In certain times of our lives we come across information regarding certain individuals which one may find troubling, or outright concerning due to their potential implications in their current employment or to their colleagues or partners. I’ve been privy to information that certain people who I care for deeply are not aware of, and whilst I would use private channels to convey said information, I feel it is in the public interest that this information be made available to all those that have dealings with this particular person.
I am of course, referring to Captain Silver Night. Whilst supposedly he has reformed himself from the days where he was an outspoken advocate of Sansha’s Nation as part of the Naqam Corporation, becoming a noted member of the interstellar community as part of Re-awakened Technologies and the Arataka Research Consortium, as well as being a self-professed ‘philanthropist’, some recent actions of his have nevertheless raised concern. He has expressed an interest in a fairly vulnerable Federal member state in low-security space, as well as a strong personal interest in the implants of a certain friend of mine whom I shall not name to preserve their privacy. I have been convinced through my research into past and present events that the proverbial Slaver Hound in question has not changed his stripes.
His tenure in Naqam, a Nation loyalist corporation, can be described as nothing less than horrific. His involvement in numerous shady and downright questionable affairs is deplorable. Several of these enterprises include the development, production and deployment of the notorious ‘NHB Happy Chip’, the ‘Safe Harbour’ initiative in which free chips and passage to Stain/Esoteria were offered to vulnerable citizens and refugees of the State of which several thousand took his offer. They have most likely fallen into the vice-like grip of Nation, never to be seen or heard from again. In addition to this, he also criticised Caldari loyalist groups such as the Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive for eliminating Nation combat vessels in the Providence region as part of a joint-security operation with the Curatores Veritatis Alliance in YC111 for not being in the State’s interest, despite the State being part of the coalition of the willing that burned down the Nation in the first place.
His attempts at subverting innocents did not stop with the State. His hatred of the Federation is undeniable, with threats issued by himself to the tune of: “If we travel to the Federation for something other than groceries, you will know. Believe me.”. Nation launched several raids on Federal territory sometime after this statement, including a litany of disastrous assaults on several low-security worlds in Federation space in which they were nigh-depopulated at the hands of Nation strike forces. Why is he establishing himself in the Federation now, after all this time?
Indeed, his current operations in the Federation are currently located on a low-security world very similar to those that were ‘uplifted’ during the initial raids. Is this what he implied all those years ago, nefarious activities dressed up under the visage of being ‘humanitarian’? We know through parsing Sisters of Eve medical reports that those under the banner of Nation rarely leave the fold, and if they do, almost inevitably return to Nation eventually. And well, Nation does like sending agents provocateurs in advance of a full-scale raid. That this be permitted is unacceptable, and I won’t stand by and watch a potential agent soften up this world.
Captain Night’s involvement with pirates, terrorists and criminals are well-recorded throughout his career, historically with organisations such as a working relationship with a Covenant-aligned entity, Cruoris Seraphim, and its representative Celes Tenebrae. They collaborated in forming an orphanage for children that were undoubtedly indoctrinated into Covenant or Nation-inspired ideologies, involuntary upgraded both genetically and cybernetically, with gruesome ‘blooding’ rituals carried out upon children that were not part of the Orphanage or the ‘Exalted family’ as it was referred to. Children! Targeting youth not even old enough for the State to even consider beginning their training! This working relationship appears to have transcended their old corporate employers, as both are currently members of the Arataka Research Consortium. This is surely indicative that they continue to work together on these ghastly projects, and that any pretence of reformation is merely a smokescreen to earn trust and approval by his peers.
Furthermore, his direct employment of criminals and terrorists is well known, including one Sarakai Voutelen. Sarakai Voutelen was a terrorist specialising in the wholesale slaughter of Intaki, falling under Captain Night’s protective embrace. Safe harbour provided for a mass murderer from the Federal authorities by a Caldari nationalist and a Nation sympathiser, no… a Nation collaborator! Numerous other outlaws are known to work or have worked for Captain Night, although there are too many with a variety of criminal charges to their records to list in this post. This recruitment practice of his continues to the present day, with several under his command bearing criminal records of varying degrees of severity.
And finally, what interest does Captain Night have in the Federation, an entity that he has historically condemned and shown a great dislike to? For someone that has exhibited strong opinions on the Caldari typical of the Patriot Bloc, condemning the Federation’s society and values, accusing the Federation of committing genocide against not only the Caldari but also against Nation, as well as stating that Nouvelle Rouvenour was justified to an extent, this represents a considerable change in perception. He can only be there for the sole purpose to act on his beliefs and prejudices, especially as his interests focus upon a small, vulnerable member state in low-sec Federal space.
We Deteis are renowned for our ‘faces’, our convincing ability to conceal our true thoughts, emotions and desires from others. I have my own faces, I have my own flaws and I am not innocent of utilising this practice when convenient for my own affairs. However, I am not Nation. Captain Night is employing an elaborate ‘face’ to conceal his true intentions in an attempt to deceive those in the Federation. With statements such as the following: “Yes, naturally everyone lies… I might have to bend the truth a little though.” and “The ideals of the Nation continue to drive me to fight its enemies” it is fairly damning to his character. Now, one may say ‘Oh, it’s been ten years, what relevance do these statements have in the current day?’ Ten years ago, I was swept up by Heth’s message out of anger and rage, and I have done my utmost to change my outlook since those dark days where hate and anger ruled my thoughts. My misgivings about Captain Night I felt were also relegated to history, until I chanced across an installation in orbit above this low-sec world where his operations are, with Naqam corporate registration! A surveillance station, undoubtedly gathering and sending information off to Nation-affiliates, in a region ravaged by Nation! There can be no doubt about it. We have been misled! Deceived! Captain Night is still Nation at heart, to his very core. And I urge you all, see this man for who he is behind the façade! The traitor, the collaborator, behold the man!
