Spilik was Commander Karg's second-in-command during a mission to Kattada to arrest Princess Leia Organa. During the subsequent battle, he commanded the Imperial force following Karg's death and the destruction of their Sentinel-class landing craft. When the Rebels and their Kattadan allies made a ground assault on the Imperials, he was shot dead. With his death, the remaining Imperials surrendered.
