    Dialog transcript
    Cera
    Thank you for coming so fast! I told you the commander would send someone, Garthe!
    Garthe
    The commander didn't send them! You think they're from base? You ever seen a regulation group of soldiers look like that?
    Cera
    Okay, maybe. But that doesn't mean they can't help us. Please, sirs, have any of you ever faced a rakghoul?
    Meteor
    Is this a research station or something?
    Cera
    We're a Republic archaeological salvage team. They call us the "corpse counters" because we're cataloging the bodies from the bombardment. It's important work-
    Garthe
    It's pointless work! People are dying out here so the Republic can have a list they'll never look at.
    Cera
    These people deserve someone to acknowledge their deaths.
    Garthe
    We were in an old Czerka Works pipe this morning when those monsters came out of nowhere. They killed our guards and dragged down half a dozen of our team before we could do anything. We don't know if anyone's still alive, but if they are, every second counts.
    Cera
    They might not be dead. We ran, we didn't see. Could you please... just check if anyone survived?
    Garthe
    Let it go, Cera. They're dead already. Another few hours won't matter.
    Hero of Tython
    If there is any chance your friends live, they deserve every effort to save them.
    Cera
    Thank you. I'm honored that you would help us.
    Meteor
    Don't expect miracles. If your friends have been gone long, there's not much hope.
    Garthe
    That's what I've been saying. Rakghouls don't leave survivors. They just make more rakghouls.
    Cera
    Someone could have hid... you never know!
    Voidhound
    I wouldn't want to be the one left behind in a hole full of those things.
    Cera
    I wanted to go back for them-
    Garthe
    Don't be ridiculous, Cera. Then we'd just be dead, too.
    Barsen'thor
    Might give it a shot.
    Cera
    Thank you. It means a lot, knowing we're not abandoning them. We were in the Czerka Works pipeline. If you go soon, there may still be someone there.
    Garthe
    No. There's no hope for our friends now... but maybe you can make those monsters pay for what they did.

    Dialog transcript
    Cera
    You're back! And... I don't see anyone with you. Did you...? A- are they...?
    Garthe
    Dead? What did you think? The rakghouls would buy them flowers and send them home?
    Meteor
    I'm sorry. Your friends are gone, but I made sure those rakghouls will never kill again.
    Garthe
    Cold comfort. There's probably another swarm already moving in. If you killed those freaks, I'll call it even. At least we can clear out the corpses without becoming one.
    Voidhound
    Actually, one of them left you a message, Garthe....
    Cera
    A message? Oh, that must be Elihsu. They were very close. I'll call the base and tell them what happened.
    Garthe
    I'm putting in for a transfer. No job is worth this.
    Voidhound
    I hear you've found a way to make it worth your while.
    Garthe
    Wha- what did you find? Was Elihsu alive? What did that lying coward say about me?
    Hero of Tython
    You should have more respect for those murdered by the Sith.
    Garthe
    Three hundred years ago! All the Sith involved are just as dead as them.
    Barsen'thor
    Greed's one thing, Garthe, but grave robbing's just low.
    Garthe
    Okay, fine. So I'm sending some trinkets into the black market instead of Republic archives. So what?
    Barsen'thor
    Elihsu says he knows how the dead feel now when you desecrate them.
    Garthe
    I've given five years of my life to this rock! Now that's worth nothing because I laid claim to a few forgotten necklaces?
    Garthe
    So, fine. You found me out. Who cares?
    Meteor
    We'll see if you think prisoners have as few rights as the dead.
    Garthe
    Very funny.
    Cera
    The commander's sending a team to retrieve the bodies. Thank you for doing what you could.
    Meteor
    Ask your partner what's been happening to the valuables you find.
    Garthe
    Oh, please. This is so humiliating. Yes, Elihsu and I were stealing some trinkets for the black market. The blasted dead don't cry over it, why should you?
    Cera
    How could you! You told me those boxes were going to the Republic archive.
    Cera
    Yeah, so I lied. What... you going to turn me in for that, too?
    Cera
    We'll work this out later - we've asked enough of your time. Although... if you have a moment....

- who was attacked by the rakghouls. The holorecording stored on the datapad revealed that Elihsu and Garthe have been stealing trinkets from the dead and selling them on the black market. The operatives returned to Cera back at Waypoint Station Aurek and told her what they found out.
Cera was furious about the theft, but decided not to turn Garthe in, promising to deal with it later.
