Via flashbacks we see that they met within the wreckage of a ship that crashed on Kenari when Cassian, or Kassa (Antonio Viña) as he’s recognized by his individuals, was a younger boy.
Kassa goes along with his pals to analyze the crash, however after certainly one of them dies by the hands of an injured officer, he stays behind. Kassa explores the ship, rising extra indignant as he goes on. He ultimately stops within the bridge to take out his anger on the management panels, doing his finest to smash the consoles to items.

Not wanting to depart the kid on the mercy of the Republic, who she has a transparent distaste for, Maarva decides to deliver Kassa with them regardless of Clem’s assurances that “he’s acquired individuals right here.”
Nevertheless, although Maarva replies to Clem saying, “Yeah, individuals who’ve simply killed a Republic officer, it’ll be open season right here the second that frigate lands,” seemingly referring to the person who the Kenari youngsters took out after he killed their chief, the officers on board and within the wreckage of the ship, together with the man taken out by their darts, clearly have the hexagonal Separatist emblem versus the extra gear-like Republic insignia. Whether or not this line, or the inclusion of the Separatist emblem somewhat than the Republic one, are a mistake or continuity error is but to be decided, however both means these flashbacks present what number of planets within the Mid and Outer Rims have been handled by the bigger powers of the galaxy. It finally doesn’t matter who crash lands on Kenari, however as a substitute how they deal with the individuals there.
