Dane Tizzin, coming from an influential family, was a young Lieutenant in the Imperial Navy. Due to his incompetence, Tizzin caused the explosion of a bay where two technicians were working on the maintenance of TIE fighters. The technicians were killed; Tizzin was not physically there and thus was unharmed.
Tizzin's family used their contacts to hide the Lieutenant's part in the disaster; instead the technicians were blamed for it. The technicians' child, Sapphire, discovered the truth and wanted to get revenge on Tizzin; however, she was forced into the life of a smuggler and was unable to meet with Tizzin.
Later, Tizzin became a Commodore and Naval attache to the staff of the Moff of Kira sector. He also became a target of an assassination plot, but a young Imperial officer, Lynx Reglis impersonated Sapphire, by then a Rebel agent, to save Tizzin.
