Frontier Trader Lilith
Once frozen Zhodani scientist and leader
Count Plad (as Mux called him) was the leader of a team of Zhodani who were put into cold sleep during the fourth frontier war, and who, because of a malfunction, would never have awakened, had the party not happened along. The underwater base that they occupied was discovered by a salvage operation, and the Lilith was hired to transport out the findings. It turns out that the purpose of the base was to detonate a nuclear weapon in a way that would have caused a tectonic reaction that would have destroyed a nearby Imperial Naval base.
Stezhpladiashav escaped the base in a small shuttle, leaving behind his second-in-command, Elevsha.
