from Star Wars: Maul: Lockdown

?What?s his name?? she asked. ?The new inmate??Star Wars: Maul: Lockdown
?Prisoner 11240?? ThreeDee answered back. ?I?ve already taken the liberty of uploading all relevant data onto your tablet.?
Sadiki punched the numbers into the console in front of her, watching her new champion?s file scroll across the screen. It read:
Date of Entry: 01102211224
Height: 1.75 meters
Mass: 80 kg
Prior Occupation: Mercenary
Charged With: Murder
?That?s it?? Sadiki stabbed the cursor down, but the screen was blank. ?Where?s the rest of it??
?There is no more.?
?Where did he come from? Can somebody at least tell me that??
?He was apprehended on a routine sweep of the mining colonies on Subterrel, where local authorities identified him from an outstanding murder charge. Initial lab cultures and blood work are still pending.?
The droid clicked and whirred toward her, photoreceptors brightening. ?So far he has eluded any more detailed classification. Would you like me to order a full psychiatric workup??
Sadiki considered before shaking her head. ?No. Not yet. For now let?s see how long he lasts. He wouldn?t be the first big noise to come through here and pull a quick fade.?
will be released on January 28, 2014.
