Captain Ryko Vant was an Imperial officer in command of the Imperial forces of Jerne City H.Q.


Sometime after the Battle of Yavin, Vant managed to capture Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa on Jerne, but was assaulted by guerrillas before he could take them to custody. As his stormtroopers were slaughtered, he fled back to the H.Q. with a jetpack. There he was met by Darth Vader, who brought him to Adony Station to watch Luke and Leia fall into a trap of Vader's devising. They survived, and Luke threw a proton grenade at the pair, killing Vant. The Dark Lord survived the explosion, though.
