Immediately following the events of Chapter 11. Even as the Sith prepare to resurrect Darth Vulnero, Jedi Master Boris Yakerno reaches the end of his investigation of the death of Senator Ralone, leading him to the Moon of Nar Shadda and the shadowy crime lord Victor...
About this creation
(Republic Intelligence agents Major Kalin and Director Meredith gather on a high rise on Nar Shadda)
Kalin-This is a job for Republic Intelligence, not Jedi.
Meredith-Major, I know Master Boris personally and I can assure you he is more than capable.
Meredith-These kind of situations are...delicate. A Jedi is perfect for the job.
(Boris walks along under the skyscraper)
Meredith-Boris do you read me over.
Boris-Loud and clear Ivonna, er Meredith. I have the target location in sight.
Meredith-Very good, you know what to do from here. Out.
(He approaches a bounder outside a cantina)
Bouncer-Woah, where do you think you're going? You're not getting in here spacer.
Boris-*waving his hand* You will let me in.
Bouncer-What th-...Oh I see. Sure go right on in. Mr. Victor has been expecting you.
(Boris steps into the bar. The loud chatter ceases as the patrons look at him before resuming their conversation)
Boris-I think that was a little too easy...
(Boris walks over to a large window where a heated discussion is underway)
Convict-...Alright I'll knock my price down for breaking me out but I need credits unless you want me to be back in prison!
Victor-Rest assured you will be paid, now stand aside we have a guest. Jedi Master Boris Yakerno, It's a pleasure to finally make your acquaintance! Please come here, I am Victor Terronzi.
Boris-The pleasure's all mine I'm sure, but how did you...
Victor-Know your name? I know everything that goes on this moon, and I know why you're here. You want to know why I ordered the attack on Senator Ralone.
Victor-Master Boris, here on Nar Shadda, humans like you and me are treated like slaves by the Hutts, I alone am trying to change this the Republic has never cared for us there fore I tried to gain a voice in your Senate but that alien slime still lives! That is why I have made a deal with the Separatists I help them and they help me.
Boris-That is treasonous! The Republic will gladly help if you...
Victor-Enough talk! That has gotten me nowhere! Now is the time to act! Tadok!
(Boris quickly reacts and parries the Mandalorians powerful blow)
(One of Victor's guards raises his gun)
Victor-Not yet, we still need a messenger.
Boris-You're much more skilled than most Mandalorians I've meet!
Xeno Tadok-I doubt you ever met a real Mandalorian, Jedi!
(Out on the skyscraper)
Kalin-Looks like some drunken riot.
Meredith-Hmm, knowing Boris it's more likely a fight...
(Back in the bar)
Bouncer-What in the...
Xeno-You are skilled Jedi...
(The Mandalorian forces Boris back onto a table)
Xeno-But I am the stronger!
Boris-We'll see about that!
(Reaching out to the force Boris throws a chair at Xeno)
Boris-I'd love to stay but I must be going now!
Meredith-Boris, what happened in there?
Boris-No time now but there's a revolution coming! Run!
(The thugs show up and take a last potshot)
Xeno-It's no use let them go.
Thug-Sir they got away.
Victor-Exactly. A Jedi will make a much better messenger than any Senator could!
Xeno-And they will return, and when they do I will destroy them.
Victor-Soon our revolt will force the Hutts from this moon, and my power will be recognized at last! Everything is going exactly as I have planned.
(Medical ship Resurgence, Karlo recovers examining his new hand)
Karlo-It feels so strange master...It's my hand but then it isn't...
Alinta-It will become familiar in time, it is a clone hand after all.
Karlo-At least it's better than a mechanical hand...
(Boris walks into the room)
Alinta-Master Boris! It's been so long!
Boris-Alinta! It's good to finally see you! My investigation has at last come to a close while the Senate decides what to do next. I heard all about what you've been doing. I can't believe the Sith would...
(Suddenly Master Ban-Kazi bursts into the room holding a small holopad)
Ban-Master Boris, good you're here! Come around I think you'll all want to see this.
*static*Gulio-This is Gulio Marcus reporting in from Rhen Var. Masters, we have a new problem. The Sith have managed to escape with the fangblade. I fear there is nothing keeping them from resurrecting Darth Vulnero now...
