Year 16, Day 217: King Arklari Clise of the Kingdom of Elysia has named Ardalion Reven leader of Golan Technologies. Official statements are pending, but reactions from the company's rank-and-file were unanimously positive.
"I'm proud to say I knew him when," said an Ugnaught working on a PrG-7 assembly line. "I couldn't exactly say when, because it's none of your business. But I did. Know him. Then." The Ugnaught refused to offer further comment when pressed.
"Heesa treetsa everybody good," said a Gungan custodian at the Golan Technologies offices. "Even meesa!"
Office staff themselves were somewhat more communicative. "I remember when Mister Reven first came to Golan Technologies," said Clifton Breen, a Chiss working in the accounting offices who has been with the company since Year 8. "I suspected immediately that he would go far in this company. I was sure of it at the end of his first month. I didn't have to reject a single one of his expense forms, nor hound him to turn them in -- unlike some people I could name." Breen refused to specify exactly whose expense forms are chronically late.
