The story starts with two characters. The female main character Audrey, a local law enforcer on the desert planet of Tatooine. She's visiting one of the nearby prison facilities (small only a few staff). Inside the compound, she checks on the different cells and does a routine walk around the place. She reaches the cell of the first main male character, Jorrel who was arrested by Audrey. They end up playing a gambling game in his cell, which Jorrel wins at which point he makes an advance on Audrey. He overpowers her and escapes, taking her clothes. She frees herself and does the walk of shame back to one of the staff offices.
There, shes confronted by a prison guard, Dorian, who demands to know what has happened and eventually takes advantage of her. When he realizes his acts have been recorded, he agrees to let her go, at which point she proceeds to head to the nearest starport in order to figure out where Jorrel fled to.
Jorrel has gone into hiding on the nearby moon called Lok
, which is inhabited and ruled by gangsters and criminals. At the spaceport there, Audrey meets a youngster called Phillips who offers her to find what she needs, for credits in return. She sends him on his way to find information about Jorrel's (the escapee) whereabouts.
Audrey herself dives into a local bar, immediately running into trouble. She gets talking with a spice dealer who is clearly enjoying Audrey's looks. A hooded figure nearby is noted. The spice dealer and Audrey gamble a bit, where Audrey tries to distract the man (called Reuben), by showing him some of her cleavage. Reuben the spice dealer has loaded dice though, and soon Audrey is losing badly, to the point where shes outta credits and needs to do a little work to pay her debts. They're interrupted by the hooded figure, who turns out to be an old friend of Audrey, named Aurelian. He disposes of the spice dealer and Audrey updates Aurelian on the situation. The informer youngster Phillips stops by and directs Audrey and Aurelian to a shop, where another person may have more information.
Audrey and Aurelian head to the shop, owned by Darten, who sells information. They try to make a deal, but can't agree on a price. Aurelian takes off, when Darten offers Audrey for her to pay in a different fashion. After this, Darten directs Audrey to a residential area, essentially a slum.
Once there, she tries to get a small apartment in order to keep an eye on the building she was directed to, but also to have a place to stay. A while goes by where she finds no further lead, until she finds out about someone else who is trying to locate Jorrel (the escapee). They discuss and talk for a while, but the new lead (Zohn) doesnt seem to be able to offer her much help.
When she leaves to return to her place, she gets a call from her youngster informer Phillips who has spotted Jorrel. After some disagreements about credits, Phillips leads her to the place where Jorrel supposedly is. She finds an unlocked front door and enters with her blaster drawn. Inside, she finds both Jorrel and Aurelian. Aurelian is in the process of torturing Jorrel, at which point Audrey shoots Aurelian. She frees Jorrel and takes him back to her newly rented apartment.
At this point, the story does not proceed any further.

Thats about it for the characters, plenty of them!
What I want for this story is mostly to have it move forward at this stage. There's lots going on and there'd be no shortage in events that could follow up. Its very malleable though, and can head into any direction. My character could run into nearly anything, be pulled off course, lead to another planet, etc. There's quite a few characters listed, some may remain in the past whilst other could make another appearance if the situation calls for it. I'm really open about where this could lead, so if you have suggestions please let me know!
