- "The war will go on without me. It won't without you."
- ―Antilles, to Leia Organa
A human male, Raymus Antilles hailed from the influential and peaceful planet of Alderaan. He was schooled in diplomacy and became a capable starship pilot. Eventually, he came to work for the House of Organa, being entrusted to transport its members across the galaxy. As such, he served in the command staff of Senator Bail Organa, husband to Queen Breha of Alderaan. Toward the end of the Clone Wars, Antilles piloted the CR90 corvette Tantive III for Senator Organa.

- "We intercepted no transmissions! This is a consular's ship! We're on a diplomatic mission!"
- ―Antilles' final words, to Darth Vader
Still a servant of the Organas, Captain Antilles proved himself an extraordinary leader, as he broke through countless Imperial blockades to get supplies to the Alliance to Restore the Republic. He continued to serve Princess Leia, after she succeeded her father as Senator of Alderaan. During the Battle of Scarif, he was given the plans to the Death Star and immediately rushed the plans to the princess and they escaped into hyperspace. However, Darth Vader's flagship, the Devastator, was right behind them and the crew was captured in the Tatoo system. A loyal guard to the princess, the captain perished protecting her identity when Vader boarded the corvette Tantive IV and strangled him.
