* AntiVillain: Jahan works for the Empire because he believes in what it stands for, and he has good reason to. It's worth noting that he doesn't share most Imperials' FantasticRacism (his relationship with Alessi is rather easygoing, and he seems unimpressed with when a coworker calls him a "slithering wermo").



* DaChief: You might have missed it, but Jahan's "M" is Armand Isard, presumably a relation of Ysanne Isard (a major villain in the ''X-Wing'' novel series).
