Tynnra Pamlo was a human female politician who represented the planet Taris in the Imperial Senate. She served in Civil Government of the Alliance to Restore the Republic as the Minister of Education and worked closely with Rebel Alliance Intelligence Service. She feared that an attack against the Galactic Empire and its planet-destroying Death Star would put Taris in mortal danger.
Biography[edit | edit source]
- "If the Empire has this kind of power, what chance do we have?"
- ―Tynnra Pamlo
Tynnra Pamlo hailed from the planet Taris, which she represented as a member of the Imperial Senate during the reign of the Galactic Empire. Though a member of the Senate, she was also a member of the Alliance to Restore the Republic and served as the Minister of Education in its Civil Government. In that capacity, she worked closely with Rebel Alliance Intelligence Service and received many reports about atrocities carried out by the Empire, including the Siege of Lasan, the sterilization of Geonosis, and actions on Ghorman. She worked with Airen Cracken to release counterpropaganda in hopes of gaining sympathy from resistance groups.
When the Alliance learned of the existence of the Death Star, an Imperial superweapon capable of destroying entire planets, Pamlo had no doubt of its existence but was wary of launching an attack against it. She wanted to consult with her people about it, and feared that the Alliance had no chance against such power. She also worried that an attack against the Empire would put her homeworld in danger of being destroyed. Shortly after the meeting on Yavin 4, Pamlo traveled back to Coruscant to publicly decry the Imperial battle station before resigning her office.
