Chils Melpin was the Prex of the Corporate Sector Authority. After Auditor-Generals Fiolla and Naven Crel learned that he had been selling CSA secrets to the Galactic Empire, he dispatched his assistant, Akeeli Somerce, to eliminate both of them discreetly. However, Somerce failed to complete her task, leaving Fiolla alive. Fiolla would later vow to bring Meplin down for his corruption and role in the murder of Naven Crel.
