"You don't seem fine. You missed at least two clear shots, and that's not like you."
"I took out two others."
"Yeah, but I took out three, and we both know my count beating yours is not normal."
―Tarvyn Lareka and Iden Versio[src]

Tarvyn Lareka,[2] designated TK-4601, was a human male who, after graduating from the Imperial Academy, served aboard the Star Destroyer Devastator as a junior member of Darth Vader's personal stormtrooper legion, Vader's Fist.[1] He stunned princess Leia Organa during her capture aboard the Tantive IV above the desert planet Tatooine and told another trooper to inform Vader they had captured a prisoner.[3]

Following the Battle of Yavin Lareka served as a lieutenant TIE fighter pilot in the Imperial Starfighter Corps aboard the Star Destroyer Determination.[2]
