Yes. I forged my Mandalorian Armor when I obtained from Jodo Kast. I created to my own liking. Fixed the blaster scorch marks. I weatherized so that my targets has no idea I am a Chiss. I am not a Mandalorian. But no one on my mission knew it was me.
My group knows that I, Thrawn, obtained the armor from Jodo Kast, who is not Mandalorian. I gave him a better reputation than his bravado. How do I know this? My group, SWAG77, spoke to the author Michael Stackpole on Instagram, recently.
At some point, my group will write a headcanon or fan-fiction.
On Instagram, a Grand Admiral Thrawn fan poses a very interesting question from the Legends canon book, The Outbound Flight, see below:
Disney Lucasfilm uses RK-3 blaster pistols for Thrawn as shown in this current canon images. RK-3 blaster pistols were built by a fictional company, Merr-Sonn Munitions, Inc. weapons for the Imperial Military.
Why is this blaster pistol important for this discussion? What would drive this aspect of Thrawn’s story? Because the RK-3 blaster pistol at this time is stronger than the current Chiss weapons, such as the Charrics.
When did Thrawn get his blaster-pistol? Before he joined the Empire (~11 BBY), or at the time he became a Grand Admiral (~3-4 BBY)?
