Put the droid back on ship duty for awhile. I still drag the thing out now and again if it appears to be getting too complacent.
I spent most of my previous day with that Mando again. He claims he’s there scouting for targets but, really, I get the feeling he’s there to watch others make fools of themselves after a few drinks. Can’t say that I blame him for that, it’s the main reason I frequent cantinas as well. Between overcompensating Sith and loud, unsubtle assassins, it’s always entertaining.
He—the Mando. Tyses. Probably should use his name now and again. Mando is fairly general; there are many within the Empire at present. At any rate, he’d had a contract on what he called a “Dark Jetii”. Initially, I’d assumed he meant a Sith, however, in this case, he actually meant something along the lines of a Jedi gone astray. Evidently, the employer felt this particular one was better off dead as opposed to captured. I also was made aware that “Dark Jetii” and “Dar’jetii” are two different things to them. One means a non-Sith ‘dark’ Jedi, the other is just…Sith.
I didn’t ask for details; the fewer details I know about contracts like that, the better.
Tyses gave me the scorched, somewhat battered lightsaber from the Jedi.
I don’t entirely know why; said something about me having more use for it than he would, considering he’s more prone to using blasters and all. By ‘gave’, of course, I mean he held it out and, when I didn’t immediately take it, he shoved it into my chest hard enough to knock me back a couple of steps.
Refusal, evidently, was not an option.
Ah well, I’ll take a look at the thing and see if it has any salvagable parts. If I’m lucky, the crystal is still good and in saleable (or useable) condition.
Unrelated to any of the above, I’ve stumbled upon a small holonet channel that appears to be used by both the Republic and the Empire. I’ve found an exceptionally annoying Jedi there. Possibly more than one. I’m torn between wanting to find them and stare in abject disbelief as they speak and wanting to find them for the purpose of seeing if they would even bother to fight back. I suspect, despite all of their high ideals and rambling speeches, that they’d have their own lightsabers out out the instant they saw mine. It would be just my luck to end up with an opponent who talks throughout the fight.
I wonder if Tyses had the name of the former owner of this lightsaber.
I’d like to find out if it has any relations or close friends left; it’s been awhile since I’ve played any proper games and I am a bit bored.
