"Their names are Oret Sturm and Jaryn Minoze. If you can get rid of them, I'll quit this and become an accountant like my dad."
Civius Bain, to a spacer[src]

Oret Sturm was a Human male spice smuggler who lived on Corellia during the time of the Galactic Civil War.


"I need to be freed. I owe two of the smugglers money. Until I'm free from that debt, I can't leave."
―Civius Bain, to a spacer[src]

By the time following the Battle of Yavin, Oret Sturm was a member of the ryll smuggling ring of the Chirq Council.[2] The ryll smugglers transported the spice onto Corellia and unloaded it at a bunker in the Vella plains where they refined the spice.[3]

The Ryll Smuggler Base.

Circa 1 ABY,[1] a young man by the name Civius Bain got indebted to the smugglers Oret Sturm and Jaryn Minoze and was forced to work for the smuggling ring. His desperate mother Olivia Bain later met a spacer and begged to rescue her son. The spacer accepted and headed to the Ryll Smuggler Base. The spacer found Civius Bain in the bunker but the young man explained that he could not leave the smuggling ring since he was still indebted to the smugglers. The spacer therefore killed both Oret Sturm and Jaryn Minoze, allowing Civius to finally escape.[2]
