Full Name: Claude Marlenoix
Age: Unknown, but roughly 45-55 cycles
Affiliations: SRID (covert), independent businessman in Peace River
CURRENT STATUS: Alive and bemused.

Quotes: "At least there's always the restaurant."

The apparent station head of Southern intelligence activities in Peace River, "Bill" has a cool demeanour and reacts well to unexpected events. He is perceptive, capable, and determined. "Bill" has also demonstrated great flexibility when confronted with alternative methods of conflict resolution.

The Peace River cell of the SRID attempted to apprehend the Regulator team sent to Peace River to decrypt the diskette containing the survey information regarding the cavern system attached to the McAllan network near Baja. After disposing of a significant number of SRID disposable assets, and facing stiffer opposition in the form of an actual SRID operative team, a ceasefire was negotiated. As a result, the Peace River cell of the SRID was made aware of the contents of the diskette; this news was not transmitted to other SRID operatives, including Leah Dorchuk, resulting in the murder of Mayor Xiao, most of the New Baja city hall office staff and the protracted battle in the northern districts of Baja over the night of 30-31 Summer, TN1918. The events in Peace River also lead to the reluctant, if not entirely unwilling, addition of Dr. Thomas Chambers to the company of the New Baja marshals.


After viewing the contents of the diskette, "Bill" calmly told the marshals that he would no longer interfere in their mission and destroyed his copy of the diskette. The marshals left Peace River for Baja with no further incident on the 28th Summer, TN1918.

In early Spring TN1919, Gade, Kain, Sam and Tom met again with "Bill," who revealed to them his name (Claude) and that he was a restauranteur in Peace River. His place, "Chez Claude" is one of the more upscale eateries in the 3rd Terrace Badlands Quarter, being Zagat rated and having a rather distinguished group of clientele. Kain acknowledged their debt to Claude due to the latter's actions in the incident with Prabal Nandy and the diskette.

Dorchuk, Leah

Full Name: Leah Dorchuk
Age: 36 cycles
Affiliations: MILICIA (discharged), Baja Regulators, SRID (covert)

This attractive young lady from Baja joined the Regulators at their founding. Her military experience with the MILICIA was welcome, and her participation in the liberation of Baja indicated sympathies for the local citizenry.

However, this was all a cover. Dorchuk was in fact an undercover agent of the SRID.

Aside from regular operations with the New Baja Regulators, Dorchuk is presumed to have fed information back to the SRID. Her most notorious actions were the assassination of Mayor Xiao and the release of three bounding nerve-gas canisters within the city environs. This resulted in the death of over forty civilians and over one hundred major injuries.


Sam shot her. Except not in the face.

In fact, he was only indirectly responsible for her death; she succumbed to injuries caused by a car crash.

Any volunteers? -- Regulator Interviews

The interviews began early in the morning, after juice and cookies were provided by the mayor and the general store. A line had formed outside the marshal's office, and a rather mixed and motley bunch had already been waiting when it was time for the interviews to begin. The call had gone out about a week before, and finally this was it. The door opened, and Sam smiled, "Alright, who's first?"

The interview process dragged on for a few hours....

"Name, age and occupation?"

"Katalina Steinman, I'm 35 cycles from Peace River. I was in the Peace River Army engineering detachment."


"Battle of Baja. I was a combat engineer."

"Right," Kain nodded, "next!"


"Thornton Will, 60 cycles, Western Frontier Protectorate Army."


"40 cycles as company sergeant in the 3rd WFPA Armoured Division."

"Right," Kain nodded, "next."

"Leah Dorchuk," the lovely young woman says, "36 cycles, from Baja."


"MILICIA infantry. I enlisted before the CEF showed up. Helped liberate Baja Tower."

"Right," Kain nodded, "next."

"William Barton Pearce, 25 cycles. I'm from Lance Point."


"Heavy weapons gunner for the Peace River Army, and resistance driver."

"Right," Kain nodded, "next."


"I am Koldur Jerasi!" the larger, square jawed man states like a challenge.

"Er..." Kain began.

"I've got this one, Kain." Sam smiled affably up at the big man, "You're a Sandrider, aren't you?"

"Yes, I am Koreshi, wandering this world until my tribe calls for me to return to the Great White Desert."

"I see," Sam continued, "and your reasons for being in this line today are...?"

"I was sent here by the Old Woman of the Desert."

"Right," Sam nodded, "next."
