After he graduated from the University, young Chan began working for his father's company. Whenever he got the chance, he would accompany his father on business trips. Chan preferred the trips to the less civilized sectors as they always managed to offer something interesting and this was one such trip. The usual mode of long distance transport was a Sienar L-500 Space Liner lightly armored to the legal limit and modified for the sake of luxury.

Since this was a government operation by the Empire in a remote system where pirate raids were not unheard of, an Imperial escort had been assigned to the Liner as per protocol. The escort was a single Imperial outdated Acclaimator Assault ship and two squadrons of TIE Interceptors that just happened to need to get to a system in the same sector as the Chans' L-500. Young Chan had been in contact with Imperial forces many times before on other trips, and had come to respect them. He boarded his father's space liner, and they set off for the week-long trip.

It was when the convoy dropped out of hyperspace in the system that they were attacked. Two squadrons of Rebel X-Wing fighters, two Y-Wing squadrons, a and a two heavily modified Nebulon-B Frigates stolen from the Empire. The convoy was hailed with a message from the [[Rebel Alliance]] demanding surrender. Chan's father refused to do so saying that he was on legitimate business and that he would not agree to the demands of terrorists. The Rebels immediately fired upon the L-500's bridge superstructure crippling the ship and killing Chan's father. The Imperial Acclaimator returned fire, but only managed to break the Rebel attack formation. The Rebel bombers tore into the L-500 stripping off layers of its hull. Luckily, Chan had been jammed into an escape pod by the ship's crew and launched out of the L-500. It was then that the Imperial Interceptor sortie from the Acclaimator engaged with the Rebels. Despite being outnumbered their experience far outmatched those of the Rebel fighters which broke off their attacks and fled. The Rebel ships realized that they was outmatched and made a jump to hyperspace, but the damage had been done.

It was when the convoy dropped out of hyperspace that they were attacked. Two squadrons of Rebel X-Wing fighters, two Y-Wing squadrons and a heavily modified Nebulon-B Frigate stolen from the Empire. The Frigate sent a message to the lead Corvette that the Imperial equipment they were carrying would be seized by the [[Rebel Alliance]] and to drop their cargo and surrender to the Rebels. Chan's father refused to do so saying that he was on legitimate business and that he would not agree to the demands of terrorists. The Rebels immediately fired upon the lead Corvette destroying the ship and killing Chan's father. The convoy returned fire, but only managed to break the fighter formation. The Rebel bombers tore into the Corvettes and freighters decimating them on by one. The Imperial pilots in their TIE Interceptors and the Carracks fared much better. Despite being outnumbered their experience far outmatched those of the Rebel fighters which broke off their attacks and fled. The Rebel Frigate realized that it was outmatched and made a jump to hyperspace, but the damage had been done.
   
The L-500 was left a crippled hulk drifting in space; its bridge severed from the core of the craft. It took about an hour for the Imperials to recover Chan's escape pod and bring him safely aboard. Survival, however, was not on his mind. What mattered was that the Rebel Alliance had murdered his father. Not only that, they had done it for nothing.

Many of the Bulk Freighters and Corvettes had been destroyed and those that were left were heavily damaged. They did not matter to Chan. What mattered was that the Rebel Alliance had murdered his father. Not only that, they had done it for nothing.
   
 
Shorty after this event, Chan returned home to Commenor to try and save his family's company and reputation. He returned to chaos.

The Battle of Commenor had already begun and the Empire could not hold the planet much longer. Chan raced to the family estate but found that the Rebels had already been there. There was a message left at the entrance that stated the Rebels were now the legitimate government on the planet and that this property has been confiscated by the Alliance because it's owner was believed to be sympathetic to the Empire. When he entered, he found nothing. The Rebels had looted the entire estate. Only seemingly worthless items of sentimental value were left behind. The business was as good as dead. Those that he had cared about was no where to be found. The estate's security bunkers were empty, but there were signs that indicated people had been living down there for quite a while before abandoning it and there was yet hope that his remaining family still lived. The family still had a considerable amount of credits in a secure account that was to be used in time of emergency so if they had left, they would still be well taken care of for years. But the dream was over. The life he had known was now gone.

[[The Battle of Commenor]] would see the installment of a Rebel government on Commenor for years to come. With nothing left, his company ruined, his entire estate confiscated, and his remaining family gone into hiding, Chan turned to the only hope he saw of peace and order in the galaxy - the Galactic Empire.

Chan was very impressed with his tutor in the Academy who was in the Imperial Army. Chan decided his place was in the Army and so was transferred to the Imperial Army Training Academy to continue his studies. After graduation, he was inducted into the ranks of the Army.

Chan did not draw much attention to himself among his peers, but he did make somewhat of an impression with the commanders of his Legion. Afterward he was given a series of rapid promotions (some through mostly good fortune). When it was decided that he was a capable soldier, he was commissioned as an officer directly under his former tutor. A short time after, Chan was given command of the Army Legion his mentor had overseen.

Over a year had passed before Chan received a message from his mentor who was curious as to where Chan had gone. Shortly afterward, he was contacted by the Imperial Army offering to allow Chan to return to duty. Chan decided to take the offer and returned to Imperial service.
