01.08.113 - IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MIES - Hara Kobaro Dourdan is pleased to announce the formalization of a Capsuleer Division.

It is generally recognized that pod pilots are a key driver of multinational commerce, and that their non-commercial actions, even those executed with actual or implied CONCORD endorsement, increasingly conflict with Corporate, Federal or local regulations.   We at H-K-D have been representing these elites in both commercial and extra-CONCORD legal matters on an ad-hoc basis since the beginning of the civilian capsuleer era.

The new Division will be headed by Administrative Director Celeste Fauconnier, a recent addition to our Hatakani-based Intellectual Property Practice.

Mme. Fauconnier, a capsuleer,  comes to H-K-D with substantial experience in foreign and domestic based capsuleer business entities, including those that functioned inline with Corporate and Imperial mandates. Prior to her capsuleering license, Mme. Fauconnier served twenty years in analyst roles with the Federation Senate's Research Appropriations Committee.  She was a Lead Special Advocate in Boulard Meditech vs. CAS-Adallier, the YC 105 Supreme Court ruling that established basic technology transfer ground rules between companies fostered in Federation technological incubators and their academic hosts.

The Capsuleer Division will operate as a CONCORD-registered entity.  It will be based out of our corporate headquarters system, with core administrative offices in the Duvolle Laboratories Factory at Mies VII, Moon 3, and evolving footprints in each H-K-D Practice Headquarters.

About H-K-D:
Hara Kobaro Dourdan believes effective legal representation begins with understanding our clients' operational environments. Our cross-Regional team draws on this understanding to collaborate with clients in handling the complex transactions and litigation facing businesses and individuals in this uncertain age.

Our firm is recognized by independent third parties for excellence in client service, technology, culture and Corporate Citizenship. We are also ranked among the leading Federation law firms in serving the unique needs of Caldari clients.

Overheard in Amarr VIII (Oris) - Emperor Family Academy, Noble Circle Level XVII

Female: (Speaking loudly in a haughty tone, Amarish with a Central Domain Noble dialect) Who does he think he is? You don't simply walk away from nobility - it's in the blood!
Male: (A droning Ni-Kunni voice) Quite right, milady.
Female: Sure, I've been doing all the work for the past year, but that doesn't mean he can just drop the whole holding on me! He's a capsuleer after all - he was the one thing keeping us afloat. Have you even seen the Lesath sales figures? Pathetic!
Male: The Ahadi acquisition was an unforeseen move on our lord's par- Aow!
Female: He's not your lord anymore and it'll do you good to remember it!
Male: Of course, milady. Apologies, milady.
Female: Blood-cursed Jove eggheads and their tribalist spies... Did you even see that Orphan character? He's a thug!
Male: Angels, milady.
Female: What?
Male: The Angel Cartel.
Female: Ah, yes. He mentioned something of that sort, didn't he? I had difficulty picking up on the subtler parts of his history the way he skirted around the periphery of every single topic he brought up. Worse than trying to get a straight answer from a Family man.
Male: Quite so, milady.
Female: Grrr... Why does he do this!? To chase after myth and legend? He's needed here! We're at bloody war!
Male: Let's go, milady. Our shuttle is arriving soon. We can carry on the discussion elsewhere...

Unconfirmed reports state that Saxon Hawke arrived in Villore last night via jump clone from Intaki.

The station personnel who reportedly saw the clone activate said the biomass was heavily implanted, a rarity of for Hawke who has shied away from all but the most mandatory enhancements for several years.

The source further states that Hawke spoke for a time with Minneliot Allate before departing the station in a heavily armed and armored Dominix class battleship. If true, the vessel could be the ILF Liberty Hammer, which Hawke used extensively in the Aunia System during his time as a freelance "consultant" with the Federation Navy.

Saxon Hawke has been seen moving throughout the inner offices of the Supreme Court being received as a guest of high regard. He and Maviryne Adent have also been seen dining together on several occasions, reportedly carrying on as if they are old friends.

