    It's the Kel Dor homeworld, and I'm guessing the demonym for the those originating there. I can't find any support for it in a quick search. "Kel Dor" may be the species name, language name, and the demonym.

    I was waiting for at least a full week to pass before just going ahead with locating Anfopor. It's been that week now, so...should I?

    Sorry. Both jobs are picking up.

    I didn't realize the dead guy was a friend of Lusk's. I think gift wrapping him for delivery may be the better plan after all.

    I also think we should check in with the local Syndicate, if for no other reason than to hand over the gem money before they come to collect.

    Well well. As far as Gial can tell, would it be easier to circumvent the trap, or fake his location before tripping it?

    It would be easier to circumvent the trap, but thatís still exceedingly difficult and could trigger a trace. This being Coruscant, they have a galaxy class communication system.

    Heíd have to have physical access to two of the three nearest comm towers to fake his location, so by default that makes it harder.

    Alternatively, you could open up a connection, run a trace to ping a location, and close it before moving locations to avoid anyone they send to find you.

    I meant itís not guaranteed you will be able to find him, so assuming you donít in the first six seconds, how long will you search without finding him before you give up, knowing the authorities will be tracing your location?

    Wait, are we splitting up ow? I don't think Kikari can solo whatever's going on with Anfopor.

    Also! Does anyone know if there's a power like the Force Projection that Luke used in TLJ in SWSE?

    Nah, pretty sure this scene is supposed to be played in parallel to whatever we're going to do next. Anfopor's skipped planet though, so I guess we'll tackle ex-governor Lam.

    Ah, also, how many credits was the original transaction for the pearl worth?

    Somewhere around 30,000 credits.

    From Post#1:
    Yaris VIPs:
    * Former Yaris Governor: Anton Lam - escaped prior to the rebellion of the muirdion against the kalatar government on Yaris. The party has incriminating evidence of his collaboration with the Sith and that the coup was partially planned by him. He has a wife and daughter (attending university) on Coruscant, along with numerous interests and properties on Kalatar colonies and in major core worlds.

    From Post#2:
    Gial is able to decrypt the files he took from then governor Lamís server after about four hours of work. There are hours of communications taking place over more than a year, between the governor and a cloaked and masked figure who initially called himself mr vonn, but who, after coercing the governor to Ďbe wise, and become richí by implicitly threatening his wife and daughter (attending university on coruscant), revealed himself as a darth mallis.

    The conversations are damning as they are chilling as the governor follows Vonnís advice and consolidates power, skimming off the profits of Yaris colony, and then continuing to follow the shady and borderline illegal business advice and instructions (and growing ever more wealthy in the process). Later, there are discussions of weapons shipments, credit transfers, intelligence, assassinations, and managing of moles and leaks to the media on both sides of the muiridon / Kalatar conflict on Yaris. It appears the governor had initially taken the advice of the Sith in order to gain nearly absolute control of the colony, then sold out his post and responsibilities before fleeing the hostilities, which had escalated faster than he had anticipated. Itís also clear governor Lam had contacts within the muiridon resistance on Yaris, but there is no clue at least initially on the tapes of who that might be. Itís also clear that the Sith has been pulling strings on Yaris for at least a year, possibly longer, and the uprising there was clearly orchestrated by at least some remnants of Kraytís forces.
