according to the ancient Sharu legends, the Emissary would accompany the Bearer to the Rafa System when it was time for the Mindharp to be activated. The Bearer would possess the Key of the Overpeople, and would appear when the ancient danger had passed and it was time for the Sharu to emerge from hiding. The Emissary was described in the legends as a strange, five-sided alien who was more mechanical than organic. Any being discovered to be falsely posing as the Emissary would be summarily executed, and the false Bearer would be left to die in the wilderness of Rafa V. When Rokur Gepta heard this, he activated Vuffi Raa and kept him on Rafa IV while Osuno Whett went to the Oseon System to search out a candidate for the Bearer. When Whett found Lando Calrissian, he used Vuffi Raa as credit in a game of sabacc, which he then lost on purpose. This led Lando to the Rafa System and into the hands of Gepta and Duttes Mer, where he eventually recovered the Mindharp with the help of Mohs.
