|Chronological and political information|
Before being assigned to Kothlis, Gilad was a minor official on Coruscant. During his time on Kothlis, he occasionally turned a blind eye to the Bothans, ensuring that the populace would not murder him.
He was approached by Cecil Noone around 0 ABY when the thief was attempting to offload a stolen Hapan Gun of Command. Halsek double-crossed the thief however, and Noone and his crew just managed to escape from the planet ahead of 24 stormtroopers and a legion of planetary militia.
