"Whoever it was, they did not wish to be discovered. I suppose they favored a quick way out."
―Tothwin is fooled by Antilles' faked death[src]

Nils Tothwin was a human male who served as an Imperial Navy lieutenant during the Galactic Civil War. He served under Admiral Rae Sloane on board the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Vigilance.


Nils Tothwin served the Galactic Empire as a lieutenant in the Imperial Navy. He served under Admiral Rae Sloane on board the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Vigilance. Sloane considered Tothwin a poor excuse for an Imperial, believing that all the best officers had died at the Battle of Endor.[1]

In the aftermath of the Battle of Endor, the Vigilance was stationed above the planet Akiva in preparation for a meeting on the planet between surviving Imperials. Prior to the meeting, the Star Destroyer encountered the HH-87 Starhopper Rover above the planet. Sloane ordered that Tothwin have the Rover pulled in by the tractor beam after its pilot, Wedge Antilles, claimed to be a dead Devaronian named Gev Hessan. Tothwin did as ordered and prepared to fire at the ship if it tried to launch a proton torpedo at the Vigilance. The Rover did not fire, but self-destructed upon reaching the Star Destroyer, leading Tothwin to believe the pilot was dead. Sloane believed otherwise and ordered that he be found.[1]

Immediately after the summit was concluded, the Vigilance and two other Star Destroyers became embattled against a fleet of five New Republic ships. During this battle, Admiral Sloane was attempting to board the Vigilance in the yacht of Arsin Crassus. Tothwin sent her a transmission during this time, although it was cut short when the Vigilance received major damage to its bridge. The Vigilance was subsequently destroyed during the battle.[1]
