- ―Bannon explains what happened to his rescuers
During the Galactic Civil War between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire, the Human boy Jek Bannon worked for the Five Brothers Resort and Casino, an establishment on the Centerpoint space station. At the age of fifteen he worked under the Twi'lek Sura as part of the Five Brothers' operations on Conical Six, one of the the space stations' Southern Conical Mountains. Shortly after Five Brothers' obtained the rights to exclusive use of the mountain, Sura sent Bannon up the mountain to capture a number of holographic images for commercial use by the casino. The boy brought a bag of equipment with him, but after encountering the extreme heat generated by Glowpoint, an artificial sun near the mountain, he passed out in a cave while trying to put on a rebreather.
A group of spacers hired by the casino to clear out a vynock infestation on the mountain later found Bannon, and after the group were attacked by several vynocks, he awoke and thanked them before contacting Sura to arrange pick up. The group, one of whom collected Bannon's bag, then brought the boy with them to the mountains summit where an airspeeder collected them all. Thankful to see him safe Sura paid the spacers an extra 300 for his rescue and the return of the equipment.
Personality and traitsEdit
When found by spacers he was extremely thankful, as was Sura who had worried for the young boy when he didn't return.

Behind the scenesEdit
Bannon first appeared as a character in the adventure module "Conical Six Summit", one of several modules included in the Suns of Fortune sourcebook for the Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars: Edge of the Empire roleplaying system. The book, which was released in 2014, gave several reasons why the players might be climbing the mountain when they find Bannon, although hunting vynocks is the reason used throughout the adventure text and so this article assumes this to be the case.
