Captain Noran Vran was a young female officer in the 656th regiment, which served the Galactic Empire on the planet Xanas. After Emperor Palpatine's death at Endor, she was in need of medical supplies for her troops. She made a deal with Magresh, who had actually stolen the supplies from her facility in West County, in exchange for ten portable missile launchers. However, the missile launchers were rigged, and after Vran left they exploded, killing Magresh.
