The Halley Temple- It was said to be packed with priceless artifacts hidden away skilled thieves from dozens of millennia ago. Soy had been searching after the elusive shrine for so long, and had given up hope of finding it years ago. The tricky thing about finding the spacial sanctum was that it was located on a desolate comet, of all things. The treasure hunting brenchian speculated that the temple might have been part of a much larger planet that was destroyed, leaving it alone on a rock floating through space. And now, the ambiguous, arcane comet had began to orbit slowly around the dirtied asteroid planet known as Raiti-Zarco.
The howling comet above brought plenty of new hustle and bustle to Raiti-Zarco. Rumor spread about the treasure concealed deep within it's old walls- and the fact that some passing starships noticed a stone building jutting out of it was... odd. Further investigating some dated reports from her historian mother's records matched up with past records of the obscure treasure- Soy was convinced that this was the travelling asteroid that housed unimaginable treasures. Yet, plenty before Soy had tried to head off to the comet to attain it's hidden loot, but not a single soul had returned from it's darkened, ebony walls.Until now."I-I'm telling you! That comet is accursed!" A voice echoed as Soy made her way through the plaza of one of Raiti-Zarco's small, dirty towns. The aged treasure hunter raised a brow, setting down several bags of groceries while making her way to the sounds of collected voices. Plenty of aliens, Herans, Kabochan, and even a few other Brenchians had come to investigate a battered ship that landed in the center of the town. A panicked white haired Earthling female dressed in blue and bronze garbs was housed inside the vessel, shaking as she continued her tale. "If there's any fortune in that... thing... it's impossible to attain. I tried, but me and my partner-- we..."
She trailed off, causing Soy's expression to sink to placid disappointment. Soy didn't see anyone else with her, so her "partner's" fate was safe to assume. "That temple has a life of it's own, I swear. If you go there, you'll perish too!" She proclaimed, pointing a finger to the distant rock in the skies above... Soy, though... She was only even more interested in what lay inside the inky black space rock now. "...Oh, grow up you little pansy." The yellow brenchian muttered to herself. She had heard of the horrors of war from her father, and had even been in a few battles herself over her hunting career. Earthlings had no spine, really.
"Well-- what's in there? Pah! You must have at least SEEN the loot!" A Heran snapped while Soy squeezed through the crowd. The fragile little Earthling remained silent, terrified uncertainty taking over her facial features. "Well?" The blue man snapped, slamming a hand down on the ship. "I don't care who or what's in there, that gold is all MINE!" The man yelled. He would have continued if it weren't for a mighty tug at the back of his tattered shirt. "Lighten up and bugger off, you fanny." Soy snapped, pointing a finger to the man. The heran's features twisted, though Soy was quick to raise her goggles off her eyes and pull the earthling girl in front of her to her feet. "Yo, there's a bar right down the block. I'm sure you can get your marbles together there." Soy pointed back. "It should be quiet at this hour."
The girl nodded, quickly heading off. Before anyone could give chase for any more information, the yellow brench cleared her throat, rallying the gathered crowd. "If you all want that loot, we can all head up there as a giant group or some shit." She spoke, causing several members of the crowd to smile. Soy narrowed her eyes- she knew that greedy grin all too well. "...And if you think you can take it all for yourself, you just have to get to it first. Capiche?" She pointed to the crowd again. "And you'll have to beat me there first- the only ACTUAL treasure hunter out of you knockers." Standing tall, Soy stared up at the black rock high above the group... Soy wasn't sure if she was be able to do this alone, with her own weakness as a Brenchian, though the hunter more than likely had the most experience out of everyone here. Turning back to the group, the Brenchian could only watch as several of the greedy goons began to stow off for the comet with a sigh. The human from earlier seemed awfully shaken, even for a species as fragile as them. Just what was up there...?
