In 1900 PD, Westerfeldt held the rank of Colonel and was assigned to the PRH consulate on Medusa (accredited to the one of tribal states in the Delta). He was the primary field operations officer for Operation Odysseus on Medusa. He set up false trails, even officially resigning from the PRH Army, and supervised the planned native religious and drug-fueled uprising the PRH intended to use as a stepping stone to seizing control of the Basilisk Terminus of the Manticoran Junction. He was in charge of the modern mekoha (native Meduan drug) production lab project (supervising its nominal staff of criminals, some Manticoran) and its incriminating record keeping. It was he who informed the lab's director of a planned raid by the incoming Native Protection Agency raid, leading to the destruction of the lab with a considerable loss of life.
He was killed by a Marine detachment from HMS Fearless at the chief underground cave hideout of the religious leader whose agitation was leading up to the uprising. He sent the message to the PRH consulate announcing that the native issurection had begun and that it was out of control, which led the Consulate to panic and instruct a Havenite Q-ship to depart orbit and leave the system in haste.
