The half-Echani was working the floor of the casino, pilfering trinkets and baubles from the gamblers dressed in their finery. What Celevon was actually after was a keycard to give him and his partner access to a restricted, but that didn’t stop him from helping himself to a pouch of credits here and there. He skimmed the surface thoughts of various workers as he came near them to see if they held one; there were too many people in the vicinity to spread the telepathy further.
Every so often, the Onderonian glanced back to see where his partner never ceased twitching. Kharoc Garrlan was not comfortable in crowds, much less so in what the Loyalist had complained and referred to as a ‘monkey suit with a necktie designed for self-asphyxiation’.
Celevon had gotten his hands on the keycard they required, stepped outside with the Arconan to give him a breather whilst going over the plan. Kharoc was in the midst of explaining how he would set demolitions to a power supply if it were needed when an explosion inside sent the pair of them to the ground.
Some of the Detonite Tape had slipped from Kharoc’s pocket as they fell. Unfortunately, the two were spotted by the Canto Bight Security Forces.
Rather than halting as they were ordered, certain that they would be held accountable, they fled into the nearby forest. Under pursuit and dodging blaster fire, they took to the trees in an attempt to confuse the Security patrol.
Unaware that members of each of their Clans had been captured during the explosion, the Jedi and the Loyalist ventured deep into the forest.
