Following the successful removal of a rival gangster by Jethro, local club owner Roger contacts his new friend again, this time for a slightly larger, more mysterious job. Jethro, in the meantime, has made some new friends. After he completed the last job, he was approached by the half-inebriated Titus, who in-turn introduced Jethro to the always lively Boone. Boone, in typical fashion, was busy drinking and sleeping around in the Ryloth capital of Lessu, when Jethro convinced him to go back to Roger’s bar, known as The Gentleman, and see about the potential to get some more work.
Once inside the bar, Boone did what he does best, until Roger invited the pair into his office, and offered them a job. The job was simple(-ish): go to a location outside the city and scout it out. Roger claimed to have little information about what actually happens at the location, but he knew a rival gang (owned and operated by an individual only known as The Boss) used it for something. He offered the pair 5000 credits each for doing some fairly straight-forward reconnaissance. Boone, the slick silver-tongued outlaw that he is, countered that neither of them got out of bed for less than 10,000. Roger, a reasonable business man, countered that with 8000 each, which Boone accepted on behalf of both of them.
The pair then set out into the desert, following the coordinates given to them by Roger. The pair walked along, with Jethro entertaining himself by popping shots at the random rodents that scampered across the dry land in front of them. As they went, they came across a downed x-wing, which Jethro was keen to get away from, while Boone was determined to search the wreckage. While searching the ship, Boone found a blaster pistol and a journal, which appears to have been the diary of the pilot. Boone scanned the contents then stowed the journal inside his jacket. Farther on, they came across a trio of encamped ruffians.
Based on a first impression, Boone daned that they were not friendly people, and their having a female Twi’lek in a cage did not help this impression. And being that they seemed to be bad people, Boone engaged them. A small gun fight ensued between the three men, Boone and Jethro. Boone and Jethro mopped up quickly, and then searched the camp. It was here that they unlocked the Twi’lek girl, who turned out to be a former “companion” (Inoch) of Boone’s. Boone, in his typical fashion, had almost no memory of her. She didn’t seem to care, and she insisted that she be allowed to tag along. Neither of the human men had a problem with this, especially once she showed them to the speeder that the men had been using. However, wanting to take the crates that the dead men had been transporting as well, Boone placed a call to Titus to bring The Guilty Son to their location, and they loaded the crates into smuggling compartments onboard.
They then took the speeders to the location given to them by Roger. Once there, they gained access to the underground facility, that turned out to be a smuggling port. Most of the crates were biometrically sealed, and too large for any of the men to move without use of the Force, which Boone still refuses to acknowledge as a thing and Jethro has almost no knowledge of. Boone confronted the dock foreman, and after taking a show to the chest that left him winded, they killed the man. They then placed a call to Titus to bring the ship to just outside the dock, and then told Titus how to gain entry to the facility, which proved to be a good move, as a few moments later, a Wookie entered the dock, and began firing at Boone. Boone killed the Wookie, but only after Titus saved him by manipulating the Force to protect the young gunslinger. As Boone searched the body of the Wookie, he took the creatures bowcaster and the two grenades he found on the body.
As Boone was standing to leave, while Jethro was wandering toward the door after failing to find anything of value to take with him, a group of gang members could be heard nearing the open door to the dock. Boone, in a hurry, whipped a stun grenade through the open door, and turned to run out the far end of the bay. The men entered the docking bay, and fired on Boone, with one shot whizzing just past his right ear. The bolt passed and Boone, stumbling a little, turned and whipped the live fragmentation grenade in the general direction of them men, and in the same motion, turned and sprinted for the door. He took a bolt squarely in the back , but he made it successfully, with Titus already onboard and preparing to fly back to Lessu, and Jethro waiting in the event they needed to continue the fight. Inoch was waiting on board as well, but seemed to understand that the situation was a little tense, so she just hid in Boone’s quarters.
Once back in Lessu, Jethro and and Boone reported everything they had seen and learned of the location to Roger, who paid the men in full. Boone, a drink in hand once again, used his ability as a smooth talker to strike some side deals with Roger, that netted the pair an additional 5000 credits each. They then went back to The Guilty Son, where Boone backed his way into convincing Inoch to tell him her name so that he wouldn’t look like such a douchebag, though he definitely is. She consented to stay on board as the trio of Jethro, Titus, and Boone began making their way to an undisclosed location, in search of further business deals to be made. Boone and Inoch retreated to his quarters again, while Jethro approached Titus about his abilities with the Force, which he had seen on display at the smuggling dock.
