The Ante was a Givin infochant who worked in the Spire, a floating city hovering above the planet Anthan Prime. He resided in the underside of the Spire and was the sector's prime info broker. Shortly after, Chelli Lona Aphra visited him searching for information about Commodex Tahn, the mortician that buried Padmé Amidala. Aphra then returned to the Ante, this time searching for information about Luke Skywalker. Shortly after exchanging this info for a hefty amount of credits, Darth Vader and Thanoth attacked the outpost. When the Ante tried to exchange information regarding Vader and Thanoth's investigation, Vader redirected a blaster bolt into the Ante's chest, silencing him and eliminating any connections between Aphra and Vader.
