- "I'm pleased I was able to earn your trust… because now I can complete the job I was sent here to do!"
- ―Dunerz, to Leia Organa
Silam Dunerz was a Human male who served as a supply master in the 501st Legion, and held the rank of commander in the Galactic Empire's military by the time of the Galactic Civil War. At some point during the war, Dunerz was tasked with abducting Princess Leia Organa, a leading figure of the enemy Alliance to Restore the Republic. Knowing that the princess would be returning from the planet of Morton aboard the Redemption, a EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate in service to the Alliance Fleet, Dunerz laid a trap on her route.
Behind the scenesEdit
Silma Dunerz was created by Martin Fisher for the one-shot comic story Leia's Trust. In Fisher's original script, Dunerz was simply referred to as a "sector commander," but editors specifically made him a supply master.
