Rakir Banai lives in the frontier town of Wayfar on Tatooine. He is usually found at location (-5045, -6601). Rakir is the father of Kitster Banai and is concerned about a troublemaker being sent to interfer with the local mines run by his new boss, Drik.

Rakir has a number of missions for you.

Mission 1: Triggo Binz[]

Conversation with Rakir Banai[]

Rakir Banai: "Some troublemaker in Mos Espa is trying to undermine Drik's local mining business. This guy is a bad piece of work; Drik says he's accused of several murders. The troublemaker's sending a saboteur to blow up the mine. I want you to stop the saboteur."
PC: Who is the troublemaker, and why is he making trouble?
Rakir Banai: "Some guy who claims there are problems with ""working conditions"" at the mine. Drik says the guy is actually a mine owner, out to undermine the competition. Can I count on you to stop his saboteur?"
PC: Sure, I'll do it.
Rakir Banai: Right. I'm told the saboteur is a Twi'lek named Binz. I doubt he'll let himself be quietly arrested. Report back once you've resolved the matter.

You are given a waypoint to Triggo Binz (CL 4), a saboteur, who is coming in to undermine Drik's local mining business. When you return after killing him, Rakir gives you 1000 credits.

Conversation with Rakir Banai[]

Rakir Banai: Binz said Drik is a slaver? That's not the way I understand it. Except -- hmm. I need to look into that. Check back with me later.

Mission 2: Silm'an Voueen[]

Conversation with Rakir Banai[]

Rakir Banai: You may recall that saboteur who said my current boss, Drik Bandrik, is a slaver. I need to know if that's true. I don't like slavers. I'd like you to meet with a Bothan spy who has the truth. But don't tell Drik.
PC: """Current"" boss? What were you before you worked here?"
Rakir Banai: I had my own ship. Ran controlled medicines to Outer Rim worlds to bypass Corporate Sector surcharges. Lost my family in a Hutt pirate raid, and since then I've been wanting to get back at the Hutts. But right now, I need your decision.
PC: I'll do it. I'd like to know, as well.
Rakir Banai: All right. You're looking for a Bothan named Silm'an Voueen. She'll have a datadisc for you. Bring it back here.

The saboteur accused Drik of being a slaver and Rakir has asked you to meet with a Bothan spy who may know the truth. You get a waypoint to Silm'an Voueen; on the way you are waylaid by a pair of Trandosian slavers (CL 4).

Silm'an Voueen: Ee-yes, this data describes Drik Bandrik's slave operation. I enclose certain extra data about the troublemaker, Kitster. Perhaps ee-your employer will pay a bit more for this.

Return with the disk (she added some additional information about Kitster as well); Rakir gives you 2000cr.

Conversation with Rakir Banai[]

Rakir Banai: """Kitster""? Are you sure he said the troublemaker is named ""Kitster""? Oh no. Wait, maybe it's a coincidence. All right, I have to get some questions answered, fast. See me again later."

Mission 3: Keela Queller[]

Conversation with Rakir Banai[]

Rakir Banai: A spy has obtained records from a Mos Eisley repository owned by Jabba the Hutt. Jabba stole the records long ago from a rival Hutt crimelord. Now the Hutts are after my spy. Can you bring her here?
PC: What are these records?
Rakir Banai: They're records of Gardulla the Hutt's slave purchases and transfers. I don't know what the records say, but it's probably important, or the Hutts wouldn't be after them so soon.
PC: I'll do it.
Rakir Banai: Good. I've got a lot riding on this. Please hurry.

Another of Rakir's spies is being chased by a couple of Jabba's henchmen (CL 14); he has asked me to escort her to him.

Deela Quellor: Jabba stole these records long ago from a rival Hutt crimelord, Gardulla. Rakir will find them very interesting. Please take me to him.

After dispatching them, you bring her back to Rakir and he realizes that Drik has even sent him to attack his own son. He gives you 3000cr.

Conversation with Rakir Banai[]

Rakir Banai: It's true, then. Drik Bandrik has played me like a dejarik piece, sending me to attack my son. My own son! Friend, check with me again. I have more work for you.

Mission 4: Wizzel[]

Conversation with Rakir Banai[]

Rakir Banai: Drik's majordomo, Wizzel, holds my contract. I want you to get that contract back, by force. After I'm free, I'll look for my son, Kitster. What do you say?
PC: How will you find your son?
Rakir Banai: I'm sending out messengers to the various cities, based on the information you brought me before. I'm glad there are so few cities on this rock -- the search shouldn't take long. I hope. I can't remember the last time I hoped for something so much. Well, will you help me?
PC: I'll be more than happy to help!
Rakir Banai: Good. Wizzel will probably only let you have it over his dead body. That's fine with me.

Finally, Rakir asks you to get his contract back from Drik's majordomo, Wizzel. Wizzel (CL 16) has 2 mercenaries (CL 11) protecting him.

Wizzel: You don't leave Drik's service. He fires you. Permanently. Like this!

When you return with Rakir's contract, he gives you 4000cr and the schematic for a Shellfish Harvesting Tool.

Conversation with Rakir Banai[]

Rakir Banai: Thank you very much! Someone misordered this shellfish harvester, won't have much use for that here. You can take it in addition to your credit payment, hopefully you can find some use for it. I've sent out messengers to find my son. Take care of yourself!
