In the town of Palisade, on the planet Kabal, a conman named Cecil Noone visits "the wealthiest Krish in the galaxy," a hunting fanatic named Tyro Viveca. He offers a gift - a Hapan Gun of Command. In fact, a prototype rifle version of the same. Noone offers one and a half million credits for it. Tyro says he will pay nothing - he knows Noone and his gang of thieves stole this Gun from a Bimm crime lord they killed. In doing so, they also betrayed their Hutt employer, who now wants them all dead. He makes him a counteroffer - he can leave with the clothes on his back. If he makes it to the edge of Tyro's hunting grounds, he is free to leave Kabal forever. If he can avoid Tyro's hunting skills, that is. If not, well…
Noone starts running. Using a multi-tool, he tries creating a skewer within a branch - only succeeding in impaling his right shoulder. Continuing on, he blunders into a cage - a force cage containing an angry Lamproid. But after a little telepathy - and the Lamproid learning that Tyro mounted her mate on the wall - the Lamproid helps Cecil escape. In return, the Lamproid attacks Tyro and his manservant. The manservant is killed, but Tyro manages to kill the Lamproid. Cecil, meanwhile, finds himself in a gravity trap - held down by waves of artificial gravity. Being slowly crushed to death, Cecil is unexpectedly rescued - his gang of thieves put two and two together, realised what was going on, and rushed in to save him. They leave an explosive for Tyro to come upon and take off. Sure enough, the hunter comes right up to it - and vaporised. The thieves rush to their ship, just barely escaping the Imperials.

This story occurs approximately 3 years after the Battle of Yavin.
