virtualvoyages: A woman with brown hair and small tattoos under her eyes faces the viewer (Captain Jezari)
I'm chasing my ship all over the damned galaxy.  And now I've got a pet farm boy.  Just what I wanted.  Okay, he's not really a farm boy, but sometimes he acts like it.  Good in a fight, though.  And knows some interesting people.

Skavak - the damned ship thief - managed to get off planet with my ship.  Turns out he's not a separatist.  He double crossed them, too.  I don't know what he's up to, but he's going to be sorry he ever met me.  And even sorrier he stole my ship.

Getting off planet was a trick, even with the spaceport open again.  There's a bounty on my head now, thanks to Skavak.  And it turns out he was playing Viidu's girlfriend, too.  Only it turns out she wasn't Viidu's girlfriend, she was Skavak's.  Before he ditched her, anyway.

And, yeah, I mean was.  She shot Viidu when he caught her talking to the separatists.  So I shot her.  Maybe it wasn't right, but I couldn't just let her walk out of there.  Not after what she did.  If she'd just tried to get me killed, okay, she didn't succeed, fine, she can walk.  But Viidu was harmless.  All he wanted to do was survive this mess.  And she shot him for no good reason.  I don't care what he walked in on, that was her mistake, and she could've talked her way out of it.  She sure tried to talk me into letting her go.

Damn Skavak.  If he hadn't stolen my ship, Viidu would still be alive.  And so would Syreena.

I need a drink.  I need several drinks.

And my ship back.

Before I landed on this forsaken hell-hole, it was all the same to me.  Republic, Empire, separatists, whatever.  If they had the money, I had a ship.  But the damned separatists stole my ship!  That's enough to make me take sides.  And not theirs.

Even if the Republic slobs playing solder here aren't much better.

I know, I know, the Republic's supposed to be the shiny beacon of whatever and all that crap.  But from what I've seen, they're no better than the Empire.  And I'm not about to start hailing the Sith or whatever they do over there.  Okay, maybe the Republic's a little better.  It's funny that a place run by Sith, or wannabes anyway, is such a humans-only club.  And you'd think they were run by Jedi, as uptight as they are about everything.

Though this place could use some Jedi, even if they are boring.  They'd put a stop to some of the crap I've seen.  At least if they're half what they're supposed to be. I don't see them signing off on torture or making refugees run mine fields for food.  Or turning a blind eye to it, like everybody here.  And I'm the criminal?

The sooner I get my ship back and get off this rock, the better.  This is no place for an independent minded business person.  Especially when the only people here I don't want to shoot - besides a few other business people - are the refugees.  And they don't have any money.
