Star Wars: Predators
The jovial captain who crews the Honey Badger. Likes Pancakes.
Kay’daq is jovial to the nth degree, even when things look dire he’s got a grin on his face. He is not very vocal about his past. Although he is the highest ranking officer aboard the Honey Badger, his role is one of support, he follows the lead of Predator Squadron.
Kay’daq served with distinction at the Battle of New Alderaan where he was seriously injured in defence of the Honey Badger. A group of Storm-Commandos retreated from the main battle outside into the ship, Kay’daq rushed to shut down the main power in the engine room in order to prevent the commandos from utilising the ship’s weapons against Predator Squadron and the Alliance infantry outside. He was rushed by 2 commandos and despite taking one down, was left with a punctured lung.
Along with Deck Officer Neathe, he was separated from Predator Squadron in the evacuation of New Alderaan that immediately followed the skirmish with the Storm-Commandos. He was last seen being taken to New Alderaan’s medical centre.
After about 6 weeks spent in recovery, Kay’daq returned to active duty and resumed his position working alongside Predator Squadron. Battered, scarred and bearing a cane, it seems as though his personality has not suffered for his injuries.
On Nar Shaddar he requested a personal day, the first of his career. He did not return to the Honey Badger that night, but was located the next day at a Bothan temple for fallen comrades.
Kay’Daq’s temple visits and some of his past is recounted in Ghosts of the Past.
Kay’daq’s Recomended Pancake Recipe
100g plain flour
300ml semi-skimmed milk
1 tbsp sunflower oil or vegetable, plus extra for frying
- Put the flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre.
- Crack the eggs into the middle, then pour in about 50ml milk and 1 tbsp oil.
- Whisk until you have a smooth, thick paste. Add a little more milk if it is too stiff to beat.
- Add a good splash of milk and whisk to loosen the thick batter. While still whisking, pour in a steady stream of the remaining milk. Continue pouring and whisking until batter is of the proper consistency.
- Heat the pan over a moderate heat, then wipe it with oiled kitchen paper. Ladle some batter into the pan, tilting the pan to move the mixture around for a thin and even layer.
- Hold the pan handle, ease a fish slice under the pancake, then quickly lift and flip it over (or if you’re really fancy, use the Force). Make sure the pancake is lying flat against base of the pan with no folds, then cook for another 30 secs before turning out onto a warm plate.
- Continue with the rest of the batter, serving them as you cook or stack onto a plate.
