Ka’Xur begin their fight, it wasn’t anything fancy, mostly the two displaying the skills that they have learned since being recruited by the Galactic Knights. Crux’s style is more aggressive, attacking Ka’Xur with a volley of punches, Ka’Xur complements in how Crux has improved his speed , Crux responded with a smirk and did a fake to Ka’Xur’s stomach but did a spin back fist to the side of Ka’Xur’s head, while Ka’Xur blocked he definitely felt the impact of that one. He collects himself and cautiously circling until he gives a short cry and launches a furious attack. The two didn’t know how long their sparring session went as they are both into the competitive nature behind the session that the length of time they spent didn’t matter.

They both had came into the Galactic Knights for different reasons but no matter what brought them to where they are they both had a similar purpose.

The session concluded when Crux countered a punch that Ka’xur thrown and he flipped him on the mat. With a knee to the side of Ka’Xur’s head and twisting his arm and leaning backward a little Crux looks at Star Knight who signaled the session over. Crux helped Ka’Xur up and boasted on how his training with Vicious actually paid off. Ka’Xur rolled his eyes and punches him on the shoulder as they go change in the locker room.

Valeria approached Star Knight, she criticized in that they both were holding back during the session. Star Knight pointed that given that it is a training session they don’t have to get serious. Valeria counter pointed the purpose in Vicious assigning Crix and Ka’Xur to spar each other is to get used to the idea in that there will come a time that they will have no choice but to and friendship must be set aside for the importance of survival.

In Klaxon Vicious calls off the interrogation to talk to him about the definition of expendability. Vicious knows of Lyx’s compassion to his men and mentions to him that while he can withstand his interrogation he knows his crew wont and that there is a possibility that some of them wont make it. One way or another he will get the info he needs out of Lyx. Vicious considers Lyx’s men expendable as their leader holds the key to the identity of the person who hired him since Lyx was the only one who chatted with the person personally.. Lyx breaks down and reveals the name of the person who hired Lyx to attack Florin. Grun








Issue #4: Reminisce

We open to a event that happened years ago, which happens to be the most important event in Ka'Xur's life. Within the confines of a spaceship that’s big enough to carry a colony of people it shook violently as it's trying to escape the eye of the storm that is the impending destruction of planet Scion. There's a POV shot from an infant that is being held fiercely by a humanoid looking female, she is weakened from the fatal injuries that she received before being rescued but she still retained enough strength to protect her child from harm. She calls out to somebody while she's holding her child in the infirmary to send someone in. She's close to knocking on death's door but she takes a tearful look at her son then said to a shadowy figure approaching her. She looks at the figure and we get these final words from her to the mysterious figure "Please....take care of my son"

The infant turned around to look at the person that her mother was talking to but all we get is a shadowy image followed by a loud booming sound.

Ka'Xur shot up from his bed, drenched in sweat. We are in the present time and Ka'Xur has just received another recurring dream about the events surrounding his infanthood. He looked up at his window and hears the rain mixed with the thunder and lightning, in which doesn't improve his situation at all. He lays back down, sleep is far from his mind as he just waits the storm out. Once the thunder and lightning is over all that’s left is the hard rain. A flash in his mind made him think back to the sound of the planet debris striking the ship he was in during that day, he sighs then gets up. He makes his way down to the training hall to see if some unofficial training would tire him out.

http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=training+room#/d47ctg5

At the GK Zero Gravity Training Room Ka’Xur sees Crux training with several training drones, floating orb shaped drones. They are at a level that’s a little higher than normal given that their reaction time and defense when dealing with attacks directed at them is more sharper than set at a novice setting. Despite Crux’s size his acrobatic skills and cunning survival skills prove effective against the Drones. Smashing two of them together as his feet clamps on the ceiling. We are then cut to a flashback scene involving Crux and Ka’Xur’s first meeting.

GK Main Training Grounds
Many years ago

We see Crux, who is around 10, in earth years but due to his species lifespan he’s around 20, at this flashback, being escorted to the grounds by Vicious who then introduced him to Ka’Xur, he’s around the same age, earth age, as Crux. Ka’Xur and Crux around this flashback are Jun’s( A title that is granted towards a Galaxy Knight in training).

Vicious discovered Crux when he was scouting the planet Vilgax 7, a planet that’s known for harboring some really hostile aliens and shady drifters and is deemed as one of the most dangerous planets in existence. Crux was a thief when he lived on that planet and was caught trying to steal Vicious’s sword. Vicious, instead of turning him in decided to take him under his care and mold him into a upstanding member of the Galaxy Knights. The way Vicious sees it for Crux it’s better than the other alternatives, one of them is doing runs for some crime lord.

