A deadly arqet rampages through
the undercity crowds on Nar Shaddaa.
KO HENTOTA, NAR SHADDAA - An illegal performance by the underground Circus Horrificus ended in chaos yesterday in the lower levels of Nar Shaddaa as a new, exotic beast showcased by the traveling troupe escaped and ran amuck. While performing within an immense ventilation nexus beneath the district of Ko Hentota, the Circus Horrificus revealed an agitated arqet, a creature native to Pellastrallus, to an appreciative crowd. Cheers of joy quickly became shrieks of terror as the arqet escaped its bonds and gored 12 audience members. Attempts to stun the beast proved fruitless, and the arqet fled into the ventilation grid. At least five other deaths have been attributed to the escaped creature, but since many of the lower levels have never been explored, it is impossible to determine the extent of the damage. The surviving members of the Circus have fled. Nar Shaddaa authorities are not expected to pursue.
