When the commander Jasta Mason considered to join powers with House Corrino, Zarv was sent as an agent to the Imperial Governor of Deneb to discreetly feel out response to the Guild's proposal. Zarv unknown to himself went through a mental conditioning that would cease his life before revealing anything of harm to the Spacing Guild.
When he met the Governor, Zarv offered the possibility of the return of interstellar travel and suggested the governor contact his superiors so a meeting could be arranged with his principals.
