BiographyEdit

Toshma Jefkin[2] served in the Alderaanian consular security, a force responsible for guarding and escorting Alderaanian dignitaries.[3] Because the royal family of Alderaan was secretly affiliated with the Rebel Alliance,[4] Jefkin himself was involved in the war against the Galactic Empire as a soldier of the Rebel Military.[2] In the year 0 BBY,[5] Jefkin was stationed aboard the Tantive IV, a CR90 corvette commanded by Captain Raymus Antilles and used by Princess Leia Organa as her consular ship.[2]

Death of a crewmate

Jefkin watches in horror as the crewmate who gave him the datacard is killed by Darth Vader.

After it was damaged in a perilous mission, the Tantive IV was docked aboard the Rebel MC75 cruiser flagship Profundity, where it underwent repairs.[6] However, the Profundity was sent to Scarif, where a team of Rebels attempted to steal the plans of the Empire's Death Star battle station. After the Profundity intercepted the rebel transmission of the Death Star plans, the redoubtable Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader boarded the cruiser. Having copied the stolen plans on a datacard, some crewmembers of the Profundity attempted to board the Tantive IV in time. The bearer of the the datacard, however, could not enter the corvette because of a jammed security door. On the other side of the door, Jefkin managed to get ahold of the precious device through a slight opening. Once in possession of the plans, he charged through the corridors of the Profundity until he reached the cruiser's docking bay and the entry hatch to the Tantive IV. The moment Jefkin boarded the corvette, he ordered the ship's launch.[1] Once the Tantive IV zoomed away, leaving the hangar behind, the security guard handed the datacard off to a woman who then took it to Captain Antilles.[2]
