Governor Tarkin

DETAILS

DESCRIPTION

An ambitious, ruthless proponent of military power, Tarkin became a favorite of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine and rose rapidly through the Imperial ranks. Shortly after the Empire’s creation, he was put in charge of the construction of the Death Star.

Tarkin saw the Death Star as a way to crush all dissent to the Empire’s rule — fear of the station’s planet-killing superlaser would keep the galaxy’s star systems in line. He demonstrated the station’s power by destroying Alderaan, but died soon afterwards when the Death Star itself was destroyed.
