It's hardly unusual for parents to want to see their children develop an interest in the family trade, nor for such parents to feel some level of disappointment when their hopes aren't fulfilled. So it was when Thera Markon, daughter to notable bounty hunter Crysta Markon, decided to take up smuggling.
Thera's life of small-time scores may not be the most ambitious, but it's a level of danger and income she was accustomed to‒until her mother lost her life because of her thieving. If nothing else, Crysta's intervention and sacrifice may signal to Thera that her mother wasn't entirely disapproving of her life choices in the end. Whether or not Thera's neurotic nature would allow such a notion to soothe her is another matter.
