When Princess Leia Organa was stranded on the planet and forced to work as Lady Tarkin's housemaid, Nardo did not trust her. After watching her for a few days, he discovered her using the subspace transponder to get a message to Han Solo. Nardo fired on her, but missed, striking a nearby megonite moss display case, which exploded, killing him. Ironically, it had been Nardo who had insisted on keeping the display inside.
