"She was here just a minute ago," Riebe said, looking puzzled. Then she shrugged. "I wouldn't worry about her. She can take care of herself very well. If I know anything about her, she'll be back in a minute."

"Rustic is gone," Alyssa told Riebe. "Someone got him with knockout gas."
"Meet a battle droid," Riebe muttered. "More like fight them for sport." Raising her voice, she said, "Alyssa's back. Rustic has been captured. I have a hunch that he's in some arena somewhere 'meeting' a few battle droids... for sport."
