"All right! Trainees, fall in!" Two hundred and fifty candidates, led by their instructors, lined up in five rows of fifty. Richard looked around at the new recruits. Nnh… I've got a lot of work ahead of me. The young man shook his head, and looked straight at the mass of applicants before him. "Get to know the people in your groups. For the next month they will be your brothers and sisters. You must work together to accomplish your goals. You have been chosen as candidates for the new Titan Squadron. I will only take the best. Should you fail to be recruited, because of our intensive training, you will have an edge over the other recruits for other squadrons. The men and women standing at the end of your rows will be your instructors. They will show you where you sleep, where you eat, where you train, and how you live, for the next month. At the end of this time period, I will choose nine of you to continue your training to become Titans." With this he pushed his shades up his nose and smiled. "Have fun." Pivoting away from the mass of trainees, he raised his hand in a half salute and walked out of sight.
One trainee, a young man with green hair and eyes, looked over to his left, "Heh, my name is Garfield Logan. So… what's yours?" He asked with a crooked grin, his hand nervously rubbing his neck.
The girl looked straight at him with her deep violet eyes, contemplating whether she should answer. Something about this verdant-eyed boy was different than every one else, a presence of some sort. Standing at five foot ten with an athletic build, to any one else, he seemed like just another space jock, but to her? To her, he felt like …like a Jedi!? Deep in thought about this new enigma, she forgot all about her previous predicament of giving out her name to a stranger. Without answering his question, she left the mossy-haired boy to join the group of recruits crowding in a circle around her instructor.
Her apparent indifference left the abandoned jade boy confused. For a moment he let a frown play across his face, and his ears droop. Becoming self-conscious, he hid his disappointment underneath a smile and turned to his right. He shrugged to his best friend, Victor. "Pretty unfriendly people here, huh?"
"Maybe she just thought you were a dunce, Garfield. It wouldn't be the first time a girl's come to that conclusion. Heck, I'm your best friend and I think you're a dunce sometimes." Vic saw it again, a flash of dejection across Garfield's face.
Garfield glared at Vic, "shuddup."
"Look… Logan, I'm sorry I—"
"Dude, it's nothing. Just forget it." They joined the rest of their group, coming into the circle. Man he can be pretty clueless sometimes. Ugh, and I have to put up with that frigid, unapproachable girl. At least I don't have to worry about getting into a fight with her. He stared at the same offending purple eyes that had regarded him so frostily just a few minutes before.
She arched an eyebrow at him, daring him to approach her. What is he staring at? She was torn; wanting to find out more, yet afraid to expose her emotional vulnerability in trying. Stuck in her indecisiveness, she turned back to her instructor.
Tearing his eyes away from her, slightly disappointed, Garfield quickly scanned the room for competition and anything else that would distract him from the vibes he was getting from this mysterious lady. This woman wore a simple black pilot suit with purple tubing. Her dark purple hair is cropped short at the neck. Despite being foreboding, she looked absolutely stunning at the same time.
There were five groups of fifty recruits. One group was particularly interesting. A tall red headed Tamaranian, and a yellow-eyed Chiss were among them. The Chiss was different even for his species. His skin was darker than normal and he appeared to be furry. His yellow pupil-less eyes shifted to and fro, taking in every foreign sight. When he smiled you could see his fangs. Wait a minute. Does that dude have a tale and only three fingers? Weird. The girl with her ruby colored hair, has a slight orange tint to her skin. She also has green eyes. Unlike Garfield, however, where most would see white, there was only green. Oooh! No he doesn't! He's got fangs and pointy ears like me?! So not cool! Oh no here he comes!
"I'll take that as a yes."
"So, vhat are you staring at? Jealous of my roguish good looks?" The golden-eyed one asked.
Garfield smiled, "Not really. Sorry. What's your name?"
"My name is Kurt Vagner"
