After turning in another bounty, Kenix Kil is yet again offered the reward on Kir Kanos – and once again, refuses. His employer does not seem surprised, and offers him a bounty on a cyborg pirate hiding in a fortress. As Kil leaves, the employer contacts the pirate and informs him that Kil is coming. Kenix runs into a battle over the fortress, with starfighters herding him toward the fortress’ docking bay. It was a trap – but who and why? He decides to use the direct approach and flies into the hangar. It turns out his enemy, who knows full well that Kenix Kil is Kir Kanos – is the supposedly dead ex-Rebel Massimo. Ironically, he was saved from being burned to death from the Zanibar by a stray shot from Kanos himself. However, in the process, he was disfigured and forced to be cyborged. And now having gone totally mad, he is used the aid of a corrupt official to kill Kanos. He could care less about the bounty – “I want your head on a pike!!” 
Kir outwits the battle droids, which end up destroying each other. Massimo begs him not to kill him, but Kir does not listen -- he buries his force pike in Massimo’s chest. He did not care about Massimo wanting revenge on him. But betraying his commanding officer…”Well, you said it yourself, Massimo…’this is not about money.’ This is about honour.” 

This story occurs approximately 11 years after the Battle of Yavin.
