Mannet point and Reki fled from his home, sealing it so Separatists could not enter. He retreated to a safehouse he owned in Talloran village, another settlement close by, but the Separatists soon also managed to capture
Talloran as well. Reki became trapped within his safehouse during the Separatist occupation and took in several other villagers including several women whose husbands had been killed in the Separatist assault while defending the village.During the time he was trapped in Talloran, Reki was visited by the smuggler known as Voidhound. Voidhound had been sent by Viidu
, who was an old acquaintance of Reki's. The smuggler had been sent to obtain information on the Separatists, whom Viidu believed Reki knew much about, as Skavak, one of Rendia Freight's employees, had stolen
a shipment of blasters and joined up with the Separatists. Voidhound needed to know where they could find out Skavak's location and in return had a survival pack for the trapped man. Reki explained that there was a database of all Separatist personnel kept in a warehouse near his old home in Mannett point. Before the war he had stolen goods from there and so kept a schematic of the building, however it was still sealed in his home on Mannett point. Reki explained that to get to the warehouse Voidhound would have to get into his home first.Reki had sealed the house by overloading the door meaning that the town's power would first have to be shut off by destroying the three power relays for the door to open. Once inside the smuggler would have to find the schematics which were concealed with in a Treatise on bird watching that Reki owned and found particularly boring. To access the schematics every mention of the Mantellian flutterplume
within the treatise had to be replaced with the number three, once this was done the schematics would be revealed. Finally the smuggler could use the secret back exit to Reki's home to take him to the warehouse. He warned the smuggler that the database would require special equipment to hack into but that Viidu would know more about that. Voidhound thanked Reki and gave him the supply pack.
