She did not expect to ever see this place again.
After being smuggled in by Alistair Fenn, and leaving with Atefeh Lorr, Jyn felt certain that her time here was at an end. Behind her for good. But in the journey back to Aurum from the Shadowport, when Atefeh fell asleep in her arms and Jyn could do little more than sit and think, she could not help but feel unbridled guilt toward all of the poor souls she was leaving behind. The children left at the mercy of those vicious 'caregivers' who would let them rot if it meant gaining a little bit more funding.
Discussions with Arekk after their arrival back in Azar City made up her mind.
Nobody was going to be left behind.
They had space enough in the City to bring the children of misfortune back with them. A larger vessel had been a necessity, after all the Hawk only held so many passengers and Jyn had found out through sources that there were upward of 40 children housed within. as well as permission from the Je'daii Council to make this move. Jyn and Ar'ekk would put their name forward to take over guardianship of them all, so as not to tie the Je'daii - or Aurum - up with this mess, but once they were safely in their custody that Guardianship would change hands.
The Force Sensitives among them would find a home within the Je'daii, while those who were not Sensitive would find homes within the City. There were so many people who had lost children, who could not have their own but longed to, that she felt certain that they would be snatched up faster than anyone could imagine. A few men and women had already stepped forward to house them.
Stardust had been left behind in Azar City. Jyn did not want to risk any harm to her person should things go south, so she had entrusted her daughter into the care of Sahna Te and Ignis Imura in the meantime. Between the two of them, and all the other Je'daii who were around and were close enough to Jyn to be deemed family, she knew Atefeh would be well cared for.
As their civilian transport vessel came upon the planet, Arekk relayed the relevant information and documentation (which he had acquired alongside the ship itself from old contacts on Nar Shaddaa) and soon enough they were coming upon the City.
Nerves ran through her, but also a sense of necessity. This had to be done, somebody had to look out for the children.
