STAR WARS: Dark Age of the Empire
Garren's Code Cylinder
A code cylinder is a common security device used by military officers, corporate executives, and politicians. It acts as a sophisticated keycard for secure areas. Each cylinder contained its user’s personal security clearance codes and data. It was not uncommon for high-ranking personnel to own multiple code cylinders, each with their own encrypted access codes. They were used extensively in the Galactic Republic, Empire, and New Republic, particularly to facilitate security measures. The devices, usually carried within a pocket or on one’s belt, used the same interface as a droid’s scomp link.
This particular code cylinder, currently carried by Garren Onasi, is supposedly of great importance. What information is currently contained on it is unknown, but according to Garren, it is the centerpiece to a great mystery.
