HOTH SYSTEM - In a brilliant and daring strike, General Octavion Sorin of the Imperial Army has crushed the final hopes of a band of Rebel stragglers, and simultaneously proven the value of his SC2-M Repulsor Tank to the Imperial ground assault arsenal.
Following the great Imperial victory over the Rebellion in the Hoth System several months ago, a small band of Rebel stragglers - who had thus far eluded capture - have finally been brought to Imperial justice. Their capture was brilliantly engineered by an Imperial profile in courage: General Octavion Sorin.
General Sorin served alongside Lord Darth Vader and General Maximilian Veers during the original battle of Hoth, when the Rebellion had been discovered on this frigid Outer Rim wasteland. Sorin was put in charge of capturing surviving Rebels.
The pathetic Rebel fugitives had been chased around several worlds along the Ison Corridor before they were forced to return to Hoth in utter desperation. It was there that General Sorin had laid a clever trap for them, and the Rebel refugees for whom they had sought to find shelter.
In the final hour of his campaign, General Sorin demonstrated the devastating power of the SC2-M Repulsor Tank, which proved to be invulnerable to the Rebels' pesky attacks as Sorin's forces cornered the Rebels in the bowels of a starship wreck. It was there - leading the charge - that General Sorin bravely sacrificed his own life so that the Rebel menace would be snuffed out rather than be allowed to threaten the lives of good Imperial subjects throughout the galaxy.
General Sorin's life was taken by a cowardly sniper shot from the Rebels. While the sniper was immediately destroyed by the repulsor tank under Sorin's immediate command, the Empire mourns the loss of one of its finest officers. Despite the tragedy of his death, General Sorin still provides a courageous example that all Imperial citizens should be proud and honored to follow.
