Jaxxon and Amaiza

From the Apocrypha of Voren Na'al

In all my years of research, no topic stymied me as much as my investigation into the mysterious rogue known as Jaxxon. Polite inquiries to Princess Leia Organa were met with a terse, "No comment." Luke Skywalker begged off, referring me to Han Solo for details, but for the longest time the closest I could get to him was his trusted first mate, the mighty Chewbacca whose response of a wild howl of either rage or laughter was enough to change my line of questioning. In desperation, I made a side trip to a little known world called Aduba-3 and interviewed a farmer named Jimm who told me a fantastic tale of space pirates and giant monsters. However the veracity of anyone who calls himself "The Starkiller Kid" is highly suspect and his story is best discounted.

Finally, one night, after numerous glasses of Deltron Spiced Wine, Han Solo consented to answer a few questions.

Na'al: The Kessel Run in eleven parsecs, huh? You're right, Captain Solo, that is amazing.

Solo: You betcha. And call me, Han, pal. Serv-a-bot! Another round of drinks! So what is it you want to know, Borin?

N: Uh, that's Voren, sir. [Waits for a response. Gets none.] Well, I was wondering about an old friend of yours, Jaxxon.

S: Jaxxon! Great guy. He helped me save a planet once. Him and the others.

N: Others?

S: You bet! Lessee, there was Jaxxon, and Amaiza, of course. Woof, as Chewie would say. And that old crank with the lightsaber. Damn near cut my head off with that thing! Oh, yeah, there was that spiny guy. And I'm pretty sure there was a droid around there too. [Starts counting fingers.] Was that eight?

N: [Thinks before answering] Um, I don't think so. About Jaxxon, sir?

S: [Turns attention back to Na'al.] What? He's a green, seven foot, meat eating rabbit guy. What else is there to say?

N: Well, how'd you meet him? Where'd he come from?

S: He comes from the planet of green rabbit people. Look, all I know is he walked into a bar on Aduba, kicked the choobies of a couple of spuglies and I hired him on the spot. Afterwards he hooked up with Amaiza. Last I heard, they were kicking around the Corporate Sector, running guns for the Trianii and spice for Ploovo.

N: Okay, what about Amaiza?

S: [Wags a finger at Na'al.] I don't know what you've heard, but don't believe everything that Wookiee fuzzball says about me! We're just friends! You write that down.

N: I hadn't heard anything, sir! Really!

S: Good. Yeah, Amaiza. We first met on Delphon; this was just after she went AWOL from the 3WA. Later, she ran with the Black Hole Gang and whipped them into shape. I guess she did too good a job, 'cause the Empire shut 'em down, real efficient like. Like the others, she was laying low on Aduba, looking for some extra creds to set up another big score. And that's when I showed up, you know, to save the planet.

N: What happened on Aduba-3?

S: [Finishes his drink and gets up.] It's a long story, kid. Let me give you some free advice: make something up. It'll probably make more sense than what really happened. Trust me. [Walks away.] Thanks for the drinks.

N: [Watches Solo leave. Sips his wine and ponders briefly, before beginning to write.] "Once upon a time on a planet named Abuba-3 some villagers were being terrorized by a band of cruel outlaws, and in their distress they called out for a champion or two. Or eight..."
