    I've seen both of them! And in fact, killed one of them.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Zuckuss needs an update.

    When was he committed? Where on Coruscant was he committed? How long was he committed? And, most importantly, why was he committed?

    Why was he committed? You did see his attempt at late night tv, right? that was reason enough right there.

    Zuckuss is a system, not a man.

    Why would Boba hunt him down?

    We don't know what he did after he joined the rebels.

    I don't recall the imps using a lot BH anyway, they had agents, Emperor's Hands, Inquisitors. No reason to outsource it to a BH with his own code.

    Well, despite Piett saying that the Empire didn't need bounty hunters, the EU is so enamored of them that the Empire uses them all the time... for no good reason.

    Piett said that because he's actually a super-secret part-time undercover badass who goes on personal missions for the Emperor assassinating high-profile targets. Bounty hunters are not only scum in his eyes, but he inwardly chafes every time he sees the Empire's precious credits being flung at lowly thugs. Especially fat guys in toilet paper and schizophrenic bugs.

    This needs to be a comic. Or a short story. Or a TV series.

    Perhaps an Agent of the Empire arc. With Cross, once he discovers the truth, either a) hugely jealous of Piett or b) behaving like a dippy fangirl.

    Well, wasn't Piett's first job organizing and cleaning up his local area from scum and villiany before being promoted up the chain? Piett probably sees all fringe types as scum.

    The local Moff placed a Bounty on his head, precisely because he would have wanted him hunted down. The Empire takes betrayal rather personal and despite what a Navy officer might think Bounty Hunters tend to get things done. ;)

    I'm hoping Mon Mothma's entry or however they are working it in the new version of the guide speaks somewhar about her kids, Lieda and that random trooper from Hoth. It seems odd for such an important character we know really nothing about her kids (like who their father was).

    I'm also not sure if this will be applicable in the new guide, but I hope they decide that for a few of the group entries to discuss families as opposed to groups (Podracers, Old Jedi High Council, etc) because that way you could feasibly work in much greatness about some of the SW dynasties. Yes Fels, Tainers and Antilleses(?) I am looking at you. This would also be a great opportunity to give us updated (or indeed any) artwork for people like Valin and Jysella, Syal and Myri, Doran and Jesmin, and any of Jag's siblings.

    I don't know if this is on the cards, just a thought.

    Oh, and Cronal needs a full-fledged entry. He is essential damnit! I need canon confirmation that he is indeed White Eyes and is playing the One Sith for some Sorcerer of Rhand endgame.

    Preliminary cover on display at NYCC. It looks like the title will be The Essential Characters.
