Imperial Nobles deal with non-Nobles/Non-Imperials all the time, this would be no different.

Never.

He must fight every person who ever challenges them, even little kids and animals. To do anything less would be such a disgrace that he would be forced to commit public suicide.

Re: Rogue 'planet' discovered

It was previously classified as a Brown Dwarf, but they now think it is younger than originally estimated, which makes it lower mass and thus a planet, not a star.
