Ilm Vaz-Weplinn was an Assistant-Deputy Viceprex of Security Division with the Corporate Sector Authority.


Ilm contacted Imperial Minister of Corrections Lady Chawkroft and proposed the joint development of an advanced prison facility in the Corporate Sector. Chawcroft was pleased with this proposal: her ministry welcomed the chance to share costs of prison development with the CSA, and Sate Pestage had blocked the budget requests of the Admiralty for their own prison facilities.

Shortly after she signed on, Viceprex Mirkovig Hirken took control of the project, code-named "Stars' End".
