1. Please tell us a little about yourself. Why do you want to be a part of the Czerka family?

We experience intense bursts of deja-vu when visiting Rattatak, but the memory of planet of birth has been enriched with countless homeworlds when we became a Killik joiner. Sharing a history in Intelligence with Vector, but supplemented with a genetic background less known to the Killik and a thorough training in survival tactics, eased the way into the great hive. Since that time our hunger to learn from other collectives has grown. Czerka has been walking new paths in biological research, which overlaps with our own studies. Joining the Czerka family will be beneficial for both parties.

2. At Czerka, we pride ourselves on our accomplishments. Please name three of your accomplishments that you are most proud of. (Please do not include family milestones such as marriages or the birth of your children.)

Our primary achievement on a solitary scale must have been to attune our hosts pheromones to mimic that of the Vorantiki. Walking unnoticed through the herds of fierce beasts on Voss gave us ample opportunity to study the both the Gormak and the Voss at close range. While our studies have not gone unnoticed, so far neither party has been able to prevent us from gathering our research.

Different but not less spectacular, was the overcoming of old feuds and primal fears on Hoth. We became trapped between the same impenetrable icy ridge and the same huge Kitan crusher, as three young but fierce Miralian scouts. Looking behind on this event with relief as all of use made it safely from certain death, without having to slaughter each other for survival, will not be lauded by the Sith that we learned to serve, but that has never been our primary objective anyway.

Third and lastly, we once knitted a brooding vest for a queen of the Alderaan hives. We hear songs about it, while we have not discovered it's galactic significance.

3. How did you go about achieving the accomplishments above. Would you say you would do "whatever it takes" for success?

"Whatever it takes" is a limited way of viewing accomplishments, as if only one outcome would be desirable. Success lies in accepting there are several outcomes, in viewing all possible routes towards those outcomes and determine which paths are most efficient, regarding both efficiency and effectiveness. Taking three years to build the best robotic agitators, while the attacker breeds a swarm of small but aggressive Wrigglers in only two years, will leave you defenceless...

4. Would you say you have a strong moral compass? Do you think this could get in the way of your job, should you be asked to do something...questionable?

We hear many perspectives, as many as our hive mind can produce. There is no question that will not be asked and no answer that will not be given. In effect, the answer will only come in the experience, for which we never shun.

5. You are about to enjoy our wide variety of complimentary cocktails and snacks, when you notice that your esteemed colleague's newest experiment is likely to break out of their confines while you are gone. How would you handle this situation?

We find this a strange hypothesis, that an experiment would only break out during lunch hours. Unless it were hungry.. In that case the best way to prevent this breakout, would be to schedule the task of "checking experiment food bowls" always before lunch.
