I do not no if my vode survived the war, I have had no time to even find out. I feel like the shadow of myself, a dead man walking. I have to ask, what purpose can an organisation, and organisation offer to someone like me, to make me feel like I'm worth a damn again? Right now, all I feel is failure."

Corey Black was a Mandalorian Warrior and Bounty Hunter, the former apprentice and lover of Muriel Y'ar, and father to their unborn child. He has both served, and turned his back on the Empire, maintaining steady loyalty only for those who he considers friends and allies, even beyond their deaths, and for his home planet of Mandalore.
