STAR WARS: The Moon Swing Chronicles
Rala had been everywhere around the galaxy. Not as a pilot, not even as a passenger, but as a girl-for-hire, taking the jobs nobody else would do. A broken hyperdrive injector on an old spice hauler, a fused gas coupling on an aging blaster rifle, or the occasional murder of a corrupt official.
Maybe that’s where she went wrong. Maybe she had gotten too greedy. Perhaps if she hadn’t killed the Imperial prefect, who just by chance, looked very similar to the local snitch she was paid to bump off, then perhaps she wouldn’t have been standing amongst a group prisoners, bound for the Kessel spice mines (for the second time mind you- first time was during Volume 2, Episode 7 – Dunes of Innocence) when Santhou, Daurek and Ledala arrived on Vengler.
When the blue robed Monks attacked, Rala broke free of her bonds, and ran after the group. She requested to join them after telling them her story. The group agreed, and took her aboard the Moon Swing as a hired help.
During this adventure Ledala picked up a shipment of food stuffs which she was going to use to sell to the Alliance. It was this however that indirectly was the downfall of Rala.
Unfortunately this shipment of food was laced with the biogenetic weapon called Blue Harvest. Ral was one of the first causalities of this outbreak and died before Thermal Force was able to obtain a cure.
