    Theraguin
    Hey there. Always good to see another brave soul - there aren't many of us left. I'm Captain Theraguin - last officer on the job here since the patrols stopped. Welcome to Black Sun territory.
    Meteor
    Are you saying there's no security down here?
    Theraguin
    You kidding me? My commander gave up on this sector a long time ago. I shouldn't even be here.
    The locals only venture out of their apartments when they have to scrounge for supplies.
    Now with no security forces, what future do they have? And Black Sun has a new game. Call it "Boom."
    Voidhound
    Uh-oh.
    Theraguin
    Black Sun steals Republic supply crates, takes the supplies out, then rigs the crates with explosives.
    Then they set the trapped crates in the street; make bets on how long before some fool tries to open them.
    Hero of Tython
    Why would anyone do a thing like that?
    Theraguin
    I don't know. You want to be charitable, assume Black Sun doesn't think straight.
    Meteor
    Only cowards attack civilian targets.
    Theraguin
    Yeah. It's one thing when the gangs shoot at us - but killing innocents for fun?
    Barsen'thor
    Hasn't someone tried to do something?
    Theraguin
    The locals don't know what's going on. And like I said before, security can't patrol here anymore.
    Barsen'thor
    It takes a dark soul to do such a thing.
    Theraguin
    Didn't believe it until I saw it with my own eyes - this mousy little woman - blown to pieces.
    I try to defuse the crates myself - the mechanics are simple, but Black Sun's everywhere. Nearly killed me last time.
    Hero of Tython
    We can handle Black Sun. We want to make things right.
    Theraguin
    That's- thank you. That's just what I needed to hear.
    Now, Black Sun's explosives are pretty simple. I can show you what to do.
    Anything you can do... I'll be more than grateful. But be damn careful.

    Theraguin
    Haven't heard an explosion in a good while. Guess that means you defused those crates.
    Meteor
    We think I found them all. Let's hope Black Sun doesn't get any more. Ran into some thugs....
    Theraguin
    We'll make sure. No more people will be killed looking for food.
    Black Sun's more than a match for security. I'm glad you were here to help.
    Now, I'm no rich Senator, but let me give you a little something for taking care of this. Recognition.
    Meteor
    It's a generous offer, but we can't accept.
    Voidhound
    Look, I don't normally do charity, but... let's say someone owes me a drink, okay?
    Theraguin
    Rare to find someone not out to make a profit.
    You probably have other business, so I won't keep you. Watch your back out there.

developed a new way of terrorizing the locals and refugees. Its members stole crates of Republic supplies and then placed them in public areas, but not before rigging them with explosives. When refugees went to open them, the crates exploded and killed all in the immediate area. Theraguin did not originally believe the stories about the "game" until he witnessed a woman blown to pieces by one of the explosive crates. He tried to defuse the crates, but there was little he could do without being killed himself by Black Sun thugs.
The operatives offered their help and Theraguin accepted the offer, explaining how to disarm the bombs. The opeatives proceeded to disarm the rigged crates, in the process also killing the Black Sun thugs who were behind the terror. After deactivating the detonator cores inside eight supply crates in the Gangland sector, they returned to Theraguin and reported their success.
