Orinn Tathis was an Alderaanian politician.
During the early years of the Galactic Empire, Tathis served on the Council of Elders. Offworld when the first Death Star destroyed his homeworld, Tathis, as the only surviving member of the Council, returned to the Graveyard to recover the remote capable of recalling the roving armory Another Chance.
His first attempt was thwarted by Darth Vader's Operation Yavin Kill Two, forcing Tathis to hide inside Asteroid 7785. When it appeared safe, Tathis aided the Rebel Alliance search for the remains of the Royal Palace of Alderaan. Tathis then recalled Another Chance to the Graveyard and handed the ship and its weapons cache to the Alliance.
