The Mandalorian Wars have come to a swift yet bloody conclusion, and an uneasy peace has come to settle over the galaxy. The returning soldiers and Jedi are hailed as saviors of the Republic, while what remains of the Mandalorian resistance seems to have all but vanished.

Nowhere in the galaxy is the ugly aftermath of war more blatant than it is on Nar Shaddaa. Refugees flood the Smuggler’s Moon by the thousands, most of whom are taken as slaves by either the Hutts or the Exchange.
