Emissary Jochi Khasar was a Mongolian emissary (Asian explorer) on board the Aurora, his purpose was to search for the missing Mongolian vessel, the Degasi. He escaped from the ship in Lifepod 13, which crashed down in the Northwestern Mushroom Forest soon after launch.
Before the Aurora's crash, Khasar tells a crewmember that he finds a tendency amongst Alterrans to think that they have it best, but that their way is the only way to have it. Claiming that the Mongolian States have the freedom to work for themselves. The crewmember protests that most of them are contracters. Khasar asks who's ship they were living on, theirs or Alterra's. The crewmember replies that Jochi would do well to remember who's ship he was living on, referring to him as a Mongolian. Khasar simply says that according to his religious beliefs, the ship belongs to them all, and adds that the only difference is that they choose where to draw lines. The crewmember mutters that it was wise words for someone coming from a cowboy operation fighting over rocks in the far reaches of space.
After escaping into Lifepod 13, Jochi prays for his survival, until his Lifepod breaks into the atmosphere, his attitude changes, and instead asks to "return him", suggesting he knows he will die. It is likely he died when his Lifepod impacted the surface.
