He was keeping an eye on the Guardsmen under his purview while they were on shore leave on Port Echo when Task Force Litany was attacked and driven off by the Licenian Regency. He found entertainment in the company of Celine, who later called him to help protect her from arrest. He extracted more truth from her than she expected, however, and he nearly ended up executing her as a heretic.
