"I need you to rescue my son, Karl. I know this might put his life at risk, not to mention your well being, but I see no other way."
Hugo Eckener, to a spacer[src]

The Rescue of Karl Eckener was the final stage of a series of attempts by agents of the Royal Naboo Security Forces to rescue Karl Eckener, the son of Hugo Eckener.

Background[edit | edit source]

"No. No! We've done everything they've asked, and yet my son has not been released. I have no other choice. There's only one option left."
―Hugo Eckener, to a spacer[src]

Karl Eckener had been kidnapped by the Darkwalkers because of gambling debts. He also had gambling debts to the Skaak Tippers. Not knowing which group had kidnapped Karl, Hugo had agents of the RSF perform deeds for both criminal groups in an attempt to please them into releasing Karl.[6][7][8]

When this failed, Hugo saw only one final solution - namely to stage an armed rescue of his son and dispatched RSF agents to the bases of operations of both groups.[4]

The rescue[edit | edit source]

"The Darkwalker leaders have the codes. Solon Gaw, Critolus Masse, and Marcus Gaw. They will not give up the codes without a fight. When you have them, use the prisoner constraint console and add me to the access list for the console."
Karl Eckener, to a spacer[src]

The RSF agents who went to the Darkwalkers' cave near Theed. They eventually found Karl there. However, they were unable to liberate Karl from his prison cell, because three separate security codes were needed to shut down the energy field that was holding him prisoner.[4]

Karl informed the RSF agents that the three of the Darkwalker leaders — aegis guard Solon Gaw, underlord Critolus Masse, and bloodlord Marcus Gaw — residing in the cave were in possession of the codes. The RSF agents saw no other option but to seek out the three criminals an kill them and subsequently loot the security codes from their dead bodies. Having killed the three Darkwalkers, the RSF agents shut down the force field and Karl returned to his father.[4]

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

"Karl is safe, and I cannot thank you enough for that! I don't think the Skaak Tippers or the Darkwalkers will be bothering him for now, but I'm definitely going to have to do something about Karl's gambling problem."
―Hugo Eckener, to a spacer[src]

The RSF agents returned to a grateful Hugo Eckener who thanked them, whereupon they reported in to Pooja Naberrie who gave them a considerable reward and praised them for their work for the RSF.[4]
