Shortly after arriving on Coruscant, Slivko goes off on his own for a time while Arten overhears a nearby argument at the spaceport. Rune and Myn discover it’s their old friend Captain Jenif Wells who is trying to be charged more by the pilot of the transport. After a little Jedi intimidation, Wells retrieves her baggage and explains her predicament in a local cantina. She was forced to jettison some questionable cargo and now a Hutt owns her ship, The Crimson Hawk, and she needs to earn enough to buy it back. Leaving Wells with Arten, Rune and Myn debrief at the Temple. It turns out that Senator Shae is not a rat and informed the Council that he was happy with their help. The Masters inform Rune that there have been death threats against any senator who might possibly be a successor to the previous Supreme Chancellor Sidrona Diath. The Jedi have offered some token additional protection services while the Senate Guard investigates. Rune is assigned to protect an aged Duros Senator named Bendak Crazell (who will also pay for additional bodyguards). As a last order of business, the Council says that both Knight Vara Nreem and Padawan Horath have been missing too long and are presumed dead. They suggest that Rune become Myn’s Knight and he agrees. Javan checks the database and discovers that the Jedi are planning on sending another Knight in one final attempt to bring Ulic back but that Vandar has recommended that it not be Rune. The group goes to the senate and the building is bustling with activity. Coming out of Bendak’s office they see at attractive intense looking woman with raven hair, razor cut on one side with designs etched in wearing tight leathers. The receptionist ushers them into the inner office where they meet Senator Crazell and his assistant, Roi Remor. They have all full itinerary and need to get going. First up is a cocktail function at an art gallery where a man with bushy eyebrows gives Wells a false alarm when he reaches into his jacket for an autograph datapad. Later, at a walk-a-thon, a sniper in a window across the way attempts to kill the senator but Arten dispatches his with a single well-aimed burst. The next day, another attempt is made on the senator’s life – this time at an indoor hall at a university. The 20 heavily armored campus security guards turn on Crazell and start shooting. All but the most essential events have now been cleared from Bendak’s schedule but a 35,000 credit a plate fundraising dinner at a fancy hotel cannot be cancelled. Bomb-sniffing droids, metal detectors and other precautions are taken but 15 Assassin Droids have been stashed underneath the tables themselves. Rune anticipates it and slashes down on one of the tables, revealing the hidden threat! During the fight, Myn takes the senator into the kitchen and hast to fend off two droids long enough to buy time for Arten to help. After the brutal battle, Roi attempt to kill Crazell and he is revealed to be a Chameleon Droid. As they rush the senator out of the hotel, the real Roi is discovered hidden away – dead. Up until this point, the Senator has been unusually calm with multiple threats on his life but seeing Remor’s body changes his whole demeanor. As the motorcade speeds away (low to the ground of a park/platform), an explosion lifts the lead car with Myn in it up off the ground. A group of 4 assassins make another attempt on Crazell’s life; they go by the code names of Dead Eyes, C-Strike, Fuze and Killshot. After defeating the trained killers, Rune approaches the Senator and asks him if he thinks this has gone on long enough and isn’t it time he ends it. Bendak is shocked that the Jedi Knight figured it out and confesses! Breaking down in tears over Roi, he says that no one else was ever meant to get hurt. The plans was for the senator to be killed while still working for the Senate and thus get a major extra payoff for his family. You see, he was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness and wanted to be able to secure his grandchildren’s future. But he doesn’t know how to stop it – Roi handled all the arrangements. Rune arrests Bendak and ensures that his assets are frozen and he is placed in a Senate prison cell (muttering something under his breath which only Myn hears). The mysterious razor-cut haired assassin is watching via monoculars from a nearby building. She tells her female Cathar associate that it’s over and they will leave with what’s left of their profit, foregoing the second half of the payment. Episode ends.
