There, scientists were secretly conducting dangerous scientific research for the Empire, intending to re-engineer the dreadful Blackwing virus into a bioweapon. Dr. Ray operated on level 2 of the research laboratory.[1] Around 1 ABY,[2] Piodas Ray was present when an accident took place in the Imperial Research and Prison Facility and the virus escaped containment. The virus killed most of the people ins the area, turning them into undead creatures.[1]
