Competition: House Wren - Underworld Bounty #1

House Wren - Underworld Bounty #1

Nar Shaddaa was never a place one of dignified qualities would ever dare to tread. Despite being an urban sprawl, it was the moon to the homeworld of the Hutts and with a nickname like "Smugglers Moon" it was no surprise it was haven for scum and villainy all around the sector.

One such scumbag was known as Emilia Skyheart, a young and beautiful Twi'Lek woman that held a reputation amongst the local men as a bit of a harlet. Beautiful, yet vulnerable. Most certainly not dangerous.

They couldn't have been more wrong.

From a young age she was a master of poisons, toxins and manipulation and she used these skills to kill and Rob those with considerable wealth and as the purple skinned woman looked down at her latest victim, a tall Togorian clutching a battle of liquor laced with poison she had bought for him, a sickening grin spread across her face.

"Too easy." She said as she leaned down to take whatever possessions and credits the man kept with him, she then wandered out of the dark side alley moments later to search for yet another victim for her womanly charms.

This would prove to be one victim too many, for the Togorian's communicator was open the whole time whilst he was with the woman in question, leading the Togorian's business partners to discover of his death and who caused it.

Prompt: "Looking to do a bit of good? Bit of bad? Bit of both? House Wren has those options for you."

We have come into the possession of a contract for a bounty on the head of one Emilia Skyheart. You are to infiltrate the scumhole of Nar Shaddaa and bring her in either dead or alive. It's up to you but be wary, she may have allies.

House Wren thrives in the seedy underbellies of the universe. It's time we showed them why.
