Marcus, I'm thinking that we should modify the script so that I meed you on Batuu instead of Jedha. I've read the trade paperback "The Ashes of Jedha", and the moon is currently a rather hellish place to be. Unless you still want to do that; the TPB would contain the reason why Luke Halcyon was on Jedha: His pilgrimage to the Temple of the Central Isotoper at the edge of the blast crater, where one stands at the edge and stares down into the abyss. So besides you finding Halcyon's holocron there, we could also incorporate a plot where Marcus fights off an Ochi of Bestoon type Sith Assassin who also is searching for the Halcyon holocron.

But Batuu has some ancient ruins that Halcyon could have been exploring/investigating, and that's where you could find the holocron–and the Sith assassin. Also, Batuu seems a lot like Safehaven: "Squat, round homes made of stone and dried clay were widely spaced in an immense clearing ringed by the huge trees and spires. Fields of grain waved in the breeze, careful lines of vegetables sprouted inside nicely kept fences, fruit trees and bushes flourished, and herds of woolly beasts milled about in pastures, grazing and making a soft whuffling gruff noise as little girls and boys watched over them, half asleep and cradling shepherd's crooks. Farther away, a blue river twinkled among the green, and beyond it, a larger settlement spread out, big enough to make this one look quaint and rustic

. . . "This picturesque settlement was just the sort of place the First Order would destroy without a second thought, a place with nothing they wanted but everything they hated."

I could envision a pretty good scenario where Marcus finds himself passing such a place on his way to Black Spire Outpost, with the native Batuuans somewhat unnerved by this goggle-clad offworlder who has suddenly stopped and stared at them. But Marcus can prove his good intentions by using his newly accquired ranching skills to round up some of the settlement's livestock that has suddenly gone astray/stampeded.

Note to Marcus: According to information in Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire, the First Order generally doesn't take on non-humans. So in the aftermath of the Empire/F.O. attack on Safehaven, Marcus would see that nearly all of his alien neighbors and settlers have been done massacreed.

More info for Marcus: The Empire-now-morphing-into-First Order's modus operandi when raiding planets:

1) TIE strafing and bombing runs, followed by,

2) Landing of troops in assault transports, wielding blasters, flamethrowers, and laser axes, who then proceed to,

3) Scan for life,

4) Hunt down whatever they find,

5) Return to base of operations with their prizes, leaving nothing living behind.
