"Right then, what's the plan?"
Thane Krios scowled inwardly at his new companion. The gruff human leaned casually against the alley wall, arms crossed defensively. There wasn't a shred of grace or subtlety about him, the Drell thought. A mass of muscle, armour and scars, Zaeed Massani was the definition of a modern mercenary. Simple, dangerous, and effective. Hardly an artist, Thane mused.
"I asked you a question, Drell." Zaeed fixed his one good eye on the back of the assassins head.
