this man served as the Imperial Consul-General of the planet Kothlis, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. A former minor official on Coruscant, Halsek managed to make enemies out of nearly everyone he came into contact with. He used his few political favors to get the position on Kothlis in order to get away from the Imperial court. He was completely loyal to the Empire, but was willing to allow the Bothans a measure of freedom in order to maintain his position. His infatuation with Liiria Beldonna led to his hiring of Beldonna's Legion as a force to keep Kothlis secure. It was during the war that Halsek was approached by Cecil Noone and his band of thieves, who wanted to sell a Hapan gun of command to him. Halsek wanted the weapon for himself, but wasn't willing to pay the price Noone was asking. He tried to have the thieves captured and the gun confiscated, but they managed to escape before his stormtroopers could stop them.
