Arriving there with no means of survival—no money, job, or home—the young Lobot was arrested by the Bespin Wing Guard for stealing and convicted of the crime. However, he requested that the Baroness-Administrator Ellisa Shallence preside over his case. Seeing potential in the young vagabond, Ellisa sentenced Lobot to fifteen years of involuntary service to the Cloud City community, rather than serve a lengthy prison term, and for him to undergo cyborg augmentation. Cloud City techs shaved Lobot's head, drilled holes in his skull, and then fitted him with a Biotech Aj^6 cyborg headband. Lobot would indenture himself to the city by becoming the first cyborg computer-liaison officer in its history. He became one of the most hardworking and loyal employees in Cloud City, and even when his sentence was fulfilled shortly before the fall of the Old Republic, he freely chose to continue serving his community. He was rewarded for his loyalty by being named chief administrative aide to the Baron Administrator.
