Saving Sylvn (3)
Basic info
First appearance: Star Wars Republic 00 : Prelude to Rebellion
Relations: Tatooine, [Ephant Mon's Transport]
Ki-Adi-Mundi was found not guilty after an incident during the rally against Elder Council when one of the Cerean adolescents was killed by Ki-Adi-Mundi's lightsaber. Ki-Adi-Mundi was tasked to find the yound man who was responsible and bring him to justice, along with his daughter, Sylvn. As soon as it became known that those involved fled Cerea on Ephant Mon's freighter and the freighter was located in orbit of Tatooine, Ki-Adi-Mundi gave pursuit.
Meanwhile Ephant Mon and others found themselves trapped in freighter's escape pod - the main hold of the ship was full of deadly divviks. Sylvn was locked outside the pod, while Mon, Maj-Odo-Nomor and Twin were safely secured inside. However, the pod could not be launched from the inside; only the manual release lever would send it out to space. Mon let Sylvn enter the pod, hoping that her father would come to the rescue, and as expected, Mundi soon arrived, eventually fighting his way through the divviks to the escape pod. Mon then demanded that the Cerean Jedi hit the manual release lever, thus ensuring the Chevin's escape, or he would ignite the pod's engines, killing all the passengers inside, including himself and Sylvn. He gave Mundi ten seconds to decide, though after several seconds Maj lunged at Mon, furious with him for putting their lives at danger. However, as the young Cerean launched at Ephant, the smuggler shot him in the chest with a blaster pistol, killing him instantly. As Ephant Mon counted down to one, Ki pulled the manual release lever, and Mon, along with a horrified Sylvn and her friend Twin, launched into space.
Mon then took Sylvn and Twin to Jabba's Citadel on Tatooine, with Ki-Adi-Mundi following them. Jabba was furious with Ephant for returning from mission without any Malium, and with a Jedi trailing him. The Hutt gangster was also worried that Mundi might intercept some ships belonging to Jabba's associates, which were full of illegal goods. Ephant decided to stage a distraction for the Jedi Knight, chaining Sylvn and Twin to the roof of Jabba's Citadel in the middle of a great storm. With the Jedi preoccupied fighting Weequay and Gamorrean thugs, Jabba sent the shuttles into space. Mon seemed to have escaped Mundi's wrath, as the Cerean and his daughter had gone after Jabba's shuttle.
