Several months had passed since both Jade and Tugoro had encountered a Sith who went by the name of Thetan on Nar Shaddaa. Originally the two Jedi had gone to the Sith controlled moon to investigate a lead. Jade and Tugoro had been ambushed earlier on at a space port in New Alderaan. The mob had claimed to have known Jade, referring to her as Sunrider scum. After some initial investigation, they were lead to Sansa the Hutt and to his place of residence. Yet things as usual didn't end up being as simple as they should have been. They had encountered the Sith in question, dueled with him, only for Jade to kill the Hutt and for the Sith to escape. Yet he had said that his work had been done before running. A most unusual scenario as the Sith had no problem fighting the Jedi, yet he was more interested in having Sansa eliminated, which in the end he accomplished by Jade's own hand, and then had left both Jedi baffled.
Jade was flying solo. In her favourite ship. The Soul of Wildcat, her personal TIE Defender. Jade had had this ship since the days of her being a fighter pilot for the New Republic. She was part of an elite squadron who used Imperial ships to fight against the very Imperials themselves, and Wildcat had been her callsign. Jade was always a reckless one. Yet her skills as a pilot were rivaled only by the best. Thus her callsign. Over the years not much had changed with her. Sure she was older, however she was no less reckless and cocky than she was when she was 15 years younger. Even her younger Jedi friend and also ace pilot Tugoro Taidarious, claimed to be more mature than her. Of course he would never say this to her face, yet Jade had the gift of mind reading, and not only knew he thought this, but knew herself just how true it was.
Jade now en-route to Hok, where a lead Tugoro and herself had discovered existed a hideout that was owned by a notorious Hutt called Kelan. Apparently the Sith that she had dueled with, Thetan could be here. And possibly his leader, whoever he was. Jade had made an effort to brush up on her lightsabre skills over the last few months. Before she had met Tugoro, it had been years since she had dueled, or even trained. Over the months that passed, Jade had practiced for hours getting her Soresu and Ataru forms back to her peak levels. She would need all the practice she could get, as now she faced not just the possibility of facing one Sith, but perhaps two. The apprentice Thetan and his unknown master.
Jade's TIE Defender's sensors picked up a settlement on the surface as she entered the planet's atmosphere. She would fly her ship into the local spaceport. A Jedi flying an Imperial fighter wasn't a common thing, so she decided to land at the space port instead of over the outskirts of the settlement, as she would assume that the presence of an Imperial ship wouldn't arouse any suspicions. Well at least that was what she thought. Jade landed and hopped out of her ship. Wearing her usual pilot's clothes, she kept both her lightsabre and blaster concealed, and then made her way over to the local cantina not too far from the space port itself.
