In November 2261, during the last days of the Earth Alliance Civil War, Lise Hampton-Edgars, widow of the late William Edgars of Edgars Industries was running scared after her husband and staff were murdered in their home by Psi Corps. Lise attempted to bribe her way off planet, going to the Mars mafia for help. Luko, the local boss decided it'd be more profitable to hold her for ransom. Michael Garibaldi eventually tracked them down after leaning on Max, one of the best black market accountants on Mars whom Luko had lined up to launder the anticipated ransom payment. With the aid of a strike force of Anla'Shok, Garibaldi was able to storm Luko's hideout and rescue Lise.
