- "Maybe you two haven't noticed, but Murkhana isn't Coruscant. The population here hates me. I sometimes think Murkhana hates me. I'm held responsible for every Imperial tax increase and every minor change to the legal system."
- ―The ambassador to Tarkin and Vader
A human female ambassador represented the interests of the Galactic Empire on the planet Murkhana fourteen years before the Battle of Yavin. When Wilhuff Tarkin and Darth Vader arrived on Murkhana, the ambassador greeted them and explained the situation on the planet. Due to the threat to her life posed by the locals, she wore stormtrooper armor.
