I can’t believe how lost I am. Last mission I spent negotiating, salvaging, tinkering, and turned in only a minimal bounty. This mission was supposed to be simple but our ship was damaged in a plasma storm so when we landed I dutifully followed my assigned role as the mechanic and focused only on fixing the ship. I even offered my services as a mechanic to get some extra creds. Maybe I should leave this group. I am becoming lost in this role and my failure to focus on the hunt nearly cost us.
While I was repairing the ship I was told by the rest of the crew they were going to meet with someone. I wasn’t really paying attention as I was focused on repairing the ship quickly to continue our mission. While I was installing a new hyperdrive transducer cooling coil coolant regulator I suddenly realized the name of the being they were to meet was a dangerous bounty. I can’t believe I didn’t realize it right away. I’m supposed to be a bounty hunter! Instead I’m turning into a grease mynok. I commed the crew in time to take the bounty alive but not before they entered into an ambush. It was my failure. I put them all into needless danger. The Bothan and I raced to reinforce them and luckily I arrived in time to stabilize the wounded bounty and acquire it for transport. It was an old Separatist war criminal and I actually took down an old Clone War battle droid, if you can believe that. But we were engaged with various hostile wildlife and had to bug out. I saved as many locals as I could but many perished in the chaos.
I failed in so many ways, mentor. I didn’t connect the name to the bounty until too late. I left my duty on the ship and didn’t complete repairs so I could attempt to acquire the bounty, I didn’t even find the parts we needed; the Bothan found them right away. And I put the safety of the locals above my duty and mission. I am losing my purpose as to why I left home. Too many clan mates said I was too young to venture into the outer rim. You believed in me, but I no longer believe in myself. I’ve caught a few bounties but could I really have done it without the help of the crew? Am I ready to bring honor to our clan or am I just trying to bring honor to myself? I need counsel, mentor. Please advise.
