    Wasn't he the one that split off to the right and lead them back to the surface?

    Sounds like it. I was never sure myself.

    "Squeaky, break out the Whyren's!...Please."

    An A-Wing, and splitting off to the right. Thanks, folks. That'll be something to look for next time I see RotJ.

    Now, if I could just find Kapetanovic's illustration of Runt. I'm reading through the Wraith books again, playing at putting faces to the characters, and I keep getting hung up on Runt. Haven't quite decided how Lara looks, either. Or Phanan.

    Myn Donos, I'm finding, looks a lot like Robert Kent.

    Robert Kent, as he appeared in "Shoot to Kill" (1947).

    Blue suit next to Wedge. Has to be since he was 2nd in command. That's how I cam to my conclusion, anyway.

    I always have trouble with pics of Wes Janson because in the last X-Wing series book he is said to look 'preternaturally young'. :p

    I actually found one of those a while ago. And made a motivational poster:

    Getting back to this, horribly late...

    The snoot though. Could that snoot fit inside a stormtrooper helmet? As I believe it had to in "Iron Fist" and "Mercy Kill".

    ( Yes, it would be just like the girl to get overly technical and drain the fun out of the whole thing. )

    *whistles...*

    *...as best she can with gold-plated, immovable lips*

    Hey! I found Kapetanovic's Runt!

    ( And here's the link to the larger original in the Wayback Machine. )

    ( Ditto. )

    Still a snoot. But the latter image warms the ( tin ) heart of this fangirl.

    Outside, something odd was going on at the mess and patio. The thermal blanket normally used as an awning over the mess picture viewport had been lowered, indicating that it was closed, and all the patio's chairs and tables had been drawn aside. A hand-painted sign decorated the main door into the module: MESS CLOSED BY ORDER OF THE PIRATE RUNT.

    Runt now stood in the middle of the newly open space, goggles over his eyes as he used one of the maintenance crew's backpack paint sprayers to put a layer of matte-green paint down on the stone floor.

    Wedge wandered over and watched for a while as Runt finished transforming a large oval of gray stone into a green surface. Then Runt removed his goggles and switched off the sprayer.

    Wedge asked, "Runt, what are you doing?"

    Runt looked at him levelly. "Painting, sir."

    "Ah. Why?"

    "For the ritual, sir."

    He looks much better when he's not a horse.

    Gottcha. Very good reason to paint the floor green I suppose. What function did green paint on the floor serve?

    ... Actually, I think that was a different party. Wedge's 'Mutiny of Anonimity', I believe. This one was Runt's 'Raising of Morale' dance after a couple of deaths had the squad feeling pretty poopy.

    RIP Aaron Aliston, Mercy Kill was your last X Wing book, there will never be another from you now. :(

    Extremely depressing thought, that.

    I really hoped that Mercy Kill would be the resurrection and we'd get a whole new set of stories from Aaron..... I wonder if he was working on anything, his passing was so sudden :(

    At the very least, I'm sure he had ideas of where to go next.
