Biogrpahy Edit

Raymus Antilles was a member of the Rebel Alliance and the captain of the Corellian Corvette, the Tantive IV. In 0 BBY, Antilles was charged with transporting Princess Leia Organa to the planet Tatooine in order to retrieve retired Jedi knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and bring him back to Alderaan. The mission was also critical because the Rebels had acquired a pair of stolen plans relating to the construction of the Empire's newest space station, the Death Star. The Tantive IV was captured when the Imperial Star Destroyer Devastator locked onto it with its tractor beam. Darth Vader and the 501st Legion boarded the ship and captured and/or killed all of the Rebels present.

Vader personally interrogated Antilles, gripping him about the throat, demanding to know what happened to the stolen plans that were beamed to the ship. Antilles denied having any knowledge of the stolen plans, citing that this was strictly a consular ship on a diplomatic mission. Vader didn't believe him, but knew that he wasn't going to get any useful information out of him, so he broke his neck and slammed the body against the bulkhead of the ship. [1]

Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Captain Antilles' preferred weapon of choice was a blaster pistol.
