Kodo had received a message from higher-ups in the Republic army, instructing him to head to the underground starport on Imperial-dictated Orion IV. Here he met a greedy bounty hunter, Kaheed Mitrus, his assigned partner. They were to head to Orion I, where Kodo's master's killer, Darth Malgus, had been seen. They flew to Orion I, and once reaching orbit, were stopped by Imperial forces. The Republic had provided new identities, and dressing like good little Imperials, they welcomed the guards onto their ship. Then Kaheed fired his blaster arm into one, and Kodo used the Force to lock one in the closet. Unfortunately, their identities were revealed, which ensued a hectic space battle. This was a great opportunity to try out West End Games' starship battle mechanics, which proved perfectly fun and exceptionally chaotic. After a lot of blaster fire, the Imperial ship was destroyed, and the characters plummeted toward Caventor City on the surface. Luckily, they landed nearby and simply walked to the city, stashing the unconscious Imperial in an alleyway. They were told Malgus was approaching the Cloud Cover nightclub. After a bit of bribery, they made their way inside, blending with the crowd, until Malgus and his apprentice entered. Malgus commanded Kodo to make himself known, yet Kodo hid. So Malgus took a hostage and threatened the Jedi. Kodo appeared, backed by Kaheed, and Malgus killed the hostage anyway. Then Malgus began toying with the two, throwing them around the club and occasionally dodging their poorly made attacks. His apprentice then engaged in fierce lightsaber combat with Kodo. This was an opening for Kaheed. The bounty hunter fired his blaster rifle at Malgus, who retaliated by throwing Kaheed to the ground. Kaheed, a master sniper, then lodged a blaster bolt in the Sith's stomach. Kodo pushed away the apprentice and went to finish him. Yet then the apprentice used Force Lightning, and with Kodo's last embers of consicousness, he saw the two Sith escape.
