- "I beg Darth's pardon <choke> pardon me. I seem to be having trouble breathing."
- ―Taed Augustus, just before being killed by Darth Vader
Taed Augustus was the Director of Sienar Marketing Relations for Sienar Fleet Systems, a starship manufacturer, shortly after the Clone Wars. During the time of the Galactic Empire, Augustus made a presentation to Darth Vader about the specialized Imperial TIE Advanced x1 prototype starship. Augustus was Force choked to death by Vader when the Sith Lord took insult at Augustus's overtures of familiarity, calling Vader "Darth" more than once during the presentation.
Behind the scenes
Taed Augustus was first mentioned in the "TIE Advanced" entry in the in-game databank of the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 versions of the LucasArts video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, released in 2010.
