"...eventually everything will be taken away―as a punishment, or because the equipment’s supposedly 'defective', or we'll be told it was lost. Something like that. We'd managed to save up for a few things of our own, every now and then, until we realized they’d all meet the same fate. The Imperial major in charge of the mine sells them off and pockets the profit."
―Brel Ti Vorne to Queen Dalné and Leia Organa[src]

Brel Ti Vorne was a male miner on Onoam. He was chosen to be a representative for the miners when they meet Princess Leia Organa and Queen Dalné when they came to deliver equipment to help the miners in 3 BBY.


Leia Organa: "Please accept these gifts on behalf of all the miners. I intend to find a way to ensure that this time you keep them."
Dalné: "We both shall."
Brel Ti Vorne: "Your goodwill is a gift in itself."
―Organa, Dalné, and Ti Vorne about gifted mining equipment[src]

Brel Ti Vorne was a male miner on Onoam. He was tall and skinny.[1] In 3 BBY,[2] he was chosen to be a representative for the miners to meet Princess Leia Organa and Queen Dalné. When receiving mining equipment donated by the Princess, he confided to the two rulers that the Imperial overseers were stealing all the equipment and selling it to enrich themselves. They were outraged and promised to help, though Ti Vorne still seemed skeptical that anything could be done. He thanked them for their goodwill and added that they'd asked for other help, but have gotten none so far.[1]

The two rulers met with Moff Quarsh Panaka later that day to convince him to help the miners. Organa explained the problems Ti Vorne had outlined, but was careful not to mention his name. Panaka agreed to help, but shortly after they left his chalet, it was bombed and he was killed. Organa suspected that the miners' call for help, which Ti Vorne had mentioned, had resulted in the attack.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Brel Ti Vorne first appeared in Leia, Princess of Alderaan, a 2017 young-adult novel written by Claudia Gray that was released as part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi publishing program.[1]
