BiographyEdit

In 5 BBY, Nyklas was overseeing a construction project on the Imperial Hall of Heroes. He was also responsible for the purchase of the Wookiee slaves used to build the new wing.

Han saves Chewbacca

Solo stuns Nyklas to save Chewbacca.

During an exchange with the Trandoshan slavers that supplied the slaves, Nyklas discovered that Ssoh's starship had been disabled. Nyklas ordered his TIE/LN starfighters under the command of Lieutenant Han Solo to destroy the ship, but Solo belayed the strike order when he discovered the Wookiees onboard. Nyklas ordered Solo and his pilots to kill the survivors, but instead Solo delivered the leader of the revolt, a Wookiee named Chewbacca. Infuriated, Nyklas ostensibly removed Solo's flying privileges.

Returning to Coruscant, Nyklas whipped Chewbacca regularly, regardless of his performance. When Chewbacca rose up in anger against Nyklas, the Imperial commander drew his blaster and was only stopped from shooting the Wookiee by Solo. As the pair fled, Nyklas filed Solo's dishonorable discharge papers and swore revenge on them. However, Nyklas never obtained a chance as Solo and Chewbacca contributed to the downfall of the Galactic Empire Nyklas served.
