In episode 2, it’s revealed that the attacker hails from a gaggle generally known as the Order of the Evening Wind. Right here is every part it’s good to learn about them. SPOILERS AHEAD.
What Is the Order of the Evening Wind?
The Order of the Evening Wind will not be an especially clandestine group. Those that are energetic on the planet of crime appear to concentrate on them. When Fennec brings the lone surviving attacker in entrance of Boba, 8D8 explains that their prisoner is a member of the Order of the Evening Wind. They’re assassins for rent, identified for being efficient and costly. Though Boba appears intrigued, Fennec isn’t in any respect impressed. And that is sensible, on condition that she is an elite murderer herself, and by all indications, a significantly better one.
When the specter of execution doesn’t work, Fennec drops the Evening Wind member into the cell under, claiming there’s a rancor there.
