Tion was a member of the Galactic Empire who bore the title of Lord. Some five years before the Battle of Yavin, he was quartered aboard the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Devastator. The youngest daughter of Captain Hiram Zataire served as a lieutenant aboard Lord Tion's flagship.
Behind the scenes
Lord Tion originated in the 1981 radio adaptation of the original Star Wars film. His story was expanded upon in the fifth issue of the 2003 series of comics Star Wars: Empire. These stories are part of Star Wars Legends, previously known as the Expanded Universe, and are therefore not canon. However, Lord Tion and the Devastator being his flagship were both mentioned in the 2014 canon novel The Rebellion Begins written by Michael Kogge.
