The day of their senior prom, Cassian Andor freaked out and disappeared from his life in Grosse Point, Michigan. He disappeared, leaving his high school sweetheart, Jyn Erso, abandoned in a prom dress waiting for a date who would never come.
During the ten years he’s been gone, he joined the military before becoming a hitman for hire. It’s not all roses, though. He is in therapy with psychiatrist, Dr. Îmwe to deal with his anxiety about his job and his long-lost love.
Then maybe it’s fate or something: there’s a job offer for a hit job back in his hometown where Jyn still lives and works as a radio DJ. It just happens that this job also coincides with his 10-year high school reunion. His friend and assistant, Bodhi, convinces him to go.
He seeks out Jyn. But is she happy to see him? Angry to see him? Maybe both. Either way, the sparks are still there.
There is a just one problem, though. The hit job? Well, the target just happens to by Jyn’s father, Galen. Whoops.
When I left, I joined the army, and when I took the service exam, my psych profile fit a certain… moral flexibility would be the only way to describe it. I was loaned out to a CIA Sponsored Program and we sort of found each other. That’s the way it works. In the beginning it matters, of course, that you have something to hang on to, you know? A specific ideology to defend. I mean, “taming unchecked aggression”, that was my personal favorite. Other guys like “live free or die”, but you know, you get the idea. But that’s all bullshit, and I know that now. That’s all bullshit. You do it because you were trained to do it, you were encouraged to do it and ultimately, you know, you… get to like it.
