Saminalwala was a Fras and littermate of Saminalwasa. Both of them gave the impression of being extremely arrogant, which was in fact true. Both of the Fras' belonged to a group of pirates in the sector next to the planet Ananuru. When the RNA brainwashing virus appeared in an auction on the Ananuru Express, the two of them were paid by Secesh Trant, who was secretly working for the Destablization branch of Imperial Intelligence, to guard her while she stole the datatape during the auction. While Secesh attempted to escape with the datatape, they fought off anyone trying to follow her before being beaten by a group of Rebels.
