STAR WARS: The Moon Swing Chronicles
Jaluun is a Sullustan with a passion for thieving. Ever since he was a small child, things around the house would go missing, only to end up in his room. Sometimes even he wonders how this got into his possession. As a result of this, Jaluun’s parents were constantly on his back, and he would often dream of running away to the stars.
Jaluun is the cousin of T’laerean Larn who was left on the planet Gelgelar after he refused to return to to Sullust with his parents. Jaluun had not seen his favourite cousin for a few years, so one day decided that ‘home-life’ wasn’t his scene and ran away. Jaluun stowed away on a freighter called the Centaurian Eagle. While waiting in the shadows of the cargo bay, Steve Cantium, the owner and pilot of the ship confronted the boy. Jaluun asked if the smuggler was going anywhere near Gelgelar to which he stated that he wasn’t, for the time being. The smuggler threatened to send the child out the airlock. Jaluun pleaded with the man, begging for Cantium to allow him to stay aboard. The young smuggler agreed, as Jaluun reminded him of a friend he once knew. The terms of the agreement were that he would need to remain aboard and work for his keep. Jaluun agreed.
The two travelled together for a few months before picking up a group of monks in blue robes whose destination was Gelgelar. Steve asked Jaluun to leave them alone, but his curiosity got the better of him, and it was not long before the boy was asking questions. Most of them ignored the child, or placed their hands on his head, saying things like “Blessed are the children”. Jaluun walked away, none the wiser for the experience.
Soon after, Jaluun left Steve’s employment to visit his cousin. This propelled Jaluun on a series of adventures with Thermal Force and a strange young man named Jovan Farstrider.
