One stormy night while Thane is away on a mission, Stiv Kay makes his way into the drell's home. Thane's wife Irikah senses the imminent danger and tries to defend against him, but to no avail. Thane returns to a bloodstained house and a murdered wife.
Stiv Kay's batarian accomplices give up his name under Thane's torture. He receives a sniper bullet to the torso as he is walking along a crowded lane. He's defiant to the end as Thane walks up to him, taunting the drell how his wife "was sweet" and how her taste "was worth whatever [he's] going to do to [him]". As with the other conspirators, Thane puts him to death afterward.
