Oln ignores Verico. The man had smoked the stuff before but it had been at a table, not at Oln's bar sitting beside someone who had more snout than face. The man had less situation awareness than Oln, and that was saying something. And as far as Oln was concerned any vermin was to much regardless of what one shit on his counter.
Instead he smiles at Kat and notices the pressure he's putting on the bar with his arm. Oln starts swinging his arms trying to disperse the smell quicker. Once he can no longer smell it he keeps going knowing the track would still be noticeable to Kat. He does this not only to help Kat but to give Verico time to leave. No point in telling Verico anything he might be able to use if it ever came to a fight one day. Once Verico is on his way out Oln doesn't hesitate to start telling Kat. He keeps his hands busy cleaning up after the vermin. "The first thing you need to know is even the least Miralukan is touched by the force to some extent. I won't bore you with theories of how the force can be used to 'see' or with how Miralukans evolved the trait. Regardless of the reason we all have it. If you see a human or human like species with empty eye sockets or is wearing a blind fold,
" Oln points to his own, "its best to be prepared to encounter a force user. Of course they could just be blind, but why risk it.
"And while most regard or call it force sight that's misleading. What I see is very different from what you see, more than the standard variations between different species.
" Having moved the remnants of the fish to the garbage shoot and washing his hands, Oln takes the now empty glass he'd used for the mead before Kat elected to use the bottle. He flicks the edge causing it to ring. "Some species are able to see through sound waves bouncing off objects. This is closer to my vision than your vision is. Force vision is even more powerful. Where the creatures who see with sound since they have to produce the sound themselves and they are still limited by their auditory receptor's organs orientation. The force however is present in all things especially living beings, and they all, to put it simply, give off force waves that act like light or sound waves.
" Oln starts actually cleaning the counter this time.
"Force sight also has no specific organ that is required to use, that we know of. So essentially our whole bodies pick up 'force waves' that are bounce of objects and radiate from living beings. So because of this living things are easily apparent to us. A comparison is you quickly able to pick out all light sources in the room. We can also are able to pick up intensities in the force like you can easily tell a large flame from a small. I'm able to easily tell who is touched by the force greater than the norm.
" Oln smirks, "You would be surprised by the amount of force sensitives we have on staff.
Oln holds up two fingers, "There are two things you never want to do when fighting a Miralukan. First never fight in the dark. So long as we are alive and connected to the force we can see. And second you can run but don't try to hide. Only the most oblivious Miralukans can't spot life, even through walls.
Back to wiping down the bar Oln continues, "Of course there are things you can exploit as well. There is an old proverb about teaching color to a blind man. This holds true for us even if we see with the force. We can't see color.
" Oln had actually read poetry that was supposed to convey color but it was beyond him. "We are able to read and write but it is noticeably more difficult for us. We essentially have to notice the tiny difference in thickness on a page instead of just the differentiation in color. This is made even worse with computers. We need special bio-interfaces that use algae to see any digital output.
" Oln pulls out his basic data pad. As he hold it up in front of Kat, his smile takes a sad tone. The screen shows a picture of his wife and daughter Contesa. "Away from our home world however they are incredibly expensive. This it just a lump of plastic to me.
He slips that data pad back away and the touch of sadness leave, "There is one big advantage you can have over a Miralukan in combat. We can't see energy. Because its insubstantial like air the force doesn't interact with it like it does with things with more density. This is true for fire, blaster fire, and raw electricity. We have to notice a life form and then use position of the blaster to avoid being shot. Its because of the slightly longer time this takes that Miralukans make slightly easier targets than most.
"So if you have to fight a Miralukan the best two choices are sniper rifles firing blaster shots, or if your a coward droids. We can still see droids of course but they don't pop the way living things do so we are more likely to over look them.
"Other than that we share most of the same weaknesses humans do, aside from the obvious weak point their eyes make.
" Despite the fact his lecture on Miralukan sight became a lesson on fighting Miralukans Oln seems strangely content as he talks. He lacks the usual urge to make everything he says a joke.
|This is of course only Oln's interpretation and not the final word by any means. |TL/DR
|Oln goes on an on about Miralukan sight and ways to fight Miralukans. |
