The man known as Darmas Pollaran is an elaborate fiction‒a cover identity crafted by one of Imperial Intelligence's most successful infiltrators. Every woman romanced, every hand of sabacc played and every scrap of information gathered has all been in service to the Sith Empire. He is fiercely loyal to the brutal oppressors he so faithfully serves.
Darmas despises everything about the Republic, but reserves special hatred for its criminal denizens. Now that his true identity is revealed, certain past calamities within the galactic underworld‒like the rise and fall of the Migrant Merchants' Guild on Coruscant‒must be viewed in a new light. It is almost certain Darmas had a direct hand in these events.
