Jenk Gallen (born 2903-12-8 SET Lady of Mercy, Tram on Asura, Ferron System) is a freelance hauler. He is known for being arrested by the Xi'an (August 2943 - November 2943), which lead to diplomatic tensions between UEE and Xi'an in 2943.
Gallen was born in the slums of Tram. His parents are unknown. Gallen was sold to local slumlord called Carlo Yenn before 2912. He worked for him as a drug runner from 2912 until Yenn doedunder unknown cirumstances. During this time, he became addicted to a drug called WiDoW.
In his criminal career he served 10 years (in total) for assault and burglary in prisons on Ferron, Davien and Croshaw before 2930. He did not achieveEquivalency during his early life. He had no charges after his last parole in 2930.
Following this period of his life he made a "turnaround" an became "a devout member of the Fourth Sun Unity Church" and worked as a "ground-loader while attempting to complete his Equivalency". He met Ada Sinclair (somewhere between 2930 - 2934), possibly a educational aide at his local school  and Equivalency counsellor. He successfully passed his Equivalency in 2934 and subsequently worked as a freelance hauler and contract pilot. He married Ada Sinclair some time before 2934.
Gallen was arrested by Xi'an authorities on suspicion of espionage in August 2943. Xi'an Diplomat Torsi Leelk refused initial demands by Imperator Costigan to set Gallen free. The circumstances of Gallen's alleged crimes are not publicly known, but it is possible that he was part of (or at least, believed by the Xi'an to be part of) an attempt to contact the Kr’Thak.
Operation Scimitar was an operation launched by the Advocacy to fight criminality in UEE systems close to the Xi'an. It was a direct reaction of the incident. The operation was intended as a demonstration of strength, rather than fighting against crime. It was personally approved by Imperator Costigan, High-Secretary Sharrad and High-Advocate Upshaw. Thomas D. Carmody, Director of the Advocacy said in an internal message: We want your agents to sweep their territories [the border systems to the Xi'an]. I want a full crackdown on any open bounties or outstanding warrants."
Negotiation and Release
In November 2943, High-Secretary Illyana Sharrad, Xi'an Diplomat Torsi Leelk and Attle Heehth, High Council Advisor to Emperor Kr.ē met on the former Perry Line world of Yethlūl S.yen'o (formerly known as Hadur III), ostensibly to view the new efforts to terraform the world and to discuss economic collaboration. After a closed door session, it was announced that Gallen would be released.
