Cyran was on his way back from doing some small time bounty hunting in The Sith Empire's territory. However, he had willfully made a professional oversight during his time in TSE controlled space and that was the fact that he didn't process a bounty hunting, or peacekeeping certificate for the interstellar government. But Cyran thought he'd be fine. It was just quick in and out kind of job.
Currently the Zeltron bounty hunter was in a space station near the edge of the Sith's territory. Restocking on consumables for his Pursuer-Class Enforcement Ship. He was at his final stop before he was gonna head out of the government's borders before heading on to Coruscant for another job dealing with criminals popping up in the aftermath of the judgement day scale battle that took place there.
After him and his ship were all stocked up he'd pilot his way out from the space station and into the wilds of dark space. Taking a little while to set up the coordinates for his next hyperspace jump. Effectively, he was a sitting duck.
