They both stare at each other angrily, two women, one dark skin named CATO and one light skin named UMA come up walking to them.
UMA

UMA

CHO

AMMERICK
Say another word about seneca like that and ill have your tongue nailed to your toes! You talk all you want about me but not the man whos changing your life! What you need is discipline and im not haven it!

CHO
How is that even possible? God why didn’t they cut off both arms(rubs his head) and why are you even a soldier with one arm

AMMERICK

MAGNUM

Peace knight pulls out his blade, Seneca walks closer. He turns around to see Hasaytie and his friends.

PEACE KNIGHT
Looks like we have a problem her(as the knight plays with his radio)

HAS

Other peace knights laugh.
MAGNUM

He holds the blade.
HAS
Ugh….Cas looks from a corner, scared for his friend
CAS

MAGNUM
So you dare stand against the empire. Wasteman like you are slaves to there own problem and only see fitting to be smitten by the sword in order to have true freedom.

HAS

CAS

HAS
And my father and my baby sister now prepare to die!

MAGNUM
Ha! If you loved them so much you should have died in Arcen with him brown faction vermin are worthless now in this day in age. You should have remained a slave boy(pulls out massive blade) you would seen been more pleasurable to acknowledge death then meet me here now(raises it high)

HAS
Ugh…

CAS Oh god…

MAGNUM…(raise blade high) ah!(swings blade down)

CAS Oh!

DAS Oh godAs the blade comes smashing down, it rush to run into only Seneca's shield gaurd on his arm impounding him to the ground as it makes strike breaking the earth as it lays on top of him.

MAGNUM Huh?
SENECA

HAS

SENECA

Something like that will get you killed..especially by someone like me

Seneca kicks magnum in the gut to a shopping hut and hold his bald swinging it in senecas hand then striking it in to the ground.

UMA

Has getting up holding his scared eye
HAS

Later at the arurora great stone, people bow as Seneca sits at a corner in the temple resting with his legs crossed.

PEACE KNIGHT SOLDIER

SENECA

SENECA

PEACE KNIGHT 2

PEACE KNIGHT 1:

PEACE KNIGHT 3 I don’t know anybody who is that cold heart but I would want them to be by me
Angry, Seneca gets up.
SENECA
Hmm
PEACE KNIGHT 2

PEACE KNIGHT 3 Wow a what a traitor and is he really even a hero

PEACE KNIGHT 1

Seneca walks off.

CATO

PEACE KNIGHT 2
Ah that’s just you looking to curse on him some more cato(rubbing his head) CATO
You don’t know anything for instance you never know how cruel someone could be

PEACE KNIGHT 3

PEACE KNIGHT 2

PEACE KNIGHT

Sudi, a man with staff joins them
PEACE KNIGHT (CONT’D)
He was supposed to executed him I heard…(looking at Seneca walk off) (talking in his head)Seneca you are the banished prince… who knows what you are supposes to be in this world… a villain of your own kind or a trator to your own nature.. killing the last two men of your family that you love to survive and not doing it you might aswell be executed.

SUDI
If he didn’t murder his brother as the traitor then he should be arrested.
Others talk indistinctly (CONT’D)
SUDI
Saving Arkyen’s and not completing missions I don’t know maybe we shouldn’t
(another) that’s none of our business you shouldn’t ask those type of question you get somebody in trouble! Another
Well let him be hanged if he wants to get into people business

Seneca walks off in a huff.PEACE KNIGHT 1
Im telling you he could be a blooded the guy.

PEACE KNIGHT 2
Might be slight but he probably like killing people being the top soldier.

PEACE KNIGHT 3
Those savages arent fit enough to be in the army and I really want to know(hand on chin) how is it that his even a fire emblem and where just privates.

PEACE KNIGHT 2

PEACE KNIGHT 3

PEACE KNIGHT 1

He leaves pulls out knife. memory of kids him and valiss holding hands as kids with heart shaped hands)
INT. COURT ROOM -- DAYSeneca is sentenced to jail for the attack. He stands at a table before a circle of Judges, Rhodes is one of the Judges. Magnum is seen standing beside Seneca.
RHODES
You a young knight stand here today are responsible for preventing a arrest today on a young terrorist an having his life and attacking a guard… what is this a betrayal

SENECA
Your honor it was just a child he could have injured him RHODES
Ahh nonsense to this child you just a kid ewe cannot take this report seriously…beside you where on a mission to retrieve ugh.. an artifact
(holds up head) let read over his study. Magnum…Why didn’t you kill that boy what you have done could have breached everything we stand for

MAGNUM
Seneca got in my way and deflected my blade

EPICURUS
Well I can understand that since he’s a better night

MAGNUM
Ugh…

RHODES
But being silent in the form of fear is not a good enough answer what you did. It could allow them to think they are strong then a us.

SENECA
Yes yes I agree but-

RHODES
No matter what we say to our allies even though we say that were with the brown faction we are still at war with them!.

EPICURUS
He’s natural to save the child’s life it an act of kindness

RHODES
But you are a soldier you should serve no sympathy for the less kind of individuals of peasants

SENECA
Why have such a land that incites freedom when you say death to other induvial who you welcome

RHODES I disagree they aren’t welcome they thieves and murders and rapist

SENECA
But your honor it was a child

RHODES
That child could have been from an order plotting to kill us. breach his protocol he was looking to save the boy…No! no! im not having it you gave an invalid response you should have cut his tongue out for speaking as well Yet why do we have this belief if it was only the perception of an older time. The time is now of the essence to realize you where wrong to go against the creed
SENECA
As an aoidist I stand to my belief and choose not to argue against yours


RHODES
We are all aodist Seneca some of us son of the debt of gooku and yet we have to appeal to the consuls decision over all region it is religious to go against the consuls word

SENECA
Yet the thought of this court is primitive
The Crowd gasps.

RHODES
He is not sane to say that Hold your words boy is swear to the god of Aurora I shall have your heart and tongue ripped from your lones and place in front of your eyes and reality!

EPICURUS
You should learn to control your anger seneca

SENECA
(laughs)
He should
RHODES And his mouth…You will be punished and seneca with a strike and also under investigation

SENECA Investigation?

RHODES We’ve heard word …Yes of your brother who was to be executed by you
Do you still stand to the truth you gave us about his executed

SENECA
Ugh…RHODES
Yes seneca do you stand by your calm he was slane by your doing
SENECA
Yes
RHODES
I don’t believe him.
EPICURUS
Well as of now we cant take his word for it you will be on preservation hold from any action you are not allowed to guide or accept any guard duties unless permitted
SENECA
But my task that I was appointed to!

RHODES
It will also be on hold!

EPICURUS
But since you had a good record seneca and have been a loyal night Ive left you accounted to the creed active to receive money see it as a paid vacation
SENECA
…ugh sir I was studying on how to get the slaves released.
EPICURUS
Do you have a problem with that seneca or do we need to do confinement
RHODES
Maybe for a sulan
SENECA
No thank you your honors thank you for being leant(sweating)
EPICURUS
Your welcome Seneca and I still do want to see the perseverance of your report over the land you still have time to show it
RHODES
Ah you spoil these idiots
Seneca is upset.
EPICURUS
For now that is all be gone both of you and sevre to the court and the creed
JUDGES
Serve to the court and the creed(all)
SENECA
Serve the court and the creed...
Looking from afar off
