Lio Travski joined the Ghost Academy where his hab addiction became hard to maintain. He would frequently send messages to Desi, using his technopathy to evade "Sparky", the Academy's computer.
When his hab supply was cut off, a desperate Travski traded a favor for drugs from new student Aal Cistler. Desi would sabotage the Kal-Bryant Mining Conglomerate he worked for, in order to implicate the father of Cistler's enemy, Kath Toom. The sabotage was carried out.
