"Spider's" fiancee Karina was part of the crew of DLS Lady Elise, one of the follow-on ships that went looking for DLS Reine Soleil, one of the missing "Twelve". Lady Elise disappeared somewhere in Khulam subsector, and Karina is presumed dead. A third ship, Mary Ellen Carter, searched for Reine Soleil and Lady Elise, but found no signs of either. Both are listed as MIA. Spider knows that Drifter's sister Margaret was on board Reine Soleil.
