Moloch carries a curious scepter topped with a clublike head adorned with carvings of writhing scrumrats – an emblem of the Grindalid enforcer’s belief in an afterlife filled with riches. Moloch’s staff is an object of morbid fascination for many scrumrats, who discuss its origins and significance in hushed tones.
Syke competes with Rebolt for Moloch’s favor, with each seeking to impress the Grindalid enforcer by showing how tough and mean he can be. Syke is better than Rebolt at handling the White Worms’ pack of Corellian hounds, and genuinely fond of the beasts – a rare example of affection in the pitiless sewers of Coronet City.
Lead Transport Security Officer Falthina Sharest works at Coronet Spaceport, where she has seen her workday expand without a corresponding increase in pay. Sharest makes up the difference by seizing contraband from foolish or unlucky travelers for surreptitious resale. When offered a vial of valuable coaxium, Sharest sees the chance for a big payday.
A veteran Imperial, Bolandin has long regarded Corporal Han Solo as a troublemaker with a big mouth – and the mudtroopers battling on Mimban have trouble enough as it is. When Solo is turned over to Bolandin as a deserter, he orders stormtroopers to throw him in with “the Beast” – a Wookiee prisoner held in a makeshift prison.
The Empire supplies the Pykes with prisoners to work in Kessel’s infamous mines – a penalty that is usually a death sentence given the planet’s harsh conditions and lax safety standards. Kessel miners include political prisoners, petty criminals and unfortunates sold into servitude. Few survive to return to their homeworlds.
Imperial medics tend to soldiers on the battlefield and behind the front lines, with their duties encompassing everything from triage to preventive medicine. Medics benefit from the assistance of droids as well as the latest Imperial technology, utilizing equipment such as pain-relieving gas and antiseptic field projectors. The Empire interprets the galaxy’s ancient medical oaths as only applying to one’s own species, and allows its medics to bear arms in combat.
Imperial Mobile Surgical Units, or IMSUs, are the latest incarnation of prefabricated medcenters used during the Clone Wars. These collapsible shelters serve as a combination of doctor’s office and operating room for Imperial medics and droids. On Mimban, maladies include dehydration, microbial infections and “trench foot,” as well as the usual perils of battle.
