"Groups like the Happy Blasters give this trade a bad name. Almost anyone can tell you about the disasters these types of mercenaries have caused, incidents like the Benkal Plagues or the water crisis on Orroman, but not many people can remember the name of the scout who discovered their world or who charted the territory they live in."

The Benkal Plagues was a series of medical disasters perpetrated by a mercenary group like that of the Happy Blasters in the Benkal system.
