After a gruelling chase Blur managed to cut off Merini’s access to the bridge towards the starport and in desperation Mersini attempted to drive his speeder across the bay itself but unfortunately lost momentum and crashed into the water. He was able to survive the crash however and get out of the vehicle before it sank whilst under fire from Blur. He disappeared under the water, swimming away as his speeder sank into the bay with his long sword still within it.
Back at the mansion after a fierce fire fight the last of the elite guards were killed. One guard was kept alive and captured by the team and his mind probed by Mordechai. The team discovered that all the elite guards had been conditioned thoroughly and had little sense of self left within them, left only with the ability to fight and their loyalty to Mersini. Upon probing deeper into the mind of the captured guard a trap against further probing triggered cleansing the mind of the guard entirely. However Mordechai managed to pull a single memory from the guard of a Black-Bladed Knife suspended directly in front of the man’s eyes.
