"To rise into the upper echelons of a galactic-scale operation such as the Czerka Corporation is nigh impossible. But for Rasmus Blys, it was inevitable. The son of humble farmers, Blys relied on his intellect, single-minded determination and ruthless nature to earn the title of Special Executive. The crowning achievement in Blys’ career: CZ-198, the one-time storage outpost he repurposed to become Czerka’s flagship research center. It’s a weapons-manufacturing empire that few can claim to rival–one that Special Executive Blys has no intention of relinquishing anytime soon."
