- "Truly it is a dark time for the galaxy. All we can do is give our best and do what we can to preserve the New Republic. Of course, it isn't as bad as Tarim or Bahni make out."
- ―Arhul Hextrophon in a personal message to Voren Na'al
Tarim was a colleague of Arhul Hextrophon who was of the opinion that the loss of Coruscant to the Galactic Empire in 10 ABY was a shattering blow to the New Republic. Hextrophon did not share his belief.
