Hala, Ronan Military Academy 15 years ago

Instructor Mar-Ren over sees the flight test of Hal-Lass as his brother Dal walks up,"How's he doing?" Mar looks over, "Amazing, he's easily one of the best pilots I've ever seen." Dal nodded but looked concerned as Mar asked, "Is your father still insisting on making him a pursuer?" Dal glared,"He claims it's more prestigious than working his way up as a pilot." Mar chuckled, "Yes we all know how your father feels about earning things. Shame to waist all that talent."

Later that day at the home of Yon-Lass

Hal stares at the screen ordering him to report to the Pursuer barracks in the morning. His father looks on proud that he was able to use his clout to get his son the assignment. Dal looked angrily at his brother for going along with it as Yon looks to him,"Aren't you happy for your brother?" Dal glares at him, "He would better serve the empire as a pilot, he's better than any I've seen in the fleet." Yon shook his head, "Not this again, I didn't hear you complain when you joined." Dal shot up, "That's different, I was asked because of my aptitude for the job."

Hal got up and walked out not wanting to hear them fight over his future without including him. He often thought they just enjoyed arguing.

5 years later

Hal had gained a reputation for never letting up on a pursuit. He wasn't much good for the investigative part of the job but when they needed someone chased down there were none better. He had suggested many upgrades for the standard Pursuer craft changing them from what he called clunky embarrassments to top of the line ships rivaling those of the war fleet. He was in the middle of chasing down a suspected Shi'ar spy on the edge of Kree space when he received a transmission telling him of his brothers arrest. He stopped the chase and shot down his quarry into a passing asteroid as he turned to head back to Hala.

The next day he sat at the trial knowing his brother would never betray the empire and growing angry that he and the others on trial with him weren't even allowed to muster a defense. He tried to contact Dal but it was forbidden. The situation was odd, while it was true the Empire was known for swift justice this was a bit extreme. Hal was far from the only one to notice.

Hal didn't sleep well that night and was hardly in a mood to deal with anyone when he was awakened in the morning. He reported to a meeting room where a pink Kree named Lor-Var was explaining about an escape the night before. As the meeting ended he called Hal over telling him," You will be tracking down Dal-Rogg, and remember to bring him back alive and in one piece will that be a problem?" Hal looked curious,"No, Sir." Lor went on, "I don't care how long it takes stay on him."

5 years later

Hal sends a transmission,"Dal-Rogg has entered a forbidden system permission to proceed." He heard nothing but static as he said to himself,"I'll just take that as a yes." He continued on thinking back on how many close calls they'd had, he was always one step behind. He had him in his sights now and was sure today would be the day he caught him. Suddenly a huge energy backlash hit the ship sending him crashing down to Earth. As he pulled himself out he was met by 2 creatures, a human and a larger cat like humanoid.

Nice work. I do like that their father has been playing favourites, obviously there's some reason for this. Good job. (Just cleaned up your spelling)

@batkevin74: The main reason is that Dal is damn near religiously devoted to empire where as his father is only interested in upgrading his social status
