Smugglers Fen Nabon and Ghitsa Dogder are stuck on
the planet Lesvol for a month until some decent repair
parts can arrive for their wrecked hyperdrive. Ever the
conwoman, Ghitsa, who decides to take advantage of the
opportunity by passing herself off as a Jedi Knight,
making judgments for cash. The month quickly passes, and
Ghitsa lets the successful con job go to her head. Just
as she learns what caused the energy flux that caused
the hyperdrive to blow in the first place (sabotage),
Fen gets a visitor: Zeth Vost, a Jedi student from the
Academy. He is heard about Ghitsa and wants to meet her.
Only they find Ghitsa has been kidnapped.
Working together they find Ghitsa has been taken aboard
the freighter Rook, at the nearby town of NadíRis.
They start to open up about each other, but Zeth reveals
a little too much, and Fen realises to her horror that
Zeth is really Kyp Durron, the most infamous mass
murderer since Palpatine. She would love nothing better
than to kill him, but she needs his help to get her
partner out of danger. Together, they get Ghitsa out of
the grip of Counsellor Ral (of the Hutt Desilijic Clan,
who wants to know what the heck Durga the Hutt is up
to), who takes off only to have his ship destroyed by a
hole Kyp put in the hull to allow escape. Kyp flies them
to the Jedi Academy, where they arrive at the same time
as the injured Luke Skywalker and the newly re-embodied
Callista. Fen and Ghitsa take off, studying over what
little evidence they have on Durgaís scheme. It is
clearly something military in nature. With Ghitsa now
reformed from her conning ways, they decide to take
their info to Talon Karrde.
