Andrew Woolfson led a team sent by the Galactic Republic and explored the Sylenia V system some decades before the Ruusan Reformation. He encountered a native species on Sylvia IV and named them Sylphes.
The battle was a quick victory for the Republic, but the unit's repatriation was delayed by the lack of fuel. The repatriation took five months to arrive on Arrakad, and the metabolism of the Sylphes wasn't adapted to the arid climate of Arrakad. All of them died before the ships arrived. The Human survivors of the brigade deserted or vowed to take revenge, without success. Andrew Woolfson committed suicide on Arrakad to follow his wife, deceased because of the climate.
Behind the scenesEdit
