*Sobrius was informed of Savage's imminent arrival, even as the Sith Lord watched the shuttle approach from within his office. He replied with an acknowledgement and instructions to "welcome our honored guest." With a nod to Subortus, the two of them departed the office, striding towards the entrance hall of the Temple.
Order reigned, demonstrated by the many gathered acolytes and Temple guard alike. His own personal shadowtroopers formed two rows, facing inwards, evenly spaced, standing rigidly with their weapons at ease. Behind them, trainees, acolytes, and various personnel also stood at attention, understanding the importance of his visit. Sobrius descended the stone steps until he stood at the very bottom. Subortus joined him, standing just behind him and to his left. Normally, he would have remained at the top of the staircase; today, however, he felt it best to not appear to hold himself in higher regard than his guest.
The moment the Zabrak Sith Lord appeared, Sobrius called out,* "Bogan be with you, Sith'ari of the Blackguard Reborn." *The moment he spoke his last word, the entire gathered masses—save for Sobrius himself as well as the foremost lines of shadowtroopers—fell to one knee in reverence.*

Striding forward to meet Sobrius and his assembled troops, he was actually impressed by the level of order Sobrius was maintaining here. Clearly his inside sources were feeding him bad Intel. A problem he would have to rectify soon enough. Coming to a halt a few meters away from the aged Sith Lord, his escort of red and black armored guards came to a halt as well. Acknowledging the greeting with an inclination of his head, the Zabrak replied in kind.
"And with you as well, Lord Sobrius."
It was at that moment that he looked around and took everything in. Yellow eyes scanning the masses, noting the respect they held for him. The compliance to Sobrius and their dedication the the Blackguard.
"The loyalty of your soldiers speaks volumes about you, Sobrius. Clearly the Force serves you well."
This was a very different welcome and gathering than he had originally expected, though he portrayed none of his surprise outwardly. If Sobrius' domain was this loyal to the Sith Lord, then Viox had no other reason to be here. But, now that he was here, an inspection of the troops and a few questions to gauge Clak'dor VII's state of readiness was certainly in order.
