More Rebels, More Problems
T-38 and Top Lieutenant Nienye sprinted through the city’s streets, dogfights transpiring overhead as Qi’ra’s aerial support clashed with Enfys Nest’s band of Cloud Riders who zipped by on their speeder bikes.

T-38 was feeling the exact same, her thoughts distracted by the possibility of leaving Qi’ra to a grisly demise. But, Qi’ra was their leader, they had to obey her orders, and Qi’ra’s confidence gave them solace that she would prevail.
