"They all look down on me. They're in my way. Especially Domina. She never recognized my genius."
―Silas Tagge, to Boussh[2]

Silas Tagge was a human male scientist who served as Head of Weapons Development at the Tagge Corporation during the Galactic Civil War. A member of the House of Tagge, he was an older brother of Domina Tagge, who chaired the company. Like their brother Orman, Silas coveted the leadership over the family company.[2] Between 3 ABY and 4 ABY,[1] his jealousy ultimately prompted him to hire the bounty hunter Boushh and his crew, using the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate as a proxy, to assassinate the other members of the Tagge Corporation's Executive Board during a meeting aboard the company's flagship, the Acquisitor. The plan, however, backfired, and the scientist was killed by his sister instead.[2]
