The Emperor and the Shadow Broker by Ghostwalker2061 The Emperor and the Shadow Broker by Ghostwalker2061
Ah, here we go.  The scene I promised as promotional art for The Light in the Darkness, written by :icong-chaser: and co-written by myself.


There's the link to the story.  It details how Alan meets Emperor Kedzuel and they come up with a plan to take the Precursor Emperor on a tour of the galaxy so that Kedzuel can get visual coordinates of each planet....which is vital for Precursor Space Fold travel...and so that Kedzuel can get an idea of what races have evolved to become the dominant races of the galaxy in the Kethosians' absence.  However, the trip is cut short when Liara calls Alan to Ilium to help her find her friend Feron.  And unfortunately, this ends up with Kedzuel's kidnapping by the Shadow Broker.

This scene is from the chapter "Sticky Business"

And this line...

   "Fascinating about your particular race, Precursor," began a gruff, sinister voice from the blurry, blob blackness in front of him. The voice sounded like it was being piped in through a speaker. Kedzuel could see other grey blobs around him, humanoid in shape at least, but he could not quite make them out. The voice continued. "Electric Dragons, living dynamos, powers: electromagnetism and particle manipulation. You can become anything, organic, inorganic, it doesn't matter. You can manipulate electromagnetic waves, frequencies as long as radio and as short as gamma rays. Blast EMP fields to disrupt electronics, control magnetism in metals. Harness lightning. And that is without the Array abilities. Perfect assassins, perfect spies. No one would suspect a thing save a simple radio wave you emit. No wonder those of your race are the warriors."

    Kedzuel growled, lifting his head to the alien voice. His white streaked bangs fell into his eyes.

"But with the Array," the voice continued, "your kind are practically gods. And I was able to take you down."

The condition that Kedzuel is currently in...he's Blue, which is a debilitating and deadly state where the natural electromagnetic energy the Blitzardi must survive off of has its poles switched.

I hope you get EXACTLY what you want from him, Shadowman.

I mean it in the "I hope that tapping into Kethosi power overwhelms the Shadow Broker and it spells his undoing like the bad guy in an Indiana Jones movie" way.
