this Gotal Emmisary to the Old Republic was captured by the Roshu Sune near Atzerri, shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars. Nirrelz had been on Atzerri trying to secure shipments of bacta back to his homeworld, in an effort to provide aid to the Gotals who suffered hardships after the Battle of Antar 4. Following Nirrelz' kidnapping, the Roshu Sune guerillas simply transmitted the Articles of Secession in place of formal demands. They hoped to force the government of Antar 4 to formally secede from the Republic. Nirrelz was eventually freed by a team of Jedi Knights.
