MandaPharma CEO Teroch Qir-zan has issued a statement announcing the death of Sith Imperium hopeful Komik Ki, following his attempted infiltration of MandaPharma. In a press room filled with the scent of frying bird, Mr. Qir-zan released the following statement.
"False Sith, Arthur von Kaldreon, attempted to recruit two of our people recently. We believe one intended to work as a double agent. Naturally, MandaPharma could not allow this to stand and therefore decided to arrest the wannabe Sith agent before he could cause any damage to the organization. This is the Sith Imperium's third failed infiltrator in recent weeks, it is quite embarrassing really."
The Sith Imperium initially denied the attempt, yet knew exactly who the infiltrator was. Unfortunately, following an accident involving hot oil and eleven herbs and spices, the accused spy died in custody, en route to his trial. MandaPharma offered to return the body of their newest recruit for a small fee to cover administrative costs, however, the offer was refused with the following statement.
"[He meant] Nothing, Komik Ki merely made it where he can’t rejoin us is all." It is unsurprising that the Sith Imperium would care little for the lives of their recruits in light of their poor track record on this matter in past conflicts.
In entirely unrelated news, the Qir-zan Eateries restaurant chain has also announced a new menu item, Korriban Fried Fosh, which uses a recipe borrowed from a retired military officer. Early reviews have included comments such as "Finger Lickin' Good" and "I could eat that by the bucket".
