Author's Note: Another of those "Wullf realizes something" drabbles, only 'cause I couldn't think of anything else. Points to anyone who picks up where and who he is talking to here, I had a couple characters in mind (and they are both cannon ones). Have fun with this, it works if nothing else does, sorta-ish.

Screams, tortured, high pitched and echoing down the hall greeted Wullf upon stepping foot in the detention block, causing his back to straighten and his mustache to twitch. Several seconds after the screaming stopped the daemon emerged, passed by Wullf with no acknowledgement, a floating black droid quickly followed. He waited and then allowed the guard to check his code cylinder, upon which he set off towards his target. A pause, only allowed because the guard had his back to him, and then he entered.

“Why?”

“Hope, peace, freedom.”

“They’re worth the lives of so many?”

“Anything is worth the lives of those that believe in it.”

“Including yours?”

“I am no different than anyone else.”

“You’re royalty.”

“You’re a former Republic Admiral, were your morals, your ideals worth your power?”

“That is hardly the point.” His mustache twitched at the prisoners last words, his hand slightly clenching at the thought.

“It is the point. What happens when those with power only want more?”

A harsh shake of his head and then he turned and left. Why fight when you no longer have faith? Power, which brings pain, suffering. How could I have been so blind to what I serve?

NOOO you killed Brian?! Wait, who was he again? Was he that nameless guy in black in the corner?

Sorry it took so long for me to reply, I left for a family thing and didn't have internet, so it's nice to come back and see this in the morning, brings a smile to my face :D

Dang it all, yeah it's Wullf and Leia, glad you liked that combo:D

Ouch. I love how Wullf, the straight-backed, principled military man being shaken out of his foundations like this. And who he's talking to--very ironic that he's speaking to the daughter of that idiotic Jedi general, and that he now thinks of that man as a demon. And Leia, even after being tortured, can still skewer the things that he tells himself.

Sorry it took me a few days, I had to go to a family thing that didn't have internet access (which drove me nuts).

So wait, I'm not the only one who thinks Anakin is an idiot? Yay! With Leia, well she was perceptive, very perceptive, so I figured that if anyone could read him it would be her, even after being tortured by Vader. So it lead to that, and because she would have heard about him being straight laced and such from Bail it made sense that she would know just how to annoy him.

The Vader perception was basically from the idea that Vader was this big, black, menacing person that would have shaken anyone to their core, even a trained ISB agent, and the fact that he tortured a young woman would have made even the staunchest Imperial supporter darken his thoughts of Vader if they heard those screams.
