- "No, but we are certain that a trooper named Linds is a Rebel sympathizer. He had been in contact with each man."
- ―Mar Barezz
Linds served the Imperial Army as a soldier. The Imperial Security Bureau was confident that Linds held sympathies for the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and that he had been in contact with two other soldiers, Captain Ganig and Sergeant Stecker, who had already been tagged as "sensitive" by the ISB due to lax displays regarding doctrine. Although the ISB held no proof that Ganig or Stecker planned to defect to the Alliance, Officer Mar Barezz arranged for the pair's death during the raid on Picutorion.
