"The Tarkin family of Eriadu played a critical, but mostly offstage, role in shaping galactic politics."
Voren Na'al[src]

The Human Tarkin family consisted of several members from the world of Eriadu. They included Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, Shayla Paige-Tarkin, senator of Eriadu around 22 BBY, and Ranulph Tarkin, senator of Eriadu around 44 BBY. The Tarkins had a bitter, feuding relationship with the Valorums (at least the ones living on Eriadu); however, the Tarkins were integral in helping Finis Valorum be elected Chancellor of the Republic in the elections of 40 BBY.

They were the most powerful family of the Quintad, a group of five powerful families that ruled the planet Eriadu and originated on Corulag before emigrating to Eriadu around 900 BBY.

The Tarkins became related to the Motti family of Phelarion thanks to the marriage of Wilhuff Tarkin and Thalassa Motti.

Sander Delvardus was a member of the extended Tarkin family.

Behind the scenesEdit

Author John Ostrander originally envisioned Ranulph as the uncle of Wilhuff. However, The New Essential Chronology established them as cousins.
