The biography I posted for the Baroness is correct, but incomplete. She's been an Imperial Intelligence officer under official cover for most of her career. While she's officially not a spy, and working to defuse the potentially explosive situation on Hofud, there's still at least one Tozjabr spymaster who she ran an operation against who wants her dead. She may be running agents as well as participating in negotiations at this time. Elements of the Imperium and the Border Worlds leadership recognize that having the HPA as part of the power structure may reduce tensions in this case. It's been suggested she may be trying to speak with the leaders in Ny Vanaas with a small party.
