Project Auger was a Galactic Empire directive carried out under the will of Emperor Palpatine. The project involved the occupation of the planet Zeffo, and Imperial mining operations to excavate the many ancient artifacts on the planet. The inhabitants of Zeffo were displaced so that the Empire could occupy the world, though Zeffo's magnetic winds made the Imperial technology malfunction. The project was stagnant until the ambitious Officer Krane took leadership. Officer Krane was a reckless leader, and many of her troops and workers died due to mining accidents, Zeffo wildlife, or tunnel collapses. Officer Krane herself died while hiding an artifact that she thought would gain her favor with the Emperor. The project was set to be cancelled, but it was started up after the former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis uncovered ancient Zeffo tombs. After being reactivated, Project Auger saw an influx of Imperial forces, including stormtroopers, Purge Troopers and the Inquisitor known as the Second Sister, who sought to hunt Kestis down.
