|Chronological and political information|
On Luke Skywalker's first visit to the planet Csilla, Peita Aabe escorted him and his companions to a meeting with the Four Families. While Aabe's deciding vote in the meeting did not grant the Skywalkers' request for free travel through Chiss Territory, he did suggest a compromise, offering access to the Expeditionary Library on Csilla as an invaluable resource in their search for Zonama Sekot.
In order to ensure that the Chiss Ascendancy remained outside the Galactic Alliance, Aabe order Ganet to kidnap and eliminate Soontir Fel's family, who were strong supporters for Csilla joining the Galactic Alliance. However, his plans were put to an end by Jacen Solo and Commander Irolia, and he was tried and imprisoned for his treason.
Behind the scenes
The character was created when Sean Williams appeared on the Sci-Fi and Cult TV Radio Show "Smeg Radio" broadcast on 2RRR in Sydney Australia. The hosts Peter Bryant and Abe Killian discussed with Sean how the book should open up with [paraphrase] "an Imperial Officer walking down a dimly light corridor, his boots echoing down the halls". Sean Williams then combined Peter and Abe's names and came up with 'Peita Aabe'.[source?]
