Miskin had previously worked as a shipping clerk on Ipsus for Naescorcom, but was fired for negligence, having mixed up a pair of shipments. Apparently, a group of Outer Rim pirates received textiles from Line One, while a Coruscant orphanage was shipped several crates of thermal detonators from Line Two. Miskin could have been executed for the failure, if not for his personal charm.
Miskin enjoyed work that had him interacting with people, especially rich and influential people. His goal was to someday open up his own business—he was not sure what kind of business—and he hoped that by currying favor with the resort's clientèle, his charm and knowledge of Dorumaa could gain him investors.
