Bubo Telik was a happy Herglic. Owner of his own ship, free to ply the trade routes, a friend in every port. He rarely had to use his immense bulk to get his way – when he did, word got around fast – and even his illicit deals were usually closed with a hearty laugh and a round of drinks.
But on one fateful day, in a suspiciously well-kept cantina, his genetic drive to games of chance (normally kept in check by an iron will and a healthy sense for when he was being conned) was too strong… and so was the hand of the crime lord who was playing against him. Bubo lost, badly – so badly that he was forced to take a loan against his beloved ship, at highly unfavorable terms.
