Bles was a green-skinned alien racketeer who had a niece and nephew, Rae and Dran. Their culture emphasized family commitment over mere technicalities such as legal niceties. They took little part in the social whirl, though in fights Bles would give orders which her niece and nephew would obey. They were aboard the Ananuru Express when the secret Imperial RNA brainwashing virus datatape was up for auction. Before the auction could begin, however, Bles ordered her family to search the suites to see if they could steal it.
