Instinctively Plakhtor's hands move subtly beneath the table, as he looks ready for trouble.

As the group of newcomers lower their voices and start talking to one another, rather than the whole bar, Brek's shoulders slump slightly as his attention returns to his drink. Moments later his muscles tense slightly as he senses someone approaching a second before Rogue sits next to him. He relaxes only slightly slightly when she speaks, and replies without looking away from his drink, "It's also not polite to engage in conversation loud enough for everyone in the room to hear."

He lifts his eyes from his glass and looks at Rogue, "I ain't lookin for trouble, lady, but if you intend to bring it, you'll be sorry. Wouldn't want to add another problem to your current pile, ya know?" He glances back towards the other in the booth and returns his gaze to the woman next to him, "I take it you and your friends are new here..."

Not that new, but as it seems, it may be a while until we can take off this rock. She gives him a smile. Nothing fake, probably more sincere than what she may have wanted.
And Yes, I do intend on bringing you trouble. A lot of it as a matter of fact.
She pauses to see his reaction. But I do hope I won't be sorry. Put it this way, we'd love to hire your gun, but we'll probably need the arm that carries it. So if you don't know what to do with yourself these days, we'll bring you some action, and maybe a small percentage of what we make out of it, all you have to do is let the ones that brings troule feel sorry for themselves. What'd you say Cowboy?
She catches the attention of the barman to bring her a drink. Whatever Brek is drinking.

Brek's right eyebrow arches at the woman's comment and his shoulders turn to angle his body more squarely to hers, a faint darkness falling across his eyes.

Brek's posture relaxes as Rogue's intent is unfolded, and his shoulders turn back to facing the bar and his drink. He fingers the glass absently as he thinks, a trace of a grin appearing on his face. "You have an interesting way about you, I'll give you that." He looks up at the woman, his grin widening into something approaching a smile, "I will need pay, whether you guys pull in extra cash or not. I have to eat, and blaster packs and repairs ain't cheap." He's quiet a moment before he continues, "But we may be able to work something out."

Rogue's smile widens with a sense of accomplishement.
Well, for hard currency you'll have to talk with the Hammerhead, over there. He still owes me my last two months' salary so you better bargain well. I'll put my two cents for you though, if it helps.
I guess we should all stick with a percentage of the pot, whatever game we're into. Anyway. Why don't you come with me so I can make the introduction.
By the way, I'm Malicia. But everybody calls me Rogue.

She presents her hand, ready to be shaked.

At the mention of the Ithorian, Brek looks over to the table, then back to the woman. He shakes her hand, "Brek." He stands to follow her back to the table, stopping and grabbing his glass before continuing.

Rogue brings Brek at their booth.
Guys, this is Brek. She points at the Ithorian. Here is Damor, we used to call him Captain but I think it's no longuer adequate, right Boss? . Shorty over here is named Plakhtor. He doesn't speak much but he's cool, well... I guess he is. And the kid over here is Hov. He's the one who's gonna bring you the trouble you need. He's also known for gambling away things that he doesn't own, so if one day you find yourselve the slave boy of Fatty the Hutt, just don't be surprised, Hov would have just sold you at a Sabacc table.
She puts an hand on Brek biceps. Guys, that's all the muscle we need I assume. She grins at Brek and adds: Not too bad...

Plakhtor nods, and stares into Brek's eyes, a stare that has sent a chill down many beings spine. Brek knows from just the look that Plakhtor is a trained warrior, and from the looks of his muscles, and unarmed specialist.

Brek looks over those assembled with an appraising eye, lingering a moment on the one called Plakhtor before shifting back to Damor, all but ignoring Rogue's last comment, "Well, looks like we may have ourselves a deal to make. I can help you out, and your friend here has suggested a percentage cut of whatever is brought in. That sounds fine... but, I'm going to have to insist on a minimum guarantee; this is my job after all. Let's say, a hundred creds per week, it's a fairly low rate, but your little group seems to be in a bit of a tight situation. I need money, you don't seem to have much of it, so I can cut a deal." Brek stands a little straighter, resting his glass on the table, he folds his arms over his chest, awaiting Damor's response.

Well, I'll let you gentlemen deal with the details. Brek, a pleasure to have you among us. Now if you'll excuse me, I must run to the lady's.

Without waiting Rogue heads toward the previousl inspected room. Those drinks were surely bad for her.

Hov smirks softly at the aforementioned dig at his character.
We can get into the nitty gritty of the numbers when we've got a job to look forward to. In the meantime...we need to figure out what job we're going to look forward to. Any suggestions for work around here? Or a card game, I'm always up for a card game.
Hov grins at his suggestion of another shot at gambling.

Brek's expression doesn't change as Hov speaks, "Most work I've been doing on this rock has been as freelance security, if you take my meaning. This is a hole of a backwater, it's rough... not everyone can or wants to keep themselves safe. It's not consistent or particularly well paying but it's been keeping me alive. Other than that, folks sign up for manual work on the farms, take advantage of the locals, or any number of other tasks. As for card games..." Brek's expression turns distant for a moment as he trails off, his hand moving to pat his pockets. His jaw clenches and his eyes grow dark as he turns his head towards the washrooms. He continues speaking and surveys the rest of the bar briefly before returning his eyes to the washroom doors, "I don't really play myself, but there are several card houses in each port, but you generally need cash to get you started..."

Rogue makes her way back innocently from the washroom.
Hey boys. Did you finally came up with an understanding? she says as she squeezes her way into the booth.
She looks at Brek and give him a brief shy smile, that fades out as she notices the darkness in his look.

Brek watches Rogue return to the table. When she sits he simply extends his hand towards her and flicks his fingers in that hand it over sort of gesture.

Rogue first wants to play the innocent look as she would usually do and begins with an interrogative
- What?...
But before Brek can say anything, she realizes it wouldn't help trying to get out of this one; she adds:
Fine! She looks guilty and upset that she got caught. As she hands back Brek's wallet she tries to give him a sweet look.
Lucky I found it, ain't you? she bluffs, knowing nobody would buy it, but hopefully would ease the tension.
Can I get anyone another drink?
