Plot summary[edit | edit source]

The High Cost of Revenge
Nakano Lash betrayed the bounty hunter crew she led by killing their client,
Khamus—the heir of the Mourner's Wail Syndicate—which incited a war between the
Mourner's Wail and their rival, the Unbroken Clan.

Years later, Lash reemerged and the price on her head attracted hordes of hunters—including
the remains of her old crew: the Trandoshan Bossk; Boba Fett; the human T'onga, whose
brother, T'ongor, died as a result of Lash's actions, and her cyborg protégé Valance, who T'onga
ambushed and forced to help her find Lash.

Lash revealed that her old team had been hired to murder Krynthia, the heir to the Mourner's
Wail, who was pregnant with Khamus' child. Lash instead escaped with the mortally wounded
Krynthia and raised the child in secret, hoping to use her to end the violent syndicate war.

The truth caused T'onga to end her quest for vengeance. But Boba Fett is still out for blood....
