      61 BSW4- During one of the Old Republic's colonisation pushes, the
               followers of H'kig purchase two colony ships and go in search

               the Corellian system, a colony world called Tralus where Denn
               Solo and Tira Gama Solo are living.  A fleet of these raiders

               galaxy.  The Project launches from Yaga Minor, but once their
               ship exits Old Republic space, it is intercepted and destroyed

               secretly takes him to a medical droid which saves his life,
               paying the droid out of her own small store of credits.  Shrike
               is mad, but subsides because one of the pieces of jewelry Han
               stole turns out to be set with a genuine Krayt dragon pearl.

               grown to like the foods she prepares.  Dewlanna could go back
               to Kashyyyk, but she chooses to stay aboard the Luck because

             - Dewlanna learns to play sabacc, and asks Shrike innocently

               drunk.  She discovers that Han's last name is "Solo" and tells
               Han that same night.  He thinks it sounds great.
             - The next time the Trader's Luck is in orbit around Corellia,
               Han steals time away from pickpocketing and burglary to do some
               research into his new surname at one of the public archives.
               A few weeks later, Han is attending a school so well-known that
               it merits a visit from the famous Senator Garm Bel Iblis.  Han
               raises his hand and asks him two precocious questions that are
               insightful and intelligent enough to make the Senator really
               notice him.  After class is over, Bel Iblis stops Han, shakes
               his hand, and asks him his name.  Han sees that nobody else is
               within earshot and proudly tells the Senator his real name.
             - In his research, Han checks the more recent Corellian news
               files and finds the name Tiion Sal-Solo, a wealthy but
               reclusive widow with one son.  He decides to take the chance of
               running away and contacting the Solo family.
             - Han makes his way to the Sal-Solo estate and stays there for
               six weeks.  He is mistreated by his cousin Thrackan the entire
               time, and eventually, Garris and Larrad Shrike are able to
               track him down.
             - Afterwards, Shrike holds back in his punishment only by the
               fact that he doesn't want to "damage" Han permanently because
               of his growing reputation as an expert speeder and swoop pilot.
               However, there are many things he can do that won't cause
               permanent damage, and he does most of them.

               at the fight and are both impressed.
             - Feeling cocky after his win, Han lashes out at Captain Shrike
               for the first time and is instantly sorry.  The speed and
               strength of Garris's returning blow snaps his head back and
               splits both lips so thoroughly that Dewlanna has to feed him
               mush for a week until they heal.  Shrike doesn't bother with a
               strap, he just uses his fists, battering the boy's face and

               She makes plans to study archaeology, with an emphasis on
               ancient art, at the university on Coruscant.  She is scared at
               the idea of going to the university, since she's never been on
               her own before.
             - Bria Tharen begins seeing Dael Levare, a young man whom her
               mother had pushed her at ever since they were in school

               catches him sneaking around with another girl.  She tells him
               it is over, and her mother is furious with her for breaking up
               with Dael, as he comes from one of the richest families on
               Corellia, and she has already begun to plan the wedding.  She
               orders Bria to apologise to Dael, and for the first time in her

             - Bria hears about a revival being held by a Ylesian missionary.
               She is feeling down on herself and cut off from everyone, so
               she goes to the revival.  The Ylesian priest finishes his
               service with just a few seconds of Exultation, and it makes her
               feel good, like she belongs with those people, so she runs away
               and sells all her jewelry to buy passage on the next pilgrim
               ship to Ylesia.  She stops talking to her family after she
               travels there.
             - Palazidar, a Sacredot on Ylesia, falls asleep out of boredom
               while waiting for his turn to lead the services and prayers of

               make sure the job record of his alter ego, "Vykk Draygo," shows
               that he can command the highest wages.  It takes all of Han's
               savings, plus the proceeds from two dangerous heists that
