In all the cantinas in all the spaceports in all the galaxy, there had to be at least one unhappy drunk.

Generally ignored, unacknowledged and barely noticed, he usually picked a quiet corner booth which, even at peak business hours, only he would occupy. In rare cases, he'd spend most of the time at his table asleep, only waking up enough to keep ringing up the tab that outweighed the annoyance of having him around by sheer credit intake caused by his presence. Noone would ever be suprised when they saw a serving droid pick up the already full tankard in front of him only to place down another. A cantina owner looking for a chea buck was hardly a rare sight across the galaxy.

Noone ever paid attention to him, he existed everywhere in the galaxy, and he was so easy to impersonate that Xaph almost felt guilty every time he did it.

"Informative Statement: Your last drink is warm now, Master."

To anyone else watching, Xaph was waking up after being asked a question by a serving droid. To Xaph and the HK-50 droid that he was speaking to, it was a warning that someone in the bar was acting suspiciously.

"Could it be dangerous if I drink it now?"

"Tentative Response: It could pack quite a punch, but it is rather weak."

Weak? Xaph disguised a glance aroud the cantina as stretching out his neck and shoulders. The move wasn't missed, however, by a clearly nervous man in a Nespisian army uniform who was sitting at the bar and staring right at him.

"Thanks for the warning, droid. Take this and dump it."

"Statement: At once, Master."

The soldier was getting up now, clearly spooked and realizing his cover was blown. Xaph followed suit, leaving a credchip behind him and nearly tripping over an actual bar room drunk on his way out to follow the soldier.

Nespis soldiers following him? Well, he hadn't yet done anything illegal here...although he did fully intend to. They couldn't have captured a HK unit without alerting all the others, and he doubted they were so desparate as to try and pick up the bounty on his head. Still, the best way to find out would be the horse's mouth.

Xaph quickened his pace near imperceptibly, and soon caught up with the soldier, but when he dropped his hand to his blaster, he was caught with a suprise of his own as cold steel pressed against the back of his hood and a low voice commanded him from behind.

"Hands up, Bounty Hunter."
