Tiel left SoroSuub after being blackmailed and fell to crime, ending up in the employ of Jabba Desilijic Tiure. She continued her accounting profession there under Mosep Binneed alongside Tessek and Loje Nella. Like them, she came to despise her employer and sought to regain her freedom.
Tiel was present in Jabba's Palace, asleep on Jabba's dais, when Leia Organa disguised as Boushh, attempted to free Han Solo from carbonite. She later witnessed Luke Skywalker's encounter with the rancor and was aboard the Khetanna when the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon broke out. Tiel rejoiced from Jabba never returning from the expedition, which ended with the Hutt's death and the Khetanna's destruction.
