"Imperial officials touring the world which saw the creation of the Galactic Empire would not likely be seen as good in the eyes of the Federation, luckily my contacts in Imperial Intelligence have been my go-between with them." Varik slid a datapad containing information regarding the project to the fellow Moff. "Colonel Edson Drathul of the Imperial Intelligence Agency is a member of my staff and is responsible for contacts within the cloning field." Varik sat back and sighed, every so often the stress of the situation got to him and when it did, it bothered him. He sipped on his drink and bit more and placed it down.
"Succession is something that indeed must be discussed. Luckily enough there is no new viable candidate for the Chairman of the Council. At least none that Taluka has informed us of...if he does that causes a potential problem but one that can be fixed." Varik folded his hands on the desk as he sat forward and looked at Silas. "In the event of that happening we will press forward and simply replace the current Chairman." Varik rubbed the tips of his fingers together and sighed again, heavier this time. "With that being said. If this goes according to plan without a new Chairmen, we will be assuming leading roles in an Imperial Council." Varik paused for a moment to think.
"In an old fashioned way...an Imperial Ruling Council. Sort of throwback don't you think?" Varik chuckled. "Equally appointed members from both of our staffs who are responsible for branches throughout the Empire." Varik sighed again and rubbed his chest slightly. "There is one problem that we do have to face that either way isn't going to go away." Varik tapped the keyboard on his desk and the holographic projection of a robbed man came up, spinning slightly in a 360 degree turn. It was none other than Aeaolen Kicka, the Equerry to the Moff Council especially the Chairman of the Moff Council. While the Equerry, as he was so affectionately called by the Moffs, was not widely known outside the Moff Council the Moffs knew who he was. Knew all too well. "Him."