One law clerk assigned to the court said Hawke is trying to convince justices to take up a review of the Voting Prohibition Act on its own merits. The clerk said the majority of the justices feel the case needs to be filed by a non-capsuleer who was kept from voting by the law.

After weeks of lobbying his contacts on the Supreme Court, it appears Saxon Hawke is preparing to return to Intaki.

Although no justices have commented publicly, well-placed sources say there is are a those who side with Hawke in his beliefs that the act was a violation of civil rights. However, they are not a majority and none are willing to take a public stand from the minority position.

Multiple sources confirm that Saxon Hawke did leave Villore via jump clone, but he DID NOT return to Intaki as suspected.

Sightings of the ILF leader at a station in the Intaki Syndicate have been reported, but they remain unconfirmed at this time.

Locator agents have confirmed that Saxon Hawke is moving about within Syndicate Space.

Eyewitnesses in the area say that although he is traveling in an unarmed shuttle, he has been seen moving about with a number of militant-looking individuals.

Rumors have been spreading of military grade munitions shipments to the isolated Osmon Mountainrange on New Caldari V (Onitseru). Crates of 50mm gatling railgun rounds, cryofuel, small arms, fuel supplies, and more. Conspiracy theorists suggest a team of Capsuleers have set up a dissident base deep under the mountains. More rational commentators have dismissed these claims, instead suggesting it to be another of Heth's many complexes.

While rumors have been low key, it has been noted by some that John Revenent was visiting the Korama solar system on the 7th - 8th. He was seen meeting in public with a somewhat distraught Caldari women in her late teens for several hours before attending a gathering, that was later said to be a funeral of the teen's mother. An hour before his departure he was seen in verbal dispute with a unidentified person.

Several transactions have been recorded being sent to private accounts from John's personal wallet ranging from 5000-800.000 ISK over the past few days.

Capsuleer Tiberious Thessalonia released most of his crew from their contracts today, letting them go at various stations within the Amarr Empire.   Released crewmen say that he came forward, and told them that anyone who didn't want to follow him down his new path would released from their contracts, free of penalty, with their entire rotations wages paid.

Ever-controversial Holder-Capsuleer Repentence Tyrathlion may have just outdone herself.  Various official sources have confirmed that she has authorised the entry and presence of a member of the Tribal Liberation Front into the Khanid Kingdom, and has even been flying alongside them!  An anonymous border officer revealed that Ms Tyrathlion offered to take full responsibility for any hostile actions the TLF pilot might commit while within Kingdom territory.  Unconfirmed reports indicate that the Republic capsuleer may be one Kalaratiri Saskia, of the Teraa Matar.

A certain Caldari Captain underwent a secret marriage ceremony on a visit home to the State recently. Eyewitnesses saw the high-profile capsuleer visiting a remote temple in New Caldari's northern region and ceremonially lighting the ritual incense hand-in-hand with his new bride.

The crew of the Aseyakone industrial "Mobile Laboratory" wishes to extend thanks to the Caldari Navy for a quick response when a freedom fighter craft appeared when the craft was doing salvage operations on a site where corporate security had earlier hit a Gurista deadspace compound. Corporate sources report that several people formerly held prisoner by pirates were missing from the site, but otherwise the ship escaped intact.

Compelled to the Capsule!

Re-Awakened Technologies has forced capsuleer training on employee Professor Nallika Troin, with disastrous results:

Gulfonodi 07.04.114

Professor Troil's illicit love-match with Re-Aw pilot Captain Silver Night met with disapproval from the transhumanist elitist cabal in charge of Re-Awakened Technologies, and desperate to avoid separation from the man she loves, Professor Troin submitted to experimental procedures derived from research into Sansha technology in Re-Aw's sinister laboratories intended to make her pod-ready.  The brave gesture backfired, though, and Professor Thoin was carried from the lab in a catatonic stupor.  Sources say Captain Night has had her inert body installed in his carrier-class Sansha sanctuary. Can he not bear to say goodbye? Or is the truth much less palatable?  Our exclusive illustrated report, "Capsuleers, Clones, Corpses and Carnality" inside!
