GNW recently learned that the Chairman of the Galactic Federation of Free Republics, and Queen of New Alderaan, Her Royal Highness Rebellia was nearly taken hostage by a member of the Shadow Sith Clan. Federation Security and other Federation Members identified the Sith attacker as Lord Arlen who is a prominent member of the Shadow Sith Clan. This attack comes on the back of the recent battle fought between the Shadow Sith Clan and New Alderaan Security right on the Palace rooftop.
The attacker was beaten back ironically not by Federation or New Alderaan forces but by suspected Sith group who was earlier involved in a confrontation with a New Alderaaan Security Trooper.
The motivation for one Sith group to attack another is not clear at this point however experts on the Sith state this is not unusual and is known to happen from time to time.
