"Do all the Emperor's Moffs rate one of these?"
"Only Tarkin, as far as we know."
"A testament to his friendship with Sienar."
Anora Fair, Artoz, and Berch Teller[src]

Raith Sienar was a wealthy male engineer and starship designer who was active during the reign of Emperor Sheev Palpatine.[1] He was the head of Sienar Fleet Systems,[2] one of the Galactic Empire’s foremost military manufacturers.[3] Sienar produced the heavily customized Star Courier, the Scimitar.[4] It was Sienar who designed the original TIE starfighters, drawing influence from Kuat Systems Engineering's Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor.[1] According to Sava Korin Pers, Palpatine's luxury pleasure craft Imperialis might have been a custom job by Sienar himself.[5] Moff Wilhuff Tarkin was a friend of Sienar's. The insurgent Berch Teller attributed Tarkin's ownership of the corvette Carrion Spike to that friendship, although many other shipbuilders played a part in outfitting that vessel.[2]
