When Davin Entered The Bar
When Davin entered the bar, he paused for a moment to see if he could sense the Force users located somewhere inside. After a moment, he was able to pick up on the other Jedi’s force signature. Davin immediately headed to where he sensed the other Force user.
At a set of tables in the back, was an Ithorian Noble, a pair of Togorian soldiers acting as bodyguards, a Jawa lurking under the table, a Gran lurking in the shadows, and, next to the Ithorian, a small purple creature who’s race he did not recognize. Davin was stunned, could this 3 ft tall purple creature was the other Jedi he sensed?
Davin quickly made his way to the table and studied the group closely, noting the purple one did indeed have a Jedi’s lightsaber (although a short one) hanging by her side. After a brief greeting and some conversation with the Ithorian and the bodyguards, Davin asked small purple creature, who’s name was Lira, to step to another table so he could explain his mission. Davin discovered Lira was a Squib, one of more obscure races in the Unknown Regions. He did remember hearing a quote about squib’s from another pilot:
“Squibs. They’ll sell you a bucket of air if you let them, and keep the bucket.”
Lira was cautious at first, but when she sensed the Force within Davin, she relaxed enough to listen to the human Jedi’s words. Davin, was obviously taken somewhat aback by her being a Squib Jedi, but after his initial amazement, he treated her like the trained jedi that she was. Davin explained he needed a salvage crew and a guide to get him into the wrecked super star destroyer, the Ravager, in order to pull some data from the ship’s computer systems.
Lira brought Davin over to meet the Ithorian she was trying to guide away from his dreams of becoming a Crime Lord and onto something much more productive. Davin quickly struck a deal with the Ithorian in which he’d hired the entire group to help him get to his destination for 25,000 New republic credits and any portable salvage would be keep by the group.
With an agreement in place, and with a 10,000 credit down payment, the group would join Davin at 0800 in the morning to take a salvage hopper out to the crash site..
