"There are no secrets better kept than the secrets everybody guesses." ~ George Bernard Shaw Again, nice recall to the Thrawn Trilogy where Thrawn mentions meeting Mara for the first time and tested her on what she wore. Good job "filling in the blanks". So Mara has been officially introduced to Thrawn. And I can trust Xizor as far as I can throw him. Vader's strong emotions that Mara felt had to be because of the Falleen's presence. I can see Thrawn, Mara, and Vader performing acts that benefit the Empire. But Xizor? I'm sure you'll reveal his true goals where the Empire is concerned in future updates.
