    Thorus
    Looking for Needles, are you? I'm afraid he's long gone, my friend.
    Meteor
    Let's see those hands, nice and slow.
    Thorus
    Don't worry, I won't give you any trouble. I wouldn't stand a chance fighting you. So, I won't. Instead, let me make a suggestion. I'll tell you everything you need to know about Needles. But in exchange, you have to let me go.
    Meteor
    You seem to know an awful lot about my mission here.
    Thorus
    You're wearing a Havoc Squad insignia and searching Needles's files. It doesn't take a great mind to put the two together.
    Meteor
    You're in no position to bargain.
    Thorus
    No, I'm in no position to fight. I'm in an excellent position to bargain. I have information you need, it's as straightforward as that. You and I are both soldiers, yes? Coincidence makes us enemies, but that's no reason we can't come to an honorable agreement. It's simple. Let me live, and I will tell you everything. Kill me, and you'll learn nothing.
    Elara Dorne
    Come in, Lieutenant. This is Sergeant Dorne. Do not trust this man - I served with him in the Empire. His name is Thorus.
    Thorus
    What? Who is that, who are you talking to? Dorne? D- Dorne, is that you?
    Elara Dorne
    Thorus is a mass murderer, Lieutenant. A war criminal.
    Meteor
    I'm listening, Sergeant. Go on.
    Elara Dorne
    Military actions against civilian populations are explicitly unlawful, as defined in the Treaty of Coruscant. During my time in Imperial service, Thorus ordered the executions of hundreds of civilian non-combatants and full-scale bombings of unarmed populations. Furthermore, these actions were committed in circumvention of direct orders from Imperial Command.
    Thorus
    I am a soldier! I- I do what I must to achieve my objectives! Just like you, Lieutenant.
    Meteor
    I don't kill civilians, you Imp scum.
    Thorus
    Please, listen! I'll tell you everything, everything I know! Needles is doing experiments on the rakghouls. He wants to understand their disease, t- to turn it into a weapon. He- he left here a few hours ago. He said he was visiting some "friends" in the ruins of an old transport station, to get more samples.
    Meteor
    I'm going to need a lot more detail, here.
    Thorus
    R- rakghouls. He needs more t- to continue his research. He won't say who his "friends" are, but they supplied the rakghouls. I've given you what you wanted. Now what about me?
    Meteor
    You'd know better than I would, Sergeant. What should I do here?
    Elara Dorne
    I respectfully suggest you discharge your weapon into Thorus's skull, Lieutenant.
    Thorus
    No! This isn't fair!
    Meteor
    Since you helped me, you're free to go - for now.
    Thorus
    I'm glad we could work out an arrangement. Farewell, friend.
    Elara Dorne
    I'll meet you back at the SAR office, Lieutenant. Dorne out.

    Elara Dorne
    You spared a war criminal, Lieutenant. That man murdered hundreds of people, and you simply let him walk out of the Imperials' base.
    Meteor
    I'll take your opinion under advisement, Sergeant.
    Elara Dorne
    I'd appreciate it.
    Meteor
    Let's move on, shall we?

. Meteor made a deal with Thorus, who agreed to tell Havoc where Needles was, if he was allowed to go free. Dorne then came in on holo, warning Meteor not to broker any deals with him, explaining that she personally served with Thorus, who had committed war crimes in direct defiance of Imperial High Command. Thorus countered that he was only doing what was necessary to perform his duties and claimed that Meteor was no different. Angered by the comparison, Meteor raised a blaster, declaring they were nothing alike. Scared, Thorus confessed Needles' location and explained that he was experimenting with rakghouls

and other defectors. Though Sergeant Dorne recommended executing Thorus immediately, Havoc honored their agreement, letting the commander go.
After downloading all the research data from the bunker's computer and sending it to Dorne for analysis, Havoc Squad went to meet her in person at the SAR HQ at Olaris outpost. When Havoc met with Dorne at HQ, she was furious that Meteor just let Thorus go, but she was able to deal with her feelings.
