Around 21 BBY he was stationed on Lanteeb and served under General Lok Durd and was placed in charge of the effort to capture the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. He employed a Drivok bounty hunter to locate them on a world map. The Drivok managed to locate the Jedi in the village of Torbel. He was later killed by Durd for failing to capture the two.
