Lt. JG. Cynan Mandrake.
Location: Starbase Brigadoon; Holo-suite.
Time: After "Soul Searching" (Lela).

Subject: The Lost Soul.

The operation had been a success. His arm looked just like that of his old, no 
one could have told the different without a medical tri-quarter.

There was one other subtle different though that bothered him slightly. His 
life long scare, his mark, the tattoo branded into his skin at birth was no 
more. In the beginning of his life he had hated it, and then grown accustomed 
to it, but now it was gone. This was one of the many small things flying around 
in his head that he had to sort out, and one of the reasons why he was making a 
quick visit to a holo-suite before leaving for home - the other, was to get 
some practice and re-train his new arm.

Arriving at a pre-booked holo-suite, he found that his program was already 
running. He entered with caution.

He breathed in and out at the beautiful sight that stood before him. A rock 
face over 300 feet stretched out and up into the holographic sky, valleys 
covered in greenland with several cascading waterfalls and birds fluttering 
about all filled the surrounding scenes.

However much he tried though, he could not get more then a few feet up. The new 
arm was simply not responsive enough to his will. He could move it, barely, but 
that was pretty much it. It was going to take longer then he had thought.

He took one final look around, and headed out. It was pointless to even try any 
further. He left and jumped on the nearest ship, and left for home.

300 feet up and She'Ra was sitting on a stone table, dressed like a goddess and 
kicking her legs in the air waiting for Cynan to appear after his long and hard 
climb. She had prepared him his favourite food too, but she knew it had all 
been in vain as she heard the holo-suites doors open and close a second time.

She sighed, and began to cry.
