OK, this is Chapter One of Uncontrolled, part one of a series I am going to make. All Last names are totally made up.
Disclaimer: If I owned Jak and Daxter, this would be in a game, not on this site.
Who were the Precursors? This used to be the Great Question of our time. The wisest sages, smartest archaeologists, most curious adventurers all searched for the answers. I, the sage of Green Eco, searched for the answers for my whole life. Many theories were presented, yet none were correct.
Until a certain pair of rather unintelligent boys decided to directly disobey me and go to the one place on the planet that I told them not to go to. Thus began a big long adventure that I am not going to tell you, because I am rather tired right now and am waiting for my daughter to bring me that nice tea she makes, but suffice to say that the identity of the mysterious Precursors was unveiled.
They were little orange furballs.
They were incredibly powerful, yes. And at least one was a genius, yes. They were liars, as shown by them making all those fake statues. That makes no sense, as they were somehow insecure about their height. I mean, I am short, and am I insecure? By the Precursors, if Daxter has been spreading that rumor again, I'll… oh thank you Kiera, this tea is really good.
Anyways, Jak, one of those two idiotic, disobedient boys (the one who was not an ottsel at the end of the day), had been sent by Ashelin, the intelligence director of Haven City, which means pretty much the head spy, to go get some sort of object that a man name Jinx, yes, I wonder what parent would name their child that, had found on a mission for the city. Well, Jinx was in Kras City, and Jak and Daxter were sent to retrieve the object from him. Simple mission, but it would turn into something so much more…
-Samos Hagai, Sage of Green Eco, Volume 7 of The Tale of Jak and Daxter
The Unboli plant is a rare plant in the vast plains that lie between Haven and Kras Cities. The Unboli plant has a delicate green stem that rises a foot out of the ground, ending in a flower with white petals and a red center. The red center has little hairs coming out of it, and there are spiral shaped leaves coming out of the base of the plant. All in all, the Unboli plant is a very beautiful plant, a favorite in gardens.
All of that can be undone by a single swipe of a propeller.
The propeller that destroyed the unboli plant belonged to and A-Grav Zoomer mark 5.6, and belonged to a man by the name of Jak. His last name depends on who you ask. Should you ask the common person on the street, they would tell you that his last name was Relford, a name that Jak had taken for himself from his adopted Uncle, who had lived and died three hundred years ago. But Jak's real last name, and in fact his real first name, were known to only a few. His true name was Mar Velanturi II, but being named after the founder with the same last name would be a dead giveaway that he was the heir to Mar, and Jak would get even more attention, which he did not want. Our Hero was riding on the zoomer, with an intent yet joyful face as he spread across the land, accidentally killing innocent unboli plants.
Jak was not alone.
With Jak was a person by the name of Daxter. Daxter was several feet shorter than Jak, much much hairier, and with a tail. Daxter was an ottsel, a form that five years ago would have given him much grief. But it was now four years after the true form of the Precursors had been revealed, and that furball loved the attention that he gained, sometimes saying random gibberish and making signs with his hands that the gullible citizens of Haven City assumed were magic, and he laughed as they gasped in awe. But this rather arrogant "god" only knew how to access one of his powers, and that involved being dunked in Dark Eco and turning into a monster, which would not impress the people of the city. Daxter was currently talking on a communication device to his girlfriend Tess, who was an ottsel as well. Their conversation is not one that I will repeat here, as it is the definition of dirty.
Daxter's conversation was cut off when Ashelin van Praxis broke into the line to tell Jak something. Daxter sighed and handed the small, walkie-talkie like device to his sidekick. The taller member of the duo put the phone to his ear and listened to Ashelin speak.
"Jak, Vin and me were..."
A voice interrupted saying, "V-v-in and-d I, that is the correct grammar."
Ashelin was heard to sigh, and then say, "Okay Vin, whatever you say. Vin and I were looking through the data files of the central communication system, trying to unlock those last few data files that my father kept hidden, and we discovered one that needed a device known as the Cyberkey to gain access to. This is what you are getting. Hurry up, as the file is so sealed tight, it must have something important in it, like the location to a bunch of eco, or…"
Vin interrupted again, "O-or to th-th-the location of the b-b-b-bombs that are g-g-g-oing to blow us all to SMITHERINES! "
Jak smiled as he turned the device off. Ashelin was no longer leader of Haven City, she had stepped down from that position a year ago. She was the intelligence director, however, and her most-absolutely-not-boy friend Torn was the head of the Freedom Guard (Torn would make sure to mention that you did not mention their relationship or you would become his next knife target) The Current leader of Haven City was a man named Volos Preveza, who Jak liked well enough. Better than Veger in any case. Jak was smiling at how Vin corrected Ashelin, something no one who was not safely inside a computer would do. Jak then called his Kiera…
"Jak! How far away from Kras City are you?"
"He's about four miles away, but we are going rather fast," interrupted Daxter. After some violence, Kiera's boyfriend himself answered.
"Not too far away. How is everything going back at home?"
"Good. I hope you don't take too long Jak."
"Gotta go make Daddy some tea. See you hopefully soon!"
"Bye," said Jak as they rounded a hill and Kras City Came in sight. He accelerated and, despite Daxter's screams, flew over a ledge right toward the city. It was a simple mission, in theory. But the dynamic duo had no idea what they were getting into…
