To: The Count Noctifer of House Varn of Serenno, Pater Familias of House Sanguis, Grand Master of the Watchful Order of the Shrouded Dawn
Subject: CEDF Studies and Observations Group
Body: My most esteemed ally, Count Noctifer’Varn
I have received the proposal from yourself and Capt. Ziah’Synex, and she has consulted me personally as to the validity of the operation. Due to the benefits which would bestow both our parties, I have approved the operation, and will be assigning a formal group, heretofore known as the Studies and Observations Group, within your organization to be placed under your usage and command.
I do confess, with the greatest of respect, that I have concerns about the welfare of my people in Imperial territory, with their standard views towards non-humans. Hoth has proven successful, however I receive troubling reports form time to time.
