During the Second Great War, the Raiders acquired an old Confederate adjutant and hired Orlan to decrypt it. Orlan decided to betray the Raiders and sell it to the Dominion. He tentatively hired Mira's Mercs to prevent the rebels from interfering. However, the mercenaries were unable to achieve the required quota of 6000 minerals before Raynor's Raiders, and nearly the entire force was wiped out until Orlan surrendered, and was forced to hand over the adjutant. Orlan was stored "on ice".
