Zirak wastes no time in approaching the bar, standing menacingly behind the pair of duros as he addresses them in a voice loud enough for the entire room to hear.

"A choice lies before you, worms. Tell us where our companion you kidnapped is, or die."

Chapter X: The Vossiers
The second duros manages to dodge a hasty blast fired by Bane, which shatters a bottle of some unknown dark liquid on the shelf behind the bar. However he gives a cry of pain as Sora's lightsaber sweeps up to slice off his right hand at the wrist, sending his blaster pistol and severed hand clattering to the floor. Sora swiftly deactivates his weapon and kicks the blaster out of reach as the duros slumps backwards, clutching the cauterised stump where his hand used to be.

Chapter X: The Vossiers
The conversation in the room about them instantly subsides and the air hangs in silent tension. All eyes are on the party of newcomers, and even the devaronian bartender makes no attempt to argue about his shattered bottle of beverage, though he glances regretfully at the puddle of liquid and shattered glass. The devaronian space pirate has half risen from his chair, blaster drawn, but the elderly cerean places a hand on his shoulder and pulls him firmly back to his seat. A number of the trandoshans about the room have claws placed tentatively on their blasters, but they too refrain from interfering.

"All right," says Zirak in a dangerously soft voice which carries in the silence about them, placing the tip of his lightsaber a couple of centimeters from the duros' throat, "Let's try this one last time. Take us to our kidnapped companion, or die."

Chapter X: The Vossiers
The unfortunate duros has been hoisted up by Sora, who has placed an arm around the duros as he staggers out of the cantina. The patrons about them watch them leave warily, but continue to refrain from interfering. Once outside, the duros, still supported by Sora, has begun to lead the way through the streets. The party have attracted more than a few glances, but on Nar Shaddaa beings know better than to stop or stare, and have quickly hurried on their way. After ten minutes or so of traversing their way through the bustling skywalks of the Docks Sector they have arrived at a dilapidated skytower, a kilometer or so from the Jekk'Jekk Tarr.

Chapter X: The Vossiers
The duros has lead the way into what appears to be a foyer. It is deserted, and covered in grime and graffiti. He has approached a turbolift to the left side of the foyer, pressing his hip against the controls to open it. The door opens with a surprisingly healthy beep, and he has stepped into the turbolift. Once the others are on board, he he has pressed the inner controls with his elbow, and they have descended a couple of levels. The doors have then opened once more to reveal a grimy corridor which extends before them. A transparisteel window forms one side of the corridor, although it is caked with so much grime and graffiti that it is impossible to make anything in the dark and gloom of the lower city streets below. The duros has lead them up to a large door.

Chapter X: The Vossiers
The corridor before them curves away to the right and left, forming a giant circle. Apartment doors branch off the corridor every dozen or so meters, and makeshift barricades seem to have been constructed about the corridor with empty canisters and crates. Behind these barricades they are able to make out half a dozen duros who crouch, blasters trained on the entrance. Another seven or eight duros hurry out of apartment doors to join them blasters drawn. The injured duros jerks free of Sora's grasp the moment the door is open, darting to the left and back toward the elevator.

"Oh no you don't," Zirak has said coldly as he snatches hold of the fleeing duros and drags him around in front of him. He then advances, lightsaber ignited, using the duros as a living shield. He does not remain a living shield for long, as a series of blasts strike his chest, legs and arms. As Zirak reaches the barricade he tosses aside the duros' corpse and flips over the barricade, impaling the duros behind with his lightsaber.
