Ã¢Â€ÂœIts not the planet that poses a problem,Ã¢Â€Â Nora explained, Ã¢Â€ÂœItÃ¢Â€Â™s the facility itself.Ã¢Â€Â The huntress inserted a different data disc and an image of the planet took the place of the rotating helm over the datapad. Ã¢Â€ÂœBrozyna is obscure but not deserted. The entire planet is one giant illegal operation. If you want something youÃ¢Â€Â™re not allowed to have, then youÃ¢Â€Â™ll probably find it here.Ã¢Â€Â
Saviin made a face, Ã¢Â€ÂœIÃ¢Â€Â™ve heard of this place...Ã¢Â€Â she said, Ã¢Â€ÂœIt sickens me..."
Nora nodded in agreement, Ã¢Â€ÂœIf itÃ¢Â€Â™s prohibited, banned, restricted, endangered, or down right inhumane, and can be found in the homes of galactic big wigs, then it no doubt came from Brozyna. The whole thing is hush hush....controlled by rich landholders who cater to the wealthy in nearly every system you can name.Ã¢Â€Â
The lavender haired woman drummed her fingers on the table, Ã¢Â€ÂœAs long as the rich and powerful get their whims, then nobody sees any of this going on...not even the slavery...Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœExactly...Ã¢Â€Â Nora confirmed. Ã¢Â€ÂœHowever none of that is our concern, at least not with regard to the mission.Ã¢Â€Â She deactivated the datapad and itÃ¢Â€Â™s images. Ã¢Â€ÂœApparently one of these fat landholders has a fancy for Mandalorian artifacts. Sources say he has amassed a sizeable collection, the finer pieces of which he keeps secured in the depository that we are going to raid. IÃ¢Â€Â™m told that the place will be hard to crack...this guy is forking out a lot of credits to keep his loot safe.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœWonder what makes him so interested in Mando relics...Ã¢Â€Â Saviin wondered aloud.
Nora shrugged, Ã¢Â€ÂœDoesnÃ¢Â€Â™t matter....heÃ¢Â€Â™s not going to have the collection much longer...Ã¢Â€Â
SaviinÃ¢Â€Â™s brows knitted, Ã¢Â€ÂœI thought we were just going after the helm?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœWe are being sent to retrieve the helm,Ã¢Â€Â Nora advised, Ã¢Â€ÂœHowever, anything else we pick up in the process is ours to keep...Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœSo if this is just some foolÃ¢Â€Â™s personal museum, why do you expect heavy resistance?Ã¢Â€Â
Nora leaned in, Ã¢Â€ÂœBecause thereÃ¢Â€Â™s more than just Mando trinkets in there. This individual is also a slave trader...and a lot of his Ã¢Â€ÂœmerchandiseÃ¢Â€Â is held over in the depository until buyers come to collect their goods. Slavery may be banned, but you know as well as I do that thereÃ¢Â€Â™s still a market for it if you look in the right places.Ã¢Â€Â
The dark haired huntress took a sip of her ale before continuing. Ã¢Â€ÂœGetting on Brozyna wonÃ¢Â€Â™t be hard. These people are money hungry. As long as we can show weÃ¢Â€Â™ve got the credits to buy, then theyÃ¢Â€Â™ll let us through. Besides, thereÃ¢Â€Â™s pretty much a constant flow of traffic on and off the planet...shipments going out, buyers coming in....weÃ¢Â€Â™ll just let them think weÃ¢Â€Â™re there to shop like everyone else. But what weÃ¢Â€Â™re up against at the depository itself remains to be seen. I can assure you that if they are moving slaves...people...through there, then the security is going to be extensive.Ã¢Â€Â
