Wiley the Ewok, one of 42 grandchildren of the ewok priestess from the 1980’s “Ewok Adventure” made-for-TV-movies, left Endor. His grandmother the priestess had a Force-related dream that her little descendant had a destiny among the stars, and further, that one day that destiny would save the ewok people from a disaster.
Although ewok society does not normally use money, occasionally there is need to deal with offworlders from the larger galaxy who do. So, the clan has some credsticks stashed away in a box in an elder’s home for unforeseen needs to deal with offworlders.
Wiley’s clan purchased a trip for him offworld. Although the ewoks themselves do not keep devices around capable of galactic communication, nearby to their village lives a fringer hermit who has a communications array for emergencies. The old fart just moved to Endor to be a hermit and be left alone, but is at peace with his ewok neighbors. The clan was able to use the hermit’s communications device to contact the wider galaxy and arrange transportation for Wiley.
Wiley’s transport was to take him to the planet Boondock (a GM-made-up planet). Boondock at least has a town and a spaceport, which is more than Endor has. Smiley Bob, a pilot who drops off supplies to a small number of hermits who live as recluses from society on Endor, took some money to allow Wiley to be his passenger to the Wheel. The Wheel is a space station from the 1980’s Star Wars Marvel comics.
At the Wheel, Wiley had a layover before taking a commercial flight to Boondock. The Wheel is an unsavory place. Being possessed of its own hyperdrive, the Wheel can move from place to place in the galaxy. It has never claimed allegiance to any government: not the Empire, not the Old or New Republics, not the Galactic Alliance, not the Hutt Cartel, no one. Thus, it operates businesses that people wish to conduct outside the law. It’s pretty shady and sketchy.
When Wiley saw a human kid about to be torn apart by money shark thug enforcers, he intervened. He was about cut in twain by a Gamorrean vibro-battle-axe when Jedi Knight Dorsk84 showed up to assist.
After the encounter was over and everyone was safe, Dorsk84 and Wiley escorted the poor human kid to a ship that could take him far away from those who would do him harm. It turned out the kid was a former spice dealer and addict. The only way to escape his addiction was to stop being around spice altogether. That meant, of course, that he had to stop selling it. Without selling it, he did not have sufficient income to pay what he owed to the crime boss that both he and the enforcer thugs worked for. Enough time had passed that the crime boss had to collect, one way or another.
In conversation with Dorsk84, Wiley learned that Dorsk84 was also headed for Boondock. Dorsk84 had been tasked by the Jedi Counsel with retrieving the remains and possessions of a deceased Jedi Master named Cassandra who had lived on Boondock.
Dorsk84, a Khommite Jedi, and Wiley the Ewok, took a commercial flight from the Wheel to Boondock.
