- "Papa Toren thanks you for returning his property, stolen some time ago by the disgusting Imperials when they came to occupy this planet."
- ―One of Toren's winged associates speaks to Calrissian for him
Toren, known as Papa Toren, was a male crime lord who operated on the planet Castell. After Lando Calrissian recovered one of his trinkets, Toren coerced the smuggler into stealing the Emperor Palpatine's personal yacht Imperialis in order to pay off the rest of his debt. By the time of the New Republic, Toren and his elves were imprisoned at Megalox prison on the planet Megalox Beta. In an unsuccessful bid to escape the prison, Toren agreed to help the First Order Agent Terex to kill the Resistance pilot Poe Dameron and his Black Squadron and to storm Grakkus the Hutt's fortress. This plot failed and Terex abandoned Toren and his fellow gangsters to die under the weight of Megalox Beta's heavy atmosphere.
Age of the Empire
When the Galactic Empire arrived on Castell, a trinket of Toren was stolen by Moff Ssaria. Toren then got the smuggler Lando Calrissian to recover the trinket from Ssaria as a means of repaying his debt. Toren however reneged on his deal and told Calrissian that only ten percent of his debt had been eliminated. To repay the rest of the debt, Toren hired Calrissian to steal the Imperialis, the Emperor Palpatine's pleasure craft. Toren told Calrissian that all he wanted was the craft and that Calrissian could keep the craft's contents. During the meeting, Toren was aided by an elf, who acted as a translator between him and Calrissian.
Lando agreed and recruited Lobot, the Ugnaught scholar Korin Pers, and the alien clones Aleksin and Pavol to aid with the heist. Using stealth suits provided by Toren, they infiltrated the Sienar Fleet Systems Orbital Shipyard CC-24 and stole the yacht. After being pursued by a squadron of Imperial Star Destroyers, Lando and his crew discovered the ship's true identity and its Sith treasures.. Aleksin and Pavol were corrupted by a Sith mask aboard the ship and turned on the other crew. Aleksin killed Korin but Lando and Lobot managed to escape with the help of the bounty hunter Chanath Cha. After killing Aleksin and Pavol, Chanath destroyed the ship and the three escaped in escape pods.
