Bran Foster was an associate of Blake from his initial period of resistance activity. He greeted the amnesiac Blake when Richie and Ravella brought him to the resistance meeting and informed Blake about his true history: That four years previously, the two of them had worked together but had been betrayed, resulting in Blake being brainwashed and forced to denounce the movement and most of his followers, including his brother and sister, being quietly executed. Foster tried to persuade Blake to rejoin the movement. After Blake had walked away to think, Foster called the meeting to order and introduced Dev Tarrant (who, unknown to Foster, was the man who had betrayed him four years earlier). Shortly after, a large number of Federation troopers arrived and surrounded the meeting. Foster told the group to offer no resistance and claimed the right as free citizens to be treated as civil prisoners, only to be shot and killed by a trooper.
