Synopsis:
Xizor, the leader of the Black Sun organization, has been destroyed, and Guri, a human replica droid and Xizor's personal assassin, is left wondering what her future will hold now that she no longer has anyone to answer to. Throughout the ongoing struggle for underworld supremacy, Guri endeavors to uncover hints of her human side -- if it even exists. Her search first takes her to the far side of the Rim looking for droid programming genius Massad Thrumble, in the hope that he can alter her programming.
Human replica droid Guri continues her quest to discover just how human she really is. She braves the dangers of the tropical planet Murninkam looking for the surgical droid known as Doc, who has been abducted by Spinda Caveel, a brilliant but more-than-slightly mad scientist, and his deadly cohorts, the Pikkel Sisters. Meanwhile, bounty hunter Kar Yang is hot on the trail of Guri at the request of the shadowy Azool, who wants Guri for reasons that will finally become clear.
Human replica droid Guri has located the only one potentially capable of altering her assassin-driven programming, the surgical droid known as Doc. But now she's being pursued by a bounty hunter, Kar Yang. Savan, working in disguise as a human female, is trying to secure her hold on the Black Sun organization -- and realizes that Guri is the key. Luke, Han, and Leia, who are meeting with Savan on Coruscant in order to work out a peaceful end to the tumultuous turnover in Black Sun, have no idea who she really is, though.
Now that Guri has found Doc, and the de-droiding procedure has been started, the search is on for Guri. Will Spinda Caveel, the Pikkel Sisters, Savan, or Han, Luke, and Leia be the first to find Guri and Doc? Will Doc be able to finish the humanizing procedure on Guri before they are found? Just as we think things are going well, Luke gets a "feeling," and Leia discovers the truth behind Savan.
Guri, the most wanted droid in the galaxy awakens from surgery. Doc and Thrumble stand by to see if the surgery successfully removed the bad memories of Black Sun. Meanwhile, our gang is on the way to collect Guri and bring her to trial. What they don't know is that Savan and her thugs are there to capture Guri for themselves.
