A bright streak of light darted across the red Vegetan sky, one that fell toward the very surface of the planet.
It was a rickety, broken-down pod of an age long passed. Rust had worn down the pod to the point where it was dismantling itself mid-flight. The reinforced steel burned red as it barreled toward the surface, heading straight toward a land filled only with ruin: The ancient ruins of the Tuffles.
The pod crashed into a pile of debris and concrete, launching a cloud of dust and stone into the sky as it did so. It left a sizeable crater where it had landed. Chunks of steel fell from the hull, revealing a silhouette through the thick cloud of smoke. The pod sizzled and crackled before the door flew from it's hinges, clattering onto the dirt.
A shaky leg stepped out from the cloud of smoke, stomping down onto the dirt. A mechanical leg followed suit, one that had obviously seen better days. The silhouette slowly began to emerge completely, gripping the steel rim of the pod before pulling itself outward.
The Saiyan-like Droid immediately landed on the dirt as he emerged from the smoke. His limbs were trembling in a mix of pain, shock, and fear. Heavy, ragged breaths echoed through his mask.
Duran, one of the last survivors of Tuffle civilization.
He was home, finally. For all the wrong reasons.
His hand clenched into a fist, scooping up dirt and ash before he pounded the ground frustratedly. Duran's eyes shut tightly as he began to hiss through clenched teeth.
He was lucky enough to escape Namek with his life still intact. Duran saw the once-vibrant planet grow red and dark, before dying right infront of his very eyes. He could only watch helplessly from his pod as his new home was taken from him.
A tear escaped his shut eye, then another, and another.
But it wasn't only Namek that Duran lost.
More tears crashed onto the dirt below him.
He had lost so much more.
Teeth clenched harder and harder, almost shattering.
Something much more important.
His head landed on the dirt, defeated.
He lost Korla.