Crux was then unexpectedly introduced by Tiara, princess of the planet Chitari, who then appeared before him in a blink of an eye. Provided the usual name introduction even though Crux was still comprehending her sudden appearance when he didn’t see her on the training grounds. Ka’Xur was pretty much used to Tiara’s, whose about a year younger than the two, abrupt greeting questioned Tiara if she had finished her sparring session. Tiara kicked herself as she remembered she was still in a sparring session then bid Crux farewell before she return. She was still in mid battle during the session then returned and proceeded as usual.

Tiara

Because Ka’Xur was Jun longer than Crux he’s partnered up with him to show him the ropes. The two became inseparable since then especially when it came to defending Crux from other Jun’s when they were picking on Crux because of where he came from..

During a marching exercise the two of them noticed Katori among her fellow Ari‘s, when a member of Katori’s race has The Gift they become apart of a group called the Aris who are trained to become future members of The Peacekeeping Council, should they pass a series of trials. Members of the GK aren’t allowed to socialize with them. Least not till they’ve graduated as members of the Peacekeeping Council. But Katori, Crux and Ka’Xur usually finds a way to socialize in secret

We cut to the present day of Crux and Ka’Xur, who are now Paldians, a rank of apprentice to a Galaxy Knight that an older Galaxy Knight recruit is granted. Ka’Xur tells Crux about the dreams he keeps on having that involved the destruction. Crux wonders if he has talked to anyone about this then Ka’Xur responded that he has talked with Star Knight, whenever he isn’t busy, and those sessions with him are pretty rare. Crux is the only one outside of Knight he mentions about the dreams. While Crux isn’t much of a consoling type he tries to provide Ka’Xur comfort to the fact that at least the people he knew there would be happy that he’s still alive and doing well. That and noted the fact that they’re going to be Knighted soon. It did provide Ka’Xur some comfort and he thanked Crux before he returned to his room and went back to sleep.





Elsewhere on planet Kinyssa Space Sector 1257


http://www.wotchlanikomiksu.pl/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/flines1.jpg

No form of life on the planet was safe. You can hear the sounds of the screams echoing over the chaos and destruction. We see a figure struggles to get up from the ground, he’s then kicked on his back. The guy is ret in color and had about four arms and six eyes. He cough’s up blue blood but he points his weapon at the shadow looming over him but his arm is kicked away, followed by the weapon.

“I see you Knights are still defiant to the end”

We see the face that belonged to the voice speaking to the fallen Galaxy Knight, Grun, The Scourge of The Universe. Raises his hand then drives it trough the Knight’s chest, the Knight yells then Grun brings the bloodied hand up. He looks up at the sky” The stars sure are nice tonight”

The Knight looked up and terror overtook him at the sight that he saw, he was knocking on death’s door but the last image he managed to see before darkness overtook him was the stars in the sky descending to the planet he was assigned to protect.

Issue #5: Honor The Fallen

The Temple of The Galaxy Knights is where a fallen Knight ends up. The weather was appropriately gloomy. Storms had moved in during the night, and the morning dawned damp and overcast. Ka'Xur found it appropriate as he slowly donned the plain black formal uniform that every Jun was issued, but no one spoke of. The funereal garb was worn only if a Jun of knight was killed in duty. Such occasions demanded a formal memorial service.

Star Knight provided the opening ceremony, a tradition that usually is followed is that the high ranking Galaxy Knight is usually tasked to say some words to honor the fallen Knight that they mentored. The other Knights, including the high ranking ones, who aren't in active duty attended.

"Xirx is usually considered the noblest of the Galaxy Knights, he would always be willing to give his life to protect others. May the stars continue to guide you as you join the rest of your brethren"

Katori is there with the other Peacekeeping Council as she provides the closing ceremony, her expression is rather doleful.



The flames lit where Xirx lies. Ka'Xur is with Crux and the other Jun's, his expression equally matches Katori's while Crux's is a mixture of sadness and rage. Some of the Jun couldn't hold their emotions as some were visibly crying, albeit silently

Among the Knights Valeria was trying to keep herself together while Vicious was unreadable during the whole ceremony.

Inside the the temple we see wall to wall the names of the Galaxy Knights who fallen in battle. The Knights and the Jun saluted as Xirx's name is engraved and he now joins the others inside the temple.

I wonder how this is gonna affect the trio in the story. Didn't get to know Xirx that well but hopefully he serves as a posthumous inspiration for our heroes in whatever paths they do end up taking
